For the pnrpoae of dlsouulnK proposed
uniform legislation by the various
BUtes..cIooklor-''to the establishment In
this-, country of an agricultural credit
Cj'st'em'for the American farmer. Presi
dent Taft has lmlted the Governors of
all the States to meet with him at the
White House next December. The an
nual Congress of Governors is to meet in
December, and the State executives are
invited to come to Washington after
their deliberations as a congress are
completed.
President Tart's imitation to the Gov
ernors comes as the result of investi
gations made, at his direction, by diplo
matic officers of the government abroad.
Into the farmers credit ajstem adopted
In European countries The President
Is convinced, from reports already re
ceived, that similar institutions might
well be founded in the United States for
the purpose of financing the farmer. In
a letter written yesterday to the Gov
ernor or tacn state, the President de
clares that the adoption of such a sstem
of agricultural credits as he proposes to
submit to the Governors and Congress in
December will mean, besides cheaper
loans for farmers, greater productivity.
at less cost, from the farms now under
culm at Ion. and the development cf new
rarm lands.
Pattern After German System.
In his letter to the Governors the Pres
ident sa8, in part:
'A study of the recommendations of
Ambassador Herrlck. which I am send
ing you. convinces me of the adaptability
to American conditions of the Ralffeisen
banks of Germany. The establishment
and conduct of such banks are matters
for State control I suggest also the es
tablishment of land mortgage banks un
der State charters and the formation of
co-operative mortgage-bond societies
along the lines of the Landschaften so
cieties of German), provided that uni
form State legislation can be secured to
govern their organization and operation.
As a later step I favor the enactment
of latis by Congress permitting the or
ganization of national land-mortgage
banks, to be operated under strict gov
ernment supervision, with the power to
guarantee and market the guaranteed de
benture bonds of the State land-mortgage
banks or co-operative societies. I rec
ommend for your consideration the report
and recommendation of Ambassador Her
rlck. now published by the Department
of State for general distribution.
"The li.000.000 farmers in the United
States add each jear to the national
wealth S8.40O.000.00O They are doing this
on a borrowed capital of $5,400,000,000 On
this sum they pay annual Interest charges
of 310,000,000. Counting commissions and
renewal charges, the interest rate paid
by the farmer of this country Is aer
aged at SH per cent, as compared to a
rate of 4V4 to Shi per cent paid by the
farmer of France or Germany.
Interest Rates High.
"Again, the Interest rate paid by the
American farmer Is considerably higher
than that paid by our industrial corpo
rations, railroads, or municipalities Tet,
t think, it will be admitted that the se
curity offered by the farmer in his farm
lands is quite as sound as that offered
by industrial corporations. Obviously,
the advantage enjoyed by the industrial
crrporations lies In the financial ma
chinery at its command, which permits
it to place its offer before the Investor
In a more attractive and more readily
negotiable form. The farmer lacks this
machinery, and, lacking it, suffers un
reasonably. "The proposal which I make Is not to
subsidize the American farmer. Fortu
nately for this country he does not need
it. nor would he accept It What this
plan offers Is a means to secure to this
country greater productivity, at less cost,
from the farms that are now under cul
tivation, and, above all, to give us more
farms and more farmers. It will make
it more profitable for the farmer to
return to the cultivation of the aban
doned farms of the East and to open
up the last areas of unfilled land i.i the
West.
Under State Control.
"The entire field of agricultural co
operative credit is properly divisible in
to two parts- First, the cooperative
credit societies of farmers, formed for the
purpose of obtaining personal credit;
and, second, the societies or private cor
porations formed to create a sound se
curity In land mortgages for the purpose
of gaining a national or International
market for bonds based upon farm land
mortgages.
"It is not my purpose here to lay
down any one plan as necessarily the
one most suitable for adoption in the
United States. The most essential point
to bear in mind Is the need for the as
sumption by the Federal and State
governments of the responsibility for
economically and honestly conducted In
stitutions. Such assumption is the es
sentlal precedent for obtaining the con'
fidence of the American as' w ell as the
European Investing public"

In authorifrln Thlttecnthgftreet near
O Northwest. At -thjsfn of sVctocfc
yestarday afternoo-rne contractor who
U putting up thf building at TOS Thir
teenth Street backed a team of horses
into, the' small lnclosure where exca
vation of the sidewalk Is going on. The
animals stood across the sidewalk com
pletely blocking; It to the passage of
pedestrians. .
