“No Fence” In Georgia.
The last report of the commissioner
of agriculture for Georgia gives a list
of those counties in the state which
have adopted the “116 fence law,” and
of the practical operations of tho law.
It appears that at the time of cx-
Commissioner Jones’ report upon
this subject, in 1882, seventy-three
counties had adopted “no fence,”
three had rejected it by vote, and in
sixty-four no election had been held.
It is not to be expected that in a pro
gressive state like Georgia any of the
counties which had adopted the law
would repudiate it, and it docs not
appear that they have, but the in
crease in “no fence” counties from
1882 to 1880 lias not been 'as great as
it should have been. All of the
counties were not included in the re
ports to Commissioner Henderson the
other day, but of those included
seventy-five had adopted the “no
fence” law, four had rejected it, and
in fifty no election had been held.
In North Georgia there arc thir
teen counties in which the “no fence”
law is in operation, three in which it,
has been rejected, and twelve in
which no election had been held. In
Southwest Georgia fourteen counties
have adopted ‘.‘no fence,” and seven
teen have manifested their indiffer
ence or opposition, ns the case may
be, by not holding an election. In
East Georgia seven counties have
adopted “no fence,” and seven have
held no election. The “no fence”
law is not in operation in any of the
counties of Southeast Georgia, hut
forty-one counties in Middle Georgia
reported to Commissioner Henderson
its adoption, and none reported its
rejection or the failure to hold an
election. It is worthy of note that
the farmers of Middle Georgia are
prosperous. Probably they are more
prosperous than those of any other
part oi the state, and they attribute
much of their prosperity to the ope
rations of the “no fence” law.—

The National Association of Colored
Baptists began its annual s-vsion in
this city to-day.
J0I111 Williams, who had been in
the hands of the 1110b at Baxlev, ad-
ised that the colored men must fight
when attacked, if they ever expected
to be a people. “Do you know,” said
lie, “that one negro can scare a dozen
white people? Carry a pistol and use
it on the slightest pretense.”
The entire day was given lip to dis
cussion ot the assault, and an imme
diate resort to arms was about the on

Atlanta, Ga., Eept. 12.—The only
development in the Huff and Patter
son affair, considered important by
gossip, is Mr. Huff"s departure from
tho city to-night. He left on the 7
o’clock train on the Central railroad
with his son, Walter Huff, and his
friend, Capt. Ivoff Sims, for Macon.
Mr. Tatter-son and his second, Tom
Cobb Jacksmi, were about the Kim
ball house to night with apparently no
intention of leaving. It is generally
believed that a meeting is probable,
but the public as well as the newspaper
men, arc in the dark as to where or
when it will occur.

Dear Sir—Your letter tendering
your resignation of the office of com
missioner of pensions lias been re
ceived, and your resignation is ac
cepted to take effect on the appoint
ment and qualification of your succes-
soi. I do not think it necessary in
this correspondence to discuss the
causes which have led to the present
attitude of affairs in the pension office.
You have been kindly and fully ad
vised of my views upon most of these
matters. It gives me pleasure to add,
that, so far as 1 am a’vised, your
honor has not at any time been ques
tioned. I beg to renew the cxptx ssion
ot my personal good will.

Wilmington, Del., Sept. 12,—A
Lewes special to the Every Evening
states that no language can picture the
terrible scene along the coast. The
wind is blowing with almost hurricane
fierceness, driving with a lorce that
cuts like hail. The half mile reach of
sand between the town and coast is
tearing away. The ocean bears a
wreckage on every wave. Through
the mist of storm and spray the tat
tered sails and naked masts of a score
of dismantled and deserted vcsslcscan
be dimly seen. Since Monday night,
the storm has raged without abate
ment. Yesterday’s dawn showed 100
vessles which had sought refuge ofl
The refuge was insufficient. By
11 o’clock the sea broke over the
breakwater, wrecked the telegraph
station, carried away the big fog bell
and rushed shoreward, sweeping away
the steamboat pier. The United
States marine hospital was dashed
from its moorings and sent spinning
down the beach. The Lewes life
saving station, forty feet above high
water, was flooded and its’ foundations
Huglieyville. a suburb between the
town and coat, was submerged and its
200 inhabitants fled for life, leaving all
their possessions behind.

men arc having a royal time in Ohio.

and unrivaled resources, everywhere

Nearing the Danger Line-
The incendiary utterances of one
John Williams, colored, in the Bap
tist Indianapolis, Ind., convention,
yesterday, should, and we believe it
will, receive the condemnation of
every,fair minded colored man in the
South. It is such men as Williams,
backed by the incendiary talk of the
Canfields, Forakers and Chandlers,
who may precipitate trouble. The
negroes and whites of the South would
get along peaceably and amicably,
were it not for these republican agi
tators. There has been more race
rows during the brief period of the
present republican admistration, than
during the whole four years of Cleve
land's administration. And none will
dare say but that the colored people of
the South had their every right lully
guarded and protected under the late
democratic administration. Repub
licans make it a business to stir up
strife between the races. It is their
stock in trade. They may carry this
beyond the danger line. Conserva
tive men, North and South, see the
danger, and will do everything possi
ble to avert it. The man, or men,
who would systematically and mali
ciously foment and encourage race
troubles at the South, is an enemy of
bis race, and de’serves the severest
condemnation. It should he noticed
that this incendiary and murderous
harangue was delivered at the home
of the president of the United States.
The teachings of Mr. Harrison, and
his republican allies, are endangering
the peace and safety of a people who
arc trying to live peacefully together.
These bloody shirt slirickcrs may as
well understand first as last, that the
South will protect herself. She will
do this at all hazards.
The administration has unloaded
Tanner. But will it put a better man
in his place? The fact is, Tanner was
only carrying out Harrison’s “apothe
cary scales’’ idea. In any event the
reckless squandering of the people’s
money has been temporarily checked.
But other leaks will break out. A
republican considers it his bounden
duty to “reduce the surplus.” Tanner
is only a typical republican.

get along without crutches. I also
had neuralgia in the head.. First-class
physicians did me no good. Then I
tried B. B. B., and its affects were
magical. I cheerfully recommend it
as a good tonic and quick cure.”
Mrs. Matilda Nichols, Knoxville,
