The commission believes that Thi combination of the Mccormick ant Deering plants under the International Harvester company is wha primarily makes the monopoly pos Sihle and recommends the separa lot of these two Greal industries. It finds that the Large increase in the Price and profits of manufacturers in 1911 and 1918 was due in part to Price understandings and agreements among manufacturers and that to a Mon limited extent the increase in the profits of dealers seems to have Beer due to similar activities. It finds that nearly ail important manufacturers Are members of the National implement and vehicle association with 13 departments representing different lines.

Homeless by 1922 and footless by 1924 seems to be the goal which the politicians offer the working people of our cities. A a a solid South threatened our next congressional session must take up the matter of reapportionment of congressional districts and representative Isaac Siegel of new York. Who is chairman of the reapportionment committee declares he is going to press the Issue of reducing the representation where the constitutional right to vote is denied. Bused on the census it 1910 the. Present congressional District is made up As nearly As practicable of 211,877 people. Our growth since As shown by the 1920 census makes it necessary to enlarge the districts or to reduce the number of congressmen. In reference to Siegel s Promise one naturally thinks of the negro of the South and of Republican desire to break up the so called solid South. These things Are talked about so much that the disfranchisement of the service of the United press and the Federated pics. The first three issues carried no advertising hut it the condition of Europe Asia and America today is the greatest condemnation of the so called peace treaty enacted at Versailles Conse intends to accept such advertising queenly it is for the workers meeting together As the International to determine their own Fate.

And he contends that the Hanks should w immensely greater Benefit to the country finace the Farmer to hold the Grain until the actual Liers of the Grain demand it and offer it living Price for it. Force livestock sales Quamme says although or. Cathro does not mention the recent order of the ninth Federal Reserve Hank his statement is manifestly a Challenge of the Reserve Bank a order. The National Bank of Minneapolis interpreted the Reserve Bank s order As meaning that the Hanks will hate i first Call on the Farmers Money a so j that we in turn will he Able to further help the movement of farm products to the markets by Loans to i All Grain i l.

A it appears that the Conception that most hankers in the big financial centers hold of the problem of the crop movements Dia s not reach Down to the Farmer at att. In fact the policy adopted by the Federal Reserve Board and approved by leading bonkers and financial interests apparently Aims to deprive Farmers of credit on in old Grain the purpose being to compel them to it sell and pay up the Loans they made at the begin Ning of the planting sea on so As to release the Money for use in clop moving from the local elevators Onward. The fact that the Farmers have Licen denied this credit has Lieen repeatedly cited As evidence of the i Success of that policy.

Cathro Quot instead of out should receive first policy lives dealer the Adi anlage or. Cathro makes the grave charge that the present policy of the Reserve Banks and of the Large City Banks a seems to be to compel the Grain to volume thereby depressing the Ca Market thus giving the terminal dec Vator companies an Opportunity to crop movement As though that event polls As the constr to in South Carolina and what advances had been made recently and asking for oth a members recent Price advances Quot complaints of Price cutting the complaints frequently show that the Mississippi Only one in thirty vote.

Cast Only 153,990 votes in 1916, whereas Minnesota a state of about the same population cast 387.364 Price cutting member was held As not keeping Faith in maintaining the prices agreed the commission finds that the net profit of 85 farm machinery manufacturers was 105 per cent larger than in 1916. And that the net profits of Over 200 jobbing firms in this line increased 97 per cent Between 1915 and 1918. The chief value of the report will probably be in educating More of the Public to realizing that there is a Harvester Trust although most Farmers have been aware of the fact for several years. The remedy proposed namely unscrambling the scrambling Mccormick and Deering companies certainly can not be expected to produce any better results than the in a crumbling of the Standard Oil monopoly or the tobacco monopoly. War makers bu8v Poland is not taking the Wilson Colby not to Italy with respect to maintaining Russia s territorial integrity seriously and Secretary of state Colby has been assuring the press correspondents of Quot having Hope that Poland will abandon imperialist policies perhaps the poles can not reconcile the policy of destroying the russian government announced through the italian ambassador and this other of preserving russian integrity whatever May have been communicated abroad by code even this published note is considered As a demand for new War it has Given the great horde of editors and publicists the material for a a preparing the mind of the War for democracy is Over and the democracy forgotten we Are now pre paring for Quot the War for civilization a because America is Best Able to sound the expense. Those who think that the Public is too disillusioned on War should renumber that the War makers have Learned a lot shout publicity Aud have acquired Powers above the Constitution As Well As great wealth. Doctor Frank Crane minister and feature writer voiced the attitude which Pussy footing liberals Are going to take when he said the other Day in regard to the russian government a a sooner or later unless it Falls to pieces from its own rottenness it my amp to be faced and fought by the civilized nation.

Detroit mich., has 61,000 More families now than three years ago but in that time Only 28,196 houses have been built and Many of the old have worn out. Philadelphia our third largest City la probably fortunate in having Only 30,000 families without a roof Over their Heads. Probably not one City in the United states can accommodate its people As Well As it did four years ago. And at that time our wide awake citizens were alarmed about the growth of so called slum conditions in our Large centers of population. How do they live families that used to have three or four rooms Are crowding into one room others put up tar paper shanties on the outskirts of town others Carne out in this disfranchisement of Whites by educational taxes poll taxes etc., explains Why the solid South is so completely reactionary. Perhaps it explains Why Burleson is a Power in the South and Why the Constitution has been trampled on in the past four years. We done to have to look As far Sway As Russia for minority Rule with a vengeance. A a a Italy so revolution Quot when asked for information on the reported Leisure of factories by worker in Northern Italy the italian ambassador. Baron Avezzano said Quot in consequence of a shortage of raw materials Lack of Coal and High oat of labor the metallurgical industries decided to effect a lockout following this decision the workers seized he factories at Milan Turin and be Boa in order to prevent the lockout my to operate the factories he also added that it was developing without resort to violence and without bloodshed evidently a new kind of strike strike to keep Industry going. Like or own government in the Case of the Woolen Trust the steel Trust the shoe Trust Etc the italian govern ment did nothing to keep manufacture suing and great masses of people from starvation. But unlike ours the italian government has not dared As yet to enforce Plant idleness with military Power. A a a greatest labor Dav labor Day was celebrated through jut the country As never before in history. Huge parades marched in All the Large Northern cities. Labor appeared to be anxious to outdo All past occasions As an answer to the nationwide drive against labor organization under the Guise of the Quot open shop Campaign incidentally it was a great Jay for the politicians to air their views on labor in the abstract and to View with alarm the scaly headed vulture of monopoly whom they talk and act for the rest of the year. But the labor Day just closed was marked by a More militant spirit in labor us Well As by its size. Ment which a culminated to establishment of the Oklahoma Leader. Many other enthusiastic workers Oon became imbued with the lame Spirtt. About to per cent of the Money came from the Farmer and workers of Oklahoma. The United mine workers of District 21 Oklahoma Ark an As and Texa-1 alone contributed $10,000. The Kansas miners gave an equal amount.
