unsuccessful effort on the part: of
Senator Bailey to defeat the passage
of ihe usual resolution that the daily
sessions begin at noon, suggesting
that the Senate should convene in
stead at '2 o'clock. Mr. Bailey said
he would like to see the Senate hold
niaht sessions in order that Senators
hf devote the day to . individual
business." No objection was offered,
v hen a similar resolution was iutro-
lueed in the House.
A joint eomtnittee was named by
both houses to wait upon the Presi
dent and to inform him that Congress
was in session "and ready for any bus

IWESA REPORT TO BOARD
Major Graham Commissioner of Agri
culture Reviews the Agricultural
Status in North Carolina Re
ceipts of Department $132,258.75.
Raleigh, Special. For the annual
meeting of the State Board of Agri
culture hich convened here Wednes
day for probably three days' session,
the feature for- the day was the an
nual report of Commissioner W. A.
Graham treating' farm conditions in
North Carolina and the work of the
various''duTiona of the department.
The report .dfelares the results of
farming operations this year were in
different section of the State and
that while the yields were very good
in some sections they were quite in
ferior in others. So that the North
Carolina crop census in connection
with the general census by the United
States government will not show an
average yield for the State. Farm
ers, he says, have given tar .better
attention to their work this year than
in the past, especially as to improved
culture of corn, due in a large mea-
sure to institute work and corn clubs
in connection with demonstration
work. He says the great interest in
agricultural work is phenomenal and
urges the board to devise some met
hod of assuring, its permanency.
Soil Improvement and Divesity of
The report urges the necssity of
striving more effectively for per
manent improvement of soils and
diversity of crops through raising all
farm supplies. Attention is directed
:i6 the- fact, as he stated -it, that
Kortii Carolina pays -to dealers in
other' States for supplies that could
be produced on the North Carolina
farms more money than is gotten for
the entire, c.otton crop of the State.
As long afe this is the case the only
cotton money left in the State is that
realized by profits by the - dealers
selling the . . supplies.
The yield of cotton in this State
will', he says, be the smallest per acre
dn record. This will also be the
case as to corn. At the same time
some yields of both crops will be
Receipts For the Year $132,258.75.
Commissioner Graham reports re
ceipts of the department for the fiscal
year ending Dec. 1, 1909, $132,253.75.
The amount remaining in the treas
ury at the end of this fiscal year was
aot given in the report. He report
ed $15,000 paid on the debt for the
A. & if. Agricultural building and a
balance due of $15,000. This he re
commended to be speedily liquidated
by special appropriation from the re-
.peipts of the department.

finest agricultural exhibits at the
State and the district fairs this fall
ever made in the State, due largely
to the attractive supplemental pre

Labor and Printing, M. . Shipman
will show decided improvement in
the chapter of farms and farm labor,
especially in application of better
methods of farming, in the efficiency
of labor and. an advance toward in
tensive farming. The report declares
that a gratifying inerease'in breadth
of vision is noticeable among the
farmers generally, says the report,
due largely to the effeetivp ofFr.f
through the state department of agri
culture and the special bulletins is
sued by the various divisions, in
creased diversification of crops. Mar
ket value of 87 counties. Decrease

age 47.71 per hundred pounds.
, In the general introductory to the
report covering the whole scope of
to work of the department Com
missioner Shipman says the disinclin
ation, especially on the part of
some manufacturers to furnish the
required reports has largely disap
peared, but there are still many that
give trouble by neglecting, to prompt
ly fill out and return the blanks.
The effort to give statistics of organi
zed' and unorganized labor failed this
year but it is the purpose to have
such 'a report for the next year.
Commissioner Shipman or Assistant
Commissioner George B. Justice have
gone into every section of the state
wherever necessary to make sure of
getting the fullest and most accu
rate reports oossible. In spite of
great effort, the commissioner says
it has been impossible to secure ab
solutely complete ' reports of micel
laneous factories. Hoever the re
ports of cotton, woolen and silk
mills are complete.
