HOLD YOUR COTTON.
Karvie Jordan Issues Letter to Plan*
tera and Bankers.
1 ^Qbliahed by reqaeit of I. A. Keller.
I I /\ President Harvie Jordan, of the
I fj Southern Cotton Association, has isi
I ll 8Ued an address to the farmers of the J
LI 11 South, urging them to hold their cotton
until the price reaches the level it
should attaiD, and he also urges the
bankers and business men to aid in
this work as far as possible. Following
is the letter : (
"Headquarters Southern Cotton As- I
sociation, Atlanta, Ga., November 27,
1907.?In the face of tho Btrenuous efforts
of bearish manipulation to depress
prices for spot cotton, the cotton
growers all over the South are standCULLUU
lDg flrm> in their heroic purpose to
maintain th& market and prevent the
anticipated panic of rush sales, so con

lative sources. The records show that
the crop has moved freely, until quite
11 recently, and the year's obligations,
)B.y3.Di6 due by the farmers, largely liquidated.
Every hanker, merchant and business
interest in the South should now give
Torino* every possible aid to the gr?wen in
the present holding movement, until
the price of spot cotton reaches the
high level it should attain, and force
?6 that the payment of the full intrinsic value.
"The recent census ginners' report
does not indicate a crop in excess of
11,000,000 bales, due to the very short ?
yield in the Southwest.
| "Production in foreign countries is
reported at least 2,000,000 bales short
as compared with last year. Expor s
of American cotton exceeded 9,000,000
bales in the last twelve months, and
the demand continues unabated. <
"The money stringency is fast being
relieved and the business will soon asj
| sume its normal ievel. Sell no cotton
1 ?1 |? that can be financed, or held, at present
prices. The future strength of the
cotton growing interests of the South
depends upon winning the victory in
the present struggle. Let every man '
in the South do his full duty and the
reward will be sure and swift in the
realization of higher prices.
"Farmers, merchants, bankers and '
business interests generally favorable
* to the holding movement should hold 1
K A VT It* mass meetings at once in their respec^CULnllkc
tive counties or parishes and determine
upon a concentrated effort and
an effective co-operation.
Yours truly,
"Harvie Jordan,

Last Friday and Saturday the public square
was fall of cotton wagons. The price generuly
paid ranged (rom ll>? to a prloe a little
ess. The wagons; In line, waiting for their
:urn to be weighed, reached from the warehouse
back into the square, and the street was
ilraoat monopolized by the cotton wagons.
Much of the staple was sold, but the warejouse
Is so crowded with theootton that the
