NEXT YELl'S COTTON CROP.
Midd'ing cotton for several weeks ol
past has been wavering between the 9
and 10 cents figres, going as high
Is 9 7-8. and is now almost staton- a'
ary at 9 6-8, waiting as it were, for l
the coming receipts until the close of
the year, when it will doubtless make
a decided move in one direction or
another. When we remember the
sales wade at less than seven cents
in the early part of the season 11
etfore the belief l .the short- pr
ness of the drop was generally known
and fully established, and compare
them with the figures now governing
the market, we cannot but begin to
. serimly east about for somae sure
methdd to prevent the recurrence of ki
such .a evil, whereby the producer L
becomes so badly feeced.
The laws governing the staple in h
the numerous markets of the world,
are clearly estaldished and made so
plain that he that runneth may read.
It is true that the demand for cot
ton has ~annally increased, but not to y
the extent of the increase in produc- fi
tion. Thecotton market has beenglut- 1
ted for a number of years, showing
an increased surplus year after year,
which has been taken advantage of
by speealators, and the prices pressed
down tar below remunerative values.
One of the common-sense axioms
of trade recognized as true all the
world over is this. When the sup- a
ply It in excess of the demand prices
naturally go down, and visa verse,
and the larger the excess the lower
the prices. The gross number of I
bales required by the world for I
annual consumption is readily ob- I
tained. The number of bales raised I
in all portions of the world other
than America can also be readily ob
tained. Therefore this country being
the most favorable to cotton growing
in every way, producing a very 'large
proportion of the!staple, the annual
supply could readily be kept within
the limits of the annual demand.
But the question irises, How is that
to be done? The answer is easy, by
concert of action on the part of plant
era. Al! but how is concert of action
to be obtained? By untiring strep
nous efforts only. There is an- in
tense human greed that has to be
overcome and safely bound down
within the rules. No doubt there are
some selfish persons here and there
existing among cotton growers who
would be delighted to take advantage
of any combined decreased acreage
in cotton and plant all the cotton they
possible could to get the benefit of the
big prices the combine decreased
acreage would naturally produce.
All such persons should be brought
into line as it were. It would be
the sheerest nonsense inthe world to
say such a thing could not be done.
Look at the ia ls working people's
unions on the continent, united they
are an immense power. Look at the
various combinations of capital; how
irresistable they prove under power
ful oppssing circumstances. In un
ion there is strength and when it is
an intelligent determined union, it
becomes irresistable. Then why not
an union of planters, from the North
ern to the Southern, and the Eastern
to the Western limits of the cotton
growing region, divided up into
parishes, counties and States with a
central union directing all, after
gatherng the required information as
to the annual supply and demand.
Surely such an organization is feasa
ble, and the -situatiou demands it.
Its accomplishment will require labor,
intelligence and much determination,
for there will be many dilliculties to
overcome and many stubborn objec
tors to be brought to bay, but the
end will justify all the netessary
means to accomplish the object.
'Twill ensure a continuous renumera
tive price for the staple instead of an
uncertaiunlagare, often below the cost
of production, and thereby make the
whole cotton growing region prosper
one. Speeulators will of course, as
heretofore, endeavor to control the
market and lead the prioes in the
diaction of their own interest, but
as long as the supply is not in excess
-t(I ldemand there is no danger of
toy epial variation in the fgures.
