time and 1 presume it would be unjust to draw the line here There were no more interruptions When asked the difference between a statesman anda politician Mr Shaw defined it as the difference between a young man seeking a position and u boy looking for a job A reporter once asked SecretaryShaw- If he intended Investigating the cus toms frauds in New York- I knew a fellow once said Shaw who hunted foxes with a brass Ibahd A long and embarrassing pause while he went on sigriing his mail He didnt get any foxes Wall street dubbed Shaw the farmer which is not at all a bad card among the real farmers wliosirfeeling for Wall street would sour fresh milk The friends of the exsecretary ought to use that Shaw showed the high financiers howeyer that you cannot always tell a farmer by the cut of his clothes When he first went to New York they gathered around him to know what he intended to do In reply he told a story Out in Shaws town of Denison a wealthy man once announced that he intended putting up a 750000 building As he owned real estate all over the place there was i great deal of excitement as to where the towns biggest structure was to be located Finally curiosity reached such a pitch that a committee waited on the man and asked him point blank fter nn embarrassing pause he re plied Now when anybody comes to you to ask YOU where I am going U put tttat 750000 building you tel him you have seen me and then you tell him that sou dont know The financiers saw the point and dejectedly wended their way back to the Stock ExchangeSecretary Shaw was seen one day backed up against

J i t raIlcauseswhere has been the competition Did the Trifst bid agalnit itself or farm ers cut prices to undersell each Other Not a bit ofit While you were studying law serving the American Tobacco Company I was raising tobacco and while you know more about law and corporations than I know you have nt caught evenj not1wor uar years when local buyers bought the tobacco on the surrounding farms prized it shipped it to Cincinnati and sold It for guidedbY1supy farm values One year they bought at customary prices with thevcondl tlons well in mind there was no over- prOduction no shrinkage In consump tion and corn wheat hogs cattle etc were normal They Chipped their pur chases to Cincinnati lost money and wondered what mistake in Judgment they had made The next year condi tlbns were as before but with great precaution these buyers to the chagrin of the fafmrspaf 1ess for tobacco In the barn arid still lost on the CIa cIt at1 breaks and tgaIn wondered why The next year they bought a little lower and lost and the next year and th e next until flfjteen wen within sight of the farm on which I live friends neighbors kinsmen good sub stantial citizens were either crippled or ruined At last It dawn iCtImsjofarmer whose iflcomO had been owing year by year stejadily less while ofIgrowing steadily greater The Trust notwithstanding however one dealer made money He s id Any man who could not buy tobacco and sell tat1 the same price and make money was a fool apd deserved to fail The triumphs of right are not always imme diate Then the Trust otenlya dcon fessedly took charge They sent their buyers one to each county and when they offered a farmer a pric for his tobacco and he failed to take ItJ he had the otrnatvdof paying for having it prized the freight to Cincinnati ware house charges etc and at last hav ing to accept from th city buyer the same prl e he had declined on the farm tIe wak at the mercyof the Trust in the field and on the Breaks Some times theses county buyers were so courteous aod gracious that the farmer parted with a smile from the product of his years toll for enough money to keep bimallVe until he could have an other crop ready for the Trust with enough over perhaps to enatjle him to spend a day at the county fair Again a buyer would be sent who tiad favors to award and guudges to pay The to bacco of the man whom he sought to favor always looked so well as to command the highest price his scale allowed while anothe1 mans tobacco ho matter what the wind or weather nev1 er looked well to him In some instances farmers had the humiliation of waiting upon the highway to ask the buyer to come look at their tobacco while some farms be never went Th semen must ship their tobacco to Cincinnati And there receive the same price or less than thor neighbors had received in the barn and out of that price pay the cost of prizing shipping and warehouse charges I havp taken tobacco to the Amen can Tobacco Companys warehouse and waited an hour after It was un oadedI to what I was to get for 1ave1when times were the best been paid cents for tobacco every bundle of which went Into the A grade and smiled all the way home