TO RELIEVE COTTON SITUATION.
Action Taken at Farmers' Union Meet
in in Columbia On Thursday
Columbia, Nov, 2.-The outcome of
the Fa-mers' union meeting, held here
tonight, to consider the cotton situa
tion ( is explained in the following
resolutions, which were passed:
"That this Farmers- union recom
mend to every farmer in South Caro
lina who controls a bale of cotton to
hold from the market every bale of
cotton, except "distressed cotton."
"That this holding action be tele
graphed to the authorities o alt c.th
er cotton States in the South, with
the request that a smillar plan be put
into action there.
"That the building of cotton ware
houses of a small scale throughout the
States as now be 3ontiniw-d under tht
approvel of the uni ,'wlth the idee
of eventually merging.
"That pledges De taken in wr'tiig
in every county )f the State from far
mers saying how many bales of cct
ton they will put tnemselves on as.
agreeing to hold vntil September 1,
1912, if necessary, fo: a -reasonable
price, the exact figxr- t-:- be agreed
upon in the immels.e future.
"That another set of record books be
opened in each county of the State, in
which -farmers will be asked to put
-hemselves on record as agreeing not
to plant more than 60 per cent. of their
arable lands in cotton during the sea
son of 1912."
The meeting was well attended, the
room being at one time nearly full of
keenly interested farmers and others.
It was evident that there was a spirit
of determination to take whatever
steps were possible to relieve the
present low prices paid for the cotton
on the markets.
The plan offered by Dr. Wade Stack
house, of Dillon, for a solution of the
cotton situation precipitated the long
discussion and opened up the wh6le
question of cotton growing and sell
ing. The plan, in brief, called 'for the
formation of a State warehouse com
<pany, with a capital stock of $1,000,000,
to be divided 'into shares .of the par
value of $50 each, the money to be
subscribed by the farmers of the
* State. Fifteen warehouses were to be
* built at the most logical points in the'
State, having all advantages of com
peting freight and water rates, and'
these warehouses to have enough ca
pacity to hold at east one-fourth of
the cotton crop of South Carolina.
To get the arrantgements whereby the
* farmer would be i,ble to get the money*
advanced on the warehouse receipts,
Mr. Stackhouse advocated the forma
tion of a trust company, to guarantee
the warehouse receipts and see that
the money was obtainable, the trust
company to be of 1,5i00,000 capital
aind to be located in Columbia. In ad
dition, he also planned for legal con
tracts to be obtained by this ware
house company from farmers, stating
that this cotton stored must not be
sold before August, 1912, for less than
the minimum price fixed and agreed on
-by the mass meeting tonight, and if
they did so that the..farmer forfeit to
the warehouse company the differ
ence tetween the price he obtained
and the minimum price agreed on. Of
course, cotton went over the mini
mum price, the farmer could sell when~
The plan by Mr. Stackhouse provid
ed for a reduction in acreage of at
least 25 per cent., the warehouse com
pany to hav'e farmers to sign contracts
to this effect. To guard against the
* breaking of the acreage reducing con
tract, a penalty was suggested where
by the farmer should turn over to the
- .arehouse company all cotton pro
Aticed on any acreage over and above
75 per cent. The, plan is an elaborate.
one and went into the situation in*
Mr. Jeff Buyck, of Calhoun county,,
suggested as a substitute a landlords
* or landowners' association, all owners
of land to organize this association, to~
agree to hold cotton and reduce acre
age. Mr Buyck wanted land owners to
agree to hold all unsold cotton until
the price reached 12 cents, and to take
the matter of reducing acreage on
their own shoulders. Tnle association,
in the idea of Mr. Buyck, was to cover
the entire cotton belt, and when seven-j
ty-five percent of the landowners in
the cotton .gelt agreed to become mem
bers, the plan was to be put into effect
The plan, as outlined, provided for
the landowners' association to take
care of advancing loans to members
on cotton and provided a penalty for
non-observ'ance of the rules.
Mr. Ben Keller, or Spartanburg,
stated his opposition to both these
plans and called on all farmers pres
efit to stick to the plans of the Far
m iers' union. The speaker 'said he
was sick and tired of having the plans
of the Farmers' union side tracked,'
ma thought that the farmer ought to:

M. L. Speari
take care of himself and not ask any El
others to do it for him. Thte idea of
the Farmers' union, he said, was di
versification, living at home. As op
posed to Mr. Stackhouse, who thought toi
small warehouses would never pay, to:
Mr. Kelley declared that the small fin
warehouses did pay and paid hand- se<
somely. That the idea of the Farmers' r
union was to build warehouses at ev- fie
ery point in the State, where as much at
as 3,000 bales could be gotton togeth- no
er,' no matter whether it was .a one fr
railroad town or not. He.stated that on
the small farmers had no confidence plE
in standard warehouses in Columbia, w
Charleston or other big points; but ke1
that they wanted their cotton in ware-.
houses at their home markets, where gr
they could see it with their own eyes
when they wanted to. "Finance, your in
:rop with local capital and if neces- P
sary organize farmers' union banks to the
do it," he' said. Mtf. Keller said that 1,7
the plan of getting contracts for eith- ac
er holding or reducing acreage signed Bu
by farmers as provided in the Stack- re<
ouse scheme, was impracticable and
would never work. He -made a vigor
us speech in favor of the Farmers'
nion and urged that it be composed B
f farmers alone.'C.
Mr. H. T. Morrison, of McClellan- o*
ville, chairman of the warehouse t
ommittee of the Farmers' union, fol- De
owed, in a talk telling of the plan of
uilding warehouses all over the State
s adopted by the union at its July
eeting 'and as told by Mr. Keller.
r. Morrison said that finally it wasay
lanned to merge all the warehouses a_
nd have them work together, through 'T
a central organization. He argued, S
hat the only practicable method was Fr
he one the Farmers' union had adopt-1
ed, of building warehouses at every
vailable point in the State. He said
he Farmers' Warehouse company hadRo
een organized and obtained a char
er, with a capital of $500,000;- that
ome stock had already been subscrib
d and that the company was assisting
n building warehouses in several
ounties at present. a.ga
Col. Robert Mixson, of Williston, ris,
hought mnich time had been wasted unt
nd that what was needed was some du-l
emedy for the present. "Retire every act
ale off the market that is what is N
eeded, and how to do that is what we ji
ant _to know," he stated. i
Senator E. D. Smith, stating that he
ould feel out of place in a cotton
aeting without having something
o say, told of the history of former
fights for higher prices for cotton in -
ast years and urged the farmers not y
o weaken, but to stand by the actions bes
already take.n and to demand the price
lready taken and to demand thel
rice which had been fixed for thisj I
rop. He made a great cotton speech tis
