REV. S. A. NETTLES MAKES
PROPOSITION ON HOTEL
Dover, N. C., Nov. 11, 1922.
Mr. Isaac Appelt,
Manning, S. C.
I unierstand that some of the
stockholders of the Manning Hotel
Company are saying that I did not
act fail'ly in purchasing the mortgage
on the property. They certainly do
not understand the facts.
When default in payment was made
I waited about a year before proceed
ing, and then only after the president
of the company assured me that he
saw no probability of the company
ever paying me and advised me to
Before the mortgage sale was
made, I stated to a number of per
sons in Manning that any one who
bid to the amount dcue me would get
the property. My attorney was in
structed to bid no more than the
amount to cover my claims. After
the saie I repeated the same offer for
six months. I did not want any hotel
property. But then was the property
uncompleted, exposed to the elements,
and expenses piling up. So last July
a contract was made to finish the
building, and I am informed that it
is completed, and that it will, furnish
Manning one of the most complete
hotels in any of the smaller towns of
Now, to assure you and all the oth
er stockholders that I wish to be ab
solutely fair, I mlake them, or any of
them, the following offer, which holds
good to December 1, 1922:
Upon payment of $500 I will give
a thirty day's option to sell the pro
perty for exactly what it stands me
in. The only payment made me on
the mortgage was the interest for the
first six months. My offer then must
pay following: Mortgage, $20,000;
accumulated interest to Jan. 1, 1923;
expenses incidental to foreclosure; in
surance, taxes, etc., I have paid; ex
penses incidental to finishing of the
hotel; and any other expenses actually
incurred, and at this writing I do not
recall anly. In other words, my offer
permits the stockholders to reposses
the property upon complying with the
conditions as stated in this mortgage
to me, and in addition paying for cost
of completing the hotel according to
their plans. The hotel was completed
unler direction of their architect and
his plans. The stockholders will get.
the benefit of the $500 cash payment
made me and of whatever amount the
company expended onl the building be
fore becoming insolvent. -I am not
asking a cent of profit on account of
this misfortune---only that I he paid
what the mortgage calls for and what
I have expended in completing the

Seoul, Kora, Nov. 20.-(By the As

condition of the '7,000 Itussian r9fu

to arrivals fron there. Those ashore
sleep on the bare ground or under
clapboard sheds while the crowding
aboard the ships in the aihir is rem

old galley slave days and the Aus
tralian convict hulks. Aboard the El
Dorado, an old 1,200 ton vessel, more
than 1,000 men are herded. They
sleep seven men to the birth taking
two hour turns at lying down.
At Gensan the severerly wounded
among'the Valdivostok exile, are seg
regated, but the convalescent and ail

sanitary arrangements are so inade

FOR PERMANENT RELIEF
Washington, Nov. 20.-The Asso
ciation of Owners of Railroad Secur
ities renewed its efforts today to have
the Interstate Commerce Commission
take steps toward establishment of
permanent relief from railway car
shortages. In a letter to Commission
er Atchison, commissioner of the car
service division, of the commission,
S. Davies Warfield, the association's
president, declared that so long as
present conditions respecting the in
terchange of cars continue, private
operations of the railroads "is endan
The letters adverts to the appli
cation of the Union Pacific to the
commission, asking it to us its
emergency powers to supply that
railroad with cars consistent with
the roads car ownership.
"If additional evidence were re
quired," The Warfield letter says,
"to demonstrate the inadequacy of
present railroad methods in respect
to interchange of car equipment
and the necessity of the pooling of
interchange freight cars, the appli
cation of the Union Pacific sup
lilies it, being unwilling to entirely
rely on the competency of the rail
roal's own agency to supply cars."
