The primary for solicitor will be
held some time in March. This will
be a very busy time for the farmers
and it is hardly probable that a full
vote will be polled. There will be
three or mour candidates in the race
and they are all good and true men
and -would make good prosecuting at
torneys, so th. race will be one of
personal popularity, and the state's
interest will not suffer whoever may
be chosen. Only one candidate has
so far placed his card in The Herald
and News, Mr. R. A. Cooper, of
Laurens. He made the race last year
against Mr. Sease and on his visits to
Newberry made many friends and if
no Newberry man runs will get a
good vote in the coxinty.
The cotton convention which was
held in Columbia on Tuesday was
composed of an able and rtpresenta
tive body of South Carolinians. They
were in earnest. They can accom
plish much good for themselve:, and
the cotton growing section by unan
imity of action and if they stick to
gether they have the key to the situ
ation. It all depends upon the far
mers themselves. The Herald and
News said several weeks ago that the
solution was to hold your cotton and
reduce the acreage. That is the so
lution reached by the convention and
with the bankers and merchants
working together and cooperating
with the farmers the proolem can be
solved but the farmers must solve it.
Less fertilizer has been bouth up to
this. time than in several years and
we believe the farmers are determin
ed to solve this question and to get
a better price for their cotton. It
will benefit them and every other in
terest in this section. When the far
mers are prosperous the rest of us
can hope to share in the prosperity.
In the death of Thos. F. Riley, of
Greenwood, not only that city and
county but the whole state has sus

fortunate to number as one of its
If the bad weather continues the

without an association or resoltcions
to that effect.
