Knnnull Money to Make the Neee*-
irnry Repair*—Member* of the
Board Who Did Not Approve Till*
Atlanta. Aug. 9.—Additional interest has
oeen aroused in the waterworks situation
by the announcement that $4.W> has been
fepent for beautifying the pumping sta
tion grounds without authority of the
water board, while the crying need for
new valves could not be supplied on ac
count of a lack of funds.
Since the expense was incurred by Supt.
Park Woodward it has received formal
approval from a majority of the members,
but two of them—Judge George Hillyer
and Commissioner Litt Bloodworth —were
not at The meeting when tlie sanction
was given. They have endeavored to se
cure a reconsideration, but have failed.
The item over which a division has
arisen in the board amounts to $4,966 for
“building and grounds repairs.*’ A sum
mer house was erected, terraces laid off
and flowers planted.
Mr. Bloodworth, in speaking of the af
fair to-day, said:
“I cannot approve expenditures of the
ci'ty’s money for beautifying grounds
w'hen there is such a scarcity of funds for
our broken machinery. I don't really
know how much of this $4,966 was spent
for this work, hut I am sure nearly all
Of it was. There have been some slight
permanent repairs to the buildings out
there, but as a matter of fact the sta
tion shows little repairs outside of the
summer house on the knoll, the terraces
and the flowers.
“I tried to get an itemized statement
from the waterworks office of the expendi
ture. but I was told by one of the offi
cials that the accounts are kept in such
a manner that the various items cannot
“Now. I am sure Col. Woodw'ard had
the approval of the majority of the board
members before he spent the money, but
that does not constitute au4hori?y. T
think it is due members who object to
such expenditures that they be given a
chance to record their votes against it.
“As long ns I am a member of the loard
I will not approve such expenditures un
der the circumstances. I will quit the

Chicago, Aug. 9—The Populist National
Executive Committee .held two sessions
here to-day. but contrary to expectations,
Senator Marion Butler of North Carolina,
the chairman of the National Committee,
was not present, and no one seemed to
know* whether he would come to Chicago
for the meeting.
Harry Tracy of Texas was the only
other member of the committee who was
The ' ommittee discussed informally the
withdrawal of Charles A. Towne, the
Populist candidate for Vice President, but
the members did not fix upon a date for
the calling together of the entire Na
tional Committee. The Executive Com
mittee has no power to fill the vacancy.
This must be done by the Notional Com
mittee, and it is apparenrly expected that
it will meet before long and select Adlai
E. Stevenson as the Populist candidate
for Vice President.
There seemed to be a good deal of ap
prer.hension among the members of the
committee in regard to the attitude of
Senator Butler on the vice presidential
situation. There has been a strong rumor
to the effect that the North Carolina Po
pulist would take the bit between his teeth
and insist that a Populist be named for
Vice President on the Populist ticket.
It is said that a number of the commit
tee take the other view of the situation
and believe Mr. Bryan will be able to win
over Senator Butler in case the latter
takes an antagonistic stand regarding the
selection of Mr. Stevenson.

that the remainder of the crew, twenty
four men, of the stranded British steam

Hafteras to-night by the life-savers from
Creed’s Hill and Cape Hatteras stations,

now being cared for by Capt. Etheridge
of the Cape Hatteras station. At 6
o'clock this evening the ship had twenty
seven feet of water in her hold and was
fast settling, her forward portion being
then nearly all under water.
She lies about twelve miles southeast of
Cape Hatteras lighthouse, and her posi

can be done toward saving either the ship
or cargo, and both will prove a -total loss.
The accident, as before reported, was due
to the unusually smoky weather which
prevailed this morning.

BRATED PIPPIN APPLE CIDER.
This pure elder is served on steamers on
the American line, and at the Waldorf-As
toiia and leading family grocers in New
Yo: k city.
Paulding s Pippin cider is made from
the pure juice ot hand pi< ked apples from
Ids own mill on the premises. It is abso
lutely pure apple juice, and all the effer
vescence is natural, and we guarantee it
to be the choicest cider in ihe world.
Leading physicians in New York and
Brooklyn recommend this cider to their
patients. its perfect purity is guaranteed.
In Paulding's Pippin cider, only Long Is
land Newton’s Pippins are 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 app*es is very great.
You will know the' difference between
crushed app es and ground apples if you
take some stems and chew them, you will
find that bitter taste which is not with
Paulding’s crushed apples. This cider has
not the extreme sweetness of the Russet
cider, and everyone will rind the Pauld
ing s Pippin cider just right to take with
dinner. LIPPMAN BROS.,
