N Orleans, Oct. 30. Tbe cotton ronference called by Governor Col jtt. of Texaa, to devle means of storing the normal price of tho soutb Kreat crop, after an all day fossideratlon or dliTerent plant for re:;ivlnK the demoralUed tltuatlon js the cotton world, did not reach an jpr-Tritrnt and adjournel at 6:30 cctil 10 o'clock Tuesday morning. Almost every cotton growing 'at. was represented at the meet i to-day. Tbe Governors of Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Virginia and Charlea S. Barrett, fresldent of the Farmers" Union, er- among those present and took an active part In the proceedings. At to-morrow's session Governor Colquitt, of Texas, has promised to make public the first statistics ever fomiifd for the benefit of the cot- ton producer relating to' the con sumption of cotton and the estimat ed demand of tho world for the cot ton of the 1911 season. These fig- ures, it Is said, will clearly demon-, trate that, even admitting that this season's crop will be the largest in thf South's history, every bale Is worth from 1 4to 15 cents per pound. While the figures were not given out in detail, Governor Colquitt said they showed that the world's demand at the present time was far greater than the supply. The figures bearing on the con sumption of cotton and the world's demand were furnished by American consuls abroad through Secretary of State Knox. They were secured on short notice and Governor Colquitt declared this fact proved that the Government can furnish such statistics for the farm er's benefit throughout the period of marketing cotton, and demand for such will be made by the conference. At this afternoon's session the conference listened to an address by President W. B. Thompson, of the New Orleans Cotton Exchange, which all present conceded contained sug gestions that, If carried to a conclu sion, would mean the financial em ancipation of the cotton planter and of the South. Mr. Thompson treated the question, solely as an economic Issue. After presenting the .causes of the present condition and showing the part that the farmer must play by a disposition to market his crop slowly, and the part the banker of the South should take by his willingness to lend finan cial support, Mr. Thompson discuss ed the State's part. He told of the step taken by Louisiana by popular vote of her citizens to establish Staet-owned, State-controlled ware houses, whose receipts will be bank able in every part of the world and offered this as the only safe plan for the Southern States to adopt to se cure a permanent relief from the con dition which How confronts them. To Make Cotton the Surplus Crop: New Orleans, La., Oct 31. The farmers of the South must withhold from the market every remaining bale of the present season's .crop of cotton and follow this with a con certed and binding agreement to re-( duce next season's cotton acreage at least 25 per cent if they hope to re store the South's great money staple to a normal price level s and retrieve the losses sustained by reason of the Present low prices. This is the plan which the confer ence of Southern Governors adopted at its convention, at to-day's session,' to secure immediate relief from the depression in the price of the sta ple. As a means of securing permanent relief from such conditions and to guaranteed the cotton farmer in the future against the necessity of glut ting the market with his supplies in the opening of the season, the con ference adopted resolutions favoring the establishment in every cotton growing State of a State-controlled warehouse, and the collection and pe riodical publication of "statistics bear ing upon the world's demand for consumption of American cotton. The propose of foreign hanking Interests to finance a holding move ment covering 2,000,000 bales of the present crop was referred to a spe--cial committee for future action. "WHO STRUCK KING COTTON?" TOiat Government Colquitt, of Texas, Says, and What Senator Butler, of North Carolina, Says. Washington Post Another effort is being made to Taise the price of cotton by the boot strap process. . This time the South is genuinely alarmed, seeing that cot ton has declined $30 a bale since the Southern Democrats in Congress got together; and fixed upon 15 cents a Pound as the minimum selling price, hoping thereby to minimize the harm their tinkerinsr -with tsfl tione. Governor -Colquitt, of Texas, ha caLrd a coaremee- of Goreroor to KiTe tblr attttnloa io tfc filiai. ios tut or a., air and hit upon pi to reittor Soaths &SSit a?e to the slats quo. j Governor Col$aitt apparently bags the general delusion among ts poll- ticians of bU taction that tb decline was brought about by tb Gorera! prosecuting the bull clique that rorea me quotation op to 20 cents a Congress to do, and tbat if ih flttle more tbaa a rear ago. He ap-.tl!e poller Prlt4 la li will tooa Pars to hare the Idea hat the cotton' become clear tbat "thousands an 4 mill tbrocghout tbe world are bold-! teni of thousands of basic toen of leg back from replenishing their d-I bs section, who voted the Democratic pleted ttocki until tbe price sinks itlll lower, and be want tbe Govern raent to supply information tbat will enable tbe Governors to circumvent tbe alleged conspirators. In other wordf, be would have tbe Govern ment virtually force the manufactur- ers, or "bear crowd." to go into tbe market and meet tbe views of the producers as pre-determlned by tbo politicians. Of course, the law of supply and demand has nothing to do with the slump, nor could tbe ac tion of the Southerners themselves In attacking the tariff bare frighten ed anybody Into "laying low." While the welghl of opinion in the Cotton Delt is fairly reflected by Gov ernor Colquitt and others of his class, there are at least two States where the common theory Is rejected. The Carolinians as to the cause of the trouble. Most o fthe Southern mills are located In those two States, and the people are In a position to see both sides o fthe quetslon. Former Senator Marion Butler, a cotton rais er, wholly disagrees with Governor Colquitt in placing the responsibility on the manufacturers and the Gov- eminent. Butler says the- "chief cause for the low price of cotton is the election of a Democratic House, and this effort to close the cotton mills by tearing down the wall of protection. The cotton mill men have not been buying raw cotton because no wise man would manufacture a large quantity of cotton and then have the tariff protection removed, so 31 fjMj , ' Direcle GerLn i Direct from the German Mines But it takes time to get it See your dealer now, before he contracts for his goods, and urge him to get good up-tordate brands, containing 6 to 10 per cent, potash, and to carry POTASH SALTS in stock.

A corretpondent of a Democratic paper In Lincoln County who signs himself "Farmer" (bat, who by the way, is not a farmer) has taken issue with tbe Lincoln Times as to the low price of. cotton. The editor of the Times has "sequelched? "Farm er" several times and continues to hand him some nuts that are hard to cratk. We clip the following from The Lincoln Times: "Farmer" wants to deny that a Democratic Congress caused low cot ton. In 1907 there was as much cot ton raised In the United States as will be this year according to the last es timate. In 1907 cotton sold at four teen cents. This year it is selling at nine cents, although there are more consumers now. Then It Is evidently not the crop that causes the low price. What is the cause? "We wait an answer. It Is a strange thing that as soon as the Democrats get in power they begin to cuss the folks for raising too much cotton. But when the Republicans are in power there's never too much. And there is a reason. When the people better balanced, your soil fertility is conserved, and your crops are. larger, and of better quality. Potash Pays.
