THE KEXTITKY EDITOR'S AU DPiUSS TO THE GRADIATES OP THE II I (J II SCHOOL. THE DAWNING OF THE NEW DAY. An Emphatic Conclusion Against Women's Suffrage Drawn By the Speaker. Louisville, Ky., Dispatch : Hon. Henj'y Wattersou, editor of tho Cour-icr-Journal. delivered the address to the graduate of tho Female High School here to day. After a graceful introduction tho speaker said : "I have always rejected tho conceit that the man is the oak and the wo man the vine. That is a figment of a very vain, one-sided and masculine imagery. The woman is tho man's prop and support, as tho man id the Woman's physical shield and huckler, and neither could dispense with tho other. Happily for botlr lhis view of the ease has made such progrtssin modern ethics and iiiii-ng civilized nations that we seem to have' reached the border land of h new world, which promises to unravel the tangled web of human error and to solve the Old World's proMcm of the sexes. "That in the worst of times woman was a power, weknow;but she was not always a power for good. It may hi doubted whether upon the roman tic and sentimental side her force as an inspiration has been increased with her emancipation from feudal bonds and limitations. But there can be no doubt that the striking away of the shackles that so restrict! d her move ment has greatly enlarged her per sonal inllue'ice and intellectual posi tion, creating a new and potent pres ence by the very act which annihilat ed n phantom of the dark ages. I cannot believe that any man was ever the weaker for having in his wife un intellectual equal, and to the point of that intellectual equality I would edu cate the woman. The point at which I would mark a distinction between them and draw the educational line is solely and purely a moral point. "It is my firm conviction that no human being was ever benefi ted by familiarity with depravity. And I would, as far as possible, keep our women out of iv knowledge of the de praved side of human nature and human conduct. I do not mean to argue that point, but I am satisfied that their happiness as well as their domestic usefulness will be propor tioned to their ignorance of vice and squalor. God grant that these dear girls may never know what I know and what nil men know of the wicked ness which the great cities of the world evolve and exuded." From tli is promise Mr. Wattersou drew an emphatic conclusion against women's suH'rage. He said the proper ideal should al ways be womenly women ami manly men. He said : "I don't want to see my women loaf ing around the polls and sitting up at night with tho returns of the elections, not because I would deny them any right, but because, as far as my obser vation goes, that sort of thing 'is of questionable valuo to tho develop ment of male character, ar.d can cer tainty not coutributu much to en.ich the store of female virtue. To you, young ladies, who think that you havo just finished your education, but who are really just beginning it, let me say first, but anil nil the time, don't bo in a hurry. The world is all before you j take vour time in deter mining what you are going to do in life. "There is a prevailing idea very creditble in itself, but still a fad, that no girl should marry to get a living to bo taken cure of or to escape work. To the extent that, this means that every woman should be i-xcrnnt from dependence on anybody, I readily subscribo to it. Every woman should bo in her tiwn person independent ; it is no more of a disgrace for a woman to earn her living by honest work than it is a disgrsca for a man to earn his living by the same process." "But in the nature of the case a great majority of women will marry nnd ought to marry and in tny injunc tion don't be - in a hurry applies hero as elsewhere. Don't bo in a hur ry to get a lover; don't be in a hurry to get a husband, the woods arc full of them." The address concluded as follows : "Let mo, iu closing, congratulate you on the honors you have won in school ; rejoice with you that the tucks are about to come out of your dresses; anticipate with you and yourselves the beauty and the glory of your completed womanhood. "Tho school-room fades into the shadow of tho roof-tree, the roof-tree into tho midst of dreamland. The new day dawns with its high hopes and bright tints ; may it be a long and . happy day to each and every one of you." The Family Educator. Webster's Unabridged Dictionary is a great family educator, and no family of children ought to be brought up without having ready access to this grand volume. It will answer hun dreds of questions of each wide awake child. It is au ever present and relia The Richmond and Danville. Danville (V8.) Register, Juno 17th. Whatever the plansof the Richmond and Danville people may be in acquir ing tho Danville and New River road, we do not know, but we believe, db many others do, that it is a step to wards a road to tho west from Danvillo. In the first place, there was evidently some urgent reason for compromising Danville's claim, for bad the Rich mond and Danvillo simply wantod to operate tho Danville and New River as a narrow guage, it could just as well have done sit with the road in the hands of u receiver. A few pooplo who have looked well into the matter real ly believe that Danville would have won her suit in the United States Supreme