It is whispered that Butts will have
a candidate lor the legislature on the
“no fence” issue.
Mr. John Land has bought out the
brick yard formerly run by Hall A Cos.

It has been hinted that a certain

a newspaper. Come down and we

We think the crop of spring chick

Uncle Me. Watkins says he wants it
understood thgt be is lio candidate for
the legislature ; but that Uncle Jim
Harkness ought to he.
We regret having to comment as we
liave this week, on “ that abominable
nuisance.” We hoped that enough
had been said, privately, and that some
action would have been taken ere ibis.
Mr. Revier, of Thomas ton, was on a
yisjt to Jackson last week. . Thereif no

ing around over here tor, In“deed”
Jfiss Ellis, one of Griffin’s most pleas
ent young Indies, after an extended vis
ij Ainpijg.friends .in Jgckson, returned
home this week, much th the discom
forture of her many admirers.
We learn Mr, J/vnd, one ot our
enterprising new comers, has made
arrangements to ship lumber to Jack
■oti, in large quantii'es. He wiM
probably make the lust shipment over
tho rew.-foad in a fi-w wi-eka.
We have unfortunately been situa
ted so as to be deprived of the luxu
ries of a garden this s ason, and we
take this occasion to thank our neigh
bors and (riends fir tha nice vegeta
bles they have so kind’y sent ua.
..... A Jackson girl,.,desirous of being
vaccinated, wawat it loss for seme plan
by which she culd have the opera
tion performed without showing her
arm to ftji’oiaag physician. The use
of pads to giv- shape and size, being
inegped'etit, shd concluded to bo in
oculated by an old married man, who
yoa know, never takes any notice ot
thes* things. r
At an unexpected bonr, on last
Wednesday night, we were agreeable
surprised with a nice serenade. As
the tender sweet female voices, sup
ported by inelodous base, intermio
gW with the harmonic sounds of a
well executed guitar, poured fourth

What might have terminated ae
rionsly,- resulted in nothing more
than frighlning the engineer and fire
man on the M- & B Extension, one
night last week. The engine ot one
of the supply trains coming thia way
ran into a rail fence which had been
built across the track at or near
Big Sandy oreek. It is aepposed the
feoc- was pat thers to protect the
plantation.through Which the -road
passed, from itrtrudmg Hock. A rail
was *l | icli bad become en*
tangled in the machinery of the engine
and the train passed on like noth
ing had h-ippnej.
After the hogs visit the filthy hole,
each day, near the jail, and sentinel
themselves around the square, the
whole town smells like a bustard roost.
It is strange that such a resort for the
hogs will be tolerated.
The filth and stench filing the at
raoatphere iu the neighborho and ot the
public privy, is almost enough to pro
duce small pox, yellow fever or any*
other insaoible disease. Its evidently
somebody* duty to look after this
nuisance. Our municiple authorities
seem lo have gone into “summer
quarters” and left the city to take
cate of i'setf.
O, for an abatement of that public
nuisance, that produces a stench equal
to the polecat, that fills the nostrels
of the citizens of North-West Jackson,
with perfume that don’t smell like
the essense of dried peaches. For the
sake of common decency, will not the
authorities look after this disgraceful
hole. It it a stigma on the town as
well as those who hold the reins of our
city government, to allow it—it mat
ters not who it belongs to. It is ob
noxious and intolerable.
JL good joke is told on two of onr
ci* mens, about the lime the first cole
burner engine roPot up to the depot.
One night as the rumbling of an eu.
gine approaching town, the wife of
Col. Van.,-awoke excitedly andarou*
ed him from his slumbers wit h-‘ Listen
listen; oh, the house i-> on fire.’* The
Coh, >n a half soranamhu'tc jUttfi,
heard the roaring, arose and alter
stumbling over some chairs and col
liding with the door which sto and
about half aja r , winded his way into
the back yard, and sailed around h e
dwelling at a two forty rate, expect
ing every moment to see the devour
ing flames bursting through the house
top. By this time the keen whist!-
of an approaching locomotive, broke
in on the excitement, and revealed
the fact that it was the roaring of the
cole-burner and not the house on fire
The Colonel returned to Isis r ota.
had h good laugh and went to sleep.
A few rightG aftersard-, the tame
noise was heard by Mr Iteet’s—wife,
who awoke liim somewhat excitedly.
Reel had jtisi been reading of storms
cyclones Ac., and the first tiling hi*
thtmgnt of, bounding from the bed,
was the advance signal of a tornado,
and rushed into the yard, at lightning
speed to see how the elements look

