WALLER _* THE BROTHERHOODS’ INTERVENTION Item from New York Sun, Sept. 27. 1910.—The railway managers of America, despite the legends of the great political power, have not been strong enough to secure in all cases fair play from legislatures, con gresses. commissions and execu tive. The discontent of practic ally every railway president in the United States is sufficient proof that the government is ! not under rail •>. ay control. The investing pnblic, which ! owns the securities of the rail ways, although more than a mil lion strong and having the sym pathetic support of business men generally, has not been ■ strong enough to sedure in all cases fair play for the railways. The doubt entertained concern * ing the value of railway securi ties is sufficient proof that th* government is not under the control of the owners of the railways. Now enters a third influence to demand fair play for the rail ways—namely, the employees of the railways. The great railway brotherhoods, through their of ficers, have prepared a memorial calling attention to the fact that, while in everything the railway has to buy—labor and material— has gone up in price, the only thing they sell—transportation— has gone down, and that this process can not go on indefinate ly without menacing railway wages. Will the brotherhoods be able to do what the railway managers and the railway own | ers have been unable to do—that I is, guarantee fair treatment of : the railways when rate orders are made? There is reason for hoping that the railway managers, ex I ercising such legitimate influence as they possess, plus the railway 'owners, exercising such legiti mate influence as they possess, I plus the railway employes, exer cising such legitimate influence as they possess, wiil be strong enough to counterpoise the pro ducers, shippers and middlemen, who demand lower and lower rates without regard to fairness, j We may be nearer to an adjust ment than we think, and a re moval of the shadow that har rested on the railway business— j that the public could nA be re I lied on to be just. The inter vention of the brotherhoods is ot the highest degree important.

McWilliams, of Hope, representing 1 he Texarkana Marble and Granate Works, was in Prescott Wednesday and while here was a pleasant caller at the Picayune office. TO THE FARMERS OF NEVADA COUNTY I wish to impress on you the importance of rall destruction of the cotton stalks as early as pos sible, While we much pr fer that the stalks be cut and burn ed because this is the only sure way of destruction, however, if you find you can’t do this, the next best thing to do is, after the cattle have had the run of the fields for a few' days, cut and plow under the stalks. The trouble in recommending the plowing under of the stalks is that in those sections where the stalks are rank, the average farmer has not teams and tools necessary to do this work thoroughly, and unless the stalks are completely covered to some depth, the work will be of little, if any vaiue. The object in destroying the stalks at the earliest possible moment in the fall is: 1st. To deprive* the adult weevil of food and breeding places, and, 2nd. To kill the thousands of weevils still in the egg larvae and pupae state in the squares and youn bolls. It should be remembered that it is the late hatched weevil that stands the best chance of surving the winter and doing damage the following year. The adult weevil if deprived of food for some time before it is cold enough to force him in to winter quarters will naturally be weakened by this period of Starvation and the mortality among them will be vastly great er than if they got into winter quarters fully fed. Too much stress cannot be laid on this work. It is one of the most important steps that can possibly be taken by a farmer in his fight against the weevil. A. A. Gordon, Special Agent. DENY CONFERENCE IS TO BE HELD St. Louis, Oct. 23.—A report from Sedalia. Mo., that a confer ence looking to the settlement of the machinists’ strike would be held between General Manager A. W. Sullivan of the Missouri Pacific system ond union officials here is denied tonight by A. VV. Whaton, business agent of the International Association of Ma chinests. The Central Trades and Labor Union of St. Louis was appealed to by the machinists this after noon to take some immediate action that would stay the arrest of their pickets by the police, who are stationed in the vicinity of the shop. No disturbance of any charac ter have been reported and no arrests for assaults have been made. There was a joint meeting of the representative of the allied trades of the Iron Mountain shops who are on strike, at the Maccabee hall yesterday after noon. The purpose of the meet ing, as stated by members of the different unions, was for the purpose of coming together and planning for the best meth ods to be pursued in prosecuting the strike. At present, it was said, no de finite plans have been mapped out, as the unions who are join ing the machinists in sympathy were awaiting the decision at the recent conference in St. Louis. k j j 11/ Alum in foou mu»t therefore act a* a poi»on.” —Prof. Johnson, Yale L'nioersity. / -—-. | Read the label.

To the Officers and Other Em ployers of the Missouri Pa cific Railway Company and St. Louis, Iron Mountain & • Southern Railway Company: There are no material differ ences existing between the Rail way Company and the machinists except the question of the rein statement of the Foreman who went out with the men. The machinists’ organization insists upon their reinstatement to the positions they formerly held, which request has been refused. Tne right of the Railway Com pany to select its officers of whatever rank, including fore man, is one which cannot be re linquished to a labor organiza tion, while the Company is held to responsibility for the safety and efficiency of its service. The action of the other labor organizations to coerce the Rail way Company into compliance with the machinists’ demand by threats of a sympathetic strike, in violation of their contract agreements entered into since the machinists’ strike was de clared, cannot be permitted to influence the Company in its de termination to maintain control of its business through its own* official organization.
