IN A LETTER TO CHESTER COUNTY CITIZEN SENATOR
TILLMAN ADVOCATES STATE WAREHOUSE SYSTEM
AND DOUBTS IF STATE CAN LEGALLY RESTRICT
THE ENORMOUS COTTON CROP.
The following letter was sent The Intelligencer by Senator. J? ill
man, a copy qf Yr. Collin's letter was not enclosed but its contents
can be pretty well guessed by a careful reading of the reply.
The letfci follows:
Trenton, >S. C.,
October 9, 1914.
Mr. J. T. Collins.
Chester, S. C.
My Dear Sir:
Yours of October 5th received. I realize your condition per
fectly and sympathize willi the farmers who owe you. 1 do not
<now what to suggest or how to help our fellow-citizens who axe in
this predictament. Sad to say there are very many of them, in dis
tress. 1 am hoping that the legislature will enact, a law promptly
providing for a sensible Warehouse scheme and that the.state will get
behind its own citizens with its credit, by voting, a Constitutional
amendment to increase the public debt for this purpose. Possessing
<he power of taxation as it does, there is absolutely no reason why it
should not do this. Until South Carolina and other Southern .states
show their willingness to back tlieir own people it is idle to expect the
national government to do it. ? believe the state; Supreme* Court
would declare a proper warehouse law constitutional, .provided the
people at the next election vote to increase the public debt for that
purpose. The legislature can act immediately and as the election
comes off in November everything could be satisfactorily adjusted
in, this way. South Carolina can thus save its.own citizens Whether
other southern States do or not. I doubt very seriously however,
whether any law looking to the decrease of acreage . ok forbidding
the planting of any cqtion at all will stand thtf1 test'of coiistitution
ality. It is worth trying however.
; I myself expect to sow all the oats I can get in/th?j^round and
wilt fertilize them well with cotton seed meal- and acidi phosphate, two
home products. The land may wait for potash until the Germans
are licked. Luckily most of the land in misstate ha's e#ongh:potash
in it already to make one-: or two crops, for it is a mineral which does
not leach out. AU the soils above the falls in our rivers have a nat
ural supply. , ? ; -
I believe the reduction of acreage will settle Jts^elf without 'leg
islation, simply bec?use nobody is able, pr? willing to advance money
qr supplies to. grow, cotton at seven cejnits peppound. It ls like lift
ing one's self over a fence by his boot-straps.,
This European War has certainly hit the South* a; harri blow.
Wc have before seen cotton very low, but ?VerythiriJ? ?jse.'Syas low
then too? Now everything we have to eat/especWly.meijt'arid flour,
is very high, and the cost of growing cotton is probably;double what
it was in 1890. . ;vv?Ui<, ^. ;^
; 1 see no reason why the nationargov^rbmerityab^* hot Hasten
getting the National Reserve Banks in condi^Pni'to J^eginVoperation.
We have heard for a long while that the maChlrierY-would begin ti?
move on October 1st. The national goVerhtfieHt?tould recognize
wuretiiiua? ieL&rpirasguu'd tmTl[fcTat,g?TO^^ co, -pTcf
vided the states first take sensible action in regard to this, matter. I
do not think Uncle Sam will, or ought to be expected to c?me to our
help until we have exhausted all of our own resources and have done
those things which are necessary. There, never was' a 4ime when
thc old adage, "God helps those who help thems.elY?s",was inore ap
plicable and had more truth. If the people; ofutte. Sjate. demand a
s?nsible and practicable law, the Legislature wilt'enact it, and the
Governor.will sign it too. ; '
Our home banks, if they would only ceasp being, greedy hogs
iind do their duty towards the peonlo could get us ill out of the wil
derness. It is preposterous and criminal for. those'banks to draw
money from the United States Government aral per cent interest
"to assist the farmers in marketing their cotton ?r?p" and then give
if to merchants and manufacturers, and then if sprite few farmers are
fortunate enough to" be able to put up the proper collateral charge
them 6 per cent and 8 percent. Secretary' M?Adoo has the ma
chinery already started in motion to print all thumper money necesr
sary and will issue it to the banks on proper collateral. Congress
has already discharged its duty far better than em state legislatures.
!n fact the President and the Secretary of the Treasury dare not do
more than they have already proposed to do. /
There are certain things the national government can do and
ought to do, but as usual there are demagogs artorig our public men
who are making wild proposals. Such men ari public enemies and
ought to be "sat on." ? . . -
Let the State Legislature do its duty and/the national govern
ment may be depended on to perform it. Weean stem the tide if
we all work together, but many wild and. impracticable schemes
ought to be abandoned promptly and. riot talked about longer. Ac
tion is what is needed and not so many words./ fe '
Very truly y out
