They Offer Large FhUnd to Handle
Crop so That REAdcrs of Cotton
May Receive Eeneti of ltise in
Price, at Same Time iaising Money
For Pressing Needs.
The announcerient was made in
New York on Tuesday, following con
ferences that have been in progress
for several days between protninent
bankers of New York and leading
representatives of the Souta. such as
Governor O'Neal, of Alabama; Clar

Colquitt, of Tex:as, and E. J. Watson.
president of the permnent Southern
Cottoa Congress. and contmissioner
of agriculture cf South Carolina, that
a proposition has been presented to
these gentlemen, representing, re
spectively. the Governor's conference
and- the Cotton Congress. composed of
producers and business men and
bankers of the South, which means
the placing in the cotton belt States
of about $50,000,000 immediately for
the handling of the cotton crop of

of the brokerage firm of S. H. Pell
& Co., of New York. .The financial
support of several of the strongest
banks in New York has been given
to the plan, the statement continues.
The plan proposes to advance the
grower $25 per bale upon his cotton.
based on the market value at the
time of the loan. No interest will be
paid upon the loan, the only charge
being $1 a bale, which is regarfed
as a legitimate minimum charge for
expense of grading anI handling. The
cotton Is not held, nor taken from
the channels of trade, but '3 placed
at the best advantage, The grower is
given the right to designate the day
of sale, price to January 1, 1913, and
will participate in any advance in
price to the extent of three-fourths of
the rise of the market.
"In other words, the proposition is
to give.the farmers $25 per bale ad
vance on-his cotton, without interest,
charging him only $1 per bale to
cover expenses of grading and hand
ling; letting him turn over the cotton
to the hol*mers, who will advance him
$25 per bale and.give him the oppor
tunity to desIgnate the date of the
sale, prior to January 1, 1913, and
to participate in any advance in price
to the extent of three-fourths of the
rise in the market.
"It is calculated that by the pres
ent ordinary holding prices the farm
er takes all the chances of the rise in
the market. By this plan he takes no
more chance than he did before and
has every oppor:urnity~ of maximumi
participation in a rise of the market,
meantime paring~ the debts he has to
pay and saving the losses s-.stained
by count--y Thm-e and by loss o:
weight and wzahou:2n charges.
"Provision is rad agains: any ap
parent violation of the Shernian anti
trust law, in that each committee
named by the Governor or commis
esoner of agriculture of each State
has the power to nante the day of
sale, if cotton reaches 12 or 13 cents,
which, according to the testimony
gathered, gives only a close legitimate
profit on the cost of prodvection.
"Of course, everything depends on
the acceptanlce of the plan by the
individual farmer, in connection with
his pledge to- reduce acreage the cor.1
ing year. -The individual farmer
alone can make success possible.
"The'undertaking is fathered by a
number of bankers, of which Col.
Robert M. Thompson is the head, he
being a widely known buli. and of the
Erm of S. H. PSll & Co., bankers arnd

The young girl was choked and
her clothes torn into shreds. It
seems as if the girl's father, who-runs
a small commissary for his farm,
near his house, was away from the
house, in a field about three hundred
yards from the store, when the at
timpt at assault took place. The
mother was not at the house at the
time. It seems that the negro Rivers
went to the house and askevd to buy
some shells for his shotgun, out of
the store. The young girl vent into
the ccmmissary and sold the man the
shells, some candy and several other
Then it was, she sayF., that he
choked and attempted to assault her,
but the screams of the terron.zed vie

negro became frightened and escaped
from the furious father into a bay
near the farm. The alarm soon
spread. Two deputy sheriffs, two
magistrates, several constables an!
about one hundred men started in
pursuit of the negro, who, it is
claimed, has been located in a bay
near the scene of the crinre.
