The Whooping up Business.
The whooping up and howling I
down of candidates at politicial i
meetings has become very com
mon, more so this year than in
the 90's when .such a tumult
was raised. Indeed it has be
come professional. Men follow
the campaign from place to
place to whoop up their favorite.
From newspaper accounts of
the twenty five or more State
campaign meetings thus far
held one would get the idea that
Gov. Blease ws easily the
favorite with the people for the
reason he received the most ap
plause and hurrahs. But this
does not always show, in fact
very seldom indicates, the man
receiving it is the favorite. Fifty
men in a crowd of five hundred
yelling, whooping, hollering and
cheering would easily impreES
one that the whole crowd or the
greater part of it was engaged
in it. Three or four dozen men
can make enough noise in a
crowd to drown the voicesf Ithe
This question..hasbeen raised
in the Stateeampaign and is be
-K ftised by the candidates
and newspapers. It has been
stated and not denied that the
whoopers fer Gov. Blease at the
campaign meetings are what is
known in the latest political
parlance as "rooters" that - is
they are fond friends of the
governor scattered over the state
and go from place to place, from
county to county to whoop 'em
up. At the Calhoun county
meeting Judge Jones made a
of Blease men ad
mit they were from Orange
burg and Lexington, adjoining
counties. It is well known that
the Columbia meeting which
whooped so long and loud for
2 Blease had men, Blease men,
from all over the state. They
went there to whoop 'em up and
they whooped 'em up.
We were told by a gentleman
this week that already plans
were being laid and arrange
mnents made to run special trains
from every part of the state to
the Greenville meeting, which
will be the last one. Watch and
see if this is not true. Watch
and see if the Greenville meet
ing is not the most largely at
tended of any in all the cam
paign. Watch and see if the
Blease whoopers are not there
in large numbers and that such
whooping as they will do will be
a caution. Watch and see if
they do not try to howl Jones
down and carry the meeting
by storm for Blease so as to
make the impression that he is

Plan to Hold Cotton.
I noticed last winter that the
farmers were holding conven
tions and adopting resolutions
with the view of obtaining
higher prices for cotton. These
conventions, resolutions and
pledges to reduce acreage are
all right as far as they go, but
so far they have been ineffect
ual. They are deficient in
power, and consequently fail to
secure the relief that the farm
ers are entitled to. Resolutions
and pledges cannot compete'
with capital. It takes capital
to compete with capital. Mon
ey is necessary to compete with
the money of the speculators
and bears of Wall street and the
How would the following
Each county in the South es
tablish a farmers' cotton bank
and warehouse at a suitable
place in the county, the capital
stock amounting from~ $400,000,
00 to $1.000,O000 dollars. or as
large amount as is necessary
for tho operation of the cotton
selling business of the respec
tive counties. Stock shares to
be $100 with the privilege to any
and all persons to aid in sup
port of this plan to buy as many
shares as wanted.
All stockholders to share
equally; no preferred stock.
Loan this money on cotton de
posited in warehouse as collat
eral, interest at five or six per
~ent per annum, said interest
*o be paid montly in advance,
Yond the value of -the cotton
This money to be loaned upon
tton collateral only.
The profits would not accrue
>on. the stock invested, but
pon the advance and high
lice of the cotton when sold
der this plan. This. it seems
) me, would put the farmers in
condition to pay their debts
d hold their cotton for ad
ance and remunerative price.
The farmers' cotton bank and
rarehouse to be regularly or
,anized and chartered and
anaged by competent business
nen upon rerounerative sa d
ies, the officers to furnish 'd
uate bond, and these institu
ions to be managed as all other
;afe banking institutions are.
According to this plan, each
armer who is a stockholder,
>orrpws the money he needs as
in individual transaction wth
>ut relation to any other stock
holder, and he sells his cottor
when it suits him and pays hic
debts to these banks without re
lation to any other stockholder
just the same as he would bor
row money on land or chatte
from any other bank. There
fore, we think this removes thi
transaction from the operatioi
of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act
It is, in a few words, a cot
ton bank where a farmer cai
borrow money on his cotton an,
hold it until he wishes to sell ii
There is no conspiracy to poC
cotton and hold it for a certai:
price. Each stockholder acts I
his individual capacity, an
sells when he thinks it will pr<
mote his best interest. Thi
plan would be permanent.
Any plan for securing a pro:
itable price for cotton that hf

tion will always be a failur
