NEW COTTON PEST
Atlanta, Ga., July 28.—N0 sooner
has the southern farmer succeeded
in gettipg the upper , hand in the
fight against the bell weevil than an
other kind of weevil is discovered,
according to information received
here by the Georgia department of
agriculture, and the prospect arises
of another desperate battle to keep
the south’s great staple from being
The new cotton pest, state agricul
ture department officials stated, has
been found in Arizona, first in the
wild cotton in the higher altitudes,
later invading cotton fields in the
valleys and spreading its area of de
struction until the state of Arizona
has found it necessary to create non
cotton sections, destroying growing
cotton crops where the weevil was
found and paying the farmers for
the crop's thus destroyed. This work,
it \\‘as stated, has caused discontent
and some planters have gone into'the
courts in an effort to make the state
pay more than it offaresJ.for the cot

hardier type than the boll weevil of

more difficult to kill. West Texas

region to help fight off the invasion.
Perhaps the western cotton enemy
will be checked before it can destroy
southern, cotton crops, but the out
look thus far is not encouraging, ac
cording to J. J. Brown, Georgia com
missioner of agriculture.
“Probably the only safe plan for
he cotton grower will be to do more

Factories 'Sought for Georgia.
To secure for Georgia its maximum
development in the dawning indus
trial awakening of the south is the
aim of the Georgia Industrial Bu
reau, according to announcement
made by F. H. McDonald, managing
editor, who is now pushing the work
of communication with large Indus
trial interest*, outside the state.
“Securing for Georgia the invest
ment from outside the state of new
capita] in the form of manufacturing
plants involves a definite course of
procedure,” said Mr. McDonald. “It
is recognized that a haphazard share
of such investment would be less
than is justified by the advantages
and resources available in Georgia-
Great new factors are influencing a
distant trend into the southeast of
many lines of industry, notably cot
ton manufacture. Established enter
prises in more fully developed and
older industrial regions are alert to
the trend and are locating south
eastern branches or are organizing
new concerns in the state.
“The Georgia Industrial Bureau is
observing large organizations of this
character, particularly in textile
lines. Friendly and confident com
those that are large enough to be in
terested. They are being advised of
the bureau’s ability and desire to aid
in analysis of their requirements as
to raw material, labor, transporta
tion, power, water ar,d other things,
as well as in the application to those
needs of the possibilities offered by
the available sites in Georgia, in or
der that they can choose intelligently
a location insuring minimum operat
ing and distributing costs.”
Mr. McDonald pointed to the fact
that three main features guide the
work of the bureau. These are: first,
to secure in Geygia the investment
of capital from outside the st*se;
second, to develope the manufacture
or processing of Georgia products
now overlooked or partially pro
cessed; third, to develop for greater
profit the industries already estab
lished within the state. The bureau,
it was stated, is a non-profit state

Atlanta. Ga.—A house bill provid

orte-half cent per gallon on gasoline
was favorably reported by the house
committee on public'highways at a
meeting held Tuesday afternoon.

substitute for house bill No. 902,
explained that, although the slate is

the mposeibility of making change

der the proposed bill the state would
take the full four cent tax, which
is claimed, ; would not raise 'the

of the robbery and gave this as the
only excuse for his downfall.

: COTTON NOW USED
IN MAKING PAPER
Atlanta, Ga., July 28 —A new
source of demand has been created
for southern cotton in the south—
that of paper-mak.ng—according to
The manufacture of paper from
cotton and cotton linters has been
tested out and has proved practic
able, the advices received here state.
A paper manufacturing concern in
Chattanooga, Tenn., is now making
a fine grade of bond and book papers
from cotton and has demonstrated
that cotton answers the purpose as
well as rags and obviates the neces
sity for using wood pulp in the kind
of paper made.
Some years ago, it was stated to
day, experiments were made in mak
ing paper from cotton stalks and it
was predicted that the fibre of the
stalks would .answer for the purpose
and giv.e, commercial value to that
part of the cotton plant which, is
Counted waste. The stalk experi
ments, Atlanta publishers state, do
not appear to have proved success
ful, but the use of cotton and linters
fn the making of the better grade of
pdper is a success and it creates a
new field for the south's great staple
that may add greatly to its selling
“From the viewpoint of the cotton
grower, each new use found for cot
ton is further insurance of the per
manency of the industry, of the
greater stability of the market and of
the certainty of adequate demand to
absorb all production,” said J. J.
Brown, Georgia’s commissioner of
agriculture, commenting on the re
ports received by the Atlanta pub
The rapidity with which the supply
of wood pulp is being used up, the
growing scarcity of the timber from
which the pulp is obtancd, and the
constantly increasing use of and de
mand for paper has caused the man
ufacturers of paper much concern
and a world-wide search has been un
der way for additional sources of
Atlanta publishers assert that the
successful use of cotton in paper
making will be a wonderful thing for
the south and for the southern far
mer. As they point out, it, Will add
greatly to the industrial growth of
the south by causing paper mills to
be erected and operated near the
source of cotton supply and will give
an added value to cotton and a double
assurance that the great southern
staple always will have a market and
always will be in demand at a good

The Allen car was halted and
searched for liquor in a most abrupt
manner Sunday just as the party Was
passing through the outskirts of
Douglasvlle en route to Atlanta, ac
cording to Allen, who states' also
that his machine was damaged when
Baggett and a civilian backed'into*
it after it was stopped. *
Both Sheriff Baggett and Allen
pgree that no liquor was found 1 in
the car. <■, « • ■
Allen says that he was stopped,
his car rammed and occupants were
ordered out of his car. He refused
to obey because he had no way of
knowing whether Baggett and hrs
companions were highwaymen, he
says. He was then told at the point
of a pistol in the hands of the ci
vilian to get out.
According to the report, Mrs. Al
len had become nervous at the treat
ment accorded her husband and her
self, and remonstrated. Baggett says
he slapped her face when she abused
him, and that he would “do it again
under the circumstances/'
When Sheriff Baggett was told of
the mpending action, he said that hi»
first statement would hold and that
he had no further comment to make.
He said he would fight the action,
contending that he was acting in the
scope of hs duty and that he dia not
transgress his authority. He said
that he hit Mrs. Allen to defend
himself before members of his fam
