The man who closed the gambling dens in Macon ought to be elected mayor. And now John Sullivan wants to go to congress. If he will promise to flatten the nasal organ of Reed, let him go.

The man who flies to argue a wom an into loving him may succeed, per haps, but lie must have a long life and no rival.—Somerville Journal.. Atlanta has been taking in more territory. The new acquisition adds teat thousand to her population. Great isl Atlanta—and she’s growing greater. It is easy enough to find plenty of men who think the world owes them a living, but hard to find a chap who is willing to own up that lie lias col lected the debt in full.—Exchange. :_A Salem (Ore) newspaper recently printed' the following personal: If John Jones, who twenty years ago deserted his wife and babe, will re turn, said babe will lick the stuffing out of him. The usual weekly sporadic duel affair (which never comes off) took place in Columbus, the other day. It is a cold week when Columbus fails to get up a duel—which, by the tvay, is always settled by the intervention of friends. Capt. C. Columbus, sailed over the ocean blue in '92; but it took him 72 days. Captain Columbus would doubt less be surprised to sec the City of Paris, or the Eutraria, steam across the broad Atlantic in less than six days. Corporal Tanner Talk.s There have been several estimates of Corporal Tanner printed in the newspapers, hut the World is able to print this morning an estimate of I'm- ncr from Tanner himself. The reporter approached the great surplus reducer with deference, as he saw from a distance that Tanner was a man of vast consequence. The sub ject was led up to gradually, and final- the corporal nnbosomed himself as fol lows : "In many respects I think I resem- Caesar. I don’t refer so much to per sonal appearances as to general char acter and ability. Caesar was not a handsome man. Some of his military campaigns I cannot approve of as a soldier, hut, on the whole, he did well, and made but few mistakes. 1 can sec where I could have done different ly in his place, hut, taking him all and all, he was more like me than any other figure in history. Some of my friends think that in style of and mental character I resemble Na poleon, hut I can’t say as 1 regard this as a compliment. Had I been in command at Waterloo, things would have been different, I can assure you. ’ Corporal Tanner looked into a handsome mirror which hung over his desk, and went on : “Ip force of character I am much like the old German emporer, though the emporer had his weak points, while I have none. It makes me sick to hear people talk about the ability of Bismark as a statesman. Bisntarkjs a schoolboy alongside of me. I have such contempt ior Gladstone as a pub lic man, that I doubt that I could bring myself to speak to him were he to crawl into this office this minute.” The corporal ducked his head to his own image in the glass and continued . "I don’t mind telling you, but not for publication, ot course, that Ilarri- roms a weak sister- The administra tion would founder bclore supper time, if it wasn’t for yours truly. I am the only man aboard who knows how to run the ship, and you bet I run her, too. What’s Blaine and them fellers 2 Darn me if I haven't more brains than than the whole posse comitatus. Coming as this docs, it may he re garded as authentic.—New York Jour nal. An Unwise Resolution. A resolution was adopted by the recent State Alliance convention, not to sell cotton for loss than twelve and one-half cents per pound. This ap plies to the present crop. The reso lution is neither wise nor practical. It is right that the farmers should get the highest price possible for cot ton, yet it is invading the individual’s rights to say that he shall not take less than a certain price lor what is clearly his own property. Such resolutions arc sure to be bro ken, because they arc in conflict with a A few years ago a delegation from Ohio, with John Sherman at their head, marched through Georgia. In this year of our Lord, a delegation lront Georgia is marching through Ohio. But they are bearing emblems of peace, not of war. This is as it should be. Everyone w ill regret to learn ol the serious mishap to Dr. I!. II. Tucker. He would he a great lo.-s to the church, the State, and the people o! the whole country, lie i- a bold and original thinker, and justly ranks among the foremost men in Georgia. It is announced that Miss Marcliand, the Chicago young lady who is ambi tious to go over Niagara falls in a barrel, left Chicago a day or two ago, with the attention of attempting that very dangerous feat. Somebody should restrain this very foolish young woman. —News. But won't there he a splash, when the Chicago girl's pedal extremities strikes the water below ? To Arms! The dreadful drum heat and blare and blast of tin: trumpet call to arms, is heard from the Alps to the Rhine, from the Volga to the Seine. All Europe appears to he arming. The hostile attitude of Russia toward Ger many, the strained relations between France and Germany, the trouble in Crete, all combined, give little hope of continued peace. It appears to be a difficult thing for European nations to get along without sonic blood letting occasionally. Bleeding of nations, as well as of patients by the doctors, has long since been condemned. certain provision of the constitution, in regard to property rights. A reso lution and a request are widely differ ent in meaning. The one is intended to be mandatory and the other is not. Had the convention confined itself to a request that no'cotton of the present crop be sold for less lhan twelve and one-half cents, it would have kept clearly within the bounds ot its author ity. The above is from one ol the staunchest Alliance papers in the State, the Quitman Press. A Confedeate Reunion- Quitman, (ft..

