COOPER DISCUSSES THE APPROACHING CITY ELEC TION. Hon. Noah W. Cooper in duscuss ing the election to be held to elect officers for the first term of our com mission' form of government says the following. "There is still much uncertainty in the public mind about the next City election. A careful examina tion of the new City Charter shows "1. That the election for Mayor and two other Commissioners will be held Thursday, September 11th. "2. If any candidate for Mayor or Commissioner gets a majority of all the votes cast on September 11th, he will be elected. He will have no more running to do. "3 But if there aro three or more candidates for the same office and no one of them gets a majority ol tlie votes cast on September 11th, then tho two candidates receiving the highest votes will run over in a run-off election on September 2fjth, and that will end it. 4 There will be no democratic primary- The election on Septem ber 11th, is a regular election. It is not an ordinary primary election, voters in it must have registered and paid Poll Taxes. "5. Every citizen, white or col ored, of every party, can and should vote in the election September 11th. It Is a non-partisan primary election; conducted by the State and County election officers, and not managed by any party managers. "C Those elected begin service October 14 th. 7The new Charter disregards po litical parties. It is based on the idea that every citizen is a stock holder in the city, and that all citi zens should vote for the best interest of the people regardless of political parties. "8. Section 44 of the new Charter; requires that all officers and employ-! ccs of tho City "Shall bo !cctcd or; appointed with reference to their ( qualifications and fitness, and for thel good of the public service, and with- out reference to their political faith) or party affiliation." 1 "9. The police, fire, water-works and lighting departments are all put under Civil Service rules. No one can be elected to a place in these departments except he measures up to the qualifications required; and no one can be elected or dimslssed except by the votes of three of the Board of five Commissioners. 10. Section 35, requires the police "To enforce every law of the State and Ordinance of tho City, relating to the suppression of crime, or to ,the public health, or to disorderly persons. And the Mayor is super visor of the police. To elect a May or not in full sympathy with the ..en forcement of, "E'very law of the State and Ordinance of the City, would be to nullify the Charter."

During the past few years the talk about the high cost of living has in creased in the cities and towns; is fact everywhere that people have to buy what they live on. Many sug gestions have been offered and prac tically all of them are far from the real cause. There is one thing cer tain, as long as consumption of farm products increases and production does not keep pace, we will have talk of the high cost of living. This country has passed through a period of great development in railroad building, in the growth of manufacturing, in the growth of cities and towns. All the Influences have been exerted to draw the peo ple from the country to the towns and cities. The laborers for work, the young men and young women for positions where they could wear nice clothes and have more social advantages. The farmer, where he could afford to do so, has left his farm to tenants and he has taken his family to town to give them edu cational advantages. The sohools have directed the boys away, instead of to the farm. The result has been decreased production of the farms and consequent increase in cost of the necessaries of life. When we give more attention ot improving our farm lands, using more intelligent methods of cultiva tion, when we give more attention to improving our public roads and our rural schools; when we are will ing to make rural life conidtions at tractive to our boys and girls; when we prove to them the advantages they can have in farming over other lines of work; when we quit belit tling the vocation of farming; when we make available to the farmer of today the information he needs for success in his work, we will find a solution to the problem of the high cost of living, and not before. We must bring about equilibrium; labor is not properly adjusted. The cities and towns are overcrowded with young men and young women seeking positions. The supply ex ceeds the demand and as a conse quence low wages prevail. Our real prosperity is based on the prosperity of the farmer and any other plan will exhaust itself in time. So this problem is one that should enlist the co-operation of the rail roads, the manufacturers, the teach ers, the professional men of all classes. Not that they should give up their present work whatever that! may be, but in helping the farmer to qualify for successfully carrying on his work. All can lend their moral and finan cial support to movements to im prove the rural schools, that will teach agriculture and domestic sci ence, to better roads and to practical demonstration work with the farm ers that will enable them to build up . their souls, improve their meth ods of farming, improve their live stock and encourage them to a high er regard for their vocation as farm ers. It has been said often and truth fully that all other professions and vocations grow out of the needs of faremr; but they have outdistanced the farmer; he has been drifting. He must be aroused and stimulated to take his proper place and develop his industry as others are doing. Prices on the necessities of life cannot be properly adjusted until there is a bet ter adjustment of labor and our farm lands are cultivated with the intelligence that is given to other industries. When the farmer boy is shown that his best opportunity for suc cess is on the farm; when he is given" an insight of farming as it can be, and should be; he will not be hard to convince where his opportunity lies. He Is not to blame for want ing to get away from a vocation that has been treated as the vocation of farming has been. Progressive cities and towns are ready to encourage industries to lo cate in their midst that will employ labor. Large pay rolls stimulate business, the business man regards money spent in that way a good in vestment. How about the farmer whose products are the basis for all prosperity? What has been done to encourage him to improve his land and Increase production? Instead, has he not been regarded more as the easy victim to fleece? Has not the policy been to get his products at the lowest possible price and to sel him his supplies at the highest price? Has it not been the policy to concen trate in the cities and towns the best schools, sending the young inexperi enced teachers to the country schools? Has not the public works lured the labor from the farm to town? What has been done in agri cultural education in the past, has been over the heads of the majority of our farmers that need it most. 1 think all will admit that all the above is true. We have reached a point where a readjustment of conditions is abso utely necessary. Our first need is the products of the farmer and if pricea continue to bo up for food products and the laborer has to pay all his wages for food, what will be the effect on the railroads, the bus! CONFIRMATION PRESENTS ness man and the manufacturer? All have an interest in the successful so lution of this problem and all can assist. We must help the farmer to get on his feet. He must build up his soil. He must use better methods in farming. He must be taken by easy stages, a step at a time. It is worse than useless to offer him something out of his reach. We can provide better rural schools. We can improve the pub lic roads. We can assist in getting better live stock in the country. We can show the fanners the advantage to them in community specializing in live stock. We can emphasize the importance of the vocation of farm ing and educate the farmer boy3 and girls to the farm instead of away from it. We have unconsciously been trying to kill the goose that has been laying our golden eggs; let's take better care of the goose in the future. It would be folly to do other wise.
