Pinch and family took their departure for San Antonio Monday where the noted llaptist preacher will re-engage in evangelistic work. During his two years residence here he made friends of all people and when he preached his farewell Sunday night the city churches adjourned services and the .Methodist quarterly conference gave up its evening service to join the con gregation of the First Baptist church in bidding its beloved pastor farewell. Short addresses were made by Presid ing Elder Cochrane, of the Methodist church ; Kev. K. C. Morgan, pastor of the Methodist church; Kev. Duncan Matheson, of the Presbyterian church; the Rev. Theodore Piatt, new pastor of the First Baptist church, and Rev. 0. T. Finch, retiring pastor, who bade a most affectionate fare well to his church and the city he has loved so well. Saturday evening Rev. ; Finch and family were invited to din ner by Deacon A. B. Daniels, and about 8 o'clock were surprised by a large body of his parishoners who came with a well filled purse, and number of useful gifts of silverware, appropriate addresses being made by (By Gilson Oardner.) AVashington, D, C, Dec. 17. The president's recommendation in his an nual message that congress provide a federal act for choice of presidential candidates by direct primaries, doing away with the old convention system, has created a very mixed political sit uation. This move took everybody by surprise. The unexpected feature is jrcj.aSsociation. that which suggests a federal act tor the primaries instead of state legisla tion. The Baltimore platform had the following to say on this subject: "The movement towards more pop ular government should be promoted through legislation in each state which will permit the expression of the pref erence of the electors for national can didates at presidential primaries." In his message to congress Presi dent Wilson said: "1 urge the prompt enactment of legislation (by congress of course) which will provide for pri mary elections throughout, the coun try at which the voters of the several parties may choose their nominees for the nresidency without the interven- possibilities horinou. A lot of reactionaries lu both par ties are secretly, but bitterly, opposed to presidential primaries. The get-together wing of the sometime Republi cau party have nothing to gain by it. in a presideniial primary it is evident that the Progressive candidate, who will doubtless be Theodore Roosevelt, would clean up any trimber like Had ley, Borah, or Cummins. In fact, u primary would eliminate the so-called leaders of the party and smash Che remnants of a party machine. Tha national committee and convention manipulators would cease to be the party and would cease to name the candidate, with the result that there would be one opposition candidate to the Democratic candidate and that the Democratic candidate would be Wood i,. x Wilson. Thus observe equally op-IK-sed to the primary suggestion (. ..aniD Clark. Oscar Underwood and tlio senatorial-presidential-lightning- jffLIGHT tion of nominating conventions Until this declaration by the presi dent nobody had any idea that con gress would even think about presi dential primaries. The matter would be left to the Btates, and in many states it would be neglected, with the consequence that there would be the same old go-as-you-please combination of primaries and convention system with opportunity for scheming, trad ing, and wire pulling as in the past. It is a sensational recommendation that congress should provide a uni form primary law for all parties. Nobody who is informed question that this can be done. Primary elec tions are not elections provided for by j the constitution, and therefore they j are not subject to the constitutional ! limitations governing such elections, j Congress could provide the machinery j for a primary of red-headed men, if it a .hiirofi n mnv nrnviile for ft nrimarv I in which women may vote alongside of men in states where women would The rude things that Mr. Hobson is saving about Mr. Underwood make it dimcult for the latter to remain the so . ue and unruffled candidate for the United States senate. Hobson is a very rude person in his political be havior. Imagine, for instance, trying to look calm and statesmanlike in the sight of galleries packed with enthu siastic and yelling prohibitionists, while Mr. Hobson gets off stuff like :he following, which is carefully re produced from the Congressional Record: "I laid the question of my opponent's affiliation with sinister in j terests before congress in due order," ! ?aid Mr. Hobson. "What I said about the gentleman then and what I say about him now is absolutely true. My epponent voted for liquor in the elec tion in his home county, and every t-traight liquor man in Alabama and i very straight liquor paper In Ala bama today is lined up like a solid wall behind him. I know that the gentleman is of the highest type of character and that he lives on a high moral plane himself; but that only makes him the more dangerous end makes it the more pitiful that we should find such interests as Wall street trying to capture our party and such interests as the deadly liquor in terests trying to capture the state of Alabama behind such a high-class re actionary leader as is my opponent."

Farmers in the vicinity of Iteming are taking advantage of the delightful winter to build underground silos, and will next year be prepared to enter into the dairying business in real ! earnest. In this connection it is Inter esting to note that the annual report of President A. A. Temke, of the Item ing Chamber of Commerce, that por tion referring to development being as jj follows : "The work of development in "e 7 " tt,nuu "'una forward. It is conservatively estimated that during the past season there have been and are now in actual cultivation 10,0000 acres and with the work now being done by the Alfalfa Farms com pany and allied corporations common ly known as the Miesse people, by the Uio Mimbres Irrigation company or what is known as the Spalding-Fisher tract, by the Deming Dairy & Alfalfa Farms company, successors to the Home Plot & Deming Real Estate and Improvement company, and by the Alfalfa Farms & Orchards company developing the land of Lester & Slier- j man, alone will, I am confident, show from 35,000 to 40,000 acres in cultiva tion before the close of another year to say nothing about the additional development that will be done by individuals."

Postmaster Foulks has built large section to handle parcel post packages, and al though the compartments are from about 3x4 feet in size and they art kept full most of the time. Post master Foulks estimates that the com ing week the business will be prac tically doubled which will tax the limit of his office, although the work ing space has been enlarged by the addition of another building during the present year. An incerase of over 8f per cent vas shown last year, and the coming year it will be practically doubled. convenient for the many in both par ties who would like to dodge this recommendation. It is beginning to dawn on some people that the president's desire for a popular primary on presidential nominees is his method of dealing with that paragraph in the Baltimore platform which reads: . "We favor a single presidential term, and to that end urge the adop tion of an amendment to the constitu- tion making the president of the Unit-1 ed States ineligible for reelection, ' and we pledge the candidate of this j convention to this principle." ' A convention ia which President j Wilson had no part and was not pres- j ent, pledged him to the principle of j serving one term in the White House, j His reply, as many view it, is a Bug- j gestion that the people be permitted freely to choose their candidate for the presidency. He evidently is will ing to take his chance as a presi dential primary candidate with any For quick results, i little "WANT."
