There were several lively passages at anils. “Mars Bill,” Buff was of course one of the principal advocates of the original appropriation of his committee and in his clear indecisive way handled •ome of the speakers with gloves iff. 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 allow Col.
