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 "

Review of Week's
Trade in Richmond
"Long Season in May" Dampens
April Rclail Business?Bright
er Skies Arc Ahead.
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. All
fruits are going at stiff prices. None
of -h?? ('1,11111.'. '' i"ii men had any trouble
selling out each day la:>t week, but not
always at satisfactory prices for .soma

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.

RICHMOND MAY SOON HAVE
COTTON MILL OPERATING
t'ocahontax Cotton .Mill* Incorporated,
to Start .11111* in Thin City
unil In I'rlrrxburc.
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."
Itnllwny Situation Mnrh Tmprovnl,
Richmond merchants ami shipper:
ijancrally can but observe tmarked
inpr ivt'.'ncni within t!ie past two wti'b
.!i the railway situation. True, freight
?rains are yd delayed some and a:>
fur frotn running on the before the
war schedules, but there has been cre.it
hange for the better. The most mark
ed improvement la in the pusseiiRer
trains. Six weeks a so a pas<-ng>t
?rain ?>omi!iRr Into K!chmoml on t.mt
vas the exception to the rule and n
:;.re exception at that. Kor the past
two weeks, and especially the past
week, the delayed passenger train is
he exception.
