GOV. EVANS DISCUSSES
Advises Farmers ~o Repeat Perform
ance of 30 Years Ago?Would
Spartanburg, March 21).?Wher
.sked by a reporter for The Herald
'o give his views as to the political
onditions in the nation and the state
Drmer Gov. John Gary Evans relied:
"Is it a condition that confronts
us or is it a mere theory?
"The South Carolina senate seems
.o have regarded our crisis as a mere
.heory and to have dismissed it as
. uch. As a matter of fact, it is a
conditions that confronts us. The farmers
of our state are in a worse
*>iirht financially than they have been
n 50 years. They have seen their
ields ravaged by the boll weevil, the
market for their cotton destroyed and
the;r ability to pay debts reduced to
a minimum. On top of this, the national
government, under Republican
rule, has decreased the money in circulation
over $8 per capita and refuses
in any manner to restore our foreign
market for cotton and cotton
"The money power is again in the
saddle and when such is the case, the
agriculturists, laborers and debt payers
are oppressed and made to suffer.
The Republicans have got back
to 'normalcy' as the president remarked,
and that means, for us,
cheaper cotton, less money, increased
debts and decreased ability to pay.
The South and West have got back
to bankruptcy. What must be done?
T/Mi mp Wp must eet back to
the weapons we used 30 years
Our farmers must be organized in
every state in the union and made tj
'realize the importance of unity of
7>urpose and action. We must commence
.in the state and arrange our
own house before we can expect the
aid of others. The conditions in South
Carolina hate been brought about by
two cooperating factors: (1) the boll
_ Weevil that seeks to prevent us from
raising cotton, and (2) the Republican
party that prevents us from selling
it abroad. Of the two evils, the
Republican is the greater. The people
of Europe are naked and suffering
for the want of American cotton
clothes. Our cotton would be bringing
50 cents per pound if the government
would restore the foreign mar
Only Two Activities
"Every man that lives in the South
must realize that cotton growing and
cotton manufacturing will always be
the predominant industries of our
country. Our prosperity depends upN
xm the price of raw cotton and cot-y"*

I down a demagogue who pleads for
fair treatment by the government of
. the farmer upon whom we are all de- '
pendent. According1 to statistics furnished
by Governor (. ooper, the lan?ij;
owners are now paying: about 70 per j <
cent of the taxes. This burden can
i not be borne much longer and unless j;
[ relief is given, the farmers will soon ; i
become, as their brethren in Europe, j
, the most abject slaves on the face of i ]
the earth. The only way out is to : i
impose a tax on luxuries, credits, in-p
comes, stock and other species of j <
i property that are now escaping their i
ju-t proportion of the burden. The ' <
; farmers must be relieved and at once;;
before it is too late. The homes of j (
. the people should not be taxed unless!!
absolutely necessary. The policy of,?
the true republic is to afford every 's
head of a family a homestead, freest
and unencumbered. We want Ameri-I i
can patriots, and not European peas- c
ants. The failure of the state senate j 1
to pass the jilis, taxintr luxuries and s
a urooer income tax, was inexcusable, j 1
The tax system should be reformed so 1 c
as to place the burden equally upon ; c
all. There are hundreds of men and U
women in the state who are receiving jt
salaries of from $3,000 to $o,000 per J t
annum and who pay no taxes what- j
ewr except a poll tax. Is this fair? 1
The onlv wav to reach them is J i

on the luxuries which they consume. c
I was much interested in reading the a
report (1020) of ihe special iegisla-; s
tive committer on revenue and tuxa- , s
'"ion. written by Senator Marion. I:ir
was a c lear and forcef::! presentation ; I
of the defects of our tax system. The ; c
recommendations for relief were j t
sound and yet the senate refused to j c
adopt it or to do anything to relieve , t
the inequalities therein set forth. j s
Too Many Commissions
"Our state government has evoked i i
into a bureaucracy. We have a mul- ! i
jtitude of boards and commissions and jc
the whole system is wrong. It was j i
responsive to a fad that extended all: n
over the country?commission form ! s
of government. We must sret buck io 1 u
individual responsibility. It is better | o
to have one good man in charge of an : v
cfficc and hold him responsible for its i
conduct than to have a board pf six ; *
or eight with nobody responsible. j]
Take the railroad commission. We|a
started with one and have now got to j
seven. One srood man can do the | ^
work just as efficiently as seven. Have j*
