;;.<.'. THE L IEN LAW~
"Wo learn that an effort will bo
made at tho next bitting of tho Log
islnturo to repeal tho Lien Law
and also to reduce tho legal rate of
interest from 8 to ? cents, and make
it a -penitentiary offense to charge
As to tho Lion Law wc seriously
doubt thc wisdom of a repeal in
tho present condition of tho coun
try. It is the cheapest and most
charitable provision for tho assist
ance of tho poor white man with a
family that could be devised. Take
away his chances of obtaining cred
it and you drive him to thc wall.
To make a living ho must have em
ployment that will feed and clotho
his family, and thero is no employ
ment that does this as surely and
j .easily as farming. Drive the poor
from tho farms with high rents and
repeal of the Lien Law and you
will Hood the "country with pnu
; pera and our JU?IB with thieves.

wo should encourage the system of

Tho morcase of production in our
own county the past two years has
proven this, and thero is more home
supplies in the county to-day than
in ton years, and there is more inde
pendence and less fear of want or
As to tho reduction of tho rote
of interest, on loans and credits it
will also have its effect. The hope
that it will drivo tho capital now
invested or looked up in what the
lawyers call "dead pledges" into
building up local enterprises and
giving employment to our idle pop
ulation wo fear is a delusive one.
Then* again, thc man with money
may refuse to loan it, and what is
tho effect? Small enterprises die
"and prosperity is crippled.
lt is to bo hoped our solo ns will
bo careful as to changes in either.
