This is camp meeting Sunday at Ocean
Grove. Ita celebration is always re
garded an the Kreut event of the year at
tills famouH religions watering place.
This year tbc attractions uf its obser
vance have been enhanced by the pres
ence of Dr. Talma??, who preached
this afternoon in the Auditorium. Every
seat was tilled and every iuch of stand
ing room In the aisles was occupied,
and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed.
It is estimated that lully till eon thous
and persons wcro able to hear the doc
tor, and many others were deprived'of
that privilego. His text was Danie l xi.

shall bo strong and do exploits."
Antiochus Epiphanes, the old shun r,
came down threw tunes with his army to
desolate tho Israelites, advaucing *onb
tirao with a hundred und two trained
elephants, swinging Ihoir hunks this
way and that, and sixty-two thousand
infantry and six thousand envuh > Iroopa,
and thev were driven back. Then, I ho

thousand armed men, am! had bei n

laid successful siege until the navy of
Home came in with the Hush ot their
long banks of oars and demanded thai
tho hie?o Ii? Idled. And Auliot-hu*
Epiphanes suid he wanted time to con
sult with his frieuds about it. and l'opi
hus, one of the Roman ombassadoi'S,
took a stull and made a circle on tho
ground around Antiochus Epiphnncs,
and compelled him to decide beton; ho
came out ol that circle: whereupon he
lifted the siege. Some of the. Hebrews
had submitted to the invader, but some.
. of them resisted valorousl.y, as did
Eleu/id' when ho had swine's llesh lorced
into his mouth, spit it out, although ho
knew he must die for it, ami did die for
it; and others, as my text says, did ex
AM. HAVE TU HEN OPPORTUNITIES.
An exploit. I would define to bo an
heroic act, a brave leal, a great achieve*
ment. "Well," you say, "1 admire
such Dungs, but there is no chance lor
me; mine Is a sort ol humdrum lite. If
I had au Antiochus Epiphnncs to light.
I also could do exploits." You are
right, so lar us great wars are concern*
? ed. There will probably be uo oppor
tunity to distinguish yourself in battle.
The most of the brigadier generals ol
this country would never have "been
heard of had it not beuu for the war.
Neither will you piobably become a
groat inventor. Niuetccn hundred ami
niuety-niue out ot every two thousand
inventions found in the putcut office at
Washington uCver yielded their authors
enough money to pay for the expenses
of securing the patent. So you will pro
bably never be a Morse or an Edison or
a Humphrey Davy or nu Eli Whitney.
There is not much probability that you
will be the one out of the hundred who
achieves extraordinary success in com
raercial or legal or medical or literary
spheres. What then? Cau you have
no opportunity to do exploits? I urn
going to show that there are tliioo op
portunities open that are grand, thrill
ing, far reaching, stupendous and over
whelming. They arc bet?re you now.
In one, if not all three of them, you may
do exploits. The three greatest tilings
on eartli to do arc to save a man, or
save a woman, or save a child.
During the course of his life almost
every mnu gets into an exigency,
caught between two lires, is ground be
tween two millstones, sits nu the edge
of some precipice, or in some oilier way
comes near demolition. 1l may be a
financial or a moral or a domestic or a
social or a political exigency. Voll
sometimes see it in court-rooms. A
young man has got into bad company
and he has ollcndcd the law, and he is
arraigned. All blushing and confused
he Is in the presence ot judge and jury
and lawyers, lie call be sent right on
inthe wrong direction. He is leoliog
disgraced and he is almost desperate.
Let the district attorney overhaul him
its though he were an old oll ender; lot
the ablest attorneys at the bar rcluso to
say a word lor him. because ho canuot
afford a considerable fee; let the judge
give no opportunity for presenting ihe
mitigating circumstances, hurry up the
case and hustle him up to Auburn or
Sing Sing. If he live seventy years, fur
seventy years he will be a criminal, and
each decade of his life will bo blacker
than its predecessor. In the luterreg?
nums of prison life ho can get no work,
and he is glad to break n window glass
or blow up a satb or play Use highway*
man so as to get back within the walls
where, ho can get something to cat und
hide himself from the gaze of tho world.
HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN SAVED,
Why don't his lather conic and help
him? His lather is dead. Why don';
his mother como and help him? She Is
dead. -Where are all the ameliorating
and salutary influences of society? Thoy
do not touch him. Why did not some
one long ago in the case understand that
there, was an opportunity lor the exploit
which would bo famous in heaven a
quadrillion of years after tho earth has
become ((battered ashes in the last whirl
wind? Why did not the district alter
noy take that young man into his pri
vate ofllco and Hay: "My son, 1 SCO that
you aro tho victim of circumstances.
This is your llrst crime. You are sorry.
1 will bring tho person you wronged in
to your presence, and you wilt apologize
and mako all the reparation you can,
and 1 will give you another chance,"
Or that young man is presenUd in tho
courtroom, and ho has no friends pres
ent, and tho judgo suys, "Who is your
counsel?" And he "-answers, "I nave,
none.' Aud the judge says. "Who
Wfll tako this young man's cum:?"
And ihn i! is a dead halt, and lid one
offers, and alter awhile tho judge turns
to some attorney, who never had a good
case in all bis lifo and never will, aud
whoso advf^ncy would bo enough to se
cure the condemnation of innocence it
self. And tho professional incompetent
crawls up beside the prisonor, holpless
ness to reecuo despair, whetc there ought
to be a struggle among nil the best men
of the profession as to who should have
the honor of trying to help that unfor
tunate. How rauch would such an at
torney have received as his fee for such
an advocacy? Nothiug In dollars, but
much fArery way in a happv conscious

