USE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11th.
COTTON GINNED TO NOVE'-KBER 1.
Nearly Ten 3illion Bales, All Records
Surpassed-Exact Total, Accord
ing to Report of Census
Washington, Nov. 8.-With a total of
9,968,172 bales of cotton of the growth
of 1911 ginned prior to November 1, as
announced today by the census bureau,
the p?omised record-breaking cotton
crop of this season is fast being made
ready for the maiufacturer. At no
time in the history of the American
cotton industry has so great a crop
been ginned to this time of the year.
The amount ginned ,to November 1
exceeds by 1,777,000 bales that ginned
in 1908, the previous record. It also
is greater. than the ginning to Novem
ber 14 of any year, being about 200,
000 bales' more than was Vnned to
that date in 1904, the record year.
Ibis would indicate that the crop was
at least two weeks earlier in matur
ing and reaching the gins than in pre
* Possibly Fourteen Killion.
Calculations of the year's total crop,
,based on the ginning reports would,
therefore, probably be morp accurate
if figured on the November 14 reports
of other years. In previous record
years, about 50 per cent of the total
crop has been ginned to that date. and
a rough estimate of this year's crop
inight be placed at a minimum of 14,
600,000 bales. Commercial experts' es
timates, however, range -up to more
than 15,000,000 bales.

ginning report of the season, showing

Columbia, Nov. 8.-The right of the
overnor to extend clemency to pris

oday, 'by the -action of Governor
3ease In granting a parole to Bratton

ibbes, with ~members of the city
ouncil, was discussing the condition
f the prisoner, whe Chief Cathcart
etered the room with a parole for
Pettigrew from the governor, thus end
ng the discussion.
City Attorney Benet has been asked
y the mayor to render an opinion on

and pardons after conviction, in such

South Carolina, says: "In any case
that may be deemed proper by the gov
ernor hie may suspend sentence or
parole any prisoner u.pon such terms
or conditiotis as he may deem just in
the exercise of executive clemency."
