Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia 24 THE CONSTITUTION: ATLANTA. GA.. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1890. TWENTY-FOUR PAGES. ii CAPTAIN NESBITT SAJt TO BAX ABOUT THE JMXX Proposing: to Abolish tho Department of Proposed A bill in which very general interest is felt How in Georgia, ia that by Senator Vincent to abolish the state department of agriculture. In the senate, -where tbe hill originates, it 3s claimed by the supporters of the measure, that it ia pretty certain of passage. If this be true, the proposition is of aerious public importance, and the people of the state are called upon for an expression of opinion. COMJSJSSIOITiCIt NHSBITT TALKS. "There is nothing new in the character of the fight upon the said Com- missioner Nesbitt, "except possibly this argu- ment that the department is an expense to the atate. "It is true, I believe, that every other de- partment of the state government Is a public expense. The governor takes more from the treasury than be puta back; 50 does the school commissioner; so "with the treas- urer and the other statehouse officers. The whole machinery of government is an ex- pense, a necessary expense, upon the people. "But tbe department of agicultu.ro really puts more money into the treasury than it takes oufc It is more than self-sustaining, paying annually a considerable sum into the state treasury. "The money taken In aa fees by this depart- ment is not even an indirect taxgupon the peo- ple for it comes direct from tbe manufacturers, and in the long run the people of Georgia get their fertilizers at as Iowa price as the people of any other state ivhero such an inspection, fee 13 not paid by tbe manufacturers. "Incidentally, the farmers are they will be from now this inspection system, against the adulteration of oils and fertilizers. "To answer the statement of Senator Tin- cent, then, that the department is an expense, requiring more fpr its support than it pays hack to tbe state, nothing could bo further from the truth. The very opposite of this is notably true. "The general plan of the Georgia depart- ment is as good, I believe, as any state depart- ment of Its Jcind in tbe union. The trouble has been that the department failed to do what it might have done. The people had a right to complain. The inspection system was rot- ten, and failed wholly to protect them. The method of dealing with them altogether through these printed monthly reports was a mere form. Nino farmers out of ten never saw one from January to January. What they needed was a department that camo borne to that attended their fairs and local gatherings, and mixed and mingled with them. The commissioner of agriculture lias been as far removed from the farmers of tbe atate as the attorney general, or any other statehonse officer. "Now, I might say a great deal more on that line, going into details. I spoke and talked about that in more than eighty counties in the state during the campaign, but there is no need to stir it all up again. "But, as I said before, the opposition amongst the farmers of the state is reasonable and well- grounded. It ia based on what the department did, not on what it might have done. This can hardly be said to concern me personally at all, but in addition to this I have been com- pelled to make enemies in tbe can- vass and since then in my renovation of the department. I have made changes regardless of political or other such influences, and that has put a number of such influences at work against me personally. They are at work now decrying tbe department. have reduced a number of exorbitant salaries in the department and have made it a working department. The employes are to be paid reasonably for what they do, and not at all for what they don't do. "There are some changes to be made in the law. For example, as I have already recom- mended to the governor, there ought to be some sort of contingency fund for the depart- ment, so that glanders and other contagious diseases could he stopped. "Then, as to the inspection of fertilizers: To make the present system really effective would require a great many more inspectors. The bulk of the work is done in the first three months of the year. "I believe tbe best way is to keep a part of tbe present force of inspectors moving, like a sort of police force. Let them inspect the fertilizer in the farmer's TV agon, or at his home, to see that, as it is actually sold it comes up to the advertised standard. "Then again the standard of fertilizers nxed several years ago, should be raised. "I think I shall discontinue the printing of monthly reports and write letters from time to time as occasion requires. These will be pub- ashed in the country newspapers and go to the homes of the farmers. "As soon as the legislature adjourns, and I am able to leave the office, I shall spend nearly my whole time traveling over the state, meet- ing the farmers and making practical aeauaint- ance with their needs. fl3ithfthe U1ece33ary changes in the law. and force of working employes, I have no fear nor doubt of the popular verdict two years irom now. ''The department can be made a blessing and a benefit to the farmers. They have had reason to complain in the past. I don't be- lieve they will have in the future. That's all I can say bill of Senator Vincent." LOST HIS OVERCOAT. Judge Emory Spaor Writes a Letter to His Cousin. Some time ago Colonel D. N. Spoor, of this city visited his cousin, Judge Emory Speer, at the latter's suburban residence near Macau. While thera a thief entered his room at night quietly struck a match and was making himself at Uome, when tho colonel awoke.

Th rumor yesterday that circulated through th rdor I've got from the chief and the board is :o keep the people moving on. They must ceep a-walking when they strike this bridge.
