Three Best ia Five In Favor of the Cotton
We doff our hat to the cotton grow
ers. Immediately after the drop in
the price of cotton last fall Theo.
Price and many other cotton bears
said they would have the remainder
of thia crop for 5 cents, and the farmer
said he wanted 10 cents or OJ couta at
his home market. Who wont The glow
er has averaged a little over 9 out of
the 5 cents at stake between thc grow
er and the speculator. This placea the
farmer on record aa winning the game
against tremendous odds.
The fanners7 organisations are in
their infancy. They ere hardly re
coned as being anything like thorough
ly organised, whilo the cotton bean
nave been at it and thoroughly. organ-,
ized for many years. The farmer is
new at thia game: He baa bat little
training, bat he has shown nu im
mense amount of platte, grit and good
sense in tola the first tussle of the cam
paign for fairness.
While the cotton bears have all the
advantage of years of experience nod
training tho cotton grower bas posses
sion of tho coveted product and possess
eight-tenths of the soil that is recog
nized fra tho natural homo of the cot
Beside these natural advantages the
cotton grower has it in his power to re*,
.dace the acreage and absolutely con
trol tho situation of things and choose
his own battl? field ana position for
The cotton grower has all the natural
advantage, while the cotton bears
have ready cash and a large stock of
strategy on his side for the coming
campaign over our next cotton crop;
the farmers have about five month?
from nov? until the next crop comes
in to complete their organizations and
train their forces in business matters.
Tho cotton grower has ten times the
amount of capital in bis business that
the cotton speculator has, and if the
cotton grower will concentrate a very
small amount of this capital in bonded
warebousea he will fortify bia position
and be able tcTtake care nt the weaksr
growers as well as others, in order to
control prices the stronger and better
fortified cotton growers mast provide
protection for their less fortunate
neighbors. The better class of grow
ers must take care of the cotton of
the weaker growers in order to protect
his own cotton'interest.
Eating Yow Pie and Still Have lt.
This thing of eating pie and still
having it is ono of themcoted questions,
bot hy tho South Car*nina lien law
systern we know many cotton grow
ers who eat their plo before that pie
The warehouse system enables thia
same cia sss of cotton growers-as well
as other classes-to . obtain largo ad
vancements on their cotton and still
hold control of the sale of that cotton
until be can realize a profitable price
for it, when without this privilege tho
farmer is forced to take what ia otter
ed when the cotton is ready for sale
whether current prices are profitable
or ruinous. If this warehouse systoru
does pot the grower who owns a small
minority- of interest in the cotton in
control of property, the major part of
which he does not own, there is as
much fairness in this as there is in giv
ing the tenant the right under the
lien law system to control the pro
ducts of lands that he does not own.
Cotton is a world-wide necessity on
the market, and consequently the nest
collateral in the whole vorld of ma
terial things? South Carolina cotton
wnrehouse certificates gotten out by
the correct system should be about as
good in England as in South Carolina.
When the farmer stoics a bale of
cotton in a warehouse that is con
trolled by himself and others mutual
ly interested, he has in reality entered
into a kind of banking business that
may bo as good or better than the or
diosry banking business, for the sim
?lo reason that the cotton grower here

In China the pawnbrokers are the

say that all articles of invested capital

Even such artioles of precarious

with the small pawn-ticket dangling
from each rifle. The foregoing is an
illustration of a system of Dusinesa in
successful use for centuries by the
heathen that ought to make tho Chris
tianized South ashamed. Our cotton is
a real legal tender on the markets of
the world and yet we are just now
beginning to think about utilizing tho
great commercial power that is vested

Notes From Denver.
The lOth of April, 1009, has broken
the record as tho coldest day of that
day since 1840. The fruit is all killed
or injured so that it will drop off, and
nearly all early vegetables aro destroy
ed. Ik*iv'ethe heavy frost on Mon
day morctug there was a freeze and
ice an eighth o? an inch thick was seen.
A heavy frost again this morning
(Tuesday) completed the work of de
struction. Many say the wheat crop
is injured to some extent, and all the
early corn ia out down. There will be
much extra vc; ic for farmers and gar
deners to do. Those who planted cot
ton early will have to replant, as the
seed has rotted in the ground, and
every plant that was above ground ia
killed. There is a great soaroity of
sweet potatoes in this section. So
many rotted in the banks and those
that were bedded out have rotted
sinco. There is a croat demand for
sweet potato plants, and they are hard
to find. The man who could discover
a method of putting up sweet potatoes
so they would keep sound every wiuter
would deserve a patent or a life time
