THE "NASHVILLE AMERICAN, SATURDAY, JANUARY 10; 1903 QUESTION UP AGAIN THAT OF A- NEW DEPOT IN v. . . . ATLANTA. 6 President Thomas Goea There -r Under Discussion for Years Fault of Legislature Big Strike on Roads West of Mississippi is Possible. President J. W. " Thomas, of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St Louis Railway, was in Atlanta Friday to appear before the Georgia Railroad Commission In response to an order Issued by the commission to' testify as to why the present union depot In that city Is in such a condition as it Is, and why it Is not .Jtept in better repair. The commission also ' cited officials of other roads that use. the depot to appear for the : same reason. It seems to be the determination of the, commission to force the railroads to do all that they can to give Atlanta a first-class depot. The depot In question is the property of the State' of Georgia, but it is leased to the railroads. The Nashville, Chattanooga & St, Louts Kail way also leases from the State the Western & Atlantic Bailroad and gets along with It a lease on three-tenths of the depot. The other five roads lease the other seven-tenths. The property is under the management of a special Board of Control composed of. officials of the Interested railroads, and each of them contributes its quota toward operating and keeping the property In repair. A great deal of money has been expended on the property within the last two years in repairing it, but the nail-road Commission seems to think that more should be done. Atlanta' Is soon to have a $600,000 depot. "Work is to commence within the next, month. The commission seems determined to have the old depot put In excellent shape notwithstanding this. The Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway will be one. of not more than two roads to continue to use the old station after the new one Is finished. It will probably claim that the old depot is good enough for Its use, and ought to easily establish that claim when it is shown how much money has been expended in repairing the buildings during the last two years. The depot question has been a burning Issue in Atlanta for years. The railroads made a proposition to the State to build a new station on the site of the old one but the Legislature would not accept the offer. The railroads withdrew it and the Legislature then saw that It was liberal and very acceptable offer and expressed its willingness to accept. Some of the' roads had in the meantime decided to not ngaln make the same offer and that fell through. The State then made a proposition but all of the interested roads would not accept this. The Southern Railway then took the matter in its own hands and the result of this last movement is the $600,000 depot mentioned which Is to be erected on another site. Most of the other roads will join the Southern Railway in building and using the new depot. Trainmen's Demands. It now seems probable that the railroads west of the Mississippi River are to have trouble with their trainmen. It will be remembered that the men made demands for an advnnce of 20 per cent, in wages. It has now become public for the first time that the men also demanded the adoption of "an absolute rule, guaranteeing double pay for handling freight trains ;of more than thirty cars each or trains hauled by more than one engine.' The railway managers all speak of this demand as preposterous, and the Indications are that they will not agree to it. It is thought that this feature may finally result In the striking of more than 100,000 engineers, conductors, brakemen and other trainmen on the roads west of the Mississippi. It Is believed that moHt of the roads would finally agree to the advance of 20 per cent, in wages, although some of them are holding out now. The interested roads are to hold a meeting in Chicago Immediately, and will probably determine what to do. The trainmen have given until Jan. 15 for an answer, and will probably take some further action after the answers of the railroads are received at that time. Engineers' Demands. It has been stated that the engineers and other trainmen on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad have .made no demands of any kind of the railroad company. The recent meeting in Louisville, concerning which it .was published that It probably portended a strike, wus the regular annual meeting of the Executive Committee. The only result of the meeting that has a bearing on the question of wages was the arranging of a conference with General Manager Evans to take place on Jan. 12. W..D, Thomas, one of the Executive Committee, says that no one knows vhat the result of the Louisville meeting on Jan. 12 will be, that one thing may be asked for or another thing may be asked for or that nothing at all may be asked. He very positively expressed the opinion that there would be no rupture. The things that the engineers have considered demanding are an increase in wages and the abolishing of what are known as "short dogs." It