Atlanta. The Rock Hill plan of

Southern Merchants' convention at
their meeting in thla city, in the fol

"Whereas, the South made 13,000,-

now buying the sarplus of tbe last
crop to cary over iuto 1912; there,

"Resolved, That we, the Southern
Merchants' convention, deem it un
wise to encourage the production of
a large crop in 1912, because anoth-

would cause general and serious de

to the statement.
'Plant only so much cotton as can
be raised at a profit and devote the
remainder of your endeavor to tbe
raising of corn and other crops need

and the convention went on record
as believing that this Is the only
certain method of avoiding the. finan
cial strlgency which Is now following
in the wake of the South's record cot
ton crop." -:'
. Not only did the convention go on
record as believing that the reduc
tion of the cotton crop is the farm
er's only salvation in the matter of
better crops, but it went further and
adopted a resolution favoring tbe
Rock Hill plan of reduction, follow
ing strong addresses by prominent
men from different sections of the
state, sholng the absolute necessity
of drastic and immediate action to
remedy existing conditions relative
to the price of cotton.
When the meeting was called to

for the merchants who came
to Atlanta to discuss problems of In
