Athens Banner Watchman (Newspaper) - December 23, 1884, Athens, GeorgiaA by dwt a a Vic v a. I a .0.1 , ft.-. a a of Eiton a proposed reformatory school for convicts. The Bill introduced by or. W. Ii. Felton in the legislature to is Tali in a in Georgia a reformatory it Honl for female and juvenile con Trust and believe will notes. This Bill purposes that All no and also youths under l3 Vars of age. Instead of being sent to the regular Camps be kept to i Chi selves in an institution modelled tier the Rel oratory schools of >., of the Northern states. The my Nate Are to be educated Given training and required to la a work Between times. At the age of to the males Are to be Tut m in Over to the lessees to com a in i the their term of sentence.

Xxxi digrifyin6 female labor. I the Bill introduced in the House a by Hon. Martin v. Calvin of Richmond and which passed that body authorizing the clerk to employ ladies As assistants was one of the most just and sensible measures Ever enacted. It will go a Long ways toward encouraging females in making an honest livelihood and casts a respectability and dignity upon such efforts that nothing else can is Rosart. There Are few channels in the South open to our ladies by which they can earn a support and these Are All crowded to suffocation. Before the War when our people were Rich and prosperous there was no necessity for our women to toil and As a consequence there has Ever since existed a prejudice against this sex assuming any duties that men could discharge. Or. Calving a Bill will go a Long ways toward removing the Barrier for the highest tribunal in our state has proclaimed in favor of the move. It will give encouragement to thousands of poor to. Men to seek employment and its a manhood Ami then con. F v. R i. A i r glorious effect will be Felt All Over i i in to the company of the a a. A the land.

In Ghi Ules should never be Pardo d. And education is a very a Sele attachment in a convict Camp. �?T1 a i pay age old. Felton a Bill would he a curve to Georgia and loll would see his reformatory school rivalling the Lunatic Asylum 1., inmates and costing the state of thousands annually. In Lack believe the negroes Mould so on look upon it As a sort of wit Point for their race and hold Coli Petrlic e examinations in crime among their sons to see who will be i minted. Older Heads will use juvenile scape goals to perpetrate their Villa inies knowing that they will not he punished. The topic seeing that they Are Given no Protection would soon take the Law into their own hands and shoot Down these outlaws like ravenous . The country would be demoralized and no Many a property Safe. It is Only the knowledge of certain and speedy punishment that i crime and or. Felton a school removes this dread. In the North where the White population so largely predominates such institutions doubtless do Good but Down Houth where our prisons Are filled with ignorance and brutality it will work great and irreparable harm. We do not doubt the purity of i it a. Felton a motives and consider him a charitable Christian gentleman and cannot think that he will insist on the passage of his measure after weighing ail its bearings. We believe in treating our convicts with humanity and mercy hut at the same time the peace and order of the country must be preserved at All hazards. must be made a place of Abhorrence not a downy bed of ease Here the scum of society can return for a season and be pampered and fed at the expense of the Law holing masses. Great Reform carried still further. There Are plenty of positions in the state departments that can be creditably filled by female employees. Why not make a lady state librarian and pay her that is Soo salary what a godsend it would a be to some educated and cultured lady. Can not col. Henderson in his department provide a few ladies places As likewise other Pablic officers this talk about a woman being incapacitated for such tasks is All Moonshine. They Are just As faithful and efficient As the lords of creation and Are certainly entitled to every assistance and Protection that can he bestowed. We want to see another Hill passed to prevent such unjust discrimination against women in the matter of salary. You May take that pm the prohibit a Biu. For c Larue i the Bill drafted by Hon. R. B. Russell and thay passed both the House and it Senate a providing for an election in the City of Athens and clarite"1 county on prohibition has and a is Tih a creating a great Deal of discussion Quot on the streets. The principal objection urged to the measure is that it does not give the whisky men sufficient time to those out their stocks and would result i serious injury to this class of our citizens. By a casual Reading of the Bill this seems to be the Case and considering the Point Well taken withheld the endorsement of our paper until the matter was cleared up. But tuesday night or. Russell learning about the trouble came to Athens and think has entirely demonstrated the fact that a wrong interpretation has been put upon the Bill. This gentleman states that the act especially provides for this trouble by leaving to the option of the Ordinary the time allowed the liquor men to prepare for the change. He says if necessary that officer can wait twelve months before declaring the result As no specified time is allowed him. This to us seems As fair a it any one could ask. Even the prohibition element in our Midi have no desire to injure the liquor dealers As they ate All Good a abiding citizens and have the sympathy and respect Jot our people. While they look upon the Sale of ardent spirits As a great injury both to the City and its people at the same time they want the evil abated in such a manner As to work the least injury possible to those engaged in the traffic. While shall advocate and vote for prohibition at the same time will insist that ample time be Given the parties most effected by the change to close out their stocks and look around for some other Pursuit there Are also urged in opposition to or.

