TIFT DEFENDS TARIFF Asks That Timber Schedule Be Left Undisturbed. HAD RAlllEjYjmi PAYNE Chairman Asks Why People of the South Vote Against Tariff and Then Ask for Protection. Washington, D. C. The timber schedule was again under discussion before the house ways and means committee. H. H. Tift of Tilton, Ga., who appeared at the request of the committee, said that the creation of forest reserves by the government had had the effect of increasing the price of stumpage. He declared that the government gets the highest prices for what it sells. Mr. Tift asked that the lumber schedule be left undisturbed, saying that the free entry of lumber would not tend to conserve the American forests, and that the consumers prob ably would get no benefit in the way of reduced prices. He admitted that he would be sat isfied with the retention of the tariff on the lower grades of lumber. Chairman Payne asked Mr. Tift why the people of the south come before the committee and ask for higher duties than the people from any other section, and then vote for a low tariff in the national election. “Taft got 40,000 votes in Georgia,” remarked the witness. "Yes,” replied Mr. Payne; "but he should have gotten a majority.” "There was no campaign made in Georgia for him,” retorted the wit ness. John H. Finney, representing the Appalachian National Forest Associa tion, urged the committee to take the duty off certain white pine seedings, which, he said, were needed for re forestation, as this type of trees does not reproduce itself. CATTLE RAISING IN GEORGIA Will Be Chief Topic of Discussion at Farmers' Conference. Athens, Ga. —What promises to be the most interesting gathering of the farmers to be held during the com ing year, is that to be known as the Farmers’ Conference, which will be held under the direction of Dr. A. M, Soule, president of the State Ag ricultural College, from January 18th to the 23rd, inclusive. Commissioner of Agriculture T. G. Hudson has been invited to attend this conference and deliver an ad dress, which he has accepted. In ad dltion, State Entomologist E. L. Wor sham will also attend this confer ence, and it is expected that Govern or Smith, State School Commijppner Jere M. Pound and State CheMst R. E. Stallings will also attend and de liver short and instructive talks. Cattle trading in Georgia is to be one of the chief topics of discussion. Dr. Soule is a staunch advocate of the use of cotton seed meal mixed with hulls as a cattle feed, having made numerous tests which proved it to be the best, as well as the cheapest feed on the market. The dairy operated in connection wtih the agricultural college, where this ration is fed to the milch cows, will be one of the interesting exhibits during the conference, as will be the rich products secured from this dairy. The full program of the conference is to be announced later, giving the names of the speakers and their sub jects Georgia, as an agricultural state, is rapidly forging ahead in the great interest being aroused over the de velopment of Georgia, raised prod' ucts. NEW STATE FARM. Prison Board Ptans Purchase of 5,000 Acre Tract. Atlanta, Ga.—The prison commis sion has under consideration a prop osition to purchase a far mof about 5 000 acres to he used exclusively for white convicts, the idea being to em ploy them upon the farm rather than upon the public roads.

Atlanta, Ga. —After thorough inves tigation, the state school book com mission has finished the task of re vising the school book system of the state and making the final adoptions of the text-books to be used in the common schools during the next five years, beginning January !l, 1909, or as soon as the changes can be effect ed in the various schools. With a view to securing uniformity and simplicity as nearly as possible, the commission dropped several books from the various branches and substituted other books written by the same author. The only new books adopted were Wentworth’s New Elementary Arith metic, which will precede Went worth’s Practical Arithmetic, and Hyde’s Second Book of Grammar, to follow Hyde’s Course in English. The latter book is already in use in the largeroities of the state and may be purchased' for 40 cetns. The new arithmetic will cost 25 cents. The books dropped by the commis sion are Bacon’s Primary and Inter mediate Arithmetic, Mines’ Standard Arithmetic, Reed & Kellogg’s Graded Lessons in English Grammar, Conn’s Elementary Physiology, Coleman’s Elements of Physiology and Holton’s Primer.
