-Atlanta, til., July 7, 1887.|
IY> the Senate and Ilou-ie of Rcpresetd :tiv* s:
Through the medium of a special message I
wish to invito your attention to several matters
of public importance.
THE ATLANTA UNIVERSITY.
In transmitting the reports made bv the board
of visitors appointed to attend the examinations
of the University of Georgia and of the Atlanta
University your attend->u is respectfully ashed
to the following extract from the report in ref
ence to the Atlanta University:
"We feci it to be our duty to call the attention
of your Excellency to a fact in connection with
the Atlanta University which was a surprise to
us, and whicli we feel assured is not in accord
either with the policy and provisions of the
Legislature of the State or with the theory of
'‘We llnd in the Atlanta Uni
versify a number of white students of various
ages and both sexes, most of them having more
or less connection with the members of the
faculty or other ofiioers, ami one. at least, en
tirely unconnected with the officials. We men
tion these relations of the white students,
uot with the intention of suggesting that
there is any real difference between al
lowing the attendance of children of the faculty
and children of those other thau the faculty,
but in order that all the facts may lie known
We have ascertained by conference with the
members of the faculty of this Institution that
it is their avowed intention to receive all white
children who apply for admission into the
school, aud we interpret this, in connection with
certain publications of theirs, as a desire to
break down the existing harriers against the co
education of the two races. We desire to say
that we regard this practice as uot only intrins
ically wrong, but. as being, in this case,
an improper use of the money appro-
i (rioted by the State to this institution,
n every enactment which the legislature lias
made upon this subject since and including tin
year IBf4, as well as in the constitutional delega
tion of authority to make it. the appropriation
has been made for the benefit of the colored
race alone. Indi-od, the act of 1874, in terms de
votes the siuir of SB,OOO per annum solely to that
people, and the act isinthe nature of a contract
by which they receive the sum in lieu of other
moneys. It occurs to us that the admission of
white children to a participation in the benefits
of this appropriation, aside from the violation
of tho general policy of the State, is, in this
case, a misuse of public moneys.”
From this extract from the hoard’s report it
appears not only that white children are re
ceived as pupils at the Atlanta University, but
that the authorities of that institution avow
their determination to matriculate all white
ahildreu who may try for admission.
The sum of SB,OOO, annually atipropriated
under the act of March 8, 1874, to the Atlanta
University, is one-half of the interest on $243,-
000, which was the sum realised by the State
from the Agricultural Lund Scrip, under the act
of Congress of July 2, 1862. and the amending
act of April 14, 1804, "donating public lands to
the several States and Territories, which
may provide colleges for the bene
fit of agriculture aud the mechanic
ails.” This amount was at first an item in the
general appropriation bill, but afterward the
act of March 3, 1874, was passed annually
appropriating such sum to tho Atlanta Univer
sity. This siuu of SB,OOO thus appropriated is no
part of the interest derived from what is known
as the agricultural laud scrip. The whole of
that, fund was turned over to the State Univer
sity to be used in strict accordance with the act
of Congress; but in the spirit of perfect fairness
and of liberality to its colored population, the
State appropriates from the State treasury the
sum of *B,OOO annually for the education of the
There is an obligation upon the part of the
State to give to its colored population this sum
of money each year; but if no such legal obli
gation existed, the State. guided by an enlight
ened public policy, would continue such ap
propriation to cobired institutions of learning.
But the constitution of the State, in providing
for the establishment of a system or common
schools, expressly provides that they shall bo
free to all children of the State, but that sepa
rate schools shall be pri aided ft >r the white and
colored races. The General Assembly of the
State, iu nil its legislation upon the subject of
education, lias beeucareful to observe this pro
vision of the constitution. In fact, the people of
Georgia, in every form in which public opinion
can be expressed, have declared their unalter
able opposition to the co-education of the raoos,
and it must be considered as a pari of the set
tled policy of the State in reference to
the colored race. The co-education of
the races is opposed in the interest of the col
ored as well as of the white race. It tends to
the deplorable result of amalgamation so de
structive to both races. All races which have
achieved anything in this world liave been ho
mogeneous. lam in favor of the highest eleva
tion of the colored people of this State, of
which they are capable, but my first advice to
them for the elevation of their race, would l>e to
keep it separate and distinct. Georgia’s policy
upon this question is plainly expressed iu her
laws and constitution, and based upon the con
viction that the interest of both races demands
that the children of the tw> should be educated
apart; and she caimot abandon that policy or
permit anyone to ignore it upon any false prin
ciples of sociology or political economy. Eight
thousand dollars must continue to be devoted to
the education of the colored race, hut it is for
the General Assembly to determine how that
sum shall be appropriated. The c lored race in
Georgia is making most commendable progress
iu education, and the State government will ren
der every aid in its power to its colored citizens.
