FENCING ITS RIGHT OF WAY.
CENTRAL, RAILROAD SEEKING TO
PERFECT ITS TITLE.
People Livings Alonjr the Line Be
tween Atlanta and East Point Are
Indignant Beeanee They Think
the Rond Cromtlng;. Are to Be
Fenced in—Complaint AVn. Made to
Coonty Commissioners and It May
Go to Conrt.
Atlanta, Aug, 2.-The fencing in of its
right of way between East Point and At
lanta by the Central Railroad bas stirred
citizens along the line to indignation.
Posts are being rapidly put in place and
the residents say that a number of road
crossings will bo fenced up.
Some of the indignant men are said to |
have armed themselves and to have
threatened to shoot any one who dares to
stretch wires across the highways.
The object of the company is said to be j
to perfect ite title. When the chert road j
was built the Central claimed the county .
encroached upon its right of way. Litiga- j
tion seemed probable, but after an inves
tigation, it was found the Central had
no deeds to that portion of its land be
tween East Point and Atlanta. Careful
searching of the records failed to bring the
lost records to light, it is said, and the
present action of the company is attrib
uted to a desire to perfect its title.
There will probably be a question raised
as to whether the roads are public or pri
A delegation of enraged citizens called
on Judge E. B. Rosser, chairman of the
County Board this morning, and urged
that prompt action be taken to prevent the
blocking of the roads. Judge Koseer at
once called a meeting of the board for T':3o
o’clock this afternoon. He also directed
Chief Turner of the county police force to
notify the Central that it must not ob
struct the roads.
At the meeting of the County Board no
action was taken, the county attorney ad
vising them that the proper thing for the
citizens to do would be to test their rights
in the courts.
DIED AFTER HA P.D WHIPPING.
Authorities Investigating: Death of
Atlanta, Aug. 2.—The Prison Commis
sion is investigating the death of George
Bankston, who died at Sugar Hill mining
camp, several months ago, shortly after
being severely whipped.
The grand jury of Bartow' county has
indicted A. T. Tomlinson, the whipping
boss at the Sugar Hill mining camp for
State Warden Jake Moore left for P.ar
tow county several days ago to look into
the afTair and the condition of the camp
generally. He will make a report to the
Prison Commission and that body may also
The mine at Sugar Hill Is operated by
Joel Hurt and others. Should it develop
that the camp is being improperly man
aged, and the convicts ill treated, it may
be abolished as was the one in Coffee
county several days ago.
Bankston is well known around Atlan
ta, having been charged with being im
plicated with the murder of Policeman
Fonder by John Pend ley several years
ago. Policeman Ponder was shot down
by a burglar in a store on Wall street.
•nd so far the police have never solved
At one time John Pendley, who was
convicted of the burglary, and who was
serving a sentence in the Chatahoochpe
brick - amp. confessed that he was pres

cated Barkston as the man who did the
killing. When the trial came off Pendley
denied his confession and the case fell
STATE MAY Bl ll.l> NEW DEPOT.
Depot ( omniiKftlon I* tn\lon> to Set
tle the 'lnner.
Atlanta, Aug. I.—The Atlanta depot
problem has fobbed up again. Gov. Cand
ler to-day call'd a meeting of the depot
conaninicn created by the last general
aestmbiy. The. Governor said, referring to
• We will meet on the 14:h to settle with
the railroads regarding their interest in
the depot here. When the matter i* set
tled we will take up plans of building
anew station. For some time past the
city newspapers have been referring to
the faci that we were considering plans
for but ding anew d-pot for Atlanta, and
every paper In Georgia has been protest
ing against it. There is great prejudice
against the town because it has outstrirp
ed the others and oth r cities are jealous
because they thing the state i3 inclined
to build a depot for Atlanta.
“This is not true, however. It Is not
the idea of the state to build a depot for
Atlanta, but to build one herd for the
state on the state’s own property. The
state does not own property in every
city in Georgia, while It does own valu
able property in Atlanta It owns the, de
pot in Atlanta, for that matter, and any
thing the state can do for the better
ment of Its railroad, the Western and
Atlantic, will be the better for the state.
The people have got the wrong impres
sion concerning our plan."
GOVERNOR OI KEHS REWARD.
Thinks There In a Peculiar State of
Affairs in Mclntosh.
Atlanta, Aug. 2.—The sheriff of Mcln
tosh county, in making application for a
reward for Hector Jackson, a negro who
smothered his infant child to death,
elates the negro is In hiding on Sapelo
Island, four miles from Darien, and ad
mits that he is unable to catch him. He
eays he has sworn in a posse of twenty
men, but the man is in an impenetrable
swamp and cannot be gotten out.
The Governor offered a reward of 1150,
but remarked that it was a peculiar
elate of affairs for a sheriff to admit
that a negro was in hiding In the county
where he committed the crime and that
he was unable to capture him. The Gov
ernor said it was this same sheriff who
cost the state $5,000 last year on account
of the trouble which happened at Dar
ien, caused by the two negroes named
A reward of $l5O was also offered for
the arrest of the assasln who shot Ar

BRATED PIPPIN APPLE CIDER.
This pure elder la served on steamers on
the American line, and at the Waldorf-As
toria and leading family grocers In New
To: k city.
Paulding's Pippin cider Is made from
the pure Juice of hand picked apples from
his own mill on the premises. It Is abso
lutely pure apple juice, and all the effer
vescence is natural, and we guarantee 14
to be the choicest cider In ihe world.
Leading physicians In New York and
Brooklyn recommend this cider to their
patients. Us perfect purity Is guaranteed.
In Paulding's Pippin cider, only Long Is
land Newton’s Pippins aie 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 and ground apple's if you
take some stems and chew them, you will
find that bitter taste which Is not with
Paulding’s crushed apples. Thts cider has
not the extreme sweetness of the Russet
elder, and everyone will find the Pauld
