Bass and Brown At tribute The Success of the Organization to the Fact That it is a Farmers’ Union. For phenomenal growth the Farmers' Educational and Co operative Union ot Mississippi, is entitled to the blue ribbon. Yesterday morning its State president, J. M. Bass, of Copiah county, and Executive Commit teeman H. M. Brown, of Yazoo county, were in the city, and from them sone facts were gleaned in reference to this young but fast growing farmers' organ ization. It was organized in this State on March IS. 1909, with a mem bership of 4,100. At its organi zation its promoters wont in debt to the amount of $175 for the purpose of providing the Union wdh Stationery with which to transact its business. Then only a few subordinate unions existed in Mississippi, and these were formed into a State organization. Since that time its growth has been not only steady but rapid, and to-day there are within the State one thousand duly charter ed local unions, while four hun dred more have been organized but not yet chartered. The mem bership has grown from 4,500 to' 50,000, and its growth is more rapid now than at any time of its existence. In a financial way it has been equally successful, and besides having wiped out its original debt of $175, it has now in its treasury over $5,000, and this is on a per capita assessment of only five cents per month. Messrs. Bass and Brown attri bute the success of the organiza tion to the fact that it is a farm er* union composed of real farm ers, doing business for farmers in a way best suited to men of their class by straight business methods —looking out for their own interests and at the same time not interfering with those of other people, where they attempt to tread on their toes. They have confined their membership strictly to those en gaged in agriculture, the one single exception being in the case of editors who will obligate themselves to abide by the laws of the union and advocate its doctrines. Yesterday morning the two gentlemen left, Mr. Bass for Simpson county, and Mr. Brown for Smith, where they go for the purpose of delivering addresses to the farmers of those counties and working up interest in the union in those localities - -Clarion- Ledger.

NEW YORKERS CHEER TILLMAN ON KACE QUESTION TALK APPLAUSE GREETS DEMAND THAT WRONG BE RIGHTED. South Carolina Senator De clares That Doctrine of Equality as Set Forth In the Constitution Is Damnable and Criminal. Waterloo, N. Y. —Senator Ben R. Tillman, of South Carolina, delivered a characteristically, . sensational address before a large and apparently sympathet ic audience here to-night. His topic was the race question from a Southern standpoint, and des pite his radical views, which he expressed in no uncertain terms, he was frequently applauded, and when he declared the doc trine of equality as set forth in the constitution was damnable and criminal he was met with cries of approval and a prolong ed hand-clapping. His demand that the wrong done the South by that amend ment be righted by its repeal also won a storm of applause, and the Carolinian was agreeab ly surprised at the prevalence of what he regarded as purely Southern sentiment in this sec tion—Commercial Appeal.
