PAVING SCHEDULE
FOR COMING YEAR
HAS BEEN AGREED UPON.
STREET# AND TAXES COMMITTEE
HELD LIVELY SESSION.
Meeting Was Long One and Quite
a Lot of Work YVa* Decided Lpon.
Other Street* Mny Be Paved, bat
Will Not Be Conaldered I'ntil Neil
Year—Want Government to Pave
Yorlt and President Street* by
Pontotlice.
At a meeting of the Street* and
Lanes Committee of Council yester
day. which proved a lengthy session,
a schedule of the streets to be paved
next year was practically determined.
It is the intention of the committee
and of Council to make 1905 the best
year the city has ever known so far
as paving: in concerned.
The work agreed upon by the com
mittee does not include all that will
he done next year, but most of the
work is incorporated in the schedule
already made. The city will probably
appropriate at least $50,000 for the
paving work of 1905, and some of the
aldermen favor giving even more than
this.
Next Year** Work.
The streets agreed upon by the com
mittee, which will be paved next year,
are Abercorn. from Park avenue to
Hall: Henry from West Broad to the
cemetery; Bryan from Abercorn to
East Broad; Gaston from Jefferson to
West Broad, and from Price to East
Broad; Jones from Tattnall to East
Broad; Lincoln from Bay to Ogle
thorpe avenue; Gwinnett from Bray
ton to East Broad; Thirty-first from
West Broad to Ogeechee road; Bar
nard from Broughton to Oglethorpe
avenue; Whitaker from Oglethorpe
avenue to Gaston; and West Broad,
from Indian to Broughton.
It was also decided to pave Bay
street from Barnard to Abercorn,
though this will not be taken up until
after the completion of the City Hall.
York and President streets will be
paved from Whitaker to Jefferson,
and the United States government will
be asked to pass an appropriation for
these two streets between Whitaker
and Bull by the postofflee.
Not All Decided.
The list of /streets given in the
foregoing does not include all the
streets that will be paved next year,
but no others will be determined un
til the middle or close of the year,
when it is seen how the appropria
tion stands. It is not even known
yet what appropriation will be made
for the paving department and for
tills reason the committee does not
feel like agreeing upon any more
streets at this time.
North of Oglethorpe avenue from
Jefferson to Drayton streets will be
paved practically solid, when next
yvar's work is complete. It has been
the policy of the city for some time
to connect as many of the pavements
as possible, and it will be seen from
the schedule that this plan has been
followed in making up the work to be
done next year.
Park Extension Walk.
The contract for laying the artificial
stone walk through the Park Extension
was awarded to Thomas Barker. Mr.
Barker's bid was the lowest receiv
ed.
He offered to put In brick concrete
for 79 cents a square yard, or stone
concrete for 91V4 cents a square yard.
The committee decided to take the
stone concrete, although the price is
higher. As the walk will be driven
over by artillery, when phrades are
held. It was thought best to get it as
strong as possible.
The feed contract for November for
the Streets and Lanes Department was
awarded to H. Traub & Son.
MAYOR NOT SATISFIED
WITH CITY’S FINANCES.
Think* There Should Be Abont
$."0,900 More on Hnntl.
Mayor Myers and Alderman Dixon,
the chairnfan of the Finance Commit
tee, of City Council will have a con
ference within the next few days in re
gard to the financial condition of. tjte
city. Although the treasury has about
SIO,OOO more in it than at the same
time last year, MUyor Myers is not sat
isfied .
He says there should be $50,000 or
$60,000 more on hand than the elty
had at this time in 1904. He thinks
people must be paying their taxes too
slow. During the present year about
$60,000 was received by the city from
the sale of land, yet now there is only
SIO,OOO more on hand than was h*ad
last year.
The Mayor says the expenses on the
City Hall have not been as heavy as
was anticipated and that nothing worth
counting Was yet been spent on the
subway. Considering these facts, he
thinks the city should have more mon
ey on hand, he will talk the mat
ter over with the chairman of the
Finance Committee and steps to make
people pay their taxes more promptly
will doubtless be taken.
EXTENDED LIMITS TO
AGAIN ESCAPE TAXATION.
Property In Extended City Limits
Will Escape During; lIMIS.
Property owners In the extended city
limits will not have to pay any taxes
next year.
Toward the close of 1903 there was
a *Teat deal of talk about making the
owners pay this year, tout the matter
has not been brought up in Council,
and It Is safe to suy the property in
the extended limits will escape at least
one more year's taxes.
Mayor Myers said yesterday he did
not think Council would decide to tax
the property next year. If it intends
to do so. an assessment of property
will have to be ordered at once, he
stated. Alderman Dixon, chairman of
Council, stated he did not think there
was time enough to And out the own
ers and make the assessment, even if
It should be ordered by Council at
once. He felt sure the property would
not be taxed during next year, he said.