At this point, the sidewalk, which is
very wide on Thirteenth Street. Is fenced
off, all except about five feet next to the
curb.' It was within this lnclosure that
the wagon stood being loaded with dirt,
with the team standing across the five
foot "passage way. Outside the curb are
piles of brick, mortar beds and other
appurtenances of building which occupy
about one-third of the width of the
street.
Opposite TOS another contractor it put
ting up a'bulldlng. and while there Is a
plank sidewalk on that side, the street
space is occupied to about one-third of
Its width with material and the build
ing operations. This leaves only about
one-third of the street space for the
passing of vehicles.
Yesterday when the- sidewalk on the
west side of the street was shut off in
the manner described, a great many au
tomobiles and wagons were passing
along the street in both directions
Moreover hundreds of persons wera
seeking to pass on the sidewalks. To
pass it was necessary for all on the west
side to worm their way between brick
piles and mortar beds and take a des
perate chance in the narrow neck of the
bottle In dodging the vehicles.
It was hardly an even chance, and at
least one woman was caught in the Jam
and was saved from bodily injury only
by the carefulness of the drivers of
vehicles In not running In upon her.
Many had narrow escapes there jester
day while the laborers were deliberately
loading that wagon In the lnclosure at
T08
The public, probably, and surely The
Washington Herald. Would not ask
anything unusual or impossible of
builders while putting up structures any
where in the city, but the builders sure
ly do not own the whole street and both
sidewalks or even one of them. and. the
operation )esterday of blocking all pas
sage on the west side of Thirteenth
Street for a period of twenty to thirty
minutes, while the wagon was loading,
was, to say the least, an unwarrantable
use of a public thoroughfare.
The Washington Herald is under the
Impression that It was the duty of the
polleemin on the beat to keep that pas
sage of five feet on the west side clear
for the passage of pedestrians He was
not there st the time, and possibly was
not cognizant of what was going on. But
it is up to him to see that the fault Is
not repeated, and to look out for the
safety of people who must use Thir
teenth Street In the busiest part of the
day.
COMMISSION TAKES
UP EXPRESS CASE
Rate Redaction Vitally Affects Rail
roads, According to Brief Piled
with Interstate Body.
The Interstate Commerce Commission
has under advisement the Joint request
of the express companies of the country
and the leading railroads for a reopening
of the express case. In which the com
mission has established a block or zone
s j stem and materially decreased express
rates. The commission handed down its
decision last July and gave the express
companies three months In which to show
cause why the reductions and reforms
ordered should not be made effective at
once lo tne surprise of the commission,
when the hesrlng opened two or three
da) s ago attorneys representing the New
lorK central, the Pennsylvania system.
and other leading carriers appeared and
asked permission to be heard In other
words, filed Intervening petitions and al
leging that they were vitally affected.
The New York Central and Pennsylvania
attorrrejs asserted that the new ami
lower rates of the commission would
cause a loss to each of these roads of
approximately J1.SOO.000 per annum in
revenue derived from the express com
panies. Walker R. Hlnes. representing the ex
press companies, made the concluding
statement of the hearing before the com
mission yesterday. Mr. Hlnes filed a sc
ries of suggestions with the commission
for modification of the order, and In the
course of bis argument said that the
commission had furnished the express
companies with only about 25 per cent of
the rate proposed. Commissioner Lane,
in reply to this, said that the commission
had furnished the companies with Its
formula for making rates, and they could
or should work the rates out for them'
selves.
Mr. Hlnes said that under the new
rates there would be a tremendous loss
In revenue from small packages, and he
said that from tests made losses on small
package business would range from S3
to as high as 40 per cent.

'The Fifth Annual Session of the Na
tional Benefit Association, which met at
Calvary M. E. Church, In Philadelphia.
Fa., has adjourned. 8. W. Rutherford, of
this city, the secretary and general mans:
ger'of the association, who has Just re
turned, says:
''Upward of SO delegates were present.
and in every respect the session was a
very representative and enthusiastic
body.
"The session was opened with devo
tional exercises, "which were followed by
several able and Instructive addresses
and reports. The convention was pro
nounced the most successful ever held
by the association. It Is unique In that
It Is the largest Interstate colored body
In the country, as well as the only one
of Its kind.
