TO SELL Resolution Included a Letter from President of the Company, An nouncing That City Could V Purchase the Piant. .✓Those people who rd The News, and we are in the statement that they ars numerous, must have felt some wonderment at the pe culiar fate that met Alderman C-ule’s resolution at like called meeting ci city council Tuesday night. It is rather an unufeual thing for the may or to call some mem ter of ccdfneii to his seat in order to paru/i'paY m the discussion cf any rtiai/u- be fore council. It is a strikj/g one when the rna yor does this iJ> a ci. clerk is in t ie act o‘; readi/g a res olution intro lured properly and cor "Wfclv by a nember of tbje council. ■ \Ga>c -esolutiou winch was s: f /by tie chief executive and / died in the se/ret. recesses 'nclavt s of the Executive ses . (fold :mve mi:i ifi much to the _ ■ Aide Of th s city, tJ the taxpayers, to the property lioliers and to al classes and .conditions of Bruns wick’s citizepry. / As we bE|ve stated many, many times and /as we shall rvob ably state Jcain/ there Is a deep game of polil’cs fjeiag played la the present city ”, council; politics so en grossing that e/ery interest cf the people is for|;oen !;• this mad an,, reprehensible- aamo of making good with the people. The News /up to this time has never brought the Mutual Light anu Water Company into this campaign. It has no place in it, except in the imagination of the pol'Ucions w‘-.< dominate the affairs of the city coun cil. The Gale resolution was sim ply one providing for a complete adjustment of the differences long pending between ithe mayor and council and the Mutual Light and Water Company. It incorporated .statement from the president of the Mutual Light and Water Company to the effect that the company was perfectly willing to sell its plant to the city and would do so in prefer ence to all other bidders and would aid the city la the matter of financ ing the proposition Now, Mr. mayor and council, why didn’t you accept the proposition Why did you hedge on it? Why di you silence a resolution, introduced oy a member of ycur own body who exercised his free right as. a member of your own organization 7 Why was this resolution consigned to oblivion in the private apart ments of your city hall and in a secret session? Why was it neces sary to cut out free speech anri why did you not take the people o Brunswick, whose servants you are Into your confidence and give them the benefit o£ that Gale resolution? We will tell you why. and the people of Brunswick, unless we arc mislead, are going to tell you nex‘ Tuesday. It is because politics dom inates your body, and it is becaus the city council of Brunswick is anx lous to keep the Mutual Light and Water Company in its present atti tude so as to make it and force it to be an issue in this campaign. It has *een stated in the public prints, it has been hinted and in eiuated by "tricks that are vain, ways that are dark." that the preseat candidate for mayor and his jacket are ft* candidate* of the Mutual Light and Water Company, and that their election would mean anew contract with the company at its own figures. How does this action of the light and water com pany in offering to sell its plant NOW comport with the dirty meth ods and false insinuations that have been made in this campaign. The proposition is too simple for further consideration and here and now we charge that the only reason that the light and water company was not practically taken over by the city of Brunswick Tuesday night was because narrow minded politi cians without respect to the welfare of the people and the city wanted to force it to be injected into this present campaign to mislead and hoodwink innocent people into the belief that the People’s ticket and the light and water company had joined hands in this specific case. J.u order that people might thor oughly understand this proposition it ought to -be again stated that the Mutual Light and Water Company were not only .willing to sell the plant at once on figures submitted twelve months ago, BUT WAS ~~ READY AND WILLING TO FINANCE .THE SCHEME, OR IN OTHER WORDS WERE READY TO HELP THE CITY RAISE THE MONEY TO BUY IT. Can’t you see the outlines cf an other very dark negro in that same little old woodpile? SIGNS DEBUSES IS HAVE J()INT -y HE REFUSES TO DIViDE TIME WITH COL. C. P. GOODYEAR A7 THE MEETING TONIGHT—SAYS THERE ARE NO ISSUES. W. F. Symons has declined the challenge cf Col. C. P. Goodyear for a joint debate tonight, having ad dressd him a letter yesterday, in which he stated that there were no issues involved in the campaign on which they differed, and therefore a joint debate could