1* It the purpose of thA cotton mer-
Hnt* of this jort to continue to sub
mit to the discrimination against them’ln
the matter of Insurance on cotton? A
■ lay or two ago we published the state
mnt that the Insurance rates here sre
one sixteenth of a rent a pound higher
than In New Orleans, notwithstanding
•ho greater risk from New Orleans. It
I seems that the discrimination Is even
greater than we stwted It Is alleged to
bo .ill the way from one sixteenth to on*
eighth of a cent a pound cgalnst this
It can be seen readily that such a dis
crimination is n very great islvantoga to
New Orleans. CQfion buyers there can
afford to give a higher price for cotton.
They can. In fact, draw cotton from ter
ritory that legitimately belong- to Bavan
n*h on account of this difference in in
surance on ocean cotton freight*.
And from whit we can learn from ship
per* and others there | no excuse what
ever for this discrimination The reason*
adv inerd by insurance men for It can be
easily shown to l*e unsound on* s. Ir fact,
w* publish*d day or two ago an Inter*
\i*-w with one of the l(ding ship broker**
satisfactorily anwering the reasons put
forth by an Insurance mm.
I* It the purpose of the cotton men to
rontlnuo to suhmF to the die riminatkw)
without an * ffort to have the wrong
against this port corrected? If they feel
no particular interest in the matter them
aelvts have they no Interest In their city?
If we irr to build up the commerce of this
port we must have every advantage which
legitimately belongs to us. No advantage
that l* withheld from us will be given to
us voluntarily. If we get it we must
fight tar It.
W* cannot understand why our cotton
merchants are so Indifferent about this
mailer. Here Is a chance to wive more than
thirty cents on every bob* of cotton and
not a otton m m sm disposed to take
a step to benefit the port to that extent
Ami ih r.iilrnwds. do they not Intend to
do anything in the matter? They, too,
are deeply interested. The less the
• barges are for moving cotton from this
port the wider the territory will be from
which they will be able to draw cotton.
We talked t*out deep water until we
got It. and now we are demanding deeper
water for the purpose of still further
lessening ocean freight rat*-. But here
la n banco for decrttwlng the cost of
handling for*dgn-bound cotton without
the expenditure of a dollar, find not a
single cotton merchant and not one of the
nulroud* hrlngtng cotton here seems dis
posed to utilise It. What has become of
the public s|krlt of our business men?
The tune w.w* when the opportunity to
benefit the cotton trade of the port to
the exiem of thirty cents a bale would
have aroused every man Interested in the
commercial welfare of the city to activity.
Now nothing but Indifference Is apparent.
If our commerce is to grow. If wc are to
build up a great commercial city here we
• iroot afford to \oluntorlly abandon any
assistance which we mU'ht have by de
manding it. We have rival* that are ac
tive, ilrHms and vigilant. If wc rest on
our oar we shall soon find ourselee* fall
ing to th* - nsr
That N*w Or lean* rites of Insurance on
o* *-n cotton freights should b** less than
1 hose of Havannah Is preposterous. To
act th** matter right, to have the Insurance
rates of H tvann n placed below those of
N*w Orleans. It Is only necessary that our
cotton merchant# and railroads should
make a demand upon the insurance com
panies for simple Justice. Will they do
this or will they submit without a pro
test io the din* rim ins lion under which
they are now laboring?
