"Railroad official," in his letter in
quiring into Mr. McMaster's position
on the railroad question, asks:
Are you not aware that in making
the rate from New York to Winnsboro
the question of water competition is
an element and that the rate is made
o. the lowest combination and that
under the long and short haul clause
no such element will enter into it or
be permitted, and that the rate to
Winnsboro and other Interior towns
will be much higher than now?
I think if he was aware of these
facts he would not have written as he
did. The enforcement of the fourth
'section would kill interior towns.
The question Is unintelligible. While
he was about it"Railroad official" ought
to have explained what he meant by
saying that "water competition Is an
element, and that the rate is made on
the lowest combination." ie ought
to have told, too, how it was that
"under the long and short haul clause
no such element will enter into it or
be permitted." If he had done these
things he would have given some rea
son why It is that he "thinks" that If
Mr. McMaster had been aware of
these facts that lie would not have
written as he did.
"Railroad official" further say.:
"That the enforcement of the fourth
section would kill interior towns."
For this timely exhibition of gen
erous solicitude, we are of course ex
tremely thankful. In this (lay of
perfect peace, when the lion and lamb
may lie down together, we may almost
cease "to fear the Greeks even when
It is worso than nonsensical for the
Legislature to pass an Act that Is not
approved by the great body of the
people. It is positively harmful be
cause it tends to destroy all respect
for law. The same unfortunate result
follows every effort on the part of
executive authority to enforce laws
that have become obsolete by season
of being out of harmony with the
spirit of the ago. The people won't
obey, and are therefore compelled to
resort to all manner of evasions.
The "old blue laws" of Now York
will presently iirnish good Illustra
tion. The inhabitants of the cities of
New York and Brooklyn have stub
bornly resisted the recent eff'orts to
enforce thiem; they have applied to the
Legislature without success to repeal
it, and now the Star comes along wvith
the following bold and significant sug
The question is, Shall weo in New
York and Brooklyn observe an enact
ment which Is conatemptuously ignored
In every other part of the State? Shall
we continue to revive against our
selves a dead letter which Is kept upon
the statute book only because it is irk
seine and oppressive to us? Or shall
we do as the Pharisees in the country
(10 take the course that Is most agree
able to ourselves and commend to our
neighbors what to tisem Is most repul
There is no doubt about the final
outcome of It. The people of New
York City don't believe in the law,
and they are not going to respect It
long. The Legislature was given an
opportunity to save itself fr'om con-i
tempt and it would not. Now we
shall see what we shall see.
The Lawyer's JFame.
It was the wish of flume's family
that he should bo' a lawyer, and ho
went so far as to commence the study
of' the law; but it seems to have been
distastef\il to him, and ho says him
self: "While they fancied I was
pouring upon Voet and Vinnius, Cicero
and Virgil were the authors which I
was secretly devouring."
If David llume had continued th6
prosecution of the study of the law
posterity would probably have heard
but little of him. The greatest of the
English philosophers would hardly
have said of' him as he did a short
while agqgin a public' address at Eden
burg, "That I make bold to pronounce
David Hlume the greatest philosopher
that the eighteenth century produced,
even though that century produced a
Prof. Huxley tells us in his life of
flume that "there appear to have been
in Hlume all the elements of which a
good lawyer Is made; clearness of
judgment, power of rapidly acquiring
knowledge, untiring Industry, and
dialectic sill; and if lia mind had
not been preoccupied, lie might have
fallen Into the gulf In which many of
the world'e greatest geniuses lie
anight have left behind him a reputa
tion limited to the traditional recol
lections of the parliament house or
associated with Important decisions."
This is highly complimentary to the
bar, but it is a warning to the youth
votry of fame. The lawyer's
rame is hit contemporar - ,d'
with hlq. 3r.(

which they rondered.
A TRP TOTXAB.
.Messrs. Editors: In our last we
took leave of your readers jusc as we
emerged from, the depot building in
Chattanooga. The first sight that
greeted us was a large force of labor
ers, white and colored, busily at work
laying water pipes along the street.
