The Fletcher Bill for Rural Credits
One of the most important pieces
of legislation before Congress is a
bill by Senator Fletcher, of Florida,
providing for a national system of
farm-land banks to facilitate agri agricultural
cultural agricultural credits. This measure is
one of vital concern to the common
country and peculiartly so to states
like Georgia, Florida and all others
of the South, where the welfare of
farming interests is the familiar and
fundamental seat of the people's
The movement towards rural cred credit

had its definite impetus from the
Southern Commercial Congress, of
which Senator Fletcher is president.

plan of an American commission to
study the rural credit systems that
have played so famous a part in the
development of European countries;
and on Senator Fletcher's initiative
Congress itself authorized the ap appointment

represent the government. These

spent several months in first-hand
investigation of land mortgage

Germany, England and other coun countries

perplexing the United States have
been patiently and successfully
worked out. Having gathered a
wealth of valuable suggestions from
these lands, the joint commission ad adapted

the American farm, and made up a
report on which helpful legislation
could be based. As chairman of the

was logically assigned the task of
preparing a specific bill. This, he
has done to the satisfaction of all
who are interested in improving the
farmer's credit cilities. His meas measure
