L SERIOUS QUESTION OLVEID IX KENOI.I 11ONN OF TENTER DAT. AFFECTS THE SOUTHERN. Mr. Branch (him* That the Neuthern Kail wnj NjsCcin I* hii Illegal One. The resolution introduced vestcrdav by Mr. M. I. Branch, populist of Columbia, but. which wan credited to Mr. Bush. is of vastly more importance than a casual reading would imply. H, in fact, involves the validity of the Southern Railroad Company and their work of reorganizing the railroads of Georgia and th<- south. The resolution calls the governor’s attention to article 4. section 2, para graph 4, of the constitution, which for bids a corporation from buying shares in a rival corporation or making con tracts looking to lessening or defeating competitors and encouraging monoo »>ly. The last paragraph of the resolution resolves that when ths governor is sat isfied that the above mentioned clause of the constitution is being violated, he shall declare all transactions in viola tion thereof null and void. This is directed toward the Southern Railway in its purchase of the. East Tennessee system some time ago. This system came directly in competition with Richmond and Danville portion of the Southern system, and Mr. Branch claims t.hat it is a plain violation of law. The question was raised at the time, but the officer:, evidently attached no import to it and the plan of reor ganization was carried out. I f the as sembly sustain Mr. Branch it will re sult in breaking up this gigantic rail- monopoly us far as Georgia is con cerned. The resolutions also have a bearing on the Central railroad which the Southern proposes to control through its holdings of stock. If the Southern is allowed to retain the East Tennessee Mr. Branch claims it will be a flagrant cont-mpt. of the law. Altogether the resolutions will stir up things in railroad circles and the outcome will bo watched with interest. N E w’p y Tlll AN IA > I ><; E To Be Known ns West End Lutlge No, 14.

NOMINAIHJ BN THE FIMNT BALLOT. WALSH FOR SHORT TERN. lArniorrnlic Fawns BM J>tti«k AVork.-Tbe Rin; Ruled. Honell Knife* WaKh. The democratic caucus is over and ' ! ooutiary to expectations a nomination ■ effected <>e the first ballot Major A " liar, i received 93 votes. ; a majority of all ballots cast, ami was j 1 thereforedeclared the nomine- of the ' ‘ party. j 1 in- result of the caucus impresses : j more strongly than ever before the , I necessity of a purification of the infa- ' , mons and degrading tactics of the "men | A'ho control. ‘ Uacjn was essentially a rintf candi date and his nomination cleariy shows ; , that when the hiad of the ring was : fraudulently placed in the guberna- ‘ ' torial chair, the other, mem Iters like , I ths oft referred to "Mary s lamb tol- ' lowed their leader. It will be remembered that when j Senator Walsh addressed the legisla tors. he. declared himself une ' qutvocilly on the fioanc al ques- I non as being in favor of a free and un limited coinage of s Her at a ratio of 16 to 1. Mr L. 1. Garrard, of Colum bus. who was also a candidate, declared flatly for free silver coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1. Hon. H. G. Turner has always been in sympathy with the administration iufi -"pretation of the financial piauk of the party platform, and when he addressed the assembly he reiterated his former allegiance to the goldbug wing of the party. But w hat did Bacon do when he. dis cussed the financial question ? Did he commit himself to any position ? Not a bit of it. He had the ring and several demijohns of good mountain dew be hind his candidacy and he knew that he was the leader in the race, But he wanted to conciliate the silver men. so he said that hv was in favor of the free coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1, Then he talked to his goldbug friends and said he was in favor of such coin age if legislative safeguards could be thrown around it so as to maintain a parity of debt paying and purchasing power between the two metals, The question of safeguard was a Chinese puzzle to both wings of the party and they are still working iit it. The silver men claim he is on their side of the fence ; the gold men claim he is on their side while Bacon calmly sits astraddle the fence aud winks slyly at first one aud then the other. To sum the caucus result up in its entirety it was due of the most infa mom,s cases of political wire pulling, trading and douole dealing tnat lias ever been eonsumated in Georgia. It began as The Daily Press stated at the time with the. election of judges and solictors and ended with Bacon's nomination for senator when there are nut one thousand honest democrats in Georgia who will endorse him. As a political trader. Hopper and lob byist, Bacon can give Dick Croker cards and spades and beat him at his own game. His double dealings on the financial question are but an index to tile predominating trait of his nature, whiqh has cropped out on several pre vious occasions. It must indeed be au aggravated case when a nan will forsake his friend for a man who, while not opposed to him on the interpretation of the question uppermost in the minds of the people, will not declare with him. And yet Evan P. Howell goes on record as vot ing for a man who refuses to endorse his financial views unequivocally, in preference to two other candidates who are with him ou the minutest details. The Constitution. of which Mr. Howell is the editor-in- chief, has been yelling for free silver as lustily as a four-months old babe cries for milk when it is hungry. Yet he voted for Bacon ! who qualified his silver ten dencies in such away as to destroy the effect of all he had previously said. 'Walsh, both in his speeches aud through his paper, the Augusta Chron icle. has warmly seconded the free sil ver doctrine as preached through .Mr. Howell's paper. In return «or this, whatdoes he get ? The answer is short, one word will suffice—knifed- The able editor of the so-called ‘‘champion of the people.” goes on rec ord us forsaking his political friend and ally for what only the Lord knows. Howell's election was directly on tho silver question and with the implied understanding that Walsh was his candidate for senator. But polities are uncertain and politicians are wily. The junior senator has probably been taught an unlooked-for but salutary lesson which may stand him in good stead, i. e., don’t buck against the ring —if vou want to commit suicide get a gun. ’ It's just as quick, and the humil iation of friendship broken will not be added to other misery.

