?EOPLE SHOULD THINK.
The Senate of the State of
Georgia has passed a Prohibi
tion bill, and in all probability
the House will concur. Gover
nor Hoke Smith who .owns the
hotel in Atlanta with the ;gal
in the fountain" will not be so
impolitic as to veto the measure.
In the State of Georgia there are
a large number of counties, and
over two-thirds of these are al
ready dry, but in the counties
where the cities of Savannah,
Atlanta and Augusta are located,
liquor is legally sold: in our
judgment, as long as the United
States permits liquor to be ship
ped into States that have pro
hibitory laws, the enactment of
general State prohibition laws
are farcical in such cities as are
named. It is our belief that pro
hibition is an impossibility in a
cosmopolitan -city, while the
federal government has its pres
ert inter-state laws, and unless
Congress can be prevailed upon
to give the States the power to
keep out liquor, then from a
practical standpoint local option
is the best method of handling
the liquor question.
There will be an effort made
in the next session of our Gen
eral Assembly to enact a prohi
bition law, and it would not sur
prise us if the effort succeeded,
not that a majority in the legis
lature believe a prohibition law
can be enforcedbut the theory of
prohibition is popular, and in
rural communities it is a good
vote-getter, then there is an ele
ment in the legislature who will
vote for prohibition that have
been the strongest kind of dis
pensary advocates, as long as
the institution was managed by
the politicians, but just as soon
as these political microbes were
knocked off from the public teat,
and there was no udder to sup
ply graft, they refrmed and
joined with a "dog-mn-the
manger-spirit," those who re
-gardless of practical results
are sincerely wanting to elim
inate from our~ Statute books
the laws which permits the sale
of liquor in any form. We have
a great respect for these good
people, and if we could feel in
-wiping all liquor control laws
from our Statutes it would in any
respectable degree promote the
cause of temperance, it would be
our delight to join them in advo
cating the cause, but we try to
look at things in a practical way,
we believe the passage of a gen
neral prohibition law, federal
laws as they are, would amount
to retarding the cause of tem
perance, it would bring about
a condition in a number of
counties which ~exists in the
county of Charleston today. i. e.,
the lack of respect for the liquor
control law. Whyy Because no
liquor law which deprives the
citizen of the right to engage in
a business that is recognized as
legitimate commerce meets with
approval in a large city, especi
ally a seaport city where all na
tions visit, and because such a
law is forced upon them by the
power of might, the sentiment
is resentful and growing stronger
every day; as a result of this
antagonistic sentiment where
the law is to be enforced, it is a
signal failure, and open lawless
ness is the consequence. It will
be the same in the rural counties
that have prohibition forced up
on them against their will.
Those counties whIch have a
prohibition sentiment sufficiently
strong to enforce the law have
all they want in the present sys
tem, and there is no need~ for
them. nor is it right to resort to
might because of numbers and
drive counties that hare not this
sentiment into a chaotic condi
tion, which would be the case if
a county is forced into prohibi
tion against the sentiment and
its environments, - and condition
of its people.
The element who now support
prohibition that were ardent
supporters of the former system,
while their votes count as much
as that of a prohibitionist, is in
fact a dangerous ally, because,
disappointment and spite is the
motive and when the cause of
the revenge has been gratified,
he not only will not exert
himself to enforce- prohibition
but on the other hand, he is
more likely to throw obstacles
in the way in the hope that his
old pet, the State dispensary.
with its opportunities for graft
will be brought back.
Governor Ansel removed a

Bishop Turner of the A. M.

alleged that the Bishop offers to

AWe do not know anything about
the good Bishop's sporting pro
clivities, but it would be a pretty
safe bet alright. If the "nig

iticians, it they think the space

ing medium to advance their
political interests, they can ac

had not been so liberal with

Data Concerning Importance of Fall De
struction of Cotton Stalks.
(By James S. McCarthy.)
Washington, D.C. .July 15
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture i
has deen considered by many tha
the destruction of cotton stalkz
after killing frost was of littlE
value in the control of the bol
weevil. All observers have a
greed that this process is of para
mount value before that time.
Recent data show clearly thai
the destruction of the stalks af
ter several severe frosts is o
great value; in fact, it is appar
ently only slightly less effica
cious than earlier destruction

ful estimate of the of weevils pei

plantation was made. In differ
ent portions of the field 35 plants
were examined and calculations
were made on the basis of 8, 30(
plants per acre-probably no1

of 6, -103 weevils per acre. An
odditional examination was made
an December 1 after many heavy
frosts. At this time 14 hiber
nating weevils were taken from
36 plants, indicating that 3,22%
weevils per acre were present in
the field. Examinations of the

selected at random in the field

From the above data it is evi
dent that a farmer may control
the number of weevils to a very
considerable extent by the fall
destruction of the stalks even
very Irte iu the season. Tfhe ad
vantage of early destruction of
stalks. when possible was shown
by an examination on November
15 before the first killing frost
occurred. At this time the leaf
rubbish on the ground revealeu
adult weevish at the rate of 1.,056
per acre. After the first killing
frost a similar examination gave
2,844 w e e v i11 s per acre. The
frost had forced large numbers of
weevils from the plants to the
protection a f f o r d e d on the
ground. The very great advan

removing from the tield and bur

Bank Notes Three Thousand Years Old
What are said to be the oldest
bank notes in the world are the
-flying money" first issued in
China in 289'7 B.C. One writer
tells that the ancient Chinese
~bank notes were in many respect:
similar to those of the present
day, bearing the name of the
bank, the date of issue the num
ber of the note, the signature of
the official who issued it and its
value, in both figures and words.
On the top of these curious notes
was the following philosophic in
junction: "Produce all you can:
spend with economy." The note
was printed in blue ink on paper
made from the fiber of the mnul
berry tree. One these notes,
bearing the date of 1390 B. C. is
still preserved in the Asiatic Mu
