Miss Millie Rutherford in speaking
of the beautiful sights seen in tbe old
world on this tour, said: “It is lm
possible to answer iu one word, for the

of Christian IX. of Denmark and the

We visited the Palace in Copenhagen
just a few days before tbe home gath-

peace and love reigned throughout it.
Tbe Princess of Wales had scratched
her name upon the windows of her

go with her husband,the Czar of Russia,

Mr. Tom Gerdine, who made quite
au extensive tour of tbe continent, was
high iu his praises of many scenes that
passed before him, and said that he
could hardly tell what did impress him I follows *
most deeply, so many and varied were Section
the attractions that presented them- 1
However, he was of tbe opinion that

Mr. Smith, of Decatur, made a abort
speech iu advocacy of bis substitute.
He believed that tbe Farmers’ sub
stitute did not cover tbe ground neces
sary, a .d hoped it would not pass.
Mr. Twitty, of Jackson, called the
previous question, which was sustained.
Mr. Hill, of Meriwether, *3 chairman
of the committee who reported favora
bly on the Berner bill, was allowed
twenty minutes to, conclude the argu
ment. ' V#
Mr. Berner said considering the fact
that about six opponents of the bill had
been allowed to speak against the bill,
and the house had called tbe previous
question without allowing but one or
two of the advocates to be heard, he
moved that Mr. Hill’s time be extend
There was some objection at first, but
it was finally withdrawn, and Mr. Hill
proceeded with his argument. He
spoke for over an hour and a half, and
it was recognized as one of the ablest

The vote on the Farmers’ substi
tute was then taken, and it was lost by
a vote of 74 to 77.

The Smith bill was then adopted by
an aye aud nay vote of 90 to 63.

Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 2,—[Special.]—
The stand taken by the Banner on
the railroad question has been thor
oughly endorsed by the House, and will
be by the Senate.
The fight on the Berner bill was a
long, hard fight and ended yesterday in
the adoption of tbe Smith substitute
which is almost exactly the Berner sub
The r&itroad men didn’t like this at
all, seeing that the bill adopted was no
milder than the Berner substitute.
So they pulled their forces together
for a last grand rush on the batteries of
And that grand charge in the shape
a motion to reconsider met with a
signal failure this morning.
As was expected, a motion ito recon
sider the Berner bill was made this
'Mr. Huff, of Bibb, spoke as follows,
after making the motion to reconsider
“I have been in the legislature of
Georgia for six years, and this is the
first time I ever made a motion to re
consider, and I do so now because this
should receive the complete and abso
lute attention of the house, and should
be discussed thoroughly and entirely.
If any subject is important it de
mands absolute and entire discussion,
and this is one of .the most important
measures that has been brought be
fore the house in a long time. I be
lieve a measure so important as this
should, if neccesary, receive three
week’s discussion instead of three days.
He then proceeded to attack the line
of speech made by Hill, of Meriwether,
saying it would do for a court house,
but it was not the kind of speech that
should be used in the Georgia legisla
In the course of his remarks he said
that if the railroads would not give just
rates, let the railroad commission run
them down and crush the railroads
Mr. Berner took issue with him on
that, and said that when the aailroads
were right he was with them, and it
was unconstitutional to try and crush
out any industry, and his bill asked for
no such legislation—all he wanted was
Mr. Hufi asked if local rates were not
now low enough; and when Mr. Bern
er answered that he did not know, the
gentleman from Bibb seemed to think
be had gained a great victory.
When he had finished Mr. Berner
made a forcible and eloquent speech
He said that the wires were now hot
with news that the Georgia legislature
had taken a stand agaiust monoyoly
and combines, and asked if they would
stand by their actions yesterday like
men, or turn cowards today.
He moved that the motion to recon
sider belaid on the table.
Mr. Hill, of Meriwether, called for
the ayes and nays, which was sustained
The vote to table the motion to re
consider, was ayes, 76, nays 70.
Mr. Smith, of Decatur, was excused
from voting. _ . . .....
Tbe eyes of the people of Georgia are
now turned upon the Senate.
Will the Senate pass the Smith
bill?” was aBked of a leading Senator
this morning. “Yes,” he replied, “and

Halifax, N. S., Oct. 2.—The most
distrous tire that has visited Halifax
for y ;axA broke out before 11 o’clock p.
m., in the Merlin planing' mill, on < Tay

In a few minntes the place was all

breeze from the north carried showers
of live sparks +o the buildings, vessels
and wharves sonth of the fire. The
whole department was called out, and
then the engines from Dartmouth came

Within an hoar Merlin's mill. Wil

agent of the Huliiax broom factory. J.
B. Neilly & Co., commission merchants,
and 8hortford Bros., oil stores.
Large quantities of petroleum were

was prevented by rolling oil into the
dock. The fire also spread simultan
eously to the south of the wharf and
soon tbe immense fish warehouse of
John Toylor & Co., were a prey to the
flames. By 2 o’clock the whole block
from John Cronin’s, 011 the south, to
the north side of Hamilton’s wharf, on
t]ie north, almost adjoining the Cunard
wharves, hud been destroyed.
A score of schooners at the burning
wharves and tho.e to the north were

Disastrous Prairie Fire.
Ellendale, N. D m Oct. 2.—A courier
arrived from Fort Yates with an ap
palling story of a prairie fire which
swept along the Missouri river for
miles. The fire was set by a searcher
after Buffalo bones, who, finding the
grass hindered him in his business, ap
plied a match to it, and the conflagra
tion got beyond all control aud burned
to the water’s edge. The fiumee ran up
and down the Missouri aud a loug dis
tance west of it, burning over a strip
800 miles long and 100 miles wide. The
great fire destroyed farm houses, barns,
granaries, thousands of tons of hay and
numerous herds of cattle and horses.
It is impossible to estimate the loss, bnt
it is feared it will reach at least $300.-
