Impoverished tho South-Hopo from
Co-operntivo Marketing.
Columhin, Aug. 15.-"If 4 0 years
of marketing under tho old system
have left this section impoverished,
except for abnormal prlcos paid dur
ing the war, then is it not at least
time to begin to look for somo other
system of marketing?" asks W. W.
Bradley, S ta to Bank Examiner, in a
statement issued to-day, strongly en
dorsing the co-operative marketing
of cotton and tobacco, and urging
tho banks ot the State to back tho
two associations. >.* 1
Mr. Bradley declares that the suc
cess of tho associations rests inore
largely with tho banks than with
any other force in the State. The
plan will succeed, ho declared, Just
tu.soutar a^tft?^^
"Thoro is nothing in the problem
that ls Inimical to their interests,
and there is every probability of
material prosperity to the banks, ns
wVdV aa the communities they serve,
in promoting this marketing plan,"
declares Mr. Bradley in enumerating
some of tho reasons why tho banks
should support tho associations.
"In tho past farm products havo
been sold to thoroughly organized
compacts by thoroughly disintegrate
producors. Tho man who produces
has no word in tho conduct of pro
duco exchange. Tho law of supply
and demand ' has boen* inoperative
except lu tho caso of extremely largo
or oxtromoly.small crops, and then
has been used mainly to the advant
age of tho speculator.
"Co-operative markoting, it is be
lieved, will remody, if not cure, this
evil by enabling tho producor to get
some advantage of tho selling end of V
tho law of supply and demand."
