In this section since last July Wheat is an entire failure The machine will not touch one acre in ten in two counties DOLLAR WHEAT Is there a single farmer who has raised a crop of wheat who does not want dollar wheat We know you are all enthusiastic for dollar wheat You can contemplate tthe consumatlon of long desired Improvements or possibly gratify a long cherished hope of a trip back home or a visit to sons and daughters In the west or edu cation of some younger sons and daughters if you can gel 100 a bushel for ycur wheat You know that dollar wheat makes the cheapest food that goes on the tables hence you can have no consclentous scruples about asking the price You have seen the price of cora and oats and barley advance until the minimum prices were reached Also the tame with cot J 25 to 5D0 per cent I U u uSmith Amberg p ton and hogs and some other crops If you study the market pages of newspapers you have observed how when supplies are large some days and the price goes down when they are small the price goes up and when just enough fo equal the de mand they are steady You have observed this no doubt and it is truly wonderful how many people have learned to watch the price and refuse to market except at the known pricethe minimum price we will say Hog raisers have learned this as well as grain raisers and as long as they refuse to sell at less than the minimum price they can get it Hut there arc not enough wheat raisers controlling their supply There are too many who are waiting to see how it will work There are many who were afraid if they let others sell first they will have to lower prices or not be able to sell at all In Ithis idea they have been encouraged by editors of some farm papers But It is all wrong and we do hope farmers will think for them selves and use common sense in business matters in the future Instead of waiting to see how it will work dont you know that it will nut work at all unless you work it Or if others would work it control enouchsupp1yare you so mean as to want to take the benefit having contributed nothing This is the time for every farmer to do his part Wheat must go to one dallar It will go to the dollar Whether It will be in July or August or September or December or May we will not try to say This all depends on you If you and this 1 a means each of the 160000 farmers in over 2700 counties in the U Sand many in Canada who receive Up to Date Farming will do your part dollar wheat will be realized in July If many of you shirk your duty it Is a duty you will postpone the time But if you refuse to help dollar wheat will be realized for those who do help and who hold their supply There will be so much wheat controlled held for SIOO that the world cannot do without this por tion Therefore after the dumpers dump and the exploiters exploit and the speculators spec on the lumped portion the demand has got to have that portion that is held for one dollar There can be no doubt about It The theory Is sound In fact it is no longer a theory but a fact It has been demonstrated many times in wheat corn oats potatoes cotton etc in the last three years Read tiThe Situation in this number for recent proofs Why Iif any disaster was to visit thewheat crop now that would re duce its yield ten per cent the price would go to 100 very quickly If the government would issue a re port in July showing prospects for the crop ten points lower than in June the price would go to SIOO in a few days But farmers can do more than these They will hold off of the market much more than ten per cent and as they will hold it for a definite price they will produce exactly the same condition as though that much wheat was destroyed as long as their price is retused To make this plainer if you have dollar wheat and your buyer has a 40 i 90 cent demand as far as the de mand being supplied is concerned there might as well be no wheat and if the demand does not become a dollar demand it would perish starve surelyII But wantwe enough at once so the price can be received for all the crop instead of for a part We want all wheat growers to get SI100 or on that basis for Chicago for all their wheat We have shown how this can be done in recent issues of this paper It all depends on control and the visible supply This visible supply mnst be kept law Then the club will be small and the price will rise Dumpers of the past must quit dumping If you have not a granary build one at once Or local unions may build rant or buy an elevator By hok or crook manage to control the supply and the price must come quicklyYour duty your part in this work is to get this matter before all your neighbors Many of them have not heard of this movement nuns others dont understand it All of them will agree that the plan of The American Society of Equity as taught by Up to Date Farming is the only practical one and as they understand fully they will agree it is the acme of perfection New Show Boat Enroute Down the River We are in

mutter Friday July 13th 1906 THE WHEAL CROP OF FULTON COUNTY IS HOOD Reports from all parts of the counII ty are to the oiled that wheat tt- i is i good The average is good Earlier in the summer it was thought I that the crop as a whole would be 1reallybetter than it is but on ac count of the dry weather a few weeks previous to the cutting season it is- I not weighing as heavy as was antici I pated However throughout the country reports are to the effect that the farmers in general are well sat isfied with their crops Of this we are glad It is true the price is not as good as It should be but we i are glad to note the fact that so many of the farmers are holding in the product for higher prices We believe that the A S of E organiz ers are doing some good work in insisting i upon holding tho wheat and of we further believe that if the princi ples of this society are strictly con formed to there is no doubt but that the desired results will be attained The prosperity of the country in general originates on the farm and without prosperity on the farm it is feasible that the innot country general It can prosper to any great extent Give the farmer a good round pricet for his product and labor instead his of paying this money to the gambler in the stock exchanges who buys thousands of bushels of grain every day that never was raised controll ing the market and you will see the country grow- MCCREARY FOR SENATOR It In this issue ot the Courier will be found a card from Senator Jas B hisMcCreary announcing himself as a candidate for reelection to the butUnited States

shotII Monday at the Southern Wood Supply Cos paperwood camp above Hickman by another negro named Sam Johnson The part Ie ulars of the shooting are not known except that the negroes were about a mile from the camp when a shot was heard and later Ross was found with a bullet hole through him the ball entering the back and lodging in the stomach Johnson It is claimed had but a short time a ro shot another negro accldentaly and had never been arrested An effort is being made to locate John sonRoss was brought to Hickman and the wound dressed by Dr Overby the colored doctor and at last ac count was still living but in a pre cnrious condition It makes us very tired indeed to have merchants Insist on us to urge the people to trade at home and not send away to mail order houses or big city stores for their goods and when we go around to settle our ac counts have presented to us a bill head printed away from home or re ceive copy for an ad written on a letter head which never trade at home Yes we believe in it but those who cry out so loud and per sistently should certainly be first to set the example The band boys went to Hickman Wednesday to play for the celebra tion at that place and report a nice time They are high in praise of the treatment accorled them at the hands of the people of Hickman and say that no more enjoyable occasion could have been had at any place

newspaper in tcrviews declared my candidacy for United States Senator r and I now over my own signature submit tc you my candidacy for the rromtna lion as United States Senator ac of cording to the plan announced by Democratic Executive Commit of Kentucky For the honor conferred upon men 1902 when I was elected Udited States Senator I am sincerclj grate foieI have tried to be faith ful and efficient and the manner in which I have discharged my official duties I P leave to the unprejudiced judgment the people of Kentucky a I have always been In favor of j primary elections fairly and legally held and I have alujvya been Opev posed to bossism or machine rule When I was first L candidate for United States Senator the other candidates and mywlf agreed to a twommonths before the election of United States Senator by the General As scmbly but the State Democratic Commtittcc did not deem It for then best interests of the democratic party and refused to order a Pri mary election The proposed Primary election is ordered to be held many months earlier than any Primary election to nominate either State officers or United States Senator was ever held in Kentucky or in any other Stile For many years primaries or con ventions in our State to nominate candidates for State officers have been held in tiny or June of the year in which the candidates nominated were to be voted for at the November election and It has been heretofore believed that said Prl mattes should not occur when presi dentist or Congressional elections are held so that national and State ssues would be separated The Primary election ordered to be hold on the 6th of next November will occur on the regular election day when Representatives In Ian gress will be elected and this Pit mazy election was called eighteen months before the election of a United States Senator by the General Assembly and two years and eight months before the Senator elects can take his seat In the United States Senate and can didates for State offices will be nomi Rated twelve mooihs before they can elected and the call for a Pit nary tq nominate them so early II- In is violation of the talc adopted by the democrats at the last State Con vention In 1904 The success of the Democratic Partyshould be paramount to the success of any tndlvikual and the governing authorities of the demo erotic party should act for the bens of the whole Democratic Party and not for the benefit of a few demo rats The outlook for democratic victory- In the next national election is brighter than it has been in years and becoming more favorable every day Kentucky democrats must give no aW to nile or ruin policies uphold wise and Just policies that will keep Kentucky in the democratic column with an increased democratic majorityI perfect confidence ta the demccrats of Kentucky and I will ingly and gladly submit to their Judgment and their action my aspira lion for a second term ii the United States Senate- I have always been a faithful loyal democrat and I have worked and made speeches in every cam palgn in our State for thirty years and I have always when in office given all of my time to the faithful discharge of my duties and when our State had been republican sev years and Iwas requested by democratic authorities to take charge of the campaign in 1900 I managed the campaign visited peony counties in the State and organized and made many speeches andwith the aid of my brother democrats we redeemed the State from republican rule and gave a majority to our candidate for Govenor and our can didate for President Precedents are not lacking in Kentucky for giving to her Senators and as democrats have not objected poor criticized my record I am ask Ing an endorsement Legislation on important questions and the great issues now before and- I trust my experience and my investigation make mo better equipped for faithful and efficient discharge my duties if I am reelected The democratic majority in Kentucky is small when both parties vote full strength Our majorities- In recent years as compared with those twentyfive years ago admen ish us of the necessity of contest and united party action Every demo era who participates the Primary election should endeavor to strengthen our party and Improve its pros ects for victory at the regular election by conducting the campaign on high and honorable plane and by seeing that every candidate has justice and fair play and that an honest Primary is held and every counted as cast Respectfully James B McCreary Richmond Kentucky June 28th 1904