to have re ceived so much though I should have receivedtwice that amount The exp rieiice of this community was the ex per1enc of every community iii the tobacco growing district The Trust virtually said to the farmerLth go ahead and raige tobacco it Is ready to sell we will tell ypu what we will give for it They gave the minimum wage thdt which sustains lifeTmerely with nothing for that which make life worth lining and gives fujlness beauty and grace No wonder YOU1 Excellency that the once proud farmcr lost some of his high spirit and noble bearing I have seen the tone and spirit of whole neighborhoods changed by this mastery Do you wonder that they sought means of relief i 1IThe bias of your miud seems more than probable every time refer to the efrrtof the farmers to rid them selves of this incubus Consciously or unconsciously your statements are so made as to e a false impression on the uniformed Take the notable instance in which you copvey the im pressibn that even the law discrimi t I a nates against the buyers deprivIng them of a power which It grants to the farmer We have a statute which makes It lawful for a farmer to pool 1hepitof the fact that the Trust has for many years succeeded In fixing the price PJ onboth the facItqredadjustment of prices has been so skill ful as to pay 56 per cent dividend on watered stock BurleyTobaccodiscredits the organization reflects up on Its managers and implies that It is a mistake and a failure and directly responsible for all distprbances a thing not justified b11ts principles and motives or warranted by its results You say the members are dissatisfied because the managers have refused to take prices which the owners of to bacco in the pool would Ibe willing to take I have not heard of one niember whojtfas dissatisfied with the action of the management In declining the WIn- chester offer the only offer the Trust has ever made Again you say Man pricesforprice etc The members of the SO- ciety set the price on the tobacco and the managers are but holIng it at that price Above the market price thejrnmarkets fort er products have been paralyzed How do you justify this statement The farmers themselves have had no experience that would jus tify It Are your words calculated to discourage the illegal Trust or to en Jt1akejcommon del ver him over to become the dupe of the Trust who Is using him to dis rupt the Burley Society and to prolong hijf own bondage The member of the Society who would sell his tobacco on the sly is willing tolprQ t by the market made by the united effort of all the members and to leave his brother the bag to bold He should be held to his con tract The grower outside the Society who sells to the Trust profits for the present at least by the efforts of oth ers while ie throws all the weight of his f influence and his crop against the very movement that for two years IjIeIstool and ally of the Trust and would certainly Jearn his mistake should he and the Trust succeed in disrupting the Society These men who have delay ed the success of the farmers union need to have less said to them about their right under the law and more about thr duty as man to man as fel lows In a common cauSe They should be helped to see that their failure to cooperate with their fellows is the one cause that has prolonged the struggle and that their spedyconversion Is the quickest route to peace You caution conditlonsto consider a new business condition that the farmer has decided to talke a hand in pricing his own product The problem is a now one to stats manship By legislative experiment- we shall finally learn how to deal with organized greed but the process of ex pertinent will be retarded by the pad ded registration list stuffed ballot boxes and dishonest counting of votes as wen as by corporation lawyers in the legislature the executive and the judicial departments of ours govern ment Meantime the farmers can with out asking leave of any oneTmeet a combine to reduce the price of their labor by a combine to hold tjheir prod ucts fora fair price You imply that no good and only HI has come from the farmers movement The present prices of tobacco bear testimony tothe fact that the Equity Society has accom pUshed gppd iu causing to be paid into the State for all tobacco sold these ast two years half as much again money as would otherwise have been paid You speak of the suffering of th0 poor Senator Beveridgo said to the Yale students the other day Nothing wrong is ever made right Without pain There is no such thing as a comfort able reform Sad enough the poor are ahvjaxs the ones to suffer first and most in any movement for reform Bujt it is far easier and nobler to suffer in a fight for freedom than to suffer in the endurance of slavery The