Hy the death ov this powerful
ruler, Mahomet Bey wuz left without
a rival in Egypt. But he knew that
changes might come. He felt sure
that Turkey would attempt to re
gain a footin' in Egypt the moment
th war with Russia ended. For some
time no Egyptian tribute had been
sent to Turkey. Though Mahomet
Hey had no friendship for that coun
try, he made great professions in
that way, even goin' so far az to re
mit a large sum ov money on account
ov back dues in the way of taxes.
Hut this did not end the matter. The
Egyptian ruler wuz tryin' to get dis
entangled from Turkey and that
country wuz lookin' forward to the
time when free from war, to attempt
to compel Egypt to renew the alli
ance or go to war.
The Empress ov Russia had ob
tained vast territory from -Turkey,
includin' the Crimea, Circassia and
Georgia. The fleets ov Russia were
allowed to cruise in the Black Sea.
Awl this weakened Turkey and hit
appeared that the recovery ov Egypt
wuz a necessity.
A Turkish fleet arrived at Alexan
dria and landed 25,000 men. A bat
tle soon followed, the affair takin'
place on the plain between Rosetta
and Grand Cairo. The Mamelukes
took an active part and az the Turks
knew nothin' ov their irregular style
of fightin, they caused much confu
sion. But the Turks won.
About the year 1796 Napoleon
Bonaparte began to play a big hand
in Europe. In fact he had whipped
nearly everything in site by that date.
But he had gotten France to a point
where she needed a bit ov rest she
had worn herself out whippin' other
countries. Bonaparte appeared in
the English Channel az if lookin' fer
big game, and he wuz. But some
months later he appeared at Toulon,
France, and an expedition bound for
Egypt wuz fitted out. One ov the ob
jects sought wuz for France to get
possession ov the East India trade.
It wuz intended to plant French col
onies along the river Nile and regain
territory to compensate France in the
loss ov St. Domingo and the sugar
growin' islands and to open the way
for a better French trade in Africa,
Arabia and Syria. Egypt wuz to be
the seat ov much, ov the military
power ov France and India wuz one
ov the rich prizes regarded az a lift
to the French nation. Hit iz not im
probable that certain high French
aspirants wished to get rid ov Na
poleon, for hiz popularity wuz great
at the time. On March the 5th Bona
parte received permission to move
for Egypt and he wuz given a free
hand az to what he might do, and he
wuz to hev absolutely the entire as
sistance ov the French nation. Prob
ably no warrior ever had so much
privilege, unless hit wuz our own
great Washington. But Washington
had many opponents and they made
charges against and constantly tnea
to interfere with and defeat the plan
ov Washington. Not so With Napo
leon. He wuz boss from start to fin
ish. England sent Lord Nelson with
a fleet to intercept Napoleon's fleet.
But Nelson wuz delayed by a great
storm and the French fleet gained
Bonaparte soon reached the is
land ov Malta and landed about 4,

From thek first moment that I wa
entrusted with the Presidency of this
great organization, it has always
been my effort to avoid the note of
the alarmist or the sensationalist.
But the time ha come to speak
plainly regarding a matter that is of
the first importance not only to the
farmers of the South, but as well to
business men and the peop.e of
the South generally. ,
it nas not escaped the attention of
the more thoughtful that an English?
syndicate recently acquired a large j
acreage of fine cotton lands in onei1T . ... ,
of the central Southern States. j Umon Republican.
The tacit purpose Is to produce!
cotton on these lands for English
spinners, thus avoiding dependence
upon the Southern cotton farmer.
If this were just one Instance, it
need not occasion concern.
But it has come to my attention
that similar negotiations axe on foot
in other portions of the Cotton Belt
What is more significant, I am also
informed that foreign spinners gen
erally are contemplatnig the advis
ability of buying large tracts in the
Southern States, and produce their
Of course, in each one of these
cases the most scientific methods
will be employed, as much cotton will
be raised to the acre as the special
ist can extort, rotation and fertiliza
tion will be used to retain the rich
ness of the soil, and the latest im
proved farm machinery will be on
We cannot censure foreign spin
ners for projecting this movement.
It is simply a business proposition
It should also be a business prop
osition with the South to take cog
nizance of a movement that may
throw the balance of power in our
so-called "monopoly" of cotton into
the hands of foreigners.
And such is the inevitable conclu
sion of the policy under debate by
Eglish and continental spinners.
Hundreds upon thousands of
Southern farmers would be compell
ed to compete upon the open mar
ket with a product raised by the
buyers upon our own soil and by
the most improved methods.
The demand for native-grown cot
ton would dwindle as these foreign
owned farms came into their full
Prices might, probably would, be
controlled by mill interests as abso
lutely as they used to be controlled
by cotton exchange operators before
the days of the Farmers' Union.
The penalty would not be confined
to the farmer.
It would be visited in a greater or
less degree upon every business in
the Southern States, since Southern
business and cotton are, as yet, in
separable financial factors.
The stream of gold now coming in
to the South each year from Europe
would be lessened. Cotton, which is
now one of the country's greatest re
liances for preserving the itnerna
tional balance on the right isde,
would lose much of Its vitality in
I am speaking temperately, he
cause this menace is yet no larger
than a man's head. We can avert it,
and we must go about the task with
Conditions under a general inva
sion of foreign land buyers would be
disastrous. The absentee landlord
ism that is making life such a strug
gle in England, and more of a strug
gle in Ireland, might he reproduced
n a proportionate scale in . this
The one way is for Southern farm
ers to acquire their own acres and,
what is of equal importance, to use
upon them the most scientific of cul
tural methods. It is a case of fight
ing the devil with fire.
We may as well face the truth
no as later. And the truth Is that
reach a genuine business basis until
every farmer makes every acre re
turn its maximum, until he reduces
the cost of production to a minimum
and raises iiis own food products.
You may ask how this is to be
done when hundreds of thousands of
farmers do not own their own farms
or are under obligations . to . land
