VOL. VI. NO. 1.876,
To Be Established in the State
$20,000 FOR A NORMAL
School—The Law of Libel to Be
Special to thc Tbibcnk.
Atlanta, Nov. 7.—lt was another quiet
day at the capitol. The senate was not
in session at all, and the house devoted
its time to local bills principally. The
conut of the clerk showed a quorum
present at all times, but it looked ex
tremely doubtful. However, there is no
going behind the returns, and nobody de
sires to, of course.
The principal feature of the day’s ses
sion, from a newspaper standpoint, was
the bill introduced by Mr. Boifeuillet re
garding actions for libel. It is a bill of
special interest to newspaper men. The
bill provides that the burden of proof cf
malice in a publication must be made by
the plaintiff. It also requires three days
notice t> be given by the plaintiff, within
which a correction may be given. If the
c irrection is made, the plaintiff can only
recover actual damage. The bill is a
good one, as it is in the interest of sim
Another important new bill was that of
Mr. Fleming, of Richmond, appropriat
ing $20,009 to the normal school at Ath
ens. He introduced another bill on the
Bams subject providing for a normal
branch of the State University, and for
co-education, for whites in the same.
Mr. Cumming, of Richmond, intro
duced two bills, one providing for the re
newal of charters, heretofore granted to
binkin/, insurance and other corpora
tions of aim lar character, and the other
granting corporate powers to the same
sorts of institutions.
The general judiciary committee
recommended that the city court utill of
Richmond county do pass.
Among the gensruLbills
up was one of Mr. Boynton, of Calhoun,
repealing the sections of the code pro
viding for a system of standard weights
and measures, and also that section
which provides that a grocer, who has
not regular registered weights and meas
ures, at provided by this act, shall not be
able to collect the debts due him. The
repeal of thia is urged as being a dead
letter. Mr. Bryan, of Floyd, made a
speech in f .vor of the repeal, and the bill
Among the bills passed was one by Mr.
King, of Fulton, providing that ticket
agents, selling accident insurance policies
shall not be required to pay Pcense.
The bi’l of Mr. Howard, of Baldwin,
changing the name of the state lunatic
asylum, was tabled. There was strong
opposition to this bill, which seems to be
simp'y a sentimental measure.
Mr. Morton, of Ciark, introduced a bill
providing that six months residence in
Clark county shall bi required to qualify
v iters, instead of twelve months, as at

Review of the Situation For the Week
Chattanooga, Nov. 7.—The Trades
man, in its review of the industrial situ
ation in the south for the week ending
Nov. 6, reports that the settlement of
the financial question is producing good
results. Renewed confidence is shown
by inquiries received from prospective
investors, by an increase in the demand
for machinery, by arrangements being
made to start up plants that have not
been working, and by an enlarged vol
ume of mercantile business.
No material advance can be reported
in the iron and coal market which has
practically touched bottom. The Lou
isiana sugar crop is now coming into
market, and is one of the largest for
many years, and the same is true of the
rice crop. A slight advance in the price
of cotton has brought out an increased
supply, but many planters who can af

Baltimore, Nov. 7.—The Holy Rosary
Polish Catholic church was the scene of
riot at high mass. The priest had given

given tickets to the pewholders who paid
their pew rents to him and recognized
his authority. This closed the doors
against the dissatisfied element who re
fused to admit his right.
Father Barabasz looked for trouble
and had asked for a squad of policemen.
These occupied the doors, and as those
who were refused admission increased in
numbers they became demonstrative.
Finally they tried to break through the
The women were by far the more

A NON-INTEREST NOTE.
Mr. Maxwell is Immensely
Pleased With His Year’s
Washington, Nov. 7.—Between $20,-
000,000 and $30,000,000 of United States
bonds are falling due or will soon be due,
and it has been suggested that these be
paid by issuing treasury warrants. Thtjse
warrants would have to be authorized by
congress, and, although called warrants,
would simply be another name for
greenbacks. By the issue of these war
rants more money would be put in cir
culation and at the same time the condi
tion of the treasury would be relieved to~
a considerable extent. I
“If we can change our non-intefest ob
ligation for an interest bearing obliga

better thing for the government.' It will
not make any difference whether we is

as redemption is concerned, as both
would have to be redeemed in gold, ex

Mr. Maxwell’s Fine Showings
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Maxwell, in his first annual jroport, says
that during the last fiscal year 1,181 per
sons were arrested for violations of the
postal laws. Os these, only 451 were
postoffice officials—a small number
when compared with the total number
of postal officials, which on June 30 last
was upward of 185,000. Os the cases de
termined, 380 resulted in conviction and
54 in acquittal. Fifty-four accused per
sons were discharged on preliminary
hearing; proceedings were dismissed or
prosecutions abandoned in 23 cases, and
in 21 grand juries refused or failed to in
dict. Seven of those arrested escaped
from custody, five forfeited their bail
and one died while awaiting tri; 1.
There were 228 burglaries of post
offices, against 203 in the preceding year.
This crime is growing. While the" en
tire number of arrests fell off 225 from
the total number made in the preceding
year, the number of burglars arrested
During the year there were 5,546 com
plaints of losses in the mails, of which
one-half were of the rifling of letters or
packages, and the other half of the ab
solute loss of letter or package and con
tents. In 2,557 cases no loss was found
to have occurred, and in 1,846 cases tne
complaints were well 'founded. In a
large number of cases the inTSSing arti
qlatt-were traced and found. In 35 com
plaints it was found that the articles
claimed to have been sent had not been
mailed at all. In speaking of the cases
of rifling, the report says:
“Here are found some cur io us fea
tures. Six hundred and twenty-one of
these cases were investigated, and in 547
of them the claim of rifling was found
to have been falsely made; either the
contents, if enclosed, were received, or
else the inclosures were admitted to have
been left out of the article registered.
In 74 cases the rifling was found not to
have taken place while the article regis
tered was in the custody of the postal
service. Some persons take this means
to avoid the payment of honest debts.
“One case is recorded of a woman who
undertook to pay a debt in this way to a
neighbor—another woman living in the
same town and in the same street with
herself, and directly across the street.
She walked several blocks to the postof
fice and personally registered a letter to
her creditor, made no inclosure and then
calmly declared that as far as she was
concerned the debt was paid, and the
creditor must look to the jiostoflice de
partment for reimbursement.”
A careful investigation of the com
plaints against the department shows
that during the past year when 14,533,-
, 376 registered letters and packages were
handleu the loss was but 929, or an aver
age of one to every 15,644.
Mr; Maxwell is esjiecially proud of the
1 record of the department, because dur
' ing four months of the time covered by
the report he was engaged in removing
old nnstmflßters and annointinsr new
ones at tne rate or too a day. he thinks
the general efficiency shown by the re
port is a strong evidence of the charac
ter of the new appointees.
Lochren Has Not Resigned.
Washington, Nov. 7.—The report has
teen widely circulated that Commission
er of Pensions Lochren has resigned.
Irhe reason assigned for the resignation
is that he is an old soldier, and is dissat
isfied with the attitude of the Adminis
tration concerning reforms in the pen
sion list. It is also rumored that First
Deputy Murphy will take charge.
Secretary Smith, when seen, contra
dicted the report, and insisted that there
was no truth in it.
Commissioner Lochren, when ques
tioned regarding his reported resigna
tion, said: “You can deny in most em
phatic terms, for me, any statement that
I have resigned.”
