A. Call to City Folks Who, for Any
Reason, Arc Not Now Ac tively Employed. VOICE FROM FARMS OF VIRGINIA Wliile England Calls Men of Fifty to Front, City Idle Men of That Ape Should Go to Farmers' Help?No Time Now for Wasters. Liloyd George says Englishmen of the ape of fifty years are not too ol?l to fight. A friend has written The Times Dispatch ho thinks Virginia city men of the ace of fifty or more are not too old to answer the call to the farm. , He has made a rough estimate ami fig ured out that there are something over 1.000 able-bodied men in Richmond considerably beyond the righting JK? who could, if they would. <1<> excellent work on the farms of Virginia this summer and be all tho better whysical ly and otherwise for it. lie refers to men who are now practically doing nothing, who will be making no sacri fice to leave town for the summer and spend the time helping farmers save big crops and thus responding to the appeals of government to make several 1. ishels of corn grow this year where only one grew last year. Every town j!, Virginia has its quota of such men. His letter, in part, is as follows: "Before It is too late, let us get down to brass tacks, to the practical, tho sensible, and stop all this tommy rot about our women doing the farm ing. "Where can you find a woman physically able to plow, and spade and hoe. and sow and reap? In the name or Heaven, where? Besides, there are too many other necessary tilings tak ing up every atom of her time. Her , children, the upkeep of her homo, hor chickens; her fowls, her milk and but ter, her cooking and oftentimes hor washing. Where is the time, let alone a.!iv physical ability, for anything more? Impossiblel ?'And equally out of the question is the taking out of the training camps our soldiers, class 1, for this purpose.! In Justice to them as fighting men. we should at least throw around them the protection of all the training we can ?give them before sending them Into ac tive service. This is a scientific war,' -. and there is much to be learned, never "known of before, and our boys must be built up besides to the strongest phys ical perfection. Is it not settled then that they cannot spare tho time for anything else? "And apart from that, where is the Justice orf expecting class 1 to do It all?fighting and farming, too? Where ;do classes 2. 3 and 4 come in? What is expected and required of them? Are our men in class 1 to sacrifice every '.I'thlng In this 'holy war' of right against might, and nothing be re- ; quired by the nation of these other inca, who, if not fighting at the front. -Should be fighting here at home for the good of the nation, anywhere and Anyway they arc needed. And it should not he left to them when or where or how, but they should be made to understand that they belong to the na tion and Its service in ? ne capacity or another, as much as the men at tli? front, and not alone the young men tvl'hln the age limit, but every able bodied man of any age. England has called them Into active service up to fifty. L>et our men face the situation. "There are thousands doing nothing, or if anything at all some insignificant Job that might easily, for the dura lion of the war. anyhow, be filled by a woman, much better fitted for it than for the heavy farm work. Anil the man would be much better off physically for the outdoor air and ex-' ercise of his muscles, thus developing him Into the real m.m?Instead of Hie physical weaklings we now havu and call men. "The outcome of this war cannot be. what we Intend It to bo without the united whole-souled service of every able-bodied man here at home as much as at the front, and we must under stand if, and without any further de lay. The farm work is waiting, and it i* bo late now it cannot afford to wait longer. I.,et us get down to brass tncks. We need food as much as we need fighting men?and it must be had * . . 1 COAL DEMAND SPEEDS UP j <?reater Production, Eaperlalljr In An thracite Fields, failed I'or?IIoit efff, Too Soon for I'esxlmlnm. According to the New York Coal Age, the fuel demand speeds up somewhat more rapidly than does the supply, es pecially in the. matter of anthracite The Age says: "The national fuel administration 1 making rapid strides in the work of clearing away the uncertainties be setting the coal industry. A zoning policy has been announced; now price -regulations have gone intc. effect: job bers arc practically unhampered in their methods of doing business; local fuel administrations in the different States have been organized to take charge of distribution?In short, the path Is being smoothed for a quick movement of coal from the mine to the consumer's bin. Now the cry is for production?for inorf and yet more coal. The demand for anthracite is in sistent. Ktocks are down to rock bot tom. notwithstanding the fact that record tonnages are being produced at acme mines. Willi the added demand that will surely come from household consumers during the next few months, there arises the question, 'Will Hie output equal the requirements?" It is hard to see how thi-i can be answered in th<? affirmative, though it if a bit too soon to be X"?ssirnistlc " CHEAPER SHOES NOT IN SIGHT fl. G.

