Notwithstanding the low price of cotton and the prospect for the next crop to bring still lower prices, and the recommendation of the farmers' late convention at Jackson, I believe this section, of the courty will plant rs !arj" a crop as last y?ar. The idea seems to be with most fanners that everybody else is going to decrease their crop in accordance with the Jackson conven tion, and therefore the price will be en hanced, and each one secretly resolve to plant a big crop and be "in the swim" to financial success next fall. Of course every one who adopts this theory will be disappointed. Had the Jackson convention adv-aed the cotton raisers of the S'outh to bend nil their energies to raining a twelve million bale crop this year, there would have been seme likelihood of the crop being decreased. Our people are beginning to talk about the coming county and State election and discuss tho merits and de merits of the few known candidates for the differsnt offices. I would humbly sucgesttnat tnose who are candidates for the different offices of the county should let the people hear from them at once, so that they will have ample time to weigh the claims of each, and be able to go out to the primaries and choose the very strongest and ablest men we have for the different county offices. AVe may, in this canvass, be called upon to lay afide our personal preferences f r the general good of our party, aud if called upon to do so, let no Democrat hesitate an instant be tween personal friendship and party success, Our friendi, the Populists, are well organized and will warmly ontest for contiolof our county affairs, elated and braggii g as they are at hav ing carried the county at the last No vember election by the "whaling, over whelming and unprecedented" majority af 11 vofes! And this bv the perfidy of a few eo-callel Democratic voters, who, to gratify their own personal spitp, refused to vote for, or openly knifed, our nominee for Congress, John Sharpe Williams. And, by the way, will not some of these so-called Demo crats I e soon in the field asking the "dear people" for some of the offices in their gift? If eo, gentlemen, just trot tight out nt once, and when our pri maries are held, the people will teach you that thera are no rewards in the Democratic party foi those who desert ber cause in the hour of battle.
