MUNICIPAL MATTERS. 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 few davs. V 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 ever. * # * 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 for ’91. * * 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 has made. * * 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 porary committee. * * * 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. B. 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.” Just received a fine large lot of White Shat and Snappers. Apalachicola Oysters always on hand at V\ in Thomas’.

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 Sunday morning. 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 supply. The congregation made up a handsome purse ami tendered it to the retiring pastor as a Christmas present. Creek Tribe Elects Officers— Creek Tribe, 1. O. R.

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. arrivals central hotel.
