Tex., July 12.—tip)—Close cooperation between republicans and democrats who are opposed to the election of Governor A1 Smith of New >ork to defeat the national democrat ic ticket in Texas has been promised by leaders of both groups. Former Governor O. B. Colquitt, ,°f the anti-Smith democrats will hold a meeting here July 1*. announced yesterday that the re » publicans probably would be asked / to substitute a ticket of anti-Smith presidential electors for the repub lican electoral ticket. Mr. Colquitt ► aid that presidential electors would be chosen probably at the July 17 meeting end would be instructed to 'ote, if elected, for Herbert Hoover, republican, for president. R. B. Creager. republican national committeeman, said that while a full ► lute of republican candidates for state offices would be put in the field the main energies of the state party would be toward electing Mr Hoover end that the fullest coopera tion would be given to the anti-Smith democrat • Considerable pressure has been brought to bear on Mr. ! icager and other republican state leaders to sires.; the state elections as little as possible in order that the anti-Smith democrats would nut be antagonized. Candidate Bar Spreads To offset activities of the anti Smith democrats end the republicans in Texas it movement to bar the ^p-umes of candidates for ttste of fices who have said they will not support Governor Smith from ballots ^ *° be used in the democratic primary V%uly hiu been started and already found its way into the state courts. Applicat on for a mandamus to compel the democratic committee of < ameron county to piuce his name on the ballot from which it has been barred was filed by Thomas B. Love, candidate for lieutenant-governor, J. and late yesterday was denied by | Ilistriet Judge A. M. Kent. Coun.-cl | for Mr. Love, who has declared he w-ould not vote for Governor Smith but has not indicated for whom he would vote, immediately gave notice that the case world be appealed, and j‘ said that action on the appeal should be had to orrow or Sa: irday. Love Case Is Tesl The Love case is regarded as a test V of the state election laws with re jj card to ruthority of county commit i<“s to ' r names of insurgent de:n > m-ratic candidates from the primary ballots. Should the courts hold that this is w th n the authority of the county committees it is expected that action against Mr. Love and other candidates who have rebelled after Smith’s nomination will be taken in other counties.

HAVANA. i/P)—Action of the Unit-! I cd States horticultural board in' granting Cuba the privilege of ship ping lima beans to Canada via New York during normal quarantine months has stirred Cuban vegetable growers to active measures for pro tection of their n.w commercial opportjnil. . Official* «>f the l uban depart-! 1 mfnt of agriculture are understood ' to contemplate conferences with President Machado relative to adop tion of measures making it rsanda ; torv that th- li: ta heap borer be j cr.'dLaled. or at le^ct control of i infestation rttsrapted. j The t'ltcnial .;our«e of con3ider j able farm wealth in Cebu, limn I beans have been dented the full ad*! ! vantages of e* port trace because! of the borer, a serious pe t that ( citltcr !-■ ••.burnt fro1’ th" Unite:!; j State, or r->t wide!.” d d'Tbuled. To prevent introduction of the insect.1 J the United State has e- tabli. bed a ! quarantine which permits green j lima beans to be imported from t uba only during the period from No.ember to flcren Jl. imports ma> come through no uth. r port than New York, and then only j flrr rigid inspection there and : t I’cints w ner* I the shipments originate. It is be i ■ lieved that the winter months are ! co'd enough erd New York far 'rough rtor 'h to minim : «* th' live lihood of borer survival, . hould any escape detection J here is no quarantine on dried beans. In ; r ntmg in transit shipments of green lima cans to Canada through New York after March 31. the Unit ed hlutes horticultural board has warned exporters that only borer fre? bear.s must be offered. All i consignments will be inspected at Ne.. York and denied entrance if < found to be infested. The new export opportunity is ex-! pected to result in a larger limn bean acreage for Cuba, which al ready is sufficiently large that even und?r restrictions 2,126.170 pounds of beans were exported to the Unit ed Slates during the 11*27-28 season. " ith exception of the Canadian market now opened, no other mar ket than the American comes into con?ideration in the export trade in Cuban vegetables. Prices on the local export n^irket are controlled j entirely by the market situation in j New York. By far the larger part’ of the exports go to New York, al-j though a few- shipments are sent by ear ferry to Key West and a few by direct ship to New Orleans. The winter market for Cuban vege tables in the United States has reached its present point of eco nomic value in the last ten vears. It has had a decidedly stimulating influence on Cuban agriculture and brought into importance such crops as tomatoes. peppers, potatoes, egg plant. lima beans, squash, okra. and cucumbers. The first five articles constitute about 85 per cent of the total exports, which during the 1926-27 season amounted to 43,000. 000 pounds. — ■■ .
