Southern Hankers Discuss Plans of
Distribution with 3IcAdoo.
Washington, August T.?In the conference
with the Southern bankers
"hprp tndav rhp trpasnrv- ripnarrmpnt
made it plain that the emergency
money to be distributed to help aiove
the crops to be used solely for that
purpose, and not for general business
purposes, and that it must return to
the treasury in a reasonable time.
About $20,000,000 will be sent out by
the treasury to the South and West
To aid in moving the crops in August,
about $10,000,000 in October, that is,
if this much money is needed. It is
understood that the department will
begin calling the money back in December
and will have it all in by
Bankers at Conference.
South Carolina /bankers who attended
the conference with the secretary
and first assistant secretary of the
treasury today were as follows:
From Charleston: President R. G.
Rhett and Vice President W. H.

Bank, of Charleston, and President
J. S. Simonds, of the first National

From Anderson: Wm. A. Hunt.
Eleven bankers were present from
jk Terms of Distribution
I The principal subject of discussion
? was the terms on which distributing
? banks in the South should -lend the
crop-moving money to the smaller
tanks of their section. The visitors
were told that the treasury department
would not name any specific
rate of interest to be charged the
smaller banks, but that it intended to
keep a sharp eye on the situation and
that if any of- the distributing banks
should be caught playing shylock a
note would be made of the fact.
Few of the bankers would* talk for
publication, but most of them expressed
warm approval of the secretary's
acftion. One bank president*
from the far South said that since the
department's announcement the deposits
in his bank had increased a
McAdoo Greatest of Tliem All.
James M. Mcintosh, one of the leadl
ing bankers of Indianapolis, and a
lifelong republican, who is here for
+ pnnferpnnp nf thp rtpnartment with
the Western bank representatives tomorrow,
said that he considered Mr.
McAdoo the greatest secretary of
the treasury the country had ever had
, that McAdoo acted where others only
talked, and that with the passage of
the Glass currency bll and the innovations
which Secretary McAdoo has
^ made in the policy of the treasury deW

George Davis Instantly Killed at
Greenwood Power House.
Greenwood, August 7.?George
Davis, a negro, was instantly killed
yesterday afternoon at the power
.house here when he touched a live
wire carrying 23,000 volts. The negro
was in the small brick transformer
house, where the heavy voltage
from the Savannah River* plant
is reduced to the voltage used on the
local transmission wires. He started
to show Engineer Deadwyler, who
was with him, a place where the
heavy wires had an uninsulated spot,
and in doing so he pointed to the
k place with a piece of wire which he
I held in his hand. Without knowing
[ f it he touched another uninsulatef

To the Farmers of Newberry County:
I urge you to sow a large grain crop
this fall, as it looks now as if the
price of cotton will be lower than we
hoped at one time. We know that we
can grow everything that we need,
. *" grain of all kinds, vetches, clover, alW
falfa, etc., and if we grow cotton as a
surplus crop, we cannot be hurt, lor
it will be our own and we can sell
when prices suit.
Now is your time to lay plans for
vniir <->nvpr crnns. as cotton picking
will soon be on, and you will nave no
time to do anything else. The vetch
crop is the easiest of all the legumes
fto grow, but by all means use inoculation,
as not to use it means failure.
You can grow better grain with
the vetch with it, besides storing
nitrogen in the soil if possible to get,
but if you cannot do so, I can furnish
you blank application for inoculating
material for legumes from the
government I have secured 4,000
jpounds of hairy vetch seed for Sep
! tember delivery aud will give pre!
ference to my demonstrators, and
! then to any farmer that wants them.

The eyes of the vast majority of the j
! people of this country are just now J
j focused upon Secretary of State William
J. Bryan. Since he entered the j
1 Cabinet of President Wilson, the en-1
i tire country has been watching Mr. i
; Brvan, which is but natural, in view ,
of his past record and experiences, J
i having been three times the candidate
of the democratic party for president
and being generally recognized as j
one of tne ablest men in the party j
uiid as the man hiving tie largest |
J personal political following among
the democratic leader? of the entire
country. At this time Secretary
Bryan's attitude toward Mexico and
the course the State department is
! likely to take in dealing with the
I Mexican problem is the question of
most importance and of greatest interest
to the public. The views of j
the press in this connection are be- j
ing freely made known, and some of;
them are worth more than passing j
consideration. The Herald finds an
editorial dealing with this subject in
the Greensboro, X. C., Record, which
is more than ordinarily interesting.
It is as follows:
"Next to President Wilson, the eyes
of the world are upon Secretary
Bryan at this time. Men who have
heard the brilliant orator upon the
platform and have watched his spectacular
career are observing with
minutest care his conduct in the first
executive position he has ever held, i
This is evidenced by the great attention
and notoriety that was given the
statement he recently made in North
Parr-linn tr> thp pffpft that, hp had to
! lecture to supplement his salary.
! Such a statement from the president
| himself would not 'have been more
i generally noticed.
"Just at this time Secretary Bryan
has his hands full of the Mexican
! situation, and his handling of this
delicate problem will be watched with
interest by both Americans anforeigners.
Before the Mexican problem
is settled, there will be questions
of affecting Americans policy
with its possessions, South America
and the Far East. If Secretary Bryan
does not handle these matters with
an approved show of executive ability,
it will mean his end politicaly. On
the other hand, if he masters them,
it will gain for him the confidence
; of a class that has heretofore distrust!
ed him and give him a place in the
j nation that scarcely any man in a
[generation has held.
"The personality of the secretary
i has ever been attractive in the highest;
it has been his lack of administrative
experience that caused people
to mistrust him. Scarcely known in
1S96, by a single speech he won the
democratic nomination and polled the
| largest vote a democrat has ever re
j ceived, over six and a half million, or
: more than 200,000 more than Wilson
received last fall. In fact, each Of the
three times Bryan ran he received
more votes than Wilson in 1912,
| though Wilson was elected and Bryan
each time defeated. O' that famous
Denver speech, Mr. Wilson says in
j his history of the American people
it was wrought not of argument, but
"There are those of Bryan's friends
; who feel very keenly a sort of party
UncrroHtnHo >hnt hp was not nominat

ed at Baltimore, and thus would have
been crystalized the feeling that the
leadership that had been a pillar of
fire by night had become 'a pillar of
cloud by day.' Mr. Bryan would no
doubt have been elected last fall if
nominated, and his friends say he
would have received a larger vote
than President Wilson. He did receive
a larger vote in each of three
other campaigns and there were ti en
fewer voters, so that Mr. Bryan's
percentage of the vote cast is much
better than ?Mr. Wilson's. Mr. Bryan
each time he ran received more than
45 per cent of the popular vote, while
Mr. Wilson got barely more than 40
per cent, of the total vote last fall.
"It was said by Mr. Bryan when the
accepted the portfolio that he would
take temporally Therf- js a fooling
that he is playing part of a deliberate
political game. What his plan
is no one can foresee, and it is
likely that circumstances will shape
the secretary's future actions. We
venture the prediction, however, that
Mr. Bryan will be a candidate beJ
