VOLUME 6, NUMBER 42. ONLY PASSENGERS ON STEAMER BRUNSWICK FROM NEW YORK HERE JAKE ON FREIGHT FOR HAVANA AT THIS PORT First Trip of the Brunswick Will Be Made Decem ber 1 81-WEEKLY TRIPS AT FIRST Steamer For Havana Will Not Take on Freight For Brunswick In New York—Full Ssheriule is Announced. The lull schedule of the steamer Brunswick, which Is to go on the New York-Brunswick-Havana run on December Ist, has been announced. The Atlanta Constitution of yester day contained a story given out by the Atlanta, Birmingham and At lantic railroad which will be o£ great 'merest in Brunswick. It is as fol lows: It was officially announced Thurs day by officers of the Atlanta, Bir mingham and Atlantic that beginning the first Saturday in December regu lar passenger service would be es tablished by the •Brunswick Steam ship Company between New York, Brunswick and Havana. While It was reported in the Con stitution a few days ago that such service would be established, the announcement that it would be inau gurated in less than a month came as a great surprise to the Atlanta railroad world and the announce ment was considered to be one of the most Important to Atlanta and the southeastern territory in a long time. The announcement is only another proof of the strenuous policy of President H. M. Atkinson, and the fact that he is paving the way for immediate results. The inauguration of tins new pas senger service means anew route between Atlanta and this territory Ha Brunswick and New York city, and most of all, it means anew dJ rect service to Havana and one tha* will he much shorter for tourists, prospectors and others who hurry to itac Island 'each winter living In the west, the middle west, the Ohio val ley, and the fact that these passen gers will pass through Atlanta, thus making It the Gate City for Cuba as well as the north and south of this country. Only a few weeks ago President Atkinson, while in New York, pur chased one of the very latest and ■heat type* of passenger steamships. Since the making of this purchase, a large army of workmen have been employed In making perfect every detail looking toward the very best facilities for the comfort and safety of passengers. Included in the work of finishing is the fact that letters spelling "Brunswick’' have been painted on dhe bow )of this new steamship, which is to inaugurate the liret passenger service between a Oeorgia port and Cuba. leaving December 1, which is the first Saturday of the month, the Brunswick will said for Cuba, stop ping at Brunswick. It was stated that future events might necessitate the pontopnlng of the first sailing to Saturday, December 8, but th< maiden trip would certainly not be later than this date, and every ar rangement Is being made to sail the first. Between New York and Brunswick the steamship will carry only passengers, the freight between these two ports being left to the fleet of freight steamships, the first or which, the Satllla, sails from New #,rk for Brunswick tomorrow. While only passengers will <be car ried between New York and Bruns wick by the Brunswick, between Brunswick and Cuba and Havana, both freifW and -passengers will be tfMtfprtH Sc ratfflr I>m tm work under Air# * u,a * l The Brunswick News. dent Atkinson progressed that the following schedule is announced: At present, and until the new steamships are added, as the de mand warrants, the Brunswick will leave New York every other Satur day. Leaving Saturday, this boar will arrive in Brunswick the follow ing Tuesday morning. After unload" ing passengers to Brunswick, At lanta and points In the southeast, passengers from this section for Cuba will be taken on board togethe' with freight for the island metrop olis. and the departure for Havana wilt be made Tuesday evening, ar riving at its destination Thursday. From Thursday until Saturday the Brunswick will lie in Havana, un loading and loading cargoes for Brunswick and New York. Leaving Havana Saturday, the boat will ar rive in Brunswick on its northern trip Monday morning, and Monday evening leave Brunswick Tor New York, arriving at its destination Wednesday night, or early Thursday morning. This schedule will permit of a lay-over in New York until Sat-i urday, when she will again start south. SPECIAL TRAIN TO FITZGERALD BIG AUCTION SALE OF LOTS WILL OCCUR IN THAT CITY ON THURSDAY.

GILT CAMPAIGN TO GOME TO CLOSE TRIS WEEK hlmary Will Be Held One Week from Tuesday BOTH SIDES ARE COMIT But the Supporters of the Adminis tration Candidate For Mayor are Asking for Odds of Two to One. One week from Tuesday and the municipal primary, for the nomina tion of a mayor and four aldermen, will be held, therefore it is expected that tile campaign will come to a whirlwind finish this week. Both factions will be busy during the re maining days and by Saturday it is expected tnat the campaign will be practically over Both sides, of course, are already claiming victory, but neither seem3 to be willing to admit by what ma jority they will win. In betting cir cles the odds favor Col. C. P. Good year for mayor. In fact, very few bets have so far been placed. There seems to 'be plenty of Goodyear mon ey in evidence, but the Symons supporters are asking for the unusual odds of two to one. With this situ ation very little money Jtryi been placed, although a number of bets at those odds have been made. Offers of five to four on Goodyear are freeD made, but there are no takers, and unless the Goodyear men agree to give odds of two to one no betting will be done. The aldermanic race, of course, !:■; not attracting very much attention. The Symons people admit that they do not expect to see their entire ticket elected, but the supporters of Col. Goodyear are more sanguine, and are claiming the election of their entire ticket by a safe majority. The campaign will no doubt go to fever heat during the present week. Both sides will do everything 'possi ble; the administration forces, like they have done in the past, will re sort to many unfair methods in their efforts, but it certainly looks like the people of Brunswick, for once at least, have decided to be masters Oi the situation, and they will vote for the ticket named (by the People’s mass meeting. The administration politicians by their dirty methods, have practically admitted defeat ana are now doing everything possible to turn the fide of public sentimei' —but their efforts will fail.

ELOQUENT ADDRESS BY WRESSMAN BRANTLEY Said it was a Memorable Event in Brunswick's Bislcry LITTLE GIBES LOOKED PRETTY More Than Fiftv of Them Were In the National Colors and Made A Fine Appearance as They Marched Around Tres< The planting of a liberty tree In 3runswick yesterday afternoon was a notable event: one that will go Jown In Brunswick's history as well as that of the nation. The announce mont some time ago that a liberty tree would be planted In this city attracted widespread attention In all sections cf the country, and Mrs. E. F. Conoy, regent of the local chapter of the Daughters of tho Revolution, under whoso auspices the tree, was planted, has received nu merous letters from many states and territories of the union, inquir ing about the event. A large number of citizens were present yesterday afternoon to wit ness the ceremonies incident to the tree planting. The exercises wore opened shortly after 3 oLlock, when the fifty or more little girls, repre senting the different states, preced ed by the Brunswick Riflemen, marched to the square north of the city hall. They were grouped around the tree and a photograph taken, which will be published in a number of papers. A temporary stand had been erect ed on Mansfield street for the speak ing and other exerciseß. Prof. N. H. Ballard announced the purpose of tho gathering. Prayer was offered by Rev, Sammons, of the First Baptist church, after which Congressman Brantley was introduced as the ora tor of the occasion. Tho address .delivered by Mr. Brantley was an eloquent one. He opened by saying that the 'Planting of the liberty troc was a memora ble event and would go down in the history of this city. He said Its planting would stimulate love of lib erty; that here in Georgia tho tree wax planted In the caiyiie of liberty to teach, patriotism in tne hearts not only of those who were taking part in tho planting of the tree, but to the entire nation. He said the tree was local, but in tho manner of its planting here wo had made it nation al aa well. “So is liberty,” he said, both free and national. If it lives it will be because it is fed and nour ished by each state and territory of the nation. So about überty. It can't live and be local, it must b* national." For a half hour or more Mr. Brant ley dwelt upon the subject of Ucerty la a most eloquent manner, and his speech was one tnat Is sure to crons' entuusiasm amona the American peo l-le. It should have been heard by every man. woman and child In Brunswick; in the country, if such had been possible. Following tho excellent addreaa of Mr. Brantley the formal planting of the tree o curved. Each state was represented by a pretty little girl, who wore the national colors and carried soil from the respective states that they represented. Each of the little girls deposited the soil at the root of the tree, which stands in the middle of the pretty square. The exercises were enjoyed by tne large crowd present and the Daugh ters of the American Revolution, es pecially Mrs. Coney, the regent, de serves grea't credit for the success of the undertaking. It will serve to Drina Brunswick Into prominence na tlonally. Many societies are interested in the planting ot the tree aod have already written here for information about it, while many of the popular magazines and such publication# buvf asked for pictures of the tr##, •te