The solo question to he met is this: “How can
this annual appropriation of SB,(MM be used sous
to secure to the colored race the largest bene
fits!'” It has been suggested more than once
by the State's able Commissioner of Public
Schools that this SB,OOO should lie expended an
nually in maintaining a normal school for the
education of colored teachers; or the Legisla
ture might appropriate this sum if deemed ad
visable to someone of the well established col
ored institutions taught exclusively by colored
teachers, and presided over by colored Presi
dent and officers.
THE BOARD OK VIBITORS.
In this connection I ask the attention of the
Legislature to tho law under which asiieehil
Board of Visitors Is appointed for the State
University and for the Atlanta University, as
found iu ihe 1.2015 t section of the Code and in
the third section of the act of March 8, 1K74.
It will be observed that the duty of the board is
“to attend tho University examinations preced
ing the annual commencements.” ana by a
committee to “report to the Governor, with the
least possible delay, the character of said ex
amination.” Tins Is all they are authorized to
do. They have no authority to inquire into tho
police of these institutions, or their sanitary ar
rangements, or their financial condition, or
their curriculum of study, or anything elso
connected with them. They must, under the
statute, simply attend the examinations
nnd report their character. The board,
whose report accompanies this rne-ss igo, have
performed their duty efficiently, but they had to
go beyond their duty to note the use of an ob
noxious textbook in the State University and
the presence of while -indents at, the Atlanta
University. Their reports, when confined to the
subject specified in the statute, however able
they uuy I*, are pra -tic.tily worthless, and yet
the State pays for these reports more than half
as much ns is paid by the .State for the eduea•
Mon ui Dahluiiega. or Mllledgevillo, or Thomas
ville, of a large ntunlier of students for a full
scholastic year. I recommend that the law i-e
repealed, or that it lie amended so as groul ly to
enlarge tire powers of the hoard, and enable it
to Inquire into and report up m everything con
nected with tin*m which would hoof interest to
the representatives of the people. Iu m.v opin
ion such a visitation annually is imperatively
needed, and would result in great benefit to tho
•ALE OF THE SPARTANBURO AND ASHVILLK RAIL
Asa creditor of the Citizen’s Bank, which
failed several years ago, the State became the
owner of fifty-three bonds (SI,OOO each) of the
Asheville and Spartanburg railroad These
bonds were convertible into thestockof the
road, but were not secured by any mortgage or
other lien on the road. Individuals in this Sia’c
and in South Carolina wore (lie ladders also of a
still larger amount of thesu bond*. After tho
State m-qulred these Imnds. the Richmond nnd
Danville Railroad Company Isteamo the owner
of a majority of the entire amount of the out
standing bunds of the road, and having thus lie
conn* possessed of a controlling interest in tin'
stock, caused SBOO,OOO of preferred bonds to l>c
Gsued ti* pay for the completion of the road.
The issue of these preferred bond* caused the
'Kinds held by the (state and other jxirties to
greally depreciate In value, and the road has

Richmond anil Danville Railroad Company that

The proposed conference was held
in April last the Attorney General being
also present, at my request. Preliminary
negotiations were then had. which resulted in a
proposition, in May last, by the Richmond and

Company. All the minority bond-holders re
garded the proposed settlement at 45 per
eent. cash with decided favor, and promptly ac
cepted it. After conferring with the Attorney-
General and the Treasurer, I decided to accept
It also, it being manifestly to the Interest of the
State to make the settlement. 1 was compelled
to act promptly or lose the opportunity to
make this advantageous disposition of bonds
which had become comparatively value
Asa strict construction of the law relating to
the sale of public property (sc-* Code, section 04
to 68 inclusive) requires a public sale, uller due

cable in this instance, 1 request that a resolution
be passed approving and continuing my action
in this matter. I hope that this may be prompt
ly done, as the money for the bonds $23,800)
has been received and placed in the Treasury
of the State. It should have been stated that
the $53,000 of bonds so held by the State, were
purchased at a stile of assets of the Citizens'
Bank, several years ago, by direction of the
then Governor, at the sum of $25,000, and the
debt due by the bank to the State credited with
THE PETEK TKEZEVANT CLAIM.
By act of Congress, approved March 3, 1883,
the Secretary of the Treasury of the United
Mr ate was “authorized and empowered to pay
to the State of Georgia, or its lawfully author
ized agent, out of any money in the Treasury
not otherwise appropriated," the sum of $B5.
