GEORGIA’S CAPITAL CITY.
THE COLORED UNIVERSITY NOT
APT TO GET THE SB,OOO.
An Adverse Report From the Com
mittee That Examined the Alleged
Compliance With the Laws-The
Attorney General Renders a Decision
as to the Rights of Disabled Veterans.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. o.—The Governor is
in receipt of a communication signed by
Chancel or Mell, L. A. Charbonnier and
William Rutherford, the commission to
examine the plan of expenditure proposed
by the Atlanta University of State appro
priation of SB,OOO, stating that they bad re
turned the plan unapproved, for the reason
wired the News last night that the Univer
sity failed to comply with the resolution of
the last Legislature. In regard to the mat
ter Prof C. W. Francis, of lie Atlanta
University, said to a Journal reporter to
day: ‘’While we are averse to appearing
in newspaper controversies, I will say
that the University sent in its
application for money this year, as it has
done for the past fifteen years, and the ap
plication was returned to us and we received
no money. There are two sides to this ques
tion, and wo are bound to respect them.
This university is under obligations to the
government of the United Sta tes for cer
tain things, and among them we must not
exclude persons on account of their color.
We have $60,000 which we are under obli
gations to the government for, and if wo
adopt the plan proposed by the Legislature
of Georgia we might run a very severe
“Will the university make another appli
cation in conformity to the requirements of
the Georgia law?" •
“That I can’t say. We have to be very
careful, and could not answer or give any
indication at all until after we consult over
the matter. As I said before, there are two
sides to this question.”
It appears now that the disabled veterans
who will apply for allowance under the
recent act will number several thousand.
There has been some trouble to determine who
are entitled to aid under the act and for the
benefit of all applicants the Governor sub
mitted the case to the Attorney General for
an opinion which would cover it. The At
torney General submitted the following
opinion to-day, to which the attention of
all disabled veterans is called.
“I have examined the application of
Philip Waters, of Schley county under the
act of the last Legislature making appro
priations for disabled soldiers referred to
me by your direction. It appears that he
has been paid under previous laws for the
loss of his left leg and is
not entitled to any further
payment until Sept. 26,1889, unless the last
act entitled him to claim a further allow
ance because of the incidental effects of the
amputation of his leg on other members of
his body. He claims that the amputation
of his left leg produced a nervous disease
which has caused him to lose the use of his
l ight arm, right leg and light side. The
late act provides in general terms for three
classes of persons who lost a limb
or limbs while in the military
service. For persons who received
wounds, which afterwards caused the loss
of a limb, or limbs, and for jiersons who
‘may have been permanently injured while
in said service.’ It then makes special pro
vision for ‘the total loss of sight,’ for ‘the
loss of one eye,’ for ‘the total or partial loss
of hearing whereby the applicaut is per
manently disabled from the ordinary pur
suits of life,’ for ‘the loss of a leg above the
knee,’ for ‘the loss of a leg bolow thh knee,’
for ’the loss of an arm above the
elbow,’ for ‘permanent injury from
wounds whereby a leg or arm is rendered
substantially and essentially useless, and
from permanent injury to any part of the
hod v not before mentioned whereby the per
son injured has been rendered permanently
and practically incompetent for the per
formance of the ordinary manual avoca
tions of life.’ A jierson who has suffered
the total loss of sight is usually incompetent
for the performance of the ordinary avoca
tions of life, but such person nevertheless
is only entitled to the amount allowed for
total loss of sight So a person who has lost
a limb or limbs is only entitled to
the amount or amounts allowed tor the loss
of such limb or limbs, and not for the addi
tional effects of such loss. In a word, the
last two classifications are intended to cover
cases not falling within the preceding spe
cial classifications; for instance, a (jerson
inay have not lost a limb, but may have
been so badly wounded in one cf bis limbs
as to render it useless. So also a ;>erson may
neither have lost the use of any particular
limb, but he may have received such perma
nent injury to some other part of
his body as to render him incompetent
for the performance of the ordinary
manual avocations of life. I would be
gratified to he able to take a different view
of the matter, as I have no doubt the appli
cant is needy and deserving, like thou
sands of wounded and disabled Georgia sol
diers who suffered from the late war. But
the law makes no other provision for the
present f>: Mr. Waters than what he has
received. Doubtless the State will make
better provisions for our disabled veterans
when the condition of the people justifies
INSURANCE MEN FIGHT.
