We have examined the Tax Re
ceiver’s books, and find them in
apparently good order, and we feel
constrained to compliment the Re
ceiver on the fine showing he has
made in the increase of the taxable
property for the county; being
something over half million dol
lars, and we believe this is due in
a great measure to his diligence,
and faithful and fearless discharge
of his duty.

The man in public life has his
troubles, both before and after he
is elected. Some of the people are
unreasonable and others are un
fair, says the Griffin News and
Sun. They believe almost any re
port about a candidate or a man in
public place, unless he happens to
be their favorite; and there are not
wanting alert competitors for the
place who will rarely hesitate to
make capital in any way they can.
That there are a great many com
petent and worthy men who would
never consent to accept public of
fice or attempt to serve and please
the people, is not the least aston
ishing. The people fail in some
instances to either hold the incom
petent and unworthy responsible
for their shortcomings or to give
due credit and commendation to
the capable and faithful man who
knows little about the art of elec
tioneering. It should be the study
and the pleasure of every good cit
izen to find out just who are the
efficient and faithful public officials
and to say and do everything
within reason to sustain them; but
how many ot the voters do any
thing of this kind? Many of them
vote against the very candidate
who most deserves their support.
There is another school who
must not he classed with people
who mean well but do wrong, as
indicated above. These latter are
the cheap grafters who fasten and
fatten upon the candidates. Truly,
it has Welcome the custom of some
individuals to practice graft and in
timidation among political candi
dates. The demands of these peo
ple are so rapacious that men who
are fit are often discouraged from
entering contests. The worst type
of these strikers is found in the
unscrupulous and unauthorized
gratter who demands money from
every candidate he can reach un
der threat that refusal will cause
the enmity of whatever organiza
tion, society or union he may claim
to represent. Selt-respecting or
ganizations uf men do not author
ize such practices.
There can be no doubt that this
is a practice which is worse in ef
fect than a statutory property qual
ification, for it tends to crowd the
man of modest means out of the
competition unless he is willing to
accept the support of self seeking
interests which will pay his ex
penses if he will wear its collar and
do its bidding when elected. Can
didates should stand with united
front in resistance to the grafters
and strikers. The fellows who at
tempt to hold up men who stand
for public office often have no more
influence in deciding elections
than the confidence men and beg
gars who solicit money at all times
in business circles. Not one of
them can show authorizing cre
dentials, but each is attempting to
make hay by practicing upon the
timidity of both experienced and
Yet these “fellows” sometimes
have an influence that is extensive
and many a candidate has been de
feated because he declined to buy
one or more of them. Candidates
are held up during almost every
; election and the “special interest”
that holds up the more timid of
them is not always the soulless
! corporations. It is a most shame
ful state of affairs, tending to ab
solutely debar from the public ser
vice the man who stands for hon
est methods and sound principles,
and to even drive honest voters
away from the polls.
