Cotton Governed by the Law of
Supply and Demand.
Free Silveritcs Should S u ly This
History of Froduction and the
Prices Since 119'. What the
Record of Crops Proves.
No EtTcct on Prices.
-ant> spread, nt rreo coinage sentiment
in tho southern states has been almost
tntirely duo to the belief that th? low
jirice of cotton Was caused by tho adop?
tion of tho gold standard. Tlu> main
argument of tho advocates of a .">(> cent
dollar in tbis section of tho country has
been that the alleged demonetization of
silver was the cause of tho marked fill
in cut ton during tho r:!st '->:! years.
A bulletin Jnst issued by the depart?
ment of agriculture giving the history
of tho production and price of cotton for
over 100 years proves couolusively that
the n?o of silver as money lias nothing
to do with the decline in value of cot?
ton. Beginning with 1791, witb acton
of 8.S89 bales, v rth on an average 20
cents per pound m the United States,
the prodnctiou rapidly increased daring
tho next ten years to 310,620 bales, aud
tho price at tho same time advanced lo
44 cents. In 1802 the crop was 2 11,228
"bales, of which 120,019 wero shipped to
Grc:it Britain, bnt, owing to tho great?
ly increased supply and a largo stock?
101,000 bales?on hand at tho close of
tho year, tho price dropped tu 10 oents
per pound iu New York.
Iu spite of tliis remarkable decrease
in price the crop increased to !l4U,0f?0
?bales in IS 10. worth 16 cents. In 1810
iho crop Wad 457,506 bales, but the
enormously increased demand from
Groat Britain forced prices up to 20*^
cents, and (he next veer to 84 cents.
/These high prices caused nu increase in
the acreage of cotton, and by 1820 tho
crop was 600,001 bales and the price
dropped to 17 cents. The prodnctiou in?
creasing, prices tell, in 1822, to 11.40
cents, aud in 18C7, with a crop of !>57,
281 bales, and with 562,800 bales in
stock, to 0. 'J;i cents.
By 1834 an iucreaso in tho European
.-demand for cotton had advanced the
?price to nearly 13 cents, with n crop of
1,205,894 bales. For the next Jive years
prices fluctuated widely, averaging from
)1K to 30 cents per pound, and when, iu
1810, the crop amounted to 2,1", 7,865
?bales, the average price went down to
8.92 cents. The great crops und the ao
cumulation of large stocks in Liverpool
caused n still further decline, in l*-);,
teaching 5 cents, the lowest recorded
price, with a crop of 2,804,508 bales.
By 1850 prices had advanced (o 12.84
cents, and for tho next ten years aver?
aged abont 11 cents, tho crop increasing
to ^,?3,ri,??7 in 1860 and to 4,861,292
i The war which broke out in 1801
brought on the "cotton panic," which
lasted to 1860, when prices wont as higli
as ?1.K9 per pound. Tho close of tli"
?war left many of tho cotton growing
States iu an impoverished condition, and
it was not, until 1^70 that the crop was
us larjpi as that of 1860. In the menu
time the price had f.?11 > u with tho grad?
ual increase in prodnctiou nntil in 1S71,
with a crop of 4,862,817'bales, it aver?
aged 16.95 cents. In 1S72 cotton was
badly damaged by excessive ruins, nud
With a crop of only 2,074,861 bales, the
price reached 2Q.48. In ISsti the crop
was 6,701,252 bales and the price had
fallen to 12.02.
Tho increased European demand for :i
timo prevented prices falling to the level
of the decade previous to the war, lint
by U'3'.i the stock on hand began to in?
crease beyond the demand, and in 1891
the unheard of crop of 8,652,607 bales
forced the price down to 0.08 cents. In
1892 tho crop was 0,086,879 balos, tho
stock on hand amounting to 2,263,000
bales. Prices fell to 7.04 cents, bnt ad?
vanced In 1893, when ou account of un?
favorable wrath".- the crop fell off to
?3,700,305 bales, to 8.24 cents. An in?
crease to 7,549,817 bales in 1804 Was
followed by a decline in price, and the
greatest crop on record in l S'.>5, amount?
ing to about 9,476,435 bales, brought
? down the price to (j.

Tho wool trade is growing with mar?

North, Bocrotnry of the Nutioual Associ?
ation of W.ml Maiiufttoturors of the

increase in the value of wool, adds,
"Wages in tho woolen und worsted in

This is Mifl seei lid increase that has
occurred in the wages of operatives in

The other was from 10 to 15 per cent,
und in all oases the advance was volun?
tary. Simultaneously with tho first in

CLUBS AND BUSINESS WOMEN.
A FtWM or the Sn'dr?-t Which I? Not Of?
Mrs. Barbara N. Qalpin, tho assist?
ant business manager of tlio Somervillo
Journal, in a recent paper before the
(Georgia State Fetleration of Women's
Clubs, presented some sensible views
upon the value of u woman's club to a
business woman, a subject that has not
been heretofore much considered. Mrs.
Cfalpin MRtrnmos that the woman's club
should bo both educational and social
and th*n asks how it affects tho busi?
Toher benefit generally, she replies;
to her detriment sometimes. The old
saying that time is money is pertinent.
If she bo in business for herself, Bhowill
know bow much of this coin she can iu
vest in club life. If she is employed by
another, she must consider another's in?
terests. A business woman connected
With a club or two will make not only
friends, but business patronage, The
wider circle of friends she has tho more
successful financially sho is likely to
be,. This mercenary view, however, is
not the most beneficial. Thegreater part
of her titue is spent in a struggle with
bad bills, exacting onstoiners, close bnr
gainstuid financial anxiety. She gets in?
to a xroovo of worry out of which she is
rarely jostled, and hero is where the
club proves a blessing. It takes her into
a different atmosphere. The tighter vein
of lifo is touched, and sho is rested,
chcorod and made stronger.
An enthusiastic, club woman can sel?
dom see any bod affects front clnb asso?
ciation, but a business woman often
finds (hem. There is an almost irresist?
ible fascination about club life, and
sometimes she is led to give time to
meetings :tt the expense of her regular
dutii>s. The fascination increases, and
her best thought noes to hor club, and
so before sh;> realizes it her business in?
terests are jeopardized.
Another point of injury is tho amount
of time and attention a business woman
is often culled upon to give to her club
friends whoso own time seems to ho
comparatively wort it less. These friends
go into her office or store and talk for
an hour or more on any subject nndor
the sun except that connected wirb her
business, never realizing that this, to
her, pleasant call means hurried work
the rest of the day for tho woman al?
ready short of lime. 1 know at least one
woman who lost her position as ur-ist
ant business manager of a good concern
because, clnb associates made her ofllcon
sort of mooting ground and she was too
careful of (hen- feelings to tell thorn
that their friendliness was jeopardizing
her pi isitiou.
Tho advantages ot club lifo to a busi
noss woman are many. A woman with
good business ability and a clear head is
n?t a useless member of a club; the
benefit is mutual. The business woman
is valuable to tho club; the clnb is more
so to her, for it gives not only financial
benefit, Intellectual advancement and
social privilege, but the loving compan?
ionship ami tender sympathy of the real
rulers of tho world?true women.
