?A PLANTER'S SOUND PLAK. *
In The State this morning Dr. Wade
Stackhouse of Dillon grower of 1,800
hales of cotton a year, presents a, plan
for checking the decline of cotton and
causing a strong, sound recovery to
profitable prices. It comes nearer con
taining the essentials to a successful
movement for that purpose than any
suggestions wc have heard.
The united effort of a large number
of farmers, supported by a powerful
financial agency, is the general form
of organization that has seemed to
The State necessary to a successful
cotton-holding movement. Large busi
ness capacity and high reputation of
the men undertaking large business
affairs, are of course, the only safe
guard against failure, the only assur
ance of confidence?and in a move
ment in which tens of thousands of
farmers must cooperate In business,
confidence In the lenders is of first
Granting the present crop to be 14,
000,000 bales, Dr. Stackhouse proposes
to withdraw one-fourth?3,500,000?
from the market; to have a "cotton
holding company" in eacli State with
Officers of known business ability; to
have a strong hank in each state se
lected as trustee to hold warehouse
receipts in trust for the cotton-hold
ing company; to have each farmer
storing cotton make a legal contract
with the holding company, binding
himself not to sell for less than 12
cents on penalty of forfeiture of the
difference between that price and the
price for which be sells. The cotton
to !>e stored in trust until August 15,
Then, with only 10,500,000 bales
purchasable below 12 cents, and will)
much of that held off the market by
farmers to whom this movoment
would give hope and backbone, there
is little doubt of a quick recovery of
prices. And as selling would be slow
on a rising market, with weak holders
already squeezed out. the advance
would be steady and would bold. The
farmers, seeing this amount of cotton
held, would reduce average; they
would at least have ample warning to
Mr. Stackhouse proposes that Fair
week he made the occasion for (he or
ganization of South Carolina farmers
for better prices for 1912, and also
stmgosts that those put in chni'gc Of
the business of such organization be
men who are neither office-holders nor
olllcc-seokers. and whose busin ss ca
pacity has been proved by their
works. Moth are capital suggestions,
it would be w mi to secure the attend
ance from other cotton States of as
many men as possible who are alive
to tln> need for a strong organization
of real farmers and real business men
to turn the tide in favor of the South.
"if anything can be done," says Dr.
Stackhouse. "It should be (lone
quickly." Most assuredly. V\i to this
writing the cotton-holding campaign
has proved a disastrous failure. While
attempts have been made to frighten
off the bears by shouting loudly and
making faces at them, cotton has
turmbled steadily $.">. $10. $1.".. and now
$20 a hale. The poorer the farmer,
the greater he has suffered. No won
der he thinks lie is without friends;
there has been nothing effective done
in bis behalf: no rallying point pro
sided; no business plans for meeting
this emergency that was bound to
arise , sooner or later. Those who
should be masters of the situation are
helpless and without resources in time
of crisis, and the penalty is the loss
to farmers of scores of millions of
dollars. And every man, woman and
child in the South is concerned.
For years The Stale has begged
spokesmen for the cotton growers to
adopt the policy of dwelling upon thi
great amount of cotton needed for Ihc
world's supply instead of attempting
to bolster the market by minimi/big
the probable production. lint that
palpably sound suggestion has boon
Ignored, in spite of the fact that
claims of small crops do not even de
ceive the fanners, as is evidenced by
the rush to sell in the past 60 days
on a tumbling market. If it bad been
hammered Into the'minds of every
body, North and South, and especially
the cotton growers, that the trade of
the world needs l.">,000,000 bales of
American cotton of the 1911 crop,
the bears could not have brought
about the panic to sell at a miserably
small margin of prollt.
For the sake of farmers, and for
the sake of the South, we sincerely
hope strong broad, patriotic men will
take hold of the situation right now,
pull the farmers out of tho hole they
are In, and provide protection for the
[future against such slaughter of
Southern values as has been lately ex
