1 mills of the world aggregated some
20,000,000 bales la 1908. of which
the Southern Stater contributed more
than 13,000,000 bales. The demand
today f6r raw cotton Is so keen- it
will require 13,500,000 bales of
American .cotton of the growth of
1909, \and if that amount cannot be

necessity be compelled to cfose 'd?wn
or curtail their output, because there
is no. other place in the world from

the United States produced 66.4 per

is consumed in India, Japan, the far

"We do not advocate nor are we
discussing the holding of cotton for
abnormal prices, but we are urging