suffer lug of th0 poor in the Society is only prolonged by the willingness of both the poor and the 1lc out of the Society to profit by theli5 l erlng and sacrifice However in ny section it Is not the poor man who ends his back to set tobacco and wio day after day drenches his clothln j in worming and suckering tobacco vet with rain and dew who is slow to join and adhere to the Burley Societ He is the land lord with 500 120 2000 acres ot land whose income tax is sufficient for his wants and Who fights a local school tax or any other en erprise that calls on him for money Hefts the man who proposes to attend to his own busi nessandto let other people attend to theirs and who e interests are bounded by hfs linef mces These men pay their debts obey the laws a haverlobsd habits They are liked j and respected by their neighbors and lack only the spirit of cooperation to make them the best of citizens We need their cooperation and pray for their conversion But they are a mi majOrltyHadabiding minority of the 1770s con todaybeMajesty King Edward VII After Yorktown that minority had the alternative of settling down with the major Ity or taking a voyage to the other side where they might still crook the pregnant hinges of the knee and doff the cap to ppalty and history has forgotten to record their names When the farmer of whom you spoke in a recent speech in Louisville told you how much money be and his tenants bad made raising tobacco did kjworthwas organized eighteen years ago with a capital stock of 400000 and now hada capital stock of 50000000 bay ing in eighteen years multiplied itself by 125 and that this corporation in 1906 pad the farmers 20000000 ton their tobacco which they manufac tured and sold at a net profit 6f28 000000 Did thisj farmer tell you that tobacco takes more out ot land and more out of the man who cultivates it than any other crop that it takes the best of land to raise it at all and that It cannot be grown on the same land oftener than one year in six that the work in any other crop is childs play compared with the work in tobacco I60 I hope you did not believe that he was making excuses Per haps this farmer holds the views ot an antiequity of mime whosaysuThe tenants are getting enough money If Glandyears of anxious toll an American cit izen should be able to own the land he tills Let us aU get down our copies of Edward Bellamys LOoking Backward and read the introduction the finest prose allegory in the language since Pilgrims Progress Why should thousands of these tenant famIlies slave and stint in poor little houses skimp thin clothing eat coarse poqrj food toil every daylight hour and often into the in all winds and alfewand a country Home all equipped with everything that ingenuity can devise to give comfort and to gratify taste and then spend a good part of the year or all of it abroad 7 Why must the American farmer be content with a bare Americanlmanufactureri more the total sum of all the

contribution to the literaturedf the tobacco controver sy 1 oe extetsively circulated widely read and t can not fail to majke a profound impression In purity and finish of dictioii in lucidity carefulness and ac curacy of statement in succinctness of thought and in logical construction it is tp striking ontrast to the ill solved obscure lurid and almost reckless and unintel ligible message itis designed to answer The Gazette was one 6f the few papers of the ap1Jlause mblic It was distinctly disappointing from every joint of view It bore every evidence of hasty prepa ation It was the product of the zeal of a moment hat saw on1r one side of the contest raging in Ken dcky rather than the careful deliberate expression pi the judgment ofacam and oughtfel public ser ant The Gazette has believed from the first cursory Q cETtg of the message that it was not Governor1 Will t n at his best that it was the least creditable of all a public nttefincesthe circumstances considered A laaon County Farm rhasused the scalpel with sur assihg skill and if he has left the Governor a particle f political cuticle a powerful magnifying glass will be oquired to find it tI The Gazette believes this Writer has stated the case ith philosophical accuracy and that the criticisms of rie oveD9r are justified to tile utmost degree There r ray be however one unfair insinuation The Gazette Quid not

of his life to his education and association to his uabiLifcy because of these things to grasp the fundaV ental principles that lie at the basis of this contro Ic rsy rather than to his employment in

disastrous lawbreaking f an oppressive monopoly H6 has not yet shown any precia ion of the fact that the surest way to stop iolcnce is to remove the cause andhe has arous d Suspicion of the growers
