No Use in Discussing War or Its Probability Yet. HE HAS NO UNUSUAL ORDERS, United States Will Aoespt tbs Verdiot of Its Officers—Fighting Wouldn’t Reach Inland. Atlanta, Feb. 25.—1n an interview here General Wesley Merritt says: “It is useless to discuss war or the proba bility of it, Nothing can be done until tbs investigation is completed. Kven then I do not see how there could be war; that is, if the investigation shows the Maine was blown up by one or more Spaniards without the cogni sance of Spain. The government could only demand an indemnity. Of course, I cannot venture toVajyivhat Spaiu would do the result would be. If war is to result the navy would be likely to hear of it first. “I can say, in the utmost frankness, that I am not bearing any unusual or ders, as has been suggested, and that there is absolutely no reason for any unusual oonoern over my visit.” It was stated to General Merritt that mauy persons believe that if the United States board of found that the Maine bad been b'own up by a mine or torpedo, Spain would inves tigate, and upon ao adverse finding tus matter would be referred to a third nation for a further investigation. “It is my belief," said General Mer ritt, “that tbp United States would ac cept the verdiot of Itk own officers wiMiout hesitation and would not con aider any report that the Spanish gov ernment might make. Of course, there might be arbitration on the ba sis of the finding of the United States naval offioers. This is said on the sup position that the board might find that the Maine bad been blown up. “In the event of war, I do not think that the fighting would reach inland. Our coast defense is ample. lam con fident that every fortification is in good condition and the Spanish ves sels would find it no easy task to get at any coast town.” RUMORS FROM ROME. Ssab Wright May boa Candidate For Con gross Rome, Ga., Feb. 25.—1 t is rumored here that Hon .

Of course there is nothing authentic in tbe printing of this ticket and it is un derstood that the gentlemen named have not ail consented to run. There is not the shadow of a doubt that a great many of the Floyd couoty populists are coming baok into tbe democratic party this fall and vote the democratic ticket. Many of tbe lead ing ones say that they will partici pate in tbe primaries and stand by the nominees. We sell and deliver gasolino. Tele phone I3IX. Old Bale of Cotton.

May or Mason thinks it would lie a calam ity, nod Chief Beach, who has a cozy retreat on St. Simon in case of danger, is enthusiastic for immediate hostili tie*. Clerk Bodet thinks war is pre ferable to uncertainty, John Lehman doesn’t care how things go. Treasurer Harvey hasn’t said a word on the sub ject, Assistant Treasurer Owens ia studying inland routes, and Ordinary Dart is ready for four years more of tbe excitement. —lt is interesting to watch the rush for the morning papers at Fleming* Waff’s and note how the opinions of the buyers are expressed in the papers which they call for. The man who wants war at any pries will have no paper but the New York Journal. The big headlines and the half-page pictures appeal to him with peculiar fascination. The man who is against war under any circumstances, buys the Herald, In the state papers, the same opinions are expressed by tbe purchase of the Constitution and tbe Savannah News respectively.

M, King, of Ellis, Young & Cos., informs Tub Timer that the cflutraot for the erection of the firm’s new Brunswick wharves has already been let, and that the work is already in progress.
