Washington, December 13.—As
stated in last night’s dispatches, it
is the intention of the administra
tion to try and break democratic
rule in the southern state, follow
ing np the success of the movement
tn Virginia. As a confirmation of
that statement, it may be mention-
ed as a political laet that arrange
ments are now being made to wrest
Tennessee and West Virginia from
tho democracy. The whole bent of
the stalwart element of the republi
can party and of the administra
tion will be in that direotion. The
ory has gone forth that Tennessee
must bo captured by the republi
cans, and every effort is being made
to Indueo the fulfillment of that de
mand. The stalwart wing of the
republican party is rallying to it;
all that tbo stalwarts and the ad
ministration oan do to secure the
overthrow of the democracy in
Tennessee will ho accomplished
without ecruplo. It Is oIbo a no
ticeable fact that the stalwarts are
patting Emory Speor, of Georgia,
on tho back and urging him to be
come the Mahone of Georgia. But
it Is to be placed to tbo credit of
the political sagacity of the stal
warts and the. administration that
they do not expect any Immediate
fruits from Georgia; they only
want Mr. Speer to Inaugurate the
endeavor. Their first objective
point is Tennessee, and. alter that
they propose to bounce upon Ar
kansas; and then, if successful,
they will devote themselves to oth
er states, being guided in their ac
tion by tbe consideration as to
where tbe chances, carolully weigh
ed, seems best.

The Atlanta Critics.

some sensible remarks about’ the lo

A BeM Leap For Msney.
One of the most daring cases of
robbery ever recorded in the an
nals of the State occurred last Fri
day night on the Central railroad
just above Hampton. The Expo
sition train was coming on at a rat*
tling pace when suddenly it came to
a dead halt and a man was seen to
leap off and run back up tbe track
with a valise in his hand. It seems
that a gentleman from Augusta,
whose name did not reach ns, was
on his way to Savannah with a
large quantity of valuables contain
ed in a valise. He had been to At
lanta and, thinking everything per
fectly secure, carelessly placed his
burden of wealth on the seat at his
side. By some means or other the
robber bad been informed of the
contents of the valise, and follow
ed the gentleman on the cars.
Seeking bis first opportunity when
the man was looking out the win
dow, tbe wrotch snatched up the va
lise and, walking deliberately up to
tho danger signal, pulled It and
then, as tbe train suddenly stopped,
he stepped quickly to the platform
and jumped off with bis przie.
The owner of the valise gave the
alarm at onoo and immediately a
large posse of passengers put out
after the robber. As lack would
have it, the train stopped in a long
out, and tbe robber, finding him
self unable to gain tbe woods, and
being so closely pursued, dropped
the valise and scrambled up the em
bankment, making good his escape.
The owner of tho valise showed or
told how valuable it was, and we
are informed it was worth over
$100,000. He further states that

number of times iu Atlanta, but

A Fine Exhibit.

of a pyramid of glass esses in which

The second case is two feet square,
