Columhin, Aug. 15.-"If 4 0 years of marketing under tho old system have left this section impoverished, except for abnormal prlcos paid dur ing the war, then is it not at least time to begin to look for somo other system of marketing?" asks W. W. Bradley, S ta to Bank Examiner, in a statement issued to-day, strongly en dorsing the co-operative marketing of cotton and tobacco, and urging tho banks ot the State to back tho two associations. >.* 1 Mr. Bradley declares that the suc cess of tho associations rests inore largely with tho banks than with any other force in the State. The plan will succeed, ho declared, Just tu.soutar a^tft?^^ ceed. "Thoro is nothing in the problem that ls Inimical to their interests, and there is every probability of material prosperity to the banks, ns wVdV aa the communities they serve, in promoting this marketing plan," declares Mr. Bradley in enumerating some of tho reasons why tho banks should support tho associations.
