AS TO SCHEDULES.
General Manager C. H1. Ackert,.of
'the Southern Railway, with a party of
-officials, made a tour of the lines of
'this railroad some weeks ago. His
idea was to look at the situation in
person and to confer with his super
intendents so as to adjust the sche
ules of the entire syAtem.
An additional number of superin
tendents have been put on, and the
Mr. Ackert has anniounced that the
traffic depai'tinent is now at work
on a readjistment. of selodules.
On account of heavy traffic 1nd the
congestion of business generally, it is
probable that, (lie schedules will be
Imade slower', especially the fast
traiins, so that the r'ailroalds may be
nble to live il) to lie schedules as

AS TO PENSIONS.
Accor'd ingto th le reporlit of the
Coimpf roller (heneral, t he totalt amount
paid out ini penions t his y'ear is $228,
Newhierry has1 17'3 plensionlers onl the
roll andi r'eei ved $4t295.00.

We have hleard contsiderable coma
plaint from tihe old soldiers in this
counmty as to the manner in which this
pension money is distributed. A great
zhany of them take the position that
there ar'e pensioners on tihe roll, who
-are not entitled to be there, and that
if the management of this fund is not
dhanged so as to carry otut what was
the purpose and spirit of our pension
appropriations, to give pensions only
'to these who are really in need, that
'they would like to see the law re
'pealed, or have the fund distributed
so 'that every confederate soldier
should have his pro rata share of it.
Thaere Is no doubt in our' mind tflat
there is considerable ground for the
position taken as stated here. We
doubt if with $200,000.00 we aire doing
its mchi real good as we did when
the appropriation was only $50,000.00.
The tendency, with too many pen
sion boards, is to go on the principle
that the money has already boon levi
ed and eabh county had just as. well
get as much of it as possible, and
therefore tiey put names on the roll
that really would not be there, and
ought not to be there under the spirit
of our law, if this fund came out of
the county and not from a state fund,
and yet it is right that some of the
more wealthy counties should bear
this burden with those that are not so
We desire to do whatever is right
and proper by the old confederate
soldiers anid certainly we do not want
to see any of them suffer.

ed meal, composed of
