GAMBLER AND GROWER-WHICH
Speaking about brazen robbery:
Spot cotton declined 30 points, or
$1.66 a bale, in New York on Mon
xay-or about twenty-one and a half
million dollars on a crop of 13,000,
What was the reason given?
"Because the equinoetial storm
did not do much damage!" That
comes pretty near being the limit of
According to the logic of this ex
euse, for the two weeks preceding the
autumnal equinox, the price of cot
ton should have advanced, in antici
pation of the dreaded storm. But in
stead of advancing, the speculators
steadily and consistently depressed <
cotton during that period. They fore
ed down the market price about $6.50
The day before the equinox, when
storm signals were displayed along
the gulf coast, what happened in New
York? By every rule of argument
and consistency cotton should have
advanced; but it went down five I
points. And on Monday, when .the
storm passed without damag, the
depression was 30 points more.
That is a fair sample of the meth
od of dealings in New York. There
was as much need for raw cotton on
Monday as on Saturday. All that
there is will not be sufficient to meet
the world's demands. The mills
throughout the world are running on
full time; there is an assured market
for every yard of cloth that is woven.
Yet, because much cotton was not
destroyed, the speculators use that as
a pretext to hammer the price still
That method is little better than
highway robbery; the only difference
is that the farmers have not got to
stand and deliver. If all of them will
h Aave the nerve to quietly sit and wait
for 20. days they will see cotton elimb
back about $8 a bale.
But to accomplish that great result
the growers must stand together,
from one end of the eatton belt to
the other. And merehants and' a
bankers, and business men generally, t
should dissuade thie small farmer ]
h.. from turning loose his little crop; I
and, if possible, help him to hold it <
for a short while. Every bale market- t
ed now weakens the south. This is the a
crucial test; the next few weeks will I
deftermine :whether the gambler or
the grower shall win.-The State. It
The aboye is the li.ne taken by The (
Herald and News some ten days a,o 1
and we take pleasure in copying it ~
in this connection and in endorsing ~
the position of the State.
As we stated in a former issue of l1
.The Herald and News, we are glad I
to see the papers like the Columbia
State and the Atlanta Journal taking :~
'the positidn which is taken in the j
above in regard to the fight which t
is now on between the cotton grower
and the money center. As we see it,j S
there is absolutely no reason for the:
decline in the price of cotton ex
s-- eept that it is an effort of the gamblers d
in the great staple product of the t,
southern farmer to whip him in 'the r
fight, whieh he has been makig e
through the two organizations of the s
farmers for a living price for his
We would be glad to see not a bale a
of cotton put on the market for twen- r
ty days, and we believe that the State is
-s correct when it says that if this* t:
were done, "cotton would climb g
back $8 a bale.'' In order to accom- s
* plish this, however, it is absolutely a
necessary that1the farmers should e
stand together. They have the key r
to the situation, but it requires united v
effort. We are very anxious thatIthey ti
-- should win in this fight. e
The state colleges are full. That is c
rwell, but thiere is nothing remark- o
able about it. If there were free gro- ti
cery stores or free dry goods stores tl
open they would be full also. The ti
state sannot possibly accommodate e
everybody who wants a good thing.- s,
Newberry Observer. ji
tYet many people seem to think that fi
t,aetroubled about so many being C
turned away and demand that ac-p
commnodation be. made for all which h
would mean drawing away the pat- li
ronage of other colleges. It is a b
great mistake to suppose that the l'
applicants who are turned away are a
denied an education. They simply go j
to other colleges, where they get as t
satisfaction of knowing that nobody
was taxed to pay for it.-Chester
The tuition amounts to a very small
matter in any of our colleges. In
view of the very small number of
those who attend our state schools
being able to pay the tuition we have
%bout come to the conclusion that it
would be best to abolish tuition char
,es and at the same time abolish
all scholarships. Say to the young
nan who desired to attend the state
chool, here it is, we furnish you the
;chool and the tuition but you must
10 the rest.
These free scholarships and this
Farce at charging tuition, both, are
esulting in too many parents certi
ying to what is not true in order to
,ave a few dollars. And what about
-he influence on the boy who knows
,hat his parent has saved the small
imount of tuition by false statement.
The same is true to large extent at
The free tuition in the state col
eges has no effect on the denomina
;ional schools. We once thought it
lid but when Winthrop and Clemson
vere established the demoninational
tnd private colleges had more pupils
;han before. There is an awakening
or higher education but it should not
>e given free.

MILLINERY OPENINGS. i
The Several Establishments Vie With
One Another L Generous Rival- n
ry-Many Pretty Crtions. M
The usual opening, which is held t
semi-annually by the several millinery :
establishments in Newberry, took i;
place yesterday. Everything seemed
to conspire to make it one of the o
most delightful openings in the his- -
tory of these opening days in New- s
berry. During the night of Wednes
day the weather turned cooler and ,
yesterday morning a good, fresh v
northeast wind was blowing, and
everything had the appeairanc4 of r
fall, which, of course, made the. la- c
dies more interested in looking at the
different styles and patterns of fall y
and wintr hatis than they would ,
have been if the hot weather of the t
past several days had continued. The
several establishments in Newberry n
all vied with one another in making R
the most elaborate and beautiful dis
play. This reporter of course would e
not undertake to make comparisons.
They are Always odious and would be
especially so if he undertook to com- F
pare the display of one establishments
with that of another. Suffice -it to is
say that they all were uu to date and d
the several ladies in charge were
busy showing their latest creations in a
millinery apparel and the seeker and w
purchaser of a fall hat may easily li
