Too Much Consolidation
The contest for'supremacy of the American financial
System seems to favor the New York banks, which are
about to put the Federal Reserve System out of busi
They are rapidly consolidating the banks every
where, until the day will soon tome when the Federal
Reserve Banks will have no more power than a free
negro had before the slaves were emancipated.
Of course, the New York banks are so'strongly
•fortified that they are able to ignore the Federal Re
serve Banks* and fix interest rates, not only for them
selves but for the other batiks of the country.
Now, with the new consolidations, there is little
hot* for the average man. who will find himself more
dependent, in a business way, than he has been at
any time in the past fifty years.
There is- too much consolidation in this country.

Hard luik seems to have struck the shipbuilders.
That fellow Shearer has told on-thenn and the United

years has been on their account:
They have certainly been a lutky bunch of fellows

These gorups of profiteers have made it their busi
i ness to get England to curse Germany, Germany to
| curse America, America to curse Japan, and Japan,
in turn, to curse England. They employed a type of
j propaganda that produces suspicion and hatred and
| infuriates the public mind until it will stand for a
; heavy program of war and navy expenditures. Ol
i course, these fellows pay high prices for this kind of
propaganda, but it will pay them in high-priced ship-
building contracts. They, however, have other expen
ditures They have to play lots of friendship and
buy an occasional naval officer and use heavy tips in
This senatorial investigation is a fine thing for the
people, who would not stand the acts committed in
our own government a single minute if they just
knew how much robbery a,tid stealing has gone on.
It is very gratifying to know that things are far bet
ter than during the Harding administration. The
Woodrow Wilson administration was clean and honest,
though extravagant, during the war years. The Hard
ing administration will go down in history as the graft
and theft administration. The Coolidge administra
tion, in itself, was one of reasonable honor, though
some branches needed investigation. The Hoover ad
ministration has the real opportunity to serve the
American j>eople, and to do so should investigate
every act committed by any branch of the govern
ment for the last ten years. If they will, it will be
surprising how hiuch graft will be uncove;ed.
Tobacco Grading Pays
Tobacco grading helfx-d South Carolina farmers a
bout 4.58 tents per pound on the Lake City (S. C.)
market for-the week ending September 14.
The Government graders graded 121,933 pounds
during the week, for which the fanners paid S cents
per hundred for grading, a sum of $609.66. But they
received $5,584.53 more than their neighbors did for
the same number of pounds who did not have theirs
gracjMw, These figures are taken from the rejwrt of
tKe United States Department of Agriculture.
This is proof that buyers who .have to grade 300
piles |>er hour, or 5 piles per minute, do a very slip
shod business for the farmer, and it is iin|>ossible for a
half dozen buyers to pro|>erly examine a pile of to
bac«p in 12 seconds, as has to be done under the bel
ter skelter method now prevailing.
The farmer loses because buyers under-grade as a
matter of safety to themselves.
How To Dry Up Washington
What Washington needs is to confiscate all the li
quor in the office of every person in the city serv
ing in any public capacity including, of course, Sen
ators and Congressmen—and their "ca,ddies. Then
we would have the city half dry. Then confiscate the
liquor of all the lobbyists who make a gptSCMty of
wining" Congressmen for~the purpose of forming
ix-cial contacts with them, and then, send the lobby
its to prison with Sinclair and his associates. The
hty wil then l>e three-fourths dry. It wjll leave only
'he fast women and gamblers to sup|»rt the boot
iggers, and this will "bust" most of them.
THE LETTER BOX
I regret to have to reply to the ar
ticle of Jhe clerk of the Kehukee As
sociation, but I find it necessary.
This trouble in Smithwicks Creek
Church was brought on and waged by
those out of that church and some in
no.cruch, therefore it has been a dis
order from the beginning.
Article 13 of the Articles of Faith
rods as follows: "We believe that
every church is independent in matters
of discipline; and that association, coun
cils, and conferences of several minis
ters or churches are not to impose on
the churches_ the keeping, holding, or
maintaining any principle or practice
contrary to the churches' judgment."
Now, those few wrongfully accused
oui church's principles and practice,
and, though they had been right in
their accusation; they still would not
have the right to "impose on the church
tht keeping, holding, or maintaining
any principle or practice contrary to
the church's judgment,". so you see
their first step was out of order, and
so it was they came into our midst
anil began to criticize and stir up
>trife, and the clerk declares the church
was hopelessly divided, and because of
the prestige and the dictation of that
few the church was soon in awful con
dition. He also says that correspond
ing churches recognized the minority.
A few of them did, but without any
knowledge of the matter whate\Ser but
by the same dictators. It his'been
acknowledged by. one of the three that
helped to fix the plan to work it
through the union for the minority to
be recognized, so it was put through
the union in the same way. He says
the majority was not recognized by
thi association because their conduct
| didn't merit the fellowship of the as
iu ciation. Conduct was not questioned,
to our regret The majority faction
is composed of men and women of
upright walk and godly conversation
and of honest report. As conduct was
not mentioned in the association, if
there be any interested we would be

glad to have them question. Now, it
was not conduct but a sham and rec
ommendation and manipulation and by
the aid of a few who were keenly in
terested in the minority faction, and
this was done by ignoring the advice
and counsel of the oldest and brainiest
minister in the association, who told
them they should receive neither fac
tion, but let it remain with the church.
And that is our contention today.
Now, I want to refer you to the
17th and last article of faith, wherein
yav will read, "The decision of matters
in such associations are not to be im
posed, or in any wise binding, on the

I hope these articles of the by-laws
will be sufficient to disclose the par
tiality that has been used.
