SALE TO THE AMERICAN
COTTON OIL TRUST
an 1 .1 ma w. . ...
Lxpiuiueu oj air. ifoja sot a
Scoop, but a Legitimate Trade.
Desiring to get at the true inwarJ
ners of the transfer of tbe Planters'
Oilmill to the Ameitcan Cotton Oil
Trust, an Appeal reprrter yesterday
called on air. Alston Boyd, and, a'ter
stating his mieeion, reqa- sted an in
terview, which was readily granted.
The followi. g is an accurate account
of what was said :
Mr. Boyd, the business public
have manifested considerable inter
est in the announcement made ia
today's Appeal that the Planters'
mill had been scooped by the Ameri
can Cotton Oil Company, and if yon
have no objections we would be glad to
know something more definite as to
Well, I am not inclined to parade
my private business affairs in the
public prints, or those of the com
pany I lepreseot, bat there is no occa
sion far any conceeluieiit, and if it ia
a muter ol any interest I have no ob
j ctiona to Biying that the Planters'
mill is now, and, indeed, has been for
soma title, one of the plants in the
American Cotion Oil Tros:.
Will you Rive me tbe particulars
of the saie?
This being wholly a mpttor of pri
vate ktrr.s , and one afllecting ail
the sha eholJeis whom I lepre
ssnt, I latdly Jeel at liberty lo do
this; but I may tay that the trausic
tion Wrscnegoverneloiily by ordinary
buuiness priucip'e?, and ihile your re
porter bas called it a "scoop," it was
nothing more than a tiansfer cf prop
erty on ttrms entirely eatiefactory to
all paitles concerned.
But was mt your mill tj bo in
fact as in Darr.e a "plantation mill,"
and opera ed in the interest of seed
sellers as opposed to oilmill combina
tions? There may have been some fuch
idea ai tt.is, and tbe theory is a
good one; bat my experience in
this direction fcaj proven very clearly
that practically it cannot ba carried
out in the management of a manu
facturing and businets enterprise.
Is not the cottrn sted oil business
one of ia-ge piofit?
The best answer to this is a sim
ple reference to the quotations for
local stocks in your own commer
cial toiumcs, where you will find all
oilmill stocks much bo-low par, and in
fact come of them almost without
value, as It further shown by the fact
that for some time past no bank in
Memphis has been willing to accept
any oilmill stock as cjlla'eral. The
very able review of tbe yeat's business
in Memphis in your first of September
i-eue, too, gives tbe facts and figures
in th s matter, and shows that while
tbe largest manufacturing interest of
the city, it baa been carried on lor
several eara at an actual b st to many
mills atd with only sma l prefits to a
lew, and tnese tejurea only Dy rigid
econcmy in macag ment or local ad
vantages of situation.
What was tbe origin of this trust,
as you call it, Mr. .Boyd ?
The American Cotton Oil Tru-t
is limply the natural outgrowth
and business lite temit of a ruin
ous competition and over produc
tion In the cottoa teed interes' an
etTort to control the one and check the
o her. The cotton seed oil business
Home ten years ago, when there were
less than a dozm mills in th" rountry,
was ore if large profits. When the
indus rial revival came in tbe South
i his" fait wes teken advantage of by
the manufacturers of oilmill machin
ery, to induce tbe building of new
mills everywhere, until scarcely a rail
road eroisicg in the South is without
its oilmill. Many of them, in fact
the majority of them, in the hands of
stoci companies under lnelitcient
management. The result of this bus
been that a ruinous competid n bas
arifen in the purchase ol a ed, while
on the other band the product mar-
kit i nave baen overcrowded and
rric s forced down to a point far below
tbe cost to manufacture. This, of
c uree, brcugbt loasts every year to
tbe mills, until, with bankruptcy s'ar
ing them in tbe face, some heroic rem
edy was demanded to prevent the ol-
tirs wreck (1 tne millions of dollars
invested in this property all over the
South. Tois remedy, I thick, has
been fonnd in tbe co operation of
many mills under the better manage
ment and with ihe improved facilities
in manufacture and disposal of pro
ducts whith is comprehended in tbe
But will not this result in the
creation tf a monopoly that will
bring loss lo tbe plant-ng in erest
of the S .uth by forcing down the
prices pad for se.d?
1 am giaa you mention inis, De-
cause while I know this is tbe popu
lar idea, I am fully satisfied that co
such rtsuHs will follow. Indeed. I
speak "by ths book" in saying that no
one mote than the management of the
trust appreciates that such a policy
would be simply suicide. On the con
trary, I see in this nothing like lh)
danter which has threatened the
planting interest in the tetd buying
p-o's which have always prevailed.
For there have bad all tbe evi s of
monopolies in ihtir power to fix the
price of seed, with none of the advan
tages wnich co-operation in the die
p j. al of products would secure. In
deed, even in times "seedware," when
prices have been highest, seed dea'eis
and seed agents have been the parties
benefited, and not tne plnnters arid
produ'inrp, who generally have re
ceived about the tame price as wht n
the competition was less thai p.
In facr, the broad business p inc plea
which must govern an en'eipr st cf
t;iis magnituda is au ascurauce that
the tru-t mttrt lcok f r i's pr. fits to
the advantages which it has of t-mple
capital, improved machinery, sd
vai;ce 1 management end a laret-r fi id
for the dinpo'8' of products in hitherto
unoiet.ed marknts which could not
be reached by it dividual enterprice.
And tt rough thts.-i advautugeB, and
from tbe faot that in the immense
volume of the business done they can
accept a smaller pro ra'a of profit, I
am aasur d ihat they will be able to
maintain a bet'er prce fr.r teed than
any s eglo milt tau afford to pay. And
this principle will, I believe, underlie
their t'ansact'ons with the people,
wto, I think, when the catural prrju
d ce egaiust monopolies is set asiue,
wi'l soon learn to so concede it.
Thi n jou think, Mr. Bojd, that the
price of seed will be a fair one?
I de, as compared always with the
value of the manufactured, product,
leaving enly a fair return for tbe
labor, capiial and risk employed.
And in this connection lttt me ray
that yonr article of this rrornii g i in
correct in pu'ting tbe price at i5 per
ton. Oil' mil is now and has b?en,
ever met it has been under the
control of the trust.piy ing 19 instead of
5 per ton.and ibis prire we will be only
too glad o advance whenever ths pro
duct markets will give u any astor-
ance that we can safely do so. Ibeliev
I too, if you will allow me to say so,
that you newspaper men will be
doing an injury to (southern enterprise
ana to a ocsiness DPionging peculiarly
to the South in teaching anything to
the contrary, for it is a matter, after
all, that the ordinaiy principles of
traae alone win govern, and the ex

