Jamaica says E. Y. Boyd, extension
tobacco specialist at State College,
who has conducted field testa with
the crop in all parts of the State dur

In making suggestions for growing
the crop this year, Mr. Floyd gave as
his opinion that only those acres of
tobacco should be grown that may
be propery cared for after all the
food and feed crops and a large gar
den have been provided. The tobacco
should certainly be set on the most
uniform, well drlained soils. Every
seed planted should be cleaned and
treuted for disease and the seed beds
should be located with a southeast 1
exposure on a well-drained loamy Boil.

la l*r Mir Waller Hotel.
Raeigh. Feb. 18.—There will be no
additional candidates for the Demo
cratic nomination for Governor, ac
cording to a growing conviction in
political circles here. It is also being
generally admitted that there seems
to be a alow but steady growth in the
sentiment for J. C. B. Ehringhaus
since Josephus Daniels announced he
would not be a candidate for the nomi
nation. A good many are for the first
time venturing the prediction that
Ehringhaus will be the next Governor,
based on the gains he has made since
Daniels turned on the political spigot
which he had been holding closed by
his indecision as to his own course.
The belief on the part of some of
the Daniels supporters that either A.
D. Mac Lean of Beaufort county or
Tom McNeill of Robeson, might be
come candidates seems to have faded
already, since not even the. echoes
have whispered their names where
there was a definite and concerted de
mand for Daniels. Nor is it believed
now that the revivified boom for Gen
eral Albert L. Cox of Raleigh has got
ten much beyond the city limits of
Raleigh. True, there are some here
who still think Cox may become a

candidate, especially if he can get the
support of Daniels and a part of the
Daniels’ following. But a majority of
the observers here feel that now since
Daniels has declined to seek the nomi
nation that he has sacrificed a good
deal of his influence and that he is
not going to be able to deliver the
support of those who were wanting
him to see kthe Governorship, even
should he try to do so. Only a very,
very few think there is any possibility
that Willis Smith, also of Raleigh,
will now seek the nomination. There
was a time when Smith was on the
verge of making the leap and would
have done so with very little urging,
even with Daniels looming as a pos
sibility. But few of his friends now
think he has any intention of getting
into the frgy. ; f? '•
Another thing that has proved some
what surprising in political circles
here and especially pleasing to the
friends of Ehrlnghaus—and not so
pleasing to the A. J. Maxwell and R.

apparent refusal of the Daniels fol
lowers to enter the Fountain camp or
to go over to Maxwell. So far as can
be learned here, very few of those
