lteasons Why South Carolina Farm
ers Should Hold Down Crop.
Clemson College, March 26.-South
Carolina farmers are being strongly
advised by V. W. Long, State agent
of demonstration and superintend
cut of the extension division of
Clemson College, not to plant an acre
more in cotton than they planted last
year. This advice is based by Mr.
Long on reports received at Washing
ton which show that, at the present
rate, this year's crop will be an enor
mous one and the ofice of demonstra
tion work at Clemson college is has
tening to urge the farmers of this
state not to follow the lead of other
sections in what appears almost cer
tain to be a losing policy.
Reports which have been pouring
into Washington from many parts of
the South show that Southern farm
ers, acting on the strength, it is be
lieved of the good prices received on
the last crop, and not content with
holding the crop at this figure and
receiving equally good or only bi liht
ly lower prices, intend to tincrease
their acreage all along the lI n.
'T'hough it is too ('aly for definite es
timates, it appears probable the crop
raised will be too large for the tmar
ket to bear, provided the present. po
icy of the farom ers continu es.
"'The time when everybody else is
raisinag a lot of cotton is just the time
for its not to raise a lot of it," said
Mr. ILong in discussing the situation.
TiIs principle holds true in any bus
Iness. We are not urging the farmer
to cut his cotton acreage, for we wish
to proceedl conservatively. Blut what
we are urging upon hin and urging as
planting any more cotton that h
planted last year. Let him put the
,sme amount of land in cotton again
if he wishes -to, and, with the con
stantly improving conditilous of soil
fertility in the state, it is likely that
we shall make more 1 Otton than last

that it was the part. of wisdom for
South ('arolina plant"rs, especially
those in the lower part. of the state,
to hegin a plicy of ret renchmient In

It veis to be expected that there
woul he opposit.ilon to tie Duke

grai lplan. a. fact whic in it:wlf
is stllieient to ensure the opositon
of little minds. The plan, if carried
out, will do much to promote the Ii

I am a candidate for governor be
cause I feel that I can serve my state
by carrying forward this movement
with which I began my career in 1890.
The political part of it never appealed
to me at any time with half the force
that the industrial possibilities did.
My Impatience with this phase of the
movement often led me into antago
nism with its political leaders.
Aly nearnest endeavor will be if I
aim elected to so shape political af
fairs In South Carolina as to provide
safety to future generations from a
split. among our white people which
is inevitable when class is eternally
arrayed against class.
The next torward movement in this
state should be in the line of indus
trial development. The masses have
remained unsatisfied hecause mte
political agitation has not and never

The farmer's product is still priced
by the buyer, and what he consumes
by the seller. 'Tiis will continue un
til a proper system for marketing the
cotton crop Is provided by law.
White labor is leaving the farms
for the imill and workshop. This
makes more coinpetition between la
borers in the towns; swells the ranks
of non-producers. and raises ever
higher the cost of living. The only
remedy is to increase the prolits on
the farm by cutting out the middle
men and speeul ators who absorb pro
lits but produce nothing to either feed
or ioiite ni:utikinid.
If I can turn some of the energy
now devoted to politics into the (e
velopmcunt. an(t conservation of the
natural resou rees of our11 state, I can
find no bet ter field for the use of
brain and body.
