It is becoming more and more evi
dent every day that the Wall street
speculators are exerting every effort
to depress the price of cotton, hoping
to take advantage of the necessities
of the farmers until the crop has
been marketed, after which, the spec.
ators, of course, would advance the
From various correspondents
throughout the state we learn that
lhe New York speculators are flood
ing the mails with literature in whieb
they talk of a crop of thirteen and a
half million bales, with eotton selling
before the season is over "at eighl
cents or lower!"
Every man who is even casually fa
miliar with the cotton market knows
hat the demand for cotton is strong
and steady. The consumption is the
greatest in the history of the world,
with every indication that the de
mand will continue unimpaired. Thf
spinners must and will have the cot
No one believes sincerely that th4
present crop will be a large one. Witt
every reasonable allowance made
there is not the slightest chance thal
the present crop will be anythinc

That the crop is short in Texas, ani
in fact in all the territory west o
the Mississippi, is a well establishei
We fully reAlize the difficultie
which the farmers in some section
experience in trying to hold their cot
ton, when they have obligations t<
meet, but it is only by adhering res
olutely to the purpose of the Farm
ers' union and of the Southern Cottol
association not to sacrifice the crol
by hurrying it to market that th,
farmers can proect themselves.
This is emphaieally a time whei
they should be given a;ll the eneour
agement possibla in their effort t<
combat the Wall street speculator
who are trying to force down th
price of cotton. Existing condition~
and future prospects justify goo'
prices for cotton, and it rests wit!
the farmers themselves to say wheti
er they will stand firm and secur
ithe prices to which they are entitle
or be stamrpeded by designing spect
lators who are carrying on a can
paign of depression.
The whole south should unite I
support the farmers in their concerl
ed efforts to get the prices to whic
conditions entitle them.
Their resolution will triumph

The above is so true and so mut
to the point that we give it plat
here with our endorsement. Thel
can be no doubt that this is the tin
above all others that have ever con

short time for them to do it if the:
was united determination and, cott<
was held from the market.
The fact that cotton goods are se.
ing on a basis of 15 cents cotton, ar
no one denies that, should be eviden
strong~ enough to convince the cott
producers that they should have th
price for their cotton and the law
su.pply and demand has absolute
nothing to do with the depression
The Farmers Union of this coun
issues an address to the farmers as
ing then to stand firm and they w
win. If they are not going to do ti
there is very little good in their orga
ization. It has been claimed that t:
farmers could never be held togeth

No other business known to th

adopted by a majority of our farn

ever, has managed to get along son
way and take for his great stap]

The state is divided into ten jukli- t
eial circuits, each with a judge, pro- C
secuting attorney and stenographer. I
The latter official being a necessary
part of the court's machinery, some s
way to provide a substitute for him e
in case of his temporary disability v
should be devised. To do this should a
not be especially difficult or expen- C
sive. The legislature might create
substitute court stenographers, two
of whom would be sufficient to take I
the places of regulars when they are j
ill. Their salaries might be fixed at i
half that of the regulars, and their 4
acceptance should be conditioned on
their agreement to report at any
court in the state when summoned.
We suppose that competent men .
could be found to accept the offices
at $750 a year. With that compen
sation assured, they would have no
trouble in earning fair livings as
tenegraphers by outside work for
private parties. In the event that
their services were required in the
eourts for a time beyond a limit fix
ed by .the act, they should receive ad
ditional compensation. By this plan
the whole eost to the state would be
$1,500 a year, and that loss under the
present system might be caused by
-the postponement of a single court.
