Mr. V. :i. Kennedy of Trinity R. 1,
lias a splendid little farm under a
high state of cultivation. He has some
of the finest tobacco we have seen in
our rounds. Mr. Kennedy bought this'
farm three years ago and is extreme
ly loyal to 'this section and hats done
a great (tea! to show his neighbors the'
advantages Trinity township possess
es as a tobacco section.
In our article last week on the
wheat crop report of Mr. C. L. Hutch
eson a mistake occurred. The state
ment was made that he made 5o2'2
bushels of wheat on 14 acres. This
was wrong. He made. 452 bushels
on 14 acres.
All Democrats are sunosed to ail
here to the same principles. In other
words, they , are suposed to thinK
alike in matters pertaining to our gov
ernment. This being the case, they
should work together to strengthen
the party. We can not vote and fav
or all candidates for the same office
before the primaries, but we can and
we should treat all candidates with
the same courtesy and consideration.
It is not right to bring up an issue
against a candidate that will be taken
up and worked by an opposing party
in the general election. Any man who
has held office one or more terms has
a perfect right to run rigain when a
considerable number of his friends
insist on his doing so, if the law does
not limit the term of his office and
any man who feels that he ,can fill a
position acceptably to the people has
a perfect right to ask for the nomin
ation. Give the voters a chance with
out prejudicing them and they will
nettle these contest right.
