bales of cotton for the members of
the association. The cotton was all
ofi the last year's crop and a uniiform
prce of 10 cents wvas obtained, any
offer 'md.er this being refused. Mr.
Ach-.: has recently beeni very active
in the marketing of the association
ctton, having sold during last and
this week 6140 bales at 10 cents per
pound, all of the cotton being taken
hv the local mills. Mr. Ar-cher esti
nates that there are still about 500
biles of last year's crop in the local
warehouses in the county. all of
which will probably go on the market
within a 'short time. In speaking of
the joint stock company whieh there
has been much talk of forming in
the. South'. Mr. Archer said that lie
could1( see nto use for it. If the com
panty was formied the stockholders
would want to make money, and the
result after a few yer w1ould( be the
same as from all oth'r similar move
ments. Mr. Archer stated that in his
opinion it was nothing more than
another hear movement. He stated
hat if the landholders wotuld agree
to withhold the crop from the market

In his speeches at Raleigh 'Mr.
Bryan did not introduce any new
argument. He prefaced his ren'arks
by saying that North Carolina had a
claim on him. It was this State, he
said, that came to him at Chicago
and gave him support when he needed
it. He declared that lie had always
been well received here. He admit
ted that North Carolinians do not
need to have Democracv preached to
them. He told his audience that he
wonld come to this State whenever
h.is services were needed in any cain
paign. "You have stood by me," said
he, "and I will stand by you. Some
of the originail Bryan men are North
Carolinians. Sometimes I think ]
waste my time when I come South.
You have so many men here who can
preach Democracy as I see it. There
are so many Democrats here who
long just for a chance to vote."'
Mr. Bryan took up Secretarp Les

North Carolina and answered certain
portions of them ini detaiL IHe de
lared that he was grat:ful to Mr.
Shaw for many things that lie had
said in this State. He claimed that
Mr. Shaw had palmed off an old
speech on North Carolinians. Iowa has
already rejected the doctrine that he*
advocated here. Secretary Shaw
is the high priest of the Republican
stnd-patters. He says that the Re
publicans have done all they should
have done. He sees no need of tariff
reform. In other States in New Eng
land, Iowa and elsewhere the Re
publicans want revision. Even Mr.
McKinley, just befo:, his death saw
that something had to be done. But
Secretary Shaw favors no change.''
