JORDAN FOR 15-CENT COTTON.!
Says Secretary Wilson Proves What
the Crop is Worth-He Will So
Atlanta, November 13.-President
Harvie Jordan of the Southern Cot
ton Growers association says:
"The open declaration tof Secretary
Wilson 6,iia:c the recent condition re
port is accurate and trustworthy and
which shows that the year's crop will
be in the neighlborhood of only 10,
ooo,ooo bales, should knock out all the
high estimates and put everybody
down on tbe wvrking basis of a short
The secretary's estimate confirms
the report made by this association
some time ago, predicting a crop of
about io,ooo.ooo bales. As this re
port is confirmed by accurate infor
mation from two or more reliable
sources, it is unquestionable that the*
remainder 'of the -crop now in the
hands of planters should not be mar
keted for 'less than 15 cents a pound.
I shall at once issue a proclamation
advising this course."

Policeman Sanders had had his eye
)n Ward for some time, but refrain-.
-d from arresting him sooner in or
ler that there might be no doubt as
to his 'guilt. The specially unfortu
ate aspect of the case is that the law
s it now -stands does not provide ed
equate punishment for such an out
rage as 'this, as' the limit is $xoo 'fine
or thirty days' imprisonment. It is to
be hoped that at its next session the
egislature will change the law so as
to make the minimum penalty six
months' imprisonment and $2oo fine.
