IOLD YOUR COTTON.
IMPORTANT ACTION OP THE GREEN
'The Farmers AdvIsed to Hold Their Cot
ton for Better iprices unti to uavo it
IVghed When Sold by Alliano Weigh
,S. C., Oet.
Greenville County Farmers' Alliance
met in special session today for the
purpose of taking some action on the
vexed question (with them) of the buy
ing and selling of cotton. They pass ed
the following resolutions, which is in
tended to have a far-reaching effect and
to unite thu Alliance of the South in
an effort to raise the price of cotton:
Whereas, cotton is our cash product
and producers are forced to take for it'
prices below the cost of production.
Not only the farmers but the merchants
who furnished them supplies on time,
must sustain loss. The profits on cot
ton are divided between speculators
We the Greenville Farmers' Alliance
do advise our farmers to refuse to sell
their cotton at the present prices, and
to at once warehouse so much cotton as
Will satisfy their creditors, and bor
row from banks or individuals on ware
house receipts, and hold their cotton
for better prices.
That the action of our meeting be
published throughout the Cotton States,
and we ask the farmers to at once,
through state and county Alliances, act
in accordance therewith.
That all sub-Alliances are hereby re
quested to call meetings at once to act
on these resolutions.
The Alliance of this county proposes
to accomplish the purpose of the reso
lution by concentrating the cotton
brought to this market in the Alliance
warehouse for the purpose of having it
graded into lots, "so that each grade
can be sold at its true market value."
The warehouse will store cotton ltteen
days free of charge to buyer and seller
alike, enabling the seller to hold his
cotton for better prices and the buyer
to get large lots for shipimgnt. After
the lifteen days frev storage is out, the
cost of storage and insurance will not
exceed twenty-five cents for the lrst
n1oo1th and twenty cents for sub
A committeeman of the Alliance says:
"It is now generally conceded that the
present crop is far short of that of last
year, and of a much liner quality: yet
the prices are below the cost of prodhuc
tion. It therefore must be apparent to
all that there is everything to gain and
nothing to lose by holding. Some of
the Greenville banks have agreed to ad
vance liberally on warehouse receips."
A resolution was also passed asking
every true Allianceman not to sell his
cotton until he takes it to the ware
house. The Alliance proposes to have
a grader of cotton, or grade it them
selves by "types" from New York.
The cotton buyers here are defied, and
if the plan of the Alliance is carried out
they must buy Alliance cotton at the
warehouse and have it weighed by AlIl
lend of a luanall.
MIN('1:, Ind., Oct. 18.-Word has
reached this city from a source that can
be regarded as being perfectly reliable,
of the dilscovery of a semi-hiumani moni
strosity that lays all other treaks of na
ture in the shade. Yesterday, wvhile .J.
'r. lilackburn' a Washingtoni J'ownship
farmer, was going t!uroughi a cornfield,
in which weire nunmerous stumps, he
discovered lying on one tha~t was about
four feet in diameter a female (log that
had gived birth to a litter of pups, one
of wnich possessed the head of a human
being, although its face bore a striking
resemblance to that of the worst kind of
an idiot. Its body was shaped liKe a boa
constrictor, and, being of an unusual
length, it would wind around in all con
ceivable forms but without in.iury to
any of its brothers and sisters. The
forelegs are miuch longer than the hind
ones, which gives it a giraffe appear
ance when standing on its feet. Its
skin issoft and pliable, and is possessed
ot no hair, with the exception of a very
small "casis" on the top of the head,
Instead of whining, like all pups, it
gives out a hideous scream that imi
tates an eagle wvhen lighting for its,

