JACKSON, GA. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1894.
BACON GROWING STRONGER.
From the Lawrenceville Nows.
The friends of Major A. O. Bacon
who have watched his race for the
United States Senate are gratified at
his increasing strength and growing
popularity with the masses. In all
sections of the state the people are for
him, as is evidenced by tbe strong
and many indorsements which he has
received in conventions and piimary
One of the surest indications of his
election is the fact that hi* strength is
not confined to any particular section.
He is as strong in north Georgia as
he is in central Georgia, mid his
friends are as numerous in south
Georgia aft they are in north Georgia.
The News is gratified at the turn
the race Is taking. Maj. Bacon is
eminently qualified in eyerv partic
ular to represent Georgia in the high
er branch of the federal legislature,
and richly deserves the honor at his
party’s hands. We feel that in plac
ing this high trust in his hands Geor
gia would honor herself and do simple
justice to ene of her ablest aDd most
We trust that tbe Georgia legislature
will obey the mandate or the poople
.andelect Maj. Bacon on first ballot
without any wraugling.
CARD FROM E. E. FOUND.
Hon. S. C. McCandless,
Chairman Poyulist Ex. Cora.
In reply to your letter in
he last issue of the Argus, 1 will
state that the law prescribes who
shall hold elections for Governor and
members of the legislature. The law
recites that Justice of Peace and two
freeholders shall perform that duty,
and as chairman .of the Den. Ex.
Committee of Butts Cos I have no
authority to dictate in the premises.
I am confident that the election, as all
other elections that have been held in
Butts Co.will be conducted in all fair
ness, and that there will be a free
ballot and a fair count.

Clerk 8. O
From the Albany Herald.
Maj. D. J, Owen, ot Ty Ty,the erst
while drummer, who ia known to
everybody in southwest Georgia,
was in the city yesterday and was
seen in company with some of the
populists who had come to attend the
populist congressional convention.
But when the convention uret he was
not in it.
While the populist convention was
yet in session, a Herald scribe accosted
the Maj. with—
“ Look here Major, you are not one
ot the third party fellow's, are you?”
“Wel>,” said he dryly, as he look
the scribe by the hand and winked
iiis eye off at another man, “I told
them that if they would take a few
planks that I could give them and
mix ’em in with theirs, so as to have
a platform that everybody could stand
on, I would go along with them and
guarantee we’d win the 1 light. I
told ’em to fix their platform up right
and make a man’s note legal tender,
and when ever one of these banks or
goldbugs refused to take it and shell
out the money for it, make such re
fusal a penitentiary offense. And as
to the government ow’ning the rail
roads, I told ’em just the thing to do
was to make the railroads free and
let everybody lide tree and ship his
stutf free. Then to make the thing
1 complete, I told ’em they ought to
! make all the hash houses free, and
compel ’e to keep everything first
class, so that when the people were
riding about they wouldn’t be both
ered about getting grub and a place
to sleep. I told ’em equal rights to
none special priviiedges to all, was
what they wanted, and that if they’d
just fix up that sort of a platform and
send me to congress I’d guarantee
that in three weeks’ time I,d start a
train of sixty cars from Washington
loaded down with greenbacks, and
would scatter it alt along the route
from Washington to Ty Ty.

% THE REMEDY.
Eds Argus : Inasmuch as America
Columbia and Observer haa written
on the finances of this country and all
seem fully to realize the situation, but
cannot give a satisfactory remedy I
will suggest to those gentlemen that
they do not go back to the cause. Ob
server tells oue maximatic truth
when he says. “We have legislated
our selves into it, aud we must legis
late ourselves out of it.” But the
trouble about this is, that the legisla
tion of which he complains is the na
tural remit of a fundamental error in
our incipiency as a government. If
the foundation of a building is wrong
it will be wrong as long as the build
ing stands though you paint it a
thousand times. When we fix the
amount of money on gold or
silver or go'd and silver aud that teo,
simply to be coined we make a mis
take whose evil effects will be felt
more and more as time rolls on. We
simper fix the amount of' money to be
coined on a haphazard foundation
and it would be just as sensible to say
we will coiu as many dollars as crows
fly over a certain field •to say we
will coin all the gold and silver that
may happen to be found. It is the
duty of this government to make
money out of the cheapest material
that it can procure, ami to not only
fix the amount to be issued but see to
it that all s hat is issued is put in to
immediate and legitimate circulation.
So you see our mistake is not so
much in legislation as it is in the
adoption of onr constitution. The
conditions of issuing money should be
such that no mau could hoard money
without actual loss. This ceuld be
easily accomplished by considering
money lost if it disappeared for 10
many years. Now observer don’t you
think the best way is to go to the bot
tom at once and correct the evil there?
The only sensible plan is to issue mon
ey according to the demands of business
and some day we will be compelled
to do that, don’t you Ihink the sooner
