PROVIDING FOR PUBLICATION OF COTTON CROP DATA.

Mr. Morris of Victoria offered the following resolution:

Whereas, The cotton situation is of the gravest concern to the people of Texas and the members of this House; and

Whereas, Any information of value relating to the cotton crop should be placed before this body; and

Whereas, The impression prevails that the price of cotton generally declines during and following the war periods, which is tending in a large measure to depress the price of cotton at this time and is contrary to the record; therefore, be it

Resolved, That the accompanying table from Miler's History of the Cotton System, giving the production, total acreage, estimated value, average net weight of bale, value of lint by the pound, from 1790 to 1906, be published in the House Journal:

Table No. 15.

Production, Total Acreage, Total Estimated Value, Average Net Weight of Bale, Value of Lint by the Pound, from 1790 to 1906.

This Statement shows the running bales as they come from the press, round bales being counted as halves.

The values given are for cotton, including linters, and not for the value of cotton seed products.

(Linters, short fiber taken from the seed at the oil mills.).

A quorum was announced present.

Mr. Ferguson of the adoption of a resolution inviting him to address the House, submitted the following communication, which was read to the House:

Temple, Texas, August 31, 1914. Otto Wahrmund, care Driskill Hotel, Austin, Texas:

Telegram from yourself and friends inviting me to address the House received. While I deeply appreciate the invitation and feel that I am signally honored, yet I feel that my acceptance would be a matter of doubtful propriety at this time. In view of the fact that the Legislature is now engaged in the consideration of matters than mean so much to the welfare of our people, I do not think it proper to intrude upon the time, which might be spent in more important deliberations. I am extremely anxious that nothing stand in the way of speedy relief of the present crisis.

Again thanking you.

JAS. E. FERGUSON.
