The high price of cotton has largely increased the exports of the United States and has given to the South an importance that should force, through Roosevelt densely clouded negro policy, into his mustard-seed brain, the truth that Southern interests demand protection rather than insult. The present prosperity of the South is but an advertisement of that which is to come. The South is now the field for young men. It is also the field for capital and enterprise. It is the greatest section of the Union and Louisiana is its gate way to the world. Railroads and factories of all kinds are coming to Louisiana, and in less than a decade she will reign as the empire state of the greatest republic the world has ever known. The impress of her greatness is gradually forcing itself upon her sister states, and the exposition at St. Louis next year will be a crown for her imperial majesty. Louisiana is good to look at, good to live in, good to prosper and grow in. She is the best spot on earth circumscribed by political boundaries.