King, will go to the jury this afternoon. When court adjourned at !2:45 this afternoon for the dinner recess Solicitor General Charley Hilt was speaking and he will resume his argument this after noon. Yesterday afternoon was taken up with the conclusion of the argument of Mr. Ruehen Arnold, Jr , fcr the de fense. • aptain Ellis followed Mr. Arnold for the state and spoke until adjournment. Captain Ellis' speech was a masterly arraignment of Carr and his associates. The killing he declared was the culmi nation ot a conspiracy of which Carr was the. head and John Carr and Bailey were arch conspirators. When the court convened at 9 o'clock this morning Attorney Reuben Arnold. Sr., closed the argument for the defense with a speech of three hours’ duration. Mr. Arnold went over every bit of the evidence, and contended that the testi mony paoved beyond doubt that '• arr was insane at the time he killed King. Mr. Arnold showed that according to his view of the evidence insanitj* was inherited by Carr, aud while he was rational when cool and calm, yet the least excitement aroused him beyond all control. Mr. Arnold dwelt upon the fact that Carr had said that he was afraid King would kill him. that on this idea he had become crazy, and was in capable of restraining his maniacal de sire to kill King. At 12 o'clock the solicitor general opened the closing argument for the state. Solicitor Hill reviewed the evi dence step by step from his stay at Wimpey's mines in Paulding county down to the day of the killing. The solicitor contended that the defendant was sane enough to boss gangs of men and to obtain employment as a skilled engineer. The solicitor was speaking when the court adjourned for dinner, and he will resume his argument this afternoon. When he concludes, Judge Clark will charge the jury, and a verdict is ex pected this afternoon or tonight. Weather Observer Hunt Here Mr. George E. Hunt, who succeeds Mr. Park Morrill as weather observer at the local bureau, arrived in the city yesterday afternoon and will take up the work of the office today. Mr. Hunt has been in the weather bureau service since 1881, and of late he has been stationed at Omaha, Neb., in charge of the station at that point. Mr. Morrill, who has been in charge of the Atlanta station, leaves Saturday for Washington where he will enter the central office in a high position. In the competitive examination held re cently in Washington between the weather bureau observers. Mr. Morril stood first and consequently gained promotion. Petition for Charter.

This i> the day set apart to elect a senator, and also the election us congressmen. Many democratic senators have evinced a desire to go hume and vote, believing their party is in dirciul need of every stray voter they can corral. Mercer, of the Ninth, offered a neso- Intion that the senate go into the elec tion of d Fnited States senator at s:3u p. m. Tuesday, <>th inst. Mr. Monro, of the Twenty-fourth, moved to amend by inserting 10 a. iu. instead of 8:30 p. m. In support of his resolution Mr. Mercer stated that a number of leaves had been granted for that day, and that they could get back by B:.'w p. m. and have session that night. The object of this resolution was to allow the senators to go home to vote. Mr. Harris, of the Twenty-second, did not know whether congress had named any hour to go into this elec tion since the compilation of the code of 1882, but it had uot up to that time, and he thought it well to inquire into that matter. Mr. Roberts, of the Twentieth, fol lowing up this suggestion, moved to refer the resolution to a special com mittee of three, which was done, and the president appointed Roberts. Har ris of the Twenty-second and Monro on tins committee. « Mr. Craigo wants to institute a dif ferent mode in revising the jury boxes. The present law empowers the judge of the. superior court to appoint com missioners to change this by appoint ing the notaries public and "justice of the peace to revise the jury lists iu their respective militia districts.

The special committee, through Mr. Roberts, submitted their report that they found no legal obstacles in the way of adopting the resolution of Mr. Monro. The report was agreed to, and upon motion of its author it was laid on the table. Mr. Sharpe, populist, of the '“th. wants section 199 of the code enforced which declares that no journalizing, re cording, enrolling or engrossing clerk shall be appointed by the secretary of the senate or the clerk of tho house, until such clerk has been examined by the enrolling committee and certified as competent and qualified to discharge the duties assigned to them.
