The democratic party of Clarke county is requested to meet at the opera house in Athens on Satur- •day June afith. at II o’clock, for the purpose of selecting delegates to the congressional convention. G. H. Ya.vcry, Chairman Con. Com'mittee. WHAT 18 A RESIGNATION. To resign ah office is to give it p and surrender it to the (tower from whom it was derived. W hen Gen. Gordon left the senate he cimmunicated his intention to Mr. H. W. Grady some flays in ad vance. it was done in some kind • of a written instrument. Mr. Gn dy to statec) at the tim e to a gentle-’ man of this place. He proceeded . wjth this document from Washing ton to Atlanta, and then a delay ol a week, or near that time, took place befor the resignation was act ually presented to the Governor and a successor appointed. The ap- ponent of the successor followed instantaneously upon the presenta tion of the resignation to the Gov ernor. But the Governor had been put upon notice at the time Mr. Giady reached Atlanta that the resignation was coming. Mr. Gra dy stated, when on his way from Washington to Atlanta, that Gov. Brown would be the successor. Now, in that interval between the arrival of Mr. Grady in Atlanta and the presentation of the resignation to the Governor, what were the Governor and Mr. Grady doing about it? Where was Gov. Brown? Did Mr. Grady go and see him? Was he telegraphed to? Was the proposition made to him to resign the presidency of the State road and let Gen. Gordon have it? Did he refuse? Was the delay occasioned by bis refusal? Did it not become necessary to provide some other • place lor Gen. Gordon? ^fr. Grady said he was going, to be appointed president 3T the SAW tVlljPW when Tie -got no Governor Brown he found ' ••Old Joe Uotftij uk at the bare suggestion of hit giving up the presidency of the State road to Gen. Gordon. It 'will thus be seen that there were aeveral daya of delay, during which the aucces- cion in , the aenate waa be ing cecretiy arranged. The peo ple of Georgia in blissful, innocent ignorance going along attending to their buaineas and Gen. Gordon holding back his resignation, after notifying the governor, ao that ae- cret negotiationa at to the succea- aion should be completed. We deny'thnt this was treating the peo ple fairly. We charge distinctly and expressly that Gen. Gordon was guilty of a breach of tha high' trust confided to him when he be came a party to this delay for the purpose for which it was used. He was elected a senator by the general assembly. When he notified the governor through Mr. Grady that hia resignation waa ready, he ought at tha same time to h*ye made it public. He had no right to deal in that way with hia office, nor to treat the people in any auch manner. If he had made up his mind to resign, be ought to have made it public. He gave an unfair advantage to the- .two or three men whom ,he did. in form. He gave them an opportu nityVf is personally and pecuniarily If he waa a judge, be could and would get-cnother judge, or a judge pro hoc vice, but in the case of the governor there is no substitu tion. The governor, ami the gov ernor alone, under .' h % law, mur.t act. It is too plain for argument. If Gen. Gordon is elected governor it releases that company on whose bond he is a surety'from all liability or responsibility to' the state. You Will have a governor who is dis- q talilird to act in that case, and there la no one to take his place That company can do as they please wbile he is governor. They may turn loose all their convict,; or kill them all, aud until the legislature can. pass some law to meet the cate the state will be refnediless.^ It will do no good to say he can come ofT that bond. Who is going td let him off? Where is the law Suppose there is, thatrtloes not .re lieve him from liability for their up to the time he come, conduct But this is not all. Under the ac{.of-lS7<vif * lease it vacated the governot makes a new lease ac cording mn Vet of 1874. Gen, Gordon is ^ot in a position to do justice to the sMfe or the people or the convicts. He is the bondsman of one company; he has convicts under his own control, and has been concerned directly end pecu niarily in this business of leasing convicts in these various ways. 'Wilt he say that he Is the propet man to make a new lease for the State road with hit partners and his principals in the butinesa com<> petingaa they probably would? WOULD YOU* have no coufldepde whatever ip Gen: Gohlon’s capacity u> manage of the State "rorfrtrbut tmd'know that his whole It you wanted a business partner, would you select Gen.. Gordon? If you wanted a president for u bank in which your money is invested, is not he the last man that you would choose? If you wanted a manager fora factory, or any other institu tion where busines tact is required, would you engage the Atlanta can didate for governor? You would not, for the simple reason that you nity of controlling the successioi and to control it by providing ad office for Gen, Gordon which paid conspicuous in this respect, and him mord-ptoney than that of sena tor. \ THE BONDSMAN 0?THE CONVICT LESSJU5H* Gen. Gordon is'one of the sure ties on the bond of the lessees of the convicts; he it also a'candidate for governor. The act'of 1S74 gives the governor the £>swer to annul and cancel the contract with the lessees upon their failure to com ply with it. It will be his duty . to' do so if the failure is brought to his official notice. The act of 1876 xpre.sly re-enacts that part of the act ot 1S74 as to vacating leases or contracts by the governor. Now, then, here is the case presented: A tnan :■ seeking au office, one of.the life hat been one succession of fail ures. And yet" you are willing to elect him to manage the intricate business of our state government, and in which every man, woman and child in Georgia hat a personal interest. Is there any reason or justice in this? If Gen. Gordon can not even successfully manage 1 Sheepyanch, what will be do with the multitudinous and complicated business of our state? This is • rious question that voters should ■sk. themselves. While not pogpiog the integrity , and honesty of GeH. Gordon, we dp charge that he is uttferiy unfit and -incompetent to guide tblljelMof aW«l|nd refer thingthat he bat undertaken to man age in confirmation of the charge. Wc appeal to the peo ple of GcorgiaSnotacWtwttiy man at the head _ofour J»Utegovern ment that cannot manage^ia own affairs. ” •’ !?0-| We confidently expect Oconee!’, to-day to select a Bacon delegation, although Gen. Gordon has a strong backing in Messrs. Booth & Ash ford, a mercantile firm that has al ways exerted a strong influence in ; the politics of the county. Oconee ; has heretofore been an anti-Bacoo | county, and hence if the People’s j Candidate captures it, it will he a j clear gain to him—if it is will; not he a great disappointment. We| - are convinced, however; that the ' yeomanry ot Oconee -are over- ; whelmingly for Bacon, ami if" they will only attend the meeting there is no possible chance for defeat. I Here is the pfily danger. Crops are , badly in (he grass, and it is hard to j' gets farmer from hit plow. The' concentrated 1 fire of .the Atlanta ring is now directed toOcpnee, and we believe that thia impertinent in terference with their private affairs will ao inflame the indignation of the people as to make them resent the insult to their intelligence.
