Thc Democratic baud book, just
issued, shows that "nearly all of our
exhorts of iron and steel goods, i
amounting to ??lll,UU0,OUO last year, j
are sold to foreigners at about four
fifths thc price charged to Aincri- ,
cans." How's that for prosperity?
About the liveliest article in this
presidential race is Henry <?. Davis.

lt is stated that recently a mob of a
thousand citizens of Philadelphia,
l'a., chased a negro like a mad dog,
and, but for the calling out of the
police reserves, would have done him
to death, and all because thc negro
struck a white boy with whom he was
quarreling. Is there, after all, Sv/
very much difference between north
ern and southern "civilization" when
it cernes to the race question?

The farmer who ia out of debt, has
his corn crop in the crib, his stock
well housed and his larder well pro
vided with meat and bread, is in posi
tion of greater independence than J.
P. Morgan, C. M. Dcpew, or J. D.
Rockefeller, or any other fellow.
There may bc times when thc lot of
thc farmer is full of care and anxiety,
but most of them arc content and
very independent these days.
Thc Southern Cotton Growers' As
sociation held lately in St. Louis
adopted the Waco, Texas, ?dan pro
posed to maintain a stable market
and fair prices for cotton. This plan
provides for an organization of far
mers, business and Southern bankers
to build warehouses for storing cotton
and preventing a glut io the market.
The Association also adopted a reso
lution requesting cotton growers to
Bell no middling cotton below ten
oenta and to market the crop as Blowly
as possible during October and No

Recently a poll was taken in some
of the business institutions of New
York for the purpose of discovering
if the sentiment among business men
in favor of Judge Parker were increas
ing. It waB found that very many of
those who voted for Mr. McKinley are
going to vote for him, They gave as
their reasons that Mr. Roosevelt, if
eleoted President, would follow his
inclination to a far greater extent than
he has sinoe he has been President,
because he would feel he had been in
* dorsed by the people. Now he is
only an aooidental President. His
inclinations are so aggressive that he
would be likely to get the country
into a war, or do some other thing
that would unpottle business.
Governor Heyward has eommuted
the death sentence of Hoyt Hayes to
life imprisonment, and under all the
circumstances we think he has done
the proper thing. Hayes was con
victed of the murder of his wife in
Ooonee County. The first trial re
sulted in a mistrial after the jury had
been out all night, and at the second
trial he was convioted after a five
boure deliberation by the jury. The
Supreme Court last June refused him
a new trial. Hayes was convicted on
circumstantial evidence, there being
no other person about the premises at
the time but the couple. The State
failed absolutely to establish any
motive for the crime. The woman's
own immediate family who lived near
him testified that as far as they knew
Hayes and his wife loved each other
devotedly. The body was found ia
bed with the 'ace shot away, the hus
band notifying the neighbors that his
wife had suicided. A note was found
in tbe room which wes signed by the
deeeased, who declared that she was
treated well by her hu?band bat pre
ferred to die rather than undergo the
pain of motherhood. The question of
the guilt or innoeenoe of Hayes seem
ed to hinge upon the authorship of
this note, and Governor Heyward sub
mitted the note with a letter written
by the deceased, to David N. Carval
lo, one of the most distinguished
handwriting exports in America, who
gave it as his strong conviction that
the note was written by the woman.
The case has attracted a deal of at'ten
\ 4ion throughout the State,~ana the
V / Governor has received many strong
1/ letters for and against the prisoner
/ . from Oconee Count?. The. petition
for commutation was signed by over a
thousand and there was a counter
. ^gOtitioa signed by over 509.
