2 FIGHT OF COTTON GROWERS. HILL MAKE A STRONG PI EE FOH TEA CEATS A POl AD. Frrkldent Jordon I r*r Ibe Cotton Growers miU nu*ie* Men In All loontieo Where Orsrnnization Hus Aot Been Perfected, to Ornanire nt Once—Tell Cent Cotion Would Mean About if 10.000,000 More to the Eormers of Geornln. 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 said to-day: "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 future. "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 later. 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. DEATH OF MRS. STRICKLAND. She Witn Operated Upon n Week %j*o for AppendleltiM. Valdosta, Ga , Aug:. 11.—Mrs. Torlev Strickland died at the family home on Patterson siren lost night a little before 10 o'clock.

An operation was performed upon her last Sunday by Dr. Holmes of Atlanta and Dr. Ben Burton of this city, assisted by two other local physicians. The operation was regarded as successful, and there was some hope for her recov ery afterward, but the* fever continued so high ihUt all hope was given up on Wed nesday. Mrs. Strickland was a daughter of Mr. William Roberts of this city and a sis ter of J. T Roberts, William Roberts, formerly of Savannah, and Frank and Ben Roberts. She was a most estimable young woman, and her death Is generally lamented here. She leaves a husband and several children. PI TXAM <Ol \TY ITEMS. Drrmise in Tax Returns—Other Mat ters of Interest.
