Chilean Produet Price
Bernard M. Baruch testified yester?
day before the Congressional sub
committee investigating war expendi
tures that the $S4.00Q,000 nitratc
plant ac Musc'e Shoals, Ala., saved tho
government $300,000,000, although it
had not yet produccd a paund of ni
trate. The economy was effected, hc
said, by the reduction in the price of
Chilean nitratea which followed the
announcc-ment that the United States
was proparing to produce its own.
Mr. Baruch was in charge of the ni
trate seetion of the War Industries
Board. during the war. Six months
more of war, he said, would have j
proved the Muscle Shoals nitrate plant
indispenaable, as by that time produc
tion would have been under way. He
said that he expected to ?cc the nitrate
erected here turn out about
- . i tons annually.
E. L. Reggonet, a French mechnnical
mgineer, who installed some of the
machinery at Muscle Shoals, teatified
that before nitrates for agricurtural
Turposes could he manufactured there j
it would be necessary to divide the
plant into smaller manufacturing units

It was brought out that the Ameri- j
?an Cyanamid Company, which, under

royalties on the Muscle Shoals produet

nearly $12,000 for newspaper publici y
;oncerning the plant. E. A. Morei ,
ger of the Preas Service Company,
?d that his concern was sending

After a moment's thought Mr. Sei

I Mr. Seibold concluded a revelatory

The purpose of the Amen Corner was
explained by Mr. Smith, who addressed
the guests, saying:
''Since our hrst dinner many reform
: sodahties have come and gons. But
: the Amen Corner still survives as a
, promoter of poiitical piety. It has
; stood the test of timo because it has
, been true to its princinles and oppoaed
; to hypocrisy and sham.
"As modern psycholoeists. we believe
, in the eflicacy of self-analvsis. We
know that few . public men appiy
it, excrpt when recoverrng from a de

of our favorite sons, who may see
themselves as others see them/ with

of civic betterment."
; All the songs that were sung at the

popular than "Goodbv, Boose " Its

WASHINGTON, Jan 10.?The Demo?
cratic National Committee is plan
ning to spend between $1,000,000
and $2,000,000 for the raising of a
campaign fund. Enthusiasts for the
new system believe the total amount
which will be raised?all to be spent
in the attempt to elect a Democratic
President and Congress?will exceed
$20,000,000. The number of clerks
alone engaged aolely on the work of
s?etung in the money is expected to be
between 7,000 and 8.000. This all was
admitted by one of the Ieading mem?
bers of the committee to-day.
Already the division of' flnance
under W. D. Jamieson, a former mem
oer of the House from lowa, occupies
tho second, third and fourth floors of
the Bond Building. in this city. One
hundred and seventy-five electric type
writers have been installed at a cost
of $120,000. About 250 persons aro at
work in this division, and the salary
roll is said to be $500,000 a year.
A card index system which will m
cludo the name of every Democrat in
the Lnited States. is being compiled.
The p-inted cards have blanks, in addi
Uon to the spa-cos for name and resi
..ence, for estimates as to how much
money each Democrat has, his income,
his occupation and a guoss by persons
in his community of how much he
should give to the Democratic cam?
paign fund.
Foilows Libertv Loan System
This system is copied from the Lib
erty Loan orjranization, and is operat
ing much on the same plan. Mr.
Jamieson has obtained an imposing list
oi' namea reaching into every county
in every state in Fhe Union, and thou
sandr> of letters are going out, signed
by him, calling for futids and informa?
tion ar> to other Democrats who might
ccntribute. Mr. Jamieson al3o has a
series of fo!low-un letteva which he
began sending several months ago. The
irst letter is aecomnanied by the
oledge blank, concluding with these
words: "I am sending you $-in
cloaed with this blank, and I will send
you $-each month from now until
the national convention next sprinfr,
$2 of which is for a subscription for
one year to finance bulletin 'Demo?

The first letter is accompanied by a
blank with ?paces for twenty-six names
of other Democrats who might con

organization," Mr. Jamieson says, at
the top ot' ''.his blank, "the Democratic
National Committee is appealing to

women who might help us finance tho

you can.
"The other information requested
will be invaluable, and it is important
that we have it. May I itemize a few

In view of this apparently tremen
dous campaign for small contributions
Chairman Cumm.ings, of the Demo?
cratic National Committee, was asked
if he had any idea of imitating tho
Republican limitation on campai"n
contributions to Sl 000.
Mr. Cummings said he had "no such
hypocritical intention3." Liberal Re?
publicans, he said, could give $1,000
to the national committee and then as
much more as they pleased to state
and other organizations working for
Republican success, so that there is
really no limitation on the amount they
can give.

The Republican State Committee
at its meeting yesterday at the

19 and 20 and Carnegie Hall as the
time and place for the state convention
at which the delegates-at-large and
the akernates-nt-large for the Chicago
convention will be named.
All of the Assembly districts were

who, on account of long service, have
become familiar hgures~ were on hand
yesterday. Among others were William
L. Ward, of Westchester; Fred

A letter was read from Chairman
Will H. Hays of the national commit?

the Presidential campaign, and it was
announced that Ex-Senator William J.
Tully would elucidate the plnn to the
county chairmen, which he did in ex?

Mrs. Livermore in a brief address
told the state committee that its mo.-t
i'ruitful field of,service was in helping
to organize the half-million politically

"The women are party-shy," she said.
"They are in the same at'titude as
the horses used to be whon we would
?.ro to the pasturo and try to get the
halter around their necks b'y taking,
with us an empty irrain measure as a

women in this state are looking into
the grain box you ar hi I lin ul
see if there is any grain in it. The
net gain in the Republican woman
vote in the last elections was 100,0U0,
and it was not enough.
"We want it distinctly understood
that the women do not wish to dis
place the men. The best plan i is for
double representation. Thirty coun
tir-s hav.e changed their organization
rules so as to provide for the double
representation in their county organi?
zation, and the sooner the remainder
fall into line the better. Chairman
Hays of the national committee has
assured us that we are to cnme into
the party as full-fledged working mem?
At the me?tini_' for county chairmen
