Thornton, .fudge H. 8. Bell aLd many
j of our citizens, but more espcoittUy to tbe
i military wbo over-awed the disafi'eoted
element. Tbe Dawson College Guards,
| reinforced by some of our young men,
| did noble service during tbo episode, os
I they were under arms for three days be-
> fore the hanging, picketing tho town dur*
| ing tbe night and exercising general
! police duty at all times during tho time.
Capt. B. C. Adams commanded the
Guards, and was unselfish in his devotion
to his duties during the time, remaining
up all night aod giving Ms individual
service to the lives and property of bis
fellow citizens. When the Albany
Guards and Albany Artillery reached us
we truly felt that “a fellow feeling makes
nil tbe world kin." and the tap of the
drum aud tbe sound of tbo fife of the
miii*ary wbo camo to onr aid infused us
with hope and courage. We feared hut
little from onr own negroes, but we had
undoubted proof that an element in some
of tbe counties around us were bent on
mischiet, aod it was only by wtse man
agement that the most dire results were
averted, and oh a people we will ever
feel a heartfelt gratitude to the military of
Albany who so promptly responded to
our call for assistance. They came to us
as gentlemen, they stayed with ua as gen
tlemen, and they left ua as gentlemen,
leaving an impress upon tbe minds of all
hsre by their gentlemanly deportment.
If the time ever comes when they may

The negro Geo. Joues died with an in-
difference that was appalling lo see in n
human oreatnre, and the naual chatter of
the culprit often seen at tbe gallowa was
not seen at this eiecution. Jones admit
ted hia guilt to bis spiritual adviser and
died hardly more than eighteen yean of
age. On his way to the gallows ha took
moro interest in the tobacco that lie was
chawing than iu the fate that awaited
him, and asked for a chew when upon
tbe soaffold. We hope that the terrible
example made by the law iu this case may
ever be a lesson to evil doeie.
Our community is plunged in grief for
the loss of three of ita moat prominent
eitixens. W. T. Campbell died on Mon
day. He waa one of nature’s nobleat gen
tlemen, generoue to an extreme, ho won
the loving esteem of ell who knew him.
Daring the war he refugetd to this sec
tion from North Georgia where he held
the position of Judge of the interior
Court. For eome years here be held tbe
position or Tax Collector and Tax Re
ceiver. His loss will be sadly felt.
J. B. Bragan died also on last Monday,
and hia loss to us na a people, is iucaleu-
lable. He left an impress for good upon
ell those be mingled with by liia unswerv
ing Christian course of conduct, and be
will not soon be forgotten. He was for
a number of years a citizen of Cuthbsrt
where he held offices of trust, afterwards
eomlng to this city and living here to the
time of hie death
Judge L. M. Lennard died on last Tues
day. A light of no ordinary brilliancy
has gone out In thin death. Judgo Len
nard wee one of the earliest settlers of
this commuoity, having lived here nearly
his life time. For alraosttwelve years
wus ordinary of Lee county, as well
s« tide county, and from the time of the
establishment of this county to the time
of bis death, he was a member of the
Board of Edncalion—nearly all that time
school commissioner. He wus e man of
[ polished manners, and shining intellect,
and in the discharge of his official duties
was honest to an extreme degree. His
loss will be severely felt.
By the death of Judge L. M. Lennard,

Oak Hill, Angnst 27.—Thinking, per
haps, that a few items from thin section
would bo ot somo interest to tho many
readers of tho Rkcohdkji. wo send you
tho following report:
Crops, as a general thing, oro pretty
good. Wo think farmers will have plenty
of corn another yoer, and if supplemented
with plenty of home-raised meat, will
make them feel independent. This see-
Uon is cortnioly on a boom, and will
become one of tbe foremost sections in
Southwest Georgia. All that is needed
at present is tho building of the A. P. A
L. R. R., which wo are confident will be
rapidly pushed to completion.
Hot. M. It. L. Binion and Rev. Mr.
Mabry have been carrying on a very in
teresting series of meetings at New Rich
land church, for tbe last two weeks, and
much good, wo hope, have been accom
plished in the Master’s cause.
The friends end patrons of Oak Hill
school will complete their new academy
this week, which is a model building in
every respect. We learn that it will be
dedicated to tbe advancement of morality,
refinement and education, by their teach
er, J. C. Laylleld, on next Friday after
noon, nt four o’clock. We wish, Mr. Edi
tor, that you could bo out. With snob
a hnndsome academy and with auch an
instructor as Prof. Layfield has proven
to be, wn can not expect less than for
Osk Hill to become famed in all that
pertains to religion, refinement, morality,
etc. We have in the old academy near
sovenly pupils and under the able super
vision of Messrs. Layfield and Nicholson
we are confident they are properly cared
Mr. Editor, sinoe bacon has gone up
and protracted meetings coming on, wa
have been compelled to use an immense
quantity of beef, in oonsequenue of which
the gnats have become almost intolerable.
Why, sir, it is like committing suicide to
go out without a bodyguard. Pineville,
Marion county, mast bo a very prolifio
spot of the world, us a gnat arrived at
Oak Hill on Katurday last, from that
direction, which on being captured weigh
ed ono hundred and eighty-five pounds.
This is said to hove been tbe largest one
over seen in Webster oonnty. This state
ment need not be doubted, for wo hnvo
plenty of tbe best citizens in the county
to back un. Fact, aud without a doubt.
FROM IIATCIIER STATION..
Hatchkk Station, August 25.—At 4
o’clock p. m., Saturday last, tbo ther
mometer marked 93°, being thp hlgbeat
point reached the present summer. Not
withstanding tho oxcussive heat, the
heal’li of our county la unusually good.
Except the territory borderiog the Chat
tahoochee river, there is scarcely a cose
of local sickness only near tbe river.
The Doctors say it la distressingly
healthy. Dr. Mason Raines baa located
in tbe Midway neighborhood, and is
stopping with Mr. T. J. Metbviu where

