Where He
"Every time heretofore that weroad8f and thatif aobunty cannot
bare sent a candidate to the Leg
islature from our county," said a
publio spirited citizen to the writ
er yesterday) "we have been buying
a pig in a poke. We didn't know
where he stood about anything .
In fact, a oandidate seemed to
think it his chief purpose to keep
the people from knowing where he
stood instead of to let them
know." .
"But we are going to change all
that this year," he went on. "I
don't know who's going, to be oar
Senator, but one thing sard, ie
has got to tell the people where
he stands. He has got to give ue
bis platform."
It is "to be hoped that voterB in
a thousand counties in the Sooth
are feeling the same way. Oar
farmers need to give less atten
tion to electing candidates aud
more attention to selecting them.
Have a county platform if possi
ble, but if you can't get that, at
any rate make every candidate for
the Legislature give his views on
all snob issues as we suggested
last week, and then vote for him
aooording to whether his platform
is good or poor.
The only real test is as to how
a oandidate stands on these mea
sures for the upbuilding of the
county and the State. We hva
eaid that we want to see more farm
ers in the Legislature, but we
had rather have a constructive,
progressive lawyer any time than
a standpat, unprogrsssive farmer.
We have known some farmer leg
islators who had become ultra
conservative and "set in their
ways" and did more harm to the
farmers' interests than anybody
else in the Legislature. The Pro
