THE SOUTHERN ENJOINED
Against Discontinuing Operating n
Rocky Mount, Va., July 1.?Some
time ago counsel of the Southern railroad
met the officers of the Franklin and Pitt
sylvauia railroad at this place and sub?
mitted a proposition with a view to dis?
continuing operating the latter load. It
has been ascertained that the Southern
hns declined to renew the contract with
the Postoffice Department for carrying
the mails over the branch from Franklin
junction to this place after to day. It
was also known that the company ha''
ordered it* agent at this place to close the
depot and report at Franklin Junction.
This indicated its purpose to abandon the
road on and after July 1st and cease to
operate it. President Helms beiug no
tided of these facts, decided to apply to
the courts for an injuction to compel the
Southern to continue operrttions, nnd
having secured the injunction of Judge
Dupuy, of Roauoke, notice was served
upon the agents of the Southern. The
case will be heard upon its merits by
Judge Whittle, of this judicial circuit.
There is intense excitement on the part
of the people in regard to the action of
the Southern company. It Is not known
what further action the Southern will

SOMETHING TO DEPEND ON.
Mr. .lames Jones, of the drug firm of
Jones &? Son, Cowdcn, III., in speaking
of Dr. King's New Discovery, says that
last winter ids wife was attacked with
La Grippe, and her case "rew so serious
that physicians at Cowdcn and Pana
could do nothing for her. It seemed to
develop into hasty consumption. Having
Dr. King's New Discovery in store, and
selling lots of it, he took a bottle homo,
and to the surprise of all she began to get
better from first dose, and half dozen
dollar bottles cured her sound and well.
Dr. King's New Discovery for Consump?
tion, Coughs and Colds is guaranteed to
do tins good work. Try it. Free trial

Chairman Butler's Policy;Severely Criti?
cised by tho ox-Candidate.
Atlanta, July 1.? Thomas *E. Wutson,
late Populist caudidate for Vlce-Presl
dent,In an e<lltorlal in his People's Party
paper, issued to night, discusses the Pop?
ulist conference to bo held at NaBhvlllo
next week, and incidentally makes a
severe arraignment of National Chairman
Butler's policy. In th 5 course of his edi?
torial he says:
"We'would really like to know bow
Populist principles arc to grow by being
trailed off, first to one of the old parties
and then to the othor; aud wo especially
hunger and t hirst to know how warfare
on both the oh" parties is to thrive when
an office barter exchange is established
with both. We trust the [Nashville con?
ference will decide the vexed question of
fusion in such a manner that no Populist
can be uncertain of the party doctrine.
"Our own belief Is that no gentleman
will remain in the People's party if tho
idea onco gets abroad that Populism aud
Hessianism are synoumous terms. If
our voters aro moro mercenaries to be
traded for office in any market where
there is a demand for them, no deceutr
man will be caught in that company."
Mr. Isaac Horner, proprietor of the
Burton House, Burton, W. Va., and one
of the most widely known men in the
State was cured of rheumatism after
three years ol suffering. He says: "I have
not sufficient command of language to
convey any idea of what I suffered; my
physicians told nut that nothing could be
doue for mo and*my friends were fully
convinced that, nothing but death would
relieve tue of my suffering. In Jude,
1894, Mr. Evans, then salesman for tho
Wheeling Drug Company, recommended
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. At this time
my foot aud limb were swollen to more
than double their normal si/.e and it
seemed to me my leg would burst, but
soon after I began using the Pain Balm
the swelling began to decrease, the pain
to leave, aud now I consider that I am
entirely cured." For sale by 11. C. Barr.es,
