r In Interesting Question. r;
Atlanta, Jan. 20. If a nian de
iberately spits in he plate ffom
whiohyon are eating, does -that
justify you in killing him? If
you ' onghn't to kill him, - what
ought you to do? And if you do
kill him what is a reajonabie
punishment for the homicide? -
These interesting questions are
being pondered most seriously by
Governor John M . Slaton, and
will have to be answered by him
shortly. , Not that anybody has
spit in his plate. Perish the idea.
If anybody v had, the governor
would probably have killed him
first and figured it out afterward,
at least he might have. But this
case relates to a poor negro whom
the governor met and talked to
on the State prison farm.
He seemed to be a cood ne-

He sought out the governor to
ask him for clemency. He said
he had never committed any other
orime, and that he wouldn't have
killed the man if he hadn't been
jes' bleeged to do it."
Why did you kill him?" the
governor asked, and the negro
'Well, him an' me was working
on a job in Savannah, an' wheu

over my plate. An1 I tole him

TheBe .600,000 voters have already

the Republicans after leaving

All the same, the admonition
of the Record is in seison. The
signs all point to a Democratic
victory, but it can only be won by
wise legislation by the present
