What sweet music they are making in this city for those citizens who love the city and have an abiding confidence in her future. Athens is prospering now in every line of business, and her citizens are laying up their money io good, commo dious, and comfortable homes. Stores are being built and the busi ness portion of the city is bein~ dotfc d with imposing structures. It seems that during the last five or six years the city has taken on new life, and she is forging to the front to-day more rapidly than ever. The city assessors making their re turns for the last year report one hun dred and etgbty-one new houses as having been constructed or as being In process of construction m Athens for the year ending April 1st 1891. These houses are scattered in every section of the city and are owned by all clashes of cit izens. The East Athens people are building as much as any other clas- o citizens. The hills across the river are being dot ted here and there with nice, comfort able homes owned by the workingmen. The tolling bre id-winner has learned that be can best promote the interests of his family and bi3 city by investing in real estate and building thereon nice little homes.

There are to be four large alliance rallies in the State during July, and they are to be held at Columbus, At lanta, Americns and Athens. Athen’s day is the 16th. On that day every farmer, and everybody else interested in the affairs of the Alliance within a ra dius of a hundred miles of Athens will be here to join in the festivities of the occasion. All the prominent allianceman in the State will be here as well as some offi cers of the National Alliance. Addresses are to be made on this oc casion by President Polk of the Nation- ‘ Alliance, Sockle3s Jerry, who is now member of Congress, Mrs. Leech, a female alliance lecturer, who ie said to have done more to de feat Ingalls than any other who opposed him, Hon. L. F. Living ston, Mr. Gantt and others. The occasion will be a most interest ing one, and people will be here from ten counties around. There will be ire p<H>ple here than ever before. In regard to this gathering Mayor Brown said on yesteraay: My idea is that tbe city and citizens should do everything in their power for tbe meeting of these farmers, and extend them every courtesy in their power. “They ought to obtain some conven ient and comfortable place for tbe meet ing, say. the park, and erect a speakers stand, and arrauge seats for the audi ence, for there will be a large one. -The city should charter the street railroad and electric cars for _ that day Oi make arrangements with Mr Voss by whictr the farmers could be hauled free, and the whole town sh >wn them. “The farmers and their friends will in all probability have a basket dinner, but I think it would be the proper thing for the citizens to have a grand barbecne on the occasion, and show the farmers every attention possible.” Mayor Brown is right, and the idea to have the trades’ display in this con nection is one of the best which has been advanced in a longtime for the welfare of Athens. Tbe largest of crowds will come to the city for both the rally and festival, and there is no bigger adver tisement or help to the progress of a - town than to draw within her gates the crowds for miles around on au occasion like this. It is the geneial wish of the people to have the festival as an advertisement, and in honoi of the completion uf the G. C. & N. toad to Athens.

Ark my prediction. If the people’s party is endorsed by the alliance con vention of Georgia, or at the convention to be held in February next, this Btate will give it at least 50,000 majority. “Cleveland’s administration, the poli ticians and the . partisan press are re sponsible for this disaffection in the ranks of Georgia democrats. We have elected only one democratic president since the war, and he vetoed the silver bill, thus playing into the hands of the Wall street money tyrants. Again, the nomination thein seventh district agaiust the alliance nominee of the party; the Douglasville convention that endorsed a republican candidate over Colonel Livingston; and the can didacy of Haskell in South Carolina against Tillman, proved to the farmeis that the oldjpolitical rulers were not their friends, and would imperil the FOR GOVERNOR. H. VICTOR NEWCOMB INSANE. McKinley Nominated Amid Cheers and Enthusiasm. Columbus, O., June 18.—Tbe first dav of the Republican state convention of Ohio opened bright and clear. The proceedings of the day were oj ened by prayer, after which the re port of the committee on credentials was was presented and adopted. The coinminittee on permanent organ ization reported, amid applause, the name of Gen. Asa S. Bnshnell, of dark county, for permanent chairman of the convention, and E. J. Kessinger, of Athens, for permanent secretary. Chair man BnshneU’s address was brief. Nominations were declared in order and ex-Govemor Foraker arose to pre sent the nameof McKinley for governor. At the tdghtof the familiar figure of the ex-governor and sturdy campaigner the convention fairly went mad with en thusiasm. For over a minute the ap plause and cheers reverberated through the Immense building, while Foraker bowed smilingly to the compliment. He placed considerable force upon the issues of the campaign and spoke at length of the many things the party had at stake. A United States senator was to be elected, and it was to be decided whether or not the Ohio Republicans would furnish a name at the head of the ticket in the coming national contest. His reference to Mr. McKinley was greeted with rounds of applause, and closing he stated: I move you, Mr. Chairman, that the rules of this convention be suspended, and that, by acclamation, we nominate to be our candidate for governor, that brilliant statesman and soldier and orator, Y.’illium McKinley. [Prolonged^ cheers.] . Col. Robert Harlan, the colored orator of Cincinnati, seconded Maj. McKinley’s nomination, "on behalf of 80,000 colored voters of Ohio. ” With one wild, hilarious cheer of affirmation the convention declared Maj. McKinley"nominated for governor by acclamation, and a committee was appointed to apprise him of his nomina tion and escort him to the hall. _ His appearance was the signal for an other outburst of enthusiasm. ” I now have the pi Asure, ” said the One of Walt Street’s Boldest Speculators In an Asylum. New York, June 19.