N. 6. DIAL SUGGESTS PLAN WHEREBY EARM
PRODUCTS MIGHT BE USED AS COLLATERAL
Would Have Congress Pass a Separate National Bond
ed Warehouse Bill In Which INon-Perishable Products
of the Soil Might be Stored and Money Borrowed on
Them the Plan.
Mr. N. B. Dial, who announced aomei
months ago that lie would be a can*
dldnte next summer for the seat in
the United States senate now held by
K. I). Smith, roturned from a business
trip to the north seven I days ago.
While In Washington ho made a call
upon several of the South Carolina
delegation in congress and talked over
the Issues of the day.
Mr. Dial gave them his views on
the question of currency reform and
several of the congressmen were so
much Interested In them that they ask
ed him to write out these views. On
Ills return. Mr. Dial did so and the
letter Is found below. According to
this letter. Mr. Dia! thinks that the
CSSOntlal need of tin- agricultural
sections of the south and west Is to
provide some method which will give
(liability to the farmer's principal col
lateral, his uon-porlshablo farm pro
ducts so that he will he able to market
his Crop gradually. The host way of
attaining this end. he states, is through
a system oj warehouses bonded or
guaranteed reliable and safe by the
United states government, The letter
of Mr. Dial follows:
"Congress is considering changing
our banking and currency law. A
good deal has boon said about lend
ing money direct to owners of cotton
and grain on warehouse receipts. I
have a plan which, I think, will solve
this problem. The groat need in the
South is more money, of course. We
have hut two things which we can
use as collateral, numoly, land and
cotton. I am glad to state that con
siderable sums are being loaned on
land by Insurance companies and oth
ers, and this will take care of It
self. What we need most at the
present time, is to got our agricultural
products in shape to he used as col
lateral. My suggestion is that Con
gress pass a separate hill authorising
'National Bonded warehouses in which
non-perishable products of the soil
can he stored, receipts issued there
for, upon which the owners could
borrow money in any part of the
"If you will excuse a personal al
lusion, 1 will state that I have been
farming all my life; have boon prac
ticing law :t() years, ami have boon
engaged in the hanking business all
this time. About lifteen years ago I
saw the necessity of aiding our farm
ers in marketing their crops and
organized a bonded warehouse at
this place. This warehouse is built
on modern designs, practically tire
proof with the latest sprinkler sys
tem, etc. The Insurance on contents
is at an exceedingly reasonable rate.
The idea is that the moneyed world
knows that the cotton crop has to be
marketed within a short space of
time, in order that the farmers can
meet their obligations with the local
merchants or hanks and the local
banks be prepared to meet their ob
ligations for money borrowed else
where. Therefore, the owner of cot
ton has to take whatever price he can
get for it. If this price should ball
pen to fall even 25 per cent, or 50
per cent, he has to sell. While I am
speaking of cotton, I realize, of
course, that no law could he passed
governing this commodity alone.
Ten years ago the annual agricultural
products of South Carolina amounted
to something like $51,000,000. Now
thoy approximate $i io.ooo.ooo. Our
banking facilities have always been
inadequate. I do not believe in ap
pealing for help when one can help
one's self, but in this complex nation
of pursuit Is necesary for citizens to
ask the National Government for aid
under these peculiar circumstances.
If the states were allowed to issue
money, then it would not he neces
sary to go to the National Govern
ment; but. when we remember that
we gave up this right to the general
government and can issue money only
on prohibitive terms then we can see
no reason and justice of asking Con
gress to aid us. It took nie some
time to make up my mind that this
was the thing to do. We see where
the Government appropriates money
to educate us and aid us In making
greater crops. We know of consti
tutional provision for this, however
we are not complaining, hut on the
contrary ate thankful. A great and
good work is being done, but after
we are taught how to produce larger
crops, it would not be wrong to help
up get the best results for the pro
ducts of our labor. By so doing our
citizens Will bo encouraged to go to.
the farms, thereby Improving their:
health and giving employment to
many millions of non-producers.
This system would increase the value!
of land, glvo employment to labor,
would help the merchants, and would
benefit the cotton mills, und would
draw a 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 fair
"My understanding is that the Gov
ernment Issues certificates for whis
key stored in bonded warehouses. 1
can see no difference between this
and receipts or certificate!) given for
cotton in similar warehouses?except
that the government nets a revenue
out of the whiskey, and II would ho
said that the owners of cotton would
not want to pay a tax. This is true,
but they would la; willing .o pay
whatever expense necessary t> net
a receipt countorsigncd or gunr
anteed by the Government for their
cotton, corn or grain, There are
three ways to accomplish this:
"The first is by private warehouses
similar to the one outline I above.
This method, however, is inadequate
in that it does not take much money
to build a warehouse and that It
would not need banking capital in
that it would require it for only part
of the year. Some time ago '. listened
to a man speaking, to I ho tanners
along this line, and he advocated
that wherever a few thousand bales
of cotton were raised, to build ware
houses. He meant well hut e vidently
had not thoroughly studied the sub
ject. It would not do to build ware
houses unless they wer" practically
flroproof and unless equipped With
lire protection, in order that contents
could be insured at a reasonahel rate.
No one would loan money on such
contents uninsured. This method,
however, helps some locally, hut my
thought is to get a system that would
aid the entire country. These local
wan-houses can borrow some money
at times, hut this depends upon the
reputation of the management more
than the capita] stock of the com
"The second plan is for the differ
ent states to go into the warehouse
business. This is a big problem for
the people to consider, and there is
a great deal to be said upon both
sides. Some states might adopt such
a law and others would not.
"The third way. and this is ab
solution of the problem. Is, as above
stated, for Congress to pass an In
dependent warehouse hill. I do not
know that the National (lovonimcnt
would build, or that It would desire
to own warehouses, but It occurs to
me that it could recognize all ware
houses that are built according to
modem standards, and If it should
be thougth necessary for the title to
be In the Government, it could lease
these warehouses for a nominal
rental. Such warehouses thou could
be declared to be ready to receive
non-perishable products of the soil.
Before this Is done, however, let the
warehouse company furnish the gov
ernment with strong bonds to pro
tect it In every way, and then let re
ceipts be given by the warehouses,
countersigned by some agent of the
Internal Revenue Department. These
receipts would specify the weight,
grade, staple, etc. Let the ware
house company pay the Government
whatever expense necessary to se
cure the receipt?in other words, a
very small fixed charge. There will
bo no compulsion upon anyone to
store the product, but in case they
desire to do so they would have It in
a form which would be used as a
collateral. The result in my mind
would be that money would tlow In
the direction of the warehouses from
all parts of the country, and the own
ers would be, therefore, enabled to
market their products throughout the
year instead of being forced to sell
in panicky times. As every one
knows, cotton deteriorates but little
and there is a ready market every
day in the year; hence, money should
be borrowed upon it at the very low
F realize the above suggestion is a
little bit revolutionary, but this is a
progressive age, and It Is necessary to
enact laws to meet the requirements
of the times. In order to get people
to lend or Invest their money they
must be convinced the security Is
safe. The plan above outlined seems
to me to be entirely reasonable, con
stitutional and practical."
