? RICHMOND IS IKING
largely Oversubscribed Her Appor tionment "When Two Other lib erty Ixmns Were Floated. STATE WILL KEEP HER RECORD Patriotic Sentiment Tliat Inspired John Stunrt Mill a Half a Century Ago Is More Pronounced To-Day Than Ever Then. Because Richmond took m?'? bonds of the first Liberty loan than were apportioned to her, many people thought she would -as largely under subscrlbe when the second Joan was launched. But Richmond did nothing of the kind. Her apportionment was 514,141, SCO. and she took in $19,T00, 100, something over five and a half million dollars more than Undo Sam asked her to buy, the exact over age being 55,55$.300. The whole State of Virginia was asked to subscribe to J45.0JO.OOO worth of bonds of the second loan. She took 550.S50.500, exactly 55.S50.000 more than she was asked to take. Thus it will be seen that Richmond came within a little less than 530.1.000 of taking all of Virginia's oversubscrip tion. Other cities, all of them except two, oversubscribed also, and if the counties had done as well as tho cities for the second loan Old Virginia would have very nearly doubled the invest ments the government asked her to make. Of the third Liberty loan. Richmond will bo asked to take not over $10, 000,000, perhaps considerably less, and all the signs of tho times Indicate that she will again go largely beyond the mark that shall bo set for her. That is Richmond's way. If all the other cities In the State shall do likewise and the counties shall improve on tho record they made wvhen the other loans were floaieu, Virginia will stand higher on the honor roll after this loan has been floated than i she did before. An enthusiastic worker in the loan drive that is now on predicts that Richmond and all Virginia will large ly oversubscribe tho third apportion ment. whatever It may be, and ho says they will do it because they be lieve as John Stuart Mill believed a half a century and more ago when he wrote as follows: "War, in a good cause, is not the greatest evil which a nation can suf fer. War Is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war Is worse. When a people nre used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service for the selfish purpose of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical Injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war. carried on tor an honest pur pose by their free choice, is often the I means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety, Is a miserable crea ture, who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by tho ex ertions of better men than himself. As long as Justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing light for ascendancy in tho affairs of mankind, human beings must be will ing. when nded Is, to do battle for the one against the other.-' It Is true that the above was written more than fifty years ago, but it sounds very much as if It might have been written this year and by some one of such patriots as tho^o who aro pushing the third Liberty Ioxt drive in Richmond and throughout Virginia, RAILWAY MEN WILL BUY TVay Made Knsy for Employers of IlondH Centering In Hlcliraond to llri'uiur Iloiidholdcrs. It is believed that thousands of dol lars' worth of Liberty loan bonds of the third issue will be taken by rail way employees in this city. Director liencral McAdoo has Issued a circular to encourage the sale of bonds to such employees, and it is understood that the roads centering in Richmond will, I by taking advantage of this order, do | their part toward making it easy for their employees to invest in tho bonds'! The circular is number 15. and reads as follows: "In order to encourage officers and employees to subscribe to the third Liberty loan carrier* :nay take such amount of the bonds as may bo ncces- j sary to care for such subscriptions, ?nd current operating revenues may be used as far as necessary lu paying for Mich bonds. OMlcers and employees may be permitted to pay in install ments covering a period of not exceed ing ten months. J;i case they have not completed payments on prior subscrip tions, arid in order to avoid making payments on both subscriptions at the same time, payments on new sub scriptions may begin not later than three months from now. in wh.<-h event the ten months shall date from the! time payments shall begin on the new subscription. "The regional directors have been re quested to organize regional commit-] tees to promote tli> . <? ? ubscrlptlons. In . addition It Is hoped that the various j carriers w .11 ?

