Pope Brown is Not a Candidate.
In a letter addressed to the editor
of the Macon Telegraph, and pub
lished in that paper last Saturday,
Hon. J. Pope Brown declares that
he will not be a candidate for gov
ernor of Georgia.
He says that his ambition and in
clination prompt him to enter the
race, but his business interests impel
him to a contrary course. To his
friends who have offered support, he
expresses cordial thanks. The chief
cause of his withdrawal is expressed
in the following sentence.
“I am called upon to decide be
tween business and politics, and as
I ride over the fields that have been
the best friends to me and my fath
ers before me, X feel that I will make
a mistake in turning my back upon
them to seek even the highest posi
tion within the gift of the people.”
There are many men throughout
Georgia who will regret that Mr.
Brown will not make the race, and
doubtless the other candidates for
governor and their partisan friends
What Mr. Brown’s chances of suc
cess were at the time of his with
drawal need not now be discussed.
He is no longer a factor in the gub
ernatorial campaign, further .than he
may exercise his personal influence
in behalf of one of the other candi
dates. Mr. Brown is such a man for
whom Georgians could well afford
to vote, and his worth and the high
esteem in which he is deservedly
held is in no degree affected ad
versely by this decision.
This editor was prepared to sup
port Mr. Brown as a candidate for
governor, but we think he has acted
right in deolining to enter the cam
paign when business interests de
manded a contrary course.
His decision but adds to his repu
tation us a man of sound business
judgment. It is laudable for a ca
pable and worthy man to aspire to
political distinction, but judgment
is at fault when business interests
are sacrificed on tbo altar pf politi
cal ambition. In deciding to sacri
fice ambition upon the altar of busi
ness duty, Mr. Brown has increased
his own honor and added to his
claim upon the confidence and es
teem of his friends.
Georgia needs one good governor}
the agricultural business of the state
needs thousands of good farmers,
such as Mr. Brown has proven him
self to be,
Commissioner Stevens, of the state
department of agriculture, started
out last week to investigate the
wide-spread complaint that the ker
osene oil sold in Georgia was not
affording sufficient light. Eight or
ten years ago the Home Journal ed
itorially contended that the oil test
as applied was of no value to the
people. It guaranteed that the oil
would not explode, but had no ref
erence whatever to the illuminating
qualities of the oil. The conditions
are the same now, and Commission
er Stevens will discover that the test
as now applied is a delusion, and
that a test to determine the illumin
ating quality of the oil is what the
people desire. More light and bet
ter light is the demand.
With a surplus revenue in the
United States treasury amounting
fo $140,000,000, the republican
managers in congress have at last
decided that the war revenue taxes
can be abolished. A bill to that ef
fect has been prepared, and begin
ning with next July there will be a
reduction in the annual revenue tax
list of about $77,000,000. It is es
timated that the income this year
will be about equal to the expenses,
and that at the beginning of next
year there will still be about $140,-
000,000 in the treasury, exclusive of
the reserve fund.
Hon. Boykin Wright assumed the
office of attorney general of Georgia
last Saturday, and Hon. J. M. Ter
rell was free from all offioial obliga
tion, an untrameled candidate for
governor of Georgia. His campaign
headquarters are. at the Kimball
House, Atlanta, Ga., rooms 114 and
116. These rooms were used by
Hon. Steve Olay when he was elect
ed U. S. senator, and by Gov. Cand
ler in the campaign of 1898, and
have been headquarters of the state
democratic executive committee dur
ing two successive campaigns.

To Benefit Farmers.
Hon. E. B. Lewis has introduced
in the national House of Represen
tatives a bill that is intended to be
of great convenience and benefit to
farmers throughout the country.
The measure is to amend the na
tional bank law bo that national
banks will be authorized to loan 60
per cent of their capital and surplus
on real estate security, on the basis
of pne-half of the marketable value
of the real estate, exclusive of all
buildings and improvements.
Under the existing law national
banks oannot lend money on real es
tate at all.
This is certainly an important
measure, and should be enaoted into
law. Real estate is the basis of all
values, and there can be no better
security. The banks will not only
be Bafe in lending money on real es
tate under the provisions of this
measure, but their profits would be
materially increased thereby. Owfl
ora of real estate would certainly
find it easier to secure'the money
they are obliged to borrow.
In this measure, as in all other of
ficial acts, Mr. Lewis seeks to serve
the material interests of his constit
The Hawkinsville Dispatch says,
concerning business affairs of that
oity: “We are informed that two
more large wholesale houses will be
opened up here in time for the fall
business, and that two new steamers
will soon be built to ply the Ocmul-
gee. This begins to sound like bus
iness, and shows that Hawkinsville
is moving right oa to the front.”
