Sam Hose, the negro brute who
committed such a diabolical crime
near Palmetto a few days age, is
still at large.
He is being pursued by hundreds
of determined men, and Wednes
day evening he was reported to be
surrounded in a swamp near Wood
Gov. Candler has offered a re
ward of SSOO for his capture and
delivery to the sheriff of either
Coweta or Fulton county, and this
reward has been augmented by the
Atlanta Constitution, which offers
an additional SSOO, and the fami
ly of the Cranfords, $250, making
a total of $1,250.
If the fiend is captured he will
be burned alive, and the rewards
will never be claimed.
Intense excitement prevails
throughout the state, and in event
Hose is captured thousands of peo
ple will flock to Palmetto to assist
in the ceremonies of wreaking ven
His final escape is regarded as
impossible, and within the next 24
hours he may be in the clutches of
the outraged and incensed citizens.
Washington, April 17. —Attor-
ney Geueral Griggs, accompanied
by Mr. Cooper, his private secre
tary, and Maj. Strong, chief of
the special agentß' division in the
department of justice, left for At
lanta, Ga., today to select a site
for the United States penitentiary
to be located in that city.
Washington, April 17. —French
Ambassador, M. Cam bon, called on
Secretary Hay today and officially
advised him in behalf of Spain
that the Duke d’Arcos had been
chosen as Spanish minister at
Washington. The Ambassador al
so made known that the Spanish
government, through the minister
of foreign affairs, had informed
him that Mr. Bellamy Storer would
be persona grata as United States
minister to Madrid. The secreta
ry and ambassador felicitated each
other on the agreeable diplomatic
relations which would bo soon re
established between the United
States and Spain. The time of
Duke d’Arcos’ arrival here has not
yet been set.
New York, April 17.—A dis
patch to the World from Manila
Major Lawton, at Paite, today
authorized the World’s correspon
dent to make this statement:
“The present prospect is that
100,000 troops will be necessary
to pacify the Philippine islands.”
Gen. Lawton’s expedition has
been ordered to Manila and will
return there immediately. All
the territory he captured will be
evacuated and all the launches
will be restored to their original
owners —that is to say, they will
be given back to the persons from
whom Aguinaldo’s soldier’s took
After giving the opinion that
100,000 men would be required to
subdue these islands, Gen. Law
ton explained the situation to the
World correspondent as follows:
“The difficulties in the way are
those of fighting guerillas in a
tropical country. With my brig
ade, I could force my way from
one end of the island to the other
if I did not have to hold the gar
rison behind would soon eat up
the territory I traversed. But
leaving garrisou behind would
soon eat up the whole force.”
General Lawton regretted ex
ceedingly being compelled to evac
uate the territory he had cap

Why Not A Cotton Factory ?
How many towns in North Geor
gia have as many solid business
men as Lawrenceville, and as little
enterprising spirit? You can’t
find another town in Georgia with
as much money to spend for man
ufacturing enterprises as Law
renceville, to be absolutely none
It is not the least bit exaggera
ting to bay that her citizens could
raise SIOO,OOO on short notice for
a cotton factory, and to do this
every man could sleep at night
while his property would advance
50%. His town’s population would
be increased 1000 in twelve months
time; his town’s merchants would
sell 25 per cent, more for cash
each year. What more could he
ask ? You can’t say this is any
more than facts and figures. We
have slept quietly along,and with
in the past three years Monroe
has grown 1500 in population, has
a cotton factory that pays 8%,
possibly semi-aunually; started
with SIOO,OOO capital and now it
has $200,000. They have orders
six months ahead now. Instead
of a little country town they have
au enterprising city. Lawrence
ville can do the same thing and
more, too. What do we live for ?
Time and tide wait for no man—
not even a woman; and how long
will we sit in this motionless boat?
Can’t some of our financiers sug
gest some method whereby we can
engender this spirit “what they
use at other places ?”

Smallpox has about subsided at
Stone Mountain. There were m

there in six or seven families. In
Redan there have recently been
some new cases developed, and two
deaths have been reported there
from it. The disease has been in
a mild form,although it has “shook
up” some considerably and scared
up their features. When rightly
treated smallpox is not to say a
dangerous disease, not more so
than measles. I have no idea it is
more contagious tbau measles. I

HPIMPI cause they do not know just what the disease is;
I IIHI LLtli they naturally turn themselves over to the doctors,
and are forced to submit to a cruel and dangerous
operation the only treatment which the doctors know for Cancer. The disease
promptly returns, however, and is even more violent and destructive than
before. Cancer is a deadly poison in the blood, and an operation, plaster, or
other external treatment can have no effect whatever upon it. The cure must
come from within —the last vestige of poison must be eradicated.
eMr. Wm Walpole, of Walshtown. S. D., says: “A
little blotch about the sire of a pea came under my left
eye. gradually growing larger, from which shooting pains
at intervals ran in all directions. I became greatly alarmed
