Sir Arthur Sullivau says that rough trav

work by means of its brain-stimulating
effect. In which case Savannah should bo

electric roads and see if there is not rough
riding enough in the trip to develop the
powers of any kind of a brain worker.

A Possible Market for Ex-car Horses.
Recently there appeared in the local col
umns of the Morning News an item con
cerning the number of atreet car horses and
mules that would be thrown upon the mar
ket in consequence of the changing of the
oar lines from horss power to electric
power. Another item appeared in the tele
graph columns of the Morning News a
few days later telling of the formation in
Philadelphia of a society for the promotion
of the eating of horseflesh.
“Rut two and two together,” as the say
ing goes, and does not this Philadelphia
idea seem to solve the problem of what is to
become of the ex-car horses! And was not
the genius who Instituted the society a bene
factor to the car companies?
The tnste for horseflesh may not bo
natural, it is true. But neither is the taste
for oysters. Both must be acquired. Dur
ing the war many a southern soldier quicklr
noqutrcd a taste for mule moat, and found
it quite palatable, too. And sometimes the
only objection they found was that there
was too little of it.
In India men eat snakes, in China thy
oat dogs and rats, in Brazil they eat
monkeys, in Lapland they eat whale oil; so
why should not men in Philadelphia eat
horses? The society mentioned was formed,
not accidentally, but deliberately, and, it
must be presumed, for the purpose of
spreading happiness and brotherly love,
through the medium of an acquired taste
for horseflesh, throughout the range of its
influence. With these lights before them,
the car companies of this city who have, or
may have, mules to dispose of might do
well to communicate with the Philadel
Solicitor General Fraser.
W. W. Fraser, Esq., the able solicitor
general of the Eastern judioial oirouit, is a
candidate for re-election to that important
office. In the enforcement of the law s there
is no officer upon whom devolves more re
sponsibility than upon the prosecuting
attorney. It is necessary, therefore, that
he should t>e not only an able lawyer, but
also a good citizen and fearless man, who
would “nothing extenuate nor aught set
down in malice.”
Mr. Fraser has all the attributes which
oommand the respect of the community,
and his administration of his office has
given entire satisfaction to the bar and
benoh, and also to the entire community.
There is no opposition In Savannah, and
none that is known of in this judicial cir
cuit, to Mr. Fraser's re-election, but only a
desire on the part of the friends of another
gentleman to seoure for him the solicitor
Tbe situation in Virginia grows brighter
as the time for the election approaches. It
appears now that the democrats have a
splendid prospect of sending a solid delega
tion to congress, despite the alleged deals
negotiated by Mahone. The democratic
leaders are quite well satisfied that the re
publicans Intend to conoentrate their efforts
on the Second, Fourth and Filth districts.
In the Fourth dlstriot the outlook is,
according to a Baltimore Sun special,
decidedly favorable to the eleottoa of
James F. Kpes, the democratic candidate.
On a full vote a* between tbe republicans
and democrats the majority is largely in
favor of the former, but the negroes, who
have constituted the great body of the re
publican vote in previous years, as they
have become educated, have divided In sen
timent, have become more liberal iu their
viows, and have so voted as to give majori
ties to the democrats in the last four years.
It is believed that the Fourth will go demo
cratic again this year aud that the other
two districts that the republicans are count
ing on will follow suit.
Arkansas has a kind of miniature edtti n
of John I. Davenport in the person of Chief
Federal Supervisor of Election John Mc-
Clure, known since the days of reconstruc
tion as “Poker Jack ” Assisted by two
clerks, he is busily engaged appointing sii*
pervisors of election and forwarding them
instructions. In flfty-on# of the seventy-five
counties in the stale the republicans and
populists have petitioned for the appoint
ment of these officials. He expects to ap
point about 2,000 supervisors. McClure
oontends that the Arkausas election law in
some of its provisions is unconstitutional.
The instructions he is sending to the super
visors, if obeyed, are curtain to
res ilt in a serious clash between these offi
cials and the eleotion judge, which would
be just about what McClure wants, as he
declares it his purpose to tost whether or
not the federal goveruinent has any power
in state elections. The immunity from
punishment for his illegal methods that
Davenport has so long enjoyed appears to
be raising up a crop of pol itioal sharps to
imitate his methods.
New York and Washington politicians
are inclined to believe that the nomination
of a second democratic municipal tioket in
New York will not effect the result of the
national contest ono way or the other. They
think the only possible affect will be to in
crease tho interest in registration, and, con
sequently, get out a larger vote on election
day. If there was any probability of the
County ticket endangering the election of a
Tammany candidate there would undoubt
edly be considerable trading that would
be injurious to the national ticket, but
there appears to bo no prospects of
a close contest. An arrangement has
been entered into, it is said, whereby the
County Democracy is not to force the fight
for their candidates any longer than Is nec
essary to bring out the full party registra
tion, and will then let the campaign drift so
far as they are concerned aud devote all
their tnergy to the success of the national

