Laurens Hoy (lets High ('oniliments
From House and Senate.
'D~uring the recent investigations by
the Senate and I louse of the different
bureaus of the Washington govern
ment, the Bureau of Supplies and Ac
counts received the very highest com
pliments that could possibly be paid
by the inspecting comiittees.' This
bureau is, its every one knows, prelid
ed over by itear Admiral F'amuel Mc
(lowan, the most distinguished living
son of Laurens. Says Senator Tillman,
Chairman of the Senate Committee on
Naval Affairs, "I invite any Senator to
visit his bureau"-the bureau of Sup
plies and Accounts-"at any time and
if he can show wherein it is not the
most. etlicient bureau in the govern
ment service today, excepting none, I
will apologize for my remarks."
lion. F. A. Brittain, member of the
Naval Comtnittee from the louse said
"I am satisfied that your bureau is
running at about 100 per cent etlicien

1. Attention is particularly invited
to the following extract from a speech
made in the tUnited States Senate Fri
day, .lanuary 28, 191;, by Senator D.
It. Tillman, the Chairman of the Com

"I invite any Senator to visit his

show wherein it is not the most. efli

2. Without regard to whether or
not this invitation for critical inspec

even more than ever before-to do our
best to deserve the Senator's very
handsome estimate of us.
3. To that end, we will not only
continue to spell bureau with a small

With the boll weevil making an un
usual eastward advance In Alabama
and Georgia a very considerable
northward movement frou Oklahoma
eastward to north AlabaIna, iany cot
ton grower.- are asking as to the prob
able effect of the weevil in the north
erni half of thei C'otton Ielt.
Of colse, in ttemptin g to answer
this quItestion, the only safe guide
liust be (he experiences of similar see
tions to the west ward that htave at
read had the weevil for a number of
years. While it cannot be unqualiIed
asserted that two counties possessing
identical climatic, soil and labor con
ditions will be affected by the weevil
in like degree, it certainly can be as
serted that such will probably be the
case. Granting that this is a reason
able sulpposition, let us see what has
been the experience of the western
part of the northern half of the Cot
ton helt under weevil conditions.
A very careful investigation of the
ginning reports issued by the united
States Census B3ureau shows that no
where north of parallel :3 1-2 north
latitude ta line running each and west
approximately through Atlanta, Ga.,
liirminghim, Ala., and Paris, Texas)
has any county suffered because of
th6 weevile a greater (lc(lease in cot
toil production Ihan occurrel durins
adv1er se seasons before the Fweev i
(1n in . If iiis I :s be n the case in the
htunid. timbered areasi of Arkansas
and rtcI l h ..lssissippi, it (1 rtaminly
seemus reasonabl' to expert about the
samue rem:ilts from the weevil in all
newly invaded setions north of par
alle l 3 1I-2.
It must not be inerred from this
that. the w:e vil will not do damage in
the territory under consideratiou; for
in all likelihood, the weevil w1ll' even
tuially go as far north as cotton is
grown and will pa rticulary diring
wet seasons following very mild win
ters, affect, the crop very considerably.
iowever, on an average ills damage
will be far less seriocis than in thie
extreme southern part of the Cotton
Belt. In fact, it' we assume that the
weevil Is "I00 per cent eflicient" in
destructiveness along the Gu! f Coast,
I his 'eliciency in dest ructiveness"
gradially and regilarly decreases to
the northward until the extremne lim1
its of cotton production are reached ill
Kansas. Missoturi, and Kentucky,
where it. is very close to zero.
it must be understood that what
has been said here does not apply to
a strip from 75 to 100 mIles wide
along the Atlantic Seaboard, for cli
matic conditions along the South At
lantic Coastal Plain are considerably
modified by the influence of tle ocean.
W'lnter tenperatures average higher
than in inland sections in the same
latitude ad the summer rainfall is
heavier. These factors, of -course,
will prove favorable to the boll weevil
and it ravages will very probably he
mor ie severec than w ill be thIe case in
land in the same latitud'e.
