Atlanta. Oct. 9.-When the plan
adopted this afternoon by the Inter
national Conference of Cotton Grow- 1
ers and Spinners goes into effect the
cotton industry of the world, from
the time of the planting of the seed
to the time the mills turn out their
goods, will be under one great organ
ization of planters and spinners. The
international conference this after
noon decided to make their organiza
tion permanent, and in doing this,
will also invite the Continental Spin
ners' association of Europe and the
Sea Island Cotton Growers' associa
tion of the United States to become
affiliated bodies with the association
and to have representatives in the ex
ecutive committee which, under the
plan adopted,' is to be the governing
body of the international confer

to the action of the bodies now form

the two other great associations in

is little doubt that the action of the
conference will be approved by these

Vienna stated this afternoon that de
legates from all organizations will be
invited to attend.
The conference at its sessions to
day took action that it is believed
will soon result in a vast improve

cotton into shape for handling by the
spinner- with a consequent saving to
them e- . y $25,000,000 a year, now
lost, it has been asserted, by reason of
slipshod methods of baling.
A sharp 'fight was made over Con
gressman Heflin 's resolut>ion calling
on the United States congress and
the British parliament to regulate
cotton speculation, but the matter
Swas finally referred to the different
bodies for independent action. Two
of t.he affiliated bodies, the Farmers'

cotton speculation was an evil, yet
