o Letter From the People. o
O v o
We fully indorse the many nice I
things that our friend Barnett has
to say about our old editor, Mr.
Banks and our new editor, Mr.
Smoak. We are sure that they
are both splendid men and that
big hearts> beat within their
breast, that they have the best in
terest of the country'at heart and
if possible that they would make
all of our. people happy and pros
perous. Some very strong edi
torials have and still appear in the
columns of The Intelligencer and
while we do not agree with all that
is said we give those who are re
sponsible for them the credit of
being honest and if ?hey are wrong
we are sure it is of the head and
not of the heart.
In that there are things being
talked and done in this country
i that is not for th? best interest ol
our people, all we ask is space in
The Intelligencer in which to ex
press ourselves and we are sure
that the new editor will not re
fuse us this right,
In the present cisis, we can
not best feel that iv. is strange,
wonderful strange, that the old
cotton farmer, in the spring of the
year can so easily get help with
which to make a crop and then
in the fall when-it is made and
when every human vulture is on
his old carcass in an effort to get
thc product of his honest toil at
and below cost that the same old
farmer can not get a red copper
cent -with which to help get a fair
and legitimate profit out of his
labor that he is justly entitled to.
Everybody is ready to feed a,
few "lasses" to the bees when
they are about to starve but when
the gum is full of honey and rob
bing time comes, nobody knows
Yes Mr. Editor, there's some
thing wrong, radically wrong
when we are reliably informed
that there's more money in oui
banks at present than's been for
years, yet we are told by them
that they are not making any nea
loans. It seems to be a case of
having us by the throat with nc
let up as long as there's breath in
our financial body. Ont- thin?
sure, the pendulum can only
swing so far in one direction and .
when it swings back the other
way there's something going to ?
happen, for this is one time that'
our farmers are not going to soon
forget the deal that is being given,
We do not believe there's ii
mnn in our section of the rm in -
try but what wants to meet ever*
obligation that he has made, but]
he does not believe it is right foi!
him to sell his cotton at a price'
that he had nothing to do with
the making, when that price' will
not only fail to pay what he o wei
but will have absolutely nothing
left for his poor ?wife and children
who have helped to make it and
to be frank with you, Mr. Editor,
some of them are not going to do
iii We are being advised by some,
that if we can do no better to sel!
our cotton at what ever we cari
girt for it and straighten up with
the banker and merchant. They
seem to think that it makes no
difference what snaps Ulis would
leave the farmer and his far
in just so the banker and men -t
is cared for..
When the dry goods trade be- j
wm cs dull, is the merchant ever
advised to sell His goods at and
below cost in order to get rid of 1
And again when money is easy
and not much being borrowed
and v?u ev?r see the fellow with
herve enough to advise the bank-' (
er to lend his money at and be
low what it has cost him ?
' And once again, when the mule
market is dull did yt.u ever hear
of the mule dealer bein? advised
to sell his-mules at and b?knr
cost rather than keep them ? Oh!;
no. the cid fool cotton farmer is
the only fellow that is advised as
what to do with his goods and if
advice was money the old fellow
wouK be a multimillionaire with
in the next forty eight hours.
Ves, you say that some farmers
claim that their cotton;don't cost
them over 6 or ? cents per pound,
but put in your pipe and smoke
it^that when a. farmer says that he
can raise cotton at tess than a
cost of toe per pound that he isl
in a "skin garrw" to the tune of li
feeding his "nhrgers" on sorry j \
rations and giving, them, just I
enough cheap clothes to hide
their nakedness, and then in the
fall he swallows the brute hair,
hide, hoofs and horns. Now just
a word to that bunch in Colum
bia. We would like to ask them
if they can make a law that will
force thc farmer to reduce his cot
ton acreage, then when the world
needed it could they not also make
a law by which they could make
thc old sinner increase his cot
ton acreage? Poor rule that
won't work both ways.

New Orleans Cotton
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 20.- |
The downward movement in the
price of cotton continued today,
bids for January being reduced to]
1.10, while spot cotton was of
ficially quoted at 6 5-8 for mid-1
diing, a loss of one-eighin from]
Thc refusal of insurance com
panies to take war risks on ship
ments of cotton to many neutral
ports was given as one of the rea
sons for the decline. The Iss of
a sixteenth in qutationes at Dallas
early in the day helped to winken
local spots while the large receipts
at Memphis and Houston, the
movement to both points being
larger than for the correspond

NEVtf YORK, Oct. 20.-The
amendments to the by-laws of the
cotton exchange were adopted by
ah almost unanimous vote of the
nv.mters here today. A report
from the clearing house commit
tee was submitted to the board of
managers, but action on this mat
ter is not considered necessary to
? reopening cf the market, and the
trade now Is chiefly interested in
Hie progress or the plan for tak
ing over old contracts by a co
Dpera,tiotn and. svQdj?atfc ftfW
able weather conditions were re
ported generally in the South and
Spot markets were said to be
a shade easier. Local spot deal
ers, however, claim that 'armers
show little willingness to consid
er prices under the six-cent level
and some of the Eastern belt mar
kets were steadier. Domestic mills
arc buying some cotton from day
to day, but are still reported to
be.operating only for immediate
requirements. Complaints of
country damaged cotton are be
ginning to reach the trade and it
is said that much cotton is being
held by farmers without adequate
protection from the weather.
NEW YORK, Oct. 20.-Inter
est in financial affairs today cen
tered chiefly around the confer
ences being held in Washington
between representatives of the
British finance minister and treas
ury officials. The outcome of
these meetings is expected to have
a very direct 'rearing, not only up
on existing foreign exchange con
ditions, but also upon the broad
question of thc reopening of the
London and New York stock ex
Washington also was the seat
of continued negotiations relative
to the organization of the propos
ed cotton pool in which a hitch
was reported. The chief obstacle
in the way of this plan is said to
be the disinclination of the Fed
eral Reserve Board to assume full
responsibility for the project on
the ground that other and nrore
pressing duties are now before it
There was another abrupt break
in exchange on London, cables
being quoted at 4.96 1-2 and (*e j

associated with the recent heavy
