dusty brown, and- the thermometer
daneed.upward to 90 degrees in the
and anywhere from-WO to 900
degrees in the sun. Handkerchiefs
fluttered in the occasional zephers and
wiped the prespiration from the mar

all were careless, merry and happy*
bound th enjoy life ill spife Os the
weather, and they did. It would be
only occasionally that the disapprov

find its way into more than a thousand
throats at once. Everything was as

ARRIVAL OP THE GOVERNOR.
As train time drew near the crowd
moved towards the depot, to wait in
anticipation the arrival of Gov. Col
quitt, escorted by the crack company
of the State, the Gate City Guards.
Detachments of the Rome, Light
Guards and Cherokee Artillery, Hie
brass band, and-!t coiAmihee 'of citi
zens were drawn up on the platform
to receive otir distinguished guests.
As the train /drew up the immense
crowd were all agog with
curiosity. The Governor descended,
from the coach and was conducted to
a carriage, where, in company with
Adjutant-General Baird, he was driv
en to the Central Hotel/ esCbrtdd by
Colonels J. R. Towers, and D r S. Prin
tup. After completing his toilet, the
Governor and party repaired imme
diately to the camp groyuij, whore they
were received by Col. C. W. Ander
son and st tiff.
THE PARADE GROUND.
The numerous- arrivals Os t arriagej
and buggies kept huge clouds of dust
continually hovering over fhc roads
leading to the camp, all the forenoon.
Fully five thousand spectators were
grouped under the shadoof the trees
on the outskirts of the parade ground.
The ladies, ijtegs oqt in nin»W and
gave an attraction and beauty to the
scene worthy the beauty of an artist,
as they laughed and chatted iu knots
and circles, and looked Upon the open
ing proceedings with eager interest.
The camp and its surroundings pre
sented a magnificent scene of peace
and war blended in one harmonious

Twenty-eight members of this ex

dressed in their stylish fatigue uni

fieen looked for with interest, and their
iippearance in the procession to-mor

following is the roll of the members

The price the hacks arc charging
for conveying passengers to the camp
iis outrageous. The -distance is but
three-fourths of a mile,at the out side,
and twenty-live cents for a single
passenger each way is exhorbitant.
This very thing makes many- stay
away- from the drills and parades who
would otherwise conic if the hack
fare was tea cents each way. Twenty
five cents is not too high for a car
riage or phieton, if a man owns a
bank or has r;iilroad stock or who is
an editor, but fell- the average citizen
to pay it is too much and should not
be paid for an old rattle-bang hack.
Hire a phieton every time if you have
to pay a quarter.
We regret to learn that the Green

companies may possibly leave this

is a probability o’s their remaining

every effort will be made to have them

Yesterday, after the review of the

citizens participated, at Col. Ander

The Gcrmuii Lust Night.
Quite a crowd participated in the
German last night, at Cohen’s Hall,
in the Empire block. The hall was
sufficiently crowded to make it pleas
ant, and every one present appeared
to enjoy i,t. The ladies were dressed
elaborately and the gentlemen in uni
form, made a scene lovely to behold.
The German of last night will ever be
remembered with pleasure by all who
were present and with regret by those
who were absent.
A Little Odd.
A majority of the military in camps
considered it a little odd for Gov. Col
quitt, commander-in-chief of the mili
tia, to review the troops in a civilian’s
dress. When he came here, he laid
aside bis civil authority and assumed
the soldierly position of commander
in-chief, and he and his staff should
have been uniformed. This was the
only thing that marred the perfection
of the review; otherwise it was the
grandest display ever seen in Georgia.

limits more people than have ever be

hour last night wagons were still com
ing into the city. To-day Rome cele
brates the 101th anniversary of Amer
ican Independence, and in such a man
ner as has never been equalled in
Georgia. Let our citizens do every
thing in their power to make (he day
pleasant and one to be remembered
only with pleasure by every stranger
in the city.

seeni the end of it. There has been a
great decline of prices, and it is wor
th)' of notice that the decline has led
to but little commercial disaster,
which shows strength. The fail

been to concerns that were
engaged in speculation, cr relying
upon speculative prices. Where prices
have been propped up by business de
vices there has been disaster, “and
more may be perhaps follow before all
the mischief done can be repaired.”
As the speculative attempts arc not
without a basis, sound business has
been maintained where speculation
has failed. Late returns show a large
volume of business with a very fair
increase. The words within quota