Hundreds of thousands of people say,
"It seems we aro g<">?n*r to have uo

o'" goods, and some, oversauguiuo young
merchant is caught with u vast amount
of unsalable goods that will never bo
salable Again, except at prices ruinously
The young merchant with a somewhat
limited capital is in a predicament.
What shall the old merchants do as they
sec the young raun Ii) this nwful crisis?
Hub their bauds and luugh and say:
"Good for him. Ho might have known
better, When ho ha* been in business
as long nu wo have be will not load his
shelves In that way. IIa! IIu! He will
burst up before loug. Ho had no busi
ness to open his store vo uear to ours

spring hats or tall clothing out of date?
Vvhni do I hear In tho way of ab:d?"
"Four dollar.-." "Absurd; I cnmuH

Hu market were ollere 1 ot fifteen dollars
ench, and now I am offered only four
dolfatS, Is that all? Five dollars do 1
hear? Going at thai! Gono at Uvo dol
lars." and he lakes tho whole lot.
The young merchant goes homo that
night and a ivs to his wife: "Well, Mary,
we will have to move, out ot this house
aud sell our piano. That old merchant
lhal lias had an evil eye on me ever since
I started has bought out all that collh
lUg, und he will have it rejuvenated, and
next .year put it on the market as no*,
while we will do well if we keep out of
the pOOl'house." The young man, brok
en spirited, goes to bard drinking. The
young wife with her baby goes to her
farlhcr'a house, and not only is his store
wjped out, but his Imme, his morals and
I is prospects for two worlds?this and
die next. And devils make a bnnkquet
oj lire and lill theiccupa of gall, and drink
deep to the health ot the old merchant
who swallowed up the young merchant
who got stuck cn mrlng goods aud went
down. That is oco way, and some of
you have. lrl( d it.
sa vi. him in this WOltlil) AND THE
Uui tl > re is another way. That young
merchant who found that ho bad mis
calculated in laying in too e any goods
of one kind, and been Hung of the unusu

ter, feeliug very blue and biting his lin
ger nails, or looking over his account

An old merchant comes iu aud says:
"Well, Joe, this has been a hart''season
for young merchants, and this prolonged

drums, and I have been thinking of you
a good deal of late, lor just alter 1 start
ed in busdieas I once got into tho same
scrape. Now, i! there is any thing I can
do io help you out I will gladly do it.
Better just put those goods out of sight
for tho present, and next season wo will
plan something about them. 1 will help
you to some goods thut you can soil for

to one of the wholesale houses and tell
them that 1 know you and will back you
up, und If you waul a few dollars to
bridge over tho present 1 can lot you
have them. Uc as economical as you
can, keep u stiff upper lip, and remem
ber that you have two friends, God and
myself. Good morning!"
The old merchant goes away and the
young man goes behind his desk, and
the tears roll down his cheeks. It is the
Ural lime be bus cried. Disaster made

and m id at God, Hut ibis kindness
melts hliii, and the tears seem to relieve
his brain, and his spirits rise irom ten
boldW zero '.o eighty in the shade, aud ho
comes out ot the crisis.
About three years after, this young
merchant goes Into tho old merchuui's
store and sayti "Well, my old friend,
I was iliis morning thinking over what
you did lor me three years ago. You
hclpi d me out of oU awful crisis In my

