There is genuine- anxiety pervading the community in regard to the South it Western's Marion connection. There is some- talk of having another meeting of our citizens to discuss the matter, Mr. Carter was in town Tuesday night but the committee appointed at the previous meeting t ) interview that gen tleman failed to see him owing to the absoueo of some of the members, As tlio mutter stands at present the most -we cun hope for is a spur connec tion. No oue ever anticipated the possibility of missing tho main line through Marion, consequently much surprise as well as regret is shown at the probability of missing the town by at least two or three miles. The construction camps still oontinue to receive daily accessions to their numbers. A car load of negroes came in Monday on the Charleston Division of tho Southern. Commissary supplies continue to land here by the carload and the con tractor's wagons are kept busy all the time. Tho camps are reported as in good health, very littlo sickness appearing so far. Two or throe members of the Southern's surveying corps were re ported sick but we only heard of one being removed to his home. Marion Democrat. THAD. A.

Ti Tisiil bust nf the t-oiif'odcratc Congress. Many ot tne Donteueracy s son were very robust physically well as iu ellec tnally. Although all its cabinet and its Heuate have departed, a few of the members of its House of Iiepresenta tivt'S survive. Theso are: Roger I'ryor, of New York city; A. 8. Colyar, of Memphis; William II. Tibbs, of Dal ton, (ia. ; John Goode, of Washinton I). C. ; llirum P. Bell, of Camming (la.; John M. Martin, of Ocala, Fla, John V. Wright, of Washington, D. C, anil Joseph 11 Heiskell, of Memphis. Smno of these served also in the Con federate army, among them being Gen I'ryor, Col. Martin, Col. Tibbs and (leu. Heiskell. Borne have held big public station since the war. Judge Pryor was on the New York Supreme bench for many years, and has been promincut in the social life of the Slitto and city. Messrs. Colyar, Goode and Bell have served in the Congress at Washington. Mr. Colyar is a well kuowu ex-jonrnalist.'and is the author of a life of Andrew Jackson. Judge I'ryor was iu the National Congress just before tbja war. Judge Wright whs iu Congress from 1855 to 1801, through the Becood half of Pierce's presidency and the whole of Iiuc Italian's. These ate the living members of the Confederate Caugress whom the writer jt this article has been able ,to trace out, though it is possible that one or two have eluded his search. It is loubtful if the National Congress of 1 -;.". which had a much larger mem bership than the Coednferate body, can muster so many survivors, propor tionately, today. Leslie's Weekly. - A Manly Type of Hero. The newspaper man looms big and strong in our vigorous modern life, taking often a man's part on many fields to which duty has sent him. . Not too frequently, he is pictured effective ly and justly in fiction by a pen that has had its training in actual news paper work the modern school of the noyelist. We have a fine example of just this sort of intelligently vivid character drawing in a new story of action, 'The Fortress," by Will Lev ington Comfort. This strong, human novel appears in the September issue of Lippinoott s Magazine. Mr. Comfort won bis spnrs in the States, and when he left the office of the Pittsburg Despatch to go to Man churia as war, correspon ent he was chock-full of energy and briftling with experience. Of course, he succeeded, and all who followed the news columns will read with fascination the spirited tale of love and war that grew ont of this young reporter's dash for Port Arthur. It breathes the air of battle. Its descriptions of assault, repulse, conques, and famine are so faithfully pictorial that tbey form, really, a con tribution to the inner history of the Russo-Japanese struggle. The peculiar romunce of the novel centres in the fact that three of the four leading characters are war cor respondents one a daring, plucky, lov ing little woman wno uoes precisely and completely just what a wholesome and determined American girl would be expected to do not only penetrates to Port Arthur and makes a great news beat," but "sooops" several desirable hearts into the bargain. It is a refreshing thing to notice that the power of the newspaper press to mould sterling and sturdy character, aggressive and perseving manhood and womanhood, is so impressively drawn in this lively novel "The Fortress." Lippinoott's magazine has presented in this September issue a work of fiction worthy of wide reading. It is sure to create comment. 11 Y COllMEllCIATj A1TKAL. The Free Tress is fer prohibition and agin licker.and now is the time to sub scribe. Ye editor is again prohibition nd fer licker, and now is tho time to subscribe some more. A prophet is not without honor save in hisown country. We can't leave this here bum town because they say they air going to quarantine agin uo as suspected character. But we have property rights here and we air coming back if we have to swear out a super- seedeas addituni. We have refused licker ads for sever al years, but wo ain't never been what is termed a prohibitionist. That is to say we have never refused the whiskey and we have never published any lick or ads because we ain't novor got any. Down with the booze. We was over to tho Springs last Sun day and we lost all we had in aame of freeze-out to Dock Dnngan, the tavern keeper. We think it is an outrage that the Sunday law ain't no better enforced thau it is in this county. We want to notify tho authorities of thut here town that we expect to carry a package from now till frost, aud they needn't go arresting us no more. They skeered the whole town by calling our jag a suspicious case, and started the report that we must have been bit by a muskeeter. They put us under a mus keeter bar, and didn't know no better till we woke up and cussed the man what stole our flask. When we was to Memphis last week to see the game.we tried to get a drink of ice water (now laugh, darn you) but them fans were sotting up nothing but root-hog-or-die beer, and after we drunk it we come so near dying that we couldn't root at all. The auti-licker people have give us our release. They say tdat a editor what boozrs up whenever he gets chanct and has to be sent home twict a week on a dray ain't no genuwine ene my of licker; and yet wo have fit mor booze an' any of 'em. we nave oeen ast to run fer guvnor of Tennessee agiu Cox and Patterson, but we have got ourself in a hole on this licker question. If we run as a licker candidate the prohibitionists will fight us.and if we run as a prohibition ists the licker men will make us drink the bitter pill of defeat to the dregs. And we can't run on no red raven bro-mo-selzer platform; so we guess we will have to pass it up. Is this here a free country or is it Rooshia? The tin-horn board of health of this bum town come around to our idiotorial sanctum the other day, and said they had reason to believe that our nose was full of yaller fever muskeeters and they would have to pour coal oil over it, and then screen us until the danger had past. We ain't never been so insulted since a barkeep down to Memphis refused to extend un the cour tesies of press and credit us with "handle" of red licker. We air fer the peepul all the time, and believe in honest elections, but our side must be allowed to ruu 'em. If there is to be any ballot-box stuffing we air the boys to do it. If ve don't git thrfce-fourths of the election officers that little cloud in the sky no bigger'n a highball will turn into a reg-ular cy-i clone.

H. H. Kirkpatrick Ii A measly trick was played on ns the other night at an anti-licker meeting in this here bum town. A sign was nailed up at the front door as follows: "Gen tlemen will please leave their flasks with the doorkeeper until the mooting adjourns." Of course we ware not go ing to oe searcueu aud let go of our flask, and so they said we was tirrautor to the cause and wouldn't let us in. Wo was insulted the last time we was to Memphis. We was glued to a lamp post on the corner when one of theso here carts what spits water on the streets came along. It slowed up just afore it got to us and then turned loose and squirtted water all over u. A lot of tlaru fools seed it aud set up a laff; but it ain't no joke to have water flung at you that way. When we cjniplaned to a policeman he Baid ho guest we needed a bath all right. The report that we air on the water wagon is a base attempt to assassinate our reputation and queer us with the licker element.
