| "HOLD COTTON,*
SAYS SENATOR MTAUR1N
V If Farmers Will Hold Their Cotton
They Can Make Their Own
Price After January.
Columbia. Nov. 16.?"I believe that
there is more cotton in the hands of
the farmers in South Carolina than in
any other state,'' said State Warehouse
Commissioner John L. McLaurin
this morning, in the course of a statement
which he gave The Charleston
American in response to a request for
an expressian upon the cotton situation
in South Carolina at this time, in
fview of the fact that cotton has reached
the highest point since the War Between
the States. "If they will just
simply continue to hold this cotton
thev can make their own pric rfter
January, when all of the distress cotton
has either passed into strong hand*
or entered into consumption," he said.
The state "warehouse commissioner
refused to predict what cotton will do.
but said he believes cotton is intrinsically
worth 25 cents a pound, and
that he is holding his own crop.
His statement follows:
fotton Hlsrhest E?er.
Cotton reached tlie highest level
yesterday that it has gone to since
the days immediately succeeding the
close of thg* War Between the States.
It would be too long a story to trace
the -causes that liave produced this result.
There is one thing that I have
observed about cotton?that when som
observed about cotton?that when
some unfavorable event happens, cotton
goes much lower than it should
: from natural causes, and that the reTerse
is true when something favorable
occurs. The pendulum swings
wider on cotton than any other product,
because of its international character,
it being used to such a large
extent as a substitute for gold in
settling trade balances. In 1914 cotton
went down in the interior towns as*
low as 5 cents a pound, and in fact
??* AiS/tAll.. ?/% morLrof of
IX16re was prctvutdli^ uv uiai nvt ub
all for cotton. This was due to a condition
of panic, and there was really
no reason for it. I have jome of the
cotton on hand yet that I offered on
the streets of Bennettsville and on
which at that time I could not get
a bid of more than 6 1-2 cents. The
difficulties of transportation are much
greater now than they w*ere then; the
r cotton will not spin any more goods
now than it would then, and the danger
of the United States being drawn
into the war is much greater now than
it was then. The chief reasons why
cotton has advacea 60 mucn m pi c
are:
"First. The demand exceeds the
supply.
"Second.-The ease with which cotton
can now be financed, on account
of its character as a collateral having
been established by the State warek
house system through the federal re?
serve banks.
"Third. The inflation iu our currency
which is always the result of a
war.
"More than one-third of the available
gold supply of the world is in the
United Statee, and this fact alone
wauld be sufficient 'o account for a
large rise in the price of everything
that is for sale. For instate, indigo
is ten times as much as It was at
the beginning of the war; log-wood,
coming in from Haiti aid Jamaica is
worth three times as much; the Chinese
and Japanese silk growers arcgetting
thre? times what they were
before the war, and so on through a
long range of products.
"But in addition to this, the federal
reserve bank bns furnished a constantly
expanding vtfrme of domestic
A?rron/>v and t'?e 1 i,",e 'oans made
lit VUi ?
by American financiers to frveig^
governments, by the extension of
credits for thp purchase of supplies
here, has boomed the price of cotton
and everything else. Cotton is really
not as high at twenty cents a pound
as a great many other products.''
"How high do you think cotton is
going?" Senator McLaurin ^as asked.
After thinking a moment, Mr. McLaurin
replied:
Will Not Affect Price.
"Well, a man who would undertake
to predict how high cotton or anything
else will go during this war
period would be \ery foolish. Thenis
one thing that can be said about
cotton?that it is the only article that
the return of peace in Europe and
on the seas will not reduce in price,
because of the fact that the continent
of Europe is bare of both, the raw and
manufactured article, and there is
probably nothing that the need 60 bad"
"Afinn Tf the war was end

