There is no power among men equal to personal, contact. It was a realization of - this fact that caused the federation of labor to move headquarters years ago to Washington. The labor temple is a monument to their foresight and idea of preparedness. They are there m the watch tower of' organized wage earners. Have they produced results? Read the record of the legislation favorable to labor enacted since they established their offices in the national capital. Look at the wage scale, the payroll of American labor for your answer. The big corporations have always known the power of personal contact with the powers that be and they are always represented at the seat of government. Ninety odd per cent of the long line railroads of America are represented by spokesmen located in the Muncie building. The short line railroads are represented by spokesmen located in the Riggs Na tional Bank building. The -United States Chamber of Commerce ; is an - organization of, fori and by the business men of America, commercial and industrial business men. Last year they paid $300,000 for a lot on which to build a palace which is to cost $2,000,000. This is to be the headquarters, close to the law makers, close to the heart of the na tion, where they can look out for their interests. ; . y The organized farmers have estab lished an office in Washington also. They are doing as others do, but later. They have not as yet financed their project to the commanding position that the others mentioned have. : Thirty of the largest agricultural organizations in America sent repre sentatives to Washington in October to consult with the Federal Reserve Beard and the secretary of the. treas ury to ask that they make operative certain features of laws already en acted, features that would mean mill- lions of dollars to the farmers and no loss to the ultimate consumers of farm products and. they were turned down. The things asked were: The re-establishment Nof the war iSnance corporation which would bring immediate relief by carrying the cot ton crop to the cotton mills of the old world and allow them to v place their goods on the market before paying for the raw cotton. The lack of ability to finance themselves having closed their operations and paralyzed the cotton trade of the world. The same principle applying to other export ma terials. "Every official, with the exception of the secretary of the treasury, in dorsed m the strongest terms this reposition," is the words ' of the president of the American Cotton As sociation. . . And what do you suppose was the defense put up by the secretary? Here it is; "It wojuld not be wise to increase he indebtedness of the governments of Central Europe for the purpose of marketing agricultural products there. I do not thmk it wise for the govern ment to subsidize our producers of to maintain or increase the " level 4 of prices here by stimulating sales to European countries which find them selves unable or unwilling to make payments for their purchases."- There you have it. He doesn't want the markets opened." They are closed What does bankruptcy of farmers mean to the honorable dignified secre tary of the treasury? A man who has been secretary of agriculture and it would seem would have imbibed reasonable undertsanding and sympa thy .for farmers, in his new position of secretary of the treasury, shows a positive antipathy to proposal to save millions to the country without injury to the consuming public, for the con consumers will finally pay as much as they would were the crop market fed gradually as the farmers are desir ous of doing. The other thing asked for was the carrying out of the spirit, letter and purpose of the federal reserve law That liberal extensions of credits be allowed on commercial paper based on farm products "which meet the re quirements of the federal reserve act, due to the fact that our. exports have been blocked by inability of European markets to respond to the demands of trads, for lack of finance. This was refused also. The only thing left for the fanners to do was to form an export corpora- ! tion and finance it, opening up the foreign markets in spite of the handi- utuuguk ituuia uy me cuiiapse ox credits and the depreciation of foreign exchange. This is under way. It is proposed to capitalize an export corporation for handling cotton for $100,000,000. Thi3 effort z'-o'ald receive cut utmost A NEW MUSIC STORE Tomorrow Messrs. .

A COMPLICATION , IN MASSACHUSETTS Barnett is Awfully Shocked to Learn of the Depravity of His Erst- while Boys Boston, Oct. 26. A complication in the vote of the Massachusetts mem bers of the electoral college in the event that this state should go dem ocratic in the November election is Lpossible. This because of the inclus ion on the ballot, among the demo cratic candidates for electors for Cox and Roosevelt, of the name of Charles Francis Adam3, 2nd, treasurer of Harvard College and skipper of the yacht Resolute in the America's cup races, who had requested that x his name be withdrawn. Mr. Adams said that he had been selected by the democratic state con vention without his knowledge, and that he did not wish to stand as a candidate for elector. The letter requesting withdrawal of his name, according to Michael A. O'Leary, chairman of the democratic state committee, did not reach the committee headquarters until 25 min utes before the expiration of the time for withdrawals on Sept. 30. Mr. Adams was notified immediately by telephone that -withdrawal could be accomplished only by sworn state ments by the candidate, according to the chairman, but the time limit ex pired, without action, and the name of Mr. Adams was placed on the ballot. The vote of Mr. Adams, should he be elected, is in question. He has said that he understood an elector had a legal right to vote as he wished. Chairman O'Leary expressed the opin ion that Mr. Adams, if elected, would vote in accordance with the apparent wish of the people who elected him.

