A recent number of the Griffin Sun
contained a complimentary and very
just eulogium upon Mr. M. M. Fol
som, the Macon correspondent of the
Atlanta Constitution. There are few
writers in this state who have, in so
short a time, achieved so enviable a
reputation as a writer for the press,
as the modest, unpretentious gentle
man mentioned above. We have fre
quently felt both surprise and admi
ration as we noted in the Constitution
the amount and quality of the con
tributions to its columns furnished,
day by day, by this versatile and ad
KIT J. WARREN.
We noticed rather by accident the
other day on the editorial page of our
sprightly contemporary, the “Macon
Daily News,” the words, “Kit J. War
ren, editor.” The announcement was
news to us as well as a pleasant sur
prise. A glance through the editorial
columns showed plainly “the tracks
made by this racy and versatile wri
ter, wliere he had passed along in the
discharge of his editorial duties. We,
the local editor, have not the pleasure
of a personal acquaintance with this
genial gentleman and entertaining
writer, but he will doubtless permit
us to offer him the hand of cordial
welcome and sincere good wishes on
his taking his present desirable posi
tion on the jiress of this section of our

From Our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, Oct. 26, 1886.
There is much speculation just now
in regard to the complexion of the
Fiftieth Congress. There is great di
versity of opinion, of course, as to
which party will have a majority. As
Hon. S. S. Cox said: “there will be
many holes in the House. The places
of many prominent men will be filled
by new ones.” But Senator Kenna
thinks the Democrats will have at
least twenty-five majority. They
have such a large majority in the
present House that it is not believed
it can be overcome, unless apathy
shall prevail to a much greater ex
tent in the Democratic than in the
The boldest declaration of the pres
ent campaign was made by Blaine in
a recent speech in Lewistown,
Maine, which was in effect that
the Republicans would repeal the
Civil Service law and at once turn out
every Democrat in the service of the
Government. Civil Service Commis
sioner Oberly, taking Blaine to task,
said that having endeavored to make
himself acceptable to the temperance
people, the laboring men and every
shade of religious opinion; he now
seeks to commend himself to that por
tion of the Democracy opposed to the
Civil Service system in order to make
his “calling and election sure.” In
the campaign of 1884 he promised to
purify politics by introducing the
very system which he now deprecates
so strongly, if the people would honor
him with their votes. Mr. Oberly re
marked that it was the boldest state-

On Tuesday last, Mr. Samuel E.
Whitaker received a letter from El
Paso Texas, and two numbers of the
“Evening Tribune” of that city, con
veying the sad intelligence of the sui
cide of Lou Wiggins (familiarly so
called) who was a native of this coun
ty and has left many relatives and
friends in this section. His grand
father was Rev. James Wiggins, who
died in Florida several years since,
and his father, was George Wiggins,
who died while a prisoner of war at
Rock Island, 111., during the great
war betw r een the States. His mother
was, before her marriage, Miss Corde
lia Prosser, the daughter of the late
John Prosser and Mrs. Polly Prosser
of this county.
Some eight or ten years ago young
Wiggins emigrated to Texas, and four
or five years since his mother follow
ed him to that distant State. She
enjoyed the happiness of being re
united to her beloved son however
but for a short time, for she departed
this life some time during the past
year. The son lived in El Paso, which
is separated from the Mexican city of
Paso del Norte, only by the Rio
Grande river, that stream being the
boundary line between Texas and
Mexico. There he seems to have
made a most favorable impression
upon the people, for the two num
bers of the Evening Tribune, men
tioned above, devotes much space and
attention to the sad event of his un
timely death, and says that “he had
many friends among the best people
of the town,” that “he was a man
whom every body liked” and that his
“death cast a shadow over the entire
community where he had lived so
long.” The suicide occurred at the
town of Kingston, in New Mexico,
some 130 miles North-west of El Paso,
where the deceased had engaged in a
new mining enterprise, having sever
al of the best citizens of the latter
place as his partners; and it was be
lieved that the prospects of the ven
ture were fairly good and promising.
There seemed to be no apparent rea
son for the desperate act of the young
man and his friends were hard to per
suade for some time that he had tak
en his own life. A letter however,
written by himself placed the matter
beyond doubt, without giving any
reason for the act. A well written
letter from Mr. Howell Brown a
partner in the mining enterprise—
to Mr. Whitaker, gives a clear ac
count of the business aspects of their
undertaking but throws no light
upon the cause of the self destruction
of his partner. Although the deceas
ed has lived for a number of years
far away from here, the news of the
sad tragedy in which he was the prin
cipal actor, will carry sorrow' to many
hearts in this region, and the fact
that very many of them are readers
of this paper, has induced us to de
vote so much space to such particulars
of it as we have been able to obtain.

showed his swivel-like proclivities.
A gentleman from New York, a
leader of the Democratic party in
that city, who was here during the
week, was speaking of the President’s
natural anxiety in regard to the suc
cess of the party in New Y~ork this
fall. He has been on trial eighteen
months, and he thinks the people of
the State which put him where he is
will express their opinion of the ad
ministration and its methods at the
polls this fall. He believes they are
with him, but he does not know it
certainly, and that renders him anx
ious as to the result. “Yes,” continu
ed, he “Cleveland’s present term is ex
perimental. But if the Democrats
carry the next general election they
are in for twenty-five years of power,
and nothing can stop them.”
The journal of the House of Repre

roic remedy is needed for the bloated
Congressional record, and it has been
suggested that Congress adopt a rule
that no man shall make a speech from
manuscript. That would take out
the worst trash which now seeks a
harbor within the official chronicles.

Again the door of Heaven opened
To receive an angel bright.
Who has left this world of suffering
To wear a crown and robe of white.
For many days he bore with patience,
Oh! such suffering, none can tell,
Except the God of love and mercy
Who doetli for us all things well.
None \vas ever nursed so faithful,
Nothing was then lefc undone,
That could lull the pain and suffering
Of our darling little one.
All our nursing, watching. ’

For some wise and unknown purpose.
He was taken from our care.
How we are longing hut to see him
Standing on the other shore,
Witn his little bright eyes watching
For his loved ones crossing o’er.
’Tis true we miss the little angel.
What a sweet relief and rest.,
When God called his little spirit
To be numbered with the blest.
For the pain he bore with patience,
Was more than m irtal tongue can tell.
We should not grieve tor such 1 blessing,
For we know that all was well.
Fareweil, darling, soon we’ll meet thee
When the battle of life is o’er.
Then in Heiven we’ll be united,
There to meet and part no more.
