MUST RAISE TAXES'
SOUTH CAROLINA ESTIMATES FOR RUNNING EXPENSES EXCEEDS REVENUE. CONSIDER THE TAX QUESTION 1f All Estimates Asked For Are Allowed Taxes Will Have to Be Raised Two Mills to Prevent Deficit in the Treasury. Columbia. ? South Carolina faces a grave problem, acording to the estimates of expenses made by the various state officials and heads of departments in the matter of appropriations and income for the year 1914. According to the comptroler general if the general assembly makes j all the appropriations asked for, the . tax levy will have to be seven and threetenths mills as against five and I one-fourth last year. Comptoller General Jones says that the state's revenue for 1914 from taxes estimated and based upon the ' present assesment of $296,441,120, at a rate of five and one-fourth mills on the dollar would be $1,556,315.88. To this he adds the estimated income J from sources other than taxes such as insurance license fees, fees of the secretary of state, corporation license j fees, income tax, support of the rail-1 road comissioner, etc., to the amount of $310,925. Mr. Jones says: "And we have a total estimated revenue for ordinary expenses for 1914 of $1,867,-, 240.8. "The estimated levy of five and ' one-fourth mills is the same as last year. It will be seen by reference to ! the amounts of appropriations asked ; for, $2,47S,440.32, that they will exceed the estimated revenue of the state under a levy of five and onefourth mills by $611,299.44. If you made all the apprQpriations asked for, it would be necessary to make a rate of seven and three-tenths mills on the dollar to raise them.

W. Neville, Noted Greenville Cotton Trader, Talks of the Conditons of Future. I Greenville.?"I am an optimist, always an optimist," said George W. Neville, formerly president of the New York cotton exchange. The statement was made recently when Mr. Neville was asked concerning the business conditions of the nation. He was in Greenville on a busines visit to C. S. Webb, his partner. , Discoursing upon the outlook, Mr. ' Neville said that the New York bank-' ers saw no bugaboo in the new cur-' rency law, that they were very hopeful concerning the outlook for business, and especially welcomed that section of the federal reserve act which provides that the government shall recognize commercial paper as collateral. Hitherto, said the speaker, commercial paper has been an "undigestible lump, so far as the ultimate | banker is concerned." Now this lump i is an asset, more than ever before. The reserve act was characterized as I a "marvel in its way." Its workings,! cnifl lio will ho honofioiol ?l O it ! the currency flexible without working hardship. Wall street, said Mr. Neville, and New York business generally, are not i conspiring to rob the rest of the coun*' try. The business interests did oppose j the currency bi lias it passed the ! house, but regard the final form of ! the measure as acceptable. A promi-1 nent banker recently said to Mr. Nev-' ille that the new law was seven- J eighths good, and that the other eighth could be corrected. The speaker said he was sure that President Wilson would appoint only fit men to the federal reserve board, and then he went on to say that this board was almost, if not quite, as im-, portant as the supreme court of the ! United States. It will control a great branch of the government. The loca-' tion of the reserve cities, said Mr. I NevileA was to his mini one of the ' ' - ' ' '' ' " & means?Misery?Worry?Big I lith means food and clothing fo ou, whenever you don't feel rig] off worse sickness, protect yoi )tect you against money risk, b 'II give you back your monc lest Remedy latter what the cause. rou and make you feel pood for a few kness, and builds you up to a healthy, ft real builder cf healthy nerves, rich ition.

He does not see how 12 of these cities can be decided upon, as he does not see where the requisite capital could be secured for so many reserve banks. That the nomination of John Skelton Williams is not strongly opposed by New York, is the opinion of Mr. Neville. Improve Waterway. Cherleston?Federal improvement of the inland waterway from Charleston to Savannah to secure on available channel depth of seven feet at low water and channel widths of from 75 to 100 feet, increased at entrances and on curves, at an estimated cost of $100,000, of which $90,000 is for actual construction and $10,000 for maintenance, which was recommended recently by the war department, is a matter of vital interest to commercial intersts of Charleston and Savannah and towns situated along the route; already the votes of approval of the project has been heard in Charleston.! The improvement would mean much to the commercial life of both Charleston and Savannah, as well as the section through which the route passes, in that it would permit of a . very material increase in the amount of commerce now handled on these waterways. The matter should be of interest in Columbia aiso as it would give the Columbia-Charleston waterway a greater opening, putting Columbia in touch with Savannah. Low Grade Corn. Columbia.?Commissioner Watson of the department of agriculture, in view of the many cases that have arisen in the last few days, wishes to warn all merchants in this state against the purchase of Western corn. In the past few days shipments have been found in the markets of Columbia and elsewhere and have been taken off the market by the inspectors. At Clio recently a shipment of 200 bushels of fourth grade corn was found, and while it was not seized, it was tied up until the original shippers requested it resbipped to a point j KsiiMBli i' $**? : U '*- :.-.-, * - > ':'/r ^ ^- ;r' a-n miwm^.arTiii w wian mnur a hiwiw *i >ills?Debts!
