Arrangements for the sale of Red Cross Christmas Seals for 1010 were an nounced in a bulletin issued to-day by the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis and the American Red Cross. "A million for Tuberculosis" will be the slogan for the 1910 campaign. Two features of the sale this year are unique and will bring considerable cap ital to the tuberculosis fighters. The American National Red Cross is to issue the stamps as in former years, but this organization will work in close co-oper ation with the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculo sis, which body will share in the pro ceeds of the sales. The charge to local associations for the use of the national stamps has been reduced also from 20 per cent to 12J per cent, which will nean at least $50,000 more for tubercu losis work in all parts of the United 'Mates. The stamps are to be designated as " Eed Cross Seals" this year and are to be placed on the back of letters instead of on the front. The National Conference of Tubercu losis Secretaries through its president, Mr. John A. Kingsbury, of New York, has issued a letter calling upon all State and local anti-tuberculosis associations to unite wjlh the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuber culosis and the lied Cross Society in the sale of Christmas seals and the extermi nation of tuberculosis. Every effort will be made to discourage the use of local stamps and to encourage the dis tribution of the national stickers.

The divine right of kings was never more pic turesquely and dramatically exempli fied than in the news at the State De partment to-day. His divine right majesty, the em peror of Korea makes a present of a whole empire and many millions of people to the emperor of Japan, who says substantially: "I take this empire for your good," and the trick has been turned. The interest of the United States con sists in seeing that Uncle Spin's trade will not be affected by the deal. Ja pan's justification, as given out by the State department, is substantially that Korea could not govern itself and pro tect foreigners; that reforms were abso lutely essential in Korea, and therefore "Japan shall undertake the entire gov ernment and management of Korea." Japan has formulated the rules for the Government of Korea when an nexed and promises to foreignors in Korea the same rights and immunities as in Japan proper." The export and import duties and tonnage dues are to remain the same. The powers will have existing coast traf fic rights. The free trade port of Mashampo is closed, but a new treaty port, Shinwiju, will be opened. The text of the annexation treaty is also made public, by the State Depart ment. After the recitation of the gift and its acceptance the emperor of Japan graciously continues to the emperor and ex-emperor, crown prince of Korea and many others "dignity and honor ap propriate to their resjieotive ranks," with plenty of money to compensate them for what they have lost. Koreans who distinguish themselves in their an nexed conditions will be granted peer ages and large money fees. Coal Coke Wood Call Tel. 150. Proposition to the Obion County Farmer Read It To the Farmers and others intersted in agricultural developments in Obion County: It will be remembered that last year, after considerable effort, the Farmers Co-operative Demonstration Division of the United States Department of Agri culture was induced to send a represent ative to this Congressional District for the purjxjse of initiating and organiz ing that work in our section, and Mr. W. W. Campbell has spent a year in the work here. By reason of the ex tent of the territory which ho has had to cover, it lias been impossible, of course, for him to give to any one county or individual the full attention desired, but it is hoped that sufficient luw been done to show our people the possibilities and benefits to How from the work. I am pleased to be able to advise that the Department is now ready to take the second step that of appointing an agent for each county if the people of the several counties are ready to give their co-operation. A letter just re ceived by- me from Mr. Knapp, the Superintendent of this Division, advises that he will allot $ 300 out of the funds under his control to such county as will itself contribute a like amount, and with the $000 thus raised an agent will be employed who will give his entire time for at least eight months in the- year to that county, visiting personally and con stantly the farmers who will agree to grow a few acres of some standard crop under the direction and instruction of the Department and give to the demon strators the benefits of the extensive researches and experiments that have made this Department one of the most valuable governmental divisions in the history of the world. I take this method of advising those interested in agricultural development of the fact and venture to urge that immediate interest be taken and organ ization perfected to the end that the county's part may be raised. Of course it will be realized by all that I cannot go into the several counties and under take to raise this fund. Those inter ested in each county will have to take it up. Some one will have to take the lead. It is suggested that perhaps the County Court at its October term may be willing to appropriate all or a part of the amount, and the remainder can be raised by private subscription through farmers institutes, the Farmers Union, merchants associations, fair organiza tions and individuals. I shall be pleased to give any further information that I can to any interest ed, by letter or otherwise. I believe this work, if consummated, will prove of a benefit more far-reaching than we can imagine to every interest of our sec tion. Will not some one in each coun ty take immediate steps to raise this fund so that the work may be organized at once? A general agent for the sec tion will have charge of the county agents, visit them regularly and keep the work going. With an agent in each county devoting his entire time every section of the county can be covered and the benefits carried into every neighborhood. It is, of course, noth ing to me personally except as it is of benefit to all citizens, but knowing the fine results that have attended this work everywhere, I have devoted my best ef forts toward getting its benefits for our people. I have done all that I can do, and it is now "up to" those interested to carry it on. Respectfully, Finis J. Garrktt. Dresden, Term., August 2(, 1910. , CAMPAIGN FUND. Finis Garrett Comments on Taft's Statement. Dresden, Tenn., Aug. 27. Congress man Finis J. Garrett, commenting on the press reports that the keynote letter of President Taft to Chairman MeKin ley of the Republican National Con gressional Committee would recommend further tariff legislation and reductions on certain schedules, said to-day: MIt is very interesting if true, and since the message conies from Beverly, and is scut out under the sanction of reputable press associations, it is pre sumably true. It is a concession, as re ported, that sonie rates are now so ex orbitant that unreasonable profits are being made out of the consuming pub lic by force of law, and the President recommends reduction, although he has again and again declared the Payne bill to be the best tariff bill ever passed by the Republican party. "If, however, it is seriously believed that the letter will be a valuable Repub lican campaign document, then surely, too much is presumed as to a long suf fering public. The idea of getting in formation that will be seriously acted upon from the tariff board which was financed by the last Congress is ridicu lous. That two hundred and fifty thou sand dollars was not voted by the Repub lican party to obtain information upon which to base a reduction of tariff du ties. It was voted because the Repub lican party stood appalled in the pres ence of the maelstrom of criticism of the t'ayne bill, and believing that they coult direct attention from the break ing of their solemn pledges made in 1908 by making more pledges in 1910 that appropriation, ostensibly for in vestigation, was railroaded through. It was pimply voting two hundred and fifty thousand dollars out of the public treas ury for a Republican campaign fund. So far as the good it will accomplish for the people is concerned, it might as well have been thrown into the sea perhaps better nince then no one would have been deceived.

