REMEDY IS AT HOME.
A great many measures are being
introduced in congress which have ,
for their ostensible aim the protection i
of the farmers of tne South in thej
matter of getting a fair price for their ,
cotton. We hope that some one of ; J
these bills may do some good, but our j|
judgment is that the matter rests fin- j
ally with the farmers themselves.
, Whenever the farmers of the South
realize that by raising at home their
own home supplies, and by devoting
more attention to corn and wheat and
oilier money crops, they can demand
a fair price for their cotton and receive
it, they will have solved the
The great trouble with the South in
this regard has been that our planters i
have been depending too much on cot- 1
ton and cotton alone. Conditions,
however, have improved, and we trust
they will continue to improve. The;
raising at home of home supplies, and j
diversified farming, are becoming j
more and more the order of the day. j
The farmers of the South have a
wonderful monopoly in the raising of j
cotton, and when they take advantage
ot their opportunity, as they will in j
the not distant future, they will be j
"independent of every interest and
neither Wall Street nor financial panics
will be able to affect them.
Senator Tdllmaa has had passed
his resolution to prohibit smoking
during executive sessions of the senate,
and the senator has delivered a (
dissertation to his colleagues upon the r
evil enects ot nign living. rne L
abuse of whiskey and tobacco, and eat- *
ing too much, he ascribes as the prin- J
cipal cause of ill health. What the c
senator said has been said thousands j
of times before, and is no doubt true. !
- In fact, we recall some such thing in'
the Bible. Over-indulgence in any-1
thing is bad; and praticularly in the a
things whic-h Senator Tillman mentions.
The most sensible remark we have j
seen in the editorial columns of the j g
Columbia Record in a long time is the'
following: Z -. . ,. . \
"As long as the people of the United ;
States have the Philippines on their j
hands as an object lesson they will
sidestep taking on the government or j
Mexico if thev are wise."
There is such a thing, however, as
requiring respect for American citizens
and American interests by a;
country such as Mexico, without "taking
on the government" of that country.
Governor Colquitt, of Texas, i
seems to be working in harmony with ;1
the Washington administration so far j
as he can, but his positive stand in j
some recent matters is to be admired.!.
The Herald and Xews does not mean ,
to set itself up as a critic of the Wash-:
ing' on administration. Xor do we \
want to see this country involved in i
a war with Mexico. But it has seem- j
ed to us at time that a little more'
positive stand could have been taken ,;
by this great nation, without the dan- j
ger of war.
