It is Just three weeks from next

It seems that they apply cloture
pretty effectually in the general Epis

Hon. J. C. Buxton tried to speak,
coupling intemperance with divorce,
he was ruled out of order. After his
cut-off criticism of Bishop Potter, they
were very much afraid Mr. Buxton
would say out in meeting "what good
men everywhere feel. Instead of cut
ting off Mr. Buxton they -ought to
have met him In debate if they felt
able to do so. But, instead of that,
Mr. Buxton was denied a hearing on

server. So Mr. Blackburn's claim of republi
can harmony in the eighth does not
appear to be based altogether upon
facts. It is known that Mr. Price had
a number of friends in the Wilkesboro
convention, andhe has many friendsr
all over the eighth district. Of course
some of them will vote for Blackburn,
but it is pretty safe to assumethat
many will not. Blackburn's attitude
toward Price and other leading re
pubicans in the eighth has not been
such as to secure for him their en
thusiastic support. The volcano Is

The Georgia papers are discussing
the question whether a man applying
for a license to marry should give a
bond of S850 with two sureties guar
anteeing his ability to provide for a
wife for one year. There is an old
dead letter law to this effect on the
statutes of .the state, and as late as
1850 such a law was enforced In Rich
mond county. "The interesting ques
tion." says The Augusta Chronicle,
"now is, was this law repealed? There
are those who think not. Others be
lieve it was repealed. To .satisfy their
curiosity attorneys of the city are en
deavoring to find out the truth. If
not repealed it is still a law. although

But, he did not expect it, fortunately.
It is supposed that had he not been

eight votes outside of the certain vote
