' FINANCING FARMERS. The new national federal farm loan board has temporary quarters in the United States treasury, and it is grow ing so rapidly that it is spreading out over an entire section of the build ing. The correspondent of the Exami ner recently visited the new organiza tion that is going to attempt to solve the most serious problem that farm ers have faced since the Jamestown Settlement planted its first rice and corn down in Virginia. A national farm loan association may be organized in any community where ten citizens, owning land, de sire to borrow slA aggregate of not less than $20,000. Loans may be as small as $100 or as large as $10,000. The land must be unencumbered, or the proceeds of the loan must be used in part to remove any lien. In this way the loan of the federal land bank becomes the "first mortgage." Since, however, the pol'cy to be followed will permit of loans to 50 per cent of the appraised value of the land, and 20 per cent of the permanent improvements thereon, there can be found no foult with the liberality of the government policy. . Local boards are now forming throughout the country and farmers desiring loans should group with other farmers to perfect their plans with out delay. At the offices of the loan board, the information was given to your cor respondentand perhaps this is new news that the machinery of the or ganizations will be under full head way about the first of February. When I suggested that tinder those conditions farmers should receive their money in time to spend part of it to visit Washington to see the inaugura tion of our next president of the United States, the response was: "Well, per haps," indicating that in many cases such a result might be attained. THE ENLARGED HOMESTEAD ACT. The interior department at Washing ton designated 1,124,000 acres of new homestead land in August. These ad ditions to lands, subject to homestead, are what is known as non-irrigable land. Entry made thereunder entitles a homesteader to 320 acres instead of 160 acres, as provided under the old homestead laws.If ,a settler already has 160 acres under the former home stead law, he may acquire anaddition al 160 acres under the "enlarged home stead act." A little energy on the part of local communities, may in many cases, secure for the homestead er double the number of acres he now possesses.

Mrs. Lockwood is the only woman who has ever been a candidate for president of the United States, her name having appeared on the regular ballots in 1884, as the can didate of the Women's Equar Rights party. She was re-nominated in 1838. Her platform contained many advance ideas which have since been enacted into legislation. Mrs. Lockwood, in her active days, was a pension attorney, and handled more than 7000 cases. As a practicing attorney she was for years very prominent in legal circles in Washington. COMMISSIONERS TOURING THE COUNTRY. One of the most interesting women in the United States is Mrs. Belva Lockwood, who has just celebrated her The federal farm loan board consists of the secretary of. the treasury, who is chairman ex officio, and four addi tional members of the commission. In order to obtain first hand knowledge of the conditions of the conditions throughout the country, the board started, a few days ago, on a trip through the southern states, and they will visit the principal parts of the south during a tour that will consume about four weeks. Immediately after the election, the itinerary will take the board on another extended trip through Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Ten nessee. Kentucky and West Virginia. After that the northern states will re ceive special personal attention. There is a lot of detail connected with tne organization of the new farm board. However, the information received by the farmer who wishes to make a loan is very well covered by circular num ber one, which will be sent free, with other literature, to all persons address ing a request to the Federal Farm Loan Board, Washington, D. C. MAJ.-GEN. LAWTON'S FAME PERPETUATED IN MUSEUM WASHINGTON, Nov. 2. The name of Major.-General Lawton, famed in thP annals of the American army from the time he entered the service as a volunteer in 1861, until he fell in the Philippines in 1899, has now been per npfnntfid in tha National Museum here by a large collection of his personal belongings intimately connected wun his military career. Among the relics are a congressional medal of honor awarded him for his gallantry in lead ing a charge of skirmishers against the enemy's rifle pits in front of At lanta, two serv'ce swords used in the Civil war, a pair of Mexican shoes he wore when trailing the Apaches, and a dress sword and scabbard own ed by him during the Spanish-American war, together vith the flag of the Eighth Army 'orps flown at his head quarters in the Philippines. GEORGE. H. SMALLEY. Realizing his ability and fitness to serve the taxpayers of Arizona, the Democratic central committer has at tacked George H; Smalley, candidate for state tax commissioner on the elev enth hour, charging that he has never paid taxes in any county he has lived during his twenty years' residence in the state. The taxpayers of Arizona who have benefitted by his excellent work for them as secretary of inde pendent taxpayers' associations will consider the $50,000 he is saving them yearly by his activity in getting in terest for public moneys from banks and other things he has done for them raAher than a charge that he is a non taxpayer. The fact is that Mr. Smalley has been a taxpayer ever since he came to Arizona. He owned three houses in Globe for eight years upon which he paid taxes of several hundred dollars yearly, which the records of that county will bear out. In Pima county he is on the tax rolls, and he has had heavy interest in mining property which paid taxes. During the past four or five years Mr. Smalley has devoted himself to municipal work, and in Maricopa and Pima counties he has saved the tax payers thousands of dollars. The county treasurer's office shows a sav ing of over $5000 for Pima county be cause of the successful fight he made for interest upon the taxpayers' money deposited in banks there. Mr. Smalley has made a good, clean campaign and will be able to meet his opponent with a smile after the elec tion regardless of the outcome. He refers the voters to William Moore, chairman of the state land commis sion, who was chairman of the board of supervisors of Maricopa county, when Mr. Smalley worked in behalf of the taxpayers; and o J. W. Estill, D. S. Cochran, of the board of supervisors of Pima county, who know of his work, Mr. Moore and Mr. Cochran are strong Democrats. Peoples has a Popping good time every night.

H R Matthews, candidate for superintendent of, public instruction, has been one of the hits of the campaign. Mr. Matthews knows what he talks about public scnoois. He is a polished speaker and his diction is perfect. He savs what he will do if elected to the position he seeks. He advocates constructive policies. Over 52 per cent of the money derived from taxes is spent on the public scnoois and the taxnavers' interests will be safe in the hands of an of an experienced and conscientious educator of Mr. Mat thews type.
