Hon. Jon. M. Brown, Governor-elect,
will spend next Friday (lilth inst.) in
Newnan, and during the day hopes to
have the pleasure of meeting us many
of the Coweta people as possible. He
will arrive from Greenville at 0:40
o’clock Thursday evening and will he
met at the A. &. W. P. depot by a com
mittee of citizens and escorted to the
Virginia llodse, where he will stop
during his stay in the city. From 8:30
toll Thursday evening there will be
an informal reception in the Virginia
House parlors, to which the public is
invited. Ladies are specially included in
'/’;//•; SOUTH NEWNAN SCHOOL.
All indications point now to a satis
factory agreement between the City
Council and the Board of Education as
to the need of better school facilities
in South Newnan, as well as the char
acter of the building necessary and
proper to meet this want. The crowd
ed condition of the Temple avenue
school, and the hampered situation of
the teachers, have seriously interfered
with the school work for more than a
year. Recognizing that an improve
ment in the conditions described was
imperatively demanded, and believing
that the educational interests of the
community would be better subserved
by segregating the school population of
the city, the Board of Education has
for some time been urging upon the
City Council the advisability of erect
ing in South Newnan a school building
large enough to accommodate all chil
dren of school age In that section
up to and including the seventh
grade. This would relieve the conges
ted conditions in the Temple avenue
building, and provide ample school fa
cilities for years to come. The city
lias paid all the bonds issued eighteen
or twenty years ago for the Temple
avenue building, and now has no school
debt at all. Fifteen or eighteen thous
and dollars would be sufficient for the
erection and equipment of a good school
building in South Newnan, and the
need is so urgent and so apparent that
we believe a bond issue for this pur
pose would be approved with hardly a
it should be a cause of general grat-
ulation among our citizens that the
City Council and the Board of Educa

pressing need of additional school facil
ities: and, second, as to the amount re

It remains for those who are invested
with supreme authority and responsi
bility to decide at this critical juncture
whether the logic of the isthmus does
not require the construction of a canal
at sea level.”
A movement is on foot to have Good

the people of this county who are in

meeting at noon on that day in the

hands at this time. If this money were
deposited in the banks, where it would
draw on an average of 3 per cent, a
year, it would mean the addition of
$15,000,000 yearly to the wealth of the
United States. In other words, the
hoarding habit costs the people of this
country $15,000,000 annually.

JOE BROWN’S INAUGURATION.
Concerning the coming inuguration
of Governor-elect Jos. M. Brown, the
Augusta Herald, which paper was a
warm supporter of Hoke Smith, has
the following to say in an editorial:
“Mr. Brown has indicated that he
wishes his inauguration to be simple.
He doesn’t want any pageantry- no
great parade, no show to ape royalty,
such ns is growing more and more to be
the custom in inaugurating Presidents
and Governors. He has given his
friends distinctly to understand that
his induction into office is to be marked
by no fanfare or blare of trumpets, hut
that it U to be a simple ceremonial,
becoming a Democratic form of gov
ernment. In making this announce
ment Mr. Brown is to be commended.
It will be a good beginning for his ad
ministration. It is an indication that
there will be no idle show, no waste of
effort, no hollow sham, but that his ad
ministration is to be business-like and
democratic. Well decided, Mr. Brown.
Stick to it. Throughout your^idminis-
t ration let this be the keynote of your
action, and you will have the people
behind you. Your administration will
be a blessing to the State, and ’Little
Joe’ will be esteemed by the people as
one of the biggest Governors the State
Hall County Officials Indicted.
Gainesville, Ga., Feb.—The Hall
county grand jury this afternoon found
true bibs against W. N. Dyer, former
Ordinary and former chairman of the
Board of Roads and Revenues, and I.
F. Duncan and .Jeff D. Whelchel, for
mer members of the board, for malprac
tice in office.
There are two separate bills of in
dictment. The first true bill returned
was for a misdemeanor, charging the
Commissioners with having let con
tracts for three bridges without adver
tising for bids. The other bill of in
dictment is on seven counts, as follows :
Count number one charges the Com
missioner with having sold a pair of
mules to the county while a member of
the board, which was illegal.
Count two, I. F. Duncan is alleged to
have sold supplies and lumber to the
road gang while it was at work near
The third count is that W. N. Dyer
was given a warrant for $51.35 to re
place a part of the county’s weekly pay
roll, which was stolen from the vault
in his office one Saturday last fall.
The Commissioners, in giving Judge
Dyer this sum. decided that inasmuch
as it was the county’s money that was
stolen he should not personally suffer
the loss of it.
The fourth count is that B. H. Mor
ton, a livery-man, was paid the sum of
$23.33 ior the board of Judge Dyer’s
The fifth count is that the Commis
sioners illegally paid to W. R. Reed
the sum of $4 for services rendered the
board before said Reed was inducted
into office as a County Commissioner.
The sixth count recites that the Com
missioners had no authority to pay a
note of $4,000 to the Good Roads Ma
chinery Co. for road machinery out of
funds borrowed for that purpose before
said note was due.
The seventh count specifies that the
Commissioners spent more money for
roads and bridges than was levied for
The Commissioners claim that they
have acted within tiie bounds of reason ;
that they have not knowingly nor in
tentionally violated anv law, and that
they were actuated solely for the coun
ty’s good in the various transactions of
the hoard. They will likely give bond
for their appearance at the July term
of court to answer the charges against

