MONEY LOANS On Houston farms proenred at tho low Editob Home Joubnal: The opponents of the Olive bill are be ginning to get uneasy about the coloring of the next" legislature. Pamphlets containing speeches by opponents of this bill have been distributed broadcast over Georgia for the purpose, seemingly, of changing the minds of the people, most of whom wanted this or some similar bill passed. I have been the recipient of some of these pamphlets, neatly _ printed and bound, and wondered at whose ex pense this was done. The print ing and mailing of these speeches would take more than- the salary of an average legislator after his necessary expenses at the capital were paid, so we are obligedjto see that it is either a matter of glory Or business. I prefer to. consider it the last. In one of these speech es, made by Hr.- Glenn, of Whit field, he says: “As the purpose of their organization ts not merely private gain for the projectors, but public utility and the general good, So far as their methods tend to reach the latter, they should be upheld; so far as they tend to the opposite, they should be reprobated and controlled.” This is certain ly all right, and as' it should be, but can the opponents of this bill show one single instance in the whole railroad history of the coun try where the public utility and general good has been considered in preference to the private gain of the projectors. I venture the as sertion that there is not one on record, even in the memory of the “oldest inhabitant.” Therefore, according to the argument of this gentleman, they should be repro bated and controlled; and can there be a more effective method of crontrolling them than by for feiting their rights as corporations when they violate the laws of the state? Mr. Mathews, in his piece pub lished a short time since, says the courts are the proper place for the people to find redress, and quotes the case of Collins vs. the Central Railroad; but this is precisely what the .people dan’t want. A man can’t go into law without a lawyer, and I have yet to find one willing to work without a fee. So in every case wliere a man was wronged, it would mean a big fee for some lawyer. This is all right for the lawyer, and from their standpoint I think I should like it that way myself; but in the way provided by the Olive bill it is the duty of the Attorney General, a paid officer of the state, to look af ter these matters. The latter, in my opinion, is better for the peo ple. I quote from Mr. Glenn again: “That it exercises an immense power for good or ill over those upon whom it comes in contact.” This is freely admitted, and the only reason why we should pass the Olive bill, or some similar bill, is to render it impossible to use that “immense power” to the ill of any oue. Now comes another quo tation which seems to me in direct contradiction to the one first quoted. It is: “It is not the out growth of philanthropy, nor is it built for the* sole purpose of de veloping a country. The obect of its promoters is, in the better sense of the word, a purely selfish one. It is organized, put.iu motion, its trains ran, its schedules fixed, its freight and passenger tariffs ad justed and changed for the purpose of making money, money for those who have it,” It seems exceedingly strange to me- that an. intelligent gentleman making a speech before the House of Rep resentatives of Georgia would use two remarks so strangely contra dictory. The last is certainly the legitimate object of all corporations when they are conducted in a legal, fair and honest manner, but as they Lave extraordinary rights and privileges granted them, they shoule be controlled by a strin gent law; one which they will fear to violate. Mr. Glenn further says that this bill is “a pioneer in its field, and has no predecessor.”-. How, 1 like that. As Georgia was the pioneer- in passing the railroad commission nothing, almost, and then buy it up. I can’t see how the railroad commission, with all the help it Atlanta Journal.

The intention of this Olive bill is to work ill to no one, but to let everyjeombination of capital be and stand alone on its own merits. And, according to my mind, one of the strongest possible argu ments in favor of the passage of this bill, is the fact that the. pam phlets mentioned have beeu so ex tensively distributed. The corpo rations fear the next' legislature, aud take this method of trying to change the minds of the people who “clamored” so for its passage during the last legislature. A. P. Jones. He Know tlie Old Man. A woman who spoke of Go- eeth’s Faust was highly indignant, says the Youths Companion, when tne man with whom she was talking spoke immediately afterward of Geothe. It was vSry impolite she thought, to correct a lady in that fashion. She would have enjoyed a conversation with a gentleman of whom one of our exchanget narrates an annecdote: He was a guest at a Hew York hotel, and called upon the clerk for a sheet of paper, saying that he wished to write a letter. Half an hoar later he again ap proached the counter. He had finished the letter. Would the clerk please read it and see if it was all correct. The clerk glanced at it and said; I see that you spell jug, “gug” That isu,t right. I know it, was the reply; but you see I’m writing to the old man, and he .always spells it that wey. If I put the other “g” to it, he would think I was putting on style over him and forgetting I was his son. He’s sorter tender hearted, and I don’t want to htusg his feelings. And so the letter went off with only one “g” at the end of gug- Wonders of the Bog Star. It is difficult to conceive that this beautiful star is a globe much larger than onr sun; yet- it is a fact that Sirius, the Dog Star, is a sun, many times more mighty than our own. That splendid star, which even in onr most powerful telescope, appears as a mere point of light, is in reality a globe emit ting so enormous a quantity of light and heat that were it to take the place of our sun, every crea ture ou this earth would be con sumed by its burning rays. Sir- ins shining with a far greater lus tre than any ot-her star, it is natu ral that astronomers should have regarded this is the nearest of all the fixed stars, but recent investi gation of the distance of the stars has shown that "the nearest to ns is Alpha Ceutauri, a star, belong- j to: the southern latitudes, though it is probable that Sirius is about one fourth on the list in order of* distance.

