: Action Taken to Better Con
ditions Both In Spots and
Futures — Trading
In Country
Augusta, May b.—Favorable action was
taken late today by the National Cotton
«onference on all of the resolutions
adopted by the executive committee (lur
ing its two days' session here. The res
olutions were suggested as tending to im
prove present conditions, both in the
spots and futures cotton trade through
out the country. I
Among the resolutions was one recom
mending several changes in Representa
tive A. F. Lever s cotton futures hill,
now pending in Congress. The conference
instructed the chairman to forward a
copy of the resolutions to Representative
Lever. A committee of three, composed
of B. Hughes of Memphis, E. J. (Benny
of New Orleans, and Thomas Barrett,
Jr., of Augusta, was appointed to confer
personally, if necessary, with Mr. Lever
in Washington, and to assist in having
the bill passed.
Other resolutions, which had previously
been adopted by the steering committee,
and which were favorably acted upon to
[ day by the conference, were a recom
mendation tft have all cotton statistics,
receipts, etc . computed from August 1
to August 1, instead of from September 1,
also was approved.
Charges Unfair Ruling
During the afternoon session of the
conference. \\. C. Luwson of Waco,
Tex., called the attention or the organi
zation to what he termed an unfair rule
enacted last October by Pile Bremen
Cotton exchange. This rule, he stated,
allows the receiver in Bremen 100 days
to determine the extent of interior damp
after delivery. Several delegates elab
orated on the remarks of Mr. Lawson
and later the following resolution was
adopted, with Instructions that It be
presented to the Bremen exchange:
•Resolved. 'Phis convention requests
the chairman to convey to the president
of the Bremen cotton exchange its
strong disapproval of rule 37B. adopted
by the Bremen exchange at its general
meting. October 12, 1913, effective Jan
uary 1. 1914, because in our opinion,
this convention thinks the rule unfair
to shippers of American cotton, inas
much as it allows the receiver of the
cotton 100 days after delivery in which
to determine the extent of the interior
The special committee of three, on
I domestic spot transactions, asked an
extension of time until 10 o'clock to
morrow morning to make its report.
Although it had been expected that
the convention would end tonight, it
was decided to extend the session un
til 11 o'clock tomorrow morning, in or

Thrifty Home Gardeners
There is but one practical solution of
the high cost of living, and that is to raise
your own produce. The home garden in
a great measure will do it, and do It ef
fectively. It will stop the paying of
money to the "vegeiaLde man" and the
grower—a big saving. And those who are
so situated that they can raise their
own poultry and eggs, milk and butter,
and a pig or two for winter's meat, with a
change now and then from pork to poul
try, may be said to he directly on the
line, of independence, with every cause
of the high cost of living completely
blocked.—D. D. Lynch, St. Paul.
The recent extension of the parcel post
system, making provision for the direct
delivery of farm produce from the pro
ducer to iho consumer, is a long step in
the right direction toward reducing the
high cost of living, as it will tend to elim
inate the great army of middlemen, now
bet ween the producer and consumer, each
<»f whom must have his "bit” added to
final cost lK*fore it reaches the consumer.
Hut this alone will not reduce the high
cost of living, for it is not at all likely
that the farmer will continue to sell his
produce at the present price, when he finds
the middleman removed, but w-ill propor
tionately raise the price. So the delivery
direct from the producer to consumer
eventually will prove of great benefit to
the farmer.
Perhaps It is only a matter of time when
every man of family who depends upon his
daily wage will be forced to press Into
producing service a portion of his back
yard, even though he may have but a sin
gle lot. as a plot for a home garden, tc
reduce the present cost of living.
And tight now is the time to consider
; this matter if you are going to do any
thing in thn home gardening line this year,
raising vegetables to lower your individual
cost of living and to enable you to have
la larger margin of savings in the bank.
The seed companies will furnish you
with catalogs and at the hardware store
you can get the few necessary tools. Ther

and your health and your appetite will im

by means of vour home garden—plant anr

The* semi-annual conlerence of the |

In the absence of the Very Rev.
bean O'Grady, who was unavoidably
detained, the Rev. Robert .1. McQuil

