Secretary Hester's (New Orleans
cotton exchange) annual report
was issued today in full. He puts
the cotton crop of 1898-99 at
11,274,840 bales, an increase of
74,846 over 1897-98, and says that
while Texas, including the Indian
Territory, shows an excess of 80,
000 bales and the group of Atlantic
states, consisting of Alebama,
Geogia, Florda, South Carolina,
Kentucky and Virginia, increased
only 9,000 bales the group of the
other gulf states, consisting of

South Carolina has reason to be
proud of the showing her cotton
manufacturing makes in Secretary
Hester's report for the year just
ended. Not only does she still
lead the southern States in this
industry but she increases her lead.
Her mills consumed 61,501 bales
more than those of4North Carolina
and 172,171 more than those of
Geogia. They increased their con
t sumption 16,148 bales more than
bales more than North Carolina's
and 52,634 more than Georgia's.
They worked up 31.7 per cent, of
all the cotton going to southern
mills. Notwithstanding the fact
that the rest of the south gained
10.8 per cent, in cotton consump
tion during the year South Carolina
greatly excelled it, with a increase
of 17.4 per cent. Of the south's
incised consumption during the
year this State furnished 38.7 per
cent. And the best of it is that
the increase continues, assuring a
?till great supremacy for the
smallest State in the south, leader
of all the rest.-Columbia State.

AFLOAT ON A BATT
WITH A MANIAC.
One of tlie Survivors Tells of
Casting: Lots and Sucking the
Blood of One Companion.
Charleston, S. C., Sept. 22.-The
British steamer Woodruff, Captain
Milburn, arrived from Hamburg
today. August 31, two hundred
h nd fifty mil es south of Charleston
the Woodruff picked up Maurice
Anderson and Goodmund Thoma?
sen, survivors of the survivors of
of the Norwegian bark Drot, wreck
ed August 15, off the Florida coast.
The Drot was bound from Pasca
goula to BuenoB Ayres. Anderson
is a raving maniac and his com
panion is shockingly mutilated
bites of tho crazed man. Thoma
Ben tells a dreadful story. The
captain of the Drot and seven
seamen were swept overboard and
lost in the recent West Indian
hurricane. The mate and seven
other men put to sea on a raft made
from decking. The raft parted
soon after, and the mate and one
man were separated from the
others. The mate's companion
was landed at Philadelphia ty the
German steamer Titania on
August 22. He stated that the
mate committed suicide. Of the
six men on the other part of the
raft one became crazed from ex
posure and jumped into the sea.
Two others exhausted from suffer
ing fell overboard and were lost.
Anderson, Thomasen and a German
seaman, drew lots as to which one
would be eaten, as none of them
had had a mouthful since they
took to the raft. The lot fell to
the German. He was killed and
the blood was sucked from his
veins by the two ; survivors.
Soon after Anderson lost his
reason and savagely attacked his
only companion. Thomasen's
breast and face were bitten in
j several places, chunks of good size,
being torn out.
Both men are now at the city
hospital and the Norwegian con
sul has taken the case in hand.
Thomasen is a nativejof Stevauger,
