After a few minutes spent in greet
Lg th-ese gentlemen and others the
thfinders were privileged to enjoy a
rief informal reception in the hand
ome apartments of Col. F. S. Evans.
By that time it bacama apparent that
the party would have to move on im

olunteered to set them some miles
apon their way toward Laurens,'and
for about five miles out he led the
way in his Maxwell runabout, accom
panied by Mr. Joel S. 3ailey. Capt.
bangford's flying Ford -.ok the lead
when Mr. Gardner turned back and
et a pace that over the r;ds tra
versed -was worthy of the best en
leavors of the doughty Brush. It was
:35.o'clock when the start was made
from Greenwood and it took the party
axaetly three hours to cover the 26 1-2
miles to Laurens, the hour of arrival

the Laurens escort set a stiff pace

At supper the Columbia and New

f large importance. Mr. S. E. Boney
resided. After considerable discus
sion covering many details, but which
was principally significant as showing
he intense interest felt by the citi
zens of Laurens in the promotion of
better highways to the capital of the
State, Mr. John K. Aull of The New
bery Herald and News crystallized the
sentiment of the meeting in a resolu

LEGISLATOR GIVES LIE.
Georgia Law-Maker Uses Harsh Lan
guage As to Georgia Min
Atlanta, Ga.. .July T.-The Anti
Prohibitionists in the State Legisla
ture forgot the truce to-day, rolled up
their sleeves, grabbed their war clubs
and sailed into the opposition with
noh bitter invectives that an aged
lerk shook his head and remarked:
"Nothing like that ever happened
in the Legislature in the forty years
\e been attending it.'"
'began when Anderson, of
- -n2 the near
tion of per
cal minister named the Rev. Len G.
Broughton, is quoted in the press as
having said. in a sermon that I was
fighting the near beer bill because I
had bought stock in a Savannah brew
ery after the prohi)ition bill was
assed. and that I was the only man
I the State who had made money out
ol prohibition in Geo-ria. I desire to
say that this preacher ji t. wilful. ma
licious. reckless, malignc nt and vi
cious liar. I fully expected to be as
sailed and villified -%:-hen I obeyd my
constituents' will and opposed the
Alexander bill. But I never even
dreamed that. a mir ster of the Gospel,
a follower of Him -;i .o preached char
ity and taught truth, would stoop to
become a slanderer and a commcn liar.
"In the first place, no Savannah
brewery, nor stock in one has been
sold since prohibition went into effect.
Hence this is another lie of the rev
erend hypocrite. About fifteen years
ago I bought ten shares in a Savan
naI brewery. and paid $100 a share.
I was out of the State when tha pro
hibition bill passed, and when I re
turned and tried to sell my stock, I
could not. It is now worth about $50
or $60 a share, but cannot be sold.
"This Alexander bill is a new pro
hibition bill, and 'we already have
the strongest prohibition bill ever
drafted. If it be not enforced. t'en
it is because the officers are negligent
and the people do not want it en
forced. I 'have never placed as much
as a. straw ip the way of its enforce
ment. But you know you cannot en
force an unpopular law."
Anderson sat down in a breathless
silence, and little Representative J.
A. Slade, slight, dignified and minis
terial looking arose. Slade is from
Muskogee county, and is a. Baptist
minister.the same denomination which
Broughton serves. Every one - ex
pected a bitter retort to Anderson's
outburst. What was the astonish
ment of all, then, when Slade w-ent
even further than Anderson in de
nouncing his fellow clergyman.
"I was astounded and insulted,'' he
said. "to hear the -slander heaped
upon a worthy member of this Legis
lature by a man who professes to be
a minister of the Gospel. I am a Mis
sionary Baptist preacher. I believe
in and practice temperance, but do
not believe in prohibition. In the
name of all good Baptists, however, I
want to reesnt this attack upon Mr.
Anderson by a long-haired, loud
moutled, itinerant preacher, who has
done more harm to the temperance
cause tahan all the brewers and dis
tillers in the world. And th~e really
honest temperance advocates should
realize that unless they curb these
freak extr.emists,they will see the pen
dulum swing to the other extreme.''
Speaker Holden did not let any one
else get the floor, declining to recog
niz several excitable members, and
calmly forcing a resumption of t,he
onsideration of the tax bill.
Dr. Broughton Issues Rejoinder.
Atlanta, Ga., July 27.-Dr. Brought
on to-night gave out the following
statement in regard to the scathing
denunciation he received at the hands
of Repnesentative Anderson:
"I am glad, at least, if I have done
nothing else than force Mr. Anderson
to acknosvledge in the House of Rep
resentatives, where he is posing as
the c:hampion against legislation for
the prevention of the near beer evil,
that he is a stockholder in a brewery,
one, at least. in Savannah, that is
mafacturing more near beer than
any other in the State

point I made against his right to sit.
in judgment upon such legislation,
whether he has recently bought stock
or not. It is a fact that he owns the
stok and that lines up with the whis
