It says truly that Major Bacon bos
acquired many fast friends in every
county of tbe State daring bis ten
years’ experience as Speaker of tbe
Honse. It may well bo added that in
addition ta the personal friendship
thus created, he has commanded tbe
respect of a large constitnency by bis
uniform courtesy of demeanor and
impartial and independent exeroise of
his powers, varied and delicate, and
requiring not only a thorough knowl
edge of Parliamentary usage, but al
so a thorough, acquaintance with leg
islation past and present. He has,
daring the ten years’ experience al
lotted to, becomo eminently qualified
for the high and exalted position of
Governor, for which he is named by
South Oeorgia can and docs exer
cise a potential influence in tbe elec
tion of a Governor. On canvassing
tbe namce presented it should bo re
membered that Major Bacon, through
good and evil report, has been a
friend of competition, of our M. <k B.
and B. A A. Railroads, perhaps in tho
post to bis political and business det

CENTltAI* ttTlT.BoAD STOCK.
Whom* is tho Scrip Dividend ?
In a recent will case in Chatham,
tbe following points were presented:
A party dies leaving Central Rail
road stock, tbe dividends to be paid
to certain parties daring their natu
ral life, and at death, tho stock to be
divided to certain other heirs. Mean
while Mr. Wadley comes forward and
says, “ I will now issue n scrip divi
dead of 40 per cent, on all Central
Railroad stock, tho snuio being divi
dends for previous years, but which
ho had withheld for reasons given.—
The question in disputo is
whoBe is this scrip dividend ? Docs
it belong to tho temporary heirs or to
tho permanent ones? Tho caso went
to tho Snporior Court, and that Hon
orable Body, after mature delibera
tion, has given tbe same to tempora
ry heirs. This may bo law, but it
fails to bo justice in oar humble judge
ment. This dividend so declared is
tho property of tho original estate. It
was not known to have been in exist
ence; io other words, supposed to have
been lost. After tho death of the orig.
iunl owner, it is found to exist nnd le
gitimately belongs to tbe originnl es
The same is truo of all stock sold
sinco the years when Mr. Wadley
failed to pay tho dividends thus ac
cruing. The scrip dividend issued
this year for those years is tho prop
erty of those parties owning said
stock during that time.
Whilst on this Bubject, wo wish to
loach upon a point closely allied
thereto, to-wit: South Western Rail
road stock. Some years ago, tho Con-
trnl leased the S. W. Railroad and
agreed to pay seven per cent on stock
of same, if wo mistake nut. It is
cluimcd that snid 8. W. R R. tuts not
earned it; if such bo trac, then does
not tbo scrip dividend of 32 per cent.,
issued to 5. W. Railroad stock hob
ders recently, also belong to tho Cen
tral Railroad stock holders ?
We throw out these snggestions for
our readers, many of whom are, or
have been, owners of snid Central Rail-
rond stock. The viows wo entertain
nro certainly equity, and as such
ought to be law if it is not

The people of tbe South knew hard

this exhibition. Capitalists from the

varied fields for tbe profitable invest
ment of capital in mines and mills
and agriculture, demonstrated by tbe
exhibits on tbe grouuds of the Expo
sition. It has langbt the Sonth that

many vast fields In which wealth may

It will induce millions of capital
within unr borders to mine fur our
minerals, manufacture oar iron, and
movo onr coal to market.
It will introduce improved machin

hibitors have taken lurge quantities
of orders for new machinery.
It will teach approved methods of
utilizing for commercial purposes
hundreds of things heretofore coosid
crod worthless, an apt illustration of
which is tho retort iu which refuse
pine wood from our forests can be
changed from light wood worth $2.00

It has taught onr railroads tbe util
ity of cheap rates—has shown them
the valuo of their property, and tbe
undeveloped resources along their
linos, oven more clearly than they
know them before, and will induce
millions of dollars of capital to devel

comes in, labor will be needed. Tbe
lessons of tbe census demonstrate the
importance of immigration, nnd that
can only be indoecd along tbe lines

immigration, enoouragod by special

has obliterated all merely sectional

South Georgia, tbo garden s|>ot of
tbe State, can learn many lessons
from tbo Exposition. Her display
there attracted wide attention. It
was nothing like as varied as it’might
have been, but it demonstrated our
advantages in many departments of
agriculture, in sheep hnsbnndry, cat
tie raising, horticulture, truck farm
ing, wine growing, and the growth of
many spcciul products.
It should tench us to utilize our
waste lands denuded of timber—to

THE MORMON QUESTION.
President Arthur and Senator Ed
monds at least are very orach Inclined
to seek a solution of tbe Mormon
problem; and there is a feeling in
parte of tbo foonntry tbatf polygamy
ebonld either be pul down without de
lay, or left to itself. Utah already
contains 144,000 people, and tbe Mor
mons will soon control Idaho and Ar
izona. Nevada on tbe west is a State
almost without population. If Utah
becomes a State ,tbe [entire problem
posies ont of the hands of the gov
ernment; if the territory is divided ap
among tbe adjoining States and Ter
ritories, tbe Mormons wonld control
all of them; and Congress is therefore
expected to choose between tbe do-
nothing policy and an earnest at
tempt to crash polygamy iu tbe terri-
Tbe question will first come np in
tbe Honse on tbe demand, made by
Mr. Cannon to a seat. Cannon, in bis
declaration now on file, says: “I ad
mit that I am a member of tbe church
of Jeans Christ of Latter Day Saints,
commonly called Mormons; that in
nccordnnco with tbe tenets of said
cbnreb, I have taken Bcverol plural
wives, who now live with me and luvc
so lived with me for a number of
years and borne me children.”
Tbe consideration of this case will
disclose tbo tendencies of tbo Honse,

not como up until a bill is reported

of the evil.
