STATEMENT FROM ?MR.
S. B. NICHOLSON.
To the Farmers of Edgefield
We are.facing bankruptcy but the
farmers do not seem to realize that
we are at the mercy of "organized
business apd all the parasites in the
world. It seems as if we are going to
have our cotton taken from us for
($.25), our seed at ($.45) per bu.
and the ginner of cotton to get two
thirds of what, the seed bring to put
our cotton in ragged shape for the
speculator to make his millions.
We felt that the pricelast year
was too large for ginning but did not
make a noise about it as we were
get-ting ($1.00) and better for seed,
but, since the ginners associaton
have seen fit to add another dollar
with the price as it is now on cotton
and seed, it is time forHhe farmers
to get busy. We should not sit still
and allow every little tom-tit to
dictate to us. We all know that the
tenant for share or rent has to have
what is left from the seed, after pay-..
inng ginning expenses to live on.
Take this away from him and the
land owner will have to give him
part of the cotton that should be ap
plie to his debts.
Now, we Farmers, the situation is
serious. Every one is against us. We
must fight or our rights and liberties
will be taken from us. I am with you.
Let us hear from others interested.
