ATHENS BANNER TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 6 1891
the alliance and the democracy.
Those who have whined oat in ad
vance that a Third party was fasten-
ing itself upon the political vitals of
the South, like the hungry vulture
preying upon the sinews of Prome-
theus chained in adamantine bonds
upon the craggy peaks of Mount
Parnassus, ought to be convinced
now that their moody predictions
were as false and as empty as they
were absurd and ridiculous.
The truth is, there will never be a
third party in the South unless by
some strange tatality a vast uprising
and upheaval of popular organiza
tion changes the form of our govern
ment entirely, by destroying the
principles of Democracy upon which
the Republic is formed and establish
ed, trusting to chaos and destruction
to end in the formation of a new
country—a now nation out and out.
The South is the backbone of the
Democracy. The Democracy is the
very life and hope of the country.
1 he South is the hom^of the patriot
The true patriot is the most loyal
Democrat. Therefore,the great heart
of this Republic is the Sooth.
With these few statements setting
forth the environments of the Far
mers’ Alliance, an organization
founded in the South and for the
South, it is easy to see and very safe
to say that the Alliance in the South
could never be anything but an alo
liance of Democrats, an alliance of
patriots, and an alliance, best of all
that has next to its great heart the
memories that cluster about the days
of civil strife, picturing in lrightful
array the dreadful days of recon
struction and negro predominance.
No. The South could never go
asunder. No political gang from
the West can ever disband our
Southern Democracy. The South
will remain solid for more reasons
glroy of an autumn sunset. How
true it is that the beauty and glory
of our lives aie ever before us—al
ways beyond ! How tempting is the
future ! The past is made of caress
ing tears ; the future of longing
«>Tis hope that makes the future bright,
And uiem’ry gilds the past."
GOOD-BYE TO SUMMER.
Summer days are dying away like
the gold in the tinted sky at sunset.
There will be no more heat, no more
dust and suffocation, no more death
and sickness that come of a tainted
atmosphere of summer, no more flee
ing from home to escape the pene-<
traling rays of midsnmmer’s sun—
winter is at hand.
There will be no more sunshine
and festivity, no more happiness at
the mountain resort or along the
pearly sands of the seashore, no more
conquests for the happy-hearted win
some summer girl, no more romance
in the pale light of a Sonthern moor,
no more merriment and mirth for a
season. Summer has gone ' And
thus great Nature has quietly press
ed the button and Father Time has
called a presto change. The seasons
yield, and the leaf which but a day
or two ago grew green with glowing
life is now reddened by the chilling
wiuds of early autumn days. The
resort land which only a week or tw9
since was fairy land itself, is deso
late and drear. The splendid sum
mer hotel has closed its doors and
the echo of the dancing hall has died
away over the mountain side.
.The cities are filling up as former,
ly. Men and women have returned
and gone back to busy life again.
- .^Tr.nde is astir. Everything has ai>
1 air of business once more.
Well might the first days of su
lk tumn be called the saddest of the
r y ear * There is that serious turn in
our lives at that time that brings us
more than ever face to face with our
selves. Retrospection makes us io
linger with caressing regret over the
passing days of summer and the
natural drift of ciroumstances and
of duty force us at the same time to
glance with practical ey b into the
cold, drear days of winter that aic
fast approaching. What has the
summer brought us ? What good
have we done in the great task of
character buildiog assigned all hu
man kind as each season comes and
goes ? As the great curtain goes
down upon the blazing stage of sum
mer does the world applaud as tor
t the part we have played thereon ?
