It is positively announced on authority
that a $2".000 hotel is to be erected on St.

hotel would pay handsomely, if conveni

Macon News: The Ocmulgee is still

a change pretty soon there will be no

Cotton Will* Shut Down.
Dalton Argus: The Crown Cotton Mills
have been "shut down" several days this
week, because it has been almost impos
sible to get any cotton to run on. All
the head men have been scouring the
South for the fleecy staple, but up to
yesterday afternoon had succeeded in se
curing only forty or fifty bales. If this
dearth of the staple on the market con

mill expects to start up next week.

Lover* Leap I* More.
There Is anew city growing around the
Bibb Manufacturing Company's plant, on
the Norh Highlands, Just north of the
Coiumbus city line. In addition to the
work on the huge industrial plants there
the new city is springing up like magic.
Streets are being cut through the turf, a
ciry is being laid where once the shrub
bery and forests held sway, and fresh,
bright rafters are piercing the air, stand
ing out in sparkling relief against the
green horizon. The romantic Lovers’
Leap of the past is entirely obliterated,
and i<t would be hard for any one to find
the point from which the lovers are said
to have leaped. Should they return, they
themselves would be puzzled to find the
spot. In the first place, they would find
the basement of the new Bibb mill coming
down squarely to the edge-of the bluff
above the power house. They would not
even find the raging, tearing river at their
feet, the b**d of the river now being as
dry as a bone. The angry stream that
once foamed and raced its fretful way
around the base of the big ror-k. plowing

The Populists moss meeting at Sumter

attended. Ex-Senator Borden spoke for

Walker spoke in favor of disbanding and
uniting with the Democrats. His address
was warmly cheered. Upon the whole,
the meeting adjourned without any defi

a practical disbandment of the party or

Key West City Election.
The Key West city election, which takes
place Sept. 1, will be the liveliest for
years. For some time past, when the
city finances were in a muddle, it was
difficult to get prominent citizens to take
a place in city affairs, but now that the
city is in a prosperous condition, there
are dozens of men ready to run for aider
men, and the other offices. Politics in
ihe city and county are getting hot, and
street-corner orators can be seen and
heard every evening, where crowds gather
to hear th- news. Up to the present time,
there has not been any speaking for the
campaign on either side.
Shipment* off lgfir*.
For the week ending Aug. 11 there
were 431 cases of cigars shipped from
Tampa. These cases contained 2,205,000
cigars. For the corresponding week lost
year there were 153 cases shipped, which
contained 765,000 cigars. This is 278 cases
more than were shipped last year, and
is 1.440X00 cigars increase over last year’s
business for the period mentioned. There
have been 14,232 cases of cigars shipped
fr .m Tampa since the fir.-t of January.
For the corresponding period of last year
there were 10.306 cases shipped. This year’s
total shipments numbered 71,210,000 cigars.
The last year’s shipment numbered 51,-
530,000 cigars, which gives this year’s bus
iness an increase of 19,680,000 cigars.
Activity nt Fcrnamlinn.
The business of the port of FernandSna
from now on promises to be very ac
tive. It is understood on the very best
authority that contracts have been en
tered into for the building of some 1,509
to 2,000 feet of railroad track between
what is know’ll as the Baxter docks and
Old Town, and that along thees tracks
and t lie water front immense docks
will he erected for the use of the jetty
contractors, who, it is learned, will com
mence by Sept. 1 the work on the jetties.
Besides this work, the railroad people are
making quite extensive additions and im
provements to their shop plants, which
will make room for n very much larger
force of men. The impression also pre
vails that they (the railroad people) will
generally make improvements to all their
property here, and that they contemplate
uniting with the people in effecting im
provements at the beach that wdll make
it a very attractive resort.

Heavy Penalty for Violating tlie 1,1-

Tifton, Ga.. Aug. 14.—Tifton, for a dry
town, is remarkably fr*e from the "blind
tiger” plague, owing principally, to the
vigilance of our police in arresting of
fenders A week or so ago, a negro was
arrested for peddling whisky by the
drink during a negro Sunday School cel
ebration. and was given a liberal fine.
This did not stop the business, however,
and Saturday night Jim Holamon, col
ored, an old offender, was again placed
behind the bars, with two cas? for sell
ing whisky against him. A negro spotter
was given a marked half dollar by the
police, with which he purchased whisky
from Holamon. After his arrest, the mark
ed money was found in Holamon’s pocket.
A search of his store revealed a cracker
box full of bottled whisky, ready for the
This morning. Mayor Fulwood found
Holamon guilty in two counts, and sen
tenced him to 120 days on the streets,
ninety days of which may be remitted on
the payment of a fine of S2OO, but thirty
days must be worked out. The municipal
license of Holamon. tor running a gro
cery business, and of his wife, for run
ning a hotel, w re revoked, and they were
notified to close up their places of busi
ness within twelve hours.
The. city authorities are determined to
break up this traffic, and as Holamon has
been convicted once or twice before, his
fine was made severe.

