Ono of the largest and most represent ative citizens', meetings ever held .in Union City was in the City Hall last Monday night. Mayor Coble had issued a call asking the citizens en masse to meet tho Board of Mayor and Aldermen at the City I fall for the. specific purpose of taking up and disposing of the sewerage proposition. Contract for a system of sewerage- in Union City wasf made with Sullivan & Long, of Birmingham, Ala., on a basis of $2S,4M for complete contract in three installments, the first installment in cluding septic tank, the mains and a for $12,500, the threo installments to be clone at intervals and completed in three years, the contract being binding on Sullivan it Long to complete only the first installment. Provided, , however, that in cast! the city should make pro visions for one complete job without in terruption, tho work to proceed until finished, Sullivan &, Long were held re sponsible to complete the work as speci fied. The first installment will costapprox . imately $14,500, including Mr. Jenks' commission as engineer and $550 paid for the land on which septic tank is lo cated. Mr. Jenks' commission is 5 per cent additional of the entire contract, payable as iho work is completed. - , This was tfie quest ion to be acted up on last Monday night and the crowd was of one mind that the sewerage system should be completed under one contract, the one now in force with Sullivan & Long, and to be finished as rapidly as the work can be done, which will be some time next year. Mayor Coble read a proportion made by Sullivan & Long to the city, in sub stance as follows: If the city agrees to have the work continue until finished under one contract, Sullivan & Long proposed to carry the city for 110,000 with 8 per cent interest until January, 1911. The Mayor explained further that the city had borrowed $0,000 to complete payments for the first installment, but that this indebtedness would without any unforeseen event be canceled next February. It was then up to the city to provide for a floating debt of $1G,OOU to complete the sewerage as proposed under one coirtract. Of this Sullivan & Long proposed to carry $10,000. the city to raise the remaining ffi.000. Mr. Jenks, the engineer, was present j and was asked to make a statement. He said that the work of the first install ment, approximately three miles, has been completed as planned out to the Lmiimhirv on Fast Main street with the r . - - ' 'exception of work on Second and Third . ... 1 .! .1 streets, leauiug iroiti uie main sotue- MVH V ...

Mr. Jenks made a brief exhibit of the sewerage, making it possible for every family in tho corporate limits to be con nected, if they so desire. Citizens must rernember, however, that it is not storm sewerage, but sanitary sewerage, there fore the surface water is not provided for, simply the waste from the bath tubs and sinks and the deposots in the closets. It is sanitary sewerage strictly. Storm sewerage would have required much larger pipes and a very much larger ex penditure without relative advantages. Hence it was that the city deemed storm sewerage impractical. A motion was made by Mr. Barney that the city accept tho proposition to complete the sewerage made by Sullivan & Ioug, if the money could not be had for less than 8 per cent, in any event to borrow the money and complete the sewerage system under one contract with Sullivan & Long. The motion was seconded. Mr. Walker and several others ad dressed the Mayor upon the proposit ion. Mr. Walker thought that the money could be secured at a lower rate than S jkt cent, but he was heartily in favor of finishing the work withoutdelay. Others spoke up and concurred in the move ment and the., sentiment prevailed all over the house. Citizens were asked if they were willing to sign the notes for $10, 000 as security and nearly every man in the house responded.- A vote was then taken upon Mr. Burney's mo tion and passed without a dissenting voice. For the benefit of those who did not hear Mr. Jenks' statement we will re produce the plan as published in this paper Aug. 5. This will simply show where the pipes are to be laid and not the course of drainage. The septic tank will be located about 575 feet north of the covered bridge lead ing into Union City"from the northwest.

I had a talk with the famous German astronomer, Trof Andreas Galle, of the Polsdam Geodeti cal Institute, who assured me that win he got through with him, Commodore Peary, the man who has been honored by the world over as the real discover of the North Pole, will Jook no better than his despised rivals Dr. Cook. Prof, Galle, whom nobody will think of ac cusingof any bias in the matter, has for many mouths been submitting Teary' "proofs" to a very critical examination The ' Professor asserts that Peary until now had given absolutely no scientific proofof having ever been near the North Pole, but on the other side has made several assertions which tend to show that he has never been there. The so-cailed proofs" published by Peary are of no scientific value what ever, no more so than Dr. Cook's, said Prof. Galle, and at the same time he added that Peary did not even possess the instruments necessary to find out where he was at any certain time during his trip. Furthermore, the Professor said, Peary would not have known how to use the instruments if he had had them. Nothing in Peary's own reports show how he knew that he was traveling straight North during the latter part of his trip. The only way to make sure of this was by using theolodlits and ob servations of the stars, but Teary had done neither. In a very short time Trof. Galle will publish his criticism in the Ductsclie Revue, the well known German month ly, but at present he asserts that nobody is entitled to make the statement that he has reached the North Pole unless he is able to prove this by observations that will stand the test of science, and there is nothing, absolutely nothing, scientific in the observations made by Peary.

McCutchan The Popular Price $oe Store Vanderbilt-Sewanee. Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 14. Now that the football elevens representing Vander- bilt and Sewanee Universities have gone through the season undefeated, enthusi asts on the game are awaiting eagerly the annual battle between these teams here Thanksgiving. From all appearances it will be the greatest game that the South has wit nesses in many years, fco lar, anuer bilt has shown the strongest defense, having been scored against only once, Mississippi getting a safety and two points; Sewaneo has been scored against frequently, but she has also piled up bigger scores against her opponents than has Vanderbilt. Both teams are vigor ously claiming the victory. The most enthusiastic, however, are willing to grant that it will be the great battle of the season. Plans have been launchid for a great reunion of the anderbilt Alumni Thanksgiving morning. Already more alumni have expressed their intention of attend-" than in any year previous. A largifi'nibly room has been secured at th jJmitago Hotel, and the alumni will P yen an opportunity to renew old acqu' glances and have ft general old time ollifica.ion. Prominent alumni and faculty will make short talks, but the time will be devoted mainly tohand shaking, recounting experiences and lunching together. The University ath letic trophies will be on exhibit, and cigars and light refreshments will be served. Tickets for the big game went on sale last week, and Prof. Chas. 8. Brown,, who has charge of this department, de clares that the advance sale has. so far outstripped all previous records. A sptx-ial rate of ono fare plus n third has beetfjnade on all railroads. The Sewaneo Alumni promise to also turn out in largo nundx'rs, and athletic fans from all over the South are expected to witness the big battle.
