Judge John L. Hopkins, of Atlanta,
writes a scathing article to the Con
stitution, on county jails. Wo append
a few paragraphs:
“From the testimony before me, 1
do not doubt that the condition ol
penitentiary convicts who arc under
going punishment for crime is vastly
better than that of unconvicted pris
oners in the average county jail.
* 4: * *
To make prison life comfortable is
not the object. That is unattainable,
and no law of duty requires it. Con
finement is discomfort. When con
finement is necessary, let it come. < hir

prompt and vigorous enforcement of
In that lies the happiness of a peo
ple, and no misdirected sympathy
should defeat it. At the same time,
the management that destroys llie
health and life of a prisoner, by
causes other than mere confinement,
is bad management.
If a prison that breeds pestilence
should meet the fate of the hostile,
humanity might lie excused for look
ing complacently upon its ruins.
There are two classes of prisoners,
the convicted and the unennvieted.
The unconvictcd arc presumed to be
innocent, and arc not to be punished
at all while in the unconvictcd state.
The convicted arc to stiller a legal
punishment—that prescribed by law.
Any other punishment is inexcusably

One suggestion in the way of re
form I venture to make. Require
each county to construct a stockade in
connection with the jail, and in that

As long as it can be avoided doti’t

These suggestione may well claim
the attention of county authorities all
over the State. As our county is soon
to build a new jail, wc invite the at

erection of the building to the views
of Judge Hopkins. They are timely

summer is now upon us, and notwith
standing an occasional croak, the
entire slate of Florida enjoys excep
tional health Our various sea-side
resorts are being well patronized, and
only a question of time when
Florida will be popular as a summer
resort. I think I can, at this distance,
witness a credulous smile —an expres
sion almost ot pity—for one who would
dare to make this assertion But
wait. The long absence of rain has
cut short vegetable and other crops,
ami in many places the earth is still
parched, while our fellow mortals fur
ther north are praying for a sunny day.
Your people should Visit Florida during
the summer and decide as to its sa
lubrity and comfort. Many places on
the shore are being pushed ahead as
permanent pleasure resorts. Magnifi
cent hotels, rivaling, in splendor, the
palaces of the eastern world—fitted up
with all modern appliances which con
duce to comfort and ornament—one
class to accommodate the winter tour
ist; another with fountains, arched
ways, corridors and gardens arc being
constructed to attract those who are
looking for a cool place in the summer.'
We have water-ways in the interior,
serving to this splendid land the pur
pose of collonades and hall-ways to a
building. The peninsular being narrow
and highest at the centre or ridge is
admirably situated to catch the constant
breezes blowing Irom either the Atlan
tic ocean or the Gull of Mexico. There
is more in all this than you may dream
of. Investors arc spending mints of
money in such enterprises at many
points. Notwithstanding the crucial
period through which Florida has
recently passed, wc arc on our feet
again; values are increasing and all
mankind is settling down to the con
viction that this is a great country.

Talking Right Out.
The speech of President Estill, at
the reception teudered the Georgia
Press Association by the Commer
cial Club, of Jvnnsas City, on the oc- VU1 -._ r
casiou of the recent excursion of the season almost doubled that of any
association to the West, has been very preceding, and diversified agriculture
favorably noticed by the press. It everywhere, is receiving attention
has the ring of true metal about it.
Mr. Estill, said:
Mr. President, I thank you for the
manly words you have expressed. I
am glad, sir, that you referred to a
former visit of citizens of Georgi a to
your city. 1 thank you for reviving
to us what our colleagues then said to
‘l.oyiil or nut loyal, r<i!l it wlml you limy,
Wc me American citizens anil arc back to

