Duiinin the neoti aiocs the West
Point Terminal Company has prob
ably bean used by Mr. Brio and his
following as a kind of duttmy or
stool pigi-on, in order to cause the
Norf lk and Western people to in
crease their olds for a tontrollinn
amonnt ' f Eitt Tennessee, Virginii

'lhe press dispa ches of lact work
gave an ncnount of a new rcheme
which was :o build a railroad throngh

and it is Btated that a corpi of en

Tt. will be seen from thtse facts tlat
the Norf jllr and Western people aie
faying to Mr. ISrUo atid his followeis:
"Wo have oflered you all that the
controlling amount of Eist Tenrnissee
stcick ia worth. If you persist in
l.oliiiag this stock and in making an
interchange of tratllc with us at 13 is
'ol. nncertaiu both ns to time od
omount, we will be forced tJ establith
a connection at Bristol for ourselves
by the building of a road to Memphis
v.a Nash vile." Of course fh's would
ba almobt s d'3th blow to the Ea t
Tennessee, Virginia and GeorgU rail
road with a bonded debt of 24,000,
000 and a monthly interest account of
a'ooii t $ 1 00,000 and more. In that event
the credit rs of the E tat Tennessee
road would be obliged to scale down
the indebtedness and the road would
bs bottled up west of tbe Blue Ii An.
The immense volume ot through tr.-illo
fl iwing through Briat il wculd almost
entirely go over the new nad and not
over the East Tennessee, Viiginia and
We a-e told that the construction of
this Lew road will involve only a
ema 1 amount of heavy work. It will
ez'end from Bristol nearly straight
west until it ttrikes a brarch of the
Gliocii river at Blountvillo, which
stream it will follow to Kingsport.
From thra to 8needvillo tlie cm
structioTi will be heavy, but from toe,
iHtterpoint it will bs very easy follow
ing Udnch river to Clinton. From
this rlaca it will pass thruiigh a fuc-re'i-i
n t f mounlaiu gups and alon
various small streams uutil it reaches
FHOM WHICH POINT TO HAMI'IIIS
there is no question but w iat the
construction will be easy.
It is prettv evident that it re ts
npon Mr Brice to sty whetht r this
new ro d will or will no'.be t-uilt.
This line would be a (treat benefit
to Tdtmecsee, and open up immense
fislds of iron ore and coal snd insure
tbe construction of a nnmbar of blast
furnaces, and give a more ready
market to nr cultural products in tbe
country traversed by it.
One trouble with the Etst.Tennes
Fee road is that it is full of curves, low
fi la and high cats and grades. The
proposed road wo ild bat constructed
under modern engineering-, sod iraiTic
could be more easily handled over it.

