What of the Night?
The Railroad Outlook.
A. B. asks what is the prospect for
a new railroad. It is generally known
that a number of leading gentlemen
stand ready to invest at least $100,-
000 in the enterprise. Matters are
gradually, but, perhaps, neccessarily
slowly, assuming shape. Thero is, as
every one knows, a feeling of distrust,
on the part of capitalists, in reference
to making investment, just now, in
Georgia railroads. This distrust, and
hesitation, is traceable to the threat
ened unfriendly, not to say harsh
measures being agitated in the legis
lature against railroads. It is fair to
presume that no such legislation will
pass the present legislature. When
this threatened danger is passed, as it
soon must be, there is every reason to
hope, and believe, that Northern cap
ital will bo forthcoming to aid us
in the construction of the proposed
line. In the meantime the friendB
of the movement say they arc watch
ing the points and will, nt the proper
time, move vigorously In the matter.
This, we understand, is about the sit
There is, however, in addition to
the recognized timidity of capital,
another obstacle to overcome. It is
a recognized fact, that the great
corporations which have, already, a
firm grip and grasp on a large portion
of Georgia territory, are opposed to
the construction of new and .compet
ing lines. This, also, has to he met
and overcome—if possible.
Before dismissing the subject, wo
may be pardoned for expressing the
opinion, that this last difficulty, rich,
powerful and determined as nmy he
the great corporations which permeate
Georgia, may he overcome.
Wo make these suggestions, as lo
the be-st mode ot procccduro:
1st. Have the one hundred thous
and subscribed in proper legal form.
2nd. Make an assessment on the
shares sufficient to raise money enough
to have the liuc surveyed.
3rd. Procure the right of way, by
deeds, canvassing, at the same time,
the adjacent territory along the line,
for subscriptions of land and money.
4th. Send a representative man
or men—to New York. Let them
say to capitalists.
“Here is our charter; here arc
deeds to a right of way, 200 feet wide;
here is what is pledged along the line;
here is the survey, and estimated cost;
here is a subscription list for $100,-
000, which is worth one hundred cents
on the dollar.” Supplement this
with maps, showing tho country, and
statistics as to its resources, add capi
tal will be found ready to cmbnrk in
the enterprise. What we have sug
gested ran be done; and then, hav
ing thus put the ball in motion, there
is every reason to anticipate success,
no matter from what source opposi
tion may, come. If the line of action
suggested is 'carried out—and we
sincerely hope that it, or some better
plan, will bo—Thomasvillo is certain
to get a new outlet. These sugges
tions arc modestly and respectfully
referred to the gentlemen who are
recognized as the leaders in this move
ment. We honestly believe if they
are carried out that the new road will
he a certainty.
Another Riding Party.
There was another riding party
Thursday night. They are getting to
bo very popular. The moonlight
nights are too lovely not to be en
joyed out doors, 'file atmosphere is
bracing and cool, and a sweet fra
grance prevadcs the soft night air.
Tho songs and merry laughter keep
time to the patter of the horses hoofs.
The party rode several miles around
the boulevard which surrounds the
city. Several places iu town were
serenaded when the party returned.
Mr. S. L. Mallard, and Mrs. II. W.
Hopkins were the chaperones. The
others were, Misses Rosa Neal, John
nie Sloan, and George Mitchell. The
gentlemen were, Messrs. Charley
Graves, C. S. Bondurant, Charley
Smith, Norric Harlv, and Maurice
To the Editor of the Times-Enterpriee:
I notice the statement made by
Messrs Wright and Hayes, of the
finance committee, shows a bonded
indebtedness, due in 1917, of$i5,ooo,
and that the liabilities of the town arc
817,735, and the estimated resources
This is the way the committee put
The resources of the town, as put
down by committee, must be estimat
ed. Why not put down an estimate
of the expenses of the town for the
year 1S89, and show the difference
between the resources and expenses 2
Then the people could see what bal
ance would be carried to the payment
of the debts.
As it now stands, it would appear
that the town would be able to pay
towards the extinction of the debts
$21,669, which would extinguish the
debt in less than two years.
This, of course, is a fallacy; lorjwhen
the expenses of the town is deducted
from the resources, perhaps only a
small balance would Dc left, to be ap
propriated to the payment of the
Will the committee give an estimate
ol the expenditures of the town, item
izing the same, so that die people may
see what becomes of their money, and
what balance, if any, will be left to be
applied to the liabilities ot the town as
stated by the committee ?
In tho Sweet Byc-and-Byc.
‘‘How’s business? ’ the reporter ask
ed Mr. Strickland, "ho represents
Davis Bros., yesterday.
