REPRESENTATIVE MEETING OF THE
Eloquent Speeches l>y Albert Cox, Judge
Tompkins and Other*—Tlie Ordi
nary’s Arrangement* for the
Election Completed. *
Making All the Necessary Arrangement* for
Atlanta, November 23.—Judge Calhoun,
Ihe ordinary, called together this morning
the managers and clerks for the election
and explained to them tho lav regulating
the same. There were present Judge Henry
It. Tompklnfi and Col. S. 1'. 'Westmoreland,
chairmen respectively of the anti-prohibi
tion and prohibition general committees,
Jndge Tanner and Messrs. Fleish and Mar
tini managers of the Month Atlanta
precinct, nnd Jndge Landrum nud Messrs,
oick Spaulding nnd Jerry Goldsmith, mana
gers of tho North-Atlanta precinct, were all
on hand. In addition to this thirty-six
clerks were present, half of them are nnti,
half prohi. This army of clerks will be
divided among the two city precincts.
There aro three ballot boxes at each pre
cinct nnd there will be nix clerks at each
box—three of a kind. All this, it would
seem, will tend to insnro a fair election.
Jndge Calhonn offered some suggestions.
The print* 1 tickets most bear the words
“F.or the Sale" nnd “Against the
Sale." Duplicate lists of the voters
m%t be kept at each ballot-
box, and after the election one list must be
sent to the clerk of the Superior Coart for
tiling, the other to the ordinary, who will
settle nil contests, if any.
The lists and ballot boxes must be kept
separate, the lists at each box correspond
ing io the ballots in tho samo.
i Judge Calhoun rood the statute governing
elections for members of the General As
sembly nnd stated the coming election
mnst be regulated thereby. The minor dc-
tails of, conducting the election was left to

Atlanta, November 18.—The prohibi
tionists have ignominionsly backed down
from that proposed joint discussion be
tween Messrs. Clayton and Haydn nnd
Messrs. Hawthorne and ltichardson. The
members of tho prohibition executive com
mittee, who was so nnxioas for the de
bate, and who guaranteed the
use of the tent, nnd
who also promised without doubt that the
dienssion should be had, now Bays bis ex
cuse is that tho tent is engaged for overy
night this week, and that the prcUbition-
ists need all the tirno they have to get in
their beat licks for themselves.
The idea of tho joint diaenssion had
awakened this town to the highest pitch of
excited interest, and tho backing-down of
tho other side is n humiliating
confession of the want of ability in
Dr. Uawlhorno to meet Mr. Clayton, who in
tho most 'incisive ami, at tho same time,
wittiest debater in Atlanta. To the honor
of Sir. Richardson, be it said, he was willing
to go into the debate, even at the peril that
It is confessed by prohibitionists, and
claimed by antis, that the running of the
prohibitionists from the face of Messrs.
Clayton and Hayden, is a retreat witbont
glory, nnd one that will cost the prohibi
tionists many votes.
AN ANTI-PROHIBITION MEETING.
An Itnmenso Croud of tho Itest People
Atlanta, November 19.—Tlie meeting of
the anti-prohibitionists in the basement of
court bonse to-night was one of the largest
and most cnthnsinslic meetings ever held
in this city. It was a representative meet
ing of the business men, the property
holders, the working mrn and of the best
in each class. There was not a woman or a
child ill the crowd, but voters, voters,
voters, and nothing lint voters. Every seat
was token, the aisles were peeked, tho doors
were choked and hundreds were turned
away. The executive committee of the
antis sat on the platform. Jndge Henry
B. Tompkins, the chairman, called the
meeting to brder in a few well-timed re
marks. The other side, he said,
have missed the real issue in this
campaign. It was not simply dosing the
liar-rooms, as they held. The, reel issue wss
for tho sole of liquoror against it. This in-
clndes the wholesale interest, the brewing
interest, nnd all the active business inter
ests of Atlanta nre involved. The prohibi
tionists are the intemperate party, not tbe
antis, who have been conservative
ill their conduct of the campaign.
They have appealed, not to paaaion,
hut to reason and common sense. He an
alysed the bill. It was an oatngeona one,

There were too many nntis in the crowj.
Ho would talk to the prohibitioniats. Onr
aide hod been conservative and fair. The
other aide have assailed ns with nothing
but abuse. We had been charged with fav-
orig vice, immorality mid deviltry. The
respectability and brains of Hub audience
was a complete answer. The whisky busi
ness was hot a bod business. It was a legal
ized traffic, and the men engaged in it
hail a right to be protected in their rights.
Il was surprising, tho sadden love of the
prohibitionists tor tho negro. They pre
tended to have a pious, holy regard for him
now, but when the election is over they
will meet in their churches nnd gather pen-
niea to send to Africa nud China, and leave
the negro just ns ragged os before. They
claimed to represent tbe God and morality
side, and said the devil represented our side.
He had fallen into very respectable com
pany, then, and it would ao him good.
[Applause. [ They claim to have a mo
nopoly of the prayers, but we havo
the voters. A man dreamed he went
to hell. He saw a big gang of
prohibitionists and n few antis. The pro
hibitionists were holding the negro between
themselves and the tire. [Continued
cheers.] They would try to hold the negro
to their bosom on election day, but he would
get away and vote the other ticket. [Laugh
ter and applause.]
Chief Justice Towney has decided that it
was ‘‘impossible to prevent the importation
the of liquor. Tbe government gives the right
to make nnd sell it, nnd yon can
not violate the right. He wonld

jurist against the opinions of Atlanta law
yers on tho prohibition side.
Mr. Haydn's speech completely captured
Ex-Mayor J. B. Goodwin was called and
made a few sensible remarks. Prohibition
is impracticable in Atlanta. No city of
equal population is this country has fewer
drunkards. The 1 ill is unjust, fanatical, and
will be defeated. It struck at vested rights.
Why should snch a sacrifice be made to
save a few sots, Charley Beermnn, the pub
lic spirited lessee of tho Kimball Honso,
was worth more to Atlanta tlmn all the
drunkards in it, and yet it was songht to
rain him to save them.und at lost yon cannot
save them. Tho only onswer that the other
side hnd ever deigned to give to Julius
Brown's strong arguments was another

bition down md then let us all pnll together

Then the great crowd dispersed.
A CHANCE FOR TROUBLE ON ELEC
Atlanta, November 20.—'Tho prohibi
tionists propose to mitko things very lively
for the voters on election day. They have
a special committee at work at the court-
house to-day, diligently engaged in compar
ing tho printed list of voters with the tax
books of the connty. They havo announced
their intention of challenging ell voters
who have not paid their taxes.
They ore preparing to go
into tho wholesale challenging busi
ness. Of courso that will tend to dcluy the
polling of votes nnd make people mod. It
is also given ont that they intend to indict
all persons whose names aro cheeked off as
not having paid their taxes. This sort of
business may be all very well, but from the
intense expressions against it on the street,
it is clear thnt if persisted in there will bo
serious tronble on election day. There aro
scores of voters whose names do not appear
upon tho tax books, and yet who
have paid their taxes. If snch
names shall be checked off liy
this committee and the voters interfered
with st the, polls somebody will probably
get hurt, Tlie wisest plan wonld seem to
be to let *11 vote whose name* appear up-
on the registration books, and after the
election, throw out the illegal ballots, if any
should be proven beyond a reasonable donbt
to be so.
Atlanta, November 20.—The most gigan
tic frond ever attempted was basely perpe
trated upon seven thousand people to-night
in.the prohibition tent Col. T. P. West
moreland, when the meeting was ready for
business, stepped up on the rostrum and
said that one Saturday night while an in

