MR. BRYAN ON MORAL I88UE8. I
In his address before the New j
York Alumni of Syracuse Uni-;
versity Mr. Bryan, speaking about
moral issues of present and per-1
tinent importance, took up a posi
tion of impregnable strength.
Food adulteration is as he de
scribed it a "crime against the
common people” of this country.
It robs the workingman of his
strength. The kindred evil of
drug adulteration robs the invalid
of some of his chances of recovery.
Yet the malign influence of the
Whiskey Trust in Washington is
sufficient to prevent the passage
by the Senate of a pure-food law.
When Mr. Bryan spoke in con
demnation of "high finance and
low morality” he could cite the
Loomis case as one where a high
bank official was flagrantly misus
ing bis trust. And, though Mr.
Bryan did not mention them by
name, the eminent promoters of
the Grass Twine Trust have re
cently pointed- his remarks about
prominent financiers who increase
their dividends by immoral prac
It is not the least of Mr. Bryan’s
value as a moralist that he is also
an optimist. "I believe,” he says,
"we are awakening to a better
government and a better time.”
Undoubtedly we are; but there is
much work of strong protest to be
done yet before the public fully
appreciates the menace of what
Mr. Roosevelt once called “the
wealthy criminal classes.”—New
Mr. Askew is a well known
young business man of Newnan,
being a member of the mercantile
firm of Askew Bros. He is es
teemed by a large circle of friends
for his business sagacity and suc
cess as well as for*his genial nature
and pleasant address.
Mrs. Askew is a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bailey. She
is a handsome and cultured young
woman; one whose lovable and
charming personality has made
her a general favorite in her circle
After their marriage Mr. and
Mrs. Askew came to Newnan and
they are now at home to their
friends at the residence of Mrs. J.

NEWNAN IN THR0E8 OF EPIDEMIC.
An epidemic of colds and la
grippe is sweeping over the city
and the surrounding country, and
the physicians hardly have oppor
tunity for eating and sleeping.
The pastor of one of the city
churches, who is familiar with
conditions throughout Newnan,
estimates that 400 white people in
the city are affected with colds and
la grippe; and a leading physician,
on hearing this estimate, said "It
seems to me the number is 4,000.”
' Stories similar to tnis come from
every section of Georgia. The ex
tremely inclememt weather of the
past few weeks has done its dire
work and humanity is suffering in