NO ACTION WAS TAKEN
BY THE OGLETHORPES.
Member* Said They Wnnld Do
Everything Potsihle for Command.
The Oglethorpe Light Infantry, Com
pany’ I. First Regiment Infantry,*
Georgia State Troops, held a special
meeting last night over which Second
Lieutenant Robert A. Cox presided.
In addition to the active or enlisted
men, there were present a goodly num
ber of war veterans, honorary and
and other non-enlisted members of the
corps.
It had been generally reported that
it was the intention of the company
at this meeting to withdrawn from
the state service, but no proposition
of that character was suggested. The
discussion to some extent had a bear
ing on the late affair at Statesboro,
though that was not mentioned, ex
cept incidentally.
Several resolutions were offered,
discussed and withdrawn, and
it was finally unanimously re
solved that the members present
pledge themselves to do all in their
power to support and build up the
company, and the meeting adjourned.
Among those present were former
captains of the Oglethorpes, Col. G. A.
Gordon, Maj. W. S. Rockwell and
Capt. David C. Barrow, and honorary
and veteran members, Col. J. H. Es
till, Lieut. H. A. Crane, Lieut. J. H.
Butner. Veteran Lewis Lippman, and
others.
Capt. Hitch was not present at the
meeting, but the statement was made
on his behalf by a representative that
he remained away in order to permit
the company to discuss its affair free
ly and unrestrainedly. He did not de
sire that any further action be taken
by the company to sustain his course
at Statesboro, believing it had shown
in having passed commendatory reso
lutions some time ago, and in having
elected him an honorary member of
the command after the verdict of the
court-martial had been rendered, that
he had its indorsement.
COULD NOT PARADE
WITH HIS REGIMENT.
I.lent. A. A. Morrison not Officially
Notified of Acquittal.
Because his reinstatement has not
been officially received here Lieut. A.
A. M/orrison, surgeon of the First
Georgia Regiment, took no part in the
review of the troops by Gov. Terrell
Monday afternoon.
Lieut. Morrison appeared at the ar
mory of the regiment in full uniform,
and mounted, but when it was found
that no notice had been received of his
acquittal of charges growing out of the
Statesboro lynching, it was decided he
could not participate in the parade.
When charges were preferred against
him, as a result of the sittings of the
court of inquiry, he was relieyed of air
military duty, and in the absence of
an official announcemeent that the
court-martial had found ‘him not guil
ty. thereby reinstating him. It was de
cided it would not be proper for him to
take part in the parade.
Lieut. Morrison rode to his residence,
discarded his sword and went on pa
rade on his own account. He was in
evidence on the streets and passed the
Governor’s carriage several times.
"They have probably overlooked my
acquittal in Atlanta." said Lieut. Mor
rison yesterday in discussing the inci
dent, “and I wanted the Governor to
see me. thinking, perhaps, he Would
hurry up matters when he gets back
home.”
WILL DECIDE PLANS
EARLY IN JANUARY.
Savaunali Dunk and Trout Cos. Will
Then Determine.
Soon after the first of the year the
question of remodeling the building
now occupied by the Savannah Bank
and Trust Company at Bay and Dray
ton streets, or of building an eight
story structure, will be taken up.
This statement was made by an of
ficial of the bank yesterday in answer
ing another report that the bank di
rectors had decided to erect an eight
story structure. He said no decision
had been reached and the matter will
not be taken up before January.
It had been stated that representa
tives of the bank had seen a number
of parties, with a view to ascertaining
if tenants could be secured for an
eight-story building, and that three
and a half stories had been spoken for.
The bank official denied this rumor.
He stated no one in authority had
made such a canvass, although he had
jocularly asked a business man if he
would take a floor in the proposed
new building.
WILL FEATURE SAVANNAH
IN TOURISTS’ BOOK.
Savannah is to be featured in a
Tourists’ Book of the South which is
to be issued December 15 by a large
Chicago firm. Mr F. H. Richardson,
who is getting material for the book,
called upon Mayor Myers yesterday
and talked with him for quite a while
about Savannah and its many attrac
tions.
In the afternoon Mr. Richardson was
carried on an automobile ride by Mr.
Thomas Halllgan, one of the city
clerks. Mr. Richardson expressed him
self as being better pleased with Sa
vannah than with any city he had
visited in the South. He says this is
an ideal place for tourists and intends
to devote a great deal of space in the
book to pleasure that the city offers.