Tho early planting of cotton, where
properly attended to, baa made a fair
early crop, but tbe upper middle and
top crop, like the late planting aod all
old lands, is a fixed failuro. We cannot
realize more than sixty-five per cent, of
an average, as it is now too late for tbe
stalk to recuperate and mutureuny moro
bolls, or at least not enough to change
the above figures. Under tbe burning
beat which uuw prevails on the denuded
stalks It is opening very rapidly and
pickers are in good demand.
The Misses Methvin, alter using Irish
potatoes all the season from a patch
planted with one peck of seed, have
housed ten measured bushels and still
have a patch untouched. They also have
hog and hominy to supply their planta
tion. This speaks volumes to the farmers

New Yore, August 26.—Tbe
Krlanger syndicate, through J.

tlie entire capital stock of Brun

tending from Brunswick to Albany,
Ua., to B. B. Plant, ol New York.

Sept. 1. Arrangements will be
made at onco to put tbe railroad in
flrst-olass order. Tbls road Is the
shortest lino from tbo West to Sa
vannah, Go., and Jaokionvllle, Plo.
Tbe road waspurobased by Fred
Wolff, of Montgomery, Ala., for
tbe Erlanger syndicate about four
years ago. The prioo stated at the
time was $2,000,000. Tho syndl-
dalo made but slight improvements,
end did not attempt to osrry out
its original Intentions, wblob were
to extend the road so as to connect
with the Cincinnati Southern and
thus make connections with tbe

did not pay more than running ex

TnE BONDS or TBE ROAD
were largely held In Germany.
Ssligman hod sonu InUrtst In the
bonae, and last winter be made a
trip over the road for the purpose
of discovering iu condition. At
that time It was said that be ex
pressed sn intention to osrry ont
tbo original purpose of tbe.eyndl-
osto. He was accompanied on that
trip by a number of New York
capitalists, and also by President
Raoal of tbo Georgia Central end
Mr. Plant, of tbe Savannah, Flori
da and Western. It was supposed
at tbe time that if tbe road waa not
extended it would bo sold to tbe
Ueorgis Central and tbe Savannah,
Florida and Western.
BOON AFTERWARDS IT BECAME EVI
that tbe Krlanger people did not
Inund lo extend tho rood,and that
tbo purpose was to sell It to the
best advantage. In bet, to bring
about that object reports were cir
culated in tbls city that tbe Krlan
ger people intended to build on ex
tension from Wnyoross, Go., to
Jacksonville, FIs. This waa to
bring tbo Savannah, Florida and
Western to terms. A report was
also circulated that they intended
to build from Albany Into Ala
bama. Tbls was InUnded to bit
tbe Georgia Central.
WITHIN TnE LAST FEW WEEKS
it has been understood In railroad
circles that negotiations wonld be
opened for tbe purobaae of the
road. Lett week a number or
Goorgia railroad men arrived beta,
aud communication* were at once
opened with tbe agenU of the Er-
Isngcr people. It is understood
that the safe was a compromize.
It is unknown here whether tbe
Krlanger people made tbe first ad
vances or whether Mr. Plant was
an snzlous purchaser. It b be
lieved, however, that Mr. Plant has
made a good bargain. Men well up '
in railroad matters here say that be
nan utilize tbe road to great advan-
uge and can make It much mors
than pay a good tntorest on tbe
purchase price. Tbls purchase will
make bb railroad system Include
about SOO miles of rood In 8ontb
