During the last two or Hirer years there lias been much discussion with reference to "land loan hank.-" plan ned on thc system in ICtiropean coun try. These ure in fact nothing more nor less than building and loan . (im punies, ami it wi- had in the I'll it ed Slates a building and loan plan for fiuuiicitig tie- flinns. Un- country would be a great dial better oil than il is, just a* tia- building and loan notably Charlotte, N. c. Mr. D. A Tompkins, ot Charlotte, who ls ?me of tin- greatest bell?-vers in tlu> building ami loan plan tor cities, bas declared bis advocacy ol the building ami, thuin plan for fat ms. After pointing out thal lb? people henelitted in the towns an- th?- clerks and tin- mechanics, and their purpose ls to save money anil build, lie con cludes thai with proper encourage ment the purpose of the tenant farm ers would be to save money and lo buy ami improve farms. How many farms then- are in Hie stat?? of South Carolina Unit are earn ing nothing lu-cause then' is no way to Induce tenants to occupy the tall inn down cabins and the owners of Hu- farms ?in- unable to build new tenant houses! These and other such deplorable conditions might be reme died. There is absolutely no legislation necessary to start one of these insti tutions, writes Mr. Tompkins. Killy farmers lu the country can organize any time, and without any further law than a clerk of the court charter. They can either have a secretary and treasurer of their own or they can get some banking institution in town to keep their books for them. The mem bers of these societies save their money and then loan il to their mem bers as they need lt, precisely as Hie building and loan does with its mem bers. The building and loan might be called a "?-aVings and building as sociations." These farmer land loan hanks might equally be called "sav ings and farm Improvement associa tions." Some European governments, after the furmers" banks succeeded wonderfully, have aprpoprlated some sums of money to loan through these Institutions. Hut this is a semblan for politics sake. The real work of the land loan bank is like Hie work of our building and loan association, not in the least aided bv government at all. There would be an advantage In dealing with some commercial bank, In that they could get money on short loans through the bunk to loan to members until they look in enough money of their own to loan. There fore, there ls nothing in the world necessary to be done except for '20. :10 or 50 furmers to organize a land loan credit society and make their ar rangements to have their books and money kept and then go ahead. Perhaps some day some enterpris ing farmers and a good enterprising bank will get together ou this subject and start the ball in motion. The building and loan associations gener ally have about 700,000.000 of accum ulated money. This ls the money of the clerks and mechanics aggregated throughout Hie country. If the farm ers bad $700,000,000 accumulated it would make u vast difference to the agricultural Interests of this country. NEW ADMINISTRATION. It ls private citizen Leo G. Holle man today. He is a citizen of whom this city should be proud, for the whole state of South Carolina knows him and is proud of him. He has made a good record ns mayor, and bud he been less of a mau and more of a politician he -would be acclaimed even more enthusiastically than he ls. He has been honorable nnd manly In the discharge of his duties; he has loved the city and Us Interests; he has been Immovable when once his mind was made up as to the proper thing to do for the good of the com munity. He has tired of tho cares and responsibilities and thankless ness of tho work, and has been glad to relinquish the burden. Mayor Godfrey will give the city a good administration. Ile is well pre pared for the duties of the otllee. His long training in the newspaper field in addition to hts more definite train ing lu tho otllee of city clerk give bimi tho foundation upon which to make his administration active, progressive and successful. This paper will be found supporting every progressive move of the new council and will do so with earnestness and pleasure, and we would like to see all of the citizens of Anderson cooperate with Mayor Godfrey and tho new council. The new aldermen, some of them not new to the service, will give a good account of themselves, we feel quito sure. Messrs. Harton, Carter and Spearman have served In '-nundi before ?nd the now members. Messrs. King. Tate and Dobbins, aro success ful and active young business men. This present city council hn-s an op portunity. Wo hope that lt will have the vision to appreciate the future to the fullest, and we believe that the greatest era of prosperity and devel opment of Anderson is nt hand. It can come only by cooperation. We trust that tho city council, the cham ber of commerce and the civicasso clatlon and the newspapers and all citizens of Anderson will stand to gether fi" right and progress and the making <>i u bigger ?uni butter and mon- beautiful city.