Is well known that freight crews, Including the engineers, take their regular turn in order in making a run, this being known as "first in, first out." When a special Is run only a short distance out It Is assigned to the man next In order, and as he 1b paid on a mileage basis, he of course gets a smaller amount than he would on a full run. The men want a "short dog" to count a full day. Freight Conference. The out-of-town freight traffic representatives of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, who have been holding their annual conference here, have adjourned until the llrat of next year after a profitable meeting of two days' duration. The purpose of the conference, as has been stated, Is to give the men an opportunity to get better acquainted with each other, so that they will work more harmoniously, and to discuss freight matters in general, so that all can be benefited from the experiences of each man. The visitors were taken to West Nushvllle on a special train In the afternoon and stopped at the West Nashville shops of the company and xnade a tour. of Inspection. They broke up after returning to the city, and most or them left on the night trains for the various cities where they have headquarters. Through Sleeper. The Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway has arranged to extend Its Chlcago-NashvlIIe sleeping car service through to Jacksonville, Fla., on the Dixie Flyer. This Is the car that at present leaves Chicago over the Illinois Central and stops at Nashville. It Is in addition to the Chicago-Florida service on what Is known as the "Millionaires' Train," run In conjunction with the Louisville & Nashville and other roads. The new service will begin Monday, Soliciting Agent. L. E. Sawrie has been appointed Soliciting Freight Agent of the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad in this city to succeed Clarence L.

Demanding More Money. DENVER, Col., Jan. 9. The demands of the members of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen employed on the Colorado & Southern Railroad, for an increase In wage3 will be presented to General Superintendent Charles Dyer at a meeting which Mr. Dyer has promised for next Monday. Representatives of the order who have been in conference in Denver during the last few days have agreed upon the increase which they will ask. It amounts to 20 per cent of the present scale in some instances. Requests will also be made of General Superintendent F. F; Egan-and General Manager Charles Schlacks, of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, for a conference at which a request for more pay. will be made. Admiration Expressed. LONDON, Jan. . 9. Phillip Burtt, General Traffic Manager of the Northeastern Railroad, speaking at the railway institution of York yesterday relative to his recent Investigation of American railroad methods, expressed general admiration of them and said he was of the oDinlon that British railroad men could learn much from America. At the same time, he added, the nest American minds would find much to admire and learn in English railroad management. Mr. Burt said that the Intense keenness and enthusiasm of all Americans in their everyday work had; left a lasting impression on him. He thought that while America had the record for speed, the English average express runs would be found higher than the American. Mr. Burtt cordially admired American . adaptability m tn.j use of power. The Gould Interests. NEW YORK. Jan. 9. It was learned here to-day that an agent of the. Gould railway interests has been engaged the last two months in buying options for a rfght of way for the extension of the Western Maryland Railroad from this city to the Susquehanna River. It Is said here that it is the intention of -the Gould Interests to build a line to New York from the York, Pa., terminus of the Western Maryland Railroad. MINERAL DISCOVERY Leeville Man Thinks He Has Struck a Bonanza. Whqt appears to be a rich mineral find has been made by C. N. Etherly, a Leevllle man. The discovery is In the nature of what appears to be a rich lead ore mine, and is located on the Harts-vllle road, fourteen miles from Lebanon. The deposits are In a hill on the Cumberland River, and from a preliminary Investigation there appears to be an unlimited amount of the ore. The ore is In a fissure of c.eruslte, which Is 8 inches thick at the surface and which is valuable In the manufacture of paint. Prof. J. C. Wharton, of this city, has nnalyzed the lead ore, and pronounced It 87 per cent, pure metal. Mr. Etherly has associated with him some Nashville men, whose Intention It Is to form a corporation and begin the development of the property, which, according to their opinion, is a bonanza. It Is said that options have been secured on the land, and that those Interested are assured of the title. The thickness of the ore and ceruslte Is said to increase as it goes down beneath the surface. COLORiEDJMVI. C. A. New Officers Installed Mass Meeting To -Morrow.

