"You don’t mean to nay Atlanta in as big aa Augusta”’ By the time the responsive laugh had subsided, the rlty attorney was on hi* feel to explain that the proposed change came under legislative enact ment and the matter was dropped. The City Printer Discussion. The city printer discussion was very Interesting. As elated. It wa* suggest ed by Mr pfc’nlsy that the official print- ; tng be let to the lowest responsible j hltldcr on a bond of $5,000 approved by ■ the finance committee. In the same J prragrapb Mr. ! Phinisy had It that other than official printing also be let ! by contract. Mr. Garrett made the point that the ■ proposition was Impracticable. His 1 jiolnt wss lhat Job printing could not j be estimated in advance —the amount of it. etc.—for an Intelligent bidding end that newspapers only could do offi cial printing and Job offices Job print ing. Mr. Phinlzy said his sole object was to put out at contract such printing as could be done by contract. The Mayor—‘T wish to say that the official printing is now done at a lower price to the city than It is worth. If you put out this position at contract you might, on the same principle, put out every office in the city at contract. The official printing is new done for SI,OOO per year. This includes all the official printing of the city and the beard of health. Including the registry list.” In answer to a question by Mr. Rob ertson, the mayor reiterated the work done as official business. Mr. Phiutzy—"Well, if it be found that the city can get done for SSOO work now done for SI,OOO, I say let us get It dene.” Mr. Castile—“l object to the pro posed amendment.” Further Discussion. Id answer to a question, Mr. Phin izy stated that his proposition did eway* with the elective office of city printer —that the newspapers, respon sible and bonded, should come in and bid to do the city printing, the con tract going to the lowest and best bid der. At Mr. Rice's request, the .aw as it stood was read. After some further discussion, the mayor expressed the opinion that the preposition was new matter and should be introduced as a separate or Ilk COU A *tt* THE AUGUSTA *f*s t «f k ML pK. m * r 2 \mm *S ENAPf *•* tmto wEm j I ||mhk She (MkNpfMiNti if tMtMP dPK-j# s * $ Nf f I Wfa*!*’* #sv # 1 i»* >%• *s**•p •##■- I MMfaflßfaMU Ml i % ' 11*441*1 tfIMM *%• m* j L*nti «sf# It* tik>i**&w*** tsnis?* v Tk " s * 1 I m Vkskity «k$ mm *•«» t* mm i I §»** (fafa $Hk *• &• i%# (MHH( (EmM t## i r. ,f TE# Sniff EtkHlitff AT#t ***** *»«*■"■ if mm j IMP*** Ifcit 1M pSMMfII IMM M Mr I TSMeMv in fncrmpi wwd tlfa rS#lr tr» I S MEMiE'Hi il* ■aunt *sks s# »#4l [••lad sst ck skjartkok, Tk*m tka k*»-1 ' SMMMMvI iSI(HH>f' | > mrw< rKltf'AC'f SEEfENR* I |m#si ttESM «• for *•£# H •*# •iilnifpf * I Tim r*if |kf i«i rmm rp ■ *S.«tS woHMf (Sr fflMflflEHl I Tin Masts WNt It ikf Srm4 ff I I4.MM ftr*' | Mr fkliUr' "Tor liHklul prrfarm | tk# Miif ' l tlfk to «t#tf fur (M kiov br t» till trrk ro«HI W 4n*# M j * Mil I so t«l ElilH# I# fJSffttUE* 1 iE«i killsZ* I “ TSt* nrapa> T|nß Is «m ! 1.5..

"It bas been my pleasure for the law four ear* to address tbe people who first look me by tbe hand nnd made tnr what lam lis placed In a rather embarrassing ponuion tonight. I <vua Invited to speak at a meeting In this eard tha* was held. It was said, for tbe purpose of holding n fair and honest election but I discovered that under the fair and honest election pur pose lurked tbe hideous face of selfish ness. "It 1* only necessary to look at th* personnel of the upholders of the fair election to see of whal It is composed The while primary U only a political dodge and you can't strike It out. What does th ■ white primary mean to j the people of the Fifth? There ate about 126 colored voter* In the ward. In a Black-Watson conteat you might squeeze in about 175. but you would have lo raise nigg rs mighty fast. These ptople, these Puritanic politi cians. say they want a wiilte primary —because they can't out-vote 125 ne groes? "They want to deprive men of ihelr ballot “ho have the prerogative un der the Constitution of the United Slate* to exerciae that right. Cow ardice takes no meaner form than when the oppressor crusher* the weak. They know that several hundred In the Fifth are not registered and there fore would not cdst their vole* in the prlmaty. "Didn’t Elliott endorse Mattison? (Cri-s of "Yes, res.") This move ment for a white primary i« purely to cripple the administration. They de sire lo cut off the power of one who ban been elected to off ice. Th'r£ rxuld cut off his arms and then gay, •You coward, why don’t yon hit hack? 1 "I favor Mattison because he started out a poor boy like myself and work ed hia way up. He has passed by trie. There can naught be staid against him. if this Is so, then why not support him? He i« not a party to a clique or ring.” After a sow more eulogies to Mr. Mattison. and some more raps at the primary, Mr. Picquett ended by say ing: "Do your duty like men. Give the poor negro a chance. Don’t lie caught like flies.’’ The Old War Horse. The next Hpnaker was Major Oul ledge, the "old war horse.” The crowd yelled long for him and after a hit the major came on the stand. He wore a broad smile, hut no coat. lie is a humorous speaker and the crowd like to hear his remarks. When the vio lent applause had died away the “old war horse” spoke. “I have been intro duced to you as the ’old war horse.’ but I think I am a Mattison war mule that will pull this thing through. (Much laughter.)

