New York Daily Indicator: The
local strikes for the pant week or two
nave oeen given a aiB.niur.ance m con
nettle a with tbe stock market which
is not consistent with either the facts
or our experience. It has been as
sumed that the labor disputes are an
indication ef depressed business, and
a justification of falling values, but
they indicate and 'Jnstifv nothing of
the sort. ' In Juiv, 1877, was exper
ienced a series of labor ' strikes and
rio i more fatal to the country than
any we have ever had either btfore or
alnce. They involved even bloodshed,
and for a time hesitation and fear had
a p'ce in nearly every heart. The
rilthnrg railroad riots will long be
remnn b ired ai a terrible aflat. De-spi-
the general alarm, aod there was
eufficK-ot canse for it, the stock mar
ket '.'eti moving upward, and tbe
bean wf,j tried to make money out of
tbe eon try's perils suflered serious
low".. To show the course of the
atock market in that memorable
mon;h, when it loiked for a time m if
there would be almost another civil
war, wa ive below the opening and
cloaing prices of the most active
et-cka traded for in the month of July,
1877, and the increa-e for tbe month,
The prices are as follows:

i Here are twenty Blocks, embracing
all of the principal etocks dealt in at
the Sto;k Exchange in July, 1S77,
which show an average increase of 5J
jer cent, in a month, when labor was
attacking capital, and armed troops
were Bung upoa workmen. Only one
cf the twenty stocks hiled to show a
net increase for tbe month, and that
flock cloied exactly as it opened,
l'bo advances ranged from 1 J to 13 per
cent., the Western Union recording
tbe largest increase, while Delaware
and Uudcon giined 11 per cent.
That tbe average market value of
theee ftjeks should increase from 44J
A to 4!) per cent in times of such dis
turbances as tbo3e experienced in
'July, 1877, maybe considered remark
able, but investors relied upon the ul
timate aupremacy of law and order,
and refused to be frightened int)
, gelling their property.
The present situation, ia diflerent,
however, irom that of 1877, for then
labor was striking against a reduction
in wages, imfr it is demanding an ad
vance. It is also a fact that labor oc
:upiee a much more defanoitle poei
ion tbaa it did nine years ago. Its
leaiands are more temperate in tsne,
lairer in spirit and less epen to public
rrit cim. We do not believe that the
Southwestern t trikes can be justified,
ut, at least, there bm not yet been a
snort t) the outrages that were com
a.t'ed at 1'itlt.hurg in 877. But, even

Knights of Labor having boycotted a
number of firms in tbe city because
they buy boxes from Maiwell Broth

how the firms which have been put
on the list felt about the matter. The
result of the investigation shows that

Toth Edittrt oftfct Appeal i
Hblina, Abk., March 18. From
timo ti time in tbe late issues of your
worthy paper I have read many and
various theories and speculations as to
the better or best mods to pursue in
regard to the amount of land that
should bs cultivated in cotton in order
that the cotton farmer or planter may
realize remunerative prices for his
product and get out cf and keep out
of debt. I can't conceive but oneway
for it to be done, as those who are in
debt to the merchant or cotton factor
for advances cannot quit planting cot
ton, as, if they do, deeds in trust and
ill liens would be foreclosed by the
creditor. Consequently, the once cotton-grower
would be left in bank
ruptcy, now for the remedy. Let all
thoe who follow tbe cultivation of
the soil for a livelihood in the cotton
belt, who may reasonably be out of
debt, ceN8 entirely to grow cotton
and devote their time and attention to
tbe culture and growing of grasses,
grain and cereals, and tbe breeding
and improving and increase of stock
of every kind whatsoever, and sell
same at remunerative prices to the
man who has no alternative but
to plant cotton in order that
he, too, may get a better
price for bis cotton and bs
released from the yoke of the ad
vancer. Tken when the farmer or
planter ia out of debt borrow no more
money, for the cotton producer in the
South ever since the surrender has not
been able to borrow money with safety
to himself, nor will he be, on account
of the demoralixation of ths labor, its
inefficiency, its proneness to break up
contracts and to play tha truaut and
the wanderer. And one great material
cause of the preeent states is that from
the time he begins to turn tbe soil for
another crop he retrospects and sees
the prices obtained for cotton in the
last few years ; therefore begins with
his energy paralyzed, with no incentive
to toil and sweat, for he knows the
result, fudging from the past, that
sranty clothing and a bare living stare
him in the face at every exertion.
And I cannot say the planter is not
culpable to some extent for tbis, for
jut in proportion as low prices
obtain for cotton, just in that
proportion will lie, as a general
thing, bear down and oppress the
laborer in wigee, and tbe higher prices
will he charge for all supplies and
favors extended, in order that be may
in the end meet his own liabilities and
if possible steer clear of debt the fol
lowing year. He who is out of debt
and plants cotton the preeent year
will be sicker than when he let go the
present crop; for, if unfortunately, a
larger crop should be grown this year
than last and in all probability there
will be be will be much aicker I
opine than when he sold the last; and
if celf-castigation would recall and
remedy the put, he would moet cer
tainly "lay on Macduff." So every
man who is not compelled to plant
cotton to be released from his credi
tors the present year had beet throw
up the sponge now filled with un
wholesome carnage to overflowing
from financial bruises, and let every
vestige oi a cotton mania ocze there
from in order that his pillow may be
softer and his sleep more beatific in
the future. 8ucb a course will nave a
tendency to induce immigration into
the cotton-belt section and more
readily induce them to pur
chase our lands at higher
prices, as, if set in grasses
and they behold our garners laden
with the various cereals, and our
flocks and herds returning borne at
the gloaming, their music more sonor
ous and welcome than to those who, in
the olden time, fed their flocks and
listened to the lowing ot their herds
upon the plains of Judea such, I
say, would be more in accord with
their education and tastes, and some
thing they could easily and knowingly
engage at with a view to success and
prosperity; while, on the other hand,
the immigrant will soon turn with
loathing and distrust from a countrv
that is nothing but one continued cot
ton patch. A cotton field with a full
matured crop is lovely yea, beauti
fulto behold, but when it is your
all, aud gathered, sold and ended, and
you apply tbe credits to your purs,
the result will be worse than Dead
Kh fruit when placed to the lips.
Whereas, if our crops are interspersed
and diversified with the essentials that
perfect the election of a complete
farmer, and which constitute the suc
cess of a country in an agricultutal
sense, prosperity then weuld be as
sured, and we could reasonably in
dulge the hope that we soon would
have thrifty immigration and better
prices for our lands. h. c.

Wasukiotok, March 17. TheSn
ate C'nmmhtee on the Ktpenditurfs
ot l'utinc Honeys continued its in
vett'gation of tbe charges made by
UornmisMoner Uiack with regard to
the official acta of bis predecessor?,
Cotnmitffiinner Biack again occupied
tne witness eta r.
Senator Harriaon read from tbe
recoids cf the last meeting a qnes
tion which he then addressed t tbe
commissimer, asking wbttber be
could produce the names and nam
bers in any e'aims wtich had bren
allowed or rejected by bis predec
sore on account ot the politics of the
claimant. He asked if the commis
sioner was now able to give ths in
Commissioner Black "I am not
prepared this morning, Mr. Senatjr,
ti give those numbers.

I he oommittea a nnmber of case, but
1 have been very much engtged, not
only with current business of tbe
ofMoe, bnt the preparation of the data
relatiag to the direct line ef the inves
tigation penned at the last meeting,
and have not thoroughly prepared
myself to present the cases of which
yoa speak. I have to much material
on band, and to much was called for,
that I thought tbe whole et this ses
sion would probably be taken up in
completing that line of investigation
instituted at the first meeting relating
to the operations of the office.
A spirited but courteons colloquy
ensued between Hanator Harrison and
Comn iseiooer Blank.
Tbe Senator called attention to the
fact that the inquiry which be had re
peated to-day v.as tbe hint one asked
at tbe former meeting, and as it was
Daeeu on the pait cf the Commission
er's report which bad given the to the
investigation, it was the moat import
ant matter to be considered. He re
peated his u neat ion in various forms.
asking if the Commissioner was able to
give the cimmiltoe the name or num
ber of any single claim which had been
allowed or rejected on account of the
politics of the claimant, whether the
Commirsioner had anv such case or
cases in mind when be wrote bis re
port; whether he bed examined the
files in any case, and if so bow many,
to ascertain whether the allegations in
bis report wore justified.
The Commissioner replied in sub
stance that he would be able to give
the committee abundance of evidence
in support ot the allegations made in
bis report, but he preferred to do it
from the files of the offices. Informa
tion had come to him from a great
number of sources from affidavits
made by claimants, which had gone
into the' files of the office, and other
wise which bad led him to the con
clusions stated in bis report. . He had
examined the files to a certain extent,
but be had gathered a general knowl
edge on theaubject from other sources.
The committee adjourned to meet
at 8 o'clock to-morrow evening.