We do not to interpret it employer. In looking Over the re and Only throw out these hints be port of the Public school system of Lieving that the drafter of the Bill Atlanta find that while the male can Clear them As easily As the principal is paid $1,600, the Laily clause about dealers. There who has More work to do plenty of time to understand this and has a charge of a greater measure before it is voted upon number of pupils is Only Given and for the Good of the cause $1,200. They Are equal in Educa want to see it thoroughly Analysed tion and every of her requisite and and dissected so that when the have the same responsibility Battle of the ballots begins the Only now is there any Justice or fairness question before the people will be in such discrimination say if shall suppress the liquor traffic a woman a work is Worth a a much in a manner to work the least in As a Many a pay her a Many a wages jury possible to All classes of. Our do not take advantage of their population As yet there is no weak and helpless condition to Rob hard feeling engendered Over the and oppress them. Where is the Issue but simply an honest Dif boasted chivalry of the South let Ference of opinion. We Trust and us talk less about gallantry and believe that to the by of election practice it More. We want to see state of affairs will the old prejudice against women continue to exist. It is better for occupying Public offices and earn both sides that they meet and dising an honorable living removed cuss the question in a kindly spirit and the legislature can and should tor by that Means matters can be so do the work. We Are opposed to arranged As to work the least harm so called Strong minded women and to dealers. This is not a War All the other isms calculated to against the parties engaged in the bring our females into undue Noto liquor traffic but an honest oppose piety and publicity. Such doctrines tion to a the prohibit have never found a foothold among zionists conscientiously believe to the ladies of the South and never be a curse upon the land. If will. But do want this sex mistake not there Are 96 counties in encouraged and protected in their Georgia that have expelled liquor rights to compete with men in eve from their Borders but none with cry avocation of life. Or. Calvin 0 urge s Trade Centre As Athens has taken the first step toward this hence the result in Clarke will he revolutionizing March of Justice looked Forward to with Peculiar in and his name will Ever remain Terest and believe that if our Green in the hearts of the women of people vote prohibition it will give his state. God Speed him in his the Temperance cause a ground glorious work say now that swell that will speedily result in the ice is broken let him carry the driving the traffic from our Borders Reform to its utmost Bounds until Are free to confess that it would from one end of Georgia to the oth be much better to have you will see our ladies following with credit to themselves and Honor clean sweep at once and for All time their state lucrative and response to come.

Evidently the committee did not make a full investigation and ascertain All or. It decided to suppress what it found out. It a Well known Here that the Campa of Lockett amp co., in Fulton county j were in such a notoriously bad condition that the governor was on the Point of forfeiting the lease and ordered the immediate discharge of . Lockett a son of b. G. Lockett who was superintendent of the Camps. Tire a committee refers to these and other facts in the following mild language Quot a a there has been Souie complaint As to the management and sanitary condition of the Camps / in Fulton county but after a thorough investigation by two sub committees think no blame attaches to the present lessees especially since the enforcement of certain orders and regulations by our worthy governor and principal keeper. In the face of that the committee gives these figures 1 Nam bar of coast ctr at Lettu l camp_190 egg my.

As a matter of Justice to the authorities feel it our duty to state that said Dock Jackson is now in Fulton county jail under a charge for said offence and that another guard by the name of Wyly is under Bond charged with being accessory to the killing of said f.
