TO HELP THE McNAMARAS. Officers of Labor Unions Will be As sessed for That Purpose. Atlanta, Not. 3. One week's pay from every paid officer of a labor union in this country is called for,, to swell the McNamara defense fund in a res olution adopted today by the conven tion of the American Federation of Labor. Every other delegate to the convention not a paid officer, pledged a day's wages to the fund. Another action aimed to help the McNamaras was the adoption of a res olution framed by President Gompers himself endorsing the candidacy of Job Harriman, the Socialist candidate for mayor of Los Angeles, and calling upon wage workers all over the coun try to give such moral and financial support to Harriman's campaign as lays within their power. Leaders in the convention succeeded in heading off the proposition to have the body make a direct appropriation of $50,000 for the McNamara fund. A sum greater than that by $10,000 will be raised by the voluntary subscrip tion of labor leaders if all respond to tie appeal. Several speeches denun ciatory of the prosecutors of the Mc Namaras were made during the day, one Los Angeles delegate making the statement that $5,000,000 would be spent if necessary to secure their conviction. With One Dissenting Tote They En dorse the Aldrich System. New Orleans, La., Nov. 24. With but one dissenting vote the American Bankers' association today gave its unqualified approval to the Aldrich plan for the reform of the monetary system of the United States. Congress was urged to deal with the proposition as an economic ques tion outside the domain of party pol itics. Confidence was expressed that "the high purpose actuating the na tional monetary commission assure XI ! i- XI 1 tut; wuruug uui ui uiv uquuib w ac cordance with the sound principles stated in the plan, in such a maner as to gain the confidence and support of all classes." The single vote against approval of the Aldrich plan was cast by Gen. Wil liam R. Hamby, of Austin, president of the Texas State Banker's associa tion and a prominent banker of the Texas capital. Following the election of officers the 37th annual convention of the associa tion, which convened here Tuesday, came to a close.

Foard of Bandys town ship visited the city Tuesday and, re membering about a promising piece of corn he had, a News man asked him how it turned out. The doctor made 700 bushels on about 13 acres. He is putting this land in wheat this fall. From about five and one-half acres he has made seven bales of cotton the big boll kind, many stalks having 100 bolls He made this by broadcasting a vast amount of manure last fall and using 400 pounds of 10-4 fertilizer to the acre, 200 pounds before planting and 200 under the seed. The rows were five feet apart and the stalks 12 inches apart. Dr. Foard is one of the coun ty's crack farmers and he makes things hump on his place. Catawba County News. Y A RIVER DENIES REPORT. Farmer Offers Half His Cotton. Mr. Wiley Morris was at Middlesex last Tuesday and stated that Mr. J. H. Smith, a farmer living four miles from there, had offered him half of the cot ton he would pick in a twenty-flve-acre field, which had not been picked over at all and will yield more tha na bale per acre. Mr. Morris said his family had worked hard to save his crop and did not want to go over to Mr. Smith's to pick and so he could not accept the offer. Mr. Smith is a good farmer, but cannot get labor to house his cotton. Smithfield Herald. Says Session of Road Congress Was Harmonious. Lexington, Nov. 25. Henry Bran son Varner, president of the North Carolina Good Roads association, sec retary of the Southern Appalachian Good Roads association and publisher of Southern Good Roads, who has just returned from the Road congress at Richmond, today gave out the follow ing statement relative to the reported fight in the congress over federal aid for good roads: "I find that the reports sent out from the American Road congress, which was held in Richmond, Va., this week, gave the impression that the convention had a great wrangle over the question of federal aid for road building, when the truth of the mat ter is that I have never attended a convention which was quite so har Eighteen Chinese Sages Have Reen Working on It for Thirty Years.

While in republican form, the gov ernment prescribed by the savants will be far in advanec of that in vogue in the United States and elsewhere, Ho Lee declares. Economics and the welfare of the proletariat were the chief concerns of the constitution makers. Trusts will be prevented by provis ions limiting firms or corporations to certain shares of the business in their particular lines. Every company must pay a scale of wages prescribed by the government This, Ho Lee said, is a feature partic ularly attractive to the coolie classes, whose pay now holds them down to the famine line. A Perfect Country Home. A writer ln the Lincolnton News gives this description of the home of Mr. Meadows, near Moravian Falls, Wilkes county: Mr. Meadows is a mechanical genius, has patened certain mill machinery and realized a handsome fortune from this source. He has one of the nicest and most comfortable residences we we have ever seen anywhere, in either city of country. To begin with this fortunte, clever and hospitable gentleman has some thing over 300 acres of exceedingly rich and fertile land, lying in the foothills of the Brushy mountains. A bold mountain stream runs through his pasture and here he has erected a. dam. From this he secures the power to turn a line shaft 160 feet in length leading up to his residence. His wood is sawed by machinery, the coffee is ground by machinery, the churning is done by machinery, the washing is done by machinery, and when the weather is warm and the kitchen at mosphere gets hot Mrs. Meadows presses a button and a stream of cool mountain air fans her face while she bends over the cooking range. This artificial breeze comes from a power driven fan outside, through stove pip- Man wants but little her below, but the ladies want a piano.

I am absolutely certain that there was not over three men In the congress who were opposed to fed eral aid; there were two men on the committee who voted against it, but while the committee was in session it the congress by a rising vote, put it self on record as unanimously in fav or of federal aid."
