BRUNSWICK. GA„ SUNDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 18, 1906
WITHIN THIRTY DAYS
Brunswick, Ga., Nov. y/, 1906.
To the People of Brunswick:
I announced in my letter of acceptance of the cand dacy for
mayor of the city of Brunswisk that 1 had for years been in
favor of the ownership by the city of the light and water
plant, whenever practicable. That the money must be raised be
fore it could be accomplished, either by taking over the present
plant or creating anew one.
* was sincere in that statement and now pledge myself that if
elected mayor, with four citizens as aldermen supporting me irt
the movement, I will, within sixty days from my inauguration,
secure the ownership and control by the city of Brunswick of the
GAS, ELECTRIC LIGHT AND WATER PLANTS OF THE MU
TUAL LIGHT AND WATER CO., at a valuation acceptable to
an overwhelming majority of the taxpayers and citizens of Bruns
wick, enabling the city and the people to secure a big reduction
of their own light and. water rates, and this I promise to do w th
out increasing taxation.
IN THE EVENT I FAIL TO CARRY OUfT THIS PLEDGE, Ij
SOLEMNLY PROMISE THE PEOPLE OF BRUNSWICK TO* RE
SIGN THE OFFICE OF MAYOR AT THE END OF SAID SIXTY'
I have no desire ivt this office unless I can be of service to
the people at this important period in Brunswick’s history, and
I pledge such resignation the day I fail to make good this pledge.

expect me to do in case 1 was

MORNING Ai MIC ME
Rumor Has It That toe New Sche
dule Will be Put On Wy the Road
On or Before January
According to a well founded ikru
inor in railroad circles AtniSta,
Birmingham and Atlantic , railroad
will, in the near future, inaugurate
a double daily schedule ipeiween
Brunswick and Montezuma. It ia
stated that the now ischednio will
bo inaugurated on or before January
This announcment. if true, will be
nf great interest to ithe people in
general along the line of the road
and especially to those in Bruns
wick. While Ihe present schedule
an the A.. B. aud A. is quite satls
lactory, a double daily a. bedule is
needed and nothing could help
Brunswick more at present.
Under the present schedule it ia
uecessary for visitors along the road
u> spend a. night in Bunswick when
they visit the city. In other words
it is impossible for the people to
leave their homes, come to Bruns
wick and return the same day. It
Is inconvenient for a business man
to leave his place of business from
noon one (lay until the following
day, but such is necessary at pres
ent. The through train on the A.,
B. and A. arrives in Brunswick now
at 1:50 and the visitor is given un
til (l o’cloi k the following morning,
getting to ids home before noon.
Under the new schedule it is pro
posed to operate one train into
Brunswick early in the morning and
the G her jlatei in tho afternoon,
trains will depart from this city
about 5 a. in. and 7:20 p. m. There
fore a visitor could arrive. In the
city at 7 o’clock in tho morning,
aiend tho entire day here and get
back home at 9 or 10 o’clock at
Officials of the road in this city
are not in position to confirm the
rumor, but it Is known that the
road lias been contemplating a dou
ble daily schedule for some time
aud the business men and other*
of Brunswick will be glad to learn
that it is to soon be inaugurated.
WHOLESALE STAMPS ARE
TO BE RESTRICTED
A clever bit of graft said to be
practiced by aamo liquor dealers wlji
ta cut out by the latest United
States intern il revenue circular, a
copy of which reached Rucker Frl
The circular orders that after Jan'
nary l, 1907, tollectos shall decline
to issue a wholesale dealer’s stamp
tor use on any package not filled on
the premises of a wholesale liquor
dealer or on any/unbroken package
bearing the marine, stamps or brand*
required by la#. Tho unnecessary
expense of Isijning too many whole
sale dealers’ stamps Is the reason
the circular assigns for the order.
It is generally reported, however,
that the wholesale dealers’ stamp is
often uig-d on packages containing
rectified liquors and for the special
purpose of concealing the fact they
are rectified goods. This Is regard
ed as unfair to tho purchaser and
will be stopped by the order becom
ing effective In 1907.
