THE COTTON SITUATION.
The Bankers and Merchants Asked
to Come to Rescue of the Farmers
'The eotton 'and the deeline -it.:has
made in the last. thirty .days has in
terested the kianter here more than
usu~ni,'and especially after the price
had been fixed at 15 cents and the
crop off 25 per cent from August 1,
1907. One great trouble just now aq
to the farmer holding cotton is, that
it was spent before he began to piek
it. and as long as such is the case, it
will be a hard matter to band anN
of us together to keep cotton off the
market. In a ease of this kind the
only remedy is this: The lien mer
chant and the banker must come to
the assistance of the class of farmers
mentioned. instead of saying to them.
'-sell your cotton. it is a pretty good
price. and pay your ien off or b9nk
note, and if you need any help again
next season, why I will carry you
Now, wouldn't it be just as easy for
the lien merchant or banker to take
that class of farmers' cotton, put-it
in bonded warehouses, takei said
-bonded receipt as additional security,
renew that class of farmers' paper,
not for thirty days but for ninety
days, or longer if necessary, then the
cotton situation.would change and the
matter would be solved as to the
holding movement instituted by the
We all know there are two classes
of farmers; one class that can arrange
and hold their cotton off the market,
and there is a class that can't do it
without the assistance of the supply
man and the banker, and as good
eyes as they claim to have to good
sound business methods, they ought
to see that the more that class of
farmer gets for his product for sale,
the more money it puts in circula
tion, and the.more-money you put in
circulation, the more prosperous the
I have for the past ten years watch
ed the cotton situation pretty close,
being a cotton grower myself, and I
find that about as mreh cotton from
a half crop is put on the market from
September 15th to December 1st as
from a full crop, and that nine-tenths
of the paper made is made to come
due. about ..ths same period and thai
has its weight (and a wonderfully
sti'6n% one too) against the price fixed
b; the cotton association. To realize
what we ought for the present erop
of cotton, which has cost more than
any crop in ten yea'rs, which esven the
lien merchants will bear me out in
*my assertion, we will have to have
the assistance of the bankers and the
lien 'nerchants. Not by talk either,
but by action. Banker and' supply
merchant, come to the assistance of
the farmer and help him to advance
the price of cotton and let him reap
*the profit ! at he justly deserv'es, and
wLa he has won by the sweat of his
brow, and 'you will then see the rural
districts build up and bloom with
h-widsome homes, .high schools, elee
trie railways, macadamized public
roads and handsome,e hurches.
