DALLAS IS TO HAVE CANNING FACTORY Will Have a Daily Capacity of 10,000 Cans IS ‘LOCATED AT ORRVILLE Remarkable Interest Is Being Taken In the Project by Negro Farm ers—Other News of Dallas. Selma, March 2.—(Special.)—At last Dallas county is to have a canning fac tory. Yesterday at Orrville, fourteen miles from Selma, was organized a com pany known as the Orrville Canning company. The capital stock is $0000 and is owned by eighteen citizens of that community. A lot has been secured alongside the railroad and work will commence at once on the buildings and the installation of the machinery. A competent man from Chicago is on his way to Orrville today to superintend the erection of the factory. The company was organized through the efforts of P. Fleming, who has been in this city for several weeks and who urged the citizens of Selma to organize a similar company. The capacity of the plant will be 10,000 cans per day and all arrangements have been made for the raising of the fruit and vegetables to supply the plant. A remarkable feature is the interest that has been displayed by the negro farmers around Orrville, many of whom have come into the city and asked if they could plant an acre or so in tomatoes and other vegetables to sell to the fac tory. There are several fine orchards | around Orrville and others will be planted. The factory will can every thing but ; corn, the latter not proving as profit able as other vegetables and fruit and the machinery being more expensive. The following officers were elected by the stockholders: R. B. Hare, president. J. H. Ellis, vice president. G. W. Burt, manager. Hal Marshall, secretary. J. E. Dunaway, treasurer. The board of directors are C. W. Hill man' I. E. Rosenbaum, Dr. L. H. Moore, Dr. R. S. Sutton, H. L. Dudley. The executive committee in charge of the building are J. E. Dunaway, C. B. Wilson and G.

Anniston, March 2.—(Special.)—A big mining project is under way in the west ern portion of the county, which, if suc cessfully prosecuted, will add much to the property of Anniston and that portion of Calhoun county. A company of Anniston men, consisting of G. B. Randolph, Joe Saks, Amory Quinn, N. F. Johnston, Jr., and others, own Chalybeate mountain, one of the most valuable and extensivo deposits of iron ore In Alabama. The ore is high grade and experts assert that several million tons of it are In easy mining condition. From this mountain was secured the first ore converted into pig iron in the state of Alabama, the in itial furnace being located near, and was in operation before the war. These gentlemen after several years of testing and experimental work have con vinced themselves that the property Is a most valuable one and are getting ready to develop it In an extensive way. Sur veys have already been made to tho property by the Seaboard Ohatchie ant the Louisville and Nashville from Alex andria and it Is very likely that both roads will build lines there In ardor that each may get a share of the Immense tonnage that will be developed. C. P. Nunnelly, who owns a valuable water power near the property, will develop it, and use same In the operation of the washers and for other power purposes. Mr. Cunnelly has had the Ludnig Engin eering company of Atlanta surveying and testing the available water power there fop the past ten days. He Is assured that 3(5 horse power can he developed. Mr. Nunnelly considers that this power Is too valuable not to be utilized and should the expected iron ore developments not ma terialize he will build a dam and use the power himself In the operation of a cot ton mill or for other purposes. DURAND ON STAND. No Change Made In Testimony On Cross-Examination. Chicago, March 2.—The direct examina tion of Special Agent Durand In the pack ers* case was finished today, and the cross-examination commenced. The lat ter occupied the greater part of the aft ernoon, but no change was made in his direct evidence. Early In the day the attorneys in the case engaged in a sharp argument regarding the propriety of ad mitting as evidence in the case the names of 2DO witnesses, which the lawyers for the packers contended had been turned over to the department of justice by Commissioner Garfield. District Attorney Morrison fought hard against a ruling of the court directing him to furnish the names, and when it was finally made informed the court that he did not have them. The court then issued another order directing that the government make a search for the names and for all correspondence relating to them. Found Dead In Bed.

Other News of Atlanta. Atlanta, March 2.—(Special.)—The police here believe they have evidence which will connect Charles H. Clark and Thomas Newman, two of the alleged va grants recently arrested at the Canon hotel, with a safe robbery. Among other things a regular safe crackers’ grip was found In the room which they were oc cupying and along with It were several articles of a suspicions character.

