Congressman Lon Livingston of
Georgia advises thc cotton grower.-! to
enter into an agreement to cut down
next year's crop by one-third. This
he says will have the effect of raising
thc price of thc present crop, because
the manufacturers will bc compelled
to take notice of next year's crop and
buy accordingly this year.

There is a possibility of Winthrop

Andrew Carnegie, lt will bo remem
bered that some time ago l'rcsident
Johnson received from that source a
check for $20,000 for a library. Tho
plans were alb completed and Mr. Car
negie was so pleased with the result
that he offered the college $10,000
more provided that institution raised
$1,000 which is the usual amount re
quired. Plans aro now on foot for
raising the necessary amount.
Representativo Morrill of Pennsyl
vania has introduced a bill to reduