ALL AT WORK FOR ATLANTA. promoters of the exposition SOW IS SEW YORK. A Conference Held With the Etecn tive Committee of the t'hnmber of Commerce—The Chamber Invited to Send a Committee to the Sooth Thto Month to Meet the Committee* From Western Cltieit—The Itiner ary of the Elbert y Hell. New York, Auk. I.—Several gentlemen who represent the Cotton States and In ternational Exposition of Atlanta, met the executive committee of the chamber of commerce this morning. The delegation was composed of Evan P. Howell, editor of the Atlanta Constitution: Hon. Porter King, mayor of Atlanta; Stewart Wood son. president of the chamber of com merce; ex-Gov. Bullock, H. H. Cabaniss, manager of the Atlanta Journal; Dr, Spalding. T. B. Neal, J. E. Maddox, \V. C. Saunders and Jam.s Stewart. Those of the executive committee of the New York chamber of commerce present were Henry Henlz. chairman, and Messrs. Woodbury, Langdon and Jesse Simmons. The gentlemen from the south were en thusiastic over the outlook of the coming exposition and short talks were made by President Woodson. ex-Gov. Bullock. Dr. Spalding, Col. Howell and Mr. Cabaniss. Mr. Woodson extended a formal invita tion to the chamber of commerce to send Its executive committee to Atlanta in Au gust, as Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati and other western cities would have delega tions there to look over the scope of the great exhibition. Col. Howell said that the cotton states exposition of 1881 had done more good than the world's fair. Among other things it brought about a revolution in the handling and marketing of cotton seed. Then, there were only two oil mills fn the south. To-day the cotton seed product is worth $67,000,000 yearly. The meeting was full of interest and Mr. Langdon offered the following resolu tions, which were seconded by J. E. Sim mons and adopted: Whereas, The citizens of Atlanta, Ga., have organized the Cotton States and In ternational Exposition to be opened on the 18th of Septebemr next. and. Whereas, The government of the United States has given to the exposition its rec ognition by the appropriation of $200,000 to pay the expenses of an exhibit made by the government under the supervision of its officials, and. Whereas, Many of our sister states have made appropriations of money and ap pointed commissioners to represent them at the exposition, and Whereas, The New York state commis sion recently returned from Atlanta re ports that the grounds and buildings al ready indicate that in magitude the ex position will be second only to that held in Chicago and through a mutual knowl edge of the resources and industries to each section, and of the South American republics, whose exhibits will be a fea ture of the coming exposition in Atlanta, and. Whereas, A better understanding of tlnancial conditions will be promoted by personal intercourse between the business men of our'severa! sections. Resolved, That the executive committee of the New York chamber of commerce —pending the general meeting of the chamber to be held in October next—ap prove the action of our state legislature in making provision for the representa tion of our state, and the action of his excellency, the governor. In appointing commissioners to the Cotton States and International Exposition. Resolved further. That we visit the fx ■positlon and we hope that the represen tatives of our commercial and Industrial Interests will avail themselves of this chance to make such exhibits as will be creditable to the resources and activities of New York. The* committee are at the Waldorf. They all think the exposition will surpass all American expositions except the world's fair at Chicago. Philadelphia, Aug. I.—The Joint commit tee of the city council on the Atlanta ex position met this afternoon to.arrange and complete the details of the trip for the Liberty bell, which is to be in the south during the festival. Chairman Miles of the committee on cor respondence and arrangements, stated that he had received a letter from Thotnas Keenan, secretary of the state commission at Harrisburg, in which the latter stated that the Pennsylvania building would be completed and ready for the reception of the bell by the opening day. Sept. 18. The historic relic is to be exhibited in an open foyer under a canopy, which can be re moved in case of necessity in ten minutes. No action was taken looking to a civic and military display in connection with the departure of the bell, as the cost of the military display would probably have to be taken out of the committee's ap propriation.

