Th? Effect of Usury Lawi.
In introducing a bill to repeal the law of
1866, which repealed the usury .laws of the
State, Mr. Wilkes, of Anderson, desires, we
presume, to enable the farmers aud plauters
to borrow money ab seven per cent, per an?
num. A purpose so laudable in itself en?
titles Mr. Wilkes to the thanks of the agri?
cultural interest, but wo think that it is not
difficult to demonstrate that he threatens to
kill his friends with kindness, and that to
restore the usury laws to the statute book,
wheu one per cent, a month upon stock col?
laterals is a minimum rate, would only make
money dearer as well as more difficult to
Adam Smith did, it is true, approve of the
principle of fixing a legal limit to the rate of
interest, and making the receipt of more
limn tiie appointed maximum a penal ofleuce.
But, as is stated by Mr. John Stuart Mil!, in
his work on Political Economy; this restric?
tion is condemned by all enlightened persons,
since the triumphant onslaught made upon
it by Bentham in his "Letters on Usury,"
which may still be referred to as the best
extant writing on the subject.
As n matter of policy, the notion may pos?
sibly be that it is for the general good that
interest should be low. lt is, however,' a
misapprehension of the causes which inilu
nnce commercial transactions to suppose
'that the rato of interest is really made lower
by law thud it would be made by the spon?
taneous play of suppl}- and demand. No
borrower pays twelve percent, when lie can
got what he wants at seveuor at ten. 'It is
his business to borrow at the lowest market
price, and if the competition of borrowers,
left unrestrained, would raise the rate of in?
terest to twelve per cent., this proves that
at seven or ten per cent, there would be a
greater demand for loans than there is capi?
tal in the market to suppl}'. If the law, in
these circumstances, permits no interest be?
yond seven per cent., or even ten por cent.,
there will be some lenders, who, not choosing
to disobey the luw, and not being in a con?
dition to employ their capital otherwise, will
content themselves with the legal rate; but
others, in Mr. Mill's words,, liuding that in a
season of pressing demand more may be
made by their capital by other means than
they are permitted to make by lending it,
will ?wt lend il at all; and the loanable capi?
tal, already loo small for the demand, will
be. still further diminished. Of the disap?
pointed candidates there will be manyat
such periods who must have their necessii?es
supplied at any price, and these will readily
find a third section of lenders, who will not
be averse to join in ? Violation of Hie law,
either by circuitous transactions, partaking
of the nal tire of fraud, or by relying on the
honor of the borrower. The extra expense
of the roundabout mode of proceeding, and
an equivalent for thc risk of non-payment
and of legal penalties, must be paid by the
borrower, over and above the extra'interest
which would have been required of him by
the general state of the market. This brings
Mr. Mill to his conclusion, that "the laws
" which jvere intended to lower the price
" paid by the borrower for pecuniary accom
" modulion* end thus in greatly increasing
' Usury laws have also a directly demoral
' izing tendency. Knowing the difficnlty of
detecting an illegal pecuniary trans-ictiou
between two persons, in which no third per?
son is involved, so loDg as it is to the inte?
rest . of both to keep the secret, legislators
have adopted the expedient of tempting the
borrower to become the informer, by making
the annulment of the debt a part of the pen?
alty for the offence: thus rewarding men for
obtaining the property of others by false
promises, and then not only refusing pay- 1
ment, but invoking legal penalties on those
who have helped them in their need. The
moral sense of mankind very rightly infa?
mizes those who resist an otherwise just
claim on the ground of usury, aud tolerates
such a plea only when resorted to as the best
legal defence available, against an attempt
really considered as partaking of frand or
jaxtortion? But this very, severity of public
'opinion renders the ent?rcement- of the laws
so difficult, and the inflictor!' pf the penalties
so rare, that when it does occur, it merely
victimizes an individual, and bas no eflect
on general practice.
In eo far aa the motive of a usury law may
be supposed to be, not public policy, but re?
gard for the interests of the borrower, it
would bo difficult to point out any case in
which such tenderness on the legislator's
part is more misplaced. A person of sane
mind, and of full age, must be presumed to
be a sufficient guardian of his own interests.
