A FIGHT IN THE SOUTH. Engineers in Tennessee Refuse to Pull ‘ Q” Cars. Cairo, 111., March 20.—The Illinois Cen tral engineers at Jackson, Tenn., last night refused to pull a train until three Burling ton cars were cut out ami side-tracked, which was done. At Fulton, Ky., the company was obliged to refuse several Burlington cars from the Chesapeake and Ohio road for the same reason. It is generally understood on tho line of the Illinois Central South that the engineers will handle no Burlington road cars. A dispatch from East St. Louis says a freight train made up exclusively of cars for the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy road wa brought over tho Louisville and Nashville yesterday from Mount Vernon by the Master Mechanic, the regular engi neers having refused to handle the freight. HANDLING “<j” CARS. Kansas City, Mo., March 30.—A sur prising development in the situation of tho Burlington strike t<. -day was the handling of boycotted freight by all roads but one, the Wabash and Western. The engineers made no objections whatever, and this cir cumstance is partly due to the fact that the Grievance Couirni tees on some of the roads ngis ed to make no objection to Burlington freight. This amounts to a practical surren der of ~n of the weiqjons with wh oh the men have tieeu carrying on their coutest, hut they stoutly deny that it is an indication of weakening, and maintain that it was nice ly done as a matter of prudence. The first freight handled by the Santa Feroad to-day was a train of Burlington cars, and the Missouri Pacific, Fort Scott and Gulf and the Union Pacific all announced their will ingness and ability to take care of all the business offered. "Q” CARS REJECTED IN ALABAMA. Decatur, Ala., March 30.—The en gineers on the Louisville anil Nashville railroad at Decatur to-day refused to pull a fieight train to which a‘"Q” car was at tached.

The car is now standing in the yard and the engineers all refuse to pull a train to which it is attached. a settlement.

Shortly afterward, Powell caused the negro’s arrest, eharging him with carrying concealed weapons. Shortly after dark two officers started with him for this city, where they were to place hint in jail. When they came to a deserted spot in the road .they were suddenly at tacked by a mob, who took the prisoner from them, and leading him a short dis tance away, commenced tiring. Curry dropped dead instantly, and his murderers inode their escape.” FLOWERS WON’T BLOOM IN SNOW. A Foot of Snow In Texas Just In Time to Nip the Buds.

A Lawyer Hurls Vile Epithets at the Opposing Counsel. Cleveland, 0., March 20.—L. S. Nor ton, for years one of the leading metnb rs of the Erie, Fa., bar went violently insane yesterday while arguing a case in court in Erie, and astonished every body by the n-e of the vilest language toward the opposing counsel. Last night he roamed the streets of Erie, and this morning he attempted to shoot one of his children, und afterwards threatened his wife. He was arrested, and will lie sent to an insane asylum. Norton had recently re moved to Bismarck Dak., and had returned to Erie to try an important case. Overwork and political disappointment are given as the cause of his sudden insanity.

