Governor Slaton has ordered a
survey made of the line between
Butts and Jasper counties. The
purpose of the survey is to establish
a .correct line between the counties,

Jasper first tried to rob Butts coun

JasjJbr county hascontended that

the correct line, and has held up
the taxes for that reason. The
controversy never started until the
taxes from the big dam were paid
and it seems that the attempt is
only a result of Jasper’s inordinate
The survey will begin in the
lower part of the county and will
take in the space occupied by the
big dam. There is little doubt but
that Butts will be sustained, and
