Atlanta, July 26.—Spurred up and put

Atlanta water works, the City Council
Committee, which was appointed ton d.iys

The committee me! in s* ret and refus

work. The Citizens' Committee held a

to give out what it did. The two com
mittees are w orking independently of each
other, as each is trying to get at the bot
tom of the trouble, it is altogether likely
that the truth will come out.
Insurance rates in Atlanta may go up
sharrply and at once, if the water works
system is not improved. The Executive
Committee of the Southeastern Tariff As
sociation met to-day at Asheville, and
will discuss the recent breaks in Atlan
ta’s water works. The committee is com
posed of well-known insurance men.
Among those attending the session to-day
from Atlanta are H. C. Stockdell, 1.. O.
Fletcher. Charles W. Phillips. J. S. Kamo
and Don P. Harris.

It is understood by insurance men gen

the increased rate necessary to protect (
insurance companies, while the extra
hazard of imperfect water works is on
in Atlanta, and will hold the rate sub- i

were slight. Dosses are inestimably small

running regularly. No business in the
city was more liable to serious loss than
the insurance companies. This is the gen
eral opinion of oil the insurance people.
Atlanta's Are. record for the fiscal year
has been exceptionally good, and At
lanta citizens have derived the benefit
of the corresponding low rates from in
surance companies. A number of com
panies in Atlanta write as much as $lO,-

that very large lines are carried by in

there promptly perfected their system,

Atlanta. July 26.—Investigation of the
aanltary department burial fund by a
committee of the Federation of Trades
resulted last night in a mighty sensational
The committee reported that from evl- '
dence submitted Andrew* Cook, alleged to
be a clerk in the department, was lending
money 10 the employes and charging them
20 per cent, per week interest, but the n
veli*<t Ikm co-ony j>ed the fact that
Cook is not an employe of the depariment.
He rune a grocery store near the head
quarters arid hns been doing business
with the men who w’ere hard up.
Chief Lowry said to-day that so far as
the burial fund was concerned he did not
propose to be investigated by the Commit
tee of the Federation of Trades. He said
he was ready at any moment to be inves
tigated by the Hoard of Health. The
chief said he had collected in ad about S3OO
and he believed he had paid out about $lB
1n excess of the amount received, as there
had been a great many deaths. In each
case of death $lB was paid from the fund
When a society conducted the funeral the
benefit was paid to the family anyway.
The chief said he had a complete state

was patronized, hut another had not yet

Ixirge supplies of new rails are being

building of th© extension lo Fitzgerald.
The Air Line people have decided in favor
of Fitzgerald, and the extension will be
made to that point as rapidly us possi

however, as it is quite likely n seven
mile spur will be built, connecting with
that town also, provided the people there
make proper effort to secure it. Work
is being pushed on the extension. A large
force is laying track between Lake and
Vickers, and the grading is being pushed
between Vickers and Fitzgerald. It is
probable the Air Line people will take

BIY ONLY THE BEST GINGER ALE.
The best is the Wheeler Brand of Bel
fast Ginger Ale, made by Wheeler & Cos.,
of Belfast, Ireland, from the celebrated
Cromac Springs of that city. These
springs are the property of Wheeler A
Cos., hence no other Ginger Ale manufac
turer in Ireland has those waters but
themselves. The Wheeler Ginger Ale is
made from pure Jamaica Ginger Root and
not from Red Pepper, as others are: one
Is deleterious—the other is a tonic.
For Healthfulness and Purity the cele
brated Wheeler brand of Belfast Ginger
Ale is the best.
