A state convention of the Geor gia Temperance Association has been called to assemble in Atlanta in Slay next. The cause is a no ble one, and the work to be done of jno.H. hodges, Editor and Publisher outlined in the result of that meet- very great importance. The tern- PERRY, THURSDAY, March - 20. "Work on the Macon & Birming ham railroad is being pushed rap idly forward. The old capital in Atlanta has been sold to Mr. Joel Hurt, at pub lic outcry, for §125,500 A territorial government has been provided for Oklahoma by enactment of congress. A MAN who cannot conform to the wishes of the people 'should not seek to serve the people. An elegant hotel will soon be erected at Cordele, where the Joe Brown mansion now stands. Prince BisMabck has resigned the German Chancellorship, and thff'Emperor has accepted the res ignation. . • A jgei: The Blair educational bill will be voted on in the United States Senate to-day. The advocates and opponents of the bill both claim a small majority. Gen. Phil Cook is a candidate for Secretary of State, which office he now fills by appointment—the unexpired term of Col.N. C.

Sunday School As sociation will be held at Tliomas- ville on Wednesday April 30th, and Thursday May 1st. The prohibitionists of Pulaski county are jubilant. In the liquor election held there Tuesday the prohibitionists won by a majority of 173—an increase of 75 votes over the vote two years ago. A bill to make. Wyoming terri tory a state has been introduced in the House, of Representatives. It is a republican scheme to gain congressmen for that party. The surplus in the United States treasury is being rapidly decreased. During the first year of President Harrison’s administration -the re duction has been from $110,000,- -000 to less than $40,000,000. mg. A preamble and resolution of political character was adopted, copy sent to the chairman of the democratic executive committee, and one to the chairman of the re publican party. The resolution is entirely cor rect and proper, as follows: “Whereas, We deem it advisable to af ford the people an ample opportunity consider men and measures, and to give them facilities fora full and free expres sion of their preferences, and this, such time, as will in the least interfere with the duties of the farm. Therefore, resolved. That wo most respectfully request the executive committee of the respective po litical parties in Georgia to order or rec ommend that nominations be made by primaries in all counties where nomina tions are to be had, and the same extend to militia district in the counties, and the' day fixed for the nominations members of both houses of the legisla ture and state officers and congressmen be deferred to the latest possible day, not soonor than the 1st of August.” President Livingston was pres ent and concurred in this action. The request made is entirely within the bounds of propriety, and we endorse it fully. Such ac tion could have been taken with good grace by any representative body of citizens, and that it was taken by the official representa tives of a great business organiza tion only adds to its pertinence. In behalf of of the white farmers of Georgia these gentlemen make a very reasonable request, for The Pulton county alliance will urge all the county alliances in the stato to join them in making Georgia Alliance exhibit at the Piedmont Exposition next fall. Much damage to the levees and plantations along the Mississippi river in Louisiana resulted the latter part of last week from an overflow caused by floods higher up the river. Geobgly melon growers antici pate a profitable crop this season as they have assurances that the railroads will serve them more equitably than heretofore, in .the matter of transportation and fre igh charges. Editor Dick Gbubb, of the Da rien .Gazette, who is a political prognosticator of considerable merit, predicts that a “dark horse” will be nominated and elected gov ernor of Georgia. Editor Grubb • may be correct. It is reported that Judge Thomas B. Lawson will 4>e a can didate for congress in the eighth district or Georgia. The present congressman, Capt. H. H. Carlton is quite popular, but in Judge Lawson he will find an opponent “worthy of his steel- The Okeefenokee swamp belong ing to the State of Georgia .was sold, through sealed bids adver- tised for, on last Tuesday for 264 cents per acre, to the Suwanee Ca nal Company, a company incorpo rated by the last legislature. It is acres. The Meriwether county Alli ance recently adopted and publish ed a set of resolutions requesting the county alliances to hold con- - ventions for the purpose of nomi nating candidates for the legisla ture, state officers, governor, aud congressmen. The votes for. state senators and congressman to be consolcdated by districts, and for state officers by a majority vote of U Blown, of the Southern Alli- all the alliances. ' ’ 1 Tiie Chautauqua issue of the Albany Daily News .and Adver tiser, last- Sunday morning,is a pa per of which the publisher and the people of Albany should be proud. It contains