To Stop Dueling.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 9.—The
House is tired of afternoon sessions,
and to-day, adopted a lesolution dis
Mr. Glenn introduced a bill to-day,
aimed at the present method of work
ing up a duel so as to evade the law
which provides :
“From and alter the passage of this
act, if any person shall send or deliver
to another person, any messages, either
in writing or otherwise, the intention of
which is to lead to, or provkoc or
bring about, directly or indirectly, any
meeting or conferences between any
persons to arrange for the passage of
a challenge to fight a duel, or for the
purpose of bringing said parties
gethcr to lead to either ot such pur
poses beyond the jurisdiction of this
stat^, all such persons shall, upon
conviction, be punished as prescribed
in section 4,310 of the Code, or, if the
jury shall direct by their verdict im
prisonment in the penitentiary for any
time not less than one year, nor more
than five years.”
Why Was It Rejected?
At the recent national encampment
of the Grand Army of the Republic
a resolution was offered containing the
following clause, which was indica
tive of its intent and meaning:
“The pension roll is a roll of honor,
and it was never the purpose of the
people nor the spirit of the laws cm
acted by their representatives that
any man who proved false to the
oath of service by deserting his coun
try’s cause in time of war or other
wise deserving dishonorable discharge
should receive the honor and reward
of enrolment among the brave men
who suffered and were faithful.”
This resolution was submitted by
Gen. MacMahon of New York, one of
the bravest and most efficient of the
leaders of the federal forces in the
late war. It is impossible to lodge a
responsible objection against this pro
posed expression of the G. A. If. Jt
merely says that the brave and faith
ful men who suffered in the war
between the states deserve pensions,
but that the cowards, bounty-jumpers
and camp followers should not be
placed on the same footing as the
gallant fellows who did their duty.
And yet these resolutions were reject
ed by the national encampment of the
Sleeping Car Fares.
Mr. Fleming, of Richmond, has in
troduced a bill regulating the sleep
ing car service, fixing the price of a
berth at $1 per hundred miles, and
prohibiting letting down the upper

\Vii.Ki:si: \ 1:1:1:, I’a., Sept. ' HL—
The people in this city to night were
considerably agitated by a sharp
shock of earthquake, which occurred
atVIo o'clock. Buildings here, in

this evening, flic end was quiet ami
the dying man breathed his last as
peacefully as if falling into a light
sleep, lie had been conscious all
day until about a quarter of an hour
before the end. Mr. Cox's last con
versation was about tiro four territo
ries whose statehood lie imped to

and Arizona, and said something
about making a great effort in their
behalf at the coming session.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 10.—.Mr.
Ilufi returned to Atlanta to dny,Jand
was accompanied by Capt. Kofi
Sims as his friend. Mr. ’Hull’ set at
once to establish the good faith of his
efforts to reach Sulphur Springs, and
at midnight furnished the press a
Iengthly correspondence between him
self and Mr. Illicit to-day, in which it
is clearly shown that Mr. Huff' acted
strictly under the instructions of his
second in going to Columbus, from
which point it became impossible to
reach Sulphur Springs till Monday
morning after the Patterson party had
returned home. Further develop

The Watermelon Convention.
An important meeting of the Geor
gia Fruit and Melon Growers Asso
ciation will he held at Albany, Ga.,
to-day and to-morrow. A call l'nr
this convention was issued by the ex
ecutive committee, about a month
ago, and melon growers front Middle
and Eastern Georgia tire especially
invited to attend this convention.
Matters of vital inlercs to all melon
and fruit producers will he considered.
Among subjects to he taken tip are:
1. Dishonest and irresponsible com
2. Excessive freight rates north of
the Ohio and west of the Mississippi.
•'1. Overcharges on rates named in
bills of lading.
4. Irregularities in weighing ears
and inaccuracies in the weights as
All parties having complaints to
make against commission merchants,
or transportation companies, are ex
pected to present them with proper
proofs in each case.
The association is determined to
weed out the thievish produce brokers
who continue to fleece the melon
growers from year to year.
An Experienced Opinion.
Advertising is to a genuine article
what manure is to land—it largely
increases the product. Thousands of
persons may he reading your advertis
ement while 3-011 are eating or sleep
ing, or attending to your business;
hence, public attention is attracted,
new customers come to you, and if
you render them a satisfactory equiv
alent lor their money they continue
to patronize you and recommend you
to their friends.
My editor’s absence last week pre
vented a change of ad., but there is
no change in my principles of trade.
Everything at lowest prices-for Cash.
This month is the cairn before the
storm in the millinery line. People
are casting about for new styles and
goods and above all for the best place
do not boast ot “an immense stock
to be sold bcloiv cost in 30 days;”
that is a chestnut. No one believes
it, but if you wish the cream ot the
market in stylish goods at prices that
will make $2 equal $3, every time and
anywhere, I beg you to remember my
claim and petition for your trade.
Not far away—only a few steps
down on lower Broad.
Mrs. oJeimie Carroll,
Lower Broad Milliner.
In retiring from the firm of Fite k Beverly,
I do so with reluctance, as my connection
with this business and my partner, for the
past year and a half, has been of the most
pleasant nature. Mr. Iluverly, my successor,
needs no introduction to this community
and the trade at large, as he is well known
as a gentleman of sterling worth, and as a
thorough mil! and business man has but few
superiors. He will be as well prepared as
heretofore to accommodate the trade, and I
bespeak for him that support that has been
so liberally extended this mill in the past.

The cotton exporters of this city are
seriously thinking of re covering with
jute bagging the cotton coming here
in cotton bagging, and for a double
reason that the cotton bagging does
not afford sufficient protection against
damage and loss in weight, but prin
cipally because they can make a hand
some profit by bringing the weight of
the rated tare allowance up to 4
pounds in every 112, thus making a
net profit of about do cents to (iO
