ADDRESS THE FAK*EKS OP OR
These Two Big Cot'on. Assncialion Of
ficers /re Greeted by a
Toe Orangeburg County Cotton As
sooiatl >n held i s regular raeetirg cn
last Saturday and was most profitably
eoc-eroilned by aiffareat members.
The a'-tendance on the County Asso
ciation on Saturday was quits large,
bnt a still larger crowd was presem
on M..v. day to hear addresses by the
Hia. Harvey Jordan, of Atlanta, Ga.,
Pre3'dsnt of the Southern Cotton As
sociation, and the Hon. E. D. Smith,
of B'? lopTiUe, S. 0 , Ganeral Field
Agent of the Association, who had
come all the way from Oklahoma,
traveling ought and day, tobe her.
i Monday. They were very much fatl
gu*d r> om tnelrlong journey, but they
made splendid speeches and were en
? thnsiabtlcally cheared and heartily en
Both of these gentlemen have re
cently gone over the entire cotton
; belt, and they, are certain that the
present cotton crop Is a short one, and
that the farmers will roaliza a good
prise for it if they will only act to
v getber. They give the farmers much
rou?? advice. Mr. Jordan advises the
' farmers to be more careful in ginning
abi preparing their cotton for market,
and aoove all to keep it well housed
- and cut of the weather if it was not
placed in a warehouse. He advise d
the farmers to sell only about one
tenth of their crop monthly and in
this ? way maintain a good and average
- price for cotton the year round. He
was sure this plan was possible if the
f&rmers would only work together
and help each other.
Mr. Smith addressed the meeting
along the same line that Mr. Jordan
did He spoke of organizing a big as
foolatinn with a large oapitol to buy
up and keep off the market all cotton
when the price was not right, and In
this way prevent a glutting of the
cotton market and maintain prices.
Mr. Smith bandied his subject most
el-qaently and convinced most of
thoce who heard him that the plan
he advocated was entirely feasable,
and would work a revolution in the
marketing of the cotton crop. Mr.
Smith is a most eloquent speaker,
and generally carries most any crowd
he addresses with him. No one who
comes under the spell of bis eloquenbe
c?n be indifferent to what he says.
Some of those who heard him thought
his p'an feasable while others thought
It impracticable. It is a big ?inject
and would have to be thoroughly di
gested before being put in operation.
The Orangeburg Cotton Assooia
tion has many of our largest and bes',
farmers in it, and has done all it could
to k ,-op up prices. That it has, in com

Hold Your Cotton
Ttecdore H. Pdco is recognized as
a good judge at conditions. He is
kept well informed by a corps of cor
respondents scattered throughout the
cotion belt, and in spite cf his reputa
tion for getting from one side of the
market to the other on short notice
his predictions are not written, weight
and ir fl icnce. Last week Mr. Price
telegrapued a cotton man in Green
ville tf at the market was advancing
on a got eral appreciation of the orop
shortage, and that he expected that
the stap.e would sell at twelve cents.
Ha added that an Immediate decline
may be anticipated in view of the
largely increased receipts, brought
aocut by the high market values,
though t its d&cUne may only be tem
porary. Don't sell your cotton unle.-.s
you get it 'east ten cents for it. *

Preached at St? Pa als Char oh on
Bishop A. W. Wilson, of Baltimore,
senior Blsbopof the Methodist
copal Ohnroh, South presetted at St.
Paul's Church in thin city on Tours
day night last to a large onngrega
tion. Bishop Wilson has this 3tate
within hl* jurisdiction during t>
present year, and he will preside over
the Snith Carolina Conference this
winter. ' He stopped over in Orange
burg on his way to attend Indian
Fields camp meeting. Bishop Wilson Ib
a very a hie man, and his congregation
wns much pleased with bis sermon
The text for the evening was taken
from Corinthians, 13:13. From this
text the speaker delivered a rather
lengthy discourse on the essentials
that go to make up the man. Faith,
hope and charity, he said, were abso
lutely necessary in. every life. Men
must have faith, either in things good
or bad. He spoxe of universal faith
in things Immortal, and showed as a
result of this the uplifting of every
thing in the world.
The Blsboo then spoke of hope.
Hope he said, must go with faith, for
tbev could not be separated. Hope
must come in as a part of every char
acter. Faith~ and hope, these two,
open the way for the greatest of all.
What would the life of any one be, if
there was no hope for the future? It
would certt'nly be a, barren existence
Then he came bo the last, which is
themes!; important of all things,,ta&t
is neoeBsary, charity. He said that
charity in his text, was the same as
love. Ha showed why so muci stress
was laid on this one faculty. "The
greatest of th83e is charity," The
greatest requirement made by God
was to give Him your love. If you
loved Him, you would obey Him.
Then It was the greatest of all. Cod
compels no man to do His will, ubrougf;
love alone Oaristians obey the will of
God. "Love thy neighbor as thy
self," B ihop Wilson said would go a
long way toward making the world
The sermon from the' first to the
last was a strongly delivered argu
ment and was very much enjoyed by
the entire congregation. *
What Can Be Done.
All you farmers that have your bus
iness matters well in hand and are in
position to hold your cotton off of the
depressed market, should go out and
tell your 1?3S fortunate brother farm
ers just how you.managed to do this.
When you do this you are not only
helping your fellow craftsmen, but
you are Increasing the strength of
your own position by bringing in re
cruits for the purpose of controlling
the farmers' own affairs by the farm
ers. If all the farmers in the South
would organize they could control the
price of cotton as well as labor. They
would be a great power as they wou'd
number several million members. No
institution for wrong could stand up
against millions of organized and de
termined farmers, who are b?nde dto
yethsr to stand by the side of- right.
Oganizs, farmers, orgauiza, and you
will win a grand and glorious victory.
Will you do It. *

