about 700,000,000. tons consisting of

Largest Ginnery East 61 Texas.
Greenwood, Special.-?The- high wa
ter mark in the ginning record of the
Greenwood oil mills ginnery was
j reached here Friday when there were
ginued aud packed 16S bales of cotton
in oue day. The ginnery "here since
the burning of the ginnery of the
People's oil mill at Anderson is the
largest east of the Mississippi river.
! The Anderson, ginnery was exactly
the same size. Since it was burned
the one here has no rival outside of
Texas in size. The 16 gins turn out
cotton in a jiffy. Capt. F. S. Evans
manager for this district of the
Southern Cotton Oil company says he
believes this ginnery will gin close
around 7,000 bales of Cotton this yea'**
Last year the total crop of this coun
ty was a little over 27,000 bales. This
was a short crop but if this ginnery
gets 7,000 this year it will be about
one fourth of ?he entire crop of the
country. Nearly 3,000 bales have
been ginned to date.
Revenue Districts Are to be Merged.
Columbia, Special.-As announced
in a special from Washington some
time ago, the "revenue district of Geoi
will go iuto effect iu January and
which will cut down the revenues of
that State from- about $600,000 to
$35,000 approximately. The action
of the revenue authorities is impor
tant in that it probably means the
employment of additional clerical
force in Columbia and the fact that
the national banks in this city will
receive deposits hei*etpfore going to
the national banks of "Georgia.

DECLARE FOR 15 CENTS
Promises of Several Banking Honscj
to Advance Loans en Cotton ia
Orangeburg, Special.-The fanners
of this, the greatest cotton producing
county in South Carolina, took steps
toward holding their cotton for a min*
imum price of 15 cents per pound.
This is the minimum agreed upon at
the last meeting of the executive com
mittee of the Southern Cotton associa
tion. The South Carolina members ui
the committee are said not to have
favored this minimitm, but after the
committee as a whole had acted the
leaders of the cotton farmers in this
State have sounded the call and have
begged the farmers to hold their cot
The meeting here was caled to put
the matter squarely before the peo*
pie of Orangeburg county. This
county has sold quite a lot of cotton
already, but it is declared freely that
about 40,000 of 50,000 bales will be
held, for that which has been sold
is said to have come from the crops
of negro farmers, who could not hold
There were interesting speeches,
some* earnest and convincing argu
ments. The principal addresses of
the day were delivered by ex-Gov. D.
C. Heyward who was invited because
be is the president of the Standard
Warebouso company, which has ware
houses in severcal parts of the State,
and Mr. E. D. Smith, field agent of lk?
Southern Cotton Association. A short
but interesting speech was made by
Dr. W. W. Ray, who attended the ex
ecutive committee meeting, and an
other by Mr. F. H. Weston, secretary
of the South Carolina Cotton "Grow
ers association. \%
The meeting was fairly well attend
ed although it was" Saturday ah\l
there were several thousand people
.n the streets and thc merchants could
not well leave their stores. Mr. Johu
E. Wannamaker of St. Matthews, who
called the meeting and is president of
the Orangeburg county association,
made a few very earnest introductory
remarks: Mr. Wannamaker stated
among other things that he had had
a good natured controversy recently
with the editor of a great daily news
paper as to the advisability of holding
for 15 cents and he wished to com
mend to the farmers the spirit in
which his communications had been
But he declared the fact that the
pres of the South is not afire with
enthusiasm in the fight to push the
price o?ftbe staple to 15 cents, for
the press is the mightiest force in thc
country and if all of the papers
should become enlisted rin the cause
and should make an uncompromising
fight for 15 cents, it would not be
long until the people would be educat
ed to realize the value of their staple
and the crop would be held back un
til the farmers would get their 15

year; Louisiana and Mississippi re
ported short crops, and nearly all of
the other States reported that crops
would fall below the production of
last year. South Carolina alone re
ported a good croo or about an aver
age crop. v
In view of the reports received, it
was estimated that the crop this year
would be 11,750.000 bales. Therefore
the committee very deliberately con
cluded that the value of the cron
would best be obtained by holding out
for 15 cents per pound. "We appeal
to the bankers and business men to
help us win this fight," said Pr. Ray.
"We are dependent upon them as
well as they are dependent upon us.
The future of the South is entirely
dependent upon the income from the
sale of colton, and as the scarcity of
labor has laised the price of produc
tion and as the price of all commodi
ties has increased, the farmers feel
that they have a right to demand
more for their cotton and they be

Following Dr. Ray. ex-Gov. Hey
ward was introduced. Gov. Heyward 's
admirable address is printed in full at
the request of officers of the associa
tion. Gov. Heyward did not go the
full length and advise that the farm
ers hold for 15 cents, for he is in the
warehouse business and 'should far
mers, acting on his advice, put their
cotton in the warehouse to be held
for 15 cents-and then not get that
price-he would feel that he had in
jured them. But the address showed
so much thought upon the general
question and was such good reading
matter in a general way to. show the
value of cotton as a staple and as a
monopoly that the association will
have it published in other States.
Gov. HcywQrd in the outset assured
Chairman J-. E. Wannamaker that the
banking institutions and the press
would support the cotton producers
in their fight to control thc price of
their own monopoly. Later on, just
as he was concluding his address, he
received a telegram from the National
Loan and Exchange bank in which
they'agreed to carry their customers
who-will warehouse their cotton for a
rise in price.
Other speeches were made and a
great dea lof valuable, information
was brought out. The meeting was a

in the executive committee, which,
ander the plan adopted, is to' be the
governing body of the interantional

Thc conference at its session Wed
nesday took action that it is believed
will-soon result in a vast improve
ment in the methods of putting raw
cotton into shape for handling by the
spinners with a consequent saving to
them of fally $25,000,000 a year now

transportation was adopted. It rec
ommends that greater care be exer
cised in preserving, cotton in trans
portation from the effects of the
weather and that every effort be
made to extend the warehouse sys
tem for cotton in America; the ad
option of a label on cotton bales iden
tifying the grower and the warehouse
where stored and showing gross tare
and net weight. Such a system is
conductive tp reduction of country
damage. A bill of lading so drawn as
to establish the continuity of respon

the interior point to the ultimate des
