?KRINNING THU CAMPAIGN
With tho meeting of th? national
executive committees of Hie two great
pnrtieB to fix thc time and place for
holding the next party conventions,
thc presidential campaign may be said
to have formally opened, and the de
bates In congress and thc usual polit
ical manipulation accompanying its
deliberations will still further inton
elfy the fdtuntlon.
So far i*H tho Democrats ure con
cerned, lt Is a foregone conclusion
that Mr. Wilson will bend the party
ticket In 1910. There could he hardly'
any other result even if Hie president j
Mere averse to accepting' a nomina
tion. As (.'hamp Clark Bald some
moni hs ago, if tho Democratic party
has made good under the president's
leadership it will have to name him
again, and If thc party lins not mado
good, the nomination will bo worth
nothing to any other man, That the
party has made good to ri most re
markable degree with Hs extensive
progrnm of sensible and constructive
legislation, no impartial fltudent of
political affairs will deny, and it will
bo hard for the Republicans to muddy
Ibo water? and hide the merit of tho
present administration from the vot
ers of the country.
Four cities aro contesting for tho
honor of having tho Democratic con
vention next year, San Francisco,
Dallas, St. Louis and Chicago. Wo
would Uko to see lt brought to Dallas,
but the chances favor Chicago, which
in Jeto years has become more and
moro a Convention city for both par
tien. St. Louis is also a strong bid
der and a convenient location, but in
Democratic circles there seemB to
hang a certain hoodoo over tho Mis
souri city because of the men who
have been nominated there and have
failed. Tilden wno named there in
1876 and lost, or rather was elected
and com.ted out. In 1888 Cleveland
had hin second nomination there and
was defeated. Again in ?ij?4 Parker
got a nomination there .ami was dis
astrously beaten.
' The pince that gets the Republican
convention will have a lively run for
Us money as locality is ot extreme
importance where the field is so di
vided and tt?e party is centered on no
ono candidate. Seward was much
stronger than Lincoln in the conven
tion of 1860, and it is genorally be
lieved that Lincoln would never have
receive tl the Republican nomination
had the convention been hold in doy
other city than Chicago.
Besides being a splondid place fur
holding a convention, with Us myriad
rai'roads and its huge auditorium,
Chicago is regarded by both parties
with favor because? of the successes
that have come from nominations
made there. Cleveland waa nominat
ed there in 1884 and in 1893, and both
times ho won. At Chicago, Garfield
In 1880, Harrison in 1888, RooBOvelt
in 1904, and Taft in 1908, all won.
The race is on in 'earnest now, and
tho Republicans will have to trot out
some mighty fine runners it they ex
pect, to stay within Bight of Woodrow
Wilson.

CLOSE ' TO THE PEOPLE
Wo do not know whether it has
been tho custom heretofore for the
county delegation to hold one or more
public meetings -with the rtople be
fore going to Columbia to make laws
for the benefit 'Of state and county,
but the custom Is wise and Demo
cratic and ought to result in good.
On iocal matters in particular, the
momo err, of tho delegation ought to
kee? in close touch with' the people
they represent so as to ascertain
their wishes and then to pass such
legislation as .will be ot the greatest
good to them.
Before the elections are held every
two years the candidates are required
to gp around and address the voters
on tho issue ot the day, but their con
tact with" tho people niter they aie
chosan to office should" not be hind
ered in any zaauutT.'Governmehfc can
not be thoroughly Democratic unices
the people have a. direct voice !n mak
ing the lawa that govern them, that
is, a voice that fa expressed directly
though men they- choose to protect
their Intercuts.
It meetings such 'as tho Anderson
delegation has called win be held at
jmb>. Intervals as the public welfare
demands ,tho peop'o will bo brought
into closer relations .with their chosen
representatives and both <T?H1 $ baye
a better understanding of tho duties'
and responsibilities that belong, to
them*.
- 'The delegation does wen to take tho
people into their full confidence and
to ask for a mutual and frank dis
cussion, of problems that vitallyeon
ca*n Jbe people.
Of course it was. the , prlnt?r\

CROWDED Ot T
I
From what we have seen and from
what wc have boen told by those who
know, there ls considerably less grain
sowed this year than was planted lan'
fall. The weather still continues fav
orable for sowing grain, and wo sin
cerely hope that tho acreage will bo
fully as lurgo as lt was for 1915.
There ls, of course, a naturul temp
tation to Increase the acreage In cot
ton following a season when the price
has been good, but a general surrend
er to this feeling over the South will
certainly result In a bumper crop in
1916 anil probably much lower prices
than now prevail. Wo are passing
through a period of commercial con
fusion In which the war has played
havoc with economic conditions the
world over, and lt would be well for
thc farmer to proceed with extreme
cru'tlon until the rn!r.t:; clear away and
he can seo ahead ot him better than
he can see now.
After the war Is over and the forces
of reconstruction have had time to
bring order out of wreck and ruin, af
ter crippled industries have been
brought to a new and vigorous life, lt
is probable that tho world's markets
will offer a wider demand for cotton
than they have ever done. No ono
knows, however, what the effect will
be, and until this world madness is nt
an end it is he.".t to go slow and ralso
first what we know we can use at
home and then grow cotton only for
what can conservatively bo fore
shadowed as a normal demand.
A grain crop Is a safe dependence,
and we hope that tho acreage will yet
bc greatly increased. Don't crowd
out the grain with something that
may prove far less profitable at this
time.

Junketing In Ute Name of Peace
The latest of Henry Ford's vagar- j
los ls the most remarkable of all. An
nouncing a peace mission to Europe, !
he charters a steamship and invites j
as his companions on this extraordi
nary errand a number ot more or less
conspicuous people; who ? presumably
share his -vi?, wa that it ls practicable I
to. get all combatants out of the |
trenches by Christmas V-If-Mr. Ford
were not a highly sucbea?ful business |
baan-and .'ono ot the shrewd?st adver
tisers alive," we would' 'suspect that |
this latest posturing ari a peace angel |
was a symptom of insanity.
Leaving the United - States, as it I
must, without a vestige of official
sanction, this remarkable expedition
will arouse the wonder -ot belligerent j
Europe. Public quarrels aro not set
tled by private intervention or me-1
di at ion. Mr.- Ford and his mission
aries will obtain no access to gov
erning authorities to whom they are
not officially accredited. Their futile
parading in capitals where they a-o
not desired, and vc aero they were not
invited, will me-.dy arouse curiosity
