FROM 808 L. NUNN
PRESIDENT UNION WRITES
Urges Locals to Clean Out-the Dead
beads—Fixing to Start' to Work
On Pooling the County—Appoint
Westfield, June 17.
The Danbury Reporter,
Danbury, N. C.
We notice in. this week's issue
of the Reporter that you mention
the fact that we had returned
again to old Stokes, after work
ing two weeks in Rockingham in
the interest of the pool down
there. We are indeed back at
home rushing things along get
ting ready to canvass this county
in a few days.
We wefe much interested by
the way Rockingham is taking
hold of things down there. She
is indeed a great county. Yet
we find a lot of Union men down
there who are not doing their
duty. We found lots of good
locals down there, and a few
sorry ones. At every local that
was progressive and doing busi
ness we found a live wire for a
president, and at each local that
was not doing anything we found
a deadhead at the helm, and all
the good he was doing was to
preside at each meeting and let |
things drift, and drifting they j
were, out into oblivion. I am I
glad to say though that it was i
the exception and not the rule, j
for most of the locals are alive i
and doing well. Right here in j
our own county we have the;
same kind of men in a few locals!
as officers, and the sooner the |
locals get rid of them the better
off they will be. As I have said
before, we have no patience with
a man whom the members of his
local have elected as their leader,
if he refuses to attend the meet
ings or even call a meeting of
his local. We have a few such
men in this county I am sorry to
say, and let's get rid of them as 1
soon as possible. I know of a
local in this part of the county
that has not had a meeting in
two months, yet the Constitution
and By-laws of the Union plainly
say that the locals must meet
once every jtwo weeks. And l|
wa3 talking with a member of I
the local tiday and he said that j
he did not even know the pass- j
word for the present quarter and j
that he knew almost nothing
about the Union, had no chance I
to learn, as they never had a
meeting, and yet the President
of that local is a strong Union
man. Neglect of duty is the
reason for this.
How can a local expect to keep j
in U uch with the organization if j
it w ver sends a delegate to the'
cour.ty meeting and never has aj
met-Ling of its own? Let's work |
up, have meetings regular, pull!
together and it won't be long be
fore we will reap rewards.
Wn are almost ready to start
on oi r rounds canvassing for the
pool in this county. And are you
peopl i for it? Each local should
call a meeting and discuss the
•abject thoroughly so you will
know how each member stands.
This is *V year to start ii wo
ever aUu u»du MI, (jhiug,
with the present prospect of a
sKort crop and with the other
counties or some of them at least
aiming for a large pool of tobac
co, it does look as though we
could make it a howling success.
Let's resolve, come what may
that we will stand together and
that each of us will do what we
can to make it a success.
Already is the enemy scared.
In Rockingham the warehouse
men of Reidsville, N. C., and
Danville, Va., are offering the
farmers all the money they want
to make a crop with, and in
many instances don't charge any
interest. The Union though is
blocking that little game nicely
in some sections by fining each
member and turning those out
of the locals that borrow any of
the trust's money, for trust
money they say it is. One
warehouseman said he had SIOO,-
000 to loan to farmers this
spring. Ido not know whether
we will have to contend with
that in this county or not, but
hone we won't. Why are they
doing this? The answer is sim
ple. If they can get the Union
men to borrow money from them
they will as a matter of course
take their first load to the ware
house instead of the dry prize,
and then by giving them a fancy
fancy price induce them to come
back again, and when they get
pool beaten they can then force
the price down and soon repair
losses. Oh, they are wary and
will bear watching, but the Un
ion has its eye on them all right,
and is not sleeping.
Our next county meeting will
be held on the Bth day of July
and the Council will meet on the
7th at 8:00 P. M. Let's have a
full delegation from each local,
as we will have to make our final
arrangements for the Dicnic and
elect delegates to the State meet
We will address the different
locals at the following times and
Francisco, June 27th, at 8:00
Collins Town, June 28th, at
8:00 P. M.
Academy, June 29th, at 8:00
Lawsonville, June 30th, at 3:00
Hardbank, July Ist, at 3:00
Please make a special effort to
get each member out to the meet
ing and it will save time and ex
pense to the county.
'You will notice that several of
the apppointments are at night.
All these that are for night are
large locals, and by making a
speech there at night will give
us all of next day to work among
those who do not come to the
The county Union gives us two
days to the local, but I don't
want but one, and if the mem
bers of each local will do their
duty I wijl not use but one. So
help us in this work by being at
your local on the above date and
thereby saye a lot of money to

LARGE CROWD OF VISITORS
Season Opens In Fine Shape—List
Of Guests Now At The Hotel —
Big Crowds Expected For July
The season at Piedmont
Springs has opened in fine shape,
with good crowd from the start.
With summer hotelists the great
difficulty experienced has al
ways been the scarcity of visitors
during the month of June, so
many people who desire to
spend the summer at the resorts
deferring their coming until
July and August. This difficulty
has been successfully met at
Piedmont. The coming of the
jolly crowd of "Girl Scouts"
from Reidsville, Winston, and
other places—a coupe inaugurat
ed by that masterful personality,
Col. Jno. T. Oliver, of the Reids
ville Review, assures a success
ful season, for his crowd of
girls have been drawing cards
for the popular resort from the
first day's arrival. Besides
these, a number of very pleasant
and cultured people from Wins
ton, Greensboro and other points
have also added greatly to the
attractions at Piedmont, and
helped to make June one of
the best months.
For July and August the in
dications are that the Piedmont
hotel will be taxed to its fullest
capacity. Reservations have
already, this soon, been made
for a large crowd of guests,
among this number being some
of the most prominent people
in the State.
