SEN. J. A. BROWN SPEAKS
TO (rOOD CROWD AT FBANKLI>
COC?m FA IB
Co-operative M*rk?tl?g D?y Friday?
Introduced By Sr. T. W. KufThi, S?
retary Chamber o' Commerce.
In one of the strongest speeches de
livered In Loulsburg in the Interest
of Co-operative Marketing Senator J. j
A . Brown, of Chadburn, held quite a
big crowd of cooperatOrs and non
ccoperators at strict attention at tiff
Franklin County Pair on Friday, Co
operative Marketing Day. He told of
the success of. the associations In
every place that they be-1 been tried.
Told how the members of the Asso
ciation In the Mississippi Delta got
liom |28 to $30 more per bale for
their cotton last year than their neigh
bor who was on the outside and told
how tho Kentucky tobacco growers
had succeeded In spite of the big fight,
and also of the big success of the
South Carolina growers, whose ad.
vs.ncos this year practically equalled
their sales the year before, and who
wero receiving their additional pay
ments that made them glad they were
members. Being a Director of the
Tobacco Association he explained how
the advances had absolutely nothing
to do with the final sale price and
stated that they were now making
pales to manufacturers representing
prices far beyond the outside market
1 rices.
He paid his respects to <he fellow
v. ? had signed the contracts and was
man. enough to live up to it, say
iiik . at a man who would hide behind
his v,.fe's skirts to avoid the contract
was v. t rse than a coward, that if he
was a soldier In the World War and
did a crime like that he would be shot
before sunrise without the benefit of
clergy. And he branded the fellow
who would sell In his sons name as
bfing worse than the one who would
hide behind his wife's skirts. He
said that the Association had already
sold a lot of tobacco to manufacturers
at prices far above those being paid
or. the open market.
Senator Brown was Introduced by
Mr. Thomas W. Ruffln, Secretary of
the I.ouisburg Chamber of Commerce,
in a few short but spicy and to the
point remarks, in which he advised
the members of the cooperative asso
ciations to deliver their crops and to
do their trading at Louisburg, where
the bantfs and merchants were co-op
erating with them in building their
association, by making liberal advan,
ces on their receipts in addition to the
\ first advance by the Association.

? SIDELIGHTS OF THE U&EAT ?
? WEST *
+ **?? ? ???'?
When one comes In contact with the
people of California, ho is at once
struck with the fact that all of them
are educated, both men and women.
Last spring there were In attendance
In the University of California, In
Berkeley, across the bay from San
Francisco, over 14,000 students In the
regular academic courses, beside*
those in the special branches. We
also noticed that the men and women
were about the same slse, physically.
In the eastern statue, the men are
much larger than the women. A* to
politics, there were Repnblicans. In
dependents, Democrats and Socialists,
in the order named. The large Inde
pendent vote controls the result of
the elections. They elected Wood row
Wilson for his second term, and Sen
ator Hiram Johnson seems to be the
master political mind on the Pacific
slope. In 1916. Mr. Hughes and the
National Republican organisation
snubbed and ignored him. and as a re
sult lost the Presidency.
The same class of men that as a rule
are Democrats in the south are Republi
cans, .in the Great West. Everybody
seems to favor light wines arid beer
The great grape crop of California
would make wine enough to furnish
the world, and the demand for raisins
from the home brewers has increased
the price many times. Even the
mission figs have doubled in value, in
cne year, since they ferment them, and
make a "hooch" that rivals the choice
products of Crooked Creefc in this
rfttintv .
22,000 hotet^ an d boarding houses
are licensed In Satl Francisco, and 300
conventions met there this year, bring
ing visitors parte of the world.
Some one said that there would aver
age 50,000 visitors ard tourists per
day throughout the year.
The most prosperous people, I saw,
were the farmers and fruit growers.
Ten years ago they were as poor as
the farmers in North Carolina, who
raise their crops on a credit secured
by crop liens, and then sold to the ]
trusts at a price fixed by trust agents
themselves. Then they began to form
the Co-operative Marketing Associa
tions, with the result that every farm
in a veritable gold mine, and its own
er thrifty and happy. There are
enough automobiles in the State ot
California, for the whole population
to ride at the same time, as there is a
machine for every five persons. Your
scribe bought fruit in sight of the or
chards, paying 25 cents per pound,;
when he asked why the price was so
high, and the seller Baid, we don't fix
the price, it is fixed by the Association.
He asked, what did you get before you
had the associations, he said five cents
a pound, and the most of our crops rot
ted. _ Now we sell all we can raise, at
fr.ncy prices. The retailers and profi
teers fought the Co-operative Asaocia. ;
tions. Just like certain selfish interests
are fighting their establishment here.
But in the west everything the farm
makes is sold by the Co-operatives,
all the farmers belong to them, they
couldn't exist unless they did, E^gs,
poultry, pigs, stock of all kinds, wheat,
corn, oats and barley are all sold thru
their associations, besides fruits ot all
kinds . At one time last summer there
were en route to the East 6,000 car
loads of fruit at one time. Their roads
are the finest in the world, wide enough
for two autos abreast to pass two
likewise. Most of them hardsurfaced.
No summer heat to soften them, nor
winter's cold to freexe them, they seem
to be permanent and indestructible.
While we of the south have our burden
and shadow, that oft times make it dif
kcult tor us to BOlve the problems that
are presented to us So these tbrilty
people have an "Irresponsible conflict?
foreshadowing them, and that U the
Japanese question. Unless some dis
position is made them, in a hundred
years, the PaciOic slope from Seattle
to San Diego will be a nerw Japan,
The white races can't compete with
them. They already hare the control
and monopoly ot the fruit, truck and
fish trade. They work seven days In
the week, raise from ten to thirty chli
drou to a family. When they one** bay
a piece ot ret! estate. It la off ttta o?r
ket to:a??r. No asslmalation wi.h
| other races. The State passed law*
forbidding the Jape from owning rent
estate In California, then they began
I to form corporations to hold the title*
and Just kept on buying. Some day
the whites will rise np and extermi
nate them, or drive them hack to Nip
pon . The controlling native popula
tion are the descendants from every
state In the East . 1 met many Tar
Heels, who are still patriota In their
adopted home. The women have been
voting many years, California being
one of the first states that adopted
suffrage. They are Just as Industri
ous and Independent as the men.
Members of all the professions, law
yers, doctors and public officials ot
every character. She la not only an
addition tut an adommen'. ttt llieee
positions by reason of her Intellectual
attainments. All thru lite West they
have the community taw, ih.u h. on

