PEKITKKTI4RY Of. VICT.
It in stated that the Knights of L
bor will soon ordsr a eimullaneous
bovcntt of every firm in the United
(JUtes which employs prison labor or
in any way touch and bardie the un
clean work o? penitentiary convict!
This movement is not t- be at plored,
for while the labor problem is an iBsne
which cannot be shirked, and must be
settled in all its various ramitlc
tions, it is meet and proper that the
prison labor question be alto ad
lusted. The movement against the
use of piisoa labor In the manufac
ture of articles which place murderers
nd thieves in competition with boa
est, law-abiding citizens is nolther
novel nor recent. On this question,
however, there is but little division as
to Diiblic sentiment. All daises t ra
agreed that prison labor should be em
ployed at work which in no way con
flicts with free labor. Hat the trouble
is to perform labor within prison walls
that does not conflict with onteide
lalnr. All tho prison trades
are practiced outside, and in every
branch of industry prison labor
coniss in competition with free labor.
The theory of making prisons a sonrco
of revenue to the St rite, or at leatt self
sustaining, had no force fifty years
ago, when the States were gradually
adopting the penitentiary system. The
object was restraint and ref irm, not to
establish a source of revenue. Prison
labor outside of the walls, in the
mines, on the railroads, produces a
revolt among honest men wbcmi wages
re reduced by the competition of con
victs. What, then, can be done with
prison labor? In the cotton States it
has been proposed to colonUe the con
victs on plantations owned by the
States, and to employ them in the pro
duction of cotton. There Is another
kind of work which free labor detests,
nd which prison labor can perform
without detriment to honest toil or
danger of the boycott. We allude to
the construction and repair of the
common county roads. Then, why
not put prison labor at ench vfo'rk?
The roads of continental Europe,
' which are praised by travelers,
were built by utilising the
labor of ' prisoners. If con
victs cannot be used manufacturing,
nd those engaged in the sale of prison
scares are to be boycotted, there is no
al'erra'.ive left but to put the convicts
on the public roads. With such oppo
sition to convict labor and its products
boycotted there is left no indoor trade
Kcad work is the only avenue by
which convict labor can esrape the
wrath of honrot men. Good raJ
would be woith mora to the people
than the tax paid to support the con
enld be -asde to single out tne pro
truding cotton and aprroptiits that
'one from the plant The fibrous lint
would penetrate crevices tiom which
substances of cthir fcrms are ex
cluded, therefore it ws necessary to
place aomething within crevices tnai
would catch and pull away the lint by
seising the projecting fibers. The re
salt was the prolutt on of a cr-tton
picker in 1883 that difftred fiom its
numerous predecessors by picking
cot'.on lint, and nothing else, from the
plai.t. This mai a great advance, but
when ao much was accomplished the
litigation that usually beteta the in
ventor suspended public operations
for two yeani, and it waa commonly
supported that the Mason picker bad
gooe the way of all the rest. The
Biwitae informs us, however, that the
mi's have terminated favorably, and
the shop docri are sgfiu open.
In the interim Mr. Mason has
been perfecting the application cf
his tew plan by which flbtr
is seizsd and continnoui surfaces re
jected. The teeth are pla :ed within
cylinder cf corrugated sheet brass; at
the apex of the corruptions, whrss
pre j actions being perfectly smooth,
as the teeth move Jutt below the ear
face penetrate where the fiber is and
seizs and withdraw it. These cylin
ders are arranged in projecting stems
eight ii ches long by an inch and
quarter diametw, sixty of them in
each machine. They are arranged to
as to pioject from main central cyl
inder, each revolving upon its own
axle as the whole are carried round by
the main cylinder. This cylinder
worts upright within framework that
contains two of them, and the neces
sary gearing. The whole is little
less than five feet wide and weighs
under 300 pounds. One mule draws
the machine; the shaft are on one
side of it, while itself straddles the
row. Two openings, each four feet
high andeach containing a main cylin
der with ita revolving corrugated pick
ers, firm two bottomless box. These
are in front.and the two boxes catch the
standing plant within them, the stem
pickers entor every poition of the
plants, extract the lint which is
thrown back, carried up by an elevator,
and deposited in impended sack.
One wheel of the carriage part works
the pickers, the other the elevators.
The driver sits on the top ; the wheels
are not in the way of the plants, and
the whole !s light enough for one ani
mal to d'aw readily. Within the two
and half feet diameter of the boxes
the plant is loosely massed together,
the revolving items penetrate it, the
bass of each item catching the plant
before its top, every portion is rifled
by the active little fingers beneath the
angles of the corrugated cylinder, the
motion is then reversed by seg
mental wheel; this throws the cotton
from the needle points, the elevators
receive it and carry it to the
bag. The nianagers of the con
cern do not "blow" the pick-
they rely ' npon it when sold

