Although his platform, which in its
present unhoed state comprises thirty
six long typewritten sheets, is supposed
to be a vote-getter, it d-ies not appear
how Farmer luman hopes to win the
South by his negro pin ik. Perhaps the
fearlessness of his convictions has made
the es-Pennsylvanian forget that the
land beyond the Mason-Dixon line may
not care to exalt the colored man.
"In realisation ol the fact that South
ern planters anil others nave grown
wealthy by slave and other degrading
labor," reads his unique ukase, "as a

nicely anil they to k part in tbe various
discussions in an intelligent manner
imiea-d. I found them to be a very prx-gres-ive
class of people and ur-to-dale
in the way of doing things.
"We were strongly impressed with the
immense forest and mineral resources ot
that region, but g'eater than all was the
large scope of phen in n.illy rich land,
suitable for dairying. In fact we regard
this section as destined to become the
foremost dairying part of the Stat .
While other localities, like Tillamook
Clatsop and coast counties are also well
adapted for such a purpose, yet Coos
county seems to possess a larger area of
fine dairy land. Also, this region seems
to enjoy a wider range ol plant growth
than many of our sections have. For
instance we found the best fodder corn
'hat we have found am where. Red
clover and vetch also thrive here, in
large crops ami 1 have no doubt bat
w hat alfalfa would do nicely. We also
saw root crops, such as mangles, and
carrots that apparently will yield from
fif y to eighty tons per acre. It is a
splendid place for growing barley and
not infrequently it yields one hundred
bushels to the acre.
"Indeed, dairying seems destine.1 to
become one of Coos county's greatest
sources of wealth. 1 he building ol a
new railroad out that way means much
for that entire region. I verily believe
that land out there will be worth from
two bundled and fifty to four hundred
dollars per acre, inside of ten years, if
the railroad is built."
