10TAUQUA TO BE HELD JULY 7th TO 17th.
of. A. W. Van Hoose, Platform' Manager,
and Chairman Advertising Committee.
sasurer’s Books now Open for Collection of lO per cent, of Stock.
-Chautauqua to be Liberally Advertised, and Best Talent
will be Engaged.—Season Tickets to be put on
To Select an Orator.
The Daughters of the Confederacy
will meet next Friday and select an
orator for Memorial day. A program
will also be made out at that time for
the exercises. The Confederate Veter
ans and Sons of Veterans will unite
with the ladies m the celebration.
[he Hoard of Directors of the Chautauqua met in the parlors of the Arling-
Ihesday afternoon to discuss matters pertaining to the movement. Prof.
Van Hoose was put in charge of the platform work and will make con-
for tlie different entertainments. He is now in correspondence -with
a bureaus, lecturers, musical organizations, etc., and will begin at once
[ging talent for the Chautauqua. Messrs. E. E. Kimbrough,C. S. Webb and A.
irdy have been appointed an advertising committee of the association, with
Yanlioose as chairman. This committee will begin at once to get out adver-
' matter,and present to the public the features of entertainment to be afford-
dhe Chautauqua. The entire country, including every town, within a radius
|ty miles of Gainesville will be flooded with posters and other advertising
er, and the newspapers will be liberally used by the committee. It is the
pion of the directors of the Chautauqua to specially attract the people of
section of Northeast Georgia, that they may come and see what advantages
|ffered them at the series of entertainments to be given, and more deeply
[est them in the movement and in intellectual development.
fhe books of the Treasurer of the association are now open for the
jttion of ten percent of the stock, and each stockholder is requested to
w Treasurer T. S. Campbell and pay this amount into his hands. Money
t»e needed to pay for the advertising that is to be done in the immediate
re. and to pay other expenses that will be coming in from time to time
the movement is under headway.
lie Hoard of Directors have decided to hold a session of tec days beginning
May July the 7th and ending Sunday July 17th. The Chautauqua will
-id in the auditorium, and it is the present intention to hold but two
ms a day, morning and evening. The admission price has not yet been
|n a few days season tickets will be put on sale. It has been suggested,
wisely it seems, that every merchant and business man take these tickets
Isell xhem, or offer them as a premium on a bill of goods—the amount of
)dl to be determined by the person selling'them. By this method trade
P be induced to come their way, and at the same time they would be
| n g the Chautauqua and interesting others in it who might not otherwise
pacted. _ *
pis the intention of the directors to place these tickets on sale in all the
funding towns. Flowery Branch has already led the movement, a merchant
it enterprising little city haying written Prof. Van Hoose this week to :
him one hundred tickets at once. This is evincing the right spirit and
| s that the people are becoming enthused over the movement.
mon g those lecturers who will probably be secured are: Governor Bob
p. of Tennessee; Rev. T.*DeWitf Talmage, of Washington: Rev. Thomas
p of New York; Dr. J. L. M. Curry, and others. An impersonater and
ftainer of national reputation is Byron W. King, of Pennsylvania, and an
[ *611 be made to get him. Tlie musical attractions will be very great and
[ features of the Chautauqua superb. A cantata, operata or some like
Rinment by local talent will probably be given. All in all the pro-
pe will be an excellent one, and great crowds will be attracted and enter-
be Gainesville chautauqua will be a grand success!
The Saunders Case.
No action was- taken on the applica
tion of pardon for L. L. Sanders by the
Prison Commission Wednesday as only
one of the three commissioners was
present. An effort was made to get a
stay of tlie order issued turning Saun
ders over to the penitentiary authori
ties, as it was alleged he would go
totally blind if he was put in prison,
but this has not yet been allowed.

The Chamberlain - Johnson - Dubose
Co. of Atlanta, is one of the best known
firms in the South. Their customers
come from all over the country and
their trade is enormous. To the read
ers of The Cracker they offer induce
ment and we urge every one to read
their advertisement carefully and con
sider what they have to say. Mail or
ders will be given prompt attention
and when the people of Gainesville or
vicinity are in Atlanta they would do
well to stop and see what they offer.

have kindly tendered the auditorium

this occasion. The members of the

within the reach of all. It is not known
which one of his lectures Col. Ham will

be disappointed. The Odd Fellow r s
hope to have a large crowd out upon

Miss May Butts Dead
Miss May Butts, daughter of Rov
J. W. Butts died at the home of her
father at Fountain Inn, S. C., last Mon
day of pneumonia. She was well
known and greatly admired in Gaines
ville, having made this her home with
her parents several years ago. The
news of her death reached the city
Wednesday and caused much sadness
among her former friends.
The County Board of Education
The Count}^ Board of Education will
meet in Gainesville Tuesday April 54h
in the office of Commissioner T. H
Robertson at the court house. The
meeting will be an important one and
many matters will come up for consid
eration. The board will be re-organ
ized and the three new members elect
ed by tho last grand jury will be in
stalled. Census enumerators will also
be appointed, and they will begin im
mediately the work of taking a census

They Are Both Gone.
Mrs. Eberhart, mother of John Eber-
harfc, who was recently lined $25 and
costs by Mayor Gaston for running a
blind tiger, has succeeded Tn getting
herself in more serious trouble than
ever. John was unable to pay his fine
and was working out his sentence on
the streets. Monday morning Mrs. Eb
erhart drove by where he was working
and jerking him into the buggy drove
off rapidly toward the country. Mrs.
Eberhart was fined $125 by Judge Kim-
sey at the January term of Hall Supe
rior eourt for running a blind 'tiger
but he told her he would remit $100 of
her fine if she would refrain from sell
ing whiskey. This she promised to
do. Judge Kimsey was here Monday
and when he heard of Mrs. Eberharts’
escapade, he immediately ordered her
arrested and put in jail. An officer
was sent out for her but she and her
son escaped, and have not yet Been
captured. Perhaps the city and county
will get rid of two very objectionable
characters if they will only stay away.
Gone to Homer.

Col. J. N. Dorsey, Messrs. J. M. Oliver,

others. It is expected that the largest
crowd ever gathered in Rome will be
on hand to hear the distinguished
statesman from Hall make the opening
speech of his campaign.
