Congress fin- r .i,...i ;n work on the threat war tax Will late yesterday when the Senate, t..!l..vin;r the example set yesterday hv the House, adopted the conference iij.ort without a roll call. More than f,o and a half billion dollars of new taxes are levid by the measure, which has been in the making: since last April. As soon as the bill is engrossed and -a.-neJ tomorrow by Vice President Marshall and Speaker Clark, it will be sent to President Wilson, who is expected to sign it immediately. Senate discussion today was brief, lirtioipated in by but few "members, all of whom realized futility of op position. Most of the criticism was upon the second-class postage in creases. Mis Hopes for Adjournment The speedy action on the confer ence report raised members' hopes for adjournment of the war session by Saturday or not later than next week. The administration soldiers and sail ers' insurance bill, which has passed the House, will be brought up to morrow in the Senate. Its disposal iii other measure the leaders expect to put through before adjournment is the eight billion dollar deficiency ap propriation bill, whose conferees ex pect to agree tomorrow and secure adoption of their report with perfunc tory debate. As finally drafted after one of the longest and most strenuous struggles in congressional history, the revenue bill, which was passed by the House Hay 23 and by the Senate, after a month's debate, September 10, draws principally upon incomes and war ex cess profits. The bill now is estimated to raise about $850,000,000 from ineonfes, cor porate and individual, and about one billion dollars from war excess prof its. Other major levies are $30,000, wtO on tobacco; about $275,000,000 on liquors; $70,000,000 on first-class mail; $40,000,000 on automobiles; $77,500, 000 on freight transportation; $60, Oort.OOO on passenger transportation; $32,000,00C- from stamp taxes, and 60,000,000 from amusement admis sions. Evolution of Bill Elimination' of consumption taxes ou sugar, tea, coffee, and gas, elec tric and telephone service, together with House taxes on 1916 incomes and a general 1 per cent tariff levy, were features of the evolution of the biil. Both praise and criticism was given the conference report today in the Senate conferees, in a two-hour ex planation of the conference work, said the bill had been decidedly im proved, though he was unable to de fend certain provisions insisted upon by the House conferees, including the second-class mail and munitions taxes. Senator Penrose, ranking republi can conferee, also said many objec tionable features were included in con ference compromises and that the bill might work individual injustices, but that it had been improved in many respects. Vigorous criticism of the bill, par ticularly the second-class postage pro vision, was made by Senator Smoot, of Utah. Many publishers, he assert e l, would be driven out of business. He and other senators expressed hope that before the new second-class rates become effective next July they will be repealed or modified. The closing speech was made by senator LaFollette, who reiterated his opposition to the- small amount of taxation proposed compared to large bond issues and his demands for great er taxation of wealth. He said he would refer until sometime later some observations he had intended on the MU and "matters connected with it." NO NEW CAMP SITES LIKELY TO BE CHOSEN Washington, Oct. 2. Secretary of War Baker Will lonuo WaoVii Charlotte Friday night, arriving about 10 a. m. SatllT-Haw Tlio oarrifnriT told Representative Webb today that he had definitely decided to visit Camp Greene at that time. Mr. Baker's visit lu nanotte is largely due to the ef forts of Representative Webb who has visits to the war depart ment to urge Baker to make the trip -Mr. Webb may accompany the distin guished visitor Adjutant General McCain told Rep resentative Robinson today that the i..n. j , u. uepartment thinks well of Fay etteville as a camp site and would ' j tDU3n a camp there n more camns McCain doubts, however, if new camps w a"iea at this time.

There are four reasons which make such an opinion absolutely inescap able: 1. The crop is 2,000,000 million bales short of what the world needs. We are now producing at the rate of 12, 000,000 bales a year and spining at the rate of 14,000,000 bales a year, as in disputable official figures show. The latest Government estimate indicates an American crop of only 12,499,000 bales, whereas the New Orleans Cot ton Exchange reports that: the actual consumption of American cotton in the fiscal, year ending August 1, 1917, was 14,046,000 bales and in the fiscal year ending August 1, 1916, 14,812, 000 bales. And.on top of this we face the fact that a million more Ameri can spindles are now running than were running a year ago 33,430.016 against 32,292,103 as the United States Census Bureau officially reports. Moreover, not only are we short 2,000,000 bales on the American crop for the coming year, but we have al ready run practically 2,000,000 bales short on world supply during the past year as the Census Bureau interest ed in nothing but the facts, also re ports. Here are its official, impartial, and unassailable figures: "The world's production of com mercial cotton, exclusive of linters, grown in 1916, was approximately 18,305,000 bales of 500 pounds net, while the consumption of cot ton (exclusive of linters in the United States) for the year end ing July 31, 1917, was approxi mately. 20,180,000 bales of 500 pounds net." World's production for past year, 18,365,000 bales; consumption 20,180, 000 bales. In other words, the world for a year past has already been eat ing up the cotton surplus at the rate of nearly 2,000,000 bales a year, and now must face the fact that the new American crop is short another 2,000, 000 bales. 27 Cotton at 25 cents will then have advaced only in proportion to other products. Since August 1, 1914, as eheh Atlanta Constitution shows, corn has gone from 76 cents a bushel to $2.08; wheat from 91 cents to a Gov ernment-fixed price of $2.20; and oats have advanced from 37 cents to 60; whereas cotton was then 13 cents and ?5 now only 20. In other words, wheat is worth 2 1-3 rimes what it was before the war, orn 2 3-4 times as much, and oats .early twice as much, while at 25 c-nts a pound cotton would not even lave doubled in value. 3. Cotton mills could pay 30 cents and still make big profits. Only this week a stockholder in a cotton mill said to a friend of ours, "Our mill made 100 per cent profit last year, but I know two other mills which made 150 per cent." While this condition may be exceptional, it is also excep tional to find a man that is not mak ing almost sinful profits. 4. While all these conderations should assure .t least 25 cents in war times, peace would boost prices even higher. Among the millions and mil lions of people that the war has pre vented from getting American cot ton, there is bound to be by now an actual cotton famine, and as soon as oeace comes, there will thunder to every holder of spots a hurry-call not merely for a normal supply of cot ton for the coming year, but for an utterly abnormal supply, limited by the ability of mills to use it by 24- hour-a-day consumption. How much actual peace will boost cotton prices i3 faintly indicated by the fact that even the merest glimmer of hope fn that direction the news of Pope Bene dict's suggestion for a discussion of terms immediately sent up prices 78 points a pound in the New York Ex change and 89 points in New Orleans. YOUNG MAN COMMITS SUICIDE Wilson. Oct. 2. Brooding over the possibility of having to go to the war Levy Webb, a young white man, oi Saratocra township, Wilson county, committed suicide Monday. He re ported here at the proper time before the local board for examination and, it is elleged, played the part of being mentally weak so well that the board, for the time being and until they could investigate his case, deferred examination. ' Later young men from Webb's neighborhood told a member of the board that there was nothing mentally wrong with Webb and that he should be made to take his medicine. Word was sent to him to report back to the board and rather than comply he put an end to his existence. The American people can enable the French to maintain their one ounce per day per capita consumption of sug ar by reducing our consumption one-third. TEDDY TELLS OF VENEZUELA AFFAIR IN '03 Chicago, Sept. 28. Col. Roosevelt gave his version of the secret confer ences he held with the German am bassador in 1902, relating to the oc cupation of Venezuela by Germany, an incident that then threatened to bring on a war between Germany and the United States. Col. Roosevelt told the story for the first time, he said, in an address at a luncheon here. "It was about a year after I took office," Col. Roosevelt began, "Ger many was engaged in striving to ex tend her dominions. She had in "view certain chosen positions in South America. She aimed to turn South America into a German appendage. Venezuela at that, time had a dictator named Castro, commonly known as the 'Monkey of the Andes.' "I was determied that Venezuela should not become a German posses sion. Germany said it was not to be permanent and did . not define what was meant by permanency. I permit ted John Hay to write a number of notes and then I sent for the Ger man ambassador and said to him: "This Venezuela business has been going on long enough and I cannot afford to let it get to the point where it will cause trouble for this country. "At that time England was backing Germany, and, while I had both against me, I paid little attention to England. It was the last flicker of England's antagonism to the United States. "I called the attention of the am bassador to the fact that Germany had a squadron of warships near Ven ezuela, threatening the mouth of the proposed Isthmian canal. I demand ed a statement of what Germany meant by temporary possession, say ing I did not propose to have any 99 year leases. "The ambassador told me he did not feel at liberty to discuss such an important question. That conference wound up with the following ultima tum: " 'Tell your government that in ten days it must arbitnate tne matter or I will send Dewey down there.' " 'I cannot send such a message, Mr. President; I do not think you real ize what it means,' the ambassador re plied. " 'You think it meana..wajJ2J! I amik ed. " 'I tlo not want to say what I think," was the reply. " 'If it means war, you have chosen the one spot where you cannot fight us.' I replied, and then I showed by maps our commanding position. "When he retired I sent word to Dewey to be ready to sail on an hour's notice. .About a week later, the am bassador called on me and admitted that he had not dared send the meas sage. "I then told him that I would order Dewey to sail in 48 hours. He told me it would be an awful thing for this country. "Yes, but it will be more awful for your country,' I replied. "Inside of 36 hours he came back smiling and said he had received in structions from the German govern ment that they would arbitrate." FARMERS AGREE UPON 30 CENTS FOR COTTON New Orleans, Oct. 2. A price of 30 cents a pound to the farmer was agreed upon at a meeting here today of .men interested in marketing and growing of cotton in 10 southern states as being justified by the pres ent selling prices of manufactured cot ton products. The price was suggest ed in an amendment to a resolution adopted just previously w,hich declar ed against price regulation of cotton by Congress or delegating of this authority to any other body. Although the amendment, introduc ed by L. B. Jackson, director of the Georgia bureau of markets, met with some opposition, it was recognized as a compromise and was almost unani mously adopted. Unsuccessful efforts to have the amendment read '35 in stead of 30 cents were made by E. W. Dabbs, of Mayesville, S: C, and other leaders in the movement, to secure a 30-cent minimum. Following the address of John Park er, state food administrator, the dele gates adopted a resolution providing for the appointment" of - a committee of seven to confer in Washington with Herbert Hoover, food administrator, regarding cottonseed price.. Resolutions also were' adopted in dorsing the movement to have bales of cotton standardized throughout the belt by making them of the uniform size of 54 inches long by 27 , inches wide. While many delegates early today advocated holding cotton for mini mum prices ranging from 30 to 42 cents, general sentiment was against such action. Addresses by Senator Ransdell, State Food Administrator Parker and Wm. B.Thompson presi dent of the New Orleans Dock board, opposed the fixing' of a minimum price. Growers were urged by Sena tor Ransdell and Mr. Thompson to hold their cotton, market it judiciously and if necessary borrow money on it in storage. , STRONGEST ATTACK YET ATTEMPTED BY GERMAN AIRPLANES London, Oct. 2. In last night's air raid 10 persons were killed and 38 in jured. London,. Oct. 2. The strongest at tack yet attempted on London and the coast towns by the Germans, was car ried out last night by four groups of hostile airplanes. Some of the ma chines got through to London and bombed the southwestern district. A terrific barrage was sent up from the defense guns and the roar of bat tle lasted intermittently for two and a half hours. Field Marshal Lord French, commander-in-chief the home forces, is sued the following report: "A group of hostile airplanes cross ed the Essex coast at 7 o'clock last evening and proceeded across Essex toward London. "This group of fjfachines was fol lowed at about a quarter of an hour's interval by a second group, which pur sued the same course. "The first attack on London was de livered from the. northeast about 7:45 p. m. Most of the raiders were turn ed back, but one or more ofHhe ma chines penetrated the defences and dropped bombs in the southwestern district. "About 8:15 p. m. the second group of raiders attempted to cross the de fenses at various points in northeast and north London, but without suc cess until shortly after 9 o'clock, when a few of the machines passed across London and bombs were again drop ped in the southwestern district. "Meanwhile, a third group of raid ers crossed the Kentish coast and dropped bombs at various places. The group did not penetrate very far west ward. "A fourth group of enemy machines crossed the Essex coast about 8:50 o'clock and preceeded toward London, which was approached shortly before 10 o'clock. They did not penetrate furthre than the northeast outskirts of London, where some bombs are re ported to have been dropped." Standing Test Well London, Oct. 2. Londoners, despite the repeated German attempts to drop bombs upon the city t are standing the test well. Last, jus when two..sa.ua.-. drons of raiders succeeded in getting close to London and some of their number over the city, there was no panic and no untoward incidents. , Immediately the coming of the raid ers was signalled, the people in the streets scurried for cover, while motor busses and carts drew up to the curb where the passengers alighted quick ly. Within five minutes, the streets were deserted virtually and a strange silence fell over the city. Most of the offices and shops had closed before 6 o'clock to permit their employes to reach their homes and there were only a fraction of the num ber of persons in the street as under normal circumstances. With the gath ering of dusk, many of the poorer classes, particularly the women and children, had gathered at the tube stations around the Guild Hall and St. Paul's and other places of refuge. The police and special constables, aligned them in files and when- the warning was given they were shepherded into the refuges without crowding. Thea tres which are open had small audi ences and the majority of the res taurants were almost deserted. The air battles over London have become so much a matter of course that whenever there was a lull for a few minutes in the firing, the busses strated running again and the people flocked into the streets.

The urgency of prompt action upon the part of the households, hotels and cafes of the country in falling in line with the pro gramme of the Food Administration is strikingly suggested in a telegram received by State Food Administrator Harry A. Page today from Herbert Hoover, U. S. Food Administrator. The telegram, which must receive a response from ail true Americans, is as follows: "We have received a request from the French Government that we allow them to export from the United States 100,000 tons of sugar during the next month and probably more at a later period. "Our own situation is that we have just sufficient sugar to maintain our normal consumption until the first of January when the new West Indian crop becomes available to all. Our consumption is at the rate of 90 pounds per person each year, a little under four ounces per day per per son. The French people ore on a. ra tion of sugar equal to only 21 ounces per annum per person or at the rate of less than one single ounce per per son, a little more than the weight of a silver dollar each day. The Eng lish and Italian rations are also not over one ounce per day. "The French people will be entirely without sugar for over two months if we refuse to part with enough from our stocks to keep them supplied with even this small allowance as it is not available from any other quarter. Su gar even to a greater amount than the French ration is a human necessity. If our people will reduce by one-third their purchases and consumption of candy, and of sugar for other uses than perserving fruit we do not wish to interfere with, we can save the French situation. "In the interest of the French peo ple and of the loyalty we owe them to divide our food in the maintenance of our common, cause, I ask the Ameri can people to do this. . j "It is unthinkable that we refuse their requests, "Herbert Hoover." The only way to give the French people even one ounce of sugar per day is for each man, woman, boy and girl in America to reduce his consump tion one-third. AIRPLANES AGAIN BOMBARD LONDON City Given Warning, People Take to Cover While Battle Goes on Overhead London, Sept 29. Hostile airplanes raided London again tonight. An official communication from the home office on the latest raid says: "Hostile airplanes crossed the coasts of Kent and Essex in groups between 8 and 9 o'clock. Several attacks were made upon London and some . bombs were dropped in the northeast and southeastern districts. Bombs were also dropped at vari ous places in Kent and Essex. No re ports of casualties have yet been re ceived." ' London's warning of an impending raid was given quickly by policemen raiding through the streets with "take cover" signsn their breasts, and ev ery one hurried to shelter. Soon the distant roar of guns was heard. Then the' explosions of guns and the crack of shrapnel bursting in the air came nearer. The flash of the bursting shells in the night was incessant. From all directions the defense guns boomed. Mingled with the sound of the guns the whirring of Gothas was heard overhead. Bombs began to drop, as could be told by their peculiar explos ion. The fire of the anti-aircraft guns seemed heavier than on any pre vious raids and it was obvious that barrages were being thrown up to defeat the purpose of the raiders. At this time it appears that the barrages at least prevented the raiders from having their own way. INSANITY, SUICIDE WILL BE DEFENSE, IT IS INTIMATED Suicide and emotional insanity will be defense in the hearing of Gaston B. Means, of Concord charged with the murder of Mrs. Maude A. King of New York and Chicago, on the night of August 29, it is now said. There have been many hints at this, having their origin at points far scat tered over the country one even com ing from the state of Washington where a relative of Mrs. King is said to have intimated that she had been the subject of strange fears and pre sentments for five or six years' pre ceding her death. These suggestions of an unbalanced mind have also crept out from time to time as the exciting history of the case was unfolded, an other important foundation being found in the alleged declaration of a physician that Mrs. King had under gone an operation the results of which were most frequently productive of insanity. The defense, composed of E. T. Cans ler, Judge F. I. Osborne, and six at torneys from Concord, will lay its foundation on the slight divergence of opinion between Dr. Schultz, medi cal expert to the district attorney of New York and Dr. Burmeister, at tached to the coroner's office in Chica- Dr. Burmeister, the first expert call ed at Monday's hearing in Concord, said that if the hair was not singed apd no burning of the ends of the hair were found, he would not be positive that the pistol which killed Mrs. King was fired within 11 inches of her head, the maximum limit fixed by the ex perts at which Mrs. King could have held the little automatic Colts 25 re volver. Dr. Otto Schultz testified that he was absolutely positive that Mrs. King could not have shot herself, and that singeing of the hair was not a posi tive proof. It will be on the lack of agreement between the experts that the defense will begin to build its foundation, assuming that Dr. Bur meister and Dr. Schultz were at va riance on what will be argued as one of the important details of the evi dence. Defense will contend that the divergence in the expert testimony will go to show that Mrs. King could have shot herself, and yet that the marks would not appear on the scalp or skin. It is also said that the contention will be set up that Mrs. King wore some false hair, and that there was also a "rat" in her hair, and that these materials would have received any powder 'turns that might have been produced on the hair. Mr. Cansler last night would not admit that this theory of the death of Mrs. King would be offered by the defense and did not desire to be quot ed on the matter. Judge Osborne, who was in Gastonia, gave out nothing on the new emotional insanity and suicide theory of the defense.

COAL KJSXAU-JBiier rtturiis LIMITED BY ORDER ISSUED Immediate Reduction to Consumer Is Expected Order Effective Today New Order Completes Government . Control of the Industry. Recent f Prices Revised. A Washington, Sept. 30. Government Control over the coal industry was made complete tonight by an order of Fuel Administrator Garfield limiting ; the profits of retail coal and coke deal ers throughout the countiy to a basis which is expected to bring about an immediate reduction in prices to the consumer. The order, effective tomorrow, di rects that the retailers shall fix their prices so as to limit their gross mar gins over cost to the average of sufh gross margins during the year. 1917 plus a maximum of 30 per cent of the 1915 margin, provided that in no case shall the average margin of the month of July this year be exceeded.. . r Local committees appointed by the federal fuel administrators in each state will see to it that the dealers comply with the order and the dealers themselves will be called upon to re turn sworn cost sheets showing tbe facts upon which they have based their prices. Doctor Garfield selected 1915 as a normal year because the coal-shortage which resulted in continued rises in prices did not begin until 1916. The additional 30 per cent is allowed to cover the increase in the retailers' cost of doing business which has increas ed substantially during the past two years. Prices already fixed by -the govern ment for coal at the mouth of the mine near those charged in 1915, and with the jobbers' charge now limited to 25 cents a ton and the cost of trans portation not materially increased the consumer in every community should be able to get coal of any description at approximately the price he paid in 1915. In other orders tonight the fuel ad ministrator made the first revisions of his recently fixed prices of coal at the mine. One makes changes on .an- .. thracite pea coal in the' Pennsylvania field as follows: White ash, $3.40 instead tf $4.00; red ash, $3.50 instead of $4.10; Lykens valley, $3.75 instead of $4.35r f- w K Another,; order revises upward the mine "prices in certain bitumino'us dis tricts in which; unusual -conditions ex ist, making' the cost of production',' greater than in the principal bitumi-' .' nous fields. ; . "y Tonight's orders also provide that Smithing and Cannel coal may be sold at prevailing market prices until fur- ther notice. r ' ...