? Field Agent ? D. Smith, in talk
ing of the ootton situation, says:
"With trade conditions as good as last
year, a twelve million bale crop, which
does not feen probable, ought to
bring 12 } rents instead of 9 cents,
the price now being paid. By concert
of action we can make it bring what
it ought to bring. Without concert
of action we will have to take what
we can get Trie world consumed last
year 12 186 000 bales of cotton. It
consumed not only all th* goods pro

340,000 balQ(; more than in 1904 5,

resident or home; or to move into s

to have bona file maans of support,

The occasion of M r. Till man's ad
-iress on "The Rvce Problem" was th.
opening of the lyceum course in Au
gusta. An Immense audience filled
Miller-Walker hall, from platform to
gallery, and greeted the speaker witb
enthusiasm. The music w.vs furnish
ed by the boys' bar.-l o? the Georgia
Industrial Home at Maoon, a musical
aggregation which has toured the
south in retrular 03ncert work. When
Senator Tillman appeared at the door
of the auditorium, the strains of Dixie
burst upon the air, soon mingled
with the Bhouts and applause of the
immense audience. From a lyceum
standpoint, the event was a perfect
S F. Garllngton, one of the mos'
brilliant of Augusta's younger attor
neys, introduced the speaker. Beu
Tiilman stepped to toe front of the
platform and slowly began:
"Ladles and Gentlemen: Though
in recent years in my pathway has led
me far away from Augusta, and I
have little opportunity during the oo
casional visits to keep in touch with
the people of this grand old city, when
I tell you that 1 was born within 13
miles of this spot and lived there until
I was past '40 yei 1 old, and during
all of my boyhood and younger man
i hood business as well as pleasure of teii
i brought me to this city, you will un
deretmd that 'Augusta' had 'Augusta
people' oan be no strange words to
me, nor can its people be strangers.
"In selecting the rac8,problem a1

will doubtless wonder why I should

pared the folio win/ statement of 6h<
race problem as he ooncclv.'s it, an
up in whioh he declares the sou';;
must act at ones if terrible conse

