"II. A I." ON THU KA lt M.
During the last two or Hirer years
there lias been much discussion with
reference to "land loan hank.-" plan
ned on thc system in ICtiropean coun
try. These ure in fact nothing more
nor less than building and loan . (im
punies, ami it wi- had in the I'll it ed
Slates a building and loan plan for
fiuuiicitig tie- flinns. Un- country
would be a great dial better oil than
il is, just a* tia- building and loan
notably Charlotte, N. c.
Mr. D. A Tompkins, ot Charlotte,
who ls ?me of tin- greatest bell?-vers in
tlu> building ami loan plan tor cities,
bas declared bis advocacy ol the
building ami, thuin plan for fat ms.
After pointing out thal lb? people
henelitted in the towns an- th?- clerks
and tin- mechanics, and their purpose
ls to save money anil build, lie con
cludes thai with proper encourage
ment the purpose of the tenant farm
ers would be to save money and lo
buy ami improve farms.
How many farms then- are in Hie
stat?? of South Carolina Unit are earn
ing nothing lu-cause then' is no way
to Induce tenants to occupy the tall
inn down cabins and the owners of
Hu- farms ?in- unable to build new
tenant houses! These and other such
deplorable conditions might be reme
There is absolutely no legislation
necessary to start one of these insti
tutions, writes Mr. Tompkins. Killy
farmers lu the country can organize
any time, and without any further
law than a clerk of the court charter.
They can either have a secretary and
treasurer of their own or they can get
some banking institution in town to
keep their books for them. The mem
bers of these societies save their
money and then loan il to their mem
bers as they need lt, precisely as Hie
building and loan does with its mem
bers. The building and loan might
be called a "?-aVings and building as
sociations." These farmer land loan
hanks might equally be called "sav
ings and farm Improvement associa
tions." Some European governments,
after the furmers" banks succeeded
wonderfully, have aprpoprlated some
sums of money to loan through these
Institutions. Hut this is a semblan
for politics sake. The real work of
the land loan bank is like Hie work of
our building and loan association, not
in the least aided bv government at
There would be an advantage In
dealing with some commercial bank,
In that they could get money on short
loans through the bunk to loan to
members until they look in enough
money of their own to loan. There
fore, there ls nothing in the world
necessary to be done except for '20. :10
or 50 furmers to organize a land loan
credit society and make their ar
rangements to have their books and
money kept and then go ahead.
Perhaps some day some enterpris
ing farmers and a good enterprising
bank will get together ou this subject
and start the ball in motion. The
building and loan associations gener
ally have about 700,000.000 of accum
ulated money. This ls the money of
the clerks and mechanics aggregated
throughout Hie country. If the farm
ers bad $700,000,000 accumulated it
would make u vast difference to the
agricultural Interests of this country.
It ls private citizen Leo G. Holle
man today. He is a citizen of whom
this city should be proud, for the
whole state of South Carolina knows
him and is proud of him. He has
made a good record ns mayor, and
bud he been less of a mau and more
of a politician he -would be acclaimed
even more enthusiastically than he
He has been honorable nnd manly
In the discharge of his duties; he has
loved the city and Us Interests; he
has been Immovable when once his
mind was made up as to the proper
thing to do for the good of the com
munity. He has tired of tho cares
and responsibilities and thankless
ness of tho work, and has been glad
to relinquish the burden.
Mayor Godfrey will give the city a
good administration. Ile is well pre
pared for the duties of the otllee. His
long training in the newspaper field
in addition to hts more definite train
ing lu tho otllee of city clerk give bimi
tho foundation upon which to make
his administration active, progressive
and successful. This paper will be
found supporting every progressive
move of the new council and will do
so with earnestness and pleasure, and
we would like to see all of the
citizens of Anderson cooperate with
Mayor Godfrey and tho new council.
The new aldermen, some of them
not new to the service, will give a
good account of themselves, we feel
quito sure. Messrs. Harton, Carter
and Spearman have served In '-nundi
before ?nd the now members. Messrs.
King. Tate and Dobbins, aro success
ful and active young business men.
This present city council hn-s an op
portunity. Wo hope that lt will have
the vision to appreciate the future to
the fullest, and we believe that the
greatest era of prosperity and devel
opment of Anderson is nt hand. It
can come only by cooperation. We
trust that tho city council, the cham
ber of commerce and the civicasso
clatlon and the newspapers and all
citizens of Anderson will stand to
gether fi" right and progress and the
making <>i u bigger ?uni butter and
mon- beautiful city.
