B. M, Zattler, the People’s Party
candidate for State School Commis
sioner, is a descendant of the Salzbur
gers of Ebenezer, Effingham county,
and a native Georgian. He was educa
ted at the county academy at Spring
field and at the Lutheran college at
Newberry, S. C.
On the secession of Georgia in Janu
ary, 1861, he left college returned home
and joined the Oglethorpe Light In
fantry of Savannah-Bartow’s Compa
ny—and went to Virginia. The Com
pany became Cdmpsny B df the fa
mous Sth Ga. Regiment, and with it he
participated in the first battle of Ma
nassas, the Seven Days battles around
Richmond, at Thoroughfare Gap and
Second Manassas. At the last named
ho was severely wounded and perma
nently disabled, and for the remainder
of the war served as Government Agent
for the collection of the produce or
tythe tax.
At the close of the war he returned
to his father's farm in Effingham and
assisted in finding subsistence for t-e
family and making a crop.
In the fall he took charge of Guyton
Academy and the following year was
elected a Principal of one of the public
schools of Savannah then being organ
ized where he continued’till 1873, when
he was elected Superintendent of the
public school system of Bibb county.
He organized tho schools of the county
under the new system, which embraced
also the city of Macon, and continued
with them for twenty-two years. Being
a man of practical sense he had more
or less to do with every detail connec
ted with the establishing of the schools
and making the system the model of
tho State. Especially did his practical
ideas show themselves in the planning
and equipping of school buildings and
nowhere in tho United States can
there be found more admirably arrang
ed and better furnished school houses.
When Gov. Northen went into office
ho was endorsee’ by the leading teach
ers of the State for the appointment of
State School Commissioner and there
was a general surprise among the
teachers that he was not appointed.
In 1894 he retired from active school
work and removed to Atlanta.
In religion he is a Baptist, having
joined that denomination in 1863 and
is at present a deacon in tho First Bap
tist church of Atlanta.
He is at present engaged in the school
text book business and like the other
candidates on the P. P. state ticket was
placed there by the Party without
seeking or solicitation on his part.
Pingree Won’t Down.
Pingree is a bully boy with a glass
sys. He’s the nightmare of the Repub
lican party. They don’t know what
to do with him. He’s the bull in the
China shop of corporation privileges.
A combination forms to raise the price
of asphalt for paving the streets of
Detroit. He slips off to Trinidad or
seme other place and brings back a
company ready to furnish asphalt at
one-third of the price asked by the
trust. It grits its teeth and swears,
but can do nothing. The legislature
passes a law about the sale of mileage
books at two cents a mile. The Michi
gan Central refuses to obey it and
says, “What are you going to do about
it ? ” Pin gree as a private citizen offers
them money for such a ticket and
brings suit because they retuse, and,
unlike most suitors, instead of getting
on his knees, he brings them to theirs.
And now, worst of all, he’s actually
called the legislature together to reme
dy the inequality of taxation, and he
“In violation of the spirit if not the
letter of these provisions of the consti
tution, laws have been passed from
time to time by which railroad compa
nies, express companies, telegraph and
telephone companies, now owning ac
cording to their e worn returns, at least
one-third of the property of this state,
arc required to pay only about one
twenty-sixth of the taxes levied for
state, county, and municipal purposes,
leaving their just proportion of public
expenses to fall upon ths farmers, la
borers and manufacturers and other
property owners of the state.”
Now this is rank confiscation. It’s
opposition to special privileges, and
every one knows our civilization is
built upon special -privileges. The Re
publican machine has tried to down
him, but he’s bigger than the machine.
Ho don’t talk much, but ho acts. Iv’a
well to keep your eye on Pingree. He’s
a bad, bid man and the people love
him.—Eltweed Pomeroy.
The Omaha Exposition.
In tho Government building there)
will be in operation a miniature mint, I
or coin press, striking off souvenir ra-d
--als commemorative of the Trans-Mis-
Exposition at Omaha. Com
posite photography has been utilized
in making the die for one side of the
medal. A corps of competent judges
was appointed in each of ths Trans-
Miisissippi states, who selected from
the number of beautiful women within
their respective boundaries, two of the
fairest. Photographs of these were
sent to aa eastern photographer by
whom a composite picture of the forty
four beauties has been produced. Tho
result aptly illustrates the best and
strongest type of western young wo
manhood. On the obverse side of the
medal will appear an Indian in the act
of spearing a buffalo. The two illus
trations will be a sufficient indication
of the strides that civilization and cult
ure have made in the West during the
last fifty years,
The referendum has every principle

