HEARKEN I YE SONS QF EQUITY.
spirit of Equity
if. ripe, the world is yearning for
Equity, the Great God of Heavens
and Earth ha promised us Equity.
It is through our groat order that
equity will prevail. Wc invite tho
tmlers of earth to enlist with us; wo
kfik the co-operation of the friends of
the toller to lend us a helping hand.
We l)avc blacklisted none but the
wort cormorant who gambles in our
product or fixes a price balow the
rotl cf production. Our nation is
drifting on tho rocks of ruin and toward
the whirlpool of despair, and
it ran be saved only by the heroio
work of all patriotic Americans. The
Feciety of Equity will enroll all such
under its bannor. Co-operation of
the farmer, the merchant and the
banker will win, othor professions
will naturally follow in their wake.
Never was there a time when united
action was moro nooded. Tho panic
left the banks in a chaotic condition
a falling oil in deposits and millions
in paper that they must carry,
or erush thousands of farmors and
merchants if thoy forcod immediate
Fcltlemont. This has not only been
a less of vast sums in intcrost to the
Verrower, who hoped to sottled long
ago from sourees certain, but it is
withholding tbo monoy from the
bonafide speculator who would use
tie same for the benefit of trade.
Tbc merchants aro perhaps the
hardest pressed of all businosa men,

being busy with their own affairs,

banks and the morchanls powcrles
to holp the producer as before, it has

himself; to ask equitablo pricoH for
the products of his labor, and fair

All tho tobacco growers in
and other Btatea havo combined
to ko nftor tho American Tobacco
Company, or so-called trust,
with hainimr nnd tongs, writes tho
Louisville correspondent of tho Cincinnati
For tho rlrst time, they say, they
are a compact body and aro propared
to deal a blow every time tho "octopus"
At Howling Green Thursday nil
the associations ot Kentucky,
Ohio and Tonnossea were
merged, po fnr as tholr fight against
tho American Tobacco Company was
concerned iito one organization.
Matah'iimtlnlly spenklng. the
combined wealth was enough to copo
with tho great New York Interests
which the farmers nay have been
grinding them into the duat ot their
own tobacco fields for 20 years.
Tobacco men from all States were
present In the Warren county capital.
Discussion dealt with the
various problems of tho association
severally, nnd It whs finally decreed
and decided thn' there was not an
Interest of one which twih not an Interest
of nnother ami
that the common end of nil was to
combat the trust From this argument
organization was perfected
with results which will probably furnish
the Industrial world with such a
spectacle as It has nevor seen

One of tho most prominent of the
tobacco men was In Loulsrlllo after
the meotlng and the opinion was
' "The association of the vnrlous so-
he said, "gives sinew and

greatest pact of farmers in tne

THK A. S. OK K. AND THK MONEY
The necessity of a farmers' organization
becomes more and more
obvious as time advances. The
truth of this Btntement can be substantiated,
perhaps, In no better way
than bv discussing one of the questions
of the day, I e . tho "money
panic" No one knows the cause
of the money stringency nt this time,
and, as was stated In one of our
dallies not long ago: 'Statisticians
will have trnuhle In the future when
they strike the fart, that 1907 was a
year of the greatest prosperity, nnd
of n pnnlc."
I stnted above no one knows the
cause of the panic, but I will modify
thnt statement somewhnt. ns perhaps
the trusts, speculators and the monev
kings do know the cause
After liberal discussions with
bankers and business men of various
ritlos, nnd after noting the many articles
written by very intelligent
writers In tho dally papers and
on this subject, the writer still
has no enlightenment as the cause
or tne panic
Like nhvslelans In n case nt ainir.

of the disease, and then, having

but thnt we market our crops gradually

As I view the situation. It would
be folly to even mnke an nttempt nt

'or "moving tho crops."
Whllo It g truo thnt money, when