How the first genera-' tiouof fashionables that wore eith er of- them could get their own consant to appear in public in such guise, has always been an unsolved mystery. We wear them for no better reason than because our fathers did. The evolution of the stove-pipe, to come back to the" delectable and splendid beaver or silk tile, is somewhat the more curious and in teresting from the fact that it has an American origin. The beaver, of course, has long been known in many shapes, some eveu more hideous than the stove-pipe. Hamlet’s father, the murdered Dane, when lie revisited the pale glimpses of the moon, “had his beaver up,” though it wnsn’t the kind of beaver we are familiar with. Other famous characters had their beavers; but i* was re served for our sober, common- sensed republican, to introduce the hideous stove-pipe. At the time of his visit- to France, the people of that country were rabidly republican. The sage wore a hat of impossible classification. The hatters-were’ struck with it, called it republican, imitated it, put copies of it in the windows, and soon countless "heads in that hot-bed of insurrection, Palis, were wearing the “republican” tile. The tradition of its origin hung vaguely to it. In the early part of this century only a republican head could wear the stove-pipe. The obsequious adherents of the effete monarchies of Europe wore soft hats, and were comfortable and happy. Men who wanted to overturn existing institutions, stuck a stove pipe on their heads as an advertisement to the world of their revolutionary ideas. It was as definite a symbol of republican ism as the cockade was of impe rialism in France, or of “nullifi cation'’ in South Carolina. By 1840, however, the monarch ists affected the hard and uncom fortable stove pipe, and ropubli- eanism had to hide its head under the soft slouch hat. In Europe to day “the apparel,” especially ^the hat, “oft denotes the man.” A soft hat upon a politician’s head at once sets him down as a radical, or republican, or of socialistic pro clivities. On the other hand, the man who boxes up bis aristocratic brains in a hat as tall, hard and miserable as a Goth’s iron helmet, may be safely jotted down down for an imperialist, monarchist, and as a believer in Csssarism. Bradlangb, that broad jind un compromising radical, aud William O’Brien, are almost the only mem bers of the British Parliament that dare or care to challenge aristo cratic criticism by wearing soft- hats. - The repulsive ugliness and iin- comfortableuess of the stove-pipe, and perhaps its almost rigid un alterableness of- shape, are the only things that endear it to fash ion" and serve to perpetuate it. We can, even if fashionable, be comfortable in onr clothes were it not for this"hideous relic the Quakerism and stern republican- ism--thongh present symbol of aristocracy-—the stove-pipe hat. .

Freight, engines travel much slow er than passengers, aud therefore burn more coal per mile. The largest milage made in 1888 by a passenger engine was 81,000 miles, and by a freight engine 50,000 miles.” —- Of the 400,000,000 population of countries recognized as belonging to the civilized world, about 150,- 000,000 are now under republican forms of government. •‘Count that day lost whose slow descending Views'from thy hand n<f worthy action done,” -For renovating the: system, eliminating all poisons from the blood, whether of scrofulous or ma larial origin, S.

They do not study the methods of- cultivation, and therefore are not-prepared to "se lect those which promise the best results. Instead of improving.their lands they, go on from year to year farming worn out lands .that yfeld a very poor return. They should bring their lands into a high state of cultivationby the use of fertil izers, and they should study the markets of the country so as to gc the best prices for their products, and, also, for the purpose of find ing out what crops they can raise with the greatest profit. The secretary points out tha the exports of breadstuffs from this country are falling off, and that this condition of affairs is ow ing to the competition from India, Egypt, Russia, Australia and .oth er countries. He advises the farm ers to turn their attention to sneh agricultural products as are now imported, and also to raise, to as great an extent as they can, every thing they need in their own households. In this connection he calls attention to the statement that §350,000,000 worth or farm products were imported into this country last year. Some of these products, he says, could be pro duced iu this country in quantities sufficient to supply the home de mand; and he thinks that the farm ers should be protected in produc ing them. The secretary’s party dees not seem to agree with his views. In the McKinley tariff bill the duty on rice is reduced and that-on su gar is repealed up to a certain grade. In the west and south the farmers are just now giving a great deal of attention to sugar. In the south sugar cane is being planted more extensively than ever before, and in the west great preparations are being made to cultivate the su gar beet. There are those who say that if the cultivation of the sugar beet proves to be successful enough sugar for home consump tion will be produced on the farms of this co an try within a very few years. A very lage amount of rice is imported, and yet there are tens of thousands of acres of rice pro ducing lands in this and other states which are mot cultivated at all. ■ Wliile it is safe to say that the value of the agricultural products of the kind-that can be produced is nowhere near §350,000,000 a year, nevertheless the annual importa tions of rice, sugar and molasses must be close to §100,000,000, and from sugar and molasses the Re publican party, contrary to the suggestion of Secretary Rusk, pro pose to withdraw the protection they now have, and to reduce the duty-on rice. Secretary Rusk: should send his farmers’ message to the ways and means committee. It is interesting to scan the col umns of the Georgia newspapers notably our weekly exchanges- ana watch, through them, the in dnstrial growth of the counties they represent. The Constitution has frequently made"editorial men tion of their work, but it deserves, and receives, more than casual comment and endorsement. It is safe to say that the weekly press has done more work for Georgia in this year of grace and golden aehievmeut than in.any past year of her history, not that they had in any degree slighted her inter ests before, bat with one accord they turned a bright leaf in the book of progress and made a Hew Year’s resplntion to work for Geor gia as they had never worked in ■all the busy past, and right faith fully have tiiey kept it, and right Bravely have tiiey blazed the way for the people and laid the. indus trial lines in pleasant places.

Jiist such ringing headlines as the above appear in onr exchanges from week to week, and they show how bravely and persistently the editors are working for the good of the people and the state. Their efforts should be appreciated; the people should sustain them by their hearty support and encour agement, and we believe they are doing so very generally.
