Brooklin had an investigation last
summer. It did not prove satisfac

having a law suit of indefinite length.
The flood came and cut us off from
the outside world, so to drive off

we don't know how long in the fu
ture, our town authorities and a
committee of our steady going citi

the Court House. The concern is
wll patronized ; but it is growing
rather dull. We stepped in a few
minutes, and after studying the per
sona dramatic awhile, we became
weary and left. We don't believe
anything will be developed by the
investigation. But as the affair is
conducted under the forms of law
we will say nothing to the prejudice
of any of the interested parties.
This iniquity is now a law. Found

and consummated with a spirit of
revenge, it is ready to do its dirty
We had hoped it would not get
through the Senate, but as it did, we
were not surprised that the Presi

We can stand it in Tennessee, if
the white Radicals can. The great
trouble- is with tlie people further
South. The best way is to avoid
coming in conflict with the provis
ions of the law, when it is possible.
The negroes in this section of the
country will rot he any trouble. The
Southern people are called on now
to-show more fortitude than ever be

It is impossible to approximate
the damages of the late flood. On
the waters of Chucky and French
Droad. almost all the mills were in
jured more or less by the breaking
of damp, race., etc. Fences, grain and
stock were swept away. Some land
was much injured by the loss of soil ;
at other points, a rich deposit of rich
loam will enhance the real value of
the land. Trie greatest damage and
inconvenience south of ns is the con
dition of the Buncombe railroad.
We can now form no idea how soon
the train can run on the road.
On Saturday Mr. John Easly suc
ceeded in getting a wagon through

mountain. He told us that every
thing that could be moved by water
was gone. A number of men are

