PRICE OF COTTON
Governors and Representative* From
Southern States are in Confer-
ence at New Orleans
New Orleans, La., Oct. 30.—The
conference off Southern governors
called by Governor Colquitt of
Texas met today, but did not
agree upou any plan to bribg
about an insrease in the price of
cotton. A special committee wae
appointed, and it delibrated until
late in the evening and then ad.
journed until morning. Its sess-
ions were secret and it was later
learned that nothing has been
final 1 v adopted, though a tentative
prog rain is about to be accepted.
In the first pljee, to relieve the
present situation it is proposed
that that the confence issue a
strong address to the cotton raisers
of the South to hold their cotton,
and a most urgent appeal to
Sourthern bankers to assist the
farmers by giving them 6 per
cent money and down to 4 per
cent in the future, if possible.
• The rate is now nearer 16 per
cent,” remarked one of the Texas
Lamp globsa, lamp wicks and lamp
burners all sixes at Bob Curd's.

The forenoon of the first day
was taken op receiving and ar-
ranging displays, and it was 12
o’clock before all exhibitors had
arrived with their displays.

The display of fancy work is
very extensive and and contains
many handsome pieces of work.
There is a good showing of corn
and other field products.
The live stock exhibit, is large,
and contains some good ani-
mals, showing that the people of
this county are paying some atten*
tion to raising good stock.
The program as previously pub-
lished is being carried out, with
perhaps a few changes, one of
which was the address by Col.
Ball, which had been announced
for 10 o’clock Wednesday morn-
ing, but the program committee
decided that it would be better to
rxmtpone the address until after-
noon. owing to the fact that so
many were interested in taking
care of the exhibits and could not
listen to the address. However,
had Col. Ball spoken he would not
have been without hearers, for
there was a big crowd on the
grounds at the appointed hour.
