GOSSIP ABOUT CITY AFFAIRS GATHERED
HERE AND THERE.
The meeting of the City Council this af
ternoon will pass upon the applications of
parties for retail liquor licenses. The num
ber of applications is somewhere between
forty and fifty, and the new city charter
requires thstl the entire amount of each
license, $300, be paid in advance. This
will put a good deal of money into the
hands of the City Treasurer in the next
One important feature of the new T char
ter is that it gives Council police jurisdic
tion for a mile and a half beyond the city
limits on the Georgia side. This year nine
barrooms were run outside the city limits
in territory to be covered under the new
order of things. Parties in this territory
must pay $500 for license just the same as
those who do business in the city. This
will be new revenue to the city.
“The bottom” out on the Wynnton road
has been recognized as a “tough” locality
for a long time. Citizens of that section
have petitioned Council not to grant liquor
license to parties in that neighborhood.
The petition is now in the hands of a com
mittee of Council. A report will be sub
mitted at the meeting this afternoon. It
is believed that the committee will recom
mend that license-be not granted to a num
ber of applicants on the Wynnton road.
This is not staled authoritatively, how
There is a good deal of speculation
among the politicians as to the composi
tion of the various committees to be ap
pointed by Mayor Dozier at the meeting of
Council the first Wednesday in January.
The Mayor has not intimated to any one
as to who will compose the committees,
and, it is said, he does not intend to do so
Consequently the Aldermen themselves do
not know on what committees they will be
placed, and some of them may be agree
ably surprised and others disappointed
when his honor announces the committees
It is understood that Chairman of
Street Committee Epping does not desire
to be chairman of the street-committee
another year, and has so informed Mayor
Dozier. Mr. Epping has made a splendid
officer for his committee during the past
year, and the work done under his direc
tion has been first-class in every particular.
Tee street committee chairmanship is one
of the most important to be filled by
Mayor Dozier, and it will be a hard matter
to get a better chairman than Mr. Epping
The police committee is discussed at
present by those interested in getting po
sitions on the police force for the coming
year, but nobody seems to know who the
Mayor will put on this committee.
The hospital committee will have irn-
# portant work to perform, as a new hos
pital and crematory will probably be built
duiiug the coining year.
Talk about the fiuance committee has
about ceased, as the most important work
of that committee—fixing retail liquor
license—has been accomplished by a tem
Alderman Bush has made a good chair
man of the market committee, and proba
bly the Mayor will insist on his retaining
the chairmanship of that committee.
- Happy Women.
What is it that makes women more
smiling and happy looking than men?
We meet them on the cars, on the streets,
in the country, by the seashore, always
smiling, teeth a glistening, eyes a dancing.
Ah! the secret is they aim to please. It
is an effort in many instances for them to
smile, and were it not for a desire to look
pleasing and pretty many would “never
smile again.” Why? Because in a large
majority of instances they don’t feel like
smiling. They feel more like crying.
With their nervous aches, weakness and
bearing down pains, life to them is a bur
den. What a gold-find to many a phy
sician is a rich sick woman. Why should
he aim to cure her and deny himself the
pleasure of presenting his bills with the
usual regularity. It seems from the fol
lowing, that the surest and cheapest way
for invalid women to regain health and
strength is by using Botanic Blood (B.
Mrs. J. A. White, 340 Wythe street,
Petersburg, Ya., writes: “I have used B.
B. B. with happy results, and others have
taken it at my advice and are delighted
with its curative results.”
J. N. Gregory, Butler Postoffice, S. C.,
writes: “My w’ife had been under the
treatment of several good physicians, but
continued in poor health, so I bought four
bottles of Botanic Blood Balm, and it did
her more good than those doctors had
done her in ten years. She is now doing
her own washing, a thing she had not been
able to do for four years.”

SERVICES AT BETHEL.
RY OF THE P
THE 50t1I ANNIVERSA-
4.STORATE OF REV.
C. O. WILLIS.
Services of an unusually interesting
nature were held at Bethel Baptist Church,
a few miles from the city, at 11 o’clock
The occasion was the celebration of the
50th anniversary of the pastorate of the
venerable Rev. C. C. Willis, who has had
charge of the church for fifty consec
utive years. While Rev. Mr. Willis is
quite venerable and feeble, he preached an
able and comparatively vigorous sermon to
an immense congregation. At the con
clusion of the sermon, Rev. Mr. Willis re
signed his charge, having determined to
retire from active work on account of fee
ble health. The congregation was deeply
moved and part with their old pastor with
deep regret. Rev. Mr. Willis has served
Bethel Church faithfully for the past half
century and no man in that section is so
dearly loved and generally respected as he.
His place with the church wlil be hard to
The congregation made up a handsome
purse ami tendered it to the retiring pastor
as a Christmas present.

Primrose & West.—This great min
strel company, said to be the best on the
road this season, will give the best per
formance this year at the opera house to
night. The Atlanta Constitution has this
excellent notice of the company:
The best on the road, and the finest. It
was brim full of fun. Every feature of
the program was bright and clever. After
the overture, “The Sunset Gud,” came
“Dead Heart,” by John Davis. It was
encored. “She,” an original song by John
Queen, was excellent. Queen is one of
the clever young minstrel comedians.
After George Powers and his banjo
came “Comrades,” by Joe Natus
and a comic medley by J,
Melville Janson. Janson is a new man to
Atlanta, but he made a decidedly favorable
impression. “Annie Laurie” was sung
by the quartette, Reynolds, Davis, Naius
and Garland. It was one of the sweetest
quartette renditions ever heard here, and
must be heard to be appreciated. Then
Primrose and West, and Lew Dockstader
—the names tell the rest of it. Three of
the very best. Lew Dockstader’s song,
“Try, Try Again,” captured the house.
The local hits were great. The theme of
one verse is to find an office for Baby Mc
Kee. “ That Is Love,” by Fred Oakland,
was a gem of its kind. It is the most
taking minstrel ballad heard in many a
day. “The English Swell,” by George
Primrose, was another great hit. His song
and dance, “ The New Coon Done Gone,”
was inimitable. Primrose is always
great. The second part be
gins with Billy West's ‘satire,
“The Fun-o-graph,” which is good
enough.' Cain and Lorene, the aerial con
tortionists, were another great feature.
But best of all were the “Log Cabin
Neighbors,” Melville Jansoa, George H.
Primroge,George Powers and John Queen.
It was perfection—a plantation quartette
of titty years ago. They were encored and
encored, and the house couldn’t get
enough of them. Here was old time min
strelsy in counter distinction with the
modem article, and the old time stuff was
certainly “in it.” Then came Lew Doek-
stader in all his glory. “Listen to His
Tale of Woe” was funny as could be, and
his “Misfits” kept the crowd roaring. A
great deal was expected of that number on
the program, and those anticipations were
realized way above par. The ‘March of
the Imperials,” ultra Xjuave, with the
intillating incand sient light batons,
managed and led by Billy West, was equal
to anything of its kind ever seen It is a
great march and shows that Mr. West is
an artist in this line as in others.
