re THE COTTON FACTORY.
, Farmers' Unions and Outside Capital.
he lts Sheould Co-Operate.
ed -
ht Editor Ouachila Telegraph:
e I received a copy of your paper of
ed last week's Issue, in which I see resdo
,( lutions of the Farmers' Union of Oua
le t chita pariah and directors of the Cot
go too Yarn and Bagging Factory of
Monroe, in regard to building a cotton
factory at Monroe.
?i I am glad to know that the capital
on Ists of your city are in actual sympathy
nd with the Farmers' Union. They prove
he their sympathy by their actions. Not
in, like the sympathy expressed by the
apt Cotton Exchange of New Orleans,
Sa which seems to be only from their lips.
or Their expression of sympathy reminds
an moof the sympathy expressed by the
wid writing of obituaries for the widows
x-_ and orphans of the dcceased. They
Ion write the word sympathy and that is
m. the last of it.
for Let the members of the Cotton Ex
the change prove that they are in sympa
iw- thy with the Farmers' Union by put,
pill tiog their hands down in their pockets,
Iof as the members of the Cotton Yarn
i1e and Bagging Factory have done. The
sy capitalists and merchants of the South
we could help us If they would; but they
410- prefer to speculate on us. They are
c- like -the man that told the drunken
fellow In the ditch that was hollowing
"help, help," flne and coarse. lie
)ar- said, '"damn you, those's two of you,
is help yourselves." Doning two of us,
as. (Farmers' Union and Farmers' Alll
or ance), that is what we intend to do.
age But it has been the cry of the world
I a that the Soutth is not able to build fac
ad- tories, and they have heard it so long~
in that they believe it to be a fact, and I
the am afraid it will take some time con
thie vInce them of their error. But I hope,
through the Farmers' Union and Farm
dly ers' Alliance, with what capital will
for go with us, that we will in a few years
ted be able to manufacture every bale of
us, cottoo ratsed in the South. Our success
Sdepends upon it, and we will never
control the price of cotton any otheor
se- way. We are simply raisingthe cot
IC," ton and letting *Eugland control the
nan price of the cotton and goods. She
ato 3says what we shall take for cotton and
eakwhat we shall pay for goods. There
fore we are geitting $40 for a baleof
and cotton and paying not less than $20o
can for the goods made therefronh, we paya
loIng the expense of shipping cotton to
g the factory and goods back and the
less of bagging and ties.
Pa Brother farmers, did you ever think
her- of the enormous amount of money we
and artebetng defrauded out of every year?
er There is not a business firm on earth
ly that would asubmit to such, and why
It Ia the custom of the world for the
5 coNlocaner to pay the expense of manue
Ioet ciurlog, boxing and shipping; but it
is the revee ith the cotton raiser.
JIt .' d ._t a[the. price of our cotton
!' -er-ll the expense of
th a tare of 80 pounds I
' nt~ y bale tocover loss list
onl'glg `and ties. If it is ust for pez
the consumerato pay for the boxing tlo
and shipping of goods, we certainly the
should have's price sufficient for our qui
cotton to -ever all expense of shipping, I
selting and bagging and 'lies, for the an,
boxes and barrels are as worthless to ati
'us as the bagging and ties are to them. the
We arploslog enough on our cottop in fat
two. yeare to puild .factories enough in ed
the Bptth to .manufacture every bale
of cQtton raisedin it. 81
To povP the .asertion, I submit the tat
following figures: Tare of 30 pounds tic
per.bale on 7,600,000 bales at $2.60 per co
bIale,,is $19,000,000. Expense of ship- re
t ping coqtonl om home .to the factory tt
at $8 per bale is $60,800,000.
