Out look for Suppl of Great 3iils Not
Manchester. Eng., July 20.-(Cor
respondenice of the Associated Press)
--The outlook in regard to future sup
ply of raw cotton for the great Lan
cashire mills is serious, accoding to
Chairman Hutton, of the Council of
British Cotton Growing Associations.
Mr. Hutton says:
"The demands of the world for
cotton are going to increase, and par
ticularly in America, which country,
thanks to the war, is now getting a
very strong hold on export trade.
This means that. every year when sup
plies are short there is going to be a
scramble for cotton and we can be
sure that America will not go short,
and that Great Britain as the next
highest consumer, will be the greatest
sufferer. The situation is one to cause
the gravest anxiety. I do not think
one can exaggerate its seriousness.
Unless we can build up new supplies
in other parts of the world I can see
most serious losses facing the Lan
cashire cotton trade, and it may be
that Lancashire will permanently lose
a very large propirtion of our report
trade. If that should happen many of
our mills will have to close and a
large proportion of the population
"The Lancashire cotton industry is
mainly dependent on the export trade
--probably to the extent of four-lifths
of the machinery employed. It has to
ilcet the competition of the whole
world and in the past this has been
done by producing articles iliner and
superior than our competitors can
produce. For this we must have am
ple supplies of the longer, liner and
better <Lualities of cotton.
"IL ancaslhire is dependent on Ainer
ica for s:;.7 per cent. of the cotton re
qutaired for the spindles, which have
increased to sixty millions and looms
to SII,000 an1d as Atilerica n consuines
muerely. In the period of 10I0-1 90
Great BIritain took :G.:, per cent of
the Amnerican crop, but for the pe
riod 1!MI- 1915 it was only 25.1; per
eilt. This is aCotited for by the
greatly increased consumption on the
part of Alierica and if the cottoln
rade of the world is to be in a posi
tion to meet the natural increase in
the demand, an increased production
every year of at least 5.00,000 hales is
legarding the possibilities of cotton
grown within the BIritish enIpire, i r.
IMutton considers these are good, but
the war has set back the :ichemie for
increasing such growth in various
parts. India grows hardly any cotton
suitable to the L1a4ncashire trade;
Egypt produces the sort req uired, bti
in institlleient uiantites Uganda 'ot
toil is all that could ie desired, but
the trade recel Veil a severe handicap
by the war. Nigeria shows the best
possibhilities, with a production of 20,
l00 hales, but lere again the ditlicitlIy

Cannot be Converted.
State warehouse Commissioner John
L. McILaurin has written a letter to
"M1y Dear David," of the Yorkville En
(iuirer, patting hiln wise to the fact
that he (McIaurin) has once more sud
donly shifted his allegiance to Blease.
He says: "I had intended to vote for
Gov. Mlanning," But Cooper's candi
dacy caused a change of mind, if not
of heart, and he is now once again a
supporter of Blease. "I do not thipk
we will have an ideal government un
der 3lease * * * I did not vote for
Blease in 1912, but did in 1914 and
will do so this year. I thing he will
be a better governor than before as I
am sure he sees the folly of allowing
himself to be goaded by his enemies
into imprudences." That means that
\Ir. lMeLaurin endorses the same sort
of administration as Bllease gave the
State from 1911 to 1915. That tieans
he endorses the same sort of law en
forcement that the blind tigers and
gambling element of Charleston and
elsewhere in the State heartily wel
comes and ardently desires. That
means that Mr. McLaurin approves of
the lease dictum that no state law
should be enforced in a community if
a strong minority-even a minority
composed of the criminal element, as
in Charleston-objects to its enforce
ment. We had hopes of 31eaurin
that for the sake of the warehouse sys
tem, which is essentially a business
enterprise he would keep out of fac
tional lIitics and would not in this
campaign, be an active partisan of any
of the candidates for governor, but
would devote all of his time, talents
and energy to the devcloplent. and
perfection of the warehouse system.
Hiis otlice as warehouse commissioner,
is not ali issue in this campaign, as he
has more than two years yet to serve.

Men of all factions and all business

Ilease and of Cooper and of lies
Cminlps all need the State cotton Ware
house and have worked together to
make it a practical iusiness istru

enfranclhisemient. Neither Mr. Me 'Laui

house systemi a factioal issue, nor can
lie siccessfully use it, by specious rea
sc'ning, as a liacline to advance the
political fortunes of himself and his
