The mammoth Cotton Conven

11-18, 19W, without a single dis

dorsed the resolution to hold the

the present crop for fifteen cenlts,

The Exocutive Committee of the
Southern Cotton Association, in an -
nual session at New Orleans, Janu
ary 15th, 1906, alao .unanimously
eudorsed the action of the Conven
tion relative to the tifteen cents res
olution. Representatives of South
ern Bankers, who assembled at Now
Orleans during the Cotton Conven

guaranteeing the moral and financi
al support of southern bainkd in) the
present effort of the Soutlieri CUt

cents for it, baklance (.I tih crop.
The figh t iS now on to a fluish be
tween the Spot holderi atnd friends
of higher prices, backed by south
eini bank. re, and the [kar spesmula.
toirs, stpinzjers and enemies to fair
an1d equitable prices. The lines
are plainly drawn, and friend or

the voice, pen or poeition taken.
We are daling with a product
worth nany hundred of million of
4d lais annually, distributed, in its
raw and in its manufactird form,
throughout the eutire civilized
world. The irducers of this most
valuable iroduct (.f Southern moils
have bel the slavei4 and 6erls of the
co'mmercial aid consiming world
for nmar!y a half century. Southern
cotton growers, financed by theii
local batiks, are gradually working
a revolution in the old system) o)
marketing their -taple.
Shart crops and fairly good
prices from 1900 to 1904, freed the
southern growers generally from
the lash of mortages and credit.
Increasing the food supply crops,
has been an important factor in de
volopment of that independaice
and thrift which should character.

it made p'sible the handling of the et
groat crop of 1905, on a profitable tri
basis to the growers against the ti(
combined organized brain and in
money of the world. It is for these le
ieasons, together with advanced all
thought, study, and a better knowl- ov
edge of legitimate oupply and de or
mand of cotton, that will enable the e1
spot holders of cotton in the south, 03
to demand and eniforce higher prices ora
for the balance of this crop than ba

not been denied that spinners could thI
have paid twelve cents to tihe farm- 811
ers, for the entire crop of 1905. and
declared good dividends on their be
investment, at the prevalin~g high by~
prices of. yarns and dry goods. It 'of
cainnot be denied that Bear specu. TI
lators, backed b~y the spinners took th
a lvantage of the necessities~ of the ril
farmers in September and October, n)
and forced prices down to 94 cents ar
per pound, buying in fully one-halt to
of the crop around ten cents. If bc
the balance of the crop no0w held. 9
and1( which does not exceed 1,500,- wI
000 bales, is sold at fift een cents per 12
pound, the whole crop would go) to P1
the buyers and spimners at an aver- SO
age price to the farmerse, under 12 or
