THE COUNTIES DEBT.
We come now to pay our respects
to “A Citizen” who gave the
public some of his views in the last
issue of the Jacksonian as to the
payment of the indebted ess of the
County. ‘‘A Citizen” says there are
two sides to this question. Yes,
there are two sides. One is to pay it,
and the other is not to pay if you can
get out doing s'). We presume that
It comes perfectly natural to ‘‘A Citi
zen to take the side of not paying it if
you can get out of it. That is the
side of the question that ,- A Citizen”
generally takes with those who do
not know him and ignorantly fall into
extending him credit.
We will not. disclose the name of
“A Citizen,” but when we tell the
readers of The Jacksonian that he is
an individual who pays only those
debts he is compelled to pay, then
his ‘‘hot air”letteron the ‘‘Count!©’*
Debt” will have but little effect. Now
Mr. “A Citizen” no one wishes to cast
any reflection on the “highmindness”
of these men who are now filling the
office of County Commissioners, nor
do we mean to say they are dishon
W just mean to say that the HON
EST citizens of "Butts Cos. do not ap
prove of the position taken by Mr.
Gaston and Mr. Asbury, towit: refus
ing to, as County Commissioners, to
acknowledge this debt as valid and
good against tho County, and take
steps to pay it when the money can be
raised by taxation.
The Citizens of Butts approve of the
position taken by Mr. J. M Maddox,
who stands for the payment of the
debt when it can be paid. Mr. “A
Citizen” says no amount of abuse, or
law suits can force them (meaning
the County Commissioners) to violate
their oaths or bow the knee to the
If paying an honest debt, one for
money borrowed, is bowing the knee
to the money power, then bow and
This would not be bowing the knee
to the money power. It would be
only paying an honest debt for bor
rowed money. What differ nee does
it make, whether you borrow from a
Lazzuars or a Dives, HONESTY de
mands we repav it and DISHONEST Y
says not repay it. Now Mr. “A Cit
izen no one has intimated that we
want the Commissioners to pay this
debt out of their/‘life timework.”
We said and we again repeat it: EV
ERY HONEST citizen of Butts Cos.
wants the County Commissions.s co
acknowledge this claim as just and
due and owing by the County, and
to pay it when the money can he
raised by taxation.
Now Mr. ‘A Citizen” whether this
is a ooliticul matter or not, tho peo
ple are going to make so, and if
tuese commissionere don't make an
effort to pay tins debt out of Butts
County’s funds when the ballotß are
counted next election, those who
have stood against oayment will
i started to say thirty
cents but will say they will look like
men who once were in office.

THE OUTLOOK iN CHINA
BY REV. S. P. WIGGINS.
(Continued from last week )
Ab che very first General Confer*
ence of the M. E. Church South, held
in Petersburg, Vu., in May 1846,
missionery work was enterprlsed, and
Rev. Chas. Taylor, of the South Car
olina Conference was accepted as *
missionary for China. He sailed with
Benjamin Jenkins as a colleague, in
1358, and opened work in Shanghai*
They began talking to the peopl#
on the streets, iu front of temples,
etc., and finally opened up a chapel*
The first convert proved to be a man
of splendid ability and marked piety.
He became an eloquent and useful
native preacher, and his name should
be held in precious memory by all
Southern Methodists —itisLiew Siett
Other missionaries were sent out ia
the 50’s, among them Rev’s. Young
J. Allen and J. W. Lambuth, with
their wives. But the work was slow
and difficult; and the climate very
severe on the missionaries, some died
and others were compelled to return
home. The Civil vVar in the U. f*
cut off the supplies and the mission
aries were left to support themselve#
or starve. What courage, and whato
a love for the benighted heathen ib
must have required for Allen, and
Lambuth and Wood, with their wives
and children dependent on them. tt>
have remained at their posts of duty*
with not a dollar, (por even a letter)
from the home land for years.
They supported their families by
teaching and translating for the gov
ernment officials. However, in th#<
end this proved a providential open
ing, for it brought these men into ths
confidence of the influential and of
ficial Chinese. And today Dr. Young;
J. Allen is regarded with the esteem
by the ruler in China, who have con
ferred upon him the highest ranks of
honor. Surely every Georgian ought
to feel proud and honoied over this
son of our state who stands today
one of the most distinguished states
men of the whole Eastern continent,
and among the toreraost missionaries
of the world.
Spaae forbids any account of ths
other Georgians, among wuoni ars
Anderson, Burke, Loeh, Park, anA
th sainted Laura Haygood.
At the end of the first 21 years
there were left on the field only two
missionories and their wives, two na
tive preachers, three stations and 6(F
members. But re-inforcementscame>
and tho work began to grow. By 1902
there were (counting the wives) 52
missionaries, &1 native helpers, 52
organized Churches, with 1.944 mem
bers, and nearly 2 000 Sunday School
pupil?; besides day school*, two col
leges, and a hospital, with over S2BO,
000.* worth of property. And last
years reports are even more encour
All missionaries are hopeful for
China. She will be won to Christ, if
the Church arises to her great oppor
tunity. “In the last 85 years tho
converts have increased 2,000-fold J
at thesamc rate in another 85 yeara
there will be in China26,ooo,ooo com
municants, and 100,000,000 adnerentai
—more than are now in the U. S.”
