GROWERS In the first marketing of wheat of the crop of 1906 much hat been lost to the growers by acceptance or low prices made in accordance with the prearranged policy of the specula live buyers They of course agree among themselves to start prices allow as they expect to catch the most eager dumpers and then they avail themselves of every possible big crdp story including the govern 1AA4LA1A E1 a E new the be 20 to 50 Per Cent on AH 50 Per Cent on All reports to frighten Into dumping their All who have sold At the figures actually lost the difference between the they accepted ani the price have received It is to note however flucnces that have on the sur face this year there has nt been has almost declined and a special dispatch from St Louis as as the middle of July admitted that many farmers are storing and stacking their refusing to ac cspt the low prices bid them shows that the doctrine of controlled is becoming well in the minds of farmers yet there has been selling rand losses Who is for this loss to we must say the wheat growers themselves Hall those who sold exercised ordi Y Z- 1v business judgment and their rigiit to hold their grain off the market refusing tQ accept the pre arranged low starting prices the from the threshers would scarce priceswouId But it is not fair to lay all the dumpIttaught them to do so For instance there Iis now lying before us paper farm name

effectively for harm The therefore that and are yet to suffered In 4 this early selling of wheat at ruinous prices must be charged up to the dumping farmers and those who teach them to be dumpers Most farmers now telephones or will have when we are tully organized Each farmer can report his grain cotton tobacco potatoes turkeys hogs oath etc to the county union the connty unions to che district

these will be presided over by the national union The predictions on the wheat cropII of 1906 range from 700000000 to 740000000 bushels These are based on acreage and on condition at the present time when a large part of the crop is harvested In 1901 the crop was 748000000 bushels This is the only time when wheat has passed the 700000 000 mark The yield for 1906 is certain to be next loathe

Ohio Railroad is preparing to spend 1OOOQoohund near to Jackson Tenn as well as doubling its tracks from Jackson to Corinth Miss Since this announce ment was nude any amount of speculation has been indulged in about the plans of the Southern and M 0with respect to West Tennessee and as far east as Nash yule in fact At Jackson the company will greatly increase the capacity of its shops and build a new yard over a mile long and something like 20 feet wide The yard is intended to a large extent to accommodate tho traffic from the double track line which will be used jointly by the M O and the Illinois Central This track will be used by the Illinois Central to the junction of the new line the I C is building to BirminghamThese have been officially stated but there is a number of railroad men who think that this does not tell the story and that as soon as certain things can be ac complished the Southern and M at O will begin their important work between Nashville and the Missis sippi River One of the projects seriously discussed now is that the Southern will build from Nashville to a connection with the Mobile Ohio just south of Cairo with a branch to Paducah and give the Frisco Railroad entrance into Nash yule over that line for certain con cessions elsewhere These three roads have many things in conuaoa in many sections of the country and the several joint deals made recently bear cut this conclusion to a con siderable extent The Frisco and the Southern jointly own the new terminals at New Orleans where the Frisco enters that city over the tracks of the Yazoo line of the Illinois Central In the Birming ham district the three lines are again mixed up in a number of ways Tire Illinois Central will use a part of the M 0 and the Southern line to Birmingham as well as a part of the Frisco and Mobile Ohios new line to Birmingham is over the Frisco for a short distance The Illinois Central anti the South ern are jointly interested in the Nashville Terminal Company and are closely connected in several other ways and places- It is true that these joint arrangements have been to the mutual ad vantage of all the roads concerned in every case but there are a num ber of people who tnmk that these deals are significant and will bring about the construction of several more lines In this section Union City Commercial Our top heavy army is to again be reorganised to give employment to the large number of brigadier gen trots who have nothing to do Seven posts are to be established at once and two more if the funds bold out and in each of these Is to be concentrated enough troops to form brigade with ageneral in command This will necessitate the dismantlement of most of the smaller forts with accommodations for one regi ment or less This is tne Roosevelt Taft plan and the appropiations made by congress of 800000 for army posts and 3000000 for barracks and quarters and 12000 000 for transpoitation of troops are to be manipulated to carry out the scheme It might be cheaper and better to retire a few brigadier gen erals or for congress to reduce their number but such retrenchment could not be expected from a republican administration Herman

