LETTISH FORCES AT I URLAUB CAPITAL ST. LOUIS, Nov., 21.—The creation    of an industrial adjustment commission in each state with a national body as a court of appeals I ment replying    to    the    republican j    was    urged before the American leader,    Lodge,    said    the    peace issue j    Mining Congress here tonight by should    be settled    in    the coming    Allen    Walker of the Guaranty Trust Company, New York, in advocating a year’s armistice between capital and labor. Each state commission would consist of one representative each of labor, capital and the state, with two representing the public. The commissions would have power to standardize wages and ensuing adjustments. During the proposed armistice there should be no lockouts or strikes, and capital and labor would be pledged in advance to abide by Jthe ruling of the National Commission. Union methods have drifted from an honest effort at collective bargaining to an organized labor autocracy that has placed a premium on inefficiency, asserted Harry R. Taylor, president of the National Coal Association, in an address read to the congress. The organized miners’ strike is an attempt to force a huge tribute from the American straining the district attorney and the collector from interferring in By eliminating the middleman.; Collector Moore stated that he would miners are enabled to buy groceries\ begin issuing revenue stamps for and other supplies at wholesale ^jn(j 0f ^eer immediately. prices, it is said.

Why should poor drunken Indians and dopy negroes be taken into police court and fined and let those who are clothed with high official authority get down in the alleys, debauch the name of Pontotoc county, bring our respectable citizenship into ridicule among the people of adjoining counties, rape the goddess of justice, and do other things that are scandalous and reproachful to civilization, go unfined, unjailed and honored as though high respectability had been maintained? Why should the negro choc makers be molested and the drug-store-bootlegger be allowed to go on in his damnable, home-breaking, man-killing, society-debasing business of peddling the rottenest rot-gut that ever went down a man’s throat? • Why do we fine a man for going out in the fields and shooting quails a few days ahead of the “open season” and at the same time allow a bunch of roughnecks to come in to town, tank up on a few bottles of the Old Roman’s favorite brand of “Jake” and ride out of town through the residence districts shooting their guns and raising hell generally? Why do we allow venders to do business under the guise of a respectable vocation when, if we had a few of what used to be termed “decent” saloons, their places of business would not be considered even by the negroes as a fit hanging-out place? Women of Ada, the men have miserably failed. Have you got the nerve to do it?

Marvin Brown, Ada, Okla.: Dear Sir: I thank you for your very splendid telegram of yesterday. It is needless to say that I appreciate more than words can tell the very generous references made to myself and assure you that, with the assistance of such men as you, the duties of this office will be very considerably lightened. Respectfully, J. B. A. ROBERTSON, Governor. In spite of the continued rains of October more cotton had been ginned in Pontotoc county prior to November 1st than had been ginned at the same date in 1918. According to the report of A. W. McKeel, special agent for this county, 1177S bales had been ginned the first of the present month. For the same period last year only 10,558 bales had been ginned, nl both reports round bales wer© counted as half bales.    *    * According to the best estimates, nearly one-half of this year’s cotton is still in the fields. The difference in the production added to th 3 substantial difference in the pric \ means great things for th© cottc producers of Pontotoc county—I' the weather will only permit ti. * crop to be gathered.
