HOW IT STANDS.
Tbe Rejected Rid* fur the T. M. C.
Considerable corn meh t has been made upon
the rejected bids for the proposed building of
the Y. M. C. A. at the corner of Pryor and
Wheat streets in Atlanta.
A reperter, thinking that some explanation of
the facts would be of interest to the public,
called on one of the committee this morning and
asked why the jrids were rejected. The reply
was on the terms that they reserved the reject
any or all bids from the beginning. Another
reason assigned was that some of the bidders
wanted more time to figure upon the cost of the
building and aaother reason was that there
was not, among all that made a proposition, one
who lived in Atlanta, and the building commit
the preferred letting the contract out to seme
one *f Atlanta. He said that there was not a
single bid on the whole building made by an
Atlanta man, and if they could get the building
erected by Atlanta men as cheap as they could
by foreigners they would much rather do so,
and they really, thought it their duty. Then
they gave another reason for rejecting those
bids and that was the forms for bidders were
not filled out properly and they could not possi
bly let the contract until things were arranged
systematically. • -
It is the opinion of many people*that this
committee made way with those bids for the
purpose of giving some respected person the
contract, and with a view of showing to this
special party the bids and allowing him to come
under them for bis benefit and thereby obtain
Our reporter met several of tbe leading Y. M.
C. A., among them were two of tbe committee
en bids, and also the general secretary, Mr.
Heimer. They all express regret that such had
become the spinion of the people.
They assured the reporter that the building
would soon be put out again to the lowest bid
der, thereby allowing those who have already
made their bid to try again, and at the same
time give those who were not ready to bid be
fore a riiance.
They said that not the least partiality was

Tbe Dixie Debaling Club.
Last Monday night was the time appointed
for the club to meet again, but on account of
providential hindrances it was postponed. How
ever, due notice for the time of meeting will be
given later. Since this club last met some of
its members have forfeited their right to mem
bership by uniting themselves with the fairer
sex in the holy bonds of matrimony, while oth
ers have left our Gate City and taken up their
abode in distant lands.
The clubs’ membership is limited to twenty
five, and as these vacancies are unfilled, other
young men who are interested in such an or
ganization, and are eligible to membership are
invited to call and see Mr. W. T. Cowles at
S. P. Richard & Son’s book store, Mr. E. B.
Fletcher. No. 9 Whitehall street, Mr. L. B. Ar
nold, 32 Wall street. This club is composed of
younff lawyers, doctors, merchants and clerks,
and is made up of the best young men of the
city. The Capitol wishes them much success,
and truly hopes that they will get even more
than the number of members required.
Tbe Ylo Literary Society.
Last night tbe resideaceof Mr. William Bren
ner, 219 Marietta street, was a scene of life and
merriment. After a very interesting programme,
which consisted in essays, recitations, speeches
and music, the young people passed an hour or
two socially, which, to say the least, was en
joyed by all. This club is composed of some of
the most beautiful and accomplished young la
dies in the city, and there could be no one ac
complishment more necessary to insure success
than this. The Capitol reporter was glad to
be there, and will doubtless go again.
