“Held by the Enemy,” which is to be
presented at the New opera house Thurs
day night Oct; 17, has a reputation almost

play written on the late war, wherein tbe
I conflicting interests of the North and
South have been so ingeniously interwo
t ven as not to give offense to the sympatbi-
Z'TS of either cause. Tbe play abounds
, in exciting situations and a genuine battle
I* scene with galloping horses, but these are
s happily relieved by delicate touches of the
( most exquisite comedy. The company
presenting tbe piece is spoken of every

Editors Athens Chronicle:—ln your
issue of yesterday, Oct 10;h, it seems that
your reporter interviewed a prominent
cotton man of the city of Athens, on
' “The Cotton Problem.” We take it for
' granted tbat the gentleman desired that
his name should not be given.
' I will drop this suggestion for bis bene
-3 fit, and for others who may at any time
1 in the future wish to speak out in the in
terest of the “Jute Bagging Trust,” or in
r behalf of any other “Devilish plot” con
cocted to rob the poor oppressed farmers
of this Southern land of their freedom or
bard earned money, tbat is, if they expect
. their views to be considered at all, or
> their complaints read the second time by
. the honest minded and fair dealing people
. of this section. It would be belter for the
. father ot such views to give his Christian
. name if he has one, in connection with
those views. I know that some people
profit by tbe experience, of others, and
give evidence of greater sagacity and wis
dom in withholding their names from pub-
1 lie criticism, than is evinced in tbe article
1 Under some circumstances it is evident
-1 ly more prudent for a person to get out
‘ into the bushes, and let the editor stand in
the middle of tbe big road and proclaim
1 his sentiments, but in all such cases the
desired effect can not be reasonably count
-5 ed on.
It is a little singular that this prominent
cotton man, of whom tbe editor speaks so
highly, as having held positions of honor
and (trust), did not look better to the in-
> terests of the trust business, and have bis
. name printed; for the higher and more
I honorable a position a man holds the more
j weight his views carry, whether there is
L much weight iu his arguments or not, but
. I suppose if it were to do over again this
would occur to him. Very Truly,

OLD TIME TRAVELLING.
To the Directors of the North east
Fair in Georgia :
If you desire to put on exposition an
“old time” trunk, in contrast to one of
modern Gate, I can supply one that came
with me fifty years ago, across the coun
try, from Louisville, Ky., in the year
. 1839, strapped to tbe back of tbe carriage,
j The journey was made by slow stages,
. often resting two or three days at a time.
, Tbe journey was made in a private car
. 1 iage, and before the days of Railroads,
5 and not in one of the old time tally-ho’s,
. with its bugle horn and fresh relay of
. horses at certain stations. When a resi
dent of Louisville, how I loved to hear
the bugle-horn, as the stage coach and its
. four, sometimes six, spirited horses, would
1 come dashing in o’er the well kept mae-
L adamized streets! Such a clatter 1 Even
_ now the sound of the old time'horn makes
. my pulses thrill with the recollection of
3 the pleasure -I used to feel in taking a
. short journey in one of those vehicles, and
how delighted I used to be whenever v?e
came to a station and changed horses—the
people ahead being warned to have them
in readiness, their harness on, so as to put
- them in position without delay, by the
loved tones of the “ old lang syne” stage
horn. How I would love to hear one now!
What a change in the last fifty years I

The entertainment given by the Athen
seum last evi-ning at their club house was
one es the most elegant ever attended in
Athens. The numerous guests of tbe
evening entered into the enjoyments of the
occasion with a spirit which could not fail
to make the entertainment a success, and
no society event this season has been more
throughly enjoyed than this entertain
ment. Tbe principal amusement of the
evening was dancing which was partic
ipated in by most of those present. About
eleven o’clock elegant refreshments were
served. Thereafter the German was
danced; it was led in a graceful manner by
Mr, Harry Cbarbonmer. Among those
present were Misses Katie Rutherford,

A large number assembled last evening
at the Beney-Stovall chapel to attend a
lecture given by Mr. A. L. Hull. Mr. Huh
took as his subject “The customs and
: manners of the ancient Romans.” He
discussed this subject in a unique and in
teresting manner and received the undi
vided and ea nest attention of his hearers
to the very end. It is a matter of regret
to Mr. Hull’s many admirers that he had
not consented to lecture oftener before the
literatuers of our city. He ‘possesses tbat
humorous manner of handling bis subjects
that invests all his addresses with a charm
ing interest. Iu addition to the lecture
by Mr. Hull, Miss Elsie Tyler favored the
audience with several choice selections
upon the organ. We are glad to learn
that such entertainments will be frequent
at the Institute during the coming winter.

