The St. Martinville Messenger says
that ''it is beginning to look as if
Governor Foster and Senator Mec-I
Encry will lead the opposing factions
in the next camp'aign." We c^nnot
believe that McEnery, with the rlice
he n,:-v holds, will enter the cmn
paig., ii: ,er any circumstaneis. We
hope :never to see such a bitter cam.
paign: as wau fought in the pnarty
with these two men n's leaders.
The lower house of the l'ennsvl
vania Legislature has adopted a
resolution authorizing the alppoint
ment of a committee of two Senators
and three members to cotnfer with the
Legislatures of other states with the
view of bringing ahout the submiis
sion of an amendment to the consti
tution of the United States whereby
they may elect the Prl'e-;dent, Vice
Preaident and United States Senators
by direct popular vote, this conit
tee to report to thile LegiIature in
1001. This is the only honest . ann ,
and every man holding oihce shouild
be elected by a tlirect vote of the
people. When this is done there
will be less corruption iai Ipolittes.
I)r. Sol. Mcl)owcll, a well known
cotton planter of Missisoippi, who
Ihns just finished nn inspection tonir
throngh thile counties of Bolivar,
Washington and Sharkey, ays tihe

he tinuks the cotton crp w1, iil not I,(
fnlly plauted bIefore the middile of
May. The stage of the riv r causes
the outlook to be more unifavorale.I
The average cotton !ante ', as w Il
as the labor, is di-heanrtened. lie
says he has been planting cotton
since 17, but this is the uniot un
-favorable season he thas v eV experi
euced. These conditions also pre
vail, he says, in CorthCern Lhouiciana
and western Arkansas.
