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 than one. 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 sighs. «>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 life? 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 RATHER MIXED- 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 a quicksand 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 allel columns. 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 headed “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 the people. 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 corruption when 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 Railroad. “ 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 132 miles. “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. UP FOR THE BERNER BILL UNDER DISCUS SION. k ....... PATRIOT!*! BObIb&ER Makes a Ringing Speech of TWo Hours Length-Applauded to the Echo-The Different Substitutes. On 14,000,000 of the stock of the Cen tral Railroad of Georgia, the Georgia Company and Richmond Termnial Com panv have issu»d some $25,000,000 of stocks and bonds and a large part of this they intend to squeeze out of the people of Georgia Well, we intend they shall not do it.—Milledgeville Chronicle. Yes, so did we intend, but how about the Georgia Legislature ? And still they come! Following is the way the Milledgeville Chronicle puts it: The actions of Dr. Baldwin in the Legislature Tuesday would hardly do credit to an it mate of ar-insane asylum, much less a law maker. However, we are not disappointed at such behavior, after other actions of that body. Says the Brunswick Times: Hon. Thomas Watson is not so vociferous as formerly.

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 as follows: 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 * 9 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 ing— Where is Mr. Watson ? Is his solitude bringing him to soliloquize as did Tasso iu bis la ment?

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 morrow. Zs the strongest Home-indorsed Medicine in the world.

Please give Athens the favor of your signature next year A number of substitutes have been offered, but the principal one of these is that offered by Dr. Chappell and known as the Farmers’ substitute. The bill is the result of a conference, most of its features having been drawn, by Hon. Martin V. Calvin, of Richmond, and was strongly advocated by him before the meeting of farmers of the legislature to which it was submitted The result was that it was endorsed practically and unanimously. Its object is to deal strongly with the railroads but at the same time to look after the interests of the people who have money invested in them. It is an act to enlarge the powers of the railroad commission so as to give it supervision over the sales, leases, con tracts and agreements of railroads in this State; to authorize said commis sion to disapprove auy of said sales, leases, contracts and agreements, in 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 ter.’’ " Do you think Rev. MacQneary will seek redress in the civil courts now?” was usked. "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. 1 have no doubt that Rev. MacQueary is sincere ii> what, he preaches, and [ do not think he has acted with a view to ci- atisig a sensation in the religions i. .rid; but orceds are unalterable, and he oertaiuly should have withdrawn from the churoh of his own free will."
