DEMOCRATS DECIDE TO RE

UNTIL SENATE ACTS

(By. Associated' Press )
Washington, Jilly. 1.--Senate Dem?
ocra ts In conference .late todav adopt
ed a resolution declaring their pur*
p?se to stay in session until the trust
legislation passed"-by the house has
been acted upon by the senate. Tho.
resolution does'not bind -senators to
vote tor the bills without ?jphecge.'.: ;':
. TN; resolution is designed to servo
definite and' tinah notice to business
npd the country, that anti-trust legis
lation is to be passed before congress
quits',-Washington, lt was proposed
by Senator Stone after a talk with
President Wilson,and-with other dem.
ocratic leaders.' Senator Stone said
it was intended aa an .answer to the.
propaganda for immediate ". adjourn
ment of congress.
t If party leaders" d?cid? in the fu
ture that U will be ecessary to.make
party mocares of .'the three house
bills or the substitutions offered for
them, another conference, will ba held
for the purpose of binding democrats
to definite legislation. Some senators
thought; the resolution might bind
senators to vote for the bills but Sen
ator Kern, chairman .of thc conference
declared such was not Ita purpose and
a clause stating this in specific terms
The resolution says:
"Resolved, -that the*.'conference, of
democratic senators ?tier due co n s ld -
eration, hereby declares th*'J the prqa
|nt ee^H^^^qugreso si oj?bl^ptyid
It hames the trade commission, the
railroad securities and the Clayton an.'
ti-trust bills as the mearyrea to be in
cluded. - The explanatory clause at
tached to the resolution reads:
"The resolution hereinbefore adopt
ed IB intended merely as an expres
sion of the purpose of the majority
party in reference to adjournment."
Senators who hope to get away from
Washington, with tn six weeks or tfc'i!
ihoni?a comfort in the announcement
from the conference that Senator
Kern, Majority Leader, will aak the
Senate to hold night serions, next
At the same timo Senator Lewis, the
Democratic "whip," wai- instructed to
keep a . quorum present 'at ill times.
These facts indicate an intention by
the majority to press the trade com
mission bill to a vote as soon as pos
sible and to put the appropriation
bills through when, opportunity offers.
The trade commission, .bill is before
the Senate and a vote may be asked
Bills in Committee.
The railroad securities bili and the
Clayton bill still are in committee.'
but lt ls possible.that one may be re
ported aa soon as ll b?comes apparent
the commission bill is nea.- passage.
Some leaders hope ad/ourament can
be taken with ?iie *o.;.*ai:i . ..rapUite
by August 2Q or September 1.
The conference' was > harmonious
Several .Senators expressed dissatis
faction with provisions In some of the
hills, but lt wa? made clear no one
was' bound to vote for any particular
bill. Tho only Indication that there
: was a marked division of sentiment
came'when the clause was proposed
explaining that tho resolution refers
to adjournment; It waa adopted 17 to
16, Its. friends declared it was of
fered to make plain the action/ to act
oh'trust, legislation and without bind
ing anyone td. a particular form. There
; was n general discussion as to wh?in
er the resolution should Include lan
guage declaring the billa to be party
measures, but it was decided to leave
this question - for further- conferences.
Originally it was Intended that- the
resolution declar? that the congress
stay until the. "passage" of the bills,
but this waa changed to read "dispon
ai." The argument for, this change
was that passage might be taken. to*
mean the three honee bills tnuBt bel

^Washington, July 1.- Atotal area
of JJR.ycp.OOO acres of cotton is in cul

department of agriculture announced
today. This compares with 37,458,000

on May 25. this year, 81.8 per cent op

The month' began with one of the
severest drouths ever known In the
edstein portions of the cotton belt. It
greatly retarded growth, of early
planted cotton and delayed the ger
mination of late planted. In the west
ern portions of the belt thc first week
of the month was excessively, wet?
This prevented any improvement in
the plants and made cultivation and
netter conditions prevailed during !
the second weok, the plant making !
good progress in the eastern and cen
tral portions of the belt, while lu thc
western portion had the most favor- !
