Much Interest in Conference of Ware
housemen to be Held Next Wednes
Columbia, April 29.--Of more signil
canco oven than the meeting of the
Democratic county conventions on
Monday is the conference of the ware
housemen of the State warehouse sys
tem on \Vednesday according to the
view in political circles, That meeting,
in their opinion, has potential possi
bilities from a politcal standpoint, and
the interest has been whetted by the
air of secrecy surrounding the whole
For the first time in months Senator
John L. McLaurin is refusing to talk
in advance of a conference which con
tors around the warehouse system.
While the call for the conference came
through State Senator J. Arthur
Banks, of Calhoun county, who is
President of the Warehousemen's As
sociation, political circles have not
lost sight of the figure of Senator Mc
Laurin, who is not only the father of
the system, but also its faithful guard
ian. More than once he has made it
known that he is read, to fight any
body and anything which opposes the
warehouse system and the fact that
the call for the 'Wednesday conference
declared that a crisis had been reach
ed in the life of the warehouse has im
Pressed the politicians with former
statements made by the warehouse
commissioner of his intention to wage
warfare on those who get in its way.
The possibility of Senator Mclaurin
entering the race for governor has
been revived in the last few days, but
those in touch with him do not for
one minute think that events will take
this turn. That he has something up
his sleeve which wiil at, the proper
time be sprung on the public every one
believes, but just what. it is can only
be speculated on. If hiny one has been
trusted with his plans the confidence
has been preserved and respected and
no Iilut of what is contempldted has
been allowed to come out.
The insurane situation will have a
large bearing on the conference, it. is
believed. The tight which resulted in
driving the southc-astern Tariff Asso
ciation out of the State and the with
drawal of the fire insurance companies
was given a big impetus, if not act
ually cradling it, through the contro
versy which arose when the $1.58 rate
for insurance on cotton stored in State
warehouses was obtained. The history
of the struggle before the General As
sembly, which culminated in the pas
sage of the anti-compact bill, is still
recent, and that fight was carried on in
the main by the friends of the State'
warehouse system. The warehouse
men are expected to make known their
opinion on the situation which has
grisen, and they are also expected to
come to some definite opinion regard
ing the advisability of the State going
into the insurance business, which was
advocated by Senator Mlaurin in his
letter to Governor Manning suggesting
an extra session of the legislature.

a few extracts from the governor's
message, and was printed in order that
the sentiment of the people of the
State and the true facts in reference
to the great results that have been
