NEWS OF A DAY IN
ATLANTA NOT SATISFIED
BIT WILL TRY TO GET ALONG
WITH RATE REDUCTIONS.
Reduction* Allowed by the Rail
roads Anionnt to About fit a Car
from Both Ohio River Points and
the Large Eastern Cities— Will
Other Cities Now Be Entitled to a
Proportionate Reduction in Their
Atlanta, Dec. B.—Atlanta's commit
tee of seven appointed to confer with
the railroads with a view to securing
lower freight rates, completed its work
to-day and will make its report to the
City Council to-morrow.
The railroad officials offered Atlanta
reductions both from the East and
West on all the classes and on many
commodities, but the concessions fell
far short of what the committee hoped
for and expected to get.
That the committee is rather disap
pointed is evident from its report,
which makes no recommendation as to
adopting or rejecting the proposition of
the railroads, but merely states its be
lief that these reductions will prove
helpful to the general business interests
of the city and that the railroads are
considering other reductions, which
may be made.
These reductions run all the way
from X cent to 16 cents per 100 pounds,
the average being about 5 cents per
100. This means an average reduction
of about $5 per car of 40,000 pounds.
The reductions apply from Ohio river
points on the one hand and from New
York, Baltimore and other Eastern
cities on the other. The reduction on
first-class freight is the greatest, be
ing about 9 cents per 100 pounds all
the way through.
A question which is not discussed in
the report is whether or not these re
ductions would necessitate reductions
to other cities in this territory. If that
should be done the alleged discrimina
tion would not be gretitly relieved.
The conference did not deal at all
with rates within the state. That sub
ject will be handled through the State
Soldier a Suicide.
William Nimmo, private in Company
K, Sixteenth Infantry, stationed at
Fort McPherson, committed suicide
last night by shooting himself through
the brain with a Krag-Jorgensen rifle.
He sat in a chair, put the muzzle of
the gun in his mouth and pulled the
trigger with his toe. Nimmo was
from Patterson, N. J. He was 47
years old and had served in the army
twenty-five years. He left no note
stating the cause of his suicide.
Jordan Wants Mass Meetings.
Hon. Harvie Jordan of Monticello,
president of the Southern Cotton
Growers' Protective Association, to
day issued a letter to the farmers, mer
chants and bankers east of the Mis
sissippi calling on them to hold mass
meeting in every county on Dec. 17,
for the purpose of taking steps to hold
all the cotton which has not been mar
keted. until prices have been raised
at least 3 cents per pound.
Uave Up His Missionary Plan.
Barry A. Etheridge, who left Atlanta
July 25 to go to China as a mission

of the severe illness of his wife at Los
Angeles, and has returned to Atlanta

Mrs. Julia A. Young of Boston, who

The ease will probably be heard to
morrow. Mrs, Young is trying to force

demands. Hence the peace proceed
