IN WAR FINANCE
Experience of Europe Aids the
WARRING COUNTRIES SOUND
Credit of France and England, in
Spite of Severe Strain, Is
Still on Solid Basis.
The United States, through the expe
rience of the warring European pow
ers, has acquired a tremendous fund of
preparedness information. Americans
who have served with the European
armies andj-iavies have made avail
able to us their valuable experience in
the world war.
In the less spectneular, although
hardly less important, phase of the
struggle, war financing, this country
has also had skilled observers. It has
not been necessary for them to visit
the scene of the struggle. In a way
the scene of the struggle has come to
them. Much of the planning of the
financial side of the war has taken
place within shadow of Trinity Church
in lower Broadway, New York.
Amerloa World Finanoial Leader.
By reason of America's newly ac

finances, we know how Europe has

economie, filnaineial and social problems.
The banks and trust companies of
this country, throughi which Europe
has conductel IuchI of her war
financing, are at one with the nation's
industries, in affording the government
the resources wvith which to meet the
eventualities of war. For example, the
Guaranty Trust Company of New York
has recently reduced to boo0k form its
fund of information on wvar financing.
In a pamphlet entItled "WVar Loans
andl the United States," there Is some
rather strikinug informnatioun. The United
States now holds approximately thirty
per cent of the wvorld's suipply, it points
out. This is an increase of thirty-six
per cent over the amount held by this
country in 1914, and upon us is thrown
the obligation of empIloylng It Intelli
gently. We are dislcharging tis ob
ligation by using it as a basis for for
eign loans and the extension of credit.

| On The Ne,
Editor The Advertiser:
Since reading J. jD. Culbortson's let
ter to The State and a good one too,
we would like to say that we endorse
every word that he said, and will add
a little to what he has already said.
I anra little farmer down here at this
little place that we call Lisbon, and I
ai going 'to give you some facts as I
think of them. We changed hands
about the 20th of December, all except
one family, on the 24t of December.
We carried the two families that had
moved -in to Laurens. We advanced
one $15.00 cash and $25.00 worth of
shoes and supplies; the other one
$20.00 cash and $10.00 worth of shoes
and supplies. They had four head of
hogs that was turned in our lot and
they were fed from our crib. They had
three head of cows and they were fed
from our crib up to April the 1st and
no charges were made against them.
We turned them loose in our scatter
Ing cotton and gave it all to them, and
furnished and fed mules to carry it to
market and they told me from that
iot they realized $20.00. 'I don't know
how much after that but they kept
picking as long as they could see a
boll. Now then, did they buy a pound
of bacon or flour? No, they spent that
money for what I can't tell you, as
Buoyrgt at aifnc youar
you have to buy overalls, shoes, medl
elne, pay their taxes and give then
money to pay their wives' dues to
their societies every month, furnish
them wagons, mules, buggies to go
whenever they want to go, and you
have to be as polite to them as you
would to \Voodrow Vilson if you had
the pleasure of meeting him down this
way. Now, then, we want any fair
.d man to read what we have said
as to what should make a darkey satis
fled in the South, and if this falls,
then we have no remedy to suggest or
to offer. We have 22 darkies on our
place; three months gone and what lit
tie work has been done, live out of the
'Iwenty-two hive dlone it. Do you
ihink that the live could go up North
and pay house rent, buy coal, pay for

The war is on and we are .sorry,
because we know that some mnother's
boyy has to go, and some of them will
never return. But war has been de
clared and we have nothing to do but
to respond to the call, and not walt to
be coscripted. We heard some farm
ers nay the other day that "I am not
going and I will die first" while oth
ers said they would fight,-if the Ger
mans invaded South C rolint, but they
