THE CONTRACT LAW.

V ti(!e i the labor sitiation in votr
ie v-aIialhwe paper. At the be-ginning
it will say that we had the best contract
r- law that existed, but to the -reed of
e some few farmers making advances to
r the laborer six months before the be
t ili fl' (i the contfrat, lay Brawleys
I- decision as to the contract law in this
Is 1aL,e at their owII (loors. In my opil
N i. Br:iwIev's Ilecision and tle repeal
r- of the lien law to follow will put the
e labor question r*-lit where it ou.-ht
- to be. As it was. a farmer who did
n-'t have money to advance the laborer
i- at 1he 1eginniri of the year. couldn't
d hire any; but as it is now. it puts us
a. all on the same basis, and if every
i- farmer will not hire his neighbor's
n laborer after he knows that he has
bezun work, why braw!ey's decision
e. will not affect him at ala.
Bear in mind that the lien law must
be repealed in addition to Brawley's
decision. As to the lien law, it has
done more to demoralize labor than
any other law in the statute book, in
my knowledge and only benefits the
iew and rabs the n1any. Do you know
t:lere are sapply merchants in
yoir eity who will buy a negro a mule,

Ir i mn;ey and a wi,'te farrcer, ownin
h his own farm. can't get one-third the
same amount of goods, and why? Be
e cause the supply man is afraid to
eo charge him fifty per cent, and he can
charge the laborer fifty per cent and
get what he makes when he can't do
d the land owner the same way as the
- courts won't sustain him; and then
the supply man is the first man to
jump on Brawley and the repeal of
S the lien law. Why? Why self inter
est. The man that. jumps on Braw
s lev's decision the hardest is .the very
man that can't employ labor except
XI by advances and encourages him to
e consmie his wages by August of the
's year that he is employed for, and
when he comes up and needs more
monev. what does that farmer say?
)r ''You have consumed your wages for
e this year, but if you will make con
tract for next year, why I can advance
a you what ~you want."
,*To illustrate as an old adage, the
eneg-ro has his hiand in the lion's
emouth and he has to pull to get it out.
But Brawley has put all of our farm
ters, as to the labor question; on the
same footing. Kill the lien law and
sthe labor question will be solved, and
severy farmer in employing labor, do
cunto his neighbor as he would have
ehim do unto him.
Another addition to the farmer
ewould be to make the vagrant law
wider and - the mayors and magis
trates see that it is enforced. Why
you can go to these- towns and find
k more, loafing in one day amnong the
:laboring class that ought to be at
n work than you can find out on the,
nfarm in three months. Why? Because
h the vagrant law is too lenient and the
authorities '-fail to enforce what we
have. Those in possession of the farms
acould manage the labor question if
they would only do it and live by the
SAnother thing will have to coine
tsooner or later as to this laibor ques
t tion. The farnier will have to be paid
high enough prices for the products
~of his farm so that he can pay as
much for a day's work as the manu
facturer pays. Bear in mind that we
have two classes of labor in this state
and we can't have a labor law that
will discriminate and stand the test
of the courts. Therefore, this is why
I claim that prices of farm labor
sand other labor will have to balane
each other. To institute Tillman 's
passport system as to labor among the
e farmers would assist the labor ques
~tion, too, not to make it a law, but a
ecustom among the employers of lab

tie S. S. board was beautifully re'n
dered by the white robed thron" of b)
children. A feature of the exercises
was the selection and rendering of a
few pleces of music by some of the
children severally. The school here is
small but its possibilities are great. a
By special request, Miss Mamye Crom- d
er of the Lebanon Sunday School sang -
very impressively a solo. Following
he childrdn 's exercises Mr. Jas. F. t,
Eptin,_, supenintendent of the Cen- r
tral Methodist S. S., at 'Xiwberry told E
of the work in his school which was
an inspiration to his listeners. This
is Mr. Epting's old home. sl
Mr. H. M. He:ry followed in a short
talk appropriate to the occassion.
The church was decorated with j
suitable mottoes suggcestive of the op
portunities of children. After a nice i
picnic dinner the afternoon was pass- n
ed in social conversation.
On Sunday notwithstanding the tj
threatening clouds a large number of j
peo-ple were early at Trinity. The
cburch was crowded and many had to
turn from the doors. 'T-he church was
tastefully decorated with evergreens I
and flowers. This is a large school and I
everybody who has ever been to Trin
ity knows how they sing. The variety lj
of the exercises was made possible by 3
such a large number and by the skill
with which they were trained.
I had intended inserting a copy of e
the program, but that would hardly
convey any adequate idea of the ex
ercises. There was searcely any re
spect in whieh they could have been
improved-the children were so well
tnained. The recitations were all t
spoken clearly and distinctly. The P
primary department was foremost in s
the exercises..Two little girls scarcely f
mnore than large enough to wal~k alone e
apparently sang Rock of Ages very
sweetly. This small children part,
was the .part which was so impressive.
Indeed we could see the ''kingdom in
the cradle." It -was an inspiration to
be present. A nice collection -for
needy schools was ta'ken. After lunch
on the grounds s'hort talks were made
to.-the children by Messrs. .Jas. R. Mc

These children days are not for 0
purposes of social enjoyment except x
in a limited sense but are to direct
