TO LIFT PRICE
'.iOUSK SUGGEST A
Dn Fourth of the Present
Crop and Hold it for
Tho greatest question before
business mon of tho cotton growing
States, to-day, is: "Can tho balance
of th H cotton cou bc sold at a bet
ter |>r co?" That tho present price
is pear or below tho price of pro
du.; mun oho eui doubt, Kightr
cent Itton on tho farm to-day i
not s ?vT;:ti (irido as 5 otd'tt?iiii.pi)
in 1 . 'Vi it cost ol' mules, tab M !
an pplies is almost ud?blc th-'
pin iii 1 Si)t>. I think this crop cali !
lu- ! itu hotter; pKco, it nil Isug-,
iia? \ its plan: i Get each laitnor io
st vu .' ni a good warehouse ono
foti I th of his crop.
Lot us suppose this crop will
ma:. 1 i,000,000halos If ono four
fcli ol' il should he 3,000,000 hides,
leaving only 10,500,000 hales avail
able tor spinners. There can ho
tittle doubt that if tho cotton spin
ners know that the crop available
was only 10,500,000 bales that it
would bring almost as much money
as the whole crop. As to retiring
the a,500,000 bales, I suggest that
each State form a cotton holding
company with paid ollicors ol'
known business ability to manage
the business. Let a strong bank !
be i n eted as trustee and have all
warehouse receipts held in trust
for the. cotton company (?et each
farmer \vh > stored his colton lo

Carolina would have lo put in store
300,000 bales this year until Aug

In., room for about 100,000 hales
in this Slate.
Ii ?iitythiligcan he done it should
be done quickly.
My plan provid s Mia!. I he farm
ors, themselves, put one-fourth ol'
theil- crops in stme for the iiiini
tlHlin price. If wealthy men ol' the
North should store the. cotton il
would defeat tho purpose. When
each farmer realized that one-four
iii o h". ^ crop muda he carried In
to I'M ii. and I hal thc surplus added
to another big oroy would put tho
lill2 crop down to c. cents per
pound he would have a powerful
incentivo lo (ail, his acreage ami
fertilizers. No plan will help sell
tho balance ol' this crop that does
not provide a small acreage and less
The Farmers Union made almost
a fatal mistake when they claimed
this a small crop and put minimum
price, at 15 cents. The cotton world
inf be blulied by false statements
bo sold lo

?wiinninmiimi u hi un
as to tho size ot the crop and a
throat to hold.
lt is up to the South to provide
warehouse room to curry fully ono
fourth of tlie largest crops likely
io be made. Tueso warehouses
should be located at railroad cent
res and should haue large capacity.
Perhaps 20,000 bales is the mini
mum warehouse will ever pay. lt
would bo betterfor ono warehouse
company to own and manage tho
few warehouses needed for each
State. This would give captital
slock of sufficient size behind each
warehouse receipt to bo negotiated
in any money eentro in tho United
I suggest that Fair Week, in Col
umbia, be made thc occasion to
orgauize South Carolina farmers
for butter price for 1912. I would
like to soi the organization elect
;. opie out of politics as odlcers. To

1 i conclusion, I still Lave faith
We cali organize cotton 'armers if j
we wdl only ?limin?t ' Fie visionary ,
and impractical plans of men who
have not succeeded with their own!
allai rs, but trust to lead conserva
tive, practical men who have madel
fortunes by the management of
