Cotton Outlook Not Promising
* McSw?in Tells of Visit
Through Southern States
The finest cotton seen on a trii
through parts of Texas, Georgia
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana anc
Couth Carolina was growing betweer
Columbia and Augusta according tc
W. A. McSwain, state insurance com.
missioner, who recently returned tc
Columbia after having been in Texas
several days investigating certain oil
"In Louisiana" said Mr. McSwain
yesterday, "the corn, sugar cane and
rice were in fine condition and weie
growing luxuriantly. The rice was
especially fine, and was being flooded
when we passed through. The water
used in irrigating the rice fields
comes from deep wells. I did not pass
through the cotton growing section
"In Mississippi, the cotton crop, as
I saw it, was as poor as it well could
be. It was not only late, but was
grassy, frequent rains having inter
fered with the working of the crop.
Farmers I talked with said the cotton
was bad in their communities. The
corn crop in this state was fair so far
.as I could judge from the car win
Finds Crops Grassy.
"Conditions in Alabama were sim
ilar to those in Mississippi. We pass
ed through the boll weevil section.
The wet weather which has been prev
aient in that section is said to be con
ducive to the growth of the pest.
"In Texas we passed through the
cotton belt between Dallas and Tex
arkana. The plant was small in this
section and the fields were grassy.
In Arkansas the cotton crop was bet
ter as we approached Memphis."
"About the finest cotton I saw on
the whole trip was that between Co
lumbia and Augusta, and the corn
crop in that section was as good as
any I saw except in Louisiana where
the corn was further advanced than
.. ' in this state."
Talks of Oil Wells.
Mr. McSwain's primary purpose in
visiting Texas was to investigate per
sonally some of the oil wells and oil
properties. Numerous companies in
Texas have applied to him for per
mits to sell stock in these concerns
to South Carolinians, and before
granting the permits Mr. McSwain
wanted some first hand information.
The permit is provided for by the
laws of the'state in order to protect
South Carolina citizens who might
be induced or cajoled into investing
good money in bad securities.
"The wildcat oil business" said Mr.
McSwain, "is the extreme of haz
"Established companies engaged in
handling crude oil have a stable and
"The public should know that oil
wells usually start at their maximum
production, and I was informed that
production now is small in the Beau
mont section of Texas where the oil
business first reached large propor
"A gentleman who had been suc
cessful in the oil business said that
unless a company had a large amount
of resources there was but little pros
pect of success in the oil business. He i
said he was boring at the present
.time wells that were costing $1,000
I daily and that under best conditions
lit would cost from $50,000 to $60
000 to bore one well. If accidents of
any sort hindered or delayed the
work, the cost would be around $100
000 he said. He gave me these figures
to show the necessity for abundant
resources on the part of the company
"People thinking of investing in
oil stocks should remember that Tex
as is a large state, and the fact that
oil is discovered in one section is not
to be taken as conclusive evidence
that it will be found in a section hun
dreds of miles distant from the first.
"My opinion of the oil business1
was not improved by first hand ob
servation and as a result of the visit
to Texas I will investigate more close
ly than ever before the prospectus of
every concern applying for permits :
to sell stock in South Carolina."

Hundreds Honor Confederate
Washington, Jun 6.-Hundreds
joined with Confederate veterans to
day in the annual memorial exercises
in honor of the heroes of the Confed
eracy who are buried in Arlington
national cemetery. The exercises
which were under the auspices ol
Camp No. 171, United Confederate
Veterans, centered about the Con
federate monument, a majestic shaft
reared by the Daughters of the Con
federacy and marking that section
of Arlington cemetery set aside for
the burial of the Confederate dead.
At the base of the monument was
the "Southern Cross," a reproduction
of the stars and bars done in flowers.
This floral, tribute presented by
Camp No. 305, Sons of Confederate
Veterans, was unveiled by Miss
Grace Roper assisted by Miss Marian
?pshur. Flowers were strewn on
each grave, which were m?rked- by
tiny American flags.
"We Southerners," said Represen
tative R. Walton Moore of Virginia,
who made the principal address of
the day, "yield to no one in our loy
alty to the flag and our solicitude
for the integrity and welfare of the
Republic. We offer no apology for
the men and women who were iden
tified with the Confederate cause,
and we shall never forget the remark
able courage and the fortitude, the
unflinching resolution and self sacri
fice that distinguished the civil and
military operations of the Confeder
acy and marked the conduct of the
people who followed the leadership
of Davis and Lee."
Mr. Moore referred to the birth
day of Jefferson Davis, which wan
celebrated a few days ago, and re
viewed the career of Mr. Davis as a
soldier, a cabinet officer, representa
tive and senator. He declared that
Mr. Davis was devoted to the Union,
while his father, a soldier of the
Revolution had helped to establish,
but that he always held to the con
viction that the states had the right
to withdraw from the union without
being coerced to remain.
"While we all now adhere to the
constitution and government as mod
Red by the Confederate war," de
clared the speaker, "no intelligent
md truthful man could think or
speak of Jefferson Davis and his fol
awers as traitors."
