Columbia. .ian. 31.---Indications are
lentiful that the followers of the ad
ministration are planning to capture
the next general assembly, and with
this end in view are holding confer
ences daily with the Illease leaders
from every part of t1he State, who are
constantly in Columbia during the sOs
Sion of the legislature. The compact
ness of the organization is beginning
to attract attention in political cir
There is a (inlet . ling aroutnd the
capitol that blease followers in the
general assemnbly have a definite or
ganization with a chairman and that
daily meetings are held In which mat
ters before the legislature are discuss
e(1 and the political outlook through
out the State generally, gone over. In
some Ittarters it is whispered that the
organization has headquarters in a
suite of rooms in one of the buildings
in Columbia, bout no Statement .has
been made regarding this matter. In
fact the scope of the undertaking is
just beginning to leak ott a little.
Gov. leu so not very many nights
ago gave a stokter to his political fot
lowte in the general assembly and it.
is said that matters concerning leg
islatiot anti organization were liscuss
ed. Report s of th'at meeting are that
attention was given to the need of
building fit) and strengthening the ad
ministration forces throughout the
State, and the necleessity for eapturing
the next Democratic Convention and
the primary election machinery was
imtpressed on the leaders who gather
ed amotnt the Conference taeble.
Of course the followers in the ad
ministration circles are counting large
ly on the strength of Gov lBlease in
ils race for the senate. Then, up in
Congressman .ohtnson's district Sam
NidthlA, probal!y the best known
of the Ulease lieutenants a running
for congress. Over in the adjoining
district that of Congressman Aiken,
Assistant. Attorney General Dominick
is seeking election to congress. 1 r.
Dominick was for years law-partner
of Gov. Blease and was his campaign
manager in both of his races for gov
ernor. In the Tenth dlistrict ltepre
sentative Sapp, of Lancaster county,
a promuinent leader in the present gen
eral assembly of the Itlease forces, is
running against Congressman Finley.
Whether any of the other congress
men w!ll- be opposed by any Blease fol
lowers is not known. Hut the size
of the ticket will be large.
Then there is talk that Dr. Olin
Sawyer, who went down in defeat in
the Jones wave in Georgetown coun
ty in 1912, is about to run in for gov
ernor. It has been generally under
stood that Mir. Charles Carroll Sims,
of -Barnwell, would get the most of the
Illease votes, but it is said that there
Is a disposition,. especially among the
extreme of the faction, to groom iDr.

* SOW (LOVER SEED. *
* ** * ***9* ** * * ** ** * *
The best time for seeding red clov
er is in the spring, and it can be sown
to excellent advantage either by itself
or on fall-sown grain the end of leb
ruary or during .larch. Very satis
factory stands are obtained by sow
iug clover seed on wheat, oats or oth
er grains which may have been sown
In the fall, and then ruinning a sharp
tooth harrov: crosswise over the field,
so as to g'ive the seed a slight cover
ing. Utunning the barrow over it does
not in.lure the grain crop, but increas
es the yield, really acting as a cilti
vaLion t, the crop. ('lover seed re
dittirts a good, iri seed bed, anid sow
lig In this way, it is sown under ideal
conditions for securing a good stand.
All throughout the WVest it is the reg
ular custom to sow clover seed in the
spring oft practically all fall-sown
wheat or other grain crops.
Sowing A lsike Clover and Alfalfa In
Mixture with Red (lover.
fled ('lover is considered as the
standard forage' and soil-iniproving
crop colubined, and is more widely
and generally used than any other
crop for this pntrpose. The 'itiantity
;owvn to thie acre is usually ten to
t welve pounds. It Is an excellent plan
when seeding to also sow two or :hiree
pounds of alsike clover to the acre:
an i if It is desired to inoculate the soil
fol : dalfa, a seeding of three to live
polttds of alfaltfa is desiralbe. Where
these three clovers are sown in iix
lure. N Ilbs of redl clover, : lbs of
Alsike ('lover and 1 lbs of Alfalfa is
the hquantity isially sown to the acre.
Tle tiva ntage of sowing alsike clover
are more on the lines of crop insur
ance than otherwise, as alsike clover
is surer to give i stand, and also
?tands more adverse conditions of dry
or eeold weather than other clovers.
Advantages of Sowing Alifa.lfit in ('lov-.
er and (Grass Mixtures.
The sowing of alfallta with both
clovers and grasses Is lilke'y to in
crease the yield considerably, and the
sowing of alfalfa in mixtures with oth
er grasses and clovers is one of the
best ways of testing as to whether it
is adapted to your land, and also of
thoroughly inoculating your land, in
case it is desired to put the land down
to a pure alfalfa crop afterwards.
