Jones, elected in another blank, po fax M T office is concerned, the laws being signed mly by tbe speakers of tbe house. This was the revolutionary war period, and erbaps one legislative house was as many as ouid be spared from service and kept together; quorum of them, through the trials and icissitudes of that stormy period. In 1778 Savannah was captured by >e British Colonel Campbell, becoming 10 royal or tory capital of the province, while he real capital was Augusta, or the nominal afor the British kept the legisla- nre and the capital both dodging in and out f there. So there is a blank in the list of presidents f the senate until 1789, when Nathan Brown- on was elected. He had been governor ot Georgia in 1781 nd '82, and reversed tbe usual order by going rom governor to president of tbe senate. He was re-elected in '90 aud '91. In 1792 Benjamin xiunty elected president. He waa re-elected in '93, '94. '95 and '96. Then David Emanuel, another county name, in '97, '98, '99, and again elected in 800. "While serving this last term he was governor from March 3, 1801, to November 7, 1801, The capital now was [Louisville, Jefferson ounty. The oldest senate journalin the state library s that of 1799, and it ia noteworthy tbat the ecretary of that senate waa William Robert- on. There's no telling how long 'be had al- ready been secretary, but when the record be- ins he was holding the place that Secretary Jill Harris holds now. He was re-elected in 1800. In 1801 a strange thing happened. One enator, James McNeil, was unanimously ilected president of the senate, but "arose in lis seat and declined to accept the office." Thereupon another election waa had, and iViUiam Barnett was elected president in his tead. That was the father of the venerable ecretary of state, N. C. it was n 1301 that the afterwards secretary of state was born. And William Robertson waa re-elected sec- He did not decline to accept the office. He accepted it. In 1802 David Emauuel waa re-elected, be- ginning his sixth consecutive term. Secre- ary Will Robertson was re-olected. Emanuel as re-elected in 1803. Jared Irwin was elected president of the senate in 1805. He bad been governor for two years ending in January, 1798, making the second ex-governor j who had held the posi- ;ion. i While he was president of the senate he be- came governor governor, because of a vacancy in the executive was then elected governor again for another term His successor as president of the senate was Edward Telfair, who had also boon governor [or a term, of two years, ending January It was while Telfair was president of the senate that the legislature convened for the first time in Milledgeville. The county of Telfair waa named after this president of the senate. In 1807 it was John Foster. In 1808, Henry Mitchell. Another county name. A great part of the record 1808 is taken up with a famous old impeach- of Commissioners Obadiab Echola Roddick Sims and Francia Flournoy, all foi malpractice in office. Henry Mitchell was re-elected in ith him, by the way, Secretary Will Robert- son was re-elected, in 1810 it was Jared Irwiu again; and Secretary "Will Rob- ertson again. In 1811 Matthew Talbot was elected presi dent of the senate. In 1812 William Robertson still being president, and i was the same in '13, "14, '15 and '16. It was during this latter term of office tha William Rabun became governor by theresig nation of David B. Mitchell. Then Rabun was elected governor, and hi successor as president of the senate was Matthew Talbot. Then Talbot became governor by the death of Governor Rabun. Here were two presidents, in succession stepping to the governor's chair. And notice again that these presidents of the senate bad each a county named after him. All this while, no matter how the office o president was shifted about, Will Robertson was secretary- In 1819 it became President John Foster, o Columbia county. In 1820, '21 and '22, it was Matthew Talbo Secretary Will Robertson. In 1823, Thomas Stocks, of Greene, was elected president. And another strange thing happened. Wil Robertson, the long-time secretary, diaappearec from the records. Gone I William Y. Hansel came in as secretary. In '24 and again in '25 it was President Allen B Powell, of Mclntosh, and Secretary William Y. Hansell. In '26 it was Thomas Stocks again, and Sec retary Hansell. Same way in '27, '28 and 29 In '30 it was President Thomas Stocka Secretary John A. Cuthbert. In '31 and '32 it was Thomas Stocks Secretary Iverson L. Harris. And tbat of 1831 was tb father of Secretarv Bill Harris of today. Secretary Bill Harris was a baby in Ion dresses then, having been born in ISoO. He fairly inherits the office. In 1833 it was President Jacob Wood, o Mclntoah, ard Secretary John A. Cuthber again. They were both re-elected in '34. In '35, Robert M. Echols was elected presi dent, and re-elected in '36, '37, '38 and '39. In 1840, Thomas Stocks was again electe president of the senate. In '41, Robert M. JBcbols of Walton, wa. president again, and he waa re-elected in '42 In 1843, Charles Dougherty, of Clarke was president. In '45 it was Ahsolom H. Chappell, of thi twentieth district. The senates, made up of a member from each county, went out of fashion. Thomas R. R. Cobb waa secretary of th senate of 1H45 and '46. Andrew J. Miller, of tbe twenty-second was president of tbe senate of '47 and '48. In '49 it was President William B. Wofford of the forty-third. Luther J. Glenn, father o Mayor Tom Glenn, waa secretary. In '51 it was President Andrew J. Mllle again, and Secretary Glenn. In 1853 it back to th old style of pne senator from each Hon. John D. Stell, of Fayette. In '55 it waa David J. Bailey, of Butts.

