Joseph M. Terrell, New Sen
ator Frora Georgia.
Ex-Governor Joseph M. Terrell, who
has been appointed United States sen
ator from Georgia to succeed the late
Alexander Stephens Clay, will serve
until June, when the legislature meets.
Hoke Smith will become governor
again next June, and a man identified
with his faction will undoubtedly be
elected by the legislature to serve out
the unexpired term, which runs until
March 3, 1915.
There is a long standing feud be
tween Mrs. Terrell and Mrs. Hoke
Smith, wife of the governor elect.
When Mr. Smith became governor, in
succession to Mr. Terrell, Mrs. Terrell
refused to turn over the executive
mansion to Mrs. Smith until noon, em
barrassing that lady's plans for a re
ception in the afternoon. The recep
tion was held, however.
The new senator was bom June 6,
18G1, and received a common school
education. He is a lawyer, served in
both branches of the legislature, was
attorney general of Georgia, 1892-1900,
was elected governor in 1902 and re
elected in 1904. ne believes "white
men must rule the south."
Colonel Roosevelt is a friend of ex
Governor Terrell, who was instru
mental in having the home of the
colonel's mother at Roswell, Ga., re
produced at the Georgia building at

The ways through which we
have fastened responsibility for
Industrial accidents upon the in
dividual workman, the gro-'
tesque abuses of our "fellow;
servant" and "contributory neg
ligence" clauses in liability acts,
are heavy counts both against
our intelligence; and our sense
of fair dealing. The principle
that the cost of industrial acci
dents should be borne by the in
dustry Is so far advanced that
nothing can now prevent its
early acceptance. This social
izes responsibility, as our whole
Industrial life has , been social
ized. John Graham Brooks. '

LABOR OF CONVICTS.
Tends to Deprive Honest Workingmen
The convict contract labor system,
which is still in vogue in some parts
of our country, has many sins to an
swer for, but none surpasses in Its im
mediate consequences and remoter
suggestiveness the story we got from
a Texas town, says the Minnesota
Union Advocate. There the system is
in full sway and Is largely relied on by,
the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
railroad in its repair and construction
work. The company has about 200
convicts from one of the state prisons
at work on its right of way, and the
town is full of idle "free" labor from
the colder climates of the north, which
has gone there in search of work.
Numbers of the homeless, jobless,
hopeless "free" laborers are forced by
the conditions surrounding them to
break the law in order that they may
get food by, working on some convict
Our civilization has brought work
ingmen to a strange pass under the
domination of organized capital when
they find lawbreakers given preced
ence over them in opportunities for
employment and have to become such
themselves to escape starvation. Un
der such circumstances no one can
deny that it is high time for a change
in our system.
