JUDE SEE PLAN
TO BLED PUBLIC
Anderson Thinks Miners and Opera
tors "in Cahoots"
ASKS SOME QUESTIONS
Federal Jurist Gets Information From
Two Defendants pn His Indiana
Court.
Indianapolis, Dec. 2.-Mine oper
'tors and mine workers appear to be
in "cahoots to bleed the public" in the
opinion of Judge A. B. Anderson of
the United States district federal
court. Judge Anderson, who ordered
the rescinding of the strike order, ex
pressed himself today in the course
of examination of Alonzo Newcomb,
a miner.
Newcomb was before the court on a
charge of illegal sale of liquor. Judge
Anderson was trying to obtain infor
mation as to the mine operators' at
titude toward the United Mine Work
ers of America.
"Doesn't it seem that you are all
in a conspiracy to milk the public?"
Judge Anderson asked.
Newcomb said the mine workers
are paid only 84 cents a ton for the
coal they mine while they have to pay
the operators $2.20 a ton for that coal
on top of the mine and business have
to haul it themselves.
"Ought not all of yvu come down all
around?" Judge Anderson asked, and
Newcomb said: "I guess you are
right."
{ "Isn't it true that you say the mine
- operators get so much that you want
part of their profits?" persisted the
judge.
Newcomb said this also seened to be
the case whereupon Judge Anderson
remarked that it appeared as though
both factions in the coal trouble werc
in cahoots to bleed the public.
Newcomb said he averaged about $(
a day as a coal digger and had made
much as, $10 a day. He said his lasi
pay check called for $82.27 for 1'
days' work, but that about $18 had t<
be taken out of it for powder an
other expenses owed the mine opera
tors.
When asked why he did not returi
to work in as much as the mines wen
open and the government would afforn
protection Newcomb said:
"Your honor, it would be aell my lif
would be worth to start back to wort
Iwouldn't last long, I don't expect.
Joe Trunko, Hungarian coal miner
also arraigned before Judge Anderso
on a charge of ciolating the Ree
amendment, said he did not knom
about the injunction forbidding th
, strike.
"When they cancelled the strike of
der in here they had their finger
crossed didn't they?" asked Judge Ar
derson.
"I think so," the defendant replie<
Further questioning brought out th
fact that Trunko was married, ha
five children, owned his own home ar
an automobile.
"I tell ytou,' said Judge Andersol
after he said he had been given th
information, "working conditions wi
have to be improved for this man. WI
gentlemen, I can hardly restrain ir
emotion when I think of the conditic
of this man. And the whole counti
-$is in the fix it is on account of tI
condlition these men are in."

Boston, Dec. 2.-A marked featu
of municipal elections in Massach
setts cities today was the fact th
every one of them cast a majority
votes in favor of granting liquor lice
ses. It was well known to the vote
that in view of the coming of natlo
al prohibition the balloting was
merCe formality. State legal autho:
ties, however, had ruled that as t
state local option law had not be
'repealedl the question must appear

NNAT CLARENDON .
FARMERS ARE DOING
Mr. A. P. Burgess, Summerton'
Postmaster, raised a big crop of find
pecans this year. He has more of the
Stewart variety than any other an<
they certainly are fine nuts. A pecai
orchard well taken care of is a pay
ing proposition and will furnish yoi
with a crop the boll weevil cannot de
stroy. This is one of many crop
that can be raised to fight the bol
weevil.
FENCE YOUR LAND
Mrs. F. P. Ervin has just receive
a purebred Southdown ewe from Th
Wisconsin Agricultural College. Sh
now has a pair of purebred South
downs and they are beauties. Shee
fit in very well with most ever
method of farming for they live an
grow largely on weeds. We want t
get rid of all the weeds and we ca
do it cheaply and at a profit to oui
selves by letting the sheep eat then
Sheep also help us fit destructive ir
sects for many of our weeds are n
tural hosts for insects injurious I
crops so when the sheep eat the weed
they destroy innumerable insect eg
wvhich will reduce the next brood<
insects quite considerably. Get son
sheep and let them destroy weeds f<
you but be sure and pen them
night so (logs cannot kill them.
FENCE YOUR FARM
Mr. T. H. McFaddin of Gable
busy these days taking the stum
out of some of hit fields. He recen

as they cannot plow over stumps I
decided to take out the stumps. Th
is a very good thing to (o and a pa

snace and it takes valuable time
plow and cultivate around stumps. I
crease the value and appearance

Throughout the three sessions of th

ht- cotton crop and predicting that the u
er- timate fate of the industry lay in th
the hands of the farmers, who could cot
"( trol the situation by organization an
an adequate system of holding in wai
houses. The keynote of the conventic
was the assertion that it was an cc(

son on the market at one time, that t
correct method was to warehouse

OMPANY
BE ORGANIZED
Resolved, That it is the sense of our
association that a banking trust and
export corporation should be speedily
organized for the purpose of assisting
to furnish financial assistance to the
producer for the making of his crop,
the warehousing of the same and for
the purpose of further furnishing him
with finances so that he can make di
rect sales of his cotton both at home
and abroad.
"Be it further resolved, That the ex
ecutive committee, together with the
executive officials of thrs association
and together with a speceal conmittee
of the nine, be and they are hereby
instructed to take all necessary step;
for the purpose of selling stock, sc
that every county of the State wil
have the opportunity to subscribe t(
the same according to their cotton pr(
(luctions.
"Be it further resolver, That the
American Cotton Association througl
the above committee, shall be urged t(
push the organization of the above
named banking, trust and export cor
poration with all p)ossible speed."
Explains Purpose
President Wannamaker, in his speec
today, explained the proposed organi
zation and its necessity in the follow%
ing language:
"The banking trust and export cot
poration should recCive the full at
proval of the producer, banker an
merchant, and, in fart, the entir
business interest of the State. It wi
create a reform in the handling of ou
great crop which is long past due. N
section can prosper where they are ((
pendent upon the same section I
whom they sell their products ft
their finances, said section largely i
charge of the setting of the price f<
such products. The capital stot
should be divided evenly among ti
several divisions of the State and th<
r allocated to the counties, according
. the number of bales prouce(d. Roug
ly speaking, the computation will 1
I on a basis of about $1.75 per bale
raise the $2,000,000. In allocating ti
f stocks there will be two series, one
. 6O per cent and the other of 40 p
cent. The 60 per cent is allocated
the farmers, which includes the lan
owner, the tenant and the share-cro
per, so that at all times the conti
_ will be invested in the farming el
e ment.
Officers of Company

e dents, a secretary and treasurer a
