Hon. Gus Fite made one of the best, most exhaustive speeches ever heard in Dalton Thursday night to a good audience in the court house. He showed up the silly tissue of populism, and the utter absurdity of a turncoat like Felton going around abusing democracy and making false statements in regard to its record. He did not leave much of the populist windbags, and his speech did democracy good. Col. Fite is a wheelhorse, and no wonder Felton and Hines were afraid to face him.—Dalton Argus.
