At the annual meeting of the
Georgia Peach Growers Association
in Atlanta last week, (Ml. L.
Russell of this city was appointed
chairman <>f the committee to select
and recommend commission houses
for the handling of the peach crop
of this season. Georgia's peach
crop is < stimated at five million dol
lars and consequently the selection
of proper parties to handle the crop
in the largest cities is one of great
importance to the growers. Each
year the list of reliable commission
houses is revised and those whose
dealings have not been satisfactory
to the members of the association
striken from the list. In this way
the growers are protected from dis
honest or incapable men.
Several houses were stricken from
the list hv the committee and Col.
Russell has received many letters
and telegrams from houses and
association who were dropped from
WITHDRAWS FROM RACE?
Col. R. L. J. Smith publishes a
card in The Commerce News this
week withdrawing from the race for
-olicitor"gencral of the Western cir
cuit, In part he says:
“Several months ago! annoiificed
my candidacy for the office of so
icitor general of the Westesn circuit.
My announcemeot w,.s made'in the *
utmost good faith and upon the
earnest solicitotion of many friends
in different parts of the circuit. It.
was then n\y purpose, to make a
thorough house tn house canvass
f the circuit, to meet the voters
face to face and present my claims
to them for their suffrage and sup
port. ' i
“Since then, however, I have
been providentially prevented from
canvassing thejdistrict and meeting
the people, as I had hoped and ex
pected to do at the time of making
my announcement, and since it is
now entirely too late for me to do
so, I deem it best to retire from the
race, leaving my friends free to give
their support to the candidate of
Personally we have a high opinion
of Col. Smith’s ability as a lawyer,
and hailing, as he does, from the
county of our birth, we regret that
lie was prevented from making an
aggressive and winning campaign.
