ItoiiiHllap Rales Made Cotton Higher.
Wherever the Amorican Cotton Com
pany's Hound la II presses woro oporntod
last season higher prices provailod for
cotton, whether baled round or square.
In order to get cotton, sqnarohalo buyers
wore obliged to pay moro than tho mar
ket price, and moro than cotton was soil
ing for in neighboring towns whoro tboro
was not a roundlap plant. In some cases
tho premium paid by square box ginnors
in competition with roundlap gins dur
ing the greater part of thu season was as
much as half a cent per pound abovo the
price ruling at other old stylo gins in tho
same county. The inevitable result fol
lowed. Cotton (and t ho owners' trad o
with it) was drawn for long distances to
roundlap points to tho profit of the
entire community, and at too expenso of
towns that did not enjoy tho advantages
of round bale competition.
The elVect of such object lessons has
been a demand for roundlap presses for
next season which will tax tho full
capacity of The American Cotton Com
pany's works running day and night.