At 10 o clock the signal for tbe ban

even a drummer, tt'oaistomed to live
on the fnt ol tne hnd, could have de

He said that be took a deep interest
in Memphis and intended to live and

all he could to advance her in

Memphis had realy taught St, Louis
to do in 1878 and 1879, when her mer

wanted the organization to grow until
it ga'hered in every drummr and ev

Mr. Henry J. Lynn was called for
and made a brief speech, applauding

TBI X RUMMER.
When your president first told me
that this honor was in store for me I
was overwhelmed and have continued
n that state ever since. Very little i
nown I find from a careful study cf
the different books on this subject.
'rne Herodotus tells of certain wan
dering trade-men who wherever they
went astonished the natives and
brought home the'r shekels. Josephus
ociden'aliy alludes to men in the
mercantile business who were f re
liant y away from home at muht.
Tacitus tells us ol certain Romans who
took 'their " goods and lives in
their hands and went ahead of any
thirg else in their day. True some of
the Kg) ptian mummies are said to re
semble in personal appearance and the
hardness of their cheek the commer
cial tourist of today, but I do not be
lieve any of thesB could have been the
genuine article, as none of these writ
ers say anything about bis always get
ting tne best teat on tbe railroad train
and his never ringing a chestnut, bell.
It is my private bttlief that the drum
mer is of Kngli-h origin and was horn
in the early pait of this century. Cer
tain it is that his mother was Nt cessitv
and his father was .Enterprise, while
the food upon which be has
grown to greatness was Competition.
We moy as well concede, however,
that something cf a cloud surrounds
his birth. While it is known tbat bis
parenti, like Ihose of all other dittin
gU'sbed men, were ponr but honest,
yet we do rot know in what coun ry
his young cheek first took on the
mantling blush, or on what air bis
s rong voice was waited. We only
know that when he fiis' spoke be be
gan telling sacond hand jokes, and ths
first thing he was ever known to do
was to get tbe very best room at tbe
bo'el. Like Homer of old. at least

