COTTON REPORT ISSUED. hi
Increased Demand for Upland Cot- I
ton Has Resulted in the Devel- tI
opment of Better Grades. a
Washington, June 18.-Daniel C. ir
Roper, of the United States census di
bureau. has just prepared a compre- w
hensive report on the cotton industry po
in the United States last year. si
In reference to the cultivation of al
sea island cotton this reports says:
The cultivation of sea island cotton
in the United States at the present ii
time, as shown by returns of ginners, r
is confined to 17 counties in Florida, S'
26 in Georgia, and 4 in South Caro
lina, or a total of 47 counties. It is A
not grown, however, throughout the A
counties from which it is return'ed. A
The. area given to this culture in B
1899, as returned at the 1900 census, B
and which -has probably not changed B
materially, was 317,445 acres, B
distributed as follows: Georgia C.
170,756: Florida. 122,787. and C1
South Carolina, 23,902. Experiments C1
have been made in many other parts C1
of these States. and in other States, C!
to grow this cotton but so unsatisfae- Cl
tory have been the results that all ef- C<
forts to grow it outside of certain D
well-defined areas in the States named D
have been abandoned. Farmers who E
grow sea island cotton in the interior F,
secure new seed frequently from the F]
coast regions in order to preserve its G<
identity, as the fiber degenerates rap- Gi
idly into that of upland cotton. The Gi
distribution of sea island cotton by H
counties for the last five years will be H
found in table 15, and the localities K
producing it are represented on map L
1, page 24. L
Demand Brings Improvement.
Tli increased demand in refent
years for superior staples is develop
ing better varieties of upland cotton
by seed selection and more careful
cultivation. Th!e United States de
partment of agriculture has been and
is now rendering very valuable se:
vice in assisiing the growers along
these lines. The long staples grown
chieflv in the portion of the Missis
sippi Valley. which extends from
Vicksburg to Memphis. a region about
57 miles wide and 200 miles long, are
receiving more attention than hereto
fore. The fiber of much of the cotton
grown in this territory measures from
one and one-fourth to one and seven
eighth inches in length, and the av- F
erage yield is about one bale to the
aere. The seeds of these fancy varie
ties have been planted in localities C
outside of this region the dlast two or
thnee years with gratifying resqlts, N
as the staple not infreqivntly com- o
mands a premiiun of from 5 to 10 t
cents, a pound over middling upland. I
Unfortunately. few of the localities d
producing this cotton are supplied ti
with the ginning facilities best suited a
for the proper treatment of the fiber; t
saw gins, which cut and break the fib- p
er, are generally employed. In con- e
trast with this practice attention is
directed to the fact that the Egyp-"
tian and sea island cottons are treat- '
ed by roller gins, whieh contribute to t
regularity and uniformity in the fib- .
The increase in the imports of for- tJ
eign cottons which come iri competi- t
tion with sea island and other super- ti
ior cottons grown in this country has u
aroused the American growers, as is
evidenced by the fact that, when the
Payne tariff bill was recently under
consideration, representatives of the
growers of sea island cotton and of
the best varieties produced in the
Mississippi Valley petitioned congress si
for the speedy enactment of an t
amendment to the tariff laws, by 1I
which an import duty of not less than ti
43 per cent. would be imposed on thep
market valuation of all foreign grown Iti
cotton imported into America, which ni
can be used as a substitute or compet- se
itor by, American mills against simi- b
