WAGES REDUCED ON
Amounts Fixed at Half Way Between
Wages Paid Before War and High
est Point Reached.
Judge Beverly D. Evans, United
United States District Court, has de
cided the controversy between the Re
ceivers of the Gainesville Midland Rail
way and their employees, tiling his de
cision in court April 16th, as follows:
“Both Movants and Respondents sub
mitted evidence and briefs at the hear
ing of the rule to show cause why the
salaries and wages of the employees
and officers of the Gainesville Midland
Railway should not be reduced.
“The Court is of tha opinion that it
has jurisdiction of the matter in con
troversy, and that the reduction of
wages and salaries of both employes
and administrative officers proposed by
the Receivers is necessary To the end
that operating expenses shall not ex-
“It is THEREFORE ORDERED,
that beginning April 16th, 1921, the Re
ceivers put into effect on Gainesville
Midland Railway the schedules of pay
including the provisions as to over
time recited in the Court’s order of
%h 12, 1921.”
'U.e effect of this decision is to fix
the wages about middle way between
the pre-war wages and the highest
point reached during Government con
trol and operation.
The aggregate amount of wages paid
out annually by the Gainesville Mid
land previous to 1917 was about SBO,-
000.00, while the wages for 1920 Reach
The wages fixed by Judge Evans or
der will aggregate about $125,000.00.
Tl\e road has been steadily losing
about $100,000.00 each year and it is
hoped by this adjustment of wages and
the reduced cost of coal and other op
erating expenses that the road can be
saved from being dismantled.
The employees submitted their case
fully and fairly to the Court and were
given a full hearing and it is thought
that they will accept the decision of
the Court and abide by his ruling.
Nearly all the men have l>een with the
road for many years, some of them over
\a quarter of a century. They have been
J loyal and faithful in the past and will
/ undoubtedly stand steadfastly by tne
road now even though its unfortunate
condition does not permit it to pay the
wages that the employees enjoyed dur
ing Government operation.

This section was treated to another
cold snap last Sunday and Monday

frost* though the thermometer was
close down to freezing point. Garden
vegetables looked rather sick after

fruit seems to have escaped.

A band of Gypsies are camped out

In An Auto Accident On the Athens
Road Car Turns Over Killing One
and Injuring Another.
While returning from the Christian
Chapel Sunday school and rounding
a sharp curve on the road from Winder
to Athens at the Green Smith place,
about two miles from this city, late
Sunday afternoon, a Ford ear being
driven by Newt Thomas, sou of Mr.
Win. Thomas, of near Bethlehem, was
overturned. Besides youug Thomas,
Hudson Holloway, the 18-year-old son
of Mr. and Mrs. George Holloway, was
in the car and the latter was almost
instantly killed. The car turned over
twice, having been going at a rapid
rate of speed. Newton Thomas was
injured but he will recover.
Both parties were hurried to Winder
and every possible medical attention
was given them, but youug Holloway
died without having regained conscious
The funeral services for young Hol
loway occurred at Bethlehem Monday
afternoon from the Methodist church
of which he was a member. Rev. J. B.
Gresham conducting the services.
The tragedy has cast a gloom over
that entire community, as both young
men were well thought of, stood high
in their community, and were from
the best families in the county.
The sympathy of a host of friends
are extended to the bereaved ones .
Barrow County’s Great
Sunday School Day
Last Sunday was the greatest day
for the Bible schools in Barrow’s his
tory. The county Ministerial Associ
ation, one of the livest and most help
ful in the state, had through the press
and every available means stressed the
matter of attendance upon the minds
and the hearts of the people and a line
crowd was the result at the churches.
The following reports have been sent
in to Rev. W. H. Faust, secretary.
Corinth, M. E., 77.

Appr. schools not reporting 300.
Total attending S. S. in county 3826.
Total Sunday School Attendance for
the County is 3698.
Some splendid work was done by the
Bible school officials and attendants
and this shows what effort will do.
< tut of a population of over 13000,
around 3600 attended Sunday school.
This gives one-fourth of the inhabi
tants as Sunday school attendants, and
we dare say that not a county in the
state can make such a tine showing.
Sunday was an eye-opener. We
opine that other counties will follow
Barrow’s lead and that figures will be
given that will shock and startle the
Christian workers and show why Geor
gia leads the states in criminality. If
you let the rural churches and Bible
schools weaken you unconsciously pre
pare for Bolshevism.
The Religious Census for 1916 gives
Barrow, pop. 12,000, Christians 5163.
Gwinnett, pop. 28824, Christians 10716
Walton, pop. 25393, Christians 9162.
Jackson, pop. 30169, Christians 0078.

consideration of our people. The min