If he may buy lands, or grant a release, or
assign away bis^property, or vote for the
election of Mr. Wilkes and his colleagues,
without control from the law, it seems very
unnecessary that the only bargain which he
cannot make without its intermeddling
should be a loan of money. There is no
truth in the presumption that the money?
lender, dealing with necessitous persons,
can take advantage of their necessities, and
exact conditions limited only by bis own
pleasure. It might be so if there were only
OD6 money-lender within reach'. But where
there is the whole monied capital of a com?
munity to resort to, no borrower is placed
under any disadvantage in the market
merely by the urgency of bis need. If he
cannot borrow at the interest paid by other
people, it is because he cannot give an
equally good security, and competition will
limit the extra rate to a fair equivalent for
the risk of his proving insolvent. Though
the law inteuds favor to the borrower, it is
to him, above all, that injustice is, in this
case, done by it. What can be more unjust
than that a man who can give perfectly good
security, should be prevented from borrow?
ing of persons who are willing to lend him
money at what it is worth to them and
worth to him ? What is more unreasonable
than that a person who cannot give perfect?
ly good security, should be debarred from
borrowing of persons who were willing to
lend money to him If the law permitted them
to receive the rate of interest wbich would
be a just equivalent for their risk ? Through
the mistaken kindness of the law, he must
either go without the money, wbich is per?
haps necessary to save bim from much
greater losse3, or be driven to expedients of
a far more ruinous description, which the
law bas not happened to interdict.
This, in brief, is the argument of Mr. Mill
upon the subject of usury laws, and it is
conlirtned by the experience of every practi?
cal business man in the country. No law
can force a man to lend at seven per cent
money which is in demand at ten and twelve.
Such a law drives capital away, so that it
may find employment in other places at its
full market value. And the money which
remains is lent at higher rates than would
i prevail if no usury law were upon the stat?
ute book. We undertake to say that to-day,
other things being equal, money is dearer in
Georgia than in South Carolina. Thc reason
is plain. In this State, at present, the value
of money i3 regulated by I he call for it;
while in Georgia, where a U3ury law exists,
the borrower pays the full legal rate and a
commission, which, with the legal rate,
amounts, in general, to rather moro than
would have to be paid in Charleston. The ex?
tra risk justifies the additional rate.
We have endeavored to explain the prin?
ciples which govern this highly important
matter of the market value of mouey, and
wo trust that the mercantile community,
borrowers as well as lenders, will, through
the proper chan nels, represent to the General
Assembly the injury which will undoubtedly
be done the people by .the revival of thc
usury laws. The motives of Mr. Wilkes are,
doubtless, very praiseworthy, but the bill
which he has introduced will only muke
money harder to obtain, and will certainly
increase the price to be paid for its uso by
those who are forced by circumstances to be
either regular ur occasional borrowers.
The Expedition io Ijiiufeusvillc.
We are told that the United States soldiers
who made the arrests in Laurens are thor?
oughly ashamed of the whole business. One
thousand men, with wagons and, wo believe,
artillen-, are marched to Lauronsville under
tho impression that the whole country is
tilled with anned insurgents ; that thc town
is fortified, and that there will be a desper?
ate light before the ringleaders ure captured.
They divide their force, surround the unsus?
pecting Laurensville, and then lind that the
whole- county is as still as death, iinji that
thc insurrection and rioting exists.only in
the crazed brain of Colonel Joseph Crews.
The gentlemen for whom lhere are warrants
deliver themselves up without a murmur, as
they would have done bad the warrauts been
presented by an unprotected sherill'. Taking
with them eleven unarmed citizens, the one
thousand regulars return to Columbia, while
th? people remember that the expedition
cost? the government somewhere in the
neighborhood of ten thousand dollars. How
President Grant and Secretary Belknap will
bless Joe Crews!
A Oood Opportunity.
General Scott has said that Trial Justices
should be educated and intelligent men. We
a3k whether Trial Justice Johnson, of Spar
tauburg, who issues the following summons,
should be allowed to retain his position one
hour longer? The summons, as printed in
the Spartan, reads :
