Ho heard tho President of tho
United States uvow that the fanner
must hayo long-tlmo credits to finance
his crops, and that agriculturo has a
right to as much consideration by the
bankers of tho country as any other
industry or business. The President's
address was a significant climax to

Back, of tho President's speech was
a consciousness of tho immense politi
cal power which tho bo-(""-i nsrrl-
ciiltnrnl bloc a group of Republican
as well as Democratic members of
Congress havo begun to wield as a
consequence of the active demands of
the farmers In the agricultural voting
districts of the country. And whilo Mr.
Vlardlnp sought to Impress his hearers
that the Issue was not ono of class or
a bloc, it was plain that tho farmer
at lost had made nla point and that
the summoning of tho conference it
self was a notablo victory.
Farmers of the academic type, dirt
farmers, editors of agricultural Jour
nals, Members of Congress from tho
farming districts crowded tho hall
where the President spoke. It was by
far tho most interesting conference
Washington hag seen in many a day.
For in the faces of the audience was
evident a tenseness and an alertiiess
which Indicated that mere words
would In the end not avail much.
Mr. Harding did not hesitato to
point out to tho farmers that tho bui-
Vlen la not altogether tho Goverr
ment's and that a way must bo found
by tho farmers themselves to cou
solldato their interests nnd help them
selves. But before tho Washington

a crystallized opinion on Government
aid to tho farmer In financing his

NEW YORK, MONDAY,
City's Own Valuations Dis
prove Claim Police Plan
Will Save Money.
FEWER STATIONS, TOO.
Part of Scheme Calls for
Scrapping Six to Build Four
' Deficit $708,000.
When Police Commissioner Enrlght
announced that ho proposed abolish
ing a number of old police stations,
and replacing them with othors he ex
plained that one of tho purposes of
tho chango was economy. j
To-day the Committee of tho Whole
of the Board of Estimate is consider-!
Ing the first request in tho Enrlght
"economy" plan. It la for eight new
sites and buildings for police stations,'
a new building to be used as a garage
andt tho alteration of a? number of
precincts. The cost of these Is es
timated by Uie Police Commissioner
at 12,035,000.- b
' .Being head of - the Police Don.irt-
mcfet, Richard E. EnrlghJ, will have
tho ''right to' mako tho first 'Selection
of- sites. It being then within the
province of tho Board of Estlmato to
approvo or disapprove. Tho. land may
bo purchased either at private sole, I
which,- however, must bo' conducted ,
by the Comptroller, or it may bo con- i
demned by Corporation Counsel
O'Brien and acquired in regular court
proceedings. But Commissioner En-
right will havo tho first pick. j
The, first police station tho Police
Commissioner would abolish Is tho
Oak Street Station. It is listed at No.
9 Oak Street and actually occupies the
property at Nos. 9 and 11.
Tho first step in the Enrlght "econ
omy" plan is to wipe out this sta
tion by turning It over to the Sink
ing Fund Commission and replacing'
It by the erection somewhere else of
a $175,000 station on a $75,000 plot,
total cost $250,000, The property to
bo abandoned is valued by tho city
at 60,000 $35,000 for landed $25,000
for the building. Real cstato men in
sist, however, that tho Oak Street
Station House Is not worth anything
like $25,000. But basing the entire
cost of tho property nt $60,000, Com
missioner Enrlght's "economy" In
this particular Instance will cost tax
payers $190,000, for that is tho differ
ence between tho city's Own estimated
value of the Oak Street Station prop
erty and the nejv site and building
which Enrlght would acquire
The next proposition In tho Enrlght
economy" plan is that tho Charles
Street Station at No. 135 Charles
Street, and the station at No. 2SS
Mercer Street be discontinued and
that one new site and building be ac
quired to replaco them. Tho Charles
Street property has a valuation on the
city's books of $100,000, of which $33,
000 Is for land. The property actually
runs from No. 133 to 137 Charles
Street Tho Mercer Street property
runs from No. 263 to 265 Mercer
Street and Is valued at $39,000, of
which $27,000 Is for tho land. The
total assessed valuation of tho com
bined Charles Street and Mercer
Street properties is $139,000.
