Held An Important Session in |
Anderson Yesterday to Con
Those who know say that thc An
derson county farmers' union lias at
last wakened to the fact that the ca
the ?rouble with the south and the
southern farmer is to be found in tho |
amount of cotton planted ead? year.
Thlt; is the deduction reached after
tho meeting of the union was con
With J. W. Rothrock, the president
of the county union, in the chair, the j
meeting was called to order in the
court house yesterday morning at ll
A report was submitted covering
the entertainment of the state union,
which met in this city a few weeks
ago, and the local union passed res
olutions extending the official thanks
of the organization to the Anderson
chamber of commerce and to Clemson
College for thc courtesies extended
the union while in session.
The report of the secretary shows
that several new applications for
membership have been received with
in thc last few days and'that these ap
plicants have been recommended for
membership. A substantial increase
in membership is now apparent und
it iu believed that the European war
is having a good effect on the county
unions because of the fact that the
farmers see the necessity of uniting
for their own protection on ti j mar
keting of crops. (
A resolution was introduced and
adopted which says In effect that the
Anderson county union must get be
hind the effort to curtail the planting
of cotton and to further crop diversi
fication. This resolution would have
the union endeacvor to further the
move calling for more grain and less
cotton to bc planted. The union pro
poses to build up the live stock indus
try of this section and to promote the
rising of meats of all kinds in order
that assistance may be rendered the
Anderson chamber'of commerce in Its
efforts '.to secure a meat-packing
house for this city and county,
j The union entered into an election
oi delegates to represent that body
at thc southern cotton congress which '
meet; In Washington tomorrow and j
chose J. M. Br?yles, T. T. Wakefield
and F. L Burris.
The following were the' resolutions
as ndopted yesterday:
"Whereas the European war bas
caused the United Slates to beccm*
excited concerning our market and.
whereas we may have a continuance
;of the war for many years and our
market may be all torn up so that we
will have to support ourselves inde
pendent of Europe end whcreaB cot
ton 1B our chief article of export and
our money crop.
"Therefore be it resolved, by the j
Anderson county farmers' union now
in session that we adopt the plan of |
living at home and making our own !
living and a surplus to feed our city
neighbors by raising more wheat, oats
corn, potatoes, hay and all such ar-!
ticlo3 and havo our surplus crop cot
ton. And resolved second, that we
then hold such cotton until wc can
get a profitable price for it.
"Resolved', third, that we ask and
urge all the farmers of Anderson
county to come into the farmers's un
ion and help us build 'up the ruin,
thereby putting ourselves in close I
touch with each other *here we can
accomplish the desire of our hearts
and make an honen living for our
; families and raise and educate, our
children BO that they can go into the
'world , and be an honor to UB and be
able to live like they should live and
thank their dod that they were raised
on the farm and by farm pareuts and
lever call us blessed and show to thc
[World that we were men." 'j
