SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 30. 1899 NO WEATHER, NO CONDITIONS Should Disturb the Seienity of Our Minds These Coming Summer Days. BUT BE PATRIOTIC ALWAYS. This is True Americanism and Should he A'ways Before Our Eyes—How One Ingtitu'ion Viewed It. The winter season and the north At lantic are not promising- as to time and .locality for a vacation trip. The old sailor, however, who, when the winds blew and the chimney-pots went tumb ling, preferred to take his chances on old ocean, had a measure of reason. One may he free at sea from some se rious dangers on shore (the grippe, for instance) and as to temperature, the sea is always more equable than the land. Hut in Paris, already in the last of February, tho days were clear and -mli. The grass and the shrubs were U'cen, and the beginning to put out young leaves. It is a milder there than we have, neither so hot in summer nor so cold in winter, and agreeable always. This is the reason why one may see the Parisians taking refreshments and meals at side walk open-air restaurants even in mid winter. * We are going.to say, however, “ Whatever way the wind doth blow, There | some soul would Then blow it Fast or blow it West, The way it blows, that way’s the best.” For after all, it may lie that men grow more active and strong in the crisp, sharp airs of the North American continent. If adversity is good for hu man beings, why may not cold blasts and all kinds of weather gymnastics such as are so common with ns, be good also. It won’t do our climate a bit of good for us to think otherwise, and possibly it may give us contented minds, just the thinking that is best, even in weather conditions, Ho we will be patriotic on the subject and grin and bear weather conditions, as we do some other conditions, for the sake of pride in native land and insti tutions. No institutions of this country are more patriotic than the life insurance companies and none of them equal the patriotism shown by the ' >ld Phnmlx of Hartford. Never was this fact better illustrated than In April 1898 when the inquiry for war permits from new and old pol icy holders of this and other companies were daily made to the agents of this and other companies. While some were charging large ex tra premiums and others were restrict ing their policy holders to service in their states, tho Old Phornix wiped out its restrictions as to war and stood ready and waiting if called on, to pro tect the widows and orphans of its pol icy holders who should die in the de fense of our country. Once again is this grand old company i before the people offering to them a new form of insurance, and so complete is it that the form and style of contract has been copyrighted by the company. Its new life, endowment and annuity form is the perfection of insurance for the young and old alike. Before insuring get a specimen copy of the contract by sending your age to the general agent, -J.

Soms Understanding Wanted Rsgarding the Flushing of Mail Tanks in Sewsrags System. * The oity of Bruoswi6k and Bis Brunswick Bight and Water do,, hav* disagreed on the subject of dualling the sewers . It was started Friday night when council had before it a petition from the Bight and Water Cos., asking for an adjustment of the oity’s indebted ness incurred in hushing the main tanks of the sewerage system, some sixty four in number, whioh the Water Cos lias performed ever since tbe sewers were laid. Contrary to the company’s expectation, the matter was tablrd. Yesterday lteoeiver Greene, of the company, sent an official note to May or Atkinson, stating that unless the city oounoll made some terms of set tlement of the matter within twenty four hours, he would have ttie water shut off from the tanks, Mayor 4 , kinson replied through City Attorney Johnson to the effect that in the interest of the public health he would disallow the water to 'be cut off and suggested reoourso in the courts to settle the iiislter. He also instructed the chief of pol’ce to prevent the threatened action of the Water Cos. Thus the matter stro™ City coun cil has taken no action toward a hasty sett lenient and the Water Cos. com plains of unfair treatment at tbe hands of the municipal authorities. .

BRUNSWICK AT SOUTHERN ?M Banquet Speech Made by Mr. Ed win Brobston of This City at That Place. WELL REPRESENTED HIS SECTION A Gathering of Businoss Men From all Over the United Stales Listened to the Eloquent Ooator. At Southern Fines, N. C , was held bn April 18th, 19th and 20th a most important convention, and one that will have most important bearing on the South in that it will probably lead to other like gatherings. The idea was conceived among the progressive people of that thriving little winter resort among the bills of Carolina and backed by the Seaboard Air Line Railtffcy it took shape in tbe form of a convention by which about one hundred and twenty-five north eru and eastern bankers, business men and oditore, who were really in terested in looking into the south’s ad-, vautages and resources, met at the Piney Woods Inn and talked with southern men from various sectious and iieard them tell of the south and its advantages. Brunswick had a representative there who occupied a very prominent plaoe on tlie'prograui and his speeches both on the resources of Georgia, and his banquet speech in responfe to the toast “Georgia” has won for him some kind expressions, both from the Georgia and North Carolina press. Lack of space forbids our printing the address in full on the resources of Georgia, but the banquet speech is here given as delivered the evening of the 19:b. When Governor fiusseil of North Carolina, had concluded in response to “The Old North State”, "Georgia” was proposed and Mr. Brobston called on for response, lie was greeted with applause ami received quite an ova tion. At conclusion he said : “Air, Toa .(master, as I stand in the pres ence of so much beauty, wit and gram ; as I see before me so many lovely women and handsome men,it is hard to realize that lam not in the presence of a Georgia audience. You see wo have the iinest folks in the world down in Georgia, and lliost that we don’t raise we get from other stales; in faot the cream of emigra tion lias ever planted itself in Ceor gla, and even New F.ogland is sprinkl ed among our parent stock. “An enthusiastic citizen of ycur state thought to put a quietus on rue this afternoon at the experiment farm, when he said, ‘loud enough for me to overhear, and evidently for rny ears: “North Carolina has about everything in it that Georgia has, ex cept'Georgia Crackers’ ”, I mildly replied to him that: “Our Cracker state is so full of charm, to her people that they never leave it,” , “But among the most honored of our goldenhearted people there are none who outshine those of us from the Old North (state, either in point of ability, patriotism or numbers for that matter. “Why, the North Carolina vote in elcotion times ia worth a seat in con gress, almost in Georgia, certain it it is that in the district where J live BRUNSWICK BOOK CO. SELU=c- Ice . . -k- Cream * Freezers. the North Carolina voto is reokoneu on and can always be counted for the side of conservatism and honest gov ernment. “You ask me to talk about Georgia when i have done nothing landing here two day* ago, "Yeaterday 1 spoke ilfty minutes on your program. I told of our great mountains and rich valleys, our granite, marble and gold, our coal and iron, and water power, great forests, and our agriculture, our horticulture, our wonderous climate. Our great rivers, our sheltered har bors, and our beautiful cities; and nowhere have I overdrawn the pic ture. You hnve only to come to Geor gia. Yon can soon and easily verify those things I have positively stated, And now as a Georgia Cracker let me compliment this Yankee town in the tarbeel state.
