Here is some important: information
for cotton growers that was read be
fore the Anderson County Farmers'
Union on lui?x June. Thin extract was
taken from b? address delivered at
the Anderson bankers' Association by
a tinanbier from Boston on the subject
ol cotton certificates:
"In the matter of collateral paper
offered by mills whose financial state
ments are not anoh aa will warrant
their single name paper being market
ed, various forma of warehouse re
ceipts covering cotton bave been offer
ed m the North. Snob receipts cover
ing* cotton stored in the warehouses of
the mi?B have not been well received
in Now York or Boston, for the reason
that the cotton never really passes from
the owner's hands into an independent
"If a warehouse receipt is to be re
ceived with favor, it must be issued by
a company of sufficient capital and
financial strength to insure its stabil
ity'in all markets, whose management
must bo ouch as to render it absolute
ly certain that ouch receipts represent
the actual cottou stored aa described,
and that it will be held by the ware
housing coming on its own premises,
or upon leased premises seperate and
distinct from those belonging to the
mill to whom the receipt is issued.
Personally I am a great believer in
this class of security and I am glad to
know that in Sonth Carolina a number
of independent standard warehouses
have been built, and that companies
have formed, or are in process of or
ganization to develop this clnra of bus
iness, I believe you will bave no
trouble in getting unlimited capital in
the north at low rates, to carry cotton
warehouses in this manner."
Fanners' Cotton Exchange Warehouse
After hearing reporte from the va
rious local Unions of the county and
discussing the same, the consensus of
opinion was that the Union at large
had reported in favor of bnilding cot
ton warehouses of their own, and the
following resolutions were unanimous
ly adopted as a starter towards the
perfecting of plans that we may get to
work at once to raise the necessary
capital for building these houses:
Resolved, 1st. That in order to pro
vide a reliable and safe plan by which
all cotton growers may obtain ad
vances on reasonable terms on bis cot
ton when current priceo are not profit
able to the grower, we recommend
the bonded warehouse system of the
2nd. That in order to raise capital
to bni'" these warehouses we recom
! mend * the shares he placed at the
.par.va.uo. of one dollar .Ach, and that
all land owners or tenants subscribe
ono shnro for each bale of cotton rais
ed on their farms for tho year 1905.
:Jrd. In order to insure protection to
tho interest of cottou growers these
certificates of shares in these cotton
warehouses bo written on a plnu of
noutransferablo stock, except by a
two-thirds vote of all tho stock invest
ed in each warehouse.
4tb. That all funds thus paid into
the bands of local unions for warehouse
ouiposea be deposited in some responsi
ble bank aubject to draft of district
warehouse committee for tho use of
constructing and maintaining ware
houses for the Uho of cotton growers.
5th. Aa all cotton growers are mu
tually interested in controlling the
marketing of cotton, wo recommend
that theae warehouses be located at
such places in the district as a major
ity vote of all the wnrehouse certifi
cates of stocks may indicate each local
business agent casting the votes for
their respective local unionB.
If you have a better plan to get up
these warehouses be sure to put it in
writing and submit it to the next
County Union on 11th July. Remem
ber, that thin ntocl: for warehouse fund
is to be made up by the local Unions
between now and the next county
meeting. It is generally understood
that the amount of stock taken were
to be based upon an estimation of
bales for this year'a crop of cotton.
This warehouse stock will bean in
vestment that may be made to pay
you good dividends besides increasing
your power to protect your interest by
controling the marketing of cotton.
The Farmers' Cotton Exchange.
MucL has been said recently about
getting the proper man to manage our
cotton exchange. We have designa
ted this man as our business agent for
our district or county, when reallv he
should be r.?thiog more nor less than
the manager of our district fermera'
Now, it io a well known fact in the
commercial world that in order to do
business either the manager of this
cotton exchange or cotton exchange
itself moat have sufficient capital or
licenciai strength to insure its strength
and stability in all markets; or the cot
ton exchange itself must be a corpora
tion backed by its bonded warehouses
with sufficient securitiea to make its
rating and reputation as to its manage
ment ereditable in proportion to the
amount of basinesa in view.
Banks, cotton mills or other corpora
tions are not rated in a financial way
according to the individual wealth of
their managers, but their ratings are
quoted according to amount invested
and character of its management.
About the financial rating of the
farmers' cotton exchange, we have on
ly to refer to the average crop of cot
ton to ahow to the cotton growers of
Anderson County that if they will only
line up in this warehouse business half
as well as they have been talking, the
cotton growers of Anderson County
can organize a cotton exchange of as
cood financial rating as any corpora
tion in the county. Government cot
ton reports show that Anderson county
produced over 60,000 bales last year
and that she will continue to average
over 50,000 bales.
If half the growers would subscribe
$1.00 per bale for building the ware
houses and deposit houses
only one-tenth of their cotton as an
additional collateral, we have approx -
imately $25,000 in realty and a capital
of $ 125,000.00 in cotton and could tre
ble this without embarrassment at any
ThiP.it would Be?tn, ia a nucleus to
start a real good creditable couuty cot
Farmers, it. is up to you to put up
j the stull' or shut up ami go way back
I and sit down and behave yourselves
[ like you have been doing, and whon
tho cotton maniuulators levy a -tribute
of $5.00 or $10.00 per bale on your cot
ton just go right up and turn it in as
usual. Which will you do?
Washington Accepted as Place of Peace
St. Petersburg, June IS. ? Russia has
finally and definitely accepted .Wash- I
ington as the meeting place of the Rus
sian and Japanese plenipotentiaries,
tho foreign ottlce having waived its
request for reconsideration at the per
sonal action of the emperor, whose de

portuning to President Roosevelt's
proposal for a peace conference, is
hereby manifested. After his confer

Lamsdortr, the foreign minister, went
last night to Peterhoft' and laid the

In certain quarters here envy and
jealousy of the United States are ill

at what was declared to be a "rebuff
Even in peace circles gloomy faces
were drawn at the report that Russia
would insist upon The Hague, bat
thanks to the personal attitude of the
emperor and of the well put represen
tations of Ambassador Meyer, the
threatened diplomatic mountain has
decreased to a molehill, over which
negotiations can now proceed rapidly.
The Gazetta, which is known as a
mouthpiece of the foreign office, de
clares that nothing is yet known re

that Russia may not balk at an indem

railroad is possible as a nienns of in
