COLUMBIA, June 1.-The railroad
meetings here to-day have been of
the most wca-isome ch^racter. This
morning at 11 o'clock the directors
of the Georgia and Carolina Midland
assembled in a room in Wr;s Ho
tel to consider the .rticles of con
solidation with the Three C's, of

manager. As stated yesterday there
was no opposition to the consolida
tion- on this side of the Savannah.
For six hours the directors remained
closeted. They could come to no
Major Ga-y and President Mitch
ell, of Augusta, were opposed to the
consolidation, because the Three C's
made no promises as to when and
how the road would be built. They
considered it unwise to consolidate
upon the terms offered by the Three
C's and spoke at length upon this
Col. Johnson made a short state
ment to the body, and said that they
would certainly be able to complete
the Georgia and Carolina Road in
three years, but hoped to be able to
do. so within e'ghteen months. For
certain reasons it would be injurious
to his road to give a bond to com
plete the Georgia and Carolina with
in a certain period. At 5 o'cock
tt- directors took a recess until 6.
The directors and stockholders
from Edgefield and Newberry had
confidence in Senator Butler, who is
one of the directors of Three C's,
and be had advised some of them to
accept the terms offered.
At 6 o'clock the directors again
met, and this time a conclusion was
reached. The articles of agreement
was signed by all the directors ex
cept Major W. T. Gary. It is un
derstood that at the morning session
there was some complication about
the salaries claimed by the president
a tonev, but a compromise is
said to have-been effected:
At 8 o'clock the stockholders who
had been waitirg all day for their
turn, assembled in Wright's Hotel.
Thirty odd stockholders were pres
ent, who represented about eight
thousand shares. The meeting was
presided over by President R. M.
Mitchell, Mr. George Adam acting as
secretary. After much preliminary
and unimpor'ant action the articles
of consolidation were read. The

Earthquake in Columbia.
~Special to the Xezes and Courier.
CoLtMBu, June 3.-At a quarter
to 9 o'clock this morning, Columbia
was visited by the first eartl'quake
shock which has been felt here for
sevg ral nio.aths. The vibrations were
not' severe, but lasted fully 20 sec

coaing them to rattle freely.
Dissatisfaction in Augusta on Account N
of the Consolidation.
Augusta Chronicle, June 4.
There is no little dissatisfaction
about the railroad consolidation made
in Columbia the other day, and the
local prophet who once said -it is f
written that in a year Augusta will r
be linked with F.dgefield by a direct t
rail line," withdraws the prediction
and now contents himself with look. t
ing on and watching events.
The terms of consolidation are
much to the advantage of the C., C. & f
C. it appears. The Georgia and
Carolina Midland, better known in
Augusta as the Augusta, Edgefield t
and Newberry, surrenders its fran.
chise, and the Three C.'s promise ot
build the line projected for this pro- I
posed line out of Augusta. But can
they do and will they do it? Their
promise is the only assurance given.
Of course, it is their intention now to
construct the road, but obstacles may
spring up at any time, and they for
teit nothing if they find themselves
in position not to be able to con
struct the road-that is, there is no
By the consolidation of the Three -I
C.'s get 65 miles of graded road out
from Black's and i ugusta, $63,400
of township bonds, Y150,000 of town
ship bonds conditional on certain
grading being done, and S7,000 of
cash subscriptions, and in return en
gage to pay the outstanding indebt- E
edness of the Georgia and Carolina
The idea was advanced in the Co
lumbia meeting that Augusta was in
different as to this road, which alle
gation was promptly denied and re- t
futed by gol. Mitchell and Major t
Gary, who strongly argued against 1
consolidation. Augusta does want t
the road, and has interested herself 1
in it, and the idea that we care no
thing about it is fallacious. It has I
been our hope to have direct rail con- i
nection with these thrifty Carolina
counties through which the proposed
road is to run. The only guarantee
we now have, is the moral promise of
the Three C.'s to construct the line.
This they will do if they can. Let
it be hoped that they can and will.
By some it is stated that the effort
pf the _consolidation will be to kill
the building of a line from here to
Col. Butler, however, has given as
surance that the road will be built,
and this is a strong card in its favor.
A CARD FRO3I PRESIDENT 3IITCHIELL.
From the Augusta C'hronicle, June 41.
In to-day's*issue your reporter has
unintentionally, doubtless, mistaken
my position as to the merger and
consolidation of the Georgia and
Carolina Midland with the Charles
ton, Cincinnati and Chicago Railroad
company. Instead of opposing the
consolidation, I favored it. Two
months ago I opened correspondence
with the authorities of that road and
afterwards met them by appointment
in New York, and, while I did not
oppose the consolidation, I advised
our directors to require a guarantee
that the Georgia and Carolina Mid
land would be built in a ct.rtain pe
riod. The last paragraph of my re
port to the Board is as follows:
"This report is not written to defeat
the consolidation of the companies.
But the president has conceived it
is his duty to the stockholders to en
deaver to induce a majority ol this
Board to require guarantees that the
road shall be built. He suggests
that if you will determine to recom
mend consolidation with the Charles
ton, Cincinnati and Ghicago Railroad
Company, that you require that cor
poration to give bond with ample per
sonal surety to five citizens to be se
lected by you that your road shall
be completed from Ha nbarg to New
berry in eighteen months, and a sim
ilar bond to build to Black's in
eighteen months more. Do this in
justice to the sections you represent,
and the Directory will, in some meas
ure, have performed its duty."