nier himself, tint lound 1 .ia l. )..

sion he told me wilh fears in bi eves
tunt he was the brazen faced Janus of

to me that he had borne many names
iu many places, and that
he seldom visited the rams
city as the tame representative.
He led me to snppnse that he was the
original John Smith, but his u'ter ig

largest snpp y of any one thing that
lie ever bad on l aud, txo pting sam
ples and j rkee, was ancestry, and that
he o red no mora for thorn than he
did for posterity or accuracy. No citv
of tbe globe could be mentioned hut
what he wasiea ty to tell me what he
called an amusing story in connection
with the place. I finally concluded
tbat Germany vonldn't care if I got
him born all ovsr I ho "Fedarland" at
one and the same time. This couldn't
be done with anybody but a distiu
gu'ahtd character, but many of them
or their biographers doit easily and
don't seem to mind.
Having thus tettled ths question of
his birth, as a faithful historian I
shtuld give you some account of the
early childhood and dawning youth of
his remarkable production of trade.
1 find, however, that the halcyon days
were spent by him in an honest eva
sion of school tasks and the invention
of marvellous, wonderful and authen
tic fairy tales. No record has been
preserved of bis life at Sunday school,
hut it is believed by many that be
learned the ten commandments there,
ashehasben often heard .to say
since that he has firgotten them.
When given the position tf ealosman
In a store he devoted tbe greater part
of bis time to entertaining the cus
tomers rather than tolling them goods.
He acted in this matter like all other
gonlussB who scorn the work they
were not born to difebarge. He knew
that he belonged on tbe road; that in
oisutnt towns the admiring country
merchant was waiting to give him or
ders; that the hotel keepers were dust
ing their best rooms, aud just as soon
as he had read all the almanacs which
he could borrow, teen all the minstrel
troupes and circuses be could get
intc he went. I will tot further fol
low that brilliant career, which will
end only when commercial progress
shall cea e to exist; only when men
shall fail to appreciate energy and
good humor, and when he inoividu
ally passes away may it hs writt-n
over him "Here lios the child of enter
prise, who was in himsalf the delight

Wind instruments are- cecasfary on
such occasions as this, and a careful
selection for that purpose has bion
made in Ihe speakers. I have served
a regular apprenticeship iu this de
partment and appear before you as a
journeyman who has been on a strike
for an advance. We are here by mu
tual consent to participate In Ihe
agreeabliitiea of an evening which
will be impressed on cur phvt-
ical and mental memories. The
liberal dispensation of every
thing which awolls the human
bosom into full ftatern'zlng fellowship
suggests that I remind you of the
motto, United we fall; divided we
etand. Warm hearts kave greeted you
and no cold bands will lis dealt you.
Persmal acquaintance begets personal
knowledge and personal friendship,
and in the matter of trade I can con
ceive of no stronger licks in a mercan
tile bond, nor an investment beating
such interest. These reunions are al
ways profitable in more ways than
one. They learn a man not only how
much he can stand in a commercial
seDse, but teach a lesson of how much
be can stand otherwise. I bave heard
of men standing on feet, and even
standing on bands, but wht n wine
anl hilarity and good fellowship
combine, that is one time above
all others when we want
the earth and want it solid. Memphis
has grown into tnrprislog beauty and
