Tho lncrcaso In tho prlfco of cotton

upon tho cotton Industry. Confidence
caused by. tho better cotton prices is
being communicated to other indus-
tries and chapncls of commerce in-
dicated by reports of revived whole
sale trade activity according to the
Tho slight improvement in goneral
conditions described in the statement
a month ago assumed somewhat more
distinct lines In August. All branches
of wholesale trade reported larger
sales and collections. Increased bank
clearings building permits and charg.
es to depositors' accounts woro among
tho month's favorable developments.
Demand for oil and lumber displayed
moro strength than had been exhibited
for several months. The livestock

VOTERS TD VISIT
"WASHINGTON D. C Sept. 28
There Is no more important duty for
tho citizen "than this of voting on the
one day In tho year when his vote
means something" President Harding
wroto today in reply to a letter from
Charles S. Stol'er of tho Alexander
Virginia Republican Club In which
tho president was asked for an xpres-
lon on "tho duties of tha citizen."
Citing aa an example of the laxity
of voters in casting their ballots in the.
last election for aovernor of Virginia
When only 89000 votes were cast while
Jn 1920 the total with women voting
rose to but 231.000 out of a "total
possible qualified vote ot about 900
000" the president wrote:
"Quite regardloBS of effort on the for-
tunes Of particular political parties I
am impresser there Is need particularly
for an appeal to votors to porrorm
their duty at tho ballot box on election
day If the. result of a full voto in
Virginia or any other state should
provo disastrous to the party of
which you or I chance to be a member
i); wo would at least know1 that wo had
heard the voice ot tho people and
would bo more ready to acqulece in
their decision. There is no moro im-
portant duty for the citizen than this
. of .voting on the one day In th year
When his vote moans something.
"If you can succeed in securing -in.
Virginia this fall tho largest vote tho
stato ever cast I will personally feel
that you havo accomplished a not-
able clvla advantage quite regardless
ot the political result.
"I "think it will not be improper for
me to add that I shall have like
yourself no foar of the political row
. iult if an expression can bo secured."
