THE 7 i L 3 L
WORSE1 THAN FOLLY NOT TO DE.
MAND PROFITABLE PMCES.
Have Been Trying to Find Othex
Fields but Southern States
The following article from a recent
issue of the Manufacturers' Record
should appeal to the southern cottoy
grower and should arouse him to th(
realization of the strategic position
which he holds and creat a new de
termination to demand a fair and jus
return for his labor:
"The Southern states hold wha
may be practically called a wor<
monopoly on cotton, since they pro
duce nearly 80 per cent of the world
output. Nature has given them thi
strategic advantage, and, though Eng
land has vigorously struggled fo
more than three-quarters of a centur;
to find some other place in which t
raise cotton .to make her spit
ners less dependent upon the cotto
states of America, though parliE
ment has been actively moving i
such an.effort for three-quarters of
century, and though the governmer
and the cotton spinners of Englan
have never abandoned this agitiatioi
it is universally recognized that t<
day the South's domination of co
ton production is stronger than ev(
before. In times past we might hai
feared that sources of cotton produ
tion might be found elsewhere, th
other lands could be made compet
tors with the South, but the wel
inforied cotton manufacturer of E
rope realizes just as fully as the pe
ple of this country do that for t
next fifty years at least the South
supremacy in cotton growing has
competition in sight.
''The world knows that it is
pendent upon the South for its si
ply of the raw material with whi
to keep ifn ope-ation the 122,000,0
spindles which are now at work a
to clothe mankind. With such a m<
opoly, fully as great in its far-rea<
ing importanCe as would be that m<
opolv on coal and iron which we he
suggested, with the world's dema
for its cotton increasing more rap
ly than ever in the past,: would it
be the height of business folly--pr
tically business suicide--for this
tion not to demand of the worlc
full and profitable price for its gr
staple? And yet a full price, hig
even than what cotton is command
today. is not w erny means exho:
tant. It is a.tsolutely certain t
the world could take the South's
ton crop at 13 cents a pound
pass it into consumption just as rm
ily when once adjusted to that b
as it did at 6 or 7 or 8 cents a poI
Low prices do not always guarai
consumption., and what we call
p)rice do not always prevent iner
ed consumption. The cotton spmn
of the world became so accusto:
to the starvation prices prevailing
tween 1891 and 1902, when they r:
ed from an average of 6 cents f<
full year, in 1S98-9, to a little
than 9 cents in other years, that s
timnes they seem to have entirely c
looked the fact that there were
two periods of low prices in the
tory of cotton.
''The Manufacturers' Record
lieves the South has come to su
realization of the potentialities

its own strength and of its own
ity to turn from cotton growin

never again will its great staple

states. They have at last com

it \woued be advanced by the euttingt
down of ihe prosperity of the Cotton
grower. On the other har. the cut
ton grower, recognizing that he holds
such a monopoly on one of the world', (
greatest staples, a staple which is a
basis of the largest industrial busi
ness of the world, except iron and
steel, knows that he is entitled not
to a meager profit, but to a profit
commensurate with the advantages
which nature has given to his section
.and to the value of the industry which
lhe creates in the world's betterment. I
Given such a profit as this, the South
b will increase its cotton production as

require, whether these demands shall
reach to 1S.000,000 or 20,000,000 bales
ten years hence, or to 50,000,000 bales
or more, likely to be required during

y European spinners who for 'the first
time propose to study at first hand
and on the spot the cotton growing
and cotton manufacturing potentiali-I
