Taylor, state Inspector, has commls-
jsioned twenty inspectors at a salary
of $150 per month and expenses and
: sent them out over the state to check
; up the various tax levies to deter-
j mine where the levies are excessive
| and unconstitutional. The taxing
! boards will not be asked to correct

tion limits the various levies as fol-
lows: County, 8 mills, plus 1 for

school district, 5 mills; by vote of
people, 10 mills more can be voted
in school districts, and not exceed-
ing 5 per cenit of total valuation of
either county or city, or school dis-
trict for public buildings.

"Lord Beresford,'' whose right name
Is La Salle, is a notorious English
swindler. He is well known through-
out the United States, having operat-
ed in almost all of the principal ctt-

Rome, Ga., in the spring of 1891,
when he forged a bogus check on a
London bank for $1000.
It was honored by Hamilton & Co.,

The case was appealed to the su-

released on a $5,000 bond. He then
opened a brokerage business in
Rome, which he operated until a
week before the supreme court con-

many friends by his smooth tongue,
and even had the president of a na-

on July 4, 1891, by request of the
Georgia authorities and finally turned
over to them on September 21, 1892,
being held a prisoner in the Tombs

the convict camp at Kramer, Ga., in
January, 1894; recaptured a few days
later and returned there. In July
1895, an effort was made to have
him pardoned. Governor Atkinson
refused to grant the application.

port, where be cut a wide swath and
had the matchmaking mothers striv-
