TO STOBE COTTON
(Giganti( Company Formed to Estena I
Over South, Buys In This State.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 1.-Arrange
mionts are practically complete for
the formation of a gigantic corpora- f
tion to combine and standardize a s
large .portion of the cotton compress- i!
log and warehousing facilities of the .J
South and to establish new ones on g
an unlimited scale throughout the cot- o
ton belt, effective Charleston, Colum- f
bia and Oreonville Announcement' t
of the undertaking was made today v
by Rufus R. Wilson, secretary of the
National Association of Cotton .Manu- r
facturers. Mr. Wilson is also presi- t
dent of the World Cotton conference r
which, at its recent meeting in New r
Orleans, declared adequate warehous
ing to be a "paramount necessity" in it
handling and distributing the Anion
can cotton crop. Identified 'with the t
undertaking are miny prominent
Southern and Eastern cotton spin-|t
ners, producers. brokers and bank
era. Arrangement already has been I
made, declaros Mr. Wilson, for ac
'uiring established properties worth
millions, including no fewer than 65f
The corporation in process of for
'nation will be known as the Union
Warehouse Compress. The organiza
tion is being perfected by the Union
Cotton Warehouse Organization cor
tioration which has had experts sur
vey the whole field of warehousing
and compressing of cotton and work
out plans of development that have
been approved by the backers of the
enterprise. Options have been taken
on scores of compresses and ware
houses as well as sites for new ones
In various localities of the SoutL.
where additional facilities are needed.
"It has long been -well known in the
cotton Ondustry," :saya' Mr. 'Wilson\
"that sufficient facilities already exist
to house most of the cotton offered
for storage. However. the allocation
of these warehouses is such that they
do not adequately serve the storage
needs of the producer, merchant an
spinners. They are not located with
respect to distribution so as to best
serve the needs of the trade. For this
reason much cotton that ought to be
stored is now kept in open' lots, streets
and on plantations with the' result
thait each year's crop suffers millions
of dollars worth. of loss from 'country
damage,' many of the existing ware
houses are .so poorly constructed and
carelessly operated that insurance
rates for cotton stored in them are
,abnormally high and receipts for
stored stocks are in many cases un
satisfactory collateral for bank loans.
"Many Southern bankers declare
they would rather loan money on cot
ton than on real estate but the
trouble has been and still.,M with the
character of the wat ehouse receipts
as evidence of the cotton's safety.

"Fully conversant with these con
ditions and the need for improving
-them both in the interest of the grow
er and spinner, a group of mcen con
erned from various angles -with the
cotton industry are organizing a cor
poration for the purpore of standard
izing warehouses in both the South
and the North."
Inasmuch as cotton warehousing
and compressing are allied opera
tions the Union 'Warehouse and Comn
press companies will enter extensive
ty into the compression of cotton with
the view of compressing as many bales,
as possible to an even density. High,
density presses will be installed in
those plants where such presses are
