!t has been suggested thai candi
dates should come with the peach
blossoms. Preeminence in worth, or
virtue, or fitness otherwise, Is not bo
common as to attract the attention of
the country and designate suitable
persons to hold the places of profit and
honor. Hence it follows that friends
put forth their I el low citizens us quali
fied to discharge duties that the pub
lic demands, and as worthy of their
confidence. In a republic it must be
so and it is rightly so. Among the
Romans those who aspired to the
highest oillces must put on white robes
and appear before the votors?and
hence we have; candidate, clean, pure,
white. Hence the primary and the de
mand that all who aspire to place should
appear before Ihe people that their
virtues and lilness may be canvassed
and judged. Wo trust that we shall
have a Held full of our patriotic fellow
citizens th's spring and summer and
all have a merry good time. It is no
slam thai our neighbors should bo
chosen ami be thought a litter choice
The best man is not always selected.
Senator Tlllman visited the state
last week, being one of the Olomson
Trustees. He is reported to have done
a little political sapping and incident
ally discussed the delegates from this
State to the Kansas City Convention
The Hon. it. \v. Ihtrnwell was spoken
of for the Charleston District and the
Hon. Stanyarno Wilson, from this, the
?Ith District. Senator Mel.aurin also.
Of course Senator Tlllman will go as a
delegate for the State at large. Hut we
cannot see how the two Senators can
well go. They agree on silver, and
trusts (as antis), but they are wide
apart on the imperialistic idea,and an
ti-imperialism is sure to be a big plank
in the platform. Then we can't see bow
MoLaurin can swallow Bryan as an
anti-imperailist? except as one should
take his X with a great deal of sweet
ening and doctoring. Going to the
National Convention is valuable as
opening the door for the delegates to
fat places in case the party lands. If
Congress is likely to adjourn by the
loth of Juno it Is not probable that the
State Convention will be called to
meet before that date, but some date
of that month must be fixed as the
National Convention assembles the Ith
The time is on us now for pitching a
crop for the ensuing year. Just at
this moment COtton is commanding a
fancy price. In our innocence we
may be led to enthrone him and make
him again King. Two causes may ho
assigned for the big boost ill the price.
American spinners rushed into the
market last fall and got what they
wanted. Then the. European world
hesitated to believe that the crop was
more than a million bales short. And
so it 0'*mcs around that foreign spin
ners at this late day are ravenous bid
ders. Let us be wise, however, and
not plant the winde earth this season.
A nine million hale crop will give us
more money than cloven and fill our
corn cribs to overflowing.
Old soldiers are beginning to appre
