THE KU KLUX KLAN
VISITED THIS CITY
Robed in White With White Caps—
Preceded by The Firey
NEAR A HUNDRED
IN THE PARADE
Line of March Included the Colored
Residential Sections, the Cotton
Mill District and Athens and
When Deni Ku Klux Cum Ter Town.
'Twns a Saturday night in Winder,
When de cops had an ear to de ground
When all at once
Some nigger had a hunch
Deni Ku Klux wuz coming ter town.
Their step was firm and noiseless,
Not a word —not even a sound,
All robed in white
Lak ghosts of de night
When dem Ku Klux cum ter town.
T- ain’t done nuthing so scandlous
‘Cept peddle er little booze er round
Now I’m offen dat fer keeps
No mo “readum and weep
Since dem Ku Klux cum ter town.
The Kit Klux Klan visited Winder
Saturday night at about 9:00 o’clock
about seventy-five strong. There has
been many reports current in the past
that the Ku Klux had been seen in this
’city, but these reports have never been
confirmed. But that they were here
Saturday night is a fact, because we
saw them with our own two eyeballs.
The silent, ghost-like figures were
first seen emerging from the cemetery
and proceeded through Pine Town and
Lightning Bug alley, two negro baili
wicks noted for more or less of Satur
tF,'v night hilarity and carousing. From
here the line of march extended into
Athens street, thence out Beulah street
to the railroad and back into Athens
street to the cotton mill district, from
thence to White Oak church in Glenn
wood —the colored residential section
of Winder. It is said by those who
were following afar off that the ghost
ly figures stopped for a rest in Glenn
wood—which is evidence that even a
ghost gets tired —and that the line
extended from the negro church to the
far end of the street, a distance of a
quarter mile. The klansmen marched
in single file about five paces apart,
-•hot a word was spken, not a sound ex
cept the soft tread of the nocturnal vis
itors: it was an impressive scene,
like ghosts of the night.
Some estimated the number as high
as 211, while others of the more con
servative ones said about 75 to 100.
We are of the opinion that there were
ahout 75 in the parade.
Who they were and where the came
from, nobody seems to know. Some
think they were from Gwinnett, oth
ers are of the opinion that they were
from Walton and Wilkes counties, and
many believe they were citizens of
Winder and Barrow county. If they
are Winder and Barrow county people
and have an organization here they
have succeeded in keeping from the
general public their identities, their
meeting places and meeting time.
We have known for some time of
such an organization in existence. Im
perial Wizzard Simmons, of Atlanta.
*is the organizer of this klan, adniinis
‘ toring the first oath on top of Stone
Mountain in 1917. The Searchlight,
a paper published in Atlanta, gives
much information as to what the klan
is and' stands for. It is said the Ku-
Klux nexer take the law into their
own hands, but rather upholds the law
and the officers of the law. some of the
most lending members being officers
of the laws and sworn to uphold them.
This organization is said to ho tho
continuation of tho original Ku Klux
11 Klan of the sixties, and many of our
citizens remember it and not a few
were members of it. But in those
days it had to use extreme measures
that are not now necessary nor desira
ble. but it is said that this organization
was instrumental in saving the South
from the carpetlmggars.
Tt is said that the klan disapproves
of idleness among all classes, and par
ticularly such acts as able-bodied ne
gro men living with negro women hav
ing never been married, said negro
women carrying food from the ‘white
folks’ yard’ for the support of her man.
Blind tigering, gambling, prowling the
the streets until a late hour at night,
congregating at negro restaurants and
barbershops where hilarity and boister
ousness hold sway until the wee’ sma’
hours of the morning also come under
the ban of the Ku Klux Klan.
' Reports come from Washington. Cia.,
Wilkes county, that since the advent

MFG. CO. MAKING A
LINE SCREEN DOORS
Not a Factory Nearer Than Memphis,
Tennessee, Making Screen Doors.
Will Be Great Saving in Freight
Rates to South.
This enterprising concern which
manufactures one of the best lines of
office furniture made anywhere, seeing
the demand dull in that line, decided
to manufacture a line of screen doors
at this season.
They designed “The Mayne Screen
Door,” and are now selling them all
over the South. There is not a facto
ry nearer than Memphis, Tenn., making
screen doors. Not only from the fact
that The Smith-Mayne Mfg. Cos. are
the only makers of screen doors in this
section of the South, but because of
the exceedingly well built doors that
they are putting on the market the
jobbers all over the country are wel
coming this product on the market.
The people of Winder appreciate the
spirit of this enterprising concern, and
it may develop to such an extent that
expansions will have to be made to
take care of the demand.
The News is glad to note the splen
did success that this Winder enter
prise is having and we trust we may
have more such enterprises.
Georgia Glee Club At
Winder Monday Night
The Glee and Mandolin Club of the
University of Georgia swooped down
on Winder Monday night and made a
decided hit with our people. The boys
are not outclassed anywhere when it
comes to entertaining an audience, and
tbe Winder people were hearty in their
applause. Slaughter’s Jazz Band,
Rowlinson, Boykin, (.’arson and Jones,
'he four end men, kept the audience in
tine liunlor throughout the entertain
ment. The music by the Mandolin
boys was tiptop, while the band ren
dered splendid selections. >The entire
aggregation headed by 11. E. L. Spence,
the interlocutor, is fine, and the recep
tion the hoys received in Winder was
hearty and enthusiastic.
Evangelistic Meeting At
The Christian Church
The meeting that has been in prog
ress at the Christian church for the
past ten days came to a close this
week. liev. Stanley R. Grubb, the
minister, has been doing the preaching
and his sermons have been strong and
effective, attracting large and appre
ciative audiences. Not only the mem
bership of the church but the entire
community has been helped and great
ly uplifted by the meeting. Mr. Grubb
is taking hold of his work with the
Christian church in this city with vigor
and enthusiasm and that the church
will prosper under his ministry is as
Name of East Broad St.
Changed to East Ave.
The name of East Broad street has
been changed to East street. This has
been done to avoid any confusion that
may arise. Some have thought that
all of Broad east of the Gainesville
Midland railway was E. Broad street.
By changing the name this confusion
of the Ku Klux into that county that
more than a score of marriage license
have been sold to negroes who straight
way married their ‘wives” with whom
they had been living in adultery for
many years. It is daunt'd that
no honest, working, law-abiding negro
should have any fears of the Ku Klux,
as that is the kind of citizen they will
protect, hut “you impudent, loafing,
gambling, good-for-nothing negro, be
ware ! The Ku Klux will show you up
if yu don’t watch out,” say those who
are in a positin to know.
As for our part, we are not afraid
of the Ku Klux, and no law-abiding cit
izen should have any fear of them, and
if they are here and here for the pro
tection of the laws and the suppression
of crime, as we believe they are, then
we welcome them to our midst, and
may their number increase nnd multi
ply uud be a great influence for good.