Court. Unless, thereforo, the Richmond and Danville people are far more liberal than the are reputed to be, they had, wo repeat, some urgent reason for getting the Danville and Now River out of the hands of a re-cei-er in short this looks very liko the Richmond and Danville people want to broaden the guage of the road and utilize it in giving them a western line. The fact that the road will be bonded at $10,000 a mile, anil that the interest on these bonds is guaranteed by the Richmond and Danville, is an other indication that the guage will bo broadened, as we have already ob served. lint again, there is abundant reason why the Richmond and Danvillo should have a road from Danville to Bristol. Look, if you please, at a map of Vir ginia and North Carolina. You will rind that the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad, one of the finest roads of the South, terminates at Bris tol. This road is owned by the Rich mond and Danville, butjhaving no out let, except by way of Asheville, N, C, it is forced to dump its immense busi ness into the lap of the Norfolk and Western, a rival and antagonistic cor poration. More than that, the Rich mond and Danvillo has no coal of any consequence on its entire system of road, and this road to Bristol would put the Richmond and Danville in the coal fields and give an outlet for the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. The road would pass through a coun try which is rich in minerals, timbers and agricultural products, and JUr. James B. Paco told the writer two years ago that such a line would, in his opinion, be the best paying rail road property in the South. Now look at your map. The Rich: mond and Danville has practically completed its linn from Winston to Wilkesboro, N. C, and the distance from Wilkesboro to Bristol is only about sixty miles, A new line has al ready been surveyed from Danville to Winston and the Danville and New River to Cascade, and the line from that point to Lcaksville will put the Richmond and Danville far on its way to Winston, so that in order to get a line from Danvillo to Bristol, the Rich mond and Danville has only to build from Leaksvillo to Winston and from Wilkesboro to Bristol. When this line is completed, the guage of the Dan ville and New River could be boaden ed to Martinsville, where it would con nect with the Roanoke and Southern, and the line from Martinsville to Stu art could bo operated at small cost as feeder to the main line. This seems to be the inevitable plan of the Richmond and Danville, and it is plain that such a line would be of great advantage te Danville. It would not merely give the western road for which bIig has so long prayed, but would make Dltnville, in all probabil ity, the coaling station of the Rich mond and Danvillo and ono of the most important centres of its great system of roads. Two years ago, in referring to this matter, we remarked that audi a line as we uave now described would tie a God-send to Danville, and were severe ly criticised for expressing an opinion favorable to the Richmond and Dan ville line, but we now believe that the line will bo built, and we also believe, as wo believed then, that its construe lion will be the beginning of a new era of prosperity for the thrifty and grow ing city of Danvillle. Shameful Gift-Taking. Chicago Herald. John Wanamaker's ift of a $20,000 cottage at Cape May to Mrs. Benjamin Harrison and the latter's prompt ac eeptance of the gratuity easily make up the most shameful incident of an administration that has been more dis graceful and scandalous than anything the country has seen since the second term of Grant. It is bad enough that John Wana mttker, who raised a gigantic corrup tion fund in 18S8, should have been paid for his services by an appoint ment to the Cabinet, but it is even worse that he should characterize his official career by making such gifts to the wife of the man who placed him, and that his insulting generosity should be accepted without a blush. With this wretched example in bign places, we may look for a speedy revi val of gift-giving and gift-taking. It is an easy descent from cottages by the sea to bull pups and packages of green backs. The tone of the Harrison adminis tration was pitched lower than that of any other within the memory of the present generation. It entered the of fice bound and gagged by the corrupt and vicious elements of the party. It has gone speedily irom bad to worse. The gift-taking stage has now been reached. A year more and we shall hear of offices, a safe burglary or two, and probably a Ctedit Mobilicr and a TWO TALES. Sensational Rumor Followed the Truth. by Special to Nvs anil Courier, Cou'mma, June 10. The Evcniifg Record published the following sensa tional item, which is given for what it may be worth : "From excellent authority it was learned this morning that Mr. David Risley, a citizen of Georgetown, has instilued a suit in the court of Massa chusetts against the Massachusetts and Southern Construction Company of Boston, Mass., which has tho man agement of the Three C's railroad in charge "It appears that Mr. Risley was tho original promoter of the road known now as the Three C's and owned most of tho materials of the concern ; that he employed R. A. Johnson, t Sau- gus, Mass., to form a syndicate and se cure the capital wherewith