K FINKS & CO KM COTTON An Able Defense or the Fleecy Monarch. BY JAKE WEAVER OF MART, "Woll, how is politics in your part of tho county?" "I havo not been among my neigh bors m u oh and cannot speak authori tatively as to them but 1 am for Clark for governor and Mills for tho sonuto, and I boliovo tho ticket will oarry in Mart, McLennan county and the whole state." Mr. Jake Weaver needs no intro duction to the majority of our oiti.ontj, out there Hre some, of oourso, who bavo not been in this county lone enough to know the veteran cotton raiser and ginnor. Mr. Weaver has been in tho business moro than thirty years aud has prospered. Ho has a magnificent farm on Bit; Ureok on tho Mart and Waoo road, and ono of tho finest gins in Texas is owned and inanageu by him on tho farm. M Weaver lost his right bund last fa'l by cettine it aucht in tho cin. A singular coineidenco was noticed in these columns at tho timn. Mr. HV.ink lanes, another veteran rrinnnr. living i f -. -- at Lorena, lost his arm tho aamo day in tho samo way, and both wore ampu tated at the samo placo-just below the elbow. ALL OVJ511 TOWN. Tho briok masons of Waoo organ izod into a trades union last night at the Wortham Hotel. Mr. Ed Levy, a formor resident of A Veteran Cotton ISaUcr or .llcl.tm imii County-over Production not tho Cause of Low l'rico. It Hi tho KcMtrictltin of our Markets for Mill anil Clark. Mr. Jake Weaver of Mart, MoLen nan county is in tho city today and meoting him on the streot this morn ing a representative of The News put a few interrogatories with refer ence to the prospects among the cot ton raisers. "Is thero any disposition in your neighborhood Mr. Weaver to reduce tho aoreage of cotton?" was askod. Thore is some talk about it but I reckon every man will r.in all tho ground ho can get broke including all the sod land, and now and then a rented patch. That's my advice to my neighbors. I boliove every farmer ought to raise all the corn, wheat oats, hay, in fact, every thing in the way of feed and hogs enough for his moat, but for a money crop he is bound to plau'tAotton. Uot ton is nr'ghty low, I gratit you, but if one bale brings fcii), two bales will bring $60, and if that is our only money crop I would liko to know how wo can help ourselves. "I have heard a pmnt. a0i i...i uvUr prouueuon as Deing tho oiuso of the low prioo in cotton bnt I don't bo heve a word of it. Why, in 1867 cotton sold here in Waco at 4 oonts a pound and everybody was afraid of it at that price. I was raising ootton then in tho Brazos Bottom and in common with every other ootton raisor, wanted to know why ootton sud denly dropped so low. T TOflQ tnA tlinn -,. r ... - ., ,v. vuuu us i am now that it was overproduction, that we wore raising too much of it, wo had better jnaut- jess cotton and more corn and other grain. The next year ootton oponed up at 10 oonts and beforo the season closed went to 18. "This is a cotton country and it is foohshnoss for tho farmers of Texas to try to raisa grain for the mar ket. As I said before it is well enough for all of iLem to raise their own hnna anA . j all kinds of feed for their own use but wo can't compete with Kansas Missouri, Illinois and other western states m tho grain market, and thore are many things other states can raise and soil us cheaper than wo can raiso them ourselves. If this wero not truo wo would need no commerce. Our roilroads and steam ship lines would bo of no nsn ulinfo..- :c could produoo overy article of food and clothing. '0 produoo things that other counties cannot, and they produoo things wo cannot and is tho exchange of those commodities that mases both prosperous," "A restriction of suoh exchange is detrimental to all produoors too? re markod the reporter." "You aro exaotly right there. Wo want to oxchancc our ootton with anybody who will give us more of what wo want in return for it and wo want every barrier torn down that pre vents a froo oxo hango of our products with the world. This, after all, is what determines tho prioo of any thing. Tho more dillioult it is to ox change what suplus we havo tho lower the price of that surplus. Tho freor wo are to deal with the consumers of our produots tho moro extended our market will be and hotter -prices we will got. The Modern Mokanna. Suoh is the title of a locture by W. C.