DI G COAL FOR II IN BRIDE.
Sailor Won Her llnn<l and a Coni
From the Philadelphia Record.
St. Louis, Mo.. Aug. 12.—8 y indomitable
pluck, backed by well-seasoned muscle,
Willis V. Hill won tx beautiful bride and
n valuable coal mine in Southern Illinois.
Mr. Hill and his bride, very proud of
her athletic husband, have just passed
through this city on their honeymoon trip.
The bride told this story of how her hus
band won her and the coal mine:
"Willis is a graduate of Pennsylvania
University. Hid parents have mining in
terests near Scranton. Pa., and there ns
a boy he used to dig coal to learn the
business. That’s where he got his
strength to become such a good athlete
at college. Well, he went to Illinois, to
St. Clair county, where my papa, %vho
is Robert Smith, and I lived.
"I met him at a social entertainment.
We liked each other from the first. One
day he said: 'Nany, will you marry me?’
"I told him I would, but when I told
papa he said: ‘What? A daughter of
mine marry that dude from the East?
Why, the chap never can work for a
living. Why don’t you marry big Jim
Andrews, who’s been hankering after you
these last three years? Now’, there’s a
man for you. If this Eastern dude could
dig coal that big Jim can I might—but
what’s the use of talking? You cant
have this dude.’
"I told Willis what Papa said. He
laughed and went to father.
" ‘So, Mr. Smith, you think T am a
dude and afraid of hard work? Now,
what do you think of a match coal-dig
ging contest between big Jim Andrews
and me?’ he asked. ‘And if I win will
you let me marry your daughter?’
“Well, papa thought it was a sure thing
for big Jim, and contemptuously accept
ed Willie’ challenge. The terms of the
match required that the contestants should
dig coal for six days, eight hours a day.
and the one that dug the most to be de
clared the winner.
"Willis and big Jim met in the same
pit in one of papa's mines, but worked
independent shafts. Willie won by a
quarter of a carload.
"Papa was so pleased by the grit he
had shown that he not only gave him
consent -to our marriage, but made Willis
a present of the coal mine where the
coal digging match took place.
"And that’s our story. Romantic, isn’t

of disturbing the peace. When he was

the first thing he was asked by the court
was where he had left his coat and shirt,
and what he meant by appearing in
court in a seml-living-pleture condition.
“Your Honor,” replied the prisoner, by
name Crosby, throwing forth his chest
nnd elevating his head, “I am the orig
inal undershirt man."
“What do you mean?” asked the judge,
at the same time beckoning to the bailiff
to rap for order.
“I menn this, Your Honor," said the
defendant, “that I have go) tired of be

remarked the judge.

Newport, R. 1., Aug. 14.—1n the singles
of (the national tennis tournament K. Col

match. Paret got a lead of 5-2 In the
first set*Vfore Collins got info his game.
After that the Chicago man played much
better than his opponent, using a full,
free stroke and placing well. Paret’s
strong point was his quickness, hut this
was of little avail against such volley
ing as Collins used. The second set went
to Collins easily, Paret being unable lo
reach many of his shots. The next two
were closer, but Collins won both by his
steadiness nnd good placing.

The Close Steady nt n Net I,o*s of lit
to 21 Points.
New York. Aug. 14.—The cotton mar
ket opened steady with near months 1 to
4 points lowei and far months 2 to 4 points
higher and ruled very irregular during the
forenoon with the general tendency to
ward weakness under flurries of liquida
tion for professional and speculators’ ac
count. Weak English cables and reports
that rains had fallen in the Atlantic
states were the motive for the se’ling.
There were few buying orders in evidence,
while the trade in genera! seemed 10 be
as heavily loaded with new crop cotton
as it was short of those options two
weeks ago. The weakness in Liverpool
was credited by private cables to a scare
of holders started by reports that Man
chester spinners were soon to adopt a
short time schedule and predictions from
this side to the effect that the crop was
doing better than admitted. Promptly at
1 o'clock the weekly government report
came to hand and Immediately created
dismay in the ranks of the bulls, who
sold heavily in an effort to disgorge large
holdings. While the statement was un
questionably a bullish one. it foiled lo note
the unfavorable conditions expected. On
the break Europe and the South sold ac
tively, as did the wire houses. During the
rest of the afternoon the market was
extremely nervous and displayed feeble
recuperative energy. The close was steady
at a net loss of 16 to 21 points.

