MR. SMITH FAMED TO COME.
Newberry County Cotton Grower's
NewberrY Coulty (.otton (ower's
a1'ocIa had annnneed through
is )resi<lent. 3ir. 1. T. C. Hunter that
Mr. E. D. Smith. president of the
State Cotton Gower's association.
would be in Newberry yesterday and
deliver an address. About two hun
dred or more of farmers came to New
berry for the purpose of hearing Mr.
Smith. Mr. Smith did not come. He
i it not 4end any message as to why
he did not appear. The meeting was
not call to order until about 1 o'clock
hopinz that Mr. Smith would come on
one or the other of the midday trains.
President Hunter tried to reach some
body connected with his office in Co
lumbia, but failed. Mr. Fred Long,
who was at Edgefield last week where
Mr. Smith spoke. stated that Mr.
Smith told him that he would be here
yesterday. That is the last messa-ge
which has been received from Mr.
This is about the third time that
Mr. Smith has disappointed the New
berry farmers. Mr. Hunter pomised
the meeting yesterday thwtAie would
endeavor to get some explanation
from Mr. Smith f- eing his failure
to be here yesterday and that he
wouIld publid the reasons in the
the county papers, or failing to secure
any reasns, would advise the farmers
It/ as a great disappointment, for
areat many of the farmers left their

Mr. Smith. Despite the fact that Mr.
Smith was absent, however, there was
a good meeting and it will no doubt.
result in the reorganization and the
revivitying of the Newberry County
Cotton Grower's association.
Mr. Hunter, in calling th. meeting
to order, stated that even though some1
of the farmers were put out because
of Mr. Smith's failure to come, and
even though Mr. -Smith probably has
not treated the farmers of this coun
ty as they deserve .to be, that was no
reason for condemning the cotton as
In this day everything is in a com
bine, and if the farmers fail to meet
combination with combination they
may expect to be at the mercy of t.he
great combine of the country. The far
mers cannot expect to' make money
or even to exist until they do combine
in order to meet combination with
combination. Not for the purpose of
fighting any one, but if any one gets
in the way and is hurt, is it simply
Mr Hunter stated that we had prae
tically~ no organization in this coun-f
tv. The election of officers should
have been in December, but though
he tried very hard only two persons
came. The farmers in the Cotton
Grower's Association can do a great
deal of good -in maintaining the price
of cotton and there is no conflict be
tween the Cotton Grower's Associa
tion and the Farmers' Union. We
know that we cannot make money
with cotton at 4 cents and even at 10
cents, with the present price of la
bor. there is no money in growing cot
ton, but it makes no difference as to
t'he price, the farmers should have
ome say a's to what that should be.
There is no sense in making cotton
and taking less for it than it cost to
make it. It woulld be better to make
no cotton, for we can live in this
country without growing cotton.
In the Cotton Grower's Association
every citizen of the south is entitled
to membership if 'he feels an interest
in the prosperity of this section. Mr.
Hunter also said there seemed to be
some mistake about the cotton asso
eation going into the banking busi
ness. It was not the purpose of the
cotton associatiort t-o engage in bank
ing. It was their purpose to estab
lish cotton warehouses and to secure
from the banks now in existence
money on receipts issued by these
warehouses. Mr. Hunter expressed a
desire that a cotton association sh6uld
Mr. Alan Johnstone stated that 1Mr
Hunter was still the president and
would remain so until his suceessor
was elected: ,he felt that the associa
tion in this county should be reorgan
ized. Those who belonged to the Far
mers' Union felt that that organiza
tion would grow, but there are certain
reasons why it cannot take in all of
the people and the cotton association
can take in every man in the south,
and it puts us in touch with other in
terests. He was gratified at the in
terest manifested by the business men
of Newberry. When they were asked
to close their stores on yesterday in
':rde1 that they might hear the speech
of Mr. Smith, 'all the business men
areed readily to close up. Every in
terest recognized the fact that better
rce cotton meant greater prosperity
for the south. Therefore this organ-'
izan shul not fall still-born. Mr.
Johnstone believes there was some
reason beyond the control of Mr.
Smith of his failure to appear yes- Bl
terday. In i:is absence the organiza
tion should not fall through. there
fore. lie moved that the present offi
eers be reelecied. Mlr. Hunter said
ti 11Che was a pliin-spoken nn and K
ould not g-et his consent to serve th
a,aiii unless he was assured of the S
hearty co-operation of the other offi- T
eers, and he felt that it would be bet- thi
ter to have a new set of officers. The
truth of the matter is, during the past da
year Mr. Hunter has worked very -
hard and has had very little co-opera- i
tion and has really been the cotton M
association of Newberry county. Sev
?ral other nominations were made for p
president and they all declined. A
committee composed of W. H. Miller.
W. B. Counts, N. H. Young and J. A.
C. Kibler was then appointed to nom
inate officers They reported the fol
lowing, who were unanimously elect
ed: R. T. C. Hunter, president; W. C.
Brown, vice-president; G. F. Long, 01
seretary; Alan Johnstone, treasurer. or
Mr. Hunter stated that inasmuch th
as the committee had seen proper to
place his for nomination, he would pa
not deeline, but he accepted on the
condition that he would have the is
hearty co-operation and support of
the orfianization. He announced that 14
he would name the executive commit- lic
tee later. P9
Mr. J. A. Sligh said that he felt he
hould state that the nominations met Le
his hearty approval; Mr. Hunter was
the man for the position and he knew In
that Mr. Hunter had worked hard to
keep up the organization, and h# be- L
lieved that he would continue to work fo
for the organization, and he hoped
that he would secure an executive bo
committee that would assist him in p,
his work. Dr. McIntosh stated that stl
there was another question of vital on
importance, in fact as Vital as that of on
marketing and selling the cotton, and L(
that was ,the effect of the decision of T(
Judge Brawley in regard to labor con- Li
tracts. He understood that an appeal In
had been taken to the supreme court Si
of the United States from the decis
ion of Judge Brawley, and he moved ,t
that he president of the association f<O
get in communication with similar or- e
ganization in other counties and ascer
tain if they could be of any assistance he
in furthering this appeal. This mo- k
tion met with the hearty approval of .to
the meeting and the resolution was A
adopted. - s
Mr. Sligh wanted to know what the
status ~of the ease at present is. In
othed words whether an a'ppeal,would
stay the effect of Judge Brawley's de- e
ision, and if the law could be en
fored as it had been until the final fa
determination of the case by. the su- i
preme court of the United States. Mr.
Alan Johnstone stated that he had
consulted good legal authority and
that opini,in was, that the contract
law. stood until the final determina
tion by the supreme court. The meet
