Needed Revenue Hellef and
Adjourn .Inly 1.
iPy Associated Pre.??.!
WASHINGTON, May 1 ? Interest at
the capitol centers this week on the
question whether plans for adjourn
ment about .luly 1 shall be abandoned
to undertake new revenue legislation.
Many other important matters are
pending, however, including disposition
by the House of the Overman bill, and
launching in tho House of the $15,000,
,000.0"" army program.
The revenue situation will bo dis
missed Tuesday at a'conference be
tween Secretary McAdoo and Senator
.Simmons and Representative Kitchin.
of North Carolina, chairmen of the
?Senate Finance and House Ways and
Means Commitees. respectively. Presi
dent. Wilson is expected to participate
in later conferences, to decide finally
whether it is necessary for Congress
to remain in session. Congressional
leaders believe action now can be
avoided, through some temporary ex
pedient, but the financial showing made
:>y Secretary McAdoo will settle the
finest ion. Debate on the Overman bill
begins to-morrow in the House by
unanimous consent, lis disposition be
fore the week-end is regarded assured.
Chairman Kent, of '.lie House Mili
tary Committee, hopes to report the
mammoth army appropriation bill by
midweek, to have it in position for dis
cussion next week.

Crop A coon iiIm nnd Improvement
in Spot Department.
|Ily in'.ed Press 1
NEW OR Leans. May 12.?Higher
prices prevailed in cotton last week,
buyirve being stimulated by unfavor
able crop accounts and the bettor sit
uation in Die spot department. Lowest
levels were made <>n the opening ses
sion. when the active months were 224
to 272 points above the close of the
preceding week. On the closing session
a wave of liquidation was encountered,
wh. h pared down the gain materially
nnd the net changes for the week were
advances of 11 to 15 points.
The gist of crop accounts was that
?he vtan-1 was poor and that much re
nlnntlng was found necessary, while
the growth of the plant was slow.
In the spot markets of the South the
highest basis on record was reported
on hedged cotton as the. result of a
demand which appeared to come chiefly
from American mills, although there
was much talk of an Increased foreign
export movement.
This week is likely to see a weather
market as crop and weather accounts
are the most Important features in
sight. Returns from the belt will
probably be morn or less conflicting
for the indications are that the market
will open on reports of rain, while the
weekly government accounts due Wed
nesdny, probably will be favorable.
Spot news will be important especi
ally if any further strengthening of
the demand is noted.
Wllllnm unci >Inry Man In Top IMnee,
With Spider* Pushing lllm Hard
For IlonorH.
One of tho surprises in tho I'Jastorn
Virginia 1 nter-Colleglnte circuit tills
| spring1 has been tho work of pitched
! Settle, of William and Mnry, with the
[ stick. Settlo added to his good mound
; record a solid streak of consistently
J Rood hitting and landed the llrst posi
tion in the Eastern Virginia batting
J column, with an average of .476.
l'itchcr Settle's time at bat liavo not
been so many as have those of Lew
.Northern, a Splddr third baseman and
home run ch.ini]) of the season. North
ern visited the pan twenty-seven times
to Settle's twenty-one and succeeded In
hitting safely eleven out of the twenty
seven visits, thereby beating out "Tom"
Miller, lied and Blue centerfleUler, for
second place.
In the early days of the collece con
tests. It appeared that either Miller or
Northern would annex the premier po
sition. About the second week of play,
however. Settle began to let loose ^
swat attack and hit with regularity.
Tho standing of?tho threo main con
ttvMnnts was practically sure before
the two games on last Saturday.
Miller In Ilnrd I.uck.
Miller has played In hard luck. Just
rounding into form, an attack of ton
silitis laid him low and prevented him
from getting into the last two chnmp
games, .lust what ho would have done
| had he faced Davis, of tho .Tacets, on
Saturday Is a matter for surmise. It
is likely that he would have materially
fattened his chances.
Three-hundred hitting endoth after
the fourth man in the Eastern Virginia
j list, showing that there has been a
| derth of consistently good swatting dur
ing the past season. Tho .200 mark
I was reached by only nineteen batsmen
i out of the forty-seven.
. The Spiders show up well in com
| pnrison, only few of them hitting bo
low .222. Thoso who fell below this
. average lino were, in the main, bats
; men who have participated in a couple
i of games at most.
"Mac" 1'itt finished his last year of
I college ball with a swat total of .241.

Interruption, despite Incessant selling
for profits, and on a steadily increasing
volume of operations, last week's Block
market registered many high records
for the year, while here and there ac
tual new high averages were attained.
The vote of confidence extended to
the British ministry, exceptional crop
prospects and tho encouraging Indus
trial outlook were among the factors
which contributed In large measure to
the substantial up-swlng.
These developments were re-enforced
by technical conditions, most of which
favored a forward movement. The suc
cess of tho liberty loan, which ex
ceeded tho most sanguine expectations
in Its broad distribution made available
an enormous amount of capital previ
ously held in reserve.
Bank clearings at principal centers
of the country attained unprecedented
proportions and general business Im
provement was In keeping with this
showing. Scarcity of labor and or
certain raw materials was almost the
only draw back.
With the steel Industry getting Into
Its war stride, the dominance of that
group was regarded as a matter of
United States Steel furnished not
fewer than MOO.OOO shares to the
week's total of about 5.200,000, making
an extreme gain of twelve points.
Weakness of Liberty bonds, the 4 1 ? 1

and the strength of new remittances
were the confusing cffccts in the
week's exchange.

Navy, spent a strenuous day in Char
lotte to-da^*. Secretary Maker, accom
panied by Major-Gonoral Gorgas, sur
good-general; Major-Oeneral Black,
chief of engineers, of the army, and
Major-Oeneral Chamberlain, inspector
general, spent a good portion of the
day making an olllclal Inspection of

Commerce at a dinner at the Southern
Manufacturers' Club lo-nlglit, at which
Secretary Baker spoke briefly, telling

the French hold for the American sol
dier. The two Cabinet members and
General Black left to-night for Wash
ington. Major-General Chamberlain
left for Atlanta, and General Gorgas
remained here over night.
Secretary Baker said before leaving
that the official inspection of Camp
Greene had no particular significance,
but that it was in line with the War
Department's policy to Inspect all the
camps and cantonments with a view to
gathering first-hand Information with
the view to determining what is the
best possible use to make of each In
the government's program to speed up
the movement of trained men in the
larger numbers transferred to France.
He said that Camp Greene would cer
tainly lie used, but to just what extent
and for what particularly phase of the
training of men for overseas service
he could not say at present, pending
the report of the board of Inspection
who accompanied him.
