It was late in the day before the regular docketlwas taken up, prelimi naries occupying the attention of the court. The case of Perkins vs Watson was called and from all appearances will bo the ques tion before the court for some time. The case as has been stated before, involves a planta tion in the prairies, the suit arising from an illegal sale that is said to have taken place. The property had been mortgaged and was sold at public auction by a trustee whom it is claimed had not this right as there was no record to show his appoint ment rs such. Other techni calities make the decision in the case uncertain. Mrs. Perkins is represented by Col. Win. Baldwin and Judge Brame, of Jackson, while Mr. Watson has as his representative Col. T. J. O'Neill. Chancellor McCool has, as yet, rendered no decision in the Co lumbus Insurance Bank case. Y. M. C. A. Reception. A meeting was held in the parlors of the Gilmer Htel Mon day morning for tli3 purpose of arranging the reception to be given to the Y. M. C. A. delega tion on the evening of Tuesday, April 12th. About forty ladies were present. The reception is to be superintended by the youug ladies of Ihe city assisted by such other ladies as they have selected. The plans arc to give a reception that will reflect cred it on the hospitality of Colum bus and to further tins cause the ladies present agreed to give one dollar each toward supply mg refreshments. It is pro posed to invite all the young met. of the city to be present on thi occasion to become acquainted with the visitors and it is hoped that a large number will respond to the invitation. The reception will involve some expense and it is the desire of the ladies that those who feel so inclined to contribute toward the refresh meut fund, will leave their contributions with Mr. John Laws at Johnston and Caine's drug store.

U j I At a meeting of the repre-1 sentative business men and citi zens and of the oflicers of the three bauks of the city yester day morning at the City Hall the report of Mr. Arthur Whittam, the textile expert sent to Cohoes, New York, to investigate the of fer of the Cavanaughs of that city, was made public aud after a full discussion of the offer by the gentlemen present a committee was appointed to make an offer to the New York manufacturers and this offer was that the peo ple of Columbus will take the sixty thoasands of dollars of bonds necessary to secure the location of the plant here. The committee to whom the matter was referred was composed of the followinggcntlemen: Messrs. Walter Weaver, T. O. Burris, E. C. Chapmau, R. T. Williams, John T. Wood, W. H. Lee, Chas. Sherrod, Harry Selig, W. C. Beard aud W. S, New by. Mr. Williams was called to the chair in their deliberations aud it was upon the motiou of Mr. John T. Wood that the offer was accept ed. The matter will at once be placed before the various banks of this city as well as the people generally and. already there is assurance that the full amount of bonds will be taken. The report of Mr. Whittam was full and exhaustive, every special feature which he was re quested to develope was covered fully and all of the information asked for was given. The in veatory of the machinery of the Cohoes mill was valued by the Cavauaughs at 8103,000, but Mr. Whittam 's estimate scaled it to 88,000.00. He stated that it was In good condition aud that the only obstacle which the New York manufacturers had en countered in the successful con duct of the mills was the cost of yarn aud the cost of labor and fuel. These conditions which operate so severely against the mills in the North will be over come here. Mr. Whittam 's report stated further that the Cavanaughs arc known all through the Eist as successful manufacturers and that they have oiler mills at present running in this section which are doing a good work and making money. The mill which they propose building here will employ about L"o operatives and its capacity is about 250 dozen ucl i as under garments per day, shirts, shirts, etc. The proposition is that th people of Columbus shall take sixty thousand dollars of six p-.-r cent, interest bearing bunds or shall take stock" just as they de sire. Of this sixty thousand dollars about thirty-tive thousand of this amount will be spent right here in C aious ia Ml- undiug am engines, structing the mil equipping it with ers. etc. The remainder of the sum, about twenty-live thousand dollars, will be employed operating capital. The sixty thousand dollars in bends 4 1 . iu i i ii nioi!jc.;e lip ciii plant and thus th se who :' scribe to them will have a sixty thousand dollar mortgage on a piece of property valued at -rd.n.-000. It is the purpose of the Kavanaughs to send a skilled superintendent to this city to run the plant and skilled super intendents for each dopirtmeut to instruct the labor.
