of the most serious attacks ever made
upon the treaty-making power of the
United States will mark the opening
of the coming term of the Supreme
Court of the United States next
The Italian Government, through
its Consul-General on the Pacific
Coast, will argue that the United
States possesses broad enough treaty
making power to deal with the settle
ment of estates of foreigners who die
in this country without leaving wills.
Public officials from California will
contend that the Federal Government
has no such power and will ask the
court to do what it never yet has
done, declare a treaty constitutional.
More than twenty nations with treat
ies similar to this one between the
United States and Italy will await the
decision of the court. In many re
spects the question involved resem
bles the Japanese school question in
California, during the Rooserelt ad
ministration, and it is said that the
decision would control the latter
question- should it arise again.
The case which the Supreme Court
will be called upon to consider arose
over the settlement of the estate of

seed, having been $1,030,000,000.
This remarkable statement is con
tained in the detailed statistics of last
season's cotton crop issued to-day by
Col. Henry G. Hester, Secretary of
the New Orleans Cotton Exchange.
With 1,700,000 bales less than was
contained in the bumper crop of 1903
and 1909, the crop just marketed net
ted the South $254,000,000 more.
The 13,511,000-bale crop of 1906
1907 brought $222,000,000 less than
the past season's crop.
As a rule, the crop averaged within
a shade of strict middling and the
farmer was paid an average of 14.60
cents a pound.
Regarding the consumption of cot
ton, the report says:
"In the United States the mills
North and South have consumed near
ly as much as last year, in addition
to which they have imported the
greatest quantity of foreign cotton
ever brought to this country in any
one season, amounting to an equiva
lent, in this year's American weights,
of 222,206 bales.
Thus far the use of foreign cotton
in this country is trifling compared
with the total consumption, but its in
crease is significant.

the quantity of American cotton con
