The Wild Land Ucpoi t and Mat*
tefs Pertaining Thereto.
The report of the committee to in
vestigate the Wild Land Sales in this
State which was made to the General
Assembly soon after the opening of
the session and to which we briefly
alluded to lest week, has caused
much discussion. The majority re
port of the committee recommend
that the entire law and all sales and
transfers under it be wiped out, while
the minority report recommended
that the questions be left open for
settlement by the courts. We are
clearly of the opinion that the mi
nority and not the majority report
should be adopted. Georgia cannot
afford to pass such sweeping retroa -
tive legislation as this majority re
port demands. If a mistake has
been made we can only repeal, and
profit by the experience we have gain
Both reports acquitt the Comptrol
ler General of anj improper action in
the matter, but it was found that one
of the clerks in his office, Dr. A. J.
Bell, had been mixed up very suspi
ciously in the transactions Of the
other clerks, Messrs. W. A. Wright
and Itobt. U. Hardeman, the commit
tee made honorable mention as hav
ing been entirely free from any sus
picion of crookedness.
Since the reports have been made
however there have been other de
velopments which candor compels us
to say does not leave the Compfroher
in so enviable a position as he before
occupied. It seems that he thought
the vindication in the committee’s
report insufficient, wanted it more
broadly and forcibly put, and he
therefore prepared a paper conveying
what he thought should have been
the committee’s report. This was
presented to two members of the
committee who cheerfully signed it.
It was then placed in the hands of a
third party Mr. Hinton P. Wright,
who approached two other members
of the committee and asked them to
sign it. Upon their refusal to do so
he offered one of them $250 and a
suit of clothes, and the other SIOO,
for their signatures. They promptly
refused and reported the mattter to
the chairman of the committee. In
the mean time the two gentlemon
who had signed tho paper heard of
the attempt at bribery, and went at
once and took their names off. The
committee at once reported the mat
ter to the houso, and a resolution was
adopted raising a special committee
of thirteen to inquire into all the
facts connected with attempt at alle
ged bribery, and if necessary, to re
port articles of impeachment against
the Comptroller General. Up to this
writing the special committee have
It is but justice to the Comptroller
to say that both ho and Mr. Wright
deny that he had anything to do with
the bribery business. The Comp
troller says he knew nothing of it un
til ho read it in the papers, aud Mr.
Wiight swears that his oiler to the
two members of the comm’ttee was
without the Comptrollers knowledge
.So the matter now stands. We
have no opinion to express in tho
matter until those whose business it
is to ollicially inquire into the matter
shall have submitted their report,
and it has been acted upou. We
shall give our readers every develop
ment, and place our condemnation
where it belongs at the proper time.
The Late Colonel Jamison of
On last Friday the House of Rep
reseutatives hold memorial services
in respect to the memory of the late
Col. S. Y. Jamison, of Towns, and
Col. Itobt. A. Alston, DeKalb, both
of whom have passed from earth since
At twelve o’clock on that day the
committee appointed to draft resolu
tions expressive of the feelings of the
House, made their report. Some
touching and beautiful eulogies were
delivered. Hon. John E. Redwine,
of Hall, made the following remarks
in reference to the late Colonel Jam-
Mr. Speaker; I should do violence
to my feelings if I failed to say some
thing in memory of our deceased col
leagues. I cultivated most friendly
relations with those gentlemen for
several years. Memorial services are
alwavs solemn, but on this occasion
it strikes me these services are pecu
liarly so. It would seem, sir, that
nature as if in sympathy with the
sad hearts and tearful eyes of this as
sembly has spread her dark mantle
over Georgia’s capitol at the hour
appointed for these services. If we
might forget that we too are born to
die, her artillery is thundering it in
to our ears.
As many of the members were
much better acquainted with Colonel
Alston than Colonel Jamison, and as
my acquaintance with him was pro
bably better than that of any other
member, I propose to speak more
particularly of him. I have nothing
by which I can give a biography of
him. He was raised in the State of
Tennessee but came to Georgia in
his early boyhood, about the time
the Cherkee Indians wero removed
from this State and settled on the
beautiful and laughing Hiwasee in
the north of this State. He soon be
came a prominent man, and for forty
years was recognized as probably the
leading citizen north of the Blue
Bidge. He was a mau of stalwart
L-htne, well knit, and vigorous mind,
but while he possessed this stalwart
frame he was not free of that sen
tence which is passed on man. It is
true he passed his three-score years
and ten by several years. Yet he, too
had to fall. He was a member of the
legislature, after intervals, for sixteen
or eighteen years, alternating be
tween the house and senate. He
was a man of vigorous mind and al
ways inclined to be thoughtful and
prudent in his actions. His name
was frequently mentioned for con
gress from that portion, but circum
stances intervening and being a mod
est man, he never attained to that
eminence. He was as true a citizen
of Georgia as any she ever had. He
was the friend and counsellor of his
neighbors when in trouble, and he
always took the best course to ac
complish the objects he had in view.
I say this much, stating at the same
time, that the the details of his biog
raphy I have not at hand and could
not obtain since the passage of the

