The State fair this week, then
Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then
the legislature, and then the campaign
next summer-the campaign which
has already started.
The New Orleans conference of
governors has not solved the South's
problem, 'but it has given the farmers
sound advice as to reducing acreage
and securing data as to the demand
for cotton. Meanwhile, if the farmers
will each for himself resolve to raise
what he needs next year and not
bother about the price of cotton in
1912, the situation will solve itself
That is the solution.
Newspapers of a town work for it
day and night. They do all they can
to build up a town and bring busi
ness to it, but* they are often unap
preciated by the very people they help.
-Orangeburg Times & Democrat.
There is little doubt of the truth of
the above. The people you do the
most to help, as a rule, are the ones
that never appreciate it, or very soon
forget it. Of course, there are nota
EDITOR WILLIAM BANKS.
In taking charge of the Anderson
Daily Mail, Col. William Banks has
succeeded an editorial writer whom it
is a loss to South Carolina journalism
to have leave the profession and the
State, but Col. Banks is well fitted,
both by experience and ability, to keep
the -editorial page of the Anderson Mail
up to its high standard. In his firot
issue Mr. Banks has a ringing edi
torial, in which he announces that the
Mail will wear no man's collar, but
will work for the best interests of An
derson and of the F'iedmont section,
and of the whole of South Carolina, as
the Mail sees those interests. Mr.
Banks has made; a study of industrial
conditions in South Carolina, and in
the wider field of activity, which his
editorial management will give him
we expect to see some fine work from
him for Anderson and for the State
We wish Col. Banks and the Mail
so: e mighty gocd advice, but it is
the same advice which has been giver,
thousands of times in the very recent
past-to hold the present crop off the
market and to curtail acreage next
year. The great trouble with many
of the Southern cotton growers is that
they have obligations which must be
met, and that they are not able to
hold, their cotton-that they are fc
ed to sell.
The problem will only be solved
when the Southern far'zer raises his
own supplies at home, and raises* cot
ton purely as a money crop. In this
way and in this way only can the
Southern farmer become independent
and demand of the world a fair price
for his cotton. We are buying too
much high-priced Western corn--and
inferior corn, at that-with money
from low-priced cotton, and we are
buying too many other things which
we ought to be raising at home, and
for which the soil of the South is pe