555. The First Comptroller of the Treasury
(Judge Lawrence) declined to pay this sum, but
'in lend it to be entered as a credit on the ac
count in the Treasury against Georgia for her
quota of the direct land tax of 1862. Since the
war large sums of money have been paid to
Georgia from the Treasury of the United States,
and in one instance, after a ruling
by the Comptroller (lion. A. G. Porter),
that Georgia was not liable for that direct
tax. Two bills have been introduced in the
House of Representatives to compel the pay
ment of this sum of $35,555 to Georgia, notwith
standing the decision or ruling of any officer of
the government, and have been reported upon
favorably by judiciary committees of that body,
but it is not ut all probable that any special bill
can be passed without some very object ionable
amendment. The only other remedy which the
State has is suit in tho Court of Claims, and I
recommend that the Governor lie authorized to
bring such suit, and for that purpose to employ
special council, as the Attorney General is under
no legal obligation to serve the State outside of
its limits. 'I tie right to sue will be barred on
March 3,183 ft.
The health of the prisoners in the
different convict camps has been for sfrue time
past remarkably good; but these convicts are
often received into the penitentiary in feeble
physical condition, resulting from their con
finement, pending their trials, in our county
jails. These jails in some of *.*ur counties are
without sufficient air or light, or comforts of
any kind, and are represented as unfit places in
which to coniine prisoners. When it is remem
bered that a vast majority of those
who are comined in our jails, in fact, all
of them until conviction, are in contem
plation of law innocent, it would seem to be a
commanding obligation of justice and humanity
that these jails should be not only habitable,
but comfortable places of confinement. It is
not unusual for prisoners to be kept in jail for
one or two years awaiting trial, tho result of
applications for new trial, and of appeals to the
Supreme Court, and then to be discharged at
last when acquitted of the offense of which they
are charged. They are released from jail on ac
quittal. or sent to the penitentiary, if convicted,
with shattered or enfeebled constitutions
I recommend tkai somo plan tie adopted to
remedy this evil. The Legislature might pro
vide for oil inspection of the jails and other
prisons of tnis State, and prescribe certain con
ditions as to light, ventilatiou, drainage, area,
etc., etc., which must lie complied with in the
construction of every jail in Georgia before it
can be accepted and used as a place for the con
finement of prisoners.
SIX PES CENT. COUPONS.
I desire to call the attentiou of the General
Assembly to the claim made by those who are.
or have been, holders of the 6 percent, bonds of
the State, maturing in August, 1886, and in
August, 1381, and being a part of tho
issue of $1,000,000 of bonds under the
net of February 211, 1856. These bonds
stipulate upon tneir face that they shall
bear interest at the rate of 6 per cent, per an
num, payable semi-annually until maturity.
But upon the llth and 15th series of said bonus,
maturing oa August 1, there is no coupon at
tached to represent the last six months interest
duo therein. The Treasurer has no authority
to pay this interest unless specially author
ized by the General Assembly, and tile holders
of these series of bonds, as these bonds matured,
have received payment of the principal, and
surrendered the bonds under protest. The
General Assembly Las heretofore, by resolution
approved Sept. 0, 1381. authorized the Treas
urer to pay the last six months interest upon
certain bonds of this class, which had matured
and been surrendered upon the payment of tho
principal alone. The amount of interest due is
comparatively small, but it is a just debt, and I
recommend that the Treasurer tie authorized to
pay it. This recommendation is made not upon
tlie ground that its non-payment will injure the
credit of Georgia, but upon the higher and bet
ter ground that the State should pay every hon
est debt which she owes.
THE STATE ROAD.
The leuse of the Western and Atlantic rail
road will not expire before the meeting of the
next Legislature, in November, 1888. It will
expire, however, so soon thereafter that a very
short time will be allowed for discussing plans
for future disposition of this most important
property of tho State; or for advertising for
propositions, or for selecting proper lessees,
should the Legislature decide upon another
lease. It seems to me. therefore, in every point
of view, essential that tile General Assembly, at
its present sitting, give to this grave matter the
fullest and most earnest consideration.
A PARDON COMMISSION.
There id no duty devolving upon the Execir
tive which is more important, more onerous,
and often times more embarrassing, than his
exercise of the power to grant pardons, re
prieves and commutations of the sentences of
convicts, wuich is conferred upon him by the
constitution. The labor which it involves to a
conscientious official is very great, while the
solicitude which it causes to an executive of or
dinary sensibilities is often most painful. Ju
dex!, the lab<r is so great that the Executive
cannot satisfactorily perform it without
neglecting other duties tielonging to his office.
