',The men were at work in the battery
compartment of the E-2 putting
the new Edison batteries through a
rheostat to measure the voltage and
the explosion occurred in that compartment.
The battery will generate
no kind of gas and there was no gaso- j
line on board. The engine was of the
oil-burning Disel type.''
Pending the appointment of an official
board of inquiry Rear Admiral
Usher named a temporary investigating
committee as follows: Lieut. Command;
r Pope, Washington, commander
of the recei-.ing ship Maine; Lieut. L.
M. Stewart of the torpedo boat destroyer

commander of the submarine division]
to which the E-2 was attached. This
committee immediately be^an to take
The opinion was expressed that the
process of withdrawing the charge
from the batteries might have caused
the formation of hydrogen gas. The
explosions of that nature have been
frequent on submarines of all navies
, and several slight'ones .have occurred
on American boats.
The E-2 was the only vessel in the
world equipped with the Edison nickel
batteries and she made her first trip
with them December 7, last. It was
reported that the new batteries gave'
better speed with less fuel.
Thp Edisnn battery, experiments
have proved, generates nearly double
I the ordinary amount of hydrogen dur!
ing the process of charging, but on
discharge or while lying idle gives off
much less. During the battery trials
there were reports from her officers of
an undue amount of hydrogen. The
boat made one trip with observers
aboard and it was reported that while
in operation not enough gas was generated
to be dangerous.
There were three other submarines
in the dry dock, but they were about
50 feet from the E-2, which had been
undergoing repairs since December 30
mhere were no torpedoes or gasoline
aboard any of them. Secretary Daniels
was at luncheon at the 'National
Democratic club here when informed
of the explosion. Rear 'Admiral Usher
was there also and the commandant
left for the yard immediately.
Lieut. Charles M. Cooke, commander
of the E-2, was not at the navy yard
when the explosion occurred.
Commander Daniel fW. Wurtsbaugh,
a navy department aide, reported to
Secretary Daniels this afternoon the
result of his preliminary inquiry into

took place. It was an internal
explosion, there being no apparent
damage on the outside."

reports that the new Edison storage
batteries in the E-2 were being rep
charged at the time of the accident
caused navy department officials to
conclude that hydrcgen gas had ig-,

that the batteries were being disj

"Ano/ner factor of the warehouse

the law which authorizes the state to :

under the law the full credit of the

the state from developing into a
substantial competitor in territory so,

Of course, the real purpose is to crush
out the state system, if possible, not
for the credit which the holders of cotton
would receive upon t'ne receipts
[ which would be issued by this monster
i merger, but, as explained in the fol'owing
sentence in this propaganda
proposed by the gentleman from New
York, representing the Northern mil
"It can not be doubted that a combination
of the Atlantic States and
Standard companies for the purpose
which I am planning would produce an4
enlarged enterprise "whose earnings i
would exceed the aggregate earnings
of the two existing companies."
It is very clearly and very frankly
Of course the ultimate purpose looks
further than the profits from storage
it looks to the control of the price to

cotton, dog tails, etc., which has
been kept in New York for the express
purpose of depressing prices, but
liver cotton fit for commercial purposes.
Hence, in order to retain their
power to fix the price of cotton, they
must have control of the spot cotton
and this giant merger aims to take the
cotton away from the farmers so that
the price can continue to be manipulated.
The only remedy for this is for
the farmer to have adequate means' of
storage at home and keep his cotton
out of the hands of those who would

warehouse system is to enable the
farmer to carry the surplus, for it is
the surplus of any product which depresses
the price. 'Tihe farmer must
either carry the surplus himself or
permit his enamies to -use it as a club.';
It is a very subtle attempt to retain
control of the cotton crop, and were
it not for the South Carolina and Texas
state warehouse systems it would have
already been accomplished without
anybody knowing what was being done,
and I am satisfied that if I had not

I did last fall, South Carolina would
nave ben in their hands now. This is
really a violation of the Sherman antitrust
law, and of the constitution and
statute laws of this state, and the facts
are'sufficient for the government, bor*
state- and national, to take action.
I am informed that on December 22,
191.">, the signer of the call, Mr. Shaw,
met certain Columbia gentlemen in
Greenwood. It is significant that the
daily press Carried no notice of this
important conf, rence, although, doubtless.
they were well represented.
The moneyed interests nave gone
ahead in Atlanta, and are now constructing
a $1,000,000 warehouse in the
attempt to prevent the adoption of a
state warehouse law in Georgia. I am
informed that recently 6,000 bales of j
cotton were brought to Atlanta irom;
Oklahoma, 2,000 miles, past three of
the greatest ports in the South. Of
course, the expense is borne by the
producer. This concentration warehouse
will lend 10 cents a pound on
the cotton, and w'nen it is deemed advisable,
a sufficiently large combination
can force down the price, call for
more margins, and the man 2,000 miles
away would be powerless. The cotton
could be taken in by the warehouse at
10 cents a pound, while on the conti1

for 40 cents a pound. The method is ,
so simple that it would be incredible
that the cotton growers of the South
have stood patiently tinder the burden
so long, were not the evidence before
our eyes every day.
Essential to Success.
In concluding this general report, I .
desire to say that the State of South ,
Carolina should either get behind its j
warehouse system with. all of its power I
or it should abandon the attempt and
confess that .those in charge of the
state government are unwilling to ,
throw around the farmers that protec- jj
tion to which they are entitled in the *
conduct of a business which is the
basis of the state's prosperity. We
can not pursue the policy. "I nibble."
The enemy, with its thorough organi/ation,
has too complete a monopoly
in those munitions of war, money and
credit. The state warehouse system
should not be doomed to a death from
starvation, with only lip service. The
strong support which it needs, and of
which .it has demonstrated its worthi
ness, will never come from wily politicians,
glorying in ephemeral power,
hut from representatives of the people
who have heard liie demand of the
musses for a sound economic policy of
"live and let live."
In the beginning, the success of this
departure in government was bound to
depend very largely upon the personality
of tlie commissioner. If this continued
to be true, the system would be
practically worthless as a business
proposition. I am as rapidly as possible
placing it on a basis of separate
departments, where any good business
man, with a practical experience In
'orcro affairs nnn handle it. Personal
v I would be glad to be relieved of
the great responsibility, but I will not
be placed in the position of a cowardly
shirking of the duty which I owe to
those who have large sums invested
in warehouses, and'those who have
'millions loaned on the receipts be- '
cause of their faith in the establishment
by me of the system upon an

placed in the position of not fully recognizing
the duty whic'n I owe to the
cotton growers of the South generally.
If, however, in the wisdom of your
honorable body, you should see fit to
shift the responsibility to other shoulders,
I will cheerfully accept the situation
and go into t'ne trenches as a
private in this cruel and relentless industrial
war. ' y