What memories of the summer can
we treasure in oar hearts to jewel in
| the last day on earth our crown of
Soch are the questions that arise
j from retrospection. And then we
! look forward inquiringly beyond the
I nigh peaks that are piled op before
lighted with the splendor and
Editor Pleasant A. Stovall, the ge-
nitl happy hearted editor who so ably
wields the controlling pencil that
guards the policy aud shapes the desti
ny of our esteemed and much honored
cotemporary, the brilliant, sparkling
Augusta Chronicle, for the first time in
his professional career has stepped upon
Editor Stovall has been writing
strong editorials defending the rail
roads in the recent illegal contracts and
leases, bottling np the commercial in
terests of Georgia. Uunder the head
ing "Let The Railroads Alone!" he
has been doing some pretty writing. In
yesterday’s issue, however, he landed
on the aforesaid quicksand. Bis city
editor perhaps not knowing
that a long editorial had gone to the
printers praising the railroads for their
“quick schedules,” and “elegant ap
pointments,” printed a column story
telling of the “outrageous discrimina
tions thrust upon Augusta” by the
Central. It was pitiful in the extreme,
that the editorial and local news story
chanced to come out in the same issue,
and opposite each other in deadly par
The picture was nothing short of lu
dicrous. It pat the joke on Editor
Stovall for there were lettrrs from Au
gusta’s business men denouncing the
“discriminations” so “outrageous.
But. view the picture!
Here is an extract from the editorial
“let the railroads alone.’
The agitation against the railroads in
Georgia we regard as unfortunate.
What is the matter with the railroads?
They give good accommodations and
faithful service. Since the separate
lines have been consolidated there have
been faster schedules, more through
cars, closer connections and lower rates.’
The men who purchased the stock iu
Georgia and Southern rail lines did so
because they had faith in the property
and in the country. Business princi
ples would suggest that these proper
ties be improved and the country
through which the roads run be devl
oped. And this is what has been done.
No one supposed Mr. Inman or Mr.
Calhoun would spend millions to buy
a southern road just for the privilege of
wrt eking it. The moment they become
stockholders they become allies xnd
tupporters of the people in that section.
If they had no other interest here their
railroads holdings would bind them to
Now, gentle reader and a forbearing
public, read an extract from the local
columns of the Chronicle under these
State tax last year was nearly 40
cents on the hundred dollars while
tbirlei idature has saddled a tax of
51 cents per hundred on the people
->t Georgia. The tax rale this year
i higher than it has been since the
war, and that too after our new cap
ital building has been paid for. Last
year Polk county paid $11,000 State
tax, while this year we will pay $15,
821, and that too after an increased
taxable property in the county of
$360 000, and a total State increase
of over $25,000,000. As the taxable
property increases the rate per hnn-
dred ought to decrease, but the pres
ent legislature has been so extrava
gant that notwithstanding a large
increase in the valuation of property,
Polk county will have to pay $4800
more this year than last.
It is a cold, raw day in summer time
that a newspaper man gets left, and
Minister Egan must be a born news
paper m-n. A'* exchange says:
It is now rnmnred that the corres
pondent of the New York II raid, who
furnished such a mignifieent report of
the state of alt'tire in fcbili to that pa
per, is no other than Minister Pat
rick Egan, who did the work for
moneyed consideration, if this is a
fact it proves that Patrick is a hum
mer from taw. He not only lined his
pockets well but also placed his side of
the case as to the charges brought
againt him before the people, with the
result of gaining much sympathy, at
the same time.
WHERE IS MR* WATSON ?
“I have been patient, let me be so yet;
I bad forgotten half I would forget,
Bnt it revives -Oh! would it were my lot
To bo forgetful as I am forgot!”
As the sad, melancholy days of
autumii draw nigh at hand, and pol
itics like forest leaves grow crimson
red, it is not an ilUput question to
ask with deep concern, Where is Mr.
Watson ? Can it be that echo an
swers where ? Look the newspapers
o’er snd o’er; ask it on the farm,
and on the busy street; whisper it
hotel corridors and among the
wiry politicians; search the pages
of cartoon papers ; ask it of his best
friends! Mr. Watson has made his
exit from the stage of Georgia poli«
tics. Perhaps be awaits another
scene. Maybe he has repaired to
he ante-room to take off the robes
of comedy and will appear later in
the arena clothed in classic toga to
play the part of heavy tragedy.
Well, Mr. Watson’s career, after
all, has been one that had some good
in it* Mr. Watson is, perhaps,
better man than he has received
credit for being. He was never found
to be dishonest in his profession of
faith, and snreiy that counts for
much in this day and age of political
flaming headlines : DISCRIMINA
TION! The new central railroad
schedule is an outrage.—Will au-
GU6TA SUBMIT? ETC., ETC.
Here is the extract:
“Augusta and the public at large
are thoroughly disgusted with the new
passenger schedule over the Central
“ The effrosery of the thing
is sublime ” said a prominent
man yesterday. “Read this flourish of
trumpets at the head of it.” He had
in bis hand a schedule in bright red
letters which began as follows:
“Richmond and Danville Railroad
Company. Operating Richmond snd
Danville Railroad’s leased and con
trolled lines, Central Railroad of Geor
gia’s leased and controlled rail and
steamship lines. Improved passenger
train service between Savannah, Millen
and Augusta, in effect Sept. 27,1891
On and after this date the following ex
cellent schedules will be operated:
“ What do you think of that for
cheek and sarcasm,” said he, “when it
is at the bead of a schedule which an
nounces that trains depart from Au
gusta at 9 a. m., and arrive at Savan
nab at 0:20 p. m.; and leave Savannah
at 8:15 a. m. and arrive at Augusta at
5:40 p. m.—9 hours and 25j minutes for
“Now doesn’t it require something
like sublime cheek to call that an “im
proved”, and “excefl^rit” schedule 1
“Not quite fifteen miles! an.h6ur.
“But if the people wWrfinljfc ceratem
plate the schedule ire i idignant, think
of those who try it.
How' is this Editor Stovall? In the
name of common tense <rfo these cbm
plaints justify you in saying “since the
separate lines have been consolidated
there have been faster schedules,
more through cars, closer connkc
tions and lower rates ?
It is a good time to ’fess up and
laugh the joke away.

FOURTH ESTATE FELLOWS.
John Triplett, of the ThomasvUle
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 29.—[Special.]—
The railroad fight fs on now, and on in
earnest. The Berner bill and all the
substitutes for it formed the special or
der in the House this morning, coming
up at eleven o’clock. It drew a crowd,
and in this crowd were many people
interested in the legislation which was
to be enacted. President Phinizy, of
t-he Georgia road, and Pat Calhoun
were in the gallery, interested specta
tors. In the clerk’s room and out in
the hall were others personally connec
ted with railroad matters. Then there-
were other spectators, Colonel Living
ston who had a seat near a friend on
the floor; prominent Savannah people
who are here fighting the exorbitant
pilotage bill which has passed the
House and is now before the Senate
prominent men -at least well known
men—from different parts of the State
THE BILL AND SUBSTITUTES.
The bill as introduced Mr. Berner is
Section. 1. Be it enacted by the
general assembly of Georgia, and it is
enacted by tbe same, Tii&t from and
after the passage of this act the railroad
companies of this state, and those opera
ting railroads therein, shall file with
the railroad commission, in a time pro
scribed by it, copies of all sales, leases
and contracts, or agreements, of every
character, heretofore or her* after made
either with one railroad company and
another railroad company, or between
corporations, or individuals, by wuicl
the operations of railroads in this Stab
are controlled, and the said commission
shall investigate the same, and when
ever the effect of the same is to defeat
GEORGIA’S ENORMOUS TAX RATE.
The average legislator will not
find his way strewn With roses pluck
ed by the loyal, trusting hands and
hearts of his constituents when he
returns home this fall in time to eat
his Thanksgiving turkey.
All over Georgia the people are
growing discontented with the inn
creasing and burdensome taxes that
the Georgia legislature has put upon
them this session. Actually the
taxes have gone np to a pitch more
burdensome than daring the sn&y
of Bollock’s gang. It is appalling.
The Cedartown ' Standard grows
practical and says: • ’
The legislature has at last fixed
the rate of State tax, and it goes
away up higher than last year* The
Virtue itself of vice must pardop beg :
Yea curb aud woo for leave to do hinTgood.”
Mr. Watson was, we believe, sin
cere in his Lfror. This'of course
does not excuse the error, but it is a
circumstance that strongly pleads
bis forgiveness. He did and said
much in his brief career that caused
his just and righteous condemna
tion. He said that the Democratic
party was no better than the Repub.,
lican party. He declared that be
would kick out of the Democratic
traces and vote against Judge Crisp
fir the Speakership, and said it with
out provocation. He attached the
Democratic party from every stamp
in Middle Georgia and said many
hard' things about its leaders. In
plain terms he was a spoiled child
and behaved badly. That’s about
all the harm he has done, and his
good old mother, the Democracy, has
.given him a flogging for it and is
willing to call it square.
