No man can legally register whose
taxes have not been paid up to 1898.
The tax collector may or may not re
quire proof of this fact.
On S?ptemb»r 15, the tax collector is
required to file with the county regis
trars an accurate list of voters who
have registered, arranged alphabeti
cally by districts, showing age, race,
occupation and residence.
Ou July 1, the tax collector, ordinary
and clerk of court are required to file

Superior Court Judge every’ 2 yean;
(in February 1898 should have been ap

intelligent citizens as registrars to hold
office 2 years. Judge has power to
remove any registrar at will—but hk
MUST N/I APPOINT ALL FROM THE SAME
party. If such fact can be shown at
any lime the aw requires the judge to

bi-partisan board. (This is an impor

the board of registrars in his county
has at one populist member.)
On >ept. 20, registrars are required
to meet and compare the lists of those
registered and those disqualified and
then mai:e up a list to be known as

have lue power to put on or takeoff

Chairmen can do valuable service by
having an examining committee who
will regularly inspect the lists as they
are being made up by the tax collector
and also when in the hands of regis
trars, attending all of said meetings,
which By Law are public (see acts 1894
Registration* Law also Code Vol, 1, 32
to 65). This committee can prevent
illegal registration as well as illegally
removing names from the lists.
Every Populist should remember that
at each precinct a justice of the peace
is required also at least two free hold
ers (men who own land in their own
name) no man can be a manager who
cannot read nor write (see Code Vol. 1.)
A Word to County Chairmen.
Since the campaign opened there has
been some complaint and confusion
because some county chairmen have
taken it into their heads to revise the
work of th ! s headquarters, Some want
the speakers at a different date and
others want the meetings at different
points from those advertised.
Now friends, this chairman has been
accused, by at least one Populist paper,
of beirg a novice and getting things
confused, The State Executive Com
mittee, by a resolution adopted at its
last meeting, made each county chair
man a member of the state campaign
committee. It is jour duty, as inch,
to pull with us instead of pulling the
The tchedules and dates for speakers
are made up with the calls from’all
sections, a map of tho state and the
schedules of all the railroads in the
state before us, and we try in every
instance to arrange as we think best
for the general good of the cause.
It is to be supposed that wc are in a
better position to judge of these mat
ters than a man who is only looking
after the interests of his own county.
We furnish each speaker with a
schedule of his route and if some coun
ty chairman should succeed in pulling
him 15 or 20 miles off the route laid
out for him it would cause confusion
worse confounded and one half the ap
pointments would not be reached.
No, comrades it won’t work. I am
not a novice, and I am doing the best I
can with the resources at my command,
but if any of you think you can do bet
ter I am ready and anxious to swap
placas with you.

The Economist Proud.
The Economist has weathered the
storms and helped fight the battles of
Populism for over five years. It feels
that it has added much to the strength
of our cause and aided largely in estab
lishing for Jackson county the reputa
tion of being one of the banner Popu
list counties of Georgia. The Econo
mist has had the support and eneour
a r 3 re ent of its party—a party compos
ed of men who have been as true and
dto a cauo r they believed and
felt to he right as any body of men who
ever espoused a righteous one. Their
loyalty to principle, their determina
tion and zeal enabled them to attack
the fortifications of democracy, which
were thought by tho leaders of that
party to be impregnable, with their
modern machinations ana disgraceful
and uncivibzed implements of warfare.
Tney silenced every gun and marched
victoriously into the possession, of tha
land which had been unjustly denied
them two years previously through
technicalities that made honorable men
blush and caused brave men to rejoice
at our final triumph. The Economist
is proud to be the organ of a party with
such a noble and brave following. It
delights in espousing the cause of men
who are fighting for princip es that'
tuey hold so sacred they date to stand
by them under all circumstances and
make sacrifices for their triumph.
There are few Populists in the State
but have made these sacrifices and
made them cheerfully. There arc few
who will fail to make th: m still and
feel the better bv doing so. Then 'talk
about Populists faltering or deserting a
cause they know to be just and right?
A cause for which they have suffered
and endured so much? No, never!
Brave men always stand by their flag
and never forsake it; and with the
thousands of such men who have pled
ged themselves to this cause of human
ity in Georgia, thousands more will be
added, and no power can impede its
progress or prevent its triumph.
Then sustain your manhood, reeog
nize your strength, never give up, rally
around our flag, unfurl its banners to
the skies and proclaim to the world we
were born to be free and by the eternal
will bo free. (
The Economist is in the fight with a
determination that knows no defeat,
and has little patience with the man
who wavers or would retreat an inch
before the enemy or favor capitulation
Beal Populists are not made of such
stuff, and thank God there is little, of
such material in its army in Georgia.
Stand by your colors, catch the inspi
ration that ccmes to those who are
true to principles who work for them
and are not ashamed to own and defend
them under the fiercest fire.
Every man to his pest and victory is
sure. You can breathe it and you can
se* it. Its coming. The other fellow
knows it and is wilting. You know it
and it encourages and strengthens you
for the conflict. —Jackson Economist.

