WORKING FOR THE WIREGRASS
An Old Citizen Eulogizes Governor Troup

The Times man into his chair iD the

in which a section of the state has
been doing its share of voting, has
been giving up its share of governing

The Old Settler smiled a smile of in

Governor Troup, as told last Sunday
in The Times, tells another tale. No,
the soil’s all right; the people’s all
right; the party’s all right. It’s that
blamed Atlanta ring. They have
taught the people that the only busi
ness of a wiregrass democrat is to put
a ballot, made by a city lawyer, into a
box made by a country carpenter, and
take himself off to his plough again.
But—say, lemme tell you—’’and the
grizzled veteran smiled grimly—“old
George Troup, the man who defied
John Quincy Adams, was not built on
any such accommodating plan. I once
heard an old timer call him the ‘John
the Baptist of state’s rights,’ and a few
such men nowadays would give those
Atlanta fellows something to base a
few sad thoughts on.”
‘‘And I’m not alone in my opinion,
either,” resumed the Old Settler.
“Don’t think that. Listen to this
from the Macon Telegraph,” and in
his quavering old voice he read the
following chunk of editorial wisdom :
“ ‘The wiregrass people can accom
plish nothing until they get together.
As long as the Atlanta ring can split
them the ring is safe.’
“How’s that? And this, now, from
the Valdosta Times?”

In view' of the great number of let
ters 1 am receiving daily from all sec
tions of the state, inquiring if the
Georgia Mutual fire insurance com
panies doing business in this state
have any deposits of securities with
the state treasurer or any capital or
assets, I am convinced that there is a
general misapprehension on the part
of the people of Georgia as to just
what requirements are imposed by the
state upon this class of fire insurance
In order therefore that the public
may be officially informed on this
point, I desire to state that the class
of fire insurance companies engaged
in business in this state known as the
Georgia mutuals, all of which have
but recently been organized under
charters granted by the legislature to
do a fire insurance business on the
mutual plan are not required to have
capital assets, or a deposit with the
state treasurer for the protection of
their policy holders. It will thus be
seen that these companies must neces
sarily depend entirely upon premiums
or assessments collected from their
policy holders or members for funds
with which to pay losses.
These companies having complied
with the provisions of their charter
granted by the legislature, it is made
uiy duty to licence said companies to
do a mutual fire insurance business in
this state, winch I have done.
