The occasion was thoroughly en

it proved one of the .pleasing inci

Mr. Eugene Zimmerman, the genial
president ot the Alabama and Georgia
Iron-Company arrived in the city yes
terday,after spending the holidays with
his daughter in Cincinnati.
Mr. Zimmerman was a welcome vis

The Standard’s suggestion that we
make the “blowing in” of the furnace
an occasion for public rejoicing has
struck a popular chord with onr people,
and we are glad to be able to announce
that the event will be duly celebrated.
A parade will be formed at 9.30 o’clock
next Wednesday morning in front of
the Connell Chamber on Main street.
TheBaugh-Zimmerman Band will head
the procession, followed by our city of
ficials in carriages, the Fire Department

An informal reception will be given
to Mr. Zimmerman on Thursday even

at which our people w ill have ah oppor
tunity of becoming acquainted with
this genial gentleman.
Let onr business men close their
stores for a little while Wednesday
morning, and let onr citizens generally
participate in the parade and rejoicing.
The starting of this fnrnace, after so
maDy years of inactivity, means great
things to Cedartown, and is certainly
good reason for general jubilation.
Cedartown, Ga., Jail. 2nd, 1900.
To the Members, of the Democratic
Executive Committee for Polk Co.
Gentlemen The last general elec
tion in this county, and the campaign
leading up to it, impressed all thought
ful citizens with the urgent need for
a. change in our methods of selecting
our public servants. Nor was this
condition peculiar to Polk county.
From many parts of the State a cry
went up to the Legislature for some
measure of relief from the demoraliz
ing practices that bad fastened them
selves like barnacles upon our electoral
methods. When the Legislature as
sembled in 189S, Senator Redding, of
the 22nd district, introduced a ballot-
reform bill which gave promise of rid
ding our elections of some very ob
jectionable features. But the General
Assembly lias adjourned finally with
out passing it. It is now with tbe
people to either take hold of the ques
tion themselves,' and make an honest
effort to correct these notorious and
undisputed evils, or to go on in the
old ruts and evil ways until decent
people will dread an election as if H
were a .pestilenoe.
It is a matter of common observa
tion and remark that vicious practices,
in increasing number and variety,
have of late years grown in strength
and fierceness with each recurring
election. Nor is it likely that this
state of affairs will be- improved until
an aroused public sentiment demands
it. I believe that snch a-sentim»nt
pervades this county now, and that
the time is ripe for action.
If any measure of relief is to be at
tempted before another election is
held, it is, ip my opinion, of the high
est importance that tbe work should
be begun at once., To delay it until
the initiatory rigor of our next cam
paign fever has shaken the body

politic would be to invite partial if
not complete failure. When candi
dates for office are in the field, when
competition for place is keen, when
public interest in individuals has been
aroused and the issues of the contest
are doubtful, how many would stop to
calmly and impartially 'consider tbe
merits of any scheme proposed? Cer
tain it is, that efforts to correct the
evils referred to would command more
instant and universal support if made
far enough in advance of the next
election to divest the movement of
the appearance, or even suspicion, of
being in the interest of any candidate
The suggestion that finds most favor
with thoughtful and observant citizens
is a white primary, in which all legally
qualified white voters should be asked
to participate. This plan has been
tried by the citizens of Cedartown in
tbe last two elections for Mayor and
Councilmen with most gratifying re
sults. So far as my information goes,
there is not a man in Cedartown, who
favors political cleanliness and de
cency, who is not pleased with the re
sults of this experiment. The cities
of Atlanta, Marietta and Rome, and
some counties, have tried this plan
also, and in no single instance has it
failed to result in great improvement
As upon tile Democratic Party, the
predominant political force in this
State, rests the responsibility for good
or bad government, so it properly be
comes the duty of the official represen
tatives of that party in tbe county to
take the initiative in bringing this
matter of vital interest before the
people for discussion and action. To
this end, I hereby call a meeting of
the Democratic Executive Committee
for Polk'county at.1 jR rfn jirsSfStoHffiy.
aSnraary 13th, 1900, at the Court House,

in public affairs and have opinions
upon live subjects, learn their views,

this movement. Wm. Bradford,
