Atlanta, July 13— Slowly but surely
the house of representatives is going
on record, through the speeches made
on the floor of the house, as being in
opposition to the lease system for
the care of the convicts of Georgia
and in favor of working all of the
convicts on the country roads or some
of them on farms to support the others
worked on the i*nads.
A vote on these questions, it has
been decided, shall be taken soon,
when it is supposed debate on the
measure, its myriad of amendments
and substitutes will be at an end.
In the meanwhile the joint com
mittee from the house and senate to
investigate the convict lease system
of the state, the prison commission ot
Georgia, its officers, employees, and
the lessees of the convicts will be
organised and the investigation begun,

Senator Peacock, in explaining Lis

Atlanta, July 20. —At present there
are three prominent measures pend
ing on the convict question. The fi w ?t
is the Holder substitute, which pro
vides for the separation of the races
by putting the white convicts at the
state farm, near Mffteclgeville, and
by leasing out the negro convicts for
not over one year at a time, . and
hoping for a solution to the lease
Another is that of Messrs. Candler
and Alexander, of DeKalb, with many
other indorsers, which provides ior
the convicts to be divided; some to

During the pa r t week the senate
passed the Felder resolution calling
for the appointment- cf a joint, commit
tee from the senate and house to in
vestigate the charges made by the pen

commission, and the numerous convict
camps in the state. This question
occupied the attention of the senate
more .than.did any other one issue dur
ing days of the past week. President
Flynt will appoint the senate mem
bers of the committee to aj:t with the
committee appointed by the house.
In addition to the discussion of the
convict question, the upper branch of
the legislature passed the three house j
bills making appropriations to the
State Normal school, at Athens; the
the University of Georgia for the re- j

and to -the Technological school to

The waterway bill, giving certain ;
companies the right of eminent do-j

The two most sensational features ;
of the past week in the senate was
the open charge by Senator
Overstreet that lobbying was being,
carried on, and the attack made on
Andrew Carnegie by Senator Wilkes.
Atlanta, July 21.— -Monday Mr.
Wright, of Floyd, was the first to
speak on the convict bill, and declar

the state to punish and not farm out j
this task to private individuals. He
•declared the Georgia lease system was
no*w nothing but a money-making
“The people, press and pulpit are
against the lease system, I believe,

He asked that the people of Geor

declaring that the‘separation* of tne
races meant the state farm for the