THE PEOPLE’S PARTY PAPER: ATLANTA, GEOIUSIA: FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1898.
MORE CAMPAIGN ROT.
Democratic Chairman Swelled Up With
The democrats are counting on great
results in October—claiming the earth
and all therein. Chairman Dußignon,
the corporation gold bug lawyer at
their head feels his importance and
takes every opportunity to assure
democrats of his bigness. How consis
tent democracy is in Georgia when the
ring leaders cry aloud from the house
tops for free silver, then go into the
legislature defeat an anH-gold option
law and follow it up by putting the
mogul gold bug of the state at the helm
Os course, any man with a grain of
sense can see that this move was made
to pacify and retain the gold wing of
the party. Democracy in Georgia will
de anything from hugging an 18 year
old negro in Augusta until after he
votes for the ticket up to changing the
complexion of the management of the
party from silver to gold.
Even a fool would be too wise to
charge Georgia’s democracy with con
sistency —such a crime as consistency
is unknown to the party. Here is the
view of the Savannah Morning News
of the situation:
“There seems to be but little neces
sity for the Democratic party making
a very hard fight against the Populists
this year, except for the honor of bury
ing the Third party under a majority
that will revive recollections of the
old-time Democratic vote of the state,
and make Georgia second only to Texas,
the state of 100,000 majorities
Chairman dußignon has been keep
ing pretty good track of the movements
of the Populists since they put out
“Pop” Eogan for Governor. The
movements have been so few and un
important that it has not been a very
difficult matter to do this. A campaign
so devoid of life has probably never
been seen before in any party or any
state. Everywhere the Thirty party
ites who have not yet returned to the
Democratic party realize that there is
not a scintilla of a show of success and
they are accordingly determined to
waste no energy in fighting for a hope
less cause and a defeated candidate.
“It will bo surprising if the Populists
do not practically abandon the field
before election day approaches,” said
Chairman dußignon yesterday. "It is
certainly a question whether they will
keep up headquarters at Atlanta, or
elsewhere, throughout the campaign.
A 1 the advices coming to me show that
Col. Candler lies practically no opposi
tion. It is a grand opportunity for the
Democratic party to roll up a majority
that will tell on the country at large,
showing that the party here is in mag
nificent shape and united for the com
ing struggles. Our campaign will open
up next month. Every effort will be
made to create that amount of interest
wiLijcu. Io wcuusfiurj,j uuucr oucu wircuui*
stances, to bring out a full vote. Per
sonally I think we have seen the last cf
the Fopulis. pu.riy as a factor of any
great moment in state politics. In some
counties it will continue perhaps for
some time to control local affairs, but
even in them its life promises to be
short. It will soon be numbered
among tho dead parties of the past.”
• Hogan at Greensboro.
Greensboro, Aug. s—According to
agreement, the Peoples Party of Greene
county met in mass meeting today for
two purp ;ses, one for the nomination
of a county ticket and the other to hear
a speech frcm our nominee for govern
or, Hon. J. R. Hogan.
By 9 o’clock the old town was full of
people, not only from Greene, but from
other counties around.
A delegation composed of six from
each militia district, met at 9:30 and
proceeded to select a ticket with the
following result, viz. For senator from
this senaioiial district, Hou R. E.
Davison; Representative. L. J. Bos
well and Wm, H. Freeman, and the
same county officers.
This is only a change in Representa
tive, Hon. Davison having represented
this county two terms in the lower
house and having given his people
such satisfaction he was selected to go
up higher, and as Col. Boswell had
only served one term and he too had
been such a faithful representative, he
was renominated. Mr. Wm. H. Free
man, the other nominee for represen
tative is comparatively a young man
of sterling worth and integrity, that
his people have called him to leave the
saw mill and the plow and to try his
hand -at perfecting the laws of the
land that we may have good and whole
some laws over us.
The present county officers were
endorsed for another term and with
flattering opportunities for re-election.
After the selecting of the committee
and the endorsement oy mass meeting,
tho doors of the court house were
thrown wide open for the public and a
whoop at the window announced the
Hon. J. R. Hogan io speak. It brought
the crowds in and there were some who
were turned away because of the over
Judge J. If. McWhorter in a few well
chcseu remarks introduced the next
governor. Time and space forbids that
I should even attempt to give his
speech—but to say that it was good,
cheering and uplifting, only puts its
mildly. No abuse for any one but just
a speech that is calculated to do
gcoi. We are glad to state that the
party in Greene has made friends and
are still making friends, and its record
for two years is such that will make
more friends in future. We expect to
give Hon. J. R. Hogan a good majority
for governor and to get good men in
Stir up you of the other counties and

