Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 6.?The recall of Mayor James G. Woodward was 5 demanded in a petition filed here today with city council.

The petition filed today asks the 5 city council to meet next Monday and set a date for the recall election. It is expected, however, that the date will not be set for some time as j champions of Mayor Woodward and f other officials have indicated that the i validity of the names on the petitions 3 and other matters connected with the recall will be contested in the courts. PEACE PILGRIMS SET SAIL. More Than Four Score Persons Leave New York on Steamer Oscar II. 7 ? ________ New York, Dec. 4.?Henry Ford and more than 80 peace advocates sailed from here today on the steamer Oscar II, for Christiansand, Xor3 way. The party was accompanied by 57 newspaper correspondents and photographers, and more than twen r ' ~ _ r ty general assistants, secretaries and stenographers. } All of the saloons and many of the r cabins on the steamer were decorated *jWith palms, ferns, flowers, flags and 51 streamers representing the national 5 colors of about 17 countries. Red, white and blue predominated. Henry Ford boarded the steamer " at 1:05 o'clock, accompanied by sev" eral friends and three policemen. The " latter held the crowd back while Ford * posed for a score of moving picture cameras and more than 75 other phof tographers. Ford carried a tattered 1 American flag, which he waved with one hand while he repeatedly doffed P his hat to the cameras. " ' The sailing of the Oscar II, scheduled for 2 o'clock, was delayed some * time by the unexpected arrival of 15 " persons who had been invited by P Ford, but had not indicated their intention of sailing. The examination * of the baggage, passports and tickets 7 of the 15 late arrivals, as well as the " final clearing.of the ship of all but s persons who held tickets took up conB siderable time. William Jennings Bryan and ? Thomas A. Edison arrived at the dock 3 an hour before the steamer sailed to 1 bid farewell to Mr. Ford. Mr. Bryan s spent half an hour with Mr. Foyd. Fifteen minutes before the ship was scheduled to sail a messenger boy riding in a taxicab drove onto the pier. The boy carried a large s covered cage, which was believed to e contain a live dove. When the cage was uncovered, however, it was B found that the occupant was a large " grey squirrel. This created much merriment, and one of the secretaries * placed the squirrel directly under one of the mounted peace doves. / i Cope Callings. i & Cope, Dec. 4.?Mr. John May v Tatum, of.the South Carolina Milia tary academy, is spending the weekend with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. a W.

The postoffice department has announced -that beginning February 1, ] rural delivery motor vehicle service i will be placed in operation at Campobello, where there will be two routes, and Pacolet where there will be one. Both places are in Spartanburg coun- < ty. The salary of the carrier on each route will be $1,800.

Chapman, an engineer employed by a lumber company in Colleton county, is being sought by the sheriff, charged with the murder of Alec Grubbs, a negro. It is alleged that the engineer'beat the negro who was stealing a ride on a lumber train, over <the head with a pistol, crushing his skull and then threw him into a deserted field, leaving him to die.

R, Pinckney, a surveyor of Ridgeland, and foreman of the Jasper county grand jury, .committed suicide by cutting his throat at the home of his brother, near Ridgeland, Tuesday night. Mr. Pinckhey had been informed by a specialist that he would Jose his eyesight as the result of some infection and the theory is that he preferred death to blindness. In Spartanburg's recall election in that city on Tuesday, Mayor John F. Floyd, was reelected, but Com- 1 missioners John P. Fielder-and C. B.

Resident Wilson and Mrs. Gait Will Have Quiet Home Wedding;. A] Washington, Dec. 4.?Extreme sim)licity will be observed at the wedling of President Wilson and Mrs. * Gorman Gait, which, the white house mnounced today, will be solemnized December 18, two weeks from today, it the home of Mrs. Gait tyere. The irrangements virtually have been completed. i ^ The president will have no best nan at the weddintr and Mrs. Gait , " ? - ni will not formally select a maid of ^ ionor, although one of her sisters, probably Miss Bertha Boiling, of this jity, will escort her during the cere- ' aiony. w m The announcement at the white r< house that only members of the two families and the president's immesc liate household would attend the wedding and no formal invitations ^ would be issued surprised official ' Washington. It had been expected .. that at least a few of the president's friends would be invited. The Rev. Herbert Scott Smith, rector of St. Margaret's Protestant Epis- B copal church here,; which Mrs. Gait \ I n has attended in recent months, has p ' R been selected as the officiating clergy- D man, although it is possible that the a Rev. Sylvester Beach, pastor of the 0 president's church in Princeton, may a assist. The president is a Presbyterian. OX \BIG COMMUTES. The Position of Palmetto State Gains Influence in the House. Washington, Dec. 4.?South Carolina's position in committee influence ^ in the house of representatives as a ' result of the selections made by the r ways and means majority and ratified by the Democratic caucus this n afternoon, is stronger than in the last congress. Mr. Whaley made a striking advance, going to the committee on the judiciary, which is one of the several committees which are so im portant that members who secure assignments to them are not allowed to serve on any other committee at the same time. / Mr. Finley retains his position as ranking member of the postoffice committee, also one of the big committees. Mr. Lever remains chairman of agricultural committee, another of the major class. ^ * Mr. Aiken continues as the rank- s ing member of the committee on the District of Columbia, and also has r places on the committees on the census and on expenditures in the navy department. Mr. Byrnes is made chairman of the committee on mileage, and in addition is placed on the committees on b merchant marine and fisheries, roads. 5 and war claims. Mr. Ragsdale, retiring from the P banking and currency committee, obtains positions on the committees on foreign affairs, District of Columbia, and industrial arts and expositions/ Mr. Nichols gets on military affairs, performing the feat of landing on j on? of the leading committees at the very start. Friends of Representative Byrnes made a strong fight to put him on the appropriations committee as the P successor of former Representative Johnson, and he came very near winning, but the Texas influence in behalf of Representative Buchanan, of F that State, was too powerful to be overcome. Texas has a member of the ways and means committee as well as two members of the cabinet. Merchant marine and fisheries, however, is a more important committee than Mr. Byrnes had in the last congress, and is increasing in import- J ance an tne ume. v Allendale Man Hit by Auto. Allendale, Dec. 5.?R. Wvatt Youngblood was last night about 7 o'clock run over while driving* from Allendale to Seigling in his buggy, which was struck by an automobile. The car struck the horse's head, killing it instantly, throwing Mr. Youngblood out, the car passing over his body. The car was stopped and backed up to the scene of. the accident, passing over his body a second time. It is impossible to arrive at the extent of Mr. Youngblood's injuries, as they are principally internal, but he is in a very serious condition. No arrests have peen made. Mr. Youngblood is about 60 years s< of age and is a sufferer from palsy. The health of the town of Bamberg has tyeen unusually good during si the summer and fall. Isn't it due to the increased use of Glendale Mineral Spring water? At Mack's Drug Store and Herndon's Grocery Store.?adv. . C. CONFERENCE ENDS PPOINTMENTS OF PASTORS ANNOUNCED. ev. A. J.
