HOLD COTTON SAYS JORDAN.
President of Southern Cotton Asso
ciation Urges Farmers to
President Harvie Jordan, of the
Southern Cotton Association, has is
sued an address to the farmers of
the south to hold firm and keep their
cotton until the price reaches the
level it should attain. Farmers are
aho urged to hold mass meetings in
their counties and decide upon con
The letter is as follows:
"Headquarters Southern Cotton
Association, Atlanta. Ga.. November
27, 1907.-In the face of the present
monetary stringency and the stren
uous efforts of bearish manipulation
to depress prices for spot cotton, the
cotton growers all over the south are
standing firm, in their heroic purpose
to maintain the market and prevent
the anticipated panic of rush sales,
so confidently hoped for from certain
speculative sources. The records
show that the crop has moved free
ly, until quite recently, and the
year's obligations, due by the far
mers, largely liquidated. Every
banker, merchant and business inter
.est in the- south should now give ev
ery possible aid to the growers in the
present lolding movement, until the
price of spot cotton reaches the high
level it should attain, and force the
payment of its full intrinsic value.
"The recent census ginners' re
port does not indicates a crop in ex
cess of 11,000,000 bales, due to the
very short yield in the southwest.
"Production in for.eign countries
is reported at least 2,000,000 bales
short as compared with last year.
Exports of American cotton exceed
ed 9,000,000 bales in the last twelve
months, and the demand continues
"The money stringency is fast be
ing relieved and the business will
soon assume its normal level. Se1l
no cotton that can be financed, or
held. at present prices. The future
strength of the cotton groming in
terests of the south depends upon
winning the victory in the present
struggle. Let every man in the south
do liis fii iauty and the reward will
be sure - ,wift in the realization
of higher prices.
"Farmers, merchants, bankers and
business interests generally favorable
to the holding movement should hold
mass meetings at once in their res
ptive counties or parishes and de
termnine upon a concentrated effort
and an effective cooperation.

When at the fall of the Palma
Government in Cuba the United
States was compelled to intervene,
the taking of a census was recognized
not only as a desirable or even neces
sary measure precedent to the estab
lishment of political order. but also
as a convenient and plausible excuse
for post.ponin'g the withdrawal of our
This latter aspect of the matter'
need not be bliniked, because it does
not imply any wish or intent to keep
that control longer than is absolute
ly necessary to the restoration or
rather the establishment of political
peace and social order on grounds
reasona'bly promising permanence.
~The census, howvever, is now com
te, and there is a demand .among
~an leaders of the aggressive type

al and national elections based on
Unhappily, if surface indications
may be credited and some well-in
formed opinion relied upon, condi
tions are still far from promising.
The chief disturbing element is still
potent. That is. the so-called Liberal
party is still divided by the rival am
bitions of (Gomez, who was the Lib
eral candidaite against Palma and is
very popular with the masses, and
of Alfredo Zayas. president of the
party. The potentialities of disor
der in thi rivalry seem about as
great as ever.
Then there is an Independenit par
y, whose leader is Gen. Mario Men
cal. and which is blessed-or curs
-with several aspirants to be
esient of the Republic.
The fourth party is the Moderate
Pa'ma party, which up -to this time
soffered no candidate and, rep
eting the more conservative and
ensible of the Cubans. probably
ers American occupation for an
fin jerio to the azardls of
popular government in the present
stage of political intelligence.
Indeed, Mr. Palma, according to
Collier's Weekly, has recently per
mitted the publication of a letter in
which he discusses the circumstances
leading to the American in.terven
tioa, and does not hesitate to say
of his party thai. "the final aim of
our noble and patriotic aspirations
was not independence, but a stable
government, capable of protesting
the lives and properties and of guar
anteeing the rights of all inhabitants
of Cuba, natives and foreigners
alike, and capable also to preven+t. li
berty being polluted by anarchial
armed disturbances.'' He feels that
their action has been justified by
"the sudden re-establishment of
peace through the moral and material
influence of the Americans," and
deselares that it is "a hundred times
better for our beloved Cuba to be in
a dependent political situation in
which liberty is prevailing than a re
public independent of a sovereign,
but "discredited and ruined by blast
ing periodical civil strifes."
It is evident from this very frank
statement that what is probably on
the whole the most intelligent class
of the Cuban people is thoroughly
distrustful of the Republican experi
menit in Cuba and desires the aid of
a strong hand in the maintenance of
orderly progress toward civilized in
The situation is painful indeed to
all Americans who realize the re
sponsibilities and dangers of our Cu
ban relations. Retreat from them is
impossible on both political and ethi
cal groundds. All we. can hope for
now is that the fears of Palma are
either disingenuous or exaggerated,
and that the situation will clarify
sooner than seems likely.

e.tirely disabled with hemorrihages

in three weeks I was able to go to
