EID Ol KITCIIIÎÎ! (Reprinted by permission of th>- ! New York Sun.) The last man in Congress who ever ought to have been chairman of the Ways and Means Committee of' the house of representatives is Claude Kitchin. In time of peace to place at the head of that committee bo deeply and powerfully involved in the industrial lot of the Ameri can people, a man of such limited intelligence, of such economic igno rance, was lolly and mischief. A man w T ho doesn't know any more about the elementary princi ples of taxation, for example, than to pile such heavy burdens upon thousands of poor prospectors for oil that they could no longer go out and search and bore for oil wells. A man so destitute of business sense that he would compel corpo rations, big and little, to distribute all their earnings, when no business can be safe unless, to take care of future needs and hazards, it sets aBide and holds a reasonable pro portion of its profits instead of squandering them: A man so blinded by his unli censed prejudices that, sinister to ward all prosperity, he cannot see the difference between extraordin ary profits snatched out of abnorm al war business and ordinary prof its plodded out of normal business. A man so mentally topsy turvy that in his revenue measure laêt year he heavily penalized workers for earning their livings, when he imposed upon salaries a special tax, calling it a war profits tax, which not even the leisurely person hav ing inherited a fortune in stocks and bonds was asked to pay. In time of war to keep such a man at the head of the ways and means committee is both a wrong and a peril. When he was violent ly opposing the entry of the Unit ed States into the war to save, be fore it was too late, its honor and its life as well, Kitchin proclaimed that if we had war it would be a cold blooded war, engineered for profit by American plutocracy. When we entered the war Kitch in swore that he would assess its "^£osts on that part of the country north of Mason and Dixon's line. And, as far as he has been able to go up to now, Kitchin has made • good his threat. What his economic, perversity has fallen short of doing his malignant sectionalism has done with a vengeance. If Kitchin made fool taxes mere ly because he did not know any better, he deliberately drove those . taxes, like poisoned spikes, into the vitals of the industry, the trade, the earnings, the savings, the bread and butter of the interests and the people north of Mason and Dixon's line. Kitchin's economic hallucinations and superstitition were bad enough. It was worse, hideously worse, that his passions and hatreds, distilled along with his stupidities and fol lies into the nation's revenue policy should have made the industrial fields north of Mason and Dixon's line tax objects of pillage. Thus Kitchin, the economic igno ramus, but the sectional avenger, has, with his mania for destruction .—always north of Mason and Dix on's line—come to be the most dan gerous man In congress, the most dangerous man in the United States Kitchin is a danger to the very gov ernment of President Wilson be cause his frenzied policy must crip ple resources which should be per manently available for the support of the government. Kitchin is a danger to our valorous army in JKrancebecause he must weaken the ^national power to back it up with munitions and food and clothing. Kitchin is a danger to the future of the nation, in peace no less than in war, because he must paralyze its very arteries. Wherefore it becomes the cardi nal duty of American voters to get rid of Kitchin. Kitchin comeB from Scotland Neck, N. C. But you do not need to live in Scotland Neck, N. C., to vote against Kitchin. You do not need to live in North Carolina to vote against Kitchin. Any man or nny woman that has n ballot in any district of the United States can vote against Kitchin. All that Am erican voters have to do to vote against Kitchin is to vote for re publican nominees for the house of representatives, whereever they may he. This is the way to get rid of Kitchin. If any body says that this would lie war politics when such politics stand adjourned, the right answer is that not by one thousandth part Is it so much politics, war or any other kind, as it is sanity, not so much politics as it is security, not so much politics as it is patriotism. If anybody says that to elect a republican majority to congress would deprive President Wilson of its support in his conduct of the war, the statement simply isn't true. That argument ltBelf is no more than a slippery political ge. Who is there now in the i éml / NOTICE OF GENERAL ELECTION.

Who is. there, democrat or republican, that I I falls to vote the guns, munitions, soldiers, sailors, ships that Mr. Wll needs for the war? Who is there, democrat or republican that fails to vote to give him the railroads, the telephones, that he needs for the war? Who is there that falls to give hint anything and everything he needs? Do the republican mem bers of congress ever fail in any single particular to give President Wilson, for his conduct of the war. the fullest and the strongest sup port? Nobody will honestly say so. With* a republican house. Presi dent Wilson would still have the votes to support his conduct of the war, and they would be intelligent votes. They would be competent votes. But when the American voters had overturned the democratic ma jority in the house, which created Kitchin, the prime revenue maker for the country, and which remains responsible for him, then, as chair man of the ways and means com mittee, as a figure of najtional prominence, as a member of con gress in (he very least degree nrftic able, Kitchin would dlsappeaf as completely as if dropped throgh a trapdoor into the cellar of the Cap itol. Get rid of Kitchin. Bonds buy food for soldiers. Of Interest to Farmers I TAKE SEED CORN CENSUS Between- September 15 and 28 tarnt bureau cooperators in Iowa were working to get a seed corn census from every farm in the state. This was done after Govern Harding, as a war measure, set I aside the two weeks as a period in which every corn grower was urged to gather sufficient seed corn to plant two crops. This would not only insure seed for 1919 but for the following year in case of a fa'l Each farmer was to be listed to whether or not lie had gath ered his seed corn, and it was hop ed that the corn glowers would re spond without an exception. or ure. as SMUT CONTROL TREATMENT To determine the injury result ing to cereal seeds from standard methods of disinfection lor smut j control, experiments have nepentiy been carried out by pathologists of the department of agriculture in 16 of the wheat growing states. Sev enty-eight different lots of seed grain were treated with copper sul- j phate, formaldehyde, and not water and 8,500 germination tests have ! been made to determine the result- j ant injury. It lias fecn found that] of all the small grains, barley Is j the least susceptible to injury by ( any of the standard treatments, j Oats may be injured in many cases ; though not always, by copper sul-1 phate, but seldom by formaldehyde or hot water. Wheat and rye are considerably injured by the hot water treatment and the longer method described in department bulletins is recommended. Copper i 1 sulphate is the only fungicide show- | ing a marked tendency to Injure j , , _ . , . . seed grain, though liming prevents j this injury to a large extent. Hold- j ing seed after treatment by any of ; the methods recommended and prac- ; ticed does not have any appreciable | bad effect on the germination, but ; it is advisable to sow immediately ] after treatment with formaldehyde j and copper sulphate.