The few warm days that < an.- along with the movlr.g up of the clocks, and stayed so short a while, made the trade In clectric fans pretty rood in Kich mond. Morris Hunter, an extensive dealer in all kinds of electrical goods, reports quite a rush of business of this kind tor several dajs last week, and he looks ? for a considerable Increase yet, as tht days got longer and hotter. Review of Weed's Trade in Richmond All Wholesalers Busy, Some Rushed ? Collections Good, Though Money Is Tighter II. (I. Dun & Co.*8 special report to Tlio Times-Dispatch sums up last week's trado conditions in Richmond as follows: There fs a fsLvong demand for money at tho prevailing: rate of 0 per cent, banks aro heavy borrowers and the thirJ L'Usrty Iran will make money tighter. v.Vholesdle dry poods houses r?poit business much larger than a', this tlm* last year, prices advancing and collec tions very fair. Notion sales aro con siderably heavier. Merchants are buy ing raoro freely and paying promptly. The salo of shoe* is far ahead of this season last year, the demand continues and prospects nrc good. Hardware tonnage is about tho same as last spring, but prices are high and the amount Involved consequently larger. Leather is as active as last season, and a satisfactory volume of business is being transacted, although it is con ceded sales would be much larger If better deliveries could bo guaranteed. Prices aro lower, jobbers doing busi ness on a smaller margin of profit. Grocery houses are very busy, and find ready sale for all tho goods they arc able to get. Prices aro rm and fur ther rises looked for. Both city and county collections good, at sales are unproeedentedly large; there is great difficulty in getting raw material, and only domestic fur is obtainable. Mer chants aro buying any lino they can get, and prices aro unusually high. Drug sales continue to increase, and are larger than last year; prices aro firm. Implement sales show no en tailment, although prices aro very high. Produce is not up to normal, trade showing the efTcct of the rulings as to the salo of poultry, and is also effected by the much lower prices of potatoes and onions. Seed dealers re port sales somewhat off during the past week, as shipments aro irregular. Prices reflect the condition by weaken ing somewhat. Lumber is quiet, only tho govern ment being" a buyer in any quantity; prices arc unchanged and deliveries ire practically lmposalblo for any but government orders. Owing to tho open weather, planting s further advanced than is usual at his time. From the present indica tions there will be a considerable in crease in tho acreage of corn, tobacco ind cotton, while tho acreage in ear 1 y potatoes will be very materially re luced. A WAIL FROM NEW KENT Rich-Priced Labor and Lovr-I*rleed Po tntoo* Urine Trouble?Govern ment AnUed to Ilcg-ulnte. There comes a cry from New Kent County. Some of the farmers down t >at way who sell all of their produce on the P.iehrnorid market seem to be in hard lines. Charles E. Palmatier, a truck, r and general farmer, living in that county sixteen miles from Rich mond. was In tiie city the other dav, and. speaking for himself and neigh to a Times-Dispatch man: ?e New Kent farmers have been try ing to answer the call to duty by making bigger crops than ever before. We d:d make good crops of potatoes and truck, such as salad, etc., and to do so we had to pay higher prices for 1 labor than ever before. Because of the scarcity and high price of labor we cannot raise potatoes for less than 51 per bushel, and this week I could not get over 60 cents per bushel for them on Cary Street. It was at sim ilar sacrifice figures I had to sell salads and other truck. At such ruinous figures we will Just have to quit farnv how " K0nt thlS y?ar?1 wil1, any" "If the government demands of us to stay on the farm and make bigger crops it should come to our relie' '???? nf4-fv.let 113 d? hl,sinr?s nt such a ,7hc government has fi*o,i prices on wheat and corn and somn other products as well as upon manv ar whnil ?'1comm"?e.

Mr. Palmatier also expressed the \ r??h ^-lot gardening much hUrl lh? very INDUSTRY DISTURBED Too Mnnr llenrlnes n* to Prior rblne 1 Keep Sforl Men In the Air.