roses that were there when I courted

again, and my business Is splendid, and
I thought 1 ought to let you know that
sou saved a man!"
In ft short time ufler, the old mcr
chnut, who hud been a i/ood while shaky
in his limbs und who laid poor spells, Is
called to leave the world, and one morn
ing niter he had read tho twenty-third
Psalm about "The Lord is my shop.
he*(I," he closes his eyes in this world,
and an angel who had been for many
years appointed to watch the old man's
dwelling, cries upward the news that
the patriarch's spirit is about nacend
log, and 'ho twolvo angels who keep
tin: twelve miles of luavcu, unite iu cry
ing down to tlii? approaching Spirit of
the old man. "Come in and welcome,
for it has hern told all over these col
estial lands ilnit you saved a man."
TUB WOULD AGAINST A WOMAN.
rThere lometimes come exigences in
tue life of a woman. Ono morniug a
few year* mo I saw In tho nowsptper
that there was a jotthg woman in New
York Whose po<ketbook, containing
lliirty-Hoven dollars and thirty-three
cents Ik d been SlolcO, and she had been
left without a penny at the beginning of
winter in a strange city, and no work.
And although slio was a stranger, I did
not allow the '.) o'clock mall to leavo the
lamppost on our corner without carry
ing the thirty-seven dollars and thlrty
thieo cents, and the cane was proved
.v>w, i have read all Shakespeare's
tragedies, and all Victor Hugo's trage
dies, and all Alexander Smith'?, trage
dies, but I never read a tragedy more'
thrilling ilinn that case, and aimiliar
cases by tho hundivda und thousands In
all our large cities. Young women with
out money aud without home and with
out work in the great mnels roms of
metropolitan life. When auch a caae
comes under your observation, how do
you Lent ii? "Get out of my way. We
have no room iu our establishment for
any more hands. I don't believe iu wo
"nTcff*-;'U\way. They are a lazy. Idle,
worthless sol. .lo'm, please show this
person out ot the door.''
Or do you compliment her personal
nppe nance und say things to her which
il any man said to .your sister or daugh
ter you would kill him on the spot?
Thai is one way. and it I* tried every day
in the large cities, and many of those
who advertise for female bauds In facto
ries and for governesses in families have
proved themsolves unlit to be in any
place outside of bell. But there is an
other way, and I saw it one day in tho
Methodist Book Concern in New York,
where a young woman applied for work,
and the gentleman in tone and manner
said in substance: "My daughter, wo
employ women here, but I do not know
of any vacant place in our department.
You had better inquire at such and such
a place, aud I hope you will bo success
ful in .getting something to do. Here is
my name, and tell them I sent you."
The embarrassed and humiliated wo
man seemed to give way to Christian
confidence. She started out with a hope
ful look that I think must have won for
her u placo In which to earn nor bread.
I rather think that cousiderate aud
Christian gentleman saved a woman.
New York aud Brooklyngrouud up last
year about thii ty thousand young women
aud would like to grind up about as mauy
this year. Out of all that long proces
sion of women who ma ich ou with uo
hope for this world or the next, battered
and bruised aud scoffed at, and Hung off
the precipice, not ouo but might have
been saved for home and God and heav
en. Hut good men and good women aro
not in that kind of business. Alas for
thai poor thiugl Nothing but the thread
of that sowing girl's necdlo held her,
aud Iho thread broke.
I have heard mcu toll in public dis
course what u man Ib; but what is a wo
man? Until some one shall give a bet
ter definition, I will tell you what wo
man is. Direct from God, a sacred and
delicate, gilt, with alfectlons so great
that no meii. iriug line short of that of
the infinite God can tell their bound.
Fashioned to refine and soothe and lift
and Irradiate home aud society and the
world. .Of such value that uo one can
appreciate it, unless his mother lived
long enough to let him understand it, or
who in soiiio great crisis of life, when
all else tai.ed him, had a wife to re-cu
torce him with a faith iu God that noth
ing could disturb.
Speak out, ye cradles, and tell of the
feet that rocked you and tho anxious
faces that hovered over youl Speak
out, ye nurseries of all Christendom,
aud ye homes, whether desolate or still
in full bloom with the faces of wife,
mother a id daughter, and help mo to'
dcflno what woman is. But as geograph
ers tell us that tho depths of the sea cor
respond with the heights of the moun
