In reference to the misdrrneanor camp:
"We find the rules and regulations are

that one round cf fresh meat must he

opinion of the physician in charge, ren

after reaching the camp he was a corpse

Mr. Tomlinson, the whipping boss, is
said to stand well in his section. He was
postmaster at Cedartown under Cleve
land. He makes the following statement
in reply to the charges:
“Bankston refused to work. The state
physician, resident at the camp, was
called in, examined Bankston and pro
nounced him well and able to work. I
then whipped Bankston, giving him seven
light blows with a leather strap.
“A day or two after, still refusing to
work, he was again examined by the phy
sician, pronounced able <o work, and I
gave him twenty-five or thirty blows with
the strap. A day or two after this second
whipping he was again examined by the
doctor and by him reported able for duty

“Several respectable and worthy citi

MEMORIAL TO C%TT. DAVIS.
Atlanta Friend* Have Started the
Movement for It.
Atlanta, Aug. 3.—Friends of Captain
Austin Davis, the marine, officer who was
klled in battle in far-away China, have
started a movement to honor his memory
by placing a statue or oil painting in the
new Carnegie Library, which will be
erected on the lot where the young officer
was born, at the corner of Forsyth and
Mr. Roby Robinson, who was a class
mate of Captain Davis at Annapolis, is
at the head of the movement. He will
receive subscriptions to the fund and will
direct the purchase of the memorial.
The movement will appeal to patriotic
•entlment and a fund sufficient for the
purpose will, no doubt, he raised at once.
Citizens of Savannah, where Captain
Davis lived for several years, will be in
vited to participate in the movement.
WATER FOR PR I HON FARM.

Atlanta, Aug. 3—The members of the
prison commission have gone to Milledge
ville. accompanied by Engineer Hall, for
the purpose of beginning the cons ructlcn
of a system cf waterworks at the state
prison farm, which is entirely without fire
Til* commission has had the matter
under consideration for some time. The
water supply can be secured from two
eprirgs loca ed within a mile of the farm.
The water is to be carried through a two
inch pipe, and the power is to h fur
nished by a six-horse power engine. The
work of putting in the p ant will occupy
several months and will costt the state
about $3,000. It Is believed that the insur
ance ra e on the buildings will be reduced
when the plant Is finished.
SIU-LEASK OF CONVICTS.
Right nf a L<*****• Hiilncil In n Suit
Before .Indue Candler.
Atlanta. Aug. 3. -The right of a lessee of
state convicts to sub-lease his men wis
raised in a Fuit for Newton county, be
fore Judge Candler to-day.
J. M. Smith of Oglethorpe county had
sub-leased fifty convicts to Bagley & Speer
oi -scwion county. The firm used the
vonclst and had given a $5,000 bond for
good treatment and the payment of the
hire. They failed to pay ihe hire, and
suit was brought on the bond. A demurrer
was filed in behalf of the bondsmen that
the bond was invalid because It was not
legal to sublet convicts. Judge Candler
overruled the demurrer, saying he would
hear the evidence in the case before pass
ing upon it finally.

COO*AW PHOSPHATE ROCK.
Hnnil-plrkcrn Who Dive Into the
River for the Rook.
Beaufort, S. 0., Aug. 3.—For twenty
years Coosaw river, near here, has been
constantly yielding to industry from its
wealth of phosphate rock, and the sup
ply is yet practically inexhaustible. A
dozen or more steam dredges and wash
boats, belonging to the various phos
phate plants in this vicinity, are contln
ally at work, while a large number of
negro hand-pickers, who. in the warnr\
season dive from small flats for the rock,
are employed by smaller concerns.
It is extremely interesting to the un
initiated to visU the hand-pickers. Usu
ally there is what is designated a house
boat, where a white overseer lives, whose
duty It Is to measure the phosphate rock
as It Is loaded on lighters from 80 to 100
tons capacity, from small flats which
dot the riveiwas far as the observer can
see. At about noon on Saturdays the
darkies are paid off, and the more indus
trious ones earn good money. Asa. rule
these hand-pickers are expert swimmers,
and often remain under the water for an
amazingly long time, coming to the sur
face at last with chunks of phosphate
rock equal to their own weight, obtained
in from fifteen to twenty feet of water.

