SHAME ON YOU. LARRY «
What in the world is the matter
with Larry Gantt again? In a re
cent issue of the Southern Alliance
Farmer (a paper we always read with
peculiar interest) we find the follow
ing editorial utterances:
There is an augean stable in our
State to be cleaned out, and it is filled
with liars and slanderers. They are
the refuse of the Democratic party,
and fully realize that their only hope
for political salvation is to crush the
Farmers’ Alliance out of existence
They dare net meet us in honorable
debate, and so have resorted to the
vilest, fonlest and most cowardly
weapon in existence—the tongue of
the slanderer. No lie is so impreb
able or too filthy for these creatures
to circulate, just so it is against the
Alliance leaders. Like a fl^ck of
carrion-crows, they hover over and
around our headquarters, with the
hope of finding a scrap of oflal on
which to gorge the public. They
are as unscrupulous as they are de
based, and falsehood is their mother
Now stop ! Larry, pause just here
and catch a second breath. And
while you catch your wind listen:
Such editorials as this will do the
Alliance more harm than good. It
is certainly very true that there are
some politicians in Georgia who arc
doing the Alliance no good in their
deeds and words Of opposition. Sure
ly, this is to be deplored since the
Alliance is essentially a worthy in
But little harm can come of these
few opponents. There are not many
of them—very few. Generally speak*
ing the whole South and the State of
Georgia are chrvstallized for the Al
liance. City folks are not down on
the Alliance, and never have been.
Any sensible man who keeps his wiia
knows this to be true. It is folly to
preach any tactics to the contrary.
It is worse than folly, because it
stirs up strife and hard feeling where
no sncli sentiments exist.
The Banner stakes much faith in
simple honesty. We are all working
with each other for the upbuilding of
the State. Let us go about it fairly
and zealously ; and best of all, let
us go hand in hand, and heart to
heart, with no frown upon our faces
and no malice in our hearts.
Larry, yoa ought to be ashamed
of youaself !
THE BANNER ENDORSED.
The railroad question, so far as it
I bears upon the interests of Georgia
will soon be settled. The legislature
will adjourn before the ides of No
vember draw near, perhaps, and
surely some bill will be passed be
fore adjournment that will have the
effect of settling the matter for weal
or for woe.
Be that as it may, Tnx Banner
feels called upon here and now to
express its gratitude for the many
pieaaing words of endorsement that

Brunswick has been allied with the
interior heretofore in wars against the
urjust discrimination of railroads.
These discriminations are generally
made in favor of Savannah and against
Brunswick, as well as such interior
points as Athens, Rome, Americas, Co
Iambus, etc This fact usually brings
Brunswick into sympathy with them.
Brunswick has been disposed to look
for fair treatment from the Richmond
Terminal, but if she is not to receive it
she will see what can be done to com
pel it.—Brunswick Times.

AGAINST THE BILL.
Atlanta, G i., September, 30.—[Spe
cial.]— 1 Ti.e Berner bill discussion to
day was rather desultory and devoid of
sensations. This was something of a
surprise. Col. John Goodwin oi

There was a general attitude of ex
pectancy when Mr. Huff was recog
nized. Mr. Huff is always short and to
the point, and is sure of an audience.
He made a strong speech against the
Berner bill, laying strong stress on the
fact that there is no demand for such
legislation. One point he made was
interesting and had an effect. Col

that today, and said that tor himself

He said three years ago, when he first
started out into legislative life, there
shot like a rocket across the legislate
sky what was known «s the Olive bill.
He voted for the Olive bill then, but
after mature consideration he had come
to the conclusion that he was wrong
and now favored the consolidation,
he believed it was be stfor the country
He spoke for forty minutes, and at
the conclusion of his speech Mr. Calvin
of Richmond moved to postpone the
consideration of the measure until to
morrow morning immediately after the
reading of the journal.
It was thought that a vote would be
reached today on the bill, but it is not
now regarded as likely, as a number of
the members are loaded with speeches',
and there is a disposition to bear from
everybody. The morning war con
Burned in speaking, and it is probable
that there will be no vote
before tomorrow morning, possibly not
before tomorrow afternoon.
There seems little doubt of the Chap
pel substitute as amended being adop
ted and the sentiment in the House
seems all that way. Berner has spoken
in favor of his bill and Warner Hill and
Bill Davis are expected to talk on the
tn the senate.
The pilotage bill is being much dis
cussed among the senators and it seems
probable that it will not pass though
Senator Lamb is a strong advocate of
it. The Brunswick pilots haven
made as much money as they expected
and seem to be the sole advocate of this
bill which is calculated to greatly in
crease their stipends without any in
crease of work.
The senate passed the finance com

most of its time on local legislation—
incorporating towns, granting charters

machinery, the extremely low price of white paper, and the great competition iu the book
trade, we are enabled to offer to our subscribers and readers a set of Dickons’ works at a
price which all can afford to pay. Every home in the land may now be supplied with a set
