THE SOUTHERN MUTUAL
Mr. Thomas Webb of this county has
obtained from Judge Clarke an iu junction
restraining the R. & D. R. R. Co., from
changing: the gnage of the N. (J. U. U.
track. ibis is the ostensible object of
the injunction, but it is really more com-
preheof ive in its scope, looking forward
to the cancellation of the lease, and a final
test of its legality.
Mr. Webb sustains his complaint by a
series f allegations to the number of
eighteen. We have not the space to
specify them. It is enough to say, that
establishing the fact of the usurpation of
power and authority by a combination
nf defunct officials, which he does in the
8.h allegation, he proceeds to show that
this combination, illegal as it was, in con
junction with W. A, Smith, their PreN
dent, and using the corporate seal of the
Company secretly, and without the kno l-
dge f die Stockholders generally, but
with the connivance of nniue holding laige
numbers of shares, executed a deed or
wiiting. denominated a lease, to the R. &
D. R: R. This lease transferred to that
Company for 30 years, "all the property
and rights of the N. C. R. R , at an an
nual rent $260,000. Mr. Webb contends
that this lease is void, that neither a legi
timate board of Directors, nor the Stock
holders, can delegate such powers, and
that the R. & D. R. R: Co., is a foreign
corporation, and cannot receive as proprie-
tor tbeS property of the N. C R. R. Co.
Thai it is beyond the corporate power of
the N.:U. Lload to grant the lease ; that
the rent stipulated is too small, and in
snfficieptly secured ; that the N. C. R. R.,
was designed as-a grand trunk of internal
improvements io the State, which idea
had been so far carried out that a car from
Wilmington or Newhern, may unload at
the foot of the Blue Ridge ; that the four
foot eight inch gnage was adopted, which
is the guage of all roads north connecting,
except the R. & D. R. R; that the R. &
D. R. R., propose to change the gnage
from Greensboro to Charlotte to five feet
to conform to the guage of the R&D and
the S C Roads, thus severing the N C
system, and entailing heavy loss of busi
ness and increased expanses of transport
tation.I The 14th allegation complains
that the resources of the N C R R estima
ted at five million dollars are made subject
to a debt of only four hundred thousand
subsidiary to the interests of the R&D
R R owning a track of 140 miles, and
heavily burdened w'rtn debt, &c , &c.
The 16;h allegation protests against
the surrender of the property of the N C
R R to the control of an irresponsible and
foreign corporation, &c., &c.
Whereupon, Judge Clarke granted the
injunction, restraining the defendants from
changing the triage of the road until the
further order of the Court, and requiting
the plaintiff to enter into bond in a sum
not exceeding 320,000.
We iliave made a synops'a as brief as
possible, Eut it leaves us no room for com
ment in this i?sne. It is a measure con
certed j;i?h deliberation, and framed with
great ability, aud is a formidable demon-
ft ration of the avowed sentiment of those
btockhhlders who feel and believe that
their rights have been bargained away,
and their interest? trifled wuh.

THE SALARY GRAB.

gress js examined the greater does its

advancing money to members on iheir
salaryi as their necessities lequired, but
a full settlement was imdeouly at the
end of the y.ur. In 18G7 a law was
passed providing that each member could
draw his salary at the end of each month.
The Sergeant-at-Arms draws from the
1 reasriry etirh month the amount neces-
, sary to pay Congressional salaries, and al
the end of the mouth the members are
paid by bim, he taking their receipt in full
for the! month. Under the operation of
the law of 1867 the Senators and Repre
sentatives in the last Congress had been
paid fh all but the lat month of their
term when the "back salary'' was passed
by them and had given tlieir receipt in
full, which receipt was held by the Gov
ernment. Lach Senator and member bay
ing given a receipt in full up .to and ins
eluding the last day of the preceding mouth
they go to work and pass a bill under the
pretense of giving themselves an increased
pay for the put two years, when in fact
they bad given a receipt in full for all
salary at the end of each month. Their
action? therefore, was simply voting them
selves $5,000 each as extra compensation
for the last.moutb of the term for which
they were elected. Under this rule, if
they can vote themselves $5,000 extra
for one month under the pretense of back
services, they can for every month of their
term, and there will be no end to the
"salary grabs" in the future unless those
who participated iu !.-" last are repudiated
and condemned bv their conbtituents.

