STEALING FROM GRAVES—Some Complaint About the Taking of Vases, &c., From the Cemetery.
Quite a number of complaints have been heard lately from citizens who have relatives buried in Oak Grove cemetery about thieves who go there and remove vases, &c., from the graves. Some people also take up plants by the roots. THE CALL is inclined to believe that some of the better class of people take the flowers while actual thieves steal the vases and other things from the graves. If the bad practice does not stop somebody is likely to get into serious trouble.

WARM TIMES EXPECTED ON THE BRUNSWICK BAR—A STEAMBOAT WAR IS NOW PROBABLY—Rumored That Two Tow Steamers Coming—GENERALLY THOUGHT TO BE TRUE—A Brunswickian Interested and is Ready to Put up Bit Money.
Opposition on the Brunswick bar seems to be
contagious. No sooner had the pilots split than rumors were flying of a
probably opposition to the towing combination. A CALL reporter started out his
morning to ascertain whether or not there was any truth in the rumors and from
what was learned it seems to be so. A prominent and wealthy Brunswick
businessman is at the head of the movement and he told the CALL man that
opposition was almost a sure thing. He further said he was ready to put up a
large amount and that other than local men were interested.
