WHAT GEN. LEE SAYS
OF CUBA CONVENTION
He Thinks It a Very Small
CHANGE IN THE NATIONAL.
Teller Smith to Resign, Capt. Symons
to Succeed Him.
Mr. George Smith, for a number of
years teller of the National bank of
Biunswick, lias tendered bis resigna
tion, to take place on December let.
Mr. Smith will leave here at that
time for Tampa, where he has accepted
a similar position with the First Na
tional bank of that city, one of the
best known banking com pi*lies In the
state of Florida.
While it Is not yet given out officials
ly, the Times-Call understands from
k ood authority that Mr. Smith’s place
here will be filled by Capt. W. F. Sy.
mons, the present representative of
Glynn county In the legislature.^
Mr. Symons Is known by every citi
zen of Brunswick and is well suited
for the pjsce.
Mr, Smith, since his residence in
this city, has made himself yery popu
lar In both business and social circles,
and hfs frte.Dds regret t 1 see him leave,
but will wish him much success in his
new field. \
NEW SCHOOL TAX.
Counties May Impoe,Tax ou Its In
habitants for Scbool'Purpose.
It has been suggested that th<t coun
ties of Georgia impose a tax
zena for school purposes, and as a Je
suit of this suggestion it is likely that*
a b 11 will be introduced in the bouse
in a few days requiring the counties
to tax tbe oitizens of tbe county for
ooe fourth as much as tbe state rate of
taxation in order to defray tbe schoo
expenses-of the oounty.
By this method it is believed the
tobool teachers of the state will get
their money regularly instead of every
lew months as has been tbe case bere
stands a majority
of the nnf.n. . ~ii.. ■ ol)
