(Greenville Piedmont.)
South Carolina owes the Federal
government $4,668,238, which rep
resents a principal of $1,051,422 and
interest of $3,616,846. This ls tho
largest single debt this State owes.
It will have to be paid back If a bill
introduced in Congress by Represen
tative Andrews, of Nebraska, should
bo passed, for he proposes that thc
State of South Carolina and other
States shall return to Undo Sam
$28,101,644.91 lent them In 183C,
along with interest at four per cent
for 86 yoars. If all the States were
to pay up, the total amount due from
them would be $124,000,000, which,
(Representative Andrews proposes,
shall bo used to pay part of the huge
sum needed for the soldiers* bonus.
How did South Carolina come to
owe the Federal government so
much money?
It is al] due to the fact that In
1836 the Federal government had
more money than it knew what to do
with. After every need had been
met there was a balance of almost
$30,000,000, and so Congress, not
knowing how otherwise to use it,
deposited it in the various State
treasuries. "No part of it has ever
been repaid. In his annual 'message
to the Congress that splendid South
Carolinian, Presldont Andrew Jack
son, pointed out that this disburse
ment was not a gift, but a deposit of
the surplus moneys of the United
States in the State treasuries for
oafo-Weeping until they (might be
wanted for tho service of the general
government. He added:
"The States have no moro au
thority to receive and uso these
deposits without intending to re
turn them than any deposit bank
or any individual tempororlly
charged with the safe-keeping or
application of the public money
would have for converting the
same to their prtvato use without
tho consent and against the will
of the government."
When Jackson wrote that he esti
mated that a month later there would
he a balance in the national treasury
of about $41,723,969, over all gov
ernmental expenditures.
What a contrast with the receipts
and disbursements of the Federal
government In 1981! The Federal
government's receipts last year were
$14,489,931,233 as against $47,691,
89 8 in Jackson's last year in the
Presidency. Tho 'Federal govern
ment's expenditures last year totaled
$14,297,964,860 as against 032,000,
000 in 1836.
Four yoars after Jackson wrote,
tho public dobt of tho Unltod States
was only $48,565,406. Now lt ls
$23,427,772,447. Then the share of
the public debt of each person In the
United Stat was $3.77. Now lt ls
$ 2d 6,75.
When the Fedoral government In
1836 divided Its surplus among tho
States, Prosidont Jackson said that
consideration of that action had
caused him "tho most anxious reflec
tion." Woll lt did, for lt will never
he paid hack. Nor ls thoro any like
lihood, in view of tho stupendous ex
penditures of tho Fedoral govern
ment nowadays, that thoro will again
occur In tho financial history of this
country a situation wherein Uncle
Sam will havo so much surplus
money that he will consider lending
It to tho States. That oconomy of
expenditure which characterized tho
Federal government In Its early days
win never ho repeated.

