It would be economy for Macon and Birmingham to mcct^it the State line and hang Hawes and Wool folk to the same limb. The Liberty county Messiah is now in the asylum at Millcdgeville. His deluded colored followers arc still looking for that “kyai ” load of angels widgs. An exchange says that the late Sul livan and Kilrain mill is no longer re ferred to as a “fight,” but that it is now called Sullivan and Kiirain’s “flight.” And now Miss Caldwell, another American girl, is going to marry a titled foreigner. Some of these fool ish Amerciau girls might as Veil throw themselves away on an editor. The administration is taking a va cation at Deer Park. The adminis tration will have to take nnothcr— and it is to be hoped—a long vacation, in ’92. IS Every member of the legislature ought to vote for Gordon’s bill to omit the reading of bills, except by cap tion, on the first reading. It would save the State thousands of dollars. Some one has said that life and liv ing is up-hill work. The trouble with many people is that they climb hills before they get to them. And this is the hardest kind of climbing. Push right ahead, and the mountains will dwindle down to mole-hills. The ministers of Charleston excori ated McDow, in their sermons, or Sunday. Murder and adultery were shown up in their blackest colors. The effect of these sermons will not only be felt in Charleston, but through out the country. Let tht,, fight be kept up. If a criminal wants to escape pun ishment, he ought to make tracks for Tennessee. Gov. Taylor and fudge McAllister will shield him. And this is anything but creditable to that State. The State is likely lo reap a big harvest of criminal immigrants. A spirited discussion is going on in the newspapers as to whether Mr, Lincoln was a religious man or not It occurs to us that, as the question in the case has been adjudicated in the highest ecclesiastical court in the uni verse, the agitation of the subject 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 for existence. . 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 to submit. 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 had. 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 knowledge. 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 graduate, and sleigh rides will supersede tf e barren promenade or the sweltering dance, People are at leisure during the holidays, and there is really no reason why a bache- lor’of arts should not get a diploma in his locking. The Southern season is even better suited for a Christmas commencement than the Northern. All around, the crisp, bracing air of winter is more inviting to intellectual effort than the pressing swelter of summer. There arc more rosy cheeks and bright eyes at that season.—Augusta Chronicle. It sounds somewhat paradoxical to call the end of a session a “commence ment.” Tanner in More Trouble. Wash [No i.on, July 10.—Corporal Tanner and Assistant Secretary Bus sey have locked horns over the re moval by Bussy, during Tanner’s News in Brief. Fitzpatrick, the referee in the rcat Kilrain-Sullivan slugging match, lias ordered all bets paid. He also advises all that took any part in absence in the west, of three members 1 the fight to surrcndcr-to Gov. Lowry It is now claimed that Sullivan when but one year old, gave his grand mother a “diff ’ which colored the old lady's eye black. Upon this evidence it is proposed to send Sullivan to Con gress. Well, John might make him self useful in Congress by knocking some of the long-winded speakers out on thq first round. Then, in case of a disturbance in the house, he would be ot invaluable assistance to the sergeant at-arms in preserving or der. ■ ^ ••• The proposed bill to make the term of service one year, at lanst, in the volunteer military companies of Geor gia, will give a permanency and stand ing to these companies which they have never had. The State is going to be asked to appropriate money to aid her citizen soldiery, and she lias a right to ask a years’ service from each of her soldier boys. The volunteer soldiery of Georgia is the State’s pro tection. The State would not be safe without these organizations. The ono year clause will make them still more effective. It is very gratifying to lee that llu- north cm press lias conic out Hut-footcl again? prize-fighting. Its position was taken n soon as a prize fight came oil’ in the sunt! By all means these brutnl fistic exhibitions shouhAe suppressed, and the next tiuu is announced to take place in u northern state, it is