and successful merchant, has re

years one of the most popular com
mercial travelers in the State; and
while Newnan has been his home,
but little of that time has been
spent here. Mr. Adams’ friends
welcome him to a business which

house last Monday morning. Judge

that the State’s convicts might lie
used in the work of construction.
He delivered a ringing call to
Democrats to rally for the October
election and bury Socialism and
Indcpundentisiu under an ava
landie of ballots; calling attention
to the fact that all of the Demo
cratic nominees for State offices
have opposition from Independent
or Socialist candidates.
