Bonus Would Give Ex-Soldiers
Washington, Feb. 5.-To the
?"Yank" who got into the war early
and stayed late, the soldier bonus bill,
? which now seems certain to pass the
.senate speedily, would mean a sum
sufficient to set him up in business
in a small way and to secure his fu
ture independence if he invests it ju
If he served overseas the full
poricd of war he could draw a maxi
mum, in cash, of $953.25. If he served
heme he could draw a maximum of
$755. This is figured on the full pe
Tiod from April 6, 1917,'to June 30,
1919, inclusive, the maximum period
for which a soldier will be able to
draw adjusted compensation of the
"bill is passed. If he served overseas
lie would get $1.25 a day less the $60
"bonus alerady paid, and if he served
at home he would get $1 a day less
the same $60.
But there are features to the pro
posed bill by which he could draw
nearly half of much more if he
.doesn't take it in cash. He could even
get his additional amount in cash if
le uses it to pay his way through
Five different plans-for compensa
tion are provided, The four, in addi
tion to the cash plan are the "adjust
ed service certificate" or paid-up en
dowment insurance plan; the "voca
tional training aid" plan, the "farm
or home aid" plan and the "land set
tlement aid" plan.
Insurance Plan is Explained.
The "adjusted service certificate,"
or insurance plan, is the nature of a
twenty-year insurance policy. At the
end of twenty years the veteran
would receive in cash 140 per cent of
what he would receive if he took* a
cash payment at once, plus the 4 1-2
per cent interest.
That means if he served overseas
the maximum period of the war he
would get at the end of the-twenty
years $1,342.25 in cash, plus 4 1-2
per cent compounded and semi-an
If he served at home for the max
imum period he would draw $1,057
plus the same interest.
If he died before twenty years
his estate would receive the full
amount that would be due, ordinarily,
at the end of twenty years.
If he wished to borrow on this cer
ti.'icate he could get, in the third
year 90 per cent of his adjusted ser
. vice pay at 4 1-2 per cent interest.
As the certificate grew "older" he
would be enabled to borrow contin
ually* incre?sing amounts.
Vocational Training is Optional.
If the veteran chose the vocation
al training plan he would also receive
140 per cent pf what he would ordi
narily receive in cash. He would re
ceive this monthly at the rate of $1.75
a day fer the period of training. As
in the insurance plan this would mean
the overseas man could receive a
maximum of $1,342.25 and the home
service man could get a maximum of
The "farm or home a d plan"
would authorize the veteran to re
ceive from the government the ad
justed service pay plus an additional
40 per cent if he applied the money
toward the purchase of a farm or
home. As in the insurance and the
training plans, the maximum amounts
would be $1,342.25 and $1,057 for
the two classes of veterans.
The "land seulement aid" plan
?would give the veteran the prefer
ence right to take lands on the open
ing of public or Indian lands or of
reclamation projects. He would be ,
permitted to file on such lands as
early as sixty days prior to their op
ening for general public entry. In ad
dition under this plan, the veteran
would be entitled to his adjusted com
pensation plus 40 per cent, but would
have to apply it entirely in making
payments "in connection with the
lands" on which he has mace entry.
Majority Will Not Get Maximum.
Of course, the majority of former
service men would not receive the
maximum amount due for either
fl.me or overseas service. The latter
jroup would include soldiers and
sailers who were on foreign service
it the outbreak of the war, mostly
The "full period" home service
men would be very consiredable and
would include, in addition to the reg
alar army and navy men who were
in the service at the time the war
broke out, many national guardsmen
who had not yet been mustered out
after Mexican border duty and many
who "jumped into the game" when it
seemed that war was imminent.
However, even the veteran who
served only one year or six months
would receive amounts of tidy pro
If he served one year overseas he
could drftw $396.28 cash or $554.74
on either of the other four plans. If
Ihe served one year at home he,could
draw $305 cash or $427 on one of
the other four plans.
If he served six months overseas
'he could draw $175 cash or $245 on
any of the other four plans. If he
served six months at home he could
draw $128 in cash or $178.20 on one
of the other four plans. v
Bill to Prohibit Advance
Charges Phone Service.
Columbia, Feb. 9.-Representative
O'Rourke, of Charleston, has intro
duced in the house a bill to prohibit
the telephone companies from charg
ing in advance for service.
Representative Barnwell has in the
house a bill to require all water
plants, public and private, to have
their water examined ' every quarter
by the state board of health and also
by a private chemist. The bill is advo
cated by the state board of health.
For the Sake of Votes.
The Lower House of Congress after
solemn deliberation recently passed
an "anti-lynching bill.. The vote co
incided roughly with the partisan di
vision of northern Republicans and
Theoretically, the object of the bill
was to reduce lynchings, which have
had for their most numerous victims,
the Negroes living in the South...Ac
tually, the ob>ect of the bill was to
cater favor with Negro voters, who I
are numerous in some of the northern
voting centers. \
Theoretically^ the opposition to
the bill was insured" by the altruistic
belief that Federal interference with
state officials for shortcomings in pun
ishing lynchers, is an unwarranted
and dangerous extension of the Fed
eral paternalistic rule. Actually, the
opposition felt that the southern vo
ters would resent 'any vote which'j
might be construed as catering to
Negro voters may look forward
with confidence to the appearance
shortly of some franked copies of the
Congressional Record in which the
sufferings of their race are eloquent
ly denounced. So, too, ardent uphold
ers of the Old South may enhearten
themselves with the thought that
printed patriotism, of their own par
ticular brand, will soon be delivered
As for the bill, if it becomes a
law, there are few southerners who
fear that it will have any more effect
than did the constitutional amend
ment giving the Negro the vote.
Neither do the northerners.
But viewed simply as an arrange
ment of words, the measure is entire
ly commendable. So too, would be a
constitutional amendment prohibit

