AN OUTRAGEON JUSTICE
RESOLUTIONS ON THE DEATH
OF W. H. C. HAMMOND.
At the regular meeting of ancient
York Lodge No-F & A M the Commit
tee duly appointed to draft suitable
resolutions expressive of our loss as
masons, in the demise of our brother
W. H. C. Hammond who departed
this life on the Bth day of March 1907
report as follows;
We as Masons recognize the decree
of our God, and therefore sorrow not,
but as obedient children, humbly bow
to that August Command which is :
4 ‘Come unto me all who are weary
and heavy laden and I will give you
rest” The end of man is not death,
death is only a long 3leep in which
the body rests from the variegated
labors of this life. Why then should
we sorrow when a companion falls on
this sleep. God will awake the body
In his own good time!
When by the eternal decree our
brother passed from this life we miss
ed his presence among us as one who
was prompt and faithful to the vows
of our brotherhood. One who in his
dailey life not only exemplified the
walk of the lowly Nazarine in his
teachings while on earth, but one who
at the same time lived the life of his
mansonic teachings. To say that he
was a mason is only to sav he was a
just and Upright man. What more
can we say? No eulogy is necessary
to impress his virtues upon masons,
among whom he was well known as
an ardent woaker in the promulgation
of its tenets. Our deceased brother
was raised to the sublime degree of a
master mason in Ringold lodge in
Spaulding County in the year 1882
over which lodge his father presided
as Master for many years. Brother
Hammond filled all the offices in the
Lodge and was a part Master at time
of his death. We will miss his wise
counsels but must submit to the in
Therefore be it resolved that we
cause these resolutions to be publish
ed in our County papers, and a copy
tinder the seal of this Lodge be fur
nished to the family of our deceased
brother and a copy be preserved in
the Archives of the lodge.

TO BRIDGE OGMULGEE RIVER
Notice is hereby given that I will
go before the Commissioners of Butts
and Jasper Counties and ask their
co-operation in building a bridge a
cross Ocmulgee river.
The co-operation I will ask will be
as follows: If I can induce the Bibb
Power Cos to build a bridge at some
point between the Loyd Shoals and
Keys old ferry at the most practical
and accessible point, this to be deter
mined by their engineers then the
Commissioners of the two Counties to
enter into a cantract for 20 years to
give the Bibb Power Cos credit each
year on their taxes for a sum equal
to the interest on the cost of the
bridge, and make it a fine bridge.
I don’t think any citizen of Butts
or Jasper County will object to such
an arrangement as the investments
to be made will be on the line of the
two Counties and both equally inter
I suppose it is pretty generally
known that Mr, Howe and myself
have been for some time buying up
lands along the river for back water
priveleges, and I am glad to say we
nave generally been met in a spirit of
friendly co-operation and fairness.
There are many citizens in Butts
County who know of the influence I
have weilded in having deveiopements
made in this County, and they can
bear me out in the statement that I
have naver worked for an enterprise
that proved detrimental to the indi

ted by the same spirit. So we ask
the hearty co-operation of all our
people in the great deveiopements we
are working for. If the contract is
made, and the bridge built, it will be
so constructed as to admit of the pas
safie of trolley cars from one County
to the other.
The buildiDg of this electric plant
will be by far the largast investment

JACKSON, GEORGIA. FRIDAY, MAY 17th 1907.
Mayor of Jackson Prostitutes
His Office to Gratify
FINES EDITOR OF THE JACK
SONIAN FOR ARTICLE AP
PEARING IN PAPER, AND
NOT FOR DISORDERLY
CONDUCT FOR WHICH HE
There is much talk of prosecuting
Wall for maladministration.
In the issue of May 3rd the Jacksc
nian published an article commend
ing the blacksmiths who were adver
tising in The Jacksonian which pre
cipitated an assault on the Editor
by D. F. Thaxton, The Editor defen
ded himself as best he could consider
ing the fact that he was in bed all
day the day before. The matter
would have passed as all other unim
portant matters do, had not the May
or brought charges of disorderly con
duct against the parties, and after
going througn the mockery of a trial,
discharged Mr. Thaxton. and fined
Mr. Andrews ten dollars notwith
standing the fact that Thaxtons own
statement would convicthim for as
sault with intent to murder.
Mr Andrews appealed to a hearing
before the council, and the appeal
was granted. Tne council met to
hear the case; but in the meantime
the mayor and the city attorney, for
some unstated cause had decided
that it wouldn’t do for the case to go
before the council, so they raised the
question as to the legality of the ap
peal, Mr. Andrews seeing that the
mayor and city attorney were groping
around in darkness and ignorance,
asked for a continuance of the case
until he could employ <ouncil to show
them where they were at. The may
or suddenly rescinded his former de
cision, stating that the right of ap
peal was unfounded, adjourned court,
and walked out.
Much bitter feeling is engendered
and Wall is severely censured by the
whole town and surrounding country
for gross injustice, and prostituting

A Famous Drummer.
Probably the most remarkable drum
mer who ever lived was Jean Henri,
the famous tambour major of the Em
peror Napoleon. One of his feats was
to play on fifteen different toned drums
at the same time in so soft and harmo
nious a manner that, instead of the
deafening uproar that might have been
expected, the effect was that of a novel
and complete instrument. In playing
he passed from one drum to the other
with such wonderful quickness that
the eyes of the spectators could hardly
follow the movement of his hands and
body.—London Standard. .

The closing exercises of the schools
at Locust Grove begin Friday May
17., and continues through Tuesday
Both the Grammer School and the
High School have injoyed a year of
unusually prosperity. During the
year a handsome and splendidly e
quipped buiding has been erected
for the grammar school and ohe
attendance has been greater
than ever before. The HigTTSchool
has spent nearly $20,000.00, in im
provements and the attendance bas
been 20% greater than last year.
Five states and Cuba are represen
ted among the pupils of Locust Grove
Nearly half the Counties in Georgia
have had pupils in attendance here.
This wide territory from which the
school draws its patronage makes the
Commencement exercises of more
than loeal interest. Many visitors
always come to the Commencement

be larger than usual.
