Home few people in ('luroll enmi

More than one-half of the white
voters ol Dougherty county are
members of the Hoke Smith club
Evidently, the “unterrified"
Democrats of Georgia are not ter
rified by the cry that Hoke Smith
is striving to disrupt the party.
The old-timers are hard to fool.
Misalleged support of General
John 1$. Gordon for the United
States Senate is another point at
which the Hon. Clark Howell
neglected to properly adjust his
The fact that all of the other
candidates lor governor are run

Hoke Smith alone, means that
they are all agreed on the proposi

candidate in the race.

The palpitating public is still
waiting for Syd Tapp to make good
his threat to “skin Hoke Smith on
every stump in Georgia"—like
wise, the same public is still wait

There is but one Populist daily
paper (the Augusta Tribune) in
the world and that is opposing
Hoke Smith with all the power
and eloquence that it commands—
and that is a good deal.—Milledge-
And yet we hear from a certain
quarter that the Populists, to a
man, are conspiring with lloke
Smith to wreck the Democratic
The anguish in the Howell camp
is growing fearful. Clark has
found it necessary to call to his as
sistance the New York Sun; and a
recent edition of the Sun, contain
ing marked editorials favorable to
Howell and attacking Smith, has
been hr indcasted over the State.
Clark says he scorns the supp >rt
of his honest Populist neighbi rs
in Georgia, and then proceeds to
tie up with the Republican New
York Sun, the foullest, dirtiest
South-hater in the United States,
a paper that for the past forty
years has been the South’s veno
unous and rabid enemy.
Terrell county; the home of
Congressman James M. Griggs,
Hon. O H. Stevens and the lat
ter’s son-in-law, Hon. M. J. You
mans, Chairman of the State
Democratic Executive Committee,
is overwhelmingly for Hoke Smith.
This fact was clearly evidenced in
the recent mass meeting held in
Dawson. The meeting was domi
nated by Hoke Smith’s supporters;
lloke Smith men were elected
chairman and secretary of the
meeting, and the chairman and a
majority of thn members of the
county executive committee elect
ed by the mass meeting, are Hoke
Smith men. The distinguished
gentlemen mentioned above are
not supposed to be supporting
lloke Smith enthusiastically, but
the plain people and business men
of Tenell county have emphatical

It is said that Colonel Estill is
making Hon. Hoke Smith nervous,
before the thing is over the south
Georgia candidate will have ’em
all worried.—Darien Gazette.
The Colonel’s friends have been
worried for some time over the
idea of him allowing himself to be
used as wedge wood in an effort to
make Clark Howell, a man whom
the majority of the voters of Geor
gia don’t want, governor of the
State. Then again it is strikingly
strange that Hoke Smith is the
only candidate that Colonel Estill
is making nervous. Do you mean
to tell us that Hoke Smith is the
only one of the candidates Estill is
running against at present?—
Howell Ties Up to The New
The State of Georgia is pretty
well inforpied that Hon. Clark
Howell tried to trade with Watson
and failed to get “My Dear Tom"
to come into his trap. His ex
planations havo gotten him deeper
and deeper into the mess which he
himself raised in trying to fasten
Tom on to the Smith platform.
This proved a terrible boomerang
to Howell. He feels that he made
a "bust," but is to be congratulat
ed on keeping up the best face
over it he could behind Hoke’s
back since it failed to annihilate
Hoke at Columbus,as he expected.
Then they started the bar room fit
on and they have rung about all
the changes possible on it. It
was small and mean enough turn,
the stomach of a blue bottle fly,
but at last, determined to leave no
stone unturned to find billingsgate
low enough for their attack on an
honorable Georgian, tbe Howell
press gang, directed by the Hon.
Clark Howell himself, turns to the
press of New York for help. They
found what they wanted. They
found the meanest Republican,
South-hating organ on God’s green
earth; one that never found epi
thets too foul to hurl at our side
of the United States nor missed an
occasion to raise the bloody shirt
threats against Georgia. To name
this organ to you is enough; it is
the New York Sun, the meanest
of Georgia’s enemies in the Re
publican ranks and the only one
that owns a complete dictionary of
the real Dana billingsgate. The
world has long ago found it con
tained foulness that would not stay I
on the stomach of a vulture and
would kill the ptomaines in de-i
cayed bacon. A recent edition of I
the Sun has been sent broadcast :
over Georgia with marked editor
lals, the work of the Howell liter
ary gang. The inspired editorial
is plain enough to the most casual
observer. Clark would “go to the
stake” to avoid Tom; but can tie
to this Republican slop tub. It!
will not hurt Hoke, but what willj
the people think of the Georgian |
who tinkers with this old Repub
lican wretch.—Waynesboro True!
Soldier Killed at Fort McPher
Lewis Purcell, the deserter from
tlu* United States army who was
captured in Newnan about three
weeks ago, was killed at Fort Mc
Pherson last Monday morning.,
Purcell had been a prisoner from
the time of his return to the Fort
by the authorities here, and at the
time of his death was employed in
hauling wood, under the strict
surveillance of a guard. At what
seemed to 1m* a favorable oppor
tunity, Purcell leaped into the
empty wagon, lashed his team into
a run and attempted to leave the
government reservation. His
guard, a soldier named Ludlatn,
after calling several times for Pur
cell to halt, fired and shot him in
the back. Purcell lived but
twenty minutes after lM*ing shot.

“LaGrange Heights” Property
This property is that splendid residential portion of the city that became so thoroughly and favorably known last February by
the large number of people who bought lots on it. It is in the part of LaGrange that is growing most rapidly, and since the first lots
were sold in February last many of those who purchased have either prepared to build or have sold their lots at a good profit. Some
Some good profits have been made by those w’ho bought from a purely investment standpoint, and we are now going to sell the lots
in the second addition of “LaGrange Heights” at such prices that everyone who buys can get in on the ground floor and make some
The lots that we will sell on next Thursday, April 1 9th, are known as the second addition of “LaGrange Heights” and adjoin
the first addition. They are high and dry and from them can be seen all over LaGrange. The prices that will prevail will be about
the same that is now asked for acreage property in bulk of one acre or jmore. In other words, we intend to place these city lots, I
with all the advantages of a city, on sale at prices about the same as acreage property is now being sold in LaGrange. We bought B
a large tract; paid cash and got it cheap, and intend to give you the advantage of our purchase.
Our prices will be low, giving every man a chance to make some good profit on the deal. Our terms will be easy, being only ten dollars cash down
for each lot, and five dollars per month thereafter, until the lot is paid for.
No city in Georgia is growing at a more rapid rate than LaGrange at this time, and the new railroad, new factories and other industries are bringing
people here on every train. The churches, schools and colleges of LaGrange make this city an ideal home for the man of family.
Do not Forget the Date of the Sale, Next Thursday, April 19,10:00 a. m. Come and Bring Your Friends
For a little money invested now you can reap big returns at a later date. There has not been a piece of property changed hands in LaGrange in re
cent months at les than from 50 to 300 per cent profit. Others have made money by buying real estate in this live, growing community, so why not you?
Terms are easy and prices are low, so what better chance in life is there for you to start than next Thursday, April 19th, at 10 o’clock a. m., at the
big sale in LaGrange of choice city property.
