h'le Newberry lerald and News and
the Newberry Observer issued silien
did eduicatioial editions last week as
a boost to the school fair and as an
encoltrageiment to the general educa
tlonal forces o1' the counlty. We ble
lieve that there is no other single
agency, ottside of the school iachin
ery itself, on w1leih the educational
irogress of the state depends more
than the county-seat pajiers and the
Newherry papers seema to have a full
realization of tie responsibility.
'he i'wholesale and retail merchants
of Greenville met several nights ago
to iap oit plans for a general adver
tising camn pa ign in IIthe counties suril
rounding that city. 'lhe newspapers
of Spartanhurg have taken note of this
stel) on the part of Greenville and are
preparing to do the same thing. The
Greenwood cla:nlher of commerce is
laying plans for an automobile adver
tising tour of the territory surrounid
ing it. hus, on Iiiee sides, Laurens
is beset by aggressive competitors. All
of these cities are taking advantage of
every opportuIi ity Which offers and
are spending .money to extend their
trading areas and hold tbeir owii
agaist rivals. They are fighting for

We a r; viti those of oir xching
es who hi ave emiiioned against accept
aner of I iI l(k wareiotise plan
without, further exinllIation into the
efails of the dan II and tle motive be
hind its suggestion. We ar'e not readly
to charge ulterior miotives to the New
York finanicier or his backers, but it
would not hurt to go slow in the mat
There seems to be considerable coni
fusoon -as to whom the plan is to ben
efit and by whom It is really fathered.
When tile plan was first suggested
by Mr. D~uke, the claim was 'made, we
are not qiuite certain by3 homi, that it
wias In thme Iiterest of the farmers of
ii cout'. i-ough large cotton man
ufacturers, natuorally initerested in
lower pirices for the staple, seemed to
be most enthusiastic in its behalf. Sev
eral (lays later the Charlotte Observ
er, commientinlg on the plian said this:
"~it is to the spininers interest to
buly cotton earlny in the season, when
they are likely to get better gradles,
but1 owing to d(liulltiesi in financing,
they are unable to (d0 so. With a
warehou11si' syst em ahlng the , flnes pro
p)osed, thieajpinners could buay theIr
cotton at a time and In quantities
mno't advantageous to them, store the
sta ple, and gat motney from the bank
on the warehouse receipts."
1'0 we fintd that t he spinnters, wIth
wVhomi the produtcers muitst conltend~ In
the fight for hotter prices, "'couIld buy
theCIr cotton at a tim andl) 11 in quaniiiti
tics miost atdvanta~geouts to) them."
Thus far, we have -two opposing intler
erts to be benefittedl by3 the pllan. In
a later lasue1 tile Charlotto Observer'
has pointed out to it a still third
party, mill finanlciers, as1 will be% seen
in the following .paragraph:
",It was pointedi out 4)y a banker
yesterday -that one of the objects of
tho Duke-City Bank cotton ware
house plan was unidoubtediy to force
mill owners to abandon the use of
sintg!e namei paper. anid substitat'.) for
It nloteS secutr'd 'hy warehou4. rei
coipts for cotton--paper wichl is
eligIble for rediscount undier the~ Fed

Now we have tinree conflictng in
terests suiggested as beCine; the beneli
fleinries under the great p'~an. The
qutestion confronting us is, whoe ha go
