The Hon Tom Watson doesnt fa
vor immigration professedly because
IM wants to keep the Southern stock
of Americans pure Seeing as how
he also wants to get rid of the ne
gro it is dilllcult to understand ow I
he would get the Georgia rottonflelds
worked We remember another
great Georgian of whom M r Watson
is a reminder because he is so dif
ferent who opposed immigration
the late Robert Toombs He based
his opposition however on the claim
that there were already in tb1 state
more idle whites than the negroes
could well support or words to that
effect and hft didnt want to take
chances on trotting more We are
I
quite sure that Mr Watson will eith
er have to have immigrants or hold
on to the negroes in fact the state is
progressing so rapidly that it begins
to look as though ho would need

The proceedings of the Georgia leg
islature read for all the world like
those of the Florida legislature For
instance in quick succession were
the following An act to prohibit the
sale and manufacture of spirituous or
malt or intoxicating beverages in the
state of Georgia after January the
first There were six bills of this
nature one right after the other
Then came the following To prohib
it the shipment of intoxicating li
quors into dry counties to prohibit i
the shipment of whiskey into prohibi
I tion counties to make it illegal to
maintain a blind tiger or sell intox
I ieating liquors in dry counties All
these hills in part and in whole were
i introduced one after another in the
Florida legislature The Georgia leg
j islntors are also struggling with the
amipass bill an frank bill and
I
hundreds of other hills When shall
the states of this Union and the na
tion itself gN laws enough
While the partisans of Mr T A
Jennings are loudly proclaimius his
strength as a cadidare for the govern
i orship the Ocala Banner voices the
question that has probably been on
the lips of many an old stager Jen
nings has never been in politics be
fore so what gives him his great
lImB asks the Banner It would be
very unusual for a man altogether
I untried in politics to be elected to
the highest office within the gift of
the people of the state but perhaps
j the friends of Mr Jennings expect
his nonparticipation in public mat
