o THE BOND ISSUE o
lt ,._* .,_ ii_IILJ_m
South Carolina, as a state, ia not
and has not been wealthy. There
are numbers of well-to-do and a few
wealthy men in the Btate, but they are
a minority of the whole people.
Of thc 725,000 white people, at least
300,000 are poor. About 125,000 are
wage earners and tenants and the.
150,000 who live in their own homes
are, for the most part, poor.
The public debt of South Carolina,
however, has been reduced to about
$6,000,000. That is not a large debt.
With a few years of prosperity the
state would be in financial condition
io go forward. It would be possible
to improve our school and college sys
tem rapidly, so that we might hope
to get away from our unenviable place
as the next to thc most illiterate state1
of the forty-eight. It would be pos
sible to build better, roads, to spend
money for tho intelligent protection
of the public health-gradually to
move up abreast of tho more fortunate
commonwealths. One of the great ad
vantages that we should have, in fu
ture, is freedom from a heavy public
If We conclude, however, to Issue
bonds and with them to buy cotton
worth seven cents or less in the open
market, we take thc risk of increasing
the state debt to $25,000,000 or $30.
000,000. We are minded, by the way,
of a small group of men who own
Bharas in cotton mills, worth intrin
sically one hundred cents or more on
the dollar, and they wish tho state,
while issuing bonds, would give them
thirty per cont more than market j
value for their shares. Really, they
have lost millions of dollars in these
shares, but li the state would become
a bidder for them, perhaps their mar
ket price would rapidly rise. Of course
South Carolina's purchase of cotton
might "bull" cotton prices.
In case.the cotton should not be sal
able at ten cents a pound, tha people
would be saddled with ? great debt.
Public debts are seldom paid. A mort
gage on a state is only foreclosed by '
an army wltb big guns. Public debts,
when they mature, are refunded-that |
is, the bonds are renewed. Who be
lieves that a new ten million or twenty
.milinn dollar bond issue would be
paid in ten, in twenty, or in forty
years? To what example of tho pay!
of the principal of such a debt can one
Of courae we can borrow money,
from ourselves, by issuing bonds for
cotton, to recoup the losses on cotton
In 1014-and wo can repeat the pro
cess in 1915, if we choose. For the
time, we sLiiU'^, Ipr doing so, be a
great deal happier. We should simply
spend the proceeds of a mortgage that
our children and ' children's children
would stagger under. The question is,
would the Issue of the bonds and pur
chase .of the cotton at ten cents a
pound make the cotton worth ten
cents a pound?-The State.
