THE JACKSON RESOLUTION D1S.
( I SSEU AT ST. LOUIS.
Artlci of the Cotton Exchange of
This City-Its Sentiment Re
' eardlnr Varied Crops.
St. Louis RpubUcan: The wicked
ness cf dealing in cotton futures and
the necessity of Southern plunters
raising lees cotton and more articles of
food were the subjects which a meet
ing of the members of the Cotton Ex
change considered yesterday after
noon, adopting as their platform on
the two questions a resolution advis
ing the farmers to turn tbeir attention
to other aericultuial products besides
cotton and omitting advice as to cotton
The Interstate Agricultural Associa
tion, at its convention in Jackson, Fri
day, passed a series of resolutions,
tBkirg strong grouni against option
dealing and requesting Southern
legislatures to pass laws making such
transaction?, nnless tho cotton was
actually delivered, a felony, punisha
ble by a fine not less than 11000 and
imprisonment lor not less than two
years. The resolutions alto vigorous
ly urged the f irmers to stop crowding
the market with co'ton and bringing
down prices, sugecfting the cultiva
tion in its p'aceof Iioks, Lominy and
grains. Jetorue Hill yesterday morn
ing receivea a teiegiaui irom nie
Memphis house, saving that the Ex
change there would consider
that afternoon, and inking that the one
here do the same thing. Mr, Hill,
with nine other membeis of the Ex
change, called the meeting, which was
attended verv fully by the cotton
merchants. President John W.GiUe
son was in the chair, and Secretary O.
VV. Simmons read t'ue resolution of the
Tenneseeeans as soon as the meeting
wai called t order.
When the clause recommending
for cotton future dealers was read,
there was a general laugh, and Mr.
Hill was on bis feet immediately with
a motion and a speech. His motion
was that the resolution be referred to
a aommit .ee consisting of Thomas H.
West, cb airman ; W. K. McClintock,
George Taylor and G. Rosenberg for a
report, and his speech outlined the
kind of rsport the committee ought to
make. The part of the resolutions r
fBrrinc to cotton futures oueht to be
ignored entirely, as the exchange did
not wish to dittite H anybody or in
tsifarewith their right of dealing in
cotton futures or not just as they
pinned. But the exchange should ad
vise the people of the t'outh to raise
more diversified crops. They could
tot raise another crop at the prices at
which they had lo'.d their last, nor
could they raiee another crop at the
prices now upon the exchange beard
for aext year's cotton. Asbnyeisand
sellers of cotton, the members of the
St. Louis Exchange should advise
Southern planters to curtail Amr crop
of cotton and devote their attention to
Mr. West amended Mr. Hill's mo
tion by directing the chair to appoint
of five tj report npon the resolution,
and this amendment beinir. carried,
President Gilkeson appointed as the
comm t'ee Mr. Weft, Mr. McClintock,
Mr. Taylor, William B. Senter and
Gaorse B. Emmoai. The committee
retired, and returning submitted the
, TUK BEI'OBT.
Our st'ention having been called to
a resolution adoptt d by the Interstate
Agricultural Convention, late in sea
eion in Jackson, Tenn., in regard to
the overproduction of co'tin, and
feeling that their suggestions are well
timed and sensible, and if adopted
throughout the South will add greutly
to its prosperity,
We, therefore, recommend that the
exchange indorse that part of the reso
lution advising diversified crops.
"Piaot one-third less totton and more
grain and grasses. Raise hogs and
hominy, let cotton be a surplus crop
Instfad of producing 6.500,003 bales
make only 4,500,000 bales."
If tho low prices of this season shall
intluence the planters of the South to
aJopt these timely suggestiots, it will
be a g:id8cnd, and in our judgment a
new era o! prosperity will be the re
sult. We ako recommend that all the ex
changes take immediate action in in
dorsing this reto'ution and in echoing
these sentiments throughout the
length and breadth cf the South until
they shall be brought to the notice of
even the most humble planter.
The report v adopted and a mo
ti m to have 1000 copies cf it printed
for distribution was loft, although one
anxious member suggested that a con
tribution of a nickel apiece from tho3e
present would accomplish the object.
The meeting then adjourned.
Home of the members of the ex
change insinuats that this
SPA51 OP VIBTl't
which produced the resolutions is the
result of a squeeze in futures suffered
by seme of the Tennessee men. 'I
suppose you've read the Bible," said
President Gilkeeon, while talking
over this, "and yon know bow Solo
mon, after he got through with all his
fun and folly, Bettled down and said :
'All is vanity and vexation of spirit.'
Thnt'a abont the wav with these fel
lows. 'If they had been on the other
side, now, ana caugnt someooay in
stead of being caught, they'd be talk
ing another way."

The nnnsually large number of
Knights of the Green Cloth who, with
troubled faces, were fitting about
President Uadden'a headquarters yes
terday evening called forth a very nat
ural "inquiry as to the cause cf the
commotion, but nobody seemed
inclined to ta'k, thoagh it was
clear that there was something wrong.
President Hadden was not in a com
municative mood, and the knights
themselves were mum, but from an
outsider it was learned that an effort
was being made to make the
gamblers refund $1500 money lost
in wrestling with the tiger. As there
is no immediate proepect of a prose
cution and no one can be lound will
ing to assert a positive knowledge of
the facts, names cannot be given. It
ia slated, however, that s leading
front row house demanded a full set
tlement with one of its traveling men
last Saturday, his books not having
been balanced ap for soma years. A
shortegs of $1400 wes discovered and
"the innocenteat man on the road"
was told to come up to the captain's
office and settle. He promptly ac
knowledged bis inability to do
so and said he bad been gam
bling ever sine? lssj and bad
lost $1100 of tha amouLt in
one house and ia another. Tie
firm was nnwilling to prowcute ii the
money could be had, and applied to
President Hadden. He summored
the gambler, who admitted that the
drummer bad loit a little money in
the house, bat proved that he had
also lost heavily at privale poker
cames. He was loeer by that Re
ductive jrame to the extent of J J50 one
night last week. Nothing has yet been
done in the matter.

' St. Louis, March 1. Suit was filed
in the Circuit Conrt here Ute Satur
day evening ajainit the new St. Louis,
Kansas City and Colorado Railroad
Company by certain stockholders cf
the Forest Park and Central Railroad
Company to recover the franchise of
the latter company which was ac
quired by the former nnder an order
of sale made by the United Suites Dif
trict Court, and which, it is
alleged, wai secured by con
nivance and conspiracy. The petition
denies the jurisdiction cf the United
States Coarf, and asks that the con
veyance made by the United Stitea
Marshal be set aside and the cont'd
of the ForeBt Park and Central Com
pany be returned to its stockholders.
This franchise is of grnst vbIuh to the
St. Louis, Kansa? City and Co'ora'io
Company, as under it they obtain the
right of way into the city and to the
nn'on depot. Mr. Francis Tiernan,
president cf the St. Louis, Kansas
City and Colorado Company, in an in
terview denied the allegations in the
petition, and characterized the suit as
an attempt to impede work on his
rad, and said it would not succeed.
He further stated: ''Our bonds are
placed and we shall have our road
completed ti Creve Cccar, twenty
miles from here, in sixty days." This
road is attracting a good deal c f atten
tion, aa it will parallel aid become
competing line to the Missouri Pacific.