to build the road. He went on to Washington in 1884 and met Col. Johnson in ccm- pawy with E. Howard. The latter rep resented himself to be the agent of the Massachusetts and Southern Construe- tion Company, its treasurer and a di rector. He represented the capital as $2o0,000, cash paid up, and gave refer ences as to himself. "The reference being satisfactory, Mr. Risley entered iuto an agreement with Howard, as agent of the Con struction Company, on tho 2'.th day of February, 1884, and by it Mr. Ris ley transferred all values ho possessed connected with the road, including the franchise, worth $2,000,000. After the company had secured this the agree ment was repudiated, and it is claimed that Howard -vas not tho company's authorized agent. Hence conies the suit. "Eminent legal counsel are on both sides, and the case will be tried in the court of Massachusetts. Gen. B. F. Butler and D. C. Trescott, both of Boston, have been retained for plain tiff, while Benjamin Johnson, a sou of the manager, and a Mr. Riney will represent the defendants. "The addenda amounts to $2,000,- 000. The report goes that the compa ny had not one dollar of legally paid up capital, and that Col. Johnson and Howard obtained the transfer fraudu lently. The parties swearing to the capital being paid in when the agree ment was made : E. Howard, Charles Whittier, Edwin P. Metcalf and Hi ram P. Blaisdell. "In the suit the plaintifftlaims that the defendants comply with the terms and conditions of the agreement, or that they restore the property trans ferred them, which involves the own ership of the franchise of the Three C's road. It is also reported that the management of the Three C's road has failed, and that the road is now in bad cjndition, but, if this is true or not, it cannot be ascertained. "The above facts are given as we heard them, and, if all are true, they will create a decided sensation, for all Southern people are interested in the Three C's road." THE AITUCATION OF MR. RISLEY. Columbia Register, June 17. The following dispatch, published in a Charleston paper three days ago, shows that the alleged news of the suit of David Risley is somewhat stale and not altogether accurate : "Boston, June 13. The Supreme Court has denied the application of David Risley, of Georgetown, S. C, to be allowed to increase the amount in a suit he had brought against the Massachusetts and. Southern Con struction Company. "Risley sued to recover $100,000 damages for alleged loss of prospective profits on a certain contract, upon which the defendant company denies any accountability. Risley applied to the court for leave to increase his demand to $1,250,000. After several days' consideration, the court dismiss ed the motion as sensational." Major J. F. Hart, of YorkviUe, the counsel for the road, was seen by a Register reporter and pronounced the reports circulated against the solvency of the road, etc., mistaken and mis leading. Entirely Too Expert. Kask Me llanuer. The Memphis Democrat says the growth of the Patterson vote in the tables of estimates published by the appeal is most remarkable. These taoles are compiled, says the Demo crat, in the Nashville American office to boom Patteison, and every time a new tablo is published more figures are taken'from the Baxter column to add to Josiah's imaginary majority. Says the Democrat : "But note the curious coincidence. Patterson's vote steadily climbs up in the Appeal's ta bles. Take Hamilton county, for in stance. After it had held its conven tion tho Chattanooga Times declared that of the forty-four voles of that county Baxter would receive at least thirty, Patterson would get about ten aad Buchanan four. In its Monday table Ike appeal divides the forty votes between Baxter and Patterson. In this morning' table it takes away five more of Baxter s votes anU gives them to Patterson, leaving Baxter only ten votes from Hamilton, thoagh the Chattanooga Times declared that Baxter was the choice of about four fifths of the Hamilton delegation.

A few days ago a dispatch to the Times from Kuoxvillc staled that General Manager Carroll, of the Queen and Crescent Railroad, was about to be succeeded by W. A. Vuughan, at present Superintendent of the Sagi naw and Mackinaw division of the Michigan Central Railroad. Tho re port was subsequently denied. A Times reporter learned last night that tho foundation of tho rumor lav in the fact that Mr. Vaughan was to be made General Superintendent of the entire East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia system. There seems to ho little question as to tho truth of the report. The gen eral siiperintendency of the East Ten nessee system there being no suck office now will undoubtedly mean the general siiperintendency of tho system when the Cincinnati Southcr.i and Alabama (Ureal, Southern divi sions of the Queen mid Orescent are under control of the East Teunessee. Mr. Vaughan is a resident of Bay City, Mich., and is a railroader of large and wide experience. It is said he was recommended to the position by President H, B. Ledyard.of the Mich igan Central.

Ths truth is, however, McMillin doesn't want tho oflico. lie would be foolish if he did. Ho has been in Congress long enough to make himself a power, and he is now on the verge of a national reputa tion and second to that of Mr, Car lisle.