Last Thursday, about 6 o'clock,
p. m., a sad accident occurred on tire
East Tennessee, Virginia and Geor
gia Railroad, at a bridge one mile
and a half west of Philadelphia.
The engineer, David Ilolloway, while
trying the new bridge, lost his life.
We find iff following statement
in the Knoxville Chronicle of Satur
day :
We met Conductor Elmore, who
had charge of the train, the engine
of which was wrecked,, and- got from
him the following report : He arriv
ed yesterrTay evening at the bridge
in question and found it not quite
completed. He reported to Road
master Benson, that some of his re
pairs on the road some three miles
bask were giving way. and were not
safe foT trains to pass oner, when
Mr. Benson sent a number of men
back with Elmore's train to make
the necessary repairs. Conductor
Elmore, however, remaining.
He came to the bridge a half mile
this side, where Roadmaster Moore
and Capt. Jaques were trying a bridge
they had just completed by running
a loaded flat over it, and finding it
give somewhat, Mr. Moore said he
would not risk an engine on his
bridge until he had further braced it.
About this time they could see that
the train had returned, and hearing
the engineer whistle off brakes, some
one remarked Benson is going to try
his bridge with the engine, to which
Mr. Elmore replied, he certainly is
not going to do that, but looking
they could see the engine advancing,
and having fairly gotten on the
the bridge, the headlight suddenly
disappeared and the crash was heard,
every one turning as white as a sheet.
Rnshing there and the true condi
tion of affairs being seen, Captain
Jaques was seen to weep like a child.
The general opinion is that Road
master Benson Is at fault in urgtng
the unfortunate man to attempt to
cross the bridge. It is stated that
Mr. Armbrustar, master of car re
pairs, pronounced the bridge unsafe
until better braced, but that Mr. Ben
son insisted it was safe. Engineer
Holloway hesitated about making ihe
attempt, anq considered it unsafe,
but was repeatedly called upon to
cross by Mr. Benson, who was on
this side of the cre-ek:. Finally the
engine was cut loose from the train,
and the engineer insisted on Jordon
Smith (the fireman) leaving the en
gine, stating that if there was any
danger one man was enough to be
killed. The fireman did not wish to
leave him, but the engineer-Insisted,
and being alone he started on his
perilous and last trip. As soon as
Live engine and tender had fairly got
ten on the bridge it gave way sud
denly, and the poor man was hurled
into eternity.
Before reaching the water he whis
tled on brakes. The above we gath
ered from different parties who were
near the scene, and from parties who
had a conversation with Smith, the
fireman. VV e failed to see Mr. Smith,
although inquiring for him, but sup
pose we have given about the facts
of the case.
The reporter of the Press and Her
ald had an interview with the fire
man of Mr. Holloway' s engine, A.J.
Smith. He said :
I was the fireman on Mr. IIo! Jo
way's engine. We left Knoxville on
No. 1 passenger train, last Wednes
day morning a week ago, for Chatta
nooga, but d-id not get any further
down than Athens, owing to the
breaks in the road. Yesterday af
ternoon we started up from four
iniles this sirle of Sweetwater, with a
train on which were a good many
passengers, and intended coming to
Knoxville. e ran on a little while
and then arrived at the bridge a mile
and a half west of Philadelphia, over
Sweetwater Creek. Mr. Benson's
party were at work 0.1 the bridge,
which had been carried off by the
flood. We wailed there about an
hour. The engine was standing
pretty near the bridge and Mr. Ben
eon (the road master of the Western
Division) ordered me to run her back
away from the bridge, as she was
making so much noise he could not
hear the workmen. I got on the en
gine and ran her back two or three
hundred yards.
The engine was disconnected from
the train, and Mr. Holloway was not
on it. About dark I learned that
the engine was to run over the bridge
to test it, and soon after I was sig
nalled by a lantern to go forward. I
moved the engine on slowly, and had
gone maybe half the distance to the
bridge when Mr. Holloway stepped
on her. He said to me, "Jud, you
need not go over the bridge unless
you want to ; if I were you I would
not go.:' I said I didn't know about
it. Just as we neared the bridge Mr.
Holloway said to me again, a tremor
in hia voice, "Jud, perhaps the bridge
may fall, and - something happen.
You had better get off; there is no
reason why you and I both should be
killed." I said then, that as ho in
sisted, I would go, and stepped off.
The engine went slowly on the
bridge. When it reached the central
portion, tight over the creek, I heard
a crash, and saw the bridge give way,
the tender fall into the water and
the engine double backward and fall
on the tender. As it went down I
heard the shriek of the whistle. I
suppose Mr Holloway started to
jsrmp, and his hand caught on the
whistle lever.
There were quite a number who
witnessed the accident. Capt. Jaques
was there, and Mr. Benson. After
a moment somebody hnliooed that
Mr. Holloway was in the creek, and
I hastened, with a seotion hand, in
to a skiff, and rowed some distance,
but only succeeded In finding his hat
which was floating down stream.
Then we came back and afterwards
discovered that Mr. Holloway had
been fastoned dowu between the
tender and the engine, and was dead.
I saw his body. He was caught
across hia breast, which was crushed.
We found it impossible to get the
body from under the enging. The
tender was at the bottom of the
creek, and the engine lay over it.the
body being out of the water.
Those of the passengers who had
not previously gone over the bridge,
were taken across the creek by boat,
and reaching a gravel train, , half a
mile away, wo came ou it to Knox
rille about one o'clock this rcornirg.
Said "Jud" Smith, in concluding :
"There was no nobler man ever liv
ed than Dave Holloway. He seemed
to fear that he would not get safely
over the bridge, and when he told
me the last time to get off the en
gine, his voice trembled so that he
could scarcely speak."
The portion of the bridge which
gave way was supported by a single
trestle, tmrJ as the engine came over
it, the sides of the trestle spread, thus
letting the structure iuto the creek.
Mr. Beuson has been road master of
the western division for a number of
years, and is credited with much ex
perience and ability. His responsi
bility for the accident is in propor
tion to the reliance placed in his
skill and judgment.
Mr. Holloway was raised six miles
South of this place. All who knew
him loved and respected him. The
Announcement of his death caused a
deep gloom in the entire community.
The sympathy of his acquaintances
for his wife and relatives is too deep
for expression,
David Holloway was a true hero.
But the thought of that heroism can
not soothe the grief-stricken widow.
The fact that he was a Christian can
bring consolation ; but still the fact
that it was not necessary for the road
master to urge him to cross the bridge
and sacrifice his life, leaves a dead
ening weight on the ffearts of his
friends, which at this early stage,
cannot be explained. Language rails
to convey any idea of the feelings of
the people of this commuuTt'. Mr.
Holloway was a worthy member of
the Morristown Masonic Lodge. He
also was a member of the Broad
Street M. E. Church, Knoxville. His
funeial took place Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Cody, of Chucky, a very indus

about 800 bushels of corn, the greater
part of his summer's labor.
We have been requested to state that
the Fair of the Farmers and Mechanics
Association of Greene county, will be
held on the 29th and 30th of September,
and the first day of October.
The damages done the farmers on the
creeks and rivers of this section are very
heavy. They are much heavier in many
instances than the losses during the flood
of '67.
Farmers will be at immense expense
in making new fences, many of them
losing from a half to a mile and a half of
fence. Floods in this section work more
to the injury of the farmer than any
other class.

Alfred Reynolds, at the headwaters of

The saddest thing that has ever occur
red in this part of the country, took
place last Saturday morning, about 11
o'clock. Miss Sallie Cf. aba, who was
living with her uncle and aunt hare in
town, committed suicide by hanging
herself. Temporary insanity is thought
to be the cause . She was a daughter of
Wm. Combs, who some year since, was
run over by the freight train near Yan
ce'a tank and killed The manner in
which he was killed gave bis daughter
great trouble. Some think that she has
never been rightly at herself since.

the citizens in the vicinity.
Our friend, Charley King, of the MA.

drowned during the late rise. His lands,
with the exception of the sedge fields,
are badly damaged .
We had something to say last week
about the freshet, and renew our remarks
to-day. At this place and immediate vi
cinity the damage is comparatively light.
Cleage's Grist Mill commenced running
again Tuesday. Loss not more than
$1,000. Mr. Getty's Tan Yard ia dam
