A spirited discussion is going on in

It occurs to us that, as the question
in the case has been adjudicated in the

down here is out of order.
Two Important Questions.
Judge f). B. Harrell, of Wcbsler, is
a level-headed legislator. His views
upon important slate questions are
those of a careful observer and logical
thinker. He believes in higher edu
cation, and would like to sec the slate
university amply provided for and
branch colleges in each county, but lie
says: “f think our first efforts should
be to peitcct the common school sys
tern, both as a mailer of policy and as
a matter of clear constitutional duly.”
No one who has given the question
of education careful study, can doubt
tor a moment that the best interests of
this state require that the claims of
the pub ic schools take precedence of
those of higher education. It is the
duty of the legislature to provide an - ,
ply for good public schools in each
county, before appropriating any
monev for colleges Higher educa
tion cannot be too highly appreciated,
but it would be unjust to the massis
of the people, and against the best in
terest of society, to build up colleges
and universities at the expense of the
public schools. If*lhe stale is able to
give the public schools all they need,
and still have money lo appropriate
for educational purposes, no one will
complain if the requests in behalf of
higher education arc complied with,
but no arguments and no amount of
eloquence can convince the people
that colleges should he helped while
the common schools arc struggling
. With reference lo the state road,
Judge Harrell says that lie is firmly
convinced that it ought to bo sold.
H is reasons for this opinion are sound
ones. He does not think that the
state ought to own any property ex
cept that which is necessary to carry
on the government. Who will deny
that, lie is right? All the property
that the state lias, except what is nee
e-ssary for purposes of government,
ought to he sold; and the money ob
tained for it appropriated to the pay
ment of the public debt.
Judge Harrell points out that one
of the reasons why there is so strong
an opposition to the sale of the state
road is the fear that fhe sale would
operate agniust the common school
fund, but lie shows that the road
could be add on such t:rms that the
school fund would receive more than
it docs at present. Although the pro
vailing sentiment is now in favor of
leasing the road, the time may soon
come when it will appear that those
who oppose selling the road made a
mistake. The changes that arc con
stantly being made in the railroad
situation are so frequent and great
that it is not at all improbable that
within a few years the road will he
virtually bottled up and its value
greatly lessened.—Savannah News.
A BETTERMENTS BOMB.
A Proposition to Resort to Arbitration.
Atlanta, Ga., July 16.-—The bet
terments bomb exploded in the Wes
tern and Atlantic railroad committee
meeting this afternoon. It has been
expected several days, hut it was gen
erally looked lor first in the House.
Near the close, of the session of the
committee, the lease bill being about
finished, Mr. Huff, of Bibb county,
who has watched every development
like a hawk, suggested that if the
time had arrived for this lease bill,
the time bad also arrived to ascertain
just what the state had to*lease.
Judge Knwson, of Putnam, thought
so too, and said lie had a resolution
touching the subject, which lie desired
DRIFT OF Tin: liKSOl.FTION.
I To drew the document from his
pocket and read it. The resolution
was in effect that, while not commit
ting the state in any way to admission
or allowance of betterments, it pro
posed to submit the whole question
to arbitration, the state to select one
eminent railroad man and one end
nent lawyer, the lessees to make alike
selection, and these to select a fifth
member of the board; the whole mat
ter of betterment's to be submitted to
this hoard, and their decision to be
absolute and final. The resolution, it
is reported, was drawn by Maj. Joseph
B. I'll aiming, of Augusta, attorney
for the lessees. The resolution demor
alized the committee into an adjourn
ment before any discussion could be
RAISED A STIR.
There was considerable stir about
the hotels and among the members
to night, this new move in the big
game furnishing the topic of talk. It
rumored to night that the resolu
tion, perhaps in a modified form, prob
ably subjecting the hoard selected to
ratification by. the legislature, will be
introduced in the House by some
member friendly to the lessees a id in
favor of betterments. . It is apparent
that the lessees’ interests arc here,and
that they have friends here busy with
the legislature. That they will bring
every pressure to bear to obtain large
betterments, cannot be doubted. The
feeling here to-night is that the great
betterments fight is now on, and that
it will be a lively one.
Perfect the Common Schools.
A perfect system of public schoo s is the
demand of the day. What can save our
country from the wreck of monopolies, the
terrors of anarchy an 1 the crushing result
of centralization, hut an educated, enlight
ened and conservative ha'lot. Then educate
the whole people ami not the few'.I’ut a perfect
system of education within the reach of the
sons and (laughters of toil, where the chan
tvs of every youth shall be equal, and
the man who wins the prize have the higlu
education free. The branch colleges can
not do this, they are out of the reach of the
country boys who have to help jibout horn
and yet are hungering and thirsting for
Educate the girls, too. Who is to simp
the lives of the men of the future out the
mothers w,.o rear them ? If “the hand that
rocks the cradle rules the world,” let the
hand he that of an educated, refined, culti
ated mother, whose highest ambition for
her children .“lmll be that they become no
ldc men and women, standing in honor
among the sovereign people of Geor
Southern AH inner Farmer.
We endorse the above, but would
add that higher education, the pros
perity of the University and branch
colleges should be helped and en
couraged. A young man, and there
are hundreds such iu Georgia to-day
who wants to climb the educational
ladder to the top, should, also, be giv
en a chance. The common schools
and higher education go hand
hand. Let both receive the lostering
care of the State.
A Change of Term.
Chancellor Pierson, of the University
the state of New York, has made a new lc
parture. lie wants school commencements
held at a cooler season of the year. Christ
mas week is suggested as the proper time
for the annual convocations, instead of June
and July. It is a time when festivity is
the air, even the “stilly air” of classical
colleges. Then the misletoc. instead of the
holly-hock, will hang over the sweet girl

When bills are read for the first

t this reading consumes about one-

that it is very expensive lo the stale.
The expenses of the legislature are
about $1,150 a day, and the cost of the
first reading of bills cannot hi- less
than $50,000 for each legislature.
This amount Capt. Gordon proposes
to save by Ibis bill.
