Who Man is Who is Attempting
to Revive Klan.
The Work of the Klan.
Recently there has been consider
able controversy in the state press
over the introduction of a society
named the Ku Klux Klan, of which
Col. William Simmons, of Georgia, is
organizer and Grand Cyclops. From
what we can gather the concensus of
opinion is that no such organization
is needed here and it is more than
likely to do harm by inciting racial
troubles and unnecessarily alarming
the "brother in black," and whom,
like unto the poor, we will always
have with us. But despite opposi
tion, this new secret society is said to
be organizing lodges all over our
state and is gaining a strong foot
hold -ven north of the Mason and
Dixon line, where the one-time
bloody shirt wavers are alarmed over
the immigration into their midst of
so many negroes from the Sunny
I have known Col. Bill Simmons,
organizer and chief head of this Ku
Klux Society, for. o these many
y ars. We lived in neighboring
counties and the same congressional
li:.trict. Colonel Simmons is an able
lawyer and a polished Southern gen
tleman of spotless character. But
he has ever been an uncompromis
ing, ran tankerous,red-hot-and-still-a
heating, organized Democrat. To
looked with disapproval on the Farm
ers Alliance, and to mention Tom
Watson in his presence was to cause
Bill Simmons to manifest every
symptom of political hydrophobia.
Colonel Simmons is a good church
man, but if the Democratic conven
tion repudiated the Ten Command
ments and an opposition party mad
them a part of its platform, he would
unhesitatingly endorse and, if called
on, take the stump in support of his
party and its creed.
Colonel Simmons has a commend
able ambition for public honors, but
his extrenie views have never per
mitted him to advance further than
his front gate.
When we Democrats in the old
ninth Georgia district were beating
the bushes to find a candidate to pit
against Emory Speer, the brilliant
young independent in Congress, Bill
Simmons would have been given the
nomination; but as Mr. Speer had
defeated two of the strongest men in
the district by over 7,000 votes, the
colonel decided not to act the part
of political lamb led to slaughter.
So as a dernier resort the organized
Democrats nominated Allen D. Chan
dier, a comparatively unknown man,
and one of the most ungainly speci
mens0 of humanity you ever looked
upon as their congressional stan da rd
bearer. To give the readers a faint
