A MEETING TO FOItSI THE PLAN
Will Be Held In the Big Western City
—The Representatives of Southern
Railroads Are Kot Behind
Chicago, June 15.—A meeting of rail
road men and Southern planters will
be held In this city July 10 to discuss
a plan for forming a produce exchange
to be conducted something on the plan
of the board of trade.
It the present Ideas are carried out
this city may become the fruit and
vegetable center of the country. The
commission men on South Water
street are backward about the scheme,
but Southern railroad men now In the
city declare that the opposition will
not last long, and that the time Is
close at hand when watermelons and
other Southern produce will be sold
and dealt in here just as grain on the
Board of Trade.
President Brown of the Augusta
Southern railroad, one of the South
erners, Is anxious for the exchange
movement to go through. He says the
commission men stood aghast when he
nsked them to pay cash for 1,000 car
loads of melons, twenty pounds each
at 9 cents a pound. Melons, they said,
were cheap enough delivered in Chi
cago at that price July 4, but they
had always sold, on commission.
They guaranteed a sale for the mel
ons. and they are liable to Inaugurate
a new plan by starting an exchange.

The Aldermanlo Committee Explains
Its Position as to Obligations.
Baltimore, June 16.—An Aldermanlc
committee from Birmingham. Ala.. Is
here trying to save the credit of their
city and disclaiming any Intention of
repudiating Its financial obligations.
“Many of the reports concerning the
affairs of Birmingham have," the
committee state, "been misleading.
The funded debt of the city is 21,700,-
000 and there has been no default of
Interest on Its bonds. But a provision
In the state constitution prevents the
levying of a tax rate higher than fifty
on ono hundred dollars, and It is not
sufficient to maintain our modern Im
"Coupled with this advantage, the
city has suffered In common with
other places from a heavy depreciation
In values ns a consequence of the busi
ness depression of the last two years.
Handicapped by these difficulties
Birmingham Is deprived of the means
of paying Interest at the times and In
the amounts provided In the bonds.
The city Is able and willing to pay part
of the .Interest when It becomes due,
and we are here for the purpose of as-
spring bondholders of that willingness

Is a dead game fight between Chan-
celor Boggs and Dr. B. F. Riley, pro
fessor of languages, and the affair
has been the talk of tho city and
campus since yesterday morning, at
which time tho matter leaked out.
Just wher It will end the good Lord
only knows. It Is one of the most
sensational events which has trans
pired In the university for a long
■while and Is deeply regretted by the
friends of the gentlemen, who are the
recognized heads of the grand old In
For some time past the very best
of feelings have not existed between
Chancellor Boggs and Dr. Riley.
Only a few days ago the gentlemen
had a little set-to, which was exceed
ingly warm for a while, and Dr.
Riley Informed the chancellor that he
did not truckle to any man and wa3
thoroughly Independent In every re
spect; that ho was pulling the wrong
cat's tall and rubbing the fur tho
wrong way. It Is said that the chan
cellor apologized fp Dr. Riley. On the
surface everything was working har
moniously a/ j satisfactorily between
the two geriviemen. but to a few w'/.o
were on the Inside track thl3 was
known not to be the f'.se by any
means, and when the bdard of visitors
met about the first thing they did was
to go into an Investigation as to the
competency of Dr. Riley. This inves
tigation was kifown to only a few at
first, but soon it leaked out, and there
was some hot language used by the
friends of the gentleman.
The question as to his fitness for
the position has been sprung before.
Several students—and no one knows
Just who furnished name3—were sum
moned before the committee to tes
tify as to the competency or lncom-
petency of Dr. Riley. According to
reports, they said he was totally in
competent. entirely unfitted for the
position. Dr. Riley was called before
the body. They asked a number of
questions, and said that he must sub
ject himself to an examination. Tho
profesor politely but positively told
them that he recognized only the
board of trustees when It came to a
qestlon of examination; that If the
trustees wished to examine him he
would gladly submit, but he would net
submit to anything of the kind from
them. And the examination was riot
held. The doctor's assistant was called
to-the bar and asked a number of
Dr. Rilby Is one of the most highly
esteemed gentlemen connected with
the university. Since coming to Ath :
ens he has gotten thoroughly in touch
with her people and Is well liked by
all. He takes an active Interest In all
matters tending toward the good 6t
the city, and when It became known
that this fight was being waged on
him general expreslons of regret' were
heard on all sides, and scores of our
very best citizens sought different
members of the trustees and begged
that they look carefully Into the mat
ter before taking action on any report
the board of visitors might make re
garding Dr. Riley.
Dr. Riley has but little to say and
la taking matters quietly.
And now comes the second chapter.
Ther has for some time past been
rumors to the effect that efforts would
be made to oust Chancellor Boggs.
The first ball was set rolling yesterday
when a member of the board of vis
itors visited a gentleman at his offico
and asked to be given a letter which
he has In his possession and which
was written by the chancellor. It
was not turned over to tho gentleman,
but Its contents were made known,
and It will be produced later on If the
board wishes It. Just where the light
ning will strike cannot be determined.
Tho board of trustees were told that
Dr. Riley was very unpopular In Ath
ena. A paper refuting this Is being
signed by the people of Athens gen
erally. The fight Is on heavy and racy

Lazzarone, who had taken matters
very easily all the way, then chal

Aftgr a little urging Lazzarone came

Sir Walter was game to the last

able to glvd eleven pounds to Lazza-

Clifford beat him. It established one
fact, and that Is that Domino Is a
sprinter, pure and simple.
The bookmakers wero hard hit. The
odds against Domino were too short
to suit the average better, and Sir
Walter was backed to get the place,
and Domino was ignored. A select few
loaded every big book up with Lazza
