? TBP WORK OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
Tbe newspapers hsve spok-n favorably
of the last legislature, and we
think jasilf *o. We do not remember
to bare seen anything in the debates
oven m<*ntiotiing fuciionil line*, and
all tbe proceedings seem to hare been
conducted in the b?st of feeding and
tebaper. t It is certainly very gratifying
to note ibatlhe day has come again
when legislation can be calmly discassad
and considered, and not con
damned or approved merely o?caa?tj
it may be opposed or approved by
certain men. With this feeing, thereion*,
it ia not surprising that the work
of the General Assemblv*ja?t ended
is not radical and on the whole is
?v - l
very good. Even tbe dispensary did
not arouse bitter partisan anger and '
excitement, and this fact should encoarage
those who desire tbe best interests
of tbe State promoted that tbe
people are now ready and willing to
listen to reason. ? .
* *
r.
One of tbe most noticeable things
reflected in the (proceedings of tbe
legislature is that, whether real or net;
there is a general feeling that the State
is more prosperous now than for a
long time.
if ? *
m <
Catching up the spirit of progress is
the industrial world, the legislature
showed an appreciation of the importance
of advancing, correspondingly
in education. Tne State colleges received
nearly all (bat tbey asked for,
and tbe Hou-e, perhaps quicker than
the conservative Senate to respond to
public sentiment, voted to appropriate
$100,000 to the public schools of the
State. The $100,000 appropriation to
the conaaou public schools wa3 lejected
by tbe Senate, but it should be
'?--- * i
. , stated tnai strong cousin uuuuai
grounds were urged in that bod?
agaiust makiDg the appropriation, and
nothing appears to show tbat that
J|' body wai at all u-ifriendly to the appropriation
for any other reason.
3?^^ * * * ;
The wisdom of the inhibition of the
constitution against local and special
laws appears in ;tbe work of the
i7} , General Assembly ja-.t &.?i?hed. It
used to be that "Swamp Hollow"
4L-- * wanted and got a particular law, and
"Rabbit Hollow" or buzzard's Hole"
or some other little community wanted
, and got another^' .
frr - ^^^he^cTrf^niig the registration
of births, marriages and deaths, if
properly enforced, will prove valuable.
> ; Ifitiswhat we conceive it to be, it
-& , will assist wonderfully in the ezamination
and tracing of titles." As it it
now, these f*ct* ofteu have to be obtained
on?side of records and sometimes
c*n not be obtained at all. It
witl maze it pessiDie 10 ascertain me
heirs at law of a deceased person trom
' publiq, and official record?. This is |
oniv one of the values of the law.
. . .
* - '
Among the acts amending the'
statote law of tbe State is the law requiring
clerks of court to satisfy in
the record a mortgage which has been
foreclosed. As we nnderstand it this
menjly facilitates the work of search
zs; tor liens?on property.

? The General Assembly did ail the
Confederate veterans a?ked of it. The
dovt Pension Act is really the work
of a committee of veterans The appropriation
for a m >ounnent at Cbickamau?a
was made as petitioned by the
p-p Confederate veterans

The separate car bill went through
, It provide? au eqnal fare of three
cetits per mile and ali>ws no 6econdcls&s
car. A.notb?r railroad bill which
ha* become law is Mr. E. B. Rags1da'e'??
bill rrqniring two railroads
passing through any town or city to
make connections, and transfer cars at
one dollar per car.
PCBRTO KICA* TARIFF.
:
"When we read the debate* in Con
fress on the Paerto Ricac Tariff, we
IV feel the truth of the assertion of the
London Spectator that this government
as now constituted is completely
iu the hands of the great financier and
/ trust companies. And we further feei
that when the confederacy went down
the constitution went down with it.
Tha: instrument bag simply been made
Ian elastic instrument to ttretch and
eoitr&ct to suit the poctets of the
millionaire. Equality of law i? not
? recosnizad when equality does not
tnit the interests of the great financiers
and trust companies. Local self?/nrorni?iPnt

"I hobbled into Mr. Blackmon's
drug store one evening," says Wesley
Nelson, ofHamiiton, Ga , "and he
asked.-are- to try Chamberlain's Pain
"Balm for rheumatism with which I
bad suffered for a lonjr time I told
him I had no faith in any medicine as
they all failed. He said: 'Well if
Chamberlain's Pain Balm does not
help you, you need not pay for it.'' I
took a bottle of it home and used it
according to the directions and ia one^
week I was cured, and have not since
been troubled with rheumatism."-;