On the other hand Mr. Watson, we
repeat, has done good. Everybody
who knows Tom Watson, knows him
to be honest at heart. He would not
follow Colonel Livingston and bow to
the giant monarch of monopolies, the
West Point Terminal Company, in
its aggressive inroad to the vital in
terests of tbe people. He was Col
onel Livingston’s personal friend,
and he sacrificed friendship and fa
vor of the Alliance president to
speak oat against the tyranny ol
soch a policy as that of the West
Point Terminal. Mr. Watson was
with the people in this respect, and
Was fighting the good fight amid
loud applause wherever he went.
Mr. Watson’s silence therefore is a
matter of concern for reasons pio
and cun. A review of bis eareer
makes' his sadden withdrawal from
Georgia politics interesting and no
ticeable. There is something strange
about it—as strange as was his be
trayal of Democratic faith. His best
friends cannot understand it, and
everybody is thoughtfully inquir

MR. BERNER SPEAKS.
An effort was made by Mr. Sibley, of
Cobb, to bring up the Ocala platform
resolutions and displace the regular or
der but this was voted down Then
Mr. Berner took tbe floor and spoke for
nearly two hours. He was listened to
closely, members turning their chairs
toward him as he spoke in the
center aisle. His was a strong anti-
monopoly speech. He quoted from
Gould’s testimony in the Erie case,
showing that Gould and tbe railroad
generally contributed to help friendly
men-See. He urged that bis bill
mean, /mply to put the railroad ques
tion where it belonged, as a purely busi
ness question. His bill, be argued,
simply gave the commission power to
investigate tbe railroad leases in Geor
gia. He did not consider that there was
an extreme or harsh word in the bill.
He jumped on the so-called lobbyists
with both feet—making it plain that
be did not refer to those gentlemen
who came before the committee and
argued tbeir position, but “pn d
hirelings who are here every morniug
when the clerks call the roll, and who
stay until adjournment." The people,
he urged, are not opposed to oonsolida
tion of roads, but they demand that
the ^benefits of'consolidation be not
aken away by such consolidation.
Mr. Berner was warmly applauded
wben he concluded. Then Mr. Chap
pell got the floor, and a few minutes
before one o’clock, before he bad begun
his argument, the House adjourned.
The discussion will be continued to

DEPOSED FOR HERESY.
/the Actlou of the Epiavopul Churoh Iu
the MaoQueary Cute.
Alliance, O., Sept. 29.—Bishop Leon
ard of Cleveland, was in the city to
attend consecration services at Trinity
Episcopal church. In an interview
concerning the deposition of Rev. How
ard MatQueary, the young Episcopal
minister of Canton, from the church
for heresy, the bishop said: "The ac
tion was <t necessity on the part of the
church. When u minister stndics the
creed of a religious sect and.then takes
an oath to preach such creed, he is
bound to follow out thnt course. If
later he finds that he cannot conscien
tiously preach such creed and that his
oclief differs from it, it is his duty to
withdraw froth the church. Rev. Mac-
tyueary was tried by his peers, and it
was opposite to that* of the Episcopal
church. He was given ample time in
which to retract, bnt this be refused to
do, and he also refused to recognize my
authority as bishop. The only stop left
was to depose him from the cnurdi, and
this was hone last weeek. This severs
his connection with the Episcopal church
forever, aud puts a liual end to the mat
" Do you think Rev. MacQneary will
seek redress in the civil courts now?”
"No, r said the bishop. "Hecanac-
coni'iltsli nothing in that way now. The
civil courts can give no redress. He
failed to live up to 1 he oat h of allegiance
to the church and consequently he was
deposed, 'that eods the mutter forever.

is sincere ii> what, he preaches, and [ do
not think he has acted with a view to

he oertaiuly should have withdrawn

London, Sept. 29.—Lord Tennyson,
