2 GEORGIANS READY TO FIGHT. MANY INDICATE A DESIRE TO GO TO THE FAR BAST. ILflter* fl'rHtfii t, liispeeior (ifßfnil 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 campaign. 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 to fight. 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. ROBINSON STARTS FOR CHINA. He M'lll Set I'p a Fully Equipped Pnstoflice at Tnku. Atlanta, July 30.—Henry M. Robinson, chief clerk of the Fourth Division Railway mail service, left Atlanta to-day at noon for Washington to draw supplies for a United States postofTice which he will es tablish at Taku, China. He will spend two or three days In Washington and will proceed from there to San Francisco and thence to China One assistant who has not yet been named will accompany him. At Taku, the base of supplies for the American army, he will set up his office Immediately on his arrival. He knows Just what to do in the pre mises. for he has had experience In setting up poutoffices in foreign lends. He went to Porto Rioo in 1896 with Gen. Mllea and within an hour after he landed on the island was selling stamps, receiving letters to be sent hack to America and dealing out welcome letters from home to the sol diers. In the year that Mr. Robinson re mained in Porto Rico he built up such a perfect American mail system there that the government wanted him again when the troops went to China. He will remain in China with the army postoffice until the American troops are withdrawn from the empire. PERSONAL PROPERTY SOLD. Winding I’p Affairs of Southern Ag ricultural Works.

TWO YEARS COURSE IX DAW. 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.

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 ber of the board of trustees of the uni versity, said several weeks ago, that the trustees would insist on the two-year study.

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 fore Judge Lumpkin on the Bth of next September, 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 the state. 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 by Hutchins. GENEROUS CAPITALISTS.
