THE NORTH-Bt’RLKSO* CORRE
It is up to the cotton farmers to say
■ whether or not they want the govern
ment to continue to collect and
publish the cotton statistics it ob
tains from the ginners. If they
don't want them it is an easy mat
ter for them to have the publication
of them stopped. It Is costing the gov
ernment $125,000 a year to publish
them, and it is certain the government
isn’t anxious to continue the work if
the cotton farmers are not benefited
by it. It w ill be recalled that the work
was undertaken at their request. A
condition of affairs existed that was
almost intolerable. Agents of the
great English cotton firms were scat
tered all over the cotton belt, and
their reports were of a character to
create the impression that the crop
was larger than it really was. There
isn't a cotton farmer of Intelligence
who doesn't remember the outcry there
was against the reports of the condi
tion of the cotton crop that Mr. Neill
sent broadcast over the world every
fall. If we are not mistaken they
were almost invariably in favor of the
spinner and against the farmer. It
was because of these reports, and
others of a similar character, that an
appeal was made to the government
to undertake the work of collecting
and publishing statistics relating to
the cotton crop.
L'ntll this year the reports were sat
isfactory. The reason they are not
popular this season is that they have
caused a slump in the price of cotton,
but it is not asserted that they are not
true. It is a fact, of course, that the
claim has been set up that the ginners’
reports are not always to be relied up
on. and that when published by the gov
ernment they give too great a jog to
the cotton market. There may be some
truth in this, but, as a matter of fact,
is it not in the power of the cotton
farmers to have them about as correct
as it Is possible to have such statis
tics? In some localities there may be
ginners who give out false reports sim
ply because of business rivalry among
themselves, but if the cotton farmers
let it be understood that they want
only correct Information published the
ginners will respond to their wish in
the matter. It is to the Interest of
ginners to be in harmony with the
farmers. There is no reason, other
than the foregoing one. why the gin
ners should give out false information.
What would happen if the govern
ment should abandon the work? The
agents of th§ spinners—the foreign
spinners as a rule—would come into
the field again and their reports would
dominate the cotton market, just as
they did before the present system
Now the farmers get pretty near
the truth and the market is influenced
by the reports which the government
sends out. When the indications are
that the crop will be a big one the
market goes down, and when, as was
the case last year, they indicate the
crop will be a small one, the market
advances, but it is worthy of notice
that the information is of a character
to enable the farmers bo act before
the market is very seriously disturb
ed. This year, for instance, the far
mers were able to see for themselves
that the crop was likely to be a big one,
and a big percentage of them heeded
the warning and Bold their cotton.
Others thought that the market would
stand a much larger crop than that of
last year, and so held on to at least a
part of their crop. It was impossible
for them to forsee. it was impossible
for anybody to forsee, that the season
was going to be a phenomenal one in
respect to weather, permitting picking
to go on every day from Sept. 1 to
Christmas. But the farmers had
warning in time to dispose of their
crop at a price that would yield a good
AA’hat will happen if the proposed
Cotton Ginners' Association is formed
and information given out only to gin
ners and farmers? Will the informa
tion go to all the farmers at once, as
it does under the present system, or
will it get into a few hands and be
used for speculative purposes? That is
a question which the farmers can an
swer as well as others.
As far as we are able to see the
present system is the best one that
has yet been devised for the interests
of the farmers. They get the in
formation as soon as the speculators,
and It is in their power, as we have
pointed out, to make it sufficiently ac
curate for their purposes. Still, as
Director North intimates, if they don’t
want it they are not obliged to have
it. If they encourage the ginners to
withhold the information Director
North will be out of business, but
would their interests be better served
then? If, for Instance, the crop next
year should be a short one, wouldn’t
the government report be helpful to
ARMOR PLATE CHARGES.
Is It not a fact that the government
pays about two prices for armor
plate? There has always been a sus
picion in the minds of many people
who have given the subject attention
that it does. This question comes to
the front at this time because on the
12th of next month bids will be open
ed by the Department of the Navy
lor armor plates for the battleship
New Hampshire and two cruisers.
There will be two bidders, or rather
three, but it is the understanding that
the Carnegie and Bethlehem plants bid
us one. The competition therefore will be
between them and the Midvale Hteel
Company of Philadelphia. Ktach con
cern will of course try to get the big
gest price It can and at the same time
get the contract.
