It can be very easily explained. The New York Economic World, in its latest issue now before us, gives the reasons for the present low price of cotton in very simple language. The Economic World isn't trying to please Cotton growers or to help cotton prices. It simply reporting the undisputed facts for the information of its readers in New York and elsewhere. Here is the way it sizes up the ituation: “The difficulty is, of course, that the spinners in every cotton consuming country in the world find themselves almost completely at sea with regard to the future of the goods market, or else fatally handicapped eiiher ty the abnormalities of the intrneational credit and exchange position or by po litical and social disturbances of a very threatening kind. Hence they do nor dare to commit themselves upon the customary scale in respect to their iaw material for the coming months even though the price at which it is now obtainable is entirely satisfactory, They must perforce pursue a purelv hand-to-mouth policy, taking for the present only such cotton as they have immediate use for and leaving it tc the c01 ton producers to carry the man part of the supply until the future deter- j mires howw much of it can be consum ed and at what price.’ In other words, the Economic world says that the reason mills are not buy ing cotton is not that they can't spin it at a profit at present prices, but simply because their inability to get bank credit, etc., makes it impossible' to buy except on a “hand-to-mouth" basis. They are taking just enough cotton to get along on from day to day. Consequently if farmers try to force them to buy enough for three, six, or nine months ahead, the mills simply say, “Well, if I buy a whole lot more than I want now, you will practically have to give it to me.” To try to feed the cotton market now is like trying to get more corn down a foundered horse. It is like trying to make a man eat three more pieces of chocolate cake after he has already filled himself with dinner and dessert. He doesn’t want it now—but if you just wait till tomorrow, he will beg for it. What la the remedy? The remedy is to get the facts before the framers. We must educate the farmer who is trying to overfeed the market. We must get him to read the papers that are trying to fight his battles and give him more information and guid ance about his marketing problems. | We must inform him concerning such triumphs of co-operative effort as Cal ! ifornia growers have achieved. We l must get him to attend me meetings ' where his interests are discussd. We must get him to attend the meetings organizations provided for his benefit. But the first step is to get him to read. If he getsthe facts about the market and the causes and remedies Tor pres ent conditions, then these other things will follow. -o 5EGR0 BAPTIST MEET Texas State Convention Opens Annual Session at Texarkana.
