We made a visit up to Blackstock’s
works, on this end of the Gainesville,
Jefferson & Southern Railroad, on last
Saturday. We were forcibly reminded
of the fact that it was not half as hard
to get to as the first trip we made to
his works, sometime last spring. Then
it took the best part of a day to go
and come ; now it is but a short drive,
and you come to the line where it
crosses the Hog Mountain road just
above the Shockley place. The con
tractor is doing good and faithful work,
and the road bed will require but little
work to make it ready for the cross
ties. We noticed that the grades
appear somewhat higher, and they are
more apparent at a glance than on the
first of the line finished. We learn
that this is due to the fact that the
engineer now in charge, Capt. Collier,
has increased the grade in several in
stances, and in this way made the
work lighter. As it was Saturday,
but few of the hands were at work, and
all quit at dinner for the week. The
average railroad hand does not work
more than five days in the week, and
a good many not more than four. But
they are kept busy while they are at
it, and their working is done with great
system ; no unecessary labor is done ;
every movement counts, and either
puts dirt into position where it is
needed or gets it out of the way. We
were told that there were about thirty
hands on the works that week, and.
for the force, Mr. Blackstock has been
moving right along. This week the
force ha3 been greatly increased,
numbering fifty-five ou Wednesday
morning, and sixteen were turned off.
and have hired themselves to Mr.
Henry D. Human, to pick out his cot
ton. Mr. Biackstock says they con
tinue to come in every day, some of
them from as far down the country as
Wilkes county. He expresses biin
self as perfectly satisfied upon the
labor question, and has no fears but
what be can get as many bands as be
wants from nowon. This week some
of his squads reach almost to the river,
and ho told us on Wednesday that he
had no doubt but what lie would reach
the river next week. When that point
is reached the road will be graded from
there toGaincsville, with the exception
of two rock patches in Mr.BUckstock’s
section and the gaps in the other two
contractor’s sections on the Gaines
ville end, all of which will be finished
before the iron will be ready for it.
We learn that the contract for iron
calls for and only five miles can be
delivered per month, so that before we
can get the iron Mr. Biackstock will
be in less than three milesof Jefferson.
We suppose that it will not be long
until track laying is.commenced at
Gainesville, as some iron has already
arrived, and we presume that the
supply will be equal to the demand
for it. We have not been able to get
any definite information in regard to
the progress over on the main line, but
can say that Mr. Sage is pushing
ahead and is now at Judge Park’s,
about a mile from Ilosch’s Store. Mr.
Jackson has quit work down at Laura
City, in order to gather his crop, and
we are not informed as to what he will
do when he finishes that work. Upon
the whole, we can say that onr rail
road prospects are indeed promising,
and wa are daily lessening the gap
between our town and the outside
A New Town.
Last Tuesday was a big day in the
lives of lots of our citizens in more
than one respect. But it will be more
particularly remembered in the future
bj r the citizens of these parts as the
biithday of anew city, for on that day
the Mayor of Gainesville came down
to Jefferson and bid off for Mr. M. M.
Sanders, of his town, lot No. 5 of the
Long land. Wc presume that it is to
be annexed to our ambitious neighbor
as a surburb, and that It was bid off
by the Mayor so that lie could claim
jurisdiction over it. For a long time
this lot of land has been spoken of as
the most likely place upon which to
looate a depot between the junction
and Jefferson. It is almost equally
distant from each, being eight miles
from the junction and about seven
from Jefferson. It is well located for
a town, and the neighboring country
can support a large population. It is
evident, and we can almost say that it
is an open secret, that it was bought
because it was known to the buyers
that a depot would be located on it,
which fact was not generally known,
else it might have brought more money.
We learn that the ground will be
surveyed and laid off into lots in a few
days, and further that there will be a
steam saw mill located on the place
within two weeks, and that it-will not
be long until there will be houses there
ready for the occupants. We do not
know what this new town will be called,
but as it is more than probable that it
will be the largest new place on the
road, with due deference, we suggest
that it be called Candler. That it will
be a place, and an important one, no
one who knows the location and the
surrounding country will deny. We
shall be seriously disappointed if it
does not reach several hundred in
habitants before it isayearold. Here’s
luck to the new city, and may it be as
prosperous and reflect the energy and
enterprise of its namesake.
It has been suggested by some of
our citizens that when Mr. Blackstock
gets to the river with his grading force,
that, instead of commencing on this
side and working on down to this place,
it would be better, and sait those in
terested, for him to at
this end of the line and work to the
river. It is high time that the depot
at this place was located, so that the
town authorities could lay off streets
to it and have them put in order.
Land owners could tell then the value
of their property ; lots could be laid
off facing on the new streets, and
parties could buy and commence
making arrangements to improve them.
As it is now, you would hardly guess
that a railroad was just outside of our
corporate limits and coming nearer
every day. There is but little indi
cation upon our streets that we arc
soon to he awakened from our Rip
Van Winkle sleep and ushered into
the busy outside world. We are not
making the necessary arrangements
to receive so important a visitor as the
iron horse, and we verily believe that
some of our people think that when he
comes it will be in a hired team from
some of the Gainesville livery stables.
We should not be caught napping;
every inducement should be offered to
men and capital to come and abide
with us. With the advent of the
locomotive will come the command
that the old things must pass away,
and it behooves us to be making ready
for the change. Now that we are
about to couple on to the living world
“ for sure.” we can well afford to
anticipate our future and put on a few
metropolitan airs. For instance, if
our houses are made of logs wc should
put on an imposing plank front and
give it a coat of whitewash. We just
mention this so that you can catch our
idea. By all means let us avoid the
impression that the terminus of the
most important narrow guage railroad
in the State, to-wit: the Gainesville,
Jefferson, Jug Tavern & Great South
ern, is in the woods. Our capitalists
certainly do not look at their interests
in the proper or paying light, or they
would have made more progress in
this matter. When the railroad gets
here we ought to have houses to put
the people in that it will bring, and
provide for them some place to do
business. It is important that we
should commence to attend to these
pressing matters at ouce. It will
save time and money in the end. Let
the depot be located at once. The
town authorities should then locate and
open out streets to it, and parties who
desire to buy lots and improve them can
determine what to do.

