go a good ways towards securing his re-
election. We refer to his vetoing the
bill authorizing the Connecticut Riv
Railroad to water its stock $135.00 <

amount of stock issued is the basis u|«m

The abnormal condition presented of

the comprehensive view of the acreage

the farmers have done all in their power

exigencies of the case.

All Farmers Should Belong to the All!-
When we remember that the farmers
have been forced to organize because all
other classes are organized, and there
fore have the power, if they desire,
take fdvantage of the unorganized and
consequent helpless condition of the
fanner, It seems strange that any farmer
will stand aloof from the only organiza
tion which promises, any relief to the de
pressed Industries of our country,
to be presumed that what b for the wel
fare of one farmer benefits every other
fanner. Why, then, should only a part
ealbt for a fight that is to free all alike?
What would we think of the man who
would not help defend his own home,
but shot himself up securely in hb own
_ house and let hb neighbors fight intru
dms from hb door, and not only not
sist in resisting the power of those who
seek to despoil hb and hb neighbor’s
home, bat actually ridicules those who
art trying to purge the community
the would-be robbers or assamins? This
b exactly what those farmers are doing
who refuse to go into the order, and rid-
icnle the effort* of those who are striving
to bring about needed reforms.
There are farmers who, being "well
fixed In life themselves, and not feeling
the hand of oppression so keenly
seem to think that things are all right,
and that the forusen’ efforts* at

As an evidence of the care

also in the amount of stable manure

While the beginning of the season lias
not been such in some sections of ihe
State as wculd promise a hardy stand,
especially of cotton, yet we trust that
the recent rains, the results from which
we have received no official report, will
develop a more fnvorable prospect. The
State has been almost universally free
from late frosts, and but little damage

In thb crop the largest increase in
acreage is shown, amounting in Middle
Georgia to over 17 per cent, and ovar
the State to over 14 per cent. The gen
