There is now pending in Georgia
a contest between state officers of
Georgia to determine the uses to
which public funds held for specific
purposes can be applied.
There is in the state treasury
$430,000 that has accumulated by
sale of public property. It is alleged
this fund is specifically devoted by
the state constitution to the bonded
debt of the state. Heretofore this
fund has been used temporarily for
current expenses, whenever there
was not other funds in the treasury
to meet them.
However, the effort last year to
use this public property fund to
build a new railroad depot at Atlan
ta directed attention to the specific
purpose for which this fund was ac
cumulated and held. Hon. Joe Hall,
and others opposed to building the
depot, held that the public property
fund could not be legally used for
any purpose other than to pay inter
est on the bonded debt of the state,
and to redeem the bonds as they be
Last week there was need for a
considerable sum of money to pay
the teachers of public schools
throughout the state, and an effort
was made to use this public proper
ty fund for that purpose. Treasurer
Park refused to pay this money on
the warrants drawn, holding that
this fund was not available for any
purpose other than that specifically
designated by the constitution.
Mandamus was issued to compel
Treasurer Park to pay the money on
the warrants of Commissioner Glenn,
and a decision will be rendered this
week by Judge Lumpkin of Fulton
Superior court. Then, no matter
what that decision may be, the case
will go the Supreme court of Geor

Two million fruit trees, says the

This information is given on the au

been planted within that time. Of
this great total the greatest number
are in north Georgia, but about
800,000 were planted in South Geor

Georgia next season.

Candler says the teachers must and
will be paid.
It is well that the question is to
be settled by the supreme legal tri

to await that decision.
If it is true that the fiind in ques
tion is set apart by the state consti
tution for a specific purpose, then
Treasurer Park is right in refusing
to use it for any other purpose. It
is a trust fund, and such funds
should not be carelessly used.
However, each county can take
care of its teachers temporarily by
locally borrowing the necessary
funds. Some counties thus paid
their teachers promptly last year,
and can do so again.
