Atlanta, Aug. SO.—As a result of the
City Council's movement in the direction
of instituting imp* achmt nt proceedings
against Mayor Janies G. Woodward, that
official is a very sick man to-day. His
friends say he will not be well enough to
go to trial next Tuesday morning, the
time named in the resolution adopted by
It may be that the Mayor will never
stand trial on the charges of drunkenness
and consequent neglect of duty, under
which he now rests, since there is a
etrong sentiment in Council to let him
serve out the remaining four months of
his term, f he will remain sober enough
to attend to his official duties.
It is altogether likely that Mayor Wood
ward will appear in person before the
City Council at its meeting Tuesday, and
make an apology for his past conduct,
coupling this with a pledge to remain sober
In the future. He has signified his will
ingness to pursue this course, it is said,
if Council will agree to drop the charges
A majority of the councilmen are not
only personally friends to the Mayor, but
are also his strong political allies, and
they are disposed 10 afford him every
possible opportunity to escape the humil
iation of impeachment.
A Strong Committee.
Meanwhile, however, council’s commit
tee, consisting of Alderm-n Mayson and
Johnson and Councilman Rawson, will
proceed to formulate thf charges, under
the advice of City Attorney Anderson.
On this committee is one political friend
of the Mayor (Johnson), one political en

They form a tri< of the strongest men in
the City Council and both the Mayor’s
friends and enemies are well satisfied
with the committee’s make up.

Acting Adjutant General’® Views on
Atlanta, Aug. 30.—Acting Adjutant Gen
eral Phil G. Byrd is opposed to camping
all the regiments of the state at one
point. He thinks that every regiment
should camp somewhere In its own terri
tory, fco to give the people of that
section some benefit of the presence of
Adjt. Gen. Byrd also has his doubts as
to whether it would be a good plan to
ask the Legislature at the coming ses
sion for an appropriation for encamp
ments. He is of the opinion that it would
be better to wait a while before mak
ing any further requests of the general
assembly, as it was such a hard matter
to get he appropriation.
Speaking of the matter this morning,
Mr. Byrd said:
"I do not think it would be wise to ask
for an appropriation this year for the
purpose of a state encampment. You see,
the state is trying the soldiers to see
whm they wi-ll do. It was with great
difficulty that che present appropriation
was secured, and I think it would be
best to wait before asking for more
money. As the matter stands at pres
ent. the state is furnishing the troops
wih all necessary equipment and uni
forms and Is paying armory rent.
“It would cost the state many thous
ands of dollars to establish the state
encampments again, especially when it is
necessary #o pay the traveling expenses
of the different companies from their
home stations to Griffin and return. If
It could be arranged so that each regi
ment could camp somewhere near Its
headquarters or somewhere In Its own
territory, I believe it would be better.”

FENCING IN THEIIi HOMES.
Suit for Injunction \gaiiiMt tlie Cen
Atlanta, Aug. 30.—Suit for a way to go
borne was brought to-day by Rosser &
Carter on behalf of John D. Malsby and
Thomas J. Avery, joint owners of a lot on
Whitehall street and the Central Railroad.
If this suit fails, say the petitioners, the
families now living in five house* adjoin
ing the road's property will have to move
or be fenced in. and they will have to
take their houses with them if they expect
to live In them any more.
According to the allegations made by
the petitioners there has been an open
thoroughfare along the Central Road fiom
Whitehall street to the point where the
Atlanta Railway and Power Company
lines go under it. for about thirty years.
No one has ever laid claim to this prop
erty and It was presumed to be open for
the use of the public. At any rate, it has
been kept open and five residences have
been built, facing the thoroughfare. One
of these is owned by W. R. Beauprie, a
prominent railroad man.
Now it seems that the Central Railroad
Is engaged In fencing in its right of way
with barbed wire. The fencers yesterday
came to the property owned jointly by
Messrs. Malsby and Avery and promptly
put in their fence posts. Only the string
ing of the wire was necessary to make
prisoners of the occupants of the five col
lages. There Is, it is claimed, no other
inode of egress.
When matter had reached this state Mr.
Malsby and Mr. Avery called in counsel,
and decided to take action. Then followed
a temporary injunction upon the granting
of which the Central Railroad took up
the posts It had planted. The matter will
come before Judge Candler on Sept. 8 at
which time the question of the permanen
cy of the injunction will be argued.
