"Mrs. Morris called at the executive
fiice Thursday at about 1 o'clock and
asked to be allowed to see the prCsi

engaged with the president. and Mr.
Barnes saw her. Upon inquiry as to
the nature of her business she stated
with considerable reluctance that her

from a branch of the war department;
A that she did not propose to have c.ny
thing to (10 with the secretary of

"She was informed that the presli

to such a matter and that the doIom
lon of the secretary of war would he

wasi out of the question.
'.'She r-eplied in a low voice that
she would see him and that she would
stay ther-e until she did. She was then
!IdviCOed to dirop) the matter and go

tones, , she r-efusedi to - (do. She was

SIXTEEN ACRES TO PLO%
Is Pledge of Georgia Farmera Made
at Annual Meeting of State got
ton Associtalon in Atlanta.
District organizers will be sent intc
each congressional district of the state
to more strongly organize the Geor
gia division of the Southern Cottoii
Asociation in every county of Geor
gia during 1906, and the work will bc
pushed as it has not been bofor
since the association was organized.
This important stel) was deternine l
upon by the Georgia division, which
met in annual convention at the stata
capitoi in Atlanta Wednesday.
Among other resolutions passed by
the convention was one prescribing a
pledge for the Georgia niemibers that
they will not, during 1906, plant more&
than 16 acres of cotton to the plow.
and that they will besides raise at
home a full supply of provisiotis for
Pi esident M. L. Johnson and prac
tically all of the old officers of the
Georgia division were re-eleted to
serve during the new year.
Every speaker had something to
say about the prosperous conditions
prevalent in the state, and alluded
to the fact that there is more money
In the country now than there has
been since 1860.
This was particularly noticeable in
the strong address of President Jor
dan, who also warned the association
against the danger of allowing poli
tics to enter its deliberations, because
the history of other associations of a
like character showed their wreck had
been due to this very fact.

Jordan for re-election to the presi

Contract Given Out for Total of 8,72f
Cars for Freight Service.
One of the first steps taken by the
Southern railway for the year 1906
was the placing of an order for 8,72f
cars for the freight service. This o
deor has been necessitated by the tre
nmendous growth of freight traffic in
the large portion of the south fed by
the Southern railway. While the exact
figures could not be learned, it is

10fDAN RILES SPINNERS,
Manufacturers Take Exception to the
Remaks of President Jordan of
Southern Cotton Association.
In an interview at Boston, Mass.,
rhursday night on the proposed pro
liminary conference between cotton
growers and manufacturers in New
York, January 24, J. R. MacColl, pres
Ident of the New England Manufac
turers' Association, took exception to
remarks said to have been made by
President Jordan of the Southern Cot
ton Association at Atlanta Wednes
day. President MacColl said:
"Tho remarks attributed to Prosi
dont Jordan of the Southern Cotton
Association, in a speech at Atlanta,
are misstatements of fact, and I trust
he has been incorrectly reported by
the newspapers. He is stated to have
said: 'Now these spinners have to
come to us for a conference with the
view of arriving at a satisfactory price
"At the Atlantic City meeting of
our association, held in September,
Richard Cheatham, secretary of the
Southern Cotton Association, said:
"'The policy of the Southern Cot
ton Association has been since its in
ception to cultivate friondship and
better trade relations and understand
tng with the manufacturers of our
great staple crop.
"'To that end, the association has
appointed a committee from among its
most intelligent and competent mem
bers, to confer with you at such a
time as may be convegient to a sim
ilar representative committee from
your body to take under consideration
such matters as vitally affect the in
terests of both. I feel that much last
ing good will result from such a coil
"As a result of this and other sug
gestions a preliminary conference of
delegates from manufacturing and
cotton growing associations have been
arranged for January 24 in New
"The purpose is, if deemed advisa
ble, to formulate plans for a joint
conference of cotton manufacturers
and growers to be held in April, at
which there will be present a repre
sentative from the international fed
eration of Europe. Fixing the prier
of cotton is, in my opinion, not like
ly to receive much attention. This will
continue to be determinod as it al
ways has been by the old economic
law of supply and demand, but apart
from this, there are many matters that
can well be discussed nt such a gath
ering, and with benoficial results tc
all the interests represented."