moved to the chair by the clergy pres
ent. After prayer Father Coyle read
h paper on the Pentateuch, establish

these are. even when the canon of

the scientific truths of geology and its
kindred sciences cannot contradict one
another, all truth having God for Its
Father McQuillen read the next
paper, which was an essay on dogmatic
theology treating with the providence
of God. In a masterly way he “justified
the ways of God with man.” and
showed how the God of goodness has
provided ways and given graces to all
men. to all without exception, whereby
salvation may be gained. Here he
clearly explained the famous axiom
that “causes our non-Catholic friends’
much concern. “Extra ecclesiam non
datur salus—outside the church there
is no salvation.'' He pointed out that
far from being a mark of bigotry and
narrowness, the axiom showed the
charity and love of God, and the church
of God, since no man dare say who
belongs to the church, that Is. to the
soul of the church, and who does not.
In the concluding portion of his inter
esting paper Father McQuillen showed
how the existence* of miracles and the
efficacy of intercessor prayer conflicts
in nowise with the immutability of God's
overruling providence.
An essay which was said to be ex
tremely timely was that on the con
fessor, read by Father Downs of
St. Vincent s hospital. He expounded
in distinct manner the duty of the soul

of absolution and the conditional im

Father Shultz highly approved of the
The’essay by Father Turner was the
last one read. It was on canon law,
n subject with which Father Turner
has the reputation of being thoroughly
familiar. It dealt with the duties and
obligations of pastors of souls. In a
brief but lucid brochure he explained
the neescsity of pastors of souls ob
serving residence in the midst of the
parish. He showed when the Sunday |
sacrifice should be duplicated and after
a fewr words on the necessity of clear
explanation of the Sunday catecheti
cal Instruction of the young, he con

on (church finance. Father Downs, '

Gadsden, May 5.— <Special.)—Mayor J.
H. Holcombe was made the target for
an attack by Capt. J. M. Elliott last night
at the council meeting. Captain Elliott
has been leading the forces for an elec
tion on the question of issuing $100,000 in
bonds for street improvement. The mayor
vetoed the ordinance, and the council
has taken no action to pass it over the
veto. The speaker charged the mayor
with trying to defeat the will of the peo
ple. Following this, the mayor read his
veto me'ssage, and asked Mr. Elliott if
each paragraph were true or not. With
a few exceptions the latter admitted
that facts were embodied in the docu
Mr. Elliott also charged that the city
had permitted the Alabama PoWor com- 1
patay to enter the city with a high ten- j
sion wire which he considers dangerous.
Alderman Jackson denied this, saying!
that the Alabama City. Gadsden and At

Birmingham, May 6.— (7 p. m.)—The
area of low pressure that was central
over the lower Missouri valley and the
western lakes Monday night now oc
cupies the middle Atlantic states. Its
rapid passage over the eastern states
has resulted in moderate to brisk winds
in some sections, an<g general rain from
the Mississippi eastward. Boston re
ported 1.20 inches rainfall since Mon
day night, and Nashville 1.70 inches.
Pittsburg reported a maximum wind
velocity of 4 4 miles per hour from the
northwest, Cape Hatteras 52 miles
from the southwest and Jacksonville,
3<J miles from the southwest. Thunder- j
storms occurred over the Ohio valley j
and quite general heavy ^ains extended
over most of the middle Atlantic and ]
New England sections.
West of the Mississippi pressures are
relatively high and fair skies prevail
throughout most of the western Mis
sissippi valley and plains states. Tem
peratures have fallen from 6 to 16 de
gress from Oklahoma to Manitoba, and
from western Colorado to Missouri. A
cool change has also spread over the
eastern states north of the Ohio river.
In the cotton states, while cloudy skies
have prevailed, the influence of the
slight “high*’ over Florida - has been
sufficient to prevent rainfall over the
gulf sections. Temperatures have risen
a few degrees in all sections except
Oklahoma and western Texas.