Editor People’s Party Paper.
I want to enter my protest against
this vacillating and waiting process;
this halting between two opinions
about whether our national conven
tion shall be held Sept. sth or not.
Even a bad policy firmly adhered to
and executed with energy end honesty
is far better than a goon one allowed
to drift along without any definite pur
pose in view, as if we were waiting to
see what weald happen or to see if
the Lord would not take pity on us
and kill off the Butlerites. Let us
have the convention and a national
ticket if Georgia is the only state there.
Give us something to point the people
to. There are thousands in the old
parties who want relief and want to
help reform abuses, but they have no
hopes in us as long as Butlerism rules.
They will not join us as long as oui*
leaders hold out the idea that they
must still vote for old party men to re
lieve the country, Let us have a clean
clear cut fight for reform without the
help of Butlerism.
Let us be honest with people. The
Populist who would use money or
whiskey to get votes ought to be
branded as a traitor to the cause and
every Populist should ref use to vote for
him. S. J. McKnight.
•To the Front Comrades.
Editor People’s Party Paper :
The temperature of my populistic
enthusiasm has not been “below 90 in
the shade” for the last five yaws and
has reached tho 100 mark frequently.
I am persuaded that the cries and
groans of an outraged people will
eventually reach the ears of an allwise
Providence. Every Populist in Geor
gia is looking forward with fond antic
ipation to the day when the enemies of
good government will be relegated to
the rear, and the true Jeffersonian
democrats (the Populists) will be put
in charge of the old ship of state. God
speed the day!
Comrades, be patient, the time of
your delivery is near at hand. The
promise is to the faithful. Let every
patriotic Populist in the grand old state
from the democratic corruptionists
who are suexing the life blood of the
people by an unprecedental high rate
of taxation. Buckle on your armor
and make a strong pull, a long pull
and a pull altogether, and then victory.

The door of health stands open to every
woman who will enter. All that she needs
is the key and a little knowledge. The
knowledge that she needs is concerning her
own nature, her own physical make-up and
the principal cause of ill-health iu women.
When a woman suffers from headaches
and pains in the back and sides, and burn
ing and dragging sensations and the weak
ness, nervousness and despondency that
are caused by diseases peculiar to her sex,
she cannot enjoy good general health. The
key to the door of health —the cure for all
disorders of this description—is Dr. Pierce s
Favorite Prescription. It is a medicine
specially devised for disorders of this na
ture and no other. It is the invention of
an eminent and skillful specialist, Dr. R. V.
Pierce, for thirty years chief consulting
physician to the invalids’ Hotel and Surgi
cal Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y. When a
woman writes to Dr. Pierce she consults
a physician who has practiced for thirty
years right in one place, and who was some
years ago honored by his own townspeople
bv an election to the National Congress.
He will answer letters from women free of
charge. All professional correspondence is
regarded as sacredly confidential.
“ For years I kept failing in health and getting
worse and more nervous all the time," writes
Mrs. Annie Dillan, of East Stroudsburg. Monroe
Co., Pa. “ I doctored with two different doctors
without relief. My system was run down and
mv nerves weak. I had ulcers of the uterus
which were so painful at times that I was afraid
thev must be cancers. I felt discouraged and did
not"get auv better until my nurse advised me to
write to Dr. Pierce. In May I commenced tak

I suffered for years from sexual weaknes*

neuresthenia, brain and nerve exhaustion. ]
was robbed, swindled and nearly killed bj
quacks, advertising doctors, medical institutes
etc. A brother clergyman told me he had sun
sered from the same troubles that I had, that
he was treated and cured at small expense by
an honest firm of manufacturing chemists, and
advised me to write to them : I did so; they
sent me a small book. I read it, followed the
advice therein given, and was permanently
cured for a few dollars.
I would advise every man that is suffering
from anv weakness or disease to write at once
to Lea, Wood & Co., Manufacturing Chemists,
Lowell, Mass., for a copy of their book entitled
“A Practical Treatise on Sexual Weakness,
Brain and Nerve Exhaustion.” It tells how ta
cure yourself privately at home at small ex
pense, and avoid being robbed by quacks and
swindlers. Bev. Charles C. Downing.
