THE ROUND BALE TRUST,
Fairfield,, S..C, News and Herald.
No one questions that the present ;
system of packing cotton for the
markets needs improvement. A casual 1
observer will notice the great loss I
by ware and tare in handling the i
square bale as it is generally packed i
and brought to market The round :
Jale may bean improvement, though !
many competent authorities are con-
demmn? it. isut the machinery for :
turning out the round bale is in the i
hands of a big trust, the American i
Cotton Company. t
Considerable literature pro and con
ias been sent broadcast throughout :
the country. With the light before
us, we are not kindly disposed io wards
the round bale trust. ' It appears to be
tfthftmft nracticallv to control the
business. The American Cotton Com
pany do not, and will not, sell the
machinery outright, but the company '
eases the outbt something on the
plan of the Bell Telephone Company,
and similar concerns. "We have before
us. a copy of the contract which gin-
ners of the round bale are required to
sign. The contract in the main is in
favor of the trust. The farmer or the
ginner must pay, "as rentals or royal
ties, for the use of the said machines,
at the rate of twenty cents per 100
pounds of bales turned out by. said
machines," rendering a report to the
company on tne &tn aay oi eacii
month. The Company practically
takes charge t the vast busiy
ness of ginning and 'packing
cotton. The company "shall be
'decreed," reads the contract, "to
have control of the manufacture
shall at all times have full
and free access to the property." If
in any one year the royalties fall be-
ow $1,000, the trust mayrefuse to re
new tno contract ior anoiner year,
unless the ginner willpay "for such
preceding year a sum which, added
to the royalties alceady paid for such
year, shall aggregate equal to $1,000
minimum." This feature alone should
kill the trust. For instance, & ginner
f AAA 1 A i i
pays one yea, say j?,wu, royalty; me
next year is a poor crop, and he pays
only $500 The trust can then require
him tosurrender the machinery and
go out of business, unless the ginner
willpay $500 to make up tbe $l,uuu.
Bps having paid the $2,000 the first
ear is of no advantage to mm. me
royalty must at least be $1,000 in a
bad crop year, no matter how much
more it may have been in a good year.
The whole system points to placing
the cotton crop in the hands of this
trust. Samples of every bale turned
out must be sent to the trust.
Other points in the contract are
equally objectionable, if not more so.
The farmer nas nis Land tied now,
and we cannot advise him to allow
this trust to put a rope around his

NINE RICH MEN IN NORTH CAROLINA
Out of every ten commenced life poor. They became rich by
spending less than they made. No one gets rich who does not
spend less than he makes. Every young man of ordinary ,
ability in Wilmington can and should save something each .
month. The man who will not save a portion of a small salary
will npt save a portion of a large salary. The boy who saves
something every month will be promoted before the boy who
spends all he makes. True manhood Is required to deny one's
self and save. It is weakness and folly to soend all, regardless
of the "rainy day." INDUSTRY, ECONOMY and INTEGRITY
UAU8E PROSPERITY not "LUCK" or "GOOD FORTUNE."
