the voters of the State in the

the State Legislature in special
It is alleged that the passage of
the prohibition law was effected
in a radical and revolutionary
manner ; creates a ref erendurrTand
is in violation of the presen f orm
of government. Grounds of ille
gality alleged against the laws are
that the extra session of the Legis
lature had no power to ligislate on
any subject except railroad rates
and that the other subjeot was not
provided for in the Governor's call,
whereas the constitution provides
that the Governor shall specify
for what 'purpose he calls the

to delegate its powers and leave to

Judge Coolev is Quoted to the
Wisf Georgia Politicians.
Governoriloke Smith, of Geor
gia, naa been in omce a little less
than a year, and he is already in
the midst of a rather hot fight for
re-election. The Governor is
elected for a term of two years in
Georgia ; but he is brdihally given
a second term without a contest;
a fight for re-election is a very un
usual thins indeed. Governor
Smith was elected by a most
overwhelming majority, carrying
125 counties out of 145, and there
fore the opposition which he has
encountered is doubly remarkable.
His opponent is Joseph M. Brown,
whose father was Governor during
the civil war. and also represent
ed the state in the senate, Mr.
Brown was a member of the State
Railway Commission, and was re
moved from office by governor
Saith because their ideas about
reforming we railroads were not

politician in Georgia these days

hibitionist. When you do find
one he isn't in office. Don Mar
quis, in Uncle Remus's The
Home Magazine for June.
As every one knows, Smith was
badly defeated, and, of course,
Brown was elected. Various reas
ons are assigned for this great
change, but nothing seems to be
certain except the fact that Smith
