I spread of the (Vtniet thtfy Wert Helpless. while
terror-stricken parents rushed frantically
around searching for ml??lng children and
walling over their loss. The lire department
was ol little avail against the mad rush ol
the surging flames, and in one hour the entire
building was a mass of ruins.
I St. Louts. January 6.?The following illsj
patch fr??m Belleville to the Associated Pre**
i gives further particulars of the burning of
I the eonveut there last night. The eonv. i>i
j was known as the Institute of the Immaculate

i Notie Dr.n-e. The tire was the most destruet!
Ive to the life and pr >pcrty that Belleville ha*
ever experienced. A visit to the scene this
morning showed fire department still on
duty, e i leavoring to ijn<>nc!) the flames.J sr
as to preserve in recognizable shape the
bodies of the victims. When ihc ruins were
sufllcientijr cooled a volunteer corps went If
work to bring out the bodies; It was a terrible
slg'it. At times the seajchers would find
. two or three charred masses, huddled closc
(together as if the *.Iciims had sought protection
from one another from the advancing

The loss of llie Ik much creator than estlma'ed

supposed, the total known deaths are twentyseven.
twenty-two pupils and five Klsteis.
Anion* the Utter is the Sister superior. On

j Sisters slept. On the third Uoor the rem lining
.Sisters slept, and on tlie second, or floor
uhove the hispmunt. what arc termed orphans
and half orphans si pt. The Inmates
I on the second floor were saved.
I The Are was caused by the furnace in the
; basement, and when discovered the floorimi
mediately above was ablaze and volumes ol
i smoke were rapidly pouring through the
! stairways, corridors ami halls of the 1>iiiMitiir.
' 1 ty the time ttie Biropen* were thoroughly
i aroused all the avenues of escape were tilled
' with building smoke. A panic ensued and
Uie scene that followed was heartrending be

j The extreme cold retarded the work of the
' firemen. ami even If they could him- reached
; the scene without delay they would havr

1 There were no ladder* In the tire departineut,
\ and no provisions were made for so deplorable
an emergency by the managers of the Institution.
The unfortunate inmate* were
therefore powerless lo help themsot von, and

The Arqxui docs not reason well when It as-:
scris that the building of the roads mention-j
i*tl w'il not benefit the Saluda section <?!' Ah-1
heville county. The building ol a railroad I
throtiL'h nny county enhances the vulnc of.
property, brings In n desirable population,
, builds up sehoolR and chun-lics, and open* up
| markets nml facilities r?r the sale of the proiducts
of the soil thai would lie wanting In the
,absence of a railroad, and the Incidental adj
vantages extends to every nook and coiner of
the county. It Is true that the property of
those who live Immediately along the line of
' n railroad Is incua-et In value more than
those who live more remotely from It. but. it
Is equally true, that If the road Is built by j
taxation, that each taxpayer pays In propor- |
I tl'>n to the benefits derived for the more value'
of his properly is Increased the greater" j
amount ol taxes he will have to pay and in !
the < nd, each individual will pay only In proportion
to the benefit* derived. As a 'Vcarecrow"
the Argus makes the following reference
to t tils and other counties:
"Those counties which have experienced
the effect* of bonds hanging over them, warn |
us against such measure. \Ve have been as- \
sured that persons who would hive purchased
lands In Greenville and IMckons counties j
have refused to do so on account of the bond-1
ed debts hanging over tho-c conn tie*. Pickens
county has been time and again bHore |
the courts on account of her indebtedness to j
the Air Mne Railroad, or this Identical pur-!
po?e, and In the face or all this experience. I
Abbeville county Is to be asked to repeat the
Koine folly."
If It Is true (lint persons have refused ttt
purchase lands In this county on account of
the bonded debt "haniMng" over It, we only
have to say thit. they have missed their opKoriunlly,
for the price of Innd In this county
ns Increased ut least one hundred per cent,
i since the building of the Air Line ItallroadJ
und the tendency In still upward. It is true
that Pickets did go Into the court* on the
question of the validity of her bonds, but
that Is no argument acftlust tlie benefits she'
ha? derived iioni Ihe building of the rottd.
I People soineIlm',H do very looiuh thins*, and
I tlmt *vii? n very foolish thlnt; ihec>>unty did.
r but with her present experience, wcare sure
she would never repeat It.
We do not believe the people of the county
would to-day have the Air Line road removed
i trom her hordefnilf such a thing whs po-sl|
hie) and he without Its benefits and convetinlencet
for three times the amount ol her
i subscription to it. To (show the benefits of
1 the road to our people we will ulve one ?lmpl'<
I Illustration. Jlcfore Its construction, the
;; price of cotton in tills sei-tlon was from to
' \'l cents per pound lower than it wns In
i | Charleston. Now, with cotton buyers at ev?!
cry station along the road. the price ha* trono
': up to nearly tbo Charleston price; It has been
' Increased at least one cent on the pound Ac>
I cording to the censu? of 1879. the cotton crop!
of this county was 5 7.V1 bales,'the average of,
a bale of cotton In this county Nabout aOO ]
s pounds ) The increase In the pri-e, on ac-:
j count of the construction of the Air Lfno,
: ! Railroad, wasal least,one cent, on the Dhitiid.
|Thi< gives us a saving <;f .?5.01 or, the tiatci or |
ion theeiiilre crop of IH73. ?2<,7S0.
It will be remembered that 1>7S was a b'nc! j
crop year, mid Hint tin* crop of an nverngei I
1 good year Is considerably more tlinn was re- j
ported Tor that year. We think it wife to Buy |
tlint the average crop In thlseounty now, i
with n yearly increase, Ik, 8,o N) b:il?*s. This i
given iib a saving to the farmer* each year on |
I cotton nlone, of $40 OVJ. Therfi are a hundred j
j other ways in which money lm? been saved
, t<> our people by the building of this great ar-1
i tery of commerce, and we suppose the aggre-'
i cate would lie ST'i.ODO or S100.000 annually. !
Who In the face of these facts will dare say
that the hundred thousand dollars voted by
' I the county to the road has been money badly
juponi?
As to what the county will do In aid of the
jr. r. d AC. R. It. we do not know, but we
j will stito for the Information of the Artfiu
land others concerned, that wo have heard
'someof the largest taxpayer* In this (Pickens,

they were willing to vote a tax on each of

I Siuart, Kusong Co., of Tennessee, were the
f lowest bidder*,aud were awarded the contract
- for th?* whole of the elirht and a half miles at
. the tireenville end of the line. Tor which bid*
i were received. The contractors are a compaI
ny of wealthy nnd experienced men. who
.will push the work through with rapidity.
They contract to begin the work by February
! firm and to complete It by the first of July,
j Their contract cover* the most expensive part
a of tho line and will be cxeruted at a c.ohI to
.. the company of ai> average of twelve cents a
k cubic yard for earth work. Including cuts nnd
t Alls, which amounts to about 83,000 per mile;
t.The railroad company havethc option of pny,.
Ing for the work, if they desire, in Greenville
; ;and I,aurens County bonds, at ninety cents

ginning for the building of tbe r<>ad. Coni

I now contcmpluted that the whole line of

II piled with croKStles at a cost of from 5W>.<*iO to

t will be done, and the ro-id will bnve on hand
a a cash surplus of something like $75,0:0, with
which to extend lis line toward Asheville,
0 which It Is the determined policy of the
- Greenville and Tjutrens people who own the
il road now about to be built to do. The people
, of (Jrecnvllle are especially wide awake on

i- ( apt Kirk and his corps In March or April,
