HAVE YOU BOUGHT A BALE I
Members of the board of directors of
the chamber of commerce as indi
viduals have approved tho plan to
start a campaign here for each person
who can afford it to buy a bale of
cotton at the rate of 10 cents per
pound. The proposition has not been
formally worked out, we understand,
but will be at once, and the Idea is to
have a certain number of bales agreed
upon as this city's quota, and no one*
will be required to live up to the
agreement unlesB the entire number
of bales to be bought it! Blgned up.
However, some of tho business men
have gone ahead buying the cotton on
this basis. B. O. Evans & Co., yes
terday bought and stored two bales
A gentleman from Columbia, who
was here last night stated that the
movement had started with a rush
there and that many bales of cotton
are standing around In the store
What is called a "Buy a Bale" move
ment has been inaugurated in differ
ent sections of tho south and is spread
ing rapidly. According to the plan in
dividuals and business houses buy a
bale or more of cotton at ten cents per
pound and store it for higher prices.
I Only one bale 1b bought from each
person so that the benefits will be
divided between a large number. The
officers and employes of banks are
taking a leading part In the movement,
twenty seven oiheers and employes of
the National Loan and Exchange Bank

Wise Will Not be C
Sam Wilson or Brushy Crock, who
Is here for court week in a farmer of
extensive Interests. There are per
haps as many as a thousand persons
dependent upon him. directly and Indi
rectly, on his farms. Mr. Wilson says
the war is not bothering him or his
neighbori!. He produces all of the
meat and bread that lie needs and re
quires his renters to do the same.
He is one of the most successful far
mers in the whole country, und he
believes in making the soil yield ev
erything to supply the wants of man.
and the surplus is for profit only.
Mr. Wilson patronizes the roller mill
at Easluy and has n loi of flour ground.
S. It. Tims of Piorcotown wus a visi
tor to the city yesterday and he had
an announcement of great interest.
He is overhauling the old TIiub mill on
Six and Twenty and will be prepared
to turn out a barrel and a half of
flour per hour. This farm has" been
tn the possession of the Tims family
tor 110 years, or to be exact, since
the first of the family came to Pierce
town and located on Six and Twenty
In 1780. ,
"Sam" TimB, as his name indicates,
is of Irish descent and he is Iris,,
through and through. Ho loves his
joke und he loves the open life, but he
is a good business man. He raises
hogs, cattle, wheat, corn and a little
bit of cotton. Ho states that while
neighbors plant too much cotton, he
thinks, yet there Ib a lot of wheat
planted, and ho wishes to see them
plant Just about ten times as much
next year. He thinks that no man in
his section of the country ought to
buy anythihg to put on the table.
Coffee and sugar are all that he has to
buy. "Sam TimB' graham flour" has
quite a reputation in Anderson county
and is highly recommended by some
doctors. He has a process of re-grind
ing it. The mill begun operations on
the lOih of August, 1854, 60 years ago,
and has turned out many a barrel of
THE DEBTOBS'S DEBTS
As was stated some time ago, the
banking houses of tho city are ready,
ns they alvays have been, to holp ths
depressed, and will carry over for
another year 60 per cent of the paper
in their vaults, provided some way is
; made to retire 40 por cent.
I With two and one half millions of
dollars of assets in our fields, at preft
1 ent rate of computation, it does seem
that some way could be started to
take care of the poorer people and to
put some money into circulation.
Debts cannot be paid unless there is
Bome money In circulation. Credit
is good in the south, but there is ver?,
little money in actual circulation.
This is due to the IndefiniteneBS of the
future rather than to any actual ap
We have received a letter asking
thot rhote who hold mortgages and

an appeal is absolutely unnecessary.
What the banking housoB of the city
arc working for Is the prosperity and
happiness of all- the people, and not
merely to get all of the money out of
debtors. However, something is due
to the bank which has to borrow the
money and we quotq as interesting at
tlds ''me the following sentence from
"The debtor is bound by honor and
gratitude to pay his past-due debts, or
as much of It as possible.
"There comes times to the money

the ec&i of living touches him as baru

that he proposes to go extensively Into

Columbia State. : ; '''' '
If the plan of A. Mason Glbbes,
president of the Glbbes Machinery
company. Id made effective, the scope
of thG buy-a-bale-of-cotton movement
will be broadened until it embraces
the whole of the United States. Mr.
Glbbes suggested yesterday thr.t busi
ness" men of the South call on their
connections in the .North, East and
West to join the rnovement and help
the cotton growers In tho present
emergency by purchasing ono or more
bales of cotton at a minimum price ot
10 cents per pound.
To further the plan advanced by
Mr. Glbbes, a mass meeting will tie
held today at noon at Craven hall.
Business men, professional men,
farmers and traveling men are invit
ed to be present. It is expected that
the mass meeting today will take
steps to enlist the support of all com
mercial organizations in the South to
widen the scope of tu.i'buy-arbale.of
cotton movement. The men behind
the movement hope that enough cot
ton will be purchased by individuals
and firms at the minimum price of 10
cents a pound, about what, it costs to
grow It, to enable farmers to pay
their most pressing' obligation a and
get in a position to hold a good part
of their crop.
A." Mason Gibbes Was asked last
night by The State for a statement in
regard to his plan.
"My Idea is that every firm In Co
iuinbi". mall circulars to its connec
tions, csking them to buy a bale ot
cotton at 10 cents per pound," said
Mr. Glbbes. "The circulars should
also contain ih? request that the con
nections of Columbia Arms send cir
culars In their turn to their connec
tions, asking them to join the bny
