ATLANTA, Aug. 2S That a Confederate
soldier should ever be denounced in the
Georgia legislature as a "buttermilk ran
ker" is one o' the things not to unexpected,
yet it happened Wednesday. Not only
that, but the borne for poor au.l ilis.iblo.l
Confederate veterans, which was the Inst
work of the late Henry W. Grady, and for
which he raised $ 100,000, was unceremon
iously rejected. The building had been
completed, and was tendered to the state
on condition that k. should support the
veterans. Tliere was never a doubt about
the state's acceptance of the terms of tbe
died until the state Alliance pronocneod
tho people too poor to keep impecunious
veterans. Tne seiftiel came Weduesday
when tbe proposition was rt'j.-cted by a big
rtla-liug The Constitution.
The Constitution, the newspaper that
Henry W. Gnttdy built up to national
pronrinence, had some scorching things to
say yes;erly of the action of the legisla
ture, and uliea that body mot, yesterday
morning Wright introduced a resolutiin
to the effect that as "The Atktnta Consti
tution (whose editor-in-chief is the speak
er of this house) of this morning rs reek
ing with the filth of the slums against the
majority of tbe legislature, therefore, re
solved that said Constitution receive toe
severest censnre of this body." This reso
lution was occasioned by the comments
and news views of that journal on the ac
tion of the legislature in having refused
to receive the soldiers' home. A fierce de
bate was precipitated, in which the men
who voted against the hone denounced
everything ip sight.
elt Like Mating- Krporters.
Perhaps the most angry man in the hedy
was Davis, tit Burke, who said: "The Con
stitution hes seen fit to quote a man
'uOi: t'iry . nil j:-;l c. l!e L.is been li v
ing to be a juae or a solicitor lor the
past ten years, but has never bfen able to
master a corporal's gnard. Ijet ns rele
gate bttn to the rear as has other legisla
tures and pass him unnoticed with the
contempt he deserves. Wbeu I first read
The Constitution this morning I thought
could eat up a Constitution reporter
every hundred yards."
He wipvd "Bill Smith."
Tbe sensation, of the day was reached
when Kverett of Stewart county arose. -I
want," said he. "to read what Colonel Hill
Smith, of Gwinette, says of u-, and to give
my opmiou of Lini. I understand Bill
Smith was a member f the last legisla
ture, and a man of some talent, but he is
a sore-beaded, drunken demagogue. I am
one of the ninety-four who voted against
the bill, and when he says I am a traitor
be is a liar, a thief, and a drunken scoun
drel. AIm Cure Fortes a Whirl.
"Then there is Captain George Forbes.
I learn be goes around drunk for two
weeks at a time. Does The Constitution
go aronnd bunting up vagabonds acd
drunkards to quote againstfjembers of
the legislature?" Speaker Ifowell c
fended his paper in a strong tetvminute
speech. The whole matter was subse
quently tabled, but Mr. Everett's part
was by no. means tbrtiugh. He was given
an intimation that Colonel Smith, who is
a prominent and wealthy citizen, and
Colonel George Forbes, who commands
the Atlantic Artillery company, expected
a retraction, or more would be beard of
Denounced by 8am Small.
The attack on these men, both veterans
of the war, and now occupying prominent
positions, made under the protection of
the house, has aroused further indigna
tion. Au immense throng attended the
meeting called by the Confederate Veter
ans' association la&t night. One of the
leading orators was Sam Small, who de
nounced tke action of the Alliance legis
lature as but a part of a bargain with the
Kansas Alliance people

would certainly be a duel between Asbe

of this county arrested Albert B. Mavnes
and bis wife Minnie on a ranch a bo tit
forty miles fronl this place, and last night

Madame Astle, the abortionist who is now
under arrest, and was delivered of twins
which were placed in a stove and roasted
bfore the husband's eyes while they were
BtTll alive. Tbe police say that this so
preyed on the mind of Mayues that he
made a full confession to them of the aw
Prospect of Startling Revelations.
Mrs. Maynes.wbo is a very pretty young
woman, does not seem worried about the
matter, however, but will not talk to re
porters concerning it. The police are after
other married people on the same charge,
and say that arrests will follow thick and
fat, and that before tbe matter is through
with there will be such a stirring up of
Denver society as never was dreamed of.
Madame Astie says that if someone does
not come to her aid and get her out of this
trouble she will tell all she knows, which,
she says, fs a great deal. Complaints have
been made against prominent officials iu
