NtJMIC H ANDLING.
.(Delivered June 1, 1921, at the
American Cotton Conference, New
York City. by Hon. J. C. Rivers,
Warehouse Commissioner, South
Carolina.)
Mr Churmnan and Members of the
Conference:
In attempting to address my re
marks to an audience composed as
it is at present of those who are in
terested vitally in the welfare of the
country generally, and espcially at
this time are directly interested ir
the subject of one of the nation's
greatest production, that is, cotton.
I am not unmindful of the fact
that I am addressing hin audience
composed of students or those who
hav maen a study. df the nooks which
pertain to this great subject,. First,
I wish to say to you, that we can
not consider the subject, which I
wish to approach without our minds
running back to the farm or plan
tation upon which the production
about which I wish to speak to you,
come from. Therefore, we find the
beginning of this production as one
of the nation's sources of elemen
tary wealth, which is produced by
the Southern farmer by hard aInd
toilsome labor, and by the expen
diture of his means and energy, so
that the resultant production be
comes a part of his second nature.
There, fe see it picked and harvest
ed from his fields, after a time of
endless toil and labor, then ginned
and baled and placed in marketable
shape and condition. Several months
have elapsed since the seeds were
placed in the ground and the tiny
weaklings of plants begin to spring
up from the soil, to the time when
the product from it comes into his
hands ready to go to market. This
length of time hos been one to him
of toil and thought, because, should
he relax his vigilance, the crop is a
failure, and the amount of his re
ward in the cott-)n he produces, de
pends upon the amount of intelli
gence and forethought he has ex
tended in ts care and cultivation;
not only that, but the amount of the
value of his products depends to a
great extent upon how energetic in
getting from the fields kis crops,
when it is ready for harvesting; and
how much intelligence he displays in
the proper handling of same after it
is harvested.
That leads to my subject: when
the cotton which he so energetically
and intelligently has prepared for
market by not allowing it to remain
in the field after it has opened its
fleecy locks to nature's sunshiae and
rain, to the time when it would b,
injured thereby, and is ready for
market, and to go into the channels
of commerce, he finds that already
his neighbor's and near neighbors en
gaged in like calling are ready with
theirs, and that along mith him, they
are placing a 12 months' and some
times more, consumption of material
for the market to ba taken care of by
somebody within n period of two er
three months. Consequently, his
counts, his family needs attention,
which requires money which he ex
pects to obtain from his year's work.
To sell ;s to sacrifice and if he cir
ries his production or crop home, he
has no place to put it away from the
exricsure of the elements or deter
iorntionI end no place to store in
wha he can convert it into collat
era t' :eet his immediate ne-ds.
Thi: is wi1.re warehousinr comes in~
and I -.:ish; to say that theoryr and
the opinion of those wvho are not fa
miliar with the actual conditions
that prevail are very much at va
riance with the ac 1 facts. -
It seems that all the talk of ware
housing cotton emanates from the
dealer's viewpoint. That is, all the
cotton grown is assembled at- a few
concentration noints. immedliatelv af
ter it is taken fr-m the fiem' S"ob
is not the case, nor can it be. be
cause of the great volume of the
crop, and the extrem. 1 short period
of picking and ginnia', which ren
ders that an impossibility in so short
a space of time. It can not be so
assembled arnd concentrated in
so large amount, in time to prevent
damage by loss and exposure to cli
matic conditions, therefore, we have
the charge of 75 millions of dollars
to the crop as a result of weather
waste by country damage, and which
to my mind, is very well founded. In
order to prevent this encrmous waste
and loss, from conditions which can
not be~ prevented, the farm or com
munity warehouse must be stressed
and its imro"svce brought to ti'
front in any scheme that can be
devised to prevent such a loss. As
I have said b'efore, the cotton- which
the farmer produces, on account of
the enormous amount of toil and ex
pense he has incurred in its proiuc
tion, is a part of his being, and,
therefore, he refuses to part with
the physical control of his identical
hales until such time as he converts
the same into actual cash. And be
fore he will ship it away from his
community to be placed in the melt
inqr pot for storage, he will either
sell the same on an overloaded and
lutted market, and thereby add to
the bad conditions and firther de
nress the nrice, even if his cotton
is not distress entton as we call it
in the South, or he will car- '
to his farm and allow it to lav
around his premises unprotected
from weather and fire. In my state,
we are stressing the importance of
the,-arm. orcmmunity warehouse
to take care of such cotton, wher
the grower, under his own directior
can store his cotton unti such tim
as the market conditions will justif
the selling of his product and wher
he can have it properly graded an,
weighed before it is stored. Un
(der such conditions, the product doe
not deterioate, the bales, althougi
having probably been stored for si:
or eight months, have been found t
be in good shape, the fibre has no
deteriorated, but has rather improv
ed, and it can, from there be taker
to the mills for manufacturing, o1
to the centralizing points for com
pressing and be there prepared foi
exporting to foreign countries. Thi
farm or community warehouse, gen
tlemen, is to my mind, the solutioi
of the problem of country damage
Let's quit talking so much about th<
large, well-equipped, sprinkled, stor
age houses for cotton. Those wh4
deal in cotton. after it leaves th
farmer's control, will look after that
but rather, to my mind, is the prob
lem of caring for the cron before i
goes on the market. The perfee
tion of the warehouse receipt. foi
cotton stored in the name of th
producer, by systems of checking
grading, proper authointy in issuirn
so that the grower can realize or
the cotton to some extent, for hih
needs upon the crop he has pro1duced
This will/be an incentive to him tc
care for the products and preserve
it from the fearful toll he is no,
aying by reason of the cotton noi
being stored on the farm or in thr
community in which it is grown, an(
which we never can expect to be
stored if we depend on the growei
taking it great distances away frorr
his farm, losing the identity of hi
product and all the control and say.

- press people as a general proposi
3 tion have plenty of warehouse space,
but the farmer and grower of cotton
situated as he is, and must of ne
cessity be, away from large reserve
sunplies of water, and not fitted with
elaborate fire apparatus at his place
i of business, must depend upon tak
ing care of his products which is
- gathered, if gathered in time to
save loss or damage in the fields, and
in a space of six or eight weeks, on
the farm on which it was grown or
in its imrndiate community. Other
wise loss from country damage will
be the inevitable result, because it
is a physical impossibility to get
enough of it sold or otherwise col
lected together to prevent a great
percentage of it from damaging in
th hands of the grower, within the
; time it will take the market to ab
- sorb it and the consumers of the
world to use it. We have, there
fore, figured in our minds , when
sneaking or thinking of cotton, and
the loss resulting to it from country
damage, as if it were an all the year
crop, when the facts are, that cotton
is harvested, if taken at its best, in
a very short space of time, and then
is either sold within the time by the
nroducer, thus overloading the mar
ket with excessive offerings and with
deflated values, br else must be
shipped away from the community to
be thrown into the melting pot of
large storage systems and in most
cases the identity of the actual bales
are lost--costing freight, drayage
