Th not unexpected entranct of Tom Hardwick into tht raca for Gov amor puta the patriotic people of Georgia on notice that the forcea which opposed the aucceaaful proat- cution of the war against Germany till persist in their efforta to get . control of Georgia politica. Hardwick,rwho at one time mia- repreaented thetate in the Senate of the United States, uaed every piower and Influence given "him by that treat office to prevent we aeno w nt BunDliea of food, clothing, arma and ammunition to the thous anda of Georgia boya then in France offericStheir Uvea aa a aacrifice to scotch the wheels of the German war machine then rolling across plaina of France to the conqueat of the world. Could the brain of the Devil him aelf have conceived a more infanv cms. a more diabolical acheme than this? What do the people who had husbands, sons and brothers facing the iron hail and aeeth-fire of the Ger man trenches think of this effort of Hardwick to deliver their patriotic aona into .the hands of the savage Hun? Hardwick's policy would have delivered them as prisoners of war to starve and die under the whip lash of Prussian taskmasters. The tattered remnant which would have remained of the American Expeditionary Forces would have returned to us with flags trailing in the dust of humiliation and defeat, had Hardwick's advice been followed. What think you, voters of Georgia, of the man who would have left your boys m the trenches of France with-08t food, without clothing, without arms and without ammunition, to fall prey to tha legions of the" autocratic Caesar of the Huns? While millions of bur bravest and best young manhood were in the army, and while millions on multiplied millions of true Americans were subscribing for vast sums of ''LIBERTY BONDS" to sustain the RIGHTS and the HONOR of American, this man Hardwick was skulking in the rear, hatching dark schemes to impede the successful prosecution of the war. Will the people of Georgia vote for a man of.. that stripe? If they do, the election of Benedict Arnold to the presidency of the United States after the eRvolutionary War would not have been so surprising. The beautiful .weather whlih hat obtained through this lection the pat week has seen much work on the farms. And now, friends, don't be gin o ge weak-kneed if it stays dry a little longer than you think ia best. Aa we've remarked before work all you can and have the faith and the courage to believe it will come right. FULL GEORGIA DELEGATION FOR PALMER. In accordance with the rules promulgated by th Georgia State Democratic Executive Committee before the presidential candidates had even Intimated their intention of entering Georgia's preferential primary. Attorney A. Mitchell Palmer will have the full delegation to the San Francisco Convention he having received a purality of the County unit votes in the primary. This announcement does not come either aa a surprise or a disappointment to loyal Democrats, for it it just a plain case of playing a fair game through on the rules laid down before the game started win or lose, taking their medicine like grown-up men. No one has any ground to complain in the premises., Palmer won, therefore Palmer ia entitled to the votea in Frisco and Palmer gets 'em!

Mr The statement of a prominent gro cer that there ia now stored in Chi cago sugar to the amount of several million pounds bears out the opinion held by many that there has not been any real shortage of sugar1 merely the stoppage of the movements of the supply in order to inflate the price. This ia the kind of profiteering that needs tows looked after, aa well as the petty thievery of corner grocery stores and cross-roads dry goods venders. THE VICTOR. "Did' you win your divorce suit?"

Gomeprs is not a fool, at that; and his words have not the hol low blatancy of the soap-box orator. Samuel Gompers words ring .with the seriousness of truth and have in their essence the heavy weight of a direct challenge that will not be disregarded. The two highest law-making bodies in the world hw rnade the government of a great nation their political play-thing; have squander ed millions of dollars in money andj montns oi the precious time of millions of people in worthless wrangling and cheap partisan political buccaneering all to the one end (on the Republican side) of trying to discredit a great man because a Democrat. And (shame to say it!) on the part of some Democrats, an effort to "put over" the next elections for that great party, regarless. Backache and Nervous Coluroaui, Ge.

Pbberg have found out that it is futile to try to realize on the proceeds of their roberriea when those proceeds consist of registered Liberty Bonds, Treasury Savings 'Certificates and War Savings Stamps. A box containing about $100 in cash and Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps recently was stolen from Mrs. Mar Hanson, proprietress of a Hotel in north Idaho, After all hope of recovering the Valuables had been abandoned, the box was fotfnd in a fisherman's seine. , The Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps were in tact as the robber evi dently had known that he could not hope to convert them into cash without proving his ownership, and had thrown them into the water as Useless to him.
