OF CARROLL Carrollton, Ga., April 4.—Judge R. W. Freeman delivered one of the strongest charges today to the grand jury of the Carroll superior court ever delivered here. He at tacked all forms of violation of the law, and more especially the dis turbance of public worship. He said: ‘•Of all crimes this is one of the most inexcusable and aims directly- at the foundations of our liberty in violating our constitution,which gives the right to worship accord ing to the dictates of our con science. undisturbed.’’ He charged strongly and elo- c, ltly on the evil of the illegal sale of liquors, saying that nearly all crimes were traceable to that evil. He said: "In my judgment, the illegal traffic is the mother of all crimes Welcome Mr .Toe Lane is very low with ty phoid pneumonia. Mrs J B Strong is on the sick list this week. Mr J W Summers was out at Sunday School last. Sunday. He has been confined at home for some time with that painful dis ease, rheumatism. We were glad to see him back again.

Reports from several districts were expected,but only one was read. This report was from Cedar Creek and was read by Dr. McGhee, Secretary of the County Association. Dr. McGhee addressed the meet ing in forcible terms, stating that he understood six or seven dis tricts of the county h»d been or ganized and he had expected re ports from that many districts to be made in the meetipg. He de clared the farmers throughout the county are cutting down the cot ton acreage and will use less fer tilizers. Many have joined the Association; and some who have not, have joined in the reduction movement. Dr. McGhee’s report from Cedar Creek was encouraging, and the Association asked the newspapers of the county to publish it. A summary of the report is appended to this article. President Brannon exhorted the farmers to stand firm tor reduction of acreage and fertilizers and made a ringing speech to the assembly. The Association adjourned to hear the address of lion.

In charging on gambling, he said that the law does not mean that only the little negro who plays a game of "skin” out in the 1 woods snould be brought to justice for the violation of tne law, but it meant that both he and the ihous- and-dollar society gambler should be brought before tne bar of jus tice, side by side, and made to suf fer alike* as the rich can be as guilty as the poorest negro.— Wednesday's Atlanta Constitu tion. AN EMORY GRADUATE. In an article in last Sunday's Constitution, in reference to the class of 1905 of Emory College, appears the following paragrapn in reference to a young Coweta countian: "Cotter Surrette Martin, A. B., is Turin’s only representative. He entered college as a freshman in 1901. In his freshman year he made the relay, baseball and foot ball teams. He is a very promin ent member of Phi Gamma Liter ary Society. In his junior year he was the anniversarian of Phi Gam ma, and the poet of Phi Gamma this year, and has participated in several mid-term debates. He is I local editor of The Emory Phoenix. He will pursue studies at Vander bilt and probably enter foreign missionary fields." One hundred dollars has already been received by treasurers of the Faver monument fund, and it seems that there should be no dif ficulty in securing $200 or $300 more to complete the fund. Those in charge of this work do not con template an expenditure of more than 5400, as they expect to have only a modest monument erected over the grave of this man who was one of the most unselfish citi zens Coweta county has ever had. Some of the contributors to this fund, besides those already men tioned in former numbers of the News, are Governor Terrell, Hon. Hoke Smith, Judge J. H. Lump kin, Judge R. T. Dorsey, J. Ray mond Lee, of Atlanta; T. M. Zel- lars, Grantville: E. C. Palmer, G. Wynn Smith, L. A. Perdue, Thomas Leigh, Newnan. Other contributions have been received from persons who desire to with hold their names. In sending $5 for this fund,John F. Thurmond, ot Rhome, Texas, wrote as follows to W.L. Stallings, Secretary of the Monument As sociation: "Yes, he was my friend, and I delight to honor one of Coweta’s sons.

MCGHEE S REPORT. A summary of Dr. McGhee’s re port to the Association, of condi tions in Cedar Creek District, is as follows: Twenty-three farmers signed pledge to reduce acreage and fer tilizers 25 per cent. In 1904 they planted 1,597 acres in cotton. Their acreage in 1905 will be 1,167. In 1904 used 195 tons guano; in 1905 will use 140 tons. They made 649 bales of cotton last year with 72 plows.

Faver, both of whom, he declared were numbered with his closest and most highly esteemed friends. Mr. Smith’s speech was a clear, forciable presentation of facts, figures and arguments in refer ence to agricultural conditions in the South, past and present. He advocated reduction of acreage and fertilizers this season, holding the cotton now on hand for ro cents and the general plans of the South ern Cotton Growers’ Association. His remarks were pithy anp I pointed and elicited frequent ap- j plause from his audience. Mr. ! Smith was honored by the pres ence of a number of ladies in his i audience.

A like reduction throughout the cot ton belt will accomplish all the South desires. Dr. McGhee de clares the reduction throughout Coweta county will be as great as this report shows in Cedar Creek District, and says he has informa tion to the effect that hundreds of counties in Georgia and other cot ton States are making better re ports than this. The question of making a coun ty display at the State Fair was brought before the Association, and President Brannon was author ized to appoint a committee of farmers and business men to take charge of the matter. He selected the following named gentlemen to compose this committee: H. C. Fisher, R. D. Cole, Jr., B. L, Red- wine, J. T. Kirby, A. H. Young, C. C. Parrott and I. N, Orr.
