The Statements About Uid Treatment In

cratic executive committee of Georgia ,
says in reply to the published address
of General Weaver and various special
; elegrams which have been sent out
Tom Georcria bv Mrs. Lnnso. t.hn.t.
do great injustice , not only to the
Democrats , but to the people of the
state. lie says :
"According to his own admission
General Weaver received a respectful
hearing at Way cross and Columbus.
At Albany his speech was listened to
) y several hundred people , and no ef
'ort whatever was made to prevent
him from speaking. A prominent ne-
jro of that place , at the conclusion of
leaver's speech , took the stand to re
fute what he had said , and bitterly
attacked Weaver and the third
> arty. Weaver was so indignant
; hat a negro should attempt to
answer him , that he immediately left
, he platform. The only possible foun-
lation for the greatly exaggerated
egg stor3r spread broadcast by General
Veaver and Mrs. Lease is that a small
) oy in the open air audience at Macon ,
hrew an egg and he was prompt-
y arrested and punished for it.
Veaver's claim of persecution is noth-
ng more than an overworked eifort to
) ese as a martyr. His statements de-
iberately misrepresent the people of
5eorgia , and were cunningly devised
or campaign purposes. "

COLUMIIIA , Mo. , Sept. 29. The
weather crop bulletin of the Missouri
weather service of the state board of
agriculture for the week ending Sep
tember 21 says : This has been a week
of excessive heat and sun
shine. So little rain has fallen
that drought continues , and may
be said to have prevailed and
was detrimental principally to pas
tures , stock and prompt germination
of early sown wheat. Under the
above named conditions corn made
rapid advancement toward maturing.
The greater part of the plant is now
beyond damage by frost , and cutting
is general in southern counties. Much
of the wheat acreage has been sown ,
and much of what has come up is
being seriously injured by grasshop
