On the Use of Colhn The use of 100,000 or 200,000 bales of cotton per year in bagging for wrap- ping'cotton is not going lo liuvc any decisive influence on tlic cotton .market. But tlie use of cotton to wrap cotton is part of a program that is viliil to the welfare of the .Soulli's 'chief industry and to the prosperity ot this part of the country. • We must either sell more cotton or grow less of it. The progress thai is . being made in cotton growing in India,. ; Russia nnd elsewhere indicates that ; in the future foreign markets will ; present increasingly difficult compeli- •• tion. Expansion of the domestic inar- • ket is therefore the chief hope of Am- ...erican cotton growers, nnd the development of new uses for cotton must provide the major part of such expansion. By wrapping their cotton in cotton southern farmers will drive an important entering wedge in the light Unit must be waged for increased consumption of cotton. Insistence upon the cotton wrapper will reveal a loyalty lo their own interests and ti unity of purpose that will assure southern farmers consideration when jthey go to manufacturers of fertilizer, feed, flour, sugar and other products which the South buys with the request th;it these . goods be delivered to them in cotton sacks. It will stimulate research in the efficient use of cotton for numerous purposes, for as it is made known that cotton products are what an import". v Hiit ! jjart of the American buying public demands manufacturers will exert themselves to meet that demand. And it is not.unreasonable to suppose that as such research achieves results products will be developed which on merit alone, will find a ready market in other parts of this country and in other countries. ,, The South should bo exceedingly ." slow to condemn any movement for . increased use of cotton ;is economically unsound. It is true that cotton bagging and cotton sacks are slightly more expensive than competing materials. Cotton bagging costs more and is worth more. And the money that is paid for it stays at home.

Impartial lasts conducted by Hie government have demonstrated llinl cotton bag-ring <>( tlic typo which has heun adopted as the stamliml gives the bnlo holler protection lhan does jute. It affords better protection against lire, it weighs less, cotton does not adhere to it as it dots to jute, it presents it neater and more attractive appearance. An industry confronted with tlie difficulties in which the cotlon growers of this country have become involved does well to sit down and aiutly/u its operations. Savings in cosls at the expense of quality and efficient scrvjce are oflen expensive. II is just possible thai, all things considered, tlio cotton wrapper for the cotton bale will prove a sounder proposition economically than the jute, which seems to have little in its favor but the habit of years and a saving of a few cents ;t' bak> in initial cost. T Whcn Prosecutors "Bargain" The Wickersham Commission's survey of the administration of criminal justice in llie United Slates points out that a great source of evils is the custom which most prosecuting attorneys Inivc established of "bargaining" with criminals for pleas of guilty. That works out like this: a man is indicted for burglary, bill Ihe prosecutor is not quite sure he can gel a conviction. The; accused man, on the other hand, is afraid that maybe he will be convicled; so he talks things over and agrees to plead guilty to simple larceny —thereby getting a lighter sentence. Suck bargains are evcry-day affairs. In the long run they save .n good deal. of trouble and expense. Yet, as the commission points out, they open a great field for the "fixer." Furthermore, in a surprisingly large number of cascsj men indicted for serious crimes arc allowed to plead guilty lo minor offenses .and thus escape Ihe punishment they should gel. A certain amount of such bargaining is inevitable in any prosecutor's office. The commission does a public service, however, in pointing out the dangers inherent in the process.
