puny has been called for the near future
at Jersey City to act upon a resolution of
the directors providing for an Increase of
20000000 In the authorized capital of that
corporation thus mnkli g the total capital
50000000 This action Is a result of tho
current plans of the company In securing
cotton oil properties with a view to secur
ing supplies of cotton seed meal from
which nmmonlatcs are derived A circular
sent to the stockholders by tho director tet
forth that the company has been figurine
a long tlrao on some plan by which It
conld secure the nmmonlales of which It
consumes about 2000000 worth annually
In the most economical manner It 1
pointed out that the quantity of am
monlates alone would Justify the company
In going Into the cotton seed oil busluess
but aside from that It lb when properly
conducted Intrinsically a profltiime busi
ness and would have the further advantage
of placing the company more closely lu
touch with the fertilizer tiade It Is for
the purpose of buying up established cotton
oil mills or establishing new ones that the
capital stock of the company Is to bo In
creased to 10000000
The United Cotton Oil company has re
cently incorporated under New Jursoy law
with 12000TiKO capital stock Presumably

Washington July 11 In loffll democratle
elrcles tho platform adopted yesterday ty
the Ohio democrats at Columbus la gen
erally approved An Ohio democrat said
today Became we did not Indorse Bryan
In our platform or mention the Kanaas
City platform doei not mctu that Mb
Bryan has loit ils hold on the Ohio dV
rooeracy It simply means that we recog
nize tho fnet that the lsoes of 1008 are
not the iMiues of today and we helleve wo
can elect our ticket on atato iesues So
far as nllver Is concerned that question has
been relegated to the rear by reason of iha
Immense luereawi In tho output of gold
The time has arrived for us to carry
Ohio and to do so uo most present a solld
front to tho enemy and that can only bo
done by abandoning the Ituute of 1900 and
confining tho campaign to local affairs Wo
have not elected democratic governor
Since 1880 and therefore we believe It 1b
our time to win The democrat who held
aloof In JHBfl and 1000 have returned to
Che fold and the little differences existing
among the leaders have been hurled nnd
wo are thoroughly united which IS more
than can be said of the republicans
