Thomasville heard yesterday after
noon of the death of Mrs. Rhetta
Hansell. The news carried sorrow to
every household in the town. The
rich and poor will mingle their tears
together. The humblest and poorest
will, perhaps, next to those allied to
her by the closest and dearest ties
known, feel her loss most. She was a
ministering angel among these unfor
tunates for years, quietly and gently
going about doing good, relieving the
distressed and comforting those whom
the world too often passes by. Sad
faces were everywhere seen as the
news rapidly spread. And it was gen
uine heartfelt sorrow. The remains
will reach here at S ; 3° *his afternoon,
and will be conveyed to the residence
ot Judge Hansell. Notice ot the hour

take place, will be sent around in the

All Thomasville will be out at the
opening of the season at the opera
house to-morrow night. The minstrels
played in Jacksonville on Friday night.
We have only space to take this brief
extract from the Times Union :
“The expression, 'a crowded house,’
is very elastic. It doesn’t always mean
exactly what the words would imply.
But the expression fails utterly to de
scribe the audience which greeted the
Haverly minstrels at the Park opera
house last night. There was not a
vacant seat in pit, parquet, circle, box,
or balcony, and standing room was at
a premium long before the curtain
went up. The audience waif a repre
sentative one for . Jacksonville, and it
enjoyed the entertainment thoroughly
It was more liberal in its applause
than usual, and if it wasn’t in good
humor at the start, it fairly overflowed
with it when the curtain went down for
the last time.”
A Projeotod Railroad.
While Thomasville is cogitating
over the situation—seeing her busi
ness drift away for want of compel!
tive rntes here, Albany, not satisfied
with three roads, and a navigablo
stream besides, led on by that tireless
worker, Col. NelsOu Tift, is reaching
out for another road. The last issue
of the Cordelcan, says:
“The road from Albany to Hmvkinsvillc,
which tyill run through t’ordclc will add
a great ileal to the trade and development
of Cordete. Col. Nelson Tift has got as
much dogged perseverance as any man in
Georgia, and will certainly make it success
of this road. Our people will do all in their
power to secure its curly completion. Haw
kinsvillc and Albany both wish connection
with Cordele, because at this point compe
tition is always secured, as two independent
lines make cheap freight rates.' 1
Col. Tift was shrewd enough, when
the road was built from here to Alba
uy, to get his town made the eonipc
titivc point, leaving Thomasville a
way station—and which she has been
ever since. This section will soon be
covered with all the railroads which
it can support, and then, as a matter
of course, capitalists and others will
stop putting money in new roads; and
it looks very much ns if tho demands
of this section will be satisfied, and its
capacity to sustain additional roads
reached, without Thomasville ever
being touched by competing steel
Cotton Shipped 300 Miles, at 55
Cents per Bale.
They arc shipping cotton from Col
umbus to Savannah, three hundred
miles, at 55 cents per bale. Cannot
Thomasville see in this what competi
tion would do for .her ? And yet the
merchants, business men, property
holders, and all others who are sup
posed to be interested iu building up
the trade of the place, hesitate, hold
back, and act as if there was nothing
to lie gained by a competing line of
road. When will Thomasville wake
up, on this subject? The awakening
will be too late, when warehouses and
stores are dosed, and the trade of the
town diverted to other places. Wo
have tried, faithfully, earnestly and
persistenly tried, for years, to show
the business men of Thoinasvillo the
danger which menaces them. Aud
this danger is more apparent every
year. To say that we have not
enough capital here, to do something
in the way of securing competition
in rates, is saying what every one
knows is not true; and to say that
there is no man, or number of men,
who arc, by their ability and business
qualifications equal to the task of
grappling with the situation, is a re
flection on dozens of men in Thomas-
villc. Then why, may w<? not well
ask, has not something been done here
before? And this question is pointed
and direetod, not at one man—
nor two or three men, but to
the leading capitalists, business men
nnd property holders of the town. If
over a town needed some hold, but
sagacious mnn, to come to the front,
to disenthral the place from the leth
argy and fatal inaction which has—up
to this hour—characterized it, that
town is Thomasville. Is there a Mo
