“HOLD COTTON”
JORDAN’S SLOGAN
IN LETTER TO PLANTERS
SAYS SALVATION OF THE SOUTH
DEPENDS OY IT.
Is,ll* oh South Not to Surrender to
Dletutlon of a Few ‘•Wnll Street
Gamblers"—Savannah Cotton Fac
tors Believe That if Present Hold
ings Are Not Marketed Freely
Prices Will Improve—Much De
pea its on Attitude of Country
Banks.
Another appeal for the South to
stand lirm In holding its cotton to the
end that a fair price may be secured
for that portion of it, that is yet un
marketed, is made by Hon. Harvie
Jordan, president of the Southern Cot
ton Growers’ Protective Association, in
a letter that is being sent out all' over
Uie cotton growing territory.
Several local cotton factors who read
the letter yesterday while not inclined
to indorse it as a whole because of its
denunciatory tone in connection with
certain branches of the cotton trade,
yet believe that the advice given to
hold cotton is good advice, inasmuch
as the present time is a critical one in
the cotton trade, and if, because of
the recent big break in prices follow
ing the Department of Agriculture's
report of the estimated yield, the pro
ducers and inferior holders of cotton
should rush their holdings on the mar
ket the prices will go even, lower than
they are tat present, and preclude the
hope of any' tally during the remain
der of the season.
Views of n Factor.
"If the country will hold Its cotton,”
said one factor, “and refrain from sell
ing freely at these prices the price
can be put up to 8 cent, possibly 8%,
which, taken in conjunction with the
higher prices paid earlier in the sea
son would give the producer a fair
average price for his entire crop.
"I believe this plan to be the best
course open to planters and those
holding cotton and am pleased to see
that the country has strengthened
within the last two days, of which an
instance is shown by the effort of
mills to buy supplies at the ports, an
effort probably dictated by the rea
son that then can't buy at interior
points at present prices.”
Analysis of Situation.
Another prominent factor. even
while agreeing that the situation is
critical for those holding cotton does
not think that conditions are as bad
as would ordinarily be inferred from
the prospective size of the crop. The
mills started the season, he says, with
no surplus stock of cotton to spin, and
therefore must supply all their needs
from the present crop, which should
make a very material increase in the
amount they will need. Again there
are enough holders of the staple who
will refuse to sell around present
prices to remove probably 500.000 bales
from the market so that after all the
available supply of cotton should not
te so greatly in excess of what is or
dinarily needed and may be no more
than Is needed, when consideration is
given to the fact that there was re
cently been quite an increase in the
number of spindles for spinning the
cotton crop.
Banks Tan Help.
'lf the country banks are able and
willing to assist the planters and other
holders in keeping their cotton off the
market for the present,” said the same
speaker, “the situation will materially
improve, but nothing can prevent a
decline if the holders become demor
alized and throw their cotton on the
market at any price." The speaker
was of the opinion that the country
hunks are in a position to assist in
carrying the cotton and that the en
tire cotton belt is. in fact, in splendid
condition to take care of itself if there
be but some unity of action.
One of the dangers in the situation,
Jt was stated, is that the holders will
be Influenced by the large and spe
ciously worded literature that is cir

very much from those of former years
when large crops were made and low
prices paid, and the difference is to
the advantage of the producer.
Mr. Jordan in his letter says:
Jordan’s Letter.
‘‘Shall the South quietly surrender to
the dictation of a few Wall street gam
blers in depressing the price of our
great staple crop last week from nine
and a half to seven cents per pound;
or will they rise in their manhood and
refuse to submit to this unholy sac
rifice? The bearish bureau report is
sued from the Department of Agricul
ture on Dec. 3, indicating a crop of
12,162,000 bales, gave the speculators
the opportunity they had been praying
for, and in less than thirty minutes
nearly $30,000,000 in value was struck
from the pockets of Southern farmers.
The bureau report exceeded the ex
pectations of the most extreme “bear”
speculators, and but few well posted
men in the South believe for a moment
that the yield this season will ever
reach the high estimate placed upon
the cron by the bureau.
That report was based upon a theo
retical acreage of about 32,000,000 acres,
and indicates a yield far in excess of
that indicated by the amount of cotton
ginned up to Nov. 14, in the census
report. Either one or the other of
these reports is wrong. The ginners'
report is based upon facts as ascer
tained at the gins, while the bureau
report as issued last Saturday is guess
work. The recent heavy depression in
the price of spot cotton has been caused
by a lot of gamblers and speculators
who neither produce or weave a pound
of cotton. Every dollar’s loss on cot
ton sold at present prices will go into
the pockets of these speculators and
it remains for the present owners and
holders of at least 5,000.000 bales of
this crop to say whether this un
righteous hold up and high handed
robbery shall be quietly submitted to.
Several million bales of this crop are
yet in the hands and control of the
farmers, merchants and local bankers.
‘‘Letters are coming to me from
farmers all over the South stating that
they will not sell any cotton now in
their possession at present prices, and
urging that every farmer take similar
action. Others propose to enter into
an. ironclad agreement to hold all the
cotton they now have until next Sep
tember and reduce their cotton acreage
ne*t year 25 per cent. They urge me
io issue this call for volunteers on a
similar agreement and undertake to
absolutely tie up the 2.V00.000 to 3,000,-
000 bale? of the present crop unless
prices go back to legitimate figures.
Meeting of Cotton Men.
“I now call upon every producer who
is holding cotton, and who can possibly
do so. to attend the National Cotton
Convention to be held at Shreveport.
La., Dec. 12, 13, 14 and 15th instant,
ther® to take definite action looking to
the holding of the balance of this crop
until prices advance, and consider
plans for reducing the cotton acreage
next year so as to prevent a surplus
which is now being used by the specu
lators to harass, embarrass and im
poverish again Southern cotton produc
ers.
"The salvation of the South depends
upon every man who now has cotton in
his possession to do his full duty by re
fusing to sell at present prices.
“Do not get discouraged or timid.
Store your cotton under cover or in
warehouses and there let it rest. The
world wants it and must have it soon.
No farmer should be afraid to retain
possession of a staple which is to-day
the most valuable agricultural product
in the world. Hold tight to your cot
ton until the Shreveport meeting on
Dec. 12, at which time a definite plan
will be adopted to force an advance in
the present depressed price of the
staple.”

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY. DECEMBER 8. 1904.
CITY WILL TEST
GAS ANDJLECTRIC
METERS FOR CONSUMERS.
ALDERMAN GAKFUXKeI INTRO
DUCED METER ORDINANCE.
Upon the Payment of a Fee of One
Dollar Any Consumer May Have
Hi* Meter Tested—if the Meter I*
Correct the City Keeps Fee, if It
I* Wrong the Money Ik Returned,
and the Company Owning the Me
ter Ik Made to Pay.
“An ordinance, providing for the in
spection, testing, proving and regula
tion of gas and electric meters ip the
city of Savannah, prescribing proper
punishment for infractions of this ordi
nance, creating the office of Inspector
of meters In this city, defining and fix
ing his duties and for other purposes
connected therewith.”
Such is the caption of an ordinance
introduced in Council by Alderman A.
J. Garkunkel, and read for the first
time last night. There is to be only
one more regular meeting of Council
this year, so the ordinance will be
put upon its passage just in time to
become operative at the beginning of
the new year.
It was announced in the Morning
News some time ago that the ordi
nance would be introduced at last
night’s session of Council. All the
provisions of the ordinance had not
then been fully determined and they
are now made public for the first time.
Inspector of Meter*.
The first section of the ordinance
provides that all gas or electric meters
in the city in use at the time the ordi
nance is passed, or which may there
after be used, shall be subject to test
ing and regulation, to the end that
quantity of gas or electricity used
may be accurately registered.
Sections 2 and 3 provide for the cre
ation of the office of inspecter of met
ers. The inspector is to be appointed
by the Water Committee, subject to
the approval of the Mayor, and may
be removed at any time by the com
mittee. The salary of the office is to
be fixed by the Water Committee.
The inspector is to have an office in
the water department and will be un
der the superintendent of that depart
ment. The superintendent may as
sign him other duties in addition to
the inspection and testing of meters.
How It Will Work.
Any consumer desiring to have his
meter tested must present a written
request to that effect to the city treas
urer, and must pay a fee of sl. The
treasurer will turn the request over to
the inspector who will test the meter
in the presence of the consumer, if
the consumer so desires, and also in
the presence of a representative of the
gas or electric company, as the case
may be, if the company so desires.
If the meter is found to be correct
it will be so marked by the inspector
and the fee that has been paid by the
consumer to the city will be retained.
If, however, the meter is found to be
incorrect the $1 paid by the- consumer
will be returned to him, the inspector
giving him an order on the city treas
urer, and the company owning the
meter will be made to pay the city the
fee within five days.
Right to Condemn.
If a meter can be regulated this may
be done, but if it is found to be so worn
as to make this impossible the in
spector is given the right to condemn
it. A condemned meter must be re
placed by anew one by the company
and the new meter, before being put
in, must be inspected and stamped as
correct by the meter inspector. For ex
amining these new meters the city
will charge the companies a fee of 25
cents each.
Section 5 makes it unlawful for
either a gas or electric company to
charge for more gas or electricity than
is registered by the meter. Section 6
provides that any official of a gas or
electric company falling to comply
with the ordinance may, upon, convic
tion, be fined not more than SSO, or
imprisoned not more than thirty days,
either or both in the discretion of the
officer presiding In Police Court.
operated as a single system. Under
such circumstances it can hardly be
questioned that the Atlantic Coast
Line would secure considerable surplus
earnings from the operations of the
other roads over and above the guar
anteed dividends.
ESCAFFER BOUND"OvTr
ON TWO CHARGES.
L. Escaffer, the young white man
who confessed to having “intercepted” a
cash basket at Leopold Adler's Mon
day morning, was given a preliminary
hearing before the Recorder yesterday
morning and bound over to the City
Court on two charges, one for steal
ing the money and another for the lar
ceny of a football.
LUNG TROUBLE; SKIN DISEASE.
tThln blooded, anemic person? are very liable to suffer
from an inflammation of the lungs, or "lung trouble," as
It is commonly called, as well as from stubborn affec

depleted condition of the system—loss of strength and
tissue. The lungs In turn become weak, the chest con
tracts instead of expanding, the pores of the skin, not be
ing fed by healthy blood are not sufficiently open, and
the constitution being generally run down, there is often
a complete deterioration of the functions of the body.
Hence, the slightest cold takes firm root, .the lungs be
come inflamed, pneumonia develops and the person's very
life is in danger. Or the anemic state of the blood results
