Guess About Crop a Fraud.
Nearly every department of the
National Government at Washington
seems to be run in the interest of
crooks and gamblers instead of the
people. The investigation now go
ing on in the pure food and drug di
vision of the Agricultural Depart
ment has revealed some crooked
things that involves its head as well
as other former cabinet members.
In the midst of its numerous investi
gations, which have been so prolific
of sensations, the Democrat}". House
of Representatives should not over
look the Department of Agriculture,
which we believe to be honey-comb
ed with all sorts of rascality.
Take as example, the remarkable
piece of official guessing at; to the
probable size of the coming cotton
crop, which has cost the farmers of
the South thousands of dollars. This
official guess was made before all the
cotton crop was planted, and was is
sued of course entirely for specula
tive purposes. How much *he ras
cals in the Agricultural Department
who contracted the scheme, made
out of it will possibly never be
known. It will be remembered that
some years ago some of the high
officials in the Agricultural Depart
ment were caught at similar rascali
ty and nominally punished. ,
It will be remembered that the
crop reporting bureau of the Agri
cultural Department, disregarding
the law and invarible custom, upon
the basis of the growing crop condi
tion of June 23, made a prediction
as to the size of the cotton crop of
this year, putting it at 14,000,000
bales. This wild guess of an unpre
cedentedly large crop, had a most
disastrious effect on the market,
causing the price of cotton to decline
from fifteen to eleven cente a pound.
The guessers in the Agricultural De
partment were evidently with the
bears, and no doubt secretly divided
the profits made ouf of the trans
Every practical farmer in the
South knows that it is imposible to
tell in June what a cbtton crop will
do in December, and that is exactly
what the guessers in the Agricultural
Department pretended to do. No one
objects to the Agricultural Depart
ment gathering and publishing true
reports as to the crop condition of
cotton, but gueses in June as to the
probable yield of the crop of this
year is a palpable fraud, and no one
knows it better than the rascals who
made it. Senator Smith, In calling
attention to this break of the ?> apart
ment of Agriculture and its result,
has rendered a distinct public ser
vice. The apology of the Secretary
and the pledge that It shall not occur
again have not remedied the harm
In'lated Crop E-ttimaies.
In regard to cotton the belief is
industriously fos.ereo thai tnere will
be a bumper crop gathered. The
slump in price as the time for harvest
ing the new crop approached indi
cates how this belief has taken hold.
Everywhere, by men wh-> can only
form their opinion by the reports
presented to them, this view is he'd
They are firm in the faith for a bum
per crop will be picked. The latest
government report Issued only a few
days ago, has fortified them in this
belief. They place full confidence in
this report, fet it is absolutely cer
tain that this report is erroneous and
?that all conclusions baser., on it and
like reports are doomed to come to
The prospect for a large cotton
crop was really flattering during the
early part of the season. A bumper
crop then seemed by no means im
possible. But the prospect is any
thing but flattering now. The con
dition of cotton has deteriorated
rapidly during the past two weeks.
Since the last government report was
issued greater damage has been done
the growing cotton crop than was ev
er experienced in the same length of
time. One has but to see the cotton
fields in this section to realize how
the crop has suffered. The wilted
leaves and dried-up forms tell the
story of the damage that has been
done so plainly that even the inex
perienced can understand it well.
And the same applies more or less
to every section of the cotton belt It
means that there -will be no bumper
crop. More than that it means that
there will barely be an , average
yield. And this means that those
who pin their faith on the belief of
a bumper crop will awake to find
themselves mistaken. Those who
make investments based on that be
lief will find themselv(3 in a hole.
The present price of cotton is too low
for the largest yield that is now
possible with the condition of cot
ton deteriorated as it is. The above
which we take from the Augusta
Herald describes the situation ex
Wants the Price Fixed.
The prosperity of ali business in
terests in the South depend upon the
farmers of the South getting a reas
onable price for their cotton. It is
within the power of the cotton pro
ducer to get a reasonable price for
his cotton this season, as we have
pointed out before, if he will feed
the market and not glut it. As will
be seen by an article which we pub
lish in this issue fron the Atlanta
Constitution Mr. John Bostwick, of
Bostwick, Ga., one of Georgia's best
known farmers, presents a plan
through the observance of which he
is confident that the *'armers would
receive at least tweh e and a half
cents a pound for this years crop.
The price is reasonable from j
whatever standpoint viewed, and
there is no reason why the producer
should not get every cent of it for
every pound of cotton soldL the At
lanta Constitution says. The crop
Mr. Bostwick points out, was made j
on the basis of a selling price of
twelve-and a half cents; the spin-!
ners took last years crop at an aver
age of fourteen cent, and used up
every bale of it; no good reason,!
therefore, exists why they 6hould
not take the present crop at twelve
and a half cents and make money on
It The minimum price at twelve!
and a half cents agreed upon, there
is no reason why non-union farmers,
merchants and bankers should not
through state conventions, indorse
this action and lend all their influ
ence to maintain this price.
In other words to quote the Con
stitution, put the world on notice
that the South is not raising any
eleven cent cotton, and the warehouse
receipts will carry every farmer who
needs it until such a time as the mar
ket will give him the price fixed as
a minimum. Mr. Bostwick says if
the farmer hopes to get fair and
reasonable price for his product, he
must not glut the market with it in
the early months of the harvesting
soason, when as experience has too
well shown, heavy selling is the pri
mary cause of beating down the mar
ket below a living figure^ There is
only one plan by which the farmer
may save himself, and that is to
watch the market, sell when it is
right, and hold back when it is de
pressed by heavy receipts of other
causes. This is just what Mr. Bost
wick's plan contemplates, only he
urges that It be done, insofar as pos
sible, through organized effort,
which is of course, the most effective
method. If cotton producers will
agree upon 12 1-2 cents as a mini
mum price and stick to it, they will
?get it, and that, too, comparatively
early in the coming season.
