TALKS OFSELF HELP
Sir Horace Plunkett Describe! Re'
suits Attained by Hundred
Thousand Irish Farmers.
STATE AID OF LAJTD PURCHASE
CHICAGO, Not. SO. Declaring
that America should launch a citizen
chip movement for the organization
among farmers of self-help, the Right
Honorable Sir Horace Plunkett, K.
C. V. O., of Dublin, Ireland, tonight
addressed tha opening session of the
Third National Conference of Mar
keting mnd Farm Credits, speaking
to delegates from forty states.
ITe speaker came arross the rsn to
address It as the first of a writ of talks
a.n-1 conferences that he will hold
throughout the United Ptatss, with the
end In view of organising American 'agri
culture. He was tha first . minister of
agriculture of Ireland . and railed the
'father of the Irish co-operative move
ment." wMh has under Its wlnga IOT.,000
Irish farmers organised Into I.ffio co-operative
Weak Spot ' Raral Kronomlra.
He descilbed the w?ak spot in Ameri
can rural tconomlca as being a lark of
tusineea organisation among farmers. He
delt upon the rhaotti conditions that
, accompany the marketing of farmers'
I'loducts and the purchasing of farmers'
supplies. He showed how the cities of
An erica and other nations have been de
veioped at tha expense of the country
trie. He declared the time la ripe for
sll public spirited persons to Interest
themselves In the fundamental develop
ment of agriculture.
'They muat get together." he said.
'They must eliminate waste or America
ill fall behind more competent nations."
"Allow me to utter -the warning which
will have to be faced in the United States
and Canada, aa well as In the United
Kingdom, In France, In Germany and In
other countries," he continued. "This re
lates to the very vital problem of co-
per alive finance, both what Is called
long term' or 'real credit,' and "short
term' or 'personal credit.' Finance Is,
Indeed, a vital part of the co-operative
"There la nothing more vital for the
ro-operatlve movement than that It
should clearly sound also a note of self
help. Looking not only to the future of
. merlra, but ai the " movement In the
old world today, thus I see stirs the
depths of my feelings, ' that while the
t-inte must give its aid to tha co-operative
movement, It must aeek to obtain for It
the greatest possible freedom."

Iiialory of -the world was consummated
by the British government buying out the
Irish landlords and reselling the property

raid, "!); tjiej. Immediate hope of the
American farm tenant, for by that means
only ran w hope for a quick action to )
stem the growing fide of landlordism." -
rietretary Hotman credited state-aided j
Und purchase in Ireland with these ben
efits: ' ,
. The Industry of occupiers has Increased;
farm houses and (arm outbuildings have
Improved; the tendency to sell) Interests
In laud has depressed; the tendency to ne or two had eyes blown out and sev
sublet and ' divide holdings hss become ! r lost an arm or leg. Physicians
almost dormant; the solvency of the oc
cupiers hss Improved; there Is a feeling
cf contentment, a prevalence of law and
order .that did not exist under landlord
and tenant relations.
Tenaaey aa the laereaae.
"What a contrast this affords against
the Amerirsn movement toward tensncy,';
the speaker said. "In Illinois, Iowa, Han
ts i, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania
tenant farmers have Increased by 121.187,
Vhlle the number of boms owning farm
ers has actually decreased by J 915. But
In Texss and Oklahoma we find about
tm- saddest dlalllualonmrnt of American
hopes for home ownership. Forty years
aso Texss had 5,M tenant families.
That number comprised I7.S per cent of
aU tha farms in the state. In uie the
truant farmers had Increased to 219.571,
which made S) per cent of all the farms
In the state,..
"In Oklahoma M.I per cent ofths state
Is In the hands of tenant farmers, and
In the forty-aevsn counties where tenancy
Is highest ths percentage runs to 6S.U.
"If we take the twenty-ftve most pros
rerous states of ths unionthe states
that produce the greater part of the cot
ton, corn, dairy products, wheat and the
fruit stuffs of the nation we may easily
estimate :, 400,000 homeless fsmllles who
have not survived tha competitive pres
eyre for land ownership. la these same
states the concentration of land owner
'Hp Is progressing at a speed that is no
luss than traalc.
Qarattoa Caaaat Be Bvaded.
"In the southwestern states the rate of
tenant Increase over the home owning
increase la two to one. In ths middle
western ststcs of Illinois, Ksnsas. Ne-'
Iraika. Ohio and Iowa tenants are be
coming more numerous then home own
"AmerU-a csnnot evade this ' growing
land question. The American people must
recognise that ours Is the last of ths
f:rt-clasa countries to recognlss ths need
of fixing upon a sound land policy. How
to redistribute the population upon the
land, how to care for the lnewarmtng
Immigrants, how to readjust the relation
ot city to country must oe the great
Issues oX the Immediate future."
