GAX.VE8TW. Texas. August 31. In a
1 fits lit to til people of Galveston Fri-
day J. p. SfcDonouKh of the McDonough
Iron WKte of this city submitted a deO-
Bit IoposUIOn looking to the erection
of drydoca. at thla port. The proposal
as emtknea by Mr. McDonough does not
Involve the receipt of a bonus but is a
proposal tor the loan of sufficient funds
i 'widen wiH bo secured and draw interest
! (Ola period of M years. The statement
dedarea that a dry dock is far more
essential to the prosperity of the port than
th shipbuilding program as outlined by
' the commercial association in the attempt
to raise the necessary funds to provide
th sOBOsea and furthermore that the
shlpkuUdtng program will only be a tem-
porary proposition while the second pro-
posal will be a permanent investment.
" ' Mr. ItcDonough points out the fact that
'tis dry ock Plan wil1 enable a man to
taave a. big payroll all through the year.
Br bo war. while the shipbuilding
will subside after the war is over.
MrV.MeDonoagh has been Interested for
" laws than two years in the proposition
ecfc a dry dock and for some time has
beta trying to arrive at some plan by
Which the public might be Interested In
: jHe gives a number of reasons against
tps) naauss shipbuilding plan and In
favor of tha dry dock matter. They are
. tl tha dry dock affords permanent labor
and saore varied classes than tha ship-
' Huilding Industry
itt) Tha dry dock pays better wages
. tkaa tha ahlpbullding plknt on the whole
agnd affords steadier work to the skilled
class of labor which make the high
' wans but who are unfortunately without
..weather conditions have no effect on
tee dry dock workers and there are very
lew tost days.
' ) (J) The dry. dock will give employment
ta more men permanently than the ship-
building plant will. A dry dock the sise
. Galveston should have would require a
v payroll of about 3000 men and those wsuld
v for the most part draw skilled laborers

Mr. McDonough states that it will take
" approximately $500000 to finish the work
he baa started in the construction of a
dry dock and that the proposition be
wishes to submit Is as follows: That the
money be raised and loaned- to him for a
. period of 20 years with .adequate security.
As a starter he offers to mortgage the
improved property he has on the dike
aad the dry dock as well as soon as
the work starts on it He states that he
Witt pay interest semi-annually and will
: pay the sum of 4 per cent the first three
years S per cent the second three yeare
aad par cent thereafter and pay the
t first payment on the principal in five
. years. In case it was not possible to
raise the entire $500000 he states that 11
would probably be feasible to raise half

a meeting of all- presidents of fanners'

at Houston September t. The meeting
will discuss the best method of market-
ing the present cotton crop without the

has refused to give the samo protection

ton producer and a godsend to the cotgpn

Pope stated Friday. "Now that the
president has placed a guarantee of 33.20
per bushel on Wheat I am sure the food
board' would 'have recommended not less
than SS cents per pound on cotton as a
companion price to S3.10 wheat and had
this been done not a pound cf cotton
would have sold for less than SO uents.
"The Farm era' Union advocated a cot-
ton minimum and while some of our con-
ventions have recently asked for a pro-
tection of 30 cents per pound a much less
figure would serve to aid the cotton farm-
era for with a bottom under the price
we can easily formulate holding plana
but without a foundation we are helpless.
"I do not know what the outcome of
our conference will be. but there is one
thing certain there la no use depending
en the cotton gambler to protect the cot-
ton producer. Coaurresa Is still In session
snd we may call upon the president for
relief through congressional action."

Mr. Parker and he discussed varied
