The roads of Glynn county need
attention, and the quicker they get
it the better. Reports from all
parts of the county state that the
recent rain has played havoc and
some of the roads are almost unfit
for travel. >
In the 1449th district probably the
worst conditions prevail, while the
27th is also hard hit. The roads of
the latter district have had only two
weeks attention during the past two
years, and this caused the roads to
be in bad shape. But when the rain
of the past two weeks got in its work
it just put it out of business.
The News is informed that the shell
roads of the county are also sorely
in need of attention and unless they'

WHAT DENHAM SAYS.
A. C. L’s Damage by Recent Storm
Less Than Estimated
Supt. W. B. Denham, of the Atlantic
Coast Line returned to Savannah yes
terday after a week’s absence, during
a part of which time he was in Jack
sonville, where he inspected the yards
to see what damage had been done
by the recent storm and flood.
According to the Savannah News
he says that the Coast Line system
got out of the trouble very well, in
deed, inasmuch as the damago done in
the yards and on the road will not
amount to more than from SSOO to
S6OO, this, in spite of the fact that
it was- estimated in Jacksonville that
the loss was near $12,000. It is tiue
that the yards were well filled with
with water hyacinths. Supt. Denham
says, and that they had to be carried
out by the carload, but the expense of
moving them will not fall on the At
lantic Coast Line, as the terminals
are owned by a separate company and
this company will have to stand the

GILL CASE TAKEN UP IN SUPER
IOR COURT OVER PROTEST
OF THE CITY.
The case of Lewis Gjll, vs. the City
of Brunswick, was heard by the su
preme court yesterday upon the
briefs Kubtaijtted by Messrs. R. E.
Dart for Gill aipj F. E. Twitty for
the city. This is a decided victory
for Mr. Dart in view of the fact that
Mr. Twitty, attorney for the city had
filed with the supreme court a mo
tion to vacate the assignment and to
hear the case upon the ground that
it was a civil case and could not he
heard before the October term, 1903.
Mr. Dart took the position that it was
not a civil case, but a criminal one,
or a quasi criminal one, and one
that should be tried upon criinjnnl
rules, and the court held
it Oil its ' merits.’
This first victory for Mr. Dart in
the supreme court gives assurance
that the case will, upon final trial, he
reversed, and this is exactly what Mr.
Dart has contended all along; and
from the decision holding the ca o
to be criminal it looks as if he will
win out finally. In tho meantime
the case is watched with great inter
est by the public generally.

The regular stock fire companies