Georgia and the World's Fair.
The world's fair bnildings arn not yet
completed. The grounds are dosed to
the public, and the great exposition of 189 T
is still in its chrysalis stage. Nevertheless,
thousands upon thousands of people are
\ flocking to Chicago this week from every
; Btate in the anion, to gaze upon halt finished
buildings in which there are no exhibits.
This rush proves that the great fair has
taken a firm hold upon the minds of the
; people. They are eager for it. They can-
I not wait umil everything is ready, but
j must have a peep at it ahead of time. That
peep will only whet their curiosity and fire
i their patriotism. Next year they will all
i go back to Chicago again, and oar.ry with

The fair will drew together such orowd*
as have never before been gathered In
America. Men seeking profitable Invest -
mente for their surplus capital will visit
Chicago seeking “pointers.” Farmers who
have grown tired of tilling the frozen soil
of the far northwest with pickaxes and
dynamite as their principal implements will
visit the fair to see what tho states repre
sented there have better to offer. Mer
chants who have become disheartened in
overc owded sections will attend the fair
on the lookout for information that may be
to their advantage. Representatives of im
migration societies who have the placing of
desirable immigrants, and nia j of the
desirable immigrants themselves, will be in
Chicago to learn what state offers the best
Inducements to wealth-makers.
. But it is useless to name who will l>e In
Chicago for the purpose of learning the re
sources of the states nnd what they have to
offer buyers, manufacturers or workers.
And, very naturally, the states best adver
tised by their exhibits will be the states to
attract tho-e people.
Shall Georgia be among those well adver
tised states .’ There is not a stats in the union
with more to offer. Her resources are al
tnoit unbounded, but lack development.
Railroads gridiron the state, giving quick
and cheap access to the seaboard or north
ern markets, but along those railroads there
are millions of acres of land lying idle. Yet
who knows all of this except the people at
home t And how are others to know it if
they are never told? There is no better
way to Bhow tbe world wbat Georgia is now
and what she can be made than through
a good exhibit at the world's fair. Col.
Chariton H. Way, tbe state commissioner
for Georgia, is now in Chicago in attend
ance upon a meeting of the commissioners.
When he returns he will probably have
some interesting communications to make
to the people. Then they should go to work
and assist him in making an exhibit in Chi
cago of whioh the state may be proud. It
should not be forgotten that all depends
upon the people and the various commercial
bodies. Georgia, rs a commonwealth, has
made no appropriation for the fair, and
whatever is done must be accomplished by
private enterprise.
Put the Convicts on the Roads.
The oonvict leaso system which now ob
tains in this state is open to fatal objections
and, as must be apparent to every one who
has considered the matter, will have to be
abrogated at no very distant day. Tbe s ate
itself should have charge of lte convicts
and work them where their work will do
the most good without coming into compe
tition with free labor; that is, upon the
public highway*.
A law organizing a state engineer’s de
partment preparatory to the ohange would
be a step in the right direction. Suoh a de
partment, under a competent engineer,
could begin as soon as organized to prepare
plate, profiles and estimates for roadways
to be built with convict labor, and, as ex
isting contracts with oonviot employers run
out, the prisoners could be transferred from
the mines, or the saw.mills, or wherevsr
they may be employed, to the public roads.
It would necessarily take the chief en
gineer some time—a year, probably,—to
make surveys, estimates and drawings, and
lay out enough work to start the convicts on
the new road building system. During that
year there would be nothing, on the roads,
to show for the outlay on the part of the
state. But once the work was under way,
the wisdom of going about it scientifically
would become apparent, and the state in
the end would be the gainer to an Incal
culable extent.
In the general plan of the change of the
lease system to the system proposed It
should be provided that for the transporta
tion of convicts or material fur road build
ing, the carrier be paid in oonvlct labor;
also, that some plan of sxchange be ar
ranged whereby sections without materi
als—such as stone—for road building pur
poses might exchange convict labor for
material with other sections.
The engineer’s department would be re
quired to ascertain where the best materials
were to bo most conveniently had, the
amount neoessury for the work laid out, the
amount of convict labor (if any) to be ex
changed for it, and make arrangements for
transportation. This would, with the lay
ing out of certain roads and other necessary
details. be the preliminary work of the de
portment, which might at first be run by
one man. After the transfer, assistants to
the engineer, whose duty it would be to
supervise the construction of highways,
could be added to the department as neces

