The large crushing mills and a
few so called specialists and ex-
perts in tbe Department of Agri-
culture seem determined to re
quire that all cottonseed be sold
on grades arrived at by a com-
plicated and impractical formula.
Cottonseed grading bas been
tried and bas proven a failure.
An investigation disclosed tbat a
number of samples were taken
from tbe same bale of seed sent
to different chemists and their
analysis varied in value on a ton
of seed from $2 to $14 Further
it cost about $2.50 to grade a
sample of seed. Therefore, the
individual farm seller will not get
tbe benefit of the grading, but
the purchaser of the seed will
guess at the grade and very likely
the guess will not be iu the farm
ers' interest. And when a suffi-
cient quantity of seed has been
gathered by the purchaser, it will
be graded and sold accordingly.
I expect to do what I can to pre
vent any such regulations being
put into eSect, as it is against
tbe farmers' interest.
The National Debt Exaggerated
It is true that the Federal Gov
eminent owes $25,000,000,1)00.
Vary little of this money, howev-
•r, has been spent in a way that
does not provide for its repay-
ment. For instance, billions of
dollars of it has been loaned to
railway, insurance, buildiug and
loan companies, banks and other
lines of business and industry, as
well as to home and farm owners, i
It will be paid back with interest.
Much of this money has been
furnished for public works con
structions Seventy per cent of
it will be paid back with interest.
Very little of tbe money tbat
bas been expended since Mr.
Rooselvt became President will
not be paid back in full with in
terest. It is not generally pub
lished that the Government has
in its general fund today more
thaa two and one half billion
dollars in addition to tbe two
billioo dollars gold stabilization

OF GRAND JURY
Linden, Case County, Texas,
Oct. 17,1934 —To tbe Honora-
ble Hicks Harvey, Judge of the
District Court, Cass Co., Texas:
We, tbe Grand furors, empan-
eled by your Honor for the Sep-
teraber term of the District Court
of Cass county, beg to submit
this, our Final Report:
We have been in session ten
days, haVe diligently inquired
into all the violations coming to
our knowledge, have examined a
large nuuitmr of witnesses, many
of whom were in regard to
charges Of Illegal voting, but it is
our opinion tbat there was no
crimiual intent by any voter.
Some irregularities, some mana-
gers in the past election left the
polling pia-ce and went to the
home of some aged voters and
accepted their ballots there. We
deem this gross conduct on the
election mauager and suggest
this not to happen again.
As a result of our efforts we
have returned 52 bills of indict
ment, 50 of which were for felony
violations and 2 for oiisdemean
ore. 11 of these indictments were
in capital cases. To those not
Informed this might reflect on
the citizenship of this county,
but we are happy to say that all
these capital offences were com
mitted by men who live outside
of Cass county. The fact that
all those charged with capital
offenses have been apprehended
is enough Buid to recommend our
Sheriff and his able Deputies to
whom this Grand Jury feels in-
We found all cases in which
examining trials bad been held
in such perfect shape tbat we were
able to pass on them without the
expense of haviug witnesses
brought before us for which we
thank our able County Attorney
Forest Wbitwortb. We also
thank the District Attorney and
County Attorney for their able
assistance rendered intheGraud
Jury room. Also for their power
aud influence in the District Court
room, aud we predict tbat after
this term of Court the way faring
hijackers aud all evil doers will
know that Elmer L. Lincoln,
Forest Wbitworth and E Lois
Johnsou are iu tbe saddle for law
enforcement, aud will steer clear
of Cass county.
We wish to thank the Aroeri
can Legion for the use of the Le
gion Hall for the meetings of the
Grand Jury during tbis term of
Court, and assure them tbat it
was a public service rendered by
them that should be appreciated
by the entire citizenship of tbe
We have examined the County
Farm and find it in normal con-
dition except the roofs on tbe
building are in bad repair and
should have attention at once
before the winter season. Also
we have examined tbe County
Jail have talked with prisoners
who report good treatment at
the bands of the Guards and fiud
the jail as comfortable and suni
taritary as the crowded condition
We thank your Honor for his
able charge delivered to us when j
we were empaneled, also the able
suggestions While we were in see j
siou. VVe also thank our Riding
Bailiffs, Blalock, Almoud and
Anthony for the courteous ser >
vice rendered the Grand J ury and
tbe citizens of Case county.
Now our duties being finished,
we beg to be discharged.