New York. Aug. 14.—Murphy & Cos. say:
Cotton in Liverpool was very feverish to
day. The market opened 2-64 to 3-64d high
eh, reacted and closed 3-64 to 2-64 below last
night’s prices, despite reports of bullish
circular issued by Neill (details not given
yet). This market ruled active and fever
ish; opened higher, reacted sharply on
selling for Southern account, and reports
of rain in some parts of the Carolinas
and Georgia. Liverpool also sold. New
buying has been attracted by expectation
of unfavorable reports by the weekly
weather bulletin. Cotton declined 10 points
this afternoon on heavy liquidating sales
owing to the weekly weather report by
the bureau being much better than ex
pected. There is also some doubt about the
bullish tendency of Neill’s circular. The
above features led to general selling, at
first by locals and later on by New Or
leans and the Continent. Receipis of new
cotton are only a moderate scale yet.
but as dry weather is now predicted for
Texas, we may look for some increase
in movement soon.
New York. Aug. 14. —Hubbard Bros &
Cos. say: Liverpool opened higher than
anticipated, but immediately declined, es
pecially on the near positions owing to
offers from Texas for September delivery.
Liverpool sent selling orders all day.which
supplied the opening demand, after the
first hour relapsed into dullness await
ing the weekly bureau report. The report
was a deterioration in the Atlantic and im
proving in the Mississippi and Alabama.
Complaints of rust in Arkansas and need
of dry weather in Texas. As the dry
weather has set in in Texas the bureau
report brought selling and as the shorts
had covered last week the decline was
rapid. Anxiety for the crop has been
transferred from rainy weather in Texas
lo dry conditions in Atlantic. Light
showers on Sunday and yesterday did not
give sufficient relief to that section.
New York. Aug. 14.—Dull demand for
brown cottons and market continues ir
regular. Print cloth yarns quiet hut
steady. No change In bleached cotton
and prices steady. Wide sheetings quiet
und unchanged. Denims, ticks, plaids and
other coarse colored goods in indifferent
demand with retail sellers. Ginghams

ferently and market easy with prices ir
regular. Hosiery and underwear for next
spring in fair request.

The Market Reflected Strength in All
New York, Aug. 14.—T0-day’s stock
market gave a marked exhibition of
strength, reflecting as it did an upward
movement in all classes of securities. No
doubt the chief impetus to the rise wi
manipulative orders, particularly as in the
steel group. Reports of a possible amica
ble adjustment of the wage schedule \wa
responsible for a rise of 3 points in Amer
ican Tin Plate and 1(51*4 in kindred pro
perties. The buoyancy of this group ra
diated throughout the entire market and
influenced pool operations in other stock®.
As yesterday, the leading railroad shares
occupied n commanding position in the
market, exceptionally large blocks of the
Atchisons, Grangers and Pacific* being
taken at improvements ranging from *
large fraction to 1% in St. Paul. Practi
cally the only laggards to the upward
trend of railroad stocks were Baltimore
and Ohio and Southern Pacific. The fir®:
mentioned was sold heavily on Its July
eahnlngs. which fell off $239,126 net. An
effort was made to raid Southern Pacifl
on the announcement of the death of its
president, C. P. Huntington, but th
opening offer of a block of 2.500 shares at
33*/i, which was % of 1 per cent
yesterday’* close, was readily absorbed.
Indication* that the stock was to be sup
ported influenced the bears to transf* r
the attack to Suger. This stock display
ed n good deal of irregularity and closed
As the effective buying of the railroad
stocks became more marked, many of the
Usually inactive stocks participated in the
dealings and improved materially. Des
pite the exceptionally heavy gold en
gagement* for export to-morrow, aggre
gating $8,162,000, no change in the local
monetary situation occurred. Abroad,
however, reflection of the gold drain from
this country was noted in a decline in
money and discount* In Dondon. and ex
change on London at Paris and Berlin
also yielded. Some recovery was made
early in the day in sterling exchange quo
tations. Rut subsequently the market be
came easier on sales of bills against to
morrow’* shipment*. The sub-treasury
statement nhowcd a net cash gain of $3.-
014,000 on yesterday's operations, while
its debit balance with the clearing house
to-day increased to $1,936,716.
Statements of the tonnage in eastbound
shipments of provisions and cereals by
the leading trunk lines indicate a heavv
gain over the previous week’s movement
to the seaboard. In the closing dealings
of the stock market there were indica
tions that the short lines were Hnt
