TUE SOUTHERN SCHEME
Rumored that there Will Be Two
Ilentlqunrters of One in TCnnliliiBton,
the Oilier In ITueluuatl-'Ihe Re?
port ??rlKlni*ced In *be West
KoiIiIiik Know? Here.
There is talk In railroad circles out
West of a division of the management
of the Southern railroad. It is reported
that the Southern is making an effort
to lease the Cincinnati Southern, and
If this can be done there will be two
systems. Cincinnati will be made head?
quarters for the lines west of Atlanta,
Ga., and Bristol, Tenn., with Samuel
Felton, of Cincinnati, in charge.
The lines cast of Atlanta und Bristol
will constitute the eastern system, with
headquarters probably in Washington.
The Atlanta Constitution says:
"This sounds very improbable, but
that the people of Cincinnati have been
tulking it for some time."
NO REASON GIVEN.
No particular reason is Riven for the
division of the system, but the prece?
dent of the Pennsylvania road is quoted.
This company has two systems, one
east of Pittsburg, with headquarters
in Philadelphia, und the other west of
Plttsburg, with general offices In that
Mr. Felton, who Is mentioned as the
probable general manager of the west?
ern system, Is at present receiver of
the Cincinnati Southern.
The Constitution says "the chances
nre that the Southern will get the Cin?
cinnati Southern, as the business men
of Cincinnati believe it would be bel?
ter for that city.
THE WESTERN SYSTEM.
"Resides the present lines owned or
controlled by the Southern railway, in?
cluding the Cincinnati Southern road,
the Louisville, Evansville and St. Louis
road, which Is now in the hands of a
receiver, is to be secured and added to
-trra?western?syst ens. of the Southern
railway. This western system will then
Include the Cincinnati Southern road,
the Memphis and Charleston division of
the Soli them railway, extending from
Memphis to Chattanooga; the Georgia
Pacific, it portion of the old East Ten?
nessee, Virginia and Georgia road;
Louisville*. Evansville and St. Louis,
and other lines, which combined, will
make a system with n mileage of pro?
bably between 2,000 and ?.000 miles."
NO ONE KNOWS.
There Is no one in Norfolk who knows
anything about the proposed change.
No Norfolk end to the story. A well
known ofllclnl of the Southern was
questioned yesterday as to the truth of
the rumor and said: "There is no one
in Norfolk who can give you any In?
formation on tills subject."
Should there be n division tho busi?
ness men of Norfolk do not think It
would in the slightest degree affect the
trade of this port The terminal facili?
ties of the Southern here nre very ex?
tensive, large Improvements were made
lnst year, business was good and it is
said that this year larger trafllc is ex?

A SPLENDID COMPANY.
Tho Richmond Dispatch spoke very
highly of K?ster & Dial's second vau?
deville company, which is at the Acad?
emy of 'Music to-night and to-morrow
matinee and night. It says:
The vaudeville, as presented at mati?
nee and evening performances at the
Academy yesterday, gave satisfaction
and was an exci llent bill. It was a bet?
ter offering than that given Christmas,
the specialties, though, not as high
class as those of last week, Unding more
favor witli the audience. Williamson
and Stone, black face comedians,
proved themselves clever dancers, and
gave something that made an instant
hit when they took their cue and. did
an "Eplt" duo in rag time.
Bertha Wagr.cr and Bruno Arnim, in
their "Opera in the Kitchen," did some
pleading Vocal work, which they enli?
vened wit'h comedy business and bur?
Tho KraeTners, acrobatic bicyclists,
performed some clever tricks that won
hearty applause. The net of Sadl Al
farabi. the equilibrist, wsis great, and
some of his almost wonderful feats of
balancing caused chicken-hearted
members of tho audience to hold their
breath. The electrical effects added
considerably to this turn, which, how?
ever, needed no dressing to make it
The head liners. Bessie Bonehill and
Gus Wlllllams, both made big hits. "Our
Gorman Senator" did a lively talking
act, that had many good things in lit,
and, of course, he played on the piano,
"There's a Land That is Fairer Than
IXiy." every false note causing a roar
of laughter. Bessie Bonehill, In her
male impersonations, had a catching
little winy about her that compelled you
to like her, whether you wished to or
not. And when she consumed two mln
uttes in making a change she asked you
(through the orchestra leader) t<> for?
give her in such an "awfully sorry"
manner, "dont yon know." that you
just had to, and felt it a privilege to be
s-o. It Isn't so much what Bessie Bone?
hill does, but vt Is the way ehe does
it, that wins the audience over.
