TOE MEMPHIS APPEAL: TUESDAY. JUNE 4. 1889;
COTTON VERSUS JUTE.
A CARKrUl. CONSIDERATION OF THB
Why It la the More Advisable to 0
Cotton Bag-gdng- The Fact and Fig
ure of th Cab Carefully Sat Forth
by a BtudanL
From Hi National Keonnmlst.
Tlic cotton planters of America, ropre
stnUnl by delegates from tliuir organ 'na
tions, mot in the city of lliruiintriiam,
Ala., on the 15th ultimo, and aftor care
fully discussing tlio advantage and disad
vantngoa of aubstituliug cotton for jnlea
the subatauce from which tho . rniilnir.
for bulos of cotton it to bo manufactured,
they decided by a iinmiiiiiotis voto in favor
of tho adoption of such substitute for a
permanent covering, aud m a coiisoijupiico
they have gone to work in earnest to Inau
gurate the use of tho Substitute.
It Is probable that tho prow of tho coun
try will now toom with argument repro
m uting all aidea and views of thin ques
tion: and should the decision niado at
lUrininghaiu prove to have been wisely
tuado, and thcroforo lajmbla of standing
tho test of the most thorough analysis, it
will soon bo demonstrated, l'.ut it will not
do for partisans on the subject to inlrodueo
the argument by saying that the "farmers
are a lot of fools;" "that tho profit
on jute bagging will bo completely
lost by tho substitution of cotton:" "that
It will entail a great loa to wuip with
cotton:" "that a sufficient amount of
tho cotton substitute can not bo ohuino.l;"
"that there Is an setual prolit on thejuto
bniwinii to the planter, or "that jme ts
ttiu better material for tlm purpose," and
a dozen more hackneyed assertions that
aiuiply express tlm snliuiun:s o( those
prcm-miiia- them. Tim fanner at binning

hipping to Liverpool there is Iruithl
to be paid, also liisiirsnce, commit.
ion, and a tare for baclinr, tiis and dirt.
These all attach a espeum. and are de
ducted from the gross proceeds to give the
net or A nierican price. The tare lor bag
Clog aud tie is variously rtiuisted; soma
claim thst they Isk oil the baling ami
tie and weigh the net cotton; otheia tliul
the tie are taken off and waitfli"d actual,
ami that Uie backing I estimated at six
teen, pouuds aud dirt four pounds; other
that lbs take a la-e of mt cent, or
about an avorugo ol thirty pounds per
balo. The latter systom is probably al
most the universal custom, and for tho
purpose ot this examination the tare will
be calculated at thirty pounds per bale, as
is tho custom la estimation American quo
tations. The ties actually weigh about
tea pounds, and as we have seen the bag
ging averages ten and a hall pounds, tho
allowance of tho four pounds claimed fur
dirt brines tho total ui to twentv-four and
a half aud leaves the balanco of five and a
half uouuda to represent loose cotton that
sticks to the roiiirh' bnszins when it
is removed. Of oourso that is entirely
too much, an probably not over a pound
or two does actually so stick to tho bag
ging, but it is very troublesome in that par
ticular. Binoe, thou, a tare reiiresetiiing
tho full amount of tho weight of tho bag
ging and tics, and about 1 per cent of tho
cotton is deducted in the Liverpool mar
ket, and since the Liverpool market llxus
and regulates tho quotations of all other
markets, American ss woll as foreign, let
no man bo deceived by tho assertions of
supertlcial reasons who claim that no taro
Is taken on tlio American market, iqu
taro U allowed for in the a notations of
prices, and, therefore, Is never avoided by
a single balo. Ami since it represents all
the bagging and the ties and 1 per cent, of
tho cotton, there is exactly that much ab
solute loss that must ho charged to the ex-
I anise account, lo Illustrate: suppose a
uile of cotton sold weiizliina 5201 pounds;
at 8 ceuts per pound there are 500 pounds
nt cotton, bringing f-to, and zuj potiiKi ui
bagging aud tma, briuging f 1.04, making a
lotiil of J11.G4. It would seem that the
bagging and ties, which cost piobuhly HO
centK, bad been sold for 74 cent prolit,
but it should bo reniemliered that 8 cents
as the price is based on the I jiglish tare, anil
without that would bfl thirty pounds, at 8
cents, moro on tho bulu, or $'J.40, being
aliout HJ ceuts kt pound. Now what is
the diflercnco between paying th KJ cents
and deducting the uire, or paying 8 cents
and pretending not toT
Tho bagning mailn from cotton Is much
lighter and is of uniform weigiiU This is
an advantage, becausn tho weight being
always tho same it can bo accurately osti
niato'd; whereas, Juto Ixung of dilierent
weights, thu tare, as alxv shown, is biwed
on iieavier weights, Tho cotton weigha
three fourths ol a pound, and if tho ssiuo