Timber Company Now Engaged in
Securing Rights of Way.
(Pickens Sentinel.)
Preliminary steps are now being
taken which will lead to the biggest
industrial development in the history
of Pickens county within the next
few years.
Wade H. Chastain, general agent
for the Carolina Timber Co., is now
engaged in securing rights-of-way
for a railroad to be built from Jo
casseo, 20 miles above Pickens, and
Just over the line in Oconee county,
to the town of Pickens, and if the
necessary rights-of-way can be se
cured within a reasonable length of
time, the next step of actual con
struction of the railroad will be be
gun without delay, according to the
authentic information obtained by
the Sentinel.
.Plans for the building of the pro
posed railroad have been under way
for several years and aro as fully de
veloped as can be up to the point of
securing the rights-of-way and se
lecting the exact route, but this ls
the first news of lt that has been
given to the public. The road will
be built by the Carolina Timber Co.
as an outlet for its timber in Pick
ens and Oconee counties.
The Carolina Timber Co., a mem
ber of tho strongest timber land fac
tors in tho United States, own 64,000
acres of timber land In Pickens and
Coonee counties, most of which, how
ever, ls in Pickens county. This vast
tract contains immense quantities of
white pino, yellow pine, poplar and
chestnut, hickory and all other tim
bers known to this region, and is the
finest singlo tract of timber in the
Southern Appalachians if not In the
United Statos.
it is estimated that it will take at
loast twenty years to cut and move
the timber now on this tract. The
proposed road would run right Into
tho heart of tho Carolina Timber Co.
holdings, and this enormous amount
of timber would be hauled out over
Just above this 64,000 acros ls an
othor timber tract of many thousand
acres, owned by another company,
and this timber would also bo hauled
over tho proposed road.
The Carolina Timber Company has
throe routes in view for the road.
Present plans, according to reliablo
Information, aro to build the road
from Jocasseo down Whitewater and
Eastaloo rivers to Plckons and con
nect with the Southern rnilway at
or near Easloy, or batid to Walhnlln
and connect with tho Hluoltldgo rail
way there, or build to Calhoun and
connect with tho Southern at that
While it has definitely been de
cided to build tho road along ono ol
these routes, tho exact one has not
finally been selected. No doubt the
attitude ot the people ?lons the pro
posed ruutoB will bave much to do
with the final selection of the route.
Plans for the railroad have pro
grossed so far that lt ls known that
electricity is being considered as the
motive power for it. As high author
ities state that all railroads, in the
United States will ultimately be elec
trified, it is hardly too muoh to stato
that the new road will bo run'with
electricity. A semi-official statement
is that the timber company may de
velop its own power from streams ou
its property, or current may be fur
nished by the Southern Power Com
pany. There aro several streams in
the Carolina Timber Company's ter
ritory which will develop thousands
of horse-power.
In this connection the Sentinel is
reliably informed that the Southern
Power Company wanted to string a
line from Lake Toxaway through the
Carolina Timber Company property
and on through Pickens as early as
1910, but could not get a satisfactory
agreement with the owners of Lake
Toxaway dam property.
As stated before, plans for build
ing the road have been under way
for several years and are fully work
ed out. Everything is ready for the
work to begin as soon as the neces
sary rights-of-way are secured and
the exact route definitely laid out.
The Carolina Timber Company is
backed by unlimited capital and ls
able to put through any project it
may undertake. It has head oinc.es
In Chicago, with branch offices In
New York, Seattle and Portland.
?During the war this company was of
invaluable aid to the government,
furnishing much forestry informa
tion which the government experts
did not have, and also gave the gov
ernment use of its large spruce pine
tracts in Oregon, where most of the
wood material for airplanes was ob
If Pickens should get this railroad
lt would be the biggest thing that
ever happened to the town, for with
in a comparatively short time there
would be built here the largest lum
ber mill in this section, and tanner
ies, machine shops, etc., of the tim
ber company. Other manufacturing
plants would naturally follow, and
ultimately we would have a railroad
across the mountains.

ter an illness of several weeks. Miss
Hines was a member of the city
school faculty of Winston-Salem, N.
C., when she was taken sick and was
forced to return home. It ls sin
cerely hoped that she will very soon
be restored to her usual good healt'.'.
The D. IA. 'R. chapter was delight?
fully entertained at the last meeting,
Miss Sue Nimmons being hostess at
that time. The members responded
to roll-call with interesting items re
lating to the Pilgrim Fathers. Or.
E. A. Hines favored the chapter by
giving a talk, in his usual convinc
ing manner, on what he saw of his
toric Plymouth during a recent vlsi',
there, and the famous Plymou'.A
Rock. Dr. Hines's talk was full of
Interest from beginning to end and
was fully appreciated by the chapter.
During the social hour the hostess
served block cream with pound and
fruit cake.
The numerous friends of Mr. and
Mrs. 'Prank King, of Adairsvllle, Ga.,
sympathize with them in their anx
iety over the illness of their little
son, who has been suffering from a
severe case of pneumonia. Mrs. J.
H. Adams has been with them for a
week, rendering every assistance
possible In 'helping to nurse her lit
tle grandson back to health. The last

times with the local physicians who
have been in attendance.
The regular meeting of the Once
a-Week Club was held at the home
of Mrs. W. J. Lunney on. Thursday

a distinctly musical one, the hostess
had prepared a rare treat-Grand
Opera! 'Mrs. J. W. Willis read the
story of Rigoletto, the hunchback
jester of the Duke of Mantua, and,
as if by magic, just as the various
Characters were introduced, each
sang his or her part. All was well
carried out by means of the Victor
records. "Dearest Name," "Woman
is Fickle," and the final quartette, in
whloh the leading characters seem
to give full vent to their contending
emotions, were among the numbers.
Mrs. LeBlle <Stribllng told the beau
tiful story of Aida, captive daughter
of the king of (Ethiopia, who was
faithful to her lover, Rhndames,
even unto death. "Heavenly Alda"
was sung by Caruso. "The Return
Victorious," "Grand March," and
"?Farewell, Oh Earth," were much
enjoyed as they were reproduced on
the victrola. Mrs, Stribllng gave a
vivid picture of various scenes from
the opera and the farewell of the
lovers in the prison cell was excep
tionally line, tung by Caruso and
GadskC ? It was an unusual program
of real musical worth and educa
