Encourage Public Improvements.
The danger that the pendulum will
swing just a “lcetlc” too far, in the
matter of railroad legislation, appears
to be cropping out in Atlanta. Geor
gia, while protecting her citizens
against monopolies, whether they he
railroads, trusts or combines of any
kind, should not go to the extent, in
the first case, of crippling railroad
building. Give everybody a chance
to build a railroad. Encourage their
building. They arc the great devel
opers of the day. Hostile legislation
against any class, whether it he the
riclt or the poor, big corporations or
small ones; provided these corpora
tions arc doing, or propose to do, a
legitimate business, is a ruinous policy.
Georgia, just now, is on the eve of the
greatest development of her resources
known in iter history, and any legisla
tion which would drive capital front
the state, would he suicidal. These
enterprises, these capitalists, can lie
given encouragement ami a fair show
ing in Georgia, without endangering
tho rights of the people. I he inter
ests of railroads and people are not
inimical; rather are they mutual. The
people arc interested in new and com
peting lines ol roads; and the roads
arc interested in the prosperity of
every citizen along their lines. If the
people prosper the railroads prosper.
Let justice be done till parties, people^
railroads and all corporations.
The Boston Herald says that “if
climate, accessibility and natural re
sources count for any thing, the great
central section of our southern coun
try is destined to he the manufacturing
center of the United States, this be
ing only another form of saying, the
future workshop of the world.'’
When Boston will get down front
her stilts and talk this way, it would
appear that the millennium is gradu
The chief electrician of the Western
Union complained at lack of courte

nd there’s a heap of scuffling going

ere is a lot of scuffling going on.
The man who has just boen appoint
ed governor of Wyoming is said by
the chief justice of the supreme couit

and can count on holding his office.—
O, yes, ot course.
The Question of School Books.
From all over the state there
going up complaints against the wrong
done to parents by the system of com
netting them to buy a certain series of
hooks for their children.
A great deal is being said concern
ing trusts or combines, and justly, too,
but the publishers of school hooks
have escaped so lar; and yet, if there
are more inlantous trusts in the coun
try than those into which the aforesaid
publishers have entered, it has failed
to show itself. Whether willingly or
otherwise, the school hoards in the
various counties in the slate have fos
tered these trusts by buying their
hooks at about 200 per cent above
what they should cost.
No wonder the people are kicking,
and if they grow so loud in their com
plaints as to overthrow the system ol
school hooks now in vogue, it will he

He Wants Them to Emigrate.
Topeka, Ivans., July 8.—W. L.
Edgelsott, a prominent tiegro politician
of this State, is the prime mover in a
scheme to induce the negroes of the
South to emigrate to Oklahoma. He
has organized an immigration company
composed of some of the prominent
colored men of this State, and he ex
pects to have one himdred thousand
colored people in Oklahoma by next
July. He intends to go South him
Now we may look for an Oklahoma
craze among the negroes. The whites
have been sold, and G'uflec is to he

arc smart they will give the new terri
