McLAURIN SAYS HE
WONT USE SALARY
Warehouse CommIssioner Only Askes
for Ills Expenses. Atatement to the
Columbia, Nov. 21.--John L. Mc
Laurin, State warehouse comimssion
er,'in a statement to the people of
South Carolina today asking for co
operation in inaugurating the State
cotton storage sytem says that he will
not take a cent of the salary allowed
him under the Act and only asks for
his expenses. Mc. McLaurin has com
pleted the machinery and is now busy
putting the system into operation.
The commissioner promises to give
in a later statement something of the
results of his efforts towards making
the warehouse receipts liqu'd collat
era!, saying, "I hope to have- some
information later as to the use of State
warehouse receipts as a collateral, 1)ut
do not wish to make a statement until
I can speak advisedly." His statement
it is believed, will prove of great in
terest, especially to the farmers and
the merchants. The interest taken In
the' warehouse system is reflected in
the great number of letters which
reach Senator McLaurin on every mail
from all parts of the State.
The statement of Warehouse Com
missioner MeLaurin says:
"Columbia, S. C., November .20, 191 .
"To the People of South Carolina:
I have completed the machinery to
put the State warehouse system into
operation. Application blanks may be
had from this office, also the form of
contract. Under the Act I can only
pay rent after all operating expeiises
are met; consequently, I am forced to)
take the warehouses that' are otfored
at a nominal rent, and require thu
owners to pay all chagres and exz
penses, including 3 cents per hale per
month to the State, to meet the cost
of postage, telegrams, express, travel
ling expenses, printing the reaeipts,
tags and other blanks. I find that the
charge does not cover tle cot, but I
wfll use the appropriation as far as it
%ill go, and submit the matter to the
next General Assembly. I do not ex
pect to use a cent of the salary given
me, unless there is a further appro
priation, as all the money will be need
ed to continue the acceptance of ware
houses. I only want my actual ex
penses, and no receipts will come in
until cotton is -taken out, which may
be a year, while insurance, etc., is Iaid
"I hope to have some informattion
later as to the use of State warehouse
receipts as a collateral, but do not
wish to make a statement until I can
speak advisedly. !Dr. Wade Stackhiwite
subimtted the receipts to certain capi
talists in New York, and his ieport
-was that the State receipt would b
preferred by them to that of any pri.
vate or corporate receipt for- cotton on
"This is a new departur ein both
finance and government. It will take
time and patience to inaugurate it,
and I especially nak the farmers of
this State to give me their confidence
and support. .Don't expect miracles.
I am not 'a mirale maon,' as one of
the newsp~apers intimates, nor the
muan who 'found a shoe string and
built a factory.'
"I notice in the morning paper of
today a decision by Associate Justice
Gage, wvhich further emiphasizes the
decree in the wvarehouse.case of 1912.
No jurist has in clearer language set
forth the principles upon which such
legislation as the South~ Carolina,
Louisiana amid Texas WVarehouse Acts
are bas'ed. Judge Gage says:
"'Cotton, and that includes its seed,
is the staple product of th~e State and
of the South; in this year of grace the
frightful collapse of its price, incident
to a well-nigh universal war, has
shocked two continents; the whole
policy of the State is bound up in the
growing, the sale and the manufacture
"The individual cotton grower is
powerless to protect himself. If we
can unite the units we can control the
situation. Co-operation spells success.
We will never got this except through
our State Legislatures. If our exp~eri
meat fails, then no other State will
'I am only meeting such opposition
as I expected. I am depending on my
fellow farmers--not those whose in
terests are against us. Some of the
newspapers have been liberal and fair.
while some have been harsh and un
just. Try to sift out the truth. If you
do not let your mind be poisoned
by insidious methods of belittling me
for the purpose of destroying a mecas..
utre which will be of inestimable bene
fit to you and your children's children.
"I accepted unsought the tremendous
responsibility, and if my healthu holds
out I will see it through. To sell cot
ton at present prices is practically the
confiscation of fifty millions dollars of
property belonging to you. The State
is attempting to aid you. It is not
only a function, but it Is the duty of
a government to protect 4itizens in
their Droperty rights as wel as in life
and4 liberty Thea.eatvoa of Junge
Gage is a splendid Onunciation of this
-principle. I wishisome case would oc
our'giving him'en opportunity to de
fine with the .satne clear insight; just'
What the COnstitUtion -means -by pro
te'etini a citizen in- the -ownership of
property. Does it include the use of
that property, or does it moan merely
physical possession? If restricted to
mere physical possession,. then the
constitutional guarantee is a hollow
mockery, -for combinations of capital
can confiscate the profits and thereby
deprive me of my property by destroy
ing Its use.
"All of these questions must be fi
nally adjudicated in the Courts of the
land. I feel that this world-wide war
is the end of one epoch and the be
ginning of 4 new one in the science
of government and finance. The ulti
mate aim of a true democracy is to
give to each individual his just rights
and no more. This must involve an
equitable division of the burdens of
organized society, as well as the bene
"A situation like the present offers
a fertile field for money and power
to fatten at the expense of weeknese
and poverty. The farmers cannot bear
without destruction, the entire burden
of this situation. It must be distrib
uted over the entire body politic, and
there is no force strong enough to
cdrb money and its power, save or
ganized government. This is the logi
cal sequence of the statement, 'the
whole policy of the State is bound up
in the growing, the sale and the man
ufacture of cotton.'
"What a grand conception of gov
ernment it is, to stand strong; curbing
human greed and protecting human
weakness. Do not be deceived; the
entire world is deeply interested in
getting your cotton at the lowest pos
sible price. They intend you to
shoulder the entire loss on- this crop,
and yet you make another one if you'
can. The more cotton you make, the
less you get. If one-half of the cotton
crop were destroyed, the portion left
would sell for more than the whole.
Why is it that as soon as Liverpool
and New York settled their straddle
contracts that the Exchange opened?.
They are knocking the price down
every day. Why does not the Stock
Exchange open? Because it would
lower the price of -stocks and bonds.
These are held by capitalists, while
cotton is held by the Southern farmer.
These capitalists wish to use high
priced stocks, through the regional re
serve system, to get money to buy
6 cent cotton in the South. Cotton in
Europe is now worth 20 cents per
pound. If they can get your cotton
at 6 cents, they will make the biggest
'killing' ever seen. Any government
thaf will stand for such infamy and
not hold out a protecting hand to the
producers is unworthy the support oh
an honest man.
"If I had.,the-warehouse system that
I pleaded: with -the .Legilature for one
year ago, I would be.opening up direct
trade with Manchester -and establish
ing a stable price for cotlon.
"The only remedy is to warehouse
your cotton, .and ge money on the
receipts to ease Up~your creditors. If
you will plant grain, raise .stock and
produce tie cotton~ in :1915, 7you will
get the benefit of war prices later."

Some Interesting. Facts About-lIiney
Few people realize to what extent
their health-depends upon the condi
tion of the kidneys.
The physician in nearly all cases of
serious illness, makes a chemical anal
ysis of the patient's urine. He knows
that unless the kidneys are doing their
work properly, the other organs can..
not readily be brought back to health~
When the kidneys are neglected or
abused in any way, serious results are
spre to follow. According to health
statistics, Brighit's disease which is
really an advanced form of kidney
trouble, caused nearly ten thousand
deaths in 1913, in the 'state of.- Ne w
York alone. Therefore, it b ooves
us to pay more attention to e health
of these most important gans.

had remarkab succes as a kidney
remedy is Dr. kilme S'wamp-Root,
