ing which the chairman stated the pur
pose of the meeting and asked that -

Capt. . W. Sullivan spoke at.some
length on the subject'. ? He told b'
hearers that tills was one subject in
which ho was vitally intereated and'
raid that he felt as though every min
in .South Carolina, regardless of wheth
er he was a farmer or not, should fee
an interest in'the. problem with, which
the farmers aro face.to face, : Heathen
read the following bill which he had
drafted and which- bo bad Under con

Several other speakers -were heard
among them being J. M - Paget, W. R.
Mauldin, James II. Anderson. J. A.
Cely and Leon L. Rice .and then M. N.
Patterson took the view that since thc
regular session of,the,general assem
bly will be held in January that the
proposed law requiring a reduction ot
the cotton crop could easily he repeal
ed nt, the regular session, provided it
was unsafe and unsound and he urged
that some action b? taken r.t once,
Since t*>o farmer cannot walt much
longer for aid.
A. J. Smith, a farmer, himself,
introduced a now point of v|ow when
ho r-ijj tha*-it'was hardly necessary
to onact any legislation to prc ve fit. tho
farmers from planting so much cot
ton next year, because there would be
very few with means enough to plant
cotton. He added that every man
with common sense would reduce bte
cotton^crop and speaking for h'raaclf,
J he said that ho did not expect to ralaa
r?oro than bait the cotton next year
that he produced thin year.
W. WV. scott, ou o -of the members
of thc general assembly, said that the
farmers hedged tho IJutional jrovorn

d upon to state the cotton nial view
point and he said that the Idea of holt.
.fa?S.'eporial ses?lon of the general ak?
eembly was wrong. In his opinion. He
ls convinced thal a ml?take bas bee>
?ade. since"If the farmers wonld wal
until the ras?las session of the legis- J
larive body is held in January they}
would have tim? to get farther light on j
tb? situation and would bo able to.pr^- j
sent more reasonable plans. He point
ed out that legislation adopted by thlf
Stute might rudically differ from that
of tho other states.
M. N. Patterson made a motion tba
a resolution be adopted to the effec
that lt was the sense of thc convention
that reduction in the cotton acreage
waa imperative. The resolution was
was unanimously adopted und then be
gan the dlscu.-sion of how fur thc re
duction should exist.
Mr. Patterson then Introduced a re
so'utlon which asks tue general as
sembly to pass a law prohibiting any
farmer from planting moro than eight
acres to the horse and mule for the
Beacon of 1915, the stock during the
year 1915 not to be increased over
1714. The resolution was adopted.
Some, discussion was pngaged ir.
when Senator Sullivan asked for an
expression of opinion on the question
ot the McLaurin warehouse bill. Sher
iff Ashley and several others npoko in
favor of a state warehouse and then
Mr. Ashley introduced a resolution
favoring the creation of a fund for'ft
state hank to loan money to the far
mers and the formation of u State
warehouse commission. The resolu
tion waB adopted.
Thc following resolution introduced
by W. H. Canfield, met with a hear
ty reception and was unanimously
adopted: < '
"Whereas immigrants from foreign
countries have been pouring into the
United States at thc rnte of more than
a million a year and huvc brought
cheap and incompetent labor into com
petition with the American labor; and
whereas, the general effect of this, im
migration is to lower our ?tandarde
of citizenship and to Increase th?
problems qt government in this coun
try, and whereas, it is conceded that
ifter.tho close of the present destruc
tivo war in Kurope there will be on
iverflow of people leaving the war-in
fested nations to come to thc United
States, thus enuring a social,, political
md economic, condition that might
prove disastrous to this country, and
whereas, it ts more than likely that a
great portion.of this undesirable for
eign element may shift to the South
and-Upset labor conditions here; now,
"Be it Resolved, that we petition the
legislature %t ita special session to be
held during this month to memorialize
the congress of the United States to
restrict immigration and to place
nround lt auch safeguards and limita
tions a? wilt protect the Interests of
Ibis country, and especially the la
boring interests."
