.Atlanta, July 2T.—A fifth candidate may
cntor the race for May" in the person of
J. J Mnd.lox, now Councilman from the
Mr. Maddox has aevrral time? to
have Mator Woolwrl impeached, and
is tne leader of the anti-miministrfltion
forces in the City Council. If he enters
the ra:e he rvill hove the support of
Dr. L. G. Broughton, ami the followers
of that minister. Four men. F. P. Hire.
I S. Mitchell, Livingston Mims and Nym
McCullough, are now running.
Sensational charges made hy Dr. L. G.
Broughton in his sermon last Sunday
night, to the effect that certain members
of the City Council hove borrowed wme
$60,000 from H. M. Atkinron on property,
worth one-third of that amount, have
brought forth a salty reply from Mr. At
kinson. In a card printed in to-day’s
Journal, he says:
"The Consolidate*), the Atlanta Constitu
tion and Dr. Broughton are in one bed.
Just whether one or the other of this
Interesting trio will not sooner or later
have to get up with fleas on him. is a
question 1 am unwilling to de< idr; but it
will be worth while to watch this circus,
•nd see jf one or more doesn't sooner or
later Jump up .- r;H rung himself and
making faces at the others.”
Of Dr. Broughton Mr. Atkinson says:
"It would be humiliating and degrad
ing to all who love religion to read th*
ravings of this man and to notice how
he tries to make his harangue look like
a sermon by dragging in at ks conclusion
the holy name of the Savior and one or
two sentences, such as, ‘Flee from sin
find the wrath to come,’ and so forth,
except for the fact that the people have
learned to regard him as ons possessed
of an insane desire for sensationalism,
find hence to be forgiven as one know
ing not what he does.”
He Explain* thr Lomu.
Mr. Atkinson explains the loan transac
tions by saying that the Southern Bank
ing and Trust Company, of which he is
president, acting simply ns agent for
Eastern capitalists, loaned money to cer
tain men, who are now' In Council, on
property worth far more than the
amounts of the loans. He says:
"Neither myself nor the Georgia Elec
tric Light Company, nor the Atlanta
Rapid Transit Company, nor any corpor
ation or individual having one dollar’s
worth of interest whatever in any of the
franchises obtained or applied for by the
electric light company or street car corn
pony, have ever loaned to any member of
the Council or their immediate connec
tions. a single dollar.”
In conclusion, Mr. Atkinson says:
"The last attack Is but a part of a
great scheme. Two ihlngs are aimed at.
One is to vilify and abuse the present
councilmen so as to coerce them into a
destruction of the interests I represent,
and the other is to elect a new' Council
that will give 10 my enemies everything
they want on their own terms, and will
give my Interests nothing."

Talk of Horinrttnn of Tnirn on Ac

Atlanta. July 27.—The big increase
shown in tho returns of taxes made by
various counties to the controller general
has caused some talk of a probable re
duedon In the state tax rate. If such a
reduction Is made it w¥l be very small.
If the-increase in tax returns amounts to
over $10,000,000 this year, the net profit of
the state out of that amount would only
amount to about $47,000. The gross profit
would 553,003, but 7 per cent, of that

said Mr. Wright, “if there is an increase
in the returns of e\ en $15,000.0<m. The in
crease gives l-Tut little more money into
the state treasury, as 7 per cent of what
we get in has to go for the expenses of
collecting the taxe. It is true that the
appropriations this year are not os large
as they were last, and we will be enabled
to lower the rate somewhat on that ac
count. I.ast year w** expected a big in

Atlanta, July 27.—The Supreme Court
finished hearing argument this afternoon.
There have been 962 cases heard by the
justices, who have been very busy since
last October. There have been about two

Atlanta. July 27.—William H. Cole, a
large denier in fruit, who claims New
York as hits home, has run into trouble
In Georgia. He is charged with buying
fruit in Barnesville, Griffin and Forsyth
and failing to pay for it.
Cole wo? arresred in Atlanta Tuesday

Columbus, Ga„ July 27.—Columbus Ma
sons will have a big rally Monday night
at which Grand Master Davis will be the
guest of honor. The meeting is for the
purpose of rounding up the stock needed
to complete n fund for a four-story Ma
sonic temple soon to be constructed at a
cost of $60,000.
The breach between the contractors and
mill men and their former employes was
visibly widened to-day by the failure of
the movement to have their differences set
tled by arbitration. Mayor Chappell and
the president of the Board of Trade ad
dressed a communication to both sides,
proposing arbitration as means of adjust
ing the matters at issue. The carpenters
and joiners replied agreeing to the propo
sition, but the mill men and contractors
sent communications this afternoon de
fining, on the ground that there was
ftothlng to arbitrate. This probably means
war to the end between them. It is un
derstood that carpenters will be brought
from other cities to complete the jobs now

Leading physicians in New York and
Brooklyn recommend this cider to their
patients. Its ptrfict purity is guaranteed.
In Paulding's l'lppln cider, only Long Is
land Newton's Pippins ate used. The ap
ples are left on the trees until late in Oc
tober when they are hand picked and
placed In a dry room to ripen.
Paulding says "the apples are thorough
ly crushed in his own mill and the juice
pressed out and run into sweet clean
casks.” The difference between crushing
and grinding apples Is very great.
You will know the difference between
crushed app es nnd g-ound apples If you
take some sterns and chew them, you will
find that bitter taste which is not with
Paulding's crushed apples. This elder has
not the extreme sweetness of the Russet
cider, and everyone will find the Pauld
<ngs Pippin elder Just right to take with
dinner. LIPPMAN BROS ,
