BRYAN BOLTS HEAD OF
WON'T SUPPORT DEMOCRATIC
CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR.
Declares That County Option Belief is
Sole Reason for Breaking Personal
and Political Friendship.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 20.-In a state
ment in which he declares that the
crusade which he feels impelled to
wage against the liquor interests of
the State and nation overshadows a
personal and political friendship of 20
years, William J. Bryan this evening
announced that he had bolted the head
of the Democratic State ticket in Ne
braska and would not support James
C. Dahlman for governor. Mr. Bryan
says he regrets that he is compelled
to take the stand he does-his first
departure from political regularity
but says he feels it his duty to do so
because of position taken by the Demo
cratic nominee on the liquor question.
The statement, which is, in a way, in
an apologetic tone, does not indicate
that Mr. Bryan will support the candi
date of any other party, but announces
that he is a prejudiced advocate of
county option and the early closing sa
loon law, both of which he says are
ifienaced by Mr. Dahlman's candidacy.
The statement is as follows:
Will Support Others.
"I am just leaving for Missouri and
shall be absent practically all of the
time for about a month campaigning
in Missouri, Iowa, Indiana and Illinois.
After that I shall be at liberty to
speak for Mr. Hitchcock, the Demo
cratic candidate for congress, and for
the State ticket in Nebraska.
"I regret speaking for the State
ticket, however, I shall not be able to
present any arguments in favor of the
election of Mr. Dahlman. His posi
tion on the liquor question makes that
impossible. I regret this exceedingly,
for he has been a political and per
sonal friend for 20 years and it would
give me pleasure to speak for him if
I could indorse the policy for which
he stands, but he has chosen to make
the liquor question the paramount is
sue and makes his appeal on that is
"In spite of the fact that the last
Democratic State convention voted
down a declaration against county op
tion by a vote of 638 to 202, he says
that he will veto a county option bill if
passed, and in spite of the fact that
the State convention indorsed the 8
o'clock closing law by a vote of 710 to
163 he announces that he will sign a
bill repealing it if such a bill is pass
ed. He is making his appeal on non
partisan lines with the liquor question
as the sole issue. His courage is to be
commended. It is an honest way of
making a bampaign although it com
pels him to separate himself from
friends who do not agree with him and
to rely for support mainly upon those
Democrats and Republicans who take
his view of the subject.
MIay End Fight.
"Possibly it is just as well to have
the issue clearly presented so that it
may be settled this year instead of
two years hence. Troublesome as the
question is now, it would be even
more embarrassing if presented in.
1912, when we have a presidential
election on hand. If Mr. Dahlman is
elected it will be a declaration by the
voters of the State against county op
tion and against the 8 o'clock closing
law. If he is defeated it will be a de
claration in favor of county option and
in favor of 8 o'clock closing law. In
other words the voters now have an
opportunity to decide whether the
State shall go backward or forward on
the liquor question. To present ar
guments in favor of going backward
would not only contradict what I have
already said on the subject, but would
embarrass me in the fight that I ex
pect to make hereafter to save our
party from the odium of being the rep
resentative of the liquor interests."
Various Agencies Work for the Better
ment of Agriculture. ,
Columbia State, 21st.
There will be more winter cover
crops planted in South Carolina this
fall than ever before. The work of
the various agencies working for bet
ter agriculture in the State is quite no
ticeable. Last year notwithstanding
the dry fall and spring, there were
hundreds of successful fields of vetch,
bur clover, crimson clover, red clover
and alfalfa. The majority of these
were planted under the supervision of
a government agent. and were so sat
isfactory that the area will be greatly
extended this year.
A. G.- Smith, scientific assistant of
the United States department of ag
riculture, gave specific directions for
planting over 300 fields of these crops
last year, and this year he is continu
tion of the State. Specific directions
for planting any of these crops can be
secured by addressing him at Colum
bia. He .has already given directions
for over 150 fields this season. These
advise the farmer every step in the
process, and tell him where to secure
the seed and the soil for inoculation.
To Interest All Farmers.
The aim of the department of agri
culture is to get a winter cover crop
on every acre of land in South Carolina
It will take many years to accomplish
the desired result, but the people are
waking up to the opportunity and the
benefit of winter cover crops, and it is
believed that great results will be ac
complished in the next few years. Far
mers. are advised to plant rye or oats
on the larger part of their farm if they
have never grown any leguminous
winter cover crop, but it is advisable
to plant a small area of vetch, bur
clover, red clover or crimson clover,
following the directions given, and
then in another year by having plenty
of soil for inoculation, the farmer can
extend his area as he sees fit. Most
of the failures with these crops, and
also with the alfalfa, has been due to
lack of proper knowledge of planting.
Where the proper methods have been
followed there has been practically no
Any one desiring to grow any of
these crops successfully, will do well
to write Mr. Smith for proper direc
