THE EVENING GALL. Vot X- No. 199 memorial day. Interesting- Exercises at the Olympit This Afternoon 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 hero. 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 prayer. 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 dience. 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 and rights. 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 fired by the Griffin Rifles. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the // Signature of 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 aw, and methods more severe must be r ‘“ <rtedto. When the crime ceases then lynching will cease. But the * T omeu of this country must and shall cave protection —Marietta Journal. , 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* i tion.” . 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 ion. 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 p. m.

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 commercial supremacy. 'Die RioGrande Western Railway, with its Colorado connections, the Denver A RioGrande and Colorado Midland rail roads, offer choice of three distinct routes through the very heart of the Rocky Mountains and the most magnificent scen ery in the world—not excepting the ia mous Alps. Those celebrated summer re sorts, Colorado Springs, Manitou, Glen wood Springs, eti , are located idon.t t? ; » route, and stop-overs are permitted. Low summer excursion rates t Salt Lake City can be obtained from all cities of the Union. Before deciding on your summer outing, write for descriptive pam phlets, etc., to E.

H j Morris and Eugene Ogletree visited Lon Beckham, of Liberty Hill, Sunday. Miss Leila Futral attended the box-party . given by the Misses Swint, at Orchard’ Hill, Saturday evening. Sir. and Mrs. Tcm Hiles visited the for mer’s sister, Mrs. Gossett, Monday. A good many of us attended the “tackey I party" at which Miss Bertha Maddox was ; was the graceful hostess, on last Saturday ; evening. Yes, that young man did go to “Fiori-j da” Monday, but says he failed to tind 3 I certain young ladies. He must remember I that girls joke sometimes. Without a doubt, some young man won ’ a heart Saturday evening. Wonder who ! it was? Prof. Morris went to Griffin Saturday. Can you tell us what has become of the Orchard Hill correspondent? Moved to Milner, I guess, with “rattle trap, twenty cents” and all. Eugene Ogletree visited friends near, Semper Sunday atternoon. Lon Beckham, of Liberty, called on Miss \ Leila Futral Sunday afternoon. The writer saw one of Akin's Corner's bright young ladkfs, sitting by the road- i side Sunday morning, watching for that I “ ” mad dog.
