New York. Sept. 19. Urbain Le
doux announced abandonment of his
plan to hold a "slave auction" of
the unemployed tonight after police
had dispersed a crowd of his follow
ers In Bryant park and prevented
him from distributing food to the
Jobless. He said his auction would
not be necessary because the "high
handed interference of the police will
cause the wrath of public opinion
to make right the present situation
n New York."
He appeared first at Cooper square
with a wagon load of buns for hun

move on. He returned the buns to

Walking to Bryant park he was
greeted by scores of men, who ac
companied him to a hall which he
had rented. Police barred the way
and told him to move along. A
crowd of more than 5.000 persons
soon gathered. Many were unem
Mounted police and patrolmen dis
persed the crowd. There was some
resistance, but Ledoux was hustled
away and the streets cleared.
Iedoux announced in advance that
if police interfered the only weapon
used in defense would be a song by
a former service man "The world is
dying for a little bit of love."
Besides Mr. Ledoux, another vol
unteer worker who has attracted no
tice by his attention to problems of
tbe unemployed is Edwin Brown of
Denver, a brother of William C.
Brown, formerly president of the
New York Central railroad. He de
scribed today his observations on u

night in his eld clothes. He is sixty-
five years old and says he has stu

cities in recent years. He saw hun
dreds of men- sleeping in parks and
oven on pavements and keeping
themselves warm with newspapers
and doing their laundry in the morn
ing at public fountains.
Police reserves were forced to
their clubs to dispose a crowd of
curious men and women who gath

public library tonight, expecting to
see Urbain Ledoux hold an auction

SECURES A MAN
Two Gun Man Has Nothing on Man
Picked up at Union, who has
Small Arsenal on Him
Yesterday afternoon Constable
Wilson at Union noticed a suspici
ous appearing stranger loafing
around and accordingly gave him a
shake down and with the result that
the .stranger developed enough ar
tillery to equip a small sized Mexi
can revolution. Two small calibre
revolvers as well as a rifle and shot
gun were found on the man and al
so a horse blanket and two over
coats and tlie last named articles
were identified as belonging to Dean
Austin, residing east of Union. The
man claimed that he had come into
possession of the blanket and over
coats through purchasing them of
another party for $1 and had also
acquired the guns through the lines
of trade. Sheriff Quinton coming
thru Union about the time of the
arrest was given the custody of the
man who was brought to Platts
mouth and lodged in the Jail here.
What disposition will be made of the
man has not yet been decided upon
as ho has seemingly not committed
any serious offense as can be proven.
HAED LUCK STORY
Speaking about hard luck stories
in regard to baseball playing, one
of the hardest was related a few
days ago and covered an account of
the fast Weeping Water team which
has made uch a pleasing record
this season and which was one of
the contenders for first place at the
state tournament. Our friend states
that at the game between Weeping
Water and Wilber. it seemed as tho
the elements conspired against the
Cass county town, as he states every
time the Wilbur team came to bat
the wind seemed to blow from the
home plate to the field and the hits
of the Wilbur players would be
wafter far from the mits of the
Weeping Water team, while with
Jake Meier's colts it was Just oppos
ite and 'the Weeping Water batters
had to hit against the wind and nee,
tieir Ions crives snagged by their
apponents. This is certainly a. real
hard luck story.
AGAINST THE U, S,
Director of Department of Informa
tion Writes from Chicago in
Reply to Murtey Letter.
Chicago, Sept. 15.
A subscriber of the Plattsmouth
Journal has forwarded a clipping
from a recent issue of your paper,
being a letter from a Mr. John Mur
toy, of Alvo, Nebraska, dated August
15, which was printed in your paper
under the heading, "Writes on Farm
ers' Financial Matters."
I, of course, do not know Mr. Mur
tey's connections, business or other
interest in the farmers' problems,
but it is quite evident from his letter
that he is not in touch with the co
operative marketing movement.
The opening paragraph of Mr.
Murtey's letter points out that the
attorney general of Indiana will not
permit the rale of preferred stock of
the Farmers Finance Corporation,
the financing subsidiary of the U. S.
Grain Growers, Inc., to be sold in
that state. If Mr. Murtey was fa
miliar with all of the facts and
wished to be fair he would explain
further that the reason why the
Farmers' Finance Corporation was
not admitted, is because of a statute
on their books that does not allow a
domestic or foreign corporation to be
chartered in the state which has more
than twice as much preferred stock
over common stock. It is true that
the Fawners' Finance Corporation
provides for 100.000 shares of pre
ferred stock as against 21 shares of
common stock. That arrangement
was made in order that the company
could never under any circumstances
be controlled by anyone except the
prain growers co-operative organiza
tion. The only ones who could con
sider it a fault would be those finan
ciers who might gradually wish to
acquire a control through buying
Mocks of preferred stock' with a vot
ing privilege. The fact that the 21
share? which always remain in the
hands of the farmers are the only
cr.es which have a voting power is a
irtue rather than a fault in the
opinion of any one who has the in
terests of farmers at heart.
Mr. Murtey gees on to say "that
it has been admitted by the officers
of the U. S. Grain Growers Corpora
tion that the fellow who was report
eJ to be mixed up with Boiling in
getting advance information on the
President"? message in war time to
work the New York stock exchange,
ii their chief advisor." The "fellow"
referred to is Bernard M. Baruch, one
of the ablest financiers of the United
Stn.tes. who has consented to act in
pn advisory capacity to the U. S.
Grain Growers, in their plans for
I challenge Mr. Murtey, however,
to present one iota of evidence to
support the libelous charge against
Mr. Haruch. That rumor was current
Jan prior to the time that the offi
cers of the U. S. Grain Growers were
tasting about to find a big financial
nan who would be willing to give
his time and advice in solving farm
ers' credit problems. These insinuat
ing charges were even carried into
Congress and Mr. Baruch not only
denied the charge but insisted that
a Congressional committee should be
appointed to investigate him, declar
ing that if he were guilty of such a
violation of trust he should be shot,
and if he were not that he should
l e exonerated of charges. The result
was that the small minds who had
been making these insidious charges
cgainst Mr. Baruch were immediate
ly silenced. Mr. Baruch, it should
be remembered, insisted upon being
investigated but his accusers did not
choose to face the light of an in
vestigation. Apparently Mr. Murtey has more
conclusive evidence than the other
accusers, for he is quite free in re
ferring to Mr. Baruch as "a Wall
street gambler." I hold no brief for
Mr. Baruch. except to defend his con
nection with the U. S. Grain Grow
ers organization, for it is truly an
element of strength inasmuch as he
is known to be and proven to have
r sincerely straightforward interest
in the problem of agricultural credit.
I shall forward the clipping from this
isue to Mr. Baruch, however, and let
him take such action as he may wish
with regard to the charge that he is
a Wall street gambler. If the farmer

