Zealous, But Not Wise.
It is not easy to understand why
the friends of prohibition iu the Con
necticut legislature could want the
question of constitutional prohibition
put to a vote iu that state, and yet
they have secured the passage of a
bill for that purpose. It may well lie
doubted in the ljgjit of elections ou
this question during the last year or
two. whether they have acted wisely.
Constitutional prohibition docs not
appear to he what the people want.
Two years ago Oregon defeated it,
then Texas defcatca it, and then
West Virginia. This year it lias been
defeated in New Hampshire and Mas
sachusetts. According to the Voice,
a prohibition organ, it was defeated
iu the last named state because the
fight was not a non-partisan one, the
8 00 repnblicans generally voting against
it. The Voice gives the votes in the
democratic and republican counties
to bear out this assertion, and while
it appears that more democrats than
republicans voted fir the amendment,
yet doubtless the chief cause of the
defeat was the proposed inclusion of
cider in the list of prohibited intoxi
cants. The prohibitionists expected
that their majorities in the towns
Yvould overcome those against them
in the cities, but in this ' they were
disanpointed. Cider is a* source of a
considerable revenue to the Massachu-
sets farmers, and it is their fireside
beverage. Therefore, the greater
number voted against theamendment.
Whatever the cause of the defeat in
the state, however, its effects will be
adverse to the cause of prohibition at.
the election in Pennsylvania in June,
and with the record of defeat as giYen
above, it is*quite surprising that the
prohibitionists of the Connecticut leg
islature should have been in favor of
an election in that state on constitu-
tionol prohibition. If they had it in
their power to control prohibition leg
islation, ns it appears they had, tlioy
would have acted with wisdom by
placing the question before the people
in a more popular form.—News.
Georgia, conservative, sensible
Georgia, has coir o as near solving the
vexed problem of “prohibition as
any state in the union. Here, it is,
very properly, made a question of lo
cal option. If a town or county
wants prohibition they cau have it,
if they do not waut it uo state statute
forces it upon them. And it has been
abundantly demonstrated that the
law cannot bo enforced where a ma
jority arc opposed to it. Georgia’s
way is the best way. I n fact Georgia
is generally about right.
No Favors Looked, For.
Ex-Senator Eustis, speaking of the
president’s southern policy, says : “It
is believed in the South, and I believe
myself, that the president will recom
mend to congress the enactment of a
federal election law in the South
whereby the entire machinery for the
election of congressmen will pass un
der federal control. He will- do this
to satisfy the disgruuted set of old
republicans leaders. The president’s
Southern jiolicy, while otscnsibly
general ia its nature, will , really he
tutended to effect his pafty in tiic
border states,' where alone they can
hope to make gains.
Democrats who expect Harrison to
taken conservative stand, when the
republicans introduce sectional legis
lation iu the next congress—as they
arc sure to do—will be mistaken.
Harrison will not daru to veto or op
pose such partizan measure. He owes
his elevation to the presidency to this
same .sectional, partizan spirit, and it
is not likely he will assist in destroy
ing the ladder by vhich lie climbed.
Mr. Cleveland still holds his (ilace
in the confidence of the people. Some
people thought he would drop out iif
sight when he left the white
house. But he hasn’t. Nor is lie
likely to do s i. The ptfpcrs aud peo
ple still talk about him. His shadow
reaches across the intervening years
between now aud 1892. His burly
form is gradually taking torra ou the
canvas of that year. “Gath,” the
strong republican aud able writer, in
speafflngof Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Hayes
and President Harrison, at the New
York Centennial, says:
Cleveland is the best natural orator
ot the three; he has more origiuality
of literary style, more force of expres
sion, and rather more acuteness to
make an old point in a new way, or a
new point iu a fine way. The phys
ical clement, the rough courage, the
Belt-concentration and the ambition
ate more palpable in Cleveland than'
in two such men as Harrison and
Hayes put together.
Mr. Halford, the president’s pri
Yfttc secretary, is iu Atlanta. He
joined his wife there a day or so since.
It is shrewdly guessed that "Lije” is
measuring up some of the applicants
from Georgia for federal appoint
ments. He will find some mighty lit
tle men in his party in this stale.
A Relic of Secession,
Mii.i.GiMiKvii.tK, May il.—Judge
Siuitord, a promiueut lawyer of this
city, and an enthusiastic ex-Confed
erate, has iu his possession a cbpy of
the ordinance of secession, printed ou
silk. The names of nil the signers of
the ordinance, and of tho five who
dissented but pledged their support to
the new government also appear.
At the bottom of the ordinance is a
statement to the effect that Mr. Stro
ther would have signed the ordinance,
but was prevented by sickness.
Judge Sanford Las had the interest

which that gentleman goes for the

Mayor McIntosh says the railroads

This is a question which interests

Is there not a grain of philosophy,
and n grain of fact, too, in the remark
of the Charleston News and Courier,
that “the principal reason why the
North has distrusted flic South has
liecn the disposition of so many men
iu this section to explain and npolo-
gize, where neither explanation nor
apology lias been needed.”
Any man kuotys how to make a
clearing of a given width over which
vehicles may pass, under tavorable

men who arc able to construct a road

requires a degree of technical skill
not found iu matiy men. This fact
shows the importance of a change iu
the methods of making and main
taining roads iu Georgia.
A queer decision conies from the
supreme court ot Nebraska. It is
that a mortgage on growing edrn does
not cover the corn alter it is gathered
and cribbed. Growing corn is held to
be real estate and homestead corn per
sonalty not covered by a mortgage on
real estate. An exchange suggests
that the principle of this decision car
ried out legitimately would invalidate
a mortgage on a house dated last year
because the house ot this year is not

Value of Cotton Seed.
Nino hundred thousand bales of
cotton are produced in Georgia. For
every bale of cotton there is about
oue thousand p< unds of seed ; so wo

tons, yvc have 150,000 tons of cotton
seed raised in this state, take 50,000
toii3 for plantiug purposes and wc
have 100,000 tons left for sale.
In the 100,000 tons of cotton seed
there are 31,280,000 pounds of ammo
nia, worth at 15 cents per pound,
84,002,000. There were 136,500 tons
of ammoniated guano sold iu Georgia
last vear; this contained an average
of 21 per cent of ammonia or 6,800-
