NO CONVICT AGREEMENT
Governor Smith Galls Warring Fac
tions Together, But Result
Seems a Dog-Fall.
The extra session of the legisla
ture has most the state of Georgia
in the neighborhood of $35,000,
and it seems we are no nearer a so
lution of the convict question than
when it was called. Relative to the
juggling of the two bodies of the
general assembly The Constitution
of this morning says:
“Governor Smith last night
called a conference of the leaders of
the legislature at the mansion at
8:30 o’clock for the purpose of
harmonizing, if possible, the two
branches in an effort to get a con
vict measure passed so that the
extra session might be adjourned.
Those invited to the conference
weie president James J. Flint, of
the senate, with Senators Felder,
Martin, Farmer and Stephens,
Speaker John M. Slaton, of the
house, and representatives Holder
of Jackson, Wise of Fayette, Jones
of Merriwether, and Taylor of
“The party met in front of the
Aragon and went to the executive
mansion on time. They remained
until nearly midnight discussing
the convict measures proposed and
“The house committee on peni
tentiary and penitentiary matters,
forty strong, gathered at the capi
tol at 7 p. m- for the purpose of
receiving the report of the subcom
mittee from that committee to
whom the “twenty seven” senate
bill, recently passed by the senate,
had been referred.
“It was thought the committee
could report to the house committee,
who would be able to present a re
port to the house this morning, hut
they announced they could not re
port during the evening, so a meet
ing was called for 8 a. m., when
the house committee will wrestle
with the senate measure.
“The subcommittee meeting was
executive and nothing would l>e
given out until the report was made
to the house committee.
“It is understood, however, that
the senate bill is to be amended to
resemble largely the Holder measure
as introduced at the extra session,
with those amendments which were
incorporated in the conference com

Straw hats Gone to Ruin.
New York. —There was a big
smash in Wall street yesterday.
Fully a thousand straw hats went
down to ruin. September 15 is the

numerous brokers who ventured in
to the region of the bulls and bears
in defiance of the rule, soon saw
their “straws” look like a naval
Although there was less demol