Mr. John Gorham, an old Troup coun

writes a timely warning to the farmers
of Georgia in a letter to the editor of
the Newnan Herald and Advertiser.
He is hji intelligent and observing man,
well posted as to Texas farming inter
ests, and knows what he is writing
about. He savs that this year the
farmers of Texas will plant tifteen
million acres in cotton, on land
that will make from one-half to three-
fourths of a bale to the acre without
fertilizers. If there are no ravages by
insects, and normal conditions prevail,
Texas will make a record-breaking
yield of cotton this year—possibly half
as much as the entire product of last
We know nothing of Texas condi
tions, but if Mr. Gorham’s predictions
come true, we can readily see that such
a bumper crop of cotton as planned for
that State would so depress the price
of the staple as to knock all possible
profit out of the Georgia crop, if Geor
gia should wholly rely on cotton. Of
course, Georgia is going to continue to
make coiton. and a great deal of it. If
we may judge from the reports we read
in newspapers from the several sections
of the State. Georgia farmers this year
will plant a larger acreage in corn than
ever before, and the improved methods
o; cultivation will insure a bountiful
yield. Mr. Gorham’s letter is a timely
warning, which will serve to more fully
confirm the determination to look well
to home supplies first, and then for a

Bridge at Moore’s Ferry.
Whitesburg, Ga., Feb. 11.—Consider
able interest is being manifested in the
proposed steel bridge across the Chat
tahoochee river near Whitesburg. The
river is the dividing line between the
two counties, Carroll and Coweta. The
people of the two counties are becom
ing greatly concerned in the movement
to build this bridge, and it is expected
that the authorities of each county will
soon take the matter up for considera
tion. The progress of the counties in
the good roads movement, giving safe,
quick and better facilities for traveling
on the public highways, demands
much better and more convenient way
of crossing water-courses like the Chat
tahoochee river. Some sections of
Georgia along this water-course have
strong, well-built steel bridges over
the most popular roads.
The road by Whitesburg, known as
the Newnan and Carrollton road, which
crosses the river at Moore’s ferry, is
one of the main thoroughfares through
this part of the State. It is at Moore’s
ferry, just 2 miles from Whitesburg,
that the proposed steel bridge may be
built. While other parts of the State
adjacent to the river have steel bridges,
there is a distance of 75 miles between
Atlanta and Franklin without a bridge.

Brod was in business in Newnan and

went to a special master, the creditors
claiming that the petitioner had either
secreted or destroyed his books or had
failed to keep an account of the manner
in which his assets were handled. The
