A Chicago woman, whom the lan

what she ought to have known before

she will have some several thousand

Governor Atkinson's suggesiloa is that
the unlisted men of the throe regi
ment* he allowed to choose whether
they will remain or not. There la a*-
try rcasoti to believe that two-thirds
of Ihetn would return to ihalr homes, i
Those who remain emild he then ,

might b* honorably discharged. We
would thus have a single regiment of
soldiers who were entirely satisfied
and whom no stronger ties claimed at
Governor Atkinson has offered an
excellent solution of a difficult prob
lem. It Is one that would carry glad
neftg to the hearts, not only of the
hoys In camp, but to the brart-htingry :
parents and friends many of them j
right here in Augusta who have |
waited long enough for Johnny to
come marching home.
We believe that Augusta Is about to
enter upon a period of unprecedented
progress and prosperity. A large
measure of It, even with natural con
ditions most favorable, will depend up-
on the wisdom of council. We need
business men to sit around the muni
cipal cabinet board—men who are fa
miliar wilh practical dally affairs, men
of Aperience and executive ability.
No city In the south can boast a lar
ger number of young business men
who possess such qualities. There
are many whom wo might mention and
ihetr names are synonymous with suc
cais In the business world. Those aro
•he men who should he elected to
council In December. The great dif
ficulty Is that men of that character
do not aspire to the position. They
feel that their entire time should be
devoted to their own business. In
this they are mistaken. There aro
duties of citizenship which should be
discharged, and the more able the citi
zen the more Imperative Is the duty.
The entire community has a claim up
on such men, and they should not at
tempt to evade It. There will be no
difficulty la electing such men to
council if they will only permit the use
of their mimes, and It is their patriot
ic duty to do so. We cannot afford to
jeopardize the interests of the city of
Augusta Just as the future opens so
promisingly before us by sending to
council any but the best men in Au
gusta, and we voice the sentiment of
the whole city when we call upon
such men to take up this high obliga
tion of citizeuahip. .... Cl
