WF.ST0N PREDICTS HIQHER PRICKS,
Makes Strong Appeal to Fanners to
To the farmers of South Carolina: In
the absence of our State president, Mr.
E. D. Smith, who is now canvassing
Texas in the interest of the Southern
Cotton Association, I desire to say a
few words to you in reference to the
appeal that bus reeently been made to
you by the central office at Atlanta, to
hold your cotton for higher prices. Let
me remind you that in every instance
In which the Association has joined is
sues with those who were fighting to
secure your cotton at their prices you
have won a brilliant victory. The same
people who are now urging you to part
with your cotton predicted that ten
cents would not be secured as demanded
by the New Orleans Convention for the
cotton held in the South. By unity of
action and taking the advice of the As
sociation in the face of a fourteen mil
lion bale crop you secured ten cents for
your cotton. When you were appealed
to to reduce your acreage and fertiliz
ers it was predicted by the same crowd
that you would be treacherous towards
each other and increase both acreage
and fertilizers. This slander upon the
Southern farmers was disposed of by
the Government report on acreage.
When those that you intrusted with
your interest were convinced that the
department of agriculture was being
used to your detriment, and we felt it
our duty to attack it, we were ridiculed
and jeered at; nevertheless we proved
beyond doubt every accusation we
made against the department, and
showed it to be thoroughly rotten.?
When our estimate of the crop for 1905
was made, and in view of the short
crop, we asked that the farmers be
paid a mimimum price of 11 cents for
their cotton, you heard on all sides that
this was too much; yet throughout the
South that price has been paid. The es
timate of the Association has again
been confirmed by the ginners' report
which has just been issued. If the
spinners of the world are now made to
pay more for their cotton whose fault
is it? They had ample opportunity to
go into the market and bviy at 11 cents,
yet they preferred to believe the pre
dictions of Theodore Price and a cam
paign was inaugurated which had for
its object the stampeding of the farm
ers of the South. All reports confirm
the Association that cotton is worth
more than 11 cents and in the near fu
ture will bring more than 11 cents.
The question is simply this: Who shall
get the benefit of this advanced price?
We appeal to you to sign the pledges
that have been sent out and stand by
the Association in this fight. All this
talk of crippling and ruining the manu
facturing interests is veritable botch.
If the manufacturer has to pay more
for his raw material he will receive
more for his finished product unless
that finished product is higher than
some other article which can be sub
stituted for its use. Wool, linen and
silk are the competitors of cotton goods
and there is a long distance between
those articles and cotton goods, where
the raw material would not cost the
spinner more than 12 1-2 cents; if he
has to pay 15 cents for the cotton now
in the hands of the farmers. Those
who have seen fit to consistently and
persistently advise the farmers to turn
loose their cotton for prices less than
those fixed by the Association must
now answer the individuals and the
South who has been despoiled of mil
lions of dollars while following their
advice. The Southern Cotton Associa
tion wishes to fix a staple price for
cotton; this can only be accomplished
by the spinner dealing direct with the
Association. We stand ready to meet
the spinners whenever they desire it.
Stand by the Association; it has never
advised you to do anything that was
contrary to your interest; ignore the
advice of those who have only brought
loss to you and you will aid in returning
to the Southland millions of dollars of
which she has been unjustly robbed. It
must be demonstrated to the world
that the producers propose to fix the price
of their cotton. I appeal to the zealous,
intelligent and patriotic county officers
and the rank and file throughout this
State to carry on this fight with all the
zeal and energy that we are capable of.
We are not responsible for this fight;
wo entered into it for the purpose of
protecting our cotton, the price of
which was being forced down, without
any reason for it whatsoever, and
