Thk death of Jumbo does not seem to have in
terfered with the circus business in South Carolina.
A dispatch says: "We went to the circus at Ashe-
vrille this morning, and it was good. The crowd was
most interesting. Rome citizens came on bull
back and others vchicnlated in sleds drawn by
spiked steer teams. Five counties were drained,
and it was a touching spectacle to see women
with children at the breast, after asking their hus
bands for a chaw,expectorate tobacco juice with un
paralleled accuracy of aim."
Wx have always said that "Cump” Khertnan had
enjoyed more rank and pay for leas fighting than
any dead or living soldier. His home paper takes a
similar view of the situation. The Globe-Democrat
says: "Gen. Sherman says, in au interview in the
Republican, that he ‘would rather have written Mr.
Lincoln's first inaugural than to have won a victo
ry.’ Whi.'h leads us to inquire when and upon
what oecsiou did Geu. Sherman experience the sen-
nation incident to the winning of a victory! It
must have been before the battle of Hhlloh or
since the surrender of the Confederate army.
Tux xon of his pa is a promising candidate for the
Virginia penitentiary, as may bo reen by this ex
tract from a Petersburg paper: "Butler Mabonc, son
of Senator Mahone, John Williamson and Charles
Belcher overpowered officer Edwards, of the police
force, last night and took his pistol and club from
him. Mahone shot at Edwards with his (Edwards's)
own pistol, but did no harm. The parties were ,nul>-
Hequeutly arrested, and this morning were brought
before the mayor, lmt at the request of Mahone the
trial of the case was postponed until Saturday. Each
of them was admitted to bail in the sum of $1,000."
A Washington dispatch to the Bun says: "On the
President's return from the Adirondack mountains
he found awaiting him at the White House the fol
lowing letter from Mrs. Helen Hunt Jacksou, the
well Known authoress ‘H. H.,’ an advocate of Indian
rights, which was written by her four clays before
ber death. August 12,1886: *To Gkoykr Clevkland,
Pukhihknt or tux United Status—Dean Siu: From
my death-bed I send you message of heartfelt
thanks for what you have already done for the In
dians. I ask you to read my ‘Century of Dishonor.’
I am dying happier for the belief I have that it is
your hand that is destined to rftrike the first steady
blow toward lifting this burden of infamy from our
country, and righting the wrongs of the Indian race.
With miqiect aud gratitude, Hxlkn Jackson.

