Bamberg Planter Says the New Crop will
Break the Record.
The Columbia State printed the follow
ing reoently from A. W. Brabham, of
Olar, Bamberg couuty, one of the best
known cottou planters in South Carolina:
The newspapers sud, in fact, men of
every profession, aro standing open-eyed,
wondering why the receipts of fertilizers
are so heavy. They say that this fertili
zer is hoing s.toicd away in warehouses,
and so on. Now, don't bo deceived.
Facts r.rc stubborn things; tho truth
hurts; but this heavy shipment of ferli
lizers means an inoreased acroage of cot
ton over last yoar! I am not posing as a
prophot, but under favorable conditions
this year's cotton crop is going to break
all records, hocause tho farmors cu every
hand aro making greater efforts to make
cotton than ever before. This sounds
strange, indeed, but timo will toll.
There have been more mules and
horses purchased by tho cotton farmers
this season than over known. This work
stock was not bought for making corn,
hay aud othor provision crops; far from
it. They were bought for making cotton,
and the cotton will bo made, provided
we have the sunshine and showers'.
There never was a time when labor was
scarcer than now, which alono shows
that everybody is putting iu a large cot
ton crop.
The farmors aro told that the demand
for cotton is unpreoodented, that the
aoreage would bo out 25 per cent, fertili
zers proportionately, and that the cotton
association would force cotton to 10
couts by Juno. That was enough. Every
farmer is inoroasing bis acreago and
phosphates, while ho hopos that the
othor farmers, ono and all, will stand by
the association aud reduce the aoroago.
The South will plant :15,000,000 acres
in cottou this yoar, and under normal
conditions will moko 14,000,000 or 14,500,
000 bales.
The above sounds liko a circular lotter
of Thoodore Price, ono of the bear
leaders of Now York. I am no specula
tor, only a plain, blunt farmer, not
afraid to toll the truth at any time or
under any conditions.
I only hope I nm mistakou, but when
ono sees a thing, ho simply sees it in
spite of himself. And I seo greater ef
forts for a monster cotton crop than over
before. Nothing hut the Almighty can
keep cotton above 5 conts by October 1,
I am very much afraid that tho
Southern Cotton Association will ulti
mately do moro harm than good. True,
it has raised tho price of cotton, but go
ing np just at planting time was moro
than tho roassoB of tho farmors could
boar. Fivo-cont cotton at this season
would do moro to rorluce tho acroage
than any pledge, be it over so binding,
tbnt has been or may bo signed by the
farmers. Moro than this, the cottou as
sociation has a small onrollmeut of
fnrmors. Going over tho list wo lind
moro politicians, bankers, editors, doc
tors, laborers and others not engaged in
cotton culture than farmers, proportion
ately. There aro many farmers in this
organization who aro porfeotly honest in
their convictions, and will abido by the
ordor, but thero are 10 or 20 outsiders to
'one in the association who will so in?
crease their acreage as to overlap the re
duction made by tho association's mem
AB above predicted, I look for a mon
ster crop. Everything points that way,
and unless some widespread disaster be
falls tho orop now boing planted cotton
will roach rock-bottom next fall. I
was tho first man, either in thin country
or Ku rope, who predioted tho rise in cot
ton some years ago, and published it in
the Charleston Nows and Courier. That
was no divination, but a caroful Btudy of
the situation at that timo. So is this
prodiction a caroful study of tho truo
situation as it now stands. So far as I
can soe, only tho interposition of the
Great Ruler eau avert a panic among
cotton planters uoxt winter.
Cotton farmers all over the South aro
financially ablo to plant cotton, and
make it if possible Tho gamo is on,
uohro, possibly doodle-uchre.