those *‘dtiddrotted” old cole burners.
Red “quelled his feathers” and retir
ed for the balance ot the niglit to
dream of the M. A B. Extension and
her noisy engines.
Some of the Griffiuiies are aroused
to the importance of having a rail*
road connection with tha M. & B.
Extension, which is qnue necessary
to save her trade and build up the
city instead of going down hill, flu
people of Griffin would be sloepiiro
over their interest werj they to lie
still in this matter an! allow Atlanta
and M aeon to gobble up the tr and,
that is now the life ol Griffin. They
have but one question to solve arid
that is what will become of them
when tha trade of Butts and Henry
counties is almost n total loss to them.
Answer this q i.siion and meet it, as
the sequel is being told by “Enter
prise” in a series of communications
in the Griffin News. The connection
should be made at Jackson in',
stead of Locust Grove, to meet the
wants of Griffin; bee ruse Jackson will
control a large amount oleoiton from
Henry, Newton, and J.sper counties
This is a question of vital importance
to Griffin, and it should he consider
ed well before taking. Hep*. Jackson
is hound to have sooner or later, one
or two more important railroad con
nedions, then it will be that the peo
ple of Griffin will see wheiein they
made a mis'ake. There are many
things to be taken into consideration,
more than merely having connection
with our railroad because it is a few
miles nearer to the Grove

one day last week, at AfcDonough, for

sent to jail. Nothing more than we
should have expected.
Tbs wind and hale, on last Sunday

Editor New, Hear Sir : We police
in the Butts County Argus, of May
25th, an article headed “In Reply to
Solo,” in which article the editor seems
to wish to create the impression that
Solo intended to detract from Hon.
S. F. Smith and B. W. Collier, in their
efforts to build our R R. Allow me
to assure the editor of the Argus that
such was foreign to o,ur purpose, as we
have always been a strong friend to
both of these gentleman, and gave
them our hearty support in all their
political aspirations, and we would not,
under any consideration, pluck one
laurel from the wreath of honor* due
those gentlemen, and no fair minded
reader call gather such a conclusion
from the article in News or 17th inst.
The purpose of said article was only
to let the people know who were the
principal lenders in the R. R., inter
prise. It would be impossible to nnme
all who advocated the policy of the ex
tension, as they were numerous, and
had ieeti for a number of years, before
any definite action was taken.
Since the editor has made so many
misstatements and accuses us of ‘Vo
ranee” we desire to correct some Of his
Ist. He says the letterof Hon. Sana*
tiel Smith was written January 20th,
1879. If the editor of the Argus, will
just put himself to the trouble, h< ean
find Gov. Colquitt’s Message publish
ed before House of Representatives,
(journal page 28) November 7th, 1878 ;
nearly three months before Mr. Smith’s
letter. He will also find that Mr. Fort
introduced his resolution for a commit
tee, November 9th, 2878, (see journ
al 1878, page A2.) ,nearly 3 months be
fore Mr. S's letter ; also appointment
of committee November 12th, 1878, see
journal page 78. Now with this record
bqfore us, do we not think Mr. Fort, and
Giov- Colquitt, were the leaders in the
enterprise—or, at least, among them,
and are they not entitled to the credit
given them 7
But we do not desire to be drawn in
to an extended discussion of the tnnt
ter, but will-' correct a few other mis
takes of the editor of the Argus. He
says Solo was not a citizen of Butts,
&c. In this he is mistaken ; Solo was
born and raised in Butts, and expeetoto
die here. As to the charge of ignorance
of facts, will state, we have never made
any pretense of wisdom, but think we
are about ns well posted as tne editor
of the Argus. Aguin be says "we de
sired to put him in an impropper light
and take from a citizen something
merited ” Nothing could have been
more foreign to our mind. JFe are n
friend to the editor and don’t intend
that he shall get mad with us if we
can help it.
Again he s >ys "we hold up Gov. Col
quitt’s administration ns imborilo.”
In this, too, he is mistaken. We have
always been a strong friend of Gov.
Colquitt, and have, in the main, defen
ded his administration. We hope this
will give the editor of Argus satisfse
tion ; if not. please hand him the name
of Solo at his request, and say to him,
we will make amends honorable when
we see him. That we do not think
pistols and coffee suited to this hot
weather, biit will take -lemonade With
foe in it. Solo.

