"*eople Out Of Work
Not Fond Farming
One day this week a man, ap
parently 30 years old, came in The
Enquirer office and asked for a
job. He was not a printer and of
course he could not be of any use
“Do you know where I could get
a job?” he inquired.
"Yes,”I told him. “A farmer is

“But,” sqid the stranger, “I do
not want to work on the farm.”
The guy had Just Informed me
that he would like to have a bowl
of soup, and my hand was half
way to my britches pocket to give
him a quarter, but when he told me
with a snap that he refused to work
on the farm I lost interest and sav
ed my money.
The attitude, my friends, some
people have that they’d starve be

There are families in Monroe, and
particularly on the mill hills, who
would be infinitely better off on a
farm where wood is plentiful, where
a cow's keep would be small, chick

gathering. But they positively re
fuse to live elsewhere than in town.
Most Of Whiskey
Drunk By Women?
When the editor of the Home
served as postmaster in MarshvUle
back in the days before we had na
tional prohibition he learned that
most of the whiskey was drunk by*
women, because nearly every fel
low who came in for a money order
for whiskey would make the state
ment that his wife hata’t been well
for some time and she just had to
have a little whiskey. If Senator
Person’s bill to make it lawful for
doctors to prescribe whiskey for
medicine becomes a law, we may
again look for a big' increase in
sickness among the women, for
husbands will be compelled to give
some excuse for getting whiskey
prescriptions, and it does appear
that men are awfully good to their
wives when they need whiskey.

Propaganda Spreader Over

MobOizer Of Religious Bigotry
Forces Said To Seek
New York World.
Washington.—None of the prob
lems Herbert Hoover has faced
since his election has attracted
more attention among political lead
ers here than that presented by
Col. Horace A. Mann. Despatches
from Miami have shown that Col.
Mann has been camping prominent
ly on Mr. Hoover’s doorstep and
evidently expects to have a great
deal to say about distribution of of
fices in the South under the com
Recognition of Col. Mann’s claims
by Mr. Hoover would be particularly
significant because it would involve
open and marked approval of the
part CoL Mann took in the cam
paign. Col. Mann appears to have
been director general of all the
political activities, principally the
mobilization of bigotry, which the
regular committees were afraid or
too careful to appear in.
Col. Kann was first revealed as a
political figure by The World, which
called attention to his mysterious of
fices and equally mysterious func
tions early in the campaign.
Lawyer In Tennessee.
He is a Tennessee lawyer whose
practice has been largely before the
Internal Revenue Bureau. He of
ficiated unobtrusively in pre-con
vention politics, lining up the
Southern Methodists against A1
Smith in Tennessee, where he had
played a minor part in various
Washington first became ac
quainted with him as one of Presi
dent Harding’s poker coterie. He did
not figure in the limelight during
the Coolidge regime, TTut for that
matter few of Harding's unofficial
intimates showed in that period.
He is said to have been brought
to the attention of Herbert Hoover
by Claudius Huston, another Ten
nessean, who had been an assistant
secretary of commerce, when the
candidate was looking around for
some one to handle various ele
ments of the Southern situation
Opened Washington Offices.
Hoover accordingly appointed him
a sort of minister without portfolio.
He opened extensive offices in the
Munsey building, far removed from
the National Republican head
quarters, where Chairman Work
conducted the open affair of the or
ganization. Work did not take kind
ly to the arrangement and the two
had few consultations during the
campaign, but Mann held his part
by royal warrant, so all the nation
al committee had to do with him,
so far as the record shows, was to
hand him an occasional $5,000 al
In the beginning Work professed
to have no knowledge at all of the
Tennessee colonel, and that air of
ignorance was preserved until the
presence of his name on the pay
roll, made it impossible for the
pretense to be continued. Even

vouchsafed as to what he did. It1
became known that he was In com

Smith. It was suspected that acti
! vities the national committee did
not care to father, such as the di
rection of the anti-Catholic propa
ganda, were attended to in the
Denied Klaa Connection.
Because of this report The World
sent a young Western woman, a
stranger to Washington, to Col.
Mann’s office. She presented her
self as being interested in Dakota
politics and asked for literature by
which the women of her country
could be interested in the Hoover
campaign, mentioning that such
topics as the tariff did not fill the
bill. She returned with a sheaf of
publications full of the bitterest
anti-Catholic bigotry. She report
ed that she had obtained them
from the offices of the Fellowship
Forum, the Klan newspaper, to
which she said she had been direct
ed by Col. Mann’s office. This
seemed to link the Colonel with the
Ku Klux Klan. He denied the story.
He could hardly have done any
thing else, for at the time Hoover
had declared that religious intol
erance was absent from his system,
and the national organization was
denying any responsibility for the
flood of indecencies that were being
circulated in the South about Oov.
That propaganda must have cost
hundreds of thousands of dollars,
and the mystery of the financing
has never been cleared up. The
Klan newspapers were shipped in
batches of 35,000 copies to states
where it was thought they would
make an appeal.
In some cases hamlets awoke to
find that there had been a snow
storm of this material in the night
—airplanes had flown over and
dropped them. The documents
bore no imprint telling where they
No Report On Expense*.
The reports of the Republican na
tional committee show no such sums
as must have been spent to pay the
bills for this secret campaign. The
few thousand dollars, allotted, to
Col. Mann would not do more than
pay the expenses of the offices he
maintained and perhaps a moderate
The Colonel declined to be inter
viewed. He is not a rich man, so far
as anybody knows.
During the campaign be reported
to Mr. Hoover only. He preceded the
President-elect to Florida and es
tablished headquarters near Belle
Isle, Hoover’s vacation p’ace, held
numerous conferences with the
Florida Republicans and generally
conducted himself as one with au
thority. He rather enjoys his re
putation of "The Mystery Man” of
the campaign, and, apparently is
keeping up the role.
None of Hoover's close friends in
Washington can remember any
thing suggesting even acquaintance
between the pre ldent-elect and Col.
Mann previous to the Kansas City
convention. They did not move in
the same social circle. However,
once the campaign was under way
Mann was very much in the picture.
He took over the Southern cam
paign from Walter Brown, who was
relegated to Ohio, though he never
had the official title. C. Bascom
Slemp shooed Mann away from
Virginia, but elsewhere nobody
questioned his authority. He ar
ranged his authority. He arrang
ed and managed the first of Hoo
ver’s Southern meetings, that at
Elizabethton, in Eastern Tennessee,
but was absent from the meeting
in keeping with his habit of avoid
ing publicity as far as he could.
There is no doubt that he did a
wonderful Job, and earned whatever
Hoover means to give him in recog

Mrs. King thinking the men were
highwaymen, refused to allow the