SUMMER SEASON TIDE; NO DULL TIME THIS YEJIR Better Wages and Conditions "Will Enablo Richmond Merchants to Cut. Out Midsummer Lull. BRIGHT PROSPECTS LOOMING UP Wage-Earners' Trade Will Bo Groat. Ranks of Soldier Buyers Promise to Bo Fail All tho Senson Round. Dealers Prepare for Trade. "There will bo no dull summer sea son In Richmond this year." Such was the emphatic statement of a well known business man who has had his studying cap on for several weeks. Richmond always has what the mer chants call a dull summer season. Sometimes it Is of short duration and sometimes It extends quito a space Into the. fall. Much of the population leaves town when the long hot days come and spends much tlmo in the moun tains. at tho seashore, in tho country or anywhero to escapo the rays of tho sun as reflected from paved 3treets nnd brick walls. This naturally results In curtailing trado In the retal lstores, and the merchants have their dull time. "War-times change many customs and work Innovations in more ways than one. It Is the opinion of the wiso man quoted abovo and of several other business men who have been inter viewed that the summer season, now not far away, will not bring about tho usual falling off in business for several reasons. In the first place, fewer people will leave town this year than usual and more than the usual [tumber will he on hand all summer lo patronlzo the grocery stores at least. A. majority of those who do go away will not travel as far as usual, but ivlll take short summer outings near some?near enough to do their trading n tho city by running in once or twico x week, perhaps. In tho second placo, tho wage ;arners of all kinds, sizes and sexes vill bo larger customers of tho retail stores this summer than they ever were n any previous year, because there are nore of them at work and they are lrawing bettor pay than ever before, n-.e increased buying and trading that his class will Indulge In will more ;han make up for what the stores will ose by the absence of the vacationers. Furthermore, the trado of the many loldiers passing through Richmond ind coming here from the camps and cantonments near-by will be very arge this summor. In addition to all 'f this thoro can be no doubt that ho country trade, a vast amount of vhicli ft I ways comes to Richmond, wPl le larger this summer than usual, oc rauso the gi ewers of the crops In he counties immediately around Rlch nond have more money to spend now han they have had in many years. The man quoted In the opening of his story Is evidently not the only ?erson who looks forward to r busy ummer with tho merchants of Rleh nond. The merchants themselves are centing good business on ahead and ire so sure of it that they are making ill of the necessary preparations for t They are not allowing their stocks o run down, but are keeping their juyers on the lookout all the time and loing it a good way ahead, because hey have seen and heard quite enougii >f freight congestions and tho diffi culties of shipping goods on anything like hurry orders. They are getting ?eady for an unusually good summer :rade. Flectrle Truck Labor S?Tfr?. In the plant of a large manufacturer nf gasoline automobiles (not In Rich mond, of course), where eighteen men were formerly needed to unload storage batteries from freight cars, eight men now perform the same work with one industrial electric truck, and do it faster. This is only one instance of labor saving in this plant by the use of small electric trucks, for the company employs fifty of tlicni about its works which cover over 100 acres of floor space.

With the coming of the spring months, the coal shortago loses mucli of Its terror to Itlchmond people, but, so the coal dealers and tho govern ment officials advise, tho vigil over the coal pile should not bo relaxed, and every cconomy should bo continued througrh tho summer to prevent a re currence of tho past season's famine. It is estimated by the expert statis ticians that the shortage of coal for every day of tho ensuing year amounts to two and one-half pounds for overy man, woman and child In the United States. Possibilities of economies by factories and railroads aro receiving tho most exacting studies, but more attention is needed for the small sav ings which can be made in each home. These savings can be made to set free thousands of tons of coal for essential industries, and for tho navy and the many ships needed to carry men and supplies to Franco. Heating is not tho only home use of coal. Most gas and electricity come from coal, and decreased consumption of either means a proi/ortlonate saving In coal. Only the most economical light bulbs should be used, and thoso should be of as low candle power or ' wattage as Is permissible. All gas fixtures should bo In tho best condi l tlon, and Welsbach mantles substi tuted for the open-flame burners. The flat-flame burner uses more than twice as much gas as a mantle burner, and gives much less light. Evory mantle burner substituted for a flat-flame burner saves coal every day. These substitutions In light may in many cases provide better Illumination with a smaller consumption of gas or electricity. A.l lights should be turned oft when not absoljtely needed. Savings In gas and coal can bo made in tho kitchen by arranging the cook ing so that the stoves are heated for the shortost possible time each day. and by a more general use of flreless cookers. Coal is a military essential, and every ounce saved will help. CHANGES IN A LIFETIME Livery Sfnhlea Panning Away?They Are (iarsciM \<?v, nnd Hleh rnond Hn.n Thtm (?ulorr* Not very fHr from Tho Times-Dis patch Building one may read a dlnrv u ??.Iovcr lhc broad door of a long buHding somewhat after this manner: Smiths Livery Stable." For a quar ter of a century past, possibly longer, that sign has been there, but to-dav tho doors are closed, and, upon draw ing nearer, one may read Just beneath tho sl^n mentioned another one which furnishes the Information that the building Is for rent. Look again. The adjoining building, freshly painted. Its glass' doors clean and shining, bears an attractive siir-n which reads: "Smith Oarage." and on the inside thero is husllo and business All of this simply means that "Smith * is an up-to-date man, and that he is still In the "livery business." but on a very different order. Thus ono Is reminded that In the old days no city on the map boasted of better livery stables and finer horses, carriages buggies, etc. Hut there aro very few livery stables here now; they are garages Times change, and people have to change with them whether they like it or not.
