A RATHER XARROW VIEW.
John L. McLaurin and Cole. L. j
Blease were the principal speakers at
the "Farmers Secret Association" of j
Kershaw county a few days ago. Al- j
tksvivorVi it wac whisnered about that a I
rCAAV/U^U. JL C "
farmers' organization of a "secret*' i
nature was being formed, not much j
publicity was given to the fact. It
was declared at the time that the association
was non-political. When McLaurin
and Blease made addresses at
one of the meetings of the association
it strikes us that they let the cat out
of the bag.?Greenville News. 1
That is rather a narrow view, it
seems to us. Why could not McLaurin
and Blease make speeches without
there being politics in the organiza
tion of the famers. Besides, if there
is politics, why not?
If Sam iW'olfe of Anderson will introduce
a bill in the next general assembly,
along with his seven or eight
hundred others, prohobiting any houswife
in this state from making turkey j
has'n we promise to go to Anderson j
and vote for him next summer?York

what are you talking about? Don't j
you know that the hash that these
goochwomen make is the best part of!
the turkey? We've got enough prohi-j
r bition already without even suggesting
to any one to prohibit turkey hash.
But we would not be at all surprised
to find some introducer of bills under+/ *.

thing because some of the otherwise

A Newberry banker announces that
lie is going to lend money to all his
bank's customer at 7 per cent. The
trouble about that sort of thing is that
it is not contagious.?Anderson Intelligencer.
(What d'yer mean by that? This
i -bank has just seen the light in the
p distance and is getting ready for it.
The light is the legal rate fixed in this
state at 6 per cent. It is coming pretty

is included in the six or seven hun.
dred bills that Mr. Wolfe of Anderson
^ is preparing to inflict upon the approaching
session of the legislature.
It would be a good one for him to include.
Interest charges are too high
in this state, and they are sure to be
J ' ^reduced by the legislature some time
K" In the near future.
Then that 10 per cent attorney'* fee j
in all notes should be cut out or modi- (
tied. The trouble has been that the!
lender has had the borrower entirely ;
at his mercy for many years, but the i
time is soon coming when it will be j
the other way?or rather that will be !
the rule, for there always will be those
who will want to borrow, and borrow
j at any old price. Even this fall the
i banks in this good town of Newberry
have been advertising that they had
money to lend, when last fall you had I
to beg them to let you nave it on the
very best of collateral.
We hope the time will soon come!
I when the business of the country will!
be conducted on a cash basis. Credit i
has been the ruin of many people.
THE IDEAL IS ALL RIGHT.
But a few days yet remain before '
the South Carolina general assembly j
con\enes and we want to say again !
that the members of South Carolina's |
law-making body will do well if they [
devote more attention to plans for en-;
forcing the laws we already have,
rather than to the making of new ones.
We advanced this same, idea some,
' weeks asro and were ridiculed for it;
I from certain sources, but we still be-1
j lieve it to be the right thing. Half th*j

outlines UJ. UiJlb n c na>c occu iv .
introduced in ine next session appear i
to us as nonsensical and unnecessary,
and every indication is that we will
see a repetition of what has gone on
i for years before.?York News.
Your idea is all right, and yet you!
j will find in each legislature from S00 ;
to 3,200 bills presented, many of which, j
of course, are never passed, and some-;
times they are not pressed by the au
thors. But you are correct that it
would be more profitable to have some
of the laws enforced rather than to'
pass more laws. And, in fact, we be- j
lieve that if some of the laws now on j
the books were enforced there would
soon be a howl to have some of them
If this legislature should create
many more departments of govern
ment and increase expenses as
j it did at the last session, the
taxes will be so high that it will
be unprofitable to own any property,
and the state will have to take it over
and let all of us work for the gov
But there will be others in the legislature
besides /Mr. Wolfe of Anderson
to present new bills, and the calendars
will be crowded, and some foolish laws
will be the result. It always has been
thus and will likely continue to the
end. So, we just as well console our
souls in patience and take wiiat we
get, an^square the accounts next summer
when the people will have their
inning at the bat.
Congressman Lever has named exSheriff
Wm. Coleman for the postmastership
at Columbia, and as Mr. Lever
says, Mr. Coleman is a mighty fine fellow,
and no better selection could have
been made. We congratulate Mr. Lever
as well as >Ir. Coleman.
THE STATE WAREHOUSE.
We can understand now from the
correspondence between Mr. Cathcart
and iMr. McLaurin in the Columbia
Record why the insurance trust is
fighting the state warehouse system,
but we can not understand why this
fight should not make the system so
much the stronger with the people. A
reduction in insurance from "$2.50,
short term cancellation, to $1.50 pro
rata," should make the system very
ooDular with the people. And then it j
is stated that the country rate was
S3.50 and now ic is $1.58 pro rata. And
besides, it h not questioned that it is
(juc to*the warehouse system that the
farmer, even the one-bale farmer, has
been able to borrow money on his cottc
11 warehouse receipt at a rate of 6
per cent. It stems to us that every
farmer in Sout'n Carolina ought to enter
a most (Vigorous protest against any
effort that would be made to cripple

