The Atlanta Exposition, which
opened on the 18th instant, is now
fully under way. We were glad to
note that, at the opening, both the
Christian religion and patriotism
were recognized. It is at such
great assemblages as this that the
quality cf the true nation is seen.
The anarchist, the atheist, and
other fools, have there no place.
Sometimes, as we read the foolish
gUes of socialihts and infidels, ac accompanied
companied accompanied by weakly prophesy ings
of, a few prominent newspaxers, we
are led to believe that the republic
is crumbling 2nd that chaos is
ahead. But when the sovereign j
people get together, the falsity of j
such a position is evident. Then j
it may be seen that the land is j
brimful of hope and confidence j
and that the Lord is our God. I
Then is perceived how meager is j
the minority of the scoffer at both j
our religion and our government.
We wonder that he does not see
it. He is small infinitely small

right line. The question of Sun Sunday
day Sunday opening has not even been
mooted. Amusements such as the
cruel Mexican bull light, have been
prohibited. Christian morals con control

can determine. Indeed, if it should
prove otherwise, it would be di directly
rectly directly in the face of the well well-recognized
recognized well-recognized conservative and re religious
ligious religious spirit of the sovereign peo people
ple people of our Southland.
Consequently, the exposition
promises much for the South. Of
course the greatest crowds will at at-tend
tend at-tend from this section of the Union.
But thousands will come from the
jreat North, Northwest and West.
And they will come with a pur-

the part of many, to spy out the
land with a view to settlement.
Never, since thd war, have the
-eyes of the home-seeker been di directed

So evident is this condition of
affairs that companies of inquiry
into the value of Southern lands,
in the interest of prospective set settlers,
tlers, settlers, have been formed in the
West, especially. And these com companies