MEETS HERE TO-DAY. - Charged With Duty, of Adopting a Com mon Hymn Book First Fruit . of Long and Interesting Series of Communications and Conferences. To-day there will meet In this city the joint HymnoJ Commission of the Methodist Episcopal Church,. South, and the Methodist Episcopal Church, which will be an important event In the history of American Episcopal Methodism. The committee is ..charged with the adoption of a common hymn book for the two churches. It is practically the first fruit of a long and Interesting series of communications-and parliamentary conferences between the two churches. . ' - The personnel of. the Joint commission is composed of some of the most prominent men of both churches and Is as follows: For the Methodist Episcopal Church, South Bishop B. E. Hbss, Chairman; Rev. H. M." Du Bosc, D. D., Secretary; Rev. George B. "VVInton, D. D., Rev. W. F. Tlllett, D. D., Rev. Paul Whitehead, D. D.. Rev. J. M. Moore. Ph. D.. Rev. F. S. Parker, President H. N. Snyder, I'n. JD., Prof, if'. i: iteriin, Jr-n. u rroi. Edwin Mims, Ph. D. For the Methodist Episcopal Church Bishop D. A. Goodsell, Chairman; Samuel F. Upham, D. D., Charles M. Stuart, D. D., Secretary; Camden F. Cobern, D. D., R. J. Cooke, D. D., W. A. Quayle, D. D., Matthew Simpson, Esq., Charles W. Smith, D. D., Prof. Caleb T. Winchester, H. C. Jackson, D. D., and S. C. Miller, D. D. The dlvlBlon of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, will meet at- the Publishing House this morning at 10 o'clock and the Joint commission will meet at the Maxwell at 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon. The visiting members will be entertained at the Maxwell and on Sunday will occupy the pulpits o the local churches. From the adjournment of the Cape May Commission in 1876, which wus instituted to settle certain property rights and' claims which mutually affected the two churches, little was attempted in the way ot rapprochment, other than 'mere formal correspond-) ence and fraternal visitations between the two General Conferences, until the second Ecumenical Conference, in Washington, in 1831. That body hailed with devout thankfulness the desire of the Methodist Churches for a closer union, , and ended by recommending concerted action upon all possible points of agreement and unity. The General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Churches,. South, which met at Memphis in 1894, was the first body to act on the suggestion of the Ecumenical Conference, appointing a Federation Committee of fifteen. The General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which met in Chicago in 1890, appointed a similar commission, and the Joint commissions met in Wnshlngton In 1898. A most fraternal spirit pervaded the meeting, a-.-.d several distinct matters of common action were' settled upon. One of these matters was a common, hymn book. The commissions which are. to meet In Nashville to-day are to determine this question, and thus are the two great Methodlsms drawing into bonds of closer unity. NEWMEMPHIS FIRMS Charters Granted to TWo try. Secretary, of State. Chnrters were granted by Secretary of State John W. Morton Friday to two corporations of Shelby County.

CHARGE IS FORGERY Young Han From Lewisburg is Arrested Here. Sergt. Saddler and Officers Dickens and Waddell arrested Hs M. Emerson early Friday morning in Mamie Harrington's house of ill-fame, on North High street, on information received from Columbia. He is wanted In that city, it is said, on a charge of forgery. It seems that Emerson was employed by E. ti. Sugg and had sold stock for $320, the check .being made in favor of Mr. Sugg. Emerson, it is alleged, Indorsed Mr. Sugg's , name and cashed It. He came to this city and, when arrested, was spending money freely. When searched at police headquarters he, had $257.88. He was taken back to Columbia by an officer of that city. LEWISBURG, Tonn, Jan. 9. (Special.) H. M. Emerson, of this plnce, who was arrested In Nashville this morning on the charge of forging the name of E. L. Sugg In indorsing a check Is now In jail in Columbia, and will probably have to be tried there, as the alleged crime was committed In that city. Emerson was in the employment of Mr. Sugg, who Is the proprietor of a livery stable here. Mr. Sugg-sold three or four horses to some parties In Columbia and sent Emerson through the country with the horses, with Instructions to secure a check for $320 from the parties and return home on the train arriving here at IV o'clock yesterday morning. Emerson failed to return, and Mr. Sugg waited until after the night train came In. Emerson still failed to put In an appearance and Mr. Sugg telephoned to Columbia. He ascertained that Emerson had gone to Nashville on the first train. An investigation followed and a warrant was sworn out for the arrest of Emerson. He Is of d respectable family, being the only son of J. P. Emerson. He was a rural route carrier until recently, when he lost that position. Poultry ana Pet Stock Show. HUNTSVILLE, Ala1.,' Jan. 9. (Special.) Large .crowds have been attending the annual exhibit of the North Alabama Poultry and. Pot Stock Association. Judge 'F. 