TO COTTON GROWER AND BUSI
. NESS MEN OF THE SOUTH.
With only partial and crude organi
zation hnrridely perfected last Febru
ary, the Southern Cotton Association
has saved millions./of dollars for the
South in maintaining the price of cot
?t good figures, brought to the bar of
Justice certain officials iii the United
States Department of Agriculture at
Washington for manipulating the cot
ton reports, started a tidal wave of
research and investigation into the
uses and value of the South's great
staple to the spinners and consumers
of the world and built up an organi
zation which is today feared and res
pected throughout; the cotton trade of
Europe and America.
If all these things could be accom
plished in a few months under well
nigh insurmountable difficulties, much
more can be done in the interest of
the growers of the South through
systematic organization in every cotton
growing country and the loyalty and
support of the cotton producers and
business interests of the South. Each
individual is an important factor in
the creation of an organization pow
erful enough to maitain the suprem

The world's colton trade is com
bined against the producers of cotton.
The values of their staple which the
entire civilized world depends upon
for clothing is made a daily football
to- be kicked about at will in the spec
ulative exchanges of the country. No
product from the soil is more useful
to mankind, none receives harsher
treatment at the hands of the buying
and speculative world. The farmers
of the South have solved the problem
of its production through individual
effort. They can likewise solve the
problem of its marketing by full and
Systematic organization through the
Southern Cotton Association. For the
Association to be effective it must
have tlie active support and co-opera
tion of the growers iii every cotton
producing county. It has received the
i the entire press of the country, the
business interests and all other Far
mer's Organizations in the South.
The specific object of the Associa
tion is to regulate the supply of raw
cotton to meet the legitimate demands
of consumption and maintain the
price of the staple at profitable fig
ures to the grower; to encourage pro
per facilities for handling the staple
both as to finance and storage; to
seek and open up wider markets for
the consumption of our colton; to
bring about direct trade regulations
with (he spinners of the world; to
furnish "the growers correct informa
tioii as to acreage iii cotton each year,
j condition of plant during growing sea
sons, the yield of each crop and its
, distribution; tlie cost of handling,
eost of manufacture, price of cotton
goods and every' phase and detail of
the cotton industry. The association
will advise each planter the mnimum
value of his staple each year and ad- :
: vise and assist him in getting its true
worth. The association will place all
this information in the hands of its
members so as to keep them posted as
to an intelligent understanding of the
value of the" staple and the best ways
aud means to secure practical and
profitable recuits. The past wo?k o?
the association has proven already its

FIERCE ELECTION CONTEST
William Randolph Hearst Contests the
New York Election, Charging Fraud
New York, Special.-Immediately
upon thc announcement of the result
of thc election Tuesday, Mr. Hearst
gave notice of contest, and evidences
of fraud have accumulated rapidly
At?orney General Mayer stated
Thursday night that he had received
information of the recovery from the
North river of certain ballot boxes
used in the election . He said the
matter was under investigation.
The contest over .the mayoralty
election, inaugurated hy William Ran
dolph Hearst, the Municipal Owener
ship candidate, developed interesting
and spectular features Thursday.
For twelve hours the boxes contain
ing, nearly 600,000 ballots cast in last
Tuesday's election choked the streets
in the vicinity of the headquarters of
the hoard of electors in Sixth avenue
between Forty-first and Forty-second
streets. The ballot boxes had heen
gathered during the night by the
police and conveyed in patrol wagons
to the election board's headquarters.
There the officials refused to receive
the .ballot boxes and the police, acting
under a court order signed by Justice
Gayiior, compelling the police authori
ties to turn the ballots over to the
election board, had nothing to do but
remain outside and await the pleas
ure of the election officials.
COMPELLED TO RECEIVE BOXES
Appraised of the situation the at
torneys of Mr. Hearst appeared be
fore Justice Dickey of the State Su
preme Court, and secured fronrhiman
ord?r compelling John R. Voorhis,
president of the board of electors, to
accept thc boxes. The order was ser
v?d promptly and the ballots then
were receipted for by the election
board. Under strong guards the pat
rol wagons containing the boxes were
driven to various warehouses in this
I city and Brooklyn, where the ballots
were stored subject to the orders of
the election board.
State Attorney General Julius May
er had a long and important confer
ence with District Attorney Jerome,
after which it was announced that the
Attorney General's office would re
main open until midnight. Superin
tendent of Elections Morgan appeared
before Messrs. Mayer and Jerome with
six of his deputies, and placed evi
dence before the prosecuting officials.
. Another feature of the contest was
the announcement by thc Citizens'
Union that it would join the forces
investigating the charges of fraud and
wrong doing at Tuesday's election, its
prime object being to secure a new
election law in the State of New
PRINTED BOGUS BALLOTS.
Mr. Hearst's order was obtained
ffiflg aifefi&y (ft.;,4r?y-car>fey,--r^- tft?^
culation of a story that a printing
firm had been turning ont large num
beds of fae simples of the official bal
lot and that these were to be marked
for McClellan and placed in thc bal
lot boxes in place of the Hearst bal
lots to be removed. The moment this
rumor reached Hearst headquarters it
was decided that the ballot ought not
to" remain longer in the station
houseSj and the application of Justice
Gaynor was made as quickly as the
papers could be drawn up.
. lt was reported thal many of the
ballot boxes in Brooklyn .were not
properly sealed and that their covers
were merely pasted down making it
possible for any person to open the
box and close it again without' detec
tion. The law requires that the boxes
be closed with wax.
Among the allies aiding Hearst is
William M. Ivins, the Republican can
Jidate for mayor in Tuesday's clec
;ion. Mr. Ivins volunteered his services
to Mr. Hearst and the offev was ac
iepted. Another attorney acting for
Eearst is Judge John F. Dillon, who
ivas at one time Judge of the Supreme
3ourt of Iowa.

Wilkesbarre, pa., Special.-Five
persons were killed, 10 seriously in

HIS EDITORIAL QUICKLY READY,
New York Paper Tells Good Story on
A certain editorial writer on the
staff of a Southern newspaper was in
clined to dilatoriness during certain
periods of conviviality, and caused
thereby much concern in the breast of
the foreman of the composing room
just prior to the moment when the
fo/ms must go to press. But the writ
er was a part owner of the paper and
could not well be discharged, since he
occupied the position of managing ed
itor. Many times the editorials were
late and the paper delayed in going to
press, but the delinquent writer al
ways made good after a fashion.
Finally he hit upon a scheme when he
was called upon at. the last, moment

expediency, be called the art of gen
The hour was very late and no lead

)nly after half an hour was he located
-in a near-by saloon and much the
*rorse for his dalliance there. He
?rasped the intelligence that he had
brgotten his leading column, and
nade his way as fast as he could to
ils office. Snatching a piece of copy
?aper in one hand, he caught up a
;opy of the New York Times with the
itber, and from it clipped a leading
ditorial, which he pasted on the pa
ter. Then he wrote:
"We cannot agree with the New
fork Times when it says:"
The editorial of the Times was cop
ed, the paper went to press, and the
ditor back to the saloon.-New York
