Interesting- Exercises at the Olympit
The O yir.pic theatre wits fi led to tie
utmost capacity thia afternoon to pay
respect to the dead heroes of the Con
federacy. A larger and more appre
ciative audience never before aseetn
bled on a like occasion in Griffin.
The Ladies Memorial Association
anti Daughters of Confederacy deceive
great credit for the great success in
their arrangements for this occasion.
The stage in the opera house was
decorated most beautifully with flow
ers and evergeens
At 2 :40 o’clock the procession was
formed in front of the Griffin R'flee
Armory and marched to to the opera
house while the band played a beauti
ful and appropriate selection.
The procession was a very noticea
ble one, for the public schools were
more than three hundred strong, and
each child carried a bouquet of flowers
to be placed upon the grave of some
Capt. David J. Bailey called the au
dience to order, and announced the
opening of the exercises by a selection
from the bend, after which Rev. T. W.
O'Kelley offered up a very beautiful
Hon. R T. Daniel then introduced
the speaker, in which he upheld the
true, loving custom of the South, in
paying tribute to her Confederate
dead. He said so long as the pure,
white flowers of spring shall blossom,
will the South decorate these graves
on Memorial Day.
Mr. Daniel said the Daughters of
the Confederacy and the Lillies Me
morial Association were most fortun
ate in securing as an orator on this
occasion Hon. Mr. Pace, of Covington,
whom he then introduced.
Col. Pace’s speech was an eloquent
piece of composition and oratory, as
was demonstrated by the perfect at
tention accorded him by hie large au
He said that thirty-three years ago
a day was inaugurated for the paying
of tributes to the Codfederate soldiers,
by a woman, and since that day it
had grown dearer and more beloved
in the hearts of the southern people.
The truest and highest tribute to these
men should be expressed not in words
but in silent emotions of the heart.
Col. Pace grew more eloquent as he
advanced in his speech, His compar
ison between the soldiers of the South
and those of the world brought loud
applause. The closing remarks and
tribute to the soldiers buried in our
cemeteries caused many an old veteran
to drop a tear in remembrance of the
days when men fought not for money
and glory, but for home protection
Rev. W. G. Woodbridge then pro
nounced the benediction after which
the procession again formed and ad
journed to the soldiers cemetery where
the graves were decorated and salute 8

Punishment Must be Severe.
Sam Hose has bsen caught and
dealt with in a manner that should be
a warning to all negroes. It should
be distinctly understood that it is the
wdi and intention of our men to pro
tect those who are dearer to our hearts
than life itself, at the cost of good rep
utation, and every one who is guilty
of the awful crime for which Hose was
executed will be disposed of in that
same way Even then it has no ten
dency to alleviate the crime it seems.
But were lynching done away with
entirely, and the law were to take
Us course, these horrifying atroci
ties would be perpetrated every day
and those women who are left at home
ln the rural districts when the bus
band is in the field would be in more
peril than now. Lynching, therefore,
dees to a considerable degree, check
the crime. In fact it is the only way
with which to deal with the inhu
mane brutes. The magnitude of the
time transcends the bonds of human

then lynching will cease. But the

, CONFEDERATE VETERANS MEET
c The Resignation of Commander Han
leiter Was Not Accepted
s Spalding County Camp, No. 510, U.
y S. Confederate Veterans, met in the
- council chamber this moi ning at 10 :30
o'clock and was called to order by the
commander, Col. W. R Hanleiter.
The chair stated that the meeting
i was called for the purpose of taking
3 action in regard to the reunion to be
i held in Charleston on 11th, 12th and
. 13th ot next months, and to elect an*
s other commander of the camp. In
. tendering his resignation he was not
rebuking the camp for its lack of sup
s port, but thought some one else should
i be elected to the place of honor. It
i was not a wise policy to retain the
■ same officers indefinitely, and he
thought it would be better for the
camp to elect another commander.
> When Mr. Hanleiter took bis seal
I T. W. Flynt arose and said : “It is
f well known by all present that wo will
> not accept the resignation of our be
loved commander, so we will just pass
■ that matter by and proceed with the
i other business demanding our alien*
. Upon the motion of D. W. Patter
son, the resignation of Mr. Hanleiter
was not accepted.
Mr. Hanleiter said he would acqui
i esce in the matter until the camp
could secure a larger attendance, but
h» wished they had taken other action
in the matter.
An invitation from the Daughters
of the Confederacy was accepted to
join in the parade to the soldiers cem
etery in the afternoon.
A letter was read from the executive
- committee of the Charleston reunion
1 association, asking to be informed as
> to how many veterans from this camp
would attend the reunion.
The chair was authorized to appoint
i five delegatee to represent the camp
■ at the reunion, and announce their
names at next meeting.
T. W Thurman was appointed a
committee of one to secure appropriate
badges to be worn by ail members of
this camp who would attend the reun
B N. Barrow made an appeal to
those present to take more interest in
the meetings of the camp. He said
the old Confederate veterans could not
expect to be here long. They were
dropping out of the ranks at every
turn. He loved the old confeds and
wished he could meet with them often
er. There was not as much life in this
camp as there should be, and he was
in favor of getting up something to
bring the men together frequently.
D W I’atferson heartily endorsed
the wo r ds of Mr. Barrow, and suggest
ed that they give a big barbecue at
Camp Northen every summer—some*
time in July. They gave one, two
years ago, which was a grand success
and there would be no difficulty in
securing sufficient money to have an
other this summer.
Several other speeches wi re made,
and all were heartily in favor of hav
ing the barbecue, but action was des
ferred until next meeting, which will
be held on Saturday, May 6th, at 2

Summer Time Approaches
Have you thought where you are going
this summer? No! Well, before it is too
late, let us call your attention to Salt Lake
City—the island city by the sea.
The late Col Cockerill once said to the
readers of the Cosmopolitan : “There are
three quaint and unique cities on the con
tinent, Quebec, St. Augustine and Salt
Lake,” and to this he might have truthful
ly added—and Salt Lake is the most
quaint and unique of them all.
To the visitor, it is all that Col. Cocker
ill describes it. To the summer resorter,
it offers sea bathing in < Ireat Salt Lake, a
mile above sea level, all the curative prop
erties of Hot Springs, Sulphur Springs,
etc. ; a delightful temperate climate with
cool nights ; a walk or drive through the
cannons and parks ; a glimpse of all that
is beautiful in nature, and all the advan
tages of a city of thrift, enterprise and

its Colorado connections, the Denver A