SAVANNAH MORNING NT.WS: WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 2. 1904.
FUGITIVE RUSSIAN
IS IN SAVANNAH
HAD SERVED HIS FOUR YEARS.
FEARED HE WOILD AGAIN BE
DRAFTED INTO SERVICE.

Fearing he would he impressed into
service to fight for the possession of
Manchuria, Jacob Helfand, a subject
of Czar Nicolas fled the country
and is now a resident of Savannah, the
guest of his brother-in-law, Mr. Aaron
Rauzin, a former member of the Sa
vannah police department.
Mr. Helfand speaks not a word of
English, but with his brother-in-law
acting as interpreter, talks interest
ingly of the war which is now being
waged, and of the assassination of
Baron Von Plehve.
He served four years in the Russian
army, and fearing he might be called
back to service he fled to America
with a number of others who were
able to leave. Helfand is the son of
a well-to-do lawyer in Minsk, his na
tive home, and had a "Governor's
pass,” which enabled him to leave the
country. He left his home shortly aft
er the assassination of Von Plehve. He
states there was great rejoicing among
every class of Russians when the
Baron was assassinated.
In speaking of the Russian arms
Helfand says the soldiers fight with
no spirit, particularly the Jews, who
oppose the possession of Manchuria,
knowing if it falls into the hands of
lhe Russians they will be debarred
from engaging in business there,
which will not be the case if the
Japanese obtain possession.
In fact, he says, the majority of
those now bearing Russian arms want
to see the Japs win. Japanese domin
ion in Manchuria, means a more liberal
policy than would result under Russian
rule, and there would not be the same
stringent restrictions on trade, espe
cially as regards the Jews.
Helfand says the commissions In the
Russian *my are dished out to young
men who have but one ambition, that
of riotous living with little heed of the
great task before them.
He listens with great interest to the
translation of the daily press accounts
of the progress of the struggle be
tween the Japs and the Russians.
Some time ago Mr. Rauzen received
a letter from Minsk in which it was
stated that two of his cousins, who
were members of the Russian army,
had been captured bv the Japanese.
They reported they w r ere treated well
by the Japs.
ANOTHER SHIP ADDED
TO NEW COASTWISE LINE.
North nml Sontli S. S. Cos. to Have
Sailing Every Five Days.
The North and South Steamship
Company announced yesterday the ad
dition of another ship to its Red An
chor Line of steamers between Savan
nah and New York, the addition to be
made at once so the second ship will
leave this port for New York on its
first trip Nov. 17. The new ship, also
owned by the Red Anchor Line, is the
David, a vessel of approximately the
size of the first ship put on this route,
the Santurce, which has been employ
ed on the run now for several months.
Through the addition of the new ship
the company w ill be able to make
sailings from Savannah every five or
six days. The David is now at Jack
sonville, but is expected here about
the middle of the month.
The addition to the line is made
necessary, Mr. Murray M. Stewart of
Stewart & Cos., general agents, says,
because of the increased business that
is offering at this port. Some idea of
the character and amount of this may
be gathered from the size and nature
of the cargo with which the Santurce
sailed yesterday, which was as fol
lows: 4,225 barrels spirits of turpen
tine and rosin, 73 barrels of pine tar,
193,000 shingles, 48 bales of cotton, and
552.000 feet of yellow pine lumber.
The North and South Steamship
Company is not only doing a general
coastwise business. but issues
through bills of lading to all points in
the United Kingdom and continent and
to Eastern points.
ELKS FEEL ENCOURAGED
AT OUTLOOK FOR HOME.
Expert to Raise Remaining $13,000
Within Next Ten Days.
It is expected that within the next
ten davs the first issue of stock,
amounting to $30,000, for the proposed
Elks’ Home, will be all subscribed. Al
ready $15,000 has been subscribed in the
lodge room.
"No canvass has yet been made,”
said an Elk in discussing the matter
yesterday, ‘'but this matter will be
taken up as soon as carnival week is
over. We will experience no trouble
in raising the remaining $15,000 of the
first issue. After this amount has been
secured, and our plans have been final
ly settled, we will need about $25,000.”
No location has yet been fixed upon
for the proposed home. The two sites,
one on Charlton and Bull streets, and
the other on Jones and Bull streets,
are still under consideration. It is in
tended to make the home a handsome
structure and the members of the
lodge are enthusiastic at the outlook.

