so doing.

transfers of pupils from one dis
trict to another cannot be made
without the concurrence of a
majority of both sets of trustees
Our. road IawV should be
changed so as to req.ire the
payment of $2 a year by each
person subject to road duty.
There should not be any altern
ative, but should be levied and
collected: just like the poll tax.
Our country schools should be
better provided for. We need a
compulsory educ'ational system
with certain restrictions and lim
itations, and sufficient funds' to
keep every school open at ledst
eight months in the year.

Democratic Prospects. I
The present outlook for a
Democratic president in the ap
proaching election is very en
couraging. The leaders of the
party have held the reins very ~
steady arid made some telling a
political strokes during the past ~
eighteen months. The most
prominently spoken of in the
Democratic ranks are Goy. Jud
son Harmon, of Ohio; Gov. Wil
son,'of New Jersey; Speaker v
Champ Clark, of Missouri; Con- .
gressman Underwood, of Ala- c
bama; and Col. W. J. Bryan, of a
Nebraska. Of these five. Har- b
mon and Wilson seem to be the d
favorites at present. Both of L
these are strong men, and eith- v
er would make a good Demo- s
cratic executive.s
Gov. Harmon is very popular i
in. Ohio, and, between he and t.
Pres. Taf t, would very likely .
carry 'that state, Ohio being the a
home of both. Since the has a
been governor he has made a
some very striking changes in
the administration of the public t
afairydf that state, and has t
brought about reforms which a
have astonished his foes and de- a
lighted his friends. He isai
strong man, and would proba- t
bly be elected by a larger vote i.
than any man the Democrats a
could nominate, yet he has some i
things against him that are s
not compatible with a certain a
element of the party. It has y
been hinted that he is in sympa- t
thy with the liquor interests. t
and is being backed and pushed f
and heartily supported by the y~
distillers and brewers organiza
tions. This statement is not
given with knowledge of facts,
but is only a matter of rumor.
How much truth there is in it, ,
we do not know and do not pre- c
tend to say, but this should be e
one of the vital principles of the
pa ry. . c
Gov. Wilson seems to be the Ic
choice of the South. While now I
governor of a Northern state, he u
is a Southern man by birth and. h
training; knows conditions here a
will'be in hearty accord with ci
eyery movement for our ad
vandement, He did what few T~
men could have done when he 1
carried the rock-rib.>ed Republi- n
can state of New Jersey against a
a neswerful. well organIized
Gov. Wilson has proven
mself to be a'man capable of
adership and worthy of trust
public affairs. His only ban
cap is that 'he is a Southern
an. This may weaken his
aances in some of the Northern
ates, but we believe he can be
ected unless there is a great
lange in ths political atmos
here before the election.
As to Speaker Clarke, the
ime objection confronts him,
e., he is too far South. He
as proven that in statecraft he
equal to any of them. But it
as been suggested that he -is
:o friendly with the corpoia
ons. It-should not be objec
onable for a man to be friend
r with the corporations, :.nd
Lis should not weigh against
im nn!es L34. so wrapped up
a them that he iv'ould submit to
2eir control. This 1z where the
ub comes. It'is impo"sible for
he people to know how a man
ill be influenced by coiporate
ealth, and therefore not many
Lre willing to vote for~ a man
onnected with corporations.
NMr. UnCerwood will not be se
iously considered. While he is
brilliant man and would fill
he office with distinction, he is
o mcch of a Southerri gentle
an to be president.
Col. Bryan is being mentioned
Ls a probable candidate, and'no
enial is made that, he is not
trong intellectually, morally
and politically, but as we do not
ielieve he can win, we hope he
ill not enter the race, He has
aet defeat three times, and it
ould be party suicide to put
rim forward again.
But whoever maybe the Dem
icratic standard bearer this
ear, we confidentially expect a
weeping v.ctory.

A Farmers' Warehouse.
The Question of building a
areouse at Pickens for the
rmers to store their future
tton crops, or so much thereof
they may desire to store, is
eing agitated. Mr J. F. Hen
ricks, of Liberty, was in town
ist week and stated that he
'as heartily in favor of such a
heme, and that he would in a
ort while make a canvass of
e county to that end. He
inks that withi warehouses all
