EMPLOYEES WIN ARBITRATION.
Georgia Railroad Mon Aro Victorious
Under tlio Erdinnu Ar tv.
_ )?
Vtlanta, Ga., Nov. 27-Conductors
and trainmen of tito Georgia Rail
road, who recently went on strike
because of the discharge of two em
ployees by the system, won their de
mands when the arbitration board,
agreed upon by tho railroad and the
employees to settlo the dispute, or
dered tho railroad to reinstalo Hie
discharged men.
Tho verdict of tho arbitrators,
when read by tho umpire, Judge
William L. Chambers, was received
without a sign of d?monstration
from the scores of union men pres
ent. Asido from a general brighten
ing of faces there was no manifesta
tion of feeling at the news of the sig
nal victory.
Officials of the organizations wore
present in their accustomed places,
Vico Presidents T. A. Gregg and .las.
.Murdock occupying a table with Mr.
Paschal. General Manager Thos. K.
Scott and Superintendent \V. S.
Brand, of the Georgia Railroad, were
absent. Neither was Trainmaster J.
H, Chapman present, or other offi
cials who have been on band daily
during the entire progress of tho
hearing.
The employees discharged were
Conductor J. T. Paschal and Flagman
A- M. Morgan. Paschal was dis
charged because he allowed his engi
neer to work continuously more
than sixteen hours lu violation of the
Federal laws, according to railroad
officials. Morgan was discharged as
tho result of a controversy with the
railroad over an expense account, the
system's officers asserted.
Conductor Paschal did not deny
that he had allowed his engineer to
work more than sixteen hours, but
claimed that tho action was in ac
cordance with orders issued by the
railroad. Morgan admitted a mis
take in his expense account, but
claimed that after lt had boen cor
rected the company still objected to
a charge of fifty cents for two
lunches. Dispute over this led to his
discharge. Both employees asserted
the real reason for their discharge
was that they were prominent in the
trainmen's and conductors' unions.

North I/ends in Democrats.
Washington, Nov. 29.- It has just
been discovered by statisticians of
the House that for the first time in
the history of tho lower branch of
Congreso the Democrats of tho North
will outnumber their party col
leagues of the South. Never before
has democracy drawn its main
Strength from north of tho Mason
and Dixon line but as the investiga
tors figure it the party will have in
tho coming House 152 Northern
Democrats and only 140 from the
South, in party caucus, in case of a
split on sectional lines, this would
give tho Northerners a majority of
12. By reason of longer service,
however, the Southerners will con
trol virtually all of the important
committees and tims practically will
be able to direct the business of tho

VAUGHN APPEALS TO GOVERNOR
Mr. Bleaso Hears the Piteous Tolo of
tho Doomed Mon.
Columbia, Nov. 28.-Governor
BleaBo made a visit to the State pen
itentiary yesterday and had an hour's
talk with T. U. Vaughn, the Green
ville man under sentence to die in
tho electric chair, having been con
victed of crimlnal assault on inmates
, of the Odd Fellows' Orphan Home
while ho was its superintendent.
I Vaughn has addressed several com
j munlcatiouB from his cell in tile
death house to the Governor, asking
? for an opportunity to talk with him,
! and to-day tho Governor visited the
j penitentiary. Vaughn was brought
1 from bib cell in the death house to
j the superintendent's office, whore he
j talked with the Governor, who 11s
I tened patiently to tho piteous story
I of the condemned man, but all that
'he could promise him, was that he
I would think carefully over every
; thing he told him.
Vaughn Downcast.
Vaughn shows the strain under
. which he has been living and appears
? to be very blue and downcast. His
eyes are watery and he seems to be
living in the deepest kind of gloomy
spirits. Ile is kept confined in the
death house within a few feet of the
electric chair, where he has been sen
tenced to die on December 20. How
ever, the appealing of the case to the
Supreme Court has served as a stay
of the sentence of the court.
22 Years-$27 Watch.
The Governor, after talking with
Vaughn, went out Into tho peniten
tiary yard among the prisoners and
made an inspection. He found
among the prisoners au old negro,
"who has served already twenty-two
years for stealing a $27 watch, and
another negro who has served nearly
a dozen years for stealing $9.
Tho Governor looked over matters
around the State penitentiary, spend
ing considerably over an hour there.
Thero is moro catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than all other
