Fifty years ago in the parlor of
Mrs. T. C. Doremus in New York,
wh?re was organized the first worn
mi's missionary society to receive a
charter, the great missionary move
ment was heguu. Since then the work
lias grown Bteadily year by year. In
1910, under the influence of the won
derful hook, "Western Women In East
ern Lauds," Mrs. Henry W. Peabody,
chulrman of the Central Committee on
Unit?d Study, co icolved the idea of
a celebration which should stretch
from "shore to shore and recount
God's goodness" throughout these fif
ty years of woman's work. Accord
ingly Jubilee Meetings were begun at
Oakland, California, on October 12,
1910, and spreading across the conti
nent, have already been held in thirty
of the largest cities of the country,
and in many smaller cities 1 well.
This great Missionary Jubilee
should prove a wonderful factor In In

FOOLISH THE FARMER.
The failure/of the market to respond
to the government's August report on
cotton, Indicating deterioration in the
crop, has caused no little surprise
among those not aware that by others
than the planters these government
reports are not trusted. By "the trade"
they are usually discounted, for "the
trade" has methods of its own for
ascertaining the condition of the crop.
It Ii.is come to pass that no one trusts
the government reports and they are
utilized only as an excuse not accent
ed as a reason.
But it may be still more surprising
to our cotton planters to learn that in
other sections of the country the fact
that the reports gathered by the gov
ernment are sent in by men who are
themselves interested in the cotton
crop is taken as the foundation for
doubting the Impartiality of the re
ports. This comment from the Spring
field Republican ,tho well-posted New
England paper ,is a case in point:
"But It is worth noting that hard
ly anybody Is taking either the private
or the government reports at their
face value. The cotton market responds
feebly. It is a sensational develop
ment, but the market refuses to act
sensationally. And the reason is that
the concerted movement among the
cotton-growing interests to hold back
the crop and force higher prices has
destroyed confidence in these reports
of condition. 'We hnve even had the
Southern representatives in congress
giving their Influence to this move
ment?tho-A^ei; men who have been
loudest in denouncing the trusts and
demanding that all restraints of trade,
however reasonable or Inconsequen
tial, shall be branded as criminal un
der the anti-trust act. The Dallas
(Texas) News has something worth
quoting on this whole business:
" 'If anyone should question whether
a nice sense of propriety is shown by
those congressmen who join In urging
farmers by concerted action to sell >
none of their cotton for less than 13
cents a pound, we would say that the
question is at least debatable. Espec
ially would that be true If those giving
the advice have, in other circum
stances, proclaimed the conviction that
no restraint of trade can be reason
able or defensible.'
"And both the government and these
private crop-reporting agencies have
to rely for their information as to cot
ton conditions on men closely related
to the planting industry. How much
are their reports worth when made
under the stimulus of this concerted
movement, helped along by the politi
cal leaders of the South, to obtain
! higher prices than the trade would
We can now see the mischief re
sulting from such arbitrary Interfer
ences with the natural laws of trade.
In this case there Is the strong possi
bility of a reactionary effect more
damaging to the cotton growers than
the trade laws they would set aside.
The crop may hnve been damaged
quite as badly as represented, but the
trude has been made skeptical and
cotton may thus sell for some time at
lower prices than the actual conditions
warrant. The .lesson should not be
lost on the cotton belt. These agita
tions to hold cotton for this or that
high price never In the long run can
help the planters, and may, as In this
case .hurt them."
Those leaders who have perennially
urged upon the cotton planters to hold
cotton for a given price have never
seemed to understand that If their ad
vice should be generally acted upon
the fnct would be known to the con
sumers as quickly and r.s accurately
as to the producers; .he number of
hales held is easily ascertained, and It
Is the available supply, not the supply
In the market, which fixes 'he price of
any commodity not cotton alone. Fol
lowing the present agitation for t'te
holding of cotton, therefore, we havo
just such comments as the above, in
dicating that the movement Is not only
well understood but that Its effect Is
being discounted just nb the effect of
the government crop reports is dis
To hold for a given price Is at best
merely a temporary relief from low
prices; a solid organization, compactly
knit together, might he able to secure
the holding of so great a proportion of
the crop as to effect the price for the
time being, were the mills to run short
hut there is no such organization, and
(he mills are not likely to run short.
The truth of the matter Is that our
cotton farmers have for years been fed
on economic syllnbub, which they have
swallowed with avidity. It tastes
sweet but is lacking in sustenance.
Tho farmers need to study for them
selves. They need to realize that the
price of any commodity, not cotton
alone, ennnot bo permanently In
creased nor advantageously Increased
temporarily, without Increasing the
domnnd for that commodity. A more
general use for cotton goods, better
markets and more markets?that Is
what Is needed to keep tho prlco of
cotton at 15 cents or thereabouts. And
that is why such Intelligent mill man
- ^ I-J-^JLL-J-J-^?L!JJ?
agers aa Lewis W. Parke.' are c ft ml id
enough to say that high prices for the
raw material cannot Injure the manu
facturer of cotton goods, for there can
be no high prices for the raw material
unless there is a demand for the man
ufactured goods. Consequently, the
interests of the cotton grower and the
manufacturer are mutual, and those
interests are to be mutually served by
extending the use of cotton goods the
world over and securing a better price
for the supply by increasing the de
mand. To hold two million bales this
year is to put on the market next year
two million more bales than is raised
next year, and what is the advantage
In that? To ndvertise a short crop is
to assert that the man who might have
received for his labor the price of two
bales will receive tht price of only one
bale, and what is the advantage in
thnt to the man who loses the worth
of his labor?
