The action of the directors of the
Atlanta Exposition in voting down a
resolution recently made to open the
gates to visitors on Sunday, is not
only received with commendation by
the people of the South, but is at?
tracting attention throughout the)
country and favorably commented
upon by the Press in every section.
No one thing seems to have placed
the South in such a favorable light
before the country as the stand taken
by the directors for the observance
of the Sabbath. The Philadelphia
Telegraph commenting*on it, says:
One thiiiir may frankly and truth?
fully be said. In no part of this coun?
try today is the old-fashioned
American Sunday?-a day of secession
from secular labor, respectful quiet
and worship for all who are so in?
clined?so generally observed as in
the South. This fact is noted with
extreme gratification by Northern j
visitors already unhappily familiar]
with current practices throughout
this section and the West particular?
ly. There is to be no unseemly and
costly contest over opening the
Atlanta Expositionen the first day
of the week There was a feeble eiTort
in this direction, but it has been
speedily disposed of and in a charac
teristic way by the directory, which
unanimously "voted to postpone all
consideration of the subject. This
course is taken in defence to local
public sentiment and in accordance
?with fundamental ;American princi?
ples. Atlanta is a'very busy city six
days in the week; it is forging head
in every element of material pros
perity, but on'Saturday night, it lays
aside the tools of labor and refrains
from unnecessary trespass upon the
rights of those who toil. In this
respect the new South sets a health?
ful and inspiring example to the
reckless cities of the West, which
have almost abolished the American
Generafialahone is dead. The end
came pejjjef ally at a hotel in Wash_
; Tuesday, frorWnWfR'?^
of the paralytic stroke sustained by
him on Monday,'September 30th. He
was laid to rest after an imposing
funeral in the family vault 3$ Peters?
burg, on Wednesday. A sketch of I
him is given in another column. It is I
abrief statement of the history of his
life withottt eommentjupon the merits
and faults which he possessed?and
in that spirit news of his death has
been received for the most part by
those most disposed to criticise him
while he was alive. He had faults,
but in the presence of death, Vir?
ginians for the most part laying aside j
all animosity which they had against
him in the past will prefer to remem?
ber the good that there was in him.
His great ability, his love for Virgin?
ia, his distinguished services to the
Confederacy no one questions?and
they go very far to atone for the
mistakes he made afterwards. Peace
to his ashes.
Virginia Day at the Atlanta Ex?
position has been changed from the
23d to the 22d of October, the day
before the time fixed for President
Cleveland's reception. Governor!
O'Ferrall and his staff and the |
military will leave on the 21st. The
Virginia commissioners to the ex?
position have been called to meet in
Atlanta on Virginia Day.
The Republican State Committee
will be called together soon to name
the successor of General Mahone as
chairman. Half a dozen names are
now mentioned in connection with
this place. The empty honor will, it
is believed, fall to Gen. James A.
The old Liberty Bell has been duly
installed at the Atlanta Exposition
amid great enthusiasm. From the
time it left Philadelphia until it
reached Atlanta, it was enthusiasti?
cally greeted at every point where a
stop was made along the route.
The paramount claim of the United
States to the harbor of the city of
Washington in the Potomac river
and Eastern Branch was maintained
by the Supreme Court of the District
of Columbia Monday over those of
all other claimants, of whatever
Judge Roger A. Pryor, of New York,
who has rendered a number of deci
sions since he has been on the bench
that have attracted widespread at?
tention by reason of their soundness,
has recently decided that licenses to
sell liquor are not property.
The Charleston News aud Courier
remarks, that if the Confederate
cause is a ''Lost Cause,'' it is evidently
not a forgotten one judging from the
number of Confederate reunions held
this year, especially in Virginia.
Sketch of O'enernl Mahone
Gen. William Mahone was born at
Monroe, Southampton county, Va.,
[ December 1,1.82(1, was educated at the
I Virginia Military Institute, from
which ho graduated in 1847, taught
school for two years and then began
the duties of his profession as a e vil
engineer as sxirvevor on the Orange
and Alexandria Railroad. Subse?
quently he became successively the
chief engineer of the Fredericksln;rg
and Orange Flankroad and chief en?
gineer of the Norfolk and Petersburg
i Railroad. Upon the completion of
the last-mentioned road he was elect?
ed president of the company, wh en
position he held at the beginning of
of the war. Immediately on the
secession of Virginia the subjec t of
this sketch was appointed by the
"Virginia Council" chief quarter
master of the Virginia forces. This
position he held for about ten days,
when he resigned and was appointed
lieutenant-colonel of infantry and
assigned to the command of the post
at Burwell's Bay, but before he ac?
cepted this position w;is made colonel
of the Sixth Virginia Infantry. Some
months later Colonel Mahone was ap?
pointed brigadier general, receiving
his commission from the Confederate
States government and placed in com?
mand of the troops of the Norfolk
district of the department of Norfolk
and so continued until the evacua?
tion of the department in May, 1802.
From 1801 to 1S04 General Mahone
continued iu command of what was
known as Mahone's Brigade, of which
the Sixth, Twelfth, Sixteenth and
Forty-first Virginia regiments were
always members and which up to
some time in 1802 embraced also the
Third Alabama Regiment, and after
the last-mentioned regiment was
transferred to another brigade had
another regiment, the Sixty-first
Virginia, added in its place. Receiv
ing a disabling wound in the battle
of Second Manassas, he was not with
his command again until just before
the battle of Fredericksburg. In
May, IStJ-J. General Mahone was elect
ed a member of the State Senate,
but did not take his seat in this body
until January. 18ii4, and then only
for a few days. When General Long
street was wounded in the battle ol
the Wilderness, on the 0th of May.
