'FIGHT AGAINST WHISKEY.
* District of Columbiar-Decision
s to Freight Rates Favor New
By-dames S. McCarthy.
ashington, D. C., May 20.-When
convenes in December an
o~ik effort will .be made by temper
allte' people inl every section of th*
$untry to drive whiskey from the
I.taI 'city. Such an effort was
de during the last congress, but
the 'whiskey and beer interests filled
Ihe city of Washington with lob.
i*sts who threatened to defeat the
publican party in several closely
c;ntested States if tje leaders ed
iUt party in Congress did not kil
the proposed legislation. The threatE
of the whiskey lobbyists frightenei
the RepubIbican leaders into defeat
ing the bill, but such a storm of pro
test was raised throughout the coun.
try that those interested in this greal
temperance movement are confideni
that the next congress will pass a
bill prohibiting the sale of liquor ir
any form in the Dist.rict of Colum
bia. The temperance people are ful.
ly aroused to the situation and al
ready and Members of Congress arc
receiving letters by the score urging
them to vpte to drive John Barley
corn from' the seat of the Nationa
In an opinion by Commissione:
Lane, of the interstater commereA
commission, handed down on May 11
t was held that the cotton mills o
ewi England are entitled to advan
ages in freiight rates over the cot.
on mills of the so"nn because o
heir close proximity to New Yorl
?1 nd other Atlantic .ports. The ef
leet of this opinion will work grea
injury to the cotton mills of th
south, and the great export trade il
cotton piece goods between southerr
mills and oriental countries will b
badly crippled. The railroads o
the south prior to the enactment o
the Hephurn railroad rate regulatioi
law had been in the habit of inakini
frei:ht rates on. cotton piece good
from southern points to New Yorl
as low and lower than rates on th
,ane elass of roods fron New Eng
land to New York and to this fNe
was due the g'reat pro'perity of tlh
south in tihe cotton mlilling industry
In view of the opinlionl of the comu
mission referred to it is well to cal

M'LAURIN IN COTTON rIGHT.
He is Assistant Coufisel in The Price
Suit.-Retained to Represent the
Interests of the Southern
News and Courier.
Columbia, May 17.-The flight
which is now being waged over the
conduct of the New York Cotton Ex
change is interesting all those in this
section who are concerned as to cot
ton prices and conditions. Additional at
interest is given the matter when it th
is known that one of 'the attorneys
representing the Southern Cotton As
sociation in its fight is Hon. John L.
MeLaurin, formerly Senator from ar
South Carolina. Mr. McLaurin, who It'
is a large cotton planter and inter- an
ested also in cotton mill enterprises, scl
is t4horoughly posted on cotton con
ditions and has recently spent a good
deal of time in New York watching
Ithe Cotton Exchange situation. A few
days ago Presiden-t Harvie Jordan
wrote him tire following letter:
May 15, 1907.
I-Ion. John L. McLaurin, New
York.--Dear Senator: I have just
reached New York today and leave JN
for Europe tomorrow. I am very
much gratified to know that in ac
cordance With any earlier request you
Ihave already consented to ,become
actively engaged in behalf of the
Southern Cotton Association in the JA
fight against the New York Cotton
Exchange. You are a Southerner and
sufficiently acquainted with the cot
ton interests of the south to know Ca
bhat the policy of the New York Cot
ton Exchange has not only been a
depressing factor upon the price of
spot cotton, but has caused direct
loss to hundreds of legitimate cotton
buyers, who during the past winter
have undertaken to liedg,e their con
tr.iets througi that Exchange. These
fhels are notorious. T feel that you
will exert every effort inl your powV
er to se'ure the issiance of a legiti
mate contract byA the New York Cot
ton Exehiange which Nill protect all
parties who wislh to buy or sell cot
Lon through the Exchanges. As a
loyal nember of. the Southern Cotton
