IAN. VOL. XXXI. RALEIGH, IV. C. THURSDAY, MAY 1G. 1U13. No. 1H THE SOUTH t'P IX AIIMS. Protest From AH Over the South , Pouring in on Democratic Con- s Kratsnira Against I'rw Trade Tar- j iff IUIL 1 Washington Post. "A day or two ago I read in The Post that the Republicans have i about abandoned hope of defeating , the Underwood tariff bill in the Sen- ate or even of securing any sub-,,. stantial amendments to the bill. said If. A. Chadwick, a banker of Jackson, Miss., at the Raleigh. "Hut I think the developments of the last few days may change the situation within a short time, and I base my belief on the fact that on Saturday afternoon I was in the office of a prominent Southern Senator and saw upon his desk an enormous number of letters that had not been opened. Upon remarking to the Senator's sec retary that he was careless in not looking after his correspondence, I was informed that he had exactly 1,27 2 letters which he had been un- able even to ouen up to that time. and that he had in the preceding day or two opened and briefed more than 500, and in many cases answered them. The secretary further told me that practically every one of the 1,272 represented the protest of some constituent of the Senator against this or that item of the tariff bill. I learned, too, that this was . . not an isolated case, but that fully 7." per cent of the members of the Senate are receiving protests liter- ally by the bushel every day. "With such a storm of protest, I do not believe that it is possible for the finance committee to resist the demand for hearings, nor do I be- lieve it will be possible to pass the Underwood bill in the Senate with- out very material and very radical amendments in nearly all sched- tiles."

Strange to say, they are coming in greater vol- ume from the Southern States and from Democrats. We learn from a number of sources that these protests that the proposed Democratic tariff bill will not only close most of the manufae- turing enterprises in the South, and throw laborers out of employment, but that the value of farm products ; have been and will be most serious- j ly affected.

Also, it was pointed out that the legislation that the Democratic party is threatening to put upon the coun try, is enough to make Republicans sink minor differences and get to gether to redeem the nation, as a pa- triotic duty. The Democratic Currency Bill. Many Democratic leaders, as well the country generally,, ha ve been I prised that President Wilson ! as surprised that President Wilson should strongly insist that the cur rency bill, desired by the bankers, should be rushed through the pres- jent session of Congress. Attention is also called to the fact that the Democratic party did not point out to" tha country, in the last com paign, any specific measure of cur rency reform for which they stood. Everybody is now wondering what kind of currency legislation Presi dent Wilson means to force through. One prominent Western Congress man observed today, that all he knew about the present currency i e s was that he warned to endorse the Aldrich currency bill In a speech. I ; in the last campaign, and that re cently the President had been quot ed as saying that It .ras important to set up a currency bill that would meet the approval of the banker. Within the last few days there has been much general discussion about this proposed currency bill, and in connection with the discus sion there has arisen a susirestlon hat the fact that the President is t-o strongly In favor of a currency hi miht ,hrntt. BAm .ui,. about where the large Dernocr itic ramnaitrn fnnic p9m frrw luut ci:m. niotm mer. One thing is certain, and that is- that the country will watch, with U today, to understand the difference; between the currency laws that Wall Street wants and the kind of lw that the people want. A Big Pie Counter Scheme. It has just announced by the Postmaster General thru the Presi- dent will revoke the orders issued by President Tafr. placing all of the fourth class postmasters tinder the civil service, and that a civil ser- vice examination will be held to se- left these postmasters. It hvs just . . - developed, however, rhar the plan is not to appoint the postmasters that receive the best grades in this exam- ination, but that the Postmaster General, after holding the examina- tion, shall be allowed to select any- one of the three highest that pass; the examination. That will mean that if a Hepubli-1 can should pass the examination and should secure a grade of 19 per cent of a possible 10 per cent, and if another Republican should pass the examination and secure, say a grade of S3 per cent, and that if one could be turned down and the Dem ocratic mediocre politician, securing the grade of only 70 could be ap pointed. This is merit, under the i . , ... pecially to study the system of cheap farm loan banks, which exist inmost ; that the tnP of this commission will result in manv reforms that will jmake farminS more Profitable and country life more attractive, ' For half a century there has been an alarming drift of high class far- mers to the cities. leavinS negroes or low class tenants, mostly foreign ers, to conduct the farms.

TI . However, it was really not neces- sary to send a commission to Pnrone ! reading a"d formed people. The; these farm banks a success, has been the securing of a sufficient quantity of cheap capital to be loaned to the farmers at from three to four per cent interest. This country is in a position today to solve this question, by using the enormous deposits in the Postal Sav ings Bank, on which the government pays only 2 1-4 per cent interest, for that purpose. This money could be loaned to the farmers at three or ; four per cent and then leave a profit large enough to cover all costs of 'the transaction, and besides leave a' sinking fund. This country has been lending enormous sums of money To the na- enormous sums or money tional banks without interest, and has only recently began to charge i the banks two per cent interest on government money. If the postal savings banks should not furnish sufficient money to finance these farm loan banks, then this money that is being loaned to national banks at two per cent interest could be loaned to the farm banks at even a greater rate of interest, to supple ment the funds from postal savings banks. Here is a great field for a little statesmanship and common sense. BRIEF NEWS ITEMS. The Grand Udse of Odd Fellow or .North Carolina u! hold it "nth annua.1 meeting In Greensboro. May 20. 21 and 22.
