The Law Should, be Repealed*
The city council will have to take some notice
of the injustice that is being done the newsboys
of Atlanta. A long time ago an ordinance was
passed prohibiting the boys from crying out
their papers on the streets. Such a law was
not the outcome of metropolitan views, and was
probably given birth by some disgruntled citi
zens of over-sensitive nerves and
delicate ear drum. These persons
must have been cured of their
maladies since the ice cream venders are allow
ed to yell at the top of their voices. On Satur
day night last, between the hours of eight and
ten o’clock, Whitehall street sounded like a bed
The Capitol is not opposed to the ice cream
venders using their lungs to carry on their busi
ness, but it insists on the city council repealing
the law against the newsboys. With this ob
ject in view, the Capitol will present a petition
at the next meeting of the general council.
Mr. Purcell at Outs.
Now the manager of the Atlanta Baseball
Club is mad.
He is setting up a terrific howl.
The cause is because the Capitol of last Sat
urday had the fearlessness and pluck to stand
up and criticise his management openly.
Truth is,Mr. Purcell,the captain and manager,
has been petted and praised by the press, in
cluding very liberal doses from the Capitol,
until he has thought himself above criticism.
But when a man gets that high its high time
for him to step down.
Mr. Purcell is simply the manager of the At
lanta Baseball Club and not of Atlanta.
He is showing very bad taste and very bad
temper to get mad at us because we stated
what .we thought in these two lines:
“The baseball boys are falling out. What
the Atlanta club needs is a competent manager.”
These remarks were simply the outspeaking
of a long-felt opinion of Atlantians on the sub
ject. We are not alone in our opinion; far
from that. In fact we found that nine out of
ten Atlantians are of the same and even worse
Purcell can play good ball. He has played
good ball, and is a valuable member of the club,
but as a manager he is a perfect failure.
When our reporter went to him Saturday, at
the instance of the editor, to get some informa
tion, he received at Mr. Purcell’s hands the most
discourteous and disrespectful treatment possi
With oaths profuse, he “ would not even talk
with The Capitol.”
We sent one of our most gentlemanly report
ers, hence we are certain he could have given
Mr. Purcell no cause for his language or treat
Again the reporter saw him by order,
and hoping that he had recovered from bis
swearing humor and pet of Saturday, sought to
talk with him.
“No, I de not want a— thing to do with The
“It is a rotten concern and I will do all I can
against it.” :
Now, don’t do that, Mr. Purcell.
Please don’t withdraw something that we
never had —your great influence.
As to the rotten part, we suggest that possi
bly he has not struck the right cause.
We state it right here and that most posi
tively that as to an opinion when we have
one on this or any other subject we shall ex
press it and we believe that Mr. Purcell can
find much better business than quarreling with
a paper which has been, and is to-day, bis
avowed friend, and which openly expresses an
opinion on a matter which, if allowed to con
inue, will effectually cripple the team.

Agriculture indicates an improvement in wheat
during April of two points with a general aver
age of condition at 95. There is no marked
change anywhere, but a slight advance is noted
in the Ohio Valley, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee,
the Carolinas, Virginia and Maryland. The
May average last year was 70. The season has
been favorable and crop more advanced than
usual. , The averages in the principal States
are: New York, 96; Pennsylvania, 95; Ohio, 97;
Michigan, 91; Indiana, 98; I'linois, 82, Mis
souri, 101; Kansas, 67. Condition of rye aver
age; barley 97.
Cotton planting has been delayed by the cold
rains on the Atlantic coast and by the over
flows on the Gulf coast. The proportion to be
planted in May averages 20 per cent. In aver
age years the proportion does not exceed 11 or
15 per cent. The stand is necessarily defective
on the wet areas, but replanting is rapidly fill
ing the gaps. The proportions already planted
are as follows: North Carolina, 73; South

Chicago, May 10. —All railways in the city
resumed operations this morning, and are ac
cepting and carrying all freight offered without
limit. The situation, however, is affecting the
freight handlers and is still unsettled, and has
developed unexpected phases. The Baltimore
and Ohio put its men to work this
a. m., conceding them eight hours to the
working day with nine hours pay.
The freight handlers of this road have set been
acting in concert with the other city freight
handlers and gained their victory by their in
dependent negotiations with the company. It
is not known what effect this concession will
have upon other roads.
A committee of the striking freight handlers
of the Chicago and Northwestern road called
upon the officials of that road this morning and
expressed a desire to return to work on the old
basis. The company replied that the men had
been given full notice to return to work, but had
failed to do so. As a consequence the company
had Ls business seriously inter
fered with, and had been at
trouble and expense in procuring new men.
These men fill the working quota of the com
pany, and it had no places to offer men who had
gone out on a strike.

