The President's Address.
President 1acColl opened the pro
ceedings by a brief address in which
lie expressed the view that the meet
in- would throw much light upon the
problems that confront the cotton in
dustry in this country and at the same
time assist in a better understanding
among the representatives of the sev
eral interests. Among these problems
he enumerated the ques:ion of an
ample supply of cotton for the world's
needs; the stability of price; specula
tion; the better handling of cotton;
the accuracy of government crop re
ports. Mr. MacColl did not believe
that American manufacturers wanted
to see a low-priced cotton that was
improfitable to the Southern grow
rs. whom he thiought were entitled
to a fair and ample profit. At the
same time he felt that economy should
be practieed and improvements made
in the growing of cotton in order
that the price might be reduced with
out reducing the margin of profit.
Representative Livingston, of Geor..
ia, took exception to the opening
emarks of MIr. M1acColl and said that
they were unfair to the growers of
The afternoon session was presided
over by Harvey Jordan, president of
Ithe Southern Cotton Asociation, who
addressed the convenition on the cot

it t'o the spinners and manufacturers
for ititiating the conference and that
in considering the relations between
the growers and the spinners whatever
affected the cotton production would
rea~ict disastrioushy upon the spinning
indulstry and vice versa. The grow
ers and the spinners, lie addad. had
been strangers too long. "Divided,
thev have been the prey of and have
Ito 'submit to, the dominating and
disasterous effects of hte buying and
speulaijn influtences of the world.''
This unsatisfactory condition, he de
larei. would continue so long as it
was permitted. lie asserted that the
