CUT DOWN COTTON ACREAGE.
The Fort Worth Record says very
truly that "the farmer makes a mis
take when lie thinks he can regulate
the price of cotton regardless of pro
Iuction. That is the mistake Mr.
gordan's campaign for fifteen-cent
cotton has been based on. and it is
going to hurt the south incalculably
if the farmers do not sharply curtail
their acreage under that of 1904."
In a recent statement Mr. R. D.
Hudson, Secretary of the Texas Di
vision of the Southern Cotton asso
ciation, explains that the states west
of the Mississippi river were not or-'
ganized, and consequently were not in
sympathy with Mr. Jordan's procla
mation for'fifteen-cent cotton. These
states threw their cotton on the mar
ket without regard to what effect
such action on their part would have
on the price of the staple. They play
ed right into the hands of the bears
and the price went down naturally
and inevitably. There must be agree
ment among the cotton growers all
over the south if the men who make
the cotton intend to control the price
at which it shall be marketed. The;
ifailure of the Western growers to co
operate with the growers in the other
cotton states has enabled, in the lan
gnage of Mr. Hudson. "the bears to
carry on their devilish work each day
and week since the New Orleans con
It is reported now that the Texas
planters will plant this year for a
crop of 4,000.000 bales in that state
alone. The price of the staple next
fall and winter will depend upon the
acreage in the other cotton producing
states. Every bale grown in excess of
the world's demands will lessen the
value of every other bale that may be
produced this year. The only safety
of the cotton planters is in cutting
dbwn the acreage this year. If t.hey~
want to raise cotton for fun, instead
of for profit, let them go ahead and
*plant all the land they can cultivate.
If they want to raise cotton for the?
money there is in it, let them reduce
the acreage by at least 30 per cent.
News and Courier.
* The News and Courier is preaching
mighty good and sound doctrine in the
above comments. So sound and so
*good that it should be told until it
reaches the ear of every cotton plant-,
er in the south.
"'Every bale in excess of the world's
demands will lessen the value of every
other bale that may be produced this
*year.'' Every sensible farmer real
izes the truth of this statement.
Organization is a good thing but if
the crop is larger than the world 's de
mands then the value of the staple
will be decreased, because the world
*will know that the crop is in excess of
the demand and organization cannot
*"The only safety of the cotton
planters is in cutting down the acre
age this year.'' And we might add
in increasing the acreage of corni and*
potatoes and such things as are need
ed for consumption on the farm.
Besides that the farmer of this
section of the cotton belt especially
who undertakes to grow cotton with

the farm which can be grown on the
'farm will lose money it matters very:
little 'what the price of cotton is. On
'the other hand the farmer who raises.
his own supplies on the farm will
make some money farming even if
cotton is selling at six . and seven
cents. This is what we have preached
for many years and the more it is
preached the more strongly are we
convinced of the souuidness of the doe
And now they say the jug traffic is~
growing. The daily average of liquor
shipments into Spartanburg two
weeks ago was estimated at seventy
five gallons. Now it is put between
eighty and ninety gallons daily. This
will easily raise the amount of cash
paid out for liquor to $125,000 an
That is a better thing for the whis
key dealers than the dispensary for
certainly the dispensary scarcely sold
that much liquor in Spartanburg.
It is hardly probable that the
Southern will put another passenger
train each way between Columbia and
Greenville as suggested in the Co
lumbia correspontdence otf the News
and Courier so as to give a morning
train from Greenville to Columbia and
an afternoon train from Columbia to
Greenville. If the present midday
- trins, however, were changed so that
the train from Greenville would leave
Greenville about 7 o 'clock and return
to Gireenville leaving Columbia about
5 o'clock iII the aftermoon it would be
a great improvemient. Newberrv
should be represeliedl at the confer
enee in Coliumibia if the other towns
aloin the line are to be represented.
Such a change as we suggest would be
better than the present arrangement
so far as we are concerned because
it would not only give us an oppor
tunity to go towards Greenville or
Columbia and return the same day
directions an opportunity to come to
Newberrv and do their trading and re
turn the same day. On account of the
present schedules people form Old
Town and Chappells and all above
go to Greenwood instead of com
ing to Newberry. Here is a
practical demonstration of the
need of a business men's organization
to take up just such matters for
