REPEAL OF THE LIEN LAW$
The legislature has repealed the
lien law. Whether this is wise
or not, it remains to be seen.
The effect of it will be the plant
ing of less cotton, leading per
haps to a greater diversification
of crops, and the benefiting of
the large planters by forcing the
tenant class to become hirelings.
On the one hand, the acreage of
cotton being reduced, its price
will lincrease, thus benefiting
principally those who can con
duct their planting operations on
a cash basis or its equivalent;
and, on the other hand, it will
free the small farmer from the
necessity of having to plant cot
ton almost exclusivelio in order
to meet his indebtdness to the
merchant, and at. he same time
compell him t9raise his own
home suppligb, which in the
long run W1l be a good thing
for l s its putting hinr on a
basis. But for those who
t land, whites and blacks,
repeal of the law is going to
k a hardship. They will be
orced to work for the land
owners or else leave the state.
Unable to give a lien that is
valid in law, the only basis up
on which they con Id heretofore
obtlin cr"?. ib will be left
without kleaawith which
tq rim a farm. :Tie&ore, they
will bo compele4Freturn to
aelanid datsy laborers or as
inants farmers for -the rich
mdlords. This of course, will
a good thing for the la~4
ers, but we are not ntg
' to prov ners, They
-will-no longerie independent d
No doubt the repeal of the lien
law will solve in large measure
the question of labor in the
country. There will be plenty
of it, for renters will become la
borers, and large planters, un
like it has been, will be able to
get all they want. Possibly this
was the main reason for the re
peal of the law, and, if so, it
savors of class legislation.
It must not be supposed from
Th' above that we favor the lien
law. We have simply pointed
out the advantages of its repeal
to one class and its disadvant
ages to another class. If there
had never been a lien law the
state would be in much worse
condition today than it is, and
the people would be more pros
perous. But inasmuch as such
a law was enacted, believed to
be necessary at the time, and
has been in force for over a
quarter of a century, its repeal
now without any sort of ease
ment, is going to work a great
hardship on some, while it will
be of immense help to others.
Its repeal should have been
gradual, or in such way as
would not have brought distress
all at once upon so many. We
believe it ought to have been re
pealed, but not just in the way
it was done.-Columbia Record.

Letter to cotol ir0wers
To the Cotton Growers:
A year ago I strongly urged
you to reduce the acreage in
cotton and grow more feed
stuff. It seems from the acre
age and in some sections a small
increase was shown. The re
sult has been about as I predict
ed, the lowest prices we have
had for several years. It now'
looks as if the crop will bring
around $550,000,000, or ovei
$50,000,000 less than last year's
crop, which was nearly 2,000,
000 bales smaller and taking thE
cost of growing the extra 2,000,
000 bales it means a loss to thE
South of over $100,000,000.
The time has arrived when
you must decide on the acreagE
for this season. I strongly urge
you to reduce your acreage in
cotton at least 10 per cent, an(
raise more grain and hay, sc
you will be more independeni
at marketing time. When the
spinner is assured there i4
enough cotton grown to supply
his needs he is very independeni
and will only buy at cheaf
prices. With a possiblity of c
shortage he is a very eager buy
While the consumption foi
the first half of the cotton yeai
ending March 1 will likely be f
little less than half the crop.
the consumption the last hall
will be very much larger, so tha1
we will likely have about the
same visible supply that we hat
last season, so that we shouk
raise next year at least 1,000,
000 bales less than the consump
ilon in order to get good price,
Now 'don't think that ever)
one else will reduce and you car
plant more and get a big price
for that is what too many oi
you did last season. It wil
take a uniform reduction in or
der to get the proper results
You should only plani
enough so that with the mos1
favorable conditions the croj
would not exceed 12,500,000 ani
then if wete
. -u get more money for it tha
if you raised 12,500,000.
I hope every merchant readin
this article will call his farm(
customers' attention to it an
urg the reduction. It is the e>
tra hundred million dollars t~h
cotton crop brings that make
trade good through the Sout}
I suggest that meetings be hel
in every school house on Marc]
7, so that uniformity of actio:
may be taken.
