Will Use Power From Caney Fork Falls - and. Carry, Passengers and Freight. Chattanooga, , July 4. A move rocnt is on loot to build an electric railroad from Chattanooga to Nash ville by an air line, to do a general freight and passenger business. Back of the movement are a number of wealthy Northern capitalists. These gentlemen have investigated the pro ject and have decided that it is feas ible, and it is reported directly from one of the interested parties in De troit, who states that he expects the project to be undertaken at once. It is proposed to utilize the power of the Caney Fork Falls in operating this road, if it is built. The propos ed .'kte would penetrate a rich tim-' ber and mineral State., section of the In response to a telegram irom tno Valley near Chattanooga, were visit Chattanooga Times, the following de- Ing at Mr. Will Bridge's Friday Satur tails of the project were received day and Sunday. from Detroit to-night: Mr. Sam Hack worth, is erecting a . ..m. t . ; . 3 4. new store building on Looney's Creek, "The Detroiters interested in the , .

Dave Pryor and Luthor Grant berland Coal & Lumber Company, Frank B. Trout, one of that compa ny, was recently in Tennessee look ing over the property of that con ; cern, which he says includes 5,000 acres of land, with coal and timber. While' he was in Tennessee Mr. Trout investigated ' the power re sources of Ciiney Fork Falls, with the result that he at once secured an Option on it for electric railway pur poses. He will use that power for a , short railway he proposes building ' from the mines to McMinnville. He , is now figuring with Cleveland and Pittsburg capitalists to construct an , electric suburban railway from Nash ville to Chattanooga " by a direct route, for the purpose a doing a freight and passenger business. 'I don't care if we never carry a passenger,' said Mr Trout to-day. If we run trains of cars at the top speed every day for a thousand years there would still be hundreds of tons of freight to be hauled out of that country. Lack ot transportation ' fa cilities is keeping that part of the i country behind. I am in communi cation with interested parties now and expect the road will be under taken at once."' 4 The officers of the Tennessee Coal ." . it Lumber Company are: President, Jlalph L. Aldrich; Vice' President, Elwood T. Hancc; Secretary, J. Mil ton' Earl; Treasurer, Lyman- W. Holmes. Directors Ralph L. Ald .rieb, Elwood T. Ilance, J. Milton Earl, Lyman W. Holmes, Thomas Wilson, Frank B Trout of Hamil ton, O., Davis Thomas, E. Matthews, ' Johu McDowell. AH these men are Detroiters except Mr. Hqlmes, who ' lives at Belding, Mich.- The following editorial from the Chattanooga Times gives a variety of points regarding the. feasibility of - the route." - "From Nashville to Chattanooga, ' as the bird flies is an even 100 miles. The feasible steam railway route is 152 miles. Going straight saves a , third on the distance covered by the steam line. , I an electric line, on i practically straight surface feasible? i Yes. Can the encrcrv be obtained from a water power on ; Caney river' Yes. Th'ov ascend 1,000 feet in a single mile in the Rocky moun tain region, and get practical results, The energy that lights Sacramento propels all of the town's street cars and other machinery, is carried fifty four miles from the falls of Sacra mento'river, this without appreciable loss. The only question as to this Nashville and Chattanooga proposi tion is, Will it be possible to get the business , that will make the line profitable? The short road from Victor to Cripple Creek, over Squaw Mountain, runs with full cars all the time, carries from eighty to one hun dred fares on a car and charges 30 cents the round trip of four and one half miles. It's a paying concern; but it has an assured, steady patronage, all that the capacity of the line will handle. This is the one question as to the profitableness of a line between Nashville and Chattanooga." Looney's Creek. Special to the News. . Mr. D. It.

He took lor his theme "That AH Men Are E qual ," and said if the Declaration of the Independence could be read every Fourth of July the country would be in nc danger. There are two theories of government, by force and by consent of the gov erned. The first is the oldest, the second has lived the longest. Love of liberty was planted in man's heart at the creation. All men have an equal claim on govern ment for justice and protection, the ignorant and poor needing a a larger share than the rich and educated. Selfishness, he said, was natural and ought not to be eliminated, for it is the foundation for self-preservation,- but men should be taught not to impose on each other. The Ten Command ments still cover all the range of human duties and needs. Speaking of unjust laws and taxation he said the amount of arceny by law far exceeds the a- mount stolen by criminals. lie pheld the income tax, giving an lustration of its practical work ings. . Touching the money question, e said, on one point all will tiree have the dollar as honest as possi- le. " A dollar above par is as dis honest as one below. He spoke scathingly of monopo- ies and trusts and said Congress only could deal with them. State aws suppressed them in one State only, leaving the other forty-four open to them. Of expansion and imperialism, he said: "Let ns expand our limits wherever we can find lands or peo ple to erect into States, but do not force in people who do not want to come in. God never made a peo ple so good that they could govern arbitrarialy another people. I want 1J men to love our nag not fear it: o look tip to it not bow down beneath it." The speaker closed with an elo quent and lengtny expression of hope that ournation will become great through peace and justice, be an example to the world and an arbiter among other nations.

'The Lamb That Strayed From The Fold," by Harry Davis and Sidney Carl ton, is a new ballad by writers in a new neld. Uoth of those gentleman are newspaper men and writers of repu tation, and their initial effort in tho song line promises to be Immensely suc cessful. The splendid story and beau tiful melody have eaught on in the theatres, and singers report many en cores wherever the song is sung and il lustrated. Tho publishers are also in receipt of strong press notices showing that it is becoming well known every where. The author of that most charming and popular of waltz songs, '-Grace O' Moore," has just completed a new and melodious waltz song, entitled "Rosa belle." We do not hesitate to predict that "Rosabelle" will catch the popular fancy, for it has all tho elements of catchiness. At Tony Pastor's cosey theatre one evening recently, Miss Louie Dacro, a favorite English Music Hall artist who comes from abroad with a splendid rep utation as a singer, and who writes and composes all her songs, introduced the above little comic idea to uproarious laughter and applause. The opening strains of the chorus in the "Oh! Oh! Ob!" song caught the house at once and it is now whistled on the streets now everywhere. Miss Dacre assures that the melody is an international hit and is beard everywhere in London as well. Lacalle, the famous bandmaster did not dream that his new march would spread around the country as quickly as it has. In the big Decoration Day and I'olico Parades In New York City, "Hur rah Boys" by Lacalle, and "On Duty" by Rosey, divided the honors in popu larity, each being played by the bands in line over 20 times. Now all the big vaudeville singers are using a fino vocal arrangement of the march, and itis this stirring and popular march which has just been published.