Mr. Holland, of Texas, who shot a New York
Mbarp about some counterfeit money, stands well
with his church and people at home, as these reso
lutions nbow: ‘‘Whereas, as Mr. James T. Holland,
of Abeline, Texas, formerly a resident and citizeu of
this town (Jewett) and county (Leon) is now con
fined in the Tombs of New York city on a charge of
murder; aud, whereas, numerous reports and state
ments have been widely circulated in some paper*
that Mr. Holland is a feckless, desperate and law
less chancier, capable of committing any kind of
< crime; therefore be it resolved, that we, the Mis-
. ftionary Baptist church of Jewett, while we do not
propose to pnsa npob the guilt aud innocence of
Mr. Holland in the matter of which he stands
charged iu the courts of New York, yet we willingly
and cheerfully state that having known Mr. J. T.
Holland long and intimately, his every relation of
life sustained in our midst was that of a worthy,
law abiding citizen and an honomble man; aud,
judging him as we judge all men that, from bis for
mer standing and relation he bore among us, we
would unhesitatingly state that he is incapable of
wanton, reckless violation of law aud order. Done
by order of church in conference, Heptember 25th,
Tux love of a boy for his dog surpasses the affec
tion supposed to have existed between Mary and
the lamb. This from the Savannah Times will
touch the heart of all: "A small dog of the skyc
terrier species bit a son of a resident of Hunting
don street Monday. It was determined to kill the
dog, and two members of the family were detailed
to execute the canine. The commission was not a
pleasant one, as affection and doty alternated with
them. They loved the dog, but they thought it was
their duty to kill him. They cotdd not shoot him,
and the family could not bear to see him killed on
the premises, so sll hide the animal an affectionate
good-bye, and bis executioners left the house with
team and took the dog with them. They took him
to a pond by the baseball park and sat down on the
damp ground and cried. One of the boys would
affectionately hug the dog while the other would
demonstratively attest his grief. Finally they cum-
moned up coumgs, tied a rope about his neck, and
freighted with a large stone, they launched the
dog in thn water. They then ran away crying and
without looking back. When they reached home
and reported all cried, and the entire family be
wailed the necessity that caused them to sacrifice
their canine pet
Ohio will be heard from in a few days. A special
to the Washington Star gives this account of the
campaign: "The campaign has been quietly con
ducted, the still hunt tactics haring been very close
ly observed by both parties up to about a week ago,
when Senator Sherman thrust out more rigorotuljr
than heretofore, and commenced forcing the fight
ing. It is plainly manifest that the plan of cam
paign adopted by the Democrats, and on which
they hoped to continue the fight namely, that of
annoying the Republicans on the temperance
question, is from this time on to be seriously in
terrupted by the sudden springing of the tariff
quesiou by Senator Sherman, who will be
followed by such speakers as Major Me-
Kinlsy, General Grosvenor, Honorable A.
L- Morrison, of Chicago, and Geueral
Heaver, of Pennsylvania. Hits move is like pull-
iug out a new deck of cards on the Democratic man
agers, as they am not prepared for this new turn in
the campaign, whereas the Republicans have their
tariff literature already out. The refusal of Governor
Hoadly to go on the track with Foraker without Dr.
Leonard is criticised in a cautious manner by many
of bis party friends, who claim that it places Hoadly
on the defensive. Both parties are thoroughly or
ganised, although the Republicans arc probably
the more thoroughly disciplined of the two, but the
Democrats seem to have the biggest "bar'l." While
it la quite too early to make a prediction, it ia evi
dent that if the election were to be held to-morrow
Hoadly would be defeated. Tbs Legislative ticket,
however, would be very close. Hon. AUsn O. Thur
man has consented to make three speeches—one at
Toledo, one at Fremont and out at Loudon villa.
The Telegraph’s New Km.
To-day thin journal enters upon a new
era. Two years of unparalleled prosperity,
the growth of Macon, the increase of our
territory and the demands of our patrons
render necessary changes, l>oth in the ar
rangement and publication of the paper.
The Trleobaph to-dny appears in new
dress and enlarged. Its type is new, col
umns wiiler and longer. We are able now
to meet the extraordinary pressure upon
both the news and advertising columns.
A prominent feature of the new' era
is a Monthly morning paper, which
will be fnrnished to subscribers with
out additional cost, and will contain the
news of the hour from all parts of the
world. This Monday paper will be in
creased in size as business demands.
One change in our journal is not shown
by this issue. In two or three days our
folding machine, which lias been delayed
upon the road, will he attached to our press,
and subscribers will receive their papers
neatly cut, folded, pasted, and brimming
full of the latest news. Another change re
lates chiefly to the weekly edition, which
pat sea up from eight to twelve pages.
Every subscriber wiii be benefited by the
We desire to call especial attention to our
Atlanta department. This was established
to meet the requirements of both subscri
bers and advertisers throughout the coun
try and in Atlanta. We began with an oc
casional correspondent. To-day we find it
necesssry to maintain four salaried meti in
the capital city: Mr. H. C. Peeples,
Supreme Court reporter, Mr. C.
A. Niles and Mr. Smith Clayton,
special reporters, and Mr. C. T. Slider, bus
iness agent. Of the work of these men
nothing need he said. It is seen daily in
these columns aud we believe appreciated
in every section of the State. Nothing so
strikingly illustrates the growth of the Tel
egraph us it« Atlanta department, which is
strictly the result of a firm demand.
Hut the grow tli of the paper has been
even remarkable in all its depart
ments. Four years ago, when it pass
ed into the hands of its
present owners, it was without material suf
ficient to print a respectable looking issue.
It had little or no new’s service within the
State, was in debt and the subscription list
was small. To-day its facilities for gather
ing news are unsurpassed, its material is
all new and first-class, its subscription list
extensive and it owes not a dollar. There
is not a share of its stock that cun he pur
chased in the market.
While we do attribute this remarkable
success in a measure to the industry and
energy brought to hoar in conducting it, we
recognize the fact that the Telegraph really
llnstrntes the growth of Macon and its trib
utary sections. The paper reaches every
town in Georgia that has a daily mail, upon
the day of its publication. It goes out of
Atlanta on the early morning trains into all
North Georgia, and crosses tho borders of
surrounding States in every direction. It
has become of especial service to the upper
section of the State by reason of its excellent
Capital news, the Legislative reports and
decisions of the Supreme Court.
But one element in the marked success
of the paper is its cleanliness. It is essen
tially the family breakfast table puper of
Georgiu, patronized by the best people of
all classes, which is after all the source of
potent public opinion, and the purchasing
power of society. These are the people we
seek to serve. These are the peoplo we
have found supporting us. For these rea
sons the paper has been strong both ns
voicing the announcements of advertisers
and bringing home for digestion the best
thought that can be gathered upon public
There will be no variance, no change, no
faltering iu the course of the Telegraph.
It will he found nlways supporting Demo
cratic principles, and laboring for the good
of the party. As its life is not hounded by
a brief yesterday, its ideas are not limited
to to-day. It looks to the future as well ns
the present. Its judgment lias been oftener
right than wrong. Strong in the
purity of its principles, un
swayed by rings,’corporations or politicians,
fearing no power, devoted to the interests
of Macon, of Middle Georgia and of Geor
gia in all its broad extent, the friend of lib
eral thinkers, the friend of progressive fac
tors, the friend of justice, the advocate of
honest methods and the enemy of ringstem,
the Telegraph enters upon the new era.
It asks only such support os it deserves.
The Fending Railroad Hill.
Public sentiment in this State will center
in the House of Kepresentatives during the
delsitc upon this important measure.
While it was being discussed in the Senate
it was made plain that its opponents could
not justify their positions, upon the grounds
of either j ustice or public policy. The puer
ile arguments offered against its passage
merited, as they received the contempt
of all intelligent, fair-minded men, and be
yond the borders of the State created an un
favorable impression touching the wisdom
and justice of our law-makers.
While these men were seeking to prevent
the passage of a law, which nt best is n poor
measure of relief to our railroads,
and at last subjects to extreme hazard the
large and legitimate investments in this es
sential property, the projectors of other and
needed lines were appealing to outside cap
ital for their construction. It is needless
to state that these appeals are made in vain
so long os the present law is enforced. Men
of capital ore almost universally inen of in
telligence. They realize that what they
hold and control is necessary to the devel
opment of every section of this country,
and especially so of the Bouth. While the
members of the Georgia Legislature may
suppose that they can regulate the invest
ment of money in this State, every man
who, from the necessities of private oi pub
lic business, has had occasion to
negotiate loons, lias learned that in
securing favorable result 4 it is
necessary to present a clean record for
honesty, with positive assurance of certain j
tracted to Atlanta, and we learn that within
a day or two an Atlanta hoy has been caught
in the act of throwing ajrotten tomato at a
If the Chinaman was merely washing
clothes, this act was thoughtless perhaps,
but still unpardonable. But there may
have been just cause for the violence of the
young Atlantese. It will he recall*, d that
s >me months since, a young Atlanta hoy
was missed from his home on a Sunday.
When found the “special correspondent”
telegraphed that the hoy had been enticed
into an opium joint, in Atlanta, kept by
Chinese and kept there for some time.
This rotten tomato business may he the
sequel to that escapade. The Atlanta boy
may have been seeking revenge, but
he ought to have had a rotten tomato
for the “special cofrespondent.”
“Camp** ami “Mac."
Every one knows “Cump” Sherman.
Some of the people of to-day do not know
that Mr. McCullagh, at present editor of
the St. Louis Glohe-Deiuocrat, was a re
nowned correspondent who wrote over the
signature of “Mac.”
Since the appearance of the Halstead let
ter “Cump” lias been saying some linpleas-