tains I have to toll you that a good wo
manhood is not higher up khan bad wo
manhood is deep down. The grander
tho palace the more awful the coufiagra
tiou that destroys it. The grander the
steamer Orogon the more terrible her
gomg down just off the coast.
Now I should not wonder if you trem
bled a little with a sense of responsibil
ity when 1 say that thcro is hardly a
person in this house but may have an
opportunity to save a woman. It may
in your case be done by good advice, or
by financial help, or by trying to bring
to bear some one of a thousand Chris
tian influences. If, for instance, you
find a woman in financial distress and
breaking down in health and spirits try
ing to support her children, now that
her h.isbaud is dead or an invalid, doing
that very important and honorable work
?but which la llttl? appreciated?keep
iug a boarding house, where all tbe
guests, according as they pay small
board, or propose, without paying any
board at all, to decamp, aro critical of
everything and hard to please, busy
yourselves iu trying to get her more pa
trons, and tell her of divine sympathy.
Yea, If you see a woman favored of
forlu'ie and with all kindly surroundings
tindlug in the hollow flatteries of the
world her chief regalement, living for
herself ind for time as if there were no
eternity, strive to bring her into the
kingdom of God, as did the other day a
Sabbath school teacher, who was the
means of the conversion of the daughter
of a man of immense wealth, and the
daughter resolved to join the church,
and she went homo and said, "Father,
1 am going to join tho church, and I
wautyou to come." "Ob, uo," he said,
"I never go to church." "Well," said
the daughter, "it I wcro going to bo
married would you not go to see me
married?" And he said, "Oh, yes."
"Well," said she, "this is of more im
portance than that."
So he weut and has gono ever since,
and loves to go. I do not know but that
faithful Sabbath school teacher not only
saved a woman, but saved a man. There,
may be iu this audience, gathered from
all parts of the world, there may bo a
man whose behavior toward vornan hood
has been perfidious. Kepentl Stand
up, thou master-piece of sin and death,
that I may charge you! As far as pos
sible make reparation. Do not boast
that you have her in your power aud that
shu cannot help herself. When that
lino collar and cravat, and that elegant
suit of clothes comes olf and your un
covered soul stands before God, you
will be better off if you save that wo
you may save a child.
There is another exploit you can do,
and that is to save a child. A child
does not seem to amount to much. It
is nearly a year old before it can walk
at all. For the first year and a half it
caunot speak a word. For the first ten
years it would starve if it had to earn its
owu food. For the first llftccn years its
opinion ou any subject is absolutely
valueless. And then'there are so many
ot them. My, what lots of children!
And some people have contempt for
children. They aro gootl for nothing
but to wear out the carpets and break
things and keep you awake nights cry
Well, your estimate of a child is qul*0
ditlbrcnt from that mother's estimate
Who lost her child this summer. They
took it to the salt air ot the seashore and
to the tonic air of the mountains, but no
he p came, and the brief paragraph of
its life is ended. Supposs that life could
be restored by purchase, how much
would that bereaved mother give? She
would take all the Jewels Irom her fin
gers and neck' and bureau and put them
down. And if told that that was not
enough she would take her house and
make over the deed for It, and it that
were not enough she would call in all
her investments and put down all her
mortgagee and bonds, and it told that
were not enough she would say: "I have
made over all ray property, and d I can
have that child back I will now pledge
that I will toll with my own hands and
carry with my own shoulders In any kind
of hard work and live in a cellar and die
in a garret. Only give me back that
I am ?lad that there are those who
know something of a value of a child.
Its possibilities are tremendous. What
will those hands yet do? Where will
those leet yet walk? Toward what
dtsttny will that never dying soul betake
itself? Shall those lips be the throno of
blasphemy or benediction? Come,
chronologiftls, and calculate the decades
on decades, tho centuries ou centuries,
of its lifetime. Oh, to save a child! Am
I not right in putting that among tho
But what are you going to do with
those children who arc worso ot than if
their father and mother had died tho day