GOVERNMENT WANTS LAND
CLAIMS IT PAID FOR.
Interenting Salt* la Federal Court*
Certain to Follow.
Col. James B. Quinn, in charge of
the river and harbor improvements for
the Savannah district, received yester
day claims from the government which
have been referred to the several de
partments. with final returns to the
department here.
It is believed they will finally result
in the government's claiming certain
lands which have been the basis of
suits against the government, where
fees have been paid as a result of
judgment for damages resulting from
the harbor improvements.
This matter has been before the pub
lic on several occasions, but it has now
reached definite shape and procedure
will be taken in the federal courts.
The claims and papers in several cases
wore received by Col. Quinn with their
seventh indorsement. The particular
case which brought the matter to a
head was that of a Mr. Williams, who
was proceeding against the govern
ment for alleged damages to his prop
erty through the harbor improve
ments here.
During the pendency of his claim
Mr. Williams sold the land to Mr. A.
H. Heyward. The case was carried to
the Supreme Court, and Mr. Williams
was awarded SII,OOO damages. Tinder
this payment, which it is claimed was
the value of the land, the government
now claims the land, and Mr. Hey
ward will have to look to Mr. Wil
liams for redress.
Col. Quinn stated he did not know
just what method would be followed
in obtaining possession of the lands
which had been the basis of suits
against the government for damages
as a result of overflows, which it was
claimed, were occasioned by the im
provements to the harbor here. In
many instances the claimed value
of the lands damaged was paid, and
the owners continued using the land
for agricultural purposes.
If the courts decide that the govern
ment is entitled to these lands It will
involve thousands of acres along the
Savannah river for miles north of Sa
vannah, and many of those who have
double revenue will lose their land, or
perhaps will be required to return the
amount of money paid them for dam
ages.
The case presents an interesting
problem, and the outcome will be
watched with Interest, especially in
this vicinity.
WALSH TRESPASS CASE
WAS UP FOR HEARING.
Witne** Created Stir by Statement
Regarding Cbalngang Sentence.
After several postponements on ac
count of the absence of J. C. Grant, a
material witness, the case of E. A.
Weil, substitute trustee vs. Mrs. Mary
Walsh, came up for hearing before
Judge Cann yesterday in the Superior
Court, but up to the time of adjourn
ment. had hot been completed, and will
be continued this morning when court
convenes.
During the hearing of the case Grant,
who was fined by Judge Cann several
days ago for eoritempt, stated on being
cross-questioned for the purpose of
impeachment, that he had served a
term on the chaingang, but had been
released before his time was up for
good behavior, and had been allowed
more than the legal number of days on
account of carpenter work which he
had done at the camp.
Judge Cann disallowed impeachment
procedure unless it were in evidence
relative to the ease, but when Grant
had finished his testimony he closely
questioned the witness as to his state
ment that he had been allowed extra
time for his carpenter work at the
camp. When asked if he had been
allowed other than the regular short
ening of sentence for good behavior.
Grant Stated he was told he was al
lowed more than the usual number of
dsys.
Clerk O. Reuben Butler, of the
County Commissioners was sent for,

GUARDS OCCUPY CLUB

Last night the Guards occupied the
rooms formerly used by the Tomo
chlchl club. There were quite a num

ing was passed very pleasantly.
All the classes of membership were
represented. The next business meet
ing will be held Nov. 14, at which
time the new rules and regulations
governing the social department will
be agreed on.
It is expected that the acquisition of
the club rooms will greatly stimulate
interest in the Guards' organization,
and that many will affiliate who do
not care to participate In the military
features of the battalion.

