We ondorae heartily tbo following from the Wayoross Reporters “ Silver dollars with boles in them nro painfully numerous, but they, are not half so painfully numerous as holes without any silver dollars around them.” Rev.

The most common things now-a- days are suicides. Every day has its victims. Mr. W. tt Felder, brother of Mayor Felder, of Amcricus, Ga., is among tho list fur the week just end- od. Ho had been in bad health for some timo, suffering from lung dis ease and Bright’s disease of tho kid neys. On Monday last ho shot him self to put an end to his sufferings.

Certainly there is yet no signs of the approaching mil lennium. WHO SHAU. BE OOB NEXT OOV- EBNOttP Tbe Comtitution, in a recent num ber, refers to Judge Crawford, of tbe Snpreme Court bench, and Hon. A. O. Bacon os tbe announced candi dates for Governor next year, and in timates that there will probably be derful variety*)! exhibits. Those who many other candidates in the field.— 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 his friends. 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 riment. Ho is, whilo n stanneb and true Democrat, neither in favor of Bonr- bonism or indiscriminate ’’bonrbon.” He believes in material development and progress. He will givo us a thor oughly reapectablo and efficient od ministration, and, while wo do not doabt other and able friends of Soatb Georgia will be named, wo think bis claims upon our section for past scr vices should bo remembered in deter mining tbe action of our people. Wo deem it rntlior early to bo dis cussing this mattor, but ns our cotem poraries have opened tbo ball, wo doom it but 1 proper that wo should express oar sentimonts. 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 tate. 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 Tho Kxpowlton ami tto Toaohlmia— Our KaUroadu— Immiaratton— The New South. As the Exposition closes to-day, a word as to its teachings and its bene fits is iu order. There is no necessity for enlarging upon its extent, its won- the exposition Closes to-day.

Those who have seen even the faint iden of it conyeyed by tbe newspapers know that it is a wonder ful display. The people of tbe South knew hard ly anything of tho vast undeveloped resources within their borders anti) this exhibition. Capitalists from the North and West and, Europe have been astonished and delighted at 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 cotton, while king, is bnt one of tbe many vast fields In which wealth may be acquired. It will induce new methods in the handling of cotton and its preparation for market—im proved methods of manufacture, of cultivation, and of enrichment of tho soil 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 ery all over tho booth. Indeed, ex 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 a cord to articles of commerce worth $14.00 in an honr. 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 op these resources. As that capital 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 of road by a comprehensive system of immigration, enoouragod by special rates, by advertising tbe country nnd its resources, by tbo employ mont of skilled immigration agents in tbe North, Northwest and Europe, and by tho n'timato establishment of im migration depots nt Savummli nnd Brunswick, combining direct trade and immigration. Thought has been stimulated by the Exposition, by tbo investment of cap ital in railroads, and tbo welding of detached portions of road into grout systems, reaching into tbo rornoto North and Southwest for freights und passengers. The Exposition is tbo grand open ing of tho now Sontb—of an era bright with promise—tbe culmination of tbo work of reconciliation, which has obliterated all merely sectional lines, and established in tbsir place a beneficent and generous rivalry in tbe work of development 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 follow the nxo nnd mill man with tbe agriculturalist; to bring the agricul turalist hero from the inclement North and Wist and from Europe, and locate him along onr lines of rosd, encouraging bis efforts until tbe wilderness shall grow bright and beautiful, aud yield bonntifnlly ns a result of bis labors. Captain J. C. Reynolds nud bis corps of field engineers is back again.

AtUnti Coartltutlon 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- tones. 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, bnt tbo problem in its entirety will not como up until a bill is reported that lion for its object tbe eradication of the evil.
