APPEAL FROM HARVIE JORDAN.
Makes Call on Farmers Not to Give an Inch
Until Fight Has Been Won.
Atlanta, Octohor 21.-A considerable
part of tho now crop found its way into
tho markets so long as prices remained
abovo lt) cents, but since tho drop holow
10 cents per pound, nearly three weok's
ago, the producers throughout tho entire
coil M heit have called a halt and wo
now find tho spot situation absolutely
tied up. Tho port receipts have boon
heavy during that timo, but this has
V, J'.-en duo to tho hurrying forward of
shipments that wore purchased >rior to
tho recent depression. Very littlo cot
ton is now hoing olYored for salo any- I
whoro, and what is being sold is cotton
that is largely in the hands of negro
tenants who pay but little attontion to |
tho prico or tho course of the market. !
Merchants, bankers, guano dealers and
others have joined with tho planters in
resisting a markot which nt tho present
timo is too low and which has boon do
piesse-! by manipulation in speculation.
There can bo but one mothod for ad
vancing tho spot mai kel, and that is for
ho producers to stand brm and refuse
to part with their cotton until prices do |
reach satisfactory ligures. Tho Southern
Cotton Association, through its general
executive committee, in session at Asho
villo, N. C., September (1. after a full aud
thorough investigation of tho situation
from ovory standpoint, decided that ll
cents por pound was a reasonable mini
mum prico for this crop.
This prico can bo secured by tho
farmors if thoy will stand firmly for it.
Tho market for tho next two months will
bo regulated according to tho extent of
tho cotton that is rushod upon thc buyors
by tho producors. It is now being urgod
from many sections that tho people who
aro ahlo to do so get together in each
county and raiso funds sufficient to buy
n all tho cotton that is forced to salo
nd stine it for higher prices. This is
