Moreover, it is in him owiri£°unty, Decatur being'only three milebfrom his tesidence.''

CAMPAIGN NOTES. 1 It looks to the man up.a Dec like old Joe Brown is going'o try and buy the Democratic voters of- Genrgia. When.does the count) ol D* K lb vote? Xloe* it not act by am** meeting. How is this? Will the Constitution answer. We were under the impression that £>ord»n wanted primaries. We bear De- Kalb county it doubtful. ’ J. Will Oconee county be dictated j to by Pst Calhoun, who is sent out r by the Atlanta ring? Pat Calhoun may be bought to travel for the ring, but the voters of Oconee can’t be bought to vote for the ring candidate. John C. Calhoun would turn over in his grave,, could he but see hit descendant Pat, traveling through mud, tlutb, and rain for a political ring. Patrick Clhoun ia certainly mis- tken in hi* agame if be thinks be aan gull the voters of Oconee county. Democrats of Oconee! Will you be led by a man hired and sent out to control your votes. The democracy of Oconee will everlastingly set down on the trav eling agent of the Atlanta ring to. day. What right has Pat Calhoun, of Atlanta, in Oconee county instruct ing the honest voters. . H.

Alphabet Miller should not touch green apples—they are dangerous. It is an undeniable fact that Gor don has the support of all the rad • ical renegades. We have received encouraging newa from Jackson county. The Gordon men are conduct ing the mast corrupt campaign ever known in the annals of. the demo cratic pai ty iii this State. Compare the Bacon and Gordon methods of this campaign. Which are the purest? -Weadvise Gordon to be careful or he Will get killed in a tail load accident yet. Let the pliant little county of Oconee stick to A. O. Bacon to day. Major Bacon addressed a large audience at Hamilton Tuesday. General Gordon admitted his failure a* a'saw miller in Colum bus. It was a good place fo* «uuh 1..1 r -t m wr gt citizens of thstplsce paid near a hundred thousand dollars for this failure.