thoy wore born? Thero are tens of thous
ands of such. Their parcutage was
agaui8t them. Their name is against
them. Tho structure of their skulls is
against them. Their nerves and mus
cles contamiuatid by tho inebriety or
dissoluteness of their parouts; they arc
practically at their birth laid out on a
plank in the middle of tho Atlantic
ocean, in an equiuoctial gale, and told to
make for shore. What to do with t iem
is the questiou ofieu asked.
There is another question quite as
pertiuent, and that is. What are they
going to do with usv They will, teu or
eleven years from now, have ns many
votes a9 the same number of well born
children, aud they will baud this land
over to ?narchy and political damnation
just as sure as wc neglect them. Sup
pose wo each one of us save a boy or
save a girl. You eau do it. Will y->u?
KNOW GOD AND be STRONG.
How shall we get ready for one or all
of these thrco exploits? We shall mako
a dead'failure if in .our own strength
wo try to save a tnau or woman
or child. But my text suggests where
wo aro U, get equipment. "The people
that do know their (Jod scull bo strong
aud do exploits." Wc must know him
through Jesus Christ in our own salva
tion, aud then we shall have his help in
the salvation of others. And while you
are saving strangers y ou may save some
of your ovn kin. You think your broth
ers and sisters and children aud grand*
children nil safe, but thev aro not dead,
and no ono is safe till ho is dead. Ou
the English coast there was a wild storm
aud a wreck in the olliing, and tho cry
was: "Man the lifeboat!'' But Harry,
the usual leader of the sailor's crew,
was not to be found, and they went
without him, and brought back all the
shipwrecked people but ono.
liy this time Harry, tho leader ol the.
crew, appeared and said, "Why did you
leave that one?" Tho answer was,
"Ilo could not help himself nt all, and
wo could not get him into the boat."
'?Man the lifeboat!" shouted Harry,
"and we will go tor that one." "No,"
said his aged mother, standing by, "you
must not go. 1 lost your lather in a
storm like this, aud your brother Will
went off six years ugo. and I have not
heard a word from Will since, ho left,
and I don't know where hois, poor Will,
and I cannot let you also go, for I am
old and dependent on you." His reply
was, "Mother, I must go and save that
one man, and if I am lost God will take
caro of you in your old days."
The lifeboat put out, and after an aw
ful struggle with the sea they picked the
poor fellow out of the rigging just in time
to save his life, and started for the shore.
And as they came within speaking dis
tance, Harry cried out, "We saved him,
and tell mother it was brother Will. '
Oh, yes, my friends, let us Start out to
save somo one for time and for eternity,
some man, somo woman, somo child.
And who knows but it may,directly or in
directly, be tho salvation of one o! our
own kindred, and that will be an exploit
worthy of celebration when the world
itself is shipwrecked, and the sun has
gono out like a spark from a smitten an
vil, and all the stars aro dead!
A Walking Barroom.
Ham unto, Conn., Aug. 27.?The
Prohibitionists of this region are wild
over a discovery that they have for years
been hoodwinked by an eccentric indi
vidual whom they supposed was simon
pure in his devotion to their principles.
The death, of this Individual, whose
name was Kildeer Huff, opened the eyes
o' tho Prohibitionists. Huff came to
this place several years ago. He was
a strange person, who lived ulonc in a
rudo hut ou Potato Hill. Ho pretended
to be deaf mid dumb, but boy s who havo
tantalized him suy that Huff could swear
very fluently. Iu addition, he was
humpbacked, aud on account of bis de
formity he was an object of pity to the
townspeople, none ol whom know Where
he came from.
Lnst Friday Hull* wus fouud dead by
the roadside near his hut on Potato
Hill. Tho villagers wore surprised to
find that he wus not a humpback. Tho
d e lorn tit y proved to be a padded sack,
itiside of which was tound a dozen pint
bottles, containing rum, whiskey and
cordial, nnd in his pocket was found
$197, mostly in dimes aud nickles. the
regulation barroom change. The hump
back has been n walking barroom, und
the mystery of how he supported him
self is solved. Tho town is a no-license
place, nnd the Prohibitionists have Hal
tered themselves that here, nt least, no
drinking was done. It Is remembered
that. Hull'used to prowl around lalo at
night, during which time ho visited the
houses of those who love an occasional
nip, and either void them a pint, bottle,
or elso a drink, lor which ho charged
only 5 cents.

