convention From a superficial read
ing of th? names of Hie delegates pub

plexion of Hie county eon vent ion hore
will ho very much as il was two years
ago. We hope that the convention
(his year will follow the sage advice
of lin- county chairman two years ago,
which was disregarded, and have no
steam rollers, or lines of eleuvuge or
anything of that kimi, hut select from
thc hotly of citizenship of thc county
a? represented at the convention, the
best men to stand for thc liest county
in the state.
Thc convention two years ago fol
lowed the visit of one of the candi
dates for governor who had made se
rious charges against thc governor
of the state who was offering for re
election, and the reeling at the time
was somewhat acute. As a result
there was a misunderstanding on ac
count of rumors, which caused a se
rious breach in the party. We tros?
that the mistakes made then, by both
sides, will serve to prove that men on
opposite sides are not subjects of sus
picion und distrust, but to ?howe that
we are all citizens of a splendid coun
ty, one whose record and history is
something of which we ought to be
proud) ami that in the approacning
convention the dominant note will be
moderation, toleration and a desire to
find a common ground or patriotism
upon which all meen may meet.
Let's have no give and take, as if
we were people of different countries
but let us Beek first the good of the
old county, and in doing so look for
men who wi! in honor and fearlessly
discharge the duties entrusted to
them. There may be serious ques
tions to be discussed, and these should
be Bettled outside of any considera
tion of personalities.
LET US HAVE BASEBALL
Several of the leagues of profes
sional hall players commenced their
annual championship hegiras under
unfavorable auspices, so far as pub
licity ls concerned. The mix-up In
Mexico has taken the time and space
of the newspapers and the reading
public has almost forgotten the old
habit ot looking for the sports page
the first thing in the morning.
Anderson has had her selge of pro
fessional ball and is very nearly
' cured." lt was a costly experiment
in somo ways. There ts some satis
faction in observing, however, that
some of our old boys are doing splen
did work among tho. stars who are
attracting the attention ot tho whole
country, and as a matter of fact, lt
was a lot of fun while it lusted.
But what we wish to suggest ls this.
We need baseball-not a dally sit-in.
but for a week-end pastime. It does
peoplo lots of good to see a game, say
every Saturday afternoon. Let us
have a local league here with good,
lively ball by the home hopes. A
closely contested game is interesting,
no matter whero it is played, by whom
or when-Sunday not Included.
A movement is on foot to organize
a leaguo of the kind we had last
hummer. We hope that the public will
take to lt, and enjoy it. Some beau
tiful games' were played here last