matter if you have left old Missouri I write you in regard to the Slkeston and Southeastern R R What figures I have presented in this letter I got from the parties who know what they are talking about and I know that they arc reliable The length of the proposed line is i 30 miles its probable oest including the equipment will he 250100 It is said and truly too that there iis more com wheat and timber on the route of the propoied line that any piece of road in the world of like length With the completion of the levee to Dorcna this rear and the opening up of this road there will be a country to be developed tint will be more fertile and surer of crops than thefamous valley of the Nile With the development oi this new territory comes increased prosperity not of the re publican kind however of the entire country tributary to it The towns that are deer to itwill have an in crease in their trade that will more than compensate for whatever out lay the hat cwt was to the ones interested a is claimed that the opening up of the territory adjacent to this toad will increase your trade in Hickman more than one third The question is can you people afford to 11 this matter go by default It seems that what I hear from those interested in the enterprise tbanho thing that bothering them right now UI terminals in your oily if such is the case you ought to be up and doing for the thing might slip away Nothing is certain you know in this world especially of material things I do not mean by what I said that they may build around your town but the fact of the matter is the road may not be built The natural outlet for the largest per cent of the grain and lumber that will be taken out of the newly developed country will bv through Hickman and it stands to reason that you will be greatly benefited ani will prosper materially by this new influx of the things that brings in the coin of the realm You boys ought to educate your people up to the fact that they can not get along without this road Remember old Sturgeons fate by letting a good thing go by when they thought they could get along without the C A railroad they did get along but how I am satisfied that if the good people of Hickman sinew you boys like I do they would listens to you in regard to enterprises like this You know that I have no interest of a financial nature in the completion of this road consequently there is nothing for me to gain m advising you as regards the proposed line but honestly if you realizsd what It will mean to the development of your city you would not let an issue of your paper go to press without a strong reminder to the people that they are sleeping on yousthe best of success in your work in Hickman and trusting that the people of that enterprising city ap predate you I am Your

charge of rape upon the person of Lsla Jinney while out buggy riding late that evening The seriousness of the offense is Increased by the fact that the girl Is not yet 13 years old On arriving at home

shallow water Dan could not swim well enough to render any assistance and from this fact together with the fact that the sight of the young man drowning excited him so he was compelled to stay and watch his cousin sink and rise the third time and then sink the last time to a watery grave He quickly dressed and ran to the nearest place he could get assistance In a short time a crowd of people were at the river ready to help In the search This was about Jour oclock and dynamiting the bed of the river began at once This was to no avail so drags were secured and dragging the river was kept up un ill at 7tlO oclock the body was caught in deep water quite a distance from where he was seen to sink This Iis attributed to the fact thut there exists a very strong cros I current under the water

is an important item Hick man is a town worthy of better facilities in this respect At one time in the towns history the present service was adequate but not so now She is out of her swaddling clothand ranks as a municipalitythe growing and splendid little metropolis of Western Kentucky Lackof proper transportation facilities iicn incubus that has killed the growth of many promising towns and is a problem that should be solved in Hickman before it is too late A concertedeffort on the part of our business men who have i the nerve and push to meet all obstacles and outside influences willgive Hickman just what she needs at this a critical hour- sVII i We are victims of a single railroad monopoly No one iis especially to blame for this fact but we will be if we let I the present opportunity to relieve ourselves go by It is i within reach today Delays are dangeroultt VIII i I Other roads will come into Hickman when this one i itin operation Concessions on freight rates can then be hadwith connecting lines This is said to be one of the barriers confronting us today The sooner we untangler ourselves from the meshes of railroad autocracy the sooner hitchwill be a permanently dead iaaueIIXI The railroad is in itself an enterprise It fosters en terprise brings citizens factories mills stores and hun dreds of other things that the enterprising citizens of Hick man are glad to welcome and encourage Think whatt another road would do for us X Last but not least our mail service can be greatly im proved Also express traffic In some instances both ofj these are

large a territory inviting i immigration we can offer greater inducements The cost will not be any greater than for this county to work alone and by dividing the ex pence among fco many it will not be by anyone Of course it is unnecessary to say that whatever prospers any part of western Ken lucky is bound to have Its effect on every other part so there really Iis i no selfish reason whywe should attempt to limit the scope of our work b to McCracken county You can readily see how much easier it will be to induce immigration if a wide territory like the west end of the state should extend the invitation in stead of just one county The advantages of desirable immigration are plain The more dangly the country is populated naturally the more valuable the land becomes That is one ad vantage Another iis that new blood Infusesanew methods and stimulates industry The prime reason Iis that we have acres of practically uncultivated land going to waste that requires only the concentrated efforts of skilled husbandmen to make it productive and yield rich harvests 1 All over the south the benefits of immigration are being realized just as it was in the northwest years ago The people up there invited the thrifty German and the hardy Scandanavian to settle in that country and they have made it to blossom The commissioner of immigration- has assured us that practically every desirable immigrant that comes to America has a definite destination in view when he lands For this reason it will be necessary to solicit immi grants in Europe and the bureau of immigration established by the state will be of great benefit in guarantee ing our reliability That is the pur pose of the state department to give official roc guidon to reliable movements Steamship companies and agents of railroads will aid us but we mutt prepare data on the subject for dls trlbutitn possibly send a representa lion across the water If we can enlist the cooperation of other counties in the movement the cost will be nominal on all Think of the result of an increase of SOO tamilles of working people in This section Everyone of the desira ble immigrants are wealth producers and we want no other kind So much derogatory ol immigrants has been said that tho people generally have become unthinkingly prejudiced against foreigners We must recol lect that our ancestors were foreign ers The majority of those who can trace their ancestry back for the length of days that place them among tncfirat families will find they sprang from immigrant stock It is the padrone imported foreigners who flock to the cities settle in colonies and live and think as they did at home that constitute the menace to this country The thrifty foreigner who settles in the country and adopts agricultural pursuits becomes a good American is a wealthproducer and raises an in + dustrious healthy family II am enthusiastic in this work t itemore possibilities 1 see In it Paducah Sun a The United States weather fore cast says