to tell of his decline. He is said to be pining

Certain Charlestonians Accused of
Atdlnsr and Abetting the Sharks of
New York in Trying to Force the
State to Rec agnize Fraudulent Bonds
and Secure Their Payment.
Columbia, 8. C., Oct. 21.—Gov. Tillman
returned from New York last night, having
been on a visit to the metropolis with State
Treasurer Bates with the view of making
some arrangements toward tbe refunding
of the state debt. Being requested to state
tbe result of his mission, he dictated the fol
lowing statement for publication:
‘•As it is a matter of general public In
terest, nnd the people are keenly alive to
know the result of our visit, as far as I oan
I will make public the exact condition of
the matter.
“There is evidently a strenuous effort be
ing made by the holders of the old fraudu
lent bonds to force the state at this critical
peri id into some sort of recognition ot their
claims, and I am sorry to say that some of
our own people in Charleston are lending
aid and comfort, and are iu combination
with the New York sharks who tattooed on
the state’s misfortunes during the recon
struction era.
“To further their object a telegram was
sent from Charleston, and was published in
the New York papers the day after we
reached there, asserting that we were in
favor of the issue of the C , per cent, bonds
to redeem tho 6 per cent. Browns, and the
issue of the new bonds to the amount of
$1,250,0(10 to take up the fraudulent bonds.
“Of course ttds falsehood was read in
New York, aud it had the effect of direct
ing attention to tbe existence of the old
fraudulent debt and lent color to the charge,
which met us in every direction, that the
state at one time had repudiated its obliga
“Then we found that political Influences
had been and were still at work throwing
every obstacle possible in the way of the
success of our mission,
“In addition to that, the weight of the
financial centers of the state were against
us. Owing to the virtuul cessation of busi
ness, produced by the Columbian celebra
tion, and tbe feeling of unrest aud distrust
whioh exists because of tbe uncertainty
as to whioh party will be
victorious in the coming election, we found
capitalists unwilling to make any offer
which we oould accept; aud, therefore, after
having formed the acquaintance of and dis
cussed the situation with some of the lead
ing financiers on the street, we determined
to return home aud wait ufttil after the
“I am not at all discouraged by the obsta
cles which 1 have shown to exist, and unless
theßepublican party is victorious in the pres
ent contest, aud carries both House and Sen
ate, I have every reason to believe that we
will have no trouble in arranging the refund
meat of the debt to the satisfaction of the
general assembly.
"Of course if all three branches of tbe
government fall into the bands of tbe re
publicans it would foreshadow interference
with local control by the southern stales of
their governments and make capitalists
very shy of investiag in our securities, and
it is the desire to await the result of tbe
election more than anything else which has
prevented our aooomplishing what we want
to do.
"I would say for the Information and
benefit of the conspirators who sent the
telegram from New York the night we left
there— ‘which stated that Gov. TiUmaa did
not accomplish anything in the matter, and
it might as well he ■ understood, first ami
last, that nothing of value can be accom
plished until provision is made for the non
fundible bonds’ —that they and the ‘southern
capitalist* who are now trying to do what
they can,’ who at e evidently in collusion
with each other, will have their labor for
their pain 9.
“The debt will be refunded by Dr. Bates
and myself or not at all, and their med
dling will only result In harm. The state
will meet all its honest obligations dollar for
dollar —if wo are not thwarted by all the
influences which I have mentioned, and the
result of the eleotion—but never a oent by
my advice or approval wi 11 go to pay the
fraudulent debt.”
Gov. TiUmaa also found time to say a
few words about politics as he saw it in
New York. He said that as far as he ceuld
judge, the outlook for the success of the
Democratic party was favorable, and the
politicians be met were sanguine of Cleve
land's eleotion,
“Being a stranger to New York meth
ods.” said the governor, “I had to rely on
the expressions of opinion by those with
whom I talked. I met some of the Tam
many leaders with whom 1 ‘fit, bled and
died’ at Chicago, and they expressed con
fidence in the situation.
“I called on Mr. Cleveland aftar I had
learned that he had expressed a desire to see
tne, ami I had a very pleasant half hour
ohat with him.”
The Prospects Very Rosy—Tho Open
ing Four Weeks Off.
Columbia,S. C., Oct. 21.—Secretary Hol
loway was in the city to-day, and be said
that the prospects for the state fair are very
rosy. The fair is four weeks off, but
already 150 horse Btalls and 155 cattle stalls
have been engaged. To give an idea of the
extent of the entries in addition to the
horses and cattle he mentioned that two
ladles from Illinois have sent in a list of
entries numbering 140 different articles,
while notice has been given by ladies from
Virginia, Missouri, Kansas and elsewhere of
largo exhibits of fancy work.
Luring Brown, the famous Georgia poul
try man, will have a large exhibit of poul
try and, from all indleatious, the exhibits
In this department will be finer and larger
than ever, which is saying a great deni, for
Mr. Brown pr nounced the display of two
years ago the finest he had ever seen in all
his travels.
The fair will begin on Nov. 14, and con
tinue throughout that week. Exhibits must
be entered by Nov. 11.
The Columbia Fair Association has ar
ranged to have Paine give a first-class dis
play of pyroteohuies. The piece contracted
for is the great, spectacular presentation of
“I'nrls From Empire to Commune.” The
contract provides that Paine is to gve five
productions of t ,1s beautiful show, begin