A short while after the commencement of iny
term of office, there wvn> l>y actual count on
tile In the Executive Department more than 000
applications for pardons, reprieves or commuta
tions. The large majority of these were pre
sented to my predecessors. Some of the ap
plicants had served their terms and been dis
charged, some bad died, a few had escaped;
but after heductiug all these, several hundred
cases remained requiring the action of the
Executive, and to (hose others have been con
stantly added. The pardoning power is not
a prerogative of the Executive i* be
used carelessly or arbitrarily, but a dis
cretion to in* exercised calmly, cautiously,
conscientiously an<i courageously. Again, it is
a power which should be exercised as Boon iis it
is invoked. If a convict petitions for pardon
and Is entitled to it. lie should have it with all
practicable expedition. Every day of detention
in confinement is a grievous wrong to him. De
lay in considering a petition for pardon is as uu
justifiable, if It con tie avoided, as delay in de
ciding the issue presented uikju a writ or habeas
corpus. It is ltwlf a writ of liberty, and should
have a speedy hearing. Again, tin* pardoning
power cannot be delegated. It must be ex. r
eiewdby the Executive nliu>clf under the respon
sibility of his oath of office - upon bis con
viction of win* is right, after examiii itlon and
Investigation wliic'i be himself has made. The
K*eciitive, with the aid of efficient secretaries,
might possibly dispose of all the applications
for clemency illed fu hi* office. Bat, u> th* law
stands he cutmol avail himsfff even of this aid,
or of any old. so a* to relieve himself from the
necessity of investigation and decidon
in every case, and from the sense of personal
responsibility in all eases. it is impossible for
tin* Executive to attend properly t• * bis many
other duties, and dispose of all applioati* ns for
executive clemency, with the dispatch
which the applicants have a right to
demand, and at the same time witlr the
caution which the interests of the public re
outre. If these are the facts to-da), what may
they be u few years hence when this great Com
inonwealtb of (reorgia bus grown into an em
pire in the extent and multiplicity of its public
business? I have given t his subject much con
sideration. and lam convinced that it would lie
wise legislation to organic" a Commission of
Dardens now, by which I and my successors In
office might be relieved of a large sham f the
labor and responsibility which attach to the
pardoning power. A change of the con
stitution may l>e necessary, but It
occurs to me that such a commission
might be established without a change of the
fundamental law, if I lie act establishing it shall
place the ultima?** decision of application
for pardon, reprieve or commutation of sen
tence upon the Governor; and tliat it could be
so organized as to add very little to the expense
of the civil establishment. But, without enter
ing Into the detail* of luiy plan. I most earnestly
Itivoke the attention of the General As.-* inbly to
the subject as worthy of their immediate and
careful couaidcruUou. J. U. U<MUM>Jf a
THE MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY. JULY 8, 1887.
DE BAUSSET'S BALLOON.
Air-Ship With Which He Hopes to
Navigate to the Pole.
FY orn the Chicago Mail.
“My great air-ship, 'l)e Arctic Explorer,’
vill start to travel to do Nort’ Pole naix
June, poseeteef,” said Dr. Deßausset to a
reporter who called to see him about his
grand scheme of aerostration.
“He vill go 120 miles de hour in altitude
five miles above dc airt’, or dc leemcet of
respirable air. Look at him,” and the in
ventor pointed to a big chart on the wall,
where n long cylinder with conical ends
was painted in bright red. Along the side
was a faithful representation of a woodshed
roof gaudily painted blue. “Dat ees do
veeng of the aero-plane. Dat vill k>vp do
ship m one plane, also prevent him to fail to
dc ground. Along de uige of de veeng is a
gutter to catch dc rain and prevent him to
fail on de passengers. Below ees suspended
de cai', vieli vill contain 200 voyageurs,
fret and mail mattaire. As to de
dimansiongs of de air ship, he is (554 feed in
lungee, 144 feed in high and limit of lami
nated steel 1-44 of an eench teeck. Tree
force of do air vitin dees cylinder is exhowst
and do machine rise grandly into ze atmos
phere. To propel do ship in de car arc air
pumps of immangse power, driven by elec
tric dynamos. Dose dynamos are supplied
by electricity from Storage batteries, which
I nave invent. Eetees not like de storage
batteries vich are now in use. Ah, no. >So
soon as one is emptied I take anocler and
leave de first to recuperate. lie recover
hoes own electricity.”
"Why don’t you patent that?"
“Von ting at a time. Veil de air-ship is
complete dain it vill lie time to get out a
patent for dat.”
