"This decision -should settle final
ly the question of the unconstution
ality of the tobacco tax law. Its pro
visions were so arbitrary that I al
ways believed the Court3 would in
validate it when it came before
"There has bee .ollected in this
state about $2,00 1,000 from about
15,000 farmers who refused to si-i
the co-operative contract, and trf'
farmers will now seek refunds of
the taxes collected.
"The only other court to which
the case may be carried by certion
ari is the U. S. Supreme Court and
it is my understanding that the
counsel for the government do not
intend taking that course. Even if
they ask that the case be certified
I'm sure the Supreme court will de
cline the request," said Mr MoXeil.
The Kerr-Smith Tobacco Act made
a piker of the Colonial tax which
brought on the Boston Tea Party, if
what many farmers say is true. There
will bo a period of 90 days in which
appeal mv bp taken, and if ;.
not taken, it is likely that the farm

Dredging To Begin
The Hill Dredging Company of
Ventner, N. J., has been awarded
the contract to do $105,402 worth
of maintenance dredging on the In

Beaufort. Tho work will start in the

We had been advised the ni.j-'nt before
by Cc.pt f red G:'.'":i.-. oi t ape Look

would be no suitable Gulf tream day.
His advice v: r-.i'tjatiated by
Richard Daii;- ol t'.w U. S. Weather
Bureau at Hatteras whose official
forecast was for strong northerly
winds from Hatteia3 to Sandy Hook
and in this case he said also
meant Cape Lookout weather.
Naturally we took a chance because
the wind had shifted on Friday from
Southwest to north and we believed
the sea would be knocked smooth.
But it was not and if any other boat
man was seven or eight miles S, S.
East of Beaufort Inlet on Saturday
A. M. about 7:30 o'clock they will
vouch for that statement. We, Mr.
Peery and myself were both good,
sailors but we had also fished in Gulf
Stream waters during choppy seas
without much succses. So a few miles
farther out with the waters getting
more choppy all the time we had the

government, bo the arbiter of respec
tive rights. In other words, employ
ers and workers, must be and are
prepared to adjust their battle tac
tics to public sentiment. To put it
still another way, agencies of gov
ernment must be prepared to um
pire labor difficulties and see that
the public interest is fully protect
ed. This is the objective of all now
legislation dealing with labor prob
lems. IT IS INTERESTING to note that
the tremendous strides in labor or

enteen years ago, when t.-de union
memberships passed the live million
mink. With the outbreak of the
Worid War, political and economic
conditions highly favorable to the
giowth of organized labor were cre
ated. The flow of European orders
into this country and later the heavy
war purchases by our own govern
ment produced a state of great bus
iness and demand for labor. The
stoppage of immigration and the
withdrawal of man power for mili
tary purposes also helped to tighten
the labor market ;:vl .-t e-v;.'.:-n the

CON! -IONS FOR THE present
drive f;r the stronger organization
of labor are, of course, entirely dif

Instead of a shortage of labor we
have a surplus and unemployment is
wide. Personal contacts between
employers and employees are few

is a contributing factor to main
taining factory output with fewer
workers. Small and inefficient plants
are being eliminated and regional
shifts of factories and scientific man
agement are having great effect..
Thus labor's powers of adjustment
to changing conditions are even
more demanded in the future than
in the past.
OBVIOUSLY, THE part of the
government in these changes is tre
mendous. Maximum effort is neces
sary to the end that neither capital
nor labor will encroach on the rights
of the public. The farmer, who is
directly affected, must be protected.
Agriculture occpies a dominant place
as a source of supply for raw ma
terials for factory and food for
workers. And Congressional leaders
are determined that the rigl.is of
the farmer shall not be overlooked
as our rural population watches the
fight between the organized forces
of industry and the organized forc
es of labor. There are high hopes
that Congress will, through desirable
and equitable legislation now pend
ing, contribute to a solution of the
problem with due regard for the
rights of all.
