Till SAME OLD JIM.
It is wry amusing to the outside
: world to see the newspapers and
picuchers of Atlanta ln-gin to have
fits every time Woodward is elected
Jim Woodward has I wen a polit
ical faetor of the (bite ( ity for
twenty years. lie is the same don’t
care, do-a- I-please social outcast
today that he has be- n throughout
the whole length of time.
'Die national election having been
numbered among Uie events of the
past, sensations were scarce. So the
Atlanta news gatherers have found
poor old Jim drunk at one of his
usual haunts and are now heralding
it to the world as a great sensation.
The preachers are reHoliiting and
petitions arc being circulated call
ing on different citizens to make
the race for mayor at the general
election. This protest comes from
the same sood people- of Atlanta
who grew highly indignant at May
or Joyner s truthful statement that
the capital city would go wit if
given a ehance.
Woodward's character was not
only well known to the citizens pf
Atlanta but was pretty generally
known throughout Georgia by his
notorious acts during previous ad
ministrations. Atlanta indorsed his
conduct- by re-nominating him to
the highest office, within her gift.
The evidence is in, the verdict is
made, and the people of Georgia
can only sympathize with the
preacher.- and newspapers in their
efforts to prove tie Gate City more
good than had. By wiping aside
all party lines the better element of
the inhabitants of Atlanta hope to
find a .Moses to lead them to victory
over this public disgrace.
A SIGNAL HONOR.

SPOT COTTON LET HR.

Th© feature of the market this
week was the gi liners’ report, issued
last Monday showing S, EH), 782
bales having b.-en ginned up to
November 1, compared with G. 128,-

largest on record, ‘ut .immediately
upon its issue the Wall street spec
ulators supported the market vigor

decline, but caused an advance of
lb points. This interest- is credited
with holding one and a half million
bales, and the fight is growing lat

this speculative interest.

dangerous on either side, as sooner.