twelve pages of seven columns each. The article con cerning the second annual session of the Georgia Chautauqua is full and instructive, giving a complete programme for the entire session, every day of next week. In addi tion it also gives a large amount of loeal and general news attractively which there can be no improper motive. This action clearly indicates that it is not the purpose of the alli ance to assume a political position that is not in accord with the pos itive duty of every citizen of the state. The, alliancemen desire am ple opportunity to consider men ard measures, and facilities for full and free expression of their preferences. These privileges are guaranteed them by our laws, and all men should exercise them fully. It is entirely correct for the al liancemen, as well as other citi zens, to measare candidates by the standard of their own princieles, and to refuse support to those who do not fill the measure. Even should the alliance "decide to go further than this in politics, no one could justly complain though- there are many who would deprecate tInformation of a strict alliance political party. We do not apprehend any such extreme ac tion, for we have too much confi dence ip the judgment of the men who form this organization- that has done so much to enhance tkp agricultural interests of our coun try. The candidate who fears the re sult of an application of the alli ance test, had best bottle his polit ical ambition and voluntarily re main in private life. The alliance- men propose to do only as all voters should do, find out how the candidates stand on matters of public interest, determine the per sonal ability of each candidate, and then vote'for those who are best calculated to fill prcferly the positions to which they aspire. He is not fit for office who is un willing to submit to such a test. It is exactly right 'that the wish es of the farmers should be con sidered in fixing the dates of the nominations to he held. The republican majority in con gress seems intent on perpetua ting their party in power, and all they do is with this purpose fore most in their minds. They -are now attempting to enact a law pro viding for federal management of congressional elections, and a law to prevent any change in the forma tion of congressional districts. Such law's would certainly violate the spirit of the constitution, but for this the republican politicians care nothing. ' The twelfth annual state con vention of the Young Men’s Chris tian Association of Georgia will be held at Augu’sta from ■ April 10th to 13th inclusive. Reduced fares have been arranged, and ail properly authorized delegates will be entertained free while in Au gusta. For specific information address Geo. C. Genner, State sec retary, Augusta, Ga. Col. Livingston and Editor H. ance Farmer, have been invited by Grand Master Workman Powder- ly to meet the Knights of Labor at the assembly' meeting in Cin- cinuati next month. Mr. Brown will attend aud deliver an address in behalf of the Alliauce of Geor gia. It is said Col Livingston can not attend, on account of his many engagements. peranee people throughout the state should see to it that every section of Georgia shall be repre sented by delegates in active sym pathy with the temperance cause. THE OFFICIAL CALL. To the Temperance People of Georgia: A convention of the Georgia Temperance Association is hereby called to meet _ in the city of Atlanta on Thursday, the 8th day of May, next, to continue in session two days or more, at the discretion of the-convention when assembled. The object is to advance tem perance reform in the state in such manner as the convention may determine. All temperance and. prohibition men and women of the state,wheth er belonging to any state or local organization or not, who have -al lied themselves with the temper ance people, were made members of this association at a convention held in 1886, and are most cordial ly invited to participate in send ing delegates without limit, to rep resent lodges, unions or other or ganizations, or counties, and the chairman of each delegation will be expected to give the status of prohibition in his locality. We suggest that public meetings be held at the court house in every county in the" state on the first Tuesday in April, or May, to ap point delegates. Distinguished speakers will be invited to address the convention; and an attractive programme will be contributed to the convention and to the public throughout the session. Let the .members of the execu tive committee of- the several con gressional districts of the state see that this call is published in the papers in their districts, and see that every county is represented. The railroads in the state will be asked to give reduced rates to and from the convention. The papers of tbe state are res pectfully requested to publish this’ call. By order of the executive com mittee. C. R. Pbingle, Pres.' Ga. Tern. Association. G. Whidby, Secretary Ex. Committee. STATE AT LABGE. W. H. Felton, A. E. Buck, J. B. McGehee, W. B. Hill.

