mineral deposits and undeveloped
wealth of all kinds that bounteous
nature can give? If it is, then un
doubtedly Marion county should bey
y the leading county in the state. Thirty j
years ago Marion county's assessed
valuation was over $8,000,000; today
it is less than that by several hundred
thousand dollars. Thirty years ago
Marion county had a population of
3o,000; today it has a population of j
38,000 a gain of only one thousand
every ten years. Twenty years ago
Polk county had an assessed valua valuation
tion valuation of $3,000,000; today her assessed
valuation is $19,000,000 a gain of
$10,000,000 in twenty years.
As we rode through Polk county in
the recent motorcade and saw what
had been wrought by the hand of man,ithei;e we no new developments In
we asked ourself the question that

tiy?" coun-tiy?" We begun to study the natural
assets of Polk county and we found
only phosphate, lakes, sandhills and
cjimate. And yet with all of Marion
county's natural wealth, Polk county
has an assessed valuation of morel
than two and a half times that of I Koanoke, va., JNov. Zi. bive corn corn-Marion,

Thirty years ago Marion county hadlhalted here Sunday night en route to
an assessed valuation of almost three
times that of Polk. Thirty years ago
Marion was third in point of assessed
valuation and population of all the
counties in the state; today she stands
eleventh. Why is that? A man would
be foolish to say that good roads are
altogether responsible for the great
strides in advancement that some
other counties have made and the lack
ot good roads is the sole reason why
Marion has stood still.
According to the government report
or 1917 the total valuation of farm
products and live stock in Marion
county had a grand total of pverj
$6,000,000. Today there are 1500' au automobiles
tomobiles automobiles in Marion county, whose
first cost would average $1000 each.
We see by this that in the last four or
five years the citizens of Marion coun county
ty county have invested $1,500,000 in auto automobiles
mobiles automobiles for pleasure or profit. The
strange part of this is that some of
the owners of these truck and cars are
now opposed to an investment of $1, $1,-500,000
500,000 $1,-500,000 in good roads on which to run
this $1,500,000 worth of cars and
It reminds me of a story I once
heard of a city man who moved to the
country. He and his wife agreed that
in order to be sure enough country
people they must keep a cow and at
once began an exhaustive study of the
care and feed of milch cows. They
called in the carpenter, plumber and
brickmason and had a $1500 cow cowhouse
house cowhouse built. After the house was built
at such a great cost, they decided that
they must economize on the purchase
of the cow. So they bought a scrub
cow to put in their $1500 cowhouse.
We have invested $1,500,000 in motor
cars and now we must economize on
good roads. As we said, good roads
is not the sole reason why some coun
ties have advanced and the lack of
good roads not the sole reason why
Marion has stood still. Is it then be
cause our schools are not so good as
in some other counties? Not alto
gether. Why then the reason. Simply
this: The lack of co-operation in the
people of Marion county. The greatest
arset of any county, state or country
is the spirit of co-opeartion, the spirit
of boosting, the spirit of getting to together
gether together and working for a common
purpose. We are now at the dividing
of the ways, the forks of the road. We
can either vote for bonds as an evi evidence
dence evidence of our faith in the future great greatness
ness greatness of our county and the first step
in our ultimate greatness, or we can
vote against bonds and die of dry rot.

Operators Stall, Miners Bully and
Government Officials Seem
Washington, Nov. 27. All agencies
of the government have failed so far
to solve the soft coal miners' wage
tangle and from the outlook today the
situation was as far from adjustment
as when the conference's began. More
conferences will be held today in an
effort to arrive at a solution.
A wage advance of 14 per cent for
all mine workers, maintenance of gov
ernment control over the cost prices,
'and no increase in prices at this time
were the conclusions of Fuel Adminis-
trator Garfield, announced last night
to the operators and miners wage
MINERS WON'T ACCEPT
The government plan for settling
the soft coal strike was laid before
miners and operators last night by
Fuel Administrator Garfield. John L.
Lewis, acting president of the United
Mine Workers of America, announced
that the miners would not accept.

gent expresses the views of a majority
4 a 1 At
oi tne taxpayers, u tney nave tne
right information on the subject. I
want to add a few words to what Mr.
Nugent has said. Should the county
be bonded at this time, with prices
running high, and in two or three
years prices go down to half what
they are at present and remain low,
those who have bought bonds will have
their holdings increased to double
what they were at the time they
bought them, because they can buy
twice as much meat, lard, corn, syrup,
sugar and other articles with the
money and it will be twice as hard for
the taxpayer to pay his taxes, for it
will take twice the amount of meat,
lord, corn, sugar and beef to get the
tax money, therefore I say vote
against bonding. As Mr. Nugent says,
"It will be too late to cuss, but cuss
or pray, you will pay the bonds."
Should the conditions I have spoken
of above come to pass, which will
likely happen in two or three years
from now, the real labor cost to the
taxpayers will run way over three
million dollars to say nothing of the
interest. I am a taxpayer of Marion
county and for the reasons above am
opposed to bonding. J. Y. Hicks.

to advance by about $1 per cwt. on
colored stock and $2 per cwt. on

to $7 per cwt, and the best state yel
lows moved at $5 and $5.25 per cwt.
Editor Star: The prices quoted
above are taken from a news dispatch

muda Bermuda onion seed planted now will
make onions ready to ship next May.
About 300 bushels is a good crop,
but 500 bushels per acre can be made.
The farmers of Lowell last Saturday
ordered their purchasing agent to get
enough seed to plant out about ten
acres; on one planting much over an
sere. Together they should ship
about six carloads. Onions next May
should sell for from $100 Oto $1200
per car f. o. b. shipping point. The
Lowell farmers are not going to glut
the market on onions. Farmers in
different localities should organize,
stick together and all pull at the front

There is one point in the matter of
taxation which has not been touched
upon. Hundreds of acres of land have
gone to the state for non-payment of
taxes and the state pays no taxes. If
bonds are issued, thousands of acres
of cut-over and other lands will revert
to the state. The amount of taxes on
forfeited lands would be placed on
pioperty holders and the deficit will
be made good "by a stroke of the
pen," which Mr. Clyatt refers to in

because it is a repetition of what
