Blaine has written a letter to the Chairman of the Re publican National Committee, stat -1 itg that bis name will not be pres ented to the National Convention in June for the Presidential nomi nation. HU decision is made on I considerations entirely personal to | himself. He congratulates the ! Party on the cheering prospects for | success in the National contest of 11888, and savs that ‘ one thing only I is necessary to assure success, corn | plete harmony and cordial co-oper ation on the part of all Republicans on the part both of those who arpire to lead and ot those who are eeger to follow.” AN HONEST VO Ta AND A FAIR COUNT, Senator Sherman’s demand for an honest vote and a fair count ought to be echoed by every Republican newspaper and every Republican orator from one end of this broad .land to the other. Let the sneer Ing and unpatriotic mugwump treat this fair demand with the cry of “bloody shirt” II it affords him mer riment. The facts about the solid South are bound to < ome to the I front during thi- campaign, and it I matters not what the shallow, the the ignorant and the selfish may say to ridicule those statesmen who have the courage to de nand from the Southern States that which the fundamental laws of this republic declare is the foundation of repub lican institutions.— An honest vote and a fair count. OUR Party’s choice in June next, is the Tribune’s candidate. f The Republican National Con ] vention will meet in Chicago on June 19, I If your subscription for the Tri- BCNE is due, please call and settle at once.

H, Deveaux, Editor Tribune; Dear Sir:—ln an editorial headed “Chatham’s Disgrace” ot your good paper, I notice the man agement of the chain-gang in said County, is of such a nature that it has causeed old Chatbam f ’to ,blush; not Chatham ccunty aloue, but the whole State of Georgia feel outrag ed at such brutal treatment of her citizens. The beating of a man with whip and stave, reminds one of the Garden of Gathsemune, the place where the innocent was sought for with lanterns and staves. I cau not believe that any man can be so guilty that he shall be beaten with sixty five stripes, and with staves at the same time. This is woisc than ihe cruelty of the Jew* and Romans, and they may be guil ty and worthy of death, but not whiped or beat to death. If a man vi date the laws ot his country, and is to be put io death, let the courts say it and prescribe the manner oi execution. But m Georgia, prison cd convicts are denied the lights and usages ol God’s tree an; free sun and water, that is necessary lo ibe peiservdlion oi life, health and strength. In a civ lized country, as a last request, when one is stand mg on the gallows leady to be hurl id into entermty, water should be allowed if needed. How can the City, the County, or the State ex pect reformation of their offenders as long ns such barbarity is piactice m the piisou. For grave offences, criminals are locked up or put to death to protect the law abiding people. Criminals are punched tc deter them from repeating (heir evil deeds and otheis noi to copy their example. N>- jiisi government will utterly drpnv< prisoners ot opportunity for mental and moral impiovements. The right to punish crimes does not in volve the right to reduce prisoueis to mental or tiD-ral imbecility school of vice. No good govern ment will allow condition; of prison life, that make increasing imino i ality a certainty, as the normal and inevitable result of these conditions. For instance, government in the u line ot law, violates law and com mits a crime against God and man, .vhen it incarcerates mere youths and hardened accomplished villians in common prisons. In such a case government supports and conducts a normal school of vice. It has often come to pass that what was ostensibly designed to protect soci ety against criminals, lias turned loose upon society, men graduated in the arts ofcrime. Good people bv taxation, paying the tut ion of those rho learn in prison how to prey upon them, upon their release- For instance iigmn-4 government tha 1 allows the bearding ot men and women together, is not only crimi nal, it is bo b iron- It promotes vice and tax *s the virtuous for the expenses occuring. An ilhgitimate birth in a chain-gang, jail or peni eniiary is an appalling moral mon stiosity in a civu.z d and Christian country. No language or utter ing!* ciii be too snoiig in the con demnation of Mich a system. Women in Georgia’s prisons—how cared for. In Some m.-tmee they are compelled to do the same wort that the strong men are required to do, and when they can not perfoi in the t ask, they are shamefully ex posed and beaten in the presence of the men. Libertines are placed over them as bosses, and in order to carry out their libidinous desires, the women ate ieduced to the low est fraction of a prison’s prostitute. Last summer it was truly said by a Legislature committee, that there was only one white worn; n in the penitentialy and.to prevent the debauchery from corrupting her; she was locke«’ up in a house and another white lady kept th>- key, (she being thu cip'nm’s wife) and: no one was allowed io interfear. She was not an officer, but for the chastity of that poor unfortunate 1 woman, she dare to bold the key,; hut who guard the chastity of the | colored women in Georgia’s prisons? vicious and immoral men that have tiieir devilish desires to satisfy, and their lust of the flesh to please. THE PRISON BORN CHILDREN. In the prisons of Georgia, children < of the various shades are born to Hie I disgrace ot the Mate, the question) is asked whose children are they and who shall care for them? I ans wer by saying they are Georgia’s illegitimate prison gotten children, and Georgia must care for them, paintul though it be. Georgia and Georgia alone is responsible for the enormity of her prisons. The law may he ample to protect the pris oners, but the State official is not in c.large of her convicts, she delegat ed the prisoners to individuals whose only purpose is to make money for self benefit. Can Geor gia the great empire State of the South say to the world she is not accountable for prison born chil dren- Those children’s mothers in instances are prisoners for life,while their father may be sentence to serve a term of years only, others father are white men, who have been employed as hos-es or guards. Such libertines ought to be tried and sentenced to prison tor their crimes. Let the good people of Georgia, males and females gn at and small, rich and poor of every shade, without regard to parti-ar spirit, cry against the great wicked ness of the prison fare, hum mi'y demands it and civiliz ition require.- it. Let the people see to proper officials are placed i> charge ot the convicits. In con clusion; until a reform prison offi -i al is put in charge of the prisoner-, the State need not expect refoima floli’of the convicts. Oh, rouse thee from thy sleep people of Georgia. A.
