A meeting of the subscribers to the
Htock of the Western of Georgia rail
way—the new railroad projected from
Franklin via Newnan to Aberdeen, on
the A., R. & A. road- was held in the
court-house last night. Reports were
made by the various committees that
have been working to secure this rail
road for Newnan, and the gratifying
announcement was made that the
amount required of Newnan and Cow
eta county had been raised. The an
nouncement was greeted by applause,
and everybody seemed happy over the
successful culmination of a movement
which means so much to Newnan and
On motion, it was decided to call in
the subscriptions to the capital stock,
and 1. N. Orr, sr., T. G. Farmer and
II. C. Arnall, jr., the committee named
in the contract to receive the subscrip
tions, were directed to collect the
money and turn it over to another com
mittee composed of H. T. Thompson,
W. C. Wright and N. E. I’owel. The
last-named committee was likewise
empowered to investigate and pass
upon the solvency of the securities
tendered by McCord & Co., the con
tractors, the latter having agreed to
put up bonds and other solvent securi
ties in an amount equal to the total
money subscriptions of Coweta and
Heard counties, as a pledge for the
faithful performance of their contract.
Roth committees are at work to-day.
The cull for money last night
was immediately responded to by Col.
W. C. Wright and Mr. E. C. Goodwyn,
who came near falling over each other
in their eagerness to be the first to
pay the amount of their subscriptions.
Col. Wright was the quicker, though,
and hastily scribbled his check for $500.
Mr. Goodwyn followed with a check
for $100. And thus the superstitious
objection to beginning the work of col
lecting the subscriptions on Friday
was happily obviated.
lion. I. N. Orr was elected perma
nent chairman of the stockholders’ as
sociation, and Mr. N. E. Rowel was
chosen secretary. Future meetings
will be held as the chairman may order.
Mr. 1. L. McCord, of the contracting
linn of McCord & Co., being in the
city, was brought before the meeting
and asked to make a talk. He said he
had nothing to add to statements made
by him at previous meetings, except
that he had completed all arrangements
in New York to secure the money with
which to build and equip the road, and
was anxious to begin work. If the
subscriptions should be paid this week,
he said, he would put a corps of engi
neers in the field next week to make a
permanent survey and locate the route.
In another week, he added, he would
have teams and laborers engaged in
the work of construction. He conclud
ed by saying that he expected to have
trains running between Newnan and
Franklin in time to move the next cot
ton crop. He hoped there would be
no delay in converting the subscriptions
into cash, and that all necessary details
would be closed up at once, in order
that his company might get to work.
Short talks were made also by Col.
W. C. Wright, Hon. 1. N. Orr, Mr. R.
T. Thompson, Mr. E. C. Goodwyn,
Capt. .1. J. Goodruni, and others. Mr.
Goodwyn remarked that the agitation
for another railroad had had one good
result already i. e., the rate on do
mestic coal to Newnan had been re
duced 55c. per ton, and he anticipated
other substantial benefits from the
building of the road.
Subscriptions are being paid rapidly
to-day, the committee having about all
they can do to handle the money. Let
everybody pay up promptly. The soon
er it is done, the sooner the work of
construction will begin.

The “tacky party” given by Misses
Artie and Lillie Ponder in entertain
ment of the Social Club was pro
nounced a complete success. The in
genuity displayed in the “getting up”
of the various costumes was wonder
ful. In several instances relics of the
past indulgently lent themselves to the
adornment of youth. Mr. Raymond
Sims wore the coat in which his grand
father was married, while Mr. Edwin
Latimer sported a vest that owned up
to one hundred and forty-five years,
woven of cotton that was picked from
the seed by hand. The decorations,
games, refreshments and favors all har
monized with the character and spirit
of the occasion, and furnished fun to
the participants and spectators suffi
cient to ward off the “blues” for a
month to come.
Services at Prospect were conducted
by the pastor, Rev. A. H. S. Rugg,
Saturday, and on Sunday forenoon and
evening. News of improvement in the
health of Mrs. Rugg was gladly re
ceived by their many friends in this
community. Following the prelimina
ry service on Sunday morning, the
large and appreciative congregation
was favored with a most forcible and
eloquent address from Hon. S. E.
Leigh, of Grantville, on the subject of
missions, Mr. Leigh having been ap
pointed at the last district conference
as head of the laymen’s missionary
movement in LaGrange district. The
cause could not have beerr entrusted to
an abler or more zealous advocate.
Among the visitors at this service
were Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Sewell, Miss
Lillian Sewell and Miss Callie Mae
Latimer, of Grantville; Mr. and Mrs.
.1. ('. Harman, of Odessadale; Mr. and
Mrs. Oiven Ponder, of Rocky Mount;

Weakness of the Convict Law.
The new convict law is bound to be
come an unpopular measure. Its weak
nesses are becoming more apparent
It is the most imperfect, incomplete,
chaotic measure passed by the General
Assembly in a score of years.
The small counties will be the princi
pal sufferers from its provisions, and
the rich city counties be benefited try
Taxes are bound to soar skyward, un
til the Constitutional prohibition will
have to be repealed so that a greater
tax-rate can be levied to meet the cur
rent expenses of the State.
It was necessary to license the sale
of the so-called near-beer to maintain
the new system, and the money raised
by this iniquitous sanction Py law of
hundreds of “blind tigers” will not
provide sufficient revenue to maintain
It lias practically been decided that
the white convicts are not to be put on
the roads, which will necessitate an ad
ditional appropriation to provide for
this aggregation of felons.
The Representatives of the State
were hectored by a certain Atlanta
newspaper and driven into the passage
of the present taw, which the whole
State will ultimately condemn.
It is hoped the next Legislature will
not listen to the vaporings of yellow
We were not in favor of continuing
f ir an indefinite period the lease sys
tem, but we believed that the State
should lease them until 1911 and make
preparations within that time for the
final abolishment of the lease system.
As it is, we have got the cart before
the horse. The old system was abol
ished before preparations wove made
for the change.