Because Sherman tells lies, talks about
things of which he is ignorant, and is a
“garrulous old fool” should not give him an
immunity from criticism or proper punish
ment. Such things are “unbecoming an
officer and a gentleman,” and Secretary
Endicott should exert his authority to abate
this very offensive nuisance. “Cump” in

The Evangelists of the North do not run along as
* moodily as Sam Jones and other*. The New York
Tribune gives this account of a hot baptising down
on Staten Inland: “The Rev. Mr. Bott delivered a
nermon with his usual eloquence and even hin most
bitter enemy did not fsil to find it interesting.
But the trouble began when the baptismal service
was announced. Joseph Romer wan dewtrons of
Wing immented. Some of the congregation said
that he should not be baptised; other* declared that
if he was. Brother Bott should have nothing to do
with it. But Brother Bott was determined to make
preparations to perform the ceremony. But words
aud angry gestures followed and at one time it
looked as if blow* would follow, liig boys
and littlo boys in the back part of the
church made cat calls. A policeman was
hastily summoned, and his premmes prevented
serious trouble. When Sexton Harvey went out to

Harvy was found in the well. Ho could n. * Uri: .hath

to help him out The ladder bit him a terrible blow
on the head. No one could tell whether or not the
enemy did It. After the sexton had been fished up
the tank would not fill with water. It was discover
ed that there was a light under the baptistry; some
one peered under there and saw two persona, one on
his bands and knees holding a lamp, and another on
his back working an auger with which he was boring
holes In the bottom of the tank, through
which the wafer soon poured. Then

whole congregation rushed out. The timing outside
set up a shout, ‘Who stole the water?’ 'Who bored
the holes?* While the melee was greatest Pastor
Bott started singing. There is a fountain filled with
blood.’ Aud then the service was resumed. After
it was over he sarcastically remarked that *if Jesus
Christ were to come to this pulpit. 1 believe that
some of this people would crucify and kill him. 1
Last night a meeting called by Deacon Turner was
held with closed doors. None of the pestoFe
friends were present The deacons and the anti

night at Deacon Turner’s house."
upon capital must be certain before it can
It is not sufficient to secure the money
that we must have, in order to our develop
ment,to indulge in flattering promises, puli-'
lished or spoken, of safety to principal and
certainty as to returns upon it. In the face
of such a law as now encumbers and par
alyzes all effort at railroad building iu Geor
gia, and the spirit of a people that through
its continuance are threatening the destruc
tion of all property rights, men who have
money and are anxious to lend it, refuse the
assistance that is vital to us, and which they
would gladly extend if they could do so in
It is know n that recently there was of
fered for sale a small issue of six per cent,
bonds, to secure the payment of which
property costing in cash three times the
amount of issne, and which is steadily pro
ductive, was pledged to their redemption.
The party offering them was told
by a banker in New York that the rate oi
interest was tempting, but that New York
banks w’ero afraid of Southern securities
generally, and especially of those from
Georgia. Why this mistrust of the South?
Why should capital be more afraid of in
vestment in Georgia than other Southern
States? We are not left to conjec
ture so faj as Georgia is concerned, as
the reason was assigned that capital was
afraid of any State that had shown itself
capuble of such a law as ♦he one under
which our Bail road Commission, with su
preme power, exists.
The energies of the inen upon whom this
State depends for development and advance
ment are paralyzed by the feeling of suspi
cion and mistrust of our people entertained
by capitalists. They are dumb in the pres
ence of those who know the facts, and
arraign w ithout mercy every citizen respon
sible for them.
What has Georgia to expect from tho men
who are opposing the passage of a bill
which, as we have said, is at best
a poor measure of relief to
onr railroads. Look at them.
Who are they? Have they built any rail
roads in the past ? Will they build any in
the future? If the Legislature submits"the
policy of the State touching one of its
greatest interests to them, will the people
also look to them for future development,
and are they willing to wait for that devel
opment until it comes through them ?
They proceed upon the idea that utter ig
norance of the wants and necessities of the
State, and of the only methods through
which they can be promoted, are first con
ditions iu the qualification of those who are
to shape public policy in reference to
these questions. They believe that capital
can and will he tempted to investment here
under promises that have no guarantee in
good judgment or good faith.
Wo have reached the point when this de
lusion should V»e dispelled. There are men
in Georgia whom capitalists are willing to
trust, but they are afraid of investments,
the safety of which depends upon the ca
price of a people capable of our present
railroad law*, and who, after the experience
of vears demonstrating its injustice and
bad policy, refuse to change it.
If this measure fails, every intelligent and
patriotic citizen of the State may well fear
the effect upon our future.
The Power of the Convict King.
Information ns to the escapes from the
penitentiary and executive action there
upon was literally corkscrewed out of the
executive, and the process was prolonged
And then it is far from satisfactory.
Nobody knows what was done about the
matter during Colquitt’s term, but since the
death of Mr. Stephens there have been
seventy-two escapes. The lessees made ex
cuse for sixty-seven, and the Governor
allowed forty of these to he good and suf
ficient. He claims that the Attorney-Gen
eral assisted him in this work. The im
pression prevails that it is the duty of the
Attorney-General to furnish the Governor
with opinions upon constitutional and stnt
utory law. The duty of looking after es
caped convicts should not lie put upon the
law officer. The case, as made by the
Governor, ought to demand further legisla
tion. A system is very faulty which per
mits seventy-two escapes in a short
period. With proper and sufficient
guards there should be no escapes. Out of
the twenty-seven escapes held to bo sub
ject to the penalty of two hundred dollars,
nine are yet unsettled. The convict lessees
of Penitentiary No. 2 are going to test the
law or to tight for time, and time is money.
The curious point about this business is
that the convict ring has been sufficiently
powerful to keep this matter from the pub
lic, and it appears that nothing was done an
til the authorities were waked up by a
resolution of inquiry and the prodilings of
the press. This will not and should not
help to commend the system to popular fa
vor. The sagacity of Joo Brown sticks out
in this business. He put up his two hnn-
Wise man. He knew that a day of reckon
ing would come along, and he wanted the
block hole to stand square on the record.
Considering the frequency of escapes,
and the facility for avoiding the
penalty thereto^ it would seem thut
the penalty should be increased. At the
present figure, a man con get out of the
penitentiary for two hundred dollars.
It might l>e a money-making business, to
turn out the aged, weak and infirm, who
have to be fed and clothed ami who cannot
perform remunerative labor.
The time of the session is growing short,
but not t4>o short, we trust, for a searching
look into this business.

This cry raised on the Pacific slope, where

themselves by cutting off the pig-tails of

a subject of serious correspondence between

that the thrift and industry shown
by the Chinese have brought
down these troubles upon them,
rather than the vicious practices with which
they are charged. The Chinamen laboring
as miners were entitled to do the work and
receive the pay for which they had been
employed, and the cruelties inflicted upon
