It is a happy fact that the ma

The Piedmont Exposition, the
State Pair, the Columbus Exposi
tion and the several county fairs
will admirably illustrate the agri
cultural and industrial interests of
Georgia this year. The subject is
superior, and the object lessons
will be pleasing and instructive.
The election of governor, state
house officers, and legislators of
Georgia will take place next Wed
nesday, the first day of October.
None of the officers have oppo
sition in Houston county, yet they
should receive at least the full
democratic vote of-the county.
They are the nominees of the par
ty, by direct primary vote, and we
owe it to them to give them as
much in the election as we di
the primary. Besides, the i
licans in congress have often taunt
ed our Representatives with the
small vote that we occasionally
poll, and charge that it indicates
suppression and fraud. A fall
vote at every election would null!
fy this taunt and charge.
There is another reason. On the
same ticket containing the names
of the officers to be elected, we
must vote either for cr against the
ratification of tivo amendments to
our state constitution.
The first of these provides for
the first reading of bills introduced
in the legislature to be by title on
ly. This amendment is in,the di
rect line of economy, and if rati
fied will materially decrease the
length of the sessions of the legis
lature. The paragraph and sec
tion of the constitution to be
amended provides that the full
text of every bill ‘ shall be read,
though no action on the first read
ing is taken further than reference
to committees. The amendment
should be adopted. We don’t
know how other counties will vote,
and the full strength" of Houston
democrats may be necessary to
ratify this amendment.
The other amendment to be
voted on permits the legislature to
grant pensions to widows of Con
federate soldiers. This should com
mand the suffrage of every demo
crat in the state, and we hope the
full vote of Houston will be given
for its ratification. We don’t
know how other counties will vote
on this, and we should see to it
that it does not fail through any
fault of Houston democrats.
Let every democrat in Houston,
and all others who can unite with
us, by choice or persuasion, go to
the polls and vote next Wednesday.
Tickets have been printed,' and
the necessary election papers for
warded to each precinct. The
ticket is as follows:
