New Orleans, 1., May 14.-The draft of the proposed powers for the cotton corporation Will b submitted later this week to the entire confer ence of cotton interests representa tives and adoption of the plan without material modification la expected. The authorized capital stock al though fixed at 1160,000,000 In the ten tative draft, may be reduced. The corporation will be authorised to begin business when the amount of capital stock subscribed reaches, $20,000,00ff with fifty per cent paid vl, and pay ments might be made either In cash. Liberty Bonds or notes, or treasury certificates of indebtedness. By this means approximately $10,000,000 worth of government securities would be th basis for financial operations at the start.. - , In addition to finding a market abroad for cotton and cotton products, and making: the neecssary , contracts, the corporation would be empowered to deal in notes, drafts, checks, bills of exchange, acceptances,-cable trans fers or other evidences of Indebted ness. It could take bonds of foreign governments or of foreign banks, syn dicates or other private business firms and make loans to those foreign in terests on the Security of their obli gations. By this means the corpora tion virtually would sell its cotton to foreign purchasers on credit, raising money In this country on security of the foreign bonds to finance the op erations. Another power proposed for the cor poration is to permit it to take stock in foreign commercial or industrial en terprises connected with the purchase or manufacture Of cotton. This might involve the acceptance of mortgages on foreign plants and thus give the American cooperative corporation a hand in the management of foreign firms. Another power would be "to acquire the good will, business, rights, .prop erty and obligations of any individual partnership pr corporation carrying On a business similar or cognate to the business which this corporation Is au thorized to conduct and to pay there for In cash, bonds Or other obliga tions of this corporation." This would pave the way for the corporation to absorb other cotton exporting organi zations and is understood to constitute one of the principal subjects of dis agreement among the organizers. Cotton dealers would act through the corporation In export dealings but might if they ehose ship goods abroad in their own name, and receive loan from the corporation on the security of shipping documents. The limit of time for these loans and the interest rate is not specified in the proposed organization draft, but it is assume- the loAna mie-ht be made for as Ions An 1vtt traafa rtritnIXerS Of the CO ; operative organization propose that it might borrow within one year afte? peace is declared from the govern ment's war finance corporation which is authorised within the year to make five year loans to exporters or banka Which have financed export transac tions. -- Authority would also be given ths corporation by Its organizers to act in any part Of the United States or In Anv fAralvn nmin ro- tinth Att itS OW'l account and as asrent. trustee, broker or Consignee in dealing in cotton, cot ton yarns, cotton goods, seed ana seea oil, or other vegetable oils, providing the articles are meant solely" for export trade. .
