The Manning Times puts The
Times and Democrat down as one of
the country newspapers that follow
ed the l;ad of the two leading daily
newspapers in abusing Gov. Blease
last summer. So far as The Times
and Deriocrat is concerned there is
not a v. ord of truth in the charge
the Manaiag Times makes against it,
and we challenge the Times to pro
duce on-? word from The Times and
Democrat abusing Gov. Blease or any
other candidate in the Democratic
primary last summer, or any other
old tinii;. The Times and Democrat
did not support Gov. Blease last sum
mer, ncr will it support him next
summer, tut it has and will treat him
with the ijame courtesy and fairness
that it treats all candidates that
seeks the endorsement of the people
in the Democratic primaries.
Outlook i'oir Victory.
There is a feeling all over the
country that the T mocrats stand a
splendid chance of winning the Pres
idency in next year's election. They
may, but it will be no child's play
for them to do it. The Republican
party, notwithstanding the reform
pretensions of some of its leaders, is
just as much of a tool of the interests
as it ever was. and it will go Into the
Presidential election next year with
the biggest corruption fund ever con
tributed by the interests to control
an election. The money interests,
whether represented by socalled
Democrats or Republicans, will be
lined up to defeat the nominee of the
Eemocratic party unless it is allow
ed to name the candidate.
Let us look over the field and see
j what the Democrats will have to do
to get their candidate in the White
House. That party may count on
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mis
sissippi, Missouri, Nevada, North
Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia as
sure to support Its candidate. These
seventeen sure Democratic States
have an electoral vote of one hun
dred and eighty-one out of a total
of five hundred and thirty-one in
the entir e electoral college. This
would leave the Democrats lacking
! eighty-five votes to elect their candi
date. Where are they to come from
is tho question?
The Norfolk Landmark thinks that
if WJoodrow Wilson is nominated,
New York with 46 votes and New
Jersey with 14 ar-. virtually sure; If
Harmon is the nominee, Ohio with
24 and Indiana with 15 may be re
garded ns safe. Wilson's nomination
'eaves 20 votes to be secured and
Last year New York, New Jersev,
Indiana and Ohio all gave Democrat
ic majorities as did Colorado with
six electoral votes; Connecticut with
seven; Maine with six; Massachusetts
with IS; and Montana with 4. If
Harmon could carry New York and
any of the other states which last
year gave Democratic majorities he
could defeat Taft nnd if Wilson could
carry Ohio and any other state in the
foregoing list besides the two which
are credited to him he would be
In discussing the prospects the
Landmark says "the only one of the
five states which are not given to
either of the leading candidates that
could not be carried by the Demo
crats in a Presidential election is
Maine. Until 1S76 Indiana had been
Democratic as often as Republican
or even more frequently. It is very
likely that the Hoosier state will give
its vote to Wilson if he should be the
.nominee; similarly it is almost sure
that New York would go for Harmon
if he should be the choice of the
j convention. Ohio is doubtful for
any candidate other than her present
governor, while New Jersey could
harly be carried II Wilson is not the
"If this reasoning is correct, Wil
son would need 11 votes more than
he can depend upon and Harmon
would need one. Wilson could al
most certainly carry Connecticut with
seven votes and would have an ex
cellent chance of winning in Montana
which gives the exact number requis
ite for a victory. Harmon would have
a better than even opportunity of
carrying either Maine or Connecticut,
On the whole, the Democratic pros
pects with either of the leading as
pirants looks vastly better than the
Republican, especially if the stan
dard bearer is Taft as now seems al
most a certainty." The Landmark's
estimate leaves out of the calucla
tion all the middle west States where
the Progressive Republicans are most
numerous. Some of them will vote
with the Democrats next year.
Coming of the Boll Weevil.
TIu> boll weevil is coming and the
farmers of South Carolina may as
well make up Lheir minds now that
in about three years from this time
the pest will be wit's, them. Accord
ing to the scientists the boll weevil
tiavels about seventy miles a year,
not a rerj fast pac-^ but they are
sure to s^- here in ti:?:?.-. T >9 At
lanta Journal says wheresoever a
couple of these little immigrants
make their habitat, they soon boast a
family of several millions and then
a tribe of many, many billions. The
fact is. a day is as a thousand years
to the boll weevil.
It means a great deal, therefore,
when the scientists tell us that this
I most dangerous of all enemies to
j the louth's cotton crop is crawling
through the bouthem counties of
j Alabama at the rate of seventy miles
a year that within the next twelve
months it will probably have encom
passed a score or more additional
counties in that state and that by
1012 it will have crossed the borders
of Georgia, and will be on the march
to South Carol. >a.
The Journal goes on to say that "it
is in the early autumn that the boll
weevil begins bis march forward to
new territory. Tho entomoligists and
farmers are accordingly on the look
out for signs of his advance. Thus
far, there has been no considerable
evidence of his having got a hold up
on Georgia. Rut there is every evi
dence that he is headed in this direc
tion and that unless timely measures
of defense are taken, this state will
suffer no less Cran her neighbors to
the south and west.
"There is every reason to believe
that this menace can be averted, or
at least minimized by due precau-i
tions. In this connection, State En
tomoloyist Worsham is carrying on a
vigorous campaign of education. It
is gratifying, too, to note that busl-|
ness men, as well as farmers are an
swering the call to arms. Certainly,
there is no movement that should
claim heartier cooperation from all
the people, for millions of dollars
worth of cotton are at stake."
There ought to be a large gather
ing at the coui .house on Monday of
Orangeburg county citizens of every
walk In life, particularly of the far-,
mers, to discuss the cotton, situation.
The present price of cotton is ruin
ous i0 nearly all business in this sec
tion of the country. Monday's meet
ing may not be able to accomplish
any great things, but the people can
show their interest in a matter that
so vitally concerns them, and every
little helps in a public movement like
this. Let the people attend and seej
and hear, even if they cannot advise.
As the Newberry Obesrver says "one
trouble with our people is that they
stand off from public movemeuts and
expect others to do the work." The
price of cotton concerns all and
we should all do what we can to help
the farmers win his fight against the
Wall street sharks that are trying to
plunder him out of his cotton. In
the language of the Observer " lets
try to get together In the town and
country on all matters of public in
terest. There is no telling what may
be accomplished by 'a long pull, a
strong pull and a pull all together.' "
So be sure to be at the meeting at
the courthouse on Monday morning,
a.nd help along the movement to bet
ter the price of our great staple.
Goes to Higher Court.

Alligators by Wholesale.
The Journal says Messrs. P. T.
Byrd and J. L. Edwards caught twen-;
ty one alligators in a bed on the bank
of the Edisto river Thursday last.
The mother alligator was about twel
ve feet long and was killed by the
sherman when she attacked their
boat while they were capturing the
little ones. The little gators are
about twelve inches long and were
all brought to Branchville alive.
