NO COTTON TO BE SOLD
FOR LESS THAN 14 CENTS
3)ASS MEETING OF FARMERS OF
NEWBERRY SO DECLARE.
That Price 31inium to Novenber 15
Sentiment Strong in Favor Hold.
iug for Higher Pice.
More than three hundred farmers
assembled in the court house on Mon
day to consider the price of cotton and
to see if by counseling together some
thing could be accomplished.
The meeting was held in response
to a call issued by Mr. E. J. Watson,
commissioner of agriculture, and also
b: the Farmer's union. These meet
ings are called in accordance with
plans made at a recent convention of
cotton growers held in Birmingham
and the purpose of the meeting was
not only to discuss the situation, but
to elect delegates to the State conven
tion; which is to be held in Columbia
on the 28th.
The farmers, as well as other men
present were very much interested'
and very much in earnest. On the
resolutions -to test their sincerity about
90 per cent. of the farmers present
agreed to hold their cotton off the mar
ket at least until the 15th of Novem
ber if prices remained below 14 cents.
Mr. R .T. C. Hunter was elected
chairman; A. D. Hudson secretary and
Mr. Alan Johnstone spoke for half
an hour or more reviewing the whole
cotton situation and he concluded by
suggesting that it must be a Southern
mov'ement combining all Southern in
Mr. John C. Neel had been thinking
about the price of cotton a good deal
this fall. He said that the price had
declined 6 cents in three months, an
average of 2 cents per month. The
main question, as he saw it, was how
to keep this price up and what scheme -
was it proposed to adopt. He thought
that if each farmer in the 'cotton belt
would put aside one-fdurth of his cot
ton that the price could be kept un
der the control of the farmers.
Mr. John M. Kinard, representing
his bank, stated he believed that the
position taken by him *would be. en
dorsed by the mnajority of the banks of
South Carolina, and speaking for these*
banks, he Was satisfied they would be
willing to loan money On cotton at 7
per cent. per annum. He stated that
pton was the best collateral that he
knew of, and that he was interested
in a good price for cotton because it
meant a good balance in the banks.
It was also stated enat the Bank of
Prosperity was willing to co-operate
with the farmers.4
Dr. W. C. Brown stated that it was
useless to elect delegates unless we
had some plan, some d:efinite plan to i
carry to the State convention.
Mr. John C. Neel asked Mr. Kinard
if he would only lend on cotton if it 1
were in the warehouse. Mr. Kinard 1
replied that he frequently loaned be
fore cotton was grown, which, of
course, meant that a good deal de- 1
pended on the person desiring the
loan. He could not lend except on
Mr. W. A. McSwain stated that his
company was prepared to insure cot-1
ton for the farmer in -bales or in seed
on a basis .rate oft 3 1-2 per cent.4 per
annum, where th:ere was no fire pro
tection and he would insure it for its
full cash value.
Mr. John M. Suber stated that most
every man can get money on his cot
ton and he thought each one would
have to work out the details of secur
ing his money for himself. The ques
tion for the convention was how much
cotton can. we keep off the market.
What is the sentiment of those present
as to withholding cotton from the mar
It was at this suggestion that the
resolution was adopted by a practical
ly unanimous vote of the farmers
present to keep off the market until
November 15 any cotton at less price
than 14 cents.
The following delegates were elect
ed to the convention to be held in Co
lumbia on the 28th. The chairman
was authorized to fill any vacancies:
W. C. Brown, John M. Suber, A. D.
Huson, G. Y. Hunter, Jas. McIntosh,
John M. Kinard, B. C. Matthews, Alan
Jobnstone and S. J. Kohn.
Election at Chappells.
The mu.nicipal election which was
held at Chappells on the 15th resulted
in the election of E. M. Martin as
mayor; W. P. Allen, W. 0. Holloway,
H. C. Strother, G. W. Stevens, as ald
ermen. Mr. H. M. Crouch was elected
clerk and treasurer.

Mr. S. K. Bouknight, the farher of
the young man who was killed, lives c
t Irmo, near Columbia. He formerly,,

Saturday when the killing of his son

report is that young Bouknight went
to Constable Will Blair at Blairs and
reported "that several negroes were

gave Bouknight. a pistol and asked him 0
to go with.hi, Blair, and assist in
