Subject to an Indemnity
Mob law- was severely condemned by
Governor Atkinson in his message to the
Georgia Legislature. The messagt
bristled w ith a scorching and sensation
al attack upon the lawless spirit that
fosters the lynch law in Georgia. He
fays that to exterminate the practice of
lynching, the crime must be made odi
ous and shameful. He advoeater. strin
gent legislation against the mobs, and
insists that the Legislature pass a law
laying every county wherein such a
crime is committed subject to a large
indemnity to the relatives of the mob's
The Northern lynchers are spoken of
oy tne tioveruor. Of this he says: "It
is no excuse to say that the Northern
people, who have less to provoke them
to it, lynch. Let us not take them aa
a standard; but rather show a higher
type of civilization in our State, and
erect Uere a standard to which they
may aspire. '
Ihe Governor is iu favor of arming
the prisoners and allow ing them to pro
tect uiemseives Iroiu mobs. He says:
"The arresting officer i now clothed
wiui auinoruy 10 la lie a prisoner
110m ins custody, and, it is his duty
to take life, if necessary, to pro
tect the prisoner and retain him in
custody. This he should be required
to do at the hazard of his own life, or
me prisoner should be unshackled,
armed and given an opportunity to de
fend himself. The knowledge on the
part of the mob that this w ould be done
w ould deter it from pursuing its lawless
purpose, aud the law would be per
nutted to protect the innocent and
punish the guilty. "

Investigation Itelng Made.
President Depew's opinion that the
disaster on the New York Central F.ail
road was the result of a dynamite explo
sion planned by enemies of the corpor
ation finds many upholders among rail
road officials and citizens familiar with
ihe conditions. "If the embankment of
the railroad was torn no by dynamite,
the motive of those -who did it was not
robbery, but revenge. " was the state
ment made by one official of the road.
"A vigorous investigation is being
made, and at least one man may be ar
lested. A Rig Fire In St. Louis, Mo.

head torn open by falling debris.
Seven young ladies, employed in one
of the mailing rooms, climbed down
the tire escape. i
Some Sent to the Penitentiary, Others
Fined and Sentenced to the Chain
Gang. The most remarkable car robbery
:ase on record in the South came to au
end last week at talton, Ga., iu tho
Superior Court, Judge Alonzo Fite
presiding. During the past three
weeks eighteen robbers, charged with
systematically looting cars on the
southern Railway, extending over
a eriod of live years, have bee;i
tried aud found iruilty. The ring
leader, Walter L'ohannon, was
convicted ia five cases, and was sen
tenced by the court to ten years in the
penitentiary. His gang, Tom llinne
mau, Ren Rearce, Sam Paiuter, Lute
W hite. iiill Long and Ed Morris, tha
latter colored, received sentences from
three years to ouo year. Jim Harris,
the member 0 the gaug who turned
away, was net sentenced, and it is
probable that uuder the recommenda
tion of the superintendent of the rail
road, he will be released, or his sen
tence will be very light.
The merchants convicted of receivit.-
stolen goods from the robbers are as
follows, all prominent in business and
social circies in Dalton and north
Georgia: G. M. Cannon. T. P. J.
Peeoles. J H. Render. Anderson Gid-
oens, CleeCombee, it. W. lloran,

Roberts and Jesse Laugston.
Ihe court eenteaced all these mer
chants to pay fines ranging according
iug to their ability to pay, from Sl.ooj
Uowu to 52 i, and one year on the chain
gang, the latter sentenced to be sus
pended on payment of the fines and
costs. On account of the robberies, of
which these suits were the result, the
southern Railway seems to have 1 aid
damages to consignors amounting to
510,000 during the live years tho gau
were making their depredations.

for a young theologi -al student a stimu

but he told him to take only a small d .se
"a little wine for thv stomach's sake."
One of the. worst things about these
Three Taverns was that they ha 1 espe.-ial
temptation for those who ha I just come
ashore. People who had just landed at
Actium or Puteoll were soon tempt.-1 r y
these three hotels, which were only a little
way up from tho beach. Those" who nr..

disorganlzer), iiiste.-i 1 of waiting f r tin
gradual return of pliy.-i'al e ji, (poise, are
apt to tike artitlelal 'means to l.r.i .-e up.
Of th-? one million sailors now on the s.-a,
how few of them coming ashore will escape
the Three Taverns! Aft -r surviving hurr'
canes, cyclone. Icebergs, collisions, many
of them are wrecked in harhor. , 1 warrant
that if a calculation were nii). of tho ..en-
Jiarative number of sailors lost at sea an 1
ost asihore, those drun iieit bv the crimson
wave of dissipation would far outnumber
those drowned by the salt wa'er.
Alas! that the large majority of those who
godowuto the sea In ships should have
twice to pass the Three Taverns, namely:
Before they K) out and after thev come in.
That fact was what aroused Pat lier Tavl.u-,
the grent sailors' preacher, at the Sailors''
Bethel, Boston, and at 11 public miting ut
Cliarlestown h said, "All the machln.'i v of
