WATSON Will NOT SUPPORT SMITH
Americus, Ca. —Hon. Thomas E.
Watson in a personal letter to a
friend in Americus says:
“While I honestly think that
Governor Smith ought to have com
muted the sentence in the Augusta
case, as well as in the Savannah
case, and should hot have granted
a full pardon in the Neal case, these
things alone would never have
caused me to take*the position with
reference to his administration
which I have felt myself compelled
to take. It is Governor Smith’s
failure to keep his pledges and his
reversal of positions which Ih* has
taken on pulic matters, notably the
concentration of*p<over in the four
big cities, that have made it imposi
bh'for me to support him again.”

SHANNON resigns chairmanship
Of Commerce Anli-Sebon League and
Stales His Reasons Therefor.
Cumim rc ■, Ga., May 7. —Mr. J.
F. Shannon t<nd<red his resigna

Anti-Sab...n League yesterday. 11 its
“1 have Always been an ardent
prohibitionist. The first vote I
•ver east for a president of the
United States was east for a prohi
bit'. mist. Sine-then I have always
advocated prohibition, and voted
for it when the issue was presented
on its m riis. Hut i have always
claim ■ i for my-df the right to vote
for the man of my choice, and this
! hav * always accorded to others.
But with me t! 1• ■ limit has been
’ iii ■ trusters of the Anti-Saloon
League have seen lit to give indorse

ernor oi this state, whose record-on
tiic liquor queMion is an open book.
He admits that he voter! against
prohibition in Atlanta, and that he
contributed money to defeat the
I " , ■ <’• '■)w. Ti, amount
contributed is said to be SSOO. Af
ter tie* bill was pass and, in spite* of
h:s efforts, h<* was the paid attorney
of th * liquor m< n of Atlanta, and
filed a suit in the courts to annul
the law. I’his is a matter of record.
Later lie was one of the firm
who rented a room for the sale of
liquor in the city of Atlanta, known
as the Piedmont bar. Later, still,
lie said in the former campaign that
he was a local optionist. This
meant liquor in Atlanta; for so
long as local option prevailed the
liquor interests in Atlanta were
sai<*. Hv *n in his inaugural ad
dress lie still committed himself to
local option. When the hill was
under consideration it received in
encouragement from him. On the
contrary, it is openly charged that
he tried to postpone action thereon.
Even now, while making the
fairest of promises, he has never said
that he ;s a converted man; that he
lias changed.his views from that of
1 local optionist to a prohibitionist.
