o ATLANTA LETTER o
ATLANTA. Ga.. Dec. 18.?The At
lanta grand jury is again in the midst
of a sensational investigation of the
city's fashionable clubs, to determine
whether or not their sale of bever
ages to members violates the prohi
bition laws. The jury has found itself
handicapped by having nearly every
juryman a member of at least one
such club, and has got around this
disqualification question by using al
A juryman who is a member of the
Capital City Club will retire white
that club is under consideration. He
will come back, however, to pass on
the Piedmont Driving Club or any
other of which he is not a member.
The court takes the ingenlus posi
tion that a member of ono club will
have no sympathy for another.
Jurymen whose relatives arc club
members are barred, and this brought
from one member a protest.
"How about you fellows whose
daughters attend every club dance?"
he asked. "That's as close as being kin
to a club, member."
It was expected that little will come
of the investigation, which has been
undertaken several times before.
ForreBt Adair, for many yoars po
tentate of the Yaarub Temple of Shrl
ners, has been re-elected for another
year, after a good natured race In
which he defeated Walter P. Andrews,
almost as popular in Atlanta as Mr.
Adair himself. Plans for sending a big
delegation to the Seattlo convention
next summer are being put under way.
The Shriners won a point in a) law
suit this week, when Judge H. L. Pat
terson of the Blue Ridge circuit, is
sued a temporary Injunction prohib
iting the negro order which calls It
self the "Ancient Egyptian Order jf
Nobles of the MyBtlc Shrine" from
using the word "Shrine" in its title.
Judge Patterson was called upon by
the local temple for tho reason that
every local judge is a shrlner and
therefore disqualified. Mr. Adair led
the movement to stop the African or
der from using tho Sbrlnero' name
Seven bishops of the northern and
southern branches of the Methodist
church are in session this week at a
local hotel in an effort to reunite the
two branches, which separated over
the slavery question in 1844.
The movement is gaining interest in
Atlanta church circles particularly at
this time because the Egleston Memor
ial, a "Northern Methodist", church
long established, here,, is planning a
moro pretentious edifice near Druid
Hills, and it la believed that it the
Junction , of the two branches is put
through the new building will be, of
benefit to many' more members than
would otherwise be the case.

Anothor, and perhaps tho final, ef
fort to save tho life of Leo M. Frank
was made by bis attorneys yesterday
afternoon before Judge W. T. Newman
of the United States district court.
Judge Newman has the mattter under
advisement and an early decision is
The lawyers filed a petition for a
writ of habeas corpus, which was bas
ed on the ground that when Frank
was absent from the courtroom as the
verdict was read his constitutional
rights were violated,, and when this
was done the state courts lost Juris
diction in. the .case.
In the event Judgo Newman issues
such an order the State will have Its
first opportunity or reason for an ap
peal. It can appeal from Judge New
man to the United States ~ supreme
court. Should he deny tbe writ, Frank
can appeal, so it now appears that
the condemned man has many months
of life before him no. matter which
turn the case may take.
. Should Judge Newman grant the
writ, and should he be sustained by
the. high tribunal,. Prank would be
discharged from custody, a tree man.
. His iawyert* are making this move
in the hope of getting the case before
the United States supreme court on

Georgians have learned with inter
est of the memorial services held In
the United States Senate this week to
honor the late Senator Augustus. O.
Bacon, who died last year after long
service in the upper house.
Senator Hoke Smith delivered an.
eloquent eulogy upon the former sen
ior stumor from ueorgia, awemng up
on his devotion and his ability.
"To say that, by his death the senate
lost one of its ablest and most ex
perienced members feebly expresses
the truth/' said, Senator Smith. "He
came, to the senate splendidly equip
ped for his work. .He gave to the du
ties of the senate sd) of bis ability and
all of bis life. Service as a senator was I
tbe though and Joy of his life. He
brought to tho service c devotion
rarely equalled and never excelled."
Senator Thomas W. Hardrvlck Join
ed his Georgia colleagues in eulo
gizing upon tho former statesman, and
neven other senators from as many
states paid glowing tributes to Senat
or Bacon'B memory.
The Atlanta police force, which has
bad its hands full with burglaries and
hold-ups recently, has been increased
by twenty-threo men for the Christ
mas holidays, when street traffls is
heaviest and when pickpockets and
burglars aro busiest.
A strong effort is being made to find
funds for a permanent increase of the
police force. Atlanta covers an unusu
ally wide territory even for her large
population, and it is impossible for tho
present force adequately to cover it.
It in a common remark for a citizen
to make that: "I haven't seen a police

children don't know what a policeman
