An Interview With Maj. Degnon,
P Chief Engineer-Notes by the
A* yet our leaders do not fully
comprehend the extent of the work
going on at South Brunswick, or
rather on the line of road. Some, too,
have looked on this South Brunswick
scheme as deleterious to Brunswick
—calculated to pull down our fair
The Advertised takes a different
view of the case entirely, and looks
with favor on the enterprise—just as
we do St. Simons’ mills, hotel, etc.,
Crlspen Island and its gigantic enter
prise, Jekyl Itlamfaml its club house,
Pcllicanville and its compress. We
. consider them all adjuncts to our city.
Every dollar spent at these places but
tends to build up Brunswick. Jersey
City has never hurt New York, and
neither will South Brunswick hurt
Brunswick. The banks are here, and
• tho business will be done here, or
rather through here. When these
places get big enough to need these
things, Brunswick proper will have so
grown that she will need still more
So much, then, for our feelings to
wards South Brunswick os an enemy
to us. She is not, and never will be.
Heating Major Degnon, Chief En
gineer of the new railroad, this morn
ing, wo quietly took him aside and
tojd him to consider himself under
arrest until we could apply our news
augur. He submitted patiently to
“Now, Major, tell us first and fore
most, who are tho real men who have
worked up this railroad enterprise,
and tell Us whother they mean busi-
r - ness.",
M This naturally amused the Major,
"*fothiuk wo did hot know what sort
of men were the moving spirits. Said
“The three men who have fathered
this enterprise, and to whom the
;rcatest praise is due, are President
A L Holly, Treasurer John Sloanc
itary E. P. Kennard. These

■»' “Wo began at Waynesvillc, where
our road touches the B. & W. By to
morrow night we will have 5 miles of
track laid, and liy October 1st we
will bo across College creek trestle.”
“When will you give, us our first

“October 15th, we will ride you
from South Brunswick to Waynes-
- villa—10 miles, ,for as soon as we
pass College creak wo shall then lay

with anything like good weather.”
Well, now Major when -you have
‘finished the line from Waynesville to
:South Brunswick, what then?”
“Going right on for Cordble—there
-will be no ‘cessation of hostilities’ at
all—tho work will go right, forward
as fast as possible and ere long we
hope to have the opportunity of tak
log you ’over our tsntlre line from
, South Brunswick to Cordelc, where
we connect with other -roads. Yes,
Mr. Editor, you can safely tell your
people that South Brunswick will
soon have a railroad to Cordele sec
ond to none in the land, and that the
projectors of the scheme are'not en
emies to Brunswiok as some of your
people may think, but on the contra
ry will only tend to' build up your
magnificent harbor by increasing its
volume of business. This harbor is
bound to do a magnificat business
with three railroads pouring its
trcasurcsinto it and steamship lines
. to carry on its commerce, our harbor
will dp a grand business* and Bruns
wick and South Brunswick will enjoy
the rich rewards. Let us all pull to
gether, for what helps one can’t keep
from helping tho other, for it all
means the harbor of Branawick.
For years past there has been a
continual squabble about opening
certain streets in New Town. From
the gas house eastward there is a belt
of property through there known as
tho “academy range” that was cut up
originally into live acre blocks, if we
mistake not. They used to be plant
ed years ago, but of into houses have
sprung up here and there on them
until now there arc quite a number
of residences there, and of late there
has been considerable complaint be
cause parties hwning these lots have
put fences around them, thus cut
ting off exit from tho city. As we
understand it there aro only two
streets opened up out there in that
part of town.
This matter has grown to lie a nu
isance and something should lie done
about it. Either these people have
no right to close those streets or else
they do have. If they have not, then
the powers that be should‘knock
down those fences and punish the
offenders. But if they have, then
tile city's duty is also clear.- Com
promise the matter witli the lot
owners on the best terms possible or
else condemn the ground and arbi
trnt*the cost. This matter should
no longer remain in doubt. If the
matter has to go to court let it go
there und be settled forthwith, for
wo can’t afford as a town to have any
more closed blocks than possible. Wo
want everything clear, both titles to
lots and to streets.
A ease of this kind came up a year
or two ago with Dr. Gulo, which wns
amicably settled, and we tliiuk these
could lie. or one thing, we arc cer
tain—dirt will never be uny cheaper
in that end of town than it is to-day,

tonio was in, and just three days late,
not having left New York until Sun
day. The grocery and Iruit merchants
were on hand with their drays get

needed freights, and the railroad men
were as busy as beavers transferring
interior freights, so as to give dis
patch to same, and Ageat Fuller und
his assistants were in a strain to keep
track of all these freights, so that
none would be lost, and each man get

Mr. McClure Captures a Burglar
in His Room and Makes Him
Give Back 'His Money..
Mr. Win. McClure had quite an
experience this morning about 4:30
o’clock. He was quietly sleeping in
a front room at Mrs. Oakley’s board
ing house at that hour, when he
awoke and sa« standing in his room
a white man, about 5 feet 11 inches
high, dark eyes and black mustache,
and wearing a brmvn hat, light pants
and blue cunt.
Mr. McClure’s first thought was
tliut a burglar wns in his room, and
forthwith took his pistol from under
his pillow, and springing to his feet
covered the fellow with tho weapon
and demanded to know his business
“Can you tell me whose boarding
house this is ?” nsked the chap.
But Billy wns not to be thrown off
so easily, and demanded what he was
doing with his pants, for he hud no
ticed by the bright moonlight that
his clothes had been disturbed.
“Here’s your money. Mister,” said
the chap, handing over $0.45 which
he had just taken from the pants,
“ but don't shoot me for tbq Lord’s
The more Billy threatened to shoot
him, the harder the burglar begged,
winding up his last appeal with the
remark that he “wasn’t a bad man,
Friend McClure having read what
the preacher said lie would do if lie
found a burglar in bis room, told bis
early visitor to go and sin no more,
und allowed him to quietly retire.
‘•Why didn’t you take biin to jail?”
Ob,” said he, “I bad no one to call
a policeman for me, and I was in ( my
night clothes ; amp you s$e ho had giv
en mo back all ho took from me, and
I told him to go.”
It is a good thing for that burglar
that he didn’t fall into the bands of
some other parties we know of; ho
certainly would have fared different-
Mr. MeClurc thinks the chap cither
a brick-layer or a painter, judging
from the peculiar look of his clothes.
He thinks that the police could pick
him up very eusily from the descrip
tion—says “ his face was a little
dished’ and his nose very red.”

educational institution. This has
been shown by the hesrtv endorse
ment of t&e bill given by the press

of education that answered before the

no place .for them to get such train

State and County Fairs.
Tho Georgi a farmers and editors
who attended llio Ohio State fair dur
ing their western trip, will soon have
an-opportunity to attend the Georgia
State fair at Macon, and to compare
the exhibits of the two ; and it limy
be assumed tliut Georgia will not sof
ter by the comparison, for in point of
resources, advanced agriculture and
new industries she occupies a iiigh
position among the States.
These fairs, however, rarely givo a
correct idea of the resources and pro
gross of a State, for tho reason that
the exhibits -o-e nut as good as they
could ho made. Comparatively few
people make exhibits, und niuny of
them do so upon the solicitation of
representatives of tiie lair assoeia
lions, and do not give that amount
of attention to them tliut they should.
Still, so far as Georgia is concerned,
these fairs have shown a highly cred
itable condition of alfuirs, and have
been the means of inducing people to
move to the State.
