that half million LOAN*
t.'ov. Blease and Treasurer Jennings
Make Statements?Slight Vurlaace.
Columbia, April 28.?Following a
statement by State Treasurer Jennings
today, on the half-million dollar loan
made for the State Government. Gov
ernor Blease this afternoon made a
statement, in which he differed from
('apt. Jennings In one particular. Capt.
.Jennings said In his statement to the
press that the notes were executed on
April 20. Governor Blease states that
("apt. .leanings is mistaken in this and
that the notes were not signed by him
until after he and Cashier J, Pope
.Mat 1 hews had seen the bankers In New
York and arranged for the loan. Gov.
Blease made the further statement this
afternoon that .following the confer
ence, at which he. Comptroller Gener
al Jones and Treasurer Jennings took
part, the trip to New York was discuss
ed. Ho asked that Capt. Jennings go,
it being stated to the Governor that
one State olllclal should go. Capt.
Jennings, states the governor, gave a
reason for not being able to go, and
the governor then felt it his duty to
go to New York to represent the State.
The following Is State Treasurer Jen
"Inasmuch as some erroneous com
ment has been made in regard to the
money recently borrowed by the State,
as required by law. I respectfully sub
mit the following statement of facts in
connection therewith: After due notice,
the bids by the several banks for the
loan to the State of $500,000 were sub
mitted on the 17th day of April. These
bids were considered by the Governor,
Comptroller General and State Treas
urer on the 19th, and the award for the
loan was then made to the Palmetto
National Hank, their bid being :t pet
cent, with allowance of 1 per cent in
terest on the average deposit during
the life of the loan, which would re
duce their rate to about 2 1-4 per cent:
the hid of the Germanin Savings Bank,
of Charleston was 3 3-4 on $200,000
for six months, or 1 1-1 per cent to
January I, 1012. These were the only
"On the 20th day of April notes were
executed for $.r>00.000 at 3 per cent and
delivered to J. I'. Matthews, cashier
of the Palmetto National Hank, to
whom the award had been made. We
know of no agreement by which de
posit of these funds will draw Interest.
During my administration it has never
been necessary to leave on deposit
any amount of the funds borrowed.
In lOOS we borrowed a portion of the
money for the Stat o at S 7-8 interest.
In lOlW the money was borrowed at :i
per cent, us it was needed, which Is
the lowest rate during my administra
tion."- News and Courier.

McKolvey was drowned in the creek
about half a mile of Iiis home last Fri
day evening about I o'clock. He
bad been 111 bad health for several
years, hut his health had failed very
fast for the last few months and been
under treatment of live doctors. Hut
just lately he grew very despondent
over his condition and gave up all
hope of getting well. He Came from
Greenville today was a week ago. had
been to doctors again and didn't think
he was beneflttcd any by going to
them. So the next morning ho de
cided he would take a trip to Char
leston, thought that might help him,
but it ?1 if 1 not seem to do him any
good and don't think he went to Char
leston with the intention of taking his
life. We were greatly troubled over I
his leaving without letting us know,
where he was going. There never had
been any trouble in the home, he was .
satisfied he dearly loved Ills home.
His disease had become so deep seat
ed and he suffered so much that it
might have affected Ills mind, and caus
ed him to do that lie did at the time
of Ids death. It is very sad indeed
but we are not Without hope. Wo be
llOVO that lie went home safe to heav
en, where there will bo no suffering
pain or death. He had made great pre
paration for death. He left behind a
statement of writing which was n
great consolation to us, assuring us
that he was ready to meet bis (Jod in
Peace. I know he never had his heart
set on the world or the things of
world. I want to correct one thing
I read today and that was be neverl

Lisbon, April 28.?We farmers are
hustling to get our cotton seed In the
ground, and from all indications we
may get a cold rain most any time,
yet a good season would help wonder
fully as the ground is very hard right
now. Wheat and oats have made won
derful improvement since the last
rains, but oats will not do much if it
falls to rain right away. The corn that
came up from the week's rain don't
seem to be making much headway
right at this time.
A few days back one of the Milan)
Bros.' line mules got out of the stable,
ran up to their Tongue farm, returned
home, fell in the lot near the stable,
striking her head against the rock un
der the corner of the stable and broke
her skull. The boys carried her to
the veterinary surgeon, Dr. Karle
Owens, of Laurens, and the mule is at
home doing line.

Three dusky damsels engaged in a
light last Sunday on their way from
church in front of Mr. Pink Fuller's
home. They used a knife and sticks
very freely, yet there was very little
damage done as others interfered and
stopped them. We hope that the coun
ty police will make it convenient to
he up and down the roads leading
from these churches and hear the talk
and see the conduct of some of these
youngsters of both sexes and you will
see what we country people have to
endure more or less from time to time.
That is one reason that the people that
can move to town are moving. Last
Sunday a week ago. two of strawber
ry blondes cut up right on the church
grounds at the colored church during
services. Now we think these young
blacks ought to be put on the chain
gang and made to know that the laws
of this state had to be obeyed and the
the farmers don't make a good crop
some degree is to blame for these ne
groes doing the way they do, from the
fact that he always takes him off the
chain gang or pays the fine before he
lets him go on. If the negro knew
when he committed the crime that he
would not commit it in a great many

over and If we could get a good warm
rain the cotton would soon be up. If

it will be for the want of fertilizer and
preparation. We Certainly have done
all we could do.