A RAILROAD RING CONVULSED.
A Great Highway Stolen cn Destroyed.
Huntsxille, Ala., July 13 Not
more than & year ago Tom Scott (some
times called the Southern Railroad Secu
rity Company) leased the Memphis and
Charleston road, three hnndred miles long
from Memphis to Chattanooga. It was
stipulated in the lease that the road should
be thoroughly repaired, and supplied with
the mils and rollingstook, and given at
once a "first-class equipment." The road

may never consulate a route competing
wuh fcntt 0 more cosily lines through the
Citroliiias aud Georgia to Vicksburg,
Shreveport, New, Oi leans, Texas, and
the Pncfic. In other words, it is believed
that Scott leased the road to destry it, aud
the contract of lease defines no penally fi r

understood 'when the lease was made that
Scott had contracted for the Memphis
and Little Rock road, which was to be ex
tended at once to Shreveport, and thence
across lexas to the Pacific, bew York
Memphis thus became a point in the short
est line from New York city to Marsal,
Texas, the initial point of the Texas
Southern Pacific. But Scott has utterly
refused to have aught to do with the road
in Arkansas, and is certainly destroying
the road valueless as managed between
Memphis and Chattanooga. In very truth
it is generally believed that Tom Scott
and Newcomb, of the Memphis and Lou's-
vine, una aicomo the three owning
nearly all the railroads in the States
11 1 a
have combined to destroy Memphis and
crush the Memphis aud Little Rock road,
and thus prevent the extension of the
road from Memphis to Shreveport. The
result of this state of facts and of this al
leged fraudulent conduct on the part of
Tom Scott is the preparation of a bill to
be filed in the United State Court at
Huntsville praying that the contract with
Tom Scott's rinr be set aside, and that
Scott's agents Sacqucs and others be
enjoined from the further destructive use
of the road ; and the prayer is that the
whole'property be placed in the hands of
a receiver till the validity of the contract
or lease be determined The stockholders
of the road who leased to Scott, meet
here on the 29th instant, and there will
be a terrible struggle to control the action
of the body by Scott's friends and enemies.
I am persuaded that by the time this
meeting occurs Scott will own a majority j
of the stock, and that an end of the road

preached having reference to the subject
of the early hisiory and rapid growth of

The Conference of 100 years ago was

the word is now used, noedid the preachers

John Wesley, in 1739, at the solicitation
of Whitfield, who had preceded him in
the work, tegan his ministries as a field-
preacher ia England, he had no design of
organizing an ecclesiastical syptem outside
and independent of the English church,
of which he himselflived aud died a mem

as an evangelizing supplement to the Es

to do nothing which would look like dis

Speaking of iho organization of the Con

as there ever before an instance of an
army changing, by election, the whole
body of its regimental officers on tho very

Note. A Marion paper says: An affray
occurred in Rich Valley on Thursday last
which resulted iu the death of one of the

which they had a misunderstanding, and
that Combs went to Phipp's house to see
him about it, when a quarrel ensued and
Comb drew a pis5d and shot Phipps, the
balls taking f fleet n the abdomen, caus

zen of Washington. During bis stay the
daughter of the gentleman referred to, re
marked that she had heard a pleasant
thing aboul him (the Prriident). ( The '
Presided inquired to what she referred.
"I have been told by an joflicer who, serv

he had been with you under many trying
circumstances, and in n single instance,
no matter what the provocation, bad be
ever known you to make one of profane

especially in view of the fact that profanity
is raid to be the rule, and Lot the excep

modestly replied ihe President: "Ehavo

Frsi-R. The fence law of Texas bas
hitherto been a very curious one. Kverj
man was required to fejice against bis
neighbor's stock. In other words, jt was
required 10 fence out atock instead of
fencing them in. A bill' introduced into
the Texas legislature p eposes to change
this, and make a farmer fence in but cattle
instead of fencing out those of his fceigb
bor. Georgia also hat just passed a law
at 011 this subject, one very important to an
a agricultural cornminity. 'Under the stat -
ute. the boundary line of each lot or parcel
' of land is te be considered a lawful f-nce,
' and no animal ned to fit food orj labor
will be allowed to run at large beyond the,
limits of the land of the owucr.
