Nearly all of the tobacco town*-
are now feeling the result of the
recent .panic. Tin? banks that
carry the warehouse accounts, and
the other banks as well, have stop
ped paying dollar for dollar de
posited with them; they are paying
out only a limited amount in cash
and giving cashier's checks for the
balance. This is all right in tin
face of existing circumstances, antl
is no indication that the banks nre
not safe, they are only following
the lead of the banks in the inoues
centres in doing this. The local
banks cannot draw their deposits
from the banks in which thev havV
been placed, and iu most evety in
stance where the local batiks lmve
adopted the cashier's check method,
they were f >rced to do so on that

Tlie 1 action laketi l>v the bank*
of Greenville ami I'jtt County to
temporarily pay drafts in cashiers'
checks instead of cnsli, need not
give any^one the slightest uneasi
ness. It is done merely to tideovet
a titnfc when the money they have
deposited in other banks is not
available, ami to meet the demands
of business. The cashier's checks
which the banks give out are as
good as so much money, and will be
accepted as so much money in any
business transaction. I.et every
body keep confident and business
will go right 011 without interrup
tion. The banks should be com
mended for this action, for if such a
step had not been t iken to protect
business while money is being held
in the cities, there is no telling what
would have happened.— Greenville

Better Be ■ Hero li Circulation In
stead of • Martyr by Hoarding
(Newa & Observer.)
' To the Editor: I understand
the banks at Rocky M unt have
stopped paying full amount in cash
for checks, which leads ire to con
clude that it is suicidal to auy in
terest, whether it be nwrcha-t,
farmer, contractor, real estatedeal
er, or auv other occupation todraw
out their deposits from the banks
ami put it in idleness. It all has a
tendency to retard business and
depreciate the product of their
labor. Out of the six or seven
hundred thousand dollars of de
posits in the banksof Rocky Mov.nt
I would suppose that three-fourths
of Ihe amount is out on good papers
which is not due, .ar.d since out
bank can't draw from another it>
time of need, the liest thing t£ do
is to increase deposits all vou can
instead of drawing ou tbeui tin
necessarily. It is a gambler's
panic ami a people's scare, and
needs lieing extinguished instead ol
adding fuel to the flames. Bettei
