The address delivered by Mr, B. P.

Cotton Association ou salesday was
much ap j) reclined by those who beard
it. At tbo request of J. C. Stribling,
of Pendleton, Mr. Mauldin bas in
corporated some of tho main points
and facts made lu bis address in a
letter, and Mr. Btribling has sent
rae letter to The Intelligencer for pub

The data given is very significant, and
shows that the products of tho cotton
mills compare favorably with the cot*
ton products of the farms. We are
also pleased to note the stand taken by
the bankers at New Orleans in b .-half
of the cotton farmers. Farmers sbonid
be very thankful to the bankers fur
their material aid in general, as well
as for their prompt action at New
Mr. Maulditi's letter is os follows:
J. C. Stribling, Esq. Pendleton, S. C.
Dear Sir: 1 have your favor of even
dato and take pleasure in complying
with your request as far as 1 can. 1
stated in my speech ou Monday, that
when the National Bank of Anderson
was established about thirty-two
years ago, it was the only bank in a
territory now embraced by the counties
of Anderson, Pie kens, Oconce, Abbe
ville and Gleenwood; that the capital
of thia bank was only $50,000, and that
our deposits never exceeded $300,000;
that in this same territory there are
wo*/ thirty -seven banky, with a capi
tal and surplus of 832"7?,000 and de
posits of ?3,000,000 or more. 1 further
stated that white tba people were'be
ing educated to use the banks, a great
many were still holding aloof with
their deposits; and that in my opinion
if all the money thus held out of cir
culation, could be gotten into the
banks, tho banks of Anderson County
would not need to go away to borrow
money to carry the business of the
county, even afc such a time aa this
,when they jure perhaps car ry ingr over
10,000 bales of .cotton for the farmers
\ My data as to cotton, which X stated
was the basia of our prosperity, was
: that.the county produced approximate
ly00,000 bales i.f conon, which ot $60
a bal? was 98,100,000;. that the- cotton
mills of the county used approximately
110,000 bales, thus bringing into the
coan ty 00,000 -raero
County produced; that the gross income
from manufacturing this cotton was
oboe*l-$40 a bale, making a total of
$4,400,000, which added to the $8,000,
000 brought in by the raw cotton pro
duced in the county made a total of
over $7.000,000 as nu annual revenue
?rom cotton alone. I made the state
ment and now reiterate it, that every
?lass in the county is interested in
high price cotton and the banks
especially, as. they make - their largest
'earnings wheo money is abundant and
the wheels, bf business: are moving
smoothly.' ?' further stated that even
'the cotton mills would net; object to
high ps iee cotSoo, if it was a steady

"There Now, We. Told You so."
We have contended all along that
the guano combine knew moro about
what the organized farmers would call
for in tho way of fertilizers than tho
organized farmer did about it. These
fertiliser nien seem to have known
about n year back just about how
much fertilizer tho farmers were likely
to take thia season, nud tho combiuo
agreed to make all that was needed
and no more, and these fellows have
agreed upon a profitable price for
their products, and, us they are well
organized, they'"expect to place their
goods upon tho market at their own
Brices-uot yours. They have their
usin?es in their own hands by tho
power of a close organization.
Farmers, can't we profit by taking a
few lessons from those shrowd busi
ness men and apply it to our business,
and not produce more cotton this sea
son than consumers need)
Farmers, wo aro un against a great
big business proposition that is world
wide, because the whole world use our
cotton, therefore, we may expect the
whole world to strive to get our cotton
just as cheap as possible, and if we do
not organize to protect our interest wo
need not expect others to do it for us!
