OF GOVERNOR _
Tuesday, April 15, Will Be
Georgia Day at Charles
State of Georgia, Executive Office,
“At the suggestion of Mr. J. C.
Hemphill, manager of the Department
of Promotion and Publicity, I have
designated Tuesday, April 15th, as
Georgia Day at the Exposition.
“Charleston has the best and most
tasteful Exposition buildings and
grounds I have ever seen south of
Philadelphia. The exhibits are very
fine, and the people of Georgia will
find it both pleasant and profitable to
spend a day or two at least at the
Exposition. Besides, South Carolina
is our neighbor; tens of thousands of
her sons and daughters are now citi
zens of Georgia, and we should give
our encouragement to her enterprise
by attending her great Exposition at
least one day. Let Georgia capture
Charleston on the 15th of April. The
‘lvory City’ will surrender to the
‘Crackers’ without a struggle."
ALLEN D. CANDLER,
GEORCIA DAY AT EXPOSITION.
Don’t Forget the Day—Tuesday, April
GEORGIA AND SOUTH CAROLINA.
Something more than the ordinary
and usual comity of states has always
existed between Georgia and South
Carolina. From the earliest days of
struggle and vicissitude, when the wil
derness and its wilder inhabitants
were to be subdued, down to the pres
ent piping times of peace and indus
trial development, the two common
wealths have been closely knit togeth
er. This is in some measure attribu
table to the fact that many of the best
families of Georgia moved from South
Carolina, the latter being the older
colony. The identity of soil and cli
matic conditions, the similiarity of
speech and thought, the community
of political interests and the long
boundary line, have all contributed to
strengthen the ties. A call for as
sistance from either has ever met a
prompt response from the other. Dur
ing the last two decades the call has
come more frequently from the west
ern than from the eastern bank of the
Savannah, but now South Carolina has
fixed a tryst and bidden her sister to
Georgia has been the successful
holder of three great Expositions and
on each occasion South Carolina has
been called upon for aid and sympa
thy, and each time has responded.
In the ancient city of Charleston
South Carolina has builded the very
crown and flower of all southern Expo
sitions, and calls with confidence upon
Georgia for a return of its good of
fices In the past. April 15th has been
set aside as “Georgia Day” at the
Exposition, the governor has selected
and proclaimed it, the Exposition au
thorities have gladly accepted it, and
now let all Georgians, by their pres
ence at Charleston, ratify it. We owe
It to our brethren to help to make
their great enterprise a financial suc
cess; we owe it to our self respect to
put our seal of approval on such a dis
play of nerve and enterprise as that of
Charleston, and we owe It to our sec
tion that we support to the full ex
tent of our ability so laudable and
creditable an enterprise, emanating
as it does from our own blood kin, in
tended to build up our entire country
and mark its progress.
At the present low railroad rates
there are 100,000 people in Georgia
who can afford to go to Charleston,
get full value for their money and at
the same time help to make a financial
success of that which is unquestiona
bly the most perfect industrial and
spectacular enterprise the south has
ever known. Every town should have
Its committees of men and women ar
ranging .( >c excursion to Charleston

and help them.
