By the disgraceful filibuster-!
ing of a minority of the members
of the House, the bill for the
new depot on the state’s property
in Atlanta seems likely to be de
feated—for this session,'at least.
Don’t forget that next Wednes

The State Senate lias killed the
osteopathy bill—just ns it should
have done. If the osteopaths
want to practice medicine, let
them pass the regular medical
examination and get a profess
ional license from the state. The
examinations for license to prac
tice medicine, law and dentistry
should be rigid enough to keep
out quackB and incompetents. A
man should at least convince the
state that lie knows the dilferenee
between the medulla oblongata
and a femur before he is al
lowed to tinker with people’s
life and health.
The much-mooted Confederate
Soldiers’ Home in Atlanta is to
be accepted by the state at last-
much to the gratification of the
veterans aiid their friends. The
House pnssed the bill to that
eil'ect yesterday, and the Senate
will undoubtedly follow suit.
The movement was started by
the late Henry Grady in 1889,
who raised over $40,000 by pri
vate subscription for the pur
pose. A tract of 119 acres near
Atlanta was purchased, and a
substantial 'three-story building
with seventy-five rooms was built
After the completion of the
Home, it was tendered to the
state, but the proffer was refused,
the Legislature at that time pre
ferring to give its aid to the
veterans in the way of pensions.
The bill which passed the House
yesterday, and which received
the vote of Hon. J. B. Ayers, the
Representative from Polk, makes
the following provisions:—
The sum of $16,000 is appropriated
for maintaining and furnishing the
same for the first year, but no part of
this sum shall be expended until there
are 46 applications for admission.
There shall be a board of 11 trustees,
one from each Congressional district,
who shall have charge of the home and
serve without compensation.
These trustees shall appoint a super
intendent at a salary not to exceed
$600. Shall elect a treasurer, steward

The people have asked for
bread but are likely to get noth

the reduction of the heavy war
taxes. The republican majority
now seems inclined to make the
reduction solely in the interests
of the beer trust, which would
not be felt at all by the
people—not even by the beer-
drinker, for whom the rela
tive proportions of beer and foam
in the glass would be maintained
as at present.
