Six Thouunuil CnrI.onla of Wntcr
Atlanta, Ga., May 31. Truck farming
has become, during tho past five years, one
of the most important and remunerative
industries in Georgia. Mr. Josoph Taylor,
General Freight Agent of tho
Florida & Western railroad, says :
"From rcliablo data furnished it is estimated
that tho crop of Jinolo'ns along the
lino of tho road will roach for this scaon
3,000 to 3,500 car-loads." Without count,
ing other points of culture it is tnfo to sat
that Georgia will produco this year u.Oui,
car londs of melons or more 'than 7,500.-000
separate melons. Tho price of 'melon
ranged in Chicago last year from 28 to :t(i
,cents. Averaging tho crop this year at
'20 cent, and putting l,2r0 melons to the
car, ench car will bo worth S2o0. This
will mnko tho crop worth $1,500,000.
This amount of cash poured into the
States in the middle of tho dull Kiimmci
will bo of incalcunblo benefit. How to
get tho crop to market is a serious problem.
Tho shipments will begin about
the middlo of Juno and end about tho
middle of August. Tho bulk of it mus;
be moved in forty days. This will give
an averngoof 150 cars, or ten solid trains
of fifteen cars each a day. The roads
will bo frequently called to move twenty
full melon trains a day. It will tako at
least seven days for a train to reach the
markets ind return. We may expect,
therefore, to sco during tho month of
July 100 trains of fifteen cars each loaded
with Georgia melons, and on tho road to
and from market. At the same time,
cars will bo needed at the melon
to load for new trips. Tho facib
ities of tho road ore thought to be equal to
the emergency. Tho truck and molons for
tlw Eastern markets will find their way
mainly by tho ocean routes and tho, coast
lines. Tho East Tcnnesseo & Virginia
and tho Konnesaw & Air-Lino routes will
carry to tho East whatever surplusage is
'offered. To accommodate tho great rush to
the Northwest thcro are threo routes opon
tho Louisvillo & Nashville, the East Tennessee
& Stato road, and each of theso has
provided special equipment.
New York, May 31 Another electric
lighting company is on the tapis in this
city. Negotiations havo been going on for
Boroctimo between a few leading businos3
men, and Edward II. Goff, President of tho
American Elcctrlo and Illuminating Company,
of Boston, for tho introduction of tho
Thomson-Houston systom of oloctrio lighting,
and tho organization of a strong

lcro in Now York. Mr. Goff promises, in
tho ovent of tho subscription to tho stook
of tho company asked for, to guarantee a
liko amount by his company, when they
would commence operations immediately
on tho construction of the plant. Mr. Golf
is now in tho city, and a conference with
leading capitalists has been hold which
bids fair to lead to satisfactory results. A
few months ago tho Thompson-Houston

unheard of hero, but tho superior qualities
of tho light and tho great advantago which
the system possesses over that of all othor
eystoms of aro lighting horotoforo in uso
has been so rapidly developed by the Amori-can
Elootrio and Illuminating Company

New York, May 31. Tho World ht9
been at pains to sccuro legal advice regarding
tho chances for Mrs. Langtry to secure
a divorce in this country, and. publishes tbc
following opinions of eminent counsol:
Can Mrs. Langtry obtain a divorce from
her husband 7 This question has been often
asked siuco the announcement wits nmdo
that tho fair Jersey Lily intends to begin
proceedings to thatoffoct hero in Now York.
Tho statement that sho was going to
plead abandonment or de3ortion ns a
ground induced an inquiry whether it was
a good plea.
what the judges say.
Judge Donohuo, of the Supreme Court, in
answer to a question, said:
" There is no such law. Thcro is only
ono ground of divorco in this Stato. 01
courso there may bo a separation from bef
mid board for abandonment or desertion,
but such a separation docs not break the
marriago tie, and would not permit Mrs.
Langtry to marry again."
" Would not Mrs. Langtry have to show
tlmt she has been a resident of the State
for at least a year 7"
"Has sho overbad a legal domioile in
' Ah," replied tho learned Judge with a
twinkle in his eye, ' now you aro asking
my opinion on a question of fact. I am
willing to lay down the law for you, though
you know what the saying is : ' Everyone
is presumed to know tho law, oxcept
tho judge?, and thoy require two lawyers
in each caso to tell them what tho law is.'
" I can not express any opinion on a
question of fuct. Mrs. Langtry, you know,
might begin proceedings in tho Supremo
Court, and ns one of the Justices of that
court I might bo called upon to pass judgment
on the facts of her domicile, cause of
notion, etc. 1 would firBt want to hear witness
and counsel before giving my opinion."
is not the shoe on the other toot.
Judge McAdam, of the Marino Court,
said : " Thero is only ono ground on which
n divorco cau be obtained in this State.
The decree in such a case allows the complainant
to remarry. A soporation from
bed and board may bo had for abandonment
or for cruel and inhumane treatment.
" The statute docs not fix any time that
the abandonment must continue, for the
bill of complaint may be filed as soon as
tho cause of action takes place."
" Has Mr. Langtry abandoned his
" I very much doubt whether Mrs. Langtry
can conscientiously say, muoh less
prove, that her husband has deserted her.
when 3I10, of her own voluntary accord,
abandoned tho placo of his domicile for a
home among strangers."
" For how long a time must Bho bo a
resident of this Stato beforo she can begin
her divorce proceedings?"
" For at least ono year prior to tho time
of filing her complaint. Sho could
scarcely claim that sho intended in good
faith to make this State her homo while
her acts show that her intention was to
journey from place to place wherever an
engagement as an actress was to bo had."
AN ACTOIl's RESIDENCE.
" How then could an actress who is
almost constantly ' on tho road ' be
domiciled in any Stato?"
" An actor who once acquires a residence
in this State does not loso it by a theatrical
pilgrimago from placo to placo whoro ho
has no intention of changing his domicile,
but where, as in tho caso of Mrs.
Langtry, she has no fixed domicile in this
country, sho can scarcoly acquire one as a
bird of passage."
" What effect would Mr. Gobhard's almost
constant escort of her have upon hor chance
of succeeding in obtaining a divorce?"
" If a bill of separation were filed and a
defense interposed Mr. Gebhard, while, perhaps,
guilty of no act of impropriety,
might at the solicitation of Mr. Langtry be
required to explain why he has taken so
much interest in an abandoned wife."
WHAT THE LEADERS OF THE BAR SAT.
" I think," said Roger A. Pryor, " that
thero is a mistake in the roport that Mrs.
Langtry is going to commence divorco proceedings
in this Stato. Sho will have no
success hero, as sho shows no cause of action,'
either for a divorco a vinculo
or from bed and board. Tho reporter
may havo intendod to name another
" Is there any Stato in the Union where
sho could obtain an absolute divorco on tho
grounds sho alleges ? "
" Lord bless you, sho need only to go over
to Rhodo Island and remain thcro twelve
months to obtain hor divorco. Lot mo read
you tho statute of that Stato on tho subject.
I wish you would givo it in full, just
to show how lax thoy are in that Stato in
dissolving tho holiest tio that man or woman
can enter into. Perhaps your publication
may load to a very necessary roform
in that respeot."
" But how about her residence thero?"
"That is ono of tho most difficult things
to disprove Rcsidenco is mado up of tho
not of living in a placo and tho intention
of remaining thero. Now, tho aot of living
in a hotel, occupying a furnishod
room, otc, will show tho living in a placo,
and as for tho intention of remaining, tho
Court would havo to tako hor word for it."
" Sho could chango her intention on tho
day after sho got her dooreo ?"
Mr. Josoph II. Choate, of tho firm, of
Evarts, Southmayd & Choate, said: "I
am happy to say that I know nothing of
tho law of divorce. You will find plenty
of other lawyers who make a specialty of
that branoh of the profession and who
know all about it."