Mr. J. E. Carlledgc. 1 The last speaker at the meeting «** Mr. J. h. Cartledge of The Trib une. Mr. Cartledge said It was Important ■that the primary matter be underaUrod. He had heard and he supposed the oth ers had heard tha certain people were, going to support Rlltott because .Mat tison would not consent to the while primary. He said that the dirtiest elect'olls could be held in primaries, and that there were plenty of white men who would sell their voter as quick as ne groes. "The primary is the entering wedge of in perlallam," said he. “I deny that Mattison Is afraid to go Into a primary. We arc not refusing to go into a white primary because we are afraid of it, but liecause we would de fend tbe vote of the while man along with that of the negro. 1 have done all that I could do to bring about a clean election, hut the primary Is not the remedy for fraudulent ones. El liott’s record In eotmcll is enough to defeat him. anil Ilbalteve in Judging » i man by his record. Mattison Is the working man’s friend. We havtj tried Mr. Elliott asid now let ua try Mr, Mattison.” A Circular. At the meeting circulars were dis tributed, of width the following is a copy: Here is the record. "On December 4, 1893, a motion was voted on In council to tax every poor umrklngman three dollars to repi.ii the at reets. "The record shows that.— “ ‘Mr. Lynch moved that council en dorse and recommend a bill to the leg- Isiature authorizing Hie city to collect a street tax, just (he game ns the coun ties do. the proceeds to he devoted to the repairing of old and the building of new thoroughfares. The resolution was lost by a vote of Bio 4. The ayes were: Elliott, Cosgrove, Lynch, O. R. Lombard. The nays were: Ad ams, Rutherford, Young, Smith, Shee han.

He then proceeded, stating that Mr. Elliott showed that be wanted a pure election by wishing for a primary and that he should be supported for his ac tion. Mr. Tunkle had come from the Third word. They were too good down there to need elections, so had come ..p to see the fun In the Fifth. Down I in the Third all went Oouley’s way. A heavy weight had come out. but 'he 'next morning his excellency's paper - ] (he Chronicle- bad come out with such a whine lhat the heavy weight had crawled into his bole, taking the hole I with him (laughter and aprluuse). "So I hart to come up hern to see any fun or to hear good apeaknrs ” Messrs. Charles Plcquet end Abney were eo led for. hut were not present. Rev. Wm. Dunbar. Rev. William Dunbar caught the crowd at the outset, lie said someone told him there were three meetings In '.Vest End. One at church for God and two at the halls fer the devil and al though he wasn’t used to going to the devil’s meeting he came ihere. As far rs he could see there was on ly one issue. The Fifth ward was Populist and as long aa he could re member the Populists had been crying for fair elections and honest ballot. His opinions had undergone a change. Several years ago he was a strong nd vocate of the brother In black. “I now see that the greatest majority of their votes are for sale, as are also many wjiite votes.” When he first appeared nt the polls the people thought it was a shame for a preacher to get into such a mess. He pulled off his coat, and now he was glad to see lhat Hie best citizens are shoulder to shoulder with him for pure elections. "Even The Herald has turned over a new |paf and I's advocating fairness, hut I haven't had much Influence on the Chronicle. As for the Tribune, It was turning. Home men had been overheard crying that they would beat Elliott because the." had the money to do so. MatTi son does net mean to he unfair, but is afraid. If not, why don’t they submit to primary?

Tonight they got » band and paraded and dla played signa rending. “Down with the primary.” I say it la a disrespect to the citizen*, for It means ’down with white voters.' "Ah to (he three hundred citizens to lie debarred from voting, they make no effort to meet my committee and ar renge to allow thpse to vole. "Why not have a while primary?

If you knew that fifteen 01 twenty negroes voted out cue hun dred whites you would certainly he for it. There ate honest negroes, but they never vote, i'll tell you why. Shiftless negroes are brought out and vote the good negroes' names and when tlm good negro comes to the polls he is told that Im has voted. "I want clean elections. 1 would sooner be defeated than elected by the corrupt negro vote." After each of the speeches the band struck up the music and a rousing meeting was held. At the conclusion of the last speech "Dixie” was played and then tjic meet ing adjourned. GUILD OF ST. ANDREWS.
