2 MAYOR WOODWARD IS SICK. IMPEADIYG IMPEACHMENT AF FECTED HIS HEALTH. Urportod That He May Never < ome to 'Trial—Co u act 1 Still Seem a In clined to Treat the I>rlnc Official JLeniesitly—He Ha® stronit Political aml I'lTNon.'il Friend* anil May He Permitted to Serve Out the Kent o Ilia Term. 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 Council yesterday. 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 against him. 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 emy (Mayson), and one neutral (Rawson), 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. The trial will be first instance in many years, if not the only one on record, wiiere a Mayor of a city In the South will he Investigated on charges which will cons itute an impeachment, if substan tiated. The law says the vacancy must be filled by an election within ten days af ter the office is vacated. If the office is vacated withfti three months of the end of the Mayor’s term, then the mayor pro im. shall act as Mayor until the term is finished. If Mayor Woodward is Impeached before October, a special elec tion will be called by the aldermanie hoard and the Council, a majority of both being required before the election can bo called. If the impeachment occurs and Is delayed beyond Oct. 1. then Mayor pro tern. Mays n will act as Mayor until Jan. 1, when Mayor Woodward’s term of office expires. SHOULD CAMI NEAR HOME. Acting Adjutant General’® Views on KneunipnientM. 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 the soldiers. 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.” MIMS MILL MAKE A SPEECH. Atlanta's Slnjnrnllj- t'nmpHiitn lx Growing Interesting. Atlanta. Aug. 30.—Atlanta city politico came to the front to-day with an an. nouneement from Maj. Livingston Mims, one of the four candidates for Mayor, that he would open his campaign with a epeech at the Grand Opera House next Thursday night. The Major in a vigor ous talker, and as he declares his inten tion of handling all local issues without gloves. It is safe to say his speech will he red hot.

Langley, a Mc- Cullough supporter.- After the ballots had been cast in secret, a motion to adjourn was made and a wrangle look place which ended in adjournment before the votes had been counted. Both sides ar t claiming a victory to-day. An effort on the part of the liquor dealers and their friends to have the dale of the city primary changed from Oct. 5 to Oct. 3 in* aroused the ire of the Jew ish citizens, since the last named date Is a Jewish holiday, and the Hebrew.- say they cannot be Induced to vote on this account. The liquor men want the elec tion set for the 3rd because the state ele.u tion will be held on that day ond they do not wish to close their saloons twice In one week. There Is some t.i k of postpon ing the primary until November, and this may be the solution of the difficulty. Death of .Ininew Miller. Augusta.

FENCING IN THEIIi HOMES. Suit for Injunction \gaiiiMt tlie Cen tral Railroad. 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. NEW DEPARTI RE IN LAI HENS. Tlie Reason* Case* Are Not Tried Will lie Made Public. Dublin, Ga., Aug. 30.—The Dublin Bar Association has requested the County Commissioners to publish ofßr each term of the City Court and the Superior Court the list of cases remaining upon the dock* t. and the reason they were not tried. The reason the Bar Association de sires the cases published and the reason they were not disposed of, given, is be cause the lawyers in the past have been c;itic:’s and for so many cas s remaining untried after each term of the Superior Court, and they say that they do not Intend to bear the blame any longer. The following are tHe new officers of the Bar Association: President, Ira S. Chaffee; vice present. P. L. Wade; secretary and treasurer, J. E. Burch Next Monday at Madison, Howard & Armistead, attorneys for W. H. Fordham, who was convicted at the last term of Lauren® Superior Court and sentenced to the penitentiary for life for the murder of Oscar Cannon, July 4 last, will argue a motion for anew trial before Judge Hart. The grounds art* that the verdict was contrary to the evidence and that Judge Hart, in recharging the Jury, erred in making no reference to that clause per taining to reasonable doubt, etc. He did make such reference in his first charge and, though he undertook to recharge the jury completely, he stated that his first charge must be taken in connection with the second. Rev. Charlton B. Smith, who lived five miles north of Dublin, is dead. Mr. Smith was one oi the best citizens in the county. He was a great believer in the Savannah News and has been a constant reader of that paper for forty years. He was buried Tuesday in the Smith family burying ground. SEVERE STORM IN AUGUST A. Two Men Fined for A**nol t lug (i Ultum Afciiinat Them. Augusta. Ga., Aug. 30.—Augusta was visited by a severe storm of thunder, lightning and rain at 6:30 o’clock this evening.

Page fell to the ground from the shock and bruised his face on the pavement. He was carried to the hospital nearby but It was found he was not injured by the lightning. Across the ilver at the North Augusta Natato rium, the rain was like a cloud hurst, and broke th dam in two places. In the Police Court Recorder Baxter lined John Padgett and Bud Padgett each ?50 for assaulting a witness who testified against them at the stssion of the court yesterday. The Padgetts run a bar, and charged Ernest Rushton with swearing falsely against th in. As soon as Rushton left the court room the Padgetts knocked him down stairs and were heating him, win n officers of the court interfered. Judge Fax ter declared it not only an out rag- ous assault, but a serious contempt of court. The Padgetts have sworn out a warrant against Rushton for perjury.