LATEST TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. DR. H. H. TUCKER PROBABLY FATALLY INJURED. No Extra Session of Congress—Another Chapter in the Hawes Murder—John L. Sullivan Will Run For Congress --The Condition of the Crops. Washington, Sept. 7.—After a lengthy dscussion of the subject, to day, it is understood that the cabinet decided ihat at present, there was there was nothing making it cither de sirable or necessary to call an extra session of congress. Birmingham, Ai.a., Sept. 8.—Fan nie Bryant, the quadroon accused of complicity with Hawes in the murder of Mrs. Hawes and little Irene, last December, was tried Friday and Sit urday. The jury was out until late to day, when they returned a verdict of guilty, fixing her punishment at im prisonment for life. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 8.—Dr. II. II. Tucker, cditoi of the Christian Index, and ex chancellor of the State univer sity, had a terrible accident at his home on Capital avenne’ at 2 o’clock this morning, and it is' feared that he cannot survive his injuries. He had been very restless, passing a wakeful night, and about 2 o’clock, left his bed and sat in the window to get the benefit ol the air. It is supposed that lie went to sleep in that position and fell out. Ni:vv Yiikk, Sept. 7.—John L. Sullivan has written a letter to the Sun, announcing his intention to run for Congress. In the document he say.-: “A good deal has hecn said about my becoming a caudidate for Congress. 1 write to say that after, thinking the matter over, I have de cided that when the time comes to elect a new Congrcssmaiyn Boston, I will he a candidate on the democratic ticket, if the nomination is offered to me.” Washington, Sept. 7.—The weather crop bulletin of the Bignnl service for the past week contains the following information. The week ending Sept. 7 was slightly cooler than usual in the sotithern states. There has been an excess of rain fall from the laid regions southward to the gulf coast. Heavy rains ex tended over Georgia, Northern Flori da, and the western portions of the Carolina*. The week continued dry along the Atlantic coasts and only light showers occurred at the close of the week over the "Middle Atlantic states. T1IK COTTON C'ROr. I11 the West Gulf states, including Texas, Arkansas and Lottisana, the weather was generally favorable for cotton, except in some localities, where rain retarded picking. The general effect of the weather for the week in this section was to leave the growing crops in an improved condi tion. The cotton crop was damaged slightly in Tennessee, but the condi tion of the soil has been improved, and the outlook is better. The damage to the crop from worms in Arkansas is not as great as was anticipated, hut considerable damage has resulted to the crop from this source in Mississippi. In the Caro linas the weather was favorable, cot- loti jfeking is in progress, and there is a prospect of a fair average crop. A Balloon Bears off a Body. l’OKTt.ANi), Ore., Sept. 8.—Avery exciting and thrilling incident occurred here this evening, l’rof. I’. II. Red mond, an aeronaut, was to make an ascension here this evening, in a hot air balloon. Just as the large air ship sailed away skyward, a lad about 12 years old, named Eddie Hill, became entangled in the ropes attached to the trapeze. His neck was caught in a halt noose and the boy could not ex tract himself, lie clung desperately to the ropes with both hands, and by winding them around both arms man aged to save himself from falling and from choking to death. The bal loon rose over 1,000 feet and drifted several miles away to the southeast, finally coming down as light as a feath er and landing the lad without a scratch. In his testimony at the hjaglc trial Judge Sawyer said “Mrs. Terry merely twitched his hair where it was short.” Slip certainly had hint “where^the Hair was short.’’ No Fight Yet. The principals, Messrs. Huff and # Patterson, failed to get together in Alabama, though-both no doubt tried to do so. Mr. Huff has returned to Macon, and Mr. Patterson will turn up in Atlanta. A dispatch from Co lumlnis, referring to Mr. Huff, says: Before ho departed, however, he denounced Mr. Patterson as a scoun drel and a coward for failing to show up. lie said he would compel the man to come to the scratch. “He will stand before ntc nr he will retract what he said,” were his last words be fore leaving. Both are fighting men, and the chances are—unless an amicable ad justment is brought about by friends —that they will yet meet and fight it out. Farm for Sale.
