Jordan. "It is not necessary and
no such action will even be sug
gested at the New Orleans con
vention. We hope to be able,
to make arrangements along
business lines 'that will solve the
present problem, and also those
in the, future relative to the price,
of cotton. There will be a large
number of bankers and Southern
cotton manufacturers at the. meet-
ing. We need the active co-oper
ation of our bankers and also the .
spinners if we are to take our cot
ton out of the hands : of specula-,
tors. The New Orleans conven
tion will be much more largely
attended than at first anticipated,
and the commissioners ot agricuJ
ture of all Southern States will be
there." - - : : W