which is booked for four perform
ances in Savannah on Nov. 7 and 8.
He is a fluent talker and an interest
ing showman. When asked what the
feature of the show was this season
he unhesitatingly replied: “A Brute
Opera Company.”
He was politely asked to quit his

mit that the Gentry Bros, have a great
show—a wonderful show, in fact, but
a brute opera company struck -him as
being umong the things impossible.
Then Mr. Tarkington became indus
trious. He pulled a hundred newspaper
clippings from his clothes—clippings
from Boston, New York city and Chi

were long accounts of this brute opera
company, and the papers devoted col

WANT MUCH WORK
IN SOUTH SIDE
COMMITTEE HELD MEETING.
ASKS FOR A SI'MBKR OF IMPROYE
MENTS NEXT YEAR.
That Groreia Infirmary B
Moved and That More Lichta and
Tree* Be Pnt In South Side—Pres
ent Plan of Tree Planting by City
Is Condemned—More Mater Alains
and Additional Paving Also
Sought.
At a meeting of the South Side Ad
visory and Steering Committee last
night plans for the coming municipal
campaign were made and improve
ments that are to be advocated by the
club were agreed upon.
First and foremost among the
things to be worked for by tlie South
Side comes the removal of the Georgia
Infirmary. The club will work in ev
ery way possible to bring this about.
The members say the infirmary has
retarded progress in its vicinity long
enough and they are determined to
get rid of it, if hard work can accom
plish it. The members of the club go
further and say they believe it will
be better for the institution itself if
anew location is secured.
More Lights and Trees.
The committee also insists upon the
opening of Thirty-fifth street, which
was defeated in Council, after a lively
fight, only recently. Whether the club
will be able to push this through re
mains to be seen. There was over
whelming opposition to the plan in
Council when it was up for consid
eration before.
Important improvements that are to
be worked for are more lights and
more trees. At least 500 new shade
trees are needed in the South Side, the
committee says. The members of the
committee contend the present mode of
the city in tree planting is all wrong.
They contend trees can be purchased
ready to be put out for $1 each, and
that this is less than they cost the city
by the tree nursery plan. Both trees
and lights are badly needed, the South
Siders contend. More water mains are
also wanted. There are not enough
for the proper fire protection of the
section, the committeemen contend.
The paving of several streets is also
asked. It is desired to have Thirty
sixth or Thirty-eighth street paved to
the Ogeechee road.
Planning for ruinpalgn.
A committee of 100 will be appointed
to work during the coming campaign.
This committee will be appointed very
soon and will get to work at once. The
first big meeting of the South Side will
be held Friday night, Nov. 18.
The South Siders say they are go
ing to work this year just as though
there was opposition. Arrangements
are to he made to have a number of
speakers at all the meetings and
things will be kept lively from now on.
The Club has a permanent Working
Committee that keeps in touch with
those who are out of employment. For
those who really desire to work posi
tions are secured, not only with the
city and county, but with the rail
roads, mills and business houses. The
organization has an employment bu
reau where the name, age and last oc
cupation of each applicant is kept.
When employment is secured by the
Working Committee the applicant is
notified by postal card.
SONS OF VETERANS TO
TAKE UP HITCH CASE,
Resolutions Will Be Offered for
Passage at Next Meeting.
At the next regular meeting of the
Sons of Confederate Veterans it is in
tended to bring up for action, the find
ing of the court-martial which tried
Capt. Robert M. Hitch as well as the
approval of the finding by the Gov
ernor.
Capt. Hitch is a member of the Sons
of Veterans, and members of the or
ganization say resolutions of confidence
in him will be passed. The matter has
been freely discussed among the mem
bers and the meeting promises to be
interesting. All of the members of
the organization are not in favor of
taking the matter up, it is said, al
though a majority are said to favor
the passage of such a resolution.
GEORGIXcOTTON CROP
PRACTICALLY PICKED.
Very I.lt lie Cotton Remains in tile
Fields in This Section.
So far as Georgia is concerned the
cotton crop of 1904 is practically pick
ed out, there being little if any cotton
in the fields at present.
Mr. H. H. Peeples has just returned
from his plantation in South Carolina
and reports there is no cotton in his
neighborhood to be picked. Mr. Pee
ples says that the crop has been about
as large as last year, with some plant
ers showing larger yields.. The per
fect seasons have made the class much
higher, and there are practically no
low grades.
BLANCHARD’S SIDE~
OF THE DIFFICULTY.
A statement was given out yester
day morning by Mr. B. F. Blanchard,
who was cut Sunday afternoon in a
difficulty with Mr. R. L. Easom, in
which he claims he was attacked first
by Mr. Easom.
He denies he was intoxicated. The
trouble started by Mr. Blanchard ask
ing Mr. E'asom why the latter had
quit .speaking. In the argument that
followed Mr. Easom, he claims, called
him a liar, using an oath.
Mir. Blanchard claims he had no
knife, and that he w'as assaulted with
a knife in the hands of Mr. Easom.
The Injured man then started to run
away. The hearing will be postponed
for a few days until Mr. Blanchard is
able to be up agViln.

