when Mr. Y. C. Rust was not in charge
of the local office of the Western

is mourning in Albany today among
the four Albanians who have consti

Yacht Club. It’s this way. These
four gentlemen purchased a pretty
gasoline launch and they have been
plying down the Flint on hunting and
pleasure expeditions rather regularly.
Sunday night the launch was anchored
safely on the shores of the Flint, and
Monday morning all that was left was
a chain and a rope that had been ent
in twain. The sad news reached the
ears of the yachtsmen, and they be
gan a search, but all In vain. They
telegraphed Balnbridge, Tampa, Jack

launch has been stolen.

Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 13.—While In ses
sion yesterday, the state railroad
commission replied to Judge W. F.
five,- of Augusta,’ in' regard tO'hls-re-
quest for a special rate on material
used in the betterment of highways
to the effeot that it could not lay
down a general rule, but If special
shipments were contemplated, It
could probably arrange with the rail
roads to take them at reduced rates.
The reason given was that a rate ap
plying to road materials would also
have to be applied, if it became gen
eral, to the same materials used in
other lines of work.
The commission also decided that
the Stillmore Air Line and the Col
lins & ReidsvillB railroad could not
use with the Seaboard Air Line the
depotrbuilt by. the latter system at
Collins. According to the commis
sion, the former roads had agreed to
pay part of the expense of the depot,
but had failed to dt> so. They are
now requested to build their own de
pot at Collins.
