U. D. C. ENTER PROTEST
Georgia Daughters Object to
Removal of Wirz Monument.
It is Claimed That Only a Few Were in
Attendance When Monument Was
Tendared to Richmond, Virginia.
Atlanta, Ga. —The subject of the
Wirz monument is again before the
public, brought about by the action
of a number of prominent Georgia
women, who have signed a petition
sent to the chapter presidents of the
United Daughters of the Confederacy
of Georgia, asking that a call be made
for a convention of daughters to re
oonsider the action of the recent state
convention, United Daughters of the
Confederacy, in Savannah, in tender
ing the monument to the city of Rich
The new turn of affairs in the mat
ter Of the monument comes as a sen
sation to the patriotic women of the
state, though there has been openly
expressed dissatisfaction on the part
of many as to the' recent official ac
tion taken upon the question where
the monument should finally he lo
The petitioners who ask that the ac
tion of the state convention be recon
sidered are: Mrs. Helen Plane, hon
orary president Georgia United
Daughters of the Confederacy; Mrs.
J. K. Ottley, chairman from Georgia
Shiloh monument; Mrs. R. E. Park,
Mrs. J. C. Olmstead, Atlanta; Mrs. A.
B. Hull, chairman committee on ar
rangements Wirz monument, Savan
nah; Mrs. James Jackson, Atlanta;
Mrs. Lee Trammell, state registrar,
Madison; Mrs. A. O. Harper, Elber
ton; Mrs, R. L. Nisbet, first vice pres
ident Georgia division, Marietta; Mrs.
P. H. Lovejoy, Hawkinsville; Mrs. P.
H. Godrey, auditor Georgia division,
Covington; Miss M. B. Sheibley, re
cording secretary, Rome; Miss Ida
Holt, Macon; Mrs. T. O. Chestney,
Macon; Mrs. W. D. Lamar, first vice
They state that at the recent ses
sion of the Georgia division, United
Daughters of the Confederacy, in its
closing hours, when the representa
tion was greatly depleted, a resolution
to offer to the city of Richmond the
monument to Captain Wirz, which all
the women of Georgia had helped to
build, was carried by a majority of
only two of the voting power present.
So much dissatisfaction is expressed
at this result throughout the state
and by interested delegates from the
various states at the general conven
tion in Atlanta, that they feel impell
ed to protest and ask that they be
joined In a call for reconsideration of
the question, which can only Undone
by a request from two-thirds of the
chapters in the state.
WATER VERY SCARCE.
Drought in South Georgia Causes
Moultrie, Ga. —It has been an ex
ceedingly dry fall in this section, and
many have suffered inconvenience for
some time, but recently the water
problem has been very expensive for
many, and the drought is every day
resulting in destructive fires over the
county. Not in years have there been
so many reports of fields and fencing
burning* trees burning down and for
ests being damaged by fire. Turpen
tine and lumbermen are heavy losers
from fire, and they are also troubled
considerably to get water to run their
stills and mills. Ginning plants in
some sections have had to shut down.
A few farmers are unable to get
enough water from their wells for
their stock, and hogs that are being
fattened have done poorly as a re
sult of the scarcity of water.
TO EXHIBIT APPLES.
Cornelia Grower Sends Exhibit to Spo
kane National Apple Show.
Cornelia, Ga. —One of the finest
shipments of apples ever sent out of
Georgia was forwarded to the Na
tional Apple Show at Spokane, Wash.,
by Colonel John P. Fort.
The shipment will be entered in the
contest for the SIOO prize offered for
the “best new apple.” The expense of
getting this fruit to Spokane and hav
ing it properly exhibited will amount
to nearly that sum, but Colonel Fort
states that he did not enter his ap
ples in the show purely in the hope
of securing the prize, but to ad\er
tise to the country what Georgia can
do in the way of apple raising.
If the apples safely reach their des
tination they will stand a good chance
of winning, which will do moie to
ward attracting attention to this sec
tion, where are grown “big red ap
ples,” than any other kind of adver
DEMAND FOR BETTER SERVICE.

THRODGHOUT THE STATE
About five hundred and fifty gallons
of moonshine whiskey was sold in
Atlanta, the government being the
seller, and the buyers being members
of a crowd of nearly two thousand
persons, attracted by the unusual
spectacle cf a liquor sale in a “dry”
community. The whiskey had been
seized at illegal stills in Georgia foot
hills. Bidders paid from $2.25 per
gallon, to $3.35, and on one lot, the
bidding reached $3.70. This bid, how
ever, was rejected when it was found
that the bidder’s thirst was bigger
than his pocketbook, and that instead
of desiring an entire keg, he wished
only to “pay at the rate of $3.70 per
gallon,” for enough to make a few
Honorable Lawton B. Evans, super
intendent of education in Richmond
county, has Just returned from a visit
to all the public schools in that coun
ty, and makes the statement that in
point of enrollment, interest and all
round progress, educational institu
tions under the jurisdiction of the
board are enjoying a more prosperous
season than ever before. At a num
ber of schools in the rural districts,
wagons are operated daily, transport
ing children to and from home, which
system has proved markedly benefi
cial since it was adopted about six
An interesting point of law will be
settled at the approaching term o£
Floyd city court, when John Brown,
arrested for larceny af'teer trust, is
tried at Rome. The charge against
Brown is made by G. M. Henderson,
a carpenter, who gave Brown a dollar
to get him a quart of whiskey. Brown
told Henderson to wait, then disap
peared and the carpenter waited for
several hours in the rain, but he did
not return. Henderson returned to
his home, disguised himself in other
clothing and loitered around the spot
where he had been approached by
Brown. The man approached and ask
ed if he would not like to have a nice
quart of whiskey for a dollar. Hender
son’s answer was a blow that felled
him and a call for the police.
Chairman S. G. cLendon of the rail
road commission has signed an order
authorizinng the Elberton Southern
Railway company to issue capital
stock in the sum of $200,000 and
bonds amounting to $250,000. The road
was formerly known as the Elberton
Air Line and was purchased receently
er’s sale. The road will be improved
and put in a first class condition.
A charter has been granted to the
American Banking and Trust com

Holder, J. W. Curry and R> W.
Graves, all of Rome, Ga. The incor
porators announce that over $26,000,
the amount prescribed by law, has al
ready been paid in.
When President-elect William H.
Taft made his notable address in New
York city at the banquet of the North
Carolina society, the walls all about
him were festooned with cotton stalks
grown within a few miles of Atlanta.
The banquet was a typically southern
affair, and Mr. Taft spoke principally
on conditions in the~south. It was ap
propriate therefore that cotton should
be the principal decoration. The rich
ly boiled stalks were shipped from
Atlanta at the request of the Hotel
Astor management. They were those
used at the Cobb county exhibit at the
state fair last fall. The shipment
weighed two hundred pounds.
