The following from Hoke Smith'
speech before the cotton grower:
association in Macon is taken fror
the Atlanta News:
"The cotton crop will this yea
bring a not cash profit to the plant
era of this section larger than eve
before. It will do more. It wil
furnish a volume of money for in
vestment belonging to the people o
seven States and two territories
which should give wealth and strengtl
to every line of busineFs and maki
possible the growth of many noede
manufacturing enterprises that wil
use the varied raw materials to b:
found in the South.
"Ton cents cotton has come, nol
only to benefit the planter, but t(
stimulate the development of mater
ial resources not yet handled ank
"Daring the past one hundre
j ears the cotton crop was sold foi
$15,000,000,000. The United State.
has received from the export of cot
ton during this same period$1 1,000,
"Our lint cotton, in addition to it:
enormous sale abroad, has also fur
nished the raw material for the man
ufacturing industries that have en
riched the New England States. I
is today furnishing the raw materia
for the already prosperous and rap
idly growing mills of the South, an(
it promises to our people from man
ufacturing alone a return as greal
in the future as that heretofore ob
taeind in Now England. How en
couraging is this prosp-ct! We car
fully realize it when we remembei
that $00,000,000 of values are added
annually to American lint cotton by
its manufacture abroad.
"The manufactories of the world
used fiftj years ago 2,500,000 bale(
of cotton. Last year they used ar
amount variously estimated at fron
10,000,000 to 18,000,000 of bales,
The enormous increase demandec
for the fabrics made out of lint cot.
ton placed the consumption of cotton
goods far ahead of cotton's three riv
"The rivals are wool, flax and
silk. If we seek the reason for th(
success which has attended the in.
creased use of cotton goods we car
readily find it. The price at whicE
lint cotton has been sold, coupled
with the development of machinery
suited for its manufacture, has led
to the production of cotton goods am
warm as those made from wool, am
cool as those made from flax, and
more beautiful than those made fron:
"While cotton today brings 1(
cents, it has only been three yearm
since the crop was selling at 5 eeni
a ound. What are the elementm
whic have caused tnis variance in
price?P The three natural rivals of
cotton have had but little effect, be.
cause at 10 cents a pound for lint
*cot.tpn, wool, flax and silk cannot be
~produced to make successftul compe
~tition. Recognizing the laws of de.
mnand and supply, we must see thai
the depreciation in the prices ,of cot.
ton has been due to a production ol
the staple in excess of the demanc
for manufactured goods. A knowl.
edge of the supply of cotton and oJ
the demand for cotton goods foi
consumption will enable the pro.
ducer to tell at the time of the yea,
when cotton is picked the price al
which lint cotton should sell
Another cause which has facilitated
the depreciat ion of prices at th:
time cotton left the hands of the
'planter has been the unbusiness-like
'plan of selling cotton.
"More than 70 per cent. of thi
cotton which is used in the great cot.
ton mills of the world, is raised ir
our section. The nmils run during
twelve months. They need the cot
ton as much in July as they do ir
December. The plan of selling ha:
disregarded the time of consump
tion. Instead of handling the croj
so that it would be sold from monti
to month .during the year, as th
mills required it for use, it has beer
the pract[ee of the plar.ters in th
South to rush their cotton on th
market during the period limited t
two months, fofcing its purchaso b,
speculators, rather than holding th
crop until the consumers or mil
ownors came after it.
"I ai thankful to say that east 0
the Mississippi river during the l)pre
ont year the planters have been in
r atrmed as to the extent of the ero]
and its to the world's demand fo
r their cotton. Realizing that it wa
worth at least 10 cents a pound o
- more, they have declined to sell i
C for less. They havo received 1R
cents for what they have sold.
"By the co operation of the mor
chants and the hankers they hav
been enabled, so soon as the buyer
succeeoded in depressing the price, t<
take their cotton off the market, an<
as a rcsult they today see the pric(
of cotton going back to the figure
at which it sold during the month o
September, and I have no doubt th(
balance of the cotton crop thus caret
for by our farmers will bring then
over 10 cents a pound. This price
however, could hardly have been re
alized had the farmers raised 1,000,.
000 bales of cotton. Then with i
surplus of cotton in sight the buy
ers might have afforded to wait unti
the sellers were compelled to disposw
of the crop, and when the supply o
cotton, 'whether raised from foreign
fields or from our own, exceeds the
volume which the mills can manu
facture, or exceeds the volume,
when manufactured, the mills car
sell, then a depreciation of price
must necessarily follow, and ou:
planters will find that they have de
creased their income by incrensing
their labors, and that they have re
ceived a less return for a largc
amount of cotton than they wouli
have received had the crop been
"There are, therefore,-three ques
tions of vital importai-oe which af
foot the price of next year's cottor
crop. They are, How much will tb<
mills of the world consume in 1902
How much lint cotton will the bal
ance of the world produce for other
domestic consumption in 1901? Hoiv
much will we produce in the Souti
in 1901 ?"
Mr. Smith took up the history o
cotton culture and discussed it in at
In 1802, representatives of thirty
five counties 'inet to discuss menA
ures by which the loss of the Ameri
can crop could be supplied, and i
great stimulus was given to cottor
culture in India, Egypt, Africa anI
Brazil. In two years the suppliei
from these countries were greatlh
increased, but soon after the wai
the South regained control of th<
India, he said, is the greatest pro
ducer of cotton next to tihe Southerr
States. The crop in 1899 amounted
to 3,000,000 bales, while that ol
Egypt was 050,000 hales. Sinc<
1880, Russia has given attention t<:
the cultivation of cotton in Turko
stan from American seed, and the
crop haa reached 300,000 bales. 1r
1895 Japan produced 75,000 hales
In 1895 Brazil raised 300,009 balei
and exported 150,000. It is esti
mated that the lands of Brazil couli
produce>40,000,000 inAes annually
China exports a small amount o1
cotton to Japan.
Mr. Smith argued that climatic
conditions gave the Southern Statem
an advantage over other countries ir
the production of cotton, but calloi
attention to the efforts made by
other countries to .develop the in
dustry, particularly in India and
E~gypt, and the German experimeni
in Africa. He said the consumptior
of cotton goods had increased 70(
per cent, in fifty years and predicted
a demand of 80,000,000 bales ir
He said the state department o:
agriculture should be diligenit in col
looting information about cotton tc
the end tbat before planting tb(
Ifarmers may know tihe probabh
One of the best pointe- made b3
IMr. Smith was this:
"Only when cotton is ma4e a sur
plus crop is the producer safe
against the vicissitudes of the mar
ket. Only when the farmers pro
duco their own sipplies. ii tihere an
y assurince that the priceo of cotton
a will not Ie depressed by an over
I produc.ion in our section.

time, also, 3 per cont. of the entire

The point involved was w%-hietlier
or not a loaso conitract, which did not

Act of Congres!4, is admissible as
evidence. The supromo Court ruled
that Congress, while it has the right
to levy taxos through a Stamp Act,
such as was passed by Congass, has
not the right to prescribe rules of
evidence for Stato Courts, which
would be cancelled if a document not

Some unpublished letters of Miss
Louisa M. Alcott, recently brought
to light, effectually correct a popu1.
lar fallacy as to the original of
"Laurie," in the famous "Little Wo

has been thought to have beeni
Laurie's prototype, but those lot ter-s
prove that it to be a mistake. Alfred
WVhitmnan, a Kansas man, whlo wvas

in fact, the Laur-io of her delightful
story, and to him Miss Alcott wvrote
some of the most charming, revealing
letters that ever came from her ponJ.