' The South. consumes the goods of to
]not lees than 1,000,000 bales; the freight hi
on the-goods from the factory to the or
t coutry store is not less than $4 per th
e b1*le, which is $4,000,000. bi
a You see we are losing on one cotton at
a crop the amount of $83,800,000 on bag- tr
i giog, ties and shipping, so in two m
years, by manufacturing our cotton at w
h bome we will save the amount of ci
:-167,600,000. Now is this all we are d
a losing? Count the profits on these n
u goods made from this 1,000,000 bales hi
cotton, and you will see a loes of ji
$0,000,000; in two years $72,000,000;
total loses in two years $289,600,000, o
o which is a low estimate of our loss,and u
d more money than there is invested in II
all the cotton factories of the world. I
At present there is about 756 cotton r
' factories supplying 607,000 hands with I
- a capital of $208,000,000. c
16 Can any one be surprised at the a
:e southern farmer being so poor and t
i getting poorer every year? Shall we e
always submit to such outrages at this? r
I say no! How are we to remedy this t
it evil? By .the Farmers Union and Al- a
is liance uniting with capitalists that will a
i unite with us, and borrowing' a suffi- i
cient amount of money to build cotton c
' factories enough in the South to man- I
o' ufacture every bale raised in it. By I
IF doing this we can control the price of I
it cotton and goods, and instead of real- I
s izing only $40.00 per bale for cotton we
can get what we please. I say manu- I
facture our cotton.at home, if we have
at to mortgage every foot of land we own I
a for money to build factories with.
le- This and this alone will lead us to ,
Id prosperity, and In a few years you will
see the South the most prosperous
country on earth.
h- So let us commence building at
he once, at the most convenient points
e. for the expense of shipping and selling
is an item to be taken into consider
ation. Let us have one at Monroe
and one at Alexandria first, as the
capitalists of those places are showing
i' by their actions, that they are in sym
pathy with the Farmers Union, and
are willing to assist them.
Bro. Whited, ban't your Union go
of $7.50 better? Our Union went $10.00
so- per member. We- have in the state
la- 23,000 members. At ten dollars per
member will give us,$280,000. Monroe
ot- $50,000 and lot, Alexandria $10,000 and
of lot, will give us $290,000 which will
on start three cotton factories. Brothers
lets have them, this is our only road
to success. Don't say we can't build
them, we can it we will only try.
by Some say our constitution prohibits us
we from uniting with outside capital.
Tot rhen let us so amend our constitution
the that it will not, for we need all the
help we can get. Birn.

Lhe TiHE BAGUUG!I TRUST.
ws (.allant Fight of the Farmers' Alliance
ley Agaaust Oppression.
t is NEW YORK, July 24.-A special to
the Times from Birmingham, Ala.,
%x- says; The trouble between the Farm
pa- ers' Alliancs and the Jute Bagging
,ut. Trust is rapidly rssuming warlike pre.
portions in the cotton growing States.
, The Alliance men have resolved to
are use no jute bagging for wrapping the
('he present crop, but to use cotton bagging
nth instead. It is argued on the one side
hey that the farmers cannot hold out in
the fight; that the cotton wrapped in
ae cotton bagging will not be received at
ken the compresses and by toreign buyers,
lng and, as the cotton crop is shipped
IHe abroad, the farmers will be forced to
ou give in in order to got their cotton on
the market in morchantable shape;
u also, that many farmers, who have
il given mortgages on their crops to ad
do. vancing merchants, cannot hold their
rld cotton back, but will Lt forced to put
fec- on the market in a merchantible shape
and sell it to pay their dcbf3.
Oul On the other hand, the Alliance men
Id I are determined to fight the trust to the
on- end. It is war to the knife. They
ipe, have resolved to beat the truPt if they
rm- have to hold the entire cotton crop
will from the market until the combine is
tars broken. T''hey propose to work in unti
e of son and present a solid front against
ess the trust. It is generally understood
ver also that the other farmer organizations
Iher of the country are ready to tight hand
cot- In-band with the Alliance men. The
the Alliance is 85,000 strong lu Alabamna,
She andl will get heavy recruits from the
and Wheel and Rangers.
ere- At the meetng of the National Al
lef liance, held in Birmingham recently,
)200 It was resolved to use cotton bagging
sy- exclusively and give jute the go-by,
n to anti the farmers seem determined to
the carry it out on that line if it takes all
the summer and fall. The Farmersa'
ink Alliance of Alabama has just purchasedt
we a site for a cotton baggnlog factory at
a? Florence, mnti-iv 'ciaes- .s.sakIn ,00
rth yards of cotton bagging per day by
vby September 1. The threatened war
will be made even more Interesting by
the the fact that the cotton crop promises
aut to be the heaviest yield in ten or fil
It it teen years.
