Hon. James M. Smith’s Letter.
We give space elsewhere to a let
ter from the above-named gentle
He does not deny that Dr. Willis
Westmoreland reported him for mis
treatment of conviota, and published
the details of the charges. lie sim
ply says that Dr. Westmoreland was
of unsound mind at the time. This
is news to us. Wo remember the
controversy between Dr. Westmore
land and Mr. Smith very well, and
we would never have suspected from
the manner in which Dr. Westmore
land handled Mr. Smith that a luna
tic was bossing the job.
The doctor was at that time Phy
sic! in of the Penitentiary of Geor
gia, and he made the charges against
Mr. Smith officially. Wo remember
that Mr. Smith tried to prove that
Dr. Westmoreland was drunk while
making the examination of the camps,
but we thought the proof of the
charge entiiely insufficient.
As to Bill Sturgis, our statement
is equally true. Mr. Smith admits
he belonged to the Company which
vias fined *2,500 for whipping this
• to death;
Wo repeat the charge that Bill
Sturgis was murdered by the con
vict boss. Hon. Hoke Smith, in the
trial before Governor Gordon, made
the accusation in these very words :
“I charge the convict company
with the murder of Bill Sturgis.”
Governor Gordon made a judg
ment against the company and sen
tenced it 82,600.
Now how it is that Mr. Smith can
ssy there is not a word of truth in
our article we cannot imagine.
The ex-parte finding of a jury in
Johnson County, whore it does not
appear that anybody represented the
State, or the victim, is not worth a
moment’s consideration by the side
of a formal investigation before the
Governor of the State—both parties
to the case being present, and repre
sented by competent counsel.
Governor Gordon made *up bis
judgment after a full hearing and
the Convict lessees were glad to let
the matter drop by paying the fine of
Iu imposing this fine Governor
Gordon punished the criminals—but
the victim could not be brought
back to life.
The punishment of the Company
whose agents had whipped poor Bill
Sturgis to death did not bring the
dead husband back to his wife, did
not restore the dead father to his
What we are striving to do is to
abolish a system where such fearful
abuse of power is possible.
We do not care to waste any words
with Mr. Smith about the cost of his
convicts. From his own statement
anyone can see that at any time
when the state has 2,500 convicts the
amount paid to the state for them is
even less than we said.
No Relief From the Old Parties.

It is not at all improbable that the
break down in prices consequent upon
the great cotton crops of three and
four years ago was a blessing in dis

only ten years ago a good or fair price.

any time since 1847, do they believe
that with the cotton season opening
at 5} cents, and the probability that
it will go below 5 cents before the
end of the season, the “condition of
the farmers is greatly improved ?’’
Do they believe that a party whose

Before the war cotton sometimes
was as low as it is now, and the
South was prosperous. But then
the expenses of the national govern
ment, which had to be raised by tax
ing the people, were less the 860,-
000,000, whereas now they have in
creased to $500,000,000 annually.
Before the war the national
bonded indebtedness was only about
850,000,000, with practically no
other debts, whereas now the fed
eral government bus an interest bear
ing debt of 81,600,000,000, and the
state, municipal, railroad and other
bonds swell the aggregate to about
85,000,000,000, besides the private
mortgage indebtedness. Is it any
wonder that with all this extra load
to carry, the South dannot prosper
with cotton down to five cents, as she
did before the war with the staple
equally as low ?
In the years immediately succeed
ing the war our section was prosper
ous. Notwithstanding the fact that
the country was exhausted, her fields
devastated, her cities in ruins, her
labor system destroyed; with noth
ing but agriculture to look to for re
trieving its losses, the South,
Phtrnix-liko, rose from her ashes, and
astounded the world by her recuper
ative powers. Rapidly she regained
alllhe had lost and added to her
wealth. There was employment for
all at remunerative wages, and the
people were contented and prosper
From the wreck and ruin of the
war ths people were able to arise,
because there was a sufficient volume
W hen the war closed the people

Our population was about 35,000,000.
giving a per capita circulation of over
850 of greenbacks alone.
The bulk of this money has been
destroyed in obedience to the de.
mand of the money power, and to
add to this infamy, silver has been
demonetized and under the single
gold standard all debts have doubled
If all debts were repudiated our
section might again be prosperous
even with cotton selling at the prices
prevailing before the war. But this
would be a measure of national dis
honor which cannot be entertained.
Then the only other way by which
wo can have a return of '‘better
times” is a return to bimetalism and
an increase in our money circulation.
To both of these the populists are
pledged. To both the democrats are

Two years ago the need of going
into a new party was not so apparent
as it is now. Then the symptoms of
financial distress had not become so
acute as they are now. Then the
old party, with some degree of
plausibility, urged that it had not
been given a chance to demonstrate
what it would do for the people. It
has had that chance, and instead of
giving relief the effect of its legisla

of cotton and the increasing price

An enlightened public sentiment
demands a fair and honest election.
The action of Hon. Marion Harris,
and the words of Hon. John Temple
Graves, arc significant. They voice
the sentiment of the honest demo
crats who are patriots more than
they are partisans; who regard the
honor and fair fame of their state as
of more valne than the success of
any political party.
A fair and honest election will
place Georgia foremost in the eyes
of all desirable home-seekers and
investors; it will prevent unhappy
dissensions and prevent all bitterness
among our people; it will be laying
the cornerstone of a prosperity
which comes first and in greatest
measure to a progressive people.
Let tomorrow’s contest be tin
tainted by any unworthy actions.
Let there be no just cause for com
plaint of unfairness on either side,
and no matter which party shall
triumph, the setting sun will go

in the history of our state.

