A shining example of the way
tariff boosters "play both ends
against the middle—and lose every-
thing—is afforded by the cotton
situation in this country. Representa-
tive Jack Garner of Texas, Demo-
cratic flooi* leader, recently issued
a statement calling attention to the
decrease in cotton consumption in
"American cotton mills," stated Mr.
Garner, "under the protection of un
embargo tariff, have been enat'ed
to advance prices, and as a result, the
per capita consumption of cotton ha*
But the decrease in domestic con-
sumption is only part of the sad
story. Cotton exports during May
showed a decline of $14,000,000, or
nearly 25 per cent of the entire pro-
duction in exports. Under normal
conditions, approximately half of the
cotton crop is exported. Likewise,
cotton cloth manufactures are usually
sold abroad in such large quantities
that the exports constitute the
balance of prosperity for the trade.
During 1929. the value of cotton
cloth sold to Cuba alone amounted
to more than nine million dollars.
She has been by far the best steady
customer for our cotton manu-

CAREER ON SEA
Unusual Type of
HOUSTON, Texas, July 10.—Far-
«er, sailor and country store-keeper
before oil made him a multi-million-
aire, Rose Shaw Sterling has known
the hardships as well as the easy
times of life.
He lacks all the usual equipment
of the typical successful office seeker
and that very lack is one of the
major things his supporters count
upon for victory.
Texas, they believe, is tired of the
oratorical and visionary type of
candidate. The voters, they believe,
will rally to a solid business man
who can't make a speech and
admits he doesn't know politics.
Starling was born on a farm near
Aaahuac, Chambers county, on Feb-
raary 11, 1875. His father, a return-
ad Confederate officer, had organized
the first company that left Liberty
county to fight for the South in the
war between the states. They had
full need for the Frugality of Capt.
Sterling's namesake — Benjamin
Franklin—in those trying days of
reconstruction. Ross was one of
twelve children. He had seven bro-
thers and four sisters.
While still a youth he left the farm
and began operating a schooner
across the bay between Anahuac and
Galveston, freighting produce and
merchandise between the two places.
At 20 he had opened a store near the
family home and three years later
married Miss Maud Abbie Gage,
daughter of Frederick Higbee Gage,
of Hamilton, Illinois.
Expanding his merchandise busi-
neja, he opened grain and produce
atores ir. the oil field regions or Hum-
ble and Sour Lake. He also became
connected with banking enterprises.
In this oil region i was natural that
he should turn to that industrv. He

Turning his executive ability to the
department which had become sadly
demoralized with a swift series of
changes in commission membership
and engineering direction, he became
deeply interested in state highway
problems. He first had installed a
complete accounting system. He ad-
vocated a state-wide road bond issue
to be paid off by receipts from gaso-
line tax on the motorists who use the
roads. A $300,000,000 issue was sug-
gested, a large part of which would
go to takino up outstanding county
and district road bond issues, ex-
pended for roads that have been made
a part of the state highway system.