1804, Gen. R. H. Anderson was placed
iu command of his corps and General
Mahone in command of Anderson's
division, which was composed of live
brigades?General Mahone's, (Vir?
ginia.) Wright's, (Georgia,) Harris's
(Mississippi.) Sanuders', (Alabama,)
and Perry's. (Florida,) This division
General Mahone continued to com
maud until the surrender at A:>
pomattox Court House, receiving a
few days after the "Battle of the
Crater*' his commission as major
general, dating from that famous en?
gagement. July 30. 1804. After the
battle of the Wilderness he was ten
dered the appointment of major
general, with temporary rank, but
this he respectfully declined.
When the war closed General
Mahone*s many brilliant achieve
ments as a military commander had
brought him great fame. His name
was fast becoming a tower of
strength. He had to his credit the
battle of the Crater, the battle of
Johnson's farm, on the 22d of June,
1804, and the dash upon the enemy's,
rear at Alken's farm, on the evening
of August 11', 1804, an action in which
he bagged an aggregate of over 5,000
prisoners and struck the Federal
forces telling blows.
During the winter of 1804-5 the
people of Petersburg, in recognition
of his great services, presented him
with a sword, the venerable David
May making the presentation speech
at "Chester, near which place Ma?
hone's division was occupying the
trenches: The.twar over, Gener it
Mahone again turned his attention
to the business of railroading, was
elected pr?jj^ent of the Soufhside
Railro^id^ulfeyi-opf the Virgjrjffa ami
needed in consolidating 'these two
railroads with the Norfolk and
Petersburg Railroad, (of which last
mentioned road he had been presi?
dent for several years,) and organiz?
ing the Atlantic, Mississippi and
Ohio Railroad, of which he became
president, which office he held nni il
the road was sold m 1881. In 1870 be
was elected to a seat in the Senate of
the United States and served as a
member of that dody from M'arcu,
1881, to March. 1^87. "in 1880 he was
a candidate for Governor as the re?
publican nominee, but was deleated
by Hon. P. W. McKinney.
He Got the Pardon.
A Star reporter was told a story to?
day that illustrates the sentimental
side of President Cleveland's nature.
There was a certain officer in the ser
vice who had been tried by court
martial. In the opinion of the court
his offense deserved imprisonment.
The Department and the President
approved of the finding of the court.
The officer was sent to prison, and
was in a fair way to remain there un?
til the expiration of his sentence.
The member of Congress from his
district did all in his power to have
him pardoned, but it was of no avail.
The department said that he did not
deserve to be pardoned, and Mr.
Cleveland agreed with the depart
ment. All sorts of arguments and
every possible political influence was
resorted to with no avail. It was
useless, and everyone gave up except
the member of Congress who had first
taken au interest in the case. This
member went to the White House
regularly every two weeks for about
one year to make a formal petition
for pardon. The President was amia
ble with the Congressman, but al?
ways firm, and each time gave the
same answer. Then it came about
that Mr. Cleveland participated in
some dedication ceremonies in New
Jersey. In his address the sent:
mental spirit was awakened, and he
uttered some moving sentiments con?
cerning his mother. The member of
Congress read the address in the
papers the next day, and on the day
following that went at once to the
"I have come," lie said to the Presi?
dent, "to ask for th>> pardon of?"
"I know," replied Mr. Cleveland.
"I know what always brings you."
"Yesterday morning," the M. C.
continued, "1 read your address. I
read your beautiful reference to vour
mother. I have never read or heard
uttered anythiug which showed more
feeling or to equal it. Now, hear me
through. It was that which brought
me here this morning. This young
mau has a mother. She is now dying
of a broken heart. Unless this only
son is pardoned and goes to her at
once, he will not see her alive.?She
loves him above all things on earth.
His pardon may prolong her life a
short time, and it will render her
dying hours happy. In the .name ol
your own mother?the mother of
whom you spoke so lovingly?I ask
you to grant the pardon."
"I will," was all the President re?
plied, and the pardon was granted.?
The Virginia Democratic Associa?
tion of Washington opened perma?
nent campaign headquarters in the
Lenham building, corner Fifteenth
street aud New York avenue, Mon?
day. Virginians visiting that city
will be cordially received, and they
will find all the Virginia papers on
file, and get all the campaign infor?
mation up to date.
Will Raise Bread Prices.
All that appears now to be lacking
that will give the National Miller's
Association absolute control of the
prices and output of flour is the sign?
ing of their agreement, says a Buf?
falo, N, Y., telegram, which has been
formulated in detail. Aside from the
Northwest, Buffalo holds the key to
the situation, and vigorous efforts
have, it is said, been made to bring
the Buffalo millers into the move?
ment. There is now an overproduc?
tion of about 12,000,000 barrels of
Hour. Production is to be cut down
about -1.000,000 a year, and the trust
will impose 10 cents a barrel line on
all millers Avho refuse to comply.
Norfolk, October 8.?Mostly the
oysters coming here to the packers
are from the Rappahannock river,
the rocks in James river, Nansemond
river and Pagan creek hardly yield?
ing a profitable day's work to the
catchers at any time. Stock is scarce
and inferior in quality, and the
packers only expect relief when the
dredgers got to work on the upper
Chesapeake. The packing business
is not as large this year as last.

caused 250 farmers in the East Vir?
