THE IlhRALl. _ _ Mir MKfearity.ABiy a4*plm»r —i b* b I wvUy HATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1892. HON. II. CL TURNER. The IIkrai.p is plowed to note the high esteem in which the gentleman whcne name appears at the head of thin paragraph u held by the prem through out the country. As second member on the most important committee of the House, Mr. Turner's j»osition as one of the foremost «nen of the times has been duly established, and the wisdom of his selection for this important position has been endorsed by his party colleagues ami political opponent*. We are proud that our district in so . ably represent**!. In fact our Georgia Congressmen arc in the front in all im portant legislation. Congrewitncn Wat son uml Livingston have introduced bills that Inok to the benefit of our section, and Speaker Crisp is regarded as (be fore front of the Democratic party of the House. GOV. NORTHEN AT JESIT. Jeriip was honered on the 19th by a visit from the Governor and Slate School t ’oinniissioner Bradwcll, Iwth of al partt y the pe The Chilian Trouble. Mr. Turner, of Georgia mays: “In the present state of the situation I see no decent pretext of war. The trouble grew out of a mere sailor’s brawl, such as is likely to occur on any similar occa sion. Italy has stronger grievances against ns for the New Orleans lynching than we hare against Chili for the Bal timore affair. The difficulty should be settled by diplomacy and not by force of arms.” WYX* THINKS THERE’LL BE WAR. Wynn, of Georgia: “The outlook points to war, but it should be avoided if {tOMible.” EVERETT OPPOSES IT TOO. Everett, of Georgia: “I fear we are going in that direction too last, so far as my understanding goes I am opposed to SENATOR OOP.I*>N'S VIEWS. Senator Fordon: “I am not prepared to express a positive opinion, but it would be a very expensive and inglo rious piece of business.” THE TRIBfNE-OF-ROME SCARED. There is a worse danger, far worse, threatening Rome than a freshet can possible by. There is an all-water route between Rome and Chili and what de fense has the former against the latter, e of war? Just think how easy it will 1»e for a Chilian man o’ war to line right up to Koine and shell the otises fiat to the ground ! And not a i.liceman doing guard duty down at the barf! Think, men and brethren, how- wily the blood-thirsty South American tvages could swoop down in the dead r night on the innocent and defenceless orkers on The Trilnme-of-Uoiiie, make isideration ccutive who \ wi regrass section Truly Georgia has a cultured gentleman, with broad anti lilieral views ujs»n every public ques- tion, and one who firmly believes tluit no section or citizens of our State should Ik- ignored. GLEANING TIIE NEWS. We have in every issue of The IIke- ald a modest beading, “News of the Week,” which probably conveys to out readers some considerable information of events happening all over the world, but little idea of the labor entailed on the editor in selecting and condensing three short paragraphs from the lengthy daily dispatches of the associated press, anti other sources. The Herald receives twenty-two dailies regularly and forty-three- weekly exchanges, and it is seldom that any one of these two hundred and over weekly arrivals is turned off* the editor’s desk without being scanned, if only hurriedly, for any item of (Kissible interest to subscribers.

Well, the pie ure draw n above does not lit our tram- The local editor of The Herald is ab editor-in-chief. book-keeper, proof reader, mailing clerk, exchange reader and bu— incas manager.

And it* we cannot go into the highways and byways in search of aocial, personal and local must get the news to come to mace this earnest request of all our ac quaintances, and of all who wish The Herald well, to assist us in making the local page of our town paper a live, spicy, complete and interesting epitome of the life of the place. We frankly acknowledge we cannot do this without your help, and we ask it in the interest of Waycraaa, which can not prosper as we all wish without a first-class newspaper.

Speaking of railroads reminds us that there are as great evils on other lines which might be remedied by legal pro vision. Why is it not as constitutional a restrain manufacturers, jobbers and Middlemen from charging more than a •ertain per cent., as it is to enact that -ailronds shall collect only a certain mileage? It is claim'd that skill is the only commodity with which the market is not at some time or other overstocked, and it is further argued that the law of supply and demand is the regulator of prices, and yet in the midst of plenty prices are high.

As Chairman of the World’s Fair Committee, the following extract from his report will give some idea of his plans: “The work of arrangement will be di vided out among various committees, each committee representing each line of resources, the specimens from which calculated to adorn the State’s display. For instance, I am appointing a commit tee on mines and mining, a committee on manufactories, one on agricultural products, one on fruits, (lowers and veg etables, one on art, one on woman' work, and one on ornamentation. “This committee on ornamentation will have in charge the task of putting the finishing touches on the general make-up of the Georgia display.