mother sent her young daughter to the bar
room for the father, where the child plead
ed for her father to come home. That in
cident bail keen set to mnsie. The leader
of the prohibition choir, knowing of the
music anil song, secured it, and she hnd
found a poor waif, a beggar girl on the
streets of Atlnhta, who wonld sing tho song
entitled, “Father, dear father, come home
permit liquor to be sold to minors, because
it is ruinous to mind and body, und yet law
permits this enrse to stand in tbe pathway
of every yonng man in the State.
Every law in Georgia regulating the liquor
traffic is a confession before God and man
that the traffic is a crime. I do not change
our fathers with wrong. They acted up to
their light and wisdom, but if they can look
down on us they will thank God that their
sons have advanced beyond the beaten way
of them, onr fathers. I am not a fannatic
on tbe ' question. I have many personal
friends in.the liquor traffic, many of them.
God knows my heart, I would nse at any
hour of the night to accommodate them.
This hill has nothing to say against the
dram drinker nnd those who drink at home
behind the door, but it comes with all its
force nnd power against the dram seller.
While the Doctor was speaking, n pro
cession of 500 negroes entered the tent und
for nwliilo there was such enthusiasm that
speaking was postponed live minutes. The
negroes wero preceded by a one-eyed white
negro named Fletcher, who has been an uc-
tivc temperance orator.
Dr. Felton concluded his speech by sny-
iug the demonstration there to-night settled
the fight in favor of prohibition,
virtue nnd freedom of wivea
and daughters. The Doctor made
a conservative harangue, such as a prospec
tive temperance gubernatorial candidate
Rev. Quigg, of Conyers, and Rev. Carter,
colored, followed Dr. Felton in short talks.
Dr. Hawthorne urged the crowd to give
three cheers for prohibition, which was
led by him waving his hat frantically.
Then he asked for three groans for some

with me now." The girl was ltd to the front.
Her pitiable appearance moved the vest
andicnce. A murmur of sympathy went
through tbe crowd. She bod on a torn,
dark calico dress nnd a sleeveless brown
tlanneljnckct; her head was tied np in u
dirty striped ragged shoulder shawl; on her
right foot was a worn, low-button slipper,
held on by a wliito rag string tied under the
hollow of the foot and over the instep; on
her left foot was u high, much worn lace
shoe, and red rag strings were conspiceons
os garters. Altogether a more dejected spec
imen of the Arab class could scarcely be
found. Miss Etfie Stiff, the leader of the
choir uud organist, played the accompani
ment while tho breathless crowd listened
in eagerness to tbesweeb sed voice plead'
ing in dulcet tones “Father, dear
father come home with me now." Never
was mure sympathy shown, und when the
aong was over a generous man called ont:
“Take up a collection for lier." The ls-g-
S r child retired amidst plaudits that would
ttera queen. Now, while the child
singing, Mr. Stiff, who sings bass with the
choir, and a brother to Miss Etfie Stiff,
leaned over to me and said: “That in good.
I know, and can get yon her name if you
won't U-1L” “Who is she?” I asked. “A
child of one of the most fashionable
families in Atlanta.” “Is she poor?'
“Why, no; she is a music pupil of luy sis

acquaintance of mine, and as he volunteer

compunction of any violation of

Atlanta, November 21.—'The excitement
of Atlanta to-day was the r})tone in the

Dear Father, Come Home With Me Now,”
while the girl was introduced bv Col T. P.
Westmoreland as a poor street beggar girl,
when sbe la one of the daughters of a well-
to-do family. Every one in Atlanta seemed
to know of the deception abont an hour
after the paper arrived. The Constitution,
as usual on goofl items, hail nothing of it,
while it ran nearly a column history of a
fallen women for the prurient of ita readers.'
MTnle Col. Westmoreland declined to be
interviewed, there are those who believe he
wss deceived abont the beggar girl; but un

The local reporter of the Constitution,

of the unexpected .tactics of the probibi-

city at once; and as the item is not copy
righted the Constitution may have some
reference to it to-morrow.
Two things are certain, that a fraud,
gross, unwarrantable frand, was perpe
trated; and that the TxLxusAru was tbe

Washington, November 23.—If the
Honso of representatives enters in earnest
upon tbe revision of the ruler, as it is ex
pected to do, at tho beginning of the com
ing session, the subject of tho code of joint
rules for the government of transactions
between the two houses of Congress is
likely to be an element of discussion. The
Senate, by a vote of 50 to 2, declared sev
eral years ago that there were no joint rules
in effect and formally net! fled the Honse of
the action, notwithstanding which, how
ever, the House, under an old ruling of its
old Sjieuker, has held to tbe theory that the
code of joint rules wonld remain in force
until abrogated by the action of the two
houses. since that time matters
between the two Houses hnve
been by tacit con carrence of both
arranged in accordance with tra
ditional uange or by specific agreement to
meet special necessities. The necessity for
a code of joint rules hoe, in the oplnian of
Senators, become graver with each succeed
ing session. Two yenrs sgo, after re
