The Asylum Question.
Year after year our legislature has
been called upon to make appropria
tions for enlarging the institution
for the care of .the insane, the idiots,
inebriates and all that unfortunate
class who became the beneficiaries of
the charity of the State.
We learn that at this session an
appropriation of $30,000 will bo
asked for the further enlargement of
the asylum at Milledgeville.
Anent this we learn that a bill
either has been or will be introduced
at the present session providing fur
the building of an entirely separate
institution, and that it will probably
provide for its location in this city.
We heartily second the motion. No
point in north or northeast Georgia
we opine can offer greater induce
ments in point of healthfulneta and
It may be urged that a separate
institution will involve the extra ex
pense of another set of officers be
sides the appropriations necessary
for the building. The answer to
this we think is simple and conclu
sive. A separate institution will
make possible the classification of
the patients. At Milledgeville we
have all the necessary arrangements,
strong buildings, barred windows,
etc , for the care of lunatics and in
sane persons, and the present over
crowded condition of that institution
is due to the necessity of putting
inebriates and idiots and other harm
less classes of patients within its
walls thus making it an unw eldy
aud unclassified house of refuge or
home for the unfortunate which ren
ders it impossible for tho officials to
properly care for aud treat their pa
tients Aside from the chances
which an independent institution
would give for classification aud bet
ter treatment, tho rivalry which
would certainly spring up and exist
botween the two would inevitably
result in tho better aud more eco

are sure the present officers of the in
stitution would hail it as a great relit f

late Dr. Green for many years the
efficient superintendent of the asy
lum was warmly in favor of some
While we are heartily in favor of

The Gibson Case
Some eminent judge is related to
have said that there were two uuac
countable things, the fancy of a wo
man and the verdict of a petit jury.
He was right, and the trial and ac
quittal of Gibson, ihe Macon mur
derer, is a case in point.
The facts of the case briefly stated
are about as follows:
Gibson was a man addicted to
strong drink, aud vvlieu under its
influence was quarrelsome aud dan
gerous. His best friends shunned
him at such a time. On a Sunday
in November last he got drunk, and
about dark was standing in the
doorway of Ralston Hall. Two or
three of his friends came up and l.e
threatened to shoot them. They
dissuaded him, however, aud win e
standing tulkiug to him, a stranger
in the city, a man named (J leman
from New York came up, aud Gibson
threatened to shoot him The man
asked him not to do it, aud asked
the crowd all in to drink. At this
juncture Gibson fired aud the man
fell. He fired we believe twice more.
The unfortunate man was taken to
his room aud died in a few hours.
He did not even know Gibson’s
The case was fried once before, re
sulting in a mistrial. Last week
Gibson was again put on tria', and a
jury of twelve men sworn to do their
duty returned a verdict of not guilty.
The community was outraged.
The 18tate will be likewise when it
learns the facts. A more wanton,
unprovoked and outrageous murder
was never committed anywhere. That
of poor Port9r by the Texas assassin
is not more revolting. And yet a
Georgia jury say the man is not
guilty. The juries of this country
cinnotbe trusted. Here is a man,
or rather a monster, a red-handed
assassin turned loose upon a tremb
ling community, to go on in his mad
career, aud shoot down if he likes,
the solicitor who prosecuted him,
and the witnesses who testified
against him. We shall not be aston
ished for the news of the wreaking
of his vengeance upon them to come
at any moment.
God help us if this state of thing!
is to continue.
The Heated Term.
Georgia has not seen such a sum
mer as this has been in tweLiy
years. The weather has been ix
tremely hot, and in many portions of
the State drought has prevailed to
such an extent as to almost entirel>
destroy the growing crops. Espe
cially is this true in Middle and
Southwestern Georgia. In the tei ri
tory tributary to Augusta, the crons
will be almost a total failure, ami it
is estimated that Richmond county
alone has lost SIOO,OOO by the failure
of the watermelon crop which is gen
erally one of the largest sources of
revenue. Truly the hand of the
Lord has been laid heavily upon us.
The North Georgia Agricultural
Last week a bill was introduced
by Representative Yancey to appro
priate $20,000 to rebuild the North
Georgia Agricultural College at Dah
longa, unfortunately destroyed by
fire some months since.
We hope there will be no opposi
tion to the bill. The college has
done and is doing more for the youth
of North and North-East Georgia
than any similiar institution in the
State. It is a part of, and under the
management of the State University,
and affords the advantages of a first
class education at less cost than can
be obtained elsewhere. We are reli
ably informed that a young man can
defray his whole expenses, tuition and
all for one year for SIOO. We
do not believe this can bs done
anywhere else in the State. The law
authorizes th s college to license
teachers the same as the boards of
education, and at the late commence
ment over eighty young men were
thus licensed, who will teach through
out this section of the State, at least
during vacation, and many of them
There is no constitutional pro\is
ion in the way of the appropriation
While the constitution says that no
taxes shall bo assessed for school
purposes, except for “instructing
children in the elementary branches
of an English education” it declares
the General Assembly may from time
to time make such donations to the
university of Georgia as the condi
tion of the treasury will authorize.
As this college is a part of the uni
versity the appropriation can be
As we have said, we hope there
will be no opposition to the bill.
The State of Georgia cannot afford
to retrench in the direction of her
educational expenditures. No igno
rant people can be great or happy,
and every dollar expended in educa
ting the rising generation is bread
cast upon the waters that shall re
turn to her an hundred fold in the
increased intelligence prosperity and
happiness of her people.
Preparing for (lie Fray.
Col. Marcellus E. Thornton has is
sued a call for a convention of the in
dependents of Georgia to meet in At
lanta on the 25th, inst. This sounds
a little strange coming from a party
whose fundamental principle, as they
claim, is opposition to all conventions
or organizations of any bind. It
would seem that they have changed
their tactics and propose now to or
ganize, and to do so in ample time.
The independent press however
seem to see the ridiculous attitude
in which the call places them and
hasten to jump on the fence and in
dignantly repudiate Col. Thornton.
In this too they are recreant to their
principles. They say this is a free
country, and every man has a right
to do as ho pleases, and this attempt
to bulldoze a brilliant and meritorious
young gentleman is as false to their
announced principles as it is unkind
to him. If Col, Thornton wants to
call a convention he has a perfect
right to do so, and this attempt to
frown down the unanimous Colonel
should be severely condemned.
We are no extremist. We believe
iu justice. The man or the jour
nal who would wantonly preju
dice any man however humble iu the
eyes of his fellows, is unworthy to
direct public opinion or to attempt
to enlighten the masses.