"It closed with a grand concert and
muslcale. given by the various talent of
the agency corps, and under tbe direc
tion of Messrs. E. N. Broadnax and R.
W. Stewart.
"The practicability . of the business
principles of life insurance has been
thoroughly demonstrated In the success
of the National Benefit Association,
which carries aggregate risks of J3.0O0.
000 on the lives of 100.0CO policy holders
and pays to Its shareholders an annual
dividend of is per cent.
'The concern was organized In 1S9S by
a number of negro men and women,
who. realizing that they were not re
ceiving the consideration they were en
titled to by other companies, decided to
form a business organization ot their
own. Accordingly, with several other
representatives in and about Washing
ton. D. C, we procured a charter. For a
time the business of the organization was
transacted in one room, on the fourth
floor of the building at 09 F Street
Northwest. This structure Is now owned
by the organization. Is entirely free of
debt, and has recently been officially ap
praised by the Insurance Department of
the District of Columbia at JK.000.
"At first the operating territory of the
1IQ.V lUMlCdl was iiiaiuiy iua 1IBinCl Ul
Columbia and New Jersey. With the
Increase of Its capital the association en'
larged Its field of effort and benefit, and
about ten years ago commenced active
operation in Pennsylvania. Rhode Island.
Delaware, and recently in Mar) land.
"This organization has been singularly
fortunate In regard to Its investments.
Its present resources are 1150,000. "
Asked as to the association's compli
ance with the Insurance laws of the Dis
trict of Columbia, Mr. Rutherford said:
"The National Benefit Association has
always been one of the first to meet
any requirement of the Insurance Com
missioner, and only recently has made
a deposit of JCO.000 of approved security
as a Joint deposit for the District of Co
lumbia and the State of Mar) land for
the benefit, of all pollcy-holaera,
"Furthermore." Mr. Rutherford said,
"the Insurance Department of the State
of Maryland recently had a corps of ex
pert auditors engaged over a month per
sonally examining the entire business of
the association at the home office. In
this city, approving and appraising its
Investments, and as a result of this In
vestigation and examination has Just
Issued a very interesting and favorable
report on the association's work, condi
tion, conduct of Its business, and char
acter of its Investments, concluding with
the statement: The affairs of the asso
ciation are In a highly prosperous con
dition, and It Is well and economically
managed, and Its records are neatly and
accurately kept.' "
Dr C. A. TIndley, pastor of Calvary
M. E. Church. Philadelphia, and one of
the ablest preachers of the negro race
and a man whose heart and soul are in
the Improvement of the condition of the
race, made the comment at the conclu
sion of the association's convention that:
"The National Benefit Association, of
Washington, D. C, which held its an
nual session In the Calvary M. E.
Church. Broad and Fltzwater Streets.
Philadelphia, has merited the high
commendation which a generous com
munity U bound to bestow. In its
business management It presents un
mistakable evidences of the favorable
results of the race's short civic exist
ence, even though the sun of America's
great privileges and facilities has given
its light to this race through a hazy mist
of unparalleled prejudice and Inhuman
race hatred: despite all this, and the fact
that the race must make Its way through
hard and rocky soil, poorly irrigated
and hurtfully shaded by towering devel
opments and numerical advantages,
which are the inheritance and posses
sions of another race. Denied the chance
to earn wages like other men: denied
the chance to live in conditions condu
cive to health and social prosperity: de
nied the atmosphere pregnant with eth
ical and literary ozone so vital to the
life of other people, and many other con
ditions indispensable in making of a
people, this race has achieved the mar
velous heights Indicated In the .manage
ment and possess'ons of the National
Benefit Association, of Washington.
D. a
"Its president. Dr. Robart W. Brown.
is unpedantic. unpretentious, but cm-
able, clean, and good. Its secretary and
general manager. Mr. S W. Rutherford.
Is the embodiment of business, brother
Ilness. and becoming In every particular
appertaining to his office His wisdom
Is like the chemical properties of the
sun His words are like the dews that
fall. His actions are like the heat of the
sun. His presence is springtime among
his people. The field agents, branch
managers, and secretaries conform splen
didly to the magnificent character of the
president: they follow the wise leader
ship of the general manager.
The association is immortal. Its prin
ciples are eternal, its foundation is
righteousness Its superstructure is the
good of others. Its material Is that fine
stuff,'' love. Its final destiny is beyond
tne stars.
