FRIDAY, JANUARY 6.
A Georgia Idea.
Regularly as the clocks of the
house and s,nate at Washington be
gin to tick for the assembling of
congress some statesman boldly
.challenges the good sense of our for
bears in the fixing of certain dates
for important occurrences. Most in
evidence at this session was a bill
introduced by Representative Leoni
*das Felix Livingston, of Georgia,
veteran as a farmer and as state and
national lawmaker, now rounding
out his fourteenth year in the house.
Mr. Livingston's bill provides for
-*elections in September in stead of No
vember and for the assembling of
congress in the same month. His
argument for the earlier meetings
of congrcss is that when the body as
sembles the first week in December
little or nothing is accomplished be
fore the holidays, which involve an
interrupti6n of nearly two weeks. In
relation to the earlier election the
Georgia statesman seems to think
that too long a period elapses be
.tween the nominating conventions
and the elections. Interest wanes,
and before the first Tuesday after
the first Monday of November the
people have tired of the whole
scheme of election.
The proposal for an earlier elec
tion will not meet with the approval
.of the people at large. ' They would
prefer later conventions. The elec
tion of November originally was due
to the progress of events which
.made that time repe for an expression
of popular opinion at the polls, but
the date has ever since been recog
nized as one which would be most
convenient for all classes of suffrag
ists, and most especially the farmers,
on account of the fall work, even in
e most northerly state-Baltimore
Aepremthe Livingston of Geor
gia is entirely correct'in his idea as to
the utility of some lof the changes sug
gested and embodied in his bill, but
for some reason or other the people
atL large are not desirous of making
the proposed changes, and it requires
no prophet to say the bill will not
go through. It is to be hoped that
some time there will be a body as
sembled in congress capable of
straightening out the tangled affairs
by making the necessary constitu
tional amendments in a way which
will meet the approval o.f all.
The town council, inl an ordinance
passed on Wednesday night, endors
ed the action of the board of health
enforcing compulsory vaccination,
and the work is proceed-ing with dis
patch. The physicians believe that
one more week will see the comple
tion of the work. As was stated in
*the last issue of The Herald and
News, th1e town was divided amor'g
the physicians, and they all report
good progress in their respective dis

Mr. Duncan Retires.
Mr. T. S. Duncan has resigned
from the position of cashier of the
National bank of Newberry on ac
count of his feeble health and in
creasing age. Mr. Duncan has been
cashier of the bank since 1871. and
will be very much missed. He has
been connected with the bank since
its -organization, and richly deserves
the rest which should make pleasant
his declining years.
Death of Mr. J. S. Graves.

H. Graves. pastor of the West End
and Mollohon Methodist churches,
