8 STATE PRESS COMMENT. 8
The Duke Plan.
Mr. J. B. Duke, captalist. has be
come interested in the cotton ware
house proposition and is endeavoring
to interest spinners, banters, nier
chants, farmers and others to take
stock in the organization of a great
corporation that will take over all the
private warehouses in South Carolina
and build others throughout the state
whereever necessary. -lis general plan
is along the lines laid down in Senator
McLaurin's warehouse bill, except that
it is to be a private instead of h state
owned system, and the purpose is to
make profits for the stockholders as
such rather than for the cotton pro
ducers as such. Dealing as it does with
the biggest single resource of the
United States, the plan is a grand one,
as has already been pointed out by
Senator McLaurin and others, and Mr.
Duke, the man who has already cor
nered most of the splendid water pow
ers in South and North Carolina and
developed them almost to the point of
monopoly is financially able to put the
scheme through and make It a go; but
we are not inclined to endorse lr.
Duke in the matter. We are disposed
rather to consider that his splendid
business sense has caught fully on to
the McLaurin idea and that with the
tremendous financial :power at this
command, he sees where ie can get for
himself and associates that which dir.
McLaurin is trying to secure for South
Carolina'and the south. And in a thing
like th:s, if a private corporation
should be able to gobble up a monopo
ly that can he so easily taken over by
the state and operated for the benefit
of the people of the state, we would
consider it nothing short of a state
wide, If not a nation-wide calamity.
However, we look for thousands of
people inifluenced by various interests,
to back Mr. Duke where they should
instead back Senator MeIaurin, the
cotton producers and themselves. We
are for tte state warehouse system
rI tier than for any privately owned
concern, backed by c apital almost
equal to the power of the whole state.
The Senatorial Race.
11y the press dispatches it is stated
that probably 10x-Gov. .1no. Gary
i'vats and W. F. Stevenson would en
ter the Senatorial race and it is in
timated that Fenator Smith will not
he a candidate for re-elect ion. Senator
Smith will be a candidate, and will
make the race on his record which is
pretty good, and we think it. would be
unwise for Mlessrs. Evans and Steven
Sou to enter the race as they would
only draw strengtI from Senator
Siit who deserves to be re-elected.
Senator Smith has made good as
a representative, and should be re
turned for his stand for the agricul
tural interests of South Carolina and
tile South. For the sake of argument
grant that Fentator Smith is selfisht it
working for the agricultural interests
as ho is a farmer, ownIs considerahle
farming land anud raises a groat deal
of cotton. Such bcing tile case it na
trally followvs that he is wrapped tup
ill theo stubject. lie studies cotton,
he thtinks cottont, and he wvill do every
thing In his power to benefit tile pro
ducers of cotton. It seems to us that
the farmers of South Carolina wotuld
1b0 voting directly agaiinst their own
interests to vote against a man thlat
is directly and personally interested
inl tihe farim and thle bettermnent of the
c'onditionl of t-he farmer. The lill

have demonstrated thtat the actual
difference in valume amounts to oniy
a fractin of what thte farmers have
been "docked" for thte so-called in
ferior gr'ades of cotton and tile tests
are not complete yet. We are itter'
ested in the development of tihe agri
culttural interests of thte State be
cause wve know if thte farmer prospers
we will prosper too. Our interests are
identical, we are dependent en each
other. Thme town man needs the farm
or and thte farmter needs the towvn man.
Lot us get togetheri and pull1 togeth

fourths of the btusinoss people of the

to see where our political Interests
