New Orleans, Sept. 7.—Constant decline on our side, heavy movement, lafge offerings at concessions, the fa vorable weekly crop report, and large gir,aing forecasts to September 1st, probably induced liquidation in Livei pool, where futures tooay were about I 10 points lower than due, with spot prices quoted 15 down; sales 8,000 bales. This decline reduces an al ready impracticable shipping parity to impossibility and (jhuts door to business on Liverpool prices, The difference between Liverpool and our mar.tet is now only 336 points while freight and six per cent alone are 360. While final spot quotations from the interior yesterday showed further concessions and trading rather exclu sively against futures, the sales in Texas were not so heavy as earlier in the week, which may mean that some resistance is developing. First trades were at declines of from 4 to 20 points, which took (V/ibcr to 15 cents and some buying appeared at this level, but it found no sustained bflclçitig. Tfie bullish opinion is not changed jn the least by the decline and traders are merely sidestepping the rush of marketing of the early portion of the crop. After a decline of 130 points and with prices under 15 cents, a turn in the market should be due, and bulls who have realized at higher figures are replacing on depressions. I F, CLARK & CO.

President Wilson will re ceive all' political visitors at Shadow lawn and his campaign will be of^he front porch variety, PRESIDENT CATT ADDRESSES SUFS Head of National Woman's Suffrage Association Speaks. (By Associated Press.) Atlantic City, Sept. 7.—The Nation al American Woman's Suffrage As sociation in session heft spent most of the today's session listening to addresses, chief of which was that of Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, president oi the association. Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, Presi dent of the National American Wom an's Suffrage Association, in her ad dre^j before the annual convention of the Association here today, pictured •the suffrage movement as having reached a crisis, which means that "The' Woman's Hour Has Struck!" Earnestly, she exhorted the women not to lose heart, but to recognize the present opportunity which "if seized with vigor, enthusiasm and will, means the final victory of our great " cause in the very near future." She said, in part: "The great war will bring untold ehanges in its wake; it presages a total change ip the status of women In Europe, from the Polar Circle to the Aegan Sea, women have risen and taken the places made vacant by men and in so doing they have grown ir. self-respect and in the esteem of their r£ , S p ec tive nations. Indeed, Europe is I rea ]j z j n g as it never did before, that women are holding together the civ ilization for which men are fighting A great searchlight has been thrown upon the business of natipn-huilding and it has been demonstrated in every European land that it is a partner ship with equal but different respon sibilities resting upon the two part ners. "The v/ar will soon end and the ar, mies will return to their native lands. To many a family, tho men will never come back. The husband who re turns to- many a wife will eat nc bread the rest of his life save of her earning. "What then, will happen after the war? Will the widows left'wilh lam ilies to support cheerfully leave their well-paid posts for those commanding lower wages? Not without protest! The economic axiom, denied and evad ed for centuries will beiemblazoned on every factory, counting house and shop; 'Equal pay for equal work;' and common justice will slowly but surely enforce that law. The European wom an has risen. She may not realize it yet,, but the woman 'door-mat' ir every land has unconsciously become a 'door-jam.' She will have become accustomed to her new dignity by the time the men come home. She will wonder how she ever could have been content lying across the threshold now that she discovers the upright jamb gives so much broader and more normal a vision of things. "In Great Britain, which was the storm center of tho suffrage move ment for some years before the war hundreds of bitter, active opponents have confessed their conversion to woman suffrage on account of the war services of women. Already, three great provinces of Canada— Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchiwan have given universal suffrage to theii women in sheer generous appreciation of their war work. Even Mr. As quith, world rdnowned for his immov able opposition to the Parliamentary suffrage for British women, has giver, evidence of a change of view, months ago, he announced his amaze ment at tho utterly unexpected skill, strength and resource developed by the women and his gratitude for their loyalty and devotion. A public state ment issued by Mr. Asquith in Aug ust, was couched in such terms as to be interpreted by many as a pledge to include women in the next election bill. Some "The significance of the changed status of European women has not been lost upon the men and women of our land; our own people are not so unlearned in history, nor so lacking in National pride that they will allow the Republic to lag behind the Empire presided over by the descendant of George the Third. If they possess the patriotism and the sense of na tionality which should be the inheri tance of an American, they will not wait until the war is ended, but will boldly lead in the inevitable march ol democracy, our own American spec ialty. 1 J ^ V wopmii':* liberty lour heads, Ithe roof of ■ hat is our lie in admir-. ■■nice ?
