Atlanta. Aug. 11—Georgia cotton grow
ers are preparing to make an organized
fight on the men who will try to bear the
cotton market this fall. In telling of their
plans, Preside:.t Harvie Jordan of the
Cotton Glowers' Protective Association
"I have deemed It best to issue a call
asking the cotton growers and business
men generally of the state to come to
gether at their various county seats on
the first Tuesday in Sepnmber for the
purpose of completing sub-organizations
of our association in the different coun
ties. A large number of counties have al
ready organized and many more have
named dates to come together in the near
"The farmers have it absolutely in their
pow<r to control the situation at pr. sent,
and efforts should be made to aid them
in the struggle for better and higher
prices. More than (U,000.000 can be saved
to the Georgia farmers if th-y receive 10
cents per pound for their cotton, wh;ch
•will be lost if .they rush the crop on the
market and sacrifice it at 7 cents."
"The members of the Georgia State Ag
ricultural Society in convention at Dub
lin last Thursday unanimously indorsed
the effort of our association in behalf of
the cotton producers and agreed to give
their active co-operation to the move
ment in making the present undertaking
a success this season.
“The Georgia bankers had already
guaranteed their willingness and ability
eo aid the members of the association as
to advancing money on cotton in storage
which would enable the producers to mar
ker the crop slowly.
“The cotton mills of the South are with
us, and ail the lines of business trades
end professions ore willing to lend a help
ing han<i toward-securing for the farmers
a higher price for their staple.
“If the crop is marketed slowly, we may
confidently look for 10 cent cotton by the
first of October, and to that end we must
all combine our efforts and take a de
termine** stand against allowing the crop
to be sacrificed at 7 cents per pound,
which the speculators are industriously
trying to force upon our people.”
REFUSED TO CALL* A DOCTOR.
Mother of a Christian Scientist Let
Her Daughter Die.
Atlanta. Aug. 11.—Mrs. Marian Miller
fell from a window in the Factory Hotel
in the Fulton Mill District last night and
broke her hack. Although rational, she
would not consent to the calling of a phy
sician. When firsn hurt she asked for a
doctor, but her mother, Mrs. Dick, a
Christian Scientist said she needed no
earthly physician, and the daughter ae-
Qulesced. Mrs. Miller died a few hours
Mrs. Miller wap an employe of the Ful
ton Cotton Mills. She was about 42 years
old. She leaves a husband and two sons
in Texas. At the lime of her death she
was living with her mother in the Fac
tory Hotel, a three-story structure on
Grant street. It was from her room in
the top story that she fell to death.
Her mother, Mrs. Dick, is a Christian
Scientist, and Mrs. Miller herself was a
believer in this religion, but was not a
member of the church. She asked that
something be done for her and a doctor
be called, but her mother said that God
was her doctor, and no human physician
should come into her home. The other
women present, friends and neighbors of
the injured one. added their entreaties
and arguments to those of the woman
herself, but her mother positively refused
to have a doctor come to the home.
