DAWSON, G \., Mcn. 20, 18%9. |

Every farmer in Terrell who
raises his farm supplies on his own |
tarm is prospering. |
Rfomebody has threatened to blow
up *he Colurado legislature with
dynamite if it does not adjourn;
but this is not the proper way to
elevate a legislature,
Corpor 1 Gunn weleomes us |
back to the Eleventh -"(‘nfltnriu]g
district. Weare glad to get hack,’
for there is nothing more refreshs
ing than a triendly twist with the
Corporal when he is on the wrong
side of an issue.
. The twenty-sixth day completed
#. L. Adan’s, the Macon forger,
fast. He quictly passed awazy
W eduesday, surrounded by loving
relatives and fmends, und his case
i thus appealed to a Ligher court.
Let us not judge him harshly.
- What Dawson mostly necds tn\
mreke her what she should be, is a|
diversity of small industries, and |
these could he easily secured it nur‘
citizens would offer suitable induces '
ments to men of eapual to locate [
here. Why not make an effort cre |
the golden opportunity slips by. |
The Woolfolk irial in Macon h:xs\i
broken down on account of failure |
toobtain a jury. A change of ve
nue was ordered by Judge Gastin !
oun Thursday, and the case will now
Le tried in Houston some time in
May. This celebrated case has had
many chapters. Whatis still to
come, no one knows,
A centleman living in Marietta
is thoroughly temperate as to ardent
spirits, and never dritksany water.
He confines himself to miik and
coffee, and seems to enjoy as much
health as the usual run of mankind.
He says he has no particuiar avers
sion to water, but has no desire to
drink it. He 1s a Methadist, of
The Alliance’s Exchage.
Tt begins to look, says the Su
vanah News, asif the Farmers’ Al
liance of Georgia would succced in
eatablishing the exchange of which
there has been a great deal of talk
lately. Mr. Felix Corput, the
managerof the projected enterprise,
says th:t th reisno doubt tha' it
will be in operation at an early day.
Tie city in which it is to be situa
tel has not been selected. It will
not be until 1t is fully decided
which of the cities of the state of
fers the greatest inducements. The
alliance thinke that the city that is
chosen wi.l be ¢ reatly benefived, bes
cause the exchange will draw trade
to it. Ic¢ is expected, therefore,
that each city will be a bidder for
the exchange.
The capital of the exchange will
be $200,000, which will be turnish~
ed by the county alliances, and the
exchange will be opened for busi
ness' when £50,000 is paid in.
About $lO, 000 has been received
thus far, and no doubt is feit that
the enti'e a mount will soon be
The plan now is for the exchange,
in the beginning, to handle only
the heaviest articles. The lighter
ones will be given attention when
the exchange is no longer an exs
periment, and its value 10 the far
mers has been fully demonstras
Mr. Corput says that there is no
intention to interfere with the mer
chants. Farmers will be advised
to deal with the merchants when
they can do as well with then as
with the exchange. The effort of
the. exchange he says, however,
will be to keep down prices.
Notwithstanding the statement
that there is no iztention to inters
fere with the merchants, it will be
difficult, if not impossible, for the
merchants to compete with the ex
change in articles which the ex«
change handles, It is the purpose
of the excliange to sell at cost prices,
with freights and expenses of
bandling added. Merchants must
have some profit, and gs they would
‘pot order in as large lots as the ex
ehange,they could not buy ascheap-
Iy asthe exchange. Ifthe exchinge
i 8 oxerated successtully, therefore,
it will have the advantage of the
n erchants,
Te the Central Railrocd.
We would call your attention to
the very great need of a new depot
in one of the most thriving and go
ahead towns on your live of road.
We have been for years buying
our tickets and getting freight st
an_ apology for a d-pot that would
be a disgrace to the sn.allest station
on ‘your line. We have wuited
patiently, only hoping that' some
day you would become ashamed ot
the structure and meet the de nands
ofour growing city, and that you
would ro longer force a 8300 des
pot on a city of 3,000 people. Bat
now patience ceases to be a virtue
—vyou would ‘prohably let us go on
another year and almost double our
population before you would erect
‘o building suitable fur this town.