The Second of the Ilyehnrg Murder ers on the Gallows. Live Oak. Fla., Aug. I.—On the same gal lows from which Henry Brown was hang ed on July 17. George Mitchell ,a second of the Ryeburg murderers, was executed to day. The execution was public, about I.UOO spectators being present. Mitchell was brought out at 11 a. m„ and after a religious service, he spent over an hour In a religious talk, protesting his inno cence. Mitchell did not huve a bad face and some of the spectators think he may have been innocent. He died without a struggle. For many weeks this county has been on the verge of a lynching, owing to the gi neral impression that the execution, ot Brown, Mitchell and Stevens, the mur derers of Alfred Ryeburg, would not take place. This impression was probably deep, er-seated because the evidence against these negroes was circumstantial and ow ing to the frequent long delays and com mutations that serve to defeat Justice. But the evidence, though circumstantial, was strong. Ryeburg In his dying state ment said that the three train hands In flicted the wounds from which he was dying, and Ryeburg had been on this train, which was a freight train, for sev eral hours and had every opportunity to know the train hands and undoubted'.:,’ did know them. He said positively there were three negroes and all the evidence proved that these were the only three negroes on board. Subsequently Brown acknowledged his guilt and Stevens said Brown and Mit chell did the killing, while he stood by and sasv it done. So when Brown, in his talk on the gal lows, said he alone killed Ryeburg, every body believed Brow n died with a he in his mouth, and especially so since Brown had made several contradictory affidavits pre viously. Mitchell was a young negro, yet In his 20's; he claimed to be a member of a Baptist church at Thomaeetlle, Ga., and that he had been a Christian ever since he joined the church. Rev. George J’. McKinney was Ills spirit ual adviser and gave him constant alien tlon till the execution. There is no further fear of a lynching, as everybody believes that Stevens, the third man, w ill hang soon.

Cleveland, 0., Aug. I.— Robert J.. the king of the turf, is king no longer. The honor was wrested from him by that game black stallion, Joe Uatchen, in the most exciting speed contest ever seen on a grand circuit track. It has been known since last season that Joe Patchen was a treat race horse, but even his warmest admirers did not believe that he was speedy enough to defeat the phenomenal Robert J. In the auction pools Robert J. sold for J 25 and the field for to. In the books, the Hamlin world-beater was barred. He was supposed to have a cinch on the race and most of the hotting was on Joe Patchen for a place. After the first heat tl on the field brought tod on Robert J. The second heat was the beginning of the surprise that was to follow. The favorite and his rival came into the stietch neck and neck after having paced the middle half in one minute. Jack Curry, who was driving Patchen, seemed to push the black whirlwind under the wire, and he won by the shortest kind of a nose, in 2:04%. The last two heats were a trifle easier for the black stallion, although he won by less than a length each time. It was the fastest four-heat race ever paced, and the last heat, in 2:os'*, w’as tile fastest fourth heat ever paced. A GREAT FINISH AT OAKLEY. Three Horses Finish Noses Apart In n Terrific lirive.

SIICIDE OF PORTER STOCKS. Capt. Gary In Atlanta to Explain the Whole Affair. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. I.—Capt. T. E. Gary, superintendent of the Mlneola convict camp, arrived in Atlanta this morning and called at once on Principal Keeper of the Penitentiary Turner. Capt. Gary is ex tremely reticent in regard to the death of Porter Stocks and says he will wait until Saturday before making a statement. “I will give all the information 1 have at the investigation Saturday,” he said. Dr. Howell, the camp physician, and Guards Dan and Carl Wynn and Kendrick will arrive in Atlanta to-morrow, and will be present as witnesses. The report that Stocks was allowed un usual liberties is a mistake. He was grant ed such privileges as are usually accorded trusties.

Gary believes that after a full in vestigation he will be acquitted of all blame on account of Stocks’ suicide. PIT IN A RECEIVER'S HANDS. The Columbia* Southern Railway Pinched Financially. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. I.—T. E. Blanchard, of Columbus, was to-day appointed re ceiver for the Columbus Southern rail way, operating from Columbus to Al bany, a distance of 87 miles.
