N. B. DIAL EXPLAINS HIS PLAN
FOR A FEDERAL WARE
Columbia, S. C., August 8, 1918.
I have had so mainy requests to
discuss my views on a National
Warehouse System and the time al
lotted me on the stump is so short,
that I have decided to place my views
before the public through the col
umns of your paper.
What we need most, at the pres
ent time, is to get our agricultural
products in shape to be used as col.
lateral. My suggestion is that Con
gress pass a separate bill, authoriz
ing National Bonded Warehouses in
.vhich non-perishable products of the
soil can be stored, receipts to be is
sued therefor guaranteed by the Gov
About seventeen years ago, I saw
the necessity of aiding the farmers
n marketing their crops and organi
sed a bonded warehouse at Laurens.
this was one of the first organized
in the State. This warehouse is built
)n modern designs, practically fire
proof, with the best sprinkler sys
tem, etc. The insurance on contents
t at an exceedingly reasonable rate.
it has always been a success finan
The moneyed world knows that
he cotton crop has to be marketed
.vith a chort space of time, in order
that the farmers can meet thzeir obli
ation with the local merchants or
banks, and the local banks be pre
pared to meet their obligations for
uoney borrowed elsewhere. There
Fore, the owner of cotton has to take
vhatever price he can get for it. If
this price. should happen to fall fifty
per cent. he has to sell. While, I
am speaking of cotton I realize, of
ourse, that no law could be passed
governing this commodity alone.
I do not believe in appealing for
help when one can help one's self,
but in this complex nation of ours it
is necess,:ry for the citizens to abk
the National Government for aid
under these peculiar circumstances.
If the States were allowed to issue
money, then it would not be neces
sary to go to the National Govern
ment; but when we remember we
gave up this right to the general
government, and can issue money
only on prohibitive terms, we can
see the reason and justice of asking
Congress to help us. It took me
some time to make up my mind that
this was the proper thing to (10. We
see wvherc the Government appropri
ates money t oedlucate us and aid us
in making greater crops. We knowv
of no Constitutional provision for
this; however, we arc not complain

A great and good work is being
(lone, but after we are taught to
make greater crops, it would not lbe
wvrong to hellp us get the best results
we could for the products of our la
bor. By doing so, our citizens will
be encouraged to go on the farms,
thereby improving their henalth and
giving employment to many millions
of idlle people, and they could help
raise something to live on. This sys
tem wvould increase the price of land,
give employment to labor, would
help the merchants, and would bene
fit the cotton mills, and would dlraw~
at tremendous amount of trade from
the other countries of the world
which use our cotton. Farmers
would be encouraged to raise greater
crops, knowing that they could get a
My undlerstandling is that tle Gov
ernment issues certificates for whis
key storedl in bonded warehouses. I
see no difference in this and receipts
or certificates given for the cotton
in similar warehouses, except that
the Government gets a revenue out
of the wvhiskey, and it wvould be said
thI the owners of cotton wvould not
want to pay a tax. Trhis is true, but
they would be willing to pay what
ever expense wvould be necessary to
get a receipt countersigned or guar
anteed for their cotton, corn or
grain. There are three ways to ac
The first is by private warehouses
similar to the one outlined above.
This method, however, is inadequzgte,
in that it does not take much money
to build a warehouse. The capital is
too small to insure confidence. Some
time ago I listened to a man speag
ing to the farmers along this line,
and he advocated that wherever a
few .thousand bales were raised, to
build warehouses, lie meant well,
but evidently had not stud iedl his
subject. It would not (10 to build
warehouses, unless they were practi

the content could be insured, and at
a reasonable rate. No one would

system that will aid1 the whole coun

go ' ito the warehouse business. This
is a big problem for the people to
consider, and there is a great deal to
be said on both sides. However,
some States might pass such laws,
and others would not. State Consti
tutions would have to be amended.
The third way, and this is my so
lution of the problem, is for Con
grd.s to paws an independent ware
I do not know that the National
Government would build, or that it
would desire to own warehouses, but
it occurs to me that it could recog
nize all warehouses which are built
according to modern standards, and
if it should be thought necessary for
the title to be in the Government, it
could lease these warehouses for a
nominall rental. Such warehouses
then could be declared to be ready
to receive non-perishable products
of the soil. Before this is done,-how
ever, let the warehouse companies
furnish the Government strong bonds
to protect it in every way, and then
let the receipts be given by the ware
houses, countersigned by some agent
of the Internal Revenue Department.
These receipts would specify the
weight, grade, staple, etc. Let the
warehouse company pay the Govern
ment what expense i snecessary to
get the receipt-in other words a
very small fixed charge.
There should be no compulsion
upon any one to store the product,
but in case they desire to do so they
would have it in a form which could
be used as collateral. The result in
my opinion would be that money
would flow in the direction of the
warehouses from all parts of the
country, and the owners would be,
therefore, enabled to market their
product throughout the entire year
instead of being forced to sell in pan
icky times. As every one knows, cot
ton deteriorates but little, and there
is z. ready market every day in the
year; hence money should be bor
rowed at the lowest rate.
The Federal Reserve Bank has
more than once indicated its willing
ness to lend money at a low rate of
interest, say 6 per cent. on cotton.
What it does will necessarily be the
measure of accommodations through
state and National Banks, and in
this they will the more readily coop
erate where the basis of credit is
guaranteed by a government certifi
When the present State Ware
house plan was in its infancy, in dis
cussing it through the press with
lion. Jno. L. McLaurin, I undertook
to show that it would be inadequate.
Since Mr. McLaurin has made his
views more fully understood and
since he has perhaps even broadened
those views, it is evident that we are
trying to reach the same end by dif
ferent routes. I would not detract
anything from Mr. McLaurin's zeal
and his great ability in evolving a
State Warehouse plain to coordinate
the interest of the cotton State. If
Mr. McLaurin could bring about the
cooperation of all cotton States as
he advocates, the State system could
be made successful. If 4s he sug
gests, he could then establish a cen
tral marketing bureau in New York,
he wvould coordinagte the forces for
gradual selling at the best prices,
which aftcr all is the real thing to be

jI realize that the above suggestion
is al ittle bit revolutionary, but this
is a progressive age, andl it is neces

money, they must be convinced the
security is perfectly safe. The plan