But we can’t do it.
~ The depot that we now have is a
; reflection upon and an injury to
cour town, and we should have a
' handsomer and more mudern strue
! ture. Our people demand it, and
| our prosperity requires it.
\ Come, gentlemen of the Central,
act decently with us, tear down
5 that old linll and erect, in its stead,
{ 2 handsome lrick depot'that would
[ do credit to the city of Dawson
L and to your corporation.
A Few Words of Soberness.
A week or two ago Mr, Ben Par
hain ot Warren county earried to
the town of Warrenton ecizhteen
hams, and sold them for cash.
Many ot the farmers have heard of
this isulated instance and wondered
at it. It was such an extraordina
ry performance that it created a
perfect excitment all over the
State, .
Why? Iso’t it the main element
of the farmer’s occupation to live
on what he digs outof the earth and
fattens on the produce? What
greater irony than that a man who
theoretically feed's the people, tor
| their money, should buv the very
| things he issupposed to raise ? A
farmer buying eotton or potatoes or
hay is no worse thar one who mort
gages his erop for corn and meat.
' What would be thought ot a cot~
ton goods manufacturer who bouht
the goods already made for six
cents and sold them four ? Yet,
- where is the diflerence ? There is
' none,
The economy of Providence is!
that the farmer shall get what he
cats and wears out of the earth
—he tills and furiishes the surplus
to those who are in other occupas
tiozs, Nature provides that tar
mers shall feed the world—yet it
looks like the world feeds tarmers
and grows rich on the profits of
the bargain. As it is, merchants
force farmers to pay their own
prices for the food which by every
law of pro luction and consumption
and common sense the farmers
ought to force merchants to pay
their own prices.
The condition ot affairs is ah
surdly abnormal. The absmdity
may be remedied by the farmers
It will be a proud day tor any
county when it is annouened that
“sweet, fresh’ country hamsare tor
snle to the city trade.
When the time comes that it will
be a matter ot surprise when a coun
try wagon carries out r.eat instead
of bringing ic in, then the just bal
ance will be reached, and not till
The year of 'B9 gives evidence all
overthe statea more emphatic earn~
est of a revolution along this line
than for years past.
Mighty influences are at work——
great brains and honest hearts are
earnestly luboring. The tuture we
believe is brighter than in years,
Hotest bearts and ready hands,
and determined minds will do won,
ders for the southland, and some
day we trust we will have, instead
of annual funeral orations over the
decaying agricultural interest of
Georgia, the cairying together of
prosperous commusities; instead
of heavy hearts and care-worn
faces, cheerfulness, home and con
Let Our Commissioners Read.
The supreme court ot Georgia
rendered a decision the other day
which should receive the caretul
attention of couaty commissioners
aud other officers whose duty it is
to Jet out contraets for building
bridges, The court decided that
where the officers failed to take
sufficient guaranty from the con
tractors, and any party was injurs
ed owing to defect in the bridge
built by them, the injured party
could sue either the contractors or
the county. The decision, no
doult, will wake vounty commis

An Anarchist in Georgia.
There has been an anarchist in
Atlunta {for several weeks, and he
preached incendiarism to negro
audiences, His name is H. F
Hoover, and in the day time is an
active dress pattern and dress chart
agent. At night he has been ad
dressing the negroes by appoint
ment, and inyvarciably takes up a
colleetion, He represents himselt
as “*Grand Worthy Chief Sage of
the Co-opereative Workers of
America.” He tells the negroes
that the property owned by rich
and well to do white men right
fully belongs to them, and mew
bership in his co-operative order
will disclose to them the way to se
cure their share of it. Or conise
wembership calls tor initiation fees,
and he pockets the money. This
may be his main purpose, to cheat
the negroes out of mouney for him
self, but his outrageous harangues
have beecome known, and he is un
der the surveileance of the Atlanta
police. He wiil doubtless be fore
ed to move on, or clse punishe? di
rectly. He was shot in Warren coun
ty about two years ago,by outraged
citiz'ns, for arousing the negroes
by sich speeches as he has delivercd
in Atlanta during the past several
weeks. Georgia should be made
too hot for such scoundrels,