VVomsyn Voters' League C
vention as Viewed by a;
The state convention of the Wo
Voters League met in our capitol
on Wednesday, February 8, and
held in the Y. W. C. A. building,
previous evening a banquet and
ception having been held at the
ferson hotel. The first persons in
hall to be seen on entering at an e
hour, were Mrs. Joseph Sprotl
Manning, state president of the
man's Christian Temperance Un
and Mrs. N.,G. Gonzales in close i
versation. Mrs. Sprott and1 Mrs C
zales are devoted friends. The p
ent office of Mrs. Sprott in her
idence in Manning was thy; r<
where Miss Barron was married
N. G. Gonzales which was at 1
time the Barron home. One wc
have thought from the intentne-?
the conversation that Mrs. Sp:
and Mrs. Gonzales were' discus?
politics at this woman voters' lea
convention, but they were not. T
were talking about some Sun
school work they were mutually
terested in and Mrs. Gonzales '
regretting that she would have to
absent from the meeting on acco
of a wedding which was to take pl
in the family at the same hour. .
Tunning from these two, I ca
face to face with Mrs. Dan Ouzts
greenwood, where they have i
members "of the Woman Vote
League. Mrs. Ouzts is superintend'
of the Woman's Missionary Union
Abbeville association and when ?
was accosted with the question
to what she was doing there she si
in substance, "We are away ahe
of Edgefield in everything, and
pecially in the Woman Vote
League where we are holding on
our Farm and Home Demonstrati
agents in spite of the adverse reco
mendation of the Grand Jury.
Next was another product of Ed|
field's older territory, whom I h
never seen but 11 recognized her
soon as I saw her face, Mrs,. Richa
Williams, president of the Greenwo
Woman Voters' League. Mrs. W
Hams was Miss Annie Gaines, ai
that is how-she was first described
us before I had met her, as "a mei
ber of that intelligent Gaines fai
ily." She is related to a great mai
people in Edgefield county, especial
the Ouzts family. She is tall and sie
der and blonde, and i&de later, tl
response to the address of welcon
in a most gracious and graceful mai
ner. She was perfectly at home in tl
presence, of the Governor of Soul
Carolina, Hon. John Gary Evans an
other celebrities, both men and w<
men who were presnt. Later in th
day she was unanimously electt
state chairman of the Woman Voter
League, nominated for that office b
Mrs. J. L. Mims of Edgefield.
Mrs: Kate Kernaghan of Edgefiel
was also there assisting the Y. W. C
A. of Columbia in their serving of
?delightful dinner to the conventior
[The organization in the cities of th
Y. W. C. A. is under the patronag
J largely of the wealthy and influentia
women ,and it is considered an hon
or to be selected on their board o
management. Mrs. Pope Matthews i
intedested in the Y. W. C. A., am
her mother, Mrs. Kernaghan wa
there in cooperation with her.
Other distinguished guests werf
Hon. and Mrs. John Gary Evans, wh<
have just returned from Europe. Mr
Evans made a very interesting anc
instructive address to the conventior
on the importance of registering anc
enrolling in the Democrat!'' 'ubs, anc
being represented in county anc
state Democratic** conventions. He
stated that the law required that a
man and a woman represent the va
rious states as national. Democratic
committeemen. He said that the pro
gram ^as carried out by the Woman
Voters' League convention, the sub
jects they discussed, their intelli
gent plans of procedure, their sense
of justice were significant and with
out precedent. That in all the history
of the centuries such groups had nev
er before met for the unselfish a?id
earnest study of citizenshpi.
Mrs. John Gary Evans was present
as a member and one of the officers
and generous supporters of the
League, having been a friend in need
when the work was friendless and
persecuted. It is not so now. The wo
men fire no longer supplicants, except
as they use their increased power to
make the world more homelike for
all people, moi-e responsive to the
higher and more, ennobling things of
We can not speak of all the great
speeches and subjects which were dis
cussed, but if all the things are done,
and they will be done, this world will
be a safer and happuier place to live.

Health, spoke of health conditions,

gave some practical illustrations of
what good women and good men -co
operating can do and have done for
their communities, for the women do
not hope to accomplish anything
without the help of the good men.
One of the most conspicuous fig
ures in the way of popularity in con
vention was a lady whom the presid
ing officer, Mrs. F. S. Munsall, intro
duced as E. A. D., and those in the
convention who did not know her,
argued .themselves unknown. It
means Enthusiastic and Distinguish
ed. In other words Mrs. W. L. Duno
vant of Edgefield, was loudly, no not
so loudly, for women ?re gentle, but
melodiously cheered, as she arose to
make her publicity report and her
address oh organization. Mrs. Dtino
varit is highly esteemed and greatly
valued by the organization, for three
characteristics, her willingness to

registration books to different points
in the county was being discussed as
