Obear Asking Him lo OrgiinUe a
Cavalry Regiment and Tender It
to the Government —Hr Mould Hr
Glad to Do So If Assured First That
the Government Wonld Accept It.
Atlanta, July 30—To fight th Chinese
•toms to be the desire of many Georgians,
if the number of letters on this line re
ceived by Inspector G> neral Obear are
any true* indication of their wishes. ITo
has re vived several letters recently from
military trim in different parts of Geor
gia. asking that he organise a cavalry
regiment for service in Ch'na. and tender
it to the T'niied States government.
This morning ("apt Hope of the Gov
ernor’s Horse Guard and Col. Obear dis
cussed the matter, but no conclus on was
reached. Oapt. Hope, offered the Horse
Guard as the first troop and said he
thought there would be very little trouble
In getting a thousand more men, if the
United States government would notify
them that their services were wanted. The
idea is to organise a regiment something
on the order of the Rough Riders which
played a prominent part in the Santiago
One of the letters assured Col. Obear
of two hundred men who would and were
anxious to enlist if they saw any chance
of fighting Various suggestions were
made in the letters as to the best plans
for organising the command and how it
could be done quickly.
The state of affairs at present is so un
certain that Coi. Obear has not decided
as to what will be done. He said this
morning it would be necessary to have
the assurance of the government that the
regiment would be used before he would
undertake the work of organising it. He
said there would be but little trouble in
securing a full quota of men in a very
short time, and that they could be ready
for service within a month, provided the
men knew they would be given a chance
Georgia is the only state in the Union
that has a regiment of cavalry. Other
states have several troops, but Georgia
is the only one having nn organized reg
iment. Capt. Hope thinks every troop
in the First Georgia Cavalry would vol
unteer if such a regiment was wanted.
The letters received by Col. Obear.
stated that if the regiment was raised
he would be asked to take command. The
letters indicate that Georgia is ready at
any time to offer troops to the United
States when they are needed.

Both Mercer and the University Will
Make Ike Change.
Atlanta. July 30 —Discussion of the sub
ject at the recent meeting of the Bar
Association at Warm Sprlnga. will proh
bably lead to the adoption of a two-year
law course at both the University of Geor
gia and Mercer University. Beginning
in 1901, it is very likely that the two-year
course will be introduced. The catalogues
of both Mercer and the University of
Georgia recently Issued, have notices to
the effect In September of next year, end
all students who desire to finish the course
In one year had best enter this fall.
Senator A O. Bacon, tvho is e mem

study. Clem Steed, who is secretary of

A TEMPORARY INJUNCTION.
Atkinson's Road Restrained From
I'slni* Tracks of Hurt's.
Atlanta, July 30.—The fight between the
Hurt and Atkinson interests over street
railway fianchiscs has broken out anew.
The Central Trust Company of New York,
the trustee of $225,000 of bonds, presented
a bill for an Injunction to Judge Gober
last Friday, claiming that the city of At
lanta is powerless to authorize the Atlan
ta Rapid Transit Company to occupy
Jcintly i h the Atlanta Railway and
Power Company the tracks on Peachtree
and Whitehall streets for any distance or
at any point, cr to go on these streets
at all. The claim i made that cne of the
old horse car lints, the Atlanta Street
Rai’road Company, had an exclusive
rght to all th" streets occupied by It,
nnd that neither the city nor the state
or both toge her can Interfere. The bill
was sworn to by G. Sherman, vice presi
dent of the company.
Judge Gober granted an injunction on
Friday restraining the city, the Atlanta
Rapid Transit Company, and the Atlanta
Railway ar.d Power Company from pro
ceeding any further with condemnation
proceedings that have been under way
for some time, and which hod in view the
Immediate Joint use by the Atlanta Rapid
Transtit Company, and the Atlanta Rail
way and Power Company of the. latter's
tracks on Peachtree street between Au
burn and Bdgewood avenues.
It Is claimed In the bill of the Central
Trust Company that while the Atlanta
Rapid Transit Company's charter was
granted after the date of the. charter of
the Atlanta Street Railway Company. It
is void under the constitution of the United
States in so far as It is given the right
(o go on any of the streets occupied by
the Atlanta Street Railroad Company.
This makes what lawyers call a federal
question and if the Central Trust Com
pany should lose In the slate court It
appeal to the United States Supreme
Court, Judge Gober was unwilling to hear
the case and set It down to be heard be

WILL FIGHT THE ASSESSMENT.
Snvnnnah, Florida nnd Western Ex
pected to Contest It.
Atlanta, July 30.—1 t is expected that the
Savannah. Florida and Western Railroad
will make a fight on the tax assessment
made by Controller General Wright sev
eral days ago, as nothing has been heard
from the officers concerning the assess
ment since they were notified, some fif
teen days ago. The road has until Sat
urday to notify the Controller General
whether or not It will accept his assess
ment or fight It.
The returns were made by the road
some time ago and were not satisfactory
to Col. Wright. He thought the mileage
was more valuable than given in by the
railroad, and notified the officials to that
effect, requesting at the same time that
the value be Increased. The road re
fused to Increase the first figures, and
the Controller assessed the value a* what
he thought it should be. In event that
the railroad is not satisfied with the as
sessment of the Controller General, appli
cation can be made to a board comprised
of three members, one appointed by the
railroad company and two appointed by
REQUISITION FOR JONES.
Was Indicted for Enticing Laborers
Ont of Georgia.
Atlanta, July 3ft.—Governor Candler to
day issued a requisition on the Governor
of South Carolina for James Jones. The
case is a most unusual one. Jones Is
charged by R. A. Hutchins, a prominent
citizen of Elbert county, with, enticing la
bor away from him. Hutchins had a num
ber of negroes employed under contract to
work for him a year, and several weeks
ago. Jones by offering them higher wages,
induced them lo go into South Carolina,
so It is said.
It is (seldom that a man Is arrested on
the charge of enticing away the labor cf
another, and It Is a rare occurrence In
Georgia. Many of the negroes In the state
have but little conception of the value of
a contract, and It Is not a very hard mat
ter to get them to break It. Jones knew
this, and it is claimed secured a number
of hands from Hutchins. He was indicted
by the grand Jury and will be prosecuted
