FAIRFIELD FARMERS ENDORSE. a
Action of Southern Cotton Associa- r
tion In Fixing 11 Cents as Minimum t
Price for Citton. Steps Taken for t
The meeting of the farmers
tilled for Monday was well at
tended. Court was adjourned at
12 o'clock, so that the farmers
could hold their meeting in the
court house. At first it looked I e
like the meeting was going to be
one of the farces held of late, but
soon the farmers began coming
in and before the hour for ad
journment came, there was a
good attendance of farmers in the
court house and they had that
business air about them that L
-signified that they meant more
than mere talk.
Immediately after the meeting
was called to ordoc by the presid
'ent, Mr. S. C. Catheart, the follow
ing resolution was introduced:
Resolved, That it is the
sense of the Fairfield Cotton g
Association thtt the action of the I
Southern Cotton Association in
fixing the minimum price for cot
ton at 11 cents be endorsed and
that th e farmers of the county
should hold their cotton for that
A number present made some b
very appropriate remarks on the
same and after a full discussion h
the resolution was passed with
out a dissenting vote.
A fter this matter was disposed J.
' of, the practical problem of tak-I C
ing the necessary steps for the
building of a system of ware
houses in the county was taken I ti
up and was discussed in a most I di
businesslike way. Mr. McDonald'
introduced a resolution that a g
committee of five be appointed
for ,the purpose of getting out a
charter for the Fairfield County
Warehouse Company with a capi
tal of $25,000, in shares of $10.00
each. The following committee
was appointed: J. E. McDonald, r
D. L. Stevenson, J. P. Caldwell, rE
T. W. Ruff, S. C. Cathcart. With
such a committee as this it is1
very ivident that something will
be done.at once.. The seuimentJag
of the whoqle house was most'
decidedly in favor of the move
ment. While it is recogniz -d
that the resett warehouse fatcil
ities in the county are all right as
far as they go, there is by no ci
sneans enough, and this commit
tee will go to work in earnest for
pNpplying this warehouse neea.
Che following committee was tr
appointed for the purpose of
arousg1)an& interest aimong the
farmers of their respective sec
tions in behalf of furthering the
interests of the Cotton Associa
tion and to acertain what assis- hi
tance will be rendered in the de
organization of the proposed W
warehouse company. 3, II. Cur- Itr