The farmers of Piedmont Virginia always rejoice when the "long sea son In May" takes time by the fore look an<l puts In Its appearance In April. They say the best growing weather of the year Immediately fol lows the inevitable "long season" ol horrid weather, and when it comes early it gives that much more of such proll table growing conditions. The "long season" evidently arrived early last week and lasted through to Saturday night, playing havoc wltli the retail trade In Richmond, but the I'.road Street dry goods, millinery, no tion and shoe men are taking comfort in the farmers' theory that the "long season" Is to he followed by bright skies and a long spring shopping sea ton. Business in the lines mentioned was necessarily dull all of last week, bu? '.t gave the merchants good time to arrange their stocks and bargain counters for the inevitable rush that must follow su&h a spell of bad shop ping weather. The jobbers report continued good business, shoes, hats and clothing be ing especially active. Tin; dry 5400.is men sue getting more than Hk usual number of filling in orders, whleh g<>es to show that the country mctchanta have been having a good e:?rly fipring trade, exhausting some of their stocks sooner than usual. Groceries, drugs j and hardware were fairly active. All the merchants report collections good. The cash and carry system lui.s evi dently been well introduced in the rural districts, enabling country mer chants who make bills iti Richmond u> make heavier remittances than usual this season. There is so much improvement in ihe railway situation that very little complaint ?f delayed shipments is now heard. However, the merchants are not banking too freely on ti.is, foi they are of the opinion that the bid work of transporting new troops to the various cantonments that must now soon be commenced will cause rreight hang-ups here, there am.*, everywhere, unil, in anticipation of ?.his, they are buying goods and hav ing them shipped ahead of actual needs. OUR TRADE WITH FRANCE America's tirowlng Jlu*lnrK* With Allies?It Hhn t'oiue to Stny. Kven After Wstr. The following Interesting article on America's trade relations with France, l'rom the pen of the manager of K. G. Dun & Co. at l'aris. appears in the last issue of Iuin's Review: "Although Olliiial statistics are not yet available concerning the trade be- 1 tween France sind the I'nited Slates I for the calendar year J HIT, it is al- | ready evident that the commerce be tween the two countries is expanding in many ways, apart from the heavy transient trade in war supplies. It is a most wonderful evidence of French energy and determination to note thsit in most linej of manufactured goods the nation is still able to maintain its export trade?the principal declines being in such lines as Jewelry and ar ticles of luxury. The French ports have all been very busy during the past year, particularly I'.ordeaux. St. Nazaire, Nantes and Havre. This has been rspoelally the csise since the I'nited States entered the wsir. Without considering the goods destined for the armies, or for the French government, many thou sands of tons of American manufac tures of many kinds have been s> nt to this country. Very shortly the tlrst American grain 1 levator will be 1:1 operation in a French port, and al ready a itti ..her of powerful American locomotives can bu seen on the state railways. American automobiles of many standard makes can be seen by ihe hundreds in all of the large French cities, while the number of American trucks and agricultural machines? which were practically unknown here a f- w years sigo?Is increasing throughout the country, "There is a growing disposition her* to strengthen the commercial relation* between Franco and the I'nited States, and if American manufacturers and exporters endeavor to learn the busi ness methods that prevail here and to understand better the point of view of the French business man they will find the French market after the v. will bo very largo indeed for their products In a vast number of lines. The commercial interchange thsit will then take placc cannot fail to lie to the !>'-nefit of the trsulers of both countries alike." CARY STREET BUSINESS Tiie produce dealers and cc.nimission merchants <! .\vn on <\iry and Thir teenth Streets arc still finding some imu.'-b to corn plain of tin* confusion and uncertainties of the wartime fit nation, so far as their Immediate business is concerned. .\11 of these men are pa triotic and law -abiding, as well as obedient lo special orders, hiwcver tip .ettlng tin* 'alter may In*. l?ut they uri. buman, and, bavin?; an inalienable right lo 1:1 i. fall t" themselves i, it is but natural that some of them should do a little unlet com plaining of the ir.iHierori ti"' of govorniiient.'i 1 re strictions and (In- frequency "f the Issuance of special orders ci nee1 nlng prictt regulation and all the like o t that. These things and some other draw backs, principally the weather, liavo kept Cary Street business In some of Its lines rather unsettled for the past week. The supply of onions ami pota toes is somewhat in excels of demand, that is, at tlie prices that have been prevailing, and the figures have tum bled down to a rather low mark, as compared with r.otne recent quotations. Kverything else In tie vegetable and green line* Is high, and many articles, because of the fearful w?ather and bad Shipping arrangements, were scarce and hard to get all of last week. l-'r'Jits were very active, and some - < ranges, for i' stan <? hard t.< get.

