IS SI SIS Sill IIS Mor Says a Fine Hotel Will in Built Ml NOI VERIFIED No One Who is Vested With Aun thority to Talk Will Do So. The Timbs-Call haa it from &and au thentic source that instead of wanting to purobaae the Cumberland Island ho tel property, the Southern railway will invest at St,.Simon, if a suitable hotel site ran be purchased. Some davs ago s rumor was current in At lanta that the big road was anxious to get a resort, and it was thought that Cumberland was the desired spot, but an invesiigation disclosed tbe fact that St, Simon is the place. At the sale of tbe Cumberland prop erty acme days ago, she Southern had no representative present, and the fact that the hotel property brought only SIO,OOO, is proof positive that tbe Siu’hern managers had tbeir eyes on something else. The opening of St. Simou again and a god r-i.I end hack of it, mentis that it would become the most popular re J sort on tbe South A‘ iantio coast. HON. C. O. HOUSTON COMING.