JUDOS DUBOSB WILL PASS ON A
LARQB NOMBEB THIS WEEK.
To Late Law Compel the Judge to
Ezamtn All Warrant and Disallow
When Founded Dpon Mistaken Legal
Tho Magistrates' warrants are to bo ex
amined this week by Judge Dulkwe and
Attorney -General Peters.
These documents have' been a thorn in
the sido of county affairs tor some timo
aud their examination and overhauling is
usually attcudod with considerable inter
est on the purt of tho conscript fathers.
Some of tho Magistrates say tboy do not
care what Judge DuUoso does with tboir
warrunts;if they are not correct and should
uot bo allowed, they do not want or ex
pect them to be; others claim to under
stand tho law and the prophoU as well as
Judgo Dulloac, and that if lie will only
permit an appeal frotu bis adverse duel'
sions they will bo satisfied. There aro
others who aro noithor so courageous or
coiilldunt, and are fearful that a mulll
plicity of warrants may excite suspicion.
It is claimed that in some of the Magis
trates' Courts a suitor who comes in for
tho purpose of bringing a suit or prosecut
ing an offender is seized upon as a nu
cleut around which a mas ot litigation is
gnthered. Jones swears out a warrant
against llrown and brings the latter into
court llrown is then induced to swear
out a counter warrant aguinst Jones, who
in turn swear out a second warrant
and so on, ad inllnittim. Thus the
'Npuro business bus become most pros
perous. to much so, indeed, that bar'
venter from distant lields are coining in
to sharo in tho bounteous crop a nloaners.
This bus gone so far that in one instance a
require from Mississippi is said to have
thrown off the ormino in that State and
couio hero to servo in tho capacity of con
slahlo or sheriff, tint the papers aie
turned out with such iwlonishinir rapidity
and iu such profusion that tho officer
cannot servo them ami hungera-on around
thesn teninle of ustice luck ut nuito a
nice livinu by aclinir as siiecial officers
for tho service of wriu. It is claimed,
loo, that theso improvised motenirers of
justice aro experts at digging tin case. If
a darkoy slap another ono, there is, then
and thcrn, a grouud work lor half-a-dozcu
suit at least.
Then the law which authorises any ono
to practice as a lawyer iu a Justice's Court
by simply oliiuining a ccrtilical of char
acter Irom the County Court the only
character thoy havo in aomo instances is
charged with being freighted with baneful
results, as the doors are oHned to those
who havo no qualms ol conscience about
prai'ticinu barratry, and whoso only code
ol moral is tho criminal codo ot tho Hule.
Justly or unjustly, richt or wronif. these
opinions are liuld and lieely exnressed by
a rcaiH-ctHhlo number of citizens who.
li.lo tliey aro auxious lo see every Mams
Irate receive In just due, aud who be
lieve thai the majority of MaiMlrntua will

sympathy with Juilira Dulkwo in hi ol

rance or cupidity ol tlio people, II any such
exists, for which the community ts taxed

That creater scrutiny will characterize
the examination of vouchers iu the Intiire
is certain. The late law on the auliject ia
uot merely declaratory but mandatory.

Chapter 13!), Poction 1. He ft enacted
by thu (ieiieral Aswinhly of the Mate of
