CAROLINAS DESERVE RECOGNI
gome months ago a number of bankers
in the Carolinas started a movement
which they hoped would reult in the es
, tablishment of a branch bank of the Fed
-1 eral ResoiVe System in the Carolinas.
Various statistics were preared and pre
sented to the controlling officers of the
reserve system: experts reported that
business in the two States warranted
the establishment of the bank: other
phases of the matter were thoroughly in
vestigated. However, it was the opinion
of tile reserve system officials that such
a bank is not needed.
Interest in the matter is renewed with
the announcement that Senator Carter
Glass has become interested in behalf of
the Carolinas. He gave liis endorsement
to the movement and promises to lend
such aid as he can. v
His influence may be just What Jms
been needed by bankers in the two States.
Senator Glass was' one of the men who
had a large part in the establishment of
the federal reserve system and he is in
timately acquainted with the financial
questions involved. In addition he is a
native of Virginia, has banking acquaint
ances throughout the two States and is
in position to know well the financial
needs of this section.
Interviewed on the subject the other
day in Spartanburg. Senator Glass stat
ed without reservation his conviction that
the Carol : nas are clearly entitled to a
branch of the Reserve System and he
pledged himself to do all in his power to
aid the bankers of the Carolinas who
have not given ap their campaign for
the establishment of the branch bank.
Senator Glass laid great emphasis on
the industrial growth of the Carolinas in
the past two years and the consequent
financial power that has come into the
possession of these sister States. He de
clared that these manifestations of wealth
and prestige could not be overlooked in
passing upon tile request for recognition
of these States by the Reserve Board
As summer reaches its peak there
comes annual threat of a coal strike. I
Already it is said the miners will quit
in the sole coal fields about September
first unless they are given more wages,
and apparently the mine operators are
determined not to grant any more wage
demands. In fact, it is rumored that the
operators will be more liable to cut the
wages if any changes in the present wage
schedule are made.
There is never a coal strike iu the
summer. The miners realize, of course,
that a strike in the summer months
would prove a failure so they wait until
v cold washer appro aches to make their
demand**. 9ke operators on the other
hand, had rather have the strike in cold
weather tpo, .for if such v condition ex
against‘the'uiiious and that public opin
ginning of the full season gives the oper
ator another excuse to raise the coal
prices. Coal is always cheaper in sum-
mer when there is less demand for it.
yet it costs just as much to mine it then
as it .does in the winter.
IT’S A CHRONIC WITH SOME PEW
The Charlotte Observer notices editor
ially that Senator Reed,, of Missouri, has
very much to say now about'President
Coolidge. The same streak in the Sena
tor that made him criticise and despise'
President Wilson has made him irttfr
very bitter denunciations of the present
There is nothing strange about this
after all. Senator Reed is just one of
those unfortunate persons who are al
ways against the man in power. He is
a destructive force first, last and always.
At a Democratic conference in Missouri
some dayij ago the Senator was present
and he made it a point to give his views
of the President. He said there is “as
great a difference between the Coolidge
of faet and the Coolidge of fiction as there
is between an oil field prospectus display
ing a gusher, and the barren hole in the
ground which in fact does not exist.”
There are people like this. No one
ever pleases them, yet they have a cer
tain power that keeps them in office.

“A-good-twenty miles." said 1.
Summerloe gave a groan.
“I, fop one, could never get there.
Surely I hear those brutes still
howling upon onr track."
As he spoke, from the dark re
cesses of the woods we heard far
away the'jibbering cry of the ape
men. The Indians once more set
up a feeble wail of fear.
“We must move, and move
quick!" wiid * Lord John. “You
help Summerlee. young fellah.
The Professor ... proceeded to lec
ture upon h|m as if he were a pot
ted specimen in a class-room.
These Indians will carry stores.
Now, then, come along before they
can see us." .
In less than half-an-hour we had
reached our brushwood retreat and
concealed dutwelves. All day we
heard the excited calling of the
spa-men in the direction of ear old
camp, but none of them came our
way, and the tired fugitives, red
and white, had a long, deep sleep.
I was dozing myself In the eve
ning when someone plucked my
sleeve, and I found Challenger
kneeling bealdi me.
"You keep a diary of these
events, and you expect eventually
to publish it, Mr. Malone,” said he.
"I am only hero aa a Press re
porter,” I answered.
“Exactly. You may have heard

ity. Did it not strike you?"
"A most remarkable creature,”
And the Professor, much eased
In his mind, settled down t<s his
slumber once more.
“Those Were the Real Conquests"
We had imagined that our pur
suers, the ape-men, knew nothing
of our brushwood hiding-place, but
we were soon to find out our mis
take. There was no sound in the
woods—not a leaf moved upon the
trees, and all was peace around us
—but we should have been warned
by our first experience bow cun
ningly and how patiently these
creatures can watch and wait until
their chance comes. Whatever fate
may be mine throfigh life, I am
very sure that I shall never be
nearer death than I was that morn
ing. But I will tell you the thing
in its due order. S
We all awoke exhausted after
the terrific emotions and scanty
food of yesterday. Summerlee was
still so weak that it was an effort ~
for him to stand; but the old man
was full of a sort of surly couragp
which would never admit defeat
A council was h«id, and it wax
agreed that we should wait quietly
for an hour or two where we were,
have our muqh-needed breakfast,
and then make our way across the
plateau and round the central lake
to the caves where aSy observa
tions had shown that the Indiana
lived. We relied upon the fact that
we rould count upon the good word
of these whom we had rescued
to ensure a warm welcome from
their fellows. Then, with our mis
sion accomplished and possessing
a fuller knowledge of the secret*
of Maple White Land, we should
turn our whole thoughts to tha
vital problem of our escape and ra
turn. Even Challenger was reads
to ndnitt that we should then have
done all for which we had come,
and that cur first duty from that
time onwards was to carry back
to .civilization the amazing dIF
coveries wc had made.
We were able now to take a more
leisurely view of the Indians whom
we had rescued. They were small
men. wiry, active and well-built,
with lank black hair tied ug in a
bunch behind tjielr heads with 9
leathern thong, and leathern also
were (heir loin clothes. Their faces
were hairless, well-formed, and
good-humored. The lobes of their
ears, hanging ragged and bloody,
showed that they had been pierced
for some ornaments which their
captors had torn out. Their speech,
though unintelligible to us, was
fluent among themselves, and as
they pointed to each other and ut
tered the word "Accala” many
times over, we gathered that this
was the aa. is of the nation. Oc
casionally, with faces which were
convulsed with fear and hatred,
they shook their clenched hands at
the woods round and cried “Doda!
Doda!" which was surely their
term for their enemies.
"What do you make of them.
Challenger?” asked Lord John.
"One thing is very clear to me, and
that is that the little chap with the
front of his head shaved Is a
chief among them.”
It was Indeed evident that this
man stood apart from the others,
and that they never ventured to
address him without every sign ot
deep respect. He seemed to be
the youngest of them all, and yet.
so proud and high was his spirit
that, upon Challenger laying bit
great hand upon his head, he start
ed like a spurred horse and, with
a quick; flash of his dark eyea,
moved further away from'the Pro
fessor. Then, placing his hand
upon his breast and holding him
self with great dignity, he uttered
the word “Maretas" several times.
The Professor, unabashed, seised
the nearest Indian by the shoulder
and proceeded to lectors upon him
