of being responsible for the death of Claus
sen's wife, which occurred on his ranch on
Wolf creek In the foothills of the Big
Horn, July 3, have been held for trial at

Claussen explained them to her, and sat
apparently unmoved throughout the trial.
Claussen steadily maintains bis innocence

Warrant ton Trices Sow
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.1. "Hold cotton
for 13 cents." Is the advhe to be formally
given to farmers' .organisations by a rom
mittee consisting of Senators Wlltlsms of
Mississippi and Owen of Oklahoma and
Representative Burleson of Texas, repre
senting a conference of senators and rep
resentatives from seven cotton-growing
states. A committee will urge the state
banking associations to co-operate against
the bearish movement or the shippers.'
What was referred to generally as the
"threatening condition of the cotton mar
ket" was thoroughly discussed at meetings
today and last night. Among the par
ticipants were Senators Williams and
Owen, Representative Underwood of Ala-
bama, democratic leader of the house;
llepresentative Heflln of Alabama, brant
ley and Hughes of Georgia, IJurleson and
Beall of Texas. Gsrret . of Tennessee,
Humphreys of Mississippi and .Sinuil ot
North Carolina. A number of them are
large cotton planters.
Xlatcnient by Committee
The committee issued a statement which
read In part as follows:
"It kerned to be the opinion of all that
(here was a preconcerted effort being made,
principally through the Instrumentality of
the speculative element 01 the Ne.v; York
cotton exchange, to break down the price
of cotton. It as the opinion of all that
the present statistical condition of cotton
did not justify the lowness of present
quotations and that the estimate of 15,000,
000 bales was in Justified by any facis on
which a prediction could be sanely baseo
and that moreover even if a li.OOO.uno bale
crop were in sight the world's supply
still probably would fall short of the
world's demand for cotton to the extent
of more than 1.000,000 bales because of the
exhaustion of the present Visible supply of
carrled-over spot cotton. In other words,
that with a 13.000,000 American crop the
world's crop for 1911 would , mho up only
2S,000.0OO with 140,000.001) of spindles creating
an active demand for 28,000.000 bale.
"This committee was also requested to
communicate In some. way with the pres
idents of the several state banking asso
ciations in the cotton states, asking them
as far as possible to throw their moral and
financial support behind the effort to
counteract tho bearish movement of the
exporters with the view of obtaining fair
price for the farmers' cotton.
"Information was given at the Informal
conference that assurances would be given
to President Barrett or to southern banks
that ample funds from banks outside of
the south could be had through the Instru
mentality of southern financial Institutions
to be ient at tho rate of 8 per cent per
annum, to those who did not wish to dis
pose of their cotton at a sacrifice upon
cotton warehouse statistics. This com
mittee subsequently met In the office of
Penator Williams of Mississippi and con
sulted the best way to carry out the Ideas
suggested and agreed on what statement
to give to the Associated Press.