Phone 108. 26-5t COMMUNICATION FROM : PRINCIPAL McCALL I am asking the courtesy of the Star to state, in the main, what I be lieve to be the attitude of intelligent negroes in regard to the pending elec tion. The view generally held, that they are in politics for the mere sake of politics, is all wrong; theirs is a higher motive. It, is entirely true, however, that they regard this as an unusual opportunity for appealing to the latent conscience of the race, and a just and legitimate means of awak ening in them a greater interest and pride in the. exercise of their rights and duties as citizens, and ii tsey shall succeed in doing this, I believe their fondest hopes will have been fully realized. Of course negroes at present are republicans in national politics-and naturally so; but in state: and local elections, they generally vote and scratch the local tickets just as others do; and now, as ever, they purpose to cast their ballots, in the interest of the common weaL As an example, some are for bonds and some are against bonds. I beg to state further, that there is rot the slightest chance or 'faintest hope or wish; that the ignorant masses i-ball come into leadership. The in telligcnt minority know this, and are fully conscious that no one would have more to dread from such leader ship than colored people themselves. Speaking for myself, I am not now and never have been in favor of an ig norant electorate, no matter by whom, by what race, or party, but I am not afraid of the man. who thinks and votes his honest convictions, though his be opposed to' raise. , J. D. IIcCalL Doom, Holland, Oct. 8. The severe restrictions which the Dutch govern ment imposed on the movements of the "former German emperor at the time of the Kapp revolution in Ber lin, -at the request of the allied pow ers, appear to be gradually relaxing. William now moves about more freely than at any time since he came to Holland nearly two years .ago. These movements are, of course, con fined to the territorial limits set by a royal decree, including the villages of Doom and Amerongen, but inside this territory the exile is now fulfill ing his dream of living the life of a Dutch country gentleman. He goes frequently to Amerongen, to visit Count Bentinck. his former host and to chat with the notary, Schroot, who is not only the former emperor's business agent and attor ney but also more or less of a per sonal friend. William also calls on a number of families of the Dutch nobility who live around Doom and Amerongen, principally those whose heads belong to the. Knights of St. John, the order of which, as king of Prussia, the Ger man emperor ..was leader. Dutch guards escort him on these trips' but he goes whenever he likes. Doom has lost all curiosity m the Hohenzolleras and only the occasional tourist halts to stare at William's au tomobile as it passes in the streets. "Peggy Stewart" Middy Blouses, formerly $3 reduced to 2.48 at FISHEL'S. 22-8t From the monthly crop reporter, is sued by the bureau of markets, Wash ington, we get these figures in regard to the northern cabbage crop. For 1918 the production" was 41,000 cars; for 1919 31,000, and the estimate 'for 1220 is 48,000 cars. Plainly, then, a big crop of storage cabbage will be carried over this winter, and indica tions are not good for high prices on the Florida spring cabbage. There is ro reason, tho, for our farmers to conclude that they should not put in some cabbage. By reducing .their acreage of former years and by push ing up the yield on what they do plant, the crop ought to be made to pay. care m tne preparation oi tne land, selection of seed and plants, cul- j tivation and heavy applications of f er- j tilizers are means for increasing the ! yield. The best crop of cabbage we ever saw in Florida was a field of; fcve acres on dark, flat, sandy land with one ton of commercial fertilizer; per acre. The yield was 14 tons per acre and paid well at only $30 a ton; for the cabbage. The old orchards of LeConte and Kieff er pears, that have become so infected with blight that they no lenger produce paying crops, can be top-worked to the blight resistant varieties and made to be profitable. For this purpose the" Sand, Cincincis and Dixie pears can be used. They are practically blight-proof and yield heavy crops every year. Six Cincincis trees on Mr. J..H. Mathews' place at Candler have borne heavy crops for fifteen years without a single failure. Right near- are some LeConte trees that have given only two good crops during the same time. Top-worked trees should produce a paying crop the fourth year from the insertion of the top. , . Contrary to the belief of many peo ple, the Marion County Fair is not planned for direct profit to any one. It is an event for the welfare of agri culture and deserves the support of every one. ' The fair association is out of debt now and ary financial profit is to go for building up a better fair. Any one who takes an interest in his community and county should do all he can to help the fair along. The amount of the premiums may not look large enough to him to pay the actual expense of making an exhibit, but the pride and satisfaction of help ing to make his community and coun ty better should be compensation enough. It is our county and our fair. Let's all work hard for both. Wm. A. Sessoms, County Agent. New York,' Oct. 26. School teach ers will examine every pupil in New York November 9 to determine their physical fitness. The department cf heahh set aside the day to stimulate interest of the teachers in their work, expecting them to more quickly detect phyHical defectives and report them promptly to the school physician. For 23 years a department of health dotcor or nurse has visited each pub lic and parochial school in New York daily. The teachers report to then any child exhibiting signs of illness. Nurses examine all pupils monthly for contagious eye and skin diseases und pronounced physical shortcom ings. Those having symptoms of con tagious diseases are immediately sent home. In this way contagious diseases have been held under control here. This was shown in the influenza epi demics which were checked in the schiols so forcibly that attendance was proportionately as great as dar ing the same period in other years, and the sickness and death rate was lower in the five to fifteen-year-old group than for any other period cf life. The health department expects to make vigorous search for unhealthy pupils in the future. Most of the men rejected for war sorvice, it has been noted, had defects which could easily have been prevented or correct ed during childhood.
