WEDNESDAY, APRIL e, 1692
The New Bailroad to the
North.
The corporators of the Norfolk,
Wilmington and Charleston Railroad
Company held a meeting in the
'Charleston Hotel on March 26th and
opened the books of subscription to
the company's capital stock. One
'hundred thousand dollars was sub
scribed and paid in, after which the
stockholders elected the following
board of directors : Mr. ?. A. Gaddis,
Col. li. E Young, Capt Thomas
Pinckney, Gen. A. Iluguenin, Mr.
R. Duncan Harris, of New York,
Messrs J C. McNaughton aud J. W.
Botler? of Philadelphia, Mr. Kirby 3.
upper, of Charleston, and Col J.
G. Gibbee, of Columbia,
Immediately upon their election
the directors met and elected the
following officers for the company :
President, Mr. A. A. Gaddis; vice
president, Col. II. ?. Young ; secre
tary and treasurer, Mr. Kirby S.
Topper At the meeting of the cor
porators $100,000 was subscribed to
the capital stock of the company, and
it is proposed to increase that amount
to Il#,ti00,000.
The company formed yesterday will
be consolidated ultimately with com
panies of the same name which have
already been organized m North
Carolina and Virginia, thus forming a
grand through trunk line from New
York via Norfolk to Charleston and
Columbia The Norfolk, Wilmington
and Charleston Railroad has secured
liberal charters iu the States of Vir
ginia, North Carolina and South
Carolina, enabling it to unite with
other roads, and also to operate
steamboat lines and ferries. The
road, when completed, will form the
shortest possible practical line be
tween New York and Charleston.
The survey for the road between
Charleston and Norfolk was only
completed a few days ago, when the
engineer corps from the north and
.somth met at Georgetown. The en
<?re?coButry along the proposed route
*if lie road has been uno er a thorough
and exhaustive examination during
the past two years, and the survey,
which ?* most complete in every de
tail, oc .pied the engineers of the
company for eight months. The
route, as surveyed and determined
upon by the company, runs out of
Norfolk and, taking a southwesterly
course, passes through Wailaceton,
Virginia, Yardley, North Carolina,
crosses Chowau Creek at Coleraine
continues through Wilson, Pactolus;
Dover, Pink Iliil and? Pender to the
Sooth Carolina line. Crossing the
boundary between North and South
Carolina in the northwest corner of
Little River Township, it runs a
short distance east to Buck ville,
?henee in South Carolina iu the
direction of Port Harrellson, crossing
. the Pee Dee River above its con
ifioence with Bull Creek, continuing
southward on t* west side of the
Georgetown aud Yawhannah Ferry
i:Road, crossing Black River about
one-half mile w?st of Pringle's Ferry,
aS?o? thence by way of Georgetown,
thence southward, crossing the
Sampit River aud the North and
; South S .-mee at the ilopeweii planta
tion, and thence through St. James
Santee and Christ Church parishes,
?Berkeley County, terminating on the
-north aide oi the Charleston harbor
between the mouth of Shem Creek
find the Wando River.
The company is desirous of secu
ring an entrance into the City of
Charleston, where they propose offer
ing a fine passenger and freight ter
minus, which will prove of inestima
ble advantage to this city. They are
-confident that they will have no
trouble in securing the hearty co-op
eration of the people of Charleston,
who have already shown marked in
terest and sympathy with the great
enterprise.
The company also contemplates
constructing an important line from
Johnson's Mille, in Pitt County,
C, to Colombia, a distance of 245
miles, running through Darlington
.end C?Jttden, where it will connect
*wi?b the Charleston, Cincinnati aud
-Chicago Railroad, thence to Colum
bia, aud connecting there with the
&iehmond and West Point Terminal
-evetem, and through it with all lines
of railroad throughout Georgia, Ala
bama and Mississippi.
The country through which the
road will run is not fully developed
and has long stood in urgent need of
such through connections as will be
afforded by the Norfolk, Wilmington
and -Cliarleston. The country from
Charleston harbor north to the Cape
Fear River, for variety and extent of
resources, for fertility of soil and
productive capacity, as regards both
quality and quantity, for its cotton,
variety of fruit and vegetables, and
f??r its healthful and agreeable, cli
matic condition?, is a region unsur
passed by any other three thousand
square miles of territory in the Uni
ted States. Millions of acres of the
finest forest of afl kinds of timber
wHi be tributary to the road, and the
trade on the several thousands of
miles of river navigation will seek
rail transportation at every point
which the Norfolk, Wilmington and
Charleston touches on several impor
tant streams This is, iu brief, a
sketch of the road whose officers
were elected at the Charleston Hotel
yesterday.
