dollars are gold coins that were minted
at Dahlonega, Ga., practically up to
the time of the outbreak of the war
between the States. Dahlonega is now
one of the summer resorts of Geargia,
and an educational town, and the old
citizens interest visitors by relating in-

Deputy Sheriff Wynne of Levy coun-
ty killed a negro on Thursday who had
resisted arrest and commenced shoot-
ing at the officer. The deputy had
learned that the negro was carrying a
pistol and went to the wood camp for
the purpose of arresting the party, but
when the negro saw him and learned of
his mission, he began firing at the offi-
cer. None of the bullets of the negro's
weapon took effect, however, and the
deputy, in self-defense, fired upon the
darkey with the above result. The
whole affair occurred near the Dutton
wood camp, which is situated in Levy
county near Meredith, so we were in-
formed, which is information that one
more killing occurred outside of this

county. -Gainesville Sun.

have already done considerable work
on the coasts and islands near the
mouth of our harbor, but they are now
preparing to reestablish the old marks
and meridians, which were located in
and about the bay and up the river
many years ago. The principal object
of these surveys is the keeping up of
the government charts and maps of all
important water-ways and the coast-

made from time to time as changes in

A recent Pensacola dispatch says:
According to letters received here by
R. Pope Reese, special assistant to the
United States attorney general, the
circuit court of appeals has upheld the
decision of the district court for the
Northern district of Florida in the
peonage case of W. S. Harlan, et al.,
which were appealed from here, and
the plaintiffs in error will be compelled
to serve the sentences imposed upon
them two years ago. The cases origi-
nated in the camps of the Jackson
Lumber Company, one of the largest
plants in the South, and the trial was
one of the most important of its nature
ever to occur in the'South. A verdict
of guilty was rendered by the jury and
sentences of from twelve to eighteen
months with heavy fines in addition
were imposed by Judge Swayne, now
dedeased. The cases were then ap-
pealed to the circuit court of appeals
at New Orleans and were recently
argued with a decision affirming the
lower court. Those who are to serve
time are Mgr. W. S. Harlan, eighteen
months; C. C. Hilton, S. E. Huggins,

This Planter has the best Guano sower yet made. It
will distribute with perfect regularity from 25 to 400 pounds
to the acre. It does not work up the Guano ina stickymass
but it forces out continuously just the quantity wanted. It
jsrpries and delights the operator by its smooth actions and
its simplicity. At one trip this planter sows Guano, covers
it, opens another furrow and plants in the most perfect man-
ar Cotton, Corn, Peas, Peanuts, Sorghum, Cantaloupes,
ean and similar seeds. The depthsdistance, and quantity
of aed are easily adjustable. It is light on one horse and
i easiest operated of all. This Planter we can furnish you
in four different shapes.

Also we carry the Avery and Hampton. If you are in
the market for something good, write for catalogue and
prices or call and see our stock.

and told his friends he would soon be
sweeping through the pearly gates,
and when the last came he called his
loved ones to his bedside and told them
good by and named a host of his friends
he wanted us to tell good by for him.
On the 1st day of February he was
conveyed to his last resting place at
Old Oak Grove cemetery in the pres-
ence of a host of sorrowing friends.
Funeral services were conducted by
Brother Moses Peterson. George had
never connected himself with any
church, though he died the death of a
Christian. He will long be remembered
by his friends, but they do not sorrow
as those who have no hope.
Dear friends, we will say that you,

young manhood or womanhood. Are
you ready as George was? If not, get
ready to meet him on the banks of

A recent little joke in these columns
in which we purposely confused the
identities of Billy Emerson, the fa-
mous white "nigger-singer," and Ralph
Waldo Emerson, the essayist and poet,
found its way out to Oklahoma. The
intellectual giant who "moulds" pub-
lic opinion through the columns of the
Enid (Okl) Events, saw the joke and
with rare perspicacity discovered in it
a violent expression of Southern intol-
erance on the negro problem. He was
moved to noble indignation and he
said in his paper, by way of preface:

their lies for enterprise.

The Law's Delay.
Under the above caption the Bartow
Courier-Informant "goes for" one of
the most notorious and harmful of mod-
ern evils as follows:
"The prevalence of lynching in this
country is a subject of regret to every
law-abiding citizen, and it has had few
defenders as a proper method of pun-
ishing crime. Its strongest defense,
or rather excuse, has always been, and
still is, the failure of the law to mete
out prompt and proper punishment for
certain crimes that arouse the deepest
passions of men, and for which the ex-
treme penalty of the law cannot be too
swift and sure. It is entirely safe to
say that until there is a radical change
in the administration of the law, Judge
Lynch will continue to hold court and
mete out substantial, if not "legal"
"We are all familiar with the halting
processes of the law, especially in the
cases to which we have referred, but
two case of recent occurrence have
impressed us with the belief that it will
be a long time yet before the law can
justify its condemnation of lynching by
increasing its own efficiency. The first
instance occurred in Texas, where a
man had been seized by a mob and was
saved from lynching on the solemn as-
surance of the officers of the law that
there should be a speedy trial and pun-
ishment for his crime. The promise
was not kept. The mob reassembled
and a lynching followed.

Maybe so, bt there are courts and
courts, and our plea is made to the
great court of public opinion where we
all have license to practice and the code
is not written. Its decisions are made

for the judges are very deaf, but they

then they decide the case'in terms not

is a stupendous task, but it is worth all
the time and labor it will cost, and
some day it will arrive, with or with-
out the aid of the lawyers.
Now comes a dispatch from some
point in Texas which gives the startling
and almost grotesque news that W. J.
Bryan had informed a friend in that
State that he was writing a novel which
he intended to dramatize and give him-
self the leading role. Mr. Bryan's
prompt denial of the senseless yarn was
hardly needed, but there ought to be
some way to get at the fellows who
send out such wanton lies and properly
punish them for doing so. Considered
as humorists they are asses, pure and
simple, and as news-gatherers they are
frauds and fakirs. The Associated
Press is a vast machine made up of
many parts and its management strives
incessantly for accuracy, but even its
unceasing vigilance is unable to always
shut out the pin-headed smart alecks
who mistake their idiocy for humor and
