The meeting here was in the na ture of a home-coming for Mr. Hol der, and he was here at the invita tion of the people of his home town i to make an address, outlining the campaign issues and answering some of the slanderous attacks being made upon him by his opponents. Mr. Holder arrived here from his duties at the State capitol about noon, and was given a warm recep tion by his many friends. A huge banner was stretched! across the public square, and era- j blazoned in enormous red letters was this slogan, “Holder for Gover- j nor.” In the court house grove, at j the .corner of South avenue .ad Washington street, loyal fellow townsmen had erected a large stage and decorated it with flags and flow ers. Out in front temporary seats for about a thousand persons had been constructed, but the seats were not sufficient to accommodate more than a small portion of the crowd. Conspicuous among those who oc cupied seats On the stage with Mr. Holder was J. J. Mitchell, of Harris burg district, Jackson county, Mr. Holder’s first school teacher. Mr. Mitchell, who is in the eighties, was given a special chair directly in front of Mr. Holder because of 'his impair ed hearing. He has been devoted to Mr. Holder throughout the latterV entire life and is most eager to see him become governor. Among those who were seated on the stage with Mr. Holder were: Captain J. H. Enftis, of Milledgeville, president of the state senate; J. C. Turner, president of thg.First Nation al Bank, of Jefferson; E. K. Lump kin, of Athens; E. M. McDonald, of Jefferson; Mayor W. H.

L. Collier of Ma con, and T. J. Shackelford of Athens. Music was furnished by a band from Athens. Mr. Holder made a ringing ad-i dresj, and was v wamly applanded. Space forbids our publishing the full text of his speech, hut he was strong in his assertain that there is but one issue in this campaign—whether the State shall be loaded down with a tremendous bond issue. Mr. Holder charged that selfish Their Golden Wedding (From Winder News) Fifty years ago last Tuesday, Au gust 24, Mr. J. M. Jackson and Miss Missouri Austin were married by Rev. Philip F. Lamar. Mr. Jackson was born on the west side of Beech creek. Dock Lay now owns the place, and Miss Missouri Austin was born on the east side of the creek, where J. W. Casper now resides. These two fine citizens were born in this section, reated in this sec tion, and have lived in this section all of their lives. They were mar ried August 24, 1876, and moved to Jug Tavern in 1879. Mr. Jackson built the first store in the small vil lage. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson are the only survivors of their families. On August 24, fifty ye&rs ago the day was very much like last Tues day, raining about the same time of day and the sun shining about the same time. There was a bright cloud which sent down large drops and immediately the sun shown out. It looked 'like the firmament was fill ed with silver. The drops of rain were unusually iarge and the sun shown unusually bright. There are only five persons living that were at that wedding. Mrs. Jud sou Jackson, her daughter, Mrs. Birt Jacobs, and Charles, her brother, Mr. R. L. House, and Miss Phoebee Hardi gree, who later married Mr. Carruth. She and Mr. Carruth were attend ants, also Mr. Z. F. Jackson and Miss Josephine Austin. Mrs. J. M. Jackson was the first girl that Mr. Jackson ever visited. He was 3 years and fotir months old at the time. His mother took him with her to see Mrs. Austin, and Mrs. Jackson was a babe in her mother’s arms. There were no buggies in those days, so he had to ride horse back in his mother’s lap. One thing that impressed Mr. Jackson on that trip, and that was a beautiful white door knob on the front door. To these fine citizens the best wish es of a host of friends is extended. May they celebrate their diamond jubilee. Mr. Edwin Tribble, who has been attending Mefcer Summer school, is at home for a short visit before re turning to Mercer to begin his studies as a member of the v senioi class. special interests, \fliich would reap vast profits from a state bond issue, were behind the opposition to him. He declared that under the law the "State highway board has 786 miles of additional state highway to allot and that it will allot every mile of it. He said that the intense activity of the Macon Telegraph against him is explained by the expectation of the paper’s editor to be chairman of the state highway board in the event the Holder opposition is successful. He said the present governor, who had sought to oust him as chaiman of the state highway board, had since endeavored to entice him from his op position to bonds by offering to make him chairman of a bond commission to spent $70,000,000. He said that his opponent from his home county had offered to -retain him as chairman of the highway board if he would not run for governor. He declared he is running his own race and is not allied with any other candidate nor in combination with any one. He shewed that the highway de partment had,made almost phenomen al progress since he became chair man of the board. / He pointed out that beginning next year there would be available $13,- 000,000 a year for highway purposes. He announced his support of a program of educational expansion— both in the common schools and in stitutions of higher learning. He declared in favor of strengthen ing the banking laws of the state so as to give the greatest possible meas ure of protection to the deposits of the people. He said he had not made any pro mise of any office to any persons and would not make any such promise. He announced his opposition to any increase in taxation. He declared he would not call any extra session of the legislature unless matters of gravest necessity required i immediate attention by that body. He said he would advocate the eli mination of all waste and duplication in the state’s activities and would advocate the economical handling of all the state’s moneys.

