The American Gianer *nd Cotton
Reporting Agency seet great danger
to the fArmers in the .etablishment of
warehouses for the storage of cottoo.
It seems underneath the system a
secret scheme to c-ntral the cotton
market and oppresz the farmer. It
admits that this is not the avowed par
pose of the "Napoleons in the domain
of business," publicly expressed, out
that 'Ithe invasion has lbeen under
taken" and "is insidious in its ap
This is about the way the tch ene
will be worked according to the
Ginner: "The cotton will be taken to
-he warehouse by the farmers when
the price of cotton is not satisfactory,
and the farmer will want a little
money oi his cotton. H1e will take
his warehouse receipt and negotia'e a
loan approximating the value of the
cotton at the time of delivery. The
warehouse conoern will probably ad
vance the money itself. When the
cotton declines a margin will be do
manded, but the farmer has spent the
S-imoney he borrowed ayA cannot put it
nu. He loses hit cotton, and tLe
warehouse concern has his cotton."
This, of course, may not apply to
Mocal warehouses owned by home
people, but the trusts have a way of
crushing oat local competition. Thoy
have swallowed up nearly all the cot
too seed oil mills, and they may get
Gentrol of the warehouses.
The farmer has within himself,
however, the power to be independent
of the trusts. If he will raise his own
supplies and cotton as a surplnsage,
he an hold his cotton himself when
he pleases, and won't have to borrow
money on it. The trouble with the
farmer is that his methods of doing
business make him an easy prey for
the trusts to devoar.

CAN UOTI N CONNURNO?
The American Ginner.
Every observer of events recognizes
that this is an age of unprecedented
and overwhelming corporate enter
prises. Vast aggregations of capital
are organized for controlling the price
of every article of human production,
and in many elds they have been
wonderfully successful. The success
has naturally induced an inclination to
undertake the widest fields of enter
prise until no product or commodity.
no matter how Tant, can be considered
immune from attack.
The cotton crop of America, enlist
ing, as it does, the interest of every
civilized country on earth, farnishing
raiment to the nations, has be!en hith
erto considered too vast in its propor
tions and too wide in its rarnificatious
of influence to tempt the octopus. But
it appears that the very magnitude of
the enterprise has been an inspiration
and an inducement to the endeavor.
The very greatness of the enterprise
has seemed to invite, rather than repel,
the endeavors of some who have
sahieved great things in other similar,
but smaller, undertakingt. It would
seem as if stupendous success in the
circumscribed feld whetted the appe
tite for greater worlds to conquer, and
!here are many evidences plainly dis
cernible to the intelligent observer,
who looks beneath the surface, that
such an enterprise has been planned,
and the process of extension begun.
The Napoleons of inance who un
dertake these stupendons enterprises
never make an assault ri d armis-the
waiting siege, sapping and mining,
constitute their method of operation and
approach to the citadel which they de
sire to capture. And that siege.against
cotton has began. We have repeatedly
pointed out the indications of its pro
gress and sought to show the danger
that menaced the producer and con
sumer alike in the slow but gradual
approach of the enemy, and the fright.
ful consequences that must ensue un
less this insidious foe was met and
repelled. We thaye also exposed the
feasibility of the plan of operation un
dertaken by the trust and how in
possible it was to defeat their aesomp
lishment without organized resistance
on the part of the interests assailed.
Once surrendor the preparation of
cotton for market to a monopoly and
where then is tb hope of the producer
Once establish the warehouse system
of storage and who controls the mar
These two agencies combined falgll
all needful means to accomplish what
is known as a corner, and when they
become generally ladopted, the pro
ducer on the one hand must take the
price coffered and the spinner en the
other must pay the price asked, or the
alternative. The grower's cotton must
ret on his hands and a famine of
cotten goods produced.
Who can measure the misery that
must result from such a situation?
Yet who can doubt that it must be
the logical sequence of the surrender
of the cotton crop of America to a
monopoly such as has been organized
for its capture.
