[Column 2]


President [Barrest] of the National Farmers' Union has little faith in the promises of office-seekers. He advises the farmers to discount their promises almost as much as he discounts their hallelujah promises to be good. In an address issued to the members of the union, Mr. Barret says: "The currnet presidential year will probably see more [glittering] promises peddled to the farmers than upon similar occasions in many dacades. On both sides, and the [?] on both sides the contest. [?] hot and close. They are playing in every element to boost their stock. And the farmer vote will be coaxed and cajoled and hypnotized by every device known to ancient and modern politics. I have made it no secret that I have been able to be of service to the farmers of thus country because I took the promises they made at every hallelujah meeting to overturn the universe with several grains of salt. "If you want to get the most results out of politicians who will be appealling for your votes from this time forward. I recommend a similar course to you. There is, however, a difference between the politician glibly offering all sorts of promises and the farmer voluntarily offering to do anything undre high heaven to further the common cause. "Nine-tenths of the promises the politicians make with a smiling face are spoken simply for the purpose of catching votes: Their is no desire or intention to redeem them. "Work a farmer up to a boiler[bursting] pitch of enthusiasm as a local, or county, or state convention. and he is prodigal with his promises -but, at the [time], he honestly believes he will keep them. "Later when he reaches home and the "feeling" has died away, amd he gets busy patching the fences, or repairing the roof or keeping the grass [out] of the cotton, the promise [oozes] out of his mindlike water out of a leaky barrel. Sometimes, too he gets suspicious of his officials jealous of the members, [dissatis fied] because the union hasn't [reformed] the universe over-night and considers himself absolved from his pledge. It all amounts to the same thing in the long run. "Because the two parties, with all their factions, are on their toes, politically speaking, this year, fighting for life and public favor, it is one of the best opportiunities recently presented for the farmer to [assure] those things, in a legistalative sense, for which he has long been contending. "When the situation [crystallizes] later on I may have something to say touching what the politicians offer the farmers, and how much [reli ance] can be placed upon specific pledges. But first, last and all the time, hear in mind that when the tempation seizes you to get over-heated about some particular political favorite- keep your vest down, your head cool and treat the candidate bidding for favor with just as much suspicion as you do the other fellow in a [?] -trade" it has almost become a joke the way politicians court the farmer during campaigns.

AUTOMOBILE EXPORTS: Twenty [thousand] automobiles will be the export record of the United States in the fiscal year which ends with the present month, and their value, including parts and accessories, will approximate $27,000,000. This statement is necessarily in very round [terms] for the Bureau of Statistics, upon whose figures the [esti mate] is based, has present detailed figures covering but 10 months. They show, however, nearly 17,000 automobiles exported to foreign countries in the 10 months, ending with April, valued at [3][?] million dollars, parts [thereof, 3 1-1 million dollars; tires, sent seperately from machines under the head of exports of rubber manufactures, over 2 million, and automobile engines twothirds of a million dollars, making a total of the 10 monthsof practically [22] million dollars and fully justifying the [assertion] that for the full 12 months the total will approximate and probably exceed $27,000,- 000. This figure includes only the exports to foreign countries and is exclusive of the 900 machines sent to our non-contiguous territory, valued at about $1,500,000. This total of $27,000,000 worth of automobiles semt out of the country in 1912 is in marked contrast with the figures of a decade ago, 1902, which, by the way was the first year in which the Bureau of Statistics found the exports of automobiles of sufficient inportance to justify a separate record, the total for [page cut off]

been especially marked during the period since 1905. This growth being coincident with the expansion of the domestic industry and [e] corresponding decrease in imports of automobiles. Thus in the period from [1899] to 1901 the value of the domesic manufactures of this class of articles increased about $25,000,000 from $30,000,000 in 1599 to [$10,000,000] in 190[1], an increase of $25,000,000; while in the period from {1903] to 1909 the value of the output increased pratically $220,000,000 from $30,000,000,000 in 1901 to $219, 000,000 in 1909. Accompanying this notable growth in production, the imports of automobiles decreased from $1,[9]50,000 in 1906 and $1,750,- 000 in 1912. While France still leads the world in exports of automobiles, the United States surpasses that and all other countries in rapidity of growth of production and exportation. For example, our own exports of that class of articles have increased from $5,000,000 in the calendar year 190[8] to nearly $20,000,000 in 1911; while in the same period those of France increased from $24,000,000 to $31,- [7]00,000; thos eof the United Kingdom from $[7],000,000 to $15,500,000; those of Germany, from $8,000,000 to $11,000,000 : and those of Itlay, from $[5],500,000 to 610,000. Thus in the brief three-year period from- 1908 to 1911 there was an absolute gain of about $15,000,000, or 300 percent in exports from the United States; of $7,[?]00,000, or over 100 percent in those from the United Kingdom; of $8,000,000 or {266] percent in those from Germany; and of $[?] 000 or lsightly more than 10 percent in those form Italy. Approximately 25 percent of the automobiles exported from the United States are shipped to Canada: about 10 percent to Europe, chiefly Great Britain; about 20 percent to British Australia, about 8 percent to Scott America; and smaller proportions to Mexico, to the West Indies, and various countries in Asia, Oceania and Africa. During the 10 months ending with April, the latest period for which figures of distribution are available in the Bureau of Statistics. [4718] automobiles were exported to the United Kingdom, - [4624] to Canada, [3034] to British Oceana, [1283] to South America, [919] to Asia, and other [Oceania]: and 1508 to all other foreign countries. There were also shipped, during the same period, 110 automobiles to Hawaii, [142] tp PuertoRico, and 11 to Alaska. Of the automobiles imported into the United States, France supplies about one-half. Of the [?] machines imported during the 10 months endong with April, [330] were from France, 170 from the United Kingdom, 115 from Italy, 10 from Garmany and 113 from all other countries. The fall in export price of automobiles is an especially striking feature of the Bureau of Statistics' figures. They show an average valuation for all automobiles exported in 1909 of $[1900] each and in 191[2], of $[950], the average export price in 1912 being thus but a little more than one half of that [1900]. This remarkable fall in the average valuation of the automobiles exported is due in part to a general reduction in the selling [price] of auntomobiles during the period in question, 2 disposition on the part of manufacturers to reduce the price of the machines to meet popular demand, [butmore] especially to this fact that larger numbers of partially [usual], if "second-hand" machines are in recent years being exported to Canada, Mexico, and the West Indies, thus reducing the average valuation of the entire number exported.