Danvii.lb, Va., August 20.?A po
litical circular recently issued by Gen

newspaper man here to-day. The cir
cular begins by saying that under the
present election law in Virginia a fair

sudden that it was impossible for the
occupants of the two big buildings at
70 ami 72 Patk&'lace to escape from the
buildings before tho collapse was com
plete. There was but one eyewitness to
tho accident, A. A. Johnson, janitor in
tho building at 81 Park Place, across tho
street from where the accident occurr
ed. Uo said that be was standing ou the
stops to 81 when ho heard tho sound ot
an explosion. It came from across the
street. It was not loud. Almost im
mediately the front wall of the two
buildings collapsed and tho entire build
ing caved in wi?h a deafening crash. It
came so suddenly that it was impossible
for a living soul to escape from the
buildings. On tho ground tloor of one
of the numbers was a restaurant that
was crowded with people. I'ho other
Moors were occupied by a metal plate
factory; the Southern Publishing com
pany; S. Lout el ?Je Co., art designers
Ellis <fc McDonald, bookbinders, aud
Michael Carroll, who was employed in
tho metal leaf factory, had been out to
lunch and had just readied the door of
72 when he heard the explosion, which
dazed him for a moment. He jumped
up and ran for life. As ho got- away
the front walls of 70 and 72 toppled ov
er with a loud crash. As the walls fell
Carroll saw many people passing the
place were covered Uudsr the brick and

of peoplo were at lunch the number
being estimated at between twenty-live

twelve girls in the washroom in the

tho building also had a largo number of
employees. Three children ol Prank

the street at the time I.toundsman Tay

along l'ai k Place, when he heard" the ex
plosion. He ran to the scene and realiz
ing that something must be done, ran to
a hardware si ore on Vosey street, secur
ed a dozen axes and distributed them to
the firemen who had already arrived.
The firemen and bystanders soon cut a
hole in the side, wall of 71, out of which
seventeen persons crawled, all of whom
boro bruises. The testimony of all the
people who were in the neighborhood at
tho time is that they were first startled
by a deep rumbling sound of an explo
sion, which was directly followed by the
collapse of the building, Hie wall of
which fell outward with a frightful
crash. Three alarms of lire were fol
lowed by tho arrival of the ambulances
from all the hospitals. The reserves
were called out from nearly all station
houses, but t he greatest difficulty was
experienced in keeping the thousands
ol peoplo back beyond the lire lines

been a tearful lossot life.

which lias occupied tho attention of tho
Probate Court lor ninny months.
Tho pretty woman who did the raw
hiding was Mrs. Ed McMahon, whose
husband had been charged with attempt
ing to poison his own child and whose
mother-'.n-law has been endeavoring to
get possession of the child on this charge.
The lawyer who was raw'uded is Patrick
Mcllugh, a well-known lawyer, who
was not long ngo a candidate for the

torney Hyncsin behalf of the mother In
law in the case.
Judge llohlsunt was unmoved. Ho
simply had tho belligerents removed and
refused tho application of indignant At
torney Ilynes to impose a penalty for
contempt of court.
Hut not only did Mrs. McMahon horse
whip and her husband pound tho lawyer,
she also severely slushed an olliccr of
the State, Peter Smith, the guardian ol
the child ou behalf of tho State.
The whipping occurred about 11
o'clock todav, and was not wholly un
expected. Yesterday, when Attorney
Hollugh had read an affidavit taken in
Canada, in which Mrs. McMahon was
charged with beim; a woman of bad repu

that lady arose in court and siiouled
with Hashing eyes and trembling lips
that the allegation was outrageous and

was at the lawyer's side.
A moment later a black rawhide. w;is

wells on tho lace and neck ot Attorney
Mcllugh. The lawyer dropped his
brief and rushed to the corner of the
court room on the left of the judge. The

taken a hand In the. affair. When his

A conference was then held whether
i he barn should bo burned or an attempt

COIATMUIA, S. C, Aug. 22.?The long
awaited assessmonts of tho railroads of
the State, about which so much has
been said, and against which tho rail
roads made such a light, have at last
been passed upon finally by the Stnto
board of equalization of railroads, and
yesterday they were at last inado public.
Only the bare assessments por mile are
given, and no compilations or compar
isons announced! Therefore it is im
possible to give tho exact amount of
the raise, but by a careful confutation
from the data given, it is found that
the raise will amount to scarcely less
than .521,000,000. and may bo a couple
of millions higher. This year there is
a much larger number of miles of road
being operated in the State, and tho to
tal raise is in somo measure duo to that,
but the actual raise por mile is very
large. Tho total valuation of property
for each road was not given out by the
comptroller, ami consequently cannot
bo compared with the ligures of last
year. Thi n again several roads, name
ly: The Augusta and Kuoxville,
Greenville and Laurens, (Jreenvillo,

Valley, Carolina, Kuoxville and Wes

lumbia do not appear on this year's re
ports at all as such roads, for they havo
been absorbed by others under one
The raise, however, ii so great as to
cause a general belief that tho railroads,
especially the big ones will make a light
before paying such taxes and carry the
matter Into the courts.