Tiptonvillc, Tenn., August 29. The Tiptonville ice plant, which has been in operation a little more than a month, is running steadily day and night, and is Hitting out, a very tine grade of ice. The deep well is furnihing an inex haustible supply of water. This water has been analyzed and is almost identi cal with that at Dawson Springs. Many citizens of the town arc using no other drinking water. This is thought to Ik; largely responsible for the good health which is existing in town. The plant is installing the machinery for an electric light system which will soon be in oper ation. This company has bought the wires and poles of the Lake County Ice and Light Company of Pyersburg, which has been furnishing lights lor the town. HAD THE INFORMATION. "They had the information all right when they were constructing the mon strocity called the Payne bill in 1909. It is a matter of common knowledge that the hearings on that bill were the most comprehensive ever had in prepar ing a tariff act, and every source of in formation possible was tapped." After this had been done the bill was made up and jammed through the House un der a gag rule passed by the Republi cans, insurgents and regulars alike, with a few honorable exceptions, voting for the rule. This rule prevented any op portunity of amendment by the House itself, except in a few instances. It then passed the Senate and went into confer ence. By the time it was finished the interests had written into it what they desired, and the consuming public was left with nothing to comfort it because no comfort can be drawn from chagrin. "They had the information in Con gress in 1909, but those so-called in surgents in the Republican party men like Dolliver and Cummins who tried to use it, got virtually read out of the Republican party for their pains. "It will be remembered that Presi dent Taft in his campaign in 1908 con strued the otherwise meaningless tariff plank of the Republican platform of that year to promise downward revision of the tariff in the interest of the con sumer. The bill did no such thing, but President Taft signed it, accompanying his signature with an apology to man kind. Later lie went West and in his famous Winona speech made- further apology by declaring in substance that the solidarity of the Republican party was more to be desired than the attain ment of an ideal tariff legislation, which, by the way, is the one semi- epigram witn wincii the iresiuent is credited among his many utterances, and which is about the most remark able statement on a great state question ever made by an American President. "Now we are told that 'the best tariff ever made by the Republican party' must be amended, though it is not yet a year old, and that same public which is still stinging with shame and resent ment over the breaching of plighted faith in 190S-9, is asked to again rely upon the promise of the Republican party to amend it, a promise made on the eve of election. WHAT A FARCK IS THIS. "What a farce it is! This is merely to announce the arrival of the new styles in HANAN SHOES Their perfect fit, lasting shape, choice material and custom workmanship need no special mention. Our Hanan Shoe customers know these things; others can only know them by wearing the shoes. . Latimer & McCutriian The Place to Buy Shoes "In truth it is well known that the old line Republican leaders were op posed to entering upon a tariff revision at all. They resented the public de mand which necessitated an utterance upon the question in the platform in 1908, and purposely made the tariff plank a jumble of words capable of any sort of construction' which political ex igency might dictate. Then after the election it seemed as if they tried to make the public sorry they ever thought of asking for a revision by giving them increase instead of decrease and laugh ing at or abusing those who complained. "Now, almost before the echo of the platitudes and pledges of 1908 has died out, they come, and, through a titular leader, who, according to his own state ment, regards party solidarity as of more importance than a fulfillment of campaign promises, ask for further trust. To what purpose, pray? Only to be deceived again? "The time has come when the Re publican party has to pay in advance on the tariff question. It has too often construed the contract wrong, when asked to pay after the election. Mr. Taft lost his opportunity when he re fused to veto the Payne bill, and the party lost its opportunity to pay in ad vance at the tariff session of 1909, and the later regular session just closed. A Democratic House will do its part to ward fulfilling some of the sacred pledges for downward revision made by the Republican party, and m addition will do some other things which that party did not promise.

Many regard him as the great est defender of the law among the gov ernors of the nation. He won the ap probation of right-thinking people by coming to Chicago last spring to answer the lies liquor men were telling about Kansas. In his great speech at the Ly ric Theatre he made this statement! "Prohibition is the greatest fina. asset of the State of Kansas." He chal lenged any one to point out a blind pig in his State, and said if he could not close it up before sun-down ho would resign his office. The Illinois Issue aptly says: " When Kansas endorses a prohibition, law-enforcing governor, with a record like Stubbs, by 20,000 majority, and the people of Tennessee turn down Patterson, the whiskey gov ernor, by 45,000 majority, the old cry that 'pro"'hition does not prohibit,' in rapidly becoming a joke."
