For Stuart in the Southwest. J "Of whatever shade of politi ical opinion, the Democrats of the Ninth district are unani? mous in giving to Henry C. Stuart most of the credit for the vnstly improved conditions of party utfairs in that section,*' Haul A. 11. Williams, of Wythe ville, at Murphy's last night. "Up to the time of his nomina? tion for congress the party was defeated, disorganized, demor? alised, Tho organization which j he effected has put new life into the situation, heartened every Democrat, and resulted in tho tiue showing made at the recent general election, when the dis? trict wont Democratic by a large majority. VI am safe in saying," con? tinued Mr. Williams, "tli.u the Democrats of the Ninth are as unanimous in their choice of Mr. Stuart for governor ttb they were i m Mnrtin and Swanson in the late primary, which is Baying II great deal. No one speaks put there of a possibility of Iiis defeat, and I am satisfied that he could poll ninety of ov? ary 100 votes east, no matter who might he bis oppose iit." Personally, Mr, Williams thinks tlie liest solution of the rcdistricting problem would be to put .Smyth county into the Fifth district, taking it from the Ninth.

It is believed that there is not a better climate for this industry in the winde country. The apple crop could be made a SOU TCO of great wealth to the farmers. Until within recent years lit? tle was known among the people of this region pi the im? portance of svsteiuatii care for fruit trees It has been demon? strated that orchard cull \\ ati?n and the spraying of fr ni trees, which will take up bid little time, are essential in ?1 ?? grow? ing of commercial U| -. and that without this cue il is hardly possible to grow market? able fruit. The planting of orchards is being undertaken by some of the farmers, but as yt>( there are lei large commercial orch? ards in this section. The bump? er crop of the present yeiir, to? gether with the khowletlue of spraying and orchard cultiva? tion., .should encourage the farmers of this region t? enter into fruit cultivation. It in hoped that the noil few years will prove a revelation from this standpoint. It will certain iy do much to increase the wealth of the farmer:', if tin y take advantage of the oppor? tunity:?Bristol Herald Courier. SOUTH VS. THE WEST Seattle, Wash., Dec. 15.?