The railroad will be completed in sixty days, and cars will lie running to the scene of t.ie battle above the clouds. THE RICHMON 1) TEKM IN AL THE FIGHT FOR CONTROL A TRI ANGULAR ONE. One of the Factions Said to be Anxious to Get in Power in Order to Unload the Georgia Company’s Stock A Move for Norfolk. New York, March 20. —The Richmond Terminal squabble waxes hot and has re solved itself into a triangular fight, one side of which is said to embrace Alfred Sully and his immediate friends, who are bent on continuing him in the Presidency as a practical indorsement of him personally and his administration. The second side is represented by Isaac L. R’ee, William Lib bey, E. W. Clark and their associates, com posing what is called the new party now striving for control. The base of the tri angle is a majority of the present directors, presumably including Gen. Samuel Thomas, Calvin S. Brice, John H, Inman, George S. Scott, George F. Stone and others. STRONGEST AT THE BASE. This is Wall street’s classification of the various factious, and if correct it is safe to say that the triangle will p. ove strongest at the base. The new party promises to pub lish within a few days their ticket and simultaneously to a inounoe their plaiforui, both of which they say will appeal so strongly to all stockholders as to insure their victory at the election they propose having at the contenip! .te l call meeting. They say several of the present directors will be on their ticket, and that their man for President will be thoroughly acceptable to all concerned. AN OUTLINE OF THEIR POLICY. They outline their desires as follows: “An administration that will honestly strive for the liest interests of the Term! ol Company and protect its securities against stock job bing in nipulations and other Wall street practices, arid a policy that will harmonize all the great Southern railroad systems, notably the Georgia Central, the Louisville and Nashville ni the East Tennessee, Vir ginia and Georgia.” This last end they hope to attain, not by consolidations, but by an equal division of territory that will check the present tend ency toward unprofitable competitive rail road building. HIDDEN MOTIVES. This certainly looks fair on its face, but in some quarters it is suggested that the virtues of the programme are all on the outside and tha belli and !he avowed policy are motives quite designing. For instance, the theory is advanced that the move is in the interest of the Norfolk and Western railway, which id-a is the more plausible because E. W. Clark and William Libbey are said to lie largely interested in the Nor folk and Western, ff tliis is true it would naturally preju lice the cause in Georgia, since the ultimate object would be to divert traffic from Atlanta and Savannah to Norfolk. AFTER THE GEORGIA CENTRAL. Another suggestion is that this new party is bent on getting control of the Terminal company, with the idea of selling to it a controlling interest in the Georgia Central. This theorv gathers strength from the fact that Isaac. L. Rice, E. W. Clark, H. B. Hol lins, Emanuel Irehman and one or two others, who are said to be in sympathy with the new Terminal pirty, are also members of the syndicate that owns a majority of the Georgia Central stock. Gen. Thomas and Mr. Brice are traveling in Florida, and thereby escape the present i utnpus. John H. Inman and George S. Scott are here, but both decline to discuss the matter. A WONDERFUL IMPROVEMENT. The latter is devoting himself to his duties as President of the Richmond and Danville road, and His able management is working marvelous improvement in that com pany’s affairs. Since he took charge he has cut down the current expenses over SS,(XX) a month, and reduced the float ing debt from about $700,004 to $235,000. He savs the eur dugs of t.ne Richmond and Danville are entirely satisfactory, and that if there was complete harmony in the Terminal management lie verily believes he could pay ali the fixed charges of that com pany from the net earnings of the Rich mond and Danville alone. Death of an Editor. Pittsburg, Pa., March 30.—C. R. Shaw, formerly managing editor of the Pittsburg Dispatch, with a proprietary interest, died at 1 o’clock this morning after a prolonged illness. The deceased was 4o years of age, and until his health failed four years ago. was widely known as one of the brightest and most successful of newspaper workers iu the country. The Baby Saved the County Funds. Mr. Richard Church, of Belvidere, Alle gany county, well known in western New York, recently visited Auburn prison, says the Butin lo Express, and was ullowed to converse with the convicts. “How do you do, Mr. Church?” said one of the prisoners. “You have the advantage of me,” said the visitor. “I don’t recognize 1 *you— cer tainly not in that uniform.” “Well, I know you,” said the convict, smilingly. “Do you remember one dark night two vears ago this summer, when you were riding alone, through the woods just this side of Angelica? You were driving vour mare Kate, when she suddenly shie I and almost turned over your carriage. You said: “ ‘Whoa, Kate, that’s something new for you to do. Behave yourself!’ ’’ “Yes, I remember that incident. It was the fir.'t time Kate ever was frightened, and it surprised nte. ” “Well. I’ll tell you what started her. I had just stepped behind a large brush heap bv the roadside to get out of your sight. The mare saw me. I was on my wav to rob the treasurer of Allegany county. 1 knew lie was going to deposit the county money in a few days, and that he kept it in a box under his bed.” “Did you get it?” asked Mr. Church. “No, but I came very near to getting it. I got into the house. I had just rose ied tlie door of the beilroom where ho and his wife and ttie baby were sleeping, and was about to enter when the baby cried and awoke its mother. I waited a long time, but I guess the kid had the colic. Finally 1 made my sneak and gave it up for the night. 1 went back to the big brush heap and hid in it all day without a mouthful to oat. 1 didn’t want to bo seen anywhere around that neighborhood, because I once st >lo horses there and some of the people knew me.” “Di t you try it again?” asked Mr. Church. “Yes, on the following night, but with the same exp 'l ienee. The Treasurer was walking the floor with the baby. Next day he took the money to tlie bank and deposit ed it.” Strange But Nice Are Fortune’s Ways. To buy or not to buy, was the question that three ladies, Mrs. H. De La up, 377 St. Ann street, Mrs. Honore Flotte, 281 Bayou Road, and Miss Mary Henry, 2UB St. Philip street, asked when Mrs. V. Gilly, 208 St. Philip street, a vender of Louisiana State Lottery tickets, called upon th in with the last tenth ticket she hud. A mutual invest ment of a quarter of a dollar wn- resolved upon on out -tenth of ticket No. 71,575, the number that, in the Grand Monthly Draw ing, Fell, 7, 1888, drew the capital prize of One Hundred and Fifty Thousand 1) liars, and Mrs. (Lllv presented the ticket last Thursday and received therefor a check.