Tho doctor went on to explain, his little
dumpy form swelling with enthusiasm and
his black eyes Hashing, how the pump
would suck in the air from in front of tho
ship and expel it from the rear, thus realiz
ing tho “Kinie of tiio Ancient Mariner,”
where to the question of what mukes the
ship go on so fast, tho answer is returned:
“The air is cut away in trout mid driven
“But. will a cylinder of steel as thick as a
common pin, as long us the exposition
building, and as high as tho Pullman stand
the pressure of fifteen pounds to the square
inchasked the reporter.
“Ah! dat ees de groji’ queshong,” replied
the doctor, wagging his grey, pointed beard
and glaring over his eye-glasses while he
reached for a fresh cigarette.
“Unless it was braced strongly it could
not hold up its own weight.”
“Of course not,” declared M. Deßausset;
“but it vill be braced vit r-rings and arma
ture-; and stays.”
“Of what sort?”
“Oho! Dat ees nawn of your beesness,”
tartly rejoined the inventor.
“But,” he continued, “von de air is ex
houst one-fourth vill bo left to relieve tho
pressure of de air, vich at dees level is only
twelve pounds to de square eench. Dat
would leave nine pounds to be sustained on
every square eenoh.”
While the doctor was talking the reporter
did a little figuring, which showed that on
every square yam of steel left unbraced
thoro would be an air pressure of U,(if4
pounds, or nearly six tons. Mr. Deßausset
claims, however, that Fairbnirn’s formula
proves that the cylinder can stand the strain.
This formula reads: Let 1, equal the length,
D the diameter and T the thickness of tho
tube and P the collapsing pressure: then P
equals ‘J,*>72,000 into T over L D. This set
tles the question conclusively.
The cylinder is to be divided into air tight
compartments, so that if tho navigator
wants to point the ship’s nose upward to
ascend on an incline plane, the air is pumped
out of a forward compartment. If ho
wishes to descend on an incline plane all he
has to do is to puil tjie cork out of the com
partment and gracefully float earthward.
The doctor expects to have the machine
ready long before next June, and promised
the reporter a free ride, if the “head editor”
was willing and could spare him.
The programme announces in its own
straightforward style: “Tho starting point
will do from New York city, and the route
will Vie as follows: From New York to
Philadelphia, Washington, Toledo, Chicago,
Omaha, San Francisco, Yeddo, Canton,
Pekin, Constantinople, Turkey; Rome,
Italy; Paris, France; Berlin, Germany;
Copenhagen, Denmark: Stockholm, Swe
den, and St. Petersburg, Russia. From this
last city directly via Greenland to the
Arctic regions. The time table allows one
hour’s stop at each station.
The prospectus is adorned with a beauti
ful cut of this immense cylinder, floating in
the air directly over Black Jack’s buniboat,
while Chicago lies stretched out below.
Goose Island is plainly discernible and
away over in DuPage county, two vigor
ously erupting volcanoes are pegging away
for dear fife. The foothills of a wild and
mountainous country diversify the land
scape about Wicker Park, rising to grander
heights in Jefferson, while loft}’ peaks
crowned with everlasting snows rear aloft
their hoary heads where Commissioner
Klehm now hoes his corn. *
Dr. De Bausset claims entire originality
for his scheme on which he has been at
work for the last twenty years, but a man,
shortly after the air-pump was invented,
tried the same thing with a globe of thin
copper with the result of a collapse. Tlie
doctor was asked if he had mode any ex
periments, but he “hemmed” au<l “hawed”
and finally admitted that he had made two.
One was with a thin glass globe which
shivered into bits the moment the air was
exhausted, and the other was with the globe
of an incandescent electric lamp.
“Hoc how fight it is,” exclaimed the doc
tor, and trim! to make it stand on end. Rut
the little pear-snaped bulb would topple over
just as clumsily as if it had been “chuck”
full of air.
The high-sounding appellation of the com
pany of which M. De Jiausset is President,
and which is to imild the air-ship, is the
Transcontinental Aerial Navigation Com
pony, and was ineorimrated with a capital
stock of $150,000, at *lOO a share.
An effort '.van made to find out how many
shares had been taken, but M. Deßausset
was very shv about saving anything on that
score, and declared that lie was talking sci
ence just then. If his visitor had come to
talk business that would lie “deefferong.”
He said, however, that if a person gave $lOO
or $lO,OOO, he would only get one scat ill the
air ship. From wlvit lie said it was learned
that, neither of the Fnrwells, Marshall Field.
“Old Hutch,” Phil Armour or any other of
the prominent scientists of Chicago had
Laid their little all at his feet to aid in the
grand cause of conquering for man tlie un
trodden empire of the air.
On the back page of one of the pamphlets
which Dr. Do lkiuvft gets out, he has given
to mankind gems of thought, of which tho
following are the brightest:
