EXERT GREAT INFLUENCE Without Sspport of Radical Labor Group, Baldwin May Be Unable to Push Policy Which Would Weaken France. London--Premier Baldwin is deter, mined that at all costs Britain must lead "a move for the settlement of reparations and interallied debts." ,fin his mind te entente with France, though he strongly desires to main- tain it. takes second place. But the most influential wing of the ]arty places the enente first. They insist France has a righ2 to deal with a de- faulting debtor as she chooses and England muse not seek to save Ger- many at the cost of French enmity. The conservative revolt against the Baldwin policy is still a matter of se- secret opposition within the cabinet and of mutterings in the Carlton club and the great houses of conservative aristocracy. There is no doubt that if the pre- mier sticks to his guns, he can, with the help of Marquis Curzon and Lord Robert Cecil have his own way re- gardi'ng the draft of the note to Ger- many, which will be drawn up this week. Bu the price will be virtual break with the right wing of his own followers. There may be no open fight now. the conservatives know themselves to be unable to form a government that could command fe support of the Commons. But they will seek to hamstring any policy that becomes anti-French. They may compel the premier to rely on labor and liberals for support in the fortbcoming moves on the uropean chessboard. Tne Marquis of Salisbury and the Earl of Derby, conservative leaders. in the cabinet are representatives of the great landowning aistocratic fam- ilies that are nearly all intensely pro, French. In event of an open contest they could rely upon not more than 100 members of the Commons, though a far larger number of ministeriallsts are disgruntled with Mr. Baldwin's present policy, Proof that the conservatives rel- lze- t~tbir present impotence is found in the Morning Post, which has a great influence among the conserva- tives, and Lord Rothermore's Daily Mall, Evening News and Daily Mirror. These papers do not attack the pre- mier, but do defend France. They plainly indicate they will support Paris to the limit if the government threatens separate action after the British note is considered by the French. Should the conservatives de- cide to challenge Mr. Baldwin openly, the first move would be an onslaught on him in these papers. 12-HOUR STEEL DAY ENDS SOON. Abolition Starts in Six Weeks, Says Steel Official. New York.--Elhert I-L Gary, head of the United States Steel corpora- Lion, stated that abolition of the 12- hour day in the steel industry, re- cently pledged President Harding, would be begun within the next six weeks. peaking through his secretary, Mr. Gary said: "We shall probably com- mence actively taking steps to re- duce the ntrmher of 12-hour workers within the next six wees." He declined to reveal the machin- ery already set in motion to abolish the 12-hour day, nor would he esti- mate the number of workers who would be affected within the six weeks' period.

The project for the gravel road from the east end of the Rankin Pike through Brandon and o con- nect up with the gravel road a few miles west of Pelahatchle. 20 mlle: east of Jackson, "has been approved by the secretary of agriculture at VCashington. Preliminary plans sub- st:led by the state highway com- mission have been checked over in VCashington and all possible speed is being made looking to the final approval of the plan and tim let- ting of the contract. It Is hoped that the contract may be let within 60 days and that work will speedily follow. It is not hoped to com- plete the read this year, but with good weather all grades may be made, which will give an opportu- nity for the fills to become thor- oughly packed and ready for the gravel by early spring. With this road completed and a few missing links between Jackson and Meridian, .there will be a gravel highway from that city through Jackson to Vicks- burg, The federal government is furnishing half of the money to build this road in Rankin county and Rankln county is furnishing the other half. With this road complet- ed there will be a gravel road good 365 days in the year from the Ala- bama line to the Loulslan line at Vicksburg. There has long been a splendid gravel road from Jack- son to Vicksburg, there being two routes--one by Raymond. the coun- ty site 'of the second Judicial dis- trict of Hinds county, from Jackson via Edwards, and another from Jackson to Vicksburg by Clinton, Bolton and Edwards.

Mr. Taylor planted from both kinds of seed, the dellnt- ed seed and the ordinary ginned prod- uct, and he finds that the planting from the delinted seed is "etter in every way. He was the first to show a cotton bloom in this section and this bloom came from the experimen- tal crop planted along with the other crop. To Open Cotton Bureau Drive. Qultman.3. M.

The newspapers of the state seem to be practically a unit for this matter, and predicate their advocacy of it upon the fact that in those states where it is the law, notably Il- linois" such publication has resulted In putting millions upon millions of dollars into the county and state treasuries that escaped taxation be- fore such publication. The / state- ment that Gov.

FARMERSAREDISCONTENTED Administration's Entry Seeks to 8tern Tide of Radicalism-- Tariff Fails to Help the Farmers, SL Paul, Mlnn.--Gov. Jacob Aaai Ottesen Press, Republican candidate for United States senator, is fight- ing a desperate battle to prevent further encroachments of organized radicalism in Minnesota, where they gained an important foothold with the election of Senator Shipstead last year. The farmers of Minnesota appear dissatisfied with the Fordney-Mc- Cumber tariff law, although the high duties on farm products were incor- porated at the behest of the farm bloc in Congress and Minnesota's statesmen in both houses were -prominent figures In the farm bloc To the amazement of the farmers, If not of the farm bloc, the high duties did not operate to prevent the bottom from falling out of the market for farm products. Now it is sen, as was charged at the time, that the farm bloc, with the acquiescence of the farmers, connived at the sky high boosting of duties on manufactured articles to gain support for high duties on agricultural products. The high tar- iff on manufactured articles oper- ated to maintain prices thereon by excluding importation of cheaper competing articles, but in the ease of most farm pr0duets the tariff:'did not check competition with imports because there Is no such competi- tion to check. Now the farmers are blaming the tariff for the high price of what they consume without be- Ing able to bless the tariff for the price at which they sell. Governor Prens, who is President Harding's candidate, is now adve- eating the revision of the present law downward. Preus, a man of 40 years, grand- son of Norwegian immigrants, grand- son and son of Lutheran clergy- men, polished, educated and posses- sing an engaging personality, is en- deavoring to unite the conservatives and progressives of all the parties against radicals in control of the Farmer-Labor party. Unless the Farmer-Labor party is defeated in this special election, say the poli- ticians it probably will dominate Minnesota nest year in both the state and national elections. The governor, who IS stumping] the rural districts, is telling the] farmers that there is more promise] for. them of relief from their eco: heroic distress in "a sane program of agrian legislation," than in the nebulous panaceas proposed by Mag- nus Johnson, his Farmer-Labor op- ponent Moreover, the Farmer- Labor party, he points out, cannot carry out its promises. "Only through one of the major political parties," says the governor, "can either the farmer or the labor- ing man expect any help. The Farmer-Labor party with one senator and two congressmen cannot be of any avail. "the only real help must come from a major party and right now and for the next two years at least the Republican party is the party in power." While Mr. Johnson and other Farmer-Labor leaders are tnplring hopes of a government guaranteed profit on wheat and other grains, although "there is not the slightest chance of such legislation.