THE MALLOY-LEE TRIAL.
LORD Y'S BADTEMPER
HIM QUARREL WITH THE
MR. 8.1 ITU.
A Silly Duel Between Women
Htavy blamocd Robbery at Lon
Some weeks ago tli9 Aitkal awkel
how it is that piotcction does not pro
tsct, prohibition does not prohibit, and
cotton pickers d not p'ek. Upon tbo
lattur question sunie interesting Infor
mation is given in an article in the
fiottthfrn llimuac for April. We are
there Informed that from the year 1850
to the present time patente have been
leaued for 103 devices to pick cotton,
and yet busy negro fingers are, aa from
the beginning, doing the work. The
article gives an account, with illustra
. tions, of several of these, among oto
eia of the picker patented by oar
Memphis citizens, Rsmbert A Preecott,
in September, 1850. It was cum
brous arTu'r, weighing over a ton, and
has aa yet filled no bale with machine
picked cotton. In 1801 tlennell Steph
ens of Memphis patented "sulky
picker," which was no more success
ful. Not only Sonthernera, but many
Northerners tried their inventive pow
ers npon the cotton-picking problem
without even an approach toward sue
cers. These inventions rarely in
volved anything new in principle or
in combination, and planters had be
come diggasted with tin very name of
machine cotton-pickers nntil the
picker of Chas. T. Mason of Sumter,
8. C, arrested attention by the novelty
nd ingenuity by which it presented
real title to notice. Mr. Maron is an
adept In mechanics, and bai bad a
varied practical experience among
cotton-gins as well as other machinery,
and his attention naturally became
turned toward the much needed cotton-picker.
Studying existing inven
tions and the causes of their failure,
he discovered that what was required
waa something tht could discriminate
between the lint of the cotton plant
and tho stalk, leaves, bloom, squares,
bolls and everything else, and extract
k. "Teavln 3 the rest nniujurtd.
discrimination appeared to de
k Lead to direct it, but Mason
phantly proved that machinery J
nd in the field to be its own pub
lisher of Ita own claims. Thirty
thousand dollars baa been spent in
the factory, machinery, etc., f (5001 of
whjclj. Went for patents in India,
Kjypt, Brazil, and other cotton-pro
ducing countries. For three seasons
Mr. Mason has picked bia own crop
with the picker at coat of little
over $1 a bale, where hand-picking
would be $7 50 a bale. The simplicity
and strength of the part prevent get
ting out of order, and like the grain
rasper, the picker cannot work among
projecting rocks or stumps. More or
fewer revolving stems can be put in,
above or below, ta the crop is top crop
or bottom crop. 1 1 is claimed that wet
or dry, or in any other condition, the
plant, with the blooms or squares or
leaves or stems, is never injured, as
nothing rubs or scratches or tears it.
The stems enter the plint as the hu
man hand does, takes off the lint and
withdraws, injuring nothing any more
than a hand does. There is great cu
rio lity to see the Mason picker when
Lomdok, March 2$. The rumor that
a quarrel txiitrd between Lord Ron
dclph Cbuichill and Hon. Wm. M
Smith, both of wtoaa were members
ol Lord Salebnry, is confirmed. The
quarrel ia seriour.and is both pereonfcl
and political. It originated in a
speech made by Mr. Smith, in which
he spoke in favor of Mr. Gladstone's
scheme for buying ont the landlords
of Ireland and urged a fiir support of

TIT FOB TAT.
The Senate in its attack upon the
President, demanding that papers be
longing to the executive branch
should be handed over to themselves
of the legislative branch of govern
ment, gave blow that bas reacted
upon themselves. Their action bas
strongly called the attention of the
country to their own private doings.
They hold secret sessions at frequent
intervals, and in them occur the sort
of abuses which creep in where the
publio eye is excluded. These secret
proceedings are unpopular; the people
regard them with disapprobation.
The opposition to private acts by
publio body has found
rallying point in the
following resolution offered in the
Senate Monday by Senator Logan
uRrolvtd, That the sessions of the Sen
ate commonly known as executive
sessions, so far as they apply to norm
nations, confirmations or rejections,
nan nereaiter do neid with open
doors, and that public record of
the same shall be kept, the same as of
legislative sessions." The public will
watch the vote uponthia resolution
as it will show who of the Senator
are aaxlous to retain the legislative
jobbery perpetrated in legal sessions,

bell od District-Attorney Brantley
prtseot. To-day was made special
day for the investigation of tbe riot on
the 17th instant at Carrollton, and 150
witnessea were summoned in tbe mat
ter, but from the ahr; stay each
made in the gran I jury room, it
teema probible that information
was obtained and tbe opinion ia ex
pressed that after thorough and
searching investigation no clue to the
armed force of week ago can be
found. The Judge gave the Grand
Jury a very emphatic charge to look
into the matter, and District-Attorney
Brantley ia said to be seeking informa
tion from every source, but the hurry
and excitement of that day were such
as t-i preclude all Identification.
