Washington, Special.-Eleven States,
Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida,
Mississippi, North Garolina, South Car
olina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia
and Virginia are represente fl by dele
gates to" the Southern Industrial Par

and Baltimore, who are interested in'
the objects for which the parliament
was called, which includes the exchange
of ideas regarding matters of impor
tance for the development of the
South. The feature of the day was the

Gov. Robert B. Glenn, of North Caro
lina, was 'unanimously elected presid
ing officer, and delivered the opening
address. At the outset of his remarks
he received applause by stating that
while he had come to Washington with
his heart filled with love for the sec
tion in which he lived, there were no
men living that loved, honored and re
vered "the great' Nation in which we
live more than the delegates who are
here today from South of the Mason
and Dixon line."
After drawing a pen picture of the
development of the country during the
last hundred years, Governor Glenn
touched upon the devastation wrought
In the South by the contest between .
the States, and said the people of that I
section had gone ahead with a will to
redeem, reclaim and build up. He
spoke of the enormous production of
cotton, iron, timber and other commo
dities in the South, and declared that
it had risen to the place where it ought
to stand-"equal, if not superior, to any
other section of the universe in which
wc live." But. he said, while the har
vest of the South was great the labor
ers were few. Laborers were needed
anywhere and everywhere, and he de
clared that the South held out oppor
tunities, and if they would come there
was no reason why they could not have
the same returns, the same wealth
and be even greater and grander than
In any other section of the- country.
But while men of brains and energy
were wanted, the South did not want

by the former secretary of war to be

Not the Work of Terrorists.
St. Petersburg, By Cable.-Though
no details of the assassination of
Prince Nakacidze, have been received
the impression here is that the outrage
was the work of the Armenian revo
lutionary committee in revenge for
the attitude taken by the prince dur-1
ing the racial war between Armenians j
and Tartars in February last, and it \
is not attributable to the Russian ter
rorists, even though the latter are ex
tremely active in many parts of the
empire. The Armenians laid the re
sponsibility of the deaths of those
slain in February at the door of Prince

Much Graft in New Orleans.
New Orleans, Special. - The
grand jury presented indictments
against two commanding officers ol'
the police department, in connection
with a sensational report of the exis
tence of corruption on a gra?d scale
in the police and detective depart
ments. The jury declares that lottery
shops and gambling exist with little
interruption on the part of the police,
and * that the Sunday law is openly
violated. These violations of the law
are possible, it declares, because the
police are in receipt of corrupt money
to permit them.
Questions Relating to
?lfare in Session
' In the South, the Governor said, the
negro is given every legal right he is
entitled to. Their children are edu
cated as are the white children; they
are given asylums for their deaf, dumb;
and blind, and are everywhere given
the merciful hand; "but," he said,
"there is one distinction, one line we
draw, and that is the line of social
equality," That, he proclaimed, could
never be. The races were separated by
the laws of eternity, because, he said,
the white man never was intended to
be put on a social-equality with the
negro. He appealed to every one pres
ent to make known the truth and thus
"correct any error and li?."
The Session Wednesday.
Washington, Special.-A discussion

Gustav H. Schwab, of New York, in
his address on the Subject of "For
eign Commerce and Ocean Transporta
tion," was the first speaker. He was
followed by Senator Simmons of
North Carolina, who spoke on the sub
ject of immigration. He said as a re
sult of the agricultural and industrial
activity and expansion in the South,
there was a demand for labor which
could not be supplied from its own
people, and that in consequence the
South was struggling with a labor fa
Nearly every section of the country,
he said, had claimed and obtained a
share of the enormous immigration to
the United States from abroad during
the last 25 4years. The failure of the
South to get a part of the new com
ers not only accounted for the present
labor famine in that section, but in
man/ other ways, he said, had been
disadvantageous to the United States.
The kind of labor the Scpith needed,
he said, was a debatable question. He
described the system of wages in the
South as being almost universally on
the share plan, and advised those ac
tually engage^ in efforts to induce emi
gration to the South from other sec
tions or from foreign countries to pre
sent that plan, and not be misled into

acres of land in Liberty and Franklin
counties, Fiorida, was closed Wednes
day. The purchasers are a syndicate
o? Chicago and St. Louis capitalists.
The closing of this deal, which has
been on for the past several weeks,
a majority of those interested have
been in Brunswick, means the build
ing of a railroad to Apalachicola, Fla.,
from St. Joseph, a distance of forty
miles. The road will then extend
northward 100 miles to Quincy, and it
is understood that it will then head for
Atlanta. The purchase also means
the settlement and building of a city

Mr. Spencer, in speaking of "unjust

apparent to common sense. There may

which is just, reasonable and impera

with which expert rate makers have 1o

discrimination might paralyze the in

THE fanning life of to-day, as

comfort and convenience. The

that of his city brother, for it is a sug

Ato the PaekerB Receiving Fair Play?
When the Garfield report on the
business methods of the packers ap
peared, after eight months' investiga
tion, it was severely criticised and
roundly denounced. After three months
of publicity it is significant that those
who attempted to discredit it have
failed to controvert the figures con
tained in that exhaustive document.
The public is beginning to notice this
omission, and tlje feeling is rapidly
growing that the sensational charges
out of which the "Beef Investigation"'
arose were without foundation. If the
official statements of the report ar.e
susceptible of contradiction, a good
many peop?e are now asking why thc
facts and figures are not furnished to
The truth seems to be that most of
the charges contain unfounded sensa
tional assertions; A flagrant example
of this appeared in a recent article "in
an Eastern magazine, to the effect that
"forty Iowa banks were forced to close
their doors in 1003-4 by tho Beef
Trust's manipulation of cattle prices."
Chief Clerk Cox, of the banking de
partment of the iowa State Auditor's
office, has tabulated tho list of banks
given in the magazine article and has
publicly denounced the statement as
utterly untrue, flo gives separately
tho reasons for each failure mentioned
and officially states that they have
been caused by unwise speculations and
by reckless banking methods. It may
be well to suspend judgment upon the
packers until the charges against them