dog and Is possessed of a full set of
teeth, Its instinct causes it not to mo

the annoyance that is brought about
by natural causes. On its feet are

SANT'IAGO, Oct. 17.--The anti-Ameri
can feeling which Is very pronounced
reached a climax last evening~ in the
streets of Val paraiso. A number of
sailors of the Ufilted States steamer,
liatimnoro, now in port, were wvalking
along the street when they were con
fronted by some sailors of a Chilian
man-of-war. Sone wordls passed, wh'len
a fierce light followed. T[hero was evi
(dently bad blood on both sidhes, andh it
only needed a pretext to bring on a con..
Iict. JBoth parties were armed with
knIves and p)istols, which were freely
used. When the combatants were sep
arated by the police and bystanders, it
was found that one of the Jialtimore
sailors had been killed ant live others
5eriouisly woundled. Several of thue Chil
mans were also badly hurt. This wvas
the first time the JBaltinmore's sailors
had been ashore for a month. Th'le In
tentmant of the city hadl assured Cap
tain Schley of the Jialtimnore that his
sailors would be perfectly safe on Chiii
Ian soil. Tlhie feeling today between
A meticans andl Chilians is very strong.
Seve'ral add(itional lights occurred today
among sailors, but they were niot so se
rious as that of yesterday. TJhe dead
sailor of the lBaltimore wvill be buried
tomorrow. An armned force wvill be
landed from the military guard of lion
or for the occasioni. Trouble is feared,
as it will he Sunday and election day.
Callian oflicials, alive to the gravity of
the ocassioni, have again hpromuisedl the
Americans protection from assault uin
der all circumustances.

'TAUNTON, Va., Oct. 17.-A special
from Clifton Forge, Va., today to the
Daily News says: This morning agang
of six armed drunken negroes came into
town, and boasted loudly that they had
come to take the place. This created
terrible confision on the streets, as all
the negroes had pistols and other
weapons, which they exhibited freely.
They walked about -the streets, insult
in ladies and committing other out
rages, and creating a terrible riot. A
number of citizens decided to arrest
them, but the negroes violentiy reslsted
arrest and broke away from their would
be captors, who gave chase. When the
negroes had nearly reached Irongate
they turned and comnenced iring upon
their pursuers, and a battle between the
posse and the rioters ensued. Philhp
Bolling, a brakeman of the Chesapeake
and Ohio Railroad, was kilIed outright
at the first lire, and Frederick Wilkin
son was injured seriously. The ofilcers,
after some difliculty, captured five of the
gang, including the leaders, but one is
still at large.
Two large mobs, numbering in all
about 500, formed in the town and met
at Sweetwood's store at about 10
o'clock tonight. They fired salutes, and
then the two combined and marcheld to
the jail where the prisoners, taken in
the afternoon, had been conlined. They
attempted, after firing into the jail for
some time, to break open the door with
a ram, but it was too strong and resist
ed their efforts. They th'en procied
axes and sledge hammers and broke in.
Tliev took out three prisoners, and tak
ing them to a gully about half a mile
fro1 the jail, strung two of theml up to
a tree and tilled them full of bullets.
The third prisoner. who was a boy six
teen years old, they brought back to the
jail to lock hini up again, but finally let
him go, and lie escaped. The fourth
prisoner, who, had been crippled with a
bullet in the afternoon, was still in the
jail, the door or which i.,l been repair
ed. Breaking in again, tey took him
cut, and putting him in a cart, they
hauled him to the same place and hun's
him to the tree that the loriner two had
been hung 11o.
Another member of the uang had
been shot down in the afternoon near
Irongate and left lying by the side of the
railroad track in a d.ying condition.
Sho Openoed Fire.

'. I1ii1, the manager of the Sloss Iron
and -teel Co., and Deputy Marshal
Schoenfeld, were staniing in the street
when Mrs. lloffman opened fire on
them, firing three shots. She was
within three feet, of the men, but none
of the balls took effect. A police ar
rested her and took the pistol from her,
but she inmediately reached into a
large basket which she carried, and drew
another large gun. She resisted arrest
and created a sensation by yelling while
lhmig taken to jail. She was afterwards
releasedi on a S2300 bond. Mrs. IIoffman
has buen regarded1 as eccentric for sev
