Taft Speaks in This State.
En route from Savannah and
Augusta to Washington, Presi
dent Taft last weeik addressed
crowds at the railn ay stationTs
in three South Carolina towns
-Florence, Dillon and Sumter.
The president was well received,
and in each instance seemed to
make a hit with those who had
,athered to hear him.
The president touched but
lihti on politics and campaign
issues, his main point at Flor
(ence being that prosperity
should be preserved through
good government. He also t
spoke in opposition to innova- t
tions, in this point apparently s
hitting at Col. Roosevelt -and
his newly propounded theories.
At Sumter Mr. Taft repeated f
his remark, made notable dur- b
ing his visit to the Soutb short- t
1v after his election, that there c
were many in the South who t
voted one way and prayed 9
At Dillon he paid a tribute to 3
the memory of Maj. Archibald v
Butt, who went down with the n
ill-fated Titanic.
Wall Street's Cheap Money. C
Susiness men who borrow at
the banks in the South pay, on
the average, 2! per cent more
for io .cy than do business
men in the Eastern States, ac
cording to the reports filed at
Washington by 6,000 national
banks. When we compare the
rates paid by farmers, ner
chants and manufacturers in
this section of the United States d
with those paid by speculators r
in Wall Street, the difference is a
even more marked. Interest s
rates on the New York Stock ti
Exchange are often as low as r
21 per cent -* hen men engaged s
in productive industries in the I
South are paying from 6 per s
cent to 10 per cent for bank V
funds with which to carry on -
business. It certainly is a bad- a
ly-oroanized banking system G

Boost for Good Roads-.t
Washington, D. C.-The c:
House has aided the national d
good roads movement by passing a
a provision in the postoffice ap- C
propriation bill which would S
grant a subsidy to all highways ~
used in the rural free delivery "
mail service. These roads J
would be divided in three classes, e'
with subsidies of $25, $20 and S
15 a mile. It is estimated the
cost of the first year would be s<
