Washington, Jan. 20.—The re-pablican members of the Wajs and Meaud Committee today de« cided to begin coneideration of the bill reducing war revenue taxes, and after"^ a conference attended by all of the repufolican members of the committee, Chairman Payne gavd out a statement saying:  ."The republican members of the Committee on Ways and Sieans met today and decided to have a hearing before the full committee on Monday the 27tb inst., on the question respecting the duty on tea and the war revenue taxes upon beer. There will be no further hearings."  The desire of the beer interests is to take oft 60 cents from the $1 60 per barrel oovr levied on beer, thus bringing the rate to $1, where it stood prior to the Spanish war. The total reduction in revenues on this item would be $24.000,000. The reduction on tea would aggregate about $8,000,000.  To Pay the School Teachers.

According to the arrangements made the Fourth Regiment will go into camp this year at some convenient point, which will mini« m<ze the cost of transportation. We call the attention of the Guards,to the matter, and suggest that tbey take the matter up at once aud make an effort to have the encampment at Tbomasville. Tbe fair grounds would be an ideal place. Tbe regiment could ^ be brought here about as cheaply as it oould^be to any Duint in this section. What sav the Guards?  The Plant System employes are getting on the rugged-edge. The read has changed its sybtem of paying off, as well as the date of payment. Hereafter thore will be no more pay trains, but every employe will be sent a check for his services, which will be cashed by the various agencies. So far this month the employe» here bave re« celved no pay and some of them are beginning to feel the pinch.  See notice of T. Geha & Bro., proprietor of tbe Oriental Bazaar.

The number of buildings destroyed were three; damage J, thirty-five The buildings destroyed were beyond the reach of the water works.  A fire alarm was sounded yesterday morning about 8 o'clock, but fortunately there was no fire, as the wind was blowing a gale and had a confl^giration started it would have been very hard to con trol. The ciause of the alarm, we understand, was a chokt^d up stove pipe in Cochran's barber shop, which filled the store with smoke.'  Willis G. Jackson, of Chicago was among yesterday's anivals at the Mitchell.  Mr. J. W.i Francis, of Cordelo, representing the Southern Oil Co., WM io town the other day.
