The announcement that Gove
nor Hugh M. Dorsey is giving se
rious consideration to his well-
known inclination not to permit
the use of his name as his own
successor has very promptly elic
ited expressions from all parts of
the state emphatically protesting
against his giving even a thought
to such a course.
It is a fact that a governor of
Georgia who depends upon the
income from his office comes out
at the end of his term a poorer
man, so far as money is concern
ed, than he was when he went in.
The salary of governor is barely
enough to meet the actual neces
sary living expenses of the man
receiving it, and when the extra
incidental demands that are levi
ed upon a governor are taken
into consideration, every day in
the governorship entails a meas
ure of financial sacrifice.
That would not be material to a
governor of indipendent resour
ces, but Governor Dorsey is not
He takes the position that while
he is young and active, he can
return to the practice of his pro
fession and earn three or possi
bly four times what he is receiv
ing from the state in the govern
orship; and he believes he owes it
to his family to at least give se
rious consideration to the wisdom
of taking such a step at the end of
his first term.
That there is much to be said in
favor of that position will admit
of no controversy.
Yet, all things considered, there
is infinitely more to be said in op
position to it.
First of all, Georgia needs Gov
ernor Dorsey’s service for anoth
And we believe that there is an
obligation on his part to remain
where he is for another term.
It has been many a year since
any governor of Georgia has been
tendered a second term without
even a suggestion of opposition;
yet so splendid has been Gove-
nor Dorsey’s record that every
body concedes that a second term
in the governorship waits upon
his mere statement that he will
Furthermore, Georgia is con
fronted with enough political con
fusion and turmoil over the sena
torial contest, which in itself will
give the state about as much po
litical excitement as it can handily
take of in a hot summer’s cam
To open up another Pandora’s
by precipitatinganother contest in
a fight for the governorship would
be to put a greater burden upon
the state than its people should be
called upon at this time to bear.
The verdict will be universal
that Governor Dorsey should de
fer to the popular wish and re
main for another term right

the whole state.—Atlanta Consti
THE SUBMARINE RAID.
“Monday’s reports of German
U-boat raids on American shipping
just off our own shores are in
tended to throw our people into a
state of panic—but the Huns don’t
know us!” says the Atlanta Con
There is nothing to be gained
in trying to minimize the serious
ness of such a daring exploit on
the Hun’s part; but it will by no
means give rise to pessimism.
It will have just the opposite
Of course, the enemy’s funda
mental objective in this desperate
nautical venture is to disrupt the
morale of the American people, to
frighten them to an extent that
w'ill give rise to a demand that our
naval units—or most of them—
now in service in the eastern
Atlantic be brought home to pro
tect our own coast, and such a
shifting of our naval strength
would be followed by a great
naval movement on the part of
the enemy on the other side.
At all events, there is only one
duty ahead of the American peo
ple in this connection, and that is
to “sit steady,” keep cool, let
Washington alone and trust to the
wisdom and the ability of our
authorities to cope with any
situation that may arise.
Whatever the , game of the
kaiser may be he will be beaten at
it in this instance,-as he has in the
past in others.

Are There Any
Slackers in Taylor?
Hey! Hey!! Stop, look, listen
all ye, who in objecting to the
conscript act when it was first put
into operation said, with a frown
on your face and ire in your
speech: “Let’em come over here
(meaning the Germans), we’ll
show ’em,” be sure to read this:
“20 American Vessels Sunk by-
German Submarine off Jersey
Coast.”—Monday’s War Bulletin.
So they are here, now what are
you going to do about it? YOU!
Yes, we remember some of you
and we are going to keep our eye
on you. A man—a slacker to the
country that gives him freedom—

ROOM FOR ALL

Must Stop the Cause.
Governor Dorsey’s reply to the
Negro Welfare League last week
was indeed strong. He pointed
out to the negro race that it was
incumbent on them to stop the
heinous crimes which are being
committed on white women, and
when this is done the lynchings
will stop. Mob law is altogether
wrong, but just as long as negroes
persist in their brutal crimes lynch
law will prevail, for it inflames
the white race to such an extent
that violence is inevitable.—Tal-

A SLUGGISH LIVER
S, Child Labor
Washington, June 3.—The fed
eral child labor law of 1916 for
bidding interstate shipment of
products of child labor was today
declared unconstitutional and in
valid by the supreme court.
Injunctions restraining the
government from putting the
statute into effect and restraining
a Charlotte N. C., cotton mill from
discharging children employed by
it were sustained by the court.
Crashes Into Sour Bile Mak
ing You Sick and You
Lose a Dav’s Work.
Calomel salivates! It’s mercury.
Calomel acts like dynamite on a slug
gish liver. When calomel comes into
contact with sour bile it crashes into
it, causing cramping and nausea.
If you are bilious, headachy, con
stipated and all knocked out, just go
to your druggist and get a
bottle of Dodson’s Lier Tone, which
is a harmless vegetable substitute for
dangerous calomel. Take a spoonful
and if it doesn’t start your liver and
straighten you up better and quicker
than nasty calomel and without
making you sick, you just go back
and get your money.
If you take calomel today you’lt
tfe sick and nauseated tomorrow; be
sides it may salivate you, while if
you take Dodson’s Liver Tone yon
will wake up feeling great, full of
ambition and ready for work or play.
It’s harmless, pleasant and safe to
give to children; they like it.
