The oitizens of Walhalla were sur

the news of the sudden death of Charles
M. Ridley, Sr., of Cherry Hill, this
oounty, was received. Mr. Ridley was
apparently enjoying good health. While
about his usual duties at bis home he
wau suddenly seized with a severe illness,
fell in the yard and was dead when as
sistance reached him. He was about 06
years of age. During the late war he
was a gallant Confederate soldier, being
a member of Company K, 12th South
Carolina Volunteers. His comrades
speak of him as an ideal soldier, ever
ready for duty, faithful to every trust
and obedient to idl commands. Ho pos
sessed to a marked degree tbo qualities
of daring and fearlessness that charac
terized OO many of tho members of the
Confederate army. While his lifo was
spout principally in the comparative ob
sen ri ty of tho cit i zen of tho hill country,
yet bo was known widely for his many
good traits. Ho was a good citizon, and
he will bo missed not ouly in bis homo
community, but in otbor parts of the
county, wbeie occasionally ho mado
short business trips and mingled pleas
antly among his friends. To the be
reaved family is extended tho sympathy
of many friouds.

Somo Blue Ridge Road Item?.
An analysis of the return < ' the Blue 1
Ridge Railway Company to the Comp
troller General's office for tho current
year reveals some faots that will interest
Anderson people. The Blue Ridge rail
way, proper, extends from Anderson to
Walhalla, the branch from Anderson to
Bolton being leased from the. Southern
Railway. The whole trackage. howAv?r,
is inoluded in the return.
There aro 43.04 miles of main 'rack,
returned at $3,000 per mile, and 4.00
miles of side track, returned at $3,000
per mile, tho total trackage being 48.03,
returned at $140,700, assessed at $153,700.
The five locomotives are returned at
$10,500, whioh ?B at the rate of $2,100
each; seven passenger ooaohoH are re
turned at $6,400, or a little over $000
oaoh, and the returns wero allowed to
Btand by the assessors.
The seven depots, returned at $4,300,
aro assessed at $5,500; wood and water
station, returned at $200, is raised to
$2,100, and eight other .buildings, re
turned at $1,800, aro assessed for taxation
at $2,050. The total valuation of build
ings listed on the return is $5,810, but
they aro assessed at $10,250.
The total amount of the road's
property is listed at $164,000, but the
board of assessors raised it to $100,500.
Tho return is supposed to havo been
mado on a basis of 100 bundrod por cont;
tho assessment ou a basis of 00 per cent
of tho actual value. As will be sceu
from this abstract, tho assessors mado
some drastic ohangOB in some features
and allowed others to stand unaltered.
Neither tho return uor tho assessment
upon it is correct, but tho two taken in
conjunction give a very fair idea of tho
sizo and value of the road.
Verdict of $2,500 for Killing of Smalley.
[Greenville Cor. Andorson Mail.]
Greenville, April 1.-Aftor remaining
out an hour and a half, tho jury in tho
caso of J. D. Smalley vs. tho Soutborn
Railway Company brought in a verdict
yesterday awarding $2,500 in damages to
tho plaintiff for tho death of his son,
Bonnio Smalley, who was alleged in the
company's answer to have boon a deaf
mute. Tho complaint demanded $25,000.
Tho attorneys wore R. T. J ayn OS and
McCullough aud McSwain for tho plain
tiff and Cotbran, Dean A Cotbran for tho
Tho trial was begun on Thursday
morning and continued until 5.80 o'olock
yesterday afternoon, when Judge Gary
concluded bis cbargo to tho jury. Tho
defendant's testimony was concluded
yostorday morning and tho arguments
boforo the jury followed. Speochos were
made by T. P, Cotbran, R. T. Jaynos, A.
II. Dean and Jos. A. McCullough.
Tho most interesting point about tho
caso, perhaps, was tho allegation in tho
answer that tho boy who was killed was
a deaf mute. This was contradicted by
tho plaintiff, and sovoral wituessos in
testifying for tho plaintiff said that he
was not entirely deaf, but could hoar
such sounds ns a gun shot, a locomotivo
whistle and tho like, under ordinary con
ditions. His loft ear especially, they
Baid, was not hopelessly impaired.
That tho plaintiff did not admit tho
boy was totally deaf accounted for tho
fact that bis attorneys woro careful to
provo, or ratbor to int rodeo testimony
tonding to provo, that tho locomotivo
v. hist le was not sounded on approaching
tho crossing at which Smalloy lost his
Ufo. Tho plaintiff rested its ease mainly
upon tho condition of tho headlight,
howover, which it alloged was not burn
ing or was in such bad condition as to bo
of no uso. All of tboso things woro do
niod by witnesses for the company, who
testified that the statutory signals on ap
proaching tho crossing woro given and
that the headlight was in good condition
Bonnio Smalley was killed in August,
uni I. Ho was about 15 years of ago. Ho
was on his way homo from tho cotton
mill at Westminster and was in tho act
)f crossing tho traok, it is said, whon
(truck by the locomotive.
As soon as tho verdict was announced,
mtico of a motion for a now trial was
innounoed by tho defendant's attorneys.
