made many sales possible to dealers who have agencies for high priced, large cars, but
who do not niklce anything tinder $900 or $1,000. , From the first day our demonstrators

"At the same time several men from

New Madrid, Mo.
NEW MADRID, Mo., Feb. S0.-A the
result of the warnings of "night riders'
that they must leave tha district before
Tuesday morning, nearly X) negroes left
New Madrid county last night and this
morning. Possibly as many more ara pre
paring to depart before the time limit
aspires. Thus far thera has been no ylo
lence. Tha negroes, most of whom are
employed on farms In this county, will
be severely dealt with unless they obey,
the order announces, and It la expected
that much trouble will result. Tha sheriff,
M. J. Kimes haa asked Governor Major
t? send mllltla to help him restore order.
The order for the negroes to leave was
not based on any specific objectionable
act. It la said, but on lll-frnllng n tha
part of some whites who believed negroes
wera doing work tha whites should have.
The trouble between the whites and the
negroes seems to hara Its orlgvn In the
land rental system.
Last December tha white renters de
manded a reduction from M to tc en acre.
The noames were content to continue
paying $1, and when new rent contracts
were drawn up In January mora negroes
than ever were given places on tha
farms. rlscontent among the poor whites
then developed. The mora prosperous
whites have condemned the raid.