iThe Basis of Representation. Judi
and
(Sugar Planter.)] "
Not long since a newspaper pub- ry's
leshed in a cerlain north Louisiana vie
pariah boastfully remarked that "ow- root
lng to our increased representation, met
the people of our pariah will have "
quite a 'esy' in the next conoventln." ball
Some months ago The Planter feebly trul
and humbly undertook to call the lare
attentlon of the Democratic leaders to pag
the danger that menaces the party in bly
future from the representation accord- the
ed certain parishes in the State. He
Until otherwise changed by the eloe
State Central Committee, the represen- hot
tation of all parishcs in State conven- elti
tion (and, very probably, in all other an
conventions) will be based upon the the
returns of the last gubernatorial elsec the
tion. gat
Now we do not for a omoment wish cbi
to be understood as objecting to the eal
heavy majorities polled for the Dem- am
ocratic nominees in April, 1888-on wit
the contrary, we heartily approve of as
big Democratic majorities at all times the
and under all conditions--but the
truth of the matter Is that while the set
methods by which c. rtalh" parishes the
t were carried overwhelmingly Demo- de
f cratic can be justified on the Jesuitical wI
5 doctrine that "ithe end justifies the to
a means," representation based upon pe
a iat vote is open to very serious ob- to
f jection.
I; The advocates of the present basis be
I, of representation have time and again J.
I urged in its defence that it is estab- Us
a lished by the State Central Committee; an
I. that the large majorities referred to to
a represent just so much skill, labor and he
b intelligence on the part of the Demo- ge
crats who secuted them, and that they fto
e are entitled to proportionate represen- di
d tat ion as a reward for services render- th
e ed the party. We are prepared to al- st
? mit that these gentlemen deserve a at
is great deal of credit for what they have
I- accomplished, but we deny that they
II are entitled to a power in convehtions cc
I- which they have no right to possess- a
n a power which is unjust to their fel- C
n- low-Democra's in the all-white par- is
y ishes, and which, if allowed to con- it
of tinue, will Inevitably disrupt the d
1- party. t1
'e Under the representation accorded a
u. the various parishes by the State G
ee Central Committee, Rapides, Concor- re
rn dia, Tensas, Catahoula and a few other G
h. parisheb can virtually control a State S
to convention and dictate the nomination y
ill of officlals. Is it right and just that o
us these parishes, having no larger Dam- i
ocratic (white) population than an a
at equal number of other parishes that c
its could be named should wield such r
og power? Is it right and proper that one I
tr. Rapides Democrat should have as t
oe much voice in the convention as three c
he East Felicianalana? Can we afford to r
ig allow this state of affairs to continue?
mt- Most emphatically, nt!
od In all fights with the common ene
my the Democrats of Louisiana can t
go resort to all means to win, on the I
.00 theory that "all's fair in the war;" I
ste but they cannot afford to be dishonest e
ter withlo the party by accepting repre- i
oe sentation based upon a vote that they
nd know is not legitimately Democratic.
ill It .is high time the party leaders
are were beginning to apply the knife in
ad order to rid the Democratic body pol
ild Itic of a sore that Is fast corrupting and
ry. poisoning the party-aye, threatening
us its very existence.
al. Let us have white supremacy in I
on fact as well as in name. Let the
he representation of each and every par
isht in the State be based alone upon
ar- the actual WHITE DEMOCtATIC VOTE,
white primaries in all casts. With
this done all will be well. But a con.
tlinuance of the present basis of rep
resentation will bring about a serious
see split which may eventually entirely
disrupt the Democracy.

of A young gentleman of Brooklyn a
0 while ago made a .ten' weeks' trip
s- abroad. He had Only $150 to- spend,
and hit purpose was-to travel Just as
far as he could make his money list.
e- He first provided himself with a
i round-trip ticket for the cheapest
y cabin passage he could find. Of course
o he could have ec.momizid a little
or further by traveling in the steerage,
- but he drew the line there. As he
as was able to strike out at at a gait of
ci thirty milesit day, hewalked much of
of the way between London and the
ly Sco'ch Hilghlands, going Op one ildi of
v. England and down the other. Tuen
ah he traveled through France to the
ry Alps, made lis way down the Rhine
tie to Holland and back again 'o London,
w where' he embarked for home. Hc
es spent a week In London and another
!- In Paris, taw the grand opera in the
he French capitai for 35 can's and on the
b- train trave id third el-w s both in
rt Great Britain and on the contlh ent.
trt He reached home with 11 cent t in his
he pocket and a nice little colletior of
o. plhotographs, which he had butoght
or out of his meager fund.. Pderhaps f'w
