Ln Enthusiastic Gathering of the
Leading Farmers of Pickens
County at the Court
House Monday.
There was a large aLd repre
entative gathering of farmers
Ld business men held in the
ourt house last Monday. The
neeting was called to order by
dr.J.F, Hendricks,the president
of the County Farmers' Union.
Mr. B. Harris, of Pendleton,
vas introduced who made a
peech along agricultural lines.
Ie said everybody looked sickly
md the cause of it was the
>rice of cotton. He stated that
he price 01 cotton to-day was
elow the cost of production,
tnd the reason and cause of this
vas the farmer or producer him
elf. He said the farmer pNt
he blame on toe speculators,
he cotton mills and combina
ions, but the farmer himself
vas to blame. On the 1st day
)f September, 1911, the world
teeded cotton wo se than it had
or 35 years: there was less
tton available on this date and
ss 'uanufactured goods than
n 35 years, and more people to
se the goods. If. therefore,
he producers had known these
actg and held their cotton off
he niarketit would to-day be
inging nearet-P cents than 9
ents. Every bale - cotton
aised this year ought ib.have
rought 15 cents accordingQ4
he law of supply and demand.
f the farmers had held their
otton till the 1st day of Noveni
er it would, have brought this
The way to remedy this situ
,tion and all such future calam
ties is in the hands of. the
armer. It is through organiza
ion and co-operation and diver
ification. He believed it was
ossible for the farmers of the
outh to make the price oTr cot
on 50 cents by raising their
upplies at home and not buy
g them at a cost of three
~ourths of their cotton crop.
He stated that the trusts and
orporations would own this
ountry in 30 years unless the
armers organized; that they
Liready owned sixty million
cres of the land, and if the
armers did !not wake up they
rould in a few years be tenants
f thee corporations. He gave'
everal striking illustrations to
how the value of organizing
nd co-operating. Another rem
dy was warehouses. He urged
uildng warehouses. He be
leved that men who would
arehouse their cotton would
et at least121 cents or a profit of
14.80 after paying interest,
torage and insurance of $2.70
r bale on each bale ware
ioused and held.
The next speaker was Mr. J.
~Vhitner Reid, the secretary of
he State Farmers' Union. He
aid the Farmers' Union was
eadily growing in the state
)ut was weakest in the Pied
nont section. He confidently
xpected to see the day in this
tate when there would be 40,
)0 farmers united and standing
oulder to shoulder.
The only way we can ever
iope for better conditions in the
otton situation is to reach the
int when men will fix the
rice for it. This cannot be
Lone without selling agencies
ud bonded warehouses. The
nly remedy for the present sit
iation is to hold the cotton.
To establish these selling agen -
ies and warehouses will 2(eos
ney and must be put upon a
~usiness basis before the com
nercial world will recognize it.
The only way the farmers
an get in shape to make the,
iome manufacturer take notice
if him is through bonded ware-!
Louses and -responsible foreign
elli> agencies representing di-.
ectly the producer. lie wanted
see the time when the farmer
ould not sell a bushel of corn,
otatoes, peas, cabbage or any
ther produce except through
he selling agent. The Union
Snow inaugurating such a plan
i this state and he hoped to see
Ldeveloped into such a state of
~fficiency as will inure to the
reat benefit of the farmer.
As long as the farmers showed
he disposition which has char
~cterized their acts this fall, to
ick and put on the market as'
ast as possible his cotton, he
ieed not expect a rise in the
rice but rather a decline.
