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 tongue. 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 stitution. 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 | have been spoken in commendation |it8 utterances against the iniqui is methods employed by the rail- id powers in bottling up the com., imercial and industrial freedom of the people of Georgia. Fr >m far and near, we have been .gratified to receive letters approving | our course. Some of these letters from railroad men who know the ith that such contracts as have estly been made were illegal and Iculated to very serionslv cripple i Interests of our greav State. Banner has sought to make unwarranted fight upon the rail- ia. Trivia), indeed, would be ir profession of loyalty to the pub- lid we move in this matter upon i impulse of prejudice against the ilroads. Gratified to a degree that is itself ling, by the evidences of ap- , on the part of the public, The desires to return thanks i publicly to the press and to the ny who have verbally and by let* graciously praised it for its nse of the people's industrial and liberty. • Athens is about to get Into a fight with the Kichmond and Dan ville Notwithstanding all that has been said and done to avoid it, it looks like Georgia is to have a great war with the railroads.—Brunswick Times. And if the Georgia legislature doesn’t fix things next Tuesday in the action it takes upon the Berner bill then the fight will begin in dead earnest. Are you ready down there on the seacoaat? —Athens Banner . „ 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. “Be ready gods! With all thy thun derbolts dash him to pieces!” The Atlanta Constitution, whose ob trusive championship of Judge Crisp has done much to defeat his ambition to be Speaker, thinks he should be re cognized as a tariff-reform leader be cause he is now making speeches in fa vor of tariff reform. Judged by this standard, every Democratwbo expects to remain in public life is entitled to unearned promotion at the hands of bis p fa .ty. It is largely due, howevar, to the work of Me. Miixs, extending through many laborious years of devo tion to the campaign of education, that Judge Crisp and other Congressmen who like to hear themselves. described as “conservative” have at last been broughtte the point of admitting that the tariff issue is, as the Constitution reports J udgr Crisp to have said, “the all-important question of the day.’’— St. Louis Republic. Come off! The world at large knows that Mr. CRisr has always been a zeal ous worker for tariff reform. Cease your falsifying. Do! Mr. Stead, whose arithmetic is as original and amusing as anything be has ever done, calculates that over 800,- 000,000 official prayers are annually of fered for the Prince of Wales.

DEAFNESS CAN’T BE CURED by local applications as they ean not reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to core Deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the raucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken oat and this tube restored to its normal condition, bearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed conditon of the mucous surfaces.

A clergyman in New South Wales complains that out of 117 marriages whi".h be has celebrated within the last year twenty-nine called him out of bed between 11 at night and 6 in the morn ing. He never knows when he is to have & peaceful night, and all on ac count of a freak of fashion in his pa rish. No man is perfect. No woman is perfect. Regarding female models for artists the critics say that the French are undersized and have bad shoulders; the Germans have not classic faces and too broad hips: the Italians are not well rounded; the English are too tall, and the Spaniards are anatomically de ficient. Larry Gantt, editor of the Southern Alliance Farmer is on the right line when be writes: Let Georgia remodel and build up her State University, and not tear down and demolish' this time-honored institu tion. Let the board of trustees be elected by the legislature, and the far mers predominate. This will insure them a fair return for their money. Speaking of one who was formerly a society queen in Athens the Cum- ming Clarion says: Plucky Mrs. Lipscomb, wife of a Washington, D. C. lawyer drew a pis tol on a gang of men whom her hus band had offended in a speech. She is a Georgian and Georgia grit is the clearest. There are said to be. sixteen species of American trees the wood of which, when well seasoned, will sink into wa ter. The heaviest of these is black ironwood, which is thirty per cent, heavier than water. A specie of oak grows in Texas and New Mexico which when green will sink almost as quickly as iron. Arranged for the Athens Dispensary. The commissioners referred the mat ter of arranging rules for the govern ment of the Dispensary to the secretary who prepared the following which were adopted: 1. The Dispensary shall be open every day, except Sundays, election days and legal holidays, from sunrise to sunse . 2. Any sober person of lawful age (except students of the University) may purchase spirituous, vinous or malt li quora in any qu&nity not less chan one pint or more than five gallons, provided it is not bought to sell again. If the manager believes any person is buying liquors to resell, he shall report the fact to the commissioners who will take ac tion as required by the law. 3. All spiritous liquors sold by thejdis pensary shall oe analyzed as required by the law. and offered for Rale only in sealed packages. Whenever an original is opened its entire contents shall at Oi ce be transferred to sealed packages Vinous and malt liquors will be sold in the packages in .which they are re ceived from the manufacturers. 4. AU spiritous liquors shall be sold at a profit of fifty per cent (50) on the in voice cost of same..

