SEES FARMERS’ REVOLT UNLESS AID IS GIVEN William Allen White Expects Reaction in 1922 Election. THREE FACTORS NAMED BY L. B. MICKEL, (Copyright, 1920, by the United Press) EMRORIA. Ksd., Dec. 6.—A dangerous political reaction to “the present cnalad- JuetM.'nt In the matter of agricultural Interests” was forecasted in an Interview today by William Allen White, one-time Bull Moose national committeeman for Kansas. White believes this reaction will take the form of ac “agrarian uprising like that of the nin* -•a which expressed itself In the Farmt s’ Alliance and Popnlist party." These factors, he feels, are the disturb ing elements: 1. A steady decline in the price of everything the fanner has to sell. 2. Continued increase in land rent and Interest rates. 8. Fatinre of unemployment In cities to reduce farm labor wages. Unless the farnier gets relief. White ex pects this political reaction will show itself in the 1922 election. DESCRIBES MEETING EAST SATURDAY. “I really think there will be a danger ous political reaction to the present maladjustment in the matter of agricul tural interests," White said. “Last Saturday there met in Lyon County Courthouse, in response to a more or less spontaneous feeling, seventy-five good staunch, methodic. Republican farmers, the type that is on th- county central committee, and served on the dis trict precinct committees —the big farm cwners in this county. “These men had no organization or leaders, but they were discussing earn estly but not excitedly the terrible con ditions which the farmer has to face. They saw rather de initeiy a gradual decline, and an almost inevitable decline Jn the things the farmer had to sell—his livestock, his grain, his poultry, his hay —and they have seen this decline coming es interest rates have been rising and *b the rent on land has also been increasing. FARMER LABOR ON WAY IP. And while interest and rent have been Increasing and prices decreasing, farm labor has also taken a steady upward trend, and has not been affected as yet by the unemployment of the great cities. Moreover, it will take a vast degree of unemployment in toe great cities to bring farm labor down to the point where it will correspond to the decline of farm products. “The farmer is not talking politics, he is not even thinking about political re lief—not now. But unless he does get relief; if this situation should become acute during the campaign we will say, or 1922, this economic condition is going to take a political turn which is liable to be revolutionary in its character, not un like the agrarian uprising o:' the nine ties, which expressed itself in the Farm trs’ Alliance and the Populist party."

Action may be taken by Judge Solon J. Carter of Superior Court, room 3, which practically will set aside the prac tice of suspending sentences in the city court. The legal right of the city court to suspend sentences will be argued to morrow morning before Judge Carter in the case of Pat Stivens, 336 Agnes street, who is seeking to be released from jail on a writ of habeas corpus. Stivens was sentenced to 185 days on the Indiana State farm and fined SSO on a blind tiger charge by Jude Pro Tern. Frank Sy nmes of the cltv court on Nov. 11, but the court suspended the days on condition that he did nSt engage in the Illegal sale of whisky. On Saturdny Judge Symmes, following the arrest of Stivens on another blind tiger charge, revoked the suspended sentence and or dered Stivens committed to the Indiana State farm. Stivens previously had agreed to the suspended sentence, but hts attorney, Dan Brown, appealed to the county courts In an attempt to get Stivens re leased from Jail so he would not be compelled to serve the days Brown at tacked the legal right of the city court to suspend a sentence. Judge Carter Intimated It is his opin ion that the entire system of suspend ing sentences In the city court was ille gal, but stated that his “Idea” on the metter was subject to change and re vision after heirlug argument on the question. “The whole system of suspended sen tences Is obnoxious to Jurisprduenee,” 6a! 1 Judge Carter. Attorney Brown attacked the record as made in the city court and held that the order committing Stivens to the penal farm was void on Its face. Jurge Carter on seeing the order stated that It was ‘time to tighten up.” Judge Carter arid that since the ques tion of suspended sentence was so vital to the city court lie would request the prosc-utor and other attorneys as frionds of the court, to appear Tuesday and en gage In the arguments. The court refused to release Stivens on ball and ordered him renianded to the county Jail pending the hearing.

He had just opened his store when the thugs entered the front door. Both had the lower part of their faces covered with handkerchiefs. One of the robbers covered Lancaster with a revolver before he gave the gruff command to hold up his hands. Lancaster attempted to knock the re volver from the robber’s hand, running in the direction of the rear door. As he did so the hold-up man fired one shot, which hit Lancaster in the arm and then the intruder ran from the store.
