FIRE AGENTS SHOULD UNITE.
Complaints That Bates are Too High.
If True, Why So?
There is some complaint among
the business men and property
owners in Cordele that the rate of
fire insurance is not kept down in
proportion to the fire protection,
and it appears that in two or three
instances which have come to light
that the complaint is well founded.
It will be remembered that two
or three years ago there was much
talk and a great deal done to re
duce the rate of insurance on all
property in Cordele. The mayor
and council went to the extra ex
pense of getting a fire bell, a hook
and ladder outfit, of adding new
hose, cut-off nozzles, extra boiler
at the pumping station, and other
improvements such as good volun
teer fire companies.
As a result, the basis rate of in
surance was changed from that of
a fourth class town to that of a
second class, which has saved hun
dreds of dollars in reduced premi
ums to the policy-holders on all
property located within 500 feet
of a fire plug.
For example, an unexposed
dwelling located within 500 feet
of a fire plug was no longer one
dollar per year for each one hun
dred dollars insurance, but same
was reduced from one dollar to
seventy-five cents. The same is
true to a larger extent as to the
different business enterprises.
There are a few instances to which
attention has been called, where
business enterprises enjoying all
the advantages offered by Cor
dele’s water protection, haye been
rated as if not enjoying the privi
lege of this protection, and neces
sarily the policy-holder is out a
great many dollars, which pos
sibly he should not be out.

SUPERIOR COURT NEXT WEEK
John Hanaway Attempts an Assault on
a 14-year old Girl.
Quite a crowd gathered around
the county jail at Vienna Monday
when it was learned that John
Hanaway, a well-known character
and half idiot, attempted an as*
sauIt on the person ot Miss Christ
mas, a 14-year-old girl, a daugh
ter of a prominent planter who
lives about, tour miles fromVienna.
The young girl with two nr three
other girls was in the woods when
seen by Hanaway, but before he
could accomplish his purpose he
was frightened away. When the
girls reported the case, men went,
in pursuit,lie was promptly arrest
ed and taken to jail through the
excitement, of the neighborhood.
A crowd gathered about the jail
and exhibited signs of willingness
to protect the honor of their coun
try. Cool heads prevailed and the
crowd dispersed with the promise
that if the men would stay their
hands the judge would be asked to
call a special term of court and
give the prisoner a speedy trial.
Alter dark it was discovered tha.t
a crowd had assembled near the
jail yard and desired admission to
the presence of the prisoner. The
jail door was open and men walk
ed in but John was not there.
The sheriff, fearing a lynching,
rushed Hanaway off to Valdosta
jail to remain until he is brought
back for trial.
Judge Littlejohn has adjourned for
Sumter superior court next
week and has called a special term
of Dooly superior court to convene
next Monday for the purpose of
trying John Hanaway.
