LAURENS, S. C., MAROCI 9, 1921
The local delegation to the General
Assembly followed a sound ipolicy in
providing for the essential needs of
the highway commission and leaving
to the people it decision on expendi
tures outside the original program. To
bur mind, however, it would have been
better to have made the extra bond
Issues large enough to take care of
needed improvements on other imu
l)ortant highways of the county, the
completion of the Laurens-Greenwood
road, for instance. lowever, the dele
gation had strong representations for
.the smaller bond issues and could not
Well avoid doing something to meet
with these demands.

WITlOUT" ANY FRIENDS
In a lettet' to editors of paners in
outh Carolina asking them to give as
tnuch space as posible to the acreage
reduction movement, A. B. Jordan,
()resident of the State Press associa
ion sizes up the situation about as it
is, as follows:
"With mills closing down every
where, with the cotton jobbing trade
in the North practically at a stand
still, with the demand for cotton goods
.falling off every day, not only in the
~United States, but all over the world,
a4nd iwith lEurope returning cotton to
America because the spinners over
there are not able to pay for it, it
seems that South Carolina's only hope
fles in acreage reduction, regardless
of what other states do."
The Advertiser could hardly add
more to that except to go a little
farther and say that each farmer
would do well to reduce hi. acreage re
gardless of what his neighbor does.
The farmer who grows a large crop
of cotton will take a long chance on
profit and probably take a big loss
if many do likewise. E0ven if there is
a general reduction of acreage the
profit on cotton will likely be small
and the man who supplies himself at
.home will be in a strong epxsition even
if cotton prices remain low.

The all1p11oitment in thme senlate crc

1led by Senator Cliftotn, of Sulmter and
Senato0'tr l~emanti, of (Cl'rndon, con
Iendling that those who hiad stronu
ductions were without representation.
President Wilson G. Harvey. after
considerable debate emphasized that
Senator Watkins had procured more
reductions than any other senator; he
had led the fights which reduced the
bill $98,912. 'He had first contem
plated -putting Senator Williams, of
Aiken, on the commission as Senator
Williams had voted consistently with
the radical wing for reduction. Son
ator Williams asked to be excused. He
then thought of putting Senator John
son, of Allendale, but Senator John
son was absent. He then appointed
Senator Watkins, who had achieved
more in his efforts to reduce the bill
than any other, and so far as the
chair was concerned the atppointments
stood.
The procedure was unprecedented in
the senate, and the protest against
free conference committee appoint
ments was the subject of much dis
cussion at the time in the lobbies of
both houses.
Senator Clifton took the floor after
P'reident 'Harvey had dismissed the
matter and emphasized that he was
still of his original opinion that those
advocating sharp reductions in the
measure were without representation,
and he did not "propose to be lec
tured by the chair."
The senate tonight continued until
next session the bill by Representative
Simonhoff, of Charleston, requiring a
medical certiflcation of all males ap
plying for marriage licenses. I
Indications early tonight are that
both houses will 'be in session until
late tomorrow morning.
During the lapse, the lower house is
receding from business, subject to the
call of the chair and occasional raps
for order being given when papers are
received in the senate, affecting ad
lustments on many local measures.

Washington, March 5.--Cessation

which it was learned tonight the state

the governments of those two coun
tries by Charles Evans Ilughes, the
new secretary of state.
This action was the first of the
Ilarding administration in the roalmn
of foreign affairs and was said to
have been based on the grounds of
broad expediency as the dispute be
tween the Central American republics
involved American interests in the
'anama ('anal Zone.
A peaceful solution of the dispute
over the territory of Coto on the basis
of the WVh ite award is understood to
have been suggested. The notes did
not suggest mediation by the United
States, but were understood to have
eonveyil the imipression that thi;
country stood ready to (nfOrce, if
