WITHIN 41 hour* after I
had been advlaed that
there were not a dozen
farmer* in thle county
that made ] per cent
laat year. 1 attended a farm aale.
Bavsrai doaen typical farmer* of
the county war* there, and the
Brat thins I noticed waa that there
ware 41 automobile*, one saddle
ho»*a and two buggies, and that
there were only half a doaan flfcr
vers Intruded among tha autoa. /
There were 75 head of dairy tat
tle put on the block; few of them
•ware of registered atock. and they
••Id for a boot tl 1.000. Tha u*ual
starting bid for a cow waa SISO.
One «*» aold for ISM; a young buM
brought IT SO; yearling* were sold
half a doaen at a time, at I*7 a
head, and calve*, aome of which
were not brought $5l each.
It waa an event when a cow
•old for ieaa (ban 1125, more *old
for 1100 —good dairy cow*, but
nothing phenomenal
Poor year* ago I could gat a*
good calve* given me by tha dairy
men it I took them a few day* aft
er birth, beraue* it co*t more to
raJae a calf then than the calf waa
worth.
Now. theaa price* ware paid by
local farmer*, average men. noma
of them renter*, soma of them with
only a few'acres. but all of them
with cash In hand, or sufficient
standing at the bank to pay 1200
for a cow, and to buy half a doxen
I*s calve* If they felt so Inclined,
and to drive to the sale In a II.I'M)
ear. •
a a a
if what the beat In
formed man In tha coun
ty said about tha profit*
from farming waa true,
, how came It that a few
ef these farmer* gathered around
the auction block In an afternoon
Mid disbursed somewhere between
eleven and twelve thousand dol
lars?
Another Idea hlt'tne In watching
this sal*; The man who wa* s»ll
iltg, gnd wh« waa getting morn
than (10,000 In cash, was a farm
hand five years ago. In five years
ha had cleared at least 110.000;
probably considerable more, for ha
doubtless had been making money
wlfh his herd. With his two
hand*, without capital, merely by
waglcing day and night for five
years, this young man had piled
up, probably;, 115,000 Can the av
erage professional man, or busi
ness man, or skilled mechanic do
the same In town?
Not 2 per cent a year Income,
but still scads of farmers with
hales of greenbacks on their hips,
riding to farm sale* In expensive
cifrs, and thinking no mora of buy
ing a 1500 cow than you would of
buying a pair Of shoes.
I think I have the answer to this
riddle, and I believe I have a
hunch for us city workers who are
trying to pat ahead I I
see where the average family can
play the farmer's game and chop
its expense 20 to 60 per cent. Ho
tomorrow we'll consider thia mat
ter further.

EXCLUSION!
The Solution That Means Peace
The burden of pro-Japanese argument, as presented to the congres
sional committee in Seattle, seems to be that at present there are not
enough Nipponese in the United States to cause any alarm.
Even if tnis were the case, there still would remain the problem of the
future. If their numbers are safe now, will they continue so under
present immigration laws and under the so-called "gentlemen's agree
ment?" • •
It should be sufficiently disquieting to all concerned to know that
even now—assuming that Japanese population is as small as pro-Jap
anese claim—the question presents constant irritation. Looking at it
in as conservative a light as possible, the situation demands strict,at
tention and the exercise of intelligent precaution. f •
Japanese numbers must not increase. If we-are to accept the ex
pressions of the pro-Japanese at their face value, they, too/ recognize
the need for checking further immigration of the little brown men.
The peace of the United States and of Ja{>an lies in the graceful accept
ance of this fact
The "gentlemen's agreement" has not proved a sufficient check. Fig
ures presented by a leading Japanese banker at the hearing yesterday
demonstrated that between 1910 and 1920, during the life of the "gen
tlemen's agreement," the Japanese population in Washington
has doubled.
It is idle for Dr. Matthews and Judge Burke to defend the good in
tentions of the Japanese government. The unalterable fact remains
that the "peaceful penetration" of the Japanese has not slackened in
the past decade, but has increased.
Sons otfeer remedy than the "gentlemen's agreement" must be found.
Dr. Matthews, when pressed for a solution, debited to 'suggest one.
This modesty on the part of the reverend gentleman, laudable as it may
be, is valueless from a practical standpoint
There is a solution—RlGlD EXCLUSION, as rigid as the Japanese
apply to Chinese and Koreans in their own country. Economic necessity
demands it Racial differences intensify the demand.
We have imitated the ostrich long enough. We cannot hide from the
issue any longer. We must face the future resolutely, for the peace and
contentment of the American people. ,

JAPAN SENDING
PICTURE BRIDES
Officials Connive in Issuing
Fraudulent Passports
KAOARARI, Japan, July ST-j-Jap
sneite "pirture brides" are aw arming
l» IM t'nitrd State*.
Jap official* are winking, with
both <->rn, at violations of the agree
ment.
"Picture hridn" are younj women
whose photograph* are pent to Call
fornla or other Pacific coa*t ataten,
where thousand* of Japanese single
men want wive*. A Jap selects a
specimen that look* good to him,
sends home the price and the bride la
whipped, contrary to American Immi
gration law* and American morala.
I-ast winter, at Washington, a new
convention waa negotiated between
the two countries. Japan bound It
self not to lmue pa**|>orta to "picture
brides" after April 29. 1920, and the
I'nlted States agreed to honor all
paa*port* Issued up to that time. It
waa stipulated that all passports be
came Invalid six months after date
of ln*ue.
The plain Intent of the agreement
win that no "picture brides" would
ho allowed to enter the United Statea
after A tin not 29. 1920.
But that doesn't bother the offi
cials at Tokyo. They keep right on
merrily Issuing passports. A minor
official "changes" the date, making
It prior to February 29. and the bride
starts for America. Hundred* of
such fraudulent push porta have been
