WHEN BETTER AUT4
they were unable to determine wheth
er it was because of Borland or bo
cause of the severance of Mrs. Lawd
friendly relations with Miss Hanan.
Borland told police that he beleived
Mrs. Laws was driven to the act as
a result of having lost the'friendship
and financial assistance of Miss Han
an. He also expressed the belief that
this was followed by excessive drink
ing which Mrs. Laws admitted irr a
letter to her sister in San Francisco
found among her possessions after
Mrs. Laws had lived with the Han
an's until about two weeks ago when
a quarrel between her and Mildred
at Shoreham, Long Island, resulted
in Mrs. Laws taking rooms at a hotel
not far from the Hanan home on
Park Avenue. On the evening pre
ceeding the shooting, Miss Dorothy
Gottehalk, a friend, had dined with
Miss Hanan and Borland at the Han
an home. Miss Hanan and Borland
later decided to accompany Miss
Gottehalk to her home in Brooklyn
and it was while eierging from her
apartnent the shooting occured.
Except to state that Mrs. Laws
had shot her and that Borland had
nothing to do with it Miss lanan
had declined to answer the inquiries
of police seeking to establish a motive
for Mrs. Laws' act.

Mr. Harrower declares that he re
gards his prediction of the present
crop at G,500,000 bales as n -conserva

concerning widespread deterioration
of the cotton crop since the last gov
ernment estimate, which placed pro
duction at 7,035,000 bales.
Asked to make a statement for the
Atlanta Constitution concerning crop
conditions, Mr. I[arrower dictated to
a stenographer a statement which will
be read with interest throughout the
country, for Mr. Harrower is regard
ed as one of America's foremost cot
ton experts. Mr. Harrower says:
"The cotton situation is bound to be
acute in the present season. The
world's supply of American cotton in
all countries is about 9,000,000 bales.
This includes linters and low grade
stuff. About 6,500,000 bales of this
total is in the United States and in
cludes some cotton that is not tender
able on contracts. Of the cotton held
by the farmers of the old crop 13.5
per cent is made up of snaps, bollics
and other grades that are not tender
able. This is the position of the
carry-over of old cotton on July 31,
"We come into the new season on
August 1 with a crop for the United
States estimated by the department
of agriculture at 7,035,000 bales bas
ed on the condition August 25. Since
that time deterioration has been rapid
throughout both the eastern and west
drn belts. The boll weevil has taken
practically a third of the crop in most
"There is little hope of further
blooms and the large ginning return
which to somef looks like a large crop
is really an indication of a decidedly
small one because the hot, dry weath
er has been forcing the crop to an
early maturity and picking is unusu
"Since the government report as of
August 25, deterioration has been
rapid and the crop prospect is actu
ally lower thanti at that time.
"In Texas, where the best authori
ties had estimated the crop at 50 per
cent of all normal production, or 1,
500,000 bales, the recent floods have
cut down production at leas' 250,000
bales more. In some parts of Miss
issippli the wveather has beeni so ex
r'cssively hot that the pickers c'annot
