The News and Courier and the Columbia
State published detailed reports
of the various county conventions
held throughout the State on
Monday, giving the action, where action
was taken, on the presidential
candidates, and also dividing the delegates
inito Blease and Jones columns.
What effect the various conventions
will have on the primaries this summer

heretofore, the conventions can hard- \
ly be put down as indicative of the
political sentiment of the various
counties. In some of the counties it is
known that the action of the conventions
did not express the sentiment of
the counties. However, The Herald
and News Las sought to glean from the
reports in the daily papers the contentions
of these papers as to the political
affiliations of the delegates to the
AAr?TT/\r? + ?r\n
The State convention has 336 dele*
gates. The daily papers concede only
51 of these to Blease, and claim 247
for Jones, placing 38 in the doubtful
column. That is the News and Courier's
The "Home" Counties.
The Newberry convention, and its
control by the Blease forces, was published
in detail in the last issue of
The Herald and News. In Lancaster,
Jones's home* county, the convention
- - r _
was control lea Dyxne Jones ibices duu
strong resolutions were passed endorsing
the Jones candidacy. Jones was
also endorsed by the Edgefield convention.
The Laurens convention strongly
endorsed the administration of Governor
Blease, called on the county candidates
to declare themselves as between
Blease and Jones, and elected a
solid Blease delegation to the State
In Richland, George R. Humbert, the
Blease floor leader in the house, was
sent to the State convention. It is
claimed that JRichland's other eleven
delegaes are Jones supporters.
In Union, Lowndes J. Browning,
chairman of he ways and means committee
of the house, and an anti-Blease
leader, who was defeated by his home
club as a delegate to the county convention,
was sent to the Srate convention.
It is contended that Union's delegates
are Jones man, and that the alternates
are Blease men.
The daily newspapers place in the
Jones column all the delgates with the
Newberry is solid for Blease.
In Kershaw five out of six are conceded
to Blease. Two out of six in
Berkeley are conceded to Blease. In
Orangeburg, it is contended that the
delegates are principally Jones supporters,
bust the Orangeburg convention
instructed its delegation to support
the two United States senators,
the governor, and the State chairman,
for delegates at large to the national
convention in Baltimore.
. ^aureus is given solidly to tfiease,
her delegates being instructed to support
the governor. John M. Cannon
was elected county chairman, and W.
T. Crews succeeds his father, the late
lamented Col. T. B. Crews, as member
of the State executive committee.
In Barnwell one delegate is conceded
to Blease, and Dorchester's four
delegates are solid for Blease. In
Richland and Lexington one in each
delegation are given to Blease. In Lee
the Blease men are in the majority on
the delegation. Blease is conceded 1
in Beaufort, 1 in Sumter, 1 in Oconee,
2 in Calhoun, 2 in Chester. Pickens
divided, 1 being conceded to Blease.
The baby county, Jasper, has a split
delegation, 1 for Blease, 1 for Jones,
and 2 non-committal. In Bamberg 2
are given to Blease.
There was a split in the Georgetown
convention, and two sets of dele- j
gates are sent to the State convention,
a Jones delegation and a Blease delegation.
The Blease forces withdrew
ar.d organized a separate convention. j
The State's and the News and Cour-j
ier's correspondents say that the withdrawal
of the Blease forces came after
their opponents had elected a presiding
officer by a majority of one vote.
The State convention will have to decide
which delegation is entitled to
In Charleston there was a, split, and
two conventions were 'held. The split
in Charleston, however, came over the
race for sheriff. State politics playing
no part in either convention. Two sets
r?f will go to the State con-j
vention, and the State convention will j
have to review this situation.
It is reported that in Spartanburg the
I Blease men took no active part in the
The other counties are claimed to
have delegations to the State convention
composed of Jones adherents.
Tn imnth^r column in this issue of
I The Herald and News, an interview
with Governor Blease is published, in
which he says that, notwithstanding
the reports give the Jones men control
of the State convention, his name will
be presented as a candidate for delete
at large to Baltimore.
For United States Senate.
Senator Tillman was endorsed in
Edgefield, Lancaster, Greenville, Dorchester
and Saluda. In Edgefield he
was chosen by acclamation to the
StaJte convention, while his op-ponent,
Talbert, was defeated for delegate to
the State convention.
The Presidential Candidates.
Five of the counties instructed for
Wilson, and six counties endorsed his
candidacy without instructions. There
were no instructions or endorsements
for any other presidential candidate.
Underwood has supporters on the
Newberry delegation, and the Newberry
delegation will very probably support
him in the State convention, and
he has supporters on the Abbeville
delegation, and other delegations.
The following are the counties which
instructed for Wilson, and the number
of their delegates to the State convenion:

An Appeal in Behalf of >'ew Jersey's
Old Home Day.
New York Sun.
We have been asked to assist with
our approval a project highly favored
by a number of respectable citizens of
New Jersey having for its object the
setting apart of a day in midsummer
for the reunion, at the places of their
birth or adopted residence, of all persons
born in that State or at any time
domiciled therein. It is proposed that
the civic dignitaries in the various cities,
towns and villages take charge
of the celebration and arrange its details
with a view to giving the great
I est pleasure to the largest possible
! number of persons.
It will be a happiness to the Sun to
render such assistance as it can to the
! promoters of this State-wide Old Home
Day, and we urge our co-laborers in
the press generally to join in the effort
to make the occasion a complete success
by aiding the effort that is making

whose presence and assistance are
greatly desired. Mr. Wilson was elected
governor of New Jersey in 1910, and
immediately after that disappeared
from the State. At various times since
then he has been heard from, and it
is reported that he has even been within
the borders of the State. These reports
lack confirmation and are generally
discredited. It is feared that

by his oratorical and letter-writing

political principles. He is eager to |

Article Seventy-two?For Hbg Grazing.
Now is the time that preparations
should be made for planting root crops
for fall and winter grazing for the
hogs. At this time of the year the fall
11 anting of rye and rape are being
gi azed down and something should be
p.anted to take their places through
tue summer months. Cowpeas, soy
beans, sorghum, and peanuts are all
excellent crops for this purpose. Root
crops such as mangels, artichokes, potatoes,
and chufad should be planted
to furnish fall and winter grazing. In
the fall when green feed is scarce, the
hogs should be fed on root crops
along with corn to fatten them for an
early market Chufas are excellent
for early fall grazing. Atichokes, ow '
? 4-1 * ? 1'aanl'nor l'j
ILLg IU UXe.ll 5UUU <1u?4A.'~0 ?.
left in the ground, can be reserved
until the chufas have given out. Either
of these crops supplemented with
corn will gi\e better grains than il
the hogs are fed corn alone.
Artichokes are among the best root
crops for hogs. While they do not
contain as much protein as peanuts
and soy beans, the large yields which
can be had, on the sandy loams too
poor almost to produce a profitable
crop of corn or cotton, and their good
keeping' qualities when left in the
ground through the winter, make them
a very desirable crop for hogs. Beginning
in October, hogs can be turned
into a field of artichokes, and if allowed
to graze only an hour or two
each day, one acre should last 25 or
30 hogs all winter, provided a little
corn is fed along with the artichokes.
About the last of July the field of
artichokes could be broadcasted with
cowpeas, thus adding to the amount of
grazing to be gotten from one acre.
Rape also will do well if broadcasted
between the rows'the last of August
or during the first part of September
fnr erazine later in the winter. Rape
sown earlier than the first of September
will give the best results, as it will
be ready for grazing earlier. Peanuts
also can be used in combination
with artichokes. If these two crops
are sown together, the peanuts should
alternate with the artichokes, one row
of artichokes being followed by two of
peanuts. The rows of artichokes
should not be placed too close together,
for they will shade the peanuts
Artichokes should be planted in
March or April. As they are not very
tender plants, they can be planted
shortly after Irish potatoes, and a
light frost will do them little harm.
From 5 to 7 bushels of tubers should
be used per acre, in three aud onehalf
foot rows, placing them 18 inches
tr? two feet aDart in the rows. A fer
tilizer consisting of 100 pounds of acid
phosphate, 200 pounds kainit, and 100
pounds of cotton seed meal per acre
should be applied in the drill at the
time of planting. Shallow and frequent
cultivation should be given.
Harvesting can be done as soon as
the plants reach maturity, or they may
be left in the ground to be gathered by
hogs. If the tubers are to be dug, tney
should be banked the same as potatoes,
or stored in a root cellar.
