Wake formal notice of candidacy Givens ajor Jackson will run on platform adopted by Republican party last year majored. Jackson of Lafayette formally announced his candidacy j or the Republican nomination for governor thursday afternoon of last week following a conference with some of his friends at the Columbia club at Indianapolis.

Quot i believe in exercising common honesty in the solving of All problems and in the performance of All duties required of a Public official in the administration of affairs of Tate i believe that All interests should be As fully represented As possible. In the selection of the tax Board and All other boards of the state where it is at All consistent to do so i would favor the appoint ment of a representative Farmer labourer and employer believing that Eising land prices United states department of agriculture warns Farmers of probable consequences if prices fall Jar umber 50 i t. Trail of the president by All interests being thus represented and having an equal part in the planning of affairs of state would bring such interests to a bet ler understanding and would secure j the prices of farming hands Lin Many sections of the United states especially in Iowa and the other Corn Belt states have risen with such rapidity that serious consequences May be expected especially with the return of Normal condition. This is a warning to Farmers issued by the United states department of agriculture. Speculators Many of them business men of the cities in Many cases have reaped big profits by buying and reselling without making any substantial contribution in return. Farmers have sold land at prices that seemed High and then have bought again at still higher figures losing thousands of dollars in the Exchange. The Bona fide Farmer who purchases land at present High prices May find the returns on his investment abnormally Small if earnings should decline when nor Mal conditions Are restored and May find himself seriously embarrassed if he has financed the Purchase largely on credit. That is a summary of the situation As it is viewed by investigators of the Bureau of farm management sent by the department into the re Gions of most marked speculative activity. Here is a summary of their advice which is broadly applicable probably to the majority of Farmers in the regions affected though it May not fit every mid visual Case. Much of the present speculative r toi Viuca i me present speculative Best result for the people at l u it i r a 11 activity has been due to the fact a t of i Nahla Finikin Rialls in _ Xii a. Large.

Quot i now live in the tenth District the same District As Warren t. Mccray who has formally announced his candidacy and in order that he or any of his friends May not think that i am undertaking in any Way to take advantage of the fact that i am a resident of the same District i desire to state to the voters of this District that if they think that or. Mccray would be a better Man to Lead the Republican forces in the next Campaign and should feel under obligation to vote for me for the reason Only that i live in the tenth District i a Ould gladly release any voter from that obligation and Appeal Only for the support of such voters of the District who for other reasons think i should be the major Jackson resigned in 1917 As Secretary of state to enter the second officers Cantonment at fort Benjamin Harrison from which he was commissioned a Captain. He was a major at the close of the War in charge of the training Camp at Purdue University. He entered the Law practice at Lafayette when he was mustered out of the army. Maj. Jackson formerly was judge of the Henry county circuit court at Newcastle and is Well known throughout Indiana. He says that he will speak in his own behalf in every county in the state. That speculators have been Able to catch some Farmers unawares buying their farms at a much lower in relation to prices in adjoining regions. Therefore you should be careful about Selling to a Speculator who is buying to sell again. If it is Worth More to him it probably May be Worth More to you. If you own a farm and desire to continue farming of very sure before Selling that Youj can obtain out of the proceeds of your Sale As Good a farm As you have sold. If you desire to Purchase a farm you should be very sure that the Price you pay is fully justified by the probable net earnings of the farm when conditions become More Normal. Be careful that the buyer of your farm is Able to Complete his payment on March first in Case he lairs to recall. In general it is sate to require an initial Cash payment or one third the Sale Price. Be cautious about speculating yourself. Especially do not buy on a narrow Cash margin with the expectation that you will be Able to sell and obtain the necessary Means of settling your contract. You May not be Able to effect a Sale. A land quot Boom quot May collapse suddenly.
