Tho Colton Situation.
"What aro wo going to do if you mill
men take all tho cotton?1 ' asked n Ho
portor for Tho Nowa and Courier of
Capt. William A. Courtenay, of tho
Nowry Cotton Mills, yesterday. Capt.
CcurV".iay is not only ono of tho most
prominent of tho South Carolina manu
facturers, but ho is woll known boro as a
buainoss niau of keon foresight, and ono
who weighs woll bis words.
"Thoro is no question in my mind," he
said, "but that within a very fow years
tho cotton mills of South Carolina will
consume, ovory halo of cotton produced
In tho Stato. And what must Charleston
do ? Sho must turn hor eyes Westward
and tako a hand in tho enormous export
trado from that section of tho country.
Charleston must mako a strong bid for
tho grain shipments that are now going
around by somo loss direct route. Tho
v^port business of this city must look
for something besides cotton to sustain
On tho oxohnnges yesterday tho fool
ing was decidedly bluo. So far ns the
brokors and exporters wore ooncorned
them was almost nothing in Bight. "Wo
oro offering sovou cents all ovor tho inte
rior, but what docs that avail us whoo thc
mills in nomo section.; arc payiug 71?"
said a representativo of alargo exhorting
firm. "Just think of it, wo aro ready to
pay tho prico quoted in tho Now York
futuro market for January and Decem
ber deliveries. Tho report of tho crop
estimate from tho United States agricul
tural bureau received to-day gives tho
oouditions at 62.4 as compared with (JS.r>
last mouth. This dato last year the esti
mate was 75.4, for 1807 it was 70, and in
ISM) it wns 00.7. But as an indication of
how little this report is credited the mar
ket scarcely moved a point. January was
on tho Now York futuro market at
firstname.lastname@example.org, and after tho roport of tho
bureau had been published it was 7.00.
December opened email@example.com, and lingered
voryncar tho seven mark. The Liver
pool market was unchanged."
Thoro aro oight big steamers loading or
ready to load at this port, four by thc
Charleston Transport Lino and four by
tho Johnston Blue Cross Line. So far
Charleston has had no demurrage lo pay
and tho steamship mon hopo to escape
BUOh a contingency. With receipts like
yostorday's, however, it would seem
that tho evil might only ho postponed.
Tho railroads brought in 1,7^7 bales,
ogoinst 4,-180 bales this dato last year.
Tho receipts to dato aro 08,005 and to
this dato last year 80,077. The dift'er
onco in crop conditions make this dis
parity even moro notable.
"Tho Southern Railway is not helping
this port in tho matter of cotton re
ceipts," said a cotton man yesterday.
"Not that I mean to imply any wrong
dealing or anything that tho Southern
can avoid. It is just this way, you see,
tho Southorn owns roads all over thc
Stato and is obliged to make its through
ratos according to the rules of tho rail
road commission!. In consequence of
this tho mills buy cotton right at Char
leston's gateway and can alloid to pay
tho straight haul, whereas, when tho
South Carolina and Georgia was an in
dependent lino, they couldn't stand the
two locals. Just as an example I might
mention that tho Pacolet Mills, near
Spartanburg, took a hundred bales away
from our linn's buyer at Williston a few
days ago. This cotton had to come this
way and made a pretty long trip, but the
mill men will have it."
A roport was current to the o fleet that
Savannah was paying demurrage on seve
ral vcssols, and this looked as though
-Other places were not doing a great deal
of business. The receipts at Savannah
however, were several thousand above
Charleston, and tho steamship men here
woro not disposed to brag very much
Several vessels aro expected in within
tho next few days, and this will make tlx
cotton licet look very largo with receipts
of 2,000 bales and less per day.-News

and tho publio is glvon to understand
that thorn will bo moro to follow, By
way of introduction Mr. Ouzts says that
during his long connection with tho dis
pensary ho has observed a number of
things that ho know to. bo wrong. Ho
roportod those things as ho found thom
out to members of tho Hoard of ('ont roi.
Thoy, howovor, did not tako notion, aud
considering that Ita hnd dono ids duty,
ho did not soo fit to carry tho matter any
further. Ho ssys that on tho night of
tho 20th or 21st of Soptombor T. C.
Robinson had told him that traps woro
being laid for Douthit. Robinson was
at tho timo undor tho itdluoueoof liquor.
Ousts goes on to say that Chairman
Miles lo a "liar by his own confession,"
having onco said that ho had told moro
lies sinco ho became a mcmbor ot tho
State Hoard than bo bad told in all his
lifo boforo. Ho goos on to say that
Miles had given tho position of receiv
ing clork to hiB nophow, F, Elrnoro
Young, of Clinton, a young man who
does not oven know tho multiplication

when visiting Congressmen woro enter
tained in Columbia, Milos, in violation
of tlio law, retailed from tho dispensary
$103.85 worth of champagno, wino, rum