September breeze whispers of an early winter. PRESTO, CHANGE! With the Rising Sun Begins a New Era. At sunrise this morning the city Athens changes position on the liquor question. The Dispensary system will be start ed as an untried experiment, and much depends upon its management as to whether or not it will be a success. If the law is strictly enforced, and there is. no reason why it should not be since it is in auch reliable hands, then it will be a success. The average Athenian citizen will necessarily feel rather queer today when it dawns upon his mind that for the first time in over six years he can walk up to the counter and buy the ardent legually. The United States license is here, the whiskies have been analyzed by Prof. H. C. White and all pronounced to pure; the spirits have been bottled up and sealed and made ready for sale; and the rules have been adopted by which the Dispensary la to be controlled. And this morning with the rising sun, the doors of the Dispensaiy will fly open and the thirsty Athenian can wet his whistle. Presto? change! 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 Fnlton offered the Berner bill and sup ported the amended Chappell substi- ute. Dr. Hand of £ak> r took the same ground. Mr. Hartridge of Savannah spoke at aomeleug«b against the Berner bill,giv ing ia the course of hi< speech some in teresting figures on the features of the case which off :ot. many corpora tions theumouts of stock in these roads which Georgians hold. Mr. Hartiidge’s speech was an able one, but hia reputation oi humorist has a tendency to prevent his beiug taken seriously and he was not given the attention he deserved. 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 Hqjfis a member of the Railroad In vestigating Committee which was ap pointed by this House. He referred to that today, and said that tor himself there had been before that committee no evidence that proved the necessity for such legislation that propoeed by the gehtleman from Monroe. He wanted it understood that he did not reveal any committee secrets when he spoke as be did, but wa talking merely from his standpoint He thought there was no necessity for such legislation. In the afternoon, Dr. Chappell, of Laurens, took the floor. He said that he realized that this railroad question was an important one but not a hard one to solve, when we get near to it, it does not seem so mtri cate When the constitution was adopted we bad no consolidated railroad; bin times have changed, and the constitu tion has not; but we must have consoli dated railroads to enable us to join with outside lines. Mi. Gilbert, of Muscogee, spoke next 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 same. line. 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 mittee’s funding bill today but spent most of its time on local legislation— incorporating towns, granting charters and 8) forth. ' —z~- A UTTLEpQIfJt^ Hunting for her Father Here In Ath ens. Last night’s Georgia train brought in as a passenger u little., tfen Year old white girl. She gave her name as Fannie Jones, and said she had come all the way from Rome. A Mr. Sanford, with whom she had been staying, bought her a ticket to Atlan'a, and put her m charge of the conductor. At Atlanta a ticket to Athens was bought and when the train rolled in last night she was taken in charge by Mr J. Flatau. She was hunting for her step-father, Mr. Jim McLochlin, who lives in this city. Mr. Flatau didn’t know anything about M McLochlin, so he carried the little girl to Mrs. A. J. Booth’s on South LumDkin street. Her mother had written to Mr. San ford in Rome to send the child to Ath ens and that she would meet ithere. But she didn’t meet it and the little one bad tc be taken care of by M rs. Booth last night. Mr, McLochlin has been working for Mr N. F. Tilton and will doubtless go after his little step daughter this morn ing.

Cincinnati, Sept. 29.—The 1-year-old baby^of George Wear, who lives on the fourth floor of a tenement lionse at .60 East Pearl street, met with a terrible fall which will probably result fatally. The child was. asleep on a bed which was close against an open window open ing upon a court. It rolled out of the window and crashed through a sky light over _ the hallway in the center of the building. The .child was carried- up stairs unconscious and Dr. Crush was called to attend it. An examina tion showed that no bones were broken, but that severe cuts and serious inter nal injuries had resulted from the ter rible fall Try BLACILORAUGHT tea for Pytpcp*!*- THE ATHENS HARDWARE CO., (SUCCESSORS TO CHILDS NCKICERSON & Co.) nnH'OMT imrMinsRIiiiaSim ANEW MARKET To be Opened by Mr. John Booth.

He will keep on hand a full suppl of fresh and delicious meats of a) kinds. The new market will be opened o- the first of the month. THE COMING ROAD CONGRESS Purposes for Which ft is CaHed and What It Wants to Accomplish. A good deal of interest is being taken in the Southern states road con gress to be held in Atlanta. Oct 28th Secretary W. (4. W hid by, of tin Georgia road congress, in outlining the work to be accomplished by the com ing convention, says: “The object e>f the road congress i not so much to discuss the preseut roa laws in force iu. Georgia as the neces sity of two thi gs: Fitst a peimauen system; second, permanent improvin of ihe public roads. There is a wid difference between working a puhlh road and building one. As at presi u enforced in Georgia, the road laws m i.v do passably well in work ing the roads, but then is no permanency in the work norno8ystem in it. The road con missioners have never studied the ques tion thoroughly, and i-\e i if they had. the law does not give them the funds necessary loput permanent work on th reads. “What desired is permanently im proved roads, according to a well de fined and everlasting system, so that the work done oue year will last fo: years to come. It must be in line witii that done in other parts of the country the succeeding years. “A small force, worked under the direction of a man acquaint 3d with the requirements of a good road, and with improved labor-saving implements and material at hand, systematically and continually, can secure to the people first class roads cheaper than they could be bad under the road laws of Georgia This is true when the permanency of the work is considered “The subjects oue of vital impor tance to all classes It is patent that our system of agriculture must change before it can prosper. “Large farms and the tenant system must go Small farms cultivated on the intensive system by the owners must be the order of the day. But to reach this result these small farmers must have good roads to the markets. The haul ing of large quantities of* produce iu less than can now be done is an element of importance in building up the small farmer. “In this day of rapid transit, trans portation by the common road must not be held back to the place of the past ages. The county needs the in spiring effect of faster and better tran sit.” AGBNT9 FOR SMITH IMPROVED Cotton Gins, Feeders and Condensers. : Vith or without R eV ol v 9 ? heads,with top or .front toedere.

Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. 29.—The fire in the lotvei workings of the Dela ware aud Hudson Canal company’s large Conyugham colliery, in the second ward of this city, is burning fiercely, and all efforts to reach or even get within close proximity to the affected portion have proved unavailing.
