THE MUNICIPAL ELECTION,
One of the Liveliest Flections in ‘
tie History of the City Promised.
It is just ferty-two days from
to-day when the municipal election
will take place, and it bids fair to
be almost as lively as some of our
former campaigns in Dawson.
While there has beea no formal |
announcements for mayor, it is
known that there are several prom-~
inent gentlemen who are not averse
to the honors. The names most
frequently mevtioned in this con
nection are ex-Mayor Wm. Kaig
ler, ex-Mayor Walter B. Cheat
ham and Col. J. G. Purks. All
three of these gentlemen are pop
ular, and a race between them
would be hotly contested and a
full vote brought out. .
So lar Col. Janes, for clerk, and
Fred Clark, for tressurer, have no!
opposition. They bave held these
positions for years, snd would be
hard to defeat.
In the race for aldermen fun
and excitement promise te be
plentiful. Several young men
may make the race, and within the
next few.days the names of the
“racers” may come to the tront.
The city offices should be filled
with liberal and conservative men,
whose main object should be to
build ap ths city and make the
‘necessary improvements. It is
picasant to note the fact that the
young men sre coming te the
frout in state aud municipal polis
vics. With the young and con
servative ..ea to guide her munics
ipal affairs, Dawson will make
such rapid strides forward in the
next twelve mouths that her sister
cities vill be left far in the rear.

A Contest Over the Postmastership,
Until last week no one had an
idea but that Mr. W. R. Baldwin,
the present popular and efficient
postmaster, woald be retained un
der Harrison’s wdministration.
‘l'here now is more or less un
certainty, as Uapt. J. M. Alexan
der is making a strong effort to
secure the prize, and ay one time
last week it was reported that the
appointment had been made and
that Capt. Alexander was the
lucky mar.
This rumor proved untrue,
bowever, and Mr. Baldwin is yet
attending to Uncle Saw’s business
with as muech composure as
if he had a life tenure on the ofy
fice.
Captain Alexander is equally as
confident that he is Dawson’s
coming postmaster,and is watching
and waiting for his appointment.

A MODB IN MILLER,
The Lively Expericnce of the Miiler
County Sheriff Wilh a Frenzicd Meb.
Solicitor~General Griggs return
ed from Miller superior court on
last Friday afternoon.
Ile reports lively times at Col~
quitt, the county site of Miller,
during the week of court.
One night last spiing Bill Sapp,
a negro, entered the bed room of a
young daughter of Mr. Johu S~
Lendon, a prominent farmer ot
that county, and attempted to outs
rage her. Supp was captured and
carrried to the Buinbridge jail to
escape Iynching at the hands of an
curaged populace. :
At the texm of court last week
the negro was to be tried. The
suspicious movements of MecLens
don and his friends attracted at
tention and it was feared that
when Sapp was returned to the
county he would be a promirent
fizure it a lyrching bee. With
the view of keeping the prisoner
out of the reach of vielence as
much as possible, Tudde Bower,
who was presiding for Judze
Guerry, started Sheriff Montgoms
ery to Bainbridge for Sapp one
night after comrt adjourned with
siructions not to return to Col
quitt with the prisoner until after
court convened the next morning.
The sheriff made his night trip
safely, and soon after court opened
the xext morning appeared with
Lis man.
Forsome reason the trial could
not Le had that day, aund nightfall
found Sheiiff Montgomery with
the prisoner on band and a mob
assembling to take that prisoner’s
liie.
Sheriff Mcentgomery was as des
termined to protecy his prisoner as
the wob to lynch him. With four
gu.rds and the prisoner the shenff
took refuge in the swamp of Spring
Creek uoder the cover of darkness,
where he successfully dodged un
til day a mob of seventy-five or a
‘bundred armed men., The sheriff
stated that during the night he
had to cross the creek several times
with his prisoner, and that on one
occasion they and the mob were
but a few yardsapart.
At the break of day the mob
gave up the hunt and dispersed,
and Sheriff Montgemery appearcd
at court with his prisoner ready for
trial. Sapp plead guilty, was sens
tenced to twenty years in the peni
tentisry and was hurned out of the
county before another night would
expose him to the enraged fither
and his triends.

The Bill Introduced.
While here last week Represent
ative Kendrick told the News
that he would pot ntroduce the
bill providing for the stock law
on the west side of Etchaway
Notchaway creek. A delegation
of citizens interested, headed by,
Mr. Willis Lay, went to Atlanta
in the interest of the bill the first
of last week, aud on Wednesday
following the biil swas introduced.
It is now siid that a delegation
will go to Atlanta to defeat tbe}
passage of the measure. There is
astrong gentiment in that distriet
both for and against the stock law,

THE ALA. GA. AND NORTHERX. |
The Railroad From Dawson to Mid
way, Fla.
Hon W. ¢. Kendriek has in
troduced a bill to charter the Ala
bama, Georgia aad Northern rail
road, the line by which it is pre®
posed to connect the Columbus
Southern and the Florida Central
and Peninsular system.
It will be remembered thet two
routes were suryeyed last summer
tor this road, one from Midway,
Fla., to Dawson, and another from
Quincy, Fla., to Riehland, via
Cuthbert. It now seems that if
the road is built at all it will be
compelled to come to Dawson, as
an amendment has been tacked
on to the charter by the legislature
prohibiting it from paralleling the
old Bainbrige and Cuathbert road.
A Columbns correspondent
writes as follows to the Macon Tel
egraph:
The amendment tacked on the
charter of the Georgin, Ambama,
and Florida railroad, prohibiting it
from parrllelirg the road of the
proposed Bainbridge, Cuthbert
and Columubs roal,met with great
disapproval in this eity. The evi
dent intention of the amendment
was to defeat the bill granting the
charter. The Rainbridge, Cuth~
b:rt and Columbus road bed and
charter are said to be owned by
certain lawyers, members of the
legisluture, who had sufficient in
fluence to tack on the amend, wille
inz the biil,
‘L he road bed of the proposed
Cuthbert line has been lying un
finished since ahout 1870. Several
attempts have been made to form a|
company to push the roud to com
pletion, but they always failed. 1
Now when a new corporation
comes in its field and proposee!
building a line {nrnllnd to the
Cuthbert 10al, the bill g anting