General Gordon’s Annouucemeni.
General John B. Gordon makes the follcTwing
announcement to the people of Georgia :
At Home, DeKalb County, Ga., May 8, 1886.
—To the People of Georgia: After much re
flection I have decided to become a candidate
for nomination by the Democratic party of
Georgia for the office of Governor. This deci
sion has not been reached without sober thought
and full consideration. For many months past
personal and political friends have urged me to
become a candidate. From every section of Jhe
State, and from all classes and former divisions
in the party, these requests have
come. I have hesitated and wait
ed, because I desired to know whether the
wish was general with the people. Os this 1
cannot, longer entertain a doubt. The evidences
which have reached me (particularly in the last
few weeks) of the desire of tbe people, have
profoundly stirred my heart and satisfied me of
my duty. From distant portions of the State
and from my immediate neighbors (some of
whom have known me in most intimate associa
tions from my boyhood up) these solicitations
have come. This movement by the people so
tar as I am able to judge, is absolutely sponta
neous. I have not written one letter upon the
subject, except in answer to those which have
reacheu me; and 1 have solicited the aid of bo
man nor conversed with any one who have not
introduced the subject.
Now that 1 am a candidate, I trust that none
of my fellow-citizens of Georgia will misunder
stand me. From tbe ungenerous, unwarranted
and utterly untruthful criticism which have
heretofore been indulged in by certain parties
in reference to myself, I seek no vindication at
the hands of the people.
If the life that I have led for more than half a
century, before this people among whom I was
born and reared, is not a sufficient answer to my
enemies, who are enemies without cause or ex
cuse, no reply from me would satisfy them. If,
at any time of my life, if in private or public
station, in peace or in war, I have ever deserved
the confidence and esteem of this people, I de
serve the same now as surely and as completely.
I wish, however, to make known in this pub
lic manner, that I shall visit and speak to as
many counties as possible, and am ready on a)l
occasions to confront these enemies before the
Should the people prefer either of the other
able and honorable gentlemen who are candi
dates for tbe office, I shall support their choice i
most cheerfully. If, however, the people should
honor me as their choice, I shall endeavor to .
serve them with an eye single to the best inter
ests of Georgia. J. B. Gordon.
A Proposition to I be Candidate*.
General Gordon has sent the following open
letter to each of the candidates for Governor in
Georgia. It explains itself. We print only tl/>t>
letter that was sent to Major Bacon:
DeKalb County, Ga., May 8, 1886. —Hon. A.
O. Bacon, Macon, Ga.—Dear Sir: Neither of
us ought to desire —and I certainly do not —to
become the candidate of the Democratic party
of Georgia for Governor, except by the will of
the Democratic people of Georgia. I know of
but one way cf ascertaining infallibly that will,
and that is by the Democratic method of placing
votes in the ballot box. Tbe plan of calling to
gether meetings at the court bouse,appointing a
chairman, who, in turn, appoints a com
mittee to select delegates, may or may
not represent the will of the people. Doubtless,
in many cases*, delegates thus selected repre
sent precisely the reverse of the popular will.
I ask, therefore, that you unite with me in a
letter to tbe executive committee, soon to meet,
requesting that committee to recommend pri
mary elections in every county in this State, in
order that the will of the people may be surely
ascertained. Very respectfully yours,
J no. B. Gordon.
THE GREAT EVENT.'
Scett Thornton to Appear at DeGive’i
Opera Monse on Tuesday the
25th of this Month.
Tbe date is fixed.
Tuesday night tbe 25th of this month at De-
Give’s Opera House.
Os course you are going, because everybody
else is going to help out a great Atlanta boy
and at the same time see the best show of this
or any other season.
Remember, Scott Thornton appears in the
fourth act of Richelieu, three acts of Richard
111. and one act of the Fools Revenge. A vari
ed bill —yes, a grand bill —and it will be grandly
given. Ordinary tragedians play one great
character a night. Scott Thornton plays one,
two, three, distinct and difficult in each—great
in all. He will be supported by the prettiest
and most gifted girl in Atlanta —one among ten
thousand born for tbe stage.
She will play Lady Anne to his Richard, Julie
de Mortimer to bis Richelieu, and Fiardelisia to
There now . Who is she? Well,
she is . Wait and Bee. There are i. f-
teen in the strong company—all good.
His Richard is a wonder. The fencing scene
will be the grandest and most terrific since the
days of the Elder Booth.
Swords have thus far
been broken at every rehearsal, and now the
manager is having two steel swords made to
order. Think of it. Os course you are saying
the costumes are all rich and beautiful and are
furnished br Mr. Charles Howard.
Ticket speculators will try to buy up the seats,
but they can’t do it.
The box sheet will be open one week before
the performance, and all shall have a chance.
Mr. Smith Clayton, the manager, has already
refused SBOO for the house. He did not take
hold of Mr. Thornton to sell him out.
By the way, Clayton has never given Atlanta a
poor show. His “ Come-to-My-Bosom-Come ”
convulsed the town, but his “Wild Oscar” cap
tured everybody. His “Dude” was great, but
his last tbe Scott Thornton Combination on the
25th will be the grandest success of all. He
always gives the people something good—and
they don’t forget it.
Oh. of course, you are going.
If you don’t you’ll feel very lonely—because
everybody else will be there to see Bcott
Thornton on the 25th.