A HAPPY ENDING. It will be a happy ending to [?] appeared at one time to be a threatening situation if the negros are released from their purchase of the North Main street property. The Greenville parties interested in the transaction have stated their willingness to withdraw from it. and it is most probable that the outof-town parties when they become acquainted with conditions, will do likewise. It will be well if friction is prevented.

Press Comment

For a Left Handed League. Charlotte Observer. Now comes Rev. Br. W. A. Frye of orange, N.J., claiming that all left-handed persons are geniuses. Dr. Frye who is presumably lefthanded himself, cites Scriptual warrant for his [assertion], [From] the Book of [Judges]. "But when the children of Isreal cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, [Ehud] the sun of [?] Benjamite, a man left-handed"...It appears that left-handedness was a distinguishing trait of the Benjamites, for the same Scriptural writer tells us that amoung the men of this tribe there were seven [hundred] men left-handed, of whom every one could sling stones to a hand-breadth and not miss. "Most [?] geniuses," continues Dr. Frye, "are left-handed, though perhaps I should say lefthanded people are geniuses. There is a real reason for it. The reason people are right handed is that the left lobe-of-the brain is more developed. There is a distinct advantage in having the right lobe of the brain more developed. If that [side] is the more developed, you are lefthanded; left-handed people are right-brained people and out of the ordinary. [?] are apt to do the interesting or the unusual things. [?] know that amoung the great baseball pitchers the smartest are the left-handed ones. Our reverend contemporary also [promises] that left-handed persons shall form themselves into a fellowship to shake the left hand as a sign of recognition. Presumably they would employ their organization amoung other purposes, to resist means taken against left-handedness at home and in the schools. They would vehemently antagonize scientists and statisticians who assert that left-handed persona contribute in altogteher disproportionately high share of [imbecility] insanity and crime. But we doubt very much whether the plan for a fellowship can be worked at all. People having similar physical characteristics do not neccessarily [group] themselves along this line. We recall that where Judge Parker was nominated for president we invoked the [shades] of all the great red-headed democrats beginning with Thomas Jefferson and called upon all red-headed voters to do thier part. But what befell. Whether or not because of any special attraction, the redheaded vote went to Roosevelt with a [rush], Dr. Frye would probably find as little solidarity amung the lefthanded as we found amoung the red heads then.

Writes B. D. Goldsmiths That he will Build Hotel, Saying That he Did Not Care Anything About "That Law" as It Would not Stand in the Courts- Mr. Hoke Says he is Willing to Release the Goldsmiths- Matter May be Ended Without Any Trouble- Board of Trade Passes Resolutions.

W.H. and B.D. Goldsmith, colored men of this city, who some time ago lepped into the lime light when they purchased from the Hoke-HillReal Estate and Investment company, the property known as the Hoke property situated on the corner of North Main and College streets, today wrote Mr. Hoke asking to be released from the trade. Letter to Mr. Hoke. Their letter to Mr Hoke follows: Greenville, S.C. May 31, 1912 Mr. D. N. Hoke, City. Dear Sir-Doubtless you can see by the papers that public sentiment is all against us. Therefore we would ask you if you would please let us withdraw from our trade for the property. You can see there isn't anything on our part why we would not carry out our part of the contract. If you let us have our money we will return papers and you will oblige. B. D. GOLDSMITH Will Release Negros. Mr. Hoke stated this afternoon to a reporter of The Daily Piedmont that under the conditions be will release the Goldsmith men from the trade and will return them the money which they paid him when the trade was consummated. Mr. Hoke said, however, that the Goldsmith men were purchasing the property for a syndicate of negros and that the deal for the land would not be entirely off until he hears from Sammel A. Kelsey, a New York negro real estate dealer who is financing the proposed hotel. Make No Statement. Mr. Hoke said he did not desire to make any definite statement at this time. However commenting on the statement which has been made that the block in which the property in question is located in a "white block" Mr. Hoke said that a man who is now opposed to the Goldsmith negroes purchasing the property, himself some years ago planted a negro colony on the block. Says Hotel Be Built. B.D. Goldsmith has received the following letter from Samuel A. Kelsey, the New York real estate man, in which he says the hotel will be built. The letter follows: Mr. D. H. Goldsmith Greenville, S.C. Dear Sir Relative to the plans of building of hotel, I wish that you would forward me diagram of lot and state what part of same would be best suited for structure. I am inclined to believe that 90 feet on Main street and 140 on College street would be sufficient. Plans I select will be drawn here. We do not care any thing for that law, as it will not stand in the courts. We will build amd if they don't care for us in that locality they will have to buy us out.
