Georgia Democrats Declare for tlio
Atlanta, Ga., March 1. The
state executive committee has
issued an address jn behalf of ex
President Cleveland declaring that
the unfair and undemocratic ac
tion of the machine in New York
indicates a purpose to make the
will of the people subservient to
the greed of politicians. Wc
therefore believe the time has
come for active and resolute or
ganizations of the Democratic
masses in Georgia. The best sen
timent of the people in this state,
as in New York, finds expression
throughout against the machina
tions of political intrigues. It de
clares Mr. Cleveland the choice
of the Democrats of Georgia and
he can carry New York and the
