A Local Military Company.
One of the lessot s taught by the
recent race disturbances in Atlanta,
Forest City and Selina, is the necessi
ty for the establishment in every
community of njwcll officered and ef
fective military company.
It ts impossible to predict when
and how often these race riots will
occur, hut il is only reasonable to
conclude that, with an inflammatory
element in our population, ersily stir-
rtd to violence, and too frequently
irritated by incendiary utterances
from outside sources anil from turbu
lent representatives of their own race,
that the history of the south for the
next decade or more will he liberally
sprinkled with disturbances of this
kind, always serious in nature find
startling in possibilities.
There is no comparable protection
to that which is afforded a community
by a well drilled and effective milita
ry company. No matter bow sud
den Iv il riot may come, upon ajmo-
nient’s warning a thoroughly organ
ized company of men are at hand, to
seize bold of regulation weapons,
ready and waiting to defend the
peace and interests of society under
the high authority of the state. To
oppose the mob with the mob is al
ways uncertain and irregular, and
leaves the result in doubt, with the
additional disadvantage of no legal
authority to back such opposition.
But the steady tramp of uniformed
soldiery, representative of authority
and law, hacked by a governor’s
directions, and emphasizing their
protest at the point of a gleaming
musket, is the most effective of all
the agencies known, to quietmobs and
to allay incendiary gatherings.
The people of Rome are not wise
and foreseeing, if they do not lend
themselves thoroughly and heartily,
to the encouragement and support of
the excellent military company now
existing Ju Tome. Every business
man, every property owner has a vital
interest in the continuance of this
organization and can well aflord, as a
wise investment, to put money, if it
may he necessary, in the perpetuation
and equipment of the Hill City Cu
We trust that the stirring events of
the last few weeks, and the ominous
possibilities which they raise, will
impress upon our people with what
they owe in gratitude and in interest
to the local military company.
And we also trust that our repre
sentatives in the legislature will be so
tar impressed by the lessons ot the
hour, as to give a hearty concurrence
to any scheme considered by that
body for the prosperity and greater
effectiveness of the volunteer soldiery
of Georgia.—Tribune of Rome.
Louis Arnheim, of Dougherty, and

At a meeting of Little Cedar Alli
ance No. 1-t I, licit 1 July 2d, lWd, it
was unanimously voted by the body
to expel E. M. Ledbetter from the
order and publish him as an imposter.
The said F. M. Ledbetter, on the
honor of an Allianceman, contracted,
a debt with Lcekeifc Harris, of Cedar,
town, Ga.jtind failed to pay said debt
as per contract. He then gave a
mortgage on five acres ot cotton and a
yoke of oxen. The cotton lie didn’t
have and he carried the oxen to Ala

away with another man’s wife, and
left a wife and four children behind

Another “Dying State.”
A recent editorial in these columns,
which discussed Nevada as a “dying
state,” has aroused an echo in the east
—Vermont. The New York Telegram
says the mathematicians of the
Green Mountain state have been fig
uring out its asscsts of population, and
the grand total has sent a chill down
their spinal columns.” Sprouts from
the parent trees have started into new-
life out wist at such rate that Ver
mont's vitality can’t stand the drain
on its system, and now a state com
mission is calling loudly for iinmi
grants to come and save it. < >ld farm
ers have abandoned their farms in
such numbers that twenty thousand
acres of good arable land are going to
waste. The last state election shows
the lowest poll for years. Vermont,
in fact, is in a very had way. Ilcr
voting men have grown tired of hard
cider, maple sugar, and quilting bees,
and have gone west to find something
better than worked-out land and
Not only from Vermont, hut from
other New England states the tide of
young blood is pouring south and
west. The boasted land of “protec
tion to American manufacturers” has
overdone the patriotic (?) impulse,
and the lords of the loom have ab
sorbc l the substance of the soil, till
the latter is worn out and its tilers
arc impoverished. Come south,
young men, and grow lip under a
newer and a better civilization ; the
Caucasian manhood, of “tariff for
revenue only,” and every man attend
to his own business.—Timcs-L'uion
