AT THE OLD BKADLEY-BANKS COMPANY CORNER.
For twenty-six years I have been selling Groceries,
Fresh Fish and Oysters to the people of Newnan and vicinity.
My business has grown from a few hundred dollars a month
to where it amounts now to thousands of dollars a month.
While I may be reported by some as being a “back num
ber,” I wish to inform the public that I am “still on deck
when the bell rings,” both morning and night, doing business
at the same old stand where I began twenty-two years ago.
My motto is to treat every man as I would have him treat
me. This is the Golden Rule which will bring the success it
deserves. So if you want a “square deal” when buying your
Groceries, call phone 54, give Swint the order, and you will
be satisfied with the rest.

The Law’s Delay.
It is not the fault of the lawyers. So
long as there are lawyers, and they are
employed to defend those charged with
criminal offenses, they are going to use
every device possible in behalf of their
clients. Nothing else could be expect
ed ; it is their duty to use their best
efforts in behalf of those who employ
them. The fault lies with the admin
istration of the laws. Those now in
force are the result of many years’
study and experience, and they are
bound by forms and technicalities
which experience has taught are neces
sary for their proper administration.
The trouble that arises is with the
Judges who administer the laws, at
least to a large extent. It is their
duty properlv to enforce the laws, and
pay no attention to the presentation of
frivolous technicalities which tend to
defeat justice. The Judges know, or
should know, how far to permit tech
nical objections to go. and when it is
necessary in the interest of justice to
put the curb on.
The trouble is. a great many of them
lack the nerve or the proper sense of
discrimination to handle such matters.
It is with the appellate courts that lies
the correction of abuses, in the tech
nical administration of the laws. If
they would stop upholding the enforce
ment ot frivolous technical points, and
see to it that they are applied in a sane
and reasonable manner, complaints j
about miscarriage of justice would soon |
cease. While technicalities are bound j
to exist, and the administration of the
laws is bound to proceed within the
limits of certain prescribed forms, it
is not necessary to permit criminal
lawyers to abuse the privilege, and use
the forms and technicalities which are
intended to steer the administration of
the laws within their prescribed course
for the purpose of defeating justice.
Let our Judges attend to the criminal
practitioners, and hold them within
proper limits, and complaints of failure
to properly punish law-breakers will
It is not the laws or legal procedure
that are at fault; it is permitting too
much latitude in their administration
that causes the trouble.
