He Suffered From Cold in Scandinavia?Xo
Sign of Peace
Columbia, Jan. 24.?Andrew J. Bethea,
lieutenant governor, who returned
yesterday from his peace trip to
Europe as the guest of Henry Ford,:
gave out the following interview:
"From the day I left New York till j
mv return yesterday my trip was a ;
continuous round of trying but thrilling
experiences. It seems almost like
a miracle that I am left to tell the I
"I found the bitter cold in the Scan-'
dinavian countries too much for me :
and in Sweden I nearly succumbed to
its rigor. It was here in Stockholm
that I was seriously sick for several
days, causing me to miss an early!
boa: on my return trip home. A ter- j
rible storm at sea still further delayed
my arrival.
''The trip over was without particu'- i
lar incident except for the two days;
and nights in the harbor at Kirkwall!
when we were prisoners of a British j

to have torpedo boats lurking around j
and pointing t'neir guns at you, butthat

the boundary line beyond which no;

The danger zone in which many mines
are afloat also gives you a ticklish
feeling and is not good for the nerves
if you can not sleep.

their time to skiing, the great national
sport, which consists of sliding and

a warm welcome to a beautiful and ;
thrifty modern city. Wages and goods

"In Copenhagen I left the Ford party i
to hurry home. To do this, it was nec- j
essary for me to have my passport j
vised for belligerent countries. Only j
as a special courtesy from German and 1
English consuls was I able to accom
plish this, for our country, except in
rare cases, grants no passports to bel- j

"From Germany I passed on through
Holland by way of The Hague and I
crossed the North sea to England. The I
North sea is literally a network of j
submarines and mines and no ship'
dare to cross in the night time. The
mine sweepers followed our ship for
miles and miles and I saw the big guns j
shoot and explode mine after mine. I j
passed within sight of Ostendt, now j
held by the Germans, and could hear ,
the continuous roar of the cannon j
from the trenches near Flushing.

"But you ask, Wnat of the Ford
peace expedition? Did it do any good?
Measured by motive and purpose, my |
answer is emphatically 'Yes.' No one j
can measure influence. Xo one has a !
riaht to say that a movement such as
this is of no avail. If you believe as I
do that every good word spoken and
every good act done is taken into ac- t
j count and blesses somebody somewhere
at sometime, then I think that a
movement for world peace, however
futile it may seem, must be credited
with being worth while. Of Henry
Ford as a big-hearted, unselfish man
too much can not be said in praise.
He has set the world, especially rich
men. a great example. He is willing
to spend his fortune, as he told me, for
pcac-e and he has demonstrated to the
wor.ci nis mieresi m a ^icai wusc.
Then. too. the public must remember
that his peace efforts are not finished
and no cne can tell what may yet be
accomplished. I heard him say that if
ht> could only scratch the surface in
the movement, if he could only end the
war a day sooner he would be willing
to make any sacrifice of money and
means at his command.
"At any rate the Ford expedition has
caused the nations of the earth to
think and talk for a little while of
peace. That in itself is worth while
for it carries with it the wonderful j
power of suggestion. In this time of
madmss when a world is ablaze with |
war?it is a good thing to think of
peace, talk of peace and to work for j
peace. The world would be a much
better place in which to live if we had
more men of the type of Henry Ford.
And there would be an end to war."

Committee Waiting for 0. K. From the j
Junior Senator From South Car- j

The State.
Was'nington, Jan. 24.?Careful investigation
made here today to ascer- j
tain when action would be taken on ,
the cases of W. H. Coleman, recently |
nominated to be postmaster at Co-j
lumbia, and Col. T. J. Cunningham,:
recommended by Congressman Finley
, for the same position at Chester, reveals
the fact that in all probability

D. Smith loosens up the situation.
So far as Columbia is concerned it j
appears that the senate committee on
postoffices has been waiting to know
Whether Mr. Coleman was satisfactory
to the junior senator from South Caro- I
lina. The latter, it is understood, will j
in time inform the committee that he j
hao no nHiArtirm to the nomination be- j
ing confirmed.
In the Chester matter the situation
appears to be different. Senator Smith,
when Col. Cunningham is nominated,
if, in fact, this is done, will inform the
pcstoffice committee of his position. It j
is said here that this nomination will
not "get by" Senator Smith and a live-;
ly time may be expected as a r&sult i
should the nomination be made and ,
get into executive session of the senate.-j
Congressman Finley and Senator i
Tillman some time ago agreed that j
Col. Cunningham was satisfactory to I
them and he was recommended to the
postmaster general for appointment,
| Senator Smith being not consulted,
i But there is a wide difference be
| tween a recommendation and a confirmation.

imhfiss9<lop Bernstorff and Secretary
Lansing Draw Up Final Terms
For Settlement*
Washington, Jan. 26?The Lusitiania
agreement was redrafted today by
Count von BernstOTff, the German ambassador,
and Secretary Lansing, to
represent the views of the United ' 3
States and was forwarded to the Ber- /
Tin fnreisn office. Word of whether the
German government will accept it in
its present tentative form is expected * !
in about a week. \
The last proposal from Germany was
understood to be unacceptable to the
United States because it aid not aaiun
ft:II liability for the lives of all the
neutrals lost in the destruction of the
hner, although the German government
agreed to pay as a matter of
iriendship to the United States. This
Government contends <.he claims should
be paid as a matter of law and of
right. jy
If, as is intimated today, tne new
draft is fully acceptable to the United
States there is no reason for believ
i.ig it will not be acceptable to Germany,
because Count von Bernstorff i3
known to be acting under wide latitude
onferred by his government for the
negotiations. '

South is the poor tenant's cabin as it
stands in the edge of the cotton field
unshielded from the hot sun in sum- f
mer or from the cold winds of winter.
I don't think a landlord should build
mansions for nis tenants, but I think
he should build neat cottages for them,
and set out a small orchard around it
to supply the tenant and his family
with fruit. This will cause them to
take more interest in keeping the place j,
up, and in that way will pay the landlord
for his trouble.
The landlord and tenant should .be
