AT FAIR WANTED
3PL.1URI5 WOULD USE IT AS
Commissioner ( alls on President K.r.
yen and Governor-Elect Manning
The State, 4th.
John Li. McLaurin, State warehouse1
commissioner, \esterday addressed a
'etter to J. X. Kirven of Darlington,
president of.1 the South Carolina Agricultural
and Mechanical society, asking
for permission to use the build;ngs
at the State fair grounds for
cotton storage. A copy of the letter
was sent to Gov-elect Manning.
Following is the letter to President
"The general assemSblyfcas devolved
the duty upon me of putting into operation
a warehouse system giving
'he people the benefit of storing cotton
at cost. The amount provided is
->nly $15,000, which o' course is bare"v
sufficient for the purpose of or'anization.
In this financial emergency,
cheap storage is a paramount
necessity. The rates in many standard
warehouses hane already advanced
to 30 cents a bale, which
v:th hig^ interest rates, makes it
difficult to earn* the surplus cotton
over into 1916.
"Some weeks ago ex-Mayor Gibbes,
in an interview in The State, called
attention to this situation, and said:
'For the storage of cotton at this
tiime the galvanized iron and steel
frame building on the State fair
ground? would afford exceptional
"acilities.' Mr. Gibbes further expressed
the opinion that you 'would
we1 come the opportunity to prove the
value of tne society to the farmers in
time of emergency.'
"It gives me pleasure to offer you
now this opportunity to give th

funds for the fair association J
ever since its organization, and this ^
is a splendid chance to use these ,

Although there is uncertainty re- '
guarding the election in Utah and Xevada,
indications are that tfce new
senate will consist of 55 Democrats,
40 Republicans and one Progressive.
(Senator Reed Smoot, Republican,
of Utah would, not admit defeat, ala
though the latest returns showed that
James M. Movie, Democrat-Progres- .
sive, was leading in the contest.
Senator New lands of Nevada also
seemed in danger of losing has seat