Long at the Methodist church on Sunday at 11 a. m. He occupied the pulpit in the absence of the pastor, Rev. L. B. Linn, who was away in discharge of his duties at a camp meeting. Rev. Long chose for his subject “The Life of Four Dimensions,” bas ing his thought on the comparison of the lives of Methuslah and Christ— the former covering a period of nine hundred years, and the latter only thirty years. He pictured the life of Christ, its length, breadth, width and depth, in beautiful language, and showed the lives of every one must be four-square in every particular. His sermon was heard with much at tention and interest, and many ex pressions of approval and congratu lation were extended the young preacher at its close. Jefferson delights to honor this Jackson county boy, who has chosen tp work in the Master’s vineyard, and whose efforts to prepare himself for this noble calling have met with such wonderful success.

Holder Is Indorsed By How rd Ennis in Jefferson Talk Captain Howard Ennis, mayor of Milledgeville and president of the Georgia atatc senate, in a short ad dress here Saturday afternoon strong ly indorsed John N. Holder for gov ernor and declared he will sweep Georgia by an unprecedented ma jority. Captain Ennis, who was on the platform while Mr. Holder spoke, was called upon by many members of the great crowd after Mr. Holder concluded. Responding in a brief speech, Captain Ennis said: “I live at Milledgeville, 30 miles from Macon, and a reader of the Macon Telegraph might assume that no one but Carswell has a chance in the governor’s race. I served in the legislature with both Mr. Cars well and Mr. Holder. Mr. Carswell dives but 20 miles from me. | “I selected Mr. Holder ns my choice for governor when I considered the records and abilities of both men. “I am sure the old ship of state will be safe in his hands and I am also sure Mr. Holder will sweep the state by an unprecedented majority. “Let me tell you a little about that senate investigation of the charges against Mr. Holder. I war. president of the senate and living within 30 miles of Macon, I knew Editor Anderson, of the Macon Tele graph. I knew of his rabid charac ter and animosity to everyone who would not bow to him and knowing of this I made especial efforts to get the best possible committee to investigate the charges against Mr. Holder. I appointed on this com mittee Senator Collier, of Mr. An derson’s own district, and one of the best men in Georgia. I named as chairman of this committee Senator Hutchinson, who preferred the charg es against Mr. Holder, and who in troduced the resolution calling for an investigation. I also najn-'d on this committee Senator Dickson, a friend of mine from Jenkins county and a long time associate in the leg islature, an honorable and high class man, and two north Georgia senators high character and ability. “I requested this committee to go thoroughly into the charges and make an unbiased report. The report wad made and Mr. Holder was exornerat ed. My mind was entirely satisfied. “I am charged by some with sup porting ring politicians—Yes, I am in the good government ring. In my city, county and state I stand for good government and I stand for John Holder, who I know will give Georgia good government.” BRIDGE PARTY GIVEN RECENTLY BY MRS.
