THE SOUTH CAROLINA
The state council of the Farmers'
Educarional and cooperative union of
South Carolina, at .the meeting held in
Anderson last week, decided to make
known to the public at large the foli
iowing main dbjects of its mission in
First. To teach our farmers how to
produce proficable crops.
Second. How best to market our
products so as to turn the profits of
our produce into -the 'han-ds of the
producers, instead of allowing the
non producers to reap these benefits.
To the Press of the State.
We believe that it will be to the
mutual interest of the Farmers' union
and the press of the country for the
Farmers' union to use and advocate its
cause and principles through all escab
lished newspapers of the country with
out preference so long as the present
friendly and cordial relations between
the Farmers' union and the press of
the state prevails.
To the Farmers of South Carolina.
We bplieve that the farmers of the
state appreciate, the fact that the far
mers shold have an organization of
their own composed exclusively of
We believe that no other occupa
tion that has .an organization of its
own can consistently object to farm
ers having an organization of its own,
composed entirely of farmers.
The Farmers' union proposes to at
tend to its o\wn farming business, in
its own way without making any at
tempt at pulling down other legiti
mate occupations, or business in or
der to build up our farming interest.
In order to fortify our position in
demanding profitable prices for our
money crop, cotton, and enforcing the
same, the Farmers' union urges its
miembers and all other farmers of the
cotton belt to raise all home supplies
on their farms that will grow the,re
Our Farmers' union discourages the
system of buying many supplies (that
could be grown on odr southern
farms) at high rates for the purpose
of growing the one -crop, cotton,
which invariably cau~ses our -cotton to
'be sold at force sales to pay for sup
plies obtained at high rates.
Our -Relations With the Southern
Why 'there should not be any fric
tion between -their members?
.Because we have the same interest
at stake as to profitable .prices to the
produer's of cotton!
Because we should be liberal
enough towards each other to permit
each organization to attain its objects
in its own way!
Bec:...mse we feel it a duty we owe
each'other to stand together!
- ' Because every, interest of the south
is staked upon a profitalble price to
the producer of our great staple crop,
Because the Farmers' union is
strictly a farmers organization!
Because all. other interests have
their, separate and dis-tinct organiza
tions, and the cotton association is an
.amalgamated, or coherent organiza
tion, where all interest in the cotton
belt can come together in grand con
ference for the welfare of our com
mon interest, whic-h anchors -around
profitable prices -to 'the producers of
Because we all live here together in
the southland. where cotton is king!
Because when foreign interests
combine to reduce profits to the pro
ducer of cotton, and succeed in doing
it. every dollar thus forced out of the
producers hands t=hat goes to Ioreignl
interests, is just so nmany dollars ta
ken out of the sourh. which will soon
er or later be felt in every vein and
arterv 01 our whole system of indus
tries and trades, whose pulsations are
sent forth from one heart which is
imbedded upon the fleecy staple cot
Because it is the right thing to
teach all of our men and wvomen that
there is something better in the land
