Calling upon independent and liberal
voters to meet in a national convention
to be held in St. Louis on December 9th
next, the Committee of Forty-Eight,
with headquarters at 15 East . Fortieth
Street, New York, has .issued a state
ment discussing the present political
situation, and denying that there is any
hope of a real reconstruction program
from either the Republican or Demo
Delegates from all -of the Forty-Eight
States will attend the Conference which
will consider a tentative platform, deal
ing with social, economic and political
issues. At this Conference, the advis
ability of forming a new political party
will be discussed, as well as the coali
tion of the Committee with newly
formed labor and farmers' organizations.
The Committee was formed last March
and now has representatives in each
In its care for the St Louis conven
tion the Committee pays its respects to
the old political parties in the following
"The dominating groups of the two
principal political organizations "do not
desire, and do not even understand, that
free citizens should determine their own
political and economic life. They have
so long weighed the world above the
fact that facts for them have no mean
ing. They have turned over the actual
govrnment of the land to reactionary
and predatory interests and contentei?
themselves with the honors and emolu
ments of office as the servants of these
"They have made public confession
that between them lies no question of
political debate save the one of deciding
which group shall enfloy the possession
of public office.
"They have lost contact with the needs
and desires of the people that they
might maintain contact with the needs
and desires of the rapacious interests.
"They have levied huge loans and
raised great sums by heavy taxation,
necessitating a careful economy on the
part of citizens, while government itself
Gis-burses the money thus obtained with
"They have, by the inevitable inflation
which resulted from these methods and
by their failure even to attempt the
wise stinmlation and regulation of pro
duction and distribution in this critical
period, permitted the cost of living to
reach a point where the mass of the
people are reduced to silent desperation
and the interests are glutted with ex
"They have connived at the wrecking
and looting of the transportation sys

at the public charges, to those very in

Saturday, September 20 was observ
ed as Welcome Day for the returned
soldeirs of Camden County, and one of
the biggest celebrations ever held in the
county was staged at Camden Court
Hous Probably the most popular fea
ture of the day was the splendid pienic
dinner served on the grounds by the ex
cellent housewives of Camden county,
to which everybody was invited, and
two members of the INDEPENDENT
staff received far more to eat than mere
newspaper men are ever suposedyto get.
Take it from us, that was SOME din
ner! For the sake of those of our read
ers who were not so fortunate as to
be there, and who have a daily wrastle
with Old Man High Cost of Living, we
will not tell about the delicious fried
chicken, the real old-fashioned country
ham, the excellent cake, and the multi
tude of other delicious things to eat
that were served there, but will content
ourselves with merely stating that it
was the kind of dinner which has made
the hospitality and splendid cooking of
Camden county people famous over all
this part of the State.
Ziegler's Band from Elizabeth City
was on the scene, and entertained the
crowd with well rendered selections of
popular and patriotic music. There was
public speaking, too, by master of cere
monies, Tillett, the Hon. H. S. Ward,
Lieut. Pugh of Old Trap, Sergeant Need-
ham, Camden's World War hero, wh
was wounded three times and received
a medal for distinguished gallantry, and
others. Everything considered, it was
a celebration worthy of the historic -county
in which it was held. Attorney D.
H. Tillett and the Camden County Coun
cil of Defense, of which he. is chairman,
together with the Camden County Red
Cross, deserve much credit for the suc
cess of the day
Considerable dissatisfaction has been
J expressed in the State and elsewhere
' over the minimum price of 36 cents for
cotton which was fixed at New Orleans
j convention of the American Cotton As
! sociation a few weeks ago. Growers are
of the .opinion that the minimum should
have been placed at a higher figure, and
it is probable that the executive" com
mittee of the Association -will soon raise
the minimum adopted.
