they would find, business brisk aud

depots; the manner in which the'city
hackmen approach a pagHpnrpr and

him whether it is his desire or not,
has become to be' a nuisance almost
unbearable. There Is an ordinance
hsgatnst the? hackmen trespassing
upon the .railroad property for any
/purpose and this law should be rig
idly enforced. There is no excine for
' its not being. Last night, at the Nor

arrival of the S:20 passenger train
from Raleigh, one passenger had to
actually kick his way through the
crowd qf transfer men, ? and ? t&is

worse for his experience. As soon as
"he alighted from the train ihree or
four colored hackmen made a dive
for him. All, of course, wanted to
take him to the hotel; all wanted the
dough" and all were determined to
secure him. The passenger's grip
was first in the hands of one driver,
then it was suddenly snatched and
hugged to the arms of another." At