House of Representatives stands:
Democrats, 168; Republicans, 151,

contingencies against the Democrary,
there still remains a good working
majority to sustain the party of the
administration. The narrowness of
the control enforces the necessity of
thorough De!rocratic acco'd on all

First of all there must be unity on
the fiscal and revenue questions.

OLCANO IN THE SIERRA MADRE

at Tombstone Arizona.
To-nsToxE, ArIZoNA, June 2.
enor Campa, who has just arrived
rom Nacosari, states that authentic
ews has reached Oposura that at the
me of the first earthquake a volcano
roke out on the Chibuahua side of
he Sierra Madre Mountains, near
'iedras Verdes, about thirty miles
rest of Casas Grandes. Differeiit
arties, numbering thirty persons in
11, have gone from Casas Grandes
o inspect the volcano, but owing to
he inter.se heat they have been un
.ble to approach nearer than within
bree miles of the mass of molten
ava, which pours down the mountain
ide, and which is estimated to ex
end fully ten miles from the crater
f the volcano. Volumes of smoke
y day and the glare by night from
he burning mofntsin are visible for
long distAnce. Governor Torres,
f Sonora, has directed that a party
e sent from Oposura to inspect and
eport upon the phenomenon.
A slight shock of earthquake was
elt here on Monday and another at

olunhia's Way of Building a Cotton
Special to News and Courier,
CoLtUBIA, June 3.-The proposed
stablishment of a cotton mill in
olumbia is heartily endorsed by
very one in the city who has been
poken to on the subject, but the
.olumbia people are hard to move
nd it requires considerable pressure
o make them put their hands into
heir pockets. Quite a number of
)usiness men are willing to take from
en to fifty shares after the will is
>uilt, the machinery put up and a
lividend of 10 per cent. is being
nade. This is not the kind of spirit
,bat will build the mill, but it is the
;ort which will keep the city at a
;tandstill. The establishment of this
nill is the idea of Mr. 'Geo. K.
Wright, and he will do all that
>ne man can do to get enough money
subscribed; but he cannot be ex
)ected to accomplish the work alone.
I'o raise such a subscription in Col
imbia is a large undertaking, and
an only be achieved by the co-ope
-ation of every one who is Interested
n the progress of the city.
Mr. Wright is confident that this
nterprise will be a success if proper
y managed, and to have a mill so
nanaged he believes that a man's war
ecord or high family connections
should not be considered in connec
zion with its superintendency. Sev
?ral failures in Columbia and in the
State in recent years can be well at
tributed to bad management.
The Glenn Springs Railroad.
eSpcial to the News and Courier.
SPARTnsnUno, June 1.-The di
rectors of the Glenn Springs Rail.
road Company met yesterday at
Glenn Springs. There were present :

shall Smith, WV. F. Smith, Harry
S:mnpson, Charles Zimmerman, S. T.
D. Lancaster, George D. Smith and
RI. Z. Cates.
Trhe report of Engineer Ellis was
before them. The main question
was to decide as to the two routes
p)roposed. One of these leads out
from Glenn's by West Spring,s
through Bogansville and Cross Keys
townships, in Union County; the
other bears to the south at Glenn's
and goes down through Cross An
chor township, in this county. After
considering the report of the engin
eer the directors selected the first
route, although their individual pre
ferences would have been in favor of
the other, as that would have given
us twelve or fourteen miles more of
road in this county than will be se
cured by the route selected. The
West Springs line is wo miles short
er, and it has an advantage of nearly
twenty thousand dollars in subscrip.

Ex-Confederates as Judges.
New York SSar. S
Some very silly Republican jour.
nals in the rural districts have been
raising the cry against "the ap
pointment of an ex-Confederate to
the Supreme Court." It is not, how
ever, the Confederate record of law
yers that is objectionable to these
critics. Their - real complaint is
against the Democracy of candidates.
Republican Presidents have wisely
disregarded this "rebel yell." We
have on the benoh of the United
States courts, in the Western dis
tricts of Louisiana, Judge Boarman; r
in the Western district of North I
Carolina, Judge Dick; in th.e West- '
ern district of Florida, Judge Settle; a
in the Southern district of Georgia, ~
Judge Spear; in the Eastern and Mid
dle districts of Tennessee, Judge I
Key, and in the Western district of ~
the same State, Judge Hammond, all I
of whom were Confederate soldiers. C
It is too late for any one to raise i
the objection of service in the Con- C
federate army against a proposed
United States appointment. In all<
branches of the federal service<
Southerners who took part with their
section in the war are doing loyal
and excellent work. It has been so
since Lincoln's time, and it is as
tonishing that partisanship should at<
this late day bind men so completely
as to permit them to assume a posi
tion so utterly ridiculous.

CoLUMBIA, June 2.-Many thou- ,
Lnd Carolinians have doubtless t
ondered before now why Columbia, t

anal, did not apply herself as
reenville and other cities have done
immediate work in the establish
ent of factories. Because we will
ve a superb water power when it
developed, we need not make up
ir mind to do nothing until the ca
il is completed. There are not
eking persons, even here, who think a
at the canal has been a curse to
e city, and that but for its prospect
e and long postponed completion,
e would now have several fine steam 1
ills :n Columbia. We have ad- 8
urned every large factory project
atil the water power could, be ob

ve built and snccessfully operated
