13 .. o.tuflpd with the re- the last Legislature giving 250 convicts to
the Marietta and fcorth Georgiu railroad,
Penitentiary companies Nos. 1 and 2 have
filed an application with' tlie Governor
asking that the convicts now being worked
by that road be turned over to the convict
lessees. The Governor referred the appli
cation to the Attorney-General for
his opinion. Owing to the press of other
matters, Attorney-General Anderson only
reached this question a few days ago and
decided not to render an cpinion until he
had heard from both parties at interest.
To-day both parties were before the
Governor and the Ateorney-General. Gov
ernor Smith and Jndge Hopkins repre
sented the penitentiary companies and
Hoke Smith and Colonel II. F. Abbott ap
peared for the Marietta and North Georgia
railroad. * Mr. Smith asked that the hear

notice of this application until last Thurs

MONDAY NICHT'S COLLISION.
Additional Particulars of the Fearful
When tlie people picked up the Tele
graph and Messenoeh yesterday morning
and redd the report of the collision at Ju
liette, there was a gloom cast over the city.
It was the first serious accident on the new
road between Macon and Atlanta, and
much sympathy was expressed for the un
The body of engineer Howdcr was placed
in a fine metallic case and forwarded to
Atlanta yesterday morning, on its way to
Indianapolis, of which place he was a na
tive. The remains of fireman Pruitt were
also placed in a neat coffin and sent to his
family In Atlanta.
Tlie collision occurred as we stated yes
terday. When Capt. Gillespie and en
gineer Ilowder left Macon Monday after
noon, they were about an hour behind
time. The register in the office shows
that both conductor and engineer of train
52 registered at 5:35. Previous to this, at
:28, they both signed the following order
from the train dispatcher, Samuel Hunt,
“Train 53 will run to Juliette regardless
of train 52.
(Signed) “& H.
It seems that Conductor Gillespie read
this order hurriedly and uncerstood it to
read, as afterwards learned, that 52 should
run to Juliette regardless of 53. This was
THE FATAL MISTAKE.
Having then the idea that his train
should run to Juliette regardless of the
down train, or 53, Capt. Gillespie went on*
tvard with his train. Engineer Howder
could not see the coming train. Just
where the coll Won took place is a sharp
curve—in fact, the track winds about in a
series of curves at that point, and he had
only time to see the approaching locomo
tive within a few feet of him. The lamp in
A Five Minutes* Chat with Superintendent
Captain J. K. Mallory, superintendent
of the Macon and Brunswick division of
tlie EastTcnnessce, Virginia and Georgia
railroad, lias just returned from a visit to
headquarters at Knoxville. Of the report
ed wholesale cutting down of force all
along the line, our reporter asked:
“What truth is there in the report that
three hundred men have been taken off
••Well, we have reduced our force, as we
do every year when the business season
close*, but I do not know that the reduc
tion will reach that number.”
“What class of employes are cut down?”
“Section gangs, principally. Our run
ning force remains the same. We have a
system in force that is thorongh and com
plete. For instance, tlie cost of running
on my division requires a certain
amount, and having carefully fig
ured on that amount, it is a
maximum. We pay our engineers for
every mile they run, every conductor and
train hand for every trip he makes, and
every laborer for every day he works. We
may have five hundred men to-day and
two hundred to-morrow; but the average
is the same.”

A Cyclone Suftarar.

the headlight of S3's engine would not burn
for some reason, and hence there was no
light. Engineer Van Winkle, ol that en
gine, saw (lie rays of 52's headlight upon
the iron rails ahead of him, ana thought
that the light came from a Headlight.
Ho applied the airbrakes, reversed his
engine, gavo her all possible steam,
blow Ills whistle and with his fire
man jumped into the darkness. When
they jumped the engine ran the length of a
car and the collision occurred.
The two engines went together with a
terrible crash. Both reared their heads
and then turned toward the embankment,
against which they leaned, tlulr machinery
interlocked. Tho tenders were turned
around across the track, and four freight
cars, loaded with oranges
upon tlie top of tlie northbound tender.
The end of the baggage, mail and express
car of the southbound train was broken in
by contact with the tender next to it. Ex
press Messenger Clower was thrown vio
lently to tlie floor, and but for his iron
safe, behind which he fell, and which pre
vented the timbers from crashing him,
would very probably have been killed.
IBs shoulder was dislocated, from which
injury he suffered greatly. Route Agent
Gossett, who was in tbo mall compart
ment of the car, was first thrown upon his
distributing table, then upon hla mail-bag
rack, and then to the floor. He was un

The passenger and baggage coaches of

the passengers experienced only a slight

the road Is so near an assured fact,
that there are ninety-nine chances tor
