H'S RESOLUTION ADOPTED.
emands That Attorney General In
Testigate Sellers of Spot Cot.
ton That Does not Exist.
Washington, April 29.--"The in
vestigation into the sales of cotton
-which Attorney General Wickersharn
is conducting, has cost the American
people nearly $40,000,000."
So asserted Senator Smith, of
South Carolina, in the senate today.
He was making a speech in the
hope of persuading the senate to
adopt the resolution, directing the
Attorney General to ascertain the
names of the persons who sold the
cotton to the New York pool.
Mr. Smith said that, whereas only1
$40,000,000 worth of manufactured
goods had been exported last year,
$60,000,000 worth of raw cotton had
been sent abroad. This year the cot
ton exportation, he said, will be about
"Investigate the Sellers."
"The Attorney General is investi
gating the sales of spot cotton. I
want him to investigate the sellers
-to find out who were engaged in
.trying to put down the price. I want
him to inquire as to the gentlemen
who got together and sold the cotton
'without having it to sell. His inves
tigation, so far as it has gone, has
depressed the price to the extent of
a cent a pound, a total cost to the
people at large of forty million dol
lars. Let 4im extend the inquiry so
-as to show the real facts."
Speaking sarcastically, Mr. Smith
"If the Attorney General must con
duct an investigation, let him inves
tigate the chief of the weather bu
reau for bringing on the recent
frost, and if that is not conclusive,
let him go higher and investigate Je
hovah himself for ruining the cotton
crop of the present season."
He went on:
"I believe, and the South believes,
.that this interference at this time is
for the specific purpose of relieving
certain sears on the cotton market."
The Resolution Adopted.
He declared machinations on thv
stock exchange were in the interest
I of foreign Nbuyers. He said on ac
count of the scarcity of seed it would
be impossible to plant more than 65 ,
per cent of the average cotton cro9
for the present year.
'.T.he resolution was adopted. It di
:~ rects the attorney general to inquire
.as to the names of the "party or
parties, or corporations, that sold the
cotton alleged to have been bought
I .Ly a pool of purchasers, who are
.now under investigation by the de
partment of justice;" "also as to the
prices, whether or not they owns 1
the cotton at the time of the sale
thereof, and the price of spot cotton
in the South on the date of the con
Duty is on County Officials, Not Rail
There is complaint from time t
time to the railroad commission re
garding the condition of railroad
.grade crossings, and it is thoughi to I
.be .not unlikely that some of .ie
dfrghtfu1 accidents which have oc- J
curred at these crossings would have
*been avoided had the law been strict
ly enforced regarding them. And
~yet the duty of seeing that they are
kept in proper and safe condition is
on tie Uounty commissioners, aQi-1
thiere is no need to appeal to the rail
-, road commission and thereby wasteI1
a-~juable time, I
--An act passed by the last legisle-'
ture makes the law still stronger and
puts it within the power of any road
overseer to promptly compel any
proper complaint to be promptly re
The matter is constantly growing
mor e important with the rapid
growth of the use of the automobile.
'TLhe new law is uovted in full so as (
sto put travelers of dirt roads in pos-j
.session of all the information neces
.sary to protect themselves:
"It shall be the further duty of
.such ocerseer to cause each railroad
company to construct and keep in:
~good r.epair the roadbed of all pub
.lie reads across the roadbed of said
railroad company, and when the
tratks of a railroad company now or
hereafter crosses a public road, shall
cause such railroad company to con
struct and maintatin the approaches,
-to said grade crossings on a grade
-not to exceed 5 per cent., and that
the highway shall be on a level grade
for not less than 12 feet on either
side of the central line of said rail
way; and if any railway company,
being duly warned by the overseer of
the proper district, by leaving a writ
ten notice with any station agent of
maid railroad company, .shall neglect
)r refuse to construct or repair such
roadbed to the acceptance of the
Dverseer, shall forfeit not exceeding
$50 nor less than $30, to be recover
ed by an action at the suit of the
township or county board of commis
sioners before a magistrate of the
county, and the money so collected
shall be paid to the county treasurer
to become a part of the county road
fund; and every five days such rail
road company, after being duly noti
fied, shall neglect or refuse to con
struct or repair said road, shall be
deemed an additional offense against
the provisions of this section."
THE BULLS ON TOP.
200,000 Bales of Spot Cotton Bought
in Thirty Minutes for $15,000,
New York, April 29.-With a pool
of $30,000,000 behind him, Patten,
Scales and Brown stood firm today
and met the enormous flood of cot
ton that was hurled at them with
spot cash. Within thirty minutes af
ter\the opening of the exchange coh
tract deliveries of 200,000 bales had
been made. The $15,000,000 that
this involved was forthcoming im
mediately, most of it from the big
bulls to whom the bulk of the cotton
was billed. Today's early deliveries
smashed the notice day record more
than twice over. Heretofore 97,000
bales was the high mark. The situa
tion is in the hands of the bull clique.
and they can make their victory as
onerous to the- bears as they wish.
