There is no abatement in the interest man
ifested by the people for free and fair elections,
as evidenced by the large attendance at the
meetings of the Citizens’ Club, and it is to be
hoped that this will be characteristic of the
chib until after the first election under the
amended laws, which the organization stands
pledged to sustain. The next meeting of the
Citizens’ Club will be held at Turner hall on
Monday evening, and every member who can
possibly attend should make it a point to be

Under the strong tegis of the Citizens' Club
this reform can be effected. Let its members
neglect no meetings. They are the camping
grounds on the march forward to scatter the
enemy’s lines. Every well-attended meeting
is a post taken from the enemy. The last
meeting was one that sent consternation
into the enemy's camp, stampeded it and di
vided its counsels. Let next Monday night’s
rally of the club be as enthusiastic as that of
two weeks ago.

RESENT THE SLANDER.
Il there is any branch of the popular gov
ernment in Georgia that shbnld be secure from
the malignant shafts of slander, it is the judi
ciary. Heretofore the breath of suspicion has
not attached to it. It has been lifted
above the discord of party strife; its skirts
« have not been draggled in the stagnated pool
ot politics; its ermine has been unsullied by
the taint of partisan pollution.
How humiliating it is that a reflection
against the dignity of the judiciary of
Georgia should come from the lips of a
Georgian who is asking Georgians to elevate
him to the gubernatorial chair. The grat
uitous slander that has gone forth outside
of the state’as well as permeated every
part of Georgia deserves not only imme
diate censure and protest, but ultimate and
vigorous rebuke. No man who would
asperse the high character and honor of the
bench deserves the confidence, much less
the moral support of Georgians. Nothing
but the most profound contempt can e
felt for a man who will, in the hope that he
may gain votes, attack the very bulwark < f
the state’s honor and the people’s shield.

The movement to erect a building at At

to accommodate all the Smiths, big and little,
old and young, there will be no room within
the corporate limits. It will have to be

The judiciary ot Georgia is the peer of that

It was the distinguishing characteristics of a .
thriving and populous city in a rich province,
of which it was the capital, not only to be
very proud of its commercial and industrial
progress, a most commendable trait indeed,
but whal is less commendable its vanity out

but their own greatness, and if they essayed

I and come up to the full measure of greatness
1 by comparison with the ponderous statesmen
j and gigantic intellects of the capital.
Now the common people of the province
i were much pleased with the wealth and prog
ress of the chief city and capital, and for
1 awhile paid little haed to the extravagant
boastings of its leading men, recognizing that
a great deal of booming was necessary to keep
it in advance of the more conservative and
■ solid cities of the province, but when it came
I to permitting a tew boasters to parcel out all
the high stations to themselves the people de
, tided that it was a monotonous programpie
and would have to be slightly modified, ahd
, I shall tell you how it came about, that the
slate was broken, to use a latter-day phrase.
, The heavy-weight politicians of the capital
had selected one of their number to be nom
’ inated by the province, and although the
leading papers of the capital, the Morning
Boaster and the Evening Bazoo, were at
• sword's points, they both came to the sup
port of the capital city candidate, and the
boom they gave him and the numerous,
counties of the province they asserted he
would carry with a wild rush, was calcu
lated to have dissuaded an outsider from at
tempting to stem the tide, but the people of the
prov'nee paid little heed to the launching of
the boom, because, like so many other booms
characteristic of the citv, they could see it
was inflated to the bursting point, and that
as soon as it got outside of the atmosphere of
tlie place it would explode into fragments so
small that there wouldn't be even a little
boomlet left of it.
And this proved to be the fate of the boom.
Meantime the Morning ■ Boaster began to
question the influence of the Evening Bazoo
in promoting the boom, while the Bazoo on
the other hand kept prodding the Boaster for
a lack of sincerity and for permitting the peo
ple's caiuiatakt to have an occasional decent
To add to tha perturbation of the capital
ring, its candidate had been induced to meet
the people’s candidate in joint debate, and
the result had not been at all satisfactory to
the editor of the Morning Boaster who, to the
intense disgust of the Evening Bazoo, had
charge of the canvass for the capital candidate.
As a result the latter was withdrawn from
his unpleasant position and permitted to go
pretty much wherever he pleased.
This did not mend matters, however, for
once given an opportunity to make speeches
where the people's candidate was not pres
ent to correct him, he fell into the old capi
tal habit of making a great many wild
charges that he couldn't substantiate and of
saying a great many things which he bad
better left unsaid, for jvhile such things
didn’t count for much at the capital the
people of the province had still clung to
the good old way of making no charges
reflecting upon the integrity and honor of
their public servants that was not suscept
ible of proof, and they had little patience
with those who departed from the rule.
But the capital candidate who borrowed
this recklessness of speech naturally enough
' from his environment was not conscious of
having done more than to be
loyal to the prevailing custom of
his city until in one of his pyrotechnic
flights of fancy he announced that the judi
ciary of the province had conspired with
a political ring to elect the people’s candidate.
This was the last straw that broke the
camel’s back, and so angered the people of
the province that they lost all patience, and
many who were inclined before that time to
have voted for tne capital candidate because
he had served creditably in the wars for the
province, were provoked and abandoned
him, for they were very proud of their judi
ciary, as the judges of the province kept
aloof from political gatherings and up to
that time no campaign had been so prosti
tuted as to reflect upon the judiciary of the
province which was sans pere sans reproche.
I need not tell you, children, what was the
result, for you must have anticipated it.
The people’s candidate was overwhelmingly
elected and he had hardly taken his seat at
: the capitol before the Morning Boaster and
the Evening Bazoo, which had up to this time
been charging each other with the cause of
t ie defeat of their candidate, both came out
the day after the inauguration and claimed
the new governor as a citizen of the capital
and one of their elect. But as the people of
the province were quite satisfied with the re
sult they could only smile at this new proof
that the capital citv had away of claiming
everything, and claiming it with confidence.

CHATHAM’S DISGRACE. T
