In these days when the dollar is
skittish and prone to seek the cool
sequestered nooks of bank and safe
deposit vaults, we the people are
impressed with what a dear de.
llghtful thing iscredir. In somo
respects it is surpassed in personal
appearance by cash, of the hot and
spot varieties, but the fact lingers
that for a boon companion to chum
with In* season and out, at home
and abroad, credit is altogether
Credit does not inhabit the South
ern States in flocks. It is a rare
bird. It settles hero and once in a
while, there, but as a general thing
its dwells in Nothern latitudes.
There is no reason in the nature
of things why credit should not bo
found In large quantities In those
parts but the explanation of its
absence Is plain. Gredit docs not
thrive whore there is'ot plenty of
collateral and that's what's the
matter with the Hannah's in Dixie,
Theso capitalistic chappies in the
North despise to lend mony on land
and they don't do it. It takes
time to sell land, it is troublesome
to dispose of, it can't be handled
last. It is too unwieldy a lever
to attempt to raise money with ex
cept with "great deliberation.''
Land ownership has been a curious,
and perplexing thing since Adam's
title to that handsome place of real
estato betwixt the Tigris and Eu
phrates became clouded. There
fore your yankeo Croesus eschews
mortgnges If there is a certificate
of stock waiting to be pledged.
When he wants money ho wants it
quick and that is why he seldom
lends it unless on some security
that is available as an asset at a.
Southorn people should accumu
late "collateral." Farmers ought
to make it a point to take stock in
manufacturing enterprises. Thoy
should buy shares in banks too but
more banks aro not so badly needed
as aro more factories. If the man
who succeeds in paying for a two
horso farm would then buy a few
hundred dollars worth of good fac
tory stuck before trying to purchase
all the land adjoining his place ho
would be gloriously independent.
When the pinch came, ho would
step up to the cashier, turn over
his securities, get the desired ac
commodation and escape the hu
miliation of having a dozen friends
decline to endorse his note.
Our people are rich in land. The
Advertiser believes that the
time is coming when land will
pass by assignment just as does
building and loan or railroad or
other stock and that titles will be
universally cleared. To effect such
a reform in the laws will require
the tearing away ot the prejudice
of a hundred generations but it is
coming for the reason that there is
nothing grounded in common sense
to prevent it.. But it is a weary
way off. For the present, stocks
must remain the basis of credit and
every man should have a supply.
In periods of financial depression
they aro the life preservers of bus
The idea of hardworking farmers
buying .stocks may be laughed at
but it is not ridiculous. Hundreds
of farmers do save money and
make Investments but the notion
among them is that there is noth
ing to buy except land. If that no
tion could bo rooted out, It would
bo easier to build cottton mills, our
industries would bo diversified and
the country's wealth would bo

The lust session of our legisla

knows how to value our Governor.
While the Virginia Democratic
convention was in session it was
circulated that Gray Gables had a
new master and jubilant congratu
lations were sent. It was all a
hoax, and Kr?nkln was out yacht
ing. Hut O'Ferrall was nominated
for Governor, all the same.
Oov. Tillmao as tho tall to the
I Augusta Kite at Chicago had a re
ception and made a speech. He
assumed the roll ot seer and
prophesied that Chicago would be
the biggest town on earth. He
spoke of having* to travel a thous
and miles to "get thar" and ex
pressed some surprise at the big
ness of this country, He apologized
for South Carolina not being rep
resented, but the apology Is
not given. If he had read from
"Shell's Manifesto" written by
himself all would have been plain.
The News and Courier takes
solace over some half dozeu Caro
linians, who are doing great honor
to thin Slate as gato keepers
and the like and drawing big
salaries at Chicago, contributing by
their talents to tho success of that
show. The State needs no exhib
ition of her resources other than
these Incomparable representa
tives. Still strangers might say of
the State, as was said of Mrs. John
"Though on pleasure bout,
8he lias a thrifty mind." *
Mr. T. Cartlege, a Columbia "Dis

pelled on Sunday last under tho
law of tho church forbidding tho
manufacture or sale of intoxicating
liquors as a beverage. The vote
of the members was unanimous.