country, and devoted to one common
flag. Wc have no apologies to offer.
The troubles which commenced
twenty-five years ago upon the bor
ders of Kansas were settled at Apjio-
niottox ajid settled, thank God, ior-
cvcr. [Applause.] There is no issue
which enn now come between the
people of the North and South or Jhe
past or West. This is an indivisible
union of States, and the States of the
South are just as devoted and loyal to
the stars and stripes as any in the
West or East. Thors is no hatred in
the South to the soldier of the North.
He fought for what he deemed right,
the soldier in the South did the same
thing. The sword settled the ques
tion, and why should it not be per
mitted to remain settled? I tell you
between the men who fought those
terrific battles the question i* settled
and there is no bickering between
those brave and heroic men. The
people of the South sacrificed all they
had. It is lost and gone and they are
not mourning, hut up and doing, hon
estly endeavoring to make a living
and build up their waste places.
Yesterday you spread flowers ou the
graves of your dead—green be those
graves. The South also scatters (low
ers ou the graves of her dead. They
too, were brave meu, and no one will
dispute it. But it is not of those sad
and trying times I wish to speak.
Let the past rest, and let the bitter
ness it engendered sleep in oblivion.
[Applause.] It is the present and
the future that tho people of the
South are thinking and working for.
We, who are your guests, are deeply
interested in the material interests of
Georgia. Wc have come out here to
see how it is that you people are so
prosperous. Wc want to learn how
it is that you take the oil of the cot
ton seed of Georgia and make fine
leaf lard cut of it. [Laughter.]

Midges Among the Wheat.
Indianapolis, June 20—The com
plaints about the destruction ol wheat
bv a strange insect are increasing.
They are coming chiefly from the
southern and eastern parts of the state,
but the ravages of the little bug have
already spread to northern Indiana,
and the secretary of the state board of
agriculture regards the reports as
alarming. The insect is what is known
among agriculturists as the “green
midge,” another species ol which is
‘the red midge.” The latter last ap
peared in this region about fifteen years
ago, and did great damage to growing
wheat. The green midge, the little
destroyer, which is now doing such
alarming work, lias not been seen by
the farmers since 1865, when it almost
entirely destroyed the wheat crop of
Indiana and the neighboring states.
Millions ol them appear in a field, set
tling upon a stalk from which they
draw the sap, causing the grain to
shrivel before it is matured. I.itdc is
known about them because their ap
pearance has been rare.
Fiance collects taxes on dogs to the
amount of §1,500,000 per annum.
And France is a prosperous country.

Institutions ol learning are being cs
tablished in various parts of the state
which rival in excellence those of
older and more populous—but not
more progressive states. Southwest
Georgia lias its attractions, not the
least ot which may be found in the
surroundings of Tliomasville, but the
topography of Florida is unique. The
average temperature and range of
humidity belongs exclusively to Florida.
The whole peninsula is unsurpassed
in point of health and thousands are
ready to testily to this indisputable fact.
Many of our towns have made during
the past three years most rapid strides
in permanent prosperity. What is
known as the sand slope of Florida has
bought ol southwest Georgia, and
placed in' elegant buildings, millions of
brick and large quantities ol other
building material and this is going on
steadily, so as we progress you are
bencfittcd; our prosperity is mutual;
one can’t well get on without the other.
Your visitors do not often return to the
north without visiting Florida. Your
town is ?. resting place for. ours—joint
benefit again. Jacksonville, the me
tropolis ol Florida, is now in position,
by reason of many natural attractions
and commercial advantages, to take
rank among the foremost cities of this
grand country, and the energy and
good qualities of her citizens will insure
continued prosperity. Why can you
not visit us during the summer and sec
for yourself? I will pledge you, in
advance, a most enjoyable trip.

A Battle With Gamblers.
W A venous, Ga., June 17.—fSlierifl
Henderson and u posse made a raid
on a negro shanty at Waltertown last
night, in which there were thirty
gamblers at play. The negroes imme
diately extinguished the lights and
began a fusilade upon the posse. The
posse returned the lire and the negroes
soon became rattled and eager for
escape. They packed the chimney,
pushing each other out upon the roof.
.Some five or six were extracted Irom
the chimney. One fellow, more dar
ing than the rest, shot at the party
from the roof after he had emerged
from his sooty Wrth. Nineteen were
bagged and jailed here. Eight of
them were tried this afternoon and
five were convicted and sentenced to
twelve months on the chain gang.
None of the posse were hit, hut it is
thought that some of the escaping
gamblers received slight wounds.