Augusta, Aug. 3.—Growing out of the
Increased rates of insurance, established
in Augusta by the Southeastern Tariff
Association, a conference was held this
afternoon between the local Insurance
men and the Finance and Fire Engine
Committees of Council.
The insurance men presented to the
committees of Council the recommenda
tion.l that have been made in recent an
nual reports by the chief of the fire de
partment, and not carried out by the
city, and assured them if these recom
mendations! by Chief Roulette were car
ried out, the increase in the insurance
tales would be withdrawn.
The recommendations of the chief cover
the enlargement of the wnier mains and
the extension of the mains on various
streets, and the addition of another fire
company equipped with a chemical en
gine, hose carriage and scaling ladders.
The recommendations were referred by
the Council Committee to the commission
er of public works, to prepare an esti
mate of cost involved in carrying them
out. and submit It to the regular meet
ing of Council on Monday next.
The community is stirred up over the
incitase of 15 per cent, in insurance rntea,
ord any reasonable expenditure will be
undertaken to relieve it.

Dublin. Ga., Aug. 3.—Wednesday nlght’e
session of the Horticultural Society was
devoted to the fruit catalogue. Prof.
Scott read it? different columns, and the
society discussed and classed the sections
of the Ftate according to their producing
capacity. The toble of peaches came first
for consideration, but was left unchanged.
Mr. J. G. Matthews reported that the

stars being the insignia of rank, three

came near losing one of its two stars,
but was saved by Mr. D. O. Green *
strong words of commendation. The
Early Belle was a new' variety presented
by Mr. R. G. Snow of Fort Valley. This
peach was cultivated from the Standard
Belle, and hears ten days earlier. Mr.
A. W. Smith of Amerlcus, presented the
Ever-bearing, and it was given two stars.
Mr. La. A. Berckmans presented the
Greensboro, and It was given one star in
the middle section. The Belle of Georgia
and Admiral Dewey were placed upon
the table with a star each.
Blood plums Nos. 3 and 4 were stricken
from the table. This plum blooms too early
for commercial use, a crop rarely ever
The programme for Thursday morning
consisted of addresses and essays upon
garden topics. Prof. Keiffer of the Uni
versity of Tennessee was presented first.
Prof. Keiffer referred to the tillage of the
soli as a very important factor. In the
West, he said, orchards containing sev
eral hunched acres are found to be free
from grass and weeds.
Baltimore n Better Market.
Maj. G. M. Ryals of Savannah said those
peaches shipped by him brought twice as
much in Baltimore as in New York. He
could only account for the difference by
the neglect of the railroads in keeping
the cars Iced.
Prof. Stookbridge informed the society
of the extensive experiments made by the
Southern Pacific Railroad in building spe
cial cars and filling them with carbonic
acid gas. This was found to prevent and
stop the decomposition of fruit. Prof. M.
B. Waite, of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture said that the peach
grower must bf a skilled man, in fact he
must be a biologist, an entomologist, a
pomologist, a keen business man and in
many cases a politician. One of the main
things, said Prof. Waite, is to eelect
good trees, which Is as difficult as it is
important. Prof. Waite dwelt at length
upon the fertilization of the soil for peach
trees. One of the best commercial fer
tilizers. said he, is 10 per cent, potash, 8
per cent, phosphoric acid, and 4 per cent,
ammonia. The matter of pruning came
in for a share of the professor’s attention,
he using a blackboard to illustrate his
Following the talk of Prof. Waite, the
committee appointed at the last session
of the society upon freight rates and re