The moi'ning air was quito cool and
our overcoats felt very comfortable,
but those workmen being urged on
by their boss, a son of the Emerald Isle,
were with pick and spade and shovel
making the hard, rocky grouid fly,
and though in their shirt sleeves did
not appear to need any fire to warm
by. the streets are ndrrow and
appear very rough, but were crowded
with wagons and other vehicles busily
transporting the different articles of
commerce. The people were hurry
ing along the pavements in every
direction as though everything in life
depended on their reaching a certain
polut in a given! time. All of which
tended to; strengthen the impression
that this Is a busy, bustling, active
city, and, has a brilliant future. Judg
iug froin. the bulletin boards displayed
on the streets, tild .whole town is "for
sale", at prices, however, which makes
the average mau'e' head swim. A
boom has struck "the' town, and trans
actions.in real estate partake a good
deal-of the nature of Wall street doal
ings in stocks and bonds. Any one
wfth only a small amount to loose had
better be careful in making invest
ments in any town with a big boom
on hand. The church is active also
to its duty, and in the most public
places are notices giving the location
of the different churches, name of
pastor, hours of service and a cordial
invitation to the stranger to attend.
The writer had no surplus cash to
deposit here and so made a hasty
tramp along the principal streets to
satisfy himself, returning to the depot
in time for the departure of the Miem
phis & Charleston train, and bidding
adieu to Chattanooga was sout whir.
ing along at a.rapid pace in the direc
tion of Memphis. In the distance
loomed up Lookout Mountain,. upon
whose summit a company of capital
ists have excavated a beautiful lake,
and are now erecting a large, hand
some hotel building. In 'the memory
of some of us this was once a pretty
warm place, but now that peace
reigns in our land, will soon become a
famous summer resort.: Our rdute
lay along the Toniessee River and we
rush on, now, -apparently about to
plunge bag and baggage, into its
liquid bosom, changing our ioursd
just in time to prevent so 'dirba
calamity and see it flow -peacefully
along on its way to the sea. Now we
find ourselves in utter darkness, when
all of' a sudden we burst from the
tunnel and the sun shines upon us as
brightly as ever. frow we enter a
superb iron bridge which carries us
-safely over Chicamauga Creek whbich
creek gives the name to a bloody
battle-fleid bt a .few miles distant
from pur poiut of crossing, where a
loved brother gave up 'bis life in
defense of his own beloved Southern
land. Can it be possible that our
cause was not just? That after' all we
were sadly mistaken and deserved
deafeat? Sleep on dear brother, rest
in peace. We do know that our citi
zen soldiers wvent forth in defense of
an invaded country, and will receive
as they deserve, thle homage of all
good citizens. "Glorious is his f'ate
and envied is his lot who for his
country fights and for It dies."
Shis M. & C. Railroad, as it winds
its way along, on the one hand the
mountains, on the other the river,
which it crosses, but to coss again in
a few hundred yards, is itself a grand
triumph of engineering skill. I fell
In conversation with an old resident
of North Alabama, who gave me an
account of affairs in his section of
country during "our late nnpleasant
ness. He joined the Southern army,
while his brother cast his fortune with
the other side. When they loft home
each made a vow to kill the other if
the opportunity ever presented itself.
Fortunately they never meet In battle,
and now live as near neighbors, but
said my new-made frieaid, "we have
not spoken to each other yet." I as
sured him that the war was over, but
I fear to littie purpose. In answer
to the question, "What is land worth
along here?" the reply was, "They
ask two hundred dollars~ an acre, but
it is not worth a -- cent." lie was a
farmer, hence his valuation. The
land Is full of iron ore, which is 'held
In almost as high esteem by its owners
as it was by a good old man long
since gone to rest. Just after the
battle of King's Mountain, as the story
goes, this good old gentleman led In
prayer at a thanksgiving meeting i
something like these Wyords: "Lord,
we thank Thee for the many mercies
Thou has givent us, 'and the many
battles we have won. We thank
Thee for the groat victory of Cowpens,
where old Tarleton was forced to flee
before our victorious troops, We
thank Thee for the death of old Forgn
son at King's Mountain, and. If Ye
had not suffered the British and Tories
to' burn Billy 'Hill's iron wvorks, we
would ask 'no further favors of Ye."
We passed through a rather thin, but,
picturesque country, the towns giving
evidence of a good degree of prosper
ity, reaching Memphis about 10 o'clock
at night. Here 'we had a lay over till
morning and scuring a bed retired to
rest, which privilogei we also now
