, and also, recommends an advance to the planters of two-thirds of the value of the cotton crop of the State
, on certain conditions.
He advices there-enactment of the stay law, and alludes to the unpatriotic speculations of some dealers in articles of prime necessity, and asks that authority may be vested in the Governor

paying such reasonable compensation as be fixed by competent valuing agents.
He recommends that the State
shall pay the war tax, and also that the State
