Luce, prior to his nomiuation and election as governor, was a recognied prohibitionist," says the Center. But the Center true to its " prohibition " instliicts, did its best to defeat Gov. Luce -on principie (?) of course. It is possible that man y people may not know that on and after next Wcdnesduy the legal interest in this state will be but six per cent.

This is rather a significant adnii.ssion for a Massachusetts paper to make. The comments of northern papers on the proposed law tnaking it a penal offense to edúcate white and colored chlldren together, has mude the Georgia legislature recede from its coutcinptible position, and so the law did notget through.

About equal to stealing peach pits in Michigan! And tliia Is the "justice" of a sectlon of oountry where a man pretends to place his "honah" above 1 i fe. Oh!