Editor of the Jackson News : I

Argus, the editor says "youhave soun
ded the Clarion notes of your poßitica!
horn, ♦• rough the State of Butt*, call
ing tor every body except Democrats
to meet in Jackson on tfce V Ac.” And
that lie informs you, ani I presume
the balance of us, that the great party
that is to crash’Democracy has “lined
out.” \ ’
I would uo) jmve noticed it, had it
not been for the attack made upon yotv
and which seems intended pi prejudice
the people of the county against yonr
free, outspoken paper, that appears to
condom wrong where ever (bund, and
gives praise to truth and justice from
every source regardless of pufty.
What he terms your sound, wa* sim
•ply a notice signed many voters j call
ing for all to meet, who where in syni
paty with the Independent, or Liberal
move in the State, excluding none.
Said notice was published for the mon
ey, and the editor of the Argus likely
would have published it for ti\e same
consideration, and tbe writer of this,
did not know, wherVthe notice was
published and. ($• lhnw nrriwod, but
that, the editor of the Argue would be
one of the number, as he whs once an
independent candidate for legislative
honors ; iqthe language of Sam
Jones 6—w (jwheri the party lash was
applied he "fizzed out.”
I wish the press throughont the
Union was more independent; for the
independent press is the true sentinels
upon the watch towers of: the city
del bf VmeriCnft liberty.’ To the in
dependent press is due the respect and
support of every true American free
men, for its prompt report of the move
ments of the enepys of liberty and free
government. “ •,
Educated villainy fears nothing but
the independent press. The most gi
gantic frauds puss unnoticed by the
partisan nrgau, for fear the exposure
will injure the party. Exposure is de
struction to fraud in every sphere, and
were it not for the vigilance,
and the fidelity of the independent
press, avarice, monopoly, interest and
taxes would enslave the country be
yond the hope of redemption. In con
clusion I will say (as might be expec
ted but in truth) I am personally a
friend to you both.
We have now a railroad, (and I hope
there will be no trouble in identifying
its father;) everything is looking up;

Special to Cincinnati Comritefcfal.
Atlanta, Ga., May 28.—There is an
exciting phase in Georgia politics. The
Constitution this morning prints a let
ter from Hon.' Alex. H. Stephens, in
which he says lie will accept the nom
ination of the Democrats if tendered,
and that the telegram of Hon. Emory
Speer, which spites that Stephens
would accept th* nomination of the
Independents was unauthorized. At
this organized Democrats are jubilant.
The Post Appeal, however, the organ
of the Liberal movement in the South,
which is running Stephens, says this
afternoon that this action is playing
into the hands of the Liberals, and
that the Democrats have to take Ste
phens. Should the Democrats nomi
nate Stephens, and he accepts, that
will also make him a candidate of the
Liberals, who will have a full ticket for
State offices against tho organized
Democrats, and uroii them the fight
will be made with the head of the
ticket. This settled the Liberals hope
to carry three or fonreongressmen and
elect the Legislature.

Mr. Stephens, we think, is much
stronger with the voting masses in the
State than he i with the leaders of live
Democratic party, and if these leaden
do not, by the manipulation of the pri

A Valuable Invention If It
“pedal to Tlmea-Demoorot.
Cincinnati, May 24.—Tho Gazette
has an account of an invention by Dr.
Isidor Kitze, of this city. He is now
showing his friends r small model rail
road, a patent for which has been gran
ted him in IFashington, which he
claims will prevent accidents from col
lision of trains. It can also he used as
a warning to approaching trains in case
of broken bridges or land slides. It is
intended to be used wherever there is
a single track on curves, bridges, tun
nels and other dangerous places. In
such places a third rail, flat or T shap
ed, is laid between the two outer rails.
Each locomotive is equipped with an
electric battery, and the positive pale
connects by a small wheel with the
centre rail and the negative current
with one of the side rails. This is an
open circuit until another train ap
proaches when the circuit is comple
ted, and a bell is rung by a powerful
electric magnet. The steam whistle
shrieks, the most important air-brake
is automatically set and both trains
come to a slanstill without depend
ence on the vigilance of the conductor,
engineer or brakeman. If a bridge is
down or a tunnel blockaded, all that
will be neceseary will be to lay an iron
rod between the centre and side rail.
The circuit would then be closed and
the train either stopped or warned of
