The Democra- s and Insurgent Re

a deep hole, by passing the wool bill.

According to o.Ticials who have ex

blown up by an explosion on the out

never believed that the ship was
blown up in a? y other way.
Railroad Co .i nissioner Richards
has already slkd his castor in the
political ring and the indications are
that he is ben.j groomed to walk

If he attempts it there is going to be
a red hot fign:, with the result, in
our opinion, d< ubtful.

Over here in the United States
wfbere the p jople are said to be su

cus of the Democratic members of
Congress, v hile in Canada, where
the people a *e the subject of a king,
thej are called on to say at the bal

"Which is th j most Democratic coun
Mr. Brya i holds that a secret cau
cus of Con rressmen is undemocrat
ic and adnt erous. He says "the se

cret ballot protects the individual in
his right t? vote as he pleases be
cause he i c:s for himself. But a

Mr. Bryan s on the side of the peo
ple and tht refore right.
Congress nan Hull, of Tennessee,
in discuss! jg tariff revision in the
House, wh: ch of course, he favors, as
all good D niocrats should, predicted
that with Republican promises for
re-sloraton of prttection rates,
Oi^re will be the greatest fat frying
next year 'n the history of the coun
try. He s.-.ys Republican promises to
re-raise th i tariff, if restored to pow
er will ai ain be made a pawn for
millions to buy the American elect
orate if possible.
The so-'ailed tariff board is noth
ing more than a political hypocrisy,
desimed o delay tariff revision as
demanded by the people and the
Democrat: are right in not paying
any attertion to it. As Congress
man Hull said in a speech advocat
ing tariff revision, former President
Roosevelt stayed the tariff storm by
"Orowin;. firebrands into the air. so
that the people would not notice
ibose fal iiig on their heads." But
the people can't be fooled much
The Columbia Record seems to

strong R spublican party in the South

Turn in the Cotton Crop.
The cotton crop, says the Weekly
Augusta Chronicle, is now in the
uncertain period. Bulls and bears
are making it up to suit their own
purpose and millions are beng fleec
ed from one side or the other while
nature goes on with its unswerving
plans. The cotton crop of tho South
has ^unquestionably been up to the
t?p-notch during the past two months
but now it is. beginning to sh ? w yel-1
low- leaf and the first bolls are open
ing, betokening the end of the grow
ing season. All arguments of bulls
and bears will not affect the nation's
output and in the end the price will
be governed by the supply and the de
mand. It is perhaps an inexorably
hard thing that supply and demand
should govern things in general, for
there are some people who believe
that supply should be limiteu to de
mand and others who are of the op
ion that demand should equal sup
ply year after year, not only in cot
ton, of course, but in all things.
The farmers, however, should be
virtualy masters of the situation in
cotton. .They should tiffing them
selves to realze that farmr.g is an
occupation that is just as independ
ent and as much a business proposi
tion as anything else. You cannot
get a s-upply man to furnish the ma
terial for less than it cost him. Con
sequently why should anyo:;e ask a
farmer to supply his products for less
than they cost, especially if he be a
good farmer and grows his crops
along the Tight plans.
If sysem was nstalled in farm
I ing just as it is in many business
enterprises today it would show a
vast difference in the result to the
South. The land of the farmer is
valued too cheaply in the South and
if it were up to the high figures of the
Middle West there would be a big
balance on the wrong side of the led
ger. And did you ever stop to figure
too, that if the right kind o\ farming
is followed in the South the ultimate
result will be as good as tha any
It is only where the wrong kind of
agriculture is pursued that the wrong
kind of results are obtained. If you
diversify and plant the crops needed
at home you will be in position to
withstand any kind of weather, so
to speak, that may come your way.
But the great lesson to be borne in
mind is that farmers throughout the
cotton belt are the ones whom the
world has to depend for clothing and
they should receive a proper price for
it or hold on until it is paid.
Admitting that the country does
make a good cotton crop this season
there is no reason why the crop
should be sold cheaply, for the mar
kets of the world have been depleted
and the supplies exhausted . It
may he years again before another
big crop is made and if that be the
case it will be a good idea to store up
some for the next season and don't
go downward, for it is cheauer to do
that than it is to sell it at a price be
low the cost of growing it. It wilt
certainly be better to do that than
to go ahead';and raise an expensive
crop next year. Just simply save
some for the nexxt season and don't
pay any attention to the demands
made at low prices. (
There's another phase to the situa
tion too now that is the real results
of the crop. While it must be ad
mitted that crops have turned out
well to date the critical time is just
at hand and the latter part of July

Cholera Will Be Stopped.
The cholera situation is well in
hand at New York, and there is no
cat- e for people to become alarmed
about the spread of the disease. No
new cases have occurred in several
days and those under treatment are
doing as well as could be expected.
Of course wherever thc.^e is disease
there is danger, but that is true of
other diseases besides cholera.
The best personal safeguard
against cholera, and for that matter
against most diseases cleanliness,
igood habits, c re of diet and absence
of fear. Perhaps there is nothing
more calculated to make a person
fall a victim to disease than fear,
and when the community gives way
it an outbreak of cholpra or plague
there is usually a great havest of

sanitation and medical science have
made such progress in recent years
that in civilized countries yellow fev

tirely stamped out, and that, if per
chance, a case or two occurs the
outbreak is almost invariably con fin

patent and with the strict quarantin

York will with out doubt, control the
Menace to Liberty.
Something over one hundred years
ago our forefathers would not bend
to the arbitrary rule of George the
Third, and the present day sons of
those fathers have to see to it that
they will not submit to another yoke,
which though different in iharacter
will be none the less galling and of
fensive. That possible yoke lurks
in the control of well nisrh fabulous
wealth by few individuals. Such
ionrentrated power is a menace to
government and to real liberty. To
be sure the people generalh* nnd
some legislatures art? awakenin:? to
that fact and it is also true that
something has already been done to
curb these gigantic monopolies. But
still more needs to 1 ?? done in order
that the true interests of the nation
may be safeguarded. That this will
eventually come about is beyond
question, but the struggle will be
hard and keen, and the longer it is
put off the more difficult will be its