These two and seven others who were arrested In the hotel along with them, have been held on charges of vagrancy and all of them are confined in the county Jail. Among the number It Is believed that several are probably want ed In Macon for various offenses, and the Macon police department has decided to send an officer here to see If any of them can be identified. Major Mims Critically III, Friends all over the state will regret to learn of the critical Illness of Major Livingston Mims, former mayor of At lanta, president of the Capital City club and general agent of the New York Life.

Prospects are bright for the location | in Georgia, perhaps near Atlanta, of the proposed Interstate Juvenile Protectory | or reformatory, concerning which a con 1 ference was recently held with Presi dent Roosevelt in Washington and trus tees were appointed to take up the ques tion of a suitable location. The trustees who were named at the Washington conference, Judge W. R. Hammond and the Rev. Crawford Jack son of Atlanta and Dr. J. L. Mann of Florence, S. C., will hold a meeting in Atlanta tomorrow at noon with the mem bers of the central o advisory commit tee, and these will select twelve other trustees from the various southern states who will meet and decide on a perma nent location for this reformatory. Many of those who will be chosen trustees will be present at this meeting. Among the trustees who will be chosen at this meting are Dr. J. A. Rice, William M. Teague and Dr. E. Gardner Murphy of Montgomery, Ala., while Hon. D. S. Hausman will be made a member of the advisory board from that state. From Mississippi the trustees will be Dr. Wil liam H. LaPride of Jacksonville, Dr. W. R. Jones of Laurel, and Lieut. Gov. W. D. Shands. Louisiana will be represented, by Rev. Dr. J. E. Wray of New Or leans. From Florida there will be Dr. J. B. Ley and Dr. V. K. Shields of Jack sonville, while J. R. Parrot, vice presi dent of the Florida East Coast railroad, will serve on the advisory board. Among those from Georgia who will serve in the work besides those named are ex-Gov. W. J. Northen, Col. Robert J. Lowry, W. Woods White and Rev. Len G. Broughton of Atlanta; Hon John H. Reynolds of Rome; Judge S. B. Adams of Savannah, and William B. Slade of Columbus. Among the members of the advisory board will be Rev. Dr. W. W. Landrum, Capt. J. W. English, President C. A. Wickersham of the Atlanta and West Point railroad; Mrs. H. H. Tift of Tlfton; Mrs. W. H. Felton of Oartersville; George Foster Peabody, Seth Txjw and Dr. Kerr Boyce Tupper of New York. It Is generally believed by those in terested in the movement that Atlanta will gladly give $150,000 toward its es tablishment if the Institution is to be located near this city. Members of the committee who have talked to prominent Atlantans feel Justified in making this statement. Rev. Crawford Jackson who is chair man of the board of trustees, has Just returned from a visit to H. M. Flagler, president of the Florida East Coast rail road and well known capitalist. Mr. Flag ler gave it to be understood that he would make a handsome donation to this in stitution, something like $100,000. provided $1,000,000 is raised from other sources to build, equip and endow it. Mr. Jackson says he has assurances which lead him to believe there will be no trouble in securing the necessary funds as several individuals have already promised hand some sums, one or two of them as high as $50,000. Hard to Get New Business. Some interesting reasons are given to day as to why Ft. L. Foreman gave up h1s general agency here of the Equitable Life Insurance society. The company, it is said, will not, for the present at least, appoint a new generul agent, and that It will be the policy of the large com panies, particularly those which were re cently under investigation In New York, not to push the matter of new business actively, perhaps for some time to come. Mr. Foreman stated that he did not leave the company as the result of any differences with the officials, but purely as a matter of business. While policy holders in the Equitable are not gener ally allowing their policies to lapse or giving them up, he said he had found it a difficult matter of late to secure new business for the company, as people are desirous of waiting until the full re sults of the investigation are known and things are established once more on a firm basis. On this account there will be no general agent appointed, and the Equitable’s office here will be in charge of Alexander Irvin, cashier, and his as sistant, J. J. Satzky. As a result of these circumstances Mr. Foreman resigned the general agency of the Equitable for the purpose of join ing forces with Clarence Angler In the general agency here of the Mutual Bene fit of New Jersey. Bank Granted Charter. The Farmers and Merchants’ bank, of Loganvllle, Ga., Walton county, with a capital stock of $25,<K)0 was granted a charter today by Secretary of State Philip Cook. E. R.

