Associate J?stice Hydrick Fu
neral in Spartanburg.
Spartanburg, Jan. 15.-Associate
-Justice D. E. Hydrick of the South
Carolina Supreme court, who died
last night in Washington, succombed
to an attack of bronchial pneumonia,
' following la grippe, which forced the
associate justice to stop at the na
tional capital, while en route to
Spartanburg from "Baltimore to spend
the Christmas holidays with his son,
Dr. John Lee Hydrick, who is con
nected with the Rockefeller founda
tion. Although in rather feeble
health, Justice Hydrick was supposed
to be able to undergo the trip back
to his home in Spartanburg. When
he reached Washington, however, he
was suffering intensely with la
.grippe and left the train there, going
to the Releigh hotel, where he passed
.away last night.
Dr. John Lee Hydrick was at his
father's bedside for sevei-al days
prior to the associate justice's death,
and was with his father when the
end came. Mrs. J. M. Wallace of this
city, a daughter of Justice Hydrick,
left Spartanburg last night for her
father's bedside, but the end came
before her train reached Washington.
The remains will arrive in Spartan
burg at 1 o'clock tomorrow after
noon, accompanied by Di'. Hydrick
and Mrs. Wallace. Funeral arrange
ments have not yet been completed,
but interment will be in Oakwood,
Where Mrs. Hydrick, who died some
years ago, was buried.
Associate Justice IL E. Hydrick
was about 60 years of age and was
considered one of the most scholarly
lawyers and jurists South Carolina
.has -produced. He was born in Orange
burg, where he has many prominent
connection's. He entered Wofford col
lege, remaining here as ? student
until he completed his junior year,
when he entered Vanderbilt univer
sity'in 1880. He. graduated at Van
derbilt with high honors and return
ed to South Carolina. He taught
school at Darlington for a time while
studying law. He engaged in the
practice of law for the first time in
-Spartanburg. Soon after his arrival
here he formed a partnership with
J. W. Carlisle, father of Howard B.
Carlisle. After this connection was
severed, he formed a partership with
Stanyarne Wilson, the firm being
? "known at Hydrick & Wilson.

from Spartanburg county. Later he
served two terms as state senator, re
signing during his seconnd term to
serve as judge of the Seventh judi
ciary circuit of South Carolina. This
post he filled with such conspicuous
ability that he was elected to the su
preme court bench in 1909.
He was married to Miss Rosa Lee
of this city, daughter of Maj. John
.A. Lee and sister to J. Boice Lee,
president of the Bank of Commerce.
Mrs. Hydrick died in 1910, soon after
Judge Hydrick was elevated to the
supreme court bench. Four children
were born to Justice and Mrs. Hy

Mr. McAdoo Speaks Out.
We have long had a suspicion,
which is now rapidly growing into a
.conviction, about the Hon. Wm,
Gibbs McAdoo, former Secretary o?
the Treasury, Director-General o:f
the Railroads, head of the Federal
Farm Loan Board, etc. That convic
tion is that he has more common
sense, more courage, more construe
tive ability, and a better understand
ing of the people's needs than any oi
the other men who have figured ir
President Wilson's administration.
. Right now, for example, when Sec
retary Houston and the Federal Re
serve Board do not know how to dc
anything else but play safe and si1
tight on the lid, Mr. McAdoo has
spoken out strongly for a more elas
tic and constructive attitude on th<
part of the 'nation's financial leaders
Here is his statement: "I am franl
to say that I think the policies thu!
far pursued with respect to credits
nave been too drastic, but whether OJ
not I am right, I am sure that th<
situation should now be reviewed ir
the light of existing conditions. ?
more-liberal policy of credits shoulc
be put into effect immediately." Anc
with especial regard to agriculture
MT. McAdoo says:
/ "The farmer, by the very naturi
of his business, is more exposed ti
adverse influences and has less pro
"tection against them than any othei
class. The bulk of his crop mature!
at the same time; and, if forced upon
the market all at once or in a short
period, he may not realize even the
cost of production. To have a chance
to make a fair profit he. must have a
credit to carry his crop for a reason
This is in line with what we said
last week. As we then said, the far*
mer is exactly in the plight the man
ufacturer would be in if a whole
year's supply of goods had to be sold
in three months and each factory
employee marketed his own output.
Mr. McAdoo sees that farmers have
a different situation from manufac
turers, and that this fact calls for
different treatment from the govern
ment and from financial institutions.
Yet, Mr. W. P. G. Harding and other
financial leaders are calling on Presi
dent-elect Harding while the press
"Farmer relief is understood to
have been one of the specific prob
lems discussed, with the board "offi
cials advising against special gov
ernment protection for any particu
The truth is, the farmer doesn't
want any "special government pro
tection." He only wants a financial
system as well adapted to agricultu
ral needs as to commercial and indus
trial needs. The present system was
made to fit them and does not fit the
farmer. Hence he finds himself in the

League of Nations Member
bership Held by" Forty-nine
New York, Jan. 16.-The league
of nations will be one year old to
day. Its membership now comprises
49 nations representing, it is esti
mated, 1,260,000,000 people, or three
fourths of the world's population of
1,605,000,000. Eleven additional
states with a total population of 44,
000,000 have formally applied for
admission, while it is known that
Germany with its 60,000,000 people
wants to join as soon as she is given
a chance. This leaves about 300,000,
000 of the world's inhabitants com
pletely outside the league.
The league began its life when the
council met for the.first time in Paris
. at the summed''of Pr?side?*; Wilson
on .January -16,-. 1920, vith 23 metn
bers. By'the time the'first meeting
of the assembly was held a few
months ago, the membership had in
creased to 41. Eight have since been
At the time of its birth the league
had no quarters of its own but to
day it- is installed in its permanent
seat at Geneva where an old hotel
has been transformed into the Palace
of the Nations. The general secre
tariat, under Sir Eric Drummond, has
a staff of more than 300.
There have been ll meetings of
the council of the league and most
of the subsidiary or semi-independ
ent bodies contemplated by the cov
enant have been brought into exist
ence. These include the internation
al court of justice, the first institu
tion of its kind in the world's history;
machinery for the registration of in
ternational treaties; commissions to
deal with disarmament, mandates,
economic blockade measures, public
health, international statistics and
the international labor office.
Preparations have been made for
bodies to deal with international
communication and the suppression
of the white slave traffic and the crea
tion has begun of permanent ma
chinery for the regulation of inter
national credits and the economic re
habilitation of countries ruined by
the war. Friends of the league point
to its intercession in the Poland
Lithuanian and Swedish-Finnish dis
putes, and the latter over the Aland
Islands, as among its achievements,
although both cases await final settle
ment. They also enumerate as stand
ing to the league's credit the repa
triation of more than 200,000 war
prisoners and a campaign against ty
phus in Poland. They say it has fur
nished a government for the Saar
district, formerly German, and that
it has helped Danzig to assume its
position as a free city under the
league's special protection.
Bad Cold and Cough Cured by Cham

Several years ago C. D. Glass,
Gardiner, Me., contracted a severe
cold and cough. He tried various med

for it was of any permanent benefit
until a druggist advised him to try