'J. Marshall announced the awards last night, and a large majority of the premiums were clven Huntsville ' poultry. Hbwevnir lino fowls from tho neighboring towns secured a fair snare or prizes. GOOD COLLECTIONS TESTIFY' ' TO STRONG FINANCIAL ' POSITION OF INDUSTRIES. .' Distribution of Merchandise is Heavy and Many Manufacturers Are Pressed for Prompt Delivery Fuel Situation the Disturbing Element. NEW YORK, Jan.,,0. R. G.-Dun & Coh. "Weekly Review of Trade. to-morrow will say: Collections were notably prompt at all leading centers, bearing testimony to' the strong financial position of the Nation's industries at the opening of tho new year. Distribution of .merchandise is heavy and many manufacturers-are pressed for prompt, delivery. Orders for spring goods come freely and In some linos there is more than a sample business in fall weights. 1 Tardy deliveries in the past lead purchasers to anticipate requirements, more than here tofore and orders are being placed far in advance of actual needs. The fuel situation 1b still the one seriously disturbing element, rendering abnormally high the cost of manufacturing and restricting the purchasing power of almost the entire population. Fortunate, ly this comes at a time of exceptional prosperity or there would be a general contraction of consumption in other lines. There is little interruption to work because of . labor disputes. But many operations are interrupted by the delay in transit of needed materials. Railway freight rates were advanced, and one result will be a loss of exporta tlon from Eastern cities, the traffic being deilected to New Orleans. In the iron and steel industry the moBt significant event of the week was the discussion regarding the profit-sharing proposal by the leading producer. Inadequate supplies of coke are still restricting operations. Contracts for the new. year were made at 54 a ton, but prompt deliveries often commanded $6 or 57, and at Chicago some sales were reported at $10. Pig iron continues scarce; prices generally advancing during the past week, and the expected advance of $1 a ton was made In wire products. Much new business has come forward, especially In bars and sheets, which had been comparatively quiet, 'while there Is a vigorous demand for structural material to be used in bridge work and ' car shops. Another year, of unprecedented activity in this industry Is confidently anticipated. Partially because of the published statistics of supplies, but more on account of London speculation, there was a sharp advance in prices of tin and copper, followed by some reaction due to realizing sales. New England producers of foot-wear are busy on spring orders and a few deliveries already have been made, although shipments are light in these lines as yet. Exceptional activity in rubber goods has reduced supplies to an unusually low point: Some varieties- of leather have advanced slightly and tanners of hemlock sole continue heavy. No new features have appeared in the domestic demand for dry goods. The best event as to cottons has been the con tinued buying for export, which has exceeded expectations very largely. The print cloth market has ruled firm, with business restricted, by the .reserve of sellers, who show no, disposition to make concessions. As to woolen goods, the demand for overcoatings for next fall has not come up tQjjpxpectatlons, which may be attributed jn part to the fact that the season opened unusually early. Prlcesiare.fully maintained at. the. open ing level or the season. Failures for therWeek numbered 350 In the United. States, as against 373 last year, and 24 in Canada, compared with 27 a year ago. - Tried to Bribe Witness. HTJNTSVILLE. Ala.. Jan. 9. (Sne- cial.) Earn Burruss, of Scottsboro, was arraigned before Commissioner Conway yesterday on a cnarge or retailing whls ky Burruss was unable to make bond and was committed to jail.

