(fThe farmers need of labor; 2nd. The probability of relief under the, ation of the proposed immigration bill; rd: The lUStifipatinn nf an atlM 1 IVfom the agricultural fund. (1) . In a general way we all kaew that farmers need labor and need it eenly, and the data collected by Secretary Bruner. of the department of agriculture, shows a definite denial!-for farm labor from 77 counties, 1 or about 80 per cent, of the state, and an aggregate of 4 approximately 62,000 farm laborers needed by those on!y who sent estimates. This indicates an , actual need of perhaps 90,000 to 100,-' 000 at the present time. ' As compared with the need of manufacturers, the bureau of labor estimates ' the number of larm laborers in the state at 450.000 and the number of laborers employed by the manufacturing interest at 90,000. From the besc 1 availa'3le sources it is estimated that short. In actual numbers, the need of the farmers is six times greater than that of the factories and mills. If tho manufacturers suffer a loss of 15 ro 20 per cent in the capacity of th-iir mills for the lack of labor, do, not the farmers suffer equally for the lack of labor, which compels them to Ie?.v2 good land lying idle, and do-they not suffer worse wtten for lack;: Of labov laDoi- ;annot :Carc they lose matured crops which can be harvested How many North lina farmers will plant their crops this spring with the assurance of having enough labor to properly cultivate and ' harvest them? ' --. : f-VV';'':-aC-). Wfill the operation of the bill Aid to relieve tie farmers' need foi.' ' labor? Assuredly yes. This opinion is baqed on actual experience during ibo last two years in bringing immigrants to this state arid locating them on small farms There Is at present a very large .movement of, foreign, farmer, om-. igrants to this country; most of whom settle in the north and west because for many years the great tide, of immi-;. j smtlon has taken that path and their 1 relatives Urid friends, already settled, wo ir ThMft farmw imnii- cause they seek to escape - -- kent them down to a bare existence with absolutely no chance to improve their condition.

''; iy&r ' ( The proper application of 5 this- bill is 4 the mosteffectivemris this desirable element to the state as , i t will enable our state ' agents abroad to select only. the best and to ship them .. directly to our ports. The direct shipment to the port near- r est ultimate destination is of the greatest importance; if we depend on out- . side ports-whether New -York, Char-leston, or Norfolk, we will get what : other people don't want. , - - HThe essential is to furnish our agents road with schedules of occupations, w Vages, accommodations, etc., so that the prospective immigrant may, before leaving the other side, know definitely what to expect, and this can be done T quite as well for the farmeras for the manufacturer. If the farmer will take the trouble to make known his. needs and what he can offer, he will benefit -at least, as much and probably more than tbc manufacturer." ' - (3).

The contribution of the iindiyidual being expended for the general benefit exactly as must ;be the allotment from the agricultural fund If -need alone were considered the farmers should contribute six times as much as the" manufacturers. As it is, he is asked to sanction an allotment from a fund which, if not spent for i this purpose will be spent for soni? other purpose which is net likely tc! be of as much value to him as the relief of his need that for a reliable and sufficient class of labor, In conclusion I appeal for a law mat jwill give to the state a department of . immigration with sufficient scope and authority to be effective. The farming j interest, - especially in eastern No: tW jCarolina, is mainly dependent on negro j labor, which each year becomes more (unreliable and harder to get.

To keep up a constant force it is necessary to have a surplus of from 50 to 75 per cent more than the number actually needed at any one time. ' The bill should therefore make it possibl -to obtain good . immigrant farmer labor capable of replacing ne- . jgrpes as field hands, and it is doubtful;. lif any of the northern European xouii-; jtriies can furnish people able tcrstahl" 'the summer climate in the fields;' the!