Miss Coghlan made a freeh revela
tion of r.er powers as an actress, in
portraying the chaiacUr of ouo of
the mo it famous of her prototypes,
wonivn who is one of the Iradi-
uonB ol tne x-xiitusit ttage, wnoee
origin is lost in obicuri.y, and
whose exit irom )i was uurnea
by a sudden and uniooneci lor stroke
of paralysis. She was a star in htr
day, a star when it was the fashion to
affect the stage, which Collery Ciber
and Q oin had helped to btr ngthen
iu tbe a Hen lion of a willing public.
Poor "IVg" she was in the act of re
peating, in her peit and provoking
way, the luiee, l would airs
as many oi you sa nnu
beards," when tbe Btroke cut her
words short, and slm was borne
from tbe sUg in pitiahlo help'esnees.
Uoydenish and weak,where her heart
was concerned, she was full of sympa
thy, and was e.us ly moved by tbe
ir.fliiAiija flint ntsralrpn. rnmnaisinn
and urge the fullest-handed charily,
bhe was a child of the gutter, whose
early environment was poverty,
whose knowledge was necessarily
limited.'snd of whom it was not to be
expected that she shonld possess all
tbe virtues running me gauntlet oi
temptation aa a poor girl selling
oranges in the pit and the galleries of
a theater. It is so eary to bs good
when one has b en prompted iu
goodness and been surrounded by
good lDllucnces and strengthened
by education and daily drill
ing in self-restraint. "Peg" went
wrone, but here liant.es were many
and noble, and they covered a rnuhi-
tude cf tins. Xh s was the character
Mies Coghlan portrayed la it night.
With the tarte, tu:t and dis-
cietloa of a true aitmt,
she delineated all the vary
ing shades of humor and of
asuop. and all the moods oi
joy aud anger. of coquetry and arch-
ue s, ot Bdiisinur.y, tenuorncss ana
ynipdhy with goodness and wilely
devotion and anxiety, end w ith strug
gling gonius launcuid upon t) e
sot ol (hflpilr. Her laugh wus
contnci.ms. aid her dance, with
Interpo'a iooa of the wild Lrbh hur
rah and challenge!', ddimed wit'i a
boaut.ful br gue, was a touch of
nature that brought dowa the bouse.
Her scene with ' Pomander" in the
third act. whtn, with much coynes
andshjnesa, s!' per onated the de
mure "Mrs. vane," waB as un
shed as her Furpriae of "Oolley
Oibhsi" ard the nritiCJ whou
she emerged from tho pic. tiro whence
her rosy, pretty lace nai looked on
without, cbanuo while the learned
rfnari" disioursed so eloquently of lhe
kfects of poor "Trinlet'a" work. In
coattast with these wai the touchingly
effective scene witl "Mrs Vane." It
was pathetic and full of tears.
Another contrast aul contradic
tion of her supposed character
and charoc'crittica was her digni
fied dismissal of ' Pomander" and
her treatment of "Vanti" at the
dinner scene in tbe second act, when
shs so completely, and wilh hiopy
presence ot mind, turned toe tab en
upon "I'oinacuer ' auu severely pun
ished tbe recreant hustiaiid. All these
light) and shades were tempered
by an atis', hand and an
impres-ion was left npon the audience
of a finished porformance. Of Mrc.
Wolcoti's "Mrs. Vane" it may bo
said that it was an admirable
portrait. It wes a fine pro-
eeniht.on, charming for its b m-
plicity and strong in conscious i ec'i-
tude and a purp .bs to tave the man
ahs loved, ller cbttojies of mood
were very natural, and over It all she
threw the chrm of a very winning
way, "Mrs. Triplet" was a shock
ing piece of realism, a picture
of the . genius of starvation.
Of tha gisntomsn, "Mr. Triplet"
comes first. It was a most consistent
and thoroughly artistic piece of acting
and Mr. MacDonald cafried the sym
pathies of the audience with him from
his entry to his final exit.
His .impertuibsbility, his amiabil
ity and his inter.ee absorption
in his tmgoibB, bis comedies, bis
poems and his painting in presence of
his starving family, were portrayed
with quaint absurdity of manner, and
yet with sico self assured and
buovant hope that it conld not
have been otherwise, mr. waicoi ss
"Oolley Cihber"ira perfect. Ills make
nrj was a study, and his aSectation of
a smart old age tinctured with gout
won everybody's hearty approval.
Mr. Llpman, as "Vane," was very
good. As for tbe rest, it
only remains to say that
they were relatively sa excellent
in their parts, each contributing to
make the best performance of Mailt
and Factt we have ever bad here, and
this is saying a great deal, as It his
been put upon tbe same stage
by soms of the most celebrated
actors. Ton'eht Mies Coghlan will
appear as "Koialind" in At Vou
Like It a part in which she crealed a
future in New York, and with which
sho 's now thorocghly iJeniiflt?d. It
Is a charact"r very wide apait from
those In wh'ch s!:o bin already been
seen, and Cil's out ell her artietic ex
cellencie", all her training and expert
enr. Wosfsunie t'.t there will be
a full house, and w ftul sure that we
