OFFICIAL COUNTY AND CITY PROCEEDINGS
UNCOVER ALL THE FACTS.
The Jones Shipping Bill,' passed by congress and made a
law of the land by executive signature, directed the president
to create a shipping board of seven members. For over three
months the president ignored that law. He did not appoint the
Shipping board members. He nullified this portion of the law
just as he nullified that portion of it which directed him to
notify foreign nations of the abrogation of any portions of
existing treaties in conflict with the Jones enactment.
Whether his eyes Were fixed on "visions on the horizon"
or his ears attuned to non-existant "voices in the air," whether
he was in a trance or in full possession of his senses, the fact
remains that the president signed the Jones bill and that by
virtue of his signature the bill became a law.
What was behind his failure to appoint a shipping board
as the law directs is not as yet clear. All we know is that while
the shipping (board was only a rump board consisting of a pair
of hold-overs, the Hun-Hamburg-Harriman shipping transac-
tion was rushed through to a conclusion. This partnership with
a concern whose treacherous conspiracies against this country
and whose impudent meddling in our domestic business affairs
should make it an object of loathing to everybody with a spark
of American manhood in him, was consummated over the com-
bined protest of over 100 American ship-owners and over the
protest of Mr. Robert A. Dean, the shipping board's own chosen
legal adviser. It was consumated by the two shipping board
hold-overs in default of the legai shipping board, non-existent
through President Wilson's nullification of a plain mandatory
law of the United States.

Admirathat BensonprotesMr. Donald. They felt, it the of their
own legal adviser and of 100 ship-owners might perhaps be
entitled to some little attention. So they turned the protests
over to a referee to pass upon. And the referee whom they
elected for a judicial review of all the'arguments covered by
the combined protests was one of the principals in the Hamburg-
American-Harriman bargain-r-Mr. Harriman himself. Why
jthey did not refer the matter to Von Tirpitz and the Hamburg-
American Line administration board is not disclosed. Possibly
because it was thought that an American name would look
/feetter. Besides, it made no difference anyway. The Harriman
decision was precisely what the all-Hun decision would have
been. The Amrican-Hun bargain got a clan bill of health, and
the bob-tailed shipping board approved the arrangement as it
MOTOR TRUCKS ON THE FARMS.
The agricultural department has been obtaining the views
of farmers in the corn belt, and 831 of them who have motor
trucks are almost unanimous in the opinion that they will prove
eventually a profitable investment. However, results show
that the motor truck has not reduced farm expenses to any
degree up to the present time, and were it not for the fact
that the farmers agree that it "saves times," it is doubtful
whether the new acquisition to rural activities would be in the
popular class. It has been determined that the average truck
used on a farm travels 2,777 miles a year, and the cost of opera-
tion is almost seventeen cents a mile, making the total cost of
one of these "pesky critters" about $470 a year.

CONFERENCE TO COMBAT
THE GREAT RED PLAGUE
The heavy loss in working days
due to the ravages of the Great Red
Plague will be one of the most im
portant subjects to be discussed by
the Ail-American conference that
will meet in Washington, December
6th to 11th to consult on methods
of combatting the pleague.
The extent of this loss to employ
ers whose working forces it decim
ates, to working men whose pay en
velopes it depletes, and to the coun
try at large whose production it re
duces, was scarcely suspected until
the Army records of the millions of
young men examined for the war
were studied. But then it was sus
pected to be great, but no one imag
ined that it was anything like so great
as it has now'been proved to be.
The records show that every
thousand men in the army lost on an
average more than 300 days per
year1,600,00 days for five million
soldiers in the prime of life, and if
the loss was so great among men sub
ject to military discipline and under
orders to seek immediate help, how
great, it is now asked, must it be
among the same men when in civil
life when no discipline is possible.
The ravages of hookworm disease in
certain parts of the country are a
drop in the bucket compared to the
ravages of the Great Red Plague.
Many possible methods of check
ing the plague in workshops and fac
tories have been suggested and will
be threshed out at the conference,
which will be attended by the most
experienced physicians and admin
istrators that the nations of the three
Americas can send.
There is today no longer any doubt
that medical science now possesses
means that would enable it to con
quer the Red Plague as completely
as it has conquered small-pox and
yellow fever if it were given free
scope to apply them. The real_
trouble nowadays arises largely frop*
ignorance and from the hesitation of.
so many sufferers to seek reliable me
dical aid until the disease has estab
lished itself and has become difficult
to dislodge. With modern methods
the Red Plague is now definitely cure
The conditions now confrontmgsthe
people of this country are somewhat
similar to those that confront the
British in their work of eradicating
the bubonic (black) plague in India.
There the first first thought of the
average native, when stricken by the
disease, is to hide himself in the
crowded warrens of the city and to
die there after exposing to his disease
everyone within reach. With the
British as with us the first problem
is to induce the victims to come fore
ward before it is too late.
Thru the efforts of the U. S. Pub
lic Health Service and others engaged
in combatting the Red Plague, many
of the states in the country have be
gun to provide facilities where its
victims can obtain adequate diagnosis
and treatment, including the admin
istration of 606 when required. Much
still needs to be done in. this direc
tion and it will be one of,ithe aims of
the conference to arouso states and
municipalities to a recognition of
their responsibility to their people.