Grant, (Nutting. Jones & Cos.
Some years ago it will be remem
bered Georgia woke up one fine
morning to find that “honest Jack
Jones,’’ her trusted treasurer, was some
two or three hundred thousand dollars
behind. A flurry ensued, Jack was
put out, another treasurer was elec
ted, and the attorney general was or
dered tolcommence suit against J ones
and his securities for the amount.
After many of the law’s delays the
case was finally gotten to a jury
some two or three months since, who
after consuming a week in hearing
the testimony and listening to Ben Hill
and other famous counsel brought in a
verdict against Jones and his securities
for a little over $70,000. The trimming
process had reduced $300,000 to this
pitiful amount. The ink had hardly
gotten dry on the verdict before an
advertisement according to the stat
ute in such cases made and provided
announced that the defendants would
apply to the legislature for relief.
The bill was introduced a few days
Such is a fair specimen of our
nineteenth century “cheek.” Here
are three men who have had
their day in court, have had able
counsel, have produced all their wit
nesses, and when at last a 300,000
dollar claim is trimmed down into a
70,000 dollar judgment, they have
the unqualified cheek to come before
the legislature and ask to be relieved
of even this.
Poor Georgia, we hope there are
enough men in the legislature who
remember that they are her sons, to
see to it that this wrong is not done
her, If one man were to obtain
judgment against another, and the
defendant ask the legislature to re
lieve him, he would be scouted as a
fool. But Georgia, the poor old
State that has been plundered and
robbed under both republican and
democratic administrations is fair
game. She can stand it, and there are
journals who are advocating that she
shall be thus despoiled.
We have no desire to do Messrs.
Grant and Nutting, nor white haired
Jack Jones any injustice, but we fail
to see the equities involved in the
transaction. If there are any we
would not be of those to hamper jus
tice by unreasoning clamor, but we
do hope that the matter will be set
tled just as it would be between two
men. The State has all the rights
which an individual would have in
the premises and we hope to see the
legislature scrutinize this matter very

It is estimated there is not less than
one hundred, and quite possibly
more than this number, of cases in

added the horrorrs which starvation

[Editorial Correspondence Eagle j
Atlanta, Ga., July 23, 1879.
Since your last issue this center of
sensations has enjoyed a desert in
this line as it were in a rumor started
some days ago, that two members of
the wild land committee who had
en 8 a 8 0 d in investigating the wild
land department of the comptroller
general’s office, had been approached
by Mr. Hinton P. Wright and of
fered a bribe to sign a paper setting
forth that certain portions of the
testimony taken by said committee,
fully exonerating the comptroller
general from any complicity either
directly or indirectly in any fraudß
or illegal conduct in his department
had been omitted in the report of
said committee. This rumor as you
may imagine created quite a flutter.
For several days this was the subject
of discussion in political circles and
on tho street corners. On Monday
a special committee of thirteen was
appointed to investigate the
matter—the report of the wild land
committee as well as the charge* j
against Mr. Wright, and for the.
present there the matter rests. Co;us
ment will be reserved until the coi_\®
mittee report and all the facts come
Up to this time but few bills have
been passed, but the leading com
mittees have been at work, and in a
few days more the work of the pas
sage of the few and the slaughter of
the many will begin.
It looks almost incredible but is
nevertheless true that 785 bills have
been introduced in the house and
read the first time, and thero are
probably from 50 to 100 bills in the
hands of the committee on local and.
special bills which have not yet been
reported or read, so you see the leg
islative hopper is full and the mill
kept grinding for some time to come.
Of course the great majority of these
will be killed by adverse reports of
committees, but it will nevertheless
consume time to even read and con
sider them in committee.
Several important bjhs have been
introduced in the house this week,
among them one in which the people
of Hall county and indeed of the
whole up-country are deeply inter
ested. I allude to the bill to estab
lish a lunatic*, asylum within three
miles of Gainesville and to appropri
ate monoy for the same. It is clear
that additional accommo
dations must be provided for
this unfortunate class of persons as
the asylum at Milledgeville with its. 1
proposed enlargement will be inade-1
quate for that purpose, and besides!
in the present overcrowded condition
of that institution it is impossible for
the officers to properly classify these
unfortunates. The measure has many
strong friends both in and out of the
legislature and I have strong hopes
that it will become a law.
On yesterday evening the finance
committee after careful considera
tion and elaborate discussion of the
Moffett Bell Punch bill, agreed by a
decisive majority to report the same
back to the house with a recommen
dation that it do not pass. A mo
tion will doubtless be made to dis
agree to tho report of the committee,
but its action will, without doubt be
sustained by the house.
