OFFERS $50,000,000. New York Syndicate Would, Aid Southern Growers. Augusta, Ga., Dec. 2. Details of the plan of a New York syndicate to len Southern cotton growers $50,000,000 to aid them in holding their cotton until better prices than those now prevail in can be obtained were made public here to-night by W. II. Stayton of New York who represents the syndicate. Th statement was issued at the conclusion of a conference between Mr. Stayton and President C. S. Barrett of the National Farmers' Union; E. J. Watson of South Carolina, president of the Southern Cot ton Congress'; J. Whitney Reid, secretary-treasurer of the South Carolina Farmers' Uuiun, and J. G. Anderson of Rock Hill, S. C. The conference was for the considera tion of the means for carrying into exe cution the plan of the New York syndi cate. In his statement Mr, Stayton says: t t-r m in a general way, my people are ready to advance $50,000,000 to support a plan the outlines of which are as fol lows: '1 The cotton owner will deliver his cotton to the cotton buyer in his locality who will buy the cotton and take title to it immediately 2 The owner will receive $25 per bale in cash on account and will also re ceive a negotiable certificate setting forth the interest which the owner has whatever price may thereafter be re ceived for the cotton. i.'ie cotton owner may at any time prior to Jan. 1, 1913, name a date when he wants to finally fix the price he is to receive and on the date that he so names settlement will be made with him on the basis of the prevailing quoted price for that date On this settlement the farmer will be allowed the price the cotton is worth on the date named and from this sum will be deducted the $25 already ad vanced to him (no interest will be charged) and also $1 as the costvof grading, storage, insurance, etc., to gether with a sum equal to one-quarter of the rise in price, which will be the syndicate's compensation for its services.

"In other words, if the price does not go up, tbe syndicate gets nothing ex cept $1 for grading, storage, insurance, etc., and if the price is advanced through this movement, then the syndicate gets The first gun in Shelby County for one-quarter of the advanc and the cot- the, national campaign for the Presi- Ion owner the other three-quarters, dency was hred Saturday noon .wtien "Of course, it is not possible for my enthusiasts met at the courthouse and principals to deal directly with every in took steps to form a Woodrow Wilson dividual farmer, nd it is therefore pro club. . . posed that in each State there shall be a There were about seventy-five pres- committee of three of the leading citi- ent..

The present temporary organization con templates only Shelby County, but it is expected to extend it so as to embrace the whole of the Tenth Congressional District as a unit. Woodrow Wilson clubs have already been formed at Nash ville and Chattanooga. None of them started with so largo an enrollment as the Memphis organization.

' - ' After a conference of the Democratic House leaders in Washington it was de cided that Chairman A, O. Stanley's Steel Trust Investigating Committee should continue its work. If Repre sentative Littleton should vote with the Republicans on the committee the House will enlarge the committee by the addi tion of two Democratic monilxTS who will be in sympathy with Mr. Stanley. State and will see that the farmers' in terests are protected. JFor example, it will be the duty of these trustees to see that the necessary banking arrange ments are made so that the unpaid part of the purchase price is fully secured. At the present price the fanner wonUl Mjceive f per bale m cash and there would be still due him $15 to $20. This money must be deposited in local banks or some arrangements satisfactory to the trustees must be made in each State so that this $15 to $20 is absolutely secured to the farmer, iu order that his certifi cate or receipt may have a real value and be something on which he can bor row money. By Monday I will be ready, I think, to suggest other plans which will be satisfactory to us and may better suit the planters." NEWS NOTES. James B.
