Lakeland Morning Star: Referring

October 19th and comparing it with
editorial .of the Palm Beach Post re reproduced
produced reproduced on same page and date as
the editorial of the Tribune.
The Tribune editorial referred to
bore the title. "Let It Come."-
I am inclined to believe that this
was a canned editorial written by De De-Frees
Frees De-Frees of the United States Chamber
of Commerce. In the second para paragraph
graph paragraph of the Tribune editorial there
were two questions asked; "Settled in
what way?"' and "For how long?" In
the third paragraph the assertion was
made the strike is for two things things-defeat
defeat things-defeat of federal interference of union
programs and dfter the complete tam taming
ing taming of the government, putting the
roads under federal control with
unionized federal directors. My re reply
ply reply to this is: It is a gross misrepre misrepresentation

first question asked, for how long, is
this: Just so long as the wage earn earners

railroad companies and the press of
thai country ceases agitation with
the paid by the railroad propaganda.
My.,VePJy Jto the second question, in
what way? In the same way that the
Southern railroad and Henry Ford's
railroad, by settling with their men
on a fair and equal basis.
The wage board in making its
award and increases to the railroad
employes in 1920 did so on the fol following
lowing following basis:
In arriving at its decision the board
has taken into consideration:
1. The scale of wages paid for
similar kinds of work in other indus industries.,

2. The relation between wages
and cost of living.
3. The hazards of employment.

fix such wages as will provide a de decent

When the at5ove was given to the
press of the country there was no
protest from the public until the rail railroad
road railroad companies went to advertising
and laying the foundation to offset
this increase and lay aside the labor
board's award.
All that the wage earners ask is to
be given just, what the labor board
said wages that will provide a de decent

Chattanooga, Oct. 26. A memorial

ist. capitalist. Not preaching and publishing
what they honestly think and believe,
but what they are paid for? We rail railroad
road railroad men are law abiding and I will
prove it. Have we broken or disobey
ed any law when we use the only
weapon that we have the strike?
Who first violated and defied the
United States labor board? Was it
the wage earners? Emphatically no.
You only have to. go back a few
months to see where the A., B. & A.
and the M. & N. A. defied and set
aside the board's ruling. Did the press
censure these roads for their viola violations?
tions? violations? They 'did not. With few ex exceptions
ceptions exceptions they were praised for their
unfair actions. The press likes to
harp on the war time wage. Along
this line I wish to say, there is no
war time wage in effect. The employes
were given a slight increase in wages
in 1917, the first they had received
since 1913. Then very nearly two
years after the end of the war they
were given an increase by the labor
board. This was in July, 1920, retro retroactive
active retroactive to May 1st, .1920, and amounted
to an increase of $1 per day.
In 1917 W. G. McAdoo appealed to
the patriotism of the railroad work workers
ers workers to lay aside their differences and
grievances and put forth every effort
to win the war and we responded to
a man. We did this while all other
classes of labor were given increases.
We were not slackers. When the
unions were called on for ten locomo locomotive
tive locomotive engineers to man tanks, saying
they wanted men who were ready to
almost commit suicide, instead of the
ten asked for, there was a response
from over four hundred experienced
locomotive engineers. When the con conductors
ductors conductors were asked to furnish men ex experienced
perienced experienced in yard and road service for
immediate duty in France, ten men
were asked for and hundred respond responded,
ed, responded, and I was one among many. We
have men right here, engineers, con conductors
ductors conductors and trainmen who served on
the front lines in France.
The men as a whole do not want a
strike, but realize that we have a
fight on hand now that means life or
death, freedom or slavery for us and
our wives, children and homes. There
are less than one per cent of the rail railroad
road railroad workers prepared to exist be beyond
yond beyond a few days without their daily
wage, but we will make a fight for
what the labor board based their
awards on in the 1920 increase wage
to provide a decent living and an op opportunity

If we had the funds to outline our po position

there are people at the express office

Two counties in southeast Alabama
have been shipping early sweets for
several years. Marion county has as
good or better sweet potato land as
either of these sections, apd we can
beat any of them to the market.
But if we can't, L. M. Rhodes, state
market commissioner, says that the
normal sweet potato consumption of
New York city is one hundred car
loads a week, and this looks as if we
could find room to dispose of many
an acre's product. Then there" are
Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia,
Boston, Pittsburg, Cleveland, De Detroit,'

large cities?
Raising them early enough will re
quire special plant beds, special pre
paration, fertilization and cultivation,
special care in digging, grading and
packing. But if we figure all this up
the crop would not be as expensive
as some of the other truck crops
raised in Marion. One of our most
prominent tomato growers recently
stated that he could make as much on
sweet potatoes as on tomatoes if he

The seed potatoes would have to be
bought in Virginia, where this potato
has been Taised for market for years,
and where they have developed its

"Peter, Dear Don't feel too badly If
I find a stupid way out. I've been
thinking for several days about It.
You've done so much for me, and after
you, of course, there's no one but
Cherry. She could be free now, he
couldn't prevent it. When I saw your

couldn't fight it. Remember, this is

It was unsigned.
Peter sat staring at it for a while
without moving, without the stir of a
changing expression on his face. Then
he folded It up, and put It in the pock pocket
et pocket f his coat, and went out to the
back yard, where Kow was feeding the
chickens. The wet, dark day was end ending
ing ending brilliantly in a 'wash of red sun sunset
set sunset light that sent long shadows from
the young fruit trees, and touched
every twig with a dull glow.
"Kow," Peter said, after aq effort
to speak that was unsuccessful. The
Chinese boy looked at him solicitous solicitously;
ly; solicitously; for. Peter's face was ashen, and
about his mouth were drawn lines.
"Kow," he said, ;T go now 1'
"Go now other house?" Kow nodded,
glancing toward the valley.
But Peter jerked his head instead
toward the bare ridge.
"No, I go now not come back !" he
said, briefly. "Tonight maybe Bo Bo-linas
linas Bo-linas tomorrow, Inverness. I don't
know. By and by the big mountains,
Kow by and by I forget !"
Tears glittered in the Chinese boy's
eyes, but he smiled with a great air
of cheer.

The dog came fawning and spring springing

"Come on Buck! We're going now!"
He opened the farmyard gate where
her hand had so often, rested, crossed
the muddy, corral, opened another
gate, and struck off across the darken darkening

sunlight lingered on crest and tree-top,
tangled itself redly in the uppermost
branches of a few tall redwoods, and
was gone. Twilight a long twilight
that had in it some hint of spring fay

loomed high In the clear shadow.
Gaining the top of the first ridge, he

built almost fifteen years ago. lie re remembered

sent him plants, roses, and fruit trees,
and she had told him one day that he

an old friend of hers, a Doctor Strick Strickland,

He remembered sauntering up the

and quite unself-conscious,

being pushed with some violence at her

"She's a sneak and a skunk!" Alix
had frankly contributed. Cherry, now
quietly established in her father's lap,
had smiled with mischievous enjoy enjoyment

had paid this extraordinary remark the
slightest attention. He remembered
that he had fancied only the smallest
of these children, and had been glad
when they all went out of the room.
Looking down' at the cabin, the
years slipped past him like a flying
film, and It was the present again, and
Alix Alix was gone.
He roused himself, spoke to the dog,
and they went on their way again.
Mud squelched beneath Peter's boots
in the roadway; the dog sprang light lightly

But when they left the road, and cut
straight across the rise of the hillside,
the ground was firmer, and the two fig figures

showed them, silhouetted against the
sky above Allx's beloved Tamalpais,

a dull luster In the starlight.
