A correspondent in Edgefield
County sonds us an annotated copy
of a cotton circular of Hubbard,
Bros. & Co., of Now York, dated
One paragraph reads:
In 1892 and 1895 it was thought
that the South had learned of its
ability to control prices by roduciig
the production and that it would
this moason purnsuo a similair policy.
Wo believc; it will, but tho mass of
the tr;do and outsido buyers would
like to som and read more evidence of
the success of the imovoment started
at Atlanta and Memphis to reduce
the cotton trea. They do not see in
the Southern pross tho same unani
mous expression of opinion that the
reduction will be advantageous to
the planter, or that it is the only
policy which can prevent lower prices
Our correspondent commonts:
"Move the press to unanimity if you
Another paragraph is as follows:
Will tho markets continue to move
toward a lower level, is the question
which now interests us all. The
answer will depend entirely upon
the action of the South. If it has
learned to produceo cotton prolitably
on-tho b!isis of 5 cents there will bo
no reduction in acroago and mor
chants and manufacturers will have
to admit, that their position is wrong.
It is the fear that it, will prove wrong
which is now weakoning prices, for it
is an old adage that "fears, not facts,
"Not 5 per cent. of the cotton
around mo is profitabloi now at 5
cents"is the annotation of our cor
A third and final paragraph is
Should it becomo evident during
the next (0) days that present pricos
are not profitable there will bo a
substantial reduction in the acreage
and the sale of fertilizers which will
lead to an active market. We be.
lievo the reported incroaso in the
whoat area in the South will be fol
lowed by an increased area in corn
and oats, and that little now land
will be cleared for cotton planting,
as we cannot yet believe that there is
any other logical co nclumsioni to be
reached when cotton is b)ringinig less
than the basis of live cents in the
interior. In t hie meantime, the pro0
blom for the South is to convince the
spinnling world thait it (1oes not in
tend to raise b)umper crops5 of cotton
at present prices. Until t his is ac
complhished t here will be small chance
of a perminanent ad(1vance in p)rices.
Our correspondent adds t.o this
the request: "Give your bost (effort.s
to p)rovoe these facts and you will
again ronder most val uable aid to
your many patrons atnd friends."
The same mail brings us a cotton
letter from Lathan, Alexander & Co.,
of Newv Yoi k, under the samiue date,
anrd it supplies the facts and thie ar
gumrent. We present it in fmnll:
1t seems to us that the most, vitally
important lesson for the South to
learn is that Over-plrodnmetion of cot
ton is seriously harmful to the ma
teorial p)rospority of that section.

Last yoar th total crop was 8,

Last year the amount of cotton

The planters shipped to mnarkot

On account of the large cropl andiu

of vital iml)portanice, not only to the
South, but the whole countr-y, that

If the planlter-s of the South. suffer

must share in it.
Tihe South cannot stand another
cotton crop of the saimo dimensions
as this year- H, without bringing abot
dlisastor and1( banki-uptcy -to plantor-s
and handlers of cotton, and relative
hairmi to thle genierial miercaniitilo in

Tl.he( price of cotton is imoro read(i

article of commierce, for- no commodi
ty 1s so sensitive to fluictuat.ionis, and
when ai superabundance is hianginig
over- the market, cotton trade in 1a11
its brianchies is adversely affected.
Cotton raising in this countr-y is
virtually a m uonoply-4Lwo thirds of
readily taken by buyers in foreign
countries, and the planters in the South
are justly entitled to a fair remunera
tion for their labor. An over-supply
is the only reason why they havo to
soll 6,000,000 to 7,000,000 bales of
cotton to foreign spinners, without
Tio cotton crop cant and should be
made tho most profitable in this
country. It is wbolly the planter's
fault, that such is not the caso, as
the figures in this lotter clearly show.
The cotton interest of overy kind,
everywhere, would prefer an advanc
ing market to a declining one, good
prices to poor ones, because trado in
all of its ramifications is (uickoned
thereby. Even the consumers of
cotton goods are so.slightly affected
by an advance of oven two or thro
cents per pound in the raw matorial
that they aro not unwilling that tho
plantor be well paid for his labor.
But if the planting interests of the
South continuo to incronso cotton
acreago year after year, continual
loss is inovitablo.
The moro fact that a large crop
has been planlted affects Ilho prien
adversely at once, and continuos to
affect it until the Crop has beel
marketed, and if the planters of t.ho
South would determino to largely

Tho material welfare of the South
is more dependent upon her cotton

with the planitors and cotton com

whether the value of this crop shall

nually increasing profit or a source
of disappointment and loss.
Nothing need be add-ad to this ex
hibit. Nothing that we can say
would increaso its force. Agreol'

all but ropes of sand-we must do
