A Special Message for All Farmers
Who Have Signed or Have
Not Signed.
(Editorial by Dr. Clarence Poe, in
, Progressive Farmer.)
To livery Progressive Farmer Itead
or in North Carolina, South Caro
lina and Virginia
Dear Friends: 1 am just back from
the hearing ut Nashville. N. C., where
the ilrst great ouslatight on tho co
operative marketing movement was
mudo by tho interests that will a
heaven and earth to crush lt. This
was tho first suit lu the Carolinas or
Virginia in which the co-operative
marketing association has brought
an injunction to compel a signor to
deliver his crop, to pay a penalty of
ft\ ; cents a pound for each pound ho
had sold outside tho association, and
to pay ibo expenses of tho association
in prosecuting him, all of which
things are called for by tho contract.
And in splto of all that attorneys,
warehousemen and deniers, lighting
CO-oporntlvo marketing could . do,
farmers backed the contract.
Whether you have signed or have
not .signed the co-operative market
ing contract. Mr. Farmer I wish you
could have stood with mo and with
tho others in Hie multitude that
thronged the court house of Nash
county. If you have signed tho co
op?r?t ive marketing contract you
would have had your faith strength
ened, ff you have not signed. 1 be
lieve you would htive had it borne
Into your very soul thai the co-oper
ating fanners have enlisted in a
great battle for freedom, and that lt
ls your duty and tho duty of every
otner farmer to ?et into this groat
battle and llglll shoulder lo shoulder
with your comrades until the victory
comen- or until yon die mid pass the
fight on to your children and chil
dren's children.
.'For freedom's battle once bemm.
Bequeathed from bleeding sire to
Though hauled oft, ls ever won."
1 say all this because there in
Nashville, as never before, was re
vealed with brazen ^shamelessness
the %*ue inwardness of all the bitter
and determined fight that special in
terests have ?nado and will continue
to make against the effort of tho far
mer to free himself from such special
interests, and instead to ".Make him
self master of his own industry."
Wherever opponents of co-opera
tive marketing have found a farmer
they thought they might fool those
last two years, what havo they told
him? Haven't they told him that co
operative marketing was ii weak and
flttllo thing that could never amount
to much'.' Haven't they told him that
co-operative marketing offered no
special benefits nor special advant
ages to the farmer, and that ho might
as well let lt alone.?
Hut nt Nashville last Thursday,
thank God, tho opponents of co-oper
ative marketing threw off theil
sheep's clothing. They unmasked
themselves. Here they were not try
ing to fool SOtUQ poor' uneducated
man with spurious falsehoods--not
nt nil. On the contrary, they were
going before a distinguished judge
who could 'not bo misled by inert
silliness and absurdity. Consequent
ly, facing Judge Daniels in Nashville
court, the opponents of co-operative
? marketing gave utterance at last t<
their real fears-tho terrible * fears
tba', have oppressed nnd haunted
thom ever since tho fanners ol
America began to show signs ol
wanting something to say about tin
sale of products made ii; the swcnl
of the fanner's own face.
Speaking under Ibo solemn ans
pices of a great court trial, intender
to break up co-opcrnlivc marketing
what did these distinguished attor
neys say Did they say tl.nl o-opora
live marketing is a futile thing, :
thing (hal can never amount If
much, no mai ter how many farmer!
go into it? Did they say that co-op
craiivo marketing promised the far
mer no special bonollls, no Bpccla
Not within a lb o II sa nd miles o
Bitch a thing!
These distinguished attorneys, li
their solemn ?illidavits. appealed ti
tho courts to break up co-opornliv<
marketing for two great reasons, am
two groat reasons only
First, they said that co-operativ
. marketing will give tho fanner sue!

