Representative Brand, of Athens, has introduced in the house a bill for creation of a federal farmers' loan corporation, which would lend money to owners of land whose lands are now lying idle and to the tenant class who own no land. "No similar bill has ever heretofore been introduced in congress," Brand said.

"My purpose in introducing it is not to take the place of any of the agricultural bills now pending in the house and senate, but to take care of a class of farmers in the United States, both landowners and tenants, who have quit farming for the want of money to operate the farms." The corporation would have a capital stock of $200,000,000 subscribed by the government. It would exist for five years, after the expiration of which no loans will be made. The money for capitalization, under the bill, would come from the nearly $300,000,000 now in the treasury ns the accumulated amount of excise taxes collected from cotton growers of the south between 1SG3 and 18G8, which the southern states contend was collected illegally. This money really belongs to tne farmers, said. and not to the government and therefore his bill would take nothing from the treasury.

Bills are now pending congress to allow the states where this money was collected to sue the federal government for its return. Secretary Authorized. The Brand bill gives authority to the secretary of agriculture to cooperate with federal and state agencies. Those who would be eligible for making loans are owners of land who need money and cannot otherwise borrow it; farmers who own no land but want to purchase and stock land for the purpose of farming; tenants who own no lands but want to farm, and need money for purchase of seed, food supplies, fertilizer, live stock and equipment. Loans could also be secured to discharge mortgages or other liens on farm lands which are now idle because of lack of money to operate them.

'Present loan agencies," Brand Said, "are not taking care of this class of farmers and thousands of thousands of acres of land, not only in Georgia and other southern states but in western states are lying idle because this class of farmers has no money and can't borrow it from existing agencies for the purpose of cultivating lands." Security Clauses. Security for loans is provided for as follows: By mortgage on real estate owned by. the farmer: by mortgage on real estate which the farmer desires to purchase for farming by mortgage or lien on personal property by ware- i. .1 .1 uuue lCLipis auu puiiuug uuruuiruis on agricultural products: for the ten ant class by mortgage or lien on grow ing crops or crops to be grown and loans either to the landlords or tenant class upon personal indorsement. The terms of loans are as follows: Loans on real estate shall run for 15 years, shall bear interest at the rate of two per cent per annum after five years from date of the loan, but shall not bear interest for the first five years.

Loans on personal property shall run for three years from the date of the loan, with interest at the rate of two per cent after the expiration of one year, with no interest for the first year. Loans on agricultural products and crops growing and to be grown, shall run for one year and shall bear interest at the rate of one per cent. Loans on personal indorsement, not in excess of $1,000, at the rate of two per cent. M. A.
