If everyliody is in favor of biennial sessions of the
legislature, why can't we have them?
One of the most visionary men of modern times is
Lord Northcliffe, of England, who says lie expects
peace shortly in Ireland.
The tobacco market In South Georgia seems to be
in about the same condition as the cotton market in
this section of the state.
One of the most interesting write-ups of the recent
press meeting at Washington was made by Miss Mary
Singleton, the eleven-year-old linotype operator on the
And now comes a Paris doctor and says he can give
you a brand new face for three hundred dollars. We
are going to take up a collection at the next meeting
of the press association and have anew one made
for Jack Patterson, of the Atlanta Journal.
Representative Lankford, of Toombs county, wants
congress to offer a reward of ss,ooo,taxi to anyone who
will invent a remedy that will successfully combat the
boll weevil. Such a reward would put a lot of folks
to studying and inventing.
The legislature is about to pass a law taxing all
unmarried men and women over thirty years of age
$5.00 per year. This won’t affect our triend, Jack
Patterson, of the Atlanta Journal, who Is hardly nine
Editor Brown Tyler, of the Conyers Times, was mar
ried about a month ago, and already he Is writing
editorials about "Being Married Getting to be Risky.’
He says he favors a constitutional amendment to pro
tect defenseless husbands, or that there ought to Vie
a closed season on them same as on other game.
It is stated that if the $2,500 tax on grand opera
becomes a part of the tax law of the state, Georgia
bus heard its last performance of grand opera. We
could manage to get along without grand opera our
self, we reckon, but we would feel sorry for Editors
Shackelford, of Lexington, and Shannon, of Commerce.
The row is still on between Editors Camp,
Shnckelford and McWhorter over colleges and
common schools. We suggest they settle the
matter at the press 'cue at Washington—see which
can shred the most 'cue.— Madison Madisonian.
We were thoroughly beaten by Editor Camp at the
Tlgnall ’cue. When we gave up the tight, he was six
ribs ahead of us and still a shreddlu’. However, Ed
itor Shackelford won out over Ernest easily. "Shack”
is the champion 'cue shredder of the Georgia hoys.
Editor McWhorter, of the Winder News, com
mends Editor Camp for speaking out against the
municipal league. The Madisonian man received
very cordial invitation to the Atlanta meeting
and a card to the Ansley luncheon, but somehow
we felt it place for us. While they sometimes
get on the wrong side of politics, yet one will not
go far wrong in following the leadership of Edi
tors Camp and McWhorter.—Madison Madisonian.
Moth are estimable gentlemen and good editors.
We may not always agree with them, but on these
municipal league bills we were all agreed. We
are happy to state that these so-called biljs ap
parently have gone the way of Ward’s ducks.—Dal
Claude and ye editor ate in Washington this week
attending the Georgia Press Association. Claude will
go on to Tybee for a dip in the surf. We fear some
mermaid will get him and he’ll never get back to
Winder. —Winder News.
Claude Cook is a fine fellow and we hope he will
not fall a victim of some entanglement which will
forbid his return to his old friends In Northeast Geor
gia. Our private opinion, publicly expressed is that
Claude does not cart so much for vamps In his old
Claude resents the insinuation that he Is old. \*ou
ought to have seen him Jumping and romping around
lb the water up to his ankles down at Tybee. Every
body on the lieach took him to be only eighteen years
A New Paper for Athens.
This section of the State will lie interested in the
announcement of anew daily paper for Athens, the
publication of which will begin about September Ist.
It is being hacked by about ninety of the leading bus
iness men of the city and will have the hearty support
of a large per cent of the advertising patronage.
Athens is the largest and most important city in this
section of Georgia, and everybody in this northeastern
section will be interested in the new publication.
Since the consolidation of the two Athens papers under
management much dissatisfaction has arisen among
the merchants of that city, and it is proposed to give
Athens and this section of Georgia an up-to-date news
paper with all the latest news. The subscription
price will be $5.00 per year, and it will no doubt
have a splendid list of subscribers when it begins
The Outlook for Business.
The outlook for business this fall is good for this
section. The farmers have put up a splendid fight
against the boll weevil, and the cotton crop bids fair
to be good. On account of the greatly reduced acre
age throughout the South there will be a great falling
off in the total yield and this ought to stiffen up the
price considerably and we believe it will have this
effect. The crop has been made on very little ex
pense, and many of last year's debts will be eliminated
this fall. We believe the merchants will find business
fairly good, and by degrees the depression under which
the public is now laboring will gradually pass away.
The time has now come to get down to business
right, hustle for all you can get, and carry a bright,
optimistic spirit. Things are coming around alright
if we will to have it that way. Our lands are just
as productive as ever, our people are just as honest
and energetic as ever, and as we recover from the
blow that was delivered us last fall we will realize
that complaining does no good, but that the
“going on” spirit will always win.
What has become of all the oil stock salesmen that
used to swarm over Georgia?
Ninth Georgia District Press
The next meeting of the Ninth Georgia District
Press Association will be held in Winder on Friday.
September 2nd. We are expecting a full representa
tion of all the newspapers of the district at that
meeting. A program for the meeting will be given
out next week and we hope to make the September
meeting the best we have yet had. We are asking our
brethren of the press to arrange to be present. A cor
dial invitation is extended to the Eighth District
boys to meet with us. Only one day is taken up in
the meeting and Winder is only a short drive from all ,
sections of both the Ninth and Eighth districts. This
"section of Georgia has some of the livest and most
progressive papers in the state, and we are sure we
cun make our district meetings interesting, pleasant
and profitable. We want you to come.
More Notes on the Press Meeting
Savannah is a great city, the outlet of the state to
the sea, and all Georgians feel a pride in their chief
Editor Morcock, of Lawreneeville, stayed in the
ocean at Tybee exactly nine hours and fifteen min
utes. Our friend ought not to wait so long between

Editor George Rucker says that, to our utter as
tonishment, the surf zoo was made up mostly of
calves, and that we kept our eyes closed and prayed.
Not so with George. He "watched as well as prayed.”
The last we saw of “Shack” of the Oglethorpe Echo
was on Broughton street in Savannah expatiating
on the difference between "Savannah Ale ’ and
Ex-Mayor Wootten’s address of welcome out at
Tignall was a gem. He knows how to make a speech
and he knows how to reach the heart of the Georgia
editor. The barbecue was great.
John Holder Was toastmaster out at Tignall. Must
have missed his dinner as all the speakers were short
on account of the tempting table and John was kept
The breakfast given by the Savannah Morning
News, and the Shore dinner served so acceptably by
the Savannah Press at Tybee were among the most
enjoyable occasions of the whole trip. The visitors
will never forget these feasts.
Hon. Frank Colley’s address of welcome was cor
dial and captivating. It mnde the visitors feel at
home from the very beginning. By the way, Col. Col
ley is one of Wilkes’ distinguished citizens, and prom
inent throughout the state. He was once a candidate
for congress In the Eighth district.
Editor J. Kelly Simmons, of the Nashville Herald,
the retiring president, was presented with two beauti
ful gifts by the association as a mark of appreciation
by the body for his services during the past two years.
Kelly made the association an excellent presiding of
