MB. HENRY NEILL AGAIN
"A very pretty controversy is
going on ju?t now between Mr.
Henry Neill, the famous cotton
expert of New Orleans, and Mr.
John Hyde, the ohief statistician
of the Government Department of
Agriculture. Mr. Neill is easily
the best known and most import
ant private cotton expert in the
country, and his views may be said
to be controlling upon the English
buyers of this staple. He has been
out for several months with a
prediction of another enormous
cotton crop, based chiefly upon
the favorable weather which, he
declares, the gt owing crop has re
ceived. The data of this character
and the general crop conditions
reported by the Government are
not nearly as favorable as that
given by Mr. Neill, although the
Government has made no definite
estimate of the crop, as Mr. Neill
has. A loDg letter hac been pub
lished, written by Mr. Hyde to a
firm of cotton merchante here,
controverting in detail Mr. Neill's
statements, chiefly those referring
to the amount of rainfall in the
cotton belt. To this Mr. Nell has
replied in a second proclamation.
People in the ?cotton trade are
naturally interested in the dispute.
If the crop turns out to be a short
one there will be a big rise in
prices, while if there is another
bumper crop prices will prices will
probably recede. From the fact
that the price of cotton has risen
decidedly already we infer that
general opinion of the trade leans
in Mr. Hyde's favor. Hyde re
ceives support also is the move
ment of the crop fro- ^he planta
Igrtsrties, it be?ng^ J.. '"'.<.;.- J:
f last year. On the" otb. ~" hand,
Mr. Neill and his friends maintain
that an immense quantity of cotton
has been picked and that the
Southern planters are holding it
back for more money. Some day,
they, say, cotton will come out
with a rush.
We feet that we may not im
properly allude at this time to
certain convidtions that we have
heretofore freely expressed con
cerning Mr. Neill and his pro
phecies. It is exceedingly unfor
tunate for aoy one business that
the views of any one man have
come to exercise a predominant
influence over its varione fluctua
tions and vicissitudes. We do
not think we exaggerate in stating
that such is the influence exercis
ed in the cotton trade by Mr.
Neill. In some way-which is
not altogether explained by the
fact that on several occasions Mr.
Neill has been very lucky in his
crop guesses-renormous weight is
attached to Mr. Neill's utterances.
When it is known that he is about
to issue a circular, the trade ii
cotton is quieted and rumors as to
the probable character of the
circular become thick as snow
flakes- If he predicts a small
crop there is an excited rush of
prices upwards, and if he predicts
a big crop there is a slump.
Millions of dollars hang upon his
words, and of course something be
sides mortification is felt when
these words prove to be mistakes.
Now, while we wish to state
most emphatically that we have
never heard a syllable spoken
against Mr. Neill's integrity and
that we believe him to be an
absolutely h jnest man, yet it ie
obvious that any such position HB
he occupies must be very uncom
fortable for an honest man to be
in. It certainly imposes upon
him strenuous obligations of re
ticence and extreme carefulness.
Indeed, one would think that Mr.
Neill would wish to stop issuing
crop estimates or would issue them
as rarely as possible and at such
late dates in the season that they

Tobacco Culture at Trenton.
DEAR ADVERTISES : The tobacco
farmers at Trenton have met with
disappointment, but it is their
own fault. They have made fine
tobacco, as good as has been made
in any section of the State, aod
yet, while others were getting
from 10 to 20 cents a pound for
tobacco, they have sold theirs for
two and a half cents. They, in
common with some fruit men,
have made the mistake of ship
ping to parties who were allowed
to put their own price on the
If a man had a horse for sale,
would he ship the horse to Char
lesion to a broker with instruc
tions to "grade" the horse, to sell
him to the highest bidder, to take
out his commission, and to remit
the balance? If any one were to
do that, his neighbors would pat
him down as a fool, yet that ie
about what some tobacco planters
The broker could grade a $150
horse, a fine driver, as a common
plug, worth about $35. He could
sell him at the latter price to a
secret partner who could sell him
at the higher price and they could
divide the difference, who can say
that that is not done sometimes
with fruit and tobacco?
The Trenton tobacco growers
should stop shipping their tobacco
to North Carolina and Virginia
parties who pay only two and a
half cents a pound. They should
rent a tobacco warehouse in which
to store thr;ir tobacco, and they
should invite buyers to come to
Trenton to lay in a stock for their
factories. It is in that way only
that the tobacco growers can get a
fair price for their tobacco. But,
as a matter of fad they need not
be dependent on outside buyers at
all. Why not manufacture Tren
ton tobacco here at home? The
men who grow the tobacco can
manufacture it and they need
go to very little expense. No plant
whatever I believe is required to
manufacture cigars, and the ma
chinery for making smoking to
bacco can probably be purchased
for less than $100-certainly for
less than $300.
There is a building near Ebe
nezer church which with little la
bor ould be fitted either for a to
bacco warehouse or a tobacco fac
tory, and perhaps it would answer
the purposes of both.
Let the Trenton tobacco grow
ers call a meeting and decide upon
apian of action. They could or
^anize^conipany with a capital I
?^?^Ci&V diviled into " ares cf j-:
$50 or $100 each. That Amount
would secure the lease of a sui ta
ble building and purchase all the
necessary machinery for the man
ufacture of cigars and smoking
If the people of Trenton wi
wakeup and do something this
town will soon become a tobacco
market, a manufacturing center

cent, and the contents of the Horn

It seems to be universally the
case that the old or middle age

mi?take ; how do you expect the
young people to patroDize some

Where is Best Assurance of True
There are two classes of people
that are antagonizing in their
imaginations. The country man
thinks if he lived in a city, life
would be so pleasant to him, while
the city man longs for a home io
the country where he can breathe
the pure air. raise his vegetables,
chickens, fruits, etc. One that
has tried both will agree that a
