ROUNDLAP BALES IN ENGLAND.
Hon. William C. Loverinjj's Demonstration ol
Three Cotton Bales Unrolling. Automatically.
Hon. William C. Lovoring has returned
from Europe whoro ho has been looking
after the interests of thc American Cot
ton Company. He found tho spinners
of England and tho Continent using tho
Koumllap Halo with tho greatest satis
faction. They are keenly alive to all the
money saving advantages of tho now
system. Tho case with which the bah;
is hand hal in transit anti at tho mill, de
lights them. The low cost of freight
and insurance, tho immunity from lire
in tho mill anti tho fact that there arc
no hoops, wires or metal of any kimi
used in baling are features that espe
cially appeal to the thrifty Kuropean
Mr. Lovering had the opportunity to
address a meeting of prominent cotton
manufacturers of Lancashire on the
merits of the Koumllap Lalo, and by the
courtesy of Messrs. Howard and Bul
lough, of Acorington, they wero invited
to witness a d?monstration of the run
ning of tinco bales of cotton directly on
tho apron of a scutcher. Nothing could
havo been moro perfect or absolutely
satisfactory than the working of the cot
ton in tins way. The. scutcher was
started with three bales upon tho apron
anti ran ol? at once without a hitch or in
terruption. The noise made by thc
boaters was a steady, deep anti healthful
hum, showing that thc machine was
doing its work without laboring in thc
least. The lap t hat was made was clean
anti oven running, weighing sixteen
ounces to tho yard.
Tho spinners took tim greatest, inter
est in the demonstration and with out;
accord expressed their complete satis
faction with tho operation. They saitl
that they saw in tho now system a great
revolution in cotton manufacturing.
They aro all anxious to buy the now
hale, and aro ready to give orders al
once. They wero surprised and gratified
to BOO that tho scutchor was an ordinary
scutcher, such as they were using in ail
their mills. Thoy batt been led to think
that it required special machinery for
tho purpose, whereas it only required a
little heavier apron to carry the bales or
laps, weighing two hundred and sixty
pounds cacii. ?

Gov. Tnnnor has ordorod two companies
of tho 4th regiment, under command of
Col. Bennett, to Cnrtorvillo. Ho re
ceived a telegram this afternoon from
Samuel Brush, manager of tho Ht. Louis
and Hig Muddy Coal Company, at Car
terville, that somo of his negro minors,
who had gathered ata depot preparatory
to leaving, had been killed, a mob having
tired upon them.
Tho Go vor nor gave out tho following
statement to-uighl: "t rocoived a mes
sage from Capt. Brush stating that tho
nod) had attacked and killed tho negro
minors whilo waiting at tho Illinois Con
trai depot for a train; that tho sheriff
would bo unablo lo control tho situation,
and was powerless to arrest tho parties;
asking mo to order troops to Carterville
"In response to this message, knowing
something of t ho condition of that placo,
and, without waiting to hear from tho
shoriff or others in authority, I immedi
ately ordered Liont. Lowden, of Com
pany C, of Carbondale, to proceed at
once to Cnrtorvillo, procuring a special
train if necessary, and when reaching
Cnrtorvillo to suppress the riot, protect
lifo and property, but report to tho She
riff of Williamson county for orders, in
tho event that tho sherill' was on tho
"1 also ordered Capt. Hersh, of New
ton, to proceed with his company by tho
quickest route, to Cnrtorvillo. At tho
same time 1 ordered Col. Bonnott, of tho
Ith rogimont, who lives at Greenville, to
proceed to Carterville at oncfc and take
charge of tho troops. I also directed tho
commanding officer of Company F, of
Mount Vernon, to proparo and bo in
readiness to leave on short notice.
"Later I received a message from Capt.
Brush slating that lator reports showed
that seven of Iiis mon were killed and
two injured, and that a largo mob of
armed men was between Carterville and
his mine, and that one company was not
"lt would seem that these negro min
ors were waiting at the depot for tho
train, probably expecting to leave tho
place temporarily or tinnily. It seems
to bo, from the brief facts reported and
the further fact that no ono was killed
except tho negroes, that it was a prear
ranged, preconcerted, premeditated
murder. If 1 am right in this conclu
sion the peoplo of Carterville, and espe
cially oi Williamson county, should uso
evory means possible, and that vigor
ously, to bring thoso parties, guilty of
this wholesale murder, to speedy justice,
and, in their efforts to do so, I promise
them the co-operation of tho State, thc
whole National Guard, if necessary, to
bring about the arrest and conviction of
these parties for thc restoration of peace
and good order in the county, and so 1
advised the sherill' of Williamson county
this afternoon by wi to.
"This is a blot on tho fair nanto of tho
Commonwealth of Illinois and will bo a
disgrace to tho community of William
son county unless quick and vigorous
action is taken by tho county authori
ties. The good and law-abiding citizens
of Williamson county should rise to tho
situation and support tho law officors in
restoring peace and order and in tho ar
rest and conviction of tho guilty parties.
"I hopo that tho Now to? company will
reach Carterville before morning and bo
fore any con Riot occurs, but I do not be
lieve and shall not bolievo until it hap
pons that the strikers will attack tho
National (?iiard or attempt lo oppose it
in doing its duty."
Lato to-night Gov. Tanner received a
telegram from Short g (.ray, at. Carter
ville stating that the situation is critical
and that tho military company is not
sufficient to disperso tho mob. (Jov.
Tanner wired other military companies
to hasten to tho scone.