At Norfolk the Norfolk, Wilming
ton and Charleston will connect with
the New York, Pennsylvania and
Norfolk Road, which has long been
iu successful operation, thus furnish
ing a great air line route between
New York and points North and
Charleston and other points South
The road -is-backed by men who
enjoy a national reputation in railroad
circles, among whom may he men
tioned Mr. J. C. McNaughton, a di
rector, who is bow president of the
Norfolk, Wilmington and Charleston
in North Carolina ; Mr. R. Duncan
Harris, of New York, treasurer of
the same road, and Mr. A. A Gaddis,
who is known throughout America as
a raitattad projector and builder.
The geutleman the company has se
lected for the general manager of its
lia e is Mr. Chambers H. j&cK&biu,
a young m au of marked talent and
wide railroad experience He has
been connected with the Pennsylva
nia Railroad and has held important
positene on the Union Pacific.
The Norfolk, Wilmington and
! Charleston Road is no longer a plan.
! It is now practically a reality, for the
contract has already been made with
a construction company for the build
ing of the entire line.
In connection with the Norfolk,
Wilmington and Charleston Railroad
Company there has been chartered,
and will soon be organized, tbe Caro
lina Land Company The latter com
pany will co operate with the former
in buying immense tracts of land
along the railroad's route for the par
pose of developing them.?News &

Story of a Strong Man.
Louis Cyr, who is a British subject,
was born in St JohnQuebec in 1863,
and is consequsntly 2S years of age.
His grandfather, on the maternal side,
weighed over twenty-three stone*, whilst
his mother's weight is only a trifle under
nineteen stone. She is immensely
strong, and only a few years ago was
able to pick up a barrel of flour and
carry it op two flights of steps. So far
as his mother's side goes, therefore, he
comes from a pretty sturdy stock.
His father's family were not quite so
colossal, though fairly big men and
women. His father, however, briogs
down the scale at sixteen stone.
It was only natural that Master Cyr
when at school was master of all the lads.
At the age of 14 there were very few
men who could cope with him, and at
that age his muscular development was
extraordinary.
His parents were living at Montreal
when he left school, and the question
was, what should they make of this
young Hercules? Well, ultimately it was
decided that he should enter the police
service.
He was about 17 at the time and his
strength had increased in a marvelous
manner. He soon showed what a valua
ble acquisition he was to the force. He
was sent to do doty in the roughest and
most disturbed district of Montreal. He
made so many captures and quelled such
a number of disturbances that he soon
received substantial recognition from
the authorities. He was paid double
salary and used to do the work of three.
Naturally be was not very popular
amongst the roughs. So they made up
their miuds so settle him. Accordingly
six or seven picked men waited upon
him one dark night and vent for him
with sticks and belts. lie was fright
fully cut about, and can show you the
scars of the wounds he received about
the forehead now.
It must have been a desperate fight
hut in tbe end his pluok and superior
strength were too much for the cowards.
Three out of the six made their escape
more or less hart. One of tbe others
he had picked up and dashed upon the
ground, rendering him senseless: Tbe
other two he nipped round the waist un
til they screamed in agony.
He was just sraking off with the two
he had captured, when he compassion
ately thought of the poor injured fellow
on the ground. He therefore changed
over his prisoners to the left hand, and
holding them both firmly with one hand
by the collars, picked up the senseless
man with bis right arm aud threw him
over his shoulder.
It must have been a curious sight to
see this marvelous man with his sense
less burden and captives going down
the streets of Montreal on that dark
night, tbe blood from the wounds in his
forehead running down and nigh blind
ing him. He dropped tbe wounded
man in at the hospital as he passed, and
took his prisoners to the station. Cyr,
however, was very much cut about,
and had himself to go to the hospital.
This and many other episodes during
his service with the potlee made him
very popular, and after the event de- ]
scribed he was left unmolested.
He bad been a custodian of the po
lice for nearly two years, when an inci
dent happened which called attention to
his iaj?jensity oif strength.
One day he was on duty to one of
the chief thoroughfares, when a cart
ladeo with brick came to grief. The
horse fell dowa, and the shafts were
broken. They succeeded in getting
the horse free from the bareess. But
what was to be doae with the cart?
There it stood right in tbe line of
trame. It was suggested that it should
be unloaded.
"Stand on one side," said tbe muscu
lar young policeman. Divesting him
self of his coat and handing bis hat to
somebody by, ha crouched under the
cart, pressing up with his great broad
shoulders. The bricks cart, and all
were lifted foot by foot until they were
moved right ou to the sidewalk.
