BARK O T T,
A VENERABLE SERVANT OF
Rev. W. J. (’otter, our venerable and
beloved townsman, who is attending
the North Georgia Conference in At
lanta this week, seems to be attracting
more atention than any other member
of that distinguished body. We are not
surprised. He is one of the best men
on earth, loved and esteemed by every
man, woman and child who knows him.
Noting his presence at conference,
the Atlanta Journal says—
An interesting figure among several
of particular interest at the North
Georgia Conference, is Rev. W. J.
Cotter, of Newnan, a superannu
ated minister. “Yesterday 1 was 86
years old,” he said “Sixty-five years
ago yesterday 1 was licensed and rec
ommended to the church conference.
For 53 years 1 served in the regular
work. My cup of joy ought to be fuller
than any man’s on this floor. I have
never reproached myslf for asking for
the superannuated relation, for the
reason that I did not want to stand in
the way of men who were more active
than myself.” He recalled some of the
earlier pastors, nearly all of whom are
dead “1 feel desolate and lonely,” he
said, his white beard shaking with
emotion. Later: “1 have been in the
hands of more presiding elders proba
bly than any other man in this body.
In one charge where I served four years
1 had four presiding elders.” Bishop
Hendrix: “Did it take four to make
one in those days?” "Oh, no, sir, “was
Rev. Cotter’s vigorous denial. “Every
one of them was up to the full measure
of a man, and running over.”
The Atlanta Constitution of to-day
also has the following reference to the
Rev. W. J. Cotter, of Newnan. is a
central figure at the North Georgia Con
ference, in session at St. Haul’s church,
as he is at each conference annually.
He is the oldest member of the confer
ence, both in age and in the number of
years spent in the service of the Lord,
lie brought tears to more than one pair of
eyes as he stood at the beginning of the
session and made a brief talk, in this
talk he stated that he celebrated his 86th
birthday on Tuesday, Nov. 16, and at
the same time celebrated the sixty-fifth
anniversary of his ordination as a mem
ber of the Methodist church. Forsixty-
(ive years he has been a servant in the
army of the Lord, and the present is
the sixty-fourth annual conference he
has attended. Although he is fourscore
and almost ten, (nearly a score more
t han the allotment to man promised by
the Book,) he is able to get about nice
ly by the use of a heavy
stated at this conference that he had
held fifty-three regular charges, which
meant more churches, for in some in
stances there were as many as twenty
churches under him at one time. He
declared that, he had been under more
presiding elders than any other member
of the conference. Mr. Cotter has been
superannuated for six years now, but
has never given up preaching, often
times filling a pulpit in Coweta and sur
rounding counties, lie is seated well
Mown in front, and is treated with the
utmost warmth and cordiality.
MAKING GOOD IN 11 IS WESTERN
The following brief sketch of Judge
Presley B. Cole, who removed from
Coweta to Ok laohma several years ago,
will be read with interest and pleasure
by his many friends in this county,
where he wns born and reared. The
article is from the McAlester (Okla.)
Herald of Nov. 3, which says:
“Judge Presley B. Cole, the man who
defied and defeated the Coal Trust in
his race for the Judgeship, after they
had spent thousands of dollars and exert
ed every available effort, and resorting
to all kinds of strategy and employing
men and speakers to fight him in every
precinct in his district. His able, fair
and impartial rulings have attracted at
tention all over the State, lie is setting
precedents that have proven a guide
for the judiciary throughout the State,
lie was the first Judge in the State to
take the initiative and hold that State
Courts had jurisdiction in criminal cases
originating prior to Statehood. The
bar feared it was a mistake and urged
the Judge to wait for a decision of the
Supreme Court in a case appealed just
after Statehood, but he calmly said, ‘l
have studied these questions. The State
Court has jurisdiction. 1 will not wait
for a precedent from the Supreme
Court, tint will make one for them to
follow. ’ He did so, and the Supreme
Court upheld his opinion in every re
spect. He has dealt justly to all alike,
and we may here say that he has earned
the term applied before his election as
the ‘People’s Judge.’ His term of office
expires next year, and he will undoubt
edly enter the race for re-election. ,, '~
record will be his platform.”

R. F. Herring, Sec'y.
At the citizens’ meeting held in the
court-house Tuesday night Alderman
Askew made the statement that the
street committee had spent this year,
up to Nov. 15, the sum of $10,01X1. The
undersigned, as members of the street
committee, desire to correct Alderman
Askew’s statement. From Jan. 1 to
Nov. I the street committee spent
for sewer-pipe, lumber, brick, ce
ment, flagstones, lime, etc., the sum
of $2,435.32. From Jan. 1 to Nov. 15
the street committee expended in
wages the sum of $2,161.59. This
makes a total of $4,599.91—less than
half the amount that Alderman Askew
claims has been spent on the streets of
Newnan the present year. We submit
the foregoing, not so much in defense
of our record as members of the street
committee, but in order that the citi
zens of Newnan may know the truth
(The above expenditures do not in
clude the sum of $2,250 appropriated
by the City Council for tiling the side
walks.) J. T. Swint. Chm’n.,

men believe that Senoia ha3 been in the

nave them, and now is the time to get
