DRUMMERS TO HELP FARMERS.
Movement Started to Raise Money for
Columbia, October 31.? A meeting of
traveling men was held at the Caldwcll
Hotel tonight, over which Mr. Harry
Calhoun presided, the object of the
meeting being to start a movement by
which the traveling men of the South
should assist the farmers to hold their
cotton for better prices.
It was proposed that fifteen thou
sand traveling men pledge themselves
to put up a thousand dollars each, and
to secure an additional thousand dollars
each, the sum thus raised to be loaned
the farmers on warehouse receipts at
six per cent.
This would mean a fund of thirty
thousand dollars, which would be suffi
cient to hold one million bales of cotton
at thirty dollars per bale, or six cents
There were a number of prominent
men present by invitation, including
Gov. Heyward, Col. George Johnstone,
Hon. Francis H. Weston, Hon. F. H.
Hyatt, Congressmen Lever, Finley and
Ellerbe, Mr. J. E. Wannamaker and
others, most of whom made speeches.
There was a large crowd of traveling
men present. Several of the traveling
men expressed themselves enthusiasti
cally in favor of the scheme, and it
was proposed to urge the matter by
wire upon the traveling men through
the T. P. A. and U. C. T. organiza
A RECORD OF BLOOD.
Since July 1st 95 Homicides Have
Occurred in South Carolina.
The frequency of homicides in South
Carolina is simply appalling. During
the seven days ending with last Satur
day there were reported in the daily
papers fourteen homicides, that were
committed in the State during the
week, and nine other cases of assault
with deadly weapons, shooting, etc.
During tho nine weeks preceding last
Saturday there were fifty-four homi
cides committed in this State, and re
ported in the daily papers.
Since July 1 last, when we began to
keep a careful record of reported kill
ings in South Carolina, there havo been
ninety-five homicides reported.
It has been a common remark con
cerning homicides in South Carolina
that the larger numher of them xverc
ordinary "nigger killings." In the
ninety-five cases which have occurred
since the first of July this has not been
true. Of the dead men fifty-one were
whites and forty-four were negroes.
Of the slayers, hy a singular coinci
dence, the figures are just reversed -
fifty-one negroes and forty-four whites
having killed men. ? L. J. Bristow, in

"PROTECT THE COTTON MARKET.'
Southern Cotton Association Officials
Issue an Address.
The following has been issued by
President Harvie Jordan and Secretary
Will H. Wood, of the Southern Cotton
Headquarters Southern Cotton Asso
ciation, Atlanta, October 23. 1907.?
The United States, and especially the
South, must depend upon the present
cotton crop to protect the financial situ
ation and maintain values this season.
The variation of one cent a pound in
the price of cotton means a loss or a
gain of sixty millions of dollars in the
currer -y of the country. The present
fight for the maintenance of a high
level of prices for spot cotton must be
made on the broad and businesslike
principles advocated by the Southern
Cotton Association, which appeals for
the active co-operation and united ef
forts of all the people, no matter what
their business or profession. The cot
ton growers all over the South arc do
ing their level best to hold back the
staple from an already artificially de
pressed market. Tbey cannot be ex
pected, single-handled and alone, to
meet and successfully defeat the organ
ized brain and capital of the entire civ
ilized world, embraced in the spinner,
buyer and speculate. It is the clear
duty of every banker, reliant, and
other professional or bush: a interest
in the South favorable to die mainte
nance of high prices to line up squarely
by the side of the growers in the pres
ent struggle and render such financial
assistance and encouragement as will
enable the growers to win. Spot cot
ton is too low, and is being artificially
depressed by manipulation and misrep
resentation. The financial troubles in
Wall street are purely local, and due
almost entirely to over-speculation and
the floating of valueless securities by
some of the banks and trust companies.
If the advice of the Southern Cotton
Association is adopted, and the present
determination of the farmers to market
the crop slowly is adhered to, the finan
cial situation in the South will remain
solid and secure. We hereby call upon
every business interest in the South to
rally to the present holding movement*
It is the only plan that will win and
force the price of cotton to advance.
The price of yarns and cotton fabrics
is abnormally high, and the demand for
cotton goods practically unlimited. The
price of spot cotton under existing
trade conditions is abnormally low, and
the supply of the raw material will
undoubtedly be deficient from the pres
ent crop to meet the heavy demand of
consumption during the next twelve
Hold fast, and if any selling is done
let the movement t > market be slow.
Under this plan the prices advocated
by the Association will be realized.