The applause of the crowd collected
was tremendous. Some gentlemen who
had witnessed this performance were so
astonished that they had the whole lot
weighed. The weight that be had
lifted was found to bea jjuleover 2,100
pounds.
That feat of strength determined his
career.
He left the police and at once en
tered into the show business. By
steady practice with dumb-bells and
proper training his muscular powers
gradually increased to the enormous
dimensions of today.
The toughest customer he ever had
to deal with in lifting to the shoulder
was a Captain Burst. Oa one occasion
when in New Brunswick Bur*t offered
to bet him $200 that he would not lift
the same weight onto bis shoulder that
the captain would.
"Done," said Cyr, and tbe money
was put op.
This feat was not to take place at an
exhibition, but on board one of the ships
lying off where they were.
Now Burst was what you might eali a
"whopper." ile stood G feet 7 inches,
and, unlike the generality of giants, he
was a broad-shouldered, muscular indi
vidual.
So to the ship they repaired, with
the stake holder, referee and a few
acquaintances
Aboard the ve.?se! was an anchor
weighing exactly 800 puuds. Burst
picked up this pretty little toy and
placed it with apparently not much diffi
culty on to bis shoulder. It remained
there about a miuute, during which
time the wonderment aud applause was
great The anchor was then taken from
his shoulder by six men aud replaced
upon tbe deck.
Then came Cyr's turn, end the bet.
ting was two to oue against hjiu lie
had never attempted such a feat before.
Yet, nothing daunted, he grasped the
anchor, and, after a desperate struggle,
managed to get it on to his shoulders.
It was a near thtng, however, and
nothing like so easily done as by bis
opponent. Never mind, he got it
there.
"Now," said Cyr to the captain,
"just you get up aud straddle across (
my shoulders "
After some persuasion this he was
induced to do, and Cyr, to the blank
amusement of the crowd, especially hie
opponent, walked around the deck.
This 80 astonished Burst that he shook
him by the hand and said : "Well,
now, you are the first man I've erer
given best on that feat." And the
$200 were paid to Cyr.
There is only one man that he has
met who was spiteful and aggressive
through jealousy of bis superior powers.
Tbat was a man named Parker. Outside
the hall where be was showing the beavy
dumb-bells were exhibited, Cyr offered
to anybody who coold lift with one band
the 242 pound weight $10. Parker
came along and said be could do it, but
failed. He was so mad about it tbat
he swore Cyr himself could not ac
complish tbe feat. Of course Cyr
laughed at him.
'Look here," he said : " 1 bet you
$50 that 1 put tbe weight up at
arm's length over my bead, right here
oo tbe spot."
Done," said Parker, and tbe money
was accordingly put op. And so was
tbe dumb-bell, much to the surprise
and annoyance of tbe incredulous
aspirant.
He became so eoraged that be was
abusive, and after a wordy warfare, in
which the weapons used were culled
from anything but choice langaoage,
Parker struck Cyr. In an instant he
was in the arms of the modern Hercules,
who gave him a squeeze tbat made bis
ribs crack,then hurled him to tbe middle
of the road. Crash be came down, and
there lay until be was taken away to
the hospital with an injury to bis
back.
"And that's tbe only time," said
Cyr, "that I ever came to blows and
straggle since ? took to exhibiting."
Kind of Jurors Preferred.
Criminal court lawyers always like to
have their cases on the first two or three
days of the term if possible. The reason
is that the jurors in many instances are
fresh and green at the work of listening
to evidence, and invariably show more
sympathy for the persons on trial than
they have after they have sat for a couple
of week 8.
Jurors in the general sessions court
are chosen to try cases for a month.
Every term there are always some who
have never been in the court before,
while of course others have had plenty
of experience and are adamantine. Se
the young lawyer at the beginning of
the month dwells on the sympathetic
side of his case and resorts to all tricks,
such as bringing the weeping wife into
court, and tells the juries of the terrible
results of a term in state prison.?New
York Times.

AN EXCEPTIONAL YEAR.
The year bas been marked by a greater ad

It is proposed to publish a series of arti

the results of special study aod work among
the poor of the great cities. The plan will
include an account of the conditions of life
in those cities (in many lands) where the re
sults of research will be helpful for pnrposes
of comparison as well as for their own intrin
sic interest. While, from a scientific point of
view, the articles will be a contribution of
great importance, the treatment will be
thoroughly popular, and the elaborate illus