Harry (.'. Stockdell, General Agent of the
Phoenix Insurance Company, and Humph
reys Castleman, a bond and stock broker,
and agent of the Royal Insurance Com
pany, iiad a personal difficulty this morning,
which resulted in Cattleman's giving Stoek
dell a black eye, while Castleman lost a
bunch of his whiskers. Before further
damage could lie done thepolice sojiarated
the belligerents. The difficulty is said to
have origin in the fact that a short time
ago Castleman applied to the Capital City
Club for admission as a member and was
rejected by the Governing Committee, of
which Stockdell is a member, and that
Castleman is of the opinion that for per
sonal reasons Stockdell was the cause of his
not getting in.

TROUBLE IN A SCHOOL.
The Boys Ivy Street School gave the
Principal a rough time to-day. The Prin
cipal is himself in charge or the highest
grade. For some time there has been con
siderable friction in the school, but without
an open revolt. To-day, however, tilings
came to a head when Mr. Kinnebrew called
up Charles Goldsmith, son of l)r. W. T.
Goldsmith, and began flogging him. The
other boys thought he laid on too heavily,
and the larger ones went boldly to the res
cue. An exciting scene folio wed, and tho
colored janitor advised the professor to dis
miss the school. The advice was acted
upon and the boys were
s'sin in the streets discussing tile situation.
Presently Mr. Kinnebrew made his appear
ance in the yard and a crowd of boys at
tacked him with sticks and rocks. The pro
fessor retreated down the street. The boys
followed, and the professor ran until he
reached the residence of Robert Pause, when
he leapied over a back fence and escaped his
The whole school, including the
grades down stairs, bad been
greatly disturbed, and somebody tele
phoned to the station house for
a policeman. Patrolman Greene
responded, and he was told that the lioys
had assaulted Prof. Kinnebrew with knives
as well as sticks and rocks. No arrests
were made. There is a difference of
opinion as to who was to blame. One of
the lady teachers thinks Mr. Kinnebrew
deserved all he got. It is said that there
has been much disorder at the Ivy Street
school for some weeks past. Superintend
ent Slaton will investigate the affair. Prof.
Kinnebrew came from Athens, and brought
the highest recommendations.
WOOLFOLK’S TRIA L.
An Expert Testifies lhat Stains Were
Those of Blood.
Macon, Ga,, Dec. 9. —The fifth day of the
Woolfolk trial opened amid wind and rain.
It has been a dreary dismal day, the rain
falling incessantly. Dr. Clifton, an expert
chemist and microscopist, was put on the
stand by the State. He examined the stains
on the clothing yesterday in the presence of
the State’s Attorney and Dupont Guerry,
and Attorney Walker, of the counsel for
the defense. The examination consumed
two hours and was exhaustive. Prof.
Charles Line was also present. During the
examination Attorney Walker punctured
his hands with a knife until a drop of blood
oozed out, which was put under the micro
scope and compared with the stains ou the
UNDOUBTEDLY BLOOD STAINS.
Dr. Clifton testified that the stains were
undoubtedly blood stains. The shape and
appearance of the disks of the two bloods
were identical being the niamilia, or verte
Counsel Rutherford fired volley after
volley of questions at the witness, but failed
utterly to confuse him or shake his opinion.
Following this interesting episode .a dis
cussion arose over the introduction of Pen
nington, the first witness for the defense,
who wanted to testify to threats he had
heat’d through a third party. The jury was
s nit out, and a heated running discussion
followed of all the points involved.
The court finally decided that Penning
ton’s testimony was inadmissible.
Judge Gustin then ordered the jury re
turned, and called on the defense to proceed.
A recess was asked for and granted, in order
to allow a consultation between the prison
er and his attorneys, who stated that they
could not decide on a line of defense until
they had consulted with Woolfolk. The con
ference lasted some time. When it was con
cluded, Mrs. Crane, an aunt of Woolfolk,
was put on the stand to testify to his gener
al good character.
