Made Improper Use of the Mails E. Y. Clarke, imperial wizard pro tem of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was indicted by the United States grand jury here yesterday on charges of "using the mails to effect scheme to defraud." He was released on bond of $500. The charges against Mr. Clarke, who yesterday announced his resigna tion as pro tempore head of the klan to take effect November 10, are based, according to the true bill rendered by the grand jury, on alleged use of the mails in collecting money from cer tain members, subordinate officers and employes of the Ku Klux Klan on the prtense that such moneys would be used to pay premiums to surety com panies furnishing bonds for these klansmen. The indictment alleged that the sums collected were in excess of the amount required to pay such prem iums, and that this excess was con verted to the personal use and benefit of Mr. Clarke. Mrs. T.

FISHEL'S. 2t More Optimistic Feeling Prevails Among the Hard-Pressed People Of Northern Minnesota Duluth, Minn., Oct. 6. A feeling of optimism prevailed in most sections of the Northern Minnesota fire zones today. The fire fighting crews were able to make considerable progress yesterday, aided by foggy weather and decreased wind. No new out breaks have been reported today. Sev eral crews reported that during the night they had gained the upper hand on the fires which have been threaten ing to get beyond control. MARKETING FARM PRODUCTS (By K. C. Moore, County Agent) Under our present system of sell ing tomatoes and melons each grower is a competitor of each other grower in selling to buyers. In turn each buyer is a competitor of each other buyer in putting them into the hands of the commission firms. They com pete for the brokers' trade and they for the retail, hucksters, etc. The following quotation from a let ter written by Mr. A. W. Simmons, president of the Walla Walla Valley Prune Growers Association, is illumi nating. "One of the local shippers is ex plaining his method of doing business said: 'At the beginning of the ship ping season, I was offered 70 cents per suitcase for prunes and I sold a j large number of cars at that price. I ! was then offered 65 cents per suitcase and I sold a large number of cars at that price. And while I was selling at 65 cents the other eight shipping houses were holding for 70 cents. I was then offered 60 cents and I sold a large number of cars at that price and while I was selling at 60 cents the other fellows were holding for 65 cents Now each time that this shipper slipped down the price five cents it cost the prune growers of this valley $47,000, and when I tell you he slipped down the price to 35 cents the enor mity of the loss to the prune growers or this valley can be estimated." This past season 720 car loads of tomatoes were shipped out of Marion county, exclusive of express ship ments. This means at least 302,400 crates. The market price on these for two weeks ran around $3.50 per crate. A conservative estimate of the amount that sold at these prices is one-third of our . shipments. If our growers had got this market price they would have received for this third of the crop about $350,400. But they did not average as high as $1.50 per crate. In other words, they got about $151,240, while the buyers got about $200,000. If our tomato growers had been or ganized and shipped through an asso ciation they could have paid every ex pense and realized about $125,000 more for this third of the crop. And it is reasonable to suppose that by controlling the distribution the other two-thirds of what was shipped from Marion county would have piled up a much larger net profit. It is a conservative estimate that the buyers netted 50c. a crate on an other third of our crop and 25c. a crate on another third. This would figure $75,600. Add this to the $125,000 and it is seen that on this one crop alone Marion county, (the farmers, the mer chants, the bankers), would have been $200,000 richer. Suppose this figure should be divided in half; it would seem worth pulling for. Should this not interest every banker and every business man in Marion county The $200,000 figure however is not too high. A well organized associa tion, following the plans that have ben proven out in other sections, would have, by better grading and distribution, shipped more cars of to matoes and secured a better price on the latter two-thirds of the crop that did move, and there would likely not have been a great price reducing com petition. Has anyone failed to observe that Ocala has had fresh tomatoes in our market practically all the year And has anyone found a tomato ship ped here since our shipping season closed that would grade fancy? What does this mean? It means that or eanization is supplying us and the whole United States and Canada the rpsir around with fresh fruits and vegetables, and it means that organi zation is selling the lower grades and even culls. The writer has on many occasions this summer noted that most of the tomatoes displayed here would not have been considered for a minute by our buyers this past spring. A vast lot of better tomatoes were dumped along our highways and in the fields and woods. Another reason why the $200,000 figure is not too high is that many of our growers were compelled to pay Broken by Lieuts.
