High officials of the Southern rail
road hold a conference at the general
freight office here Tuesday morning.
' All of the head officials, from President
, Fairfax Harrison down to division su
perintendents, wore present. Contrary
to predictions, no great changes were
made in the operation of the road. The
meeting was not long and was merely
a discussion of ways, in which the
freight congestion could be relieved.
Wcrlc of the new bureau, the head
quarters of which is in Birmingham,
was emphasised in fact, the entire
meeting was a discussicn of ths plans
of the department, which have been
It was brought out that the first
thing to be done was to clear all of
the lines for freight movement and to
see that the shortest routes were al
ways used in handling cars. The new
bureau in Birmingham has been work
ing on this since it was organized sev
eral days ago. It is a freight informa
tion bureau. Other duties aside from
routing cars for manufacturers is to
see that all cars are unloaded
promptly and put into immediate use
as soon as they have been released
from one load. In this way the situa
tion will be greatly relieved.
Officials havo been of the opinion all
along that the biggest thing- that the
government could do would be to pool
all of the equipment It has been their
lelief that no great changes would
be made and that what changes would
be made would be brought about so
traduallv that they could not be no-
tloed. At any rate. It was agreed that
At a meeting Tuesday afternoon of
the city commissioners, it is under
stood that Mayor Littleton will present
to the city commissioners for their ap
proval a budget compiled by the fed
eral health authorities now in the city.
The funds asked for in the budget are
to be used by the city health depart
ment, if they are appropriated, for Jhe
betterment of the health and sanitary
conditions in and around Chattanooga.
The total amount asked for is $25,000,
as given out by Dr. C. P. Knight, of
ficer In charge.
In making up the budget for the
work, the department has asked the

Chamber of Commerce Acts.
At the meeting of the directors of the
Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce,
which was - held Tueslay afternoon
the question of passing upon the rec
ommendations was discussed. The
chamber is expected to approve of
these regulations and vote to give
them their earnest support The ques
tion of helping the health officials in a
financial way will also be taken up.
In speaking of the plans of the fed
eral authorities, J. Read Voigt, presi
dent of the chamber, states that he
thinks they should be adopted In toto,
and that Chattanooga as a whole
should consider this an unusual op
portunity, and one that the city
should avail itself of. In referring to
the good that may come from this
sanitary program, Mr. Voigt said that
it could not be calculated, but that he
was sure it will result in a more
healthy city.
The mayor is also very mucn in
favor of the program as mapped out
by the United States officials and has

Matt Elliott, Clerk of Light
House, Held to Grand Jury
for Liquor Dealing.
Matt Elliott, clerk at the Light
house, has by Ms persistent and untir
ing efforts to let the boys have a
little taste of the high priced and
forbidden commodity of liquor suc
ceeded in seriously entangling himself
within the toils of the. law. Matt,
together with two grips of liquor, was
taken in tow Monday by Constable
Farry Lawson and Deputy Sheriff
Teasley. He was taken before Squire
H. B. Caulklns and held to the grand
Jury under $50 bond, which wr s made
through his attorney, Carl Abernathy.
Elliott is well known In Chattanooga,
having for a number of years preceed
ing the prohibition laws, conducted a
saloon on lower Market street. After
the saloons were abolished he estab
lished .a near-beer pla.ee with a pool
room attachment and ran it until he
was arrested for selling whisky. Later
he secured a position as clerk at the
Light house and has been employed
there since.

ever, the general laughed and joked
with them, inviting them to continue
in their attack.
After Gen. Thompson disappeared
in the courthouse he went to the clerk
and master's office and filed the bill
which seeks to ouster the sheriff of
Hamilton county and the father of the
boys who had playf-illy attacked him
with snowballs a few minutes before.

One of the most meritorious bills
that haa been seen at the Rialto is
there for tho first half of ths week
and it not marred by a single, weak
act. It is a difficult matter to say
wthich act features the bill, each hav
ing its own distinct merit and regis
tering emphatic hits. Swor & Avey,
who havo been seen in Chattanooga
before, offer an entirely new act, pref
aced by a bit of silent acting that
brings a laugh from the rise of the
curtain. It almost seems unfortunate
that the two comedians need break the
silence, but their crossfire is new and
well put across.

The question of whether the Chatta

subject that created much attention at
the meeting of the board of directors of
the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce
Tuesday afternoon. The president stated
that If such a thing as this was being
indulged In by the merchants of this city
steps should be taken at once to prevent
it. On the other hand, if the local mer
chants were treating the soldier boys (of
which the profiteering has been re
ferred) on the wuare and holding tbem
up they would be stopped. A special
committee was appointed to make a

City Attorney Frank Carden did not

Court Clerk Charles Hayes at the

clerk asked that no recommendations
be made until they had time to look
over the report of Auditor Peterson,
which was not furnished them until
Tuesday morning. A large number of
the reports were supplied and much
time was taken in preparing them.
City Attorney Carden said that he
would not deny them the courtesy
asked. The matter will be brought
