At the meeting of the membera of the New York Cot-. ton Exchange with -open contract, eummoned to consider tee report of the conference committee, the plan ,wa unanimously adopted. The plan is tha result of numerous eonferencea between the committees of the New York Cot- toft Exchange and the Liverpool Cotton Association to de vise tome Scheme for the reduction of the open straddle intereet between the two mariteta and for the reduction of the outstanding eommitmenta both bought and sold.'" v Summed up the altuatlon ia thia: Best Informed m-torests sute that of the total stock of cotton in Liverpool, ebout 850,000 bales are hedged against in the New York market; that la the Liverpool merchant has sold short to the straddler against bis actual ottoa and the atraddler haa sold short In- New York against bis mirchaae from ths merchant , Until the actual cotton baa been sold tb merchant cannot cover and for that reason the straddler cannot sell his contract in Liverpool and therefore will not cover in New York. In order to relieve this situation It has been agreed that no Import ahall be made into Liver- uot until the cotton, Indirectly hedged la New York,, has been disposed of. : :;;, ,fa- X-fa Xr'X-fa''- According to. the plan agreed upon, which, Itowever, does not yet Include New Orleans, January-February will to fixed at 5.70d. and December at 9.90c. la New York, or ft difference of ISO point, the. sams difference that existed between the markete at the local does on July tLfafa"; - It Is Stated In well informed circles that as soon as thia straddle has been settled the Exchange will reopen and some aaaert that It may even open earlier, a pressure may poasfbly be brought to bear by Washington to reopen at soon as posiibls under the provlaion of the Cotton Futures Act It 1 argued that the financing of the new crop has been largely arranged for, but that no loans can be mfde on cotton until the Exchange 1a opened, for the reaion that no one know what tha value of cotton ia at present " :;fa-pyfa- -s.r fafaX fa.-..: X . The renort aa adontod k aa fnHoem; "Yan iwmnnlt. tee has agreed, with tha Liverpool eommittee, that a dif ference of 160 point between Janoary-February-Iiverpool and December-New York Is Just and equitable ftnd ahould be accepted by all intereet as the basia of liquidation. "On of tha difficulties la the reversal of the straddle is the fact that the Liverpool merchant who has actual cotton not directly abort in the New York market, but is short to the straddler who haa bought In the Liverpool market and aold in the New York market It thus fol lows that until the Liverpool merchant by hi sale to spinners Is enabled to buy hie abort contract back from the straddler who is long of it to Liverpool, the straddler cannot furnlih a buying power tn the New York, market. "After the exchange of numerous cable between Liverpool representativee bare and the Liverpool Cotton Exchange, your committee recommend the following plan, having In view the reduction in price to 8.70 for Jarraary- February in Liverpool on Monday. That New York firms ahall put up in trust, fa desig nated New York banks, sufficient eash to margin such eotton a they are long in Liverpool, to 6.70 for January' February, and further, .shall put -up fa trust, In desig nated Now York banks; each cask as will margin thair Deeambar contracts in New York, down to fJOV Such margin will be released unconditionally, only to, the extent justified by such sake as New York broker may make, of their long Interest in Liverpool, through the permission to participate la the ballot, which has been given by the Liverpool Exchange, and further, to such extent as Is justified by such purchase aa they may make against the contracts which they have aold in this market for Liverpool account 0 In other words, this margin which ia put np in trust ia only releaeed unconditionally, on eloeed contracts. The Liverpool firm to whom neb, money thus become available have agreed to make their own arrangements for transferring same- to Liverpool.

