Greenwood, July 26.-The second a
session of the Farmers' union opened
at 9 ' clock last night. President 0.
P. Good"vin called the meeting to or
de: and introduced Hon. G. M. Davis ii
of Atlanta. Ga., state organizer of the c<
Georgia division. Mr. Davis was the I
sole speaker of the evening and spoke h.
for about two hours. He made a w
good, soud. practical talk, and one
that the delegates have talked about
more than that of any other. He
spoke of the harmonious working of
the Georgia union and told of the
magnificent appropriation by the
State of Georgia for agri.ultural dis
trict schools and urged that- South
Carolina take steps along this same
line. He said: "You know every- J1
body says the farmer who won't stick
to the union gets stuck." In regard to
the high price of cotton, he said that F
25-cent cotton would ruin the farm
ing interests of the south. It would
cause the mill people to quit spinning
and all go to producing cotton.
Speaking of politics and the much
mooted question of politics raining

that allows politics, Mr. Davis said:
"'That as the national government has
instituted ticks, so that Farmers' un-L
ion had instituted a strict quaran-, -
tine against politics.'' At the close of
his speech the evening meeting clos
The ferst meeting today was called 4
to order at 9 o'clock. The court house4
was well filled.
Hon. T. T. Wakefild, of Anderson,
president of the Anderson county un- 4
K ion and vice president of the state
division, introduced the following4
resolution as the work oif the commit
tee on the operation in cotton baling, I
handling and marketing. The resolu- 4
tion is as follows:
"We favor a system of uniform
baling of cotton into packages of 244
inches wide by 36 inches long; that I
the cotton be covereed neatly and se
eurely with any servieeable wrap- 4
ping, oar preference being given to
cotton wrapper; that we approve the I
cottou union system of marketing 4
At 11 a. in., National President C.
S. Barrett made an address to the4
geneial public in the court house. He I
stated -among other thi:rgs that he 4
