Governor Candler has decided
not to order the Georgia State
Troops into camp this summer as
was comtemplated, but will let
the military fund go to the pay

not right that the troops should
give the state their service and
then be required to pay their own
EDITOR KNOWLES IS WRONG.
Editor Knowles, of the Rome Tribune, in his zeal to produce ar
gument against the establishment of a dispensary in Rome, alludes
i to the Barnesville dispensary as having been a failure from a finan
cial standpoint since its establishment, and states further that the
operating of the dispensary here has caused the recent failures of
I milks and factories and general financial depression.
Editor Knowles has been greatly misinformed. The Barnesville
dispensary has always been a financial success. That much can be
said in its behalf and no one who is correctly informed will dispute
it. True, the dispensary under its old management, owes something
for liquors but it was because the proceeds from the sale was used for
other municipal purposes, with the knowledge and consent of the
Jn no way, directly or indirectly, can any cotton mill or bank
failure be charged to the operation of the dispensary. Furthermore
tin- financial depression, of which Editor Knowles speaks, has never
existed here. Barnesville is known everywhere as one of the plucki
est and most enterprising cities in the state.
Tic News-Gazette is no ardent advocate of the dispensary sys
tem but makes these* statements, that tie* truth may be made known.
PROF. MERRITT’S CANDIDACY
We publish in this issue the an

State School Commissioner.
Prof. Merritt is at present Su
perintendent of 1 he pub] ic schools
of the city of Valdosta and of
Lowdnes county, and is one of the
best, known and most able mem
bers of his profession in the state.
He has been connected with the
public schools of Georgia for many
years and is familiar with every
branch of the educational work in
the state. His announcement is a
strong paper and speaks for itself.
Prof. Merrit being a teacher of
•many years experience and one
who lias studied the needs of
Georgia’s school system, the peo
ple of the state would do well to
place him at the head of the pub

Tim Murphy had run up a small

pay it and wanted a receipt.
“Oh, we never give receipts for

a pencil diagonally across it. “There
is your receipt,” he added.
“Bo ye mane that that settles it ?”

“Faith, and 1 thought as much,”
said Pat slyly.

COL. A. A. nURPHEY ANNOUNCES
FOR THE LEGISLATURE AND
GIVES REASONS WHY HE
IS A CANDIDATE.
To the People ok Pike County:
During the past three or four
months 1 have often been solicited
by many voters of Pike to run for
Since my name lias been men
tioned in this connection, numbers
of the good people of tin* county
have assured me of their hearty
support, if 1 should become a can
Jn addition to these requests
and the encouragement of support
tendered, I confess that I myself
have a bit of ambition to answer
the roll call and to speak and vote
for old Pike in the law-making
body of the state.
1, therefore, take this method
of publicly announcing my candi
dacy and to assure the white
voters of the county, one and all,
that I will appreciate their sup
port in the white primary to be
held during the year for the nom
ination of county officers.
In this connection, I desire to
congratulate, not only the white
people of Pike County, but the
white citizenship of the entire
state, that the white man’s pri
mary has become the settled pol

vocated white primaries for any
and all purposes in the southland.
Some Southern States have solved
the problem of white supremacy
by constitutional enactment of
property and educational qualifi
cations. It has remained for the
people of (ieorgia to settle this
vexatious question in their own
wav —and, in my humble opinion,
in a very effective and sensible
way, viz : Ruling the negro out of
politics by white primaries. This
plan lias successfully done the
work, without the expense of a
constitutional convention or the
bitterness of a constitutional elec
I am rejoiced that the day lias
come, in old Georgia, when the
white people can settle all their
differences, politically, without
the intervention of the negro vote.
There is virtually but one political
party in the southland. Call this
party democratic if you wish.
As Governor Candler says, we are
all democrats in Georgia and we
all should get together and stay
together in a white man's party

if he is nominated a third time

But my purpose is not to discuss
national politics. 1 desire simply
to heartily endorse the white
man’s primary in county as well
as in the state affairs. The dom

land. and all white aspirants for
office should submit their claims