"Very good,” said the gentleman,
as the curling smoke of a ‘‘Henry
Clay" ascended, while he rested his
heels on the railing running along the
front piazza at the Stuart.
"I have sold to-day,” continued Mr.
Strickland, “to a gentleman in Thom-
asville, the finest and costliest piano
I have ever sold; and I have sold
many very fine pianos.”
Here the gentleman knocked the
ashes from his cigar, and said, look
ing over at the jail:
“When is the jail to be moved;,”
‘‘In the sweet bye-and-bye,’’ hum
med the reporter, as he, also, surveyed
the county’s prison.
A Useful Citizen.
Mr. N. Haddix is an old gentlemen
who came to Thomasvillc several years
ago, so enfeebled that he had little
hopes of ever being able to recuperate.
The climate, however, put him on his
feet again, and he is now an active,
sprightly old gentleman, who feels that
he cannot do or say too much for
Thomasville. As a consequence, he
has mailed many of our pamphlets
to friends and acquaintances in the
cold section. Ifc informs us that he
never misses a day sending off our pa
per to some one, and these lines are
spggpstcd by a response which lie re
ceived from sending a late issue of the
Times-Enter prise. The writer, an
old gentleman iu Cheviot, Ohio, says:
“I see your mayor published a call
for a mass meeting for the people to
take a vote on the question of a pub
lic park. I am iu favor ol public im
provements. I also see by your paper
that they hope the bloody shirt hon
ker will be defeated. I hope lie will,
and I hope the state will guard well
her rights in tho trial of Nagle, who so
justly killed Terry. Now, Mr. lladdix,
I am plesed with your paper, and hope
this will find you well.”
The conductor, with his trainer, was
promptly on the ground, at Monti-
cello, Thursday afternoon, at tho hour
appointed lor the foot-race; .but as the
lawyer failed to put in an appearance,
the referee declared the conductor the
winner, and the stakes were turned
over to him.
Rev. T. A. Barrow, of Mitchell
county, will preach in the Baptist
church Sunday moruiug and again at
night. He is a brother ot cx-l. T nited
States Senator Pope Barrow, and a
brother-in-law, of the lion. J. L.
Hand, of Pelham,
Mr. Editor:—There is more in
terest felt in the success of the Cordelc
railroad than is generally expressed.
If you know anything about it,
suppose you say something in your
paper, that will show the public its
present status. You are presumed
to he on the inside of every important
enterprise for tiie benefit of the town.
Indeed,you are regarded ns the special
champion of Thomasville, having in
the past, shown your faith by your
works. If the prospect is encourag
ing, everybody will be gratified. If
not, everybody will he sorry. The
principal stockholders arc known to
he men of wealth, intelligence and
enterprise, and the general silence on
the subject has thrown a sort of gloom
over the public mind, that is very de
pressing. There may he a good rea
son for this, if so just say so, and wc
will all take courage and hope for the
best. A. 15.
Messrs. Lee Brown and Will Taylor
have sold the handsome private resi
dence on the corner of Love and
Warren streets, to Mr. John W. Coch
ran. Thomasville real estate keeps, as
Plunkett would say, “cr moving.”
The railroad bridge of the Augusta,
Tallahassc & Gulf Railway, across the
Ocklockonce river, is taking on shape.
All the piles of the bridge proper have
been driven and work is now progress
ing on the draw pier. The draw will
be one hundred feet long and will
swing in the centre. This week, the
work of laying the timbers will begin,
and in six or eight weeks the rails will
be laid and the bridge completed.
As soon as expected cargoes of rails
arrive, the road will be built inft Tal
lahassee with a rush.—Floridian,
Come on to Thomasville.
The syndicate previously reported
as purchasing the Columbus Southern
Railroad, and to make it a part of a
through lino from Chattanooga to
Florida, have applied to the Legisla
ture at Atlanta for a charter for the
Georgia and Tennessee Railroad
Company, with powers of construc
tion and consolidation with the Chat
tanooga, Rome and Columbus, the
Columbus Southern, and other roads,
and to conucrt with the Georgia,
Midland & Gulf railroad, by the ex
tension of the Chattanooga, Rome
and Columbus, from Carrollton, to
Warm Springs, and the construction
of a line from Dawson to the Florida
const south of Thomasvillc,—Maufac-
Why should not this lino be brought
to Thomnsvillc ?
Messrs. McIntyre and Alexander
both voted for the resolution to ap
point a committee to confer with the
lessees, in reference to the claims for
betterments. This is a step in the
right direction. The question should
be settled—settled promptly and