formances will be given in the ravine just
in the rear of the fair grounds, where a
lake 150x50 feet will be provided for the
float ng of some of the pieees. Provision
will be made for 10,000 people.
In witnessing this grand speotaole the
audience is kept for more than two hours
face to facs with the constantly shifting
scenes and startling transformations of one
of the most eventful periods in the history
of France. The presentation of this real
istic pictorial drama involves the use of
an immense amount of soenery and mechan
ical paraphernalia and 300 persons to take

In the matter of the Briggs' case, the

to take action at the present time for the
following reasons:

assembly and of the presbyteries of New York,
is again before the presbytery, and the com

own hands.
2. In case the remedy in their own hands Is
not sufficient they will afterward have oppor

“I was over in Canada several years ego,”
said Col. Child to the Kansas City Times, "and
for good whisky and brandy at a low price I
want to say that the Dominion takes th ■ prize
I was in Windsor with a party of Missourians
one day, and with one of them I strolled about
looking at the town. Becoming somewhat
worn we began to cast about for a ;place
whereat to buy some brandy. We came upon
it very soon, I told the man in charge to llx up
two good pale Heunesay punches In my
travels I have tasted tbe decoctions of all lands,
hut I am sure a better mixture never tickled
the palate of man than that pale Hennessy
punch of Windsor make. I tossed a half dollar
out In payment, and with a last smack of my
lips started to go, when the barman called ms
“ 'Don’t forget your change,' he said, and
with that he handed 40 cents to me.
•• • What’s this?’ I asked. 'What is the price
of those punches!’
“ 'Five con IS each,' responded the man behind
the bar.
, 'I turned squarely around again, and bringing
my two fists down hard on the counter, I called
in stentorian tones:
• * ’Fill ’em up again !’
“When we got on the str et again we met
eighteen of our Missouri friends. I stopped
“ ’Come in here and do os I do.’ I said.
“The party followed me into tne place from
which I bad just emerged with my friend.
“ ’Give me a brandy punch.’ I said.
“Faeh of the nineteen who were with me made
the same request. Ia five minutes the seductive
mixtures were tossed oft and my guests were
wondering at my extravagance. I threw a
dollar on tbe bar, at which the man hshlnd
nuoded hi- thanks. My friends stared at me,
and one or theai asked what it all meant.
“ ‘Hennessey brandy punches sell at 6 cents
apiece in Windsor,’ I said with an air of
triumph. For an Instant there was not a sound’
Then my nineteen friends hit the bar with their
lints, and ia tones that oould be heard across
the Detroit river they shouted:

The Young Widow.
Sir Kdicin Arnold.
She Is modest, but not bashful.
Free and easy, but not bold:
Like an apple, ripe and mellow.
Not too young and not too old;
Half Inviting, half repulsing.
New advancing, and now shy;
There ie mischief m her dimple,
There is Sanger In her eye.
She has studied human nature;
She Is schooled in all her arts;
She has taken her diploma
Asa mistress of all hearts;
She can tell the very moment
When to sigh and when tn smile;
O, a maid is eernetimes charming,
But a widow all the while!
(Are you sad? How very serious
Will her handsome face become!
Are you angry ? She Is wretched.
Lonely, friendless, fearful, dumb!
Are you mirthful? How her laughter.
Silver sounding will ring out I
She can lure and catch and play you
As the aagier does the trout.
Ye old bachelors of 40,
Who have growa so bald and wise;
Young Americans of 20,
With the love-look In your eyes;
You may practice all the lessons
Taught by Cupid since the fall.
But I know a little widow
Who could win and fool you all.
From the Modern Novel.
Faithful to her promise, and with beating
heart, quotes tn* Boston Globe, she noiselessly
glided along the dimly lit corridor, in which
reigned the awful stillness ef death.
At tho door of the “blue chamber" she paused
for an instant, and, giving one swift, frightened
glance around, disappeared Into the recesses of
that mysterious apartment, within whose walls
lay hidden the silent family secret of Granmore
A moment later a sudden, piercing shriek
ran out upon the midnight air—a cry startling
in its agenixing wail.
Witheut delay the door was rapidly burst
open by the hastily-awakened household,when,
to their horror and amazement, a heart-rending
eight met their gaze.
Crouching in a corner, her ayas transfixed in
terror, lay Hester Hardrage, pointing to the
other ead of the room.
"Speak girl," cried her father, in a voioe
trembling with rage; "tell me what you have
"Father," she entreated, "do not reproach
me—be merciful, I implore you—l saw—a

A Kentucky man has a water spaniel that he
has taught to extinguish fire whenever it sees
anything burning. To test the little dog, a piece
of paper was ignited aud dropped on tho floor.
In an instant tbe dog jumptii upon it and very
quickly extinguished the flame by rubbing it
with its paws. The dog was tried with a
lighted cigar, with the same result.
A writer in Science 6ays that there is no
element of speech so variously prouounced in
dialect and by individuals as the letter R. All
varieties, he explains, are derived from a fric
tional emission of breath or of voice between
two surfaces in the breath channel It may be
made in the throat, in tbe gutteral passage be
tween the back of the tongue and the soft
pal ate, between the arched top of tbe tongue
and the roof of the mouth-common in the
United States, the normal R, produced between
the point of tne tongue and the upper gum,
and by transferring the sound from the tongue
to the lips so that R has the sound of W.
Another series results from a rattling organic
vibration instead of a mere friction of the
breath or voice.
Thb old corn field on the Washington farm at
Mount Vernon proved a veritable gold mine to
its owner during the visits of the grand army
men, says A ’.ate field's Washington- The
veterans appeared eager for mementos ot their
visit, and ears of corn retailed at 25 cents each
and held stiffly to that rate, as a man with a
gun was stationed at the source of supply to
prevent the flooding of the marfcet with stolen
property. Kansas farmers, who regularly put
corn into their fuel bins as well as their barns,
paid a quarter of a dollar apiece for ears of
corn which they would scorn to acknowledge as
tho product of their own farms. Next year
there will be a shabby, straggling patch in the
corners of many a western field, which tbe
owner will point to with pride as raised from
seed from the Mount Vernon farm, and aftoldcn
corn cob over the dining room chimney piece
will serve to remind the family of the old
mansion on tne Potomac.
The general superintendent of the life saving
service has just received Information of the
death of old Neptune, a horse that has quite a
remarkable history. He was the first horse
purchased by the government for the life sav
ing service, and for twenty years past, regard
less of wind or weather, he fa thfully performed
the duty of carrying the midnight patrol at the
Arrategue Beach station to the limits of his
post, a distance of !3Vy miles. He learned the
limits of his beat so well that, however dark or
stormy toe night, ho knew at once when he
reached there, ad no amount of persuasion
would cause him to go turther. At the time of
his purchase he was a beautiful iron gray, but
the hardships of the beach and advanced aged
turned him snow white. Old Neptune on num
erous occasions renderet valuable assistance in
saving life. lie knew Ids duties so perfectly
that he was regarded as a most important ad
junct to the crew. The men beoame very much
attached to him and gave him an honorable
burial on High Hill, Va.. within sight of tho
beaten track whereon be bad passed the beet
part of his life. ,
The substitute for gla*s brought to notice
some time ago by a tnanufa Direr in Vienna,
Austria, oh- erves a writer m tne New York Sun,
is pronounced a practicable tiling, likely to be
introduced as valuable for certain purposes.
Tue article is produced by dissolving from 4 to
8 pans of collodion wool in about 100 parts by
w eight of ether, or alcohol, or acetic ether, and
with this are intimately combined from 2 to 4
per cent, ef castor oil and 4 to 10 per cent, of
rosin or Canada balsam. This compound, when
poured upon a gloss plate and subjected to the
drying action of a current of air of about 50*
cent., solidifies la oomparatively short time
into a transparent glass-like -beet or plate,
the thickness of which may he
regulated as required. The sheet
or plate so obtained has substantially the same
properties as glass, resisting the notion of salts
and alkalies and of dUuteacida, and like glass,
is transparent and h-s no smell. Again it is
■aid to be pliable or flexible and infrangible to
a great degree, while its Inflammability it much
lesa than that of the collodion substitutes. Any
desired color may be imparted to the compound
by admixture ot the necessary pigment, the lat
ter to be soluble in the solvent used in the pre
paration of the compound, if incorporated
therewith; but color may be Imparted by sur
face application, aniline dies being employed,
and thus the sheets may be used in Ueu of
stained glass.
Frederics G, Geeree, n German professor
of zoology and comparative anatomy, the au
thor of that remarkable book, "The True De
scent of Man," ia the high priest of the extraor
dinary doctrine of man,‘the noblest work of
God,’' being a descendant of the bear' At one
time, says tho Bt. Louis Republic, this professor
of p culiar views occupied the chair of compar
ative anatomy at Williams College. Williams
town. Mass., and may do so even to this day for
aught I know to the contrary, Speaking of his
theory as opposed to that of the descent from
apes, which he says has been falsely called
the "Darwinian theory," he says: "An
ape has none of the characteristics of
a man. An ape imitates-a man reasons An
ape has four hands, all of which are unlike
either the bands or feet of man. Apes are Idiots,
something that cannot be said of tne vary low
est orders of mankind. I say that man has de
scended from bears, and 1 can prove it. In a
museum at Paris I saw the skeleton of a cave
bear, which I examined very closely. I was con
vinced at the time that the animal bad a par
tially developed knee-pan, aad since that time I
have given the matter much study. I went over
In my mind to a time beyond the hlsterv of
man. * * * I remembered that ske etons of
primeval man had been found in eayes with
bears • * Another thing, nearly all
skeletons of primeval man are of
gigantic size. The bear Is nearer
the size of a man than the average ape. and
could have gotten rid of his little fragment of a
tail much more easily than an ape could of his.
My Idea is that the earlier bears came down
from the north, probably through Bering
straits, and drifted toward the tropic shores of
Asia on icebergs. As these melted the bears
easily found shelter on islands and along the
coast of the mainland, in the course of ages
great floods came and the bears sought shelter
in caves. In the meantime great changes had
been going on: the hear had been gradually
shedding his heavy coat as a result of exposure
to tropical heat; he had also learned to walk on
his hind feet. In the caves, in the dry, warm
atmosphere, other changes took place. The
connecting link was a kind of a hairy, inde
scribable man. who lived and diet in these
caves beside his elder brother, the bear."
