PRIDE OF SOUTH
Grizzled Veteran Tell*
Lloyd George Jackson Was
BY JAMES R. NOURSE,
Universal Service Correepondent
Fredericksburg, Va., Oct. 28.—The
pride of the south in her military
heroes was indelibly impressed upon
former Premier David Lloyd George
Sunday while on a visit to the battle
fields whereon the greatest battles of
the onfederacy were fought. For the
leader of Britain’s war forces learned
that were it not for the military
genius developed by the Civil war
there wrould have been no Foch to
lead the allied forces to victory in
the World war.
Lloyd George heard this from the
lips of a grizzled Veteran of the con
federate side while standing at the
site of Grant's headquarters in the
wilderness, 16 miles north of hero,
the scene of gruelling fighting in the
campaign before Richmond.

The veteran had been with the
south’s most distinguished cavalry
leader. Stonewall Jackson, and had
seen him shot and fall on the spot
now marked by a memorial monu
"You can say all you want to about
the great leaders in the World war,”
he said to Lloyd George, "but that
war 7vevrr developed any men equal
to Jackson or Lee.”
"Ah! but how about Foch” in
quired Lloyd George.
"There never would have been any
Foch if JacksQn and Lee had not
come flist," replied the veteran, the
look in hin eyes attesting his love for
those southern leaders.
"Belligerent to the last,” was Lloyd
George’s comment as he turned
away to rejoin in his party.
The former premier enjoyed his
visit to the southern battlefields.
Accompanied by Admiral Grayson,
a native Virginian, he went first to
the Salem Church battle field, then
through Chancellorsville to the
Stonewall Jackson monument, which
he inspected with great interest. The

sold and hired prior to the Civil war,
and the city hall, in which a recep

Lloyd George also learned that in
this city, rich in traditions of early
Americanism, the first resolution de
claring that America should be in
dependent of Great Britain, was
passed in 175, that John Paul Jones,
who first raised the Stars and Stripes
over the American navy, lived on

Faced By Institution
Mitchell, S. D., Oct. 26.—(Special.)—
Paul C. Keyes, appointed by the
United States comptroller of currency
as receiver for the First National
Bank of Mitchell, which was closed
last week by the federal bank exam
iner, has arrived in Mitchell to take
charge of the business of the bank.
Mr. Keyes is also receiver for the
First National bank of Eureka, S. D..
and the Corn Belt National bank of
Scotland, but his work at the First
National bank here will keep him in
Mitchell the greater part of the time.
"Re-organization of the bank is be

I cannot give any idea as to whether
or not the contemplated re-organiza

and liabilities of the Institution must
be cheeked over before any statement
can be made on this question- If the
bank is not re-organized the creditors
will be given an opportunity to file
their claims and they will receive
dividends on these claims as they are
liquidated. I cannot give any idea,
however, at this time how much the
creditors will be paid on the dollar.

OF “DRY” LAWS
Candidate for Democratic
Nomination Follows Lead
of Henry Ford
BY JAMES MARTIN MULLER
Universal Service Correspondent.
New York, Oct. 28.—William Gibbs
McAdoo, who is known to be actively
organizing his forces with a view to
securing the democratic nomination
for president. Sunday came out flat
footedly for prohibition enforcement.
His empathlc words on the pro
hibition question followed those of
Henry Ford, who said he would sup
port President Coolldge In the nxet
campaign if the president would en
force the prohibition laws. Ford’s in
terview was printed widely.
While Mr. AcAdoo did not say he
would use the military and naval
forces to enforce the law, as Mr.
Ford did, Mr. McAdoo did say he
would like to see every resource of
the government used to the utmost
to wipe out the disgrace of prohibi
tion violation. He Intimated that the
efforts so far made on the part of
the government showed inefficiency.
Comparing enforcement of the 15th
and 18th amendments, Mr. McAdoo
“I fear some people do not dis
criminate as regards the difference
between the two amendments. The
15th does not carry with it the con
current power clause, which, as
regards the 18th amendment, makes
It obligatory upon the states to adopt
legislation so the state government*
can co-operate with the federal gov
ernment in enforcing the Volstead
la Duty of States
"It is the duty of the states to see
that the prohibition law is enforced
Just as much as it is the duty of the
• federal government to do so.”
Mr. McAdoo was rerained many
federal and more state laws are “dead
letter.” for no attempt Is made to en
force them. He has told that millions
of dollars are bet on presidential
elections. Sabbath observance laws
are violated In many places and that
up. that many such laws should be
repealed. They are a great menace
to our country If they are not prac
there is betting on norse racing in
violation of the law.
Mr. McAdoo answered:
“Most of these laws were passed
years ago when they seemed to fit
the order of things more than they
do today. Ail laws, however, should
be enforced. I feel that tliere should
be a cleaning up of these laws which,
In this day, appear to b.e obsolete and
incapable of enforcement because
public sentiment is not back of them
as when these so-called 'bluelaws'
were adopted. I mean by a cleaning
ticable and are not enforced.
Should Enforce “Dry” Lav/.
"The prohibition law, however, Is
a very recent law. The people of this
generation adopted it. Fresumably
the people think it fits into the
scheme of things for the good of the
country. Therefore there is no rfaeon
why we should consider the liquor
prohibition law in the same class as
other prohibition laws.
"This law must be enforced as long
as It is embodied in the constitution
and it is just as incumbent on the
state governments to entorce It as
it is upon the federal government."
Mr. McAdoo told the following little
story regarding the 15th amendment
and the negro voter in the south:
"Negroes are required in .some
states, where fhey appear at the polls
to vote, to explain some clause in
the constitution as a test for their
fitness to vote. In Mississippi ‘Uncle
Mose’ appeared at the polling place.
He was asked: ’Uncle Mose, what is
the meaning of the clause In the
United States constitution which
says the right of habeas corpus shall
not be suspended?’ ‘Oh. that means
that a nigger can’t vote, I reckon,’
answered the old darkly. The answer
amused the election officials and
they let him vote.”
WHOLE FAMILIES ARE
WORKING IN FIELDS.
lanKton, s. u.. Oct. Z6.—(Special)
—The labor problem In Yankton
county, so far as corn picking Is con
cerned, Is being solved by the farmers
themselves. There la a dearth of help
for harvesting one of the biggest
crops the county has seen for years, In
spite of a wage of 8 and 9 cents per
bushel being offered.
But the farmers are solving the
difficulty by doing the picking them
aelves, aided by their families. Home
establishments are being closed tem
porarily. in scores of cases, and
everybody in the family except the
babes adjourns to the corn fields to
help. EJlther they do not care to pay
the high prevailing wage, or help was
impossible to get. Practically all corn
is ready to crib now, and farmers
are in the fields all over the county.
A local labor agency reports that It
is unable to supply enough men for
the demand in spite of the l lrb
wages offered, considered very higl'
since the corn is so good.
