Clerk Nelson desired to be heard and
stated that it would be impossible, prob

Alderman O’Connor sustained Clerk
Nelson’s statement and desired to be
placed on record as bitterly opposing
tiie Board of Health holding sessions
where the public or newspaper men
would be omitted.
This roused Alderman Penniman, and
lie desired to know why the Board of
Health wished to hold secret sessions.
Alderman O’Connor stated that they
did not wish the public to attend every
meeting and offer suggestions as to the
best way in which they should act and
that he knew the members would re
sign before they would meet in public
Alderman Penniman replied that they
could resign if they thought best as that
act was in their power, but he would
never consent for them to keep their
actions a secret. This was a center shot
and the question was called for. Upon

FIRE AT JESUP.
The Altamaha Hotel Destroyed—Loss
Estimated at SIO,OOO.
The Altamaha Hotel of Jesup, with
all its contents was destroyed yesterday
The fire was first discovered about 0
o’clock and was burning on the outside
of the building, one part of which had
been saturated with oil, evidently the
work of an incendiary.
The building was a large double story
one and contained many rooms occupied
by boarders, the telegraph and express
offices and the joint ticket office of the
Brunswick and Western and S. F. & W.
Everything in the building was a total
loss, nothing that was at all vuluable be
ing saved. The guests of the house bare
ly escaped with their lives.
The building was owned by the Plaut
System, and was valued at near $7,000.
The furniture and goods in it were worth
at least $3,000 making a probable loss of
SIO,OOO. It is safe to presume that it
was fully covered by insurance.

Among Mrs. Oton’s selections for the
evening is “Little Mischief” a costume
recital that she presented at the last Y.
M. C. A. entertainment, the rendition of
which brought forth rounds of applause.
This is an opportunity that the public
may not have again soon of hearing one

or perhaps the United States, and they
should not fail to take advantage of it.

to nature all her gestures and facial de

A Mistaken Idea Corrected.
The public scent to think that the
Board of Health have stopped all bag

This is a great mistake and tiie re
port should never have been started.
Mayor Colson received a telegram from
the mayor of Jacksonville, yesterday,
asking if a party of three from that city
would be allowed to pass through here
with their baggage, and immediately
wired back that nothing would be done
to prevent them from coming.
This surely 'ought to satisfy anyone.
Brunswick is not at all alarmed and it is
unfortunate that the report was started.