Pending her examination, the court ad
journed until to-morrow morning at 9

The whole of the afternoon session of the
United States District Court yesterday was
occupied with consideration of the case of
Wurtz, Biedler & Cos. vs. Hoover. Jones &
Bowen. Articles of agreement between
Hoover, Jones & Bowen had been drawn
up, These articles were claimed by the
plaintiffs to establish a partnership between
the defendants, a view which the court, in
his charge to the jury, sustained. After
lieing out three-quarters of an hour, the
jury found for the plaintiffs in the sum of
$827 66. The main point raised in this
suit was the legal meaning of a partner
ship. A good deal was said this morning
in regard to the action of Judge
Pardee in this ease. Calling up one
of the jurymen, when the testimony was
all In, he notified him to act as foreman
and to bring in a verdict for the plaintiff.
The juryman demurred and said he and his
associates preferred to retire first. The
J udgo acceded to this, but reiterated his
order to find a verdict for the plaintiff. The
jurv retired, and on returning gave in tho
verdict as directed, but under protest, as
nearly all wero in favor of the defendant.
No appeal is allowed in this court when the
sum involved is less than $5,000, hence it
must stand. The lawyers generally are
discussing tho matter rather unfavorably
and ask what is the use of a jury if the
J udge arbitrarily decides.

DON M. DICKINSON'S SPECIALTY.
A Terror to Debtors Who Can Pay but
are Determined Not to.
From the Minsouri Republican.
A Western Congressman who had just
arrived in the city tells the following about
Mr. Don M. Dickinson, of Michigan, who is
looked upon as the coming Postmaster Gen
“Yes, I know Dickinson of Michigan very
well. I have been in some railroad rases
with him. He is chain lightning. Dickin
son lias made the bulk of his fortune in the
practice of one legal specialty. He is the
best collector of bad debts on the face of
the earth. Oh, no, I don’t mean small bad
debts. This is the way of it. In the first
place, there used to be a good many people
with a bad habit, of failing every few years.
They always owed large slims of inopoy to
Eastern merchants and capitalists, and did
not mean to pay a cent if they could help it.
To this class Dickinson was and is a mortal
terror. There is no device that the swind
ling debtor can adopt that Dickinson cannot
s *e through, and ho is as sharp on the trail as
the best Parisian detective. Tho man who
can pay and won’t is the fellow Dickinson
likes to get hold of.
“About ten years ago—to illustrate what
I mean—there were three big failures in
Detroit. Olio firm had the sympathy of
everybody, but the others were rather un
certain customers. The two doubtful con
cerns each owed over $250,000 to New York
and Boston people. Among other creditors
was a New' England shoe manufacturer for
a iarge linn. This concern quietly returned
Dickinson as their‘counsel, and the largest
other creditor did the same thing. ‘Don’t
let them know' I am in tho case,’ said he as
he left his clients. He went home. The
agent of the New England firm came out to
see the broken merchant lam talking about.
He was a Germon Jew—generally good, re
sponsible people, but when they are tricky,
lookout! The usual tales were told of cus
tomers who could not come to time and all
that. It really looked like a bad case, and
the Boston shoe concern was about to ac
cept a settlement at 20c. on the dollar.
“ ‘Don’t do it for a day or two, v said Dick
“Just how he was going to get the money
out of his Israelitish customer he did not
know, but he was sure there hud been some
swindling. It happened that in his house
hold there had been ail extremely pretty
Irish girl living as domestic for many years.
.She was faithful, neat and unusually intel
ligent, and the household was very much at
tached to her. About a year before this she
had married a very industrious young coun
tryman of her own, who was a thrifty
young boss drayman. That evening after
dinner Dickinson learned that Maggie’s hus
band had broken his leg a week or two be
fore. He went around to see the man
“ ‘How did it happen, Pete?’ he asked.
“ ‘Well, ye see, sir, I was on a bit of a
job that —but, sir, the man told me, sir, that
i must not toll.’