G. OuztS bas given out chaptor two of

Hasoldon almost entirely, and Ou/.ts says
(hero will bo other chapters to follow
for sovoral days. Ile starts out by say
"I). Saoi ?v Sons, of Louisville, Ky.;
first bad John T. Gaston, ox-Acting
State Commissioner, as Stato striker,
striking tho board for ordors for thom.
Ho was paid for ono or two purposes,
and their regular drummer, Micklo, dis
charged Gaston during tho mooting of
the board. Gaston told mo that ho im
mediately left Micklo's room in tho Je
rome hotel and wont to tho board room
and called Mr. Cooper, monibor of tho
Stato Hoard, out, and told him of bis
treatment. Cooper went back into tho
board room and bad tho board to coun
termand an order for twonty-livo barrels
of whiskey which had boon given to D.
Sachs & Sons.
"The next deal Sachs A- Sons or their
drummer made with local strikers was
with young Evans, a cousin of J. Dudley
Hasoldon, then chairman of tho board.
This young man was scarcely 21 year old
and had never sold whiskey boforo and
'.nows just about as much about travel
ing for a wholesale houso as tho average
country youth, and they know nothing
about trade and couimorco. Ho could
never have gotten a job if he bad not
been related to tho chairman. Tho
strength of bis pull may ho judged by
the amount of bis and Gaston's orders
which amount to ?10,580.08. Tho amount
may bo larger tba.: this because all the
invoices may not have been posted when
this amount was taken from tho books."
Ou/.ts says liquors woroordorod from
Sachs as needed. Then ho takes up
Friedman, Keller & Co., who fought tho
dispensary law and had an opposition
store and shows bow they worked
through Maitines, of Charleston, and
then employed W. E. Jlluo, another
cousin of Haselden. Mr. Wno succeeded
in getting some good ordors and tho
amount of his pull ami that of Matthies
with J. Dudley Haselden, chairman, ad
vocating orders for bim, amounts to
$10,411) in ordors given.
"Alter the board passed resolutions
excluding local stiikcrs, Blue was turned
down by Friedman, Keilor & Co. and J.
Dudley Haselden decided that their
liquor was not as good as it was while
Rluo was with thom. At least bo gave
up advocating purchasing from Fried

nows. Sonto of tho reports nay 15 Brit
ish woro killed in the first battle, whito
another roport conum dashing over the

do uot kuow what to say for our readers
to boliovo. Tho telegraphic roport? aro
longthy, imnlo up of speculation. If tmy,
thing definite tums up worth publishing
you will find it in those columns.
Tho following has boon sont out from
Capo Town, near tho seat of hostilities:
"An armored train has boon destroyed
south of Mafeking, and flftoou ops
killod. Tho liners shelled tho Wroo ?*
after tho train was derailed."
A lntor di sp iiteh says;
"Tho armored train was dostroyod
near Kraipan station while on its way,to
Mafeking with guns."
So you seo this is really all there is of
it. It is tiresome to try to ma kn nows
out of such trash.
Without opposition tho Boers havo
occupied all important points in uorth
orn Natal, tho soono of thoir victories in
tho last war with England. Thoy will
probably push on and destroy tho rail
road loading to Durban, the port of
Natal, through that colony. If thoy eau
do this thoy will make tho British nd
vanco a vory slow aud arduous affair,
for thoy already havo possession of tho
only otb or railway linos to tho coast
tho Capotown-Buluwayo and tho Capo
lown?Johannesburg, and can moot tho
invaders at tho Groat Orango* ri vor.
Tho Boora aro certainly audacious.
Thoy aro going for tho biggest British
gamo in sight. Evory important point
on tho Capotown-Buluwayo railroad
west of tho two ropubllcs is oithor
threatened or surrounded. This road,
tho first link in tho proposed Capo to
Cairo system, runs on tho odgo of Brit
ish territory along tho Free Stato and
Transvaal bordor. Tho Doors have cut

aro reported to bo attacking Kimberley,
Vryburg and Mafeking. Tho former is
supposed to bo too well protected for

in which :i00 Burghors woro killod. The
