with the State Agricultural Society was
unanimously ratified. This contract pro

Mr. Carling suggested that tho con
tract gavo too much authority to one con

Stato Agricultural -Society, they holding
stock In the local association, and he also
said that the fifteen hundred dollars given
that organization waa rather more a bo-
Mr. J. J. Conner, president of tho
Stato Agricultural Society, reviewed the
holding of fairs in Georgia under the
auspices of the organization which ho
represented, and told in what manner
they had been conducted. He stated
that all tho money received by the Stato
oxpenses of tho members who actively
worked for tho fair.
Secretary Martin V. Calvin spoke along
the samo line. Ho replied to Mr. Carling
by saying that none of the money re
ceived by the State Agricultural Society
came as a bonus, that one thousand dol
lars wero required to detray tho travel
ing oxpenses of President Connor and
compensate him for wor* done In secur
ing county exhibits, and that the remain
der was necessary for the payment of tho
expenses of the other members.
It was pointed out during tho meeting
that heretofore the State Agricultural
8ocIety has always received a bonus, but
that, under tho provisions of tho present
contract, only the actual expense money
was asked. It was recalled that three
or four years ago the Macon association
gavo a bonus of four thousand dollars,
and that the year following Atlanta gav
a bonus of six thousand.
Mr. C. R. Pendleton made an earnest
appeal for the ratification of the contract
with Its entailed provision for the con<
tlnuance of state fairs In Macon for l
period of ten years. He said that If tho
contract was illegal In any respect, or
was technically Inaccurate, that such bo
amended at once, but that the Macon
Stato Fblr Association should by all
means fulfill its obligations. Ho occupied
tho floor for some time, and his earnest
talk had much to do with the ultimate
decision to hold the fair In Macon next
year and other years. Mr. Pendleton
moved that the fair be held next
under this contract, with the provision
that if Illegal. In any way it shoulij be
mado legal, and the resolution was car-
