portance of low interest rates, the
buying of stock at the right time, the
celling upon the bent market, the
aurance at all times that the daily
operations of the bank or business
shall represent a fair margin of
profit to themselves. The farmer
must do the same.
Co-Operative Marketing Good.
"It js an appreciation of this situa
tion which has called into being,
during the last decade, the many
farmers' co-operative organizations.
For all such organizations, which
shorten the route between the pro
ducer and the ultimate consumer,
with resulting profit both to the pro
ducer and to the consumer, there
can be no legitimate criticism. Co
operative marketing has unquestion
ably resulted in giving the 'farmer
better prices for the things toe raises
not an unfair price, but a fair
price, and it has, therefore, been a
boon to agriculture as well as to
business generally.
"Vc can, by legislation, provide
a better field for the working out
of economic laws, we can postpone
their disastrous operation we can
furnish to industry and agriculaure a
stay of execution whereby more time
and scope is given for the working
out through orderly processes of
production and industry of the
remedies which always harmonize
with the inexorable laws of nature
and political economy. It is legisla
tion of this kind in which we must
be interested, not legislation which
unnaturally seeks to change the
course of these economic laws.
Champions Farm Bloc.
"Politicians, business men and
statesmen are alive to the necessity
of giving increased' relief to agricul
ture. One of the most potent
agencies in directing public atten
tion to the agricultural situation in
the middle west was the much-discussed
farm bloc in congress. A
bloc in congress is not an unusual
thing; the only unusual thing about
the farm blot is that -they were not
ashamed to speak openly of the in
terests they represent. We have
had other blocs in congress we
doubtless have them now. They se
cretly represent distinct phases of
our business and industrial life, too
often with a singleness of purpose
which is not compatible with the
public interest. The farm bloc meas
ures head and shoulders , above
blocs of that selfish character.
"When we were at the peak of
the crisis, in midsummer .of . last
yearj this bloc was largely respon
sible for the forcing through con
gress of the amendment to the War
Iinance corporation act, which, in
six months' time, placed $12,000,000
in the country banks of this state to
be loaned to those engaged in agri
cultural enterprises, and atotal of
over $250,000,000 in other agricul
tural districts. This money camet at
a time when farmers were being
forced to liquidate their products
upon a depressed and unprofitable
market, at a time when bank re
serves throughout the state were
sadly shattered; at a time when bus
iness was in the slough of despair.
This money, coming at the time it
did. furnishing these additional cred
it facilities, enabled the farmers to
hold back their products and permit
ted of a more orderly marketing
generally throughout the state. This-I
changed condition was almost im
mediately reflected in a, slow but
' certain, increase in farm commodity
prices. We are greatly indebted to
the farm bloc for this and other leg
islation which brought substantial
relief to depressed agriculture.
Two Credits Available.

credits available to the farfner and

borrow on six months' paper. This
is the sort of paper the country bank
has held through this deflation pro
cess.. It is this kind of paper which
has caused the farmer the most dis
tress because he was called upon to
liquidate at a most unhappy time. Ii
has also caused what is known as the
seasonal glut. Seventy-five and 80
per cent of the crops are marketed
within 90 days of harvest time. This
means a lower price to the producer,
but not to the consumer. The profits
are reaped by the middle men and
speculators. The crying need is for
such perfected credit facilities as
will permit of orderly marketing
marketing proportionate to the mar
ket's ability to absorb it at a fair
price. This means a better price for
the producer and n higher price for
the consumer. The middle man and
speculator is the loser. A bill which

Bureau federation, the farm bloc,

of congress, providing for a system
of intermediate credits. As you
know, the War Finance corporation
ceases its activities, so far as mak
ing agricultural loans is concerned,
on July 1. 1922. In the four states
of the Kighth federal land bank dis
trict, thev have un-to-date loaned
855,000.000. These agencies may re
new these loans up to three years
after July 1, 1922, but no new loans
may be made. ,
Would Continue Corporation.
"The bills introduced in the house
by Representative Anderson and in
the senate by Senator Lcnroot, are
the work of the joint commission
on agricultural inquiry created by
congress last June. They provide,
in short, for the continuance of the
activities of the War Finance cor
poration through the addition of
what will be known as farm credits
departments of the Federal Land
banks. The government provides a
capital of $1,000,000 for each of the
12 Federal Land banks. The state
and national banks, may discount
with the farm credits department of
the federal land banks, 'any note
or other such obligation, the pro
ceeds of which have been advanced
or used in the first instance for an
agricultural purpose, or for the rais
ing, breeding, fattening or market
ing of live stock.' Such paper hav
ing a maturity of six months or less
may in turn be rcdiscounted with the
Federal Reserve bank. Paper having
a maturity over six months and
under three years is not subject to
rediscount with the Federal Reserve
bank, but against such securities the
farm credits department of the sev
eral federal land banks will issue
bonds or debentures which will be
sold, in much the same manner as
federal farm loan bonds, the pro
ceeds of such sales to be used for
general agricultural purposes in the
making of new discounts for the
state and national banks. Provision
is also made for co-operative loan
associations to operate under the act,
to which loans will be made upon
warehouse receipts of staple agricul
tural products.
New Telephone Valuation
Plan Used by Rail Body
Lincoln. -April .14. (Special.)
The state railway commission hand
ed down a desicion in the Platte
County Telephone company's appli
cation for increased rates which is
looked upon with importance as it
outlines the commission's method of
computing valuation of telephone
holdings. ,
The commission in this case re
fused to consider the immediate re
production cost of this year or any
certain period, minus a set precent
age for deterioration.
Instead, the commission arrived at
the company's rate-fixing value by
averaging reproduction cost for a
number of years. Under its findings
the commission granted the company
permission to increase rates.
Trench Spade for Joffre
i ' Urged by Hot fmeister
Lincoln, April 14. (Special.)
Why not have. Marshal joffre turn
the first shovelful of dirt for Nebras
ka's new $5,000,000 state house with
a trench spade? was the question
asked by Representative Fred Hoff-
meister of Imperial, a m embed of the
road probe committee, upon his ar
rival in Lincoln. ' j
A trench spade is small and could
be put in among our historical
relics," Representative Hoffmeister
said. I hen, too, it would be fitting
for the great French warrior to use
a trench spade because he can han
dle it much better than a real spade."

Young Stockers Are
Scarce in Keith County
11. W. Blomcnkamp was in from
Keystone with six loads of fed
steers which were of sufficient
quality to sell for $7.85 a hundred.
He said there was a large number
of cattle in the feed lots in Keith
county but that young stockers were
scarce and prophesied many empty
iced lots before the season was over.
Mr. Blomenkamp was accompanied
to the market by H. W. Winterer,
retired stockman of Keystone, and
he expressed the opinion that in the
next 10 years stockmen, farmers
and producers in general will get
better treatment than they are get
ting at present. He paid there would
be a realization that the producers
are one of the most important fac
tors in the business life of the coun
try and that there would be a move
ment to give them more of a square
deal than they are getting now.
Mixed Yearling Shipment
Tops Omaha Cattle Market
A shipment of 24 head of mixed

Herefords and he received the high
mark of the day for cattle of that
weight of $8.10 a hundred. Mr.
Welwerding said the consignment
was made of cattle of his own rais
