TO HOLD COTTON
Address Issued by Organization of
Sumtcr Count)?Higher Price Is
In an address issued to the farm
ers of South Carolina a committee
of the Sumter County Farmers' union
urges the holding of cotton until a
higher price is obtained. The address
is prepared by a committee consisting
of E. W. Dabbs, president of the State
Farmers' union, and .1. M. Brogdon
nnd S. N. Welch.
It is as follows:
"To the farmers and all the busi
ness interests that are affected by
the price of cotton:
"The Sumter County Farmers' un
ion at its last meeting unanimously
directed us as a committee to call
your attention to the serious condi
tion that confronts us in the outlook
for low prices for this crop of cotton.
Thirty or forty days ago cotton sold
In Sumter for 15 1-2 cents (spot).
Today a holder who would not then
sell was glad to get 12 1-2 cents.
These are actual sales. What has
brought about such a slump in this
short time after cotton had held
steady for nine or ten months at 14
to 15 cents? They say because there
is a prospect of over 14,000,000 bales.
Is It not more because the world,
judging by the past, thinks it can
stampede the farmers and the mer
chants, and buy below 10 cents be
fore Christinas. The men who are
predicting such prices are working
with might and main to bring about
10-ccnts cotton by telling their farm
er friends that the crop is the larg
est on record. 'You ought to sell as
fast as you can, for cotton Is bound
to go lower' Apparently not knowing
that this Is the very way to bring
about a lower level of prices.
"Now we have no quarrel with tha
Northern and foreign spinner who
wants low-priced cotton. It is only a
part of his business to get the raw
material at the lowest possible price,
and it is also part of his business to
sell bis finished product at the high
est possible price. Hut how any
Southern men. even owners of mill
stock, can wish to see low pr'ecs for
cotton, or can in any way give aid
and encouragement to the enemy by
joining in the hue and cry that
'prices arc bound to go lower,' Is past
our comprehension. Every busiuess
man and every cotton mill In the
South Is Inevitably bound up In the
general prosperity of this section.
The Southern Mills.
If Southern mills would seek out
new markets for the manufactured
goods, and learn from the successes
of foreign mills to cater to the de
mands of the world's trade In the fa
brics the world wants, put up In the
kind of packages the world wants,
they could join bands with all the
business Interests of the South and
fix and maintain the highest possible
price for cotton and cotton goods.
"That the mills will not do this Is
abundantly proven by the history of
recent years wjien our own mills kept
out of the market while the farmer
was falling over himself to sell bis
cotton, and later paid more for their
stocks than the foreigners, with
freight and other charges added We
may expect the same thing to hap
pen this fall. Hence wo leave tin?
Southern spinners out. of the count.
"Hut we do call on ?very merchant
and every fertilizer manufacturer and
every banker and every railroad man
to Join with the Farmers' union in
urging every farmer to hold back his
cotton until (!:<? world is willing to
pay a living price for it. Such a cours<
can hurt no one, and it will help ev
eryone; the merchant by giving him
cash customers for his goods, (ho for
llll/.er plants by Increased use of tholr
goods, the bank;; by larger deposit
the railroads by larger fr< Ighls on i
more Imported goods than our people
will have the money t'i buy, and ovory
profession and calling by the Increaso
in the circulating medium brought
about by the larger flow of foreign
gold in all tii<' urt< rles of commerce, j
What It Means to r'arillOI'S.
"There can be no quMtlotl that this
will be the result of higher prices
for cotton. It it wero not true, from
whence comes tin- present prosperity
of the South? It is 15 cents cotton
that has done it. As surely as the
sun rises in the east and sets in the
west, just so surely will there be
stagnation and want, distress and bit
terness. ;n thousands of homes in the
South, and they will not all be farm
ers' homes. If we let this crop of cot
ton sell for 10 cents or lens.
"With the world's stocks of COltOTI
almost depleted, with the automobile
tire Industry alone taking hundreds
of thousands of bales of cotton an
nually. Increased consumption on
every ?ldo, this crop CM) bo marketed
at 14 and 15 cents per pound just as
easily as last year's crop was. if we
but bold out for it. This is not mere
ly our opinion, fellow farmers, but it
Is the opinion of as shrewd business
men as the ones who tell you that
cotton will go lower. Besides there's
many a slip twixt the cup and the
lip,' .and the drought W not yet hrok?
en up; in other sections the young
crop can not make a half yield un
der most favorable conditions. And
all of it has to run the gauntlet of
excessive rains, if they ever start,
and of the many insee* pests, and cli
matic changes that make a late crop
"In conclusion your committee
would urge, with all the insistence of
calm and deliberate Judgment, that
every one who can do so hold his
cotton off the market either In his
own strength, or with the assistance
of his creditors and tho banks. Pick
it dry. gin It dry, put the bales away
under shelter dry. And if you must
borrow money on it, do not borrow
more than 25 or 30 dollars a bale and
for not less than six months. Thirty- 1
day cotton loans and loans close up to
the market value are worse than sell
ing outright. We call on all the
unions in the cotton belt to join us
In this light. Shut down on cotton i
now and for the next HO days and the
fight Is won. Paper contracts do not
