Columbia, Sept. 21.?Cotton at
?35 or 40 cents a pound before an
other year is "'entirely within the
bounds of reason," according to J.
Clifton Rivers, warehouse commis
sioner, in a statement issued yes
Mr. Rivers urges to farmers to
go slow in offering their cotton for
?sale as he expects a gain of from
$25 to $50 a bale within a few
weeks. ' .
;In discussing: the general situa
tion, Mr. Rivers made the follow
ing statement :~
"Knowing that it is not good
policy to advise people concerning
the future prices of cotton,* I have
refrained so far this year from ap
pearing* in the -public prints, but
conditions have forced themselves*
upon us, and in the face of a mar
ket steady and strong, with the
sale" of Texas cotton at the-rate
of -?0,t)O0 bales per day, together
with an industrial ?? situation, the
like of Tvhich at marketing time
the cotton belt has never experi
enced, it is time/for somebody to
sit up and take notice:
\ "Cotton with all this tirade of
selling and violent bearish cir*
cumstauces has remained steady at
a price around 22 cents per
pound; therefore, those who have
studied the situation are convinced
that as soon as the supply begins
to diminish and.the industrial sit
uation has a prospect' of settling,
a great deal higher prices than at
present will be realized for spot
"It, therefore, behooves every
farmer who has a.bale of cotton to
go slow in offering it for sale, as
a few weeks, in the opinion of the
writer, will show a gain of $25 to
$50 per bale in the amount rea
lized from such sale. Store your
cotton in a state warehouse-and get
a receipt issued by the state and
relieve yourselves of your liabili
ties and watch your product in
crease in value shortly by leaps and
bounds, at ? minimum cost. It ft
entirely within the bounds of rea
son to predict that cotton will
bring 35 to 40 cents per pound be
fore another year, and this in
crease in value should be turned
into the hands of the farmers rath
er than into the hands of the cot
ton speculators. Sell just as lit
t3e cotton at present prices as you
possibly can and store and hold
for a few weeks and realize the
profit, which in my" opinion * and
in the opinion of dthers who have
studied the situation; will be a'great
increase over the present price."
Jackson, Cai, Sept. IS.?All fo*
ty-seven of the miners entombed

Women at the Polls -
CNews and Courier)
In Clarendon County, where 160
women were enrolled at the Wood
row Wilson box, the vote in the
second primary last Tuesday stood:
Blease 19, McLeod 107. In the city
of Sumter, where there was an en
rollment of 1,150 men and 529 wo
jmen, a total of 1679?the vote cast
[last Tuesday totaled 1.498, all but
174 votes being cast, the vote stand
ing: Blease 223, McLeod 1,275.
It would be very difficult, prob
jably impossible, to determine with
any accuracy just how many wo
men voted in the second prlmary
on Tuesday. Any estimate
as to how they voted would he
guesswork .pure and simple. Never
theless we-think'that it can be as
serted with conviction that in this
ejection the influence of the wo
man vote.was decidely wholesome.
Ih may be credited with having giv
en us one of the quietest campaigns
South Carolina has ever had, more
free of mudslinging than any other
campaign of like importance and
fundamental interest. The pres
ence of the women at the polls was
beneficial at many places also.
There is no possible question that
the women of South Carolina, the
great majority Of them, not only
did not want the vote, but were
opposed to having it trust upon
them. This done, however, a great

Chicago. Sept. 3 9,?Responsibil
ity for the raHroad shop crafts
strike was Charged to the Asso
ciation of Railroad Executives by
B. M. Jewell, head of the strikers
in .answering Attorney General
Daugherty's injunction bill today.
He did not appear in person but
his attorneys read Into the record
a 28-page affidavit in which Mr.
Jewell recited what he considers"
the causes of the strike,"detailed!
the history of various unsuccess
ful peace conferences and declar
ed the union leaders had never j
' He said that, since August 2,
when the strikers accepted Presi
dent Karding's second peace pro
posal the railway executives have.I
maintained a lockout.
"To all intents and purposes'
Donald R. Richberg, attorney forj
the defense said', interrupting the,j
reading of the affidavit, "the strike
ended August 2, when-the men told
the president they accepted his]
plan of settlement. After that it J
was a lockout."
Mr. Jewell said he had .been ad
vised by counsel that the railroads i
had no legal right under the rules j
of the United States Railroad Labor
Board to deny bis men their former.,
seniority rights when they resume!
The defense attorneys preceded
the Jewell affidavit with the in
troduction of 89 injunctions ob
tained by various railroads "against
strikers oh their lines. They con
tended that these local .injunctions
gave sufficient guarantee against
violence and that a nation-wide re
straining order' was unnecessary.
, Assistant Attorney General Crime
objected that the government had
the right to ask injunctions to pre
vent the destruction of interstate
commerce and interruption in de
livery of the mails.
The causes leading up to. the
strike as the strikers see them
date back to 1920 according to the
Jewell affidavit.. At that time the
labor committee of the Railway
Executives Association, headed by
President Gray, of the Union Pa
cific adopted, a report favoring
steps to organize regional - adjust
ment boards as provided by the
Transportation act. W. W. Atter
bury, vice president of the Penn
sylvania, presented a minority re
port" ih opposition.
The majority report was rejected
by the association and Mr. Atter
I bury was named to succeed Mr*
Gray chairman, of the labor
committee. This, he said, was re
I garded by the employees as the be
ginning of a campaign, to destroy
j the effectiveness of the employes
j organization's and the United States
! Railroad Labor Board, .
On January 31. 1921, the affidavit
continues, Mr. Atterbury made a
peremptory demand before the la
bor hoards Sot? abrp^at'qn of fthe
national agreements made during
jthe war.. The agreements were
(abrogated and disputed rules re
ferred back to the principals; when
they were unable to agree the
board again heard the case and
promulgated new rules to which
the shopmen objected. /
During the same period Mr. Jew
j ell said the practice of letting cori
! tract's for shop work to outside
J contractors, and the election of an
i employes committee on the Penn
sylvania were decided by the board
! in favor of the employes hut he
