Georgia Legislature, However, Refuses
Fieo License to Yankee Soldiers.
Atlanta, Ca., Nov. :!0.?The Georgia
legislature has Killed a hill tiy Mr.Calvin,
of Richmond county, which provided for
granting free licenses to Yankee soldiers
who might now he living in tne State.
The hill created much surprise and was
strongly condemned Two men spoke in
favor of the bill, but their speeches re?
ceived little attention.
Several men who opposed the bill said
that they loved the Union and had no
leelie.g of hostility against the North or
against the men who fought against the
South in the days of Jthe civil war, but
they were unalterably opposed to a meas?
ure that would he a reward for the r.iPii
who came to Georgia in 180-1 and burned
the homes of the people who are now ex?
pected to help and pension the Union sol?
diers.
A number of members said that, the
national government made ample provis?
ion in the way of pensions for the aid of
the Union veterans, anil they thought
Georgtn, should conttne her aid to the
men who bled in her defense during the
war;
There was no hostile sentiment uttered
against the North during tin* whcle pro?
gress of the argument, but the members
seemed to regard the bill as ridiculous.
