FUNDS POURING IN.
Appeal of South Carolina Cotton As
sociation Has Met With
The appeal of the South Carolina
Cotton association, says the Colum
bia State, has met with prompt re
sponses, and checks are now coming
into the office of the treasurer, Mr.
F. H. Hyatt. "You can't run an or
ganization on wind," said Mr. Hyatt
yesterday. So after a consultation
with Mr. E. D. Smith and Mr. F. H.
Weston he wired a great many of the
cotton seed oil mills and textile mills
in the state. It was 6 o'clock in the
afternoon before the telegraph office
had concluded sending off the mes
sages and even before the last had
been sent the responses began to ar
rive. Following are some of the ans

you."-Lewis W. Parker.

amount asked for. Press the good
work."-G. F. Parrott, manager of
the Lee county Manufacturing com

In addition to these were several

when the messages were received, but
that the appeal of the Cotton Grow

This may appear impossible at first

FROM EVERY COTTON STATE.
Have Come Enthusiastic Reports of
Conventions Held Last
Atlanta, Ga., February 27.-From
every cotton growing state in the
south have come the most enthusias
tic reports of the conventions which
were held in the state capitals last
Every convention was attended by
hundreds of farmers, bankers, law
yers, merchants and. other business
men, and it was agreed everywhere
that the salvation of the south de
pended largely upon the reduction of
the cotton acreage 25 per cent. from
last year and the holding of the cot
ton now on hand as far as practica

Representative men in each state
and territory were chosen to head
the state divisions of the Southern
Cotton asociation. Politics played no
part in the selection of these officers,
as the constitution of the Southern
Cotton association is very strict on
this subject, providing expressly that
no officeholder in any state can hold
a position in any state organization
or in the southern organization.
Ringing Resolutions Adopted.
Ringing resolutions were adopted
in each state and territory in which.
the Southern Cotton association,
which was formed at New Orleans
in January, was heartily endorsed,
and the plans formulated by that con
vention lere adopted.
Prominent men attended each con
vention. They came from all sec
tions of their respective states, show
ing clearly how the people are in
terested in the fight the farmers of
:he south are making for the proper
price for the world's greatest staple.
Texas agreed to reduce the acreage
25 per cent.; so did Arkansas, Geor
gia, Alabama, Tennessee, North and
South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississip
pi, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Indian
It looks now as if the mavement has
succeeded and as President Harvie
Jordan announced some time ago,
"victory is in sight." It is the first
time in the history of the south that
the cotton producers, the bankers,
~the merchants, lawyers, doctors, and
every other interest combined to help
get the proper price for cotton, and
such a combination will be hard to
Organizations are being perfected
in every militia district in the south
ern states. Organizations are already
perfected in the counties, parishes
and the states. And from all reports
these organizations have come to
.Thousands Sign Pledges.
Thousands of pledges have been
sent in - to President Jordan, and he
is now returning them to the secre
taries of the various state organiza
tilons. They came to President Jor
dan before the state divisions wvere
organized. It is very igratifying to
Mr. Jordan and his associates to
know how the people are rallying to
the support of the great movement,
and with the reduction in acreage
which is now bound to be an actual
fact, for not only the pledges assure
it but weather conditions too, the
price next fall is sure to be ten cents.
Mr. Jordan states that all county
and parish organizations should now
communicate direct with the state
secretar.ies elected at the meeting in
the various staes last Tuesday. These
secretaries will report to the gener
al headquarters of the Southern Cot
ton association at Monticello.
R. G. Trefzer, the jewler of Union,
