' S'nke: Nothin8 was said about dis- to extend the Dortch law to all of the state. Gen. Thompson holds that the act in question is merely an amendment to Chapter 24 of the first session of 1890, and does not enlarge the scope of the registration law in any way. All districts where registration before the passage of the amendment are still without the registration requirement. The following is the opinion: "My dear Gov. Taylor: I have your favor of Aug. 8, but as you doubtless know have been sick and oui ot the office for a month. You say. " 'Since there is considerable con fusion existing in the minds of many voters of the state as to the neces sity of registering under senate bill 212, as passed by the general assembly of the State of Tennessee in 1921, in counties and rural districts not hav ing the Dortch ballot at the time of the aforesaid bill, and in order that there may be no question as to the requirements under said law, I respec tfully request you to furnish your written opinion as to the question of whether or not the voters, living in all secions of the state, are required to register before being eligible to par ticipate in the election of Nov. 7, 1922 "The act you mention is chapter 117 the world by learning largely and cheaply. On the other hand, as has .been suggested, many laborers in factories and mines are taking just the opposite position. They are trying to hold down production. They prevent work- 1 ers from turning out as much product ' as they could. The result is that farmers and ev erybody else must pay more than is right for the prbducts of these fac tories. The farmer is striving to make this a land of plenty and wealth, so far as his production is concerned. But the men who are trying to limit the pro duction of labor are doing their best to make this a land of scarcity and hardship. Whenever it is a question of get ting a fair and just wage for labor, farmers should ' side with labor. It is indeed to the farmer's selfish in terest to see that labor gets its full share of the wealth that it creates. Laborers with good wages will buy sixteen roads some other roads signed up on the same terms. '' A few of the big eastern roads re fused to sign but did affect settle ments .with their men along lines agreed upon. In the case of the L. & N. road no agreement was arranged and the road stated that strikers would be taken back- as needed, but that they would come back as new men. which means hat they lose their seniority. The road was firm in its statement that it would protect to the last the more than 10,000 employees now work ing for the road. Several other roads have declined to accept the Chicago settlement and have or are likely to make separate agreements, with the strikers. Briefly stated the striking shopmen lost pay for around 75 days and in the final settlement accepted the cut authorized by the railway labor board. There is very strong feeling gen erally in an Dusiness circles that a mnr liherallv fnnrl the farmer nrn- ?ul ls "S ine v. w - ' J v - " " -------- f - duces, and of the clothing made from the farmers'- wool and. cotton. On the other hand, it is just as sure of the acts of 1921, and which extends , y not to the farmer's interest to have the JJortch ballot to every part of the j iabor-weges so high that they force state. It is an amendment, therefore, ! prices of g00(js beyond the farmer's to chapter 24 of the first session for , reach. What the average American the year 1800. It does not attempt ; ( : thinking tnrlav is something to amend the act requiring the regis- J jike tnjj tration of voters but only attempts to j . ..j as "a farmer wjsh to see good amend the act prescribing the form of wages for the men who mine coal, ballot and the manner of casting same. ;,. t,i nilivavi pnrl onerate factories. The act, therefore, left the registration j0n the other' hand j these men get law just as though it never had pass ed. In oher words, this registration law has not been changed, and all districts or territories wherein the registration was not required be fore the passage of this act of 1921 are unaffected. I regret that my sickness and ab sence in the otnee preveniea an ear lier reply. Yours very truly, FRANK M. THUMsujn, Attorney-General." It will be remembered that the exorbitantly high wages, then tney raise the price of these products so high that I as a farmer cannot buy enough of these products to keep my family in comfort and I am therefore hurt by the unduly high wages paid to labor. "Moreover, if labor unions hold down the efficiency of labor so that it takes 50 percent more time than it should (and therefore 50 percent ex result of the strike settlement. This fall is expected to see very great im provement over the present business conditions followed by a still greater" increase-the "coming year. The gen- , eral tendency is to an upward move ment of prices on most things, labor included. SAYS CAR WAS NOT STOLEN; BUT BELONGED TO HIS SON The following letter from J. D.
