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

Yesterday's Asheville Citizen

George W. Jayne, of Washing

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.

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
"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."