Lll*0 uu|;ui ... v. ^ ?
*Arnen before liave the farmers "been
able to get money on their cotton
warehouse receipts so easy at so low
a rate of interest? We do hot recall
the time. Why should any one oppose
any movement that had proved such a
benefit to the cotton producer?
In the fall of 1914 the banks wouldn't j
look at a coiion warenouse receipt
even at any old rate of int/rest. This
past fall they "were advertising to lend
all tne money ;on wanted -at 6 per
cent on the ieoe;;>t. Some fellow will I
b r?ady ?o say it wasn't the warehouse
system, it was the federal reserve !

here in 1914. Tlu n it must be remem- j
bered that a member of the federal re- 1
serve bank commended the warehouse I

I valuation of his cotton. We do not:
J believe that the legislature will dare:
'abolish the system or even attempt to
j cripple it. but on the other hand will
trv to strengthen it.
We will be frank to say that the sysI
did not appeal to us at first, and we
were not in favor of it, but when we :
* ? - ^ J Kaoti wo mnct 1

admit that in our opinion it has saved i
the situation in this state so far as;
the handling of the cotton crop is con- j
cerned for the benefit of the producer. I
(Then why try to kill it or join forces
with those whose interests are against'
the producer. We shall be surprised j
if there is not a great protest from the j
farmers of the state if there is any ;
effort to cripple the institution made at ,
the approaching session of the legis-'
There are some recent measures;
passed by this legislature that it would ,
be well for the numbers to kill, and:
the people would be benefited.
We notice from reading one of our :
exchanges in the Third district that :
Congressman Aiken has written a letter
in which he uses some very ugly
words. A congressman should set a
? Avomnio than to descend to the
use of epithets that are not compli-1
mentary. In other words, no matter j
what the other fellow does, a man who,
represents so great a district as this j
should be more c'noice in the use of
the language by which he expresses
himself, and especially in the news-;
papers. In fact, we have come to the j
conclusion that it is not right for any}
editor to permit the columns of his;
paper to be used as a sewer for any
one, and if a fellow feels like he wants j
to call some one else names let him go j
to that some one and tell him what he j
wants to say.
We wish to commend the suggestion j
of our local contemporary t'nat the
board of trade or the chamber of commerce
be revived. We know of nothing
Gaffney needs more than a little
united effort on the part of her citizens.
If we will but pull together as we
should for the next few years we will
be able to accomplish something to- J
ward building a city.?Gaffney Ledger.
Which reminds us to say that Xew*

berry has naa uei uvai va w-. , ,
chamber of commerce and business
league, but all have passed into history,
and now in the beginning of this
good year 1916 it would be a good thing
for the business of the community and
the progress and development and
growth of the city to have some sort
of business organization among the
business men. Why not organize for
the good of'the community? It would
be a good thing. j

LUNGS OF A BATTLESHIP, j
Ventilation Is a Serious Problem In !
Building War Vessels.
One of the most difficult problems in j
building a battleship is to secure satis*
factory ventilation. She is a very com- I
plicated creature, made up of so many J
steel boxes, large and small, for the J
accommodation of officers, men, coal, !
ammunition and stores, dotted here
and there with so many steel ladders,
nntnmntif lifts, steel bulkheads and
water tight doors, varied here and there !
by miles of electric wires belonging to j
iights. telephones, bells and motors, to !
say nothing of the endless mileage of '
pipes for flooding, draining, pumping, j
fresh water, fresh air or compressed
air and speaking tubes.
First in importance comes the ventilating
of the boiler and engine rooms.
When you begin to think of gangs of
coal black demons working away in
the bowels of the ship at a temperature
of 120 degrees; when, too, you
commence to realize that unless the
furnaces receive their required draft

low that of her ?isters in the squad- |
ron, you appreciate the importance of }
the steam driven fans to the furnaces j
and boiler rooms. The supply of air
comes down through large water tight,
trunks, which are continued right up to \
the weather deck, armored gratings!
being provided at the protective deck.
For ventilating engine rooms large
electric fans are employed. So, too,
the coal bunkers have to be ventilated,
owing to the gas which the coal gives
off. This gas when mixed with air
forms an explosive, so in oruer 10 pre-1
vent the possibility of injury to men \
or ship supply and exhaust pipes are
fitted in such a manner as to cause
a current of air.?Pearson's Weekly.
