In the enactment of laws to prevent abuse"-, and to guarantee to the people fair treatment. The rates ought to lie reasonable, and there should be no unjust discrimination. < >n tlie other hand, we are most ear estly opposed to legislation, the tendency of which is toeitlier destroy the railroads or seriously impair their value to the people. All that a rail road has to sell is its transportation bf freight and passengers. Any laws which reduce rates so that the gross income is non-compensatory to the railroad company, or any law that im jxjses unjust and excessive burdens upon tlie railroads in t lie way of ex pense, ought to he condemned. I f a railroad is prosperous, it will have the means to extend its lines: to build branches, to erect machine shops and roundhouses, and all this means the expenditure <»f large sums of money in tlie State of Arkansas. Reasonable revenues mean a proper maintenance of tlie property, good equipment and efficient service. An unreasonable re duction of rates, or imposition of un reasonable burdens in tlie way of ex pense, of necessity mean |xx>r track, poor equipment, slow and inefficient service and the development of no new territory. The people want the railroads and they want them to l<e prosperous, and any legislature which does not meet this public demand will not win t lie public approval. ST, I'KtNCIS KIYF.lt KKlIKiE. An event of vast importance trans pired last Saturday at Madison. While it attracted but little attention, its importance is of incalculable value to St. Francis county, particularly to the bottom country and Forrest City. It was the inspection and acceptance of the St. Francis river bridge by Commissioner DeRositt and Consult ing Engineer II. N. l’harr. These gentlemen have watched the con struction of tlie bridge from its be ginning, and minutely examined it when completed and accepted it as a good and faithful piece of work. The bridge was thrown open to travel. This structure is a lieautiful monu ment to the progressive spirit of Judge T. C. Folbre and the Quorum Court, who started this work, and to I udge E. A. Rolfe, Judge Follire's successor, who pushed this work to completion, and more particularly to Mon. F. W. IH'llosi11, to whose untiring energy the scheme of a bridge across the St. F'rancis was born and carried to snecess. The bridge is a free bridge. Judge Iiolfe desires us to state that a tine of #g.")wiil lx- imposed on any one who rides or drives faster than a walk across tiie bridge, and t hat not more than ten head of stock will U.* allowed to cross at one time. Half of this tine goes to tiie informer. The road from Forrest City to the bridge should lx- graveled, and it i suggested 111at the merchants and landowners contribute money, men and teams to do this work without cost to t lie county. Haw kius-ritillip'. Mr. ( ay Hawkins, cashier of the Hank of Hawn s, and Miss < >llic l’hil iips, were happily married by the pastor at the Methodist church in Haynes, on Wednesday night at 7:.i0 o'clock in the presence of a large con gregation of friends. The pretty little church had been beautifully decorated fur the occasion and the ceremonies were of a most elaborate character. Both principals are prominent young society people of that town, who have a large circle of friends, and wish to join these in all good wishes and congratulations. They received many lovely presents as tokens of the high esteem in which they are held. -— Mrs. \aecaro and Miss Freeman En tertain at Bridge. Mrs. A. J.

The debate at Palestine iretween Rev. Dunn and Kid. Pippin is attract ing visitors from far and near and a great deal of Interest is being mani fested. 'J'iie current reports from Bap tists who have heard some of the de lates is to tlie effect that Kid. Pippin has a little tlie best of his opponent, as tie is an experienced debater. So far as we are concerned,we could never see the propriety nor the good of such debates. They stir up strife and en gender animosities, which are any thing but Chiistian in character. The lowly .lesu> would no doubt look upon such discussions with great disfavor. Mrs. Warshavsky returned this morning from St. Louis, where she had been for a week buying a fine big shx-k of spring goods of all kinds. They will move next week into the building vacated by K.

Rutsky also returned and his big stock of Racket goods will arrive next week and be opened up in the building now being vacated by 11. .1 Warshavsky. Live them a call and see the 5c and l"c Racket goods. < hie of the most enjoyable functions i last week was at the elegant home of Mrs. Alexander Becker and Miss Roc ker, when on Saturday afternoon they entertained at "5uo.” The game was warmly contested, with victory for Mrs. T.
