THE BOLL WEEVIL
Heard Address at Charleston
Meeting Saying that Weevil
Arrives in 5 Years
our rf Anderson's well known
jin nit o rn auld,yesterday timi ibo peo
ple <.f tiiis section would do wo|| to
bear iii mind Hie remit rice mude ut
Ihe State meeting of South Carolina
Hunker?., held at ciiarteston, on th?
H nb jed of (bc boll weevil. This is
a danger, hardly lo bu termed im
iiilneni a :<i, and still lt ls a fore
gone conclusion that the boll weevil
will leach South Carolina and An
derson coiiuly within the next few
. Tin j >;i weevil ha about 2"o mil
en to travel before it reaches thc
South fut pl I? u-border and ut it:: a\
eragc rate rf migration thia will re
unir ? r bout five years," said ll.
II. Itawl, chief of the dalry division,
bureau cf animal industry, Trilled I
States ?1? Mariaient of agriculture, inj
an ad ti rc on Ihr boll weevil deliver
ed b?fete the South (.'a roi I na Bankers'
iisKouIptlod recently in Charleston. On
this premire Mr. Bawl developed plans
for Uic people of the Stale by which
they cnn better cope with tho situa
tion v/bon tho boll weevil appears
and reduces the cotton crop about f>0
per cent. Ho told of the ravages In
other States and drew a parallel of
similar conditions for this State. Ills
remedy is that the farmers learn to
grow other crops or to raise live stock
aud that the hankers cooperate with
thom by lending them money to build
up these new ventures.
Mr. Raw) traced ?.> gradual ad
vance of .' tl from thc
time thu. iured In the
Brazos rlv%_-. f Texas, and
showed by stat. :he devastation
al this little a .1- has done. In
nu (siana, for instance In 1904, thc
cotton crop was over 1,000,000 bales,
but niter the boll weevil had fully
entered the State the crop decreased
to less than "250,000 hales, and since
then it has not exceeded 400,000 bales
per annum. But worse are the figures
for ten counties In the southern- part
of Mississippi. In 1906 they produced
un aggregate of 262. 486 bales, which
wus reduced In 1 912 to 38,133 bales.
Speaking of the change tn financial I
conditions due to this astounding de- j
crease in cotton production, Mr.
"Since cotton, bas become unprofit
able, why do the farmers not. raise
live stock? Thc answer is. they do
not know how to conduct a live stock
business and they have no money .to
get into lt. The bankers are unwill
ing to lend money for live stock pro
duction, because they know that tho!
farmers ure, without experience in
this business and therefore loans for |
that purpose would be unsafe.
"Vou," he continued, "the bankers
of South Carolina, have in your con
trol tho most powerful single factor
for dealing with thia most perplexing
I problem, It is the $37,000,000 that
you lend annually to the fnrmers of
the state for cotton production. You
! can require as a condition of these
loans that a small amount of them,
say 10 per cent., be devoted to the
production of money crops other than
' cotton. You can increase tholr lonns
I slightly with the stipulation that the
in ere a>-o and. 10 per cent., of. thu loan
dosiredobarU8ed for something other
than cotton.". .
j , Mr. Ra wi then. went on to show
how tho farm demonstration agent
1 would give any farmer aid in carrying
; out aomo of. the plans of raising gratn
crops, cows, hogs, mules and other
things',1 to tako the,place of tho colon,
i VTh'fc^?pproachlng boll weevil," be
concluded, f'will brihg to the State
tho greatest economic problem that
has confronted lt in the last half
century, "'ItmuBt not bo considered
; the merchant's and the banker's prob
I the. farmer's problem alone, for lt ls
! lcm as well; in fact, every business
tn tho, state .will be affected by lt
Tho task ls difficult and tho timo is
short, but there is a chance hore for
a great piece of constructive work for
South Carolina and a chance for a
great and good work for mankind."