to tie hoped unit the norther press will do everything possible to plover it._ AY,,.,. The very day upon which Sullivan and Kilrain fought in Mississippi there was a bloody and brutal mill fought in the shadow of New York City. Stop slugging up there, gentle men. We’ll try and corral the next pair ot bullies who come South to exhibit their pugilistic powers. A Move in the Right Direction Rcpi'psenalivc W. W. (.onion intro duced into (lie legislature, a day or two ago, a very important bill, 'ft provides for amending the constitu tion so as lo do away with the first reading of bills iu each house, except by title. When bills are read for the first time tinder (he present practice the whole of them is read. It is estimated t this reading consumes about one- half of the time of the winter session, and one-fourth of that of the summer session. It is apparent, therefore, 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. We want a constitutional amend ment making a dog owner ineligible to a seat in the Georgia legislature, then, may be, we can get rid of the thousands of mangy, flea-bitten, worth less curs which make liie a burden and sheep-raising unprofitable.—South ern Affiance Farmer. of the board of medical examiners. Bussey removed them for recommend ing rcrating of pensions in order to give large arrears to employees of the office and others. He did this chief ly on in.'ormation furnished by Dr. McMillan and other members of the board. Corporal Tanner has vowed that McMillan must go for thus inter fering with his work of increasing pensions One thing that peculiarly riled Cor poral Tanner was that the papers forwarded to the - Assistant Secretary by Dr. McMillan bore on them stamped words, “Through the com missioner,” although Corporal Tanner was out west and would not have for warded them if lie had been here. The fight is so hot between Bussey and Tanner that one or the other tuny have to go. Secretary Noble is doing what he can to keep it quiet and secure peace. Johnstown’s Big Fund. 1’tTTsnrno, Pa., July 10.—The Pittsburg committee for the relief of the Johnstown sufferers this morning voted §400,000 of the funds on hand to the state commission for distribu tion by the latter. The Pittsburg committee has decided to wind up its affairs, and leave the state commission in charge. Ail Knocked Out. John L. Sullivan lms increased Ins pug ilistic prestige in Boston, his home, but 1ms not added to his political stature, lie re marked after lie had knocked out Kilrain that he w mid not light Jackson, the Aus tralian negro, because lie did not believe in t white man bringing himself to thi? level. This was an audacious demarcation of the color line and was a red defiance wav^ in liic home of abolitionism. It must have stirred up their followers in the home of Wendell, Philips, Lloyd Har rison and B. F. Butler. Just think of the great lights of history being snuffed by the inpious hand of Sullivan; the moral of a century of political revolution going down one roun l under the foot of Miildoon’s protege! We shall expect to hear of the prompt arrest of John L. when lie reaches Boston,—Augusta Chronicle. of Mississippi.

(Botanic Blood Balm) made by Blood Balm Co., Atlanta, Ga., will cure blood pois on in its worse phases, even when all other treatment fails. A. P. Brunson, Atlanta, writes: “I had 24 running ulcers on one leg and t> on the other, and felt greatly prostrated. J believe I actually swallowed a barrel of medicine in vain efforts to cure the disease. With little hope I finally acted upon the urgent advice of a friend and got a bottle of. B. II. B. experienced a change, and my despondency was somewhat dispelled. I kept using it until I had token sixteen bottles, and all the ulcers, rheumatism and nil other horrors of blood poison have disappeared, and at last I am sound and well again,after an experience of twenty years of torture.” Uobcrt Ward, Moxey, Ga., writes: “My disease was pronounced a tertiary form of blood poison. My fucc, head and shoulders were a mass of corruption, and finally the disease began eating my .skull liones. My liones ached; ray kidneys were deranged; I lost flesh, and life became a burden. All said I must die, but nevertheless, when 1 had used ten bottles of B. B. B. I was pronounc ed well. Hundreds of scars can now be seen on me. I lave now been well over twelve months.” FOR RENT, The Episcopal Rectory, on McLean Ave nue. Possession given at once. Apply to Rbv. C. I. LaRoche, tf, Fletcherville. Headquarters lor Drugs!
