Tiie Importance of the announce?

Oelved by him In New York yesterday.
Net only are the representatives of
Southern financial interests to he rec?
ognized in the enlarged hoard of di?
rectors, according to a dispatch to the
American from its New York corres?
pondent, hut in tiie physical manage?
ment of the road sight is not to be
lost for a moment of the fact that
henceforth the Seaboard is a lug
Southern enterprise, conducted with
an eye to Southern industrial inter?
ests, as well as an eye to all of the
Stockholders of the company.
To Baltimore the change of con?
trol means much. Although the road j
does pot properly traverse Maryland
territory, except as its control of the
hay Lane running from Norfolk to
Baltimore. Maryland will continue to
have four members of the hoard of
directors, besides having the control
rest with one of It! liveliest financiers,

"i'or years we have been talking of '

Mr. Warfleld In New York yesterday. |
"and 1 thought the time had come J