The price at present la about $420 a
ton. It wouldn't l> surprising, how
ever, If the Midvale Company should
bid considerably below that price. Ex
perts In the making of steel are of

pany was too small. Couldn't the plant
have been made larger? At that time
Mr. Carnegie had a grtflat deal of in
fluence with the government, particu
larly with the Republican party, and
it isn't improbable that it was inclined
to favor him.
There would be surprise in several
quarters if the Midvale Company
should greatly outbid the Carnegie and
Bethlehem companies. It would be a
source of great satisfaction to the coun
try if it should. If It were not for the
fact that the party in power con
siders it advisable to yield to labor's
demand it would pay the government
to own its own plant for making ar
mor plate, but labor costs it so much
more than it costs private steel manu
facturers that armor plate made In
government mills would probably cost
more than It does now. It is a fact
that thoroughly equipped as our navy
yards are, battleships and cruisers can
be built for less by shipbuilders than
by the government.
THE LYNCHING OF KING COTTON.
Neither frenzied finance nor frenzied
journalism ever experienced a keener
thrill than was given both on Wednes
day by the report that King Cotton
had been lynched in Georgia—cremated,
ala Reed and Cato—for no crime of
his own, save that he had overgrown
himself. But, as much as King Cot
ton had expanded, it was nothing to
compare with the manner in which the
story of his lynching expanded. At
lanta had the sending end of the wires.
The stories that were put ‘on them
melted the transmitting instruments
and sent the operators to bed with
nervous prostration. It was too shock
ing even for Atlanta nerves, as wit
ness the fact that even the Atlanta
papers did not print the stories that
were sown broadcast through the press
of the United States under Atlanta
New York and New Orleans and
Liverpool and Fall River nearly had
fits when the Atlanta dispatches tell
ing of the lynching began to come in.
Not even Thomas W. Lawson could
have “thrown such a scare into” the
markets and men interested in cotton.
Governors of states held their breath
momentarily, and than said sage things
about the sin and folly of burning
cotton. Commissioners of argriculture
wagged their wise heads and reluctant
ly submitted to be interviewed on the
horrors of the situation.
The New York Times printed a dis
patch of several hundred words, under
an Atlanta date line, in which it was
stated as a fact that "more than 3,000
bales of cotton” had been burned at
Fort Gaines, and that several thousand
other bales were “now blazing in the
Southern section of the state.” The
veracious chronicler for the Times es
timated that “more than SIOO,OOO worth
of cotton” had already been destroyed,
and said there was no telling where
the movement would stop. The im
pression sought to be conveyed was
that the whole state of Georgia was
pretty well lighted up with bonfires
made of cotton; that the people had
gone daft and were burning up their
money. The Louisville Courier-Journal
printed a dispatch, from Atlanta, simi
lar in tone to that of the Times, but
it placed the number of bales burned
at Fort Gaines at 300. The Philadel
phia Record’s story said several bales
were burned. Various New York and
other Northern papers, evidently afraid
of the heavy figures of the Atlanta
story, declined to be specific and left
the extent of the Incineration in doubt.
Reliable reports received from Fort
Gaines are to the effect that one bale
was burned. It seems that certain
merchants and farmers agreed that
they would be willing to burn “their
share of 2,000,000 bales” In order to
boost the price. Calculating upon the
census figures, Fort Gaines’ "share”
of 2,000,000 bales of 500 pounds each for
the whole cotton belt would be some
thing like 100 pounds of cotton. On
that basis, it seems that more than
Fort Gaines' “share” was burned.
Meanwhile we are sure that the gen
tlemen who made Mole St Nicholas,
Shanghai and Cheefoo famous must
feel envious that their laurels have
been so ruthlessly plucked by Atlanta.
in view of the Bilbo canal contro
versy, some experiments conducted re
cently by scientists of Wisconsin and
Illinois are of local interest. The ex
periments were for the purpose of test
ing the longevity of typhoid bacilli in
water. The conclusion reached seems
to be that typhoid germs live longer
in pure water than in water contami
nated by sewage, and longer in
winter than in summer. Soil
bacteria quickly destroy the ty
phoid bacteria, tout the bacteria
in uncontaminated water seem to have
no such power of destruction on the
disease germs. At the temperature of
the ice chest the typhoid germ grows
in the by-products of other germs
which at a higher temperature are fa
tal to it. In sterilized Lake Michigan
water the typhoid germ lives fifteen
to twenty-five days, while in unster
ilized water it lives but five to eight
days. Under certain conditions the
germs may retain life for months and