A Successful Operation.
A few days ago an Atlanta lady came to
our city to be treated by Dr. 8. C. Bene
dict for a case of chronic pleurisy or what
is commonlyjknown as dropsy of the chest.
She had consulted various physicians in
different cities of the country in order to
obtain relief, but none did her any good.
She finally decided to submit her case to
Dr. Benedict of this city, and an operation
was performed this morning at the Com
mercial hotel. By an inject on, Dr. Bene
dict succeeded in drawing off two quarts
and a half of fluid from her chest, giving
hei tbe relief she has sought in vain for
months. This is one of the largest quantities
of fluid ever extracted from a human body
in a like case io the history of medicine-
This abnormal amount of foreign matter
had totally displaced her heart, forcing her
left lung into a very small locality and
making respiration difficult and suffoca
tion probable. The patient slept this
morning in a lying position for the
first time in mouths. Dr. Benedict has
been congratulated on all hands, on the
successful outcome of this difficult piece of

A Sunday Paper. I
Atlanta, Ga.,Oct. 11—Mr. Hal Moore, 1

Clarke’s Able Representative
Few Word* te Say.
Hon. Henry O. Tuck, the genial and
gifted “gentleman from Clarke,” arrived in
the city this morning, and has been all the
morning kept busy shaking bands with his
numerous admirers, and answering ques
tions as to the various matters which the
Legislature has under consideration. A
Chronicle man was one of those who
was able to edge in a conversation, the
substance of which we publish for those of
our readers who have not seen Mr. Tuck
since bis arrival.
“What about the Olive bill, Mr. Tuck?’*
was asked, as a starter.
“Well,” said he “you can just put it
down that if we have a full house on next
Wednesday when the bill comes up for
final consideration, the Olive bill will pass.
The agents of railroad monopoly are see
ing how much ground they have lost in
tbe fight, and are alreapy beginning to
cower before the truth as it is spoken by
the friends of the Olive Bill. Yes, you
can just be certain tbat if tbe railroad sdo
not gain over some of our voters before
next Wednesday, and if we have a full
bouse, the Olive bill will become a law,
the boasts of antagonistic organs to tbe
contrary notwithstanding. On the motion
to indefinitely postpone action, the friends
of the bill showed tbeir strength by defeats
ing this by a vote 77 to 67. It will take 88
votes to pass tbe bill, and I am sure tbat
circumstances are propitious. The Olive
bill, as at present considered, is one which
has no provision for a forfeiture of charter
on tbe part of the railroads violating the
constitution. It merely provides a fine of
uot more than $5006 a day upon any rail
road, not remedying its violatian of the
Constitution within 90 days of conviction
by the Courts.”
“What was the matter with the Univer
“Tbe trouble in that was the fact that the
farmers bad instructed a large number of
their representatives against voting for it.
It is true that some of these would have
disregarded their instruction and have sup
ported the bill, but there was Itttle hope
for its passage iu the present condition of
affairs. The unavoidable absence of about
10 of the Uuiversity’s friends such as John
Hart, of Greene and Tom Mclntyre of
Thomas, on the daj tbe vote was taken
was another of tbe many circumstances
that conspired against the passage of the
Mr. Tuck says that the house is just at
present tussling with the betterments ques
tion. An interesting rumor from Atlanta
is to the effect that tbe Atlanta Journal of
this evening will come out showing up the
methods used by lobbyists that have
thronged the halls of tbe Legislature this
session to secure votes against tbe Olive
bill, and similar legislation. It is certain
tbat such a write-up would mttkerich, rare
and racy reading.
Mr. Tuck will be detained in Athens un
til next week, attending to sotpe business
in the Superior court, He returns Tuesday
night, to be present at the vote on the
Olive bill on Wednesday.
