Some of the colored laborers have
struck for a dollar per day. They are
not satisfied with 75 cents for a days
work. The strike has not amounted
to much as yet, other hands having
been secured at the usual price. Some
of the negroes have been influenced to
quit work, by the leaders, whome we
learn are Gus Goodman, Monroe Moore
and others. Our citizens, or at least a
number of them, say they will not give
these influential colored strikers work
at any price, and more-over, if they
come around their works threatening
laborers, they will make it “warm
enough for them to seek a cooler cli
mate.” We would advise our color
ed people to desist from this course ;
75 cents per day is a p.:etty fair price
for common day labor, and if the scar
city of labor demands it, they will get
better prices without any trouble. As
soon ns crops are laid by, labor will be
still more plentiful and cheaper.

Doctor, we think, is conscientious in
his opinions regarding the stock law,
and if he is wrong it is an error of hand
and not the heart. While he did not
introduce the bill into the legislature,
he offered among others, the most ap
propriate, and in fact the only clause
in the “stock law” that protects the
tenant. There are plenty of land own
ers who would deprive you of all your
stock, hence the following amendment
was offered by Dr. Mays.
“Sec. VII. Be it further enacted, That
each owner or proprietor of lands in
any Malitia district adopting the pro
visions of this Act, who shall rent his
lands, or establish a system of tenant
ry thereon, shall furnish pasturage for
at least one cow and calf, for the fami
ly of each tenant provided that said
tenant shall do his proportionate part
This will relieve the minds of many
who are under the impression that
land lords were not compelled to fur
nish pasturage. It is true you are
limited to but one cow, but if you will
keep a good cow, she will give you
more and better milk than three or
four sorry cows, and be of less expense
We learn the lessee of the State’s
property at Indian Springs, and the
council of that place have had some
trouble. The Spring is very inaccess
ible for the citizens on this side of the
creek in very wet weather, and the
council contracted for a foot bridge
to be built from the hill, across the
States property to the Springs, it seems
without consulting the lessee, who
became offended and would havo the
work torn up as fast as the hands could
do it, and finally ordered them to stop.
The council then got out a bill of in
junction restraining the lessee and com
pleted the bridge. The bill will be
heard before Judge Stewart.
It is astonishing that objections
should he raised by any-body, at any
improvement fiat might be put there.
We arc sure there is every thing to be
gained by it and nothing to lose, as
there is anything else but improve
ments on the reserve. And what is
more astonishing, there has been no
improvements made towards beautify
ing and making the place attractive
and accessible, under the provisions
of the lease. And what is still more
astonishing, we say astonishing, we are
not astonished at anything Colquitt
does ; consequently it is not astonishing
that he has neglected to investigate
the lease of the Indian Springs Reser
vation, notwithstanding, he was so in
structed by the last legislature, in a
bill introduced by our representative.
That the provisions of the lease has
not been complied with, is unequivo
cally so, and the matter demands the
attention of the State, and more par
ticularly the people of Butts county.
It is a valuable piece of property, and
should be made respectable for the con
venience of the whole State. The peo
ple of Indian Springs are particularly
interested in this matter. Col. Lamar,
it is true, is a man of some note and
considerable wealth. But he has not
done bis duty under the lease of this
property, and a 1 lie cares for is what
he makes off of it. The interest he has
manifested proves it; he would’nt care
if people had to mire up to their knees in
mud and filth, lease or no lease, so he
pocketed the proceeds, and carry them
off to Macon where they will never be
of any benefit to Butts county. Indian
Springs could be made the Hour of the
South, as a summer resort. It is free
to every-body, and our people and the
legislature should see that it is made
perfectly and easily accessible jtf|
beautiful, and adorned with evcrvA
necessary to make it attrac'd; V
pleasant. See that the pro\Jfiß
lease is carried out to the# \
