DAILY TIMCS-ENTERPRISE. I Cotton Put up to Twelve and-a
“A resolution was introduced mak
ing the minimum selling price of cot
ton this season 15 cents for upland
middling and 2<l cents for sea island.
It was discussed thoroughly and
amended so that the body bound its
members to demand 121 cents for
upland and 20 cents for sea island. —
Extract from proceedings of the state
The State Alliance passed a resolu
tion at the meeting in Macon this
week to the effect that the members of
the Alliance will not sell the present
crop of cotton for less than twelve
and a half cents per pound. If this is
8 on binding on the Alliance men of Geor
gia, very little cotton will he market
ed foe some time. Jt would ho a very
good tiling, of course, if the cotton
growers of the South could act in
unison and hold their cotton, hut,
owing to the peculiar surroundings
and varied conditions of cotton plant
ers, this will he difficult to accomplish.
Some arc necessarily compelled to sell.
It is not unlikely that some of the
men who voted for the resolution will
sell cotton for less than 121 cents.
While wc should like to see cotton go
to these figures, the probability of it?
doing so is not flattering. It is best
for the planters to understand the
situation. It is conceded that the
present crop will ho an average* one,
and it is not likely that the price, will
be very much in excess, if any, of
former years. Some farmers can hold
their cotton and refuse to sell unless
they get 121 cents,hut there are many
who cannot hold, who hold their obli
gations to settle account above a
fixed price for (lie staple. There arc
ome, perhaps, who may come to the
conclusion that the resolution adopted
by the State Alliance will not have
the effect of putting cotton up to 121
ceuls. If it could, then some might
ask why the Alliance (lid not demand,
say 15 cents for cotton, instead of
twelve and a halt.
After all, gentlemen, while co
operation is a good thing, and farmers
should stand together, the individuali
ty of the man cannot lie-obliterated; lie
must, in some instances, lie allowed to
use his own discretion. Every man is,
or is supposed to bo, the best judge of
bis own business. As an evidence of
this proposition, the resolution passed
by (lie .Slate Alliance will lie violated
in a thousand instances. It is heller
not to attempt a tiling winch, in the
very nature of the case, cannot lie
carried out, than to attempt it and
fail. Let the Alliance work out re
forms which arc possible—not attempt
the impossible. In attempting the
impossible and failing, the order will
not strengthen itself. The member
ship will lose confidence in their lead
ers, and results will not he satisfactory.