4. Eyhcfcing for rape of white wo
men by negroes will continue as long
as the orlme is committed and the
fact that in many instances tbe guilty
ficni is not caught intensifies the
hatred of the whites towards the ne
gro raoe and tenis to preolpitate race
cocfl'ota in whioh Innocent and gooc
negroes are too often the only suffer-,
5 Amalgamation is the hop<* and
ultimate purpose of tbe nogroes; the
obliteration of tbe oolor line, and
many white men, too many cblivicu
to their duty to their race and oaBte,
are voluntary criminals In this regard,
whl'e thank God, cur white women
prefer death to Bush a fate. In al
most every community white men can
be?found brazenly living op9nly with
colored women and nothing is said or
dona about it. We must protect our
women at any and all bezards else
they would spurn us and ought to
spurn us; and we must draw tbe line
of caste between white men and black
women and sternly compel its observ
ance, jost as Bternly as we are resolv
ed to oraw the line between black men
and white women. Tbe fact tbat tbe
negro ravishes the white woman while
the white man only lowers himself to
gratify lust with a willing negro wo
man bb morality is concerned makes
the only difference.
6 That most essential and burning
Issue with us is how to prevent rape
ra.fcber than t*y to avenge it. Lynoh
?ng has failed; we must trv some
thing else. As the superior race we
owe It to ourselves to protect the good
and innccoit npgroes, of whom their
are man*/?millions of them in faot?
from fell? teac^erf' and bad leaders
who are rapidly driving the whites to
de^ppratioo and to the massacre of the
negroes, and to a race war which can
have only one result, the destruct'on
of 'he weaker race.
My wu-'is *re bold. There are not
-";.iy who would like to discuss this
question. I shrink from It, but the
Mabjpot i* tco serlousand the situation
too grave fcr me to speak on it at all
and not hew. to the line. Prevent
rape. Sbr-p it?don't try to avenge it
[ mean thr.t is the policy, but G"id
knows Is'd after I had taken the
oitb of office cs governor of Soutn
Carolina with the oath warm on my
lips, that I would lead a mob to lynch
any man, black or white, who would
ravlPh any woman black or white?
and 1 meant it.
"But we want a remedy for rape.
Lynching has not succeeded. We
must have a remedy.
When I come to discuss the remedy
^r thQ remedies for the conditions of
which I have spoken we are confront
ed with difficulties and obstacles
wbich appear almost insuperable,
The storm center of all this trouble
is the necessity for the protection of
the white women of the South from
the fiends who have been turned
loose upon us by Northern fanatics
and we must stop at nothing, how
ever costly and cruel it may appear,
which will afford our women safety
from these davils in humcn form.
The only feasible scheme wbioh I
have ever hit upon has b8en rej^oted
ime and sga'n because it rnvolves a
most radical departure frcm all of cur
ideas of Anglo-Saxon liberty and now
I adopt it as a last resort. It is
nochltg more nor l?ss than the e?tab
ishm'-nt among us of the European
passport system roupled with large
inarea??e of the effi ers of the law,
most of whom are to be stationary or
live at their homes, while in every
0 uoty where the negroes are at al1
mmerous we would have two or more

ALFALFA IB THE SOU 12.
One of the Best Cropa That Can
The Southern field for October says
the cultivation of the prolific hay mak
ing and forage plant commonly known
"s alfalfa, has usually been associated
with the dry sections of the West and
Northwest. Experiments in all parts
of tho Southern Heid during tbe last
few years have fully established the
plant as a valuable addition to the al
ready large variety of hay orops.
D. F. Dunlopof Henry County, VaM
whose experience with alfalfa covers
three years, each with increasing sue
oess, writes to tils publication in most
enthusiastic term Last yatr he
harvested if res r ?ops and had an av
erage of nearly Jlvs tons in all to the
acre for the ueason.
He urges all farmers in the Scuth
to begin its oulivation, and start
?Ith an acre until a stand is secured.
He also advises every one interested
to write the ?. S. Department of
Agriculture, Washington, D. C , and
secur? copies of Farmer's bulletins
Ncs. 31 and 194, on the subject, sent
tree to any address.
The Southern Field" is also In re
ceipt of a letter from B. A. Strong,
of West Point, Miss, forceerly of
Iowa, who given bis exoerl?*r?ce with
alfalfa on a 120 acre field. We quote
from his letter whiob bears date cf
Aug. 31, 1906. as follows:
''The first cutting on May 1st was
one ton per acrp; the second cuttirg,
June 4th, the third cutting, July 15th
wown during our first dry opell, was
one h?ilf ton per acre. We have about
flniflhtd tie fcurtbcuttlrjg, which will
uet one-half ten, makicg three tons
per sere up to Sept. 1st, We expsct
to get two more cuttings to Novem
The best cutting will be grown
during the cool veather of October
and will net us about one ti n per
acre. We have saved all the bay np
to date in good shape and sold it ?15
per ton f. o. b. West Point. Tin
cost of saving and delivering to cars
is 13 per ton. Our profit up to Sept
1st will be 836 per acre With favor
able condit ions up to Nov. 10 h, v*e
will add 818 per acre to our income,
wbioh will make 854 net profiit per
"ore from May 1st to Nov. 10th,
As you know, tbis is on land that
has been plante^ in cotton for seventy
years I paid 820 per aore for it four
years ago. This land has never been
fertil z?d, ihooulated or Irrigated.
Please tell me, can any other section
in the Doited States make an equal
showing in hay or fcrape.
"I would be pleased to have you
oall the next time jou are in tbis
section and make a personal investi
gation. I want you to see my field,
as it is a thing of beautv, and they
say it will last forever."
John C. Webb,tof Demopolis, Ala.,
adds his experience by declaring, at
fcei cutting a 25 acre field Eev^n timfs
last year, and realizing ?bout 8100 an
aore, ''that alfalfa is *he grea'est for
age feed on earth. Anything will eat
it greedily. I made mv entire year's
crops by feediDg my 22 mules a'falfa
hay and no grain, and they looked as
well at tha end of tbe season
as at the start. 1 Intend each
year to increase my acreage."