neuevea lor one moment, that mat
charge could be substantiated, you
may be sure that Mr. Baruch would
have no connection with this com
Mr. Murtey takes particular issue
with Governor McKelvie of Nebras
ka for his endorsement of the U. S.
Grain Growers, Inc., end also with
President J. R. Howard of the Amer
ican Farm Bureau Federation for
hi3 .ndorsement. For the informa
tion of your readers,, it should also
be stated that Dr. Henry Jackson
Waters, editor of the Kansas City
Star; Dr. K. F. Ladd, United States
senator from North Dakota; Peter
Nortck, United States seuator from
South Dakota; Arthur Capper, Unit

Wm. Jardine, president of the Kan

many others of equal or greater posi
tions in the agricultural world have
endorsed this co-operative movement
as sound,-businesslike and reliable.
In order that there may be no mis-
impression, it should also be stated
that the directors of the U. S. Grain
Growers, Inc., are without exception
farmers. Many of them are produc
ing crops on their own farms by their
own labor this year. I do not know

H. II. Heneger, who was one of
the fortunate winners in the recent
Wyoming land drawings, returned

close friend, Mrs. C. E. Sporer, who
has been one of the active mission-,

ed a serious breakdown in liealth.
Dr. G. Harter, a Vienna expert, in
a recent article on appendicitis or in
fiamation of that part of the intes
tine which is known as "the appen
dix," says: "Though not a new dis
ease, there can be no doubt that it is
far commoner than -it used to be. The
explanation may be found in the fact
that the modern life causes weak
nesses of .the intestines and especial
ly the city life aids the irregular
movement of the bowels. Therefore,
he who wants to avoid this disease
must take care of a reasonable diet
and a regular movement of the bow
els." Triner's Bitter Wine is the
best remedy to keep the bowels regu
lar and the stomach in good condi
tion. If you want to be always in
good health, keep it at hand. Mr.
Charles Cerny, of Vine street, Mil
waukee, Wis., wrote us on August
14. 1921: "I am 65 years old, but
everybody wonders how well I look
at this age. And I say always: Take
Triner's Bitter Wine as I do, and you
will not wonder." Your druggist or
dealer in -medicines is now well sup
plied with Triner's remedies.
