one of the principal advocates of the
original appropriation of his committee
and in his clear indecisive way handled

Humphreys, of Brooks,
was the principal target.
Mr. Humphreys Ja a young lawyer
from Brooks county who is just aching
lor a chance to swallow not only the
Sub-treasury but anything else an Al-
lianceinen may advocate—so anrri^f is
ha to pose as the leader of the farmers.
One point he made yesterday in bis
speech against this appropriation was
that there were no farmers on the board
of trustees. He laying the distinction
of being the only lawyer who voted
with the farmers on the foolish lawyer’s
bill the other day. It was pretty hard
pulling for some of the other* to puli
away from, the farmers o» that, but
Humphreys was the only one who
could stick. Well, that gives some
idea of the man. He had refused to
