HON. II. CL TURNER.
The IIkrai.p is plowed to note the
high esteem in which the gentleman
whcne name appears at the head of thin
paragraph u held by the prem through
out the country. As second member on
the most important committee of the
House, Mr. Turner's j»osition as one of
the foremost «nen of the times has been
duly established, and the wisdom of his
selection for this important position has
been endorsed by his party colleagues
ami political opponent*.
We are proud that our district in so

Congressmen arc in the front in all im

The Chilian Trouble.
Mr. Turner, of Georgia mays: “In
the present state of the situation I see
no decent pretext of war. The trouble
grew out of a mere sailor’s brawl, such
as is likely to occur on any similar occa
sion. Italy has stronger grievances
against ns for the New Orleans lynching
than we hare against Chili for the Bal
timore affair. The difficulty should be
settled by diplomacy and not by force of

Senator Fordon: “I am not prepared
to express a positive opinion, but it
would be a very expensive and inglo

THE TRIBfNE-OF-ROME SCARED.
There is a worse danger, far worse,
threatening Rome than a freshet can
possible by. There is an all-water route
between Rome and Chili and what de
fense has the former against the latter,
e of war? Just think how easy it
will 1»e for a Chilian man o’ war to
line right up to Koine and shell the

i.liceman doing guard duty down at the

GLEANING TIIE NEWS.
We have in every issue of The IIke-
ald a modest beading, “News of the
Week,” which probably conveys to out
readers some considerable information
of events happening all over the world,
but little idea of the labor entailed on
the editor in selecting and condensing
three short paragraphs from the lengthy
daily dispatches of the associated press,
anti other sources.
The Herald receives twenty-two
dailies regularly and forty-three- weekly
exchanges, and it is seldom that any one
of these two hundred and over weekly
arrivals is turned off* the editor’s desk

the local page of our town paper a live,

of the life of the place.
We frankly acknowledge we cannot
do this without your help, and we ask it
in the interest of Waycraaa, which can

reticent, for the mills of the gods grind
slowly but desperately fine,* and in this
case they have a fine Miller. Among the
recent arrivals were Mr. J. F. Floyd and
the Misses Philips, daughters of Hon. S.
D. Philips, of Willacoochee. The for

W. H. Mangham and family, who ar
rived the week before are quite an ad

swelled the roll of our high school to the
tune of eight, but has ordered the
chinery for a large saw mill, which will
soon be«ending its curling smoke to the
heavens and its happy hum to t
of prospective builders.
Our railroad facilities are better than

J. U. Ilillhousc, dissipates the slightest
appearance of discontent by being con

Speaking of railroads reminds us that
there are as great evils on other lines
which might be remedied by legal pro
vision. Why is it not as constitutional
a restrain manufacturers, jobbers and
Middlemen from charging more than a

mileage? It is claim'd that skill is the
only commodity with which the market
is not at some time or other overstocked,
and it is further argued that the law of
supply and demand is the regulator of
prices, and yet in the midst of plenty
prices are high. But I must close on
