CHATTER. Gossip of a Good, Instructive Sort That Livens Early Spring. WORKING FOR THE WIREGRASS An Old Citizen Eulogizes Governor Troup andCcmmends the Times—Sci entific Structure “l,’’said the Old Settler as he pinned The Times man into his chair iD the Oglethorpe, “am an original wiregrass man. Ashamed 'of it? No, proud of it. lam ashamed only of the manner in which a section of the state has been doing its share of voting, has been giving up its share of governing to the Atlanta ring. It’s a long time since Brunswick even had a man in congress. It is still longer since the wiregrass country has grown a gov ernor.” Tiik Times man ventured to inti mate a doubt as the capacity of the soil of wiregrass Georgia to sprout political giants. The Old Settler smiled a smile of in *finite weariness. “The story of old Governor Troup, as told last Sunday in The Times, tells another tale. No, the soil’s all right; the people’s all right; the party’s all right. It’s that blamed Atlanta ring. They have taught the people that the only busi ness of a wiregrass democrat is to put a ballot, made by a city lawyer, into a box made by a country carpenter, and take himself off to his plough again. But—say, lemme tell you—’’and the grizzled veteran smiled grimly—“old George Troup, the man who defied John Quincy Adams, was not built on any such accommodating plan. I once heard an old timer call him the ‘John the Baptist of state’s rights,’ and a few such men nowadays would give those Atlanta fellows something to base a few sad thoughts on.” ‘‘And I’m not alone in my opinion, either,” resumed the Old Settler. “Don’t think that. Listen to this from the Macon Telegraph,” and in his quavering old voice he read the following chunk of editorial wisdom : “ ‘The wiregrass people can accom plish nothing until they get together. As long as the Atlanta ring can split them the ring is safe.’ “How’s that? And this, now, from the Valdosta Times?” The newspaper man tied. Life is short, and the excerpt from the Val dosta paper was a yard long. “The new Downing warehouse de serves mention,” said a gentleman yes terday, “as one of the most soientitlc ally constructed buildings in the coun try. Somehow, I think that those who planned it studied long and hard over the problem of putting together a model structure, and they are suc ceeding admirably.” The latest phrase is: “He got the heart punch.” It is an outcome of the recent prize fight, and the blow that put Corbett to sleep; and it is to be u sed as a substitute for the timeworn “mnrble. heart,” “stony glare,” “icy face,” etc. MUST PAY TAXES. The Eight and Water Company's Par ti Hi Exemption Has Expiri and. beginning with this year tlie Eight and Water company must pay city taxes on the full assessed valuation of its property. Under the contract made by the city with the company, when it tirst estab lished itself here, the city granted tax exemption for ten years on all of the company’s property that exceeded 150,000 in assessed valuation. The ten years expired with last year, and, from now on, the company must pay taxes on all of its assessed valuation.

James M. Calnan, City Arbitrator. Notice. In view' of the great number of let ters 1 am receiving daily from all sec tions of the state, inquiring if the Georgia Mutual fire insurance com panies doing business in this state have any deposits of securities with the state treasurer or any capital or assets, I am convinced that there is a general misapprehension on the part of the people of Georgia as to just what requirements are imposed by the state upon this class of fire insurance companies. In order therefore that the public may be officially informed on this point, I desire to state that the class of fire insurance companies engaged in business in this state known as the Georgia mutuals, all of which have but recently been organized under charters granted by the legislature to do a fire insurance business on the mutual plan are not required to have capital assets, or a deposit with the state treasurer for the protection of their policy holders. It will thus be seen that these companies must neces sarily depend entirely upon premiums or assessments collected from their policy holders or members for funds with which to pay losses. These companies having complied with the provisions of their charter granted by the legislature, it is made uiy duty to licence said companies to do a mutual fire insurance business in this state, winch I have done.
