ORGANIZATION IS NEEDED.
We were not present at the
Cotton Association meeting. and
are not in a position to discuss
fully the plans proposed to get
in operation a standard ware
house, but on general principles
we approve of centralizing our
market facilities as much as
possible, and the only way it can
be done is through the ware
The indications are that the
cotton crop of this year will
bring a high price. but regret to
say a very large portion of this
crop has already been bought
up by the speculators, who have
placed this cotton at the mills,
and by doing so, are furnishing
the mills with raw material so
they may not be affected by the
holdings of cottonin warehouses.
Our farmers, as a rule, regard
ten cents an excellent price for
the fleecy staple, it is not, ten
cents at this time, is no more
than seven cents was five years
ago, if it is as much. The pres
ent cost of labor, of living and
of material is not being consid
ered by those who are beguiled
into signing contracts to sell
October cotton for ten cents. We
regard it a misfortune that so
many farmers are caught by the
glittering bait. If we had the
warehouses properly financed
these speculators would not have
such an open field to ply their
wiles upon the cotton raisers.
A warehouse will do no good if
there is no co-operation, there
must be a system of warehouses
with a managing head, so that
the banks of the country will
have confidence in them, and
give them financial support.
The fact of so many buyers
having their agents in the field
to make contracts with farmers
for the future delivery of cotton,
ought to be an indication that
there will be no cheap cotton
this year. There is no surplus
now, the mills are running with
scant material, and will barely
have enough to carry them
through until the new crop; the
reports from Texas and ,the
other Southwestern States indi
cate a very short crop, therefore
we look for prices far above
anythinst we have obtained in
* ~ s, and unless there is
a .kre s:tematic manner of
m~ ti. or a more sincere co
&,pvat. thei high prices for
ao wl not be the help to
the country it could be.
- Senator Latimer is a great
believer in newspaper advertis
ing while he is touring *Europe.
Evidently he is not aversed to
government by newspapers.
If the selection of a United
States Senator was left to the
editors who assembled at the
Isle of Palms, Major J. C. Hemp
hill, editor of the News and
Courier, would be the unanimous
choice to succeed the present
Senator, Asbury Latimer, who
is now on a government excur
sion in Europe.
The State's export edition wais
not only a mammoth paper but
it was a magniticient advertise
ment of Charleston's commercial
facilities. It was a great paper.
It contained 48 pages and we
are told 80,000 copies came from
the presses. The business men
of Charleston we have no doubt
will distribute this excellent edi
tion and from it we look for
good results to that city.
Commissoner Watson expects
to have another ship load of im
migrants brought over soon.
He has recently been in New
York in consultation ~ with a
steamship company that is ar
ranging to begin business soon.
The outlook is for a permanent
line to be established, and if this
is done, Charleston of course,
will become the "Castle Garden"
for the South.
The Anderson Intelligencer
exclaims "If Manning was in the
State league, and did not put up
any better exhibition of ball
playing than we see reported
from some of the State league
teams, we should feel ashamed
of them." Compare Manning's
record of last year with that of
Anderson's of this year and it
will show much better results
even if Manning was given a

The members of the State
Press Association had a royal
time at the Isle of Palms last
week. It was one of the most
successful meetings the associa
tion has ever had. The people
of Charleston entertain their
guests in such a fascinating
manner that it is a task to get
away, and when once back home,
all idea of picking up work again
is gone. The people of Charles
too have won a warm spot in the
hearts of South Carolina's edi
tors, and although they go else
where next year for the 34th an
nual meeting, they will always
carry with them a longing de
sire to get back to the Isle 1
Palms, the most charming plac
in the United States for pleasure.
and to be entertained by such a
host as Riddock & Byrns. Therc
is no hotel management any
where who are as kind and
thoughtful to their guests, every
possible attention is given them,
and all manner of things arE
provided for their entertainment.
The Isle of Palms is an ideal
spot for rest and pleasure, and
Riddock & Byrns are ideal hosts.