From Previous Report.
New York, May 81. A fearful
occurred on the East River Bridgo
yesterday afternoon, by which a' large
number of people have lost their livoi.
Tho narrowness of tho footway for passengers
is tho causo of tho horror. The majority
of the dead are so far unidentified. At
about 4 o'clock the long line of people on
foot in tho center walk of tho structure
going from and coining to this city thickened,
swelled, nnd stopped in its motion
just at the stairs leading up fiom the
e roadway to tho bridgo proper. Strong
men nnd feeble women, manhood and
infancy were wedged together in that
jam by tho fearful pressure of the
crowd, which extended miles, one
might say, on either end of
the line. It was a remorseless, fearful,
stupid force that held its victims as immovable
ns the stono foundations of the
bridgo itself. Tho stoppage lasted nearly nn
hour, during which tiuio scores of people
fainted. To relievo the jam the bridge otticals
removed somo of tho iron paling a few feet
from the stairway on tho New Vork side,
when, of course, those unfortunate enough
to be nenr the opening, weak and fainting
ns they were, immediately fell bolter
skelter, heols over head, down on the
jagged, grrtvely road beneath, a mass ol
bruised, discolored human tlesh. Scores
wore trampled upon instantly, aud to
Btumblo was death. .Men were dragged out
of that heap of helpless humanity with
faces blue as indigo, and the life blood
trickling out of their nostrils; children
and women pale, disheveled and dead.
The roadway on either side of the walk
was strowed with the dead and dying a
pitiable sight and yet, it is said, no efforts
wcro made by tho bridgo officials to stop
people coming on the bridge.
The dead and dying were carried off in
wagons, carts, otc, improvised on tho moment
for tho service. Meanwhile teams
wore rushing both ways at full gallop over
tho roadway, threatening the limbs and
lives of thoso on foot who wcro attempting
to assist tho unfortunnte victims.
At the Chambers Street Hospital are
lying thirteen dead six unknown men, Bix
unknown women, and George Smith, of
No. 42 Water street. Tho office was filled
with pcoplo making frantic inquiries for
missing friends, and with hysterical women.
Two more of tho dead, ono a boy of
fifteen years and the other a young woman,
aro lying at tho city hall police station,
Tho scene in the City Hall Polico Station
was simply terrible. Women were
and wringing their hands, men with
torn clothing and bleeding faces, and all
around tho forms of the wounded, most of
them unconscious, lying beside tho walls.
Every now and again a frantio mo'thpr
would rush in inquiring for somo ono lost,
but th ore woro nono to answer her, for tho
rovival of tho insensible concerned all.
Thon tho janglo of tho ambulanco bells
added to tho confusion, as wagon aftor
wagon tore up to tho door and tho surgeons
descended. A porfect stream of
forms was borno into tho station on
strotohors, as tho ambulances woro filled
and driven away.
"I was walking along tho bridgo toward
tho Now York entrance," said a man who
hold a young girl by tho hand who
wns crying bitterly, " when I heard
ehouting and soreaming suddenly
ariso in front of mo. Thon I saw hats,
sticks, and hands stretched aloft, and with
ono scream tho wholo donso mass surged
and swayed toward tho gatos. I
tho pooplo thought tho bridgo was
coming down. Anyway thoy fought,
Borcamcd and yolled liko demons. Children
and women woro knooked down and
trampled upon, and I was borno irresistibly
out of tho entranoo. Thon I found this
girl, who had lost hor friends, and hero
weLaro, sajk thank Godj!'
Mr. Mortcn7 superintendent of tho
bridge, was scon by a reportor a few
minutes aftor tho acoident. He said:
" Fivo minutes before word camo to my
oflico nbout tho catastropho I received
word, in answer to my inquiry, that everything
wns going on smoothly on tho
bridge, and tlint tho pedestrians
were moving along quietly. I
certainly haYO no idea what
caused tho horriblo tragedy, as
various nccounts havo rftachod mo. From
four dsstinct sources I bear, however, that
a panic wns brought about by a gnng of
pickpockets. Tho New York policemen
hod warned us to-day that thioves and
.nko men wero "operating on tho bridge,
out as nono of tlicin wero identified, of
courso wo could do nothing. As soon ns I
hoard of tho crash, I ordered the roadways
to bo thrown open, and people aro going
across that way now."
It was not until tho dead wagons came
out that tho public know anything of tho
catastrophe. Tho wagons wero followed
off rho bridgo by women crying for
their children, and men crying for their
wives. Several of tho women wcro half
naked, nnd many hud on only rags. Ono
woman had both her shoes torn off nnd almost
all wcro bareheaded. Thero wcro
hundreds of tliom dishovelcd anil crying.
Their faces wore whito, nnd in
many instances wcro covered with dust
When tho approach was cleared at last it
was literally covered with articles of clothing
and personal property abandoned
in tho struggle. Thoy wcro viewed
with amazement by tho pcoplo
coining over from Brooklyn who
had not heard of tho disaster.
In tho excitement of tho crush

man, deliberately jumped from the bridgo
