A number of horses in Wadsworth's

About the most sensible and com

be called genuine philanthopy, and
there is a splendid lesson in it which

THE PITH OF PROGRESS.
WE GO -FORWARD Oil
Some thonsrhtti that Suggest Them
selves on the Jfecessities of the Hour,
and which Charlotte People Ought
to Profit by
Years agone Charlotte had a railroad
"boom," and if we were asked to-day to
give a reason, why she has prospered
more than many of her sister towns
and cities we should unhesitatingly an
swer that her railroads did a large part
of it. We should go further and say
that the four hundred thousand dollars
the city and county have subscribed to
these railroads, which put new life into
the veins of the people, has been return
ed to us again and again already, and
the probabilities are that we cannot
measure the importance of our railroad
investments in the future. "Like bread
cast upon the waters it returns to us
after many days." But it is not of this
particularly that we desire to speak
For the past year or two it has looked
to many of us like Charlotte had reach
ed the period of her existence when she
would cease to grow. But just now,
notwithstanding the bad crop year of
last season, she is beginning to take on
a new lease of life. The people of the
city have been penned up for three
months within our corporate limits by
the wretched system of public roads in
vogue, which permitted the mud to be
come bottomless, and thus prevented
our country neighbors (not only of
Mecklenburg but of neighboring coun
ties) from having intercourse with us.
The goods of our merchants have laid
upon their shelves, while country peo
ple, until the last week or two, have
been unable to get to town to buy them
But a spirit of improvement is abroad
and public sentiment has been
aroused until we are satisfied that some
thing will be done. Although the reso
lution has only passed the Chamber of
Commerce, we are satisfied that an ef
fort is to be made to re-enact the "Alex
ander" road law, and that its exactions
will be met in a liberal spirit by the
people of the .towns as well as the
county. Not only so, an effort is to be
made to carry an appropriation of
$100,000 in bonds to be used in addition
to the funds raised, and the labor pro
vided for under the aforesaid road law.
Our people are too progressive not to
look the matter squarely in the face,
and for them to will is to do.
Then Charlotte herself is moving still
further in another direction. Thirteen
thousand dollars has just been appro
priated out of the city treasury, and
every dollar of it is there now, to im
prove her own streets and sidewalks.
Her municipal authorities in this mat
ter are alive to her interests, and while
the tax may in some cases be hard to
pay.it will return to her merchants and
business men a hundred fold. It is to be
spent right here among us, and the
business man who can't gobble up his
share of it, as it passes along, had bet
ter close up his shop and move into a
ess enterprising community.
Again, Charlotte looking to her in
terest in another direction, under the
auspices of energetic men, is soon to
have water works not in name only.
but in fact. Her streets are to be lined
with hydrants from which a stream of
water can be thrown over our highest
buildings, the value of which in case of i
fire, cannot be estimated. Then, the
water works" will call for a system of
sewerage, which will make us, already
healthy, the healthiest ity in theSouth.
But this is not ail. We are taking
steps to introduce the electric light for
the purpose of illuminating our streets,
and it will probably be introduced into
many of our private buildings. A com
mittee representing the city have the
matter in hand, and are negotiating
with the Brush Electric Light Com
pany. Uetore anotuerrear it is to be a
All these things give evideuce that
there is renewed life and confidence
among the people. As if by their in
spiration the Metropolitan Hotel is to
be added to, remodeled and refitted.
Col. Johnston will shortly tear away
the old rookery at the corner of Tryon
and Fourth streets and erect thereon
three magnificent; stores, whljjh have
already ben rented. Gratz Springs
will probably pull down those old wood
en eye-soreaon Tryon street justbelow
the Central hotel, and in their place
erect nevv and handsome buildings.
Mr. Carson will remove the old wooden
buildinsp corner Tryon and 4th streets,
nearly opposite the Opera house, and
put up a large fine building in fts stead.
Further down Tryon street Mr. Harty
It is said, will make some perma
nent improvement and Dr. Gibbon will
probably erect a handsome building
on the lot opposite the Second Presby
terian church. Besides, these improve
ments on the rnahi "streets there are
very many smaller ridenees to be
built in different portions df the city
the coming building season.
We have alluded to these evidences
of our progress to say there is just one
more step to be taken, and to say which
we commenced this article, and that is
that we need and must have a flrst
class graded pol, Wha we have
now is much better than none; indeed
it is a step forward, but it must be built
up, supported and maintained until it
shall become the best in the country.
We have the law to make it; we have
the means to build it up and support it;
we have the children to educate in it.
Our people have said by their votes
that they are willing to be taxed to
maintain it, and we have only to move
forward to see it done. And we must
move on. No progression' is virtually
retrosression. 1 w e do not go forward
we must go backwards. But the spirit
of enterprise that ia in our people
makes us firm in the conviction that
we shall move out on the plane of pro
gress. We already have two good cot
leges male and female but we want
a rood high grade preparatory school,
open to the masses, equipped and offi
cered with the best school apparatus,
and the most efficient teachers obtaina
ble.- , '
. We only sound the notes of prepara
tion to-day. but we want it understood
I that the people of the city need and will
have such a school. Injunctions have
lost their grip, and whoever stands' in
the way will be mowed down like grass
before the sickle. It Is one of the ne
cessities of the hour, and ite consumf
mation cannot be much longer de
Short of Rill. '
The paymaster of the Richmond and
Danville Railroad (Atlanta Division)
passed down the road some time ago,
expecting to return over the road last
week and pay off the employes of the.
company, but was delayed in Atlanta
on account of a scarcity of paper cur
rency. Before leaving Richmond
telegram was sent to the Atlanta banks
asKing if they coma rurnisn paper
money, and on receiving an affirmative
answer the pay train was taken to that
.point, when it was found that the paper
money could not be had, and a tele
gram was sent to New York, which
caused a delay in paying off. The At
lanta diyision jequires about $50,000
per month to meet the pay rolls. The
company had all the cash needed, but it
was in gold and silver coin, and as the
envelope system'is used in paying em
ployes, it can readily be seen what a
disadvantage the paymaster would
labor under to fyave to handle the
amounts. Of the $50,000 paid out
monthly by the company a good round
sum is left at the Charlotte office.
Accident on the North Road.
The Danville Register of Monday has
the following account of a remarkable
accident that occurred on the Richmond
and Danville Railroad, near News
Ferry, Monday morning:
Mr. .rat Dacey. tne engineer on a
freight train Coming South, became
paralyzed, ills fireman was outside of
the cab at the time and did not observe
that the engineer was paralyzed until
he noticed that he failed to. blow his
whistle on aDDroachinc the station. He
then went to him and found him sitting
aown, paraiyzea ana unconscious. Tne
fireman in great alarm closed the throt
tle and jumped off the locomotive re
ceiving some slight injuries about the
breast The engine rushed at its own
will without guidance and presently
ran into the rear of another freight
train coming this way. The collision
threw several cars (said to be eight)
from the track, doing considerable
damage, the extent of which has 'not
yet been ascertained.
The paralyzed engineer was put on
anotherStrain and brought on to Dan
ville where his home is. He was not
injured as far as known by the collision
but he remains unconscious from pa
ralysis and lies at his house here in a
