Closing hi9 communication, “M.
L.” urges Atlantians to be “ square
and honest” in this matter.
'We hope they will, because if At
lanta people evor succeed in being as
square and Lmest” in the solution
of this hard problem as the people of
Athens have been, one thing is cer
tain, all such croakers as “ M. L.”
will be buBbed forever, and the Gate
City will never afterwards be heard
making a rustle of discontent in this
“ *-ET US BE SQUARE AND HONEST.”
A communication in the Atlanta
Journal signed “M L.” attracts our
attention, bearing as it does npon
the Athens dispensary.
The Journal’s correspondent “M.
L.”is a prohibitionist—that's evi
dent. He is trying to get Atlanta to
do away with her bar-rooms and
urges that no half-way ground like
that of a dispensary be taken by the
voters of the Gate City. This is all
very well, if M. L. chooses to think
so. Nobody will deny him the righ
express bis opinion on a matter
in this general way, but he ought to
let his expressions stop there. He
has no right to throw sarcasm and
abase upon the good people of Ath*
ene as he does in his communica*
We quote a sample paragraph from
his communication as follows :
When the Athens dispensary bar
room was first opened they could nol
get liquor enough to supply the de-
mand, bnt recently it was stated as
a fact that it was in fine working or
der, that it required three bar—keepi
era to wait on the castomers, and
that they sell froin three to five hun
dred bottles a day. It is thought
that Athens will pay half of her city
taxes with the $40,000 she expecis
to make this year by her dispensary
bar-room attachment to her probibi
tion (?) government.
We felt no special objection to this
utterance, because in the light of the
circumstances npon which the dis
pensary was established we find
nothing wrong in the facts stated so
sarcastically above. Bnt we do find
cause for complaint at the following
paragraph from the Journal’s cor
Any and everybody in Athens can
get liquor at this bar-room unless be
is a minor or a student at the Uni
versity. The women can get it, too,
unless they are classed among the
nobodies. Atlanta with her high li
cense is not so liberal, and it is con-
sideicd respectable to drink from a
dispensary bar-room, as the dispen
sers are among the most cultured
and refined citizens of the Classic
City, and like those in Barnesville,
will continue to grow in popularity.
Of course the minora of Athens and
the students of the University wil
not be tried and tempted by any oi
those bibulous citizens, both male
and female, and Athens is now tbi
proper place for the youth of Geor
gia to imbibe correct ideas of right
living aud be trained up without de
ceit. It has, however, been suggest
ed that we may expect a plentiful
crop oi Pecksniffs and Uriah Heeps
to spring from a place which has a
S robibition government, dominated
y a dispensary bar room, which
sells from three to five hundred bot
tles a day to bring in a revenue for

Here’s the way Larry writes about
Our friends have been exceedingly
kind, both in Athens and Atlanta.
Eaoh one who has visited us brought
not only words of sympathy, but -a
prescription of his or her own mann-
factory. Had we swallowed oner,
tenth of the decoctions prescribed
for us, we would have to take out a
drug store license for onr stomach,
and in Athens labor nnder the subn
picion of running a blind tiger at
tachment. The most popular re
ceipt seemed to be spirits of turpen
tine. We were rubbed with turpen
tine, poalticed with turpentine, fed
turpentine with our dinner, made to
eat it on sugar, and even required to
smoke lightwood splinters. Our sys
tern became so thoroughly saturated
with turpentine that it oozed from
the pores of our skin like perapira-
tion, aud had we been boxed would
have run rosin like a South Georgia
pine. We left Athens to get rid of
this turpentine affliction, and came
to Atlanta and placed ourself under
the treatment of Dr. Calhoun. But
we soon discovered that we jumped
out of t!ie trying pan into the fire,
rhe Doctor gave us a sort of vapor
bath for our throat and nostrils,that
smoked and tasted and smelled just
like a tar-kiln afire. We hope some
time to get well, bnt if we do shuffle
ofl this mortal coil, and car remains
are exhumed in alter years, we are
strongly inclined to the opinion that
the resurrectionist will find a light—

triends, but beg and plead with them,

What are the facts in the case ?
Before Athens voted to establish
the dispensary there were blind ti
gers on every side street and alley—
liquor dens that coaid not be broken
up. The youth were tempted and
ruined. The college students were
not free from the dangerous influ
encs. Men were becoming debased
by mean, poisonous liquor „sold in
defiance of the law, for which they
were fast losing all respect. The sit
uation was deplorable.
A movement was started by a law
and order party to get open bar-
rroms in preference to this condition
of almost hopeless corruption. The
men who joined in this movement
Here prompted by the sincere desire
and ambition to do something for
the good of their city. When the
question was submitted to the voters
a majority—and a small majority too
—decided in favor of the dispensary
plan as a more advisable solution of
the problem than open barsrooms

Has The Times bad too much faith
in the large and liberal statements
of their generous purposes by Mr
John H. Inman and Mr. Patrick Cal-
uonn? When The Times believed
hat the combinations which were ef
fected onder the Richmond Terminal
system were generously intended for
the development ot the Southeast was
it fooled? When The Times depre
cated the disposition on the part of
the Georgia legislature to disturb
the combinations was The Times
flying in the face of the interests of
its own town and immediate section?
That is the way it looks now. li
it is that way,- The Times is ready
for repentance. It will repent itselt
that it had too much confidence in
the declarations of Mr. Inman and

A correspondent from Oglethorpe coun

farmers down in that section are deter
mined to plant more small grain this
year than they have put under the
ground for many a year gone by. Al
most every farmer in that entire part of
Georgia has entered fully into the spirit
of the Cotton Convention recently held
in Atlanta and baB agreed to plant less
cotton and more small grain, corn, pota
toes and the like.
The trouble with the South today is
the over production of cotton and the
shortage in the production of wheat,
oats, hay, corn and such orops Cotton