Xashville, Oct. 11. ? Thousands of
a (ran all over eastern North Car
eiina ptteml here today tor the 1
ing la which the Tri .Slate
Growers* Co-operative At.
seehs to secure injunctions ? i? i
two men. who are alleged to have sold
their tobacco outside of the imocIi
uon. .
Judge Frank Daniels heard a loos
string of affidavits read this afternoon
?nd tomorrow he will listen to many
h<xr% of oratory by some leading Tar
Heel attorneys. The responsibility of
deciding the issue will rest solely up
on htm, but the attentive audience that
rammed and crammed Nash county's
handsome Df* court house today will
be on hand again tomorrow.
Indicative of the great interest In
these two civil cases that ordinarily
toold attract the attention 01 a mere
handful of interested lawyers was the
attendance at ecu n today.. For half
of today lawyers argued fraud, pain
fully amare of the fact that the big au.
dienee that kept vigil in the court
house, cared not a tinkers' dam about
what they were paying. and It is doubt
ful if a dozen of the men present could
till tonight * hat thut trial was about.
Only I Une> To Interest
Regularly -very fifteen minutes, the
beautiful chime j' that hare been in
stalled to the court house here would
ring out their notes. Then came the
hoar of noon and as the chimes were
jmr-'.mg their longest. Judge Daniels
concluded his charge and the* jury took
the case There was a perceptible
change in the audience. Now would
come the fireworks.
Aaron Sapiro. who came t- North
CaroUna as the apostle of co-operative
marketing of farm products scarcely
two years ago. was oa his feet reading
a long and formidable looking legal
document wherein it was alleged that
W . T. Jones s Nash county farmer,
and Z. A . * HarrelL an Edgecombe to.
Iscco farmer both claimed as mem
bers of the tobacco growers associa
tion. had broken their contract by sell
ing their tobacco on the local market,
and the court was asked to restrain
them from farther selling, and - for
sach other relief as the court might
Arrayed on either side of Mr. Sapiro
*as counsel tor and against the plain
1 tiff, which in this case is the tobacco
association . Appearing with him was
his assistant. Lawrence Levy, Burgess
and Joy-nCr. and James H. Pou. of RaL
e-gh. Henry C. Bourne, of Tarboro,,
land Archie D. Odom. of Nashville.
A rearing against him were such able
attorneys as H G Connie Jr.. of

'the reading of the contract which the
