(.Special to The Times-Dispatch.] i
LynehbUrg, Vi.. August 11.?a report
coining direct from an oltleial of One
of the trains Of the Virginia Leae
y > tus t.j Indicate that already there
is a movement inside thst organlxa
,; to admit Lynchburg ;us a member
Of the circuit tor the season of 1913.
To accomplish uns the report has It.
.Newport News will bo dropped and
Managet J. j. Grim, of that team, who
owned the Lynchb?rg franchise for
two .ukI a half seasons, is to be given
nrst chance at the Lynchburg end oC
the reorganized circuit.
It is said that Newport News has not
proven to I.,, the bait town It was ex?
pected, although the tans there havq
hot had a i hance id net interested in
' race on account ?t a sorry club,
tet .it the same time, it is claimed
it a town that has not had ball
tor years ouirht to be willing to
patronize a loser for the (lr.-t season,
at least, .Such was tiie case when the
I'i tersburg fans got tho Portsmouth
franchise In 1510.
s\ nether it Is the Intention of the
Virginia magnates to attempt to coma
back to Lynchburg. or not. Is a ques?
tion, but there Is a question its to
;-:'t:.-.g the team under the ownership
of Orlm. There Is no question that tho
tans would support the club liberally
If It was up well In the race, but they
won; not stand for a second division
stand with Orlm at the helm, and ths
club could not possibly be a money?
maker. Orlm made a pork barr..-l full
of coin here In 100S and 1307. but ha ]
got in bad with the fans In 1508. and1
he was bought out by an association
whb h operated the teum at a loss until
the francnlse was taken awny from
t!>. city last June to get down to six
? tubs after the default In Danville.
Lynchburg Is ripe for baseball next
season, but the man or men who hack
the team. If one Is located here, cannot
expect to more than break oven with a
team down !n the race. The fans have
had enough of that, bit they will turn
out in gr.-at numbers for a club Stand

URGES MANY NEW PLANS
Wants Farmer-, to Save Money
by Buying Direct From
the Manufacturers.
Spencer, N. c, August 11.?Th?
midsummer meeting of, the Rowan
County Farmers' L'nion. which con?
vened at Woudlcaf Saturday, came to
u close yesterday will: a magnificent
audress to the farmers by Dr. H. Q.
Alexander, of Charlotte, president of
the suite Farmers' L'nion. He was
heard with mucti Interest by several
hundred ?nuU'ily farmers, who have,
been and are making good in the pro?
fession. Dr. Alexander discussed eco?
nomic marketing of products, and ad?
vocated the use of a big grain eleva?
tor by the farmers and sloiage ware?
houses tor the housing of produce un?
til prices arc favorable. E?:onomlti
distribution was another thing dis?
cussed in an interesting manner by Dr.
Alt xander. Ho urged that county ware?
houses arc not the only need, but'
large central warehouses should be I
established at various centres through?
out the State. These should he used,
by the farmers as storage plants. Still)
another matter which was ably dis?
cussed was the proper distribution ot
manufactured producta. Dr. Alexander
deplored the credit syMein maintained'
by merchants, and hope for the "lay
when this will be discarded. This.
the speaker regarded, as a great hind?
rance to the progress of the country.
The present methods for obtaining any
article on the farm, be argued, are too
clrcultuous. from the manufacturers
to the Jobber; froni the Jobber to the
wholesale dealer; front the wholesale,
dealer to the retailer through a drum?
mer, and from the retailer to the con?
sumer, by which time prfapea have
grown to he enormoUH. The farmers
of the state, he said, tdiould have ono
agency for distribution. The farmer
should also seek and work out a more
economic method for buying the ordin?
ary neccssitle?. The State president
does not advocate the farmers going
Into the general mercantile business,
but he does insifct that there should be
a community of Interests In buying
School* lor farmer*.
The educational Int' rests of the
farmers as regards the farmci boys
and girls tsas handled In u masterful
way by the speaker, lie deplored the
i fact that while we have good schools
I they are inadequate In making good
farmers, and in that they rail to teach
the things that make good farmcj*.
The schools were declared to be too
citified to be adaptable to the needs of
the farmer hoy. The schools should
give Instruction In sell development,
plant llf<-. animal life, ami proper sani?
tation and many 0t1n r fundamentals
not found In the ordinary high school
eirriculum. and should lie made to
conserve the Interests of the 95 per
cent of the country boys und girls
who never see a college. The appeal
of Pr. Alexander was perhaps his
strongest effort of the occasion, and
a;- an evidence that his words met
witli the approval of Iii.- hearers was
shown by the hearty applause.
At the business session ,>: the conven?
tion T. D. Brown, win, lias been the ef?
ficient president of the Rowan Farm?
ers' l'nion for two years, resigned on
account of having been nominated to
the State Senat, in the coming cam?
paign. Ills resignation was accept?
ed witli regret, and M. O. M. Fisher, ono
of Rowan's best and most sucocssfhl
farmers, was chosen president. He la
in thorough accord with the union
