Kcjraniiiur Nomination For Columbia
Ihe Stale, 27th. |
Representative Lever reached Co-j
lumbia frcm Washington yesterday. It j
is intimated that he has ccme to take I
a final look over the situation in Columbia
before making his recommendation
to the president as to tne postmastership.
As to this he would sa\
"I presume I shall hear something
of the postmastership for Columbia in
my short stay in the city. Those who
4.v :?i. + tno narvnltar iov of
LiUiiK 10 ?
the congressman are badly mistaken.
I have found it a burden and an aggravation
to be borne philosophically
rather than to be sought after as an
element of strength."
Representative Lever, since the first
week in November, has been engaged
with the joint committee of the house
and senate, on which he is one of the
house appointees, in an effort to devise
a workable plan of rural credits for the
country. The particular phase of the
rural credits subject with, which Mr.
Lever's sub-committee has had to do
is that of farm land credits. The subcommittee
substantia'; ly agreed last
Friday to a bill which will go before
the full committee one week from today.
Rural Credits Legislation.
" My work on the joint committee
since early in November has been exacting,
but I have found it inten sting,"
Mr. Lever said. "That legislation
which will enable the farmer to
borrow money at a low rate of interest,
the principal repayable in in
stallments, is an absolute necessity, is j
proved by the overwhelming testimony
of all students of farm economics, as
well as by study of the results of European
systems, some of which have
been in operations && long as 150
"The bill which will be laid before
the full committee provides for a well
worked out plan, nationwide in its
scope, for farm mortgage credits under
strict federal supervision. The!
management of the 12 district land!
banks, capitalized at $500,000 each, J
this stock to be subscribed out of funds !
in tfce treasury of ihe United States,!
unless otherwise subscribed within 90 j
days from tfte passage 01 me ac^, wuij
t>e under the direction of a federal j
farm lean board, appointed by the |
president of the United States. The f
initikl capital stock of the 12 banks i
w ill amount to $6,000,000, with im- j
mediate loaning capacity of $120,000,-!
000, which will be increased in the
ratio of 20 to 1 as borrowers come into
"These regional banks will do business
with local associations of farm
borrowers, organizing under federal I
charters, and all applications for loans j
are approved and recommended by j
such local organizations to the land !
bank. The rate of interest to the
farmer will be the interest at which
the bonds will sell in tile open market,
plus 1 per cent. It is thought tha'.
the security back of the bonds has
ieen made so strict that such bonds
"will readily sell at- 4 per cent, probably
less, and this means that the interest
charged to the farmer would
be in the neighborhood of 5 per cent.
The amount which the farmer is to
pay upon the principal each year is
left optional with the borrower, except!

is fixed at 36 years. Provision is mad?
permitting land banks to accept time
deposits and in certain exigencies to
operate through special agencies. Such
time deposits may be loaned on shor
time mortgages. !
Talks of -Preparedness.''
"We have attempted to adapt to the
needs and conditions of this country
the best features of the best European
systems of rural credits and I believe
that the legislation which will finally
result from cur efforts will provide u
plan which will be both practical in
operaiion and of immense benefit in results;
while the country is in a furor
over the proposition of military preparedness,
it is well for some of us
at least not to overlook the matter of
industrial, commercial and especially
agricultural preparedness. These are
;as necessary to the national defense
-as are standing armies and formidable
-'What do you think of the presi
denrs program of preparedness?" Mr.
'.Lever was asked. "Oh, I suppose that
<cangress will authorize a considerable
increase in the army and navy," he
said, "as well as an increase for coast
defense, but congress is by no means
unanimous on the proposition. Those
who have to provide ^e means of
raising the taxes to care for the additional
expense imposed by this program
have the task of a full grown
man upon their hands. Internal dircct

something over $200,000,000 of these
bonds which might be sold and thii j
would go a long way in providing for;
the additional expense for preparedness.
I belie, e, too, that the income
tax law can be modified in such a way
as to provide for a larger revenue,
and I would favor, in addition to this
a federal inheritance tax."
Another Wilson Temi.
"Is there likely to be any opposition
to the nomination of President Wilson?"
Mr. Lever was asked. He answered
promptly: "i: the president
desires the nomination, he can have it f
by the unanimous voice of the convention,
and I am inclined to think
that the country will demand a continuance
of his services during this
crisis through which we are passing."
Mr. Lever will return to Washington
next Monday to be present when
the full committee receives the rural
credits bill from the sub-committee,
and it is understood that he will present
to the full committee several
amendments not agreed upon by the

from this place, Mrs. Bcttie Bullock
writes as fellows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, I could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treatment
relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bcttie of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I commenced
taking it From the very first
dose, I could tell it was helping me I
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing my work."
If you are all run down from womanly
