Is to be seen.
Parties are now interested in secur
ing a plant for an ice factory, and it is
probable that they will push the enter
prise through to success. If the plant
can be obtained at a suitable price it
will be purchased and put in operation
for the summer business.
Ice can be manufactured in Gaines
ville as cheap, or even cheaper than in
Atlanta or other large cities, and this
city has all the territory for shipping
that could be- desired. The people of
Gainesville have agreed to give it sup
port enough to authorize the plant to
be put in, and the only thing now in
the way, apparently, is the purchase of
the plant at a suitable price, and it is
now believed that this can be done.
An ice factory would be a good thing
for the town and The Cracker hopes to
see a plant in operation here in time
for the summer business.
The military festival given by the
“D. P, C’s at the Hudson House lust
Monday evening for the benefit of the
Piedmont Rifles was both unique and
elegant. A good crowd attended and
enjoyed the reception. The girls
served dainty refreshments and made
the occasion one of pleasure and profit
to the rifles. The receipts amounted to
$22.75 which was turned over to the
Rifles. The members of the, company
greatly appreciite the efforts of the
girls in their behalf and extend to them
their most sincere thanks. The com
pany is now striving to get out of debt,
and everything done to help them is
Bought Two Mines.
Mr. W, H. Wharton, who has been
prospecting in this section for several
weeks, has purchased the Calhoun and
Free Jim mines at Dahlonega. The
former was owned by the North
Georgia Agricultural College, and the
latter by local capitalists. Mr. W har
ton is a practical miner of Spokane,
Washington, and has secured valuable
property in these mines.

Who will Run for the Legislature
and County Offices.
There promises to be a very lively
campaign in Hall county this year for
county offices. The candidates are
already, circulating among the people
and feeling of the public pulse. There
have been only two announcements so
far, however, but they are expected to
come in more frequently within the
course of a jrery few weeks.
Among those mentioned for legisla
tive honors are: Messrs. A. R. Smith,
Bob Quillian, W. B. Sloan, J. C. Boone,
E. H Langford and D. H. Jarrett.
Who out of this number will run is
not known, hut it is likely that at
least four out of the six will come in
the contest, and perhaps all of them.
For sheriff it is known that the pres
ent incumbent, Mr. A. J. Mundy, will
be a candidate to succeed himself, and
among the others mentioned for the
office are: Messrs. Bud Smith, Marion
Gilmer and Dr. J. W. Oslin. All of
these, and even more, may be candi
Tile race for clerk of court will be
interesting from the fact that two have
already formally announced and a third
has said he would be in the contest.
Messrs. W. Dave Whelehel and J. T.
Chamblee announced several weeks
ago, and Mr. T. M. Bell will announce
in a short time.
Tax Collector Mel J. Charles will
have no*opposition, so far as is known,
and he will go in by the unanimous
vote of the people. Tax Receiver W.
R. Robertson will also very probably
succeed himself as no one has yet been 1
mentioned to oppose him.
For the offices of treasurer, surveyor
and coroner it is presumed that the
present officers will succeed themselves,
viz: Messrs. J. R. Boone, T. Moreno
and A. B. C. Dorsey, respectively.
The campaign will soon open up, and
it can be safely predicted that it will
Mr. W. B. Sloan.
In this issue appears the announce-
meut of Mr. W. B. Sloan as a candidate
for Representative in the Legislature
from Hall county. He is a young man
and since being admitted to the bar has
been quite successful. He was born
and reared in Hall county, and in 1895
was unanimously elected mayor of
Flowery Branch .which was at that
time his home. Mr. Sloan has resided
in Gaiuesville for three year, and has
many friends here and oyer the county
who will support him.
Entertained by Mrs. Fletcher M.
Johnson Thursday Afternoon.
Mrs. Fletcher M. Johnson entertained
the members of the Altrurian Club
most charmingly on Thursday after
noon at her home on Green street.
The color scheme, yellow, was consis
tently preserved. Everywhere glowed
masses of golden jonquils, and grace
ful palms in yellow jardineres gaye an
added richness to the scene
The feature of the afternoon was a
progressive word game, during which
punch and salted almonds were served.
Afterwards a delightful menu was en
The first prize, a handsome purse,
was won by Mrs. John Hynds, and
Miss Sanders was awarded the conso
lation—a silver-mounted rabbit’s foot.
Mrs. Johnson received the guests in
a dainty gown of rose-colored silk. She
was assisted by Mrs. Frank Keen, who
was becominglv attired in a reception
toilette of black satin, and by Misses
Gaston, Banks, Daniel, Wiljis, Sanders
Mr. and Mrs. Doc Fuller entertained
a few young people several nights ago,
and every one present had a delightful
time. Among those invited were:
Misses Lillie McConnell, Lizette Mc
Connell, Ida Porter, Julia Paimo lr,
Maude Boone and Annie Bailey.
Messrs. George Lathem, Will Henley,
Hayne Palmour, Mark Palmoar, E4vvin
Dozier and Kedar Boone.
The J. E- Murphy Company have
begun a removal sale, and those who

HRS. J. E. LITTLE DEAD.
After a Lingering Illness
Passed away Sunday.
Mr. R. L. Patterson has bought the
Dr. Watkins, property on Washington
street for $2,000. Mr. A. M. Evans
now occupies the house and will remain
thereuntil January 1899. There is a
two story dwelling and about two and
half acres of land in the lot.
Col. Howard Thompson has bsen
righu sick since Tuesday morning anti
has been unable to leave lfis room. He
was improved yesterday afternoon
and will probably be out again soon.
The death of Mrs. J. F. Little early
Sunday morning while not unexpected
was nevertheless a shock to her friends.
She had been sick for months and for
many days liagered between life and
death. Her children were constantly
around her expecting that she might at
any moment pass away. Everything
possible was done that in any way-
might alleviate her sufferings but noth
ing could save her.
Mrs. Little was forty-seven years
old, and was the mother of six chil
dren, Messrs. W. J., E. C., and Ernest
Palmour, and Alice, Erskine and Claud
Little, all of whom with her husband
survive her and live in Gainesville.
The funeral services were held at the
family residence on Green street Sun
day afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. J.
A. Wynne, her pastor, conducting them
impressively. The remains were in--
terred in Alta Vista cemetery.
Telephone Posts Wanted.
We call attention of our country
readers up the Murrayville and Bear
den’s bridge road to Dahlonega and
Porter Springs to an advertisement in
another column calling for contracts to
deliver telephone posts. The line will
require about twelve hundred posts
and the country along the line can sup
ply them without hauling any of them
five miles. Furnishing posts and dig
ging the holes, about 35 to the mile,
will furnish a little work for our farm
ers along* that road, and then there
ought to be about six or eight telephone
offices at the different stores and mining
camps along the line. No country can
afford to be without telephones now.
Delegates to Convention.
The Georgia Baptist Convention
meets in Augusta March 31st. Rev.
J. A. Wynne and Prof. A. W. Van
Hoose are delegates from the First
Baptist church of Gainesville, and will

membered that the convention met

Mr. J. W. Goss of Harmony Grove,

beautiful iron grey which has a record
for moving over the earth. Mr. Goss

should. He was a guest of his kinsman,
Mr. R. D. Mitchell.
