"hospital; salary of the superintend-1
ent, $5,000; and salaries of the regents, j

that purpose.
The Senate amendment did not hav
! the force and effect of cnangmg tn
provisions of th bill in any respec
whatever, but it was a mere pro
posal. which could only 'become ef
fortivo in case it was accepted by th
house. The house, however, refuse
to concur in the amendments, thus ne
cessitating their submission to th
committee of free conference,
j Furthermore, when the senate re

the effect was th same as if it hai

thousand seven "hundred and fifty-eight
men in the employ of 'Southern Railway
company, representing all ranks
! and all classes from general officer to
' blacksmith helper, who have exceed
j ed years or continuous sennet? vu
1 the road, will shortly be awarded a
' medal by President Fairfax Harrison
| in recognition' of t'heir achievement and
| to commemorate tlieir honorable reci
ord. The presentation (x the medals
! will be made personally by Mr. HarriI
ecu to all those entitled to chem during
j the next two weeks. In announcing
! the plan, the following statement was
j issued by President Harrison:
i "Southern Railway company has in
i its service 1,758 men of all ran'Ks and
i classes, from general officer to blacksmith
helper, who have exceeded 25
years of continuous service on the
road. There are indeed, 34 men who
j have exceeded 50 years of sucn service,
,! and it Is also of interest that there are
| 235 negroes on the list. These men are
I the best men the company carries on
t its rolls, for they have proven their
j loyalty and their fitness '.'or their several
responsibilities in the ' hard
! school of experience and by survival
' of the strict discipline which is neces
sary in the administration of a railroad
". To recognize their achievement and to
' commemorate their honorable record,
j the company has arranged to award
i each one of them a medal which they
j can wear to long as they live and hand
! down as an heirloom in their families."
..; The medal is of hronze, of highly
.! artistic and success ul design. It is
.'the work of the clistinguisnea scuiyior
. Victor Brenner of New York, who was
1 recommended to the company by the
: United States director of the mint. /The
% artist is -best known, perhaps, for his
! design of the current Lincoln peany.
| The obverse of the medal bears the
j | inscription, "Southern Railway Com.
nnnv 'For T.ovaltv/' and shows an
actual scene on the road; a section of
! modern double track equipped with
; automatic signals, with an all steel
5 passenger train running through the
j mountains o." north Georgia. Presi-j
,,; dent Harrison's plan was to show a
j typicay industrial scene with a 'factory
in the background, but the sculptor
would not agree that a factory was capable
of artistic treatment and ensistjj
ed on mountains. It is, however, for?
tunate for the company and for those
8 who will wear the medals that ttiere
are factories on .the line as "well as
? scenery.
J The reverse of the medal shows
tviw of modern railroading: I
} a telephone dispatcher at his ewitcliboard,
a section gang engaged in main'
tenance and a large heavy power press
. to represent the shop crafts. Thus
each principal branch of the service
is indicated. On the reverse is also
. engraved the name of the man to whom
5 the medal is awarded, with the dates
en" his service record.
