SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1892.
The Central Railroad ia in the throe*
of a legal warfare. In the hearing of the
application for permanent receivership
last Monday, an adjournment wai
ordered till March 24th, in order to al
low the defence an opportanity to con
sider the bill filed by Maj. A. O. Bacon
in the interest of himself and Francis It.
Haseltine of Boston, minority stock-
bulder*. 'Hie probabilities are that
Messrs. Rountree and Erwin will pool
their interest* with Maj. Bacon, and the
fight will be a bitter one.
There can be little doubt in the mind*
of disinterested persona that the lease of
the Central Railroad to the Georgia Pa
cific, which placed it under control of
the Richmond Terminal ia a gigantic ef
fort to crush the smaller stock-holders,
aud it is to be hoped that this splendid
Central property will be effectually cut
louse from the eutanglemeut* of the uu
holy alliance that is now making it tin
foot-ball of ^courts and monopolist!!
The f*ear growers iu the vicinity o
Thomaaville effected a temporary organ
ization on last Saturday, and adjourned
till Mareh 26, at 10 a. m., when a |*cr-
rnanent organization will be effected that
ia designed to take in all South Georgia.
Our |tear growers should enlist in this
movement which has fur it* object the

Now it is Hill who i* ‘Swinging
around the circle." His speeches have
the true Democratic ring; he denounce*
force kills, McKinley tariffs, Speaker
Reed, the Sherman silver bill, together
with the various other iniquities of the
Republican party in no uncertain lan
guage. He saitl: “It is the Democratic
principles which have created the Dem
ocratic party. In its union lie* greater
strength than all it* enemies com,biued
can ever finally subvert."
Hill’s silence on the silver issue is j

However much Grover Cleveland may
be admired as a wise,* courageous atates-
no longer regarded aa a Pres
idential possibility. The question seems
to be whether it will bs best to nominate
Mr. Hill, or go outside of New York for
a candidate. Senator Gorman, though
from Maryland, is concededly strong in
New York and the East, is a great favor
ite with the South, and he and Horace
Boies, the popular Western Governor,
would make a strong ticket.
The indications are that Governor
Northen will be renominated by the
Democracy without a contest, and that
he will hare no opposition at the election

Judge Atkinson, C’apt. Turner, and
Judge Robert*, are as yet, the only
avowed candidates for the Democratic
Congressional nomination from the
Eleventh District, Col. Sweat, notwith
standing the many strong expressions in
his favor, feeling disinclined to become
a candidate. At the same time we are
quite sure he would obey any authorita
tive call made upon him by the party.
Judge Jonathan L. Morgan, of Clineli,
the father of our Abe, and of Mrs. Dr
Frank C. FVJlSf of our city, is being dis

Fifth District, it being Clinch coanty’i

re-elected at the end of their present
terms, without opposition.
The attitude of a number of our Deui-
ocratic contemporaries towards the Farm

influence is at all considerable, in bring

Even though these editors do not like

straight-out Democracy,have they uo call
to cousider that the farmers of the South
are also Democrats? That us a class the

all Democrats concede have some meas

THE HILL BANQUET IN SAVAN
The banquet of the Hibernian Society
on Thursday night,in Savannah, was the
gathering together of a galaxy of orators
probably never surpassed in the history
of Georgia, and seldom equaled any
where or in any time. Considering the
unprecedented demand for seats, the
Herald representative was fortunate in
securing a place on the outskirts of the
nbly who were permitted a receptive
participation in the “feast of reason and
the flow of soul,” though denied a part
in the feast of material viands and the
flow of wine.
Senator Hill was the honored guest
Hon. P. W. Meldrin wa* the President
and Toastmaster, whose introductions of
the various speakers were eloquent,
though luminously flattering.
The occasion was non-political, bnt
the remarks of several speakers indica
ted, with a distinctness that must have
given satisfaction and assurance to Sen
ator Hill, that their Presidential prefer
ence lay with the guest of the evening.
Every speech was in itself a glow of ora
tions, from the sun of which shone out,
with sparkling brilliancy, the rare dia
monds of eloquence from the lips of four
of Georgia’s sons—Mercer, Hartridge,
Adams and Graves. The closing perora
tion of the latter leading all in the soft
cadence and thrilling word picture of
his closing tribute to woman.
The occasion was one that will long
rest in the memqry of those whose good
fortune it was to be present.