Any cough accompanied by expectoration which lasts over three or four days, requires attention and treatment: this does not mean a visit to the hos pital, nor to your physician nor whole sale drugging with patent medicines; but it means that some simple, harmless effective antiseptic remedy like Stuart's Catarrh Tablets should be used to ward off any possible termination in Pneumonia, Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis or Consumntlon. All of these formidable diseases start from a common cold, neglected or nl lowed to run its course, and it is only the exercise of common every day caution to euro a cold as quickly as possible, not so much for what it Is at the moment, but . what it may become if neglected. Perhaps no remedy Is so safe, rena me ana convenient to stop a coia or obstinate cough as Stuart's Catarrh Tablets. ' The extract of blood root contained in them combined with the red cum of the Eucalyptus tree, seem to put the mucous membrane of the nose, mouth and throat in a condition to throw off tne germs or catarrn, bronchitis and consumption, and as they are taken internally they seem to equalize the circulation and nlace the bodv in thnt nnn dltlon of health which .resists and throws off the germs of disease.' A person in perfect health rarely catches cold, and If he does, throws it on m a day or two, put, where the cold hrintrs on. stonnlncr un thn nnatriu Irritating the throat or there is persistent annoying cough, it is evident that the system for some reason is unable to throw off the disease germs which cause the trouble; a little assistance Is necessary, and this Is best given by the use of some harmless germ destroying antiseptic like Stuart's Catarrh Tnoieta, wnicn are aiso palatable and enuallv so for children nnd nrlnitn. Druggists sell these tablets at 50 cents full sized package, higher in price than troches and cheap , cough syrups, but Stuart's Catarrh Tablets contain nntl-sentlc nronertles which actnnliv itw. colds, catarrh and throat and lung trouuies, wnue u t nucorious ract that nnntrh dronS and couch nvning ni-n largely composed of opium, cocaine and similar drugs, that have no curative power.

PAYS TO INVESTIGATE PROMINENT BUSINESS MAN BRINGS THREE YOUNG MEN. TO NASHVILLE TQ ENROLL IN A BUSINESS COLLEGE. THE RESULT OF THE INVESTIGATION Prof. Draugbon Pays His Teachers and Office Force $25,20240 Per Year His College Strongly Indorsed by Thirty-Sir Cashiers of Banks Other Matters of Interest. Mr. A. J. Smtthson, a prominent busi ness man of Woodbury, Tenn., arranged to come aown to .Nasiiviue Tuesday to bring his son. and two other young men with a view of entering them in a certain business "college. Prof. Draughon having been . informed of these facta, ana tnat tne gentlemen naa not received any of nis advertising matter, called Mr. Smlthson by long distance pnone. requesting mm to investigate the advantages of Draughon'B College, 710 Church street, before entering the boys elsewhere,- -which Mr. BmithBon agreed to do. He arrived In the city the following day and visited Prof. Draughon's college and the other college in question. He also made other investigations, and became thoroughly convinced that Draughon's was the place ror mm to leave tne Doys. Draugnon s college nas broken all records In -entering new students during this week. Monday-and Tuesday it entered .more students than there are students taking bookkeeping at any other business college in Nashville. In addition to the large number of stu dents from a distance, who are entering dally, twenty-four students from the city of Nashville alone have re cently enrolled In Prof. Draughon's -Nasnvme college, uraugnon's College Is the only business college In the city that employs first-class, high-salaried instructors, woo devote their entire time to teaching, and the only school that pretends to employ a teacher of penmanship. Prof. Draughon states that In closing his books on the first of the year he was himself a little surprised to know that he had paid to the faculty of his eight colleges total salaries of J25.202.10 during the past year, which would indicate that he employs very competent teachers. When the nronrletor of n. hiimnARMTVtf- lege has to do his own teaching, enter- rain visitors, attend to his correspondence, . etc., his students must necessarily be nen-lectGd. Tht nf Draughon"s Colleges have nothing whatever to do with the office work, but they devote their entire time to instructing. Draughon's Colleges are con- auctea upon Dusiness principles.- and one who takes a course In one of said colleges Is competent to accept a position on leaving college.
