Jones, of Jackson. He is now
sole press censor of that most
excellent and thriving city.—
The Georgia lawmakers seem
to be fond of oratory, having
heard from Hoke Smith, Dr.
Soule and Tom Hardwick in suc

business would suit the folks
back home just as well.
Editor Jones, of Jackson,
having secured the newspa
per field exclusively in his
home town, we shall expect
to see a much better paper
over there. Mr. Jones is a
live newspaper man and de
deserves great credit for the
success which he is achiev
ing.—Griffin News and Sun.
Thanks. We’ll tighten up our
belt and try to give the people of
Butts county a paper nearly as
good as The News and Sun.
The Dodge County Herald, East
man’s new paper, has suspended
publication. The Herald was a
good local paper and made a brave
fight to gain a foothold, but East
man already had one good paper
in The Times-Journal, and there
was no room for another, so one
had to go. It takes a mighty
good town these days to furnish
sufficient patronage to keep one
paper alive, much less two.—

J. Doyle, Jones of the Jackson
Progress, has adquired control of

retired from the newspaper bus

mits that he is not a newspaper
man and that there is not suffi
cient business in Jackson to
maintain two papers, all of
which is very true. While
the Argus was the oldest publi
cation, it is the case of the sur
vival of the fittest. —Griffin News.
C. L. Carter, of Jackson, who
has been recently running the
Jackson Argus, has surrender
ed his lease and henceforth
both the Argus and the Butts
County Progress will be run by
Editor Doyle Jones, of Jackson.
Mr. Jones is one of the best news
paper editors in Georgia and has
made the Progress one of the
most eagerly read and highly re
spected papers in the Empire
State. We congratulate Brother
Jones and wish for him the suc
cess which he so richly deserves.
