.Liquor and - Automobiles.

were hauled into Edgefield by the
car load, like it was in the old dis
pensary days, don't you know that
with hundreds of automobiles now
.going up and down dur public roads,
many of them driven by negroes,
we would haye lynchings almost

temerity to raise his voice against
prohibition forever hold his peace.

Would Fix Rate of Interest.
While Senator Smith-"Cotton"
Smith, we mean-is not in the lime
light as much as some of the more
noisy fellows, yet he does not fail
to score occasionally in a way that
contributes to the welfare of the
masses. The interests of the classes
generally- take care of themselves,
especially is this true in national
Senator Smith, seeing what havoc
has been wrought by the steady in
crease in the interest rate charged
by the regional reserve banks, has
introduced a bill fixing the rate by
enactment, rather than leave so
important a matter to the whims of
one man or a few men. If the re
gional reserve banks were establish
ed to stabilize the finances of the
country, or serve as a sort of bal
ance wheel to prejerve the financial
equilibriumNof the country, we see
no reason why the rate of interest
should not be fixed, and not be sub
ject to as sudden (and unwarrant
ed) fluctuation as the cotton mar
ket. Senator Smith favors fixing a
rate of not exceeding five per cent.
While we are not a financier, nor the
son of a financier, yet we venture
.the assertion that had such a rate
been "maintained by Governor Hard
ing4 during the past eight months,
this country-we mean, the people
would be something like a score of
billions of dollars better off. Of
course, the mere increase in the
rate of interest did not alone pre
cipitate a greater calamity than the
World War, so far as this'country
was concerned, but Governor Hard
ing rather boasts that this was the
first step in his deflation policy.