A Good Man Gone.
Editor Walter J. White, of the
Wrightsville Record, died in Atlanta a
few days ago after a short illness at
the ago of 43 years.
Editor White was born in Harris
county and early in life entered tho
newspaper field.
Since the spring of 1891, he had been
active in the reform field and practi
cally died in the harness fighting the
battle of the people. His genial, lova
ble nature won him scores of friends
who always found him a “true blue.”
His widow and 3 sous will continue
the Record at Wrightsville. The reform
movement in Georgia has lost a valua
ble worker.
In a Quandry.
Two brothers from a North Missouri
county appeared one morning at the
portals of the St. Joseph insane asylum,
one of them to be incarcerated there as
a patient, tho other having him in
charge as far as tne asylum. They
were dressed very much alike, and the
casual observer on the train would not
have detected signs of insanity in
cither. When the keeper appeared
each insisted that he bad brought the
other. ... he asylum manager was in a
quandary. He chatted with his visitors
until a late hour, and then locked
them up in a room together. Then ho
telegraphed tho authorities at the town
where tho brothers lived : “Two men
from your town arrived today both
dressed alike; one calls himself Bill
and talks about constructing an air line
to the moon; tho other goes by the
name of Dave and advocates the nomi
nation of Bryan in 1990 Which shall
I keep?”—Macon It • publican.
Here is a Good One.
The Independent, O'Neill, Nehr., had
in double column headlines, over its
war news in a recant issue, the follow
ing words: “Now glory to the Lord of
Hosts, on whom our nation leans, and
glory to our bravo Jack Tars who took
the. Philippines And glory to cur
commodore who grandly woo the day,
and set Old Glory’s stars and stripes
above Manila bay. Go ring the bells
and fire the guns from Maine to Golden
Gate, for Dewey his the Philippines
and Uncle Sam pays the freight.”
Clow Denver Loses.
Tho Denver Times says that Denver
loses 330,900 a year by reason of the arc
lights being less candle power than the
contract. But that is one of the beau
ties of private operation of the plant.
Such cities and towns as o.vn their
plants are not favored with such rob
bery, and are therefore denied the op
portunity of helping to make the rich
still richer. Denver is doing well in
thus proving the beauties of private
operation of public utilities. Denver is
progressive. Dees business on the lat
est, ideas 1 Some old fogie cities own
their plants aud it costs less than halt
what Denver pays. These are times
in which big prices are what the peo
ple want to pay.

Happenings of Interest in the Party All
Over the Union.
The Maine state convention met
June 2 with 104 delegates of which only
4 favored “co-operation.” A strong
platform was adopted declaring against
fusion; favoring governpient money ;
opposing bonds and banks of issue;
favoring direct legislation r,a a cardi

By false representations, a majority of
the recent Populist convention were
induced to favor co-operation and a

the Populists to the Democrats. The

If you owe a man ten dollars and he
offers to take your note without inter
est, wouldn’t yon consider yourself x
blooming idiot to ask him to take a
note with an interest clause instead?