C., where he goes to attend the National Forestry congress to be held in that city.

Smart Shoes for Everybody naces at Ducktown and Isabella, Tenn. As Is well known the destruction to forestry and vegetation from these sul phur fumes has resulted in a suit insti tuted by Georgia in the supremo court of the United States against the two large copper companies at these places, with a view’ to enjoining them from any longer operating their plants in such manner as to cause this destruction in the North Georgia counties. This litigation is now pending in the United States supreme court w’here it w’ill probably come up for hearing at an early date. The copper companies are making a strenuous fight to avoid the injunction as it would involve a large expenditure to them in order to put in a plant for the consumption of these sulphur fumes and their conversion into sulphuric acid. It is claimed that this expense would be something like $2,000,000. Governor Terrell is anxious to get th« opinions of experts regarding the effect of these fumes and as to just W’hat. will have to be done to prevent further de struction. It may be. if the people of that section desire it, be will secure tho services of an expert to make an investi gation and report on conditions in the North Georgia counties affected. Dp.

PATTERSON SAYS HE IS A SOCIALIST Commissioner Sends Resigna tion to Mayor Dunne THINKS SOMETHING WRONG Cannot See Why Things Should More and More Be Concentrated In the Hands of a Few. — Chicago, March 2.—Commissioner of Public Works Joseph Medill Patterson has tendered 'his resignation to Mayor Edward F. Dunne. The resignation was sent by Mr. Patterson to Mayor Dunne Wednesday. Nothing was publicly known of the resignation, however, until today, when a copy mailed by Mr. Patterson at Washington, D. C., was received by the city press association here. The letter was written by Mr. Patter son to Mayor Dunne In which he for warded his resignation, says in part: “It was through a common belief in the cause of municipal ownership of tho municipal utilities that I first became ac quainted with you and In this letter of resignation I desire to express just how my views on this subject have changed. They have not diminished. They (have enlarged. I used to believe that many of the Ills under which the nation suf fers and by which it was threatened would be prevented or avoided by the general inauguration of public ownership of public utilities. But my experience in the department of public works has con vinced me that this policy would not be one-fourth of the way sufficient.” Attempt to Override Law. Mr. Patterson calls the attention of tho Mayor to two Instances in this city where large corporations have attempted, as he says to override the law. The first case Is that of the Illinois Tunnel company I which, despite the fact that Its fran chises provided that its conduits shall always remain twenty-seven feet under ground, has sought continuously to avoid the provision. It repeatedly made appli cation to run its cars over the surface in one section of the city and when the application had been as often refused, it, •according to the words of Mr. Patterson’s letter, “attempted twice to steal the con nection.’’ The letter concludes as follows: Equal Political Opportunity. “The universal ballot gives every male citizen an equal political opportunity. T'ho common ownership of all the produc tions and distribution would give every body an equal chance at music, art, sport, study, recreation, travel, self-respect and the respect of others. I for one cannot see why those things should be concen trated more-.,and more In the hands of a few. Two nundred years ago appropria tion for equal political opportunity would have seemed more absurd than today seems the preparation for equal oppor tunity in all tilings on this eart'h for which men strive. By distributing money evenly T do not moan to say that all the money In the world should he cut up in equal bits and that everybody should get a bit. On the contrary I be lieve that the ownership from which money springs should be invested in the whole community. In other words, ns i understand it 1 am a socialist. I have hardly read a book on socialism, but that which T have just enunciated I be lieve in general to be their theory. If it lie their theory I am a socialist.” Mayor Dunne at once wrote to Mr. Patterson accepting his resignation. Fort Gaines Is Spoken. Mobile.