—It was an nounced that H. Victor Newcomb, one of Wall street’s boldest speculators, luyj been placed in a private insane asylum. He is not violently insane, but is suffer ing from softening of the brain, and on the advice of his physicians his family has placed him in a retreat Mr. Newcomb’s malady is said to be hereditary. His mother, who had been a sufferer from kleptomania, one day be came violent). insane and attempted to kill her five children. She succeeded in throwing three of the youngest of her children oat of a third-story window of her house in Louis villa. They struck an iron railing below and were instantly killed. Mrs. Newcomb tried to Bn Victor and his brother, but the child ren’s nurse had arrived in time to throw a mattress on the ground below the win dow, so that the hoys were not killed by the faU. The unfortunate woman was committed to McLean insane asytnm at Somerville, Masa., where she was main- tainedsby her husband for thirty-five years. The Kentucky law did not re cognize insanity as a ground for divorce bat after his wife had been oodfined in the asylum twenty-five years, Newcomb procured a change in the statue, which enabled him to obtain a divorce. They Deny the Change. Nalhville, Tenn., June 19.—At torneys. for John B. Stetson, the cele brated hatmaker, filed an important bill in the United States circuit court against Handley Bros. Ss Co., wholesale merchants of this city. In the bill it is alleged that Handley Bros. & Co., have been selling an inserior quality of goods, stamped with Stetson s name and trade mark, but manufactured by another man. An injunction is asked to stop this practice, and it is also sought to re cover all profits that have accrued from the alleged deception. Members of the firm deny that they have been guilty of any snen practice. success of that party and the supremacy _ ________ of the white race to overthrow them.. chairman, "of introducing to you the again, the vindictive spirit distinguished soldier and statesman, Said Mr. Pat Calhoun yesterday: is will take an “Of course the railroads active interest in the improvement of the Savanoah harbor. And I believe that Savannah has an opportunity now that, if she will actively seize, will se cure this deep water. “If you will glance at this map,” he aid, pointing to a large railroad maps of the United States that hung close by, ‘you will see that the Terminal system, in connection with the Missouri Pa cific, gives a through line from Port land, Ore., on tbe Columbia river, to Savannah.” ‘If you could unite all interests in Georgia in an active movement to se cure deep water for this port,” Mr. Calhoun added, “I entertain no doubt that the result aimed at would be at tained. I am sure that the railroads will do all in their power to accom- ilish this, and will use their best ef- rts to attain that end.” Then again, the vindictive manifested by certain leading so-called democratic papers in Georgia against the alliance has added to the estrange ment of the farmers from the party with which they have so long affiliated. The residents of our towuB and cities of the state do not know the deep un dercurrent that is setting in throughout the country against the old parties. - ‘Only last Monday while in Athens, met representatives from a number of counties in Northeast Georgia, and without a single exception they report ed their, people as being generally in favor of a new party. The Georgia al- liancemcn have beeu the backbone of the democracy in our state. Thoy feel that they have been unjustly discrimi nated against in the administration of our national affairs, and from this day on their motto will be, ‘Measures be fore men, principles above all things.’ “The alliance leaders in our state are doing their very best to reconcile the differences between their members and the democratic party. “The politicians aud partisan press demand that alliancemen repudiate their principles and this I know they will not do. They will demand their Georgia needs just such terminal fa cilities as this project will afford, and it is hoped that it will be pushed to success. adoption. “The man who ridicules the demands or doubts the strength ef the Georgia in the THE CLARKE RIFLES. neous one, and no better way of reviv ing it can possibly be found* than the oue suggested. The Alliancemen have passed a resolution to act in harmony with the city in making tbe occasion a grand success, and the union of tbe two will make such a gala day as Athens has not seen for a long, long time. This will show the farmers too that the peo ple of Athens are in thorough sympathy with their efforts. By all means let’s have the feetival. It is the desire of the people, of the merchants, and of everybody. Euter- ; >rise shows up a town and does more : or it than anything on tbe face of the earth, and Athens surely has the right sort of it. _ Many of the merchants and buiness men have expressed themselves as heartily in favor of it, and have urged Mayor Biown to call a public meeting of the citizens to arrange for a perfection of the plan, and means of putting it into execution. The meeting will be held at an early date, and all interested should take measures at onoe to prepare themselves for the occasion. Let’s make tbe festival a success. Making Active Preparations for the Camp at Chlckamauga. The rifles are getting ready for.tfaeen- campment. Capt. Owens has them iu charge and is doing some good work in drilling them up to the proper stan dard. Many of the regular men will be una ble to go on account of business