Predictions concerning the ci>tt:)ii crop which this region will produce are confusing. Some observers say it will be a big crop; otlier.s nrc uf the opinion that it will be short.

Ths convict farm existed in this county during his entire term of office, which ceased in 1928, just before my term as county judge started. Every man on that convict farm when i went into office had been sent there by Zal Harrison or his deputies. I have in my possession records showing that, with his deputies at Osceola ami Elytheville. he collected in the neighborhood of $13000.00 in prosecuting attorney's i'ee.s from the county contractor on poor and unfortunate criminals who unab!.' to pay their lines and costs, were compelled to go to the county faim to work them out. .More than 900 men were sent -to the cointtr farm during that four years by Mr. Harrison and his deputies at Osceola and Blylheville. -Many of these men were negroes who would otherwise have been conlined in the county jail. Others were white men of the very class to whose prejudice, hfi now appeals, the poor and uni'orlunatc class. During Jlr. ' Harrison's reign as prosecuting attorney and only a year or so before he \venl out of office, cili/.en.< on Little Kiver near where the farm is locate;!, bci-ame greatly incensed and outraged at alleged cruelties on that farm. A while boy named Floyd Buck died there. Zal Harrison knows, as many otlier.s do, that these citizens,' bslicving that conditions were bad on the county farm, appealed to him as prosecuting attorney to investigate the matter and break up the county farm. ]Ic had then many more time.s the power lie will have as county judge should he ever be elected, and if he ever did anything lo correct Ihe alleged evil, if. any existed, and 1 ask him here and now to show what he did. 1 know, and many other.-; knuw, thai the cili/.ens of i.iltlu Kiver were not satisfied with the attitude of Mr. Harrison toward the county farm and alleged conditions and that for some reason they went, otit and employed Mr.. John Scobuy, a lawyer who then lived at Lepanlo, to conduct an investigation of ihe county farm before the Grand Jury. Will Air. Harrison please tell ichai assistance if any lie, or his deimlij as Osceola, rendered Air. ticobey in Ihis investigation, and what they found the facts to be with reference to the county farm and alleged cruelties al thai time, and what thei/ did about it?. Tomorrow I shall have more lo .say about Mr. Harrison as prese- culing attorney and his relations with the county farm. GECX W e BARHAM Candidate for Second Term as
