Southern Railway Interests
Being Considered.
Coney Island, Aug. 22 ?The South?
ern Railway and Steamship Association
was called to order at 12:30 o'clock this
afternoon in a mooting supplementary
to that held here in July, wbon ques?
tions regarding rates and the continu?
ance of the association for another year
wore discussed.
Gen. ,T. W. Thomas, presidont of the
Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis
road, of Nashville, was chairman.
Secretary W. L. McOill, of Atlanta, re?
ported that the tentative agreement to
restore rates until September, aftor
tho cutting which prevailed from Juno
1 until the July meoting had been
signod by all but about a dozen roads,
which aro apparently waiting the out
coino of the present sosslon. As tho
meeting adjourned soon after roll call
until 10 o'clock to-morrow it it evident
tho session is to last two or three days.
Of the forty or moro corporate inter?
ests represented in tho association all
but eight were on hand at roll call in
the person of the presidont or promi?
nent traffic officers, the Atlanta and
West Point, the Mobile and Ohio, the
Seaboard and Roanoke and tho South
Carolina being tho most prominent
roads not putting in an appearance
In all about 100 Important officials
have thus far registered, and more are
expected, including President Spencer,
of the Southern railway.
A mooting of tho executlvecommlttee
was called for this aftornoon. It seems
probable that the association will bo
continued another year if present indi?
cations of harmony prevail, and Col. E.
B. Stahlman will ovldontly bo contin?
ued commissioner unless some oppo?
nents for the placa and the salary of
815,000 comes suddenly Into view.

But by Whom Dono Kx-Chler of Police
Morris Would Like, to Know.
Tuesday night somo miscreant tackled
ono of ex-Chiof of Police Morris' valua?
ble Jersey cows that was pasturing near
the ball grounds. Whoever ho was had
a discrimination because very few
people other than police attaches can
aiTord the loss.
Tho cow died from a knife wound in
her neck.
The question is now whether it was
a tramp who wanted to carve a steak,
or whether it was somo late utrayer who
crossod tho Held and. being attacked, In
self defense slew the brute in old arona
6tylo. Whichever way it turns out
Morris is a loser and the knlfo-wioldor
can gain no comfort when he realizes
that for such an action ho mltrht havo
commanded a large audience at so many
shekels per grand siand seat.

smooth the way for the passage of tho
Iloua i bill through the Senate that
corre Its tho error made in the tariff bill
relative to tbo rebate on alcohol in the
arts and sclenoes.
Such action, owing to tbo absence of
a quorum, can only be bad by unani?
mous consent. It Is understood that if
the bill does pass the Senate it will go
back;to the House In a very different
shape from that in which it left it. The
sugar men will amend it by tacking on
to it, as a rider, the McKinley bounty,
or the bounty for the crop of 1894 and
it is bot improbable that other amend?
ments looking to the protection of some
industries that suffered by reason of the
tariff- bill will be made to tbe bill. Tho
House will then bo glvon tbe alterna?
tive of agreeing to those amendments
or permitting the error referring to
alcohol to go uncorrected.
So many disturbing reports havo been

Masons, now the county 9oat of the
Spects. He is said to be in Canada at
the presont time.
The Indictments charge him with

careor for somo time, and asserts that
be has operated in New York, Boston,
