CROP IS NOT LARGE
TPRICE SAYS THE COTTON YIELD
Says He Thinks that the Cotton Pro
ducers are Guilty of Financial
In a letter to Gov. Colquit, of Tex
as, endorsing Ms call for a meeting
?of the Governor of i:he cotton States
to devise some plan by which the
cotton planters can be saved the
millions of dollars they are losong
by selling their cotton at the pres
ent low prices, Mr. Theodore H.
Price, the great cotton dealer of
New York, offers somevaluable sug
gestions and gives his views on the
cotton situations. The following ex
tras* from Mr. Price's letter will
be read with inteest:
"My work, In connection with the
cotton picking machine, has, for
the past two months, taken me into
.numberless; cotton fields throughout
the State of Texas, and I have had
an opportunity to make a compara
tive study of the crop that few men
have enjoyed. I do not think that
the crop is much in excess ofthat of
last year and I am more and more
impressed with the arduous and un
remitting toil that is required to
I have felt for some time that
the producers of cotton were guilty
-,of financial suicide in their present
competition, as to who would sell
their cotton cheapest, and I there
fore express my sympathy with and
hearty approval of your plau to call
a meeting of the Governors of the
cotton States, with a view of con
sidering the situation.
Under normal . conditions, I be
lieve that the cost of producing cot
ton is 9 cents a pound. And when
?#e- take into consideration the in
vestment and the hazard involved in
the planting and cultivation of cot
ton, to say nothing of the picking, it
is ridiculous that the South should
?eil its cotton without profit, and
at a loss if the grade be below mid
dling, as a great deal of this year's
crop promises to be.
"The question is not a local or
sectional one. It is true that the
price of ctton affects the entire bus
iness structure, and the 18,000,000
of people resident in the cotton
States, but the importance of the
i issue becomes natural in its scope,
-^i^n we remember nearly all our ex
ports ?t cotton constitute nearly our
-whole bgl&r?ce oi trade, and that it
Is wilh Cotton tftftt we pay our debts
to Europe. If the prfcg ?* tne article
is depreciated our debt-laying pow
er is Impaired.
"Although in ?ur?pe and ?mer1
Sca the spinning industry is highly
organized, and in America, at least
cur spinners are the beneficiaries of
an exceedngly high tariff, I think I
am correct in stating that the spin
ners of the world would rather see
cotton selling at a stable than at an
abnormally low-price. It is only be
cause each spinner fears his compet
itor may be able to buy cotton cheap
er, and so produce goods cheaper,
that he procrastinates in securing
his supplies at a time when the cot
ton producers of the South, through
their own fatuity, are daily depre
ciating in value the results of their
painful toll. ;
"One pound of cotton 'produces
on the average five yards of cloth.
An advance of 5 cents a pound in cot
ton therefore means an advance of
less than one cent a yard in the
?cost of cloth. The world requires all
the cotton goods that can be made
from an American crop of 14,000,000
bales. In ten years it will require
the equivalent of 20,000,000 bales
of American cotton, and a cent a
yard, more or less, is a difference
that is not appreciated by the thous
and million consumers of cotton
"On the 'ither hand, 5 cents a
pound on a ? rop of 14,000,000 bales
means $350,100,000 annually to the
South and to the United States. It
means the difference between impov
erishment and prosperity for the
people in this section and It means
a difference of $35 0,000,000 anual^
ly in the basis of our credit abroad.
"While the meeting of the Gover
nors of the Southern States that
you have called Is a step in the right
direction, I fear it will be wthout
effect unless at that meeting some
definte and concrete proposition is
agreed upon that will afford relief
from the present situation. The num
erous agricultural organizations of
the ?South have, in the past, from time
to lime met and passed resolutions
calling upon the farmers to hold
their cotton, but in every instance
the farmers have ignored these reso
lutions and proceeded to sell their
cotton, so that their last state was
worse than the first.
"Their inability to hold their cot
ton was made clear by their disre
gard of the resolutions and those In
terested emphasize the weakness of
the situation as thus expressed. As
a matter of fact, it is impossible for
the farmers of th South to hold
their cotton during the first two or
three months of the season and 50
per cent of the crop always comes in
eight by December 1.
"Practically all the cash and cred
it resources of the Southern States
ere tied up in the planting, culti
vation and picking of cotton, and to
?withhold the crop from the market
when it is ready to be sold would
be to disarrange the entire credit
machinery of this sectiou. If, there
fore, your convention shall only have
?what I may describe as a conversa
tional result, it had, in my opinion,
better not be held.
"It seems to me, however, that
a practical, definite and v^orkable
plan can be formulated at your pro
posed meeting, which, if carefully
worked out, will afford great relief,
fit the cotton world realizes that the
Southern States are seriously bent

CLINTON GLOVER GUILTY.
Convicted of Attempted Assault on
a White Woman.
Clinton Glover, the negro fiend
who attempted to commit an assault
on a highly respected white lady at
St. George on the night of August 15
last, was convicted on Thursday of
the diabolical crime at St. George
and sentenced to be hung by Judge
Devore. The case consumed the en
tire day Thursday in the Court of
General Sessions. The jury, after be
ing out an hour and a half, returned
a verdict of guilty without recom
mendation to mercy at 7 o'clock
The testimony was to the effect
that on the night of August 15 last,
about 10 o'clock, a negro entered the
home of a highly respected white
lady, and attempted an assault upon
her. Several testified they heard the
woman's screams. An examination
of the anm of Clinton Glover, ac
cording to one witness, revealed the
fact that it bore a fresh scar. On
the window sill of a room in the
house in which the assault was at
tempted was found a piece of human
skin. The tracks leading from the
place were measured and the meas
urement tallied with Glover's foot.
Bloodhounds were put on his trail
and he was caught.
The white woman upon whom
Glover attempted the assault is high
ly respected in the community, and
when- the alleged crime was com
mitted, on the night of the 15th of
last August, feeling ran high. The
sheriff had to spirit the accused ne
gro to Charleston for safe keeping.
When he was brought to St. George
for trial Thursday there was no dem
onstration pointing to unlawful pro
cedure. Everybody seemed to ,be
willing to allow the law to take its
course, feeling sure that the prison
er would get his just deserts.
Glover was represented by two col
ored lawyers, Daniel Summers, of
Charleston, and Jacob Moorer, of Or
ange burg. Solicitor Hildebrand was
assisted in the prosecution by the
Hon. Walker S. Utsey, of St. George.
The defence did not put up any wit
ness; the State put up ten, some
white and some colored. Ten jury
men were challenged by the defence
and two by the State. Five were ex
cused. The jury which sat on the
case was composed of representative
men. Attorney Moorer asked the
Court to direct a verdict of not
Clinton Glover had been around St.
George for several months before the
attempted assault was committed. He
was supposed to have been an es
caped convict, and he is said to have
borne an unsavory reputation. One of
the witnesses testified that the negro
had been seen banging about the
premises where the crime was at
tempted all day of August 15.
