The Southern Colton Growers Asso?
ciation may have had tbe facts before
it to warrant the demand for 15 cents
K as the minimum price for cotton, but
' tn our opinion the cotton growers
would be satisfied with a less nrice,
and the higher the minimum price is
placed the greater indncement there is
offered to disloyal farmers to break
away from the association, plant larger
crops and depend on the association
holding np the price abov* 10 or 12
cents until they can unload their crop.
To us it seems that it would have been
wisfer to nave adhered to the demand
for ll cents as the minimum, while
exerting every influence to keep down
the acreage to aten million bale basis,
which would have rendered absolutely
certain a price of at least ll to 12
cents average for the crop. With a
.ton million bale crop the law of sup?
ply and demand will fix the price, and
it wi?l not be necessary for the farm
-ers to cany over the surplus, for there
would be JJ o surplus.

If Sumter has an ordinance against

WHOLESALE DRUG COMPANY.
The Establishment of a Concern of
That Character Practically Assured.
Mr. L. B. Phillips, who has been
engaged until recently in the retail
drug business in Darlington, has been
in this city tor several days for the
purpose of looking over the field and
kto ascertah^ the advantages that Sum?
ter offers as a location of a wholesale
j drug house. When Mr. Phillips sold
his retail business in Darlington his
purpose was to se<*k a larger field
where he could establish a wholesale
business and one of the first places he*
had in mind was Sumter. However,
before he had closed up his business
in Darlington he received an offer to
take charge of a newly established
wholesale drug company in Wilming
ton, N. C. He went to Wilmington to
investigate the matter, and after ma?
ture consideration declined the offer,
prefering to come to this city and if
the conditions were favorable to or?
ganize a company'nere.
Mr. Phillips has been so well pleas?
ed with the conditions here and with
the reception his proposed enterprise
has met with that it is almost a cer?
tainty that within the next few days a
charter will be applied for and the
company organised with a capita!
of $25,000. Mr. Phillips himself will
take a large block of the stock and he
has aiready had offers of subscription
from Sumter men to a sufficient
amount to make him confident that by
a canvass all the stock can be placed
Mr. Phillips has been engaged in the
drug business for many years, both as
a retail druggist and as a salesman for
wholesale houses. He understands
the business from bottom to top and
is capable of making the proposed en?
terprise a success. And he will show
his faith in it by investing his own

At the recent meeting of the Sumter
Ministerial Association it was decided
to discontinue the usuai "Union Ser?
vice." It was with reluctance that
this decision was reached, as alisare
desirous to receive the associations
which this union of congregations in
p-.vice to God offers. But on account
of the fact that it is no ionger possible
to accommodate the several congrega?
tions in one house of worship this de?
cision was made. It'.'ls desired that in
some way the spirit of the Union ser?
vice be maintained. T. B. Epting,