engage ments, so others have enlisted to go with the company and remain through tbe encampment. These are now"drill ing every night or two in order to be in good trim by Hie time when they leave. The company will leave Athens on the 29th and will spend a week in camp. Several Georgia boys have enlisted to go with the company who live outside of Athens. Among them are Messrs Eu gene Black and John Boston. The company will be greatly benefit- ted by this weeks instruction, and will return in excellent trim. HISSING THEFRINCE. OFF FOR VIRGINIA. Col. and Mrs. Charles M. Snelllng Leave for a Bridal Tour. Col. and Mrs. Charles M. Snclling left yesterday for Virginia where they will spend some time before returning to Athens. The wedding which occured Thurs day afternoon was a quiet one, only the relatives of the bride being in atten dance. Dr. Lane performed the ceremony in an impressive manner. The groom is one of the most efficient professors in the University, while the bride carries with her the best wishes of a large circle of admiring friends. How the Welsh Treated an Attempt to Play “God Bless the Prince of Wales.” London, June 18.—The popular crusade against tbe Prince of Wi shows no signs of abating in strength or bitterness. After the lecture deliv ered last night at Carnavon, Wales, b; alliancemen, is certainly groping dark. At the next election they will sweep our state like a cyclone and carry every county with not more than a dozen ex ceptions. You bad as well try and stay the raging waters until their force is spent as to stop or retard the onward march of the alliance until their ends are achieved. “The nomination of Mr. Cleveland would meau the formation and triumph of a new party in Georgia. It would destroy every bridge between the farm ers and the democratic party. I see that Mr. Cleveland says he will not make the race if the masses of the south ern people are against him. I will make this proposition: He caD send to Georgia any representative he wants, and I will take him through the state aad.i3t him question 1,000 of the first al- liancemen that we meet—I mean genu ine wool-hat alliancemen, and not of the plug-hat. caucus brand—and if weeau Hud of that numbar five men who will say they will support him if nomi nated, I will agree to acknowledge my mistake.” “How will The Southern Alliance Farmer stand in the event that a third party is endorsed by your members in Georgia?” “Our paper is the organ of the State Alliance—a non.political organization. We stand square and flat-footed upon tbe Ocala platform, and will battle for its success. We are with tbe people, and will stand by the people to the end. We will do everything in our power to reconcile the differences between the Georgia alliancemen and democratic party with which they have so long af filiated. But if the issue is overdrawn, your nominee for governor, and your next governor, William McKinley, Jr." Again the enthusiasm of admirers of tbe distinguished Ohioan burst forth, and 1,000 frantic, cheering, straggling Republicans waved their hats and fans, i xrtinded with their canes and re-echoed ihe name of " McKinley 1 McKinley I" The hero of the day received his honors mohcstly. Simply bowing his acknowledgements, he made a brief eech upon lines of his address before >e muss meeting. In his speech accepting the nomina tion, Mr. McKinley referred to the com ing senatorial and national elections, to the Republican party in Ohio, to "Presi dent Harrison’s wise administration,” and to the "McKinley tariff measure” in a characteristic Republican argu ment. The committee on resolutions report ed a platform which was enthusiasti cally adopted. The platform is built on the usual Republican lines. It endorses high tariff and McKinley as the "ablest exponent of that principle;” says some thing* about the protection of laborers, and devotes a special plank to wool pro tection; endorses the amended coinage act,-"by which the entire product of American silver mines is added to the currency of the people;” has the usual "free ballot and fair count” pland; de mands the enforcement of rigid laws against the influx of vicious and crimi nal Masses of foreigners; favors restora tion to the public domain of unearned railroad grants; wants more pensions; endors s Harrison’s administration, and especially the policy of reciprocity; "commends” the patriotic services of John Sherman and his colleagues; says a good word for Secretary of the Treas ury Foster, and then condemns Camp bell's administration and everything else democratic. The ticket' was then completed aa fol lows: Lieutenant Governor Andrew L. Har ris of Preble county, was nominated on first ballot. He is a member of the Farmers’ Alliance. Auditor of State E. W. Poe, the pres ent auditor, was renominated by accla mation. Supreme Judge Marshall J. Williams of Fayette county, nominated by accla mation. Attorney General J. K. Richards of Lawrence county, nominated on first ballot. State Treasurer W. T. Cope of Cleve land, nominated on the first ballot. Charles E. Groce, member of the Sensational Arrests Expected. Indianapolis, Ind., June 19.—Coroner Manker. has received a report from Chemist Lotz regarding the contents of Mrs. Nancy Wright’B'vtomach, the old lady dying some two weeks ago under very suspicions circumstances. Mrs. Wnght was tbe third member of the ly who had died, and it was charged that she had been poisoned, she saying to a member of the family just before death: "That last dose of medicine is killing me. ” The chemist found large quantities of copper in the stomach, and it is now certain death did not result from natural causes. Sensational ar rests are expected. SHQRT ITEMS. glidin' „ i William M. Slaton. Prof. Slaton is a £ graduate of the University in the cas of ’73 and well merits the A. M. degree ON TO WASHINGTON.

The object of their visit to the capitol is to confer with Secretary Noble and secure a settlement of the appiopria tions for the State college.
