THE CURRENT CROP.
Business Agent Eubanks, of
the National Cotton Handling
Commission, created at the last
annual convention of the Farm
ers' Union, reports that the re
cent session of the executive
committee of the commission at
Memphis achieved definite prog
Yess in plans looking to the mar
keting of the incoming crop of
cotton.
The handling commission has
established headquarters in
Memphis and is rapidly concen
trating the details involved in
the widespreading plans sanc
tioned at Fort Worth.
"The agent of the Parmers'
Union at Manchester, England,
Maurice Grevile," said Mr. Eu
banks, "reports to us that his
negotiations with the English
spinners are proceeding with
gratifying success. He has been
actively at work for several
weeks, ad he finds the senti
nient in England for direct deal
ing with the cotton producers of
the South is growing rapidly.
"Many of the largest spin
ners in Great Britain and on the
continent have expressed their
willingness to co-operate with
the Farmers' Union in direct
sales of cotton, thus eliminating
the imi(dlenan.
"It must be understood, how
ever, that an undertaking of so
vast a nature cannot be brought
to a culniination without long
and painstaking labor. Innum
erable factors enter into the
consideration of the whole prop
osition, new problems arise
every day, (and we can best at
tain p)ermianent success by
'mkinu haste slowly.' "'
ASKED~h TO HOLD COTTON.
"In this connection,'' Mr. Eu
b:mks continued, "'members of
the Farmers' Union should bear
in mind their obligation to co
operate in this work by strain
ing every effort to, hold their
cotton until we have matured
plans for handling the crop, ac
cording to the camp)aign out
lined at Fort Worth. A meet
ing of the entire commission,
consisting of a member from
each cotton state, has been call
ed for Memphis on the first
Monday in October, and it is
expected that steps of the ut
most importance In the hand
ling of the crop will then be de
cided upon.'

FALSE REPORTS.
Mr. Eubanks spoke wlth
much emphasis regarding the
rep~orts now being circulate(
abroad that the South wouli
this season produce a yleld o1
~14,000,000 bales.
"Students and observers i
the cotton-belt, as well a~s comn
pietenit authorities in this coun
try," said Mr. Eubanks, "knov
full well the falsity of these re
.ports. As --far as America ii
concerned, the delus'on that~the
Crop woutd mount to 14,000,001
has long ago been dissipated.
"Ytin spite of these estabI
lished facts~ reporth to the coni

investigations have satisfi
many of the spinners that t
yield this season will be radio

"Others, however, are mis

rumors regarding a bumu
crop. As a consequence in mai
instances both, spinners a
cloth-buyers are slow in maki1

INVESTIGATION.'
"As fast. however, as t
agents of the spinners mal
their own investigations, th
are able to assure their emplo
ers as to the true status in ti
