The curloua blindness the Bouth has always ahown In poll Ilea to Ita own material and Industrial Intervals haa hopvlcaly puulvd many Northern ob server.

Doubtloaa the very tn tenalty of political feeling In the South ha had much to do with the, chronic aubordlnatlon to mere political abstrac tions of Ita .naterlal needs and Inter cat.

We ran applaud the nre heartily, then, the recent out apokon dwlaratlona of two repreaenta tlva Mouthern nowapaper that the Houth haa auftVred and Is atlll suffer, lug from an eiroemlv dlveralun of Its energies from Induatry to politics.

The Com. merelal-Appeal la equally omphalic In Ita Judgment, "Call ft masa meeting," It says, "to d!rus waya and means of filling ft village office, and every able bdlrd male rltlxen In the community w III answer the roll.

Conoenlra. tlin of Southern effort In the single field of politics ha led to a Vlcloua eiploltatlon of p-dltlcal to the detri ment of aoclal, co nmerclal OJid mater ial Inlrreate.

Ullnded by habit, they have yielded to the lead ership of "rh-ap deinigoguea." aa the Comtnenlnl-Appeal colls them, "until these demagogues have come to the conclusion that they are In fact states men and aavlora of their country, when they are worse than the plagues of Kgypt nd ft nuisance to the communi ty which they Infest." The public opinion which sustains this leadership nia be hard to move, but It cannA long wlthetand uch shocks aa are given it In the candid and forceful dcclaratlone of the two Influential Southern newspaper.
