Blease he bitterly assailed 'Senator i.

secretary of the treasury. Senator ;

of next January, and vho favored '

on white women, is slightly built, ;
with black -hair and mustache.
He was in a gray suit, a broad
brimmed black so.t hat, a very red I
bow tie and a pink striped silk shirt. !
In that shirt was a diamond, screwed '
in tightly. There were diamonds in 1
his cuff links and a ring flashed on a j
finger of his left. hand.
In the top pocket of his coat there .
hung something that looked like a
medal, but oil close observation it
proved to be the key to his apart-;
ment Xo. 551. In the course of the
talk I hau with him he was asked '
bv Mrs. Blease to hasten things as
she was hungry and wanted to go to !
"There's the real governor of.
South Carolina," said Mr. Blease. !
"She's red headed. You know "by
tbat she is governor."
Mrs. Blease smiled and suggested
haste to her husband. He was ask- ed
what he intended doing after his <
form o c ov^vorrmr DYSvirwl 1
VV1 lli UO ? V/X UVA VVt.
"I intend to return to the practice ]
of law," answered the governor.* "To <
the practice of criminal law, wtiich I <
love. But when the next vacancy 1
occurs in the Unit 3d States senate I <
expect to be elected to the place." :
Dictates a Statement.
By that time Mrs. Blease was the <
more anxious for her dinner and the ;
theatre. However, Governor Blease i
had changed his mind, decided to give <
a statement, and dictated the followr ;
"The man whom I opposed for the
senate is called 'Cotton' Smith. He ]
claims that he raised the price in the <
cotton market. On the campaign Tor
his reelection he told the cotton far- ;
mers that if he were reelected he :
would raise the price of cotton to 15 :
cents and that he'd guarantee that
thp United Srates srovprnment nnripr i
the Wilson administration by virtue
o: the currency law, would supply
farmers of South "Carolinla with a
sufficient amount of money to market
their cotton crop or that they could
put it in a cotton warehouse and that
they would be loaned at 12 1-2 cents a
pound sufficient money to meet their \
running obligations. i'
"Of course every sensible man in ,
South Carolina knew that that was a !
lie. Since his reelection cotton has |
gone lower and now he and his Deln- I
ocratic colleague in the United States
senate publicly proclaim that the cot- !
ton farmers need no longer look to '
the national administration for hpln, i
but must depend upon their States. I .
notice even so late as today Senator ;
Simmons, of North Carolina, announced
in a conference of congressmen
and senators from cotton growing
States that the national government

should no longer be deceived but
should know that they need not exl
pect help from that source, which j
shows that Senator Smith was reelected
by false representations and
pretenses, and ^lr. Wilson, who ;
claimed on ~ne stand to oe a soutnerner,
with his son-in-law, Mr. <McAdoo,
admits that they have deceived
the Southern States in this matter,
and now throws them, as every other ;
well-posted man in public life knew ;
would be done, back upon each State ,
to take care of its own interests and !
be the architect of her own fortune.
"it will not take the people long to I
learn who are their real friends. \
President Lincoln once said, 'You may ^
fool all of the people some of t::ej
time, and some of the people all the 1
:ime. but you can'; fool al: of th^
people all of the time.'

the people ot' South Carolina. ;
they will realize that Abraham Lincoln,
whether a great stateman or 1
not. was indeed a prophet.
"In view ot' this condition oi' affairs
I called an extra session of my legis
lature to meet October U, at which (
time I expect it to appoint a com-1
mittee to confer with the legislatures ;
of other cotton growing States for the
purpose o:' passing such laws as will !
give relief. Anil, speakirig :or my .
own State, I think that the only re-!
lief possible to be given is a law pro-1
hibiting the sale of any property, real (
or personal, under lien or mortgage,
within 12 months, and the extension
of the time of the payment of taxes j
for 12 months.*'

Washington, Sept. 21.?A warning1
to national banks which have receiv- !
ed government funds to aid crop moving
or which' have receied emergency j

tate to withdraw government deposits '
from offending banks or to refuse to ;
issue emergency currency to them.
Aside from this warning Mr. Mc- i
Adoo announced there is no reason
for the cotton producer and manu-1
facturer to ieel pessimistic. He ex-;
pressed the belief that there must
soon be an increased demand for cotton
and added: \

the manufacturers throughout the '
South will.quit taking counsel of fear 1
and will go -forward with confidence
the situation will, I beleive, improve (
"Complaints have been made -ao
me," said the secretary's statement,
"that some of the national banks
which are receiving national bank 1
currency are charging excessive rates
of interest on loans, as well as restricting
credits. I have ordered that a ,
careful investigation be made imme- j
"If I discover depositary banks are
refusing to extend legitimate credits,

with them, or for socalled emergency
currenc y issued them, I shall not he* 1
itate to withdraw government funds
irom such banks anj to refuse to issue
emergency currency to banks which I
am convinced are not making use of it
upon reasonable terms for the benefit
of the business community. This
applies not only to national banks in j
the cotton States, but in all other sections
of the country, it must be remembered
that the issuance of this so
called emergency currency rests by
law solely within the discretion of the
secretary of the treasury. I shall not
knowingly exercise that discretion in
favor of any bank or banks which fail
to make use of it at reasonable rates
'"There is no reason, in my opinion,
for thp upssimism which nrevails in
many quarters of the South about cotton.
The assistance which the federal
government is extending to the
banks through the issuance of national
bank currency against notes secured
by cotton warehouse receipts,
has already greatly improved the sit-?
