Farmers Can Make
Pork and Corn Pay
How much longer and further are
the prices of the necessities of life to
be forced skyward This is the most
serious question by which the Ameri
can people are today confronted It
is all very optimistic and plausible to
say the present situation must ulti
mately work out Its own salvation
but it Is eminently more practicabla
for the ultimate consumerdespite
the statements of Henry Cabot Lodge
to the contrary theres such a thing
as the ultimate consumerto take a
hand in the working out of that sal
vation with his own head and hands
This week there came from Kansas
City virtually the headquarters of the
heel trust as well as of the pork in
terests the report that the riice c r
hogs now trying to keep pace with
the price of beef has reached the
highest mark since 1SS2 And 5L
Louis is about as bad for St Louis
prices are at the moment higher than i
at any time since 1S90 Pittsburg pork
Is at the highest notch it ever has
seen With such figures demanded > n
the three leading pork markets of the
land whore we are once more prompt
ed to ask the ulumate consumer or
pork is the price eventually to go
Pork and lard some hygienic author
itirs may condemn as unhealthful
and it is possible that this claim or
t dieticians is well founded but the
fact remains that they are staples ot
the daily faro of the workingman the
country over more particularly in the
West and South than In the East and
North Their substitutes are not yet
In sight in any market
The Southern farmer can do much
to fight the grasping pork people of
the Middle West If ho will but put
some time and a moderato amount or
money into an occupation that in
times gone paid him well Time was
when the Southern farmer had his
i
amok house on his home acres His
corn crib was no great distance away
It was no uncommon experience in
those days to meet the farmer who
could make good his claim to pork
enough to last him through the sea
son with some to spare Farmers or
small calibre as well as those con
ducting business on an extensive scale
were included in the category of the
fellows who made their own pork of a
superior quality and who also raised
at home more than enough feed for
their cattle
Now this condition has wholly
changed The smoke houses are lo
cated at the western stockyards and
the graneries of the farmers are all
centralized in the West where Chi
cago and St Louis and Minnesota
I
capital supply them with the sinews
I
of production and in turn wring from
i
the consumer the unjust profit always
made possible by monopoly They
control the supply absolutely and
there is every reason to believe their
I
boosting of prices is to continue
chronic
The Southern farmer must revert to i
chI conditions by raising pork and
corn at least enough for himself Al
most always he can spare the land for
these two profitable ventures We do
not believe he will be so stupid as to
I
fan to grasp a situation where the as
sured financial returns are sufficient i
to place him on a footing with the j
f inner who has sold 16cent cotton
I
The president is putting the amsn
i
ng marks on the proofsheets of his
I
first special to
message Congress
Ne spapermen who have to read it all I
and conscientious Congressmen who
eel as though they ought to sit still and
hear it all read are entitled to gen
eral sympathy If Mr Taft uses an
other 18000 words to say as little as

Will Southern Man
Have Place in 1912
The Savannah News which at first
blush was inclined to treat facetiously
the Richmond interview of the Hon
Bob Glenn wherein the recent govern
or of the Tarheels advocated a South
ern man for the vicepresidential nom
ination in 1912 and which even went
so far as to suggest that the Hon Bob
might ibe putting in one word for the
Southern Democracy and two for him
self evidently has reconsidered the
geographical situation as applied to
the 1912 nominations and now goes
the eminent North Carolinian one bet
ter by advocating a Southern man for
the top of the ticket in the next cam
paign
The News is not the first Southern
paper to take this stand which will
seem radical to some of the hardshell
Democratic organs of the North and
East two or three papers below Ma
son and Dlxons line put in a timid
line or two on the same subject as
much as three or four years ago but
the News is the most prominent South
ern paper that has lately declared that s
the South the backbone of the party i
I
vote at national elections should in I
1912 be rewarded for its past party
fidelity by being permitted to name
the candidate for president The News
quotes a recent Atlanta Journal edito
rial which says that the Democratic
party never will elect another presi
dent until a man from the Southern
section of the country gets the nomi
nation
This gives the easywriting edit >
riahst of the News some food for I
thought and h ° proceeds I
The Democratic party has been at I
ing ever since the close of the war be
s tween the states upon the idea Jhit i
j the time had not yet come for naming i
j a Southern man for president that tap
South was sure to cast her electoral
i vote for the Democratic ticket and
that therefore he wise thing to do
was to name a Northern man who
could carry some of the Northern
states Tho only man it has elected
was Grover Cleveland and he was
electPd simply because the people had
I extraordinary confidence in his honesty
and his purpose to administer the gov
I ernment economically and in accord
ance with the wishes and interests of
j the people They believed he wouM
stand up against the trusts the pro
I tectcd interests and Wall street mtlu
j cures They were not mistaken It
I would be extremely difficult to name
j a Northern man who had thn confi
I dence of the people in these respects
to the extent that Mr Cleveland hart
and it the same time administer the
government sanely and safely
But cannot such a man be found in
the South We believe there can
The South is conservative She isnt
the home of the great trusts and she
is against the protective system Wall
j street influences do not seriously af
fect her The impression would pre
Vail that a Southern man being from
i a section comparatively free from
these interests and influences would
administer the sovernment wholly in
i the interests of the people BeMdeK
there is a strong sentiment in the
i North in favor of making it clear that
i all sectional feeling has disappear
and this sentiment would show itself
in a presidential election in which a
I
Southern man was a candidate
In the doubtful states it would l > f
i strong enough to swing thos state
S to the Democratic column And there
is another thing that would help a
Southern man It is the belief thru
the South is on the eve of a great de
I velopment and that reeling would in
fluence votes for a Southern candidate
I There is much force in the area
ment which our Savannah cort m
porary presents in favor of a Southern
man for the 1912 presidential nomina
tion The South has always furnish i
the bulk of the Democratic vot the
South is entitled to one of the candi
dates on the ticket which the out
whoever the convention sees tit i
name is always bound to solidly Jur
port We believe however city I
many Southern papers as well as
many Southern iseii wkoee opinions I
were solicited by virtue of Uov
r Glenns declaration that the South 1
should name the vicepresident in 1912
I that it Is quite as practicable to go II
gradually at this task of securing for I
the South that recognition from the
national convention which her loyalty
to all the nominations of the party
may justly command
Even then it may not be possible to
get a Southern vicepresidential can
didate so soon The North and the
East have long neon prone to believe
that the South would vote the ticket
anyhow and some strenuous mission
ary work would have to be dono in
New York Indiana New Jersey and
other essential states by the friends
of the Southern man willing to under
take the nomination It would not be
so necessary to fight sectional preju
dice as it would be to combat the long
time impression of Northern and East
ern men of the party that the South
does not really wish or expect to be
recognized by the national ticket
builders
We are glad however that the feel
ing for Southern recognition on the
ticket has been espoused by so sane
intelligent and temperate a party or
gan as the Savannah News whose
opinions will carry weight outside
Georgia and outside the South As a
compromise possibly we may get the
second place on the ticket and the
anomoly of Southern representation on
the ticket having been at length dis
pelled it would of course be easier
to get a presidential after a vicepres
idential nomination for a Southern
Democrat Two or three Northern
and Eastern papers have commenced
to consider what doubtless seems to
them an impractical proposition but
thus far there have been no harsh
sentiments expressed and no syllable
of question has ben cast upon the
validity of the Souths claims for
I
recognition How the sentiment will
crystallize by convention day of 191
remains one of the interesting party
problems and thoughtful Republicans
as well as Democrats will watch it
Champ Clark is not always right I
but when he says too many bright
American boys and girls are leaving
the farm where the profits today are
greater than they ever were before

I kept growing worse When the
