Carlton.was taking an’ unfair advantage of him in canvassing the district? while our congressmen .was attending lo the liusineas entrusted to- hHtearaby tiw people. Everybody knew'such talk to be mere hoob, and that Mr. Basse has tost enough time out of his seat to have made a half doken canvasses of the district. The Madisonian _ made a this “post of duty" argument Its. campaign cry, and even the day that Rees*’ teach ed HartwelJ, was feeding it to ita read ers. .

If we mistake not, when opposing Mr.) Black, llceso took the undue advantage of him of re maining in several counties and working for himself while even on the day of an election, and this ■* doubtless his game now. But he haWh wide-awake man te deal with this time, and lias either to come out and show his face, or boar the odium tb-.t such conduct warrants. As soon as the newa reached Capt. Carlton that Reese hsd sneaked back into the district and was trying a still-hunt, this gallant gentleman lent him the following telegram.

Whew! but didn’t Carlton give' it to “Joe” last Saturday? Watch Saab. Reese spring a letter on the people of Morgan county on the eve of the primary election. The Madisonian, in its wild caperinga te send Seab. Reese, back to congress, ia deliberately sacrificing {he political in terest of Morgan county. Mr. Seaborn Reese, Washington City— Dear Sir: Will you bo ao kind as to pauqo long eqough in yhur official duties to explain te the people of Morgen coun ty why yon did not endorse Mr. Fur- lew’s petition? The people are in no mood for trilling. “Carlton's got grit,” said an old farmer to me Saturday. "l)um my buttons if lie ain't got North Georgia grit from gar ret to cellar!” They do spy that Mr. Iteeso is just be ginning to realise the tremendous mis- take he made in endorsing Blackburn's petition, and that he goes behind hia boarding house every day after dinner and (ticks himself.. If Seab. Reeaa really didn’t have the time to answer the.many letters address ed to Sim by his constituents before the ign began, why is it that he ismw sending personal letters to hia acquaint ances all over this county begging them to support him? The Madisonian is eclipsing every paper in the district in ita efforts to elect Carlton to congress. In speaking of Mr. Studdard,*the rep rcaeutative from this county, the Madi. sonianof Oct 10th, .1884, (eld: “This county lias elected a man (meaning' Ur. Studdard) that cannot, if hieJifo depend ed oq IL draft adyr hijl, let alopo advocate it before the general assembly, however -simple it may be. The next legislature will form a very contemptible opinion of the intelligence of oi\ . people, shbutd they judge Hfir character by the figure head sent to represent them." Now, io order to entico Mr. Studdard into the Reese ranks, the Madisonian of last Fri day throws out te him the following woll-baited hook: “Ur. Studdard ia one of Morgan county’s boat and most popu lar citizens, and is square on every issue that comes up. Ur. Iteeso places high value on the good will of this honest and straightforward gentleman.
