Fastest time seems to be the motto of
the day in railroad circles of the New
South, and the Richmond and Danville,
it appears, has reached the climax. Since
January, 1891, that company has been
operating three (3) through passenger
trains between New York, Atlanta and
New Orleans, one of these being the justly
celebrated "Washington and Southwest
ern Vestlbuled Limited," making the run
from New York to Atlanta, Ga , a dis
tance by its line of 91a, miles in 23 hours,
or an average of about forty miles per
hour. The great New York and Chica
go Limited of the Pennsylvania K. R.
makes the run from New York to Chica?
go, a distance by its rails of 876, in 2i
hours: thus you sec "The Greatest
Southern System" (the. R. & D.) is giv
ing the "New South" a service that is
equel to that of the "Standard Railroad
of America" (the Pennsylvania lt. R. ).
These fast mall trains make the run
from Washington to Atlanta, southbound
in eighteen hours and fifty minutes,
while the corresponding northbound
train, No. 36, leaves Atlanta, at 7130 P.
M ,arrives in Washinuton 2.55 P. M.
following day, making close connection
for Baltimore, Philadelchia, New York
and Boston, arriving in Baltimore 4.17
P. M. Philadelphia 6.40 P. M. New
York 9.10 P.M. next day and Boston
7.30 A. M. Time to Washington nine
teen hours and twentyfive minutes, and
to Nfiw York twenty-five hours.
The fast time, splendid equipment and
magnificent service of the R. & D. is
greatly appreciated by the traveling
public, as is manifested daily by their
very large and constantly increasing
The management of the company is in
structed to employ men of intelligence
and high character?broad and liberal in
their view, "strictly business" in their
methods and rules of conduct, just and
resonable toward all patrons, showing
no favoritism, making no promises to be
broken, guarnntceing nothing they can
not accomplish. Such a system, with
such a management, is justly the pride
of the people it serves and the section
through which it passes. The influence
of its progressive policy has become
contagious on every mile of its great
system and has acted as n stimulating
impulse to the energies of the people
in every State it touches with the magnet
ic power, from Washington on the Po
tomac, to it8 western terminus, Green
ville, on the Mississippi River.- -The