VETERANS WILL FIGHT
THEIR BATTLES OVER.
Novel Entertainment Provided for
Regular Meetings.
One of the most interesting meetings
of the . Confederate Veterans Associa
tion held In some time was the one
last night at -which, by unanimous
vote, it was decided to install more of
the social feature Into the meetings,
and arrange entertainments that can
not fail to interest those who attend
the meetings.
Veterans will fight 'heir battles over
again, and on the occasion of each
meeting two or more papers of person
al reminiscence will be read. At the
conclusion of the regular routine busi
ness, President Young interrupted the
motion for adjournment with the
statement that he had been eallel on to
suggest some entertaining features for
the meetings, and in his opinion the
most interesting thing that could be
done would be to have two or more of
the comrades to either read or relate
reminiseencies of the war.
President Young stated that he had
a paper which had been written by his
brother. Mr. William Gourdin Young,
of Charleston, -who accompanied Col.
Louis T. Wigfall to Fort Sumter
when it was first noticed that the flag
Was down. The paper graphically de
scribes the incident which prompted
Col. Wigfall to make the trip, and is
the first authentic description of how
it was first discovered that Sumter
had surrendered.
When Col. Wigfall and Mr. Young,
who was then a private in the Palmet
to Guards, arrived ‘at the fort the air
of desolation was almost indescriba
ble. All of the incidents of that trip
were most graphically described and
the attendants on the meeting sat in
almost breathless ‘attention through
out the reading of the paper.
Mr. Young has been offered a hand
some sum to write the story for Mc
(Jluge's Magaaine, Col. Wigfall's
daughter having written her father’s
account some months ago.
At tlie next meeting of the associa
tion Vice President E. B. Morgan,
who was at Fort Sumter at the time of
th£ surrender, will read a paper relat
ing his experience and observations.
FEW BUYERS AT
NOVEMBER SALES.
ilaher*bnm and Congress Street
Property Brought Jjt4,2.V>.
There were few prospective buyers
at the November sales conducted at
the Court House yesterday, and there
was a consequent lack of spirited bid
ding.
Deputy Sheriff L. L. Meldrim, sold
several small pieces of property for
taxes.
Mr. C. H. Dorsett disposed of two
lots, 3 and 4 on the Ogeechee road, near
the Savannah and Charleston Railway,
40x455 feet, for S2OO, also a 94-acre
farm In the same vicinity. All of this
was sold to Mr. L. B. Shuman. The
price paid for the farm was $375. This
property was a part of the estate of
Mrs. Ida L. Monroe.
Mr. I. D. Laßoche sold 165 shares
of the People's Investment Company to
Mr. J. S. Collins for $2,250. also the
property situated at the southwest cor
ner of Habersham and Congress streets
with improvements, for $4,250. to Mr.
E. I. Okarma. The lot is 90x60 feet,
and the improvements consist of a ten
room house and a smaller residence.
The sale was made subject to the con
firmation of the owners.
JURIES STRIKE SEVERE
BLOW AT DIVORCE EVIL
Erring Defendants Are Not Allowed
to Marry Again.
Two verdicts in divorce cases, one
right after the other, in which the
plaintiff in divorce proceedings has
been granted the right to remarry with
no permission to the defendant is a
step which it is believed will lessen
the great number of divorce cases
which monthly burden the dockets of
the courts.
In the case of Henry Leßoy Hay
wood vs. Gertrude Haywood the jury
yesterday returned a verdict, and a
final decree was issued by the court.
The plaintiff is allowed to remarry,
but the defendant is not. In his peti
tion the plaintiff avers his wife left
him because he complained of her evil
associates.
There have been a number of such
verdicts returned in the courts of
Georgia within the last few months,
and those who have been fighting the
divorce evil believe this will be the
means of abating it.
