Pickens County Union Column
JOE. MILLER, Committee In Charge.
It seems, Mr. Editor there
are a good number of farmers
who are standing aloof from the
organization known as the
Farmers Union, waiting to see
it succeed, waiting to see it get
the minimum price for their cot
Now let us look at one cause
that has kept the minimum
price from being an accomplished
fact. Suppose the farmers of
this state were thoroughly or
ganized and would fix a day
and every man that had cotton
stored in the mill warehouses in
th's state would all go the same
day and call for their cotton to
be delivered to them (the farm
ers). What would happen?
Would it not cause some of the
mills of this state to pay any
price they could get cotton at so
as to pay back to some of those
farmers who have stored with
them for the last two or three
years? Think about this matter
.and then ask yourself the ques
tion: Who is to blame for cot
ton not reaching the minimum
.before now?
Now I want to say in justice
to Mr. John M. Geer of the Eas
ley cotton mill, that he has a
ware house in which cotton is
stored and not used until paid
for. But it is the only one that
I know of in the state; there
may he others, but I don't know
of them.
Now if we furnish them the
cotton to run on, where is there
anything to cause the price to
go up! I know there are many
who have not done this, but
how many have done it. Now,
when you think this matter
over, whether you are a union
man or not, you will readily see
one of the causes why the min
imnum has not been reached. I
know of some who have sold
then' cotton at a stated price
with the understanding that
they were to get the rise for two
or three months. It seems by
this act of theirs they have con
fidence in something to cause
the price to go up, but have
made a trade and performed a
deed to keep the price down.
Suppose that ever~y farmer do
this: Put our cotton in the
mnanufacturers' hand for a cer
~tain price and if the price in a
month or so we will get it.
Don't you see the trick? Noth
ing to cause the rise until the
*time limit is out, then they can
run it to where they please and
we are none the better off.
Bro. Farmer, we need more
knowledge to succeed In our
*.msiness; the Farmers Union
.has extended its hand to us as
an educator to help us to go to
gether as a common brother
,hood. JOIL H. MILLER.