ed tomorrow, then the proposition
would be something likr> this: If the
present crop is 11,500,00 bales, and
the demand for cotton is 15,000,000
bales, then the price of the goods
would have to go so high that it
would check the consumption of raw
cotton and reduce the demand from
15 to 11 million bales. I can put it
another ya: This osthae z ,flffi
another way: This is the first time
in the history of the cotton crop that
the holders of spot cotton were absolutely
in control of the situation.
New York about thTee weeksxzfiflffffi
I was in New York about three weeks
ago. and I found out there that a
very determined attempt was on foot
to break the price of cotton. They did
break it about two and one-half
cents a pound, but this had practic '
Iv no effpct on spots. If the South,
had followed the advice t t
South Carolina cotton confei
which was called by Messrs. Willie
and Dabbs, of the Farmers' Union,
the farmers would have eot tho benefit
of these high prices. As it is. my
irformation is that the budk of the
cotton has passed out of the hands of
the farmers, and is being held by
ntfaafeftren? I b?Kttr-tl&t' there" is'
more cotton in the hands of the farmmrs
in South Carolina than in anv
other State. If they will just simply
? ;
continue to hold this cotton, they can
make their own price after January,
when all of the distress cotton has
either passed into strong hands or entered
into consumption.
I "It has been the dream of my life
to see the cotton planters thoroughly
organized, we nave a. muuupuij iw
a product that should make our country
the richest section of the world,
but I fear that much of this crop was
bought by the representatives of the
British government a: twelve cents a
pound. Much of it has been bought

time approaches for filling these contracts
they liave to bid the price up
in order to get it out of the hands of
; tiie holders of spot cotton. These people
who were caught short are the
i same set who took our cotton away
from us in 1914 at six cents a pound
: up, and, so far a3 I am concerned, I
?am thoroughly enjoying getting some
, of this money back.
i "Of course we have got to sell at
' some price. I said at our conference
A ?? -- ~ fiff nOTi
here, vnen cction was ttruuuu un.rt<u
i fonts a pound, that it was intrinsij
cally worth twenty-five cents a pound,
j I do no-, make the prediction that it
j is going there, but I intend to ke^p
mine until it either gets to tha:
price or much lower. I think it is due
to go to twenty-five cents a pound on
i its merits. If the people who have got
I the spot cotton wish to squeeze those
j who haven't they can put it to thirty
1 cents a pound as easy as to twenty'
five. Really, however, this is net an
' ideal condition. Looking at it in a
i broad sense, it is just as injurious in
rt _
i the long run ior any Ui<tJiuai u t" v\i
j uct to go too high as to go too low.
! What we want to do with cotton it to
' make plenty of it to meet the n?eds of
j the world, so that the poor and nejdy
can have clothing, as well as the
rich, and then get a staple price for it.
j '^Planting cotton now is a regular
gamble. I would rather see us make
j a fifteen-million-bale crop, and get
fifteen cents a pound for it, than a
ten-million bale crop, and not get but
ten cents."

Frvan's Bij? Part.
; Raleigh News and Observer.
In the campaign which has return|
ed to the presidency Woodrow Wilson
j there is no one man who has done a
j bigger part than has been done by
j William Jennings Bryan. So splendid
has been his course that those papers
?some of them democratic?which
since his resignation from the cabinet
."have taken occasion to impugn his
democracy and to insist that he had
' out a knife for Woodrow Wilson,
I should make the amende honorable
j and give the great XebrasKan me
praise that is due.
j During the campaign, and at his
I own expense, Mr. Bryan canvassed
j the western states thoroughly, using
I a special train at times so as to reach
I many places in a day. He did not
| spare himself, but went at the work
j with a will and a determination that
j he would make his efforts count in
; behalf of Woodrow Wilson. And they
did count.
The country knows that it was the
f'A^st that saved the day for democj
racy, and it must recognize that pow,
erful influences were at work to sej
cure the reversal of the votes of
i any of the states of the West which
, have been going republican. Among
I these influences there must be counted
i William J. Bryan, and the democracy
j may well consider itself fortunate in i
j havfifg him at work for it. Thpodorti
j Roosevelt was in the West for1
i Hughes; William J. Bryan was in the
i West for-Wi'ison. Note the difference!
j in the results. i
| 'What Mr. Bryan has done in the J
; campaign just closed has been only
j the expected to those who knew the
I man. He is big hearted, strong, de1
termined democrat, who stands by
I the principles of the party and by the
men who ?o all possible to put its
j principles into effect. He has served
. damAPrapv a"blv and well. He has
put his heart into the cause. At St.
Louis his speech thrilled the delegates
and the other thousands at the demo!
cratic national convention. His services
in the West in behalf of the
, democratic nominee for president
I matched that speech.
