Plans Being Made for Labor
Chicago, Aug. 18.-A national
labor party will be formed at a con
vention here in November as a re
sult of steps taken today at a con
conference of labor organization
representatives of several States.
A temporary executive committee
was named to call the convention
on a basis of one delegate to each
central ' labor body, of which there
are 760 in the United States and
one delegate for every 500 mem
bers of all labor party groups and
all local unions.
A constitution and platform will
be formulated at the convention
and decision made as to what con
ditions will be entered in 1920 it
From 1,900 to 3,000 delegates
are expected at the convention, ac
cording to a State labor party.
A resolution was adopted en
dorsing the Plumb plan for opera
tion of the railroads as advocated
at the recent committee hearing in
"The new party will represent the
six million members of organized
labor in the United States and will
have the cooperation of non parti
san leagues and farmers' organiza
tions in various states," said Robert
M. Buck, editor of the official news
paper of the Illinois Labor Party.
A national lecture bureau commit
tee was named to arrange for the
tour of Arthur Henderson, secreta
ry of the British Labor Party, in
the United States next October. It
was announced his lectures on the
workings of the British Labor par
ty would be a factor in strengthen
ing the new party.

work tonight. I
Political Parties to Use Phono
New York, Aug. 17. Phonographs
will be used by both the Republican .
and Democratic parties in the ap,
proaching presidential campaign, it is
[ announced, the plan embracing a pro
gram which will permit the residents
of small towns and remote hamlets to
hear the speeches of eminent orators
at the same time that the records are
released in large cities.
The phonographic campaign will 1
be opened September 1, when records
containing, utterances by Attorney ?
General Palmer, speaking for the
Democrats, and others registering
the speech of United States Senator
Lodge, voicing the sentiments of the
Republicans, will be released. These
speeches will be reproduced at clubs
societies' headquarters, churches,
noonday meetings and in the homes
of the party workers.
Following the releases of the
speeches of Attorney General Pal
mer and Senator Lodge, other rec
ords will be distributed monthly and
it is expected that meeting places
and homes throughout the country
will echo and reecho with the words
of the orators as conveyed by means
of talking machines. The extent of
the part which phonographs may
play in the campaign can be estimat
ed by the statement that two manu
facturers of the machines are known
to have more than 2,000,000 phono
graphs in use in the United States.
Among the speakers scheduled for
phonographic oratory by the Demo
cratic national committee are Pres
ident Wilson, Secretary of War Ba
ker, Secretary of the Navy Daniels,
ident Wilson, Secretary of War Ba
former Secretary of the Treasury
McAdoo and William J. Bryan.
Former President Taft, Major
General Wood, Elihu Root, Chauncy
M. Depew and United States Sena
tors Johnson and Borah are on the
list of speakers chosen for talking
machine oratory by the Republican
Price For Ginning.
At a meeting of the South Caro
lina Ginners Association, held in
Columbia, S. C., at the Jefferson
Hotel, August 14, 1919, after go
ing over the matter thoroughly it
was decided that the Ginners
should secure for their services ren
dered in ginning a bale of cotton,
weighing 525 lbs. per bale $3.50,
and all in excess of 525 lbs. 70c
per hundred pounds, and $1.50 for
bagging and ties, making a total of
$5.00 per bale and wrappings this
being the same price that was fixed
by the Food Administration last
year. I trust that all ginners in
your section will adhere to this
