There is one this year. No rules
for the holding of the regular Demo
cratic primary have been laid down
and this convention will do that. It
will write some sort of a platform,
will fill vacancies and of course fix
the time of the State conventinn. It
will name z day for precinct meetings
md county primaries for the -selection
cf delegates to the various con
rations. It will fix a common day
tor holding county conventions.
The convention itself loses greatly
in importance each year. It cannot
manipulate now as the time-honored
Institution once did. The primaries
settle everything. Of course, the
State convention called in conjunc
tion with the meeting of the executive
committee Tuesday night, March 5, in
the" Senate chamber, will be held in
advance of the regular June primary.
The Republicans have not justified
(he Democratic complacency. Per
haps there would have been no such
talk if the Republicans had not over
looked their convention. In the 1915
eampaign they took such an early
start that they were having their , ex
ecutive committee meeting in Novem

They had a disastrous year in 1916.

f- Today is the horse breeders' op
portunity. The world's horse market
must te restocked. The European
war is depleting this market daily
and European horse breeders have
ceased activities almost entirely.
America is called upon to furnish im
mense shipments of horses and
mules for overseas and unless this
continent's output cf these animals
is increased greatly and speedily, the
already existing scarcity will develop
into dearth. Prices paid for horse
flesh have already soared to undreamed-of
i Western Canada offers all the
needed essentials for the successful
breeding of horses and Canadian
farmers are not blind to their oppor
tunity. Greater areas of new lands
are being broken each season and,
while many tractors are used in this
work, a majority of farmers still
cling to horse power. This creates a
large local demand for heavy draft
; horses. A demand greater than the
present supply. A demand that calls
: for an immense increase in this in
dustry. Western Canada's climate,
water and .feeds all make for fine
draft horses and particularly Perch-
erons. the best liked horse in Canada.

Morehead vs. Simmons.
Guerilla warfare against the Dem
ocracy is certain and whether there
is a real State organization doing bat
tle, it is general Republican comment
that John M. Morehead will oppose
Senator Butler has promised to do
this if Morehead will not run. Should
Morehead make the race, Butler would
be in readiness for Overman, two
years hence. The former Congress
man from the. fifth has given no in
terviews on hs own hook, but men
who know talk about the race. The
Hickory meeting in November seeni3
to have had a good deal of this in it
and as a pre-election get-together was
highly successful, but there is no
more from it.
It is said by Charlotte Republicans
that Mr. Morehead thinks highly of a
proposition to put a big Republican
daily into the field when, he gets in
the race. It would be edited in Char
lotte and nobody would expect that
it have any other mission than ad
vancing Republican doctrine. Mr.
Morehead has a vast amount of money
which he could spend easily in this
way. There is a great deal of par
tisan dissatisfaction with both Dem
ocratic dailies in Charlotte. All those
are promised by Republicans wo pre
tend to, know the plans of Mr. More
head and his associates.

Mr. E. A. Davenport, a successful
Alberta breeder oi Percherons for
many years, contends that environ
ment is at times more powerful a
factor than heredity; that the best
strains will deteriorate if placed in
unfavorable environments. Western
Canada, he claims, has soil suitable
for the growing of feed that will
produce strong, perfect and enduring
frames; has a bright, pure and brac

development and blood-building; has
sufficient mineral matter in food and

isin fact, the ideal environment for
the breeding of draft horses.
Mr. Davenport lays stress on the
commercial value of bran as a horse
food. It develops the strong bones,
dense tendons, tough hoof s. and pow
erful muscles for which Canadian
horses are already famous. He
claims that Western Canada can .al
most better than any other section
of the country, produce draft horses
of ideal quality and development as
regards frame, vigor, stamina, con
stitution, action, docility and dura
bility. The Canadian bred Percherons
combine the essential ; requirements
necessary in a horse that works hard
either in the city or upon the farm.
D. Potter and Mr. R. R. Stone, It is
announced, and the vessel will con
tinue to operate between this city
and Southport, making as many trips
daily as necessary to accommodate
passenger travel and freight. The on
ly changes anticipated will be with
the object of improving the service.
Captain Potter, who was born at
Southport and who; was for. many;
years a. resident of tills '.city, was, as
sociated with 'the late Cabt. John W.
Harper and this fact, makes him all
the more determined to keep the Wil