Dennard, usually so noisy, so newsy-and so busy, has furnished but little news for sevelal days. CoL H. Stafford dropped in few minutes to warm last Saturday, and I think I heard Mrs. Stafford say; “it took you a long time to ance, ou Satiuxky, the 5th day of April, next,,at 10 o’clock a. m. Each sub-alliance will prepare to be represented by a full quota of as much that is of vital warm, or they had a mighty poor importance to the order will be fire in that house.” The last I saw of him he seemed to be very busy trying to fit a Ho. 8 shoe to a Ho. 10 foot. The only way to perform that trick, is to trim the foot splice the shoe. Mr. Bob Easom, of Irwinton, spent a few days last week with his sister, Mrs. D. W. Holland, learn that his visit was on matters purely business. Mr. C, A. Redding has a mule that has quite a fondness for chick en’s feet. It is said that whenever a chicken gets in the trough where he is eating, that he catches it and eats np both legs and feet. This is said to have happened several times recently. Mr. R. gets the chickens to eat, and I suppose don’t care for the crippling, but the good lady,' how she smokes and flames. 'Some of your townsmen were here fishing last week. I haven’t heard what success the entire par ty had, but am inclined to think that it was a -case of first • come, first served. I often wonder why Maj. Brun son don’t come fishing. He is said to be a good hand to catch “Suck ers,” and might catch better fish if he would only try. Appoint a day Major, and' come along, I’ll go with yon if I have to draw my mule up in the fence jam and leave him. Snakes are mighty bad, so bring along a little extract, to be used in an emergency only. If reports be true, and the signs are good, I fear Dennard will fur nish work for a grand jury, and maybe for a coroner. A hint to the wise, etc. 1 want to stty something about Dennard, where it is, and what it is, but will wait untill later. Kathleen Gleanings, The second annual session of the Georgia Clrantauqna begins at Albany next Monday, preceded by a special sermon Sunday. Be sides the strictly instructive fea tures of the Chautauqua, including lectures, addresses, special les sons, etc., the programme for pleasure each day is complete. All Georgians who can should attend. Albany is one of the most delight ful cities in Georgia. The following Georgia patents were granted for the week ending March 11,1890, reported expressly for this paper by Joseph H. Hun ter, Solicitor of American and ForeigfT Patents, Washington, D. C.: W. C. and J. A. Aycock, Griffin, blind-stile boring machine; M. Brosius, Atlanta, railway rail; B. F. Short, Buena Yista, wagon body. —It is very gratifying to hear from our readers so frequently that the Home Jotjbnal serves them satisfactorily. This comes direct ly to ns almost every day, and the new subscriptions we receive only add to our determination to make the Home Jotjbnal indispensable to the people of Houston county. The bill introduced in congress by Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massa chusetts, providing for federal su pervision of congressional elec tions, is aimed directly at the Souths with the definite purpose in view of securing republican con gressmen by virtue of returning board decisions. The work of grading the pro jected railroad from Abbeville to The Georgia Press Association will meet in Savannah next Tues day. After the business of the as sociation is attended to, there will be an excursion to Jacksonville, to Tampa aud to Cuba. We regret that the Home Jouenal cannot be represented. Good citizens always consider measures and critically measure the men who are candidates. This is dearly the duty of every citizen. Windy and cold. Hot much news that would in terest one. Nearly everyone are through hauling guano, and through plant ing corn. Oats look sick, but hope they will come out, for ’tis a. crop that would be pretty bad to lose. Kathleen is improving. One of our neighbors came over the other day and seemed to be astonished at the improvements made here since he was in town last. Two new houses, one a dwelling,’ the other a blacksmith shop. Dogs have been depredating on Mr. J. O.’s sheep; they killed four one night last week. We should have a dog law; by all means. If we had I think I could get the most of the eggs my hens laid, and Mr. W. would have more mutton. He has offered a premi um for a dead neighborhood dog Mr. T. B. Chauncey brought to this place last Saturday a wild tur key’s foot that would make a track six inches. It also had' a spur one inch long. This is the largest tur key foot we ever saw, the turkey was killed by Mr. C. Saturday morning. Mr. R. S. Wynn, of Macon, was here Saturday. Mr. J. G. Brown, of Grovania. spent Sunday here. _ .Shoit Parker is now hammering iron in his new - shop. Yours truly, X. I. Appm. The quarterly session of Hon ton County Alliance, for the quar ter ending March 31st, 1890, will beheld with "Oak Grove sub-alli- thfi county to meet- with us at ou: presented for consideration. The Secretary has a package contain ing a variety of grass .and other seeds from the state Agricultural Department for gratuitous distri bution, which he will distribute at that meeting, (if not sooner ap plied for,) to any alliancemen, or other citizens, who will experiment withrthemj and, lor the sake of the needed information to. encourage, promote and develop grass culture in Georgia, report res alts to the State Agricultural Department.