The amount and quality of tho land
sold on last Tuesday brought quite a
large crowd of people together from
other counties as well as this one.
Sheriff McElhannon opened out the
day’s proceedings by selling the Eads
land. It was bought by Mr. J. R.
Crane, of Athens, for §460.
A mule was then sold under a mort
gage fi. fa., and was knocked ofTtoG.
W. Tanner, of Ilall count)', for §7l.
The Long place was then put up
and sold in lots, as follows : Lot No.

5 to M. M. Sanders, of Gainesville,
for §1,605. Making the whole place,
containing 510 acres, bring §4,865, or
just a little less than §9.50 per acre,
in the woods.
The next lands sold belonged to the
estate of F. M. Holliday, deo’d. The
home place was knocked off, after
some spirited bidding amongst the
heirs, to Mr. John Holliday for §3,001.
The Mary Holliday dower tract was
bought by Mr. CrofT Wills for §1,500.
Making the whole place, containing
520 acres, bring §4,501, or something
over $8 per acre.
The Williamson home place, con
taining 400 acres, was bought by Mr.
E. J. Sharpe for §4,500, and brought
over $lO per acre. The mills were
sold to Mr. I. T. Austin for §1,300,
which was considered a bargain.
The J. D. Johnson place, containing
190 acres, was knocked off to J. R.
Shields for §2,511. Something over
§l3 per acre.
The house and lot in Jefferson, be
longing to the Watson estate, was
bought by Dr. W. A. Watson for §BOO.
The lands belonging to the estate of
W. D. Smith, dcc’d, sold as follows:
Lot No. 1. containing 371 acres, was
sold to S. M. Shankle for §2,075. Lot
No. 2, containing 217 acres, to S. M.
Shankle for §2,056. Making the ave

220 acres, was bought by J. C. Hunter
for §1,635. The Cherry tract, con

35 acres, to John Venable for §309.
Making the whole place, containing
405 acres, bring §2,594, or a little over
§6 per acre, which was cheap as dirt.
The Thurmond and Saul lands were
The total number of acres sold was
2,697, and it brought $24,362, or an
average of over $9 per aerc. The
lowest average per acre was $5 and
the highest sl3 per acre. Value of
other property sol J, $1,417. Making
grand total of all property sold on
that day, $25,779, and it could not be
bought to-day for $30,000. Some of
the property brought its full value and
some of it was bought cheap.
We notice that most of the sales
were made to our own citizens, and
not to parties from other counties, as
a great many thought would be the
case. Also, that at least half of the
property sold will be put into active
use, and the parties buying were after
homes. The balance was bought
pretty much on speculation.

ness in Athens and the numerous busi
ness bouses, there is none which can
probabably produce a more pleasing

Those who go there are charmed with
the large and attractive stock which
is displayed in a manner to best show
its merits. These gentlemen have
just received the last of their fall in
voices, some of it come from
across the water, and they have open

their advertisement than we can do.
In china they, have some excellent
goods of French, English and Amer

is everything useful or ornamental
that can be needed or desired.

A Cutting Scrape.
About three o’clock yesterday af
ternoon the report flew over the
streets that a serious fight had taken
place between Mr. Julius McDonald
and a negro named Cobb Houston,
in which the latter was cut so badly
that he would die. This was an ex
aggeration, however. The negro had
an ugly gash down the side of his face
and just along the lower jaw bone, but
no large artery was cut.
There were various stories told
about the affair and it has been al
most impossible to get the correct
version of it.
There seems to have been too much
whisky aboard, and the difficulty
started, we learn, by the negro taking
offence at some real or fancied injury
done him by Mr. McDonald. One
report says that in the quarrel the
negro was cut by Mr. McDonald and
afterward knocked him down, while
another is told to the effect that Mc-
Donald was knocked down twice be
fore he cut the negro. Mr. McDon
ald’s version of the -difficulty is as
follows ; He was passing down the
street, which waa greatly crowded,
when he took outiii* knife to cut off
the end of a cigar. As he closed the
knife he had it down by his side, and
being jostled by the crowd, the blade
accidentally stuck in Cobb Houston’s
leg. lie passed on and >the negro
turned and followed him. When he
came up he asked what in the h —l he
meant by sticking him with a knife.
McDonald tried to explain that he
didn’t intend to do it, but the negro
insisted that he did and cursed him.
McDonald tried to avoid a difficulty,
but the negro was angry, and finally
struck him. Before he could do any
thing he was struck again, and then it
was that he made the lick with the
knife. There were many negroes near
by, and seeing no white men, he became
afraid that others would attack him,
so he leaped a fence and hid himself
till the excitement should subside.—
