Bdltor The American: The writer
noticed lately In a certain dally paper
an account of the municipal election
in Augusta, Georgia., In which it la
elated that votes were "paid for open
ly, tome of the voters securing as
much aa $10." Now, this paper does
not print the account with any
to create excitement as It is in a spirit
of regret the language Is couched.
The editor had, the day before, on
learning of Patrick Walsha election
over Judge Dunbar, congratulated Mr.
Walsh, and after having learned of the
corrupt practice at the polls, gives
forth a rebuke In plain words. What
are they going to do about It, we won
der? And doubtless we may just keep
on wondering, for ours Is a wonderful
And the same paper alluded to
gives out the statement that Judge
Seaborn Reese Is threatened with an
other "hauling over the coals" for
having "been drunk on the bench and
oft." Some time ago, It will be re
membered by the reading public, that
Hon. Yancey Carter and others were
the cause of an "Investigation" held In
Atlanta, of charges of a similar na
tore against Judge Reese and Judge
Swett, only the latter worthy had "1m
morality" tacked to the tall of his
robe in addition. Both of these judges
are said to have had their characters
"vindicated," but in Judge Reese's case
it seems that the "jedge" cannot arise
and say "this is the same oP drunk,
gen'lmen." It seems he has been do
ing so several times, and just keeps on
doing so, and trying to preside In
court when he is unfit to be anywhere
but at home, hidden out of sight, It
all these things be true.
The writer, however. Is not trying
to put odium upon the good old state
of Georgia, for what may be true in
Georgia, is true of the whole coun
try. The whole body of our dear Co
lumbia is sick very sick and needs
Doctor Reform mightily, with all the
remedies he can muster, for the de

Mrs. Partington would have said, "an

And that la enough to break down the
constitution of any mother.
She knows that there ought to be
reform In her courts in her laws
' and that none but honest, respectable
sons should be allowed therein. In
Justice to the rest of the family. She
knows that there are hundreds too
many "young snips" admitted to the
bar and there are bars and bars

admitted to the kingdom of Heaven,
and Scripture says nay to that last
The condition of things anent the
courts of our land is enough to make
the hair crawl off the back of a dead
man's head with disgust If he's got
hair enough to crawl In these bald'
beaded days. To read of crime and
the ever-increasing diabolism which
marks Its onward march. Is to feel
the forebodings of doom to any coun
try which makes it possible for such
fiends to escape swift punishment.

The writer truly believes that the
establishment of an A. P. A. lodge in
every town and city In the land would
have as healthful influences upon the
people generally, for it would be like
patting up Robbie Bruns' advice in
plain sight:
"If there's a hole in ae yere coats,
I rede ye tent it
A chiel's among ye takln' notes, an
faith he'll prent it."
No scoundrel likes to be found out,
and there must be a deal of scoundrel
ism where the courts are so crowded
with these young law-whipper snap
ners, whose sole ambition Is to be "
criminal lawyer."
"Better be a dog and bay the moon
than such a lawyer.
And this is clear as clear as God
ewn sunshine; any man who knowing
ly takes a guilty man's case and de
votes his entire time and all his en
ergies to prove that man innocent. Is
a scoundrel, for he is dishonest and
liar, no matter how "eloquent" he may
be. And such men should be deprived
of all right to practice law, for if they
do their utmost to clear a murderer,
then they would do any vile thing so
long as they believe escape from the
law were possible for them. We need
a reform in lawyers oh! badly urgent

in the courts. Draw that poisonous

The "mystery of iniquity had been at
work before and the elements of
popery in operation, but no formal
public act had been performed by
which the bishop of Rome was made
supreme, but when the title of pope
was asked, given and accepted "the
son of perdition" was revealed. This
took place A. D. 606. when Boniface
the III, ascended the papal throne. He
got the title through the aid of the
emperor Phocas, a cruel and blood
thirsty tyrant who had made his way
to the throne by assassinating his pre
decessor. Boniface asked for the title
of universal bishop and this profligate
emperor granted it, and that system
of corrupted Christianity and spirit

was fully developed. AH of the popes
of Rome have worn this blasphemous
