said Mr. Daniel J. Sully, the cotton
maJipulator. yesterday. "I think it
is worse than it has been in the past
23 years and might furt;her state in
the past 40 years." he continued,
" yet with two or three years of bad
"otton erops and high prices, the
farmers will be in the best condition
that they ever have ,been.
Mr. Sully came to Columbia to con
fer with Commissioner Watson con
Ceerinu the intelligent marketing of

were secured from the commissioner
in .referea.ee to European trading and
questions involved in exportation and
baling were brought up, Mr. Sully

A further conference will be held
on September 28 in Washington at
which John Hays Hammond and oth
erl will be present.
Wher- seen Mr. Sully talked very
freely, discussing the general condi
tions of the cotton in the South, and

of a plan for a more intelligent way

it ll be very high for the co-nsumers

cotou. and the yield will be only
about 11.000.000 bales -produced on
about 32.000.000 acres of land.'
He stated that he had a number of
agents at work in the West and that
the crop was very poor there on ac

Mr. Sully. that the farmers are
rlaitting more corn than ever and out
of Augusta I saw some corn that
tlid rival a pictnre I saw in one
of the nagazines the ot,'er day of
some two story corn from Kansas.
and in my opinion the corn crop will
bring good prices this year.
''With a short cottoni crop the far
mers will be in better condition than
at the present."' said Mr. Sully.
''Prices .are bound to go up and~
shoald the farmers of the South get
15 and 16 eents for their cotton for
t.he next two or three years, t.hey

A very high compliment was paid
to Commissioner Watson. A ques
tion concerning the cotton crop in
South Carolina was asked the comn
missioner by one of the reporters,
an .l Mr. Sully, placing his hand on
the comnmissoner' s arm. sa.id. '"This
maswork is being recognized all
over the world.'
Mr. L. A. Green, of Greenville, the
inyentor of the new cotton grader,
was a visitor with Mr. Sully. Mr.
Green gave a very interesting account
of w2 at p)rom3pted him to invent a
-grader. He stated that about 13
'ears ago he was engaged in the cot
ton huvina business at GJreer, one,of
the best know'iv cotton markets in the
Piedmont section of the State, and~
tha- the' hiouse for which he worksfre
quen~tly called him down on account
of his grading. He stated that these
occurrenices put .iim to. thinking and
he decided that there w-as a better

D~eeease of Seven and a Half Bil-I
lion in Two Years.
Drinkers ila the United States, from
the chronic '"souse' to those who oc
eas:onally and lightly dally with the
foaming stein or the sparkling~ wmne
lass, hae -one shy' seveni and a
haif b)ilion drinks in the last two
vears, according to st atistiecs issued
yesterday from prohibitionl natijonal
headquarters. In the same period 1.
408.098 men who were wont to take
an average of four portions of grog

If th" seven and a half billion
drinks that were missed had gone
across the bar for consumption they
would have cost $464..49.997-15 at
the regular grog-shop prices, while if
they had been poured into a tank of
sudicient capacity would have floated
a fleet of battleships.
The statistics were compiled by
National Chairman Charles R. Jones
from an advance report of the Uniteda
*States internal revenue bureau for
the tiscal year 1909, and they were
put forth as a counter to ,the asser
tion of the Texas Brewster s associa
t ion that prohibit ion niever prohibits
and that more liquor is sold in '"dry'
than in "wet" territory.
The assertions are contained in a
''On the basis of the offivial records
issued by the internal revenue depart
ment for the four fiscal years Juae
30, 1905, to June 30. 1909, the aston
ishing fact develops that the liquor
tratfie during tha, time has come
short of its cxpV_ed sales to an esti
nated agre--ate total of 389.087.
333.97 gallons of spirits atid ferment
**The liquor tratie has been in
creasing its output by leaps and
boirnds for the years up to*1907.
"On a basis of growth, conserva
tivelv estimated at figures only equal
to the increase during the year 1905
and 1906. there would have been a
total expansion of liquor production
djuing the two yea:rs from 1907 to
1909 of 300,080,702.66 gallons of li
quor. Did it happen? Well, hardly
so you would notice it. As aTn actual
fact, during those two years, instead
of the gain above mentioned, which
might .have been expected, there was
an actual decrease of 80,006,621.31
"Of this enormous shrinkage from
expected figures of increase of liquor
production, the whiskey total is 37,
882,607 gallo-s, while the beer pro
duction in the same time shows a net
phrinkage of not less than 351,204,

"This thirty-seven odd million gal

o-ing fifty drinks to the gallon. a con
servative estimate, and 5,619,267,631
drinks of beer, reckoning every
schooner at .half a pint. The cost of
these seven and a ha?f billion drinks
of "booze," reckoned at the current
market value would have been not
less than $464,449,997.15.
"This is the sum the liquor traffic
two years ago might have expected
would pass through their tills in the
twenty-four months w4hich closed
June 30, 1909. but of which, sad (?)
to relate. they have never seen a

scri,bes to take a vaeation till further
"Putting aside for the moment the
startlilng totals of expected increase
in liquor production, which did not
materialize in the last two years, we
find an actual drop in liquor p)rodue
tion of 1908 and 1909 from the fig
u.res of 1907 of 14.65.7329 gallons of
whiskey and 2.142,614 barrels of beer.
That is. there was an aggregate drop
ini liquor production for these two
years of 2.045,987,658 drinks of dis
tilted and fermented liquors from the
total for 1907.
"Reckoning that the average mod
erate drinker buys four drinks a day.
the figures showv that the equivalent
of 1,408,098 men no longer~ patro.nize
the saloons as they did in the year,
