At a Convention of tho Ameiicnu
Society of Equity of Johnson County,
Arkansas, it was stated that eeverut
cotton gins that had.not ginned a bale
of cotton in from four to nineteen
years were included in the pinner's
report to the Qovernment. One gin
in the county that has not ginned a
bale in nineteen years wns reported
250 bales. It in claimed that at least
seventy defunct gins were included iu
What about planting that extra cot
ton land in cow peaaf This crop of
peas will make about as good returns
per acre as any crop when we consider
the real cost; and it is the only summer
crop.we usually plant that actually
gives a good paying crop, and leaves
the land improved and well fertilized
for either- cotton or small grain for
next year's crop. If this plan of rotat
ing cotton with cow peas and small
grain is practiced with as much skill
and determination as the all-cotton
man practices iu growing cotton, he
will be independent of either the Fer
tilizer Trust; or the State's Fertilizer
Factury. ' It has been proved time and
again by numbers of experiments that
t?s recta orpeavineB lafv in the soil
pays for all coat in growing the
crop, and yon have all the crop of hay
or grain as your profit,, that you can
turu into cash or stock feed without
calling a convention of farmers to help
Jou get a profitable price for either
ay or peas.

Wonder it everybody believes that
cotton is King ia South Cnrhlinaf and
that every business or occupation in
the State is effected either profitably
or unprofitably with profitable or un
profitable prices for cotton? All the
speakers at the recent Cotton Conven
tions, whether they were Bankers,
merchants,manufacturers or other busi
ness men, said so at these conventions,
tnd the whole mass , cheered this state
ment. Now, if cotton-growing is the
chief industry or occupation of South
Carolina, and every business interest
in the State is dependent npon profit
able prices for this great wealth-pro
ducing crop, that is the basis of all our
prosperity! Where ia the injustice of
the State protecting its cotton - growing
interest by manufacturing itB own
fmosphate rocks with its own convict
aborT Could we not drive out obnox
ious fertilizer combinations by State
competition in less time and if lets
expense than by I a win g thorn? Would
we not at the same time foster the
chief interest of the State while we
throttle the unrighteous combinations
that are daily increasing their wealth
and power at the expense of the wealth
and power of the whole State';
We are entering upon one of the
South'a greatest questions?Organiza
tion. We have learned that men of
all callings must depend on each other.
Unless the farmers stand together our
calling will be in vain- and asolieop
scattered, the . shepherd cannot pro
tect them from the "bears."
Will the intelligent farmer of today
place himself in the. position of the
brute, on account of the future jour
ney It becomea necessary for the ox to
drink, he is driven to the water but
will not drink. We. are driven to the
organizing point .Shall we stand and
look on unconcerned, or will we fall in
line, form a farmers' trust, if neces
sary, and by bo doing will be able to
compote with any other occupation
and to hold our own with the specula
The unnatural drop in the price of
cotton .threatens the farmer, of the
South with a loss beyond their ability
to endure. To avoid the loss many
have refused to market the remainder
of their crop. At Once the banks de
clined to lend aa much money as wa*.
desired. Merchants found ? heavy
falling off in their trade. Mill men
felt the congestion of business; Alt
occupations seemed more or l?sa affeo
tcd. Bear in mind this important les
son in the future, that every man
should sympathize w^th his fellowman,
no matter how different their calling.
It io very plain to bo aeon that if ono