“ ‘Nonsense, you can tell me, can’t you?’
said Dickinson, and ‘Why not tell Mr. Dick
inson, Peter?’ said the Irishman’s pretty
“So it came about that, two weeks before,
late at night, Peter bad been draying goods
from the rear end of a store. A neavy box
had slipped and broke his leg.
‘‘ ‘But why did you say you must not tell ?’
said the lawyer.
“ ‘l’m sure I don’t know, sir; that’s what
Mr. Katzenyammer told me, sir,’ answered
“ ‘Katzenyammer; so you are working for
him, eh!’ asked Dickinson.
“He soon got out of the Irishman all he
“‘I see it, now,’ said ho to himself,.as he
“The next morning Mr. Katzenyammer
was rather surprised to receive a call from
the great lawyer. He had not sent for him,
and was somewhat a little uneasy.
“ ’I am the attorney for Messrs. Blank, of
Boston,’ he began, very politely. ‘They
have a claim against you of $47,977 80.
What do you intend doing about it, Mr.
“*Vy, I haf failt, you know, Mr. Dick
shon; 1 don’t how much I can pay on de
“ ‘You must pay this in full, or I will send
you to the pemtentiany in less than a
month,’said Dickinson, sternly. ‘You have
been running your goods out of your store
at nights and sending them to Chicago auc
tion houses to be sold for whatever they
would bring in cash, and you have filled up
your books with false entries”
‘“Fader Abraham!’ screamed the other,
as white as he could become; ‘how tit you
fint dis out?’
“ ‘lt don’t matter how I know it all, and
if you don’t settle now, to-day, I will have
you arrested before to-morrow night. You
are watched; you can’t get away; so don’t
try it.’ And with that Dickinson left It
happened that he had dropped on to what
the man had been doing. How he guessed
it he does not know himself. About 2
o’clack the man came around to see what
terms ho could make. ‘None, sir, except
100 c. on the dollar,’ was the only reply.
“In three flays the claim was paid in full.
“It is just by such lightning strokes as
that that Don Dickinson has made his for
tune. If he does get into the Cabinet he will
hustle things, I tell you.”
High Art on the Stage.
Labouchere in London Truth.
1 once was the owner of a theatre, and I
was perpetually at war with authors and
actors, who wanted me to ruin myself on
the altar of high art. But I soon discovered
that this was a term which they used for
their own fads. Once I produced a play by
Charles Reade. It was a failure, and on
the first night I was sitting with him in a
box. “Tney seem to lie hissing, Mr. Reade,”
1 said. “What of that?” lie replied. “If
you want to please such a public as this you
should not come to me for a play.” Another
time I produced a piece of Tom Taylor’s,
called ‘ Joan of Arc. in which Mrs. Rousby
was “Joan.” It was to commence at 7
o’clock, for it was a very lengthy perform
ance On the curtain going up, there was
an invisible chorus. I found that the salaries
of the singers would be about £ls per week.
I pointed out to Mr. Taylor that this£ 15 would
be wasted. He was indignant at my base,
mercenary view of a beautiful artistic
effect, But I stood.firm, and finally he said
that, rather than sacrifice the effect, he
would jiay for it himself. To this, naturally,
I had no objection, but after the first week
and one payment by him of £ls the chorus
disappeared. “Joan,” in this play, was
finally taken up to heaven and received by
angels. I insisted on first burning her. “I
never,” said Mr. Taylor, “will allow my
drama to le thus degraded.” “Well,” I
said, “I have spent several thousand pounds
on the scenery and dresses of this play, and
I don't want to lose my money, so I must
burn Mrs. Rousby.” “1 won’t write a word
of the dialogue,” lie said. “I don’t want
any dialogue,” 1 replied. “ ‘Joan’ shall lie
bound to the stoke, her arms above her
head, fagots at her feet, and she shall be en
veloped in chemical flames: there shall be
a crowd and it shall groan and moan.” In
vain he protested. Mix Rousby was nightly
burned before her journey heavenward, j
don’t know whether it was artistic, but it
was so effective and realistic that half Lon
don (to my profit) came to see it.

It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allay3 all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the
best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 25