The surety business, by WhJcli" validity te tho,: aarehouN certificate Is guaranteed, haa also been stimuv fa fated to extend its efforts over the entire territory .These fa. two developments on a scale hitherto unknown are only part w the tasulto of ths blocked export situation. ' Voluntary associstions throughout the Bouth, such . as farmera anions and the. Southern Cotton Association have begun organising counties and districts to meet this war crisis in cotton. : The state preeldents of the cotton association have called meetings for September .22,' following the county meltings in each of the etatea on September 19, after which the central meeting will be bold at New, Orlean on September 29. Farmers' institutes, bank era, merchants, Jobbers, rallroade, faaurance companies and all business interest involved fa the welfare of cotton are urged to insure the protection of cotton while in the hands of the producer. . V ; v . The New Orleans meeting of Sept. 29 announces ita purpose to be that of "agreeing upon a fixed minimum Brief for thia eotton crop, which has cost the South about 12c a pound to grow." The Southern Cotton Association which met at New Orleans on August 28, voted down the bond plan, but on motion of Commissioner Rope, of Texas, adopted the resolution that cotton should be held for 12 e. It was argued that Axing of price would hold up the crop, and furnish a guide for bankers and merchant. 8ol"W)i- ler, president ?-the Whitney Central Bank of New Orleans, advised against fixing any price, expressing the opinion that the selling price of goods, which was now uncertain, . ahould determine largely the price of raw cotton..--' '. ; ,-. V- '.. ' The warehouse eommittee advised that eotton withheld from market should be' distributed in small quantities rather .than congested at ports and other centers, as a neaae of avoiding any abnormal fire losses.. Otherwise, any large fire at a concentrating center would work aertout curtailment of Insurance facilities. Farmer were advised to eetabHsh bonded warehouses in various localities under aueh condition that insurance companies could eo-eperate fa carrying the eurplua crop. Fertiliser and Implement Interests were asked to support the withholding of distressed cotton antil fairer valuee could be obtained, - . That the plan of the Virginia-Carolina Chemical Co. for the warehouaing of eotton, in order to aid southern farmers, ia rapidly rounding into shape, ia attested by S. T. Morgan, president of the corporation. The reporta of tha propoeed arrangements, however, have not been quite correct .... "Strictly epenking, said Mr. Morgan, "we are not going to build any warehouse at all. To erect regulation brick buildlnga fa time to take care of the present crop would be an utter Impossibility. Furthermore they would east several millions of dollars. Our plan ia a aim-pie one. We propose to fence off certain areas on our properties fa the eotton belt and to stack the cotton fa the open, raising it from f to 10 inches from the ground to protect it from dampness. It then will be covered with tarpaulin. "We will stack from 100 to 500 bales in one storage unit and surround it with a ten-foot barbed wire fence. It will be insured and protected against fire. We have arranged for insurance at a rate only slightly higher than for'cotton stored in the ordinary way. We believe the plan to be feasible and hope eventually to see it extend all over the South, although at first the ay stem will be put into effect only In towns where we have plants or branches.'' Mr. Morgan went on to say that the farmers, on de livering their eotton, wpald receive warehouse receipts which could be need fa the usual way as security for loans. The borrowing value, of course, will be a matter for ad- jrment between, the borrower and the fender. . THE NEW POPE Cerdmal DtU CkUta Choton, and Will Tako tht Nam of Benedict XV. Hi$ Election a Surprise . Borne Cardinal Delia Chieaa has been elected Pope. Cardinal Delia Chiesa waa elevated to the Card instate on May 28, last at the last consistory held at the Vatican. He te the Archbishop of Bologna, Italy. The Vatican announces that the new Pope will take the name of Benedict XV. The election of Cardinal Delia Chiesa came as a sur prise, as his naine had hot been mentioned among the list of prominent candidates. His candidature waa put forwarc as a compromise when the contest between the supporters of Cardinal Maffi and Cardinal Ferrets threatened to grow into a deadlock. ' Cardinal Giaeomo Delia Chiesa. before being elevated to be a Prince of the Soman Catholic Church, was a Mon-signor. He waa made Arehl ishop of Bologna in December, 1907, succeeding the late Cardinal Domenlco Svampa. He was born in Genoa and was formerly assistant to Papal Secretary of State Merry Del VaL . Previously, the appointment of Papal Nuncio to the Madrid court had been offered to him, but he declined,., The Vatican had gone eo far as to make out the papere naming him the papal nuncio, but he refused to accept them. Pope Benedict XV. is 60 years of age. Be was ordained in 1878 and nine years later waa made aecretary to Cardinal Eampolla, one of the most powerful figures in the recent, history of the Roman Catholic Church. AMERICANS IX FRANCE u. S.