[Editorial Correspondence Eagle.]
Atlanta, July 17cb, 1879.
Legislation is dragging its slow,
weary, heated, length along. It iias
been two weeks yesterday since the
speaker’s gavel rang “come to order’’
on the marble top of his elevated
stand, and while there has been a
large amojmt of hard work gotten
through with, it is not patent to the
outsider. Most of the first work ot
a session is.done in committees. The
session is hours a day, but
the balance of.the jime is full of more
arduous that performed
during the session proper.
It would be an utter impossibilitv
in the space which you can devote to
this letter to give anything like a full
synopsis of the business which has
been introduced. Perhaps seven
tenths of the matter so far introduced
has been local and special bills. The
constitutional convention desired to
abridge this as much as possible, but
I believe there is more of it this ses
sion than I have ever known.
The only matter of much general
interest so far disposed of is the ques
tion of the abolition of the agricultu
ral bureau. On last Tuesday, after a
week of skirmishing, a test vote was
had upon the matter in the House,
the bill to abolish it being upon its
second reading, and the committee
having recommended that it pass.
The House refused to agree to the
report of tho committee by a vote of
86 to 62, and the bill was lost. So
the bureau is safe for another two
years at least.
The wild land committee have sub
mitted their report, and it has been
ordered printed together with the
evidence. It will probably be out
to-morrow or Saturday. There has
been a wide-spread, and I think pre
mature discussion of the report and
its recommendations. Tho matter is
pending before the legislature. There
is a majority and minority report,
there are some very pointed state
ments reflecting upon the character
of some gentlemen, and I do not
think there should be any effort to
prejudice the legislature or the peo
ple upon the question before the
publication of tlio evidence and the
fall and free discussion which will
I think it a forgone conclusion
that the geological bureau will, to
use a slang phrase, “go up.” Li wil !
require a special appropriation, and*
to get this requires a constitutional
majority, which is 88 votes. I do
not believe there are this many in
tho house who favor it. However,
I am not much of a prophet, and
cannot say positively.
Col. Price is here working like a
beaver for the North Georgia Col
lege. Ido hope the appropriation
wdl be made to rebuild it. It is a
great institution, has done and is
doing much good, and ought to be
aided in this its hour of need. Mil
ledgeville would like to have it re
moved there and has a delegation
here in her interest but Ido not
think it amounts to much.
There is some talk of tho Moffet
bell-punch, aud a dog law, but I do
not believe that either will pass.
This letter has been writ'en hur
riedly, and there are several matters
I should like to speak of but time
and space forbids. I will endeavor
to keep you fully posted in tho fu
