I COLFON GROWING. The Geographical Society of Stefbourne have urged the advantages of -^North Australia for Cotton growing. btit tthough millions of afcres may be suitable 'for this ¡I purpose thfe country has no population to carry on its 'cultivation. tfhÐ pr4ndice in Australia against cheap or immigrant labour both prevents the development of its natural resources and keeps its population stationary. Nowhere in the world is cotton grown in any quantity by white labour. In America it depends entirely upon the negro population, and in Egypt and India upon native labour. It would be quite impossible for Queensland to compete with these sources of supply, except by importing colored labourers, and it is therefore to British West Africa, where labour is cheap and plentiful, that Lancashire manu- facturers will look for new sources of supply of the raw material. The distress in Lan- cashire, consequent upon the gambling in American cotton, will not be wholly an evil if, as seems likely, it leads to the general cultivation of the plant in that part of the world.
