CREATE A DEMAND.
There has been much written re
cently concerning night riders past
ing notices upon gin houses in many
southern states, tfircuteningto apply
the torch if they began operations
until the price of cotton readies
12c. Some have laid this threat
ened lawlessness at tlx* doors of the
Farmers’ Union, but the president
of that org; n’zation many
officers have come forward with em
phatic denials of any connection
with the affair, and we believe
them, for this honored body of
men are law-abiding citizens.
It seems to lis that these threats
will do more to lower the price of
cotton than raise’it, for no one
(•ares to handle the staple without
carrying insurance, and when a
few gin houses go up in smoke it
will he impossible to get reasonable
insurance, and .the farmer must
foot the hill in the depreciation in
price. Then, too, the farmer will
rush lid cotton onto the market
through fear of the flames.
The price of cotton is controlled
jin most part by the law of supply
aud demand. When the farmer
holds all his cotton and places him l
self in a position \vhereby he is not
able to purchase manufactured cot
ton goods he breaks a link in the
endlessehain <>f supply and demand,
the tendency being toward a stand
still and thg closing down of the
mills, and he must pay the added
cost of this closing down when lie
does purchase manufactured cotton
goods When the farmer dumps
his cotton on the market and still
refuses to purchase the manufac
tured article the tendency is to
choke the mills and lower the pi ice
of the raw material.
It may be a wild idea of ours,but
it occurs to us that the Farmers'
Union would coiuc nearer solving
tlie problem by requiring its mem
bers to expend 10 per cent of the
proceeds of their first sale's of cotton
for manufactured cotton goods,
thereby keeping the endless chain
in motion. Should every farmer
in the southern states take home
with him a bolt of cotton goods
when he sells his lirst bale of cotton
the added price he would receive
for iiis second bale would be sut
lieient to make his purchase almost
a clear pick-up.
In purchasing goods the slogan
of the southern farmer should not
lie, “How much wool does the
cloth contain?” But “How much
cotton is there in it?”
Make it stylish to wear nothing
but..cotton goods in the smith and
the demand will lift the price of
the raw material.

HoW will we vote? The so-called
negro disfranchisement is up to the
voter. Does he understand the of
fset of his vote? Has he read the
proposed amendment and consider
ed the effect thereof? The lack of
aggitation of this question, since it
served its purpose in polities,
arouses the suspicion tfant the ques
tion may have danger lurking in
it.- The white voter had best, read
this proposed amendment. We
see no reason fot calling it negro
disfranchisement, when every negro
in Geergia may vote who is entitled

the registrars will pass up his char-,

This election will put some of our
best friends to a choice between
Crow and Carter. They have eaten
crow with me heretofore and
laughed about it. There is nothing