THE OUTCAST'S BIRTH.
On the 27th day of March, in the year 1800,
William Powers was born in Limerick, Ireland.
He was of goodly parents, and in tbe year 1832
came to America with bright prospects and an
a«IM» fortune,*He •ettied in Virginis and in
1844 he moved to Georgia and shortly afterwards
began th* use .of intoxicating - liquors *li<- has
aijice drink ssqugbi whisky to float the Great
Itoh-.f HJ’ ’ jtt been educated for Qie bar
and roefe tA ,/ c< nsiderable distinction/ as
a member of the legal fraternity, and is to-day
well acquainted with everything about a bar.
Whiskey soon bad William Powers a beggar
and has kept him so ever since. After he com
menced pleading at bis new bar, bis friends de
serted him, and when the war commenced he
picked up a musket, as he was liable to pick up
anything lying around, and went to the war.
History leaves no record of his life as a soldier,
but as soon as the sanguinary strife
was ended we find him again in
COMPANY WITH A BOTTLE,
and he would be there now if the bottle bodn't
deserted him. Since the war William Powers’
greatest drawbacks have been corks.
For twenty odd yeirstheold mas has lived
in Atlanta, and during all these years he has
spent two-thirds of his time in the city prison
and stockade. There is scarcely a man, woman
or child in Atlanta who does not know the face
at tbe head of this column. This
picture was secured as follows: About five
months ago the old man left Atlanta, and it was
thought he would be seen no more, but on last
Thursday he turned up full and was run into
the station-house. On Friday morning the Re
corder tried him and let him loose for the sake
of “Auld Lang Syne.” Friday night found
“Old Limerick" in the station-house again. His
re-appearance in Atlanta created considerable
street comment, and so The Capitol
laid a plan for this sketch. On
Saturday morning he was inveigled
INTO IVIE’S PHOTOGRAPH OALLBBY
bv money and promises (mostly the latter) and
Mr. Ivie soon had picture of the greatest vaga
bond on record. “Old Lidrerick” took a great
fancy to Mr. Ivie and told him he could take a
dozen pictures if he liked.
Well, Ivie, as usual, made a good picture
from which the above was taken.
The subject of this sketch enjoys the dis
tinction of having had bis name
to appear on the police docket no less
than tour hundred and eighteen times, and bis
total fines (worked out at tbe stockade) amount
It may be asked bow such a character, with
out money or friends, can get whiskey to drink.
That’s easily answered: Whenever he enters a
saloon he pleads to the “ ‘boys’ to set ’em up,”
and the “boys” generally feel charitable and
respond handsomely. If the “boys” frown
down encouraging drunkenness, the saloon
keeper has to set ’em up to get rid
of Limerick for fear he might
DRIVE AWAY CUSTOMERS.
It matters not how or when “Old Limerick"
gets his toddie, just so he gets it.
Whenever be gets drunk he gets »oisy and
disorderly and he is nearly always disorderly.
No sooner does a policeman attempt to lay a
hand on the old customer than be lays himself
down on his back and kicks at the officer until
he is overpowered and carried to tbe station
In the police court he always makes a speech
—a good one—and is listened to patiently by
the Recorder. His remarks are always in ex
tenuation of his offense and a plea of mercy on
account of his old age and gray hairs. The
stockade is always alluded to as the “barricade
of infamy.” Sometimes just before he is
called out of the waiting room for trial, he will
take from his pockets old strings, spools,
broken combs, bits of glass, ribbons,
pens, pencils and other trash, and,
placing them in a pile on the floor,
WILL WALK AROUND
them a number of times and then stop and jerk
bis body all over. This is kept up at times for
His speeches are often possessed of keen wit
ana bis points of law are always well taken. At
his trial on last Friday morning, when tbe Re
corder discharged him he started out of
tbe court-room, but suddenly stopped
and bobbled back. “Judge,” said
“perhaps your kindness and my appreciation of it
may have created a false impression in your
mind and the minds of the people here. I want
to say, sir, emphatically, that I am no idiotic
The Judge smiled and Limerick went out and
About three years ago the city officials began
to discuss plans for getting rid of the
vagabond, and decided to send him
TO A LUNATIC ASYLUM.
So Willi im Powers was carried before Ordi
nary Calhoun on a writ of lunacy. In this
court, as in the recorder’s, he defended himself
>.nd made quite a brilliant effort. However, he
was adjudged insane and sent to Milledgeville.
In six months be was locked up in tbe station
house in Atlant* for being drunk on the streets.
History doesn’t stale bow and when
he left the asylum. He got here
all tbe same, and has continued to worry the
police officers and station house keepers ever

Perhaps some girl, fair and young, was happy
with her head pillowed on that breast. A father