I Many Homes To <?o l'p. I The permits Issued for new buildings in 149 citirs of tliis country during January and February, according 1? (official figures filed with the proper author! ties, amounted to Jii.OOO.OOO, a decrease of 50 per cent as compared with the name months of last year. This represents a reduction of specu lativo construction of office buildings, hetels, theaters and public building:* of the municipal kind. Such reduction of tuildiug in the large cities, where close records are kept, became neces sary in order to free labor and mate rials for the construction of factories and warehouses for war preparations and munition plants and cantonment3 and all other structures for war pur poses. Most of this war construction is .taking place in small towns or cities, [ or in tiie suburbs of the largo cities, and, therefore, do not figure in the re ports of building commissioners, in spectors, etc., there being no such of Ilcers to grant building permits and keep record of the same from which to make reports. If these were included in the reports that coino to light, and from which the statistics are made, it j would bo seen that the total sum of | building throughout the country is 'greater than ever before. Until the war is over, however, there will be a reduction of speculative building in the metropolitan areas, and also upon ill of the railroads. One of the pur poses of discontinuing the fast passen ger trains is to reduco the necessity of making replacement of track equip ment, as fast freight trains can be run on tracks which would hardly be safe for extra-fast passenger trains. IMchmond, like other cities. Is not doing much building beyond the ercc : ion of residences and homes. So sky scrapers are going up, although the plans of the would-be builders of sev eral have not been abandoned, but only postponed until the demands of the government on labor and material are less exacting. None of the railroads i.s even planning for buildings, and are doing no work other than on such as are already under way. The city, of t.curse, is not now in the building humor, and tho Legislature, at the last session, quietly pigeon-holed the Gov ernor's suggestion that the ?>tate buy certain property and build needed of fices thereon. The absence of workers on buildings and Improvements ?>f the kind mentioned make it look rather dull i:i the building line In this city. However, considerable home build ing is going on, and more of it would be in progress but for the scarcity of labor. The high cost of material has held back many home builders who have the lots upon which to erect residences, lroin the small c< ttage to he pretentious dwelling, but thought it wis-s to postpone the work until ? rices for building material should I ;ako a slump. That slump has not] i ?ome. and there seems to l>.? lit"! prospect of its coming, ard so tin- ; home builders, who have been quite prosperous in the meantime, have about ?oncluded that it i.s not wise to wait :iny longer. They, or at least a largo number of them, arc planning to build his spring and sinniisT, and quite a number of them already have let the I ontracts to builders. The demand for apartment houses j | lias not yet bent satisfied in lli hmond. it is said that tliero nre no vacant | rooms in any of those now here, ami I the attractions of apartment-house lit** 1 ire making greater and greater Im pressions every d ?y upon the people who are classed as renters. For this reason several people who had plan ned to erect apartment houses as a speculative proposition and abandoned the idea temporarily because of the eareity and high cost of labor and t he high cost of building material, have changed their minds, and the in dications are that several apartment houses not yet contracted for will go 11? In tlie city and out in the suburbs this summer. i l:uilding operations have not stop | ped altogether in and about itichrnond, and a t the spring gets well ope.i and I I the summer begins to draw nifih tiicre j will not be heard in theso parts any j more ef the talk about a cessation of I building operations, except as to sky I nernpcrs. hotels, theaters and municipal buildings.

Last week tho State Corporation Commission granted a charter of in corporation to the Pocahontas Cotton Mills, of IMchrnoitu and Petersburg-. Tho capita! stock, which is said to have been subscribed before Gie company took out papers of incorporation, is placed at 5200,000. F. U Robbins, of Petersburg, Is the president of the new company, and Josiah Canter, of New York, is tho secretary, as stated in the j application for the charter. It Is learned that it is tho purpose of this company to establish at least two mills, one for tho manufacture of cotton yarn and one for the manufac ture of cotton cloth. One of the mills, J the first to bo started, will be !n Pe tersburg and the other In South Rich- | liiond, according to reports. Many years ago there were several j cotton factories in Petersburg and two 1 or three in Manchester, now South ! Richmond, and they were mcncy j makers In their day and time. They < drew their supplies of raw material i from (he cotton fields of the southern' [part of Virginia and North Carolina, land In those days much more cotton | was grown in Virginia than now. There is no- reason why cotton manu facturing should not l>e as profitable In Kichmond as !n f'anville or any where else in the South. Two or throe cotton mills on the south side of the James would add immensely to the distribution of the circulating medium ?hrough increased pay rolls, and Kioh- ; inond will cordially welcome them. j BETTER IRON OUTLOOK Optimistic Trade Journal Srrn lin- j |iro>ed Condition in Xcnr Future. The Iron Trade Review, of Cleveland. Ohio, is optiinistltn in its last Issue.! and its optimism is well calculated to eliecr the Iron workers of Richmond and all of this part of the country. It ??.ays: "With the opening of lake navigation in sight, plans have been crystallised to smooth the way for a maximum ore movement during the present season. Co-ordination of the interrelated interest of ore and coal producers, of vessel owners and r.f tho j railroads. Is to be effected through ; committees and a superior admlnistra- j live body representing all." Tho Review alio speaks in a pa triotic lono when It says: "Grimmer determination to fill every demand upon it Is the answer of the ircu and steel Industry to the supremo German onslaught on the battle field of France. A tightening of effort an<f more effective co-ordination in speed ing up production is apparent. The government continues to display a more vigorous attitude in following tip de liveries of stool and in eliminating de lays in the supplying of material which may obstruct essential lines of manu facture."