have no good re sult. Mr. Symons, for the first time during the campaign, announced in the letter that he favored municipal ownership ot pus'cltc utilities. Th is the nrst time that the candidate has ever expressed himself on any of the Issues of the campaign. His refusal to meet Col. Good year in a joint discussion will be a disappointment to many of the voters of the city, who had hoped that they would have an opportunity to hear the issues jointly discussed. A number of important matters are involved in the campaign and the joint discussion on them would have given the average voter a good idea of what the two candidates stand for. RIG REIS! ON THEJLECTiON OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS WERE PUT UP LAST NIGHT ON MAYOR’S RACE. Betting on the approaching muni cipal (primary took a lively turn last night, and over SI,OOO were placed on the result of the mayor's contest One bet of SSOO even was made, two well known business men put ting up the cash. Two other bets of SIOO each were also made during the night, •while any number o small bets were placed. Two bets o' SSO to $35 on Goodyear were made yesterday afternoon. The campaign is rapidly drawing to a close and both sides are confi dent and are backing their judg ment with their money. It is under stood that $509 m oi9 win be put up today.

A meeting in Washington between both freight and pai3senger repre sentatives of all the sections of the country and the members of the interstate commerce commission Is now being hold, and the result of this meeting means much to the publlic, and especially to shipped* Chairman Joseph Richardson, of the Southeastern Passenger Association, is representing the pasenger inter ests of this section, while Freight Traffic Manager O. L. Green, of the Southern railway, is representing the freight interests. It is the purpose of thi3 meeting to come to some agreement in re gard to the filing of tariffs with the commission and the adaption of some uniform method in this con nection. At present, there i3 a con =id era Mo difference in tne methods practiced between t.he different ■freight land passenger associations of the country. That is. the South eastern Passenger Association prac tices the filing of tariffs in a man ner v.’hich differs from that of the central or the western associations, it is the same way so far as the freight associations are concerned During the present meeting the railroad officiate exjpect to get to gether and agree upon some uni form method, and /then take this up with the interstate commission, and, if it i,s agreeable-to them, adopt it or with such changes as the com mission may direct or insist upon. What means much to the shippers is the fact that the commission hat directed these officials in their con sideration of the present tariff to adopt some simple system by means of which the ordinary business mat can take a freight tariff and by careful study and examination un derstand the meaning of the tariff the rates, restrictions and all of the other requirements and conditions. It is the opinion of the commis sion— and the general c-übllc as wel' that in the consideration of the pres ent rate tariff, an expert and ex perienced railroad man is needed. What the commission has demanded is some uniform system of present ing the fact3 and figures In such a way that the average shipping clerk, or at least the, average business man, may take up the tariff. study it and then be a,tie to both under stand its meaning and comply with its contents. The. commission has stated that this must be, and the railroad men are now doing all in their power, according to reports, to got up such & simple form. Shippers also complain that under the present complicated form of tar iffs. mistakes are being constantly made, but as it requires an expert to both trace the mistake to its source through a wilderness of figures and restrictions, each as the average business man has not the time to study out and understand, many of the claims are settled rather than go to the expense of securing expert advice cn the matter. Two or three Atlanta business men were talking of this phase of the question yester day, and stated that with the adop tion of some simple and uniform tar iff, many, if not all, of tfyjse mis takes would be obviated. For this and other reasons, the present conference between officials i and members of the commission in | Washington is attended with great 1 importance to the general public, and especially the shippers and bust IM ft CQUiNTES'^nHitED DIVORCEVALSf GIVEN CUSTODY . ; *~J iILDgEN TIRED OF SCHOOL LIFE. 1 Pretty Ycuna Girl Ended Her Life at Concord, Ga.
