EGYPTIAN WAR- Steamer. Recently. Attacked by a ' Force of French. ; special dtspatch to the sun : .' : , .- -I "' " .- - i Omdurman,Sept. 7th (delayed)--An important J incident occurred this morning. It appears that Kalifa Abdullah a few days be fore the arrival of the Anglo Egyptian army heard that a force of white men occupied Fashoda, a town on the j west bank of the White Nilei, the capital of a very fertile and densely populated dis trict. : Fashoda is about four hun dred miles1 south of Kharoum. Khalifa immediately sent two steamers to investigate the report. One of them returned this morn ing and the other surrendered. Gen. Kitchener commander of the steamer reported that on his ar rival at Fashoda he found that it was occupied by a force. of whites. The latter opened a heavy lire on the steamer which narrowly es caped annihilation, the crew losing many killed and wounded. From the bullets embedded in the hull of the steamer it seems to be ' certain! that the whites at Fashoda are a force of French troops. The British commander will send a flotilla of gun boats up the White Nile to investigate the affair. i i A Rare Opportunity.

' Yesterday's Asheville Citizen says:- . - ; j ' t ' - ': George W. Jayne, of Washing ton, D. C.,jis a guest of the Ar cadia. Mr. Jayne says that in making the trip to Asheville the engineer of the train on which he rode saw a i cow on the track to the east entrance of the Swannanoa tunnel. There was no escape for the animal, any more than for the train, as the cut was deep. The engine therefore struck her at high speed. i When the train emerged from the tunnel j the cow, apparently unhurt, rolled from the cowcatcher and moved off in the even tenor of her way, chewing the cud of re flection and! the grass that grew about the mouth of the tunnel.

A DOUBLE TRACK. MAY BE BUILT BETWEEN HERE AND GREENSBORO. It Would Not Require a Great Amount of Work as There are i a Number of Side Tracks Now. Some time since there was talk of a double track being built be tween Salisbury and Greensboro. The track was not built at that time but it is now stated that he Southern is about to build this proposed double track. ' . ' The following concerning the matter is taken from the Winston correspondent of the Charlotte Ob server: "Ycjur correspondent is assur ed that the Southern Railvvav wTill either' build a road from Reidsville to Kernersville, con necting: with the line to Moores ville" or double-track the present main line between Greensboro and Salisbury or Charlotte. A gen tleman who holds an important position in the maihtainance i de partment of the Southern is in Winston making some investiga tions. He was in Kernersville yesterday. While he declines to talk for publication, enough was learned from him to state that the Southern officials are now , in-, vestigating to see what is the best thing to do. The proposed" line from Reidsville via Winston would shorten the line from Washington to Atlanta several miles, j While this is true, the present main line, via Greensboro, has so many side tracks that it would not require' a n vast amount of nioney to con nect them, thereby making a dou ble track." I A correspondent of the Raleigh News & Observer, writing on the same subject, after speaking of the large amount of traffic done by the Southern and the demand for quicker -moving of trains, says: -v.1 . ' j : "And it is this, I am informed, that is the most powerful reason for building the Reidsville-Kernersville and Mt. Mourne-Gaston-ia links. If they are not built, then the Southern will be com pelled, if the Legislature will per mit it, to build a double track to at least' from Salisbury to Greens boro. So enormous has become the freight and passenger business on this section of the main lino that one track, will not accommo date it. Only one night last week there were on this track of forty miles length twenty two trainsl This congestion must be reliev ed, for it will grow greater from year to year, as the country j de velops. The question with jthe road and the only question is whether it will be better to build' the two links of forty miles, there by shortening its line that much, or parallel the forty miles of track from Greensboro to Salisbury, and 'possibly to Charlotte."
