Mu opinion would ho successful.
Mr. Mclaurin arrived In tho city

On Monday Mr. Mclaurin will speak

year? more truly represented tho peo
ple of the working class of the, stale
than any man In South Carolina, a
uian'a whose Tin agin il' meant
more in tho legislature than any
speech that could IKS made.
"I como to Anderson for no politi
cal cause," continued the speaker. "I
feel that tho timo has come when
some man who cannot bo charged
with selfish interest must present to
the people of tho state certain
conditions which need attention. If
i was a candidate 1 could not do this
without selfish Interest. I am
therefore going to make a canvass
over tho state to discus's (lucBtions
that feel -lo be brought before tho
"The first thing that I wish to
discuss is that of thc state's affairs.
South Carolina never has had a real
bus'uegs administration of it? public
alf airs. This same assertion mav be
applied to "a.ii of ino other eastern
states. Georgia never has. We
have never yet taken a progressive
step that must bc taken.
'Thc Hern edy.
"What is the remedy? 1 do not In
tend to make complaints unless I
can suggest another method. It
would bo very mean of mc to go
about offering criticism unless I had
somo suggestions to make.
"Wo have too many office holders.
One out of every 20 of the voters Is
on the public pay roll In some
capacity or other. Our taxes year
after year have steadily increased
far faster than our wealth as shown
by thc tax bookB. Thero has been
a tendency in tho general assembly
to have, boards to crcato now oihees.
Wo have men going over tho state
inspecting oil, fertilizer, etc., five or
six doing what one man ought to
Mr. Mclaurin then discussed thc
appropriation bill which demanda
tho attention of tho general assem
bly at every session and tho man
ner In which they are paused. Ho
E-'.atei that it was time for ' South
Carolina '.- tako stock and become
moro econ jin leal. "This can be ap
plied to our own private affairs. In
f'vo or six years tho boll weovll
will bo with us and then wo aro
going to bo compelled to practico
strict economy in our private af
fairs," stated tho speaker.
? Senator McLaurln said in 1905.
'ho assessment for taxation was
$220,00O',000, the revenue at a rate of
6 1-4 milla was a little over ono mil
lion dollars. Ten years later in 1915,
assessed valuation was $210,907,101.
Taxes amounting to $2,176,350 were
levied. Tho appropriation bill car
ried $3,463,759.82. There was a
studied effort to mislead the people.
Tho levy was fixed at 5 1-2 mills, and
a spec I ni levy ot 1-2 mill was made
for Mic asylum, and one mill for pen-'
s io ns, bringing tho total to 7 mills.
"So here is the proposition: In 10
years there baa been an Increase of
about 47 per cont in taxable values,
and of more than 100 per cent in ex
penditures. In other words how long
will it tako to bankrupt n man mak
ing $47 and spending $100.
In addition to tho amount appro
priated, the governor was authorized
to "borrow $50,000 to pay liquor con
stables and $100,000 for repairs on
the state hospital - property In Co
lumbia, not understanding tho fact
thai the state bought the state paru
and has declared tho policy of mov
ing tho asylum out there."
"I j do not present these facto to
cause dtsaatisfaction. This- govern
ment is yours, and tho people serv
ing you are thoao elected by you.
What we need ls a business Uko con
ducting of <tho public affairs. It
1 makes no difference who la governor
or what faction ls tn control.*"
Mr. MoLaurln stated that tho re
medy was in tho sending of able
-representativos to Columbia, men of
no certain faction, but men who . are
capable business men. Ho stated
that he would' advocate a budget
system, nppoi.it ? board consisting
of three or four mon to get this up,
ami make them responsible for lt,
After discussing the budget sys
tem, ho stated, that the next step
would ,be-to crcato a . board * under
whose direction, all str'j Institu
tions would como.
Licensed Graders System.
Mr. McLaurln then, ref or red te tho
Elate, warehouse- system and brought
the discussion to the licensed erad
c.rs system, which ho said ho wa.s
very anxious io see effective tn this
state. Ho told those prosent to
ask those who offered themselves as.
.candidates for the legislature if *hey
were In favor of ? the j licensed cotton
graders system, and if they* were not; !
hot to vote tor them.
Mt. McLaurln then took up the
Question of rural credits and dis
cussed it at some length. HO stated
that it waa the .btggust question be
fore the people of tho south today
and that tho future ot any country
depended on the relation of the'peo
ple to the land.
. , H?,;*t*ted that If cotton stored In
warehouser., could be transformed In-,
to, negotiable paper and money bor
rowed, the land oh which -the cotton
was grow;i ought certainly to be
transformed also. He. atetad that
cotton mills. arjd other manufactur
es in ,wh!cb largo sums ?fa?,
were Invited Issued stock, this pe
tag negotiable, and that tho same
might-to be true in --tho CSKO of land.

Mr. McLaurln was Introduced by Mr.
(!. P. Lockoy in a few appropriate
and well chosen sentences.
Mr. McLaurln did not discuss thc
labor situation at tho Equinox mill

existing conditions, he would not at
tempt to have anything to say either
However, Mr. McLaurln did discuss
labor and the problems confronting
tho laboring people today in a general
way. Ho urged thc co-operation ol
the mill people with the farmers in

Senator McLaurln also discussed
tho rural credits, how tho mili oper
atives would bo 'affected since it
would enable some of them la.'" go
back to thc farm and thUs by taking
some of tho pcoplo away from the

their labor problems.
Mr. Loeky Speke.
