Pursuant to a desire by many of the
-citizens of Waycross for the name of
Col. J. I* Sweat to be- brought before
the Democratic congressional convention,
the Herald sent out last week a num
ber ot letters to prominent citizens
throughout the adjacent counties for ex
pressions of their views on CoL Sweat’s
possible candidacy. Following are the
replies thus far received:
Stockton, Ga. March 5.—We think
Col. Sweat would make a good represen
tative for the 11th district in Congress,
lie is young, competent, energetic and a
worker; stands firm and sound on the
Democratic platform, and would be a
credit to his constituents.
J. C. Humphries.
Clinch Haven, Ga. March 4.—I
consider Hon. J. L. Sweat as being fully
qualified to fill the position, and know
of no other man that would more ably
represent the district. II. P. Mattox.
Dupont, Ga., March 2.—Henry G.
Turner of Brooks comity is my first
choice for Congress from the 11th dis
trict. Col. J. L. Sweat is my second
choice. He is a good and safe man, and
stands firm on the old Jeffersonian De
mocracy, and I shall be satisfied wifh
either, but I shall pledge myself to no
man for Congress who does not come
square out as they have done. The peo
ple should understand whom they are
voting for before it is too late.
Statexville, Ga., March 5.—Hon.
J. L. Sweat of Waycross, would be
perfectly satisfactory to me for Con
gress, as I believe him to be a high toned
gentleman and a coming man, and I
think he could get a delegation from
this county if he is before the people.
T. M. Prescott.
. Waresdoko, Ga., March 5.—I am of
the opinion that Col. J. L. Sweat would
be fuljy able to sustain himself in Con
gress, yet I am unable at present to sa\
what his following might be.
L. C. Wilcox.
Statexville, Ga., March 2.—Hon.
J. L. Sweat of Waycross, is my first
choice for Congress, and in my judgment
the 11th district could not do better,
while she has plenty of congressional
timber, than to elect him to the next
Congress. If he is in the race I will do all
and everything in my power to help se
cure him the nomination.

A South American Eagle In Georgia.
Applixg County, Ga., March 1.
Editor Herald: The largest South
American bald eagle known in this part
of the country, was killed by Mr. Madi-
Lee, a well known citizen of Ap
pling county, a tew days ago, near his
plantation. lie was measured and
weighed. He measured seven feet and
inch from point to point; two feet
ten inches from tail to bill; seven and
one-fourth inches from back to front
claw; two inches between the eyes, and
■ighed ten pounds. The supposition is
that he was hatched on the Andes moun
tains in South America.
He was what is known as the Bald
Eagle, and had a white head and tail,
making a very gay object sailing through
We think his death is worth quite a
little sum to the stock raisers of Appling
county, and we bid Mr. Lee do so again
at the earliest opportunity.*
Hurrah for Mr. Lee!—killed the big
gest eagle, owns the best breechloading
shot-gun and a horse twenty-eight years
Wireurass, Ga., March 4.—I think
the 11th district would make no mistake
having Col. Sweat to represent it.
• one would l>e pleased to help to send
him there. J. L. Morgan
Dupont, Ga., March 2.—I think
quite favorably of Col. Sweat. Can’t speak
definitely until after Clinch Superior
Court, when I will let you hear from i
at length. J. P. A. DuPont.
Statexville, Ga., March 2.—O. K.
If he can make the “landing.”
G. W. Peine.
Statenvillb, Ga., March 3.—I think
this county will be solid for Turner—i
else. J. C. Thompson.
Glexmore, Ga., March 4.—I believe
he would be an excellent representative.
S. E. Cribb.
Humphries, Ga., March 2.—Turner
first, Sweat second. J. H. Mattox.
Clinch Haven, Ga., March 8.—I
think Hon. J. L. Sweat fully competent
to fill that or any other position in our
governmental aflhirs, and we would con
sider our district as fortunate should he
be selected to represent it in Congress.
D. B. Paxton.
Folkstox, Ga., March 3.—Don’t
think we could find a better man^to send
to Congress than Mr. J. L. Sweat. I will
be pleased at his going.
