a Catholic,' I dare say he would say
to me, 'They never told me anything
like that when I stood in line with
my gun, waiting to go over the top.' "
Speaking of the appeal made by or-
ganizers of the klan along lines of
what they call 100 per cent Amer-
icanism, he said:
'lln many places the appeal to
creed has brought into the organiza-
tion some excellent men who believe
that they are addressing themselves
to a real problem when they draw
lines of religious prejudice."

wnor Henry J. Allen of Kansas trip-
ped from one variety stage to anoth-
er. After h4s gallery play with the
Tollies o£ New York, he came down
here after the other state executives
had "shot their wad." Allen re-
garded Parker and Olcott and Mor-
rison as 'Baptists" who had "pre-
pared the way for one who is greater
to come." His trick was regarded as
press agent stuff by the other gover-
nors and consequently his effort fell

the Ku Klux Klan from the state by
force but will expel it by refusing
to permit it to do business within tho
"A writ being sought in the su-
preme court, would make disappear,
the blazing cross and the pasture
parties, where the men mask them-
selves and put on a fantastic cere-
mony in the open field and terrorize
an entire neighborhood.
"In Kansas we are seeking to ex-
pel the Klan from the state," Gover-
nor Allen said, "I note by the press
of the country that some misappre-
om }snt 0} sb sjsjxe uojsueq
mean by expelling the order, and the
thought has been expressed that it
is the intention of the state to drive
out the members of the Klan.
"This is not at all what the action
before the supreme court preposes.
Under the law of Kansas, every or-
ganization doing business within the
state must be chartered. The Ku
Klux Klan has a charter under the
laws of Georgia, and the action now
pending in the supreme court of the
state is for the purpose of securing
a writ forbidding the klan to do
business hereafter in Kansas.
"The essence of our opposition to
this organization is not in the fact
it fights the Catholic Church, or ex-
presses its antipathy to the Jew or
to the negro, but in the fact that it
does this under the protection of a
mask and through the process of ter-
lorism and violence.
"It is incredible that this country
should have passed through its bap-
tism of heroic devotion which called
into action fouj years ago, only
to sag back now into this most la-
mentable species of disorders.
"Much human life has been sacri-
ficed to the cause of Christian civil-

theT~esting place of James Fitzsim-

first member of the American Expe-
ditionary Forces to give his life in
the combat of Toul. If I had the
power to reincarnate him, I could
say 'James Fitzsimmons, you think
you are a one hundred per cent
American,' and I imagine he would
look at me with some surprise and
?ay 'I never thought much about that
I was born in America and when they
told me this war was for the defense

didn't wait for the selective draft, I
hurried on to offer my life for the

August and September, 1922, were
respectively, 17 and 18 months subse-
quent to the inauguration of Pres-
ident Harding and the beginning of
the Sixty-seventh Congress, which
the Republicans have controlled in
both branches by a considerable ma-
jority. Both the Republican Presi-
dent and the Republican Congress
came into power with a distinct
pledge that they would restore the

whole country to a condition of "nor-

Atlanta, Ga.—The imperial klon-

today. A new constitution with a
clause prohibiting the Klan affiliat-
ing with any women's organization

and religious lines, blamed our entry
into the war on Britich misrepresen-

ute to William Randolph Hearst.
The speech was tinder the spon-
sorship of Mayor William Hale
Thompson, with whom he conferred
at French Lick, Ind., recently over
the political outlook for 1924.
A small group of "excessively
wealthy individuals" control both the
major political parties, he told the
realtors, and, through the exercise of
"powerful, sinster and too often law-
ful influences, have become the vir-
tual dictators of the destinies of more
than 110,000,000 people."

Washington, Dec. 27—Advances in-
the prices of agricultural products
will be greatly exceeded by the in-
creases in the cost of living anions
agricultural producers under the op-
eration of the Fordney-McCumber
tariff act, which puts a higher tax on
all the commodities the farmer con-
sumes without giving him a corre-
sponding return for what he sells.
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace,
in his annual report for 1922, testi-
fies to the disproportion between the
prices the farmer has been compelled
to pay and the prices he receives for
hie grain, live stock, fruits and other
products. This report shows that the
farmers of the country have been in
the greatest distress, with the cost of
living and the burden of taxation
growing while their incomes have
"While the prices of many import-
ant farm products have advanced
considerably over last year, this ad-
vance has been accompanied by the
large or larger advances in the price
of other commodities," says Secre-
tary Wallace. "For example, the in-
ably worse than it was when the Re-
publican promises to the farmer wera
given and the opportunity to make
good was first presented to the Re-
If the disparity between the prices
the farmer receives for what he ha3
to sell and the prices of the commo-
dities he must consume was so ob-
vious and so ruinous before the Ford-
ney-McCumber profiteers' tariff law
became operative, what will it be a
year hence when the act has come
to full fruition in a larger cost of
living? For the profiteers' tariff wa3
first designed to benefit the farmer
and won't improve his situation in
the least. It imposed duties on grain
ana cattle and a few other agricul
tui al products, but of these there are
surpluses for which the producer
must find markets abroad and
prices which are fixed not by an Am
trican tariff law but by the inexor
able law of supply and demand. "The
condition of our agriculture would
seem to justify a thorough study of
the international situation as it bears
upon the outlet for the products of
our farms," says Secretary Wallace
That is true, but the present Re
publican administration seems utter
ly indifferent to "the internationa
situation" whether in respect to its
relation with agriculture or any oth
