The New Adm;nisteation. '1
As a~ readers knowthe new state ij
adloinistration is now installed in 8
pfice. Goy. Heard and Lieut. Gov. r
Jstopinal were sworn in last Monday
week, andl the other state officials
have qualified ; so that the adwinis
tratiou has begun its official life.
It has come into lwer under
extrsordinary conditions; it has an
puited party at its back, a general t
assembly entirely Democratic, and
pemocrltic local administrations I
\ hroughout the state. Under such 1
favorable conditions much will be
of it; Will it respond to the
eral expectation ?
SENTINEL believes it will.
Gov. bIard is a man of much execu
tive abilSy and firmness of charac.
ter, patriotic and devoted to duty,
qualities whidb go far towards mak
ing good and Oecessful executive.
He is thoroughly' .familiar with the
finanoes of the Stab and his ex
perience of public agts, gained in
his service as auditor duying eight
yers, will prove invaluable to him
in the administration of the abirs of
State in the wider field of 4ra
tion to which he has been promot.
Already Gov. Heard has given in h .
message the key note of his adirinis
.ration:-the faithful and impartial
Rexecutloi of the law. Those who
know the sincerity of the mi"n ! :"i
an abiding faith in his public ; . ...
tions, an.d know that this promise is
not an idle one.
The Uovernor will have able asse
tants in his corps of State officials,
all of whom have been tried and
found not wanting. In Judge Guion,
Lite Attoiney General, he has a dis'
cruet friend, a wise and conservative
legal adviser, and an indefatigable
All things cousilered there is
every reason for predicting that the
administration just started will be
wise, conservative, progressive, and
result in much good to the State and
to the inhabitants thereotf.
Mr. Bryan was asked the other
day whly he d(eclsrwi :
"Tihe people are with us this year,
and they are in sympathy with thŽ
principles which shall be embodied
in the Kansas City platform, and
which represent the feelings of the
great mass of the American people."
Anil his answer, which appeals to
every American citizen who has the
wef:tnre of his couqtry at heart, was:
"Bicause ever, principle of tlhe
lemnocratic party is a positive prn
clple of the Democratic party is a
aosittve principle, more positive than
was the declaration of the Republi
pan party in 1896, and while to its

"We want you toi handle our good s.

Two "Hissing Word" Platform. t
Political platforms, in order to be r
of value should say what they mean, t
and mean what they say. Our Re
publlcan friends are prone to take
things for granted. Thus the Phila.
delphia Press summarizes the Itepub- C
lican and Democratic platforms, up
to date as follows, without due regard
to the consequlences :
We are proud-
We heartily aupport
We repudiate -
We mourn -
We are ashamed -
a We disavow -
L Whereupon the Boston Herald
a remarks: "It is scarcely necessary
to say which is wLich."
Lest, however, there might be a
citizen whose arduous occupation in
I keeping bimself and family above
k abject want, should not have had
dime to solve the 'missing word"
i pbzzle, the Los Angeles Herald
comes to the rescue with the follow
10 lug solution :
. 'Wa endo a3c mpecri::liýe.

r Speaking of the eevation of
Governor Heard to tii. high position
or, (f chief executive of the State, the
h Baton Rouge 7reth wisely remarks:

e sands of plain peiople, as well as:
Sthose of high estate, are gladdened
' that it is so."
The Daily States. in an editorial
on the race question, says:
ns "'We have always regardedl these
ly theoretical discussions of the neg:o
of as utterly useless, holding that the
[e destiny of the negroes should be left
to to be worked out under the dynamic,
as static and re.triactive laws of the
o. human race among the people who
xl know and uuderrstad the negro best,
he and that under these laws the negro's
is destiny will be worked out either to
a higher life or to final extinction
ti For more than a qurater of a century
'o, past, first in one ncwspaler :rand then

ill natural condition of the. negro is one

the final extinction of the negio or.

gress of this law may be more or i:ba;
retard'ed byv cireumstances, among
them contact with the higher white
race. iit the condition of freedom
on the other hand accelerates the r
decay and progress of exthittion. 1
The point is that the negro is a
doomed race. In six thousand )ears
he has not written a book or reaiedt a
miomument or moved out of the
jungles in which his primitive ances

next six thousand years ? lie is

In some remote or unknown era of

made ab-olutely no progress except

that he is doomed in the end to
Cominisioner of Agriculture and
Immigration Leon Jastremski, in his
report, recently issued; has the fol.
lowing to say of tlhe importance of
cotton factories in the South:
-*The importance of cotton factories
as an aid or adjunct to cotton-grow
iug is generally recognized. These
factories would create a competitive
home demand for the raw cotton
against the markets of the eastern
States and Europe, and this corn mpet
tjin would naturally tend to laise the
price of cotton. I believe that the
recent improvement in cotton quota
tiuns is in a great measure attributa.
ble to the factories which have
e sprung up in the South and to the
movement for their increase, which
ought to be maintained until cotton
growing and cottou.manufacturiug I
becomes synonymous in the South. a
I have endeavored in every way to fi
co-operate with this movement and a
to encourage its gxtension to manu- r
factures of all other raw materials
produced or possessed by our State,"