It is a blessed period
in a woman’s life when
a dear little stranger
conies driving down (
out of cioudland to '—
make its home in her j S
heart and call her
mother. Yet the ma-*/ zl
jority of women ap
proaeh this time with
fear and misgiving
both for themselves
and the expected little
one. The mother’s \\3 heart fore
bodes some
n weakness or
imperfc ction in the
/a baby while the worn-
J I anly nature fears its
J own sufferings; and per
,/J ‘ J haps a little spice of vani
about her figure makes
4"V her dread that its attrac-
(y % h-a\ contour uiay be de-
T \ stroyed by maternity.
’k T,/ as a matter of fact
when a woman is in per-
Z’/^/ tcct health and condi
\ n* tiou, motherhood should
/ serve to enhance
■A accentuate her phy-
j sical attractiveness. ICv-
Fj ery expectant mother
lari should know and avail
herself of the health-giving, nerve-toning
properties of Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Pre
scription. It gives specific strength and
endurance to the organism of maternity ;
promotes thorough, healthy, constitutional
vigor and recuperative energy. It makes
motherhood safe and comparatively com
fortable; insures the baby’s perfection and
preserves the mother’s buoyant spirit and
womanly attractiveness.
Mr-.. Elizabeth Hull, 27 Merrick Street, Paw- I
tucket. R. 1., writes. •*] have taken Dr. Pierce’s ,
Favorite Prescription and cannot speak too well I
of it. I have had fifteen babies, and always hail
a bad time. Sometimes I had to have two doc
tors. I began taking your ‘ Prescription ’ L.st I
July, and in September 1 gave birth to two little |
girls, and I never had such an easy time. I had
no doctor, and was a >t in pain half of the time
as before. My weight is about two hundred
pounds. My twins when born weighed ten
pounds each. They are fine girls, now feur
months old.”
In many cases where constipation is one
of the aggravating causes of disease, Dr.
Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets should be used in
conjunction with the “ Favorite Prescrip- ,
tiun.” They are the simplest and moat

t laxness follows. Certainly the tenden-

The political party then in power has
been punished by dismissal, bnt “a
thorough cleaning” has not followed.

Rev. C. A. Eaton, Toronto, said in
The Globe, April 10: “More than half
the people of Canada belong to some
• Christian church. How does it happen
i that corruption in politics has long
been accepted by the cteetorate as the
natural and normal thing? It surely
is and there has not been that out
spoken opposition to wrong by speech
■ and deed which the New Testament de
mands of its followers.” That is true;
and a confession of fault or failure is
- the first step towards remedy or suc
cess. Mr. Eaton rightly adds: “A re
ligion which does not make a man a
, different and batter citizen may be
Christian in form but not in reality.”
The nations are disappointed with
the results of representation and an
initiative and referendum law is be- I

their labor is ready for the market, all
they havo to do is to deliver it. Tha
i burden of fixing the prise is borne by
wiser men. Joseph Leiter is a noble
, man ia aisguise. If farmers had kept
. their wheat over winter, its price would
not now be considerably more than a
I dollar, and workingmen would not now
( be compelled to pay fifty per cent
! higher for their bread and flour. Farm
ers ought really to rejoice that they
, are not responsible for this outrage,
i and doubtless they do. When toilers
pay more for bread, they, of course,
. can pay less for other produce of the
! farm, and buy less of it, but after all,
1 a clear conscience, is worth more than
( gold. Rejoice, ye farmers everywhere.
New York has a crack regiment
, called the “Seventh.” Its members
, are from the upper ten crowd, and
. when the recent call for troops was
considered, 1063 out of 1067 of its mem
j bars voted not to respond. Their reply
I is that they “do not wish to mix in the
. ranks with social inferiors,” but tha
. colonel eays the regiment “will con
. tinue to furnish officers and soldiers”
I for the army. Officers spawned in such
, au atmosphere can never be patriots,
but the lesson was, doubtless, needed.
The “social inferiors” of New York
snobs will net be as ready hereafter to
! enlist as patriotic defenders of a conn
. try which is really controlled by con
. temptible cowards such as those in the
Seventh Regiment ot New York. The
real defenders of a country are those
1 who own a home—aud only a home—
s with loved ones in it to patriotieall’
1 defend.
