If what the Georgetown Times

?Strong Political Combine.
While Senator Tillman has never
said so publicly, there seems to be a
well developed notion in some quar
ters that he will fight Biease in the
campaign next year. The Sumter
Watchman and Southron says it has
been wandering what would be the
politfth.1 outcome of Senator Tin
man's and Chief Justice Jones' visit
to Mr. John G. Richards,
of Liberty ?and while we have
not yet found an answer, the follow
ing editorial in the Lancaster News
is somewhat illuminating.
"It is very gratifying to Judge
Jones' friends here to know that
their distinguished fellow towns
man is being urged to enter the gu
bernatorial race, and it is earnestly
hoped by them that he will be pre
vailed upon to do so.
"Judge Jones would make an
ideal chief erecutive. His irre
proachable private character and
spotless public record, his preeminent
ability, fine discriminating judg
ment and universally recognized im
partiality in the administration of
justice, his wide knowledge of men
and affairs, peculiarly and happily
fit him for the office of governor of
Ssnlh Carolina. v
"As a candidate for the office,
' Judge Jones would be irresistible. He
has no superior in the State as a
1 itump speaker. Ever cool and delib
' erate, quick and ready in debate, re
sourceful, firm and courageous, elo
quent and forceful in delivery, the
' jud,_'3 i3 a man few if any would care
? to tackle in public campaign."
j Commenting on the aoove the
Waterman and Southron says "if
1 Chief Justice Jones should enter the
race against. Gov. Biease, and if he
has the assurance of the support of
Senator Tillman, Mr. Richards and
their friends, Cole Biease will not
serve two terms as governor, all prec
edents to the contrary notwithstand

man and if the prohibition-local-op

of the campaign and the contest
made strictly on the merits of the
two men and on their official records

out to defeat Biease can turn the
Very Good Idea,
Mr. John Wood, secretary of the
Spartanhurg Board of Trade, has is
sued a call to about two hundred
representative citizens of Spartan
burg county togather in the rooms
of the Board of Trade one Monday
for the purpose of organizing a Spar
tanburg County Board of Trade. Mr.
Wood wantsi every township in the
county to be represented and in the
organization each township will have
a vice president and a member of the
executive committee, in his circular
letter to the farmers, asking them to
join in the meeting Mr. Wood, among
other things, asks the following

business with this organization. Come

want better telephonee' Don't you
want to keep some o? the money at

have the best county on earth? Do
you want to sell your land, Do you
want to trade? Don't you honestly be
lieve that we could do a thousand
things for-ourselves if we got togeth

The Greenville Daily Piedmont
says the idea of the Spartanburg sec
retary strikes us as being a very good
one if it can be put into practice. If
a city board of trade can accom
plish anything for a city we see
no reason why a county one should
not accomplish much for a county.
We shall watch with interest the re
sult of Secretary Wood's efforts in
his county board of trade scheme
We are satisfied that its possibilities
are great. It would brh:g the coun
try aud the county seat very close
together, and they could pull togetr
er and help each other in many ways.
Southern Railway Helping.
"To clothe the whole of humanity
would require ?12,000,000 bales of
cotton each year." This statement
was made by President Ilobbs of the
'National association of Cotton Manu
facturers, at its recent-annual meet
ing in Boston, Mass. Mr. Hobbs said
that of the 1,500,000,000 Inhabi
tants of the world only 500,000,000
are only completely clothed, while
750,000,000 are partially clotred and
250,000,000 are practically not cloth
ed at all.
As civilization advances, the pro
portion of the partially clothed and
the unclothed will decrease, and this
with the increase of population in
civilized countries, will call for an in
creased supply of cotton. The cot
ton belt of the United States now fur
nishes fully two-thirds of the world's
supply of cotton anad sti
supply of cot.on, and, as the demand
increases, will be called upon great
ly to increase its annual production.
It is a clear understanding of this
condition that has led the Southern
Railway company to organize a Cot
ton culture department, to work in
co-operation with the United States
asricultural department and the ag
ricultural authorities of the South
ern states, to keep the cotton produc
tion of the South abreast of the de
mand by bringing about the adop
tion or those cultural methods which
will result in larger avxearge yield
per acre thus increasing the profita
bleness of cotton growing and leav
ing surplus lands to be devoted to
other crops and the growing of live
It is clearly more profitable to a
farmer to produce fifty bales of cot
ton on fifty acres than to produce
pwpnnq eq? no }unotun 9Uius am
acres, for he will receive the same
amount for his cotton and will have
fifty acres for other uses. Under or
dinary circumstances, every increase
in the average yield of cotton per
acre reduces the cost of production
per pound and yields the farmer a
larger margin of profit between the
cost of growing his crop and the sell
