Market Cotton Crop''Slowly. -
Never has a better or more prom
ising opportunity to get full worth
of his product confronted the cotton
producer than now, says the Atlanta
Constitution. It is pointed out in a
letter from C. J. Hayden, of Atlanta,
writing form Manchester, England,
and published today, that the Eng
lish spinner has been and is still suf
fering from the scarcity of supply of
cotton. He is counting on the season's
son's crop, which he has been told
will be the largest ever produced, to
recoup his losses. He is organized,
has all the money he wants at his
command and he is going into the
field with the opening of the season
to beat down the price of the coming
crop and garner it in on the losest
' Consensus of opinion among the
producers who are best qualified to
judge conditions and prospects, -is
that this season's crop h*.s been
overestimated. It was pointed out at
the recent meeting of the Georgia
State Agricultural Society at Way
cross, that the tendency of th* season
has been to grow more weed than
boll and that the fruitage as com
pared with the stalk, will quite
disappointment;. In a ommuiication
published today, W. J. Wingate, of
Meigs. Ga., states, further that this
season's cotton is largely a bottom
crop, which will mature early thus
fighting the danger of heavy market
ing in the fall months with nothing
to back it up later in the seaso.
The too evident effect of flooding
the market early in the season would
therefore be t bring a much lower
price^ for cotto:i thus sold than it is
actually worth based u;f>n the real
j crop outlook. Then there is the dam
age to the crop from the cotton cater
pillar in the west, whLh, added to
that of the boll weevil is making more
serious inroods on the crop tuan have
yet been taken into consideration.
Thus, from the stadpoint o! the sea
son's crop, the producer hay an ad
vantage which he can put to uood use.
If he goes straight to market with
all his cotton in the beginning of the
season prices will go smash and the
foreign manufacturer will win, as he
Is right now planning to do. Exper
ience of past seasons has so well dem
onstrated this that it should l>e need
less to give the producer warning
It has happened repeatedly and will
happen again, unless there comes
what must be almost a revolution in
crop marketing methods?a gradual
feeding to the market of otton as
the manufacturer and the consumer
need it, and are prepared to take it
at the price it is actually v.-orth!
The foreign manufacturei wants
nothing better than the fic-odxng of
the market In theearly months o' the
season; he thrifesnpon it. It Is a bear
movement for the unfortunate results
of which the producer has only him
self to blame. It would se suicidal
business policy for the manufacturer
or the merchant to put the whole of
his product on the market at once;
the same policy spells dis^ter for
the producer of cotton or uny other
Farmers generally are in bettter
shape than they have ever been:
they owe less money,* and, with the
aid of the banks they can sell their
cotton during the season as the
price is right and save n.-illions of
dollars. This is a plain business
proposition; and if the producers will
watch the market, in an organized
way, selling when they can get full
value and holding when heavy re
ceipts or bear operations temporarily
depress the price, there is no ques
tion that they will reap the. reward.
Hypocrisy of the World.
The Charleston Evening Post
shows up the hypocrisy of the New
York World and gives us a glimpse
of the hollowness of that great news
paper's reform pretenses. The Post
sa?d for months the World has been
crying out against the giaat money
trust, of which it says, J Pierpolnt
Morgan is the head. The World has
insisted that the money trust is the
worst of all trusts, and thc-t it should
be broken up by the law or with an
axe or in any other old way. The
howl The World has 'been making
against the money trust has been
Governor Woodrow Wilson, of New
Jersey, has been goin.'5 about the
[ country for quite a spell, ringing the
changes and the welkin against the
great business combinations and ag
gregations of wealth e?d naming
the money trust in the same relative
position on the list as the angel gave
to A'bou Ben Adhem's name. Dr.
Wilson told his tale distinctly and
emphatically over two months ago.
when he spoke in Columbia, under
the auspices of the South Carolina
Press Association. He has been tell
ing it ever since in all parts of the
country. And most of the time The
New York World has been saying the
But a few days ago the World
learned that Gov. Wilson was saying
this thing, and what do vou think it
did? Hail him as a political proph
et, of course, and wish him more
power to his voice. Not a bit of it.
The World reared back upon its hind
legs, pawed the air a. piece and
screeched out an inquiry as to
whether Dr. Wilson was Bryaniz
ing," saying that if he was doing
that it feared It would never be able
to stand by and for him if he ran for
President. And why? because, said
The World, it was a manifest absur
dity for anybody to say there was or
could be a money trust. It is one
of the funniest and most disgusting
bits of cant that ever was exhibited
in our political show.
The Post says "of course Gov. Wil
son is Bryanlzlng and equally, of
course the World is Bryanizing. Col.
Roosevelt Bryanized early In the
game, and Mr. Taft late. Attorney
General V?lkershain ^ryanlzes on
tour, though he sticks to the inter
ests when he is working on his port
folio. Practically all the politicians
who hope to get something in the
way of recognition ami elevation at
the hands of the people Bryanize,
and occasionally a hu^ibug newspa
per does the same thing:. Mr. Bryan's
cries of 1896 have become fashion
able, and most aspirants for national
leadership are. echoing them. Few
of these, however, are Bryanized to
the point of really meaning what
That has been the secret of Mr.
Bryan's failure, continues the Post.
He was too literal. What he said he
would do people have believed he
meant to do, so they wouldn't give
him the chance. The trust magnates
had no such 'idea of Col.. Roosevelt,
so they stood by him and took all of
his cussing. The World finds it good
business to denounce Mr. Morgan's
money trust, but when it comes to a
suggestion that this should be bust
ed, it has quite a different feeling.
That would take away from New
York something of its power to dom
inate the finances of the country,
and nobody in business in New York
can stand for such a thing.
