After four days' Session, rer.^.v
with interesting developments and
much hard work, the greatest gath-
ering of Southern representative
men ever assembled, adjourned at
New Orleans on January 28th.
Among those present were not
only cotton planters, but bankers
merchants, manufacturers and pro-
fessional men, whose interests are
aic yuuun, en- icssionai men, wnose interests are
ergetic, shrewd business men. good as great in the profitable produc-

buyers and good advertisers, and
their dissolution of partnership
means that they are going to do
some tall rustling for business.
We are glad to see these two
stocks, the Gilliland and the Mc-
Kindley stores, purchased by home
people, men who are known both
by the people who will buy from
them and by the wholesale firms
with whom they will do business.
It is one more, or rather, two more
assertions of the faith Mangum
business men have always shown
in Mangum, as a business center.
It is this spirit which has built
tion of cotton as those raising it.
The results of this convention,
or meeting, far surpassed the most
sanguine expectations of the cotton
grower who was watching it with
keenest interest. Instead of sim-
ply adopting a set of resolutions,
advising what the "stay-at-home"
planter should do, they went much
farther and agreed upon a plan of
permanent organization, whereby
each cotton grower in the South
would have an opportunity of be-
coming a member. When this or-
ganization is completed, as it will
be, the Southern Cottou Associa

steadily kept her forgoing ahead,
and this spirit which will continue
her upbuilding. Both establish-
ments will undoubtedly add to
their big stocks of goods, and these
with the other immense stocks of
merchandise handled by other pro-
gressive merchants, will enable
Mangum to say to the people of
the surrounding cities and villages:
"Come to Mangum to trade.
We've got more goods to select

Ladies' Club Meeting.
The "Aftermath Club" was de-
lightfully entertained by Mrs. J.
A. Oliphant at her hospitable home
on North Pennsylvania avenue
Thursday afternoon. As usual
there was a full attendance, as the
members are very enthusiastic, not
allowing the inclement weather to
keep them at home. The roll call
was answered with current events,
these being ably discussed by the
members. Miss Creightou Brown,
of Anadarko, was a very pleasant
visitor, and she, with Miss Oli-
phant, gave us some excellent vo-
A most interesting feature of the
afternoon was the two course lunch-

The South's greatest crop—cot-
ton—has long been neglected along
this line, and the producer has had
no opportunity of dictating prices
in any matter, being at the mercy
of the spinner and speculator en-
tirely. But with the formation of
this great cotton aassociation, he
will be able not only to dictate his
own price, but will be in position
as the growers of other farm prod-
ucts, viz: sugar-cane, wheat, to
bacco growers and all others, to
protect the interest of cotton in
every other manner.
Financial aid and assistance can
at all times be secured for the
handling of the staple, thereby en
abling the South to market all
during the year its great crep in-
stead of doing so within a few
months as has been the case.
Already the Southern Planters
Commission & Holding Company
has been formed at New Orleans
on account of the sanction received
by the Southern Cotton Associa-
tion. This company has perfected
arrangements whereby financial
aid to an unlimited extent will be
secured for the purpose of with-
holding two million bales of the
present crop from the market.
To be successful in the under-
taking, the co-operation and assist-
ance of the Southern Cotton Asso-
ciation is necessary; consequently,
it is to the interest of every plant-
er, whether he raises one bale or
5,000, to become a member of the

William Hacklin Hamilton.
After au illness of nine months,
William M. Hamilton died in this
city at 6 o'clock a. m. Wednesday
morning, February 15, 1905. At
time of his death he was 77 years
one month and 13 days old.
Mr. Hamiltan came to Greer
county in 1897, taking a home-
stead a few miles east of Mangum.
He was au old confederate soldier,
having served in the civil war as a
member of the 1st Alabama caval-
ry. After the war he moved to
Giles county, Tennessee, and nine
years later to Texas, where he
lived in Wise and Collin counties.
He had been married 52 years
and his widow, Mrs. Mary E. Ham-
ilton, survives him, with five sons
and daughters: J. H. Hamilton, of

th&t on the question the House by
previous action stands pledged to
statehood for four territories as two
states and the bill as it came back
from the Senate provided for mak-
ing two states of only three terri-

so instead of going to a conference
committee the bill went back to the
House committee on territories and
there it is now. Snugly ensconced
in a pigeon hole in the committee

J. B. Palmer, from out west of

office Monday and while here
launched a bolt at the merchants
of Granite, declaring he was ac-
corded better treatment and better

Palmer was sincere and positive in
his statement but we are just as
positive that he has in some man-
ner received a wrong impression.

Letter From Herring ft Young.
Euc City, OKLA., 2-10, '05.
Ed. Mangum Sun-Monitor:—
I am informed that your issue of
February 2 stated that the firm of
Herring & Young had failed for
forty thousand dollars and our loss
on cotton was thirty-five thousand.
This is untrue and calculated to do
us great harm. Herring & Young
are still doing business at same old
stands and will be the next time
you hear from us. Our assets will
pay every dollar we owe at twenty-
five cents on the dollar. Will have
to lose a larger sum than thirty-
flve thousand dollars to force us to
the wall. Will be prepared after
April the first to take care of all old
customers and such new ones as
come properly recommended.
Herring & Young,
Startling But True
People the world over were
horrified on learning of the burn-
ing of a Chicago theatre in which
nearly six hundred people lost
their lives, yet more than five
times this number, or over 3,000
people died from pneumonia in
Chicago during the same year,
with scarcely a passing notice.
Everyone of these cases of pneu-
monia resulted from a cold, and
could have been been prevented by
the timely use of Chamberlains
Cough Remedy. A great many
who had every reason to fear
pnemonia have warded it off by
the prompt use of this remedy.