More than anything which has
transpired in the capital city did the
meeting demonstrate the losing bold
which democracy has upon the voters
of Georgia. The test of the hand
primary too plainly showed the drift
of public sentiment, and justified
the speaker’s words that every demo
cratic speaker, every editorial in the
democratic press was but taking a
part in the funeral obsequies of the
dear old party.

charged against my camp by Dr. Willis
Westmoreland Governor McDaniel
I dismissed Dr. Westmoreland'* charges,
I without hesitation. I have in my pos
session testimony from Dr. Willis
Westmoreland, in which he admits, he
did me a great wrong, that my camp
was managed us well, if not better,
than any camp in the state. I forgave
the old man liecause I knew he was
not responsible. Now as to Hill
Sturgis I have this to say;
Bill Sturgis was sent from jail to
the camp nominally under my control,
which was located near Wrightsville,
in Johnson county. Hill Sturgis was
never whipped while in camp. A jury
of competent and impartial men of the
vicinity of Wrightsville, investigated
carefully, closely and .conscientiously
the cause of the death ot Bill Sturgis.
Tlio verdict was that his death was
caused from heart disease. The jury
in their investigations were assisted
by three competent physicians of the
vicinity. 1 never saw any of the jury
or any of the doctors who made the
investigation. I never knew anything
about the circumstances until some
time after his death occurred. The
jury and the physicians, who investi
gated the cause of the death of Bill
Sturgis, could not have been influenced
by any partiality because we were
strangers to each other, and no rela
tions of anj- kind existed between us.
1 am bound to believe this jury and
those physicians who made this inves
tigation, told the truth. 1 had no more
to do with the death of Bill Sturgis
than you did; lam no more responsi
ble for it than you are.
1 had nothing whatever to do with
the management of any camp or camps
which were required to pay tines. Take
particular notice of this assertion: No
charge of any kind, made by anybody,
at any time since 1 have been working
convicts has ever been sustained or
found to be true. On the contrary, all
such charges were, at the time they
were made, shown to be false and ab
solutely without foundation. The con
victs which have been under my con
trol for the past fourteen or fifteen
years, have been divided generally into
from one to three squads They' have
been worked in many different coun
ties in Georgia, building railroads,
making brick, working at saw-mills,
farming, ete. Under the law each
camp, in whateve ver county it may have
been located, was Carefully inspected
twice a year by the grand jury of the
county where the camp was situated.
Each cainp has been visited and in
spected at least once a year by a legis
lative committee. Each camp has been
visited and carefully inspected by the.
assistant keeper of the penitentiary at
least once every month. Each camp
has also been visited and inspected by
the physician of the penitentiary, ap
pointed by the governor, once every
two months. Each camp has also been
visited and inspected from once to
twice a year by the principal
keeper of the penitentiary. It will
thus be seen that during the fifteen
years in which I have been working
convicts, that these convicts have
been inspected and carefully looked
after by the grand juries of from
30 to 50 different counties, by legis
lative committees from all over
Georgia, and by the penitentiary offi
cials. In the aggregate the inspections
made at different times of the convicts
under my charge, by the various grand
juries, the penitentiary officials and
legislative committees would amount to
more than 200. Not a single report out
of these 200 inspections and visits has
been unfavorable. Every one of these
reports have i niformly stated that the
convicts under my charge, were well
fed. well clothed, humanelv treated
and worked in rtas >n. The death rate
of the convicts worked under my
charge has been us small, if not smaller,
than aliy other camp in the state.
You make a wrong statement when
you say the lessees only pay the state
eleven dollars per head per year for
the convicts. The facts in the case are
the lessees pay the state 825,000 per
year for all the couvicts. The lessees
send to the jails for all the convicts
and bring them to the camp
at their own expense. The lessees dis
charge all the convicts at their own ex
pense. The lessees take care of all the
blind, lame, halt, the sick, the old and
the deerepid convicts at their own ex
pense. All of this is done in pursuance
of a contract which the lessees have
with the state. In point of fact, the
lesses pay to the state, and for the
state at least 150 per capita per annum.
In addition they feed, clothe, guard,
boss, furnish medical attention, and
pay S2OO for each escape. On an aver
age each convict costs the lessee per
year from |l5O to SSOO.
Y'all are a man of too much intelli
gence not to be willing to stand cor
rected. Ido not wish for you to mis
lead the populist people of this state
by such random charges. Many of the
populist people are my best friends

Geo. H. Holliday for City Comptroller.
The announcement of Mr. Geo. H.
Holliday's name-as a candidate for the
office of City Comptroller seems to have
met the hearty approval of the tax
payers from all parts of the city. While
the people have no objections to the
present Comptroller, yet they think it a
bad policy to continue any one in office
for twenty years—and if present indi
cations count for anything, Mr. Holli
day will be elected by a handsome
majority. Tax Payer.

to any address in the United States
four months for two dollars.
Is It Right ?
The present comptroller has held the
office for 20 yeai-s. Is this right ? If it
is wise to continue one man in office for
2<> years, whv not continue the mayor
all other officers as long? The tax
payers of Atlanta are opposed to this
long tenure of office, and they are
going to put a new man in this time,
and Geo. IL Hol'iday is his name.