J. W. Roddexberry.
Stockton, Ga., March 8.—I am for
J. L. Sweat for Congress first, last and all
the time; and Hill, of New York, for
President I can vote that ticket freely.

THE HILL BANKING SYSTEM.
Many plans have been proposed for
reforming our national banking laws,
among them the sub-treasury plan, the
“something better” or State banks of
Mr. Norwood, the postal banking system
of Mr. Baxter and the banking system
proposed by Mr. Thos. E. Hill, a Chica
go capitalist and philanthropist. To
this last system we will confine ourself,
for in it wc find the merit of simplicity,
of easy adjustment to existing conditions
and of uniformity in its effect on all
classes of people. Its adoption would
work no hardship to any one, would re
duce the rate of interest and would make
scarcity of money ini]»ossiblc. The
details of this system may be briefly
1st. Direct ownership aud control of
all banks by the government.
2nd. Three thousand banks to be es
tablished, equiably distributed. Money
be loaned on real estate ami other
3rd. Rate of interest to borrowers, four
per cent. Depositors to be paid three
4tli. Every post office to be a bank ot
The advantages of this system may
also be briefly summarized.
1st. The people would own their own
banks aud thus the privilege of controll
ing the people’s instrument of exchange
would not be granted as a private mo
nopoly, at enormous sacrifice to the
people, and enormous gain to the fortu
The government would guarantee de
positors, which would bring out millions
of hoarded wealth into general circula-
i, that through uncertainty and inse
curity arc now of no use to their owners
to the people. Bank officials, under
governmental control, would lie subject
to a rigid system of accountability that
• other system can obtain.
Bank panics and money stringency
would be nvoided. Hired attorneys of
money monopolists would no longer dis
grace our legislative halls in the effort
to influence legislation calculated to
maintain unequal rates of interest, aud
private money lenders would no longer
be able to exact the last dollar of tribute
from' a debt-ridden and interest-
2nd. The establishment of deposito
ries at various centres of population
vould afford every section equal facili
ties for obtaining money, and would not
give that blessed privilege to the fortu
nate possessors of stocks ami bonds
3rd. The loaning of money at
form rate of interest .would be directly
in the line of “equal rights to all and
ipccial privileges to none,” as the man
who needed a few hundred dollars in his
business could obtain them at the same
rate of interest its the man who borrowed
thousands or millions. Whereas, now
the unfortunate condition of af
fairs, growing more aggravated every
year, of a glut in the money market of
the East where men of wealth can ob
tain what they need at 4 per cent, and
all sections of the country where the in
dustrial population cannot obtain suffic
ient money for the purposes of general
business even by paying a destructive
rate of interest to Eastern money lenders.
The payment to depositors of a uni
form rate of 3 j»er cent, interest, under
protection of a government guarantee
would bring into circulation much of
the gold and silver now lying stagnant
thousands of nooks and corners, and
the profit arising from the money
loaned will be sufficient to operate the
banks, so that the people will lie at no
4th. Every post office as a bank of de
posit would place banking facilities at
every man’s door and the heavy expense
attendant upon the transfer of checks
between banks and of money to banks of
deposit would be saved to the people.
There is as much money in the coun
try during financial panics as at other
times, bnt it is not in circulation. Why ?
Because it is under the direct control, to
a large extent, of the private owners of
national banks, who on account of the
uncertainties of the times, whicli uncer
tainties are largely due, not to the in
dustrial, but to the speculative class,
begin to call in their most undesirable
loans, increase their reserve and exact
more difficult and hazardous require
ments of their industrial patrons.
The Hill banking system would main
tain an equilibrium in financial matters
that would avert such monetary disas
ters and maintain, at all times, the very
highest per capita circulation among the
The radical wing of the Farmers Alli
ance may not be satisfied with this sys
tem, as they will not be satisfied with
anything short of their sub-treasury plan.
The national banker and his cousin, the
capitalist and the speculator in stocks
and bonds will not be pleased with it, as
it affords them less opportunity for un
earned profits, bat for the manufacturers,
merchants, mechanics, farmers and la
