Just What's Needed
Exclaim* thousands of people
who have taken Hood's Sarsapar
ilia at this season of tho year, and
who have noted tho success of the
medicine in giving them relief
from that tired feeling, waning ap
petite andjrstate of oxtreme ex
haustion filer the close confine
ment of a long winter season, the
busy time attendant upon a largo
and pressing business during the
spring months and with vacation
time yet some weeks distant. It
is then that the. building-up-pow
ers of Hood's Sarsaparilla are fully
appreciated. It seems perfectly
adapted to overcome that prostra
tion caused by change of season,
climate or life, and while it tones
and sustains the system, it purifies
and vitalizes the blood.
Clinton and Laurens are now
connected by telephone, but the

ten delays and even hinders the
sending at all, in due season, a mes
sage of more or less importance.?
And theso are in most every in
stance individuals having no phone
subscriptions to pay. We merely
hint at the real facts in the case.?

THE OLD BAY LINE.
Us Position Intended by President B. Cur
Southern Railway'** Plana.
It seems that the Southern Railway is
determined to monopolise the sea as well
as land. In discussing the establishment
of steamboat line between Baltimore and
Norfork by the Southern Railway Mr. R.
Cur zun Hoffman, president of the Balti
more Steam Packet Company, said yes
"The Haitimoro Steam Packet Com
pany, more generally known as the Bay
Line, was organized in 1839, and for more
than fifty years has transacted the bulk
of the transportation buisnesB between
the ports of Baltimore and Norfolk and
Portsmouth. It has largely contributed
to the prosperous growth of those cities.
It has created, stimulated and sustained
favorable traffic conditions and relations.
Year after year it has augmented the
volume of commercial transactions to and
from all parts of the world. Its capaci
ties for accommodating trade and travel
have been enlarged to fully meet the
general demand. Its vessels?safe, com
modious, seaworthy and swift?are in
comparably superior to those on any
other inland sea. Every invention or
appliance that adds to luxurious com
fort or enhances human safety and en
joyment has beon adopted regardless of
coBt. Its dealings with connecting lines
and the public have exemplified board
and liberal policies?in complete accord
with the spirit of'that. injunction, 'Do un
to others as you would have thorn do to
you.' During the long period of its exis
ts n c e the Bay Line has experienced
various vicissitudes of fortune. It has
had its good seasons, its discouraging re
verses. Over-coming all obnticles it has
steadily pursued its onward course, in
spired by unwavering confidence in it
self and tho favor of tho public, whose
allegiance has never faltered. The proud
position it now occupies in the commer
cial and financial world is the logical
outcome of a career without blame or
"Its thousands of patrons, knowing that
its utmost efforts have been loyally ex
pended in their behalf, have come t o
chorish for tho Bay Line a feeling akin
to greatful affection. They are proud of
it; they sympathize in its misfortunes,
exult in its success. Its well-earned
popularity rests on the friendly co-oper
t ion and good-will of all with whom it
holds or has held personal or buisness
relations. Nor is the olientage of this
favorite lino limited to the cities most
directly concerned, to which it has ren
dered more than half a century ot faith
ful services. 11 includes hundreds o f
great firms in shipping communities
and trade centres in all sections of the
country, North and South.
"The aim and object of the Southern
Railroad in the establishing a new and
uncalled for line of steamers between
Baltimore and Norfolk is to compete with
the Bay Line in its own field for ail kinds
of business, invado its sources of supply,
reduce its rovonuos, cut into its profits,
cripplo its efficiency as a public carrier,
disrupt its friendly alliances and inflict
on it all the injury it can. Unable to
purchase a controlling interests, it will
not hesitate to resort to any of those
questionable methods in which practice
has made it so export to depreciate the
value of stocks, to force a sale or drive its
opponents altogether from the field. It
ha? doubtless counted the cost, but con
siders that to bo a matter of minor con
sequence, as the Southern is backed by
a syndicate who have millions at their
disposal and who would not hesitate to
sacrifice much to gain a strategic point.
They already own and operate thous
ands of miles away in the middle and
Eastern South and can dictate pretty
much what rates they choose. But they
will be still better able to do so when
they have secured an outlet exclusively
their own via Norfolk to Baltimore.
Then they will be masters of the situa
tion ; then they can defeat opposition and
stille independent action.
"The legitimate traffic betweon the
two cities of Baltimore and Norfolk hard
ly suffice for tho bay steamers and does
not warrant tho construction and main
tenance of an opposing lino. The South
ern Railroad is well aware of this fact,
although it pretends to the contrary. It
knows that the Bay Lino is amply com
petent to handle any additional busi
ness that might accrue to the Southorn
at its Norfolk torminal. It knows that
when I offered to do this, guaranteeing
tho same facilities accorded to other
lines, it refused to accept tho proposal
on the pretext that tho Bay Lino was
too closely identified with the Seaboard
Air Line, although it is independent of
that or any other connection. The South
ern alike refused to avail itself of tho
Eroffored service of the Merchants and
liner's fleet running a daily line be
tween Baltimore, Norfolk and Ports
month, and which is the Southern Rail
way's accepted connection on all of its
business coming via wator betweon Bos
ton, Norfolk and Portsmouth, and which
line is owned and operated by wholly
"The inference and conclusion is irre
sistible. Tho Southern cannot rule tho
Chesapeake and monopolize the traffic
between Baltimore and Norfolk without
first driving tho Bay Line from the field,
or inflicting on it mortal injury. The
Southorn to its York River Lines already
has a shorter water route by forty-two
miles to Baltimore, but this is not
sufficient and does not deter it
from assaulting the vented rights of a
long-established line. It will endeav
or to secure whatever ulterior advan
tages it ean gain in this direction whethor
by fair means or foul.
"So far as the Southorn is concerned,
an official correspondent and represen
tative of that corDoration, characterizes
its policy, past, present and future, in
t these words: 'Wo cauuot do any busi
ness over any line not owned or control
led by ourselves.' This was said in re
ply to the Bay Line and Merchants and
Miners' proposition to carryktheir traffic.
It goes without saying that with a desire
to protect the interests of Btocklioldors
and those of associated and friendly
lines, as well as many other vast and va
ried business interested, I havo resorted
to every honorablo expedient to avert
the disastrous consequences I foresaw
would result from tho action of the
Southern. I deplored it as au unfortn
nato move, involviug serious complica
tions. The efforts made by me in both
a personal and official capacity to main
tain tho status quo and preserve peace
and harmony havo been without avail.
The olive branch that I have timo and
again extended has been as ofton refus
ed. In viow of all those facts and others
the conclusion is inevitable that the in
truder upon our domain intond by sys
tematic attacks upon the Bay Lino to
demoralize its revenue and inflict Oil it
all the injury poBsiblo to break it down
or drivo it from tho aea. Such a result
would prove not less disastrous to the
public than to ovory railway and Bteam
ship line doing husinoRS with it.
"Tho Southern in forcing this fight
must bo bold sololv responsible for tho
dislocation and disruption of business
relations tho accrimonious warfare and
demoralization of rates that sooner or
lator must ensue, The Bay Lino cannot
supinely fold its hands and acquiesce in
the destruction of its property, the en*
stragomentof its business, the diversion
of Us traffic and the deterioration of its
stock. Self-preservation is the first law
of nature, and public opinion North and
South will vigorously uphold us in ro
sorting to all legitimate and honorable
means to protect our property rights and
those jntrusted to our care.?Baltimore
