THE DISEASE AXD THE KE.MEDY
(By Uncle Sam Hampton.)
Lust of a series of articles to be
published In the Co-Operator.
(Continued from last week.)
I have given you the arguments
nr.d facts, showing the Importance
.ud the power of the farmers when
organized and united, and now I
come to present to you the plan that
will bind the farmers to their own
sstem and place them in possession
of the machinery of marketing.
The trouble heretofore has been to
get a concert of action of all the
farmers. When this fact is assured
the stability of our movement will
have been realized.
I approach this subject with perfect
confidence In the success of the
plan, if it is given a fair test. I fully
realize that "Doubting Thomases"
will exj!s all kinds of fear and
will urge many objections, and if
possible, mystify and confuse, 'and
resurrect the most frightful ghosts
and predict many Imaginary evils.
The plan is what you want, and I
will now give It, and will follow
with a supplement answering objections.
The Union Agreement and Pooling
To fortify and reinforce the members
of the Farmers' Union in obtaining
profitable prices for tho
crops of the farm, and the
and collective sale of same
We. the undersigned, members of
the Farmers' Educational and Cooperative
Union of America, hereby
enter Into the following compact
and working agreement, to-wlt:
1st. To plant and cultivate sufficient
food crops to feed ourselves
2nd. To discourage and avoid as
far as -possible, the credit and mortgage
3rd. To refuse to sign any and
all mortgages or contracts that will
prevent or hinder us from co-operating
with our brother farmers In
the marketing of crops.
1th. That all of our surplus
crop, especially cotton, shall be for

Union, promote harmony and good
will and to maintain honesty in all
trlatlons with each other.

Objections ami Answer.
Objection No. 1. Suppose all the
farmers organize and pool their cotton,
won't that be a trust?
An. No. not a criminal trust,
as the crop so pooled remains the
property of the farmer that produced
it. and Is for sale through tho Union
system. Just the same as tho labor
union workers and all others, who
are organized for protection.
Objection No. 2. Can farmers
make prices for themselves?
Ans. Yes, when organized. Somebody
makes prices now: why not tho
farmers? They have the best right
Objection No. 3. Can tanners
who are In debt afford to hold their
Ans. Yes, they can better afford
to hold than to sell It at a sacrifice.
Besides, when they are all organized,
and holding at the same time,
they won't have to hold long. Nobody
will be hurt, but everybody will
Objection No. 4. But suppose
speculators refine to buy.
Ans. Let them quit. Tho farmers
don't neotl them, anyhow. Legitimate
dealers will then come forward
and buy from the farmers at
the farmers' price, and the gambler
and speculator will he eliminated.
The world needs and must have
what the farmer produces, but the
speculator and gambler is n para
site. Nobody needs them.
Objection No. 6. Wouldn't there
be danger in the fanners setting the
price too high?
Ans. No; their Union ! based
upon the principles of Equity and
the Golden Rule. They can be better
trusted than the- food trust
Objection No. 6. Are the farmers
competent to handle their own
Ans. Yes. When co-operating
they can furnish supplies with a
great deal more certainty and regularity
than at present. Very often
now, under heavy declining market,
or even with rapidly advancing
prices, the goods of life are held otf
the market, and people are forced
to suff?r. The farmers contemplate
a steady supply to meet a steady demand.
Speculation is very injurious
to both producers and consumers.
Objection No. 7. Will it not
a vast expenditure of money
for farmers to do these things for
Ans. No. Farmers are not organizing
to buy. but to sell their
products. It will require only a
very small capital to build and equip
their machine of marketing, and the
world will have to furnish the money
to buy the crops. One cent a pound
placed upon cotton would build
every warehouse necessary to protect
every bale of cotton and put the
farmers In the possession of the machine.
One cent per dozen on ogas,
one cent per pound on butter and
one cent per pound on fat cattle
and hogs will more than do all these
things for farmers. When organized
we are in a position to make
the balance of the world do these
things for us with no nossiblo In
jury to anyone.
Objection No. S. Can farmers bo
depended upon to stick to their organization?
Ans. Yes. When you give them
something that will bring them benefits,
they will stick as well as any
other class. The farmers are the
greatest organizers and stickers In
the world and when you irlve them
something to stick to, that will make
mem money, onnbling them to have
comfortable homes and educate their
children, they would be worse than
fools not to stick. They have got to
stick or continue to be "stuck "
Objection No. 9. Won't it take a
long time to organize all tho farmers
on this plan?
Ans. Xo. Thv -.111 orginlrc
more rnp'JIy ou this piun than unv
other. Wh"n once they are assured
that the plan Is to bring all the
farmers into line, they will have
ureater confidence in the Union.
that tit farmers have been
.-low to organize Is that the plan
rrv not been definite. But with
a definite plan before them, and
when all farmers are going to be
nfcked to join and co-operate. thev
..'ill organize very lapldly. Beside,
we don't need all
of them, as a in
considerable number, or at least a
majority of tho farmers, acting in
concert, can win.
Objection No. 10. I am afraid if
rices are made profitable as the
1 nion contemplates. that farmers
will nl.int big crop? and overproduce.
:s. Just the opposite is the
truth. Good prices will havo the
greatest tendency n the world to
cause, farmers to reduce their crop
acreage and practice intensive farm
lug and diversification. Prices being
good. It will not lie necessary for
farmers to plant large fields and
work their wives ami children.
Ujou prices are low. thev must
necessarily plant heavy . ropg to
meet demands upon the.u. Gdod
prices will enable tho farmers to
give their land the "rent cure." and
thus build up and reclaim its lost
I havo gone enough with these
objections and answers. If anybodv
has any more lot them bo brought
forwatd. This Is no time to quibble
and debate foolish questions.
What the farmers want is a plan
unite them and If you will study
he propositions laid down in tho
handbook we will arrive at the
'ruth, jind our grand cause will go
forward to success.
Yours In tho cause of humanltv.

Mr. Gompers discussed tho conditions
which hnd confronted the
wage-earner and the things which
had been done to better those conditions,
and urged that the same
