OUR GOD, OUR COUNTRY AND TRUTH. VOLUME LVI. TERMS 91.50 a-Yer in Advance. Selling Federal Jobs it d. J?! HistoricaI Society f r ci ... 0 . ' vi. w. r. committeeman. IRONTON. MO. THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1922. NUMBER 12 Charges that Joseph W. Tolbert, Republican National Committeeman for South .Carolina and chairman of the Republican State Committee there has peddled Federal patronage for nis own protit have been laid before a subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary uommittee by Senator Nathaniel B. Dial (Dem. S. 0.) An affidavit made - by one of Tolbert's former followers alleges that the Republican National Committeeman, who was also "ref eree" in the distribution of Federal jobs there, expressed the hope that b.6 would realize $100,000 in this traf ficking. loibert has been appointed bv President Harding to be United States marshal for the Western District of South Qarolina, and Senator Dial is opposing his confirmation by the Senate. It was in this connection that Senator Dial filed the allegations or loioert's wrong doing with the Senate subcommittee. In presenting the case to the Senate tor investigation, Senator Dial said iiT .,... i ui iniormea mat the referee in our State (Tolbert) sold patronage and that the universal charge was one-half of the first year's salary, and it is now claimed and generally be lieved that this practice is in vogue J he proof presented to me is unaues tionableon the subject and convincing beyond the peradventure of a doubt." It Is alleged that the sums collected from applicants for Federal positions rangea from 600 td 2,000. One of ' Tolbert's "referees" was recently re jected by the Senate because he sought to compel a woman postmaster to pay him $300 to bring about herconfirma tion, Senator Dial said. More than a year ago Senator Mc Kellar (Dem., Tenn.), pressed for an inquiry into charges that John W. Overall, Republican National Commit teeman for Tennessee, Lad received 810 from an applicant for appointment as postmaster, and that friends of Overall were soliciting from other would-be appointees contributions to pay his expenses on a trip to Wash ington. The Republican Senate has tailed to take any action on Senator McKellar's resolution for an inquiry. These instances of alleged Repub lican huckstering in Federal patron age remind the people of the unfit ap pointments which have already been made or sought to be made by the Republican administration Ambassa dor Harvey, Attorney General Daugh erty, E. Mont Reiley, Governor of Porto Rico, and four of Senator New berry's henchmen who were indicted in connection with his primary cam paign in Michigan. Nat Goldstein, who took 2.500 of Governor Lowden's campaign fund while a candidate for delegate to the last Republican na tional convention, was nominated for St. Louis' Internal Revenue Collector, but was forced to withdraw, although praised by President Harding and Senator Spencer (Rep., Mo.), who led the fight in the Senate to seat Newberry. The Victory of Reed Constrains One to Believe That Mules Are Voting in Missouri. (Birmingham, Alabama, News.) Far be it from the Birmingham News, an independent Democratic newspaper and a believer in State rights, to say that the electorate of a commonwealth should not have ab solute power to elect its own Repre sentatives and Senators. The News believes also in the primary system with all its heart, although it realizes that, until perfected, it must inherit many of the imperfections of the old order. Nevertheless, the Democratic pri mary in Missouri, resulting in tne selection of Jim Reed to serve an other six years in the United. States Senate, brings this newspaper almost to thepoint of doubting the wisdom of some Institutions of democracy. It comes perilonsly near taxing the faith of this newspaper in equal suffrage. It comes blamed nigh bringing the News to the point of wondering if political evolution isn't walking backward. Jim Reed has brains. He has cer tain oratorical powers. ' He knows the political game. But he is a demagogue. And he Is a vulgarian. And he is no sort of Democrat. Heaps of folks were talking about this new, sane element in politics the women.' But the women of Mis souri scarcely have acquired any sort of political consciousness, else they would not have voted to return to Congress a man who believes woman is only fit to bear babies and keep the lnuse in order. "Back to the kitch en!" was Jim Read's advice to the women when they began to appeal for equal suffrage with men. ed is men should have heln to reelect a sort nf of nnlitinal misogynist is not the only strange tning anout this mnewumD's victorv The Democrats of Missouri refused to send Reed to the last Democratic Na tional Convention. That hnmiliating fact presumably would have put Reed onine defensive in this campaign But did it? Not so you could tell it He Was vnlffarlv nffnnaiva afi-nirrht O tj v..

Attention, ladies. The Republican congress has voted . a duty of from 74 1-2 per cent to 115 per cent on all woolen fabrics for dress goods. This tariff on woolen cloth valued at 80 cents a pound before its importation into this country will increase its cost to $1.60 a pound on its arrival on the American shore. In the case of a piece of dress goods valued (before importation) at 81 cents a pound the itepubiican tariff will raise the cost to $1.7i a pouud. Such dress goods are now tiavin? nder the Democratic Underwood law, duty of only 35 per cent ad valorem. That is to say the dress goods valued at 80 cents a pound-now cost, with the duty added, ft 1.08 a pound and 81-cent goods a trifle more. You are indebted to Senator David Walsh (Dem., Mass.,) for these facts. , P. S. You will be comforted bv the knowledge that the very expensive dress goods, for example those cost ing' ft2 a pound, will have to bear a luty of only 74 1-2 per cent under the Republican law. You may need the dress goods, but the Woolen Trust needs the money. Peach Shipments are Large. (Howell County Gazette.) Several weeks ago when experts for the Frisco Railroad were counting peach trees and estimating the amount of the crop in the Koshko-nong-Brandsille district, it was given out that the peach crop would reach 200 cars. This has been found tn hn entirely too small and the crop will be nearly 300 cars.. The trees are bearing a great deal more fruit than anyone ever dreamed they could have ana me truic is nne, Not as laree as in former years, but solid and of fine color. Assistant Superintendent C. T. Ma son, of the Frisco Railroad, is at Koshkonong -this week in personal charge of the peach shipments. Mr Mason has orders to move the fruit at any cost, and in spite of the big rail road strike is rushing the peaches to market. Tuesdav nieht a snecial train of 29 cars left the district for eastern markets. Every train is haul ing peaches, even the regular passen ger trains are hauling from three to six cars of fruit from Koshkonong, Brandsville and Chapin. Chapin has become an important shipping point, numerous new orch ards in that vicinity just coming into bearing. It is believed that Chapin will ship 50 cars during the season. Koshkonong and Brandsville are both sustaining their former reputation as important shipping points. While pickers and packers from all the surrounding country are on the lob in the orchards and packing sheds large number of expert packers from the peach fields of Georgia are helping pack the South Missouri peaches. These experts came in a special car last week and lost no time in getting down to work. As the railroad strike is getting more serious every day, the peach shippers are making stronger efforts to harvest the crop. It is believed the crop will be cleaned up at Kosh konong and Brandsville this week. Night forces are being used in the packing sheds in order to get the fruit in the cars and pickers work in the orchards until they can no longer find the fruit on the trees in the dark ness.-"'"' "'..":. ' .. :',;." V, This year's peach crop is the most wonderful in recent years and under ordinary conditions would make a small fortune for each grower. The railroad strike has cut into the busi ness, for growers are forced to ship at their own risk. From Goodland. Grandma Brooks is visiting her children at Brule and at Flat River. Matt.
