Ain’t It a Shame ?
And now that man Brown, the pres
ent Governor of Georgia, has done an
other euriouH thing. In fact, he threat
ens to berome more or less famous
throughout the Union for doing odd,
not to say eccentric, things.
He has declined to pardon an embez
zler—and over the recommendation of
the Pardon Board, moreover—in spite
of the fact that the man wants to be
turned loose, is willing to promise to
be good in the future, has a host of
“influential” political and social hack
ers, and is not thought to be in very
good health, anyway.
What is the Governor thinking about?
Did he moan it when he said that there
should not he in Georgia one law for
the rich and another for the poor, one
for the classes and another for the
masses, when he declined to commute
the sentence of that Mitchell party a
few days ago? Mitchell is a white man
of “immaculate” past and high connec
tions. But he was convicted of kidnap
ping and attempting criminal assault
upon the person of a well-known young
woman of the State, nevertheless and
Says this peculiar Governor in con
sidering the embezzler’s ple.i for clem
“The applicant in this case has
served a less time than that which the
law lixes as the maximum upon which
a parole can be granted. A lull pardon
to him now, therefore, would possibly
set the seal of the State upon a temp
tation working wreck to fortune, repu
tations and happiness. It might do
worse. It might be construed as indi
cating that the executive power is set
ting itself in opposition to, and, in fact,
overruling, the courts; in other words,
making itself practically the court of
last resort. We should not even admit
this thought. Our organic law irrevo
cably commands the contrary. Re
sped for the law and the consequent
determination to uphold and obey it, is
inculcated by the certainty of its en
forcement, and even mercy must be so
discerningly extended as to suggest
the constant presence of justice. This
should be our unchanging practice.”
Far be it from us to throw cold wa-
er on the Governor’s promulagtion;
but enn it be possible that he means
just that? Has he no overshadowing
desire to be re-elected, or to go to the
United Stnles Sen tu? Docs he actual
ly mean that he considers hiH pardon
ing power a solemn trust, given him
to be exercised purely in the cause of
impartial and impersonal justice arid
right, and not a thing to be UHed for
political or personal ends? As impossi
ble as the suggestion may seem, we
positively believe Governor Brown
means just exactly that I
It is all somewhat startling, to be
sure and most engagingly refreshing
and encouraging, we suspect, in the
minds of not a few people.
Dread of Darkness a Natural Feeling.
There is a natural fear in the dark

to his home late at night sees the fig

for no good purpose, and consequently
must feel timidity before entering into

its proper functions, is it not better

wastefully used; but not, even now, so

apt to be far more conspicuous than
the fruitful use. Besides the very large

this use of superfluous money by indi
viduals as fairly to give ground for the
suspicion that the limitations of the
profitable use of money for personal
of trading is done, we again call the at
tention of the people ot the necessity
of trading at home.
Our people are interested in the
growth of their city, and are willing to
do what they can to make it prosperous.
Well, the first and most important
thing to be done is for the people to do
all their trading at home.
For, say what you may, the city that
does not possess a people who do their
trading at home cannot reach the high
est degree of prosperity. There is
something wrong in that city whose
people are all the while sending to other
places to make their purchases.
Our merchants have brought out as
elegant stocks of goods as are to be found
anywhere. They are prepared to sell
these goods at as low prices as obtain
advantage are being better apprecia- j elsewhere. They carry as great a va
riety as the merchants of any other
city. There is, therefore, no reason
for the purchasing of goods away from
These remarks apply 11 the women

Excessive fortunes seem as apt to
blight life as to expand it; and when
they do blight it—breeding selfishness
and laziness, narrowing association, re
laxing fidelity, and paralzving effort—
they bring, not envy, but contempt on
their possessors. To see the rising
generation of male heirs of a great
fortune is to the ordinary looker-on as
disenchanting a spectacle as tenement-
house congestion. When superabundant
money works such disaster as that, is
it any affectation to say it is dreaded
to say that it is despised? Now, we
can endure to he despised in good

that we are justly contemptible, or in

"The late Ira D. Sankey,” said a
veteran Pittsburg editor, “once dined

search of a lawyer to represent him
would be just as much justified in pass

one in Atlanta or some other city. And
this illustration might be applied to
every profession and occupation.
Every dollar spent at home becomes
a part of the circulating medium, goes
toward the paying of debts and comes
back in the due course of time to the
man who first paid it out. Not so with
the dollars sent away. They do not
pay debts at home, they do not go into
the circulating medium of the city, and
they do not come back to the man who
first pays them out.

not believe this practice is to continue

Gov. Brown’s Appointments.
Americus Times Recorder.
Gov. Brown has been criticized in
some quarters for having appointed a
few Smith men to office. It appears
that up to date he has made thirty-four
appointments, twenty-nine of the num
ber being supporters of himself and five
being Smith men. The Governor is
quoted as saying in explanation of his
course: “I regard the offices as being
not my private property, nor my busi
ness asset, but as belonging to the peo
ple of Georgia. Hence, I consider it
my duty to safeguard their interest;
not to attempt to use the power of con
ferring the offices for the purpose of
advancing any aims personal to me.”
Commenting on the matter ths Macon
Evening News, an extreme partisan of
Mr. Smith in the last campaign, sees
much in Gov. Brown’s course to com
mend, and with good judgement and
much reason says: “We regard Gov.
Brown’s conduct as admirable. The
large proportion of the appointments
made from the nnmber of his political
friends abundantly manifests his fidelity
to his faction, while the few exceptions
were doubtless influenced by considera
tions superior to partisan interests, and
it is refreshing to know that Gov. Brown
proved equal to the demands of patriot
