Columbia, S. C., Sept. 19.-Larp
and enthusiastic were the crowds wb
welcomed William Jennings Bryai
the great democrat, the great commoi
er here today. Prominent citizer
from all over the state were, preset
to greet the man whose pronounce
views against corporation oppressioi
against high tariff, and against tI
"big dogs'' of the republican go,
ernment-have made him a de'nocr
tic leader, a leader of the people.
Mr. Bryan's reception in Coltumbi
-the hot bed of secession and
democracy was heralded by a commi

A large throng had gathered at tl
University camnius and was eager]
awaiting the great Nebraskan. A

the vociferous cheers of the crowd.
The address of weleome on beha
of the city of Columbia was deliverc
by Hon. John A. Wills, whose spee(

freely commented upon. Gov. Di

When Mr. Bryan arose to speak
was some minutes before the cheerir
ceased, and when he finally got ti
ears of his audience, it was evidei
from the beginning that he would hai
the rapt attention of his hearers.
He has a peculiar faculty of beir
''easy'' with a joke, and interspe
sed with his masterly address wei
many sparkles of laughter, which we
illustrated his points.
He spoke of the fact that lie ho
to have two sets of speeches alwa
ready, one for a mixed audience ai
one for a democratic audience.
After getting his hearers in a be
ter humor-they were already in
good humor-lie took up the tarij
question as advocated by the Repul
He showed the great defects in hi
speech of Secretary Shawv, who cdais
ed the great money-loving powers<
the present tariff to this country.
Mr. Bryani said lie had been a stut
ent of the tariff question for twent;
six years, and proved by the one argi
ment of the Republicans that tI
tariff should be reformed.
Next lie wvent into a masterly argi
ment to show that the present lead
en of the Republican forces-Theddol
Rjoosevelt-had taken the veritab
planks of the Democratic party at
was acting on them.
The railroad rate bill, the arbitr
tion of strikes and many others, I
'said are planks taken directely fro:
the Chicago platform of 1S96.'
It came in the nature of a compi
ment, he said, but the opposing parn
should use all of the planks. M
Bryan was terribly in. earnest and h
hearers were affected by it-he meat
every word lhe said.
The Republican party have but or
man who can be elected in 1908-ani
the man is popular because he he
advocated democraic principl'es..
Speaking further he told of ral
roads and railroad domination. He ha
been accused of 'bursting the party
because he said in New York his poi
son al views upon this great question
and he was soundly and loudly al
plauded when hie saila that lie ha
rather be free to express his indivi
dual opinion, giving ear to the opit
on of others with equal respet-that
e be president.
o The railroads dominate the country
i, they control legislation-and shouli
k. be under supervision of the govern.
it He believed that the state shouk
d control them, -while the national gov
l, ernment should 9wn and control v
Le few trunk lines.
. The corporations .control the gov
i ernment now and it is better to hav<
it under the direct. supervision of the
a government than haxe it under thi
if control of the railroad.
t Mr. Bryan is a great man-'-this is
, conceded and no private citizen with
o in the )ast decade has been accorde<
o so great a respect, so great a re
gard as he.

TEN, ENTS FOx COTTON.
It is Worth That Much and Sh6ald
Not be Sold for Less-Why Cot
ton Should be Worth Ten
Cents the Pound this
Year. . rF
Tothe Editor of The News and Cou
rier: The agony is over.- Ansel, Lyon
and Sulivan have .been elected by
handsome majorities. Let us hope and
- pray that the state is in safe hands,
that the grafters will get their just
deserts and that the railroads will be
made to respect the rights of the pub
lie. Now let us turn our thoughts from
the melee of politics and from the per
-plexing whiskey problem to the cot
ton situation and to the Southern Cot
ton Association and its efforts to se
cure and maintain fair and remunera
- tive prices for its staple. Allow me to
thank you for your friendly notices of
the Association. I am also glad to
note that you have the name, ''South
ern Cotton Association,'' correct, and
that your paper understands all that
is implied and embraced under that
comprehensive name. Your paragraph
er says: "Every farmer and business
man in the State should vote a small
appropriation out of - his pocket for
the support of the Southern Cotton
Association before he forgets how to
vote." Good for the paragrapherl
The Southern Cotton Association is
composed of the farmers and the busi
ness men of the South. (We have your
name, Mr. Editor, enrolled , as an
honorary member of the Orangeburg
Cotton Association.) It stands for
good prices for our great money crop
and hence for the financial prosper
ity of the South. True, it has made
mistakes. Who has not made mis
takes? It is human to err. Let us not
condemn too harshly, but rather let us
hope and believe that the Southern
Cotton Association will profit by its
mistakes. It is worthy of ou support.
It stands like a stone wall between the
farmer on the one hand and the con
sumer, the speculator and the gamblvr
on the other. The Southern Cotton
Association is opposed to violent
fluctuations in the price of cotton, as
injurious both to the producer and the
consumer. Before the advent of the
Southern Cotton Association I have
seen cotton fluctuate from 5 cents to
17 cents, bankrupting and demoraliz
ing farmers and merchants, and up
setting trade relations and all Che
calculations of the spinner. TTI
Southern Cotton Association is a pow
er to be reckoned with and tends to
steady prices, as witness the price of
cotton for the past two years. 1). M.
Van Vliet says: "The bumper crop
was sold at an average of 9 1-4 cents,
and the last crop at 11 1-4-cents, and
consumptive demands are much lar
ger now than the former year and
equally as good if not better than
i last year." That means that about
twenty-five million bales of Ameri
,en cotton have been sold the past
twvo years at'an average price of 10
1-4 cents per pound.
The Southern Cotton Association,
through its executive committee, made
'up of delegates duly elected from each
of the cotton producing States andh
Territories, lhas fixed upon 10 cents
as a minimum price for this crop.
- There conservatism won a victory. All
things considered I believe 11 cents
I would be but a fair price to the pro
ducer; but our farmers are not yet
educated to an appreciation of the
true value of the great staple which
at 11 and 12 cents per pound would
furnish the cheapest clothing known
to the world; hence I advocated the
adoption of the 10 cents minimum.
I contend that 10 cents per pound is
very reasonable, very moderate, very
Letus ookinto the situation a lit
tIe closer. This has been an expensive
crop. The rainfall has been excessive
1and continuous, increasing the cost of
cultivation, and at the same time de
ttimental to the erop. Very high pric
es have been paid for mules, wagons,
ploughs, mowing machines, all planta
tion supplies, including fertilizers and
labor is seorace and growing dearer
everydaytioif crop-In both the Car
olinne, in Georgia, in Florida the crop
it .a n to be short. In the West,
IwhLre a large arid vig'orous weed (of
ten deceptive to the eye) gave prom
kise of a big crop, it is admitted that
serious deterioration has taken place
in the crop and that the detorioration
continues. In a wet season men are
prone to overstimate a cotton crop; in
a dry season to anderstimate it.
Among cotton men this is almost an
-axiom. Look at the world. Universal
peace prevails. Prosperity is unpre
cedented, in mining, manufactures, in
textiles, especially in wool, in silk, in
cotton. Study these- suggestive fig
ures taken from the Commercial aid
F4"inancial Chronicle's careful and
comprehensive statement of the pre
vious season's cotton crop. ''The
world's production of cotton in bales
of tile uniform Weight. of 500 plouiids
is sliown in the following table:
United States........ ....11,048,000
East [indies ............3,970,000
Brazil and others.. .. ..... 650,000
Total for world .. ....15,820,000
Consumption 52 weeks ..16,395,228
The )above shows that the consmlip
tion for the world for 1905-06 exceed
ed the total pr-oduction of the world
by 575,228 bales of cotton.
Again I quote from the Commercial
and Financial Chronicle:
The world's total consumptionl for
1905-06 records an appreciable gain
over the total reached a year ago, 853,
561, and is 2,085,070 bales more than
the result for 1903-04.

Coitinent furnished us by Mr. Ellison,
who states that in addition to the to

Now, Mr. Editor, in view of the
facts renehed above, witha in increase
of 5,000,000 new up to date spindles,
hungry for the fleecy staple, is not
cotton cheap at ten cents? The honest
spinner says ''yes. '' The middle man
and the speculator who is short says
"n1.'' It is fi:ietly up to the farmer,
who has the hacking of merchant. and
banker, to demand and accept noth
ing less than ten cents for his cotton.
