IRONTON. MO. THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1922.
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

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

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,

campaign fund while a candidate for
delegate to the last Republican na
tional convention, was nominated for

The Victory of Reed Constrains One to
Believe That Mules Are Voting in
(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
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.
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

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
P. S. You will be comforted bv the
knowledge that the very expensive
dress goods, for example those cost

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
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.