ARE PAYING TAXES
The people of Burrow county are
paying their state and county taxes
far ahead of the average of tire coun
ties of the state. Tax Collector Apple
by informs us that fully 95 per cent of
the county's taxes have been collect
ed, while Jackson, an adjoining coun
ty has not collected over 70 per cent
of her taxes. We doubt if there is a
county in the state that has done bet
ter than Barrow in paying its state
and county taxes.
ANITA STEWART AT
THE STRAND TODAY
Dorothy Gish in “Remodeling Iter Hus
band on Monday.
In connection with the Hawaiian
singers and dancers tonight, Anita
Stewart will be seen in one of her best
Aims, “Her Kingdom of Dreams.” This
is a story of a marriage for conven
ience. A country girl’s ideals, enthus
ed by an unconquerable desire to ex
plore the great world beyond, leads
Anita Stewart, as Judith Rutledge,
into the private life of a Great Lumber
king. Here she walks with fate while
tragedy and duplicity stalk her every
move. “Her Kingdom of Dreams” be
comes a realm of sensational happen
ings out of which she is guided at last
quivering, sorrow-scarred and the vic
tim of circumstance.
This is a 7-reel picture and has an
all-star cast, including Wesley Barry,
the freekled-face office boy, Miss An

WINDER MAN FIG
URES IN ATLANTA’S
Moss E Garrison Loses to Wire Tap
ping Game According to Atlanta
Atlanta is all excitement just now
on account of the charges and counter
charges that are being hurled at each
other by Solicitor Boykin and the po
lice forces of the city. Solicitor Boy
kin, in trying to prosecute the “bunco”
gang in that city has charged the po
lice authorities with being in collusion
with the gang, while the police au
thorities are hitting back and charging
Boykin with accepting money from
the bunco gang and failure to prose
It seems that the crowd of bunco
men fleeced Mr. M. E. Garrison, of this
city, out of a considerable sum of mon
ey, and he has an affidavit in the At
lanta papers claiming that he could
not get the gang prosecuted by the so
licitor general. The following clip
pings from the Atlanta Georgian of
Wednesday gives Mr. Garrison’s con
nection with the case and also Solic
itor Boykin’s reply thereto:
This affidavit, executed by M. E.
Garrison, formerly of Atlanta, now of
Winder, Ga., not only charges the so
licitor general with refusing to prose
cute gamblers whom he reported , but
charges that when Woodward's men
sought to refund him $850.00 out of
$3350 they had fleeced from him, lie
telephoned Mr. Boykin, asked him
what about it. and the solicitor told
him he had better accept it and drop
The solicitor general referred brief
ly to an affidavit of M. E. Garrison,
Winder man, who accused J. O. Ew
ing, former associate of Mr. Boykin,
ns an active aid of the “bunco” gang.
Mr. Boykin said:
“This man came to me and said
he had lost some money, and wanted
to recover it. I told him I would sum-
Uiou him before the grand jury, and
would prosecute the men he implicat
ed in his testimony. He said no. he
would not have his name drawn into
a court case for anything; that lie ran
a drug store on Forrest avenue, and it
would ruin his business to have it be
come known that he was in a game. I
told him I was interested only in pros
ecutions, and he declined positively to
prosecute or go before a grand jury. I
could not do more. I told him to go to
a lawyer and directed him to Philip
Weltner, and also wrote Mr. Weltner
to try to induce this man to prosecute.
Weltner has been before the grand
jury and testified that he endeavored
to do so, but could make no headway,
and did not represent him further.
The entire state is watching the dis
closures in this contest between Solic
itor Boykin and Atlanta’s deoteetive
and police departments and are inter
ested in the result. Somebody has
been in collusion with the “bunco
crowd. Probably we will know before
the end comes.

ATLANTA MAN ON
Early Re-Entrance of New England
Spinners Into Market Is
That an early re-entrance of the New
England spinners into the cotton mar
ket ought to take up some slack in the
price of the staple, and may reasona
bly expected to give the market an
upward turn, was the opinion express
ed in an interview published in the cur
rent issue of Textile World, of New
York, by Beaumont Davison, of Atlanta
wli> is recognized as one of the best
informed men on dry goods conditions
in the United States.
The spinners have virtually used up
all their surplus cotton, according to
Mr. Davison, and will be compelled to
shortly re-enter the market if they till
the orders that will be placed for cot
ton goods between now and the first of
April. Merchants are expecting to pay
higher prices for cotion goods they pur
chase now. and it is likely that there
will be a 15 to 20 per cent increase in
the retail prices.
