SOUTHERN FARMER LOVES
WORK < BETTER THAN MONEY
The Birmingham Ledger arises to
the defense of the southern farmer
and emphatically refutes the charge
of laziness which has been made
against him The instances cited in
this connection should prove an object
lesson to the average farmer which he
Till do V well to profit by Says the
Ledger
Some people on the earth accuse us
southerners of being lazy That only
shows that they do not know us The
life of the southern farmer is the plain
est evidence that be loves work better
than he loves money He will plant
twenty acres In cotton to make four
bales He walks over that twentyacre
field many times from the 1st of April
to the 4th 9f July Then he starts
over It again the 1st of September
and keeps at it till December picking
his crop Now the farmer could make
that four bales of cotton on five acres
by preparing his fertilizer in the
winter He could save nearly all that
plowing and walking but he will not
He plants that twenty acres year after
j year just to get more work than he
i needs
The farmer could make more money
l on potatoes and tomatoes than on cot
ton but those things do not need
so much work in hot weather There
fore ho will not touch them He could
make more money with fowls and
ihogs by giving his personal attention
hut those things do not require much
work and therefore the farmer will
not give any time to them What he
wants is plenty of plowing in the hot
sun His crops year after year show
that it Is work he wants and not
money One farmer in Jefferson coun I
ty sold 5800 worth of potatoes and
5400 worth of tomatoes last year and
did not raise a bale of cotton He was
not bunting work but money there
fore he was not a typical Alabam
t farmer The typical Alabama farmer
t is not jn pursuit of money he wants
work and all the work he can get to
make a crop that will pay his expen
ses He coukl make money much
Easier but that Is not his object in
life
lifeIt
e4 It is a slander to say the southerner
does not like work He does He
does not willingly adopt any of the
labor saving ways in house or farm
Everything he does shows that the
southerner does not try to avoid
work but actually seeks it

Savannah News
There is a feeling among men who
study the cotton situation that the
price of cotton will be 8 cents before
many weeks There was V very mark
ed advance on Tuesday andanother
advance yesterday Now spot cotton
is firmly held and there doesnt seem
to be any disposition to sell It at the
advance notwithstanding the fact that
It seems to be admitted that the gov
ernments estimate of the crop Isnt
far out of the way The fact Is the
stand taken by the farmers to hold
their cotton together with the belief
that the fall of Port Arthur will re
sult in a greatly increased demand for t
cotton goods from the Far Bast has
bad a bouyant effect on the cotton
market and the bears are now has
tening to cover their contracts I
Of course It will be some time be
fore the effect of the fall of Port Ar
thur upon the Far Eastern demand for
cotton goods will begin to be felt but
that there will be a greatly Increased j
demand there is no doubt Mr J J 1
Hill president of the Great Northern I I
Railway in an interview In New York 1
5 on Monday said that the FaV East
had taken only about 200000 bales of
I our cotton in the last year when as
a matter of fact It ought to have
I taken 2000000 Mr Hill is posted on I
the cotton situation so far as the Far II
East is concerned because his ships
transport the most of the cotton which
goes to that part of the world
We do not believe the movement
that was inaugurated in New York a1
few days ago to hold cotton through I
the agency of trustees will come to i
anything but there is no doubt that i
the cotton will be held for better
t
prices The farmers in whpse hands
the bulk of the cotton is are able to I
hold it It may be that much of the
cotton that is held by country mer
chants will have to be marketed in1
the very near future because as a
rule they are overloaded but that Is
not the case with the farmers The
most of them have sold enough cotton
to meet all their obligations and to
carry on their plantations during the
present year and they haVe the cour
age to abide by the policy they have
adopted
We pointed out a1 few days ago that
the negro tenant farmers and about
all at the white tenant farmers had
sold their cotton at profitable prices j
and consequently were In a better con
dition financially than they have been
in many years It IB only the large
farmers and country merchants who
have cotton it Is a safe conclusion
therefore that the quantity of cotton
that will be sold before there is a
very substantial advance in the price I
of it will be small

4 TROUBLE AHEAD FOR V
tG THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
c
s
I c1 + o0 if 9a obooa
Atlanta Constitution
The evidences of trouble ahead for
the republican party are many and
manifold During the nest four years
that party Is to have to face problems
calculated to make many a tried and
true old leader wish his party was
outside the breastworks rather than
holding responsibility for legisla
tion or for the lack of it
Distinctly the party of the protected I
trusts and the great corporation inter
ests favored by its legislation the G
I O P has fallen heir to the control of j
things at V a time calling loudly for
I tariff revision and corporation control
The responsibility resulting from these
conditions would not be light under
i any circumstances with Theodore
Roosevelt at the helm and by nis own
right the old stand pa leaders must
She forgiven if they take a rather
I gloomy view of the outlook
r Of the unrest of the people in the
face of existing conditions there can
bo no question In consequence the I
old leaders are by no means so cor
ain of their ability to control the
man in the white house as they have
been during the past three years and
there are good and sufficient reasons
for their doubts Then too they see
a strong disposition on the part of
certain ambitious republicans to take
advantage of tie existing popular
dissatisfaction and a willingness to
foment such dissatisfaction to their
own ends j
The upturning of corporate control
cf the republican party In Wisconsin
ic but one of several manifestations
on this line Governor Cummins got
J lot of support for a similar crusade i
Diu Iowa but he proved a flash in the I
pan not having the fighting capacity I
of La Follette In Minnesota too the
I
clouds are gathering Governor Van
San Is manifesting a strong desire to
appropriate to himself some of the
usufruct from the Northern v Merger
case which was of his doing even If j
the country was asked to give all the
credit to President Roosevelt Gov
ernor Van Sant has announced his
candidacy for the senate against r1
Clapp the present incumbent and he
makes his canvass on an anti ora
tion platform
in consequence Mr Clapp is in
trouble But lie is going to have I
many companions in trouble among
his republican brethren iu tho near
future He will net be lonely
