Atlanta, Ga. # Aug. 20. In an address
just issued to the county democratic or
ganizations Vice President Ed T. Brown
of the State Democratic Executive Com
mittee, asks for information to be used

office address of the Democratic nominee
for state senator from your district, also
the name and post office address of the

ARMORIES NOT TAXABLE.
Attorney General Decided That They
Are Public Property.
Atlanta. Aug. 20.—Attorney General Ter

subject to taxation. The question was re
ferral to him by the Governor some time
ago on complaints from Richmond and
Chatham counties, where the tax re
ceivers demanded that the military or

The officers of the companies refused to j
do so and appealed :he matter to the
Governor, who asked the attorney general 1

the tax receivers that armories are rated
as public property and are exempt from
taxation by statue. He bases his decis

ATLANTA AFTER THE MOM MEAT.

Should lie Erected There,
Atlanta, Aug. 20.—The Atkinson monu- j
mervt fund has reached over $2,000 and it
is expected that the amount will be made
SIO,OOO within a short time. It Is proposed
to erect a monument something on the
style of that to the late Benj. H. Hill,
which now stands in the State Capitol.
Just where the monument is to be lo
cated has not been decided. Some of the
subscribers want it in Newnan, while oth
ers say it should be in Atlanta. The move
ment for the monument was started in
the home of the late Governor, and it is
contended for that reason it should be
there. Some of the friends of Mr. Atkin
son say, however, that when he was Gov
ernor he ceased to be a local c'itlzen and
was a resident of the capital of the state
and for that reason the monument should
le placed in the Capitol building.

CROPS IN 1.%l RE\S COt NTY.
Cotton Yield Ik Short but Coin Ik in
Dublin. Ga., Aug. 20—Cotton is begin
ning to come in at a lively rate now,
more than seventy-five bales being re
ceived Saturday. The cotton crop in this
county is short, the percentage as com
pared to last year’s crop being about 75.
Corn is very fine. One day last week an
ear of corn from the farm of Capt. J. L.
Manning of Donaldson was brought to the
city which measured eleven inches in
length and eight and one-half inches In
circumference. The corn upon the ear
weighed one and one-quarter pounds.
There were 1.440 grains upon the ear. For
ty-five ears of this corn will make a
bushel. The ear was an average one and
was not by’ any means the largest in
Capt. Manning's field.
A large quantity of peas. cane,
hay’, potatoes and corn will be
made by Eaurens county farmers this
year, and they will be In good shape this
fall, despite the small cotton crop: The
farmers of this county are learning co
live at home and raise cotton only as a
surplus crop. A few years ago cotton
was the principal crop.
Mr. Andrew J. Fugua. one of the oldest
citizens of the county’ was buried in the
Dublin cemetery. He was nearing his 94th
birthday when stricken.

Beaufort, St. C., Aug. 20.—The first cot

grown on Mr. B. S. Brown’s place, some
two miles from town. Notwithstanding
the long and severe drought the product
already stored in his cotton house, con
sisting of both sea island and short sta
ple cotton, cannot readily be equaled in
excellence of quality. Mr. Brown is a
practical and experienced planter, and one
of the most enterprising citizens of this
Short Crop of Cotton.
Cameron. Ga., Aug. 20.—Most of the
farmers In this section have given up all
hope of anything beyond a half crop of
cotton, and many wi 1 make only a fourth
of a crop. Cane, potatoes and peas urc*
declining rapidly every day for the want
of rain. Cotton bolls as large as guinea
eggs are shedding and fal ing to the

Norfolk. Va., Aug. 20.—The fiiet bale
of new cotton from North Carolina for

day evening. It graded middling, and was
in good condition and of good staple.

Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 20.—Pete Ferrattl of
luisvllle whipped Eddie Mack of New
York in a six-round “go" to-night before
a swell local athletic club. Several hun
dred enthusiastic sports witnessed the
mill and heartily’ cheered the winner.
Both men entered the ring at 120, but
the Italian appeared in the best form, i
Mack took severe punishment throughout
the battle. He was game to the last, and !
wanted the fight to go on, as did his
seconds, but the club officers stopped the |
mill to save Mack from a knockout. The
referee refused to decide the fight, but
the president of the club announced in
favor of the Italian, who was as fresh as
in the first round, while Mack waa ex
A feature of the fight was the attendance
of half a hundred shirt-waist men, clu*
members, who. by previous agreement,
left their coats and suspender© at home
and appeared in negligee shirts with belts
and flannel trousers. It is believed to be
the first step towards the general intro
duction of the custom here.
Ul HNED THE OLD BANK.
Tax Digest of Richmond Showed a
llcuvy Increase of Valnei.
Augusta, Ga., Aug. 20.—A fire occurred
in Hamburg. S. C.. across the river, to
day’ that destroyed the old Bank of Ham
burg building, a noted institution in its
day. It was u brick building and was
erected in 1837.
In the days of state banks the notes
issued by the Bank of Hamburg passed
current anywhere in the country and were
regarded as good as gold. The old
building was used as a negro tenement.
The fire also destroyed about 100 feet of
the trestle hading to the new bridge built
across the Suvanntah river by the South
er n Railway.
The tax digest of Richmond county was
complet'd to-night and forwarded to At

Sanford, Fla., Aug. 20 Jacksonville has
jut sent a delegation to Washington. D.
C., to consult Gen. Wilson, IT. S. A., chief
of engineers, about removing the water
hyacinths from the St. Johns river. So
far only temporary relief is in sight, as
there is no appropriation . for such un
usual obstructions. Again, it is argued
that the side streams and creeks are not
navigable, and therefore do not come un
der the head of government work. This,
however, is false reasoning, as they emp
ty into the St. Johns river their hya
cinth blockades, and for this reason any
plan to clear this great river of the pest
must of necessity include the cleaning out
of all contiguous creeks, coves and
streams No temporary relief is worth
much, and only Congress can grant and
provide for the permanent relief that is
demanded by all the various interests
along the St. Johns river from Sanford
The recent burning of the big celery
farm barn of Mr. A. Robbins, near this
city, is quite a loss to him as well as
something of a s< tback to his extensive
celery growing operations. Last year his
crop was curtailed for want of suitable
lumber for bleaching boards, ami this he
bad provided against for the coming sen
son bv a full supply of seasoned lumber.
But this was in the new barn and was
consumed, causing him to lay in another
supply before bleaching time arrives.
The large increase in celery growing in
this county has made an increased de
mand upon mflls already’ crowded with
lumber orders, ns the new pineapple
sheds and orange grove sheds are taking
nearly the entire output of many of the
mills. In fact, millionaire John B. S-tet
aon, at DeLand. put up his own mill to
supply sheds for hi? extensive groves and
pineries. There are no dull times around
saw mills in Orange county.