products, special privileges nud Spe
cial advantages for getting the upper
hand of other classes, and for this
reason these attorneys declared tho
co-operative marketing law is un
constitutional and must bo swopt off
tlio stntuto books.
These, my friends, wore tho
charges that tho hired opponents of
cooperative marketing repeated over
and over again before the court.
Thank God, tho mas.k is off. Here
after when you hoar some ono saying
that co-operative marketing "won't
amount to anything" and "doesn't
promise anything to the farmer," Just
royinind bini of tho sworn charges
made by the opponents of co-opera
tive marketing . fis they fought for
their lives in Nashville court. Those
mon are lighting co-operative mar
keting boeauso it really adoes prom
ise to become powerful enough to
make tho farmer master of his own
industry. They are lighting to con
trol the Legislatures of North Caro
lina, South Carolina and Virginia
next time so as to repeal the co-op
erative marketing law because they
admit that it really does give tho
farmer greater advantages than ho
has ever before enjoyed in any light,
lo control the products of his own 1
The chief pity and shame of lt ls
that these special interests are using
and will continue to uso ?onie so
called farmers as their dupes, tools
and cat's-paws in this conspiracy to
keep the farmer forever at . their
mercy, lt was a mai' who calls him
self ;i farmer, but who admitted that
he was now in tho employ of a ware
house lighting co-operative market
ing-he was ono of thc two men de
fending themselves against the
charge of having violated their con
tract and their pledge to their bro
Iher farmers. And. as I stood in the
court house at Nashville, a loy; ', '.'ar
mer pointed to another man passing
through the crowd and said, with a
sound of hissing through his teeth*
''There goes a contract-breaker."
And there was a look and a loe th
ing on this loyal fanner's face as if
ho had seen Judas Iscariot passing
by with his thirty pieces ol' silver, or
shame-cursed Benedict Arnold with
his bag of traitor's gold.
This is tho spirit wo have got. t^o
develop among farmers. So long as
a farmer really luis the consent of
his mind and conscience to stay out
of this great fight, it is not for mo to
condemn him or rcbuko him. He
must decide for himself. But once a
man has decided and signed the con
tract, ho should keep the faith as
your ancestors and mine kept the
faith when they followed Washing
ton at Valley Forge or Lee at Gettys
burg, and risked all and dared all
ra'her than hand down to their chil
dren .and children's children the
shame of hoing a traitor to ono's fol
I repeat, that to tho man who has
not signed, I would leave this mat
ter on his mind and conscience-the
question whether you can leave it to.
your brother farmers to fight this1
battle alone.
Whether you realize it or not, It
is tho world-old baltic against privi- |
loge. What I saw in Nashville court
was but another effort on tho part
of greed and privilege to do that
which Isaiah rebuked three thousand
years ago-"To turn aside the needy
from judgment and to take away tho
right from the poor of my people." i
To-day as then, "with the spoil of
tho poor in their houses," the bene
ficiaries of greed "have drawn out
tho word and have bent the bow
to cast down tho poor and peedy."
Tho men who have fattened on the
farmer, tho men who have gn
rich and powerful handling his pro
ducts, are determined :t all ha zs. 'ds
liol to let tho larmer get tor his own
needy wife and children the profits
that have heretofore enriched tho
middlcmon and speculators. Tho
touching of all history, as George H.
Stevenson says In our thought for
the week this Hmo, is that the far
mer can never-In fact, no one can
ever-prosper sis a mero producer of
raw materials. The men who dig
coal live in huts; the men who sell
and handle it live in (ino houses.
The men who cut timber and run
lumber saws live in shacks and cab
ins; the men who manufacture lum
ber and sell it arc well housed. Tho
moil who grow cattle make small pro
fits; tho packers, tho distributors,
nro prosperous. The men who make
peanuts are poor; the cleaners and
distributors are wealthy. The men
who make cotton and tobacco and
sugar cine live humbly; those who
! ny and handle and manufacture
those products live more prosper
And so the farmer ls fighting to
day for ll larger share of the wealth
IhnJ ho croat?.-.*. Ho is fighting to he
something more than a producer of
raw materials. Ho is fighting to get
mid keep for himself tho profits that
come from handling and distribut
ing and wiser handling and distrib
uting of tho products of his soil. Ho
is fighting lo brim; about a realiza
tion of the propliecy uttered nearly
three thousand years ago
"They slisill build houses and
inhabit them: and they shall
phlrtt vineyards and osit the fruit
Of thom, They shall not build and
another inh?bil; they shall not
plant sind another eat."
Xor do I think it too much to bo
lievo that now at last "The cries of
them that have reaped have entered
into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth."
As I said in the beginning, tho
battle for the fanner's rights has
just begun. Tho .vealthy and power
ful Interests lighting io-oporntlvo
market .nj;- will go lo Ibo State Su
premo Court, tho Federal Courts, io
the United Slates Supremo Oiurt.
The fighting farmers need the help
Of all their fellows. And I do not be
lieve that any fanner could havo
heard tho champions of tho specula*
tors and middlemen in Nashville
Court House without realizing that
it is his duty to join with those far
mers who are dubing for freedom
through co-operative marketing.

More than n million readers felt that

como to know him through rending
his famous autobiography, "Tho
Americanization of Edward Bok."
He was'born In Holland.
Il is gonerally known that Applus
Claudius, tho Roman censor, built
tho P.rst really durable highway fa
311 H. C. This highway, named tho
Appian Way, runs from Romo to Ca
pua. lt still exists and enrrios trafile.
Although it Involves many foaturos
applicable to presotit-dny. construc
tion, tho cost of building such a high
way to-day would bc prohibitive.
The Appian Way was built princi
pally by slaves and was deslgned'for
a military highway. Tho labor cost
was practically nil. It was construct
ed of stono and mortar, frequently
to adepth of four feet, and was sur
faced with stono slabs or gravel.

origin of. the modern type of high

" 'Yes, but not of brick. No coun

" 'No,' I answered, 'I don't dpubl

" 'Where have they over tried It
and got away with it as we have?'
he asked, with a delicious 'contempt
in his voice.
" 'Well,' I replied, 'England, for