TSLJS TUB tttTZOjr The East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad will have an entrance into the union assenger depot on or about January 1st. And a prominent East Tennesse official w nthority for the statement. It is well known that the bitterest rivalry has for years existed bet ween the Western and Atlantic road and the East Tennessee, and hat through the efforts of the former road the alter has been barred out from the advantages in tho matter of creased passenger earnings to be derived rom an entrance to the heart of the business lortion of the city. Heretofore, passengers over the East Ten- [esseo have been landed at the little-station Mitchell street, and compelled to walk or iay extra fare to be transported to the big rotela. Afteroneexperience of thiskind.lthe passen- ger gave the East Tennessee the go-by, and >atronized only the roads that carried him to ;he common entrance to the principal portions of the city. In this way they have lost thousands of passengers who would otherwise have continued to give the road their pat- ronage. But all that is now to he changed. It is well known that the present lessees pive up control of the State road to the Nashville, Chatta- ooga and St. Loois railroad on December 27th. But it is not so well known that the Nash- ville, Chattanooga and St. Louis road is favor- able to the entrance of the East Tennessee. Such, however, is the case. Mr. John "W. Thomas, president of the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis railroad, during his recent visit to the city, was asked point blank whether he entertained any objections to the desire on the part of tho East Tennessee to use the common depot. His reply was of the most favorable character, and the movement has already been instituted. It is not decided on whose tracks the East Tennessee cars will roll into the depot, but the following plan has already been suggested and appears to be the most feasible: It is proposed that tho southbound train come in on tho Western and Atlantic tracks, unload its passengers, then baggage and the mails, and then back out to the Mitchell street yards, where the switching will be done and all through passengers taken care of. The northbound will come in on the Cen- tral tracks and -its passengers and cars dis- posed of in like manner. This plan has, as yet, met with but little, if any, opposition, and the prospects for its adoption seems at present to be favorable. If the entrance is effected, tho East Tennes- see people will pay a rental of per month. THE CIT.Y NEEDS. A PHENOMENAL BUSINESS j NOTHING LIKE IT EVER KNOWN- IN THE SOUTH. Mayor Hemphill Has Several Important Suggestions. From Tlie Evening Journal. It may bo remarked with confidence tliat Mr. Hemphill is going to make a good mayor. Ha is a fine business man, and he is going to devote nearly all his time and his best efforts to the high and re- sponsible position. It is well lor tho people that men like Mr. Hemplull are willing to serve the city in the mayor's cilice. He says of the city's needs for the nest year: "I think there is a great deal for tha nest coun- cil to do. Among the measures that I shall advo- cate is the opening up of certain sections that are now Inconvenient to get at. For instance, tHe western part of our city is difficult of access. This-' part of the city ought to have a better communi- cation with the business center. We ought to have more paved sidewalks. They cost but little and are a great comfort and convenience to tUe people who walk. "Grant park ought to have better and more convenient approaches. The Boulevard ought to have more connections with Pcachtree, and Pcachtree with street. Tho Fornyth street bridge to be built, so as to relieve the pressure Irom Broad street bridge. We ought to have two more in the northern and one in the -western portion of the city. Wo mubt have plenty of water to drink, and in sufficient quantity to supply all our manufacturers at low rates. Wo need to extend tho main trunk sewers, in order to protect our citizens from contagious and malignant diseasei "As tho preaeiit city cemetery is (filled up and practically abandoned, I am considering the policy of the city providing a new burying ground in place of Oakland, which it now owns. "We ought to have night schools for the chil- dren who have to work for their living during the "These are some of the measures that I propose to recommend to the city council." THE TWO BRIDGES Which tho City Council Will Called on to Bnild. Forsyth street must have a bridge. So must Broad street. The two bridges will cost in the neighbor- hood of De one pieces of work the next general council must tackle. The Broad street bridge is none too safe. And its condition is due to the great travel over it. With a bridge on Forayth street to divide the travel, the'structures would last twice as long. The Broad street bridge was built in 1873, seventeen years ago. It ought to have been good for at least thirty years. "And would, said City Engineer Clay- ton, "if tho travel had not grown so rapidly. That bridge was put. there for a smaller town than Atlanta is today. It is the only way to pass from one side to another, and has been aeavily taxed." The contract was let for the bridge in 18T2 and the work was completed early in '74. Hon. C. C. Hammock was then mayor. The street committee hav- ing charge of the work were Council men Young, McDuffie and McMillen all of whom are dead. The city engineer was Mr. Bass, who is dead too. Tho action of the city council in placing a policeman on the bridge wonld have been wise one some time ago.
