Slavery of woman and children in the cotton Aelda la the only means nf Marketing tha ataplo at the prevent low price, according to a atatemrnt by W. W Morrison, of the New Or lean* Cotton Exchange, In a com raimication to the American Colton Aa*ocialion. He oatimatea that it cords 47 8-B cent* to produce a pound of cotton, "Owing to a wholly erroneous es timate by tha public." ha najri, "ml Ion haa alway* occupitd a fal*r r>o*i on in the economic life of the South "This in due to the habit, inherited from the regime of slavery of not charging the crop up with the ex LCUIC involved in lie nprtdnr*ir»n In keeping with what sound basinet* usage demands. “In the 8oath cattle, sheep, earn, os Is, potatoes and other products, representing millions of dollars In value, havt bssn and continue to be consumed each year on the farms on which they are grown. “Where half tne area cultivated is in cotton, the consumption of fully 76 per rent of these products ia made necessary by the cultivatson and har vesting of the cotton crop, that being the exeesa of labor which cotton re quires. In other wards, if it had not baen for the cottoa crop, 76 per cent of these products could have Wen said for cash and would havc become a liquid asset to the fanner. Must Demand Bight Prise. Mr. Morrison stresses the fact in hit communication to tha American Cotton Association that when farmers realise they now are not grosring cot "««lg!IMMMMV labor—then cotton will no longer prove a liability. The American Cot ton Association has agrccd'on a min imum pries of 66 cants to solve thin pro Warn. Further impressing the fact that non cotton product* are really paying for marketing tha crop, Mr. Morrison says: “Until vary recent years, not a dollars worth of them products ware ever charged up to cotton, or was seriously regarded as putt of tbs expense of its producting. Thousands of women and children, white as well as black, have worked in cotton fields, the major part of them andcr tha moat wretched conditions of poverty; yet, for the better part of half a century their labor was not even con sidered an item of expense in growing cottoa. Slavery Day Custom. This habit. Inherited from slavery days of giving cotton tha Wnefit of fre« labor and frec food, finally be came crystalixed into the convention al view, which has been for yean, more or less authoritative, and has to a considerable degree, intimidated the free expression of opinion regarding tW «oet of production. The fact ia, a strict accounting so aroused our ideas of the coat of production at compared with the views so based upon the slipshod met bods of the past—the real basis for the conventional view —that students from fear of criticism were for a long time reluctant to an nounce lh* result of their calcula tions, although Uiair findings were clearly justified by the rules of sound bookkeeping, and also, by the recog nlicd fact a* to tna value of th* product* In production.

QimUoned in i_rd m,_0,1* IHSr unhesitatingly declared, ac cording to Tho Grvensboro News, that Congress should pass a law to pre vent strikes in all enterprises, which I vc crptivd in intaritate commerce. | r cimpulsnvy arbitration would be written into the national statutes, he insisted, and the states also should as set laws to provide for similar pro hibition of strikes. "The psychological time baa arriv ed for as to hark back to fundament el principle*,” declared the governor. "The great trouble at pmeent be tween capital and labor i/ that the disease is being treated symptoms lically, not fundamentally. A salve, as it were, is being applied, and it proves efficacious In local infections, but you must remove the cause of this trouble. After healing one sore spot, the trouble presently breaks out more violently in some other pert of the body politic. We must dsvise tom; fundamental formula. "In my opinion the congressional ommiUee investigating tile steel strike had a wonderful opportunity ihe other day when Mr. Fltspatriek mid that if the steel company would ogre, to arbitration the men would Immediately return to work. The committee should have replied that such a proposition wonld find accept ance, provided the principle of arbi irution wcr0 made permanent, incor porated aa a bade part of the method of handling industrial quarrels. "In-other words, the committee should work for the early paasagt by Congress of a law providing for the arbitration of all industrial diigmtas between employes and employers In concerns whosa products ars handled in Industrial plants of that character.” Here tb* governor indicated that he is seriouply considering placing the matter before the special eesrioa of tho general assembly at Raleigh next summer, with a recommendation for enactment of a similar Inw. Al though he turn not yet resmhed n defin ite dechelon tn regard to the matter he declared that ne one should seek to minimise the importance of thf Question or to elude the inescapable net that remedial action la absolutely imperative. The beat start hi the direction of strike prevention ond compulsory ar bitration of the disputes between cap ital and labor may be made with the public utilities, declared Governor Bickett. The transportation system was denominated a "supreme necessity «f oar national lift.* Paralysis of ■ 'ho transportation system of the country, he pointed out, might result | In Incalculable hardships to the pa© pis. Including loss of Ufa as wall as of property, together with an economic loss that woald be beyond Kansan 'imputation. Public Has Sight. "If the tleup of transportation sys tems ta to ho permitted," exclaimed the governor, "government of the peo ylo, by the people and for the people ■halt perish from the earth.” The public also has certain inalien able rights, the governor stated, 'which many disputant* Kav. assid on ly tried to destroy. la industrial ,disputes the peoale have been giver ' little coneideratloa yet they suffer 1 Indescribably because of such dleor dcr.
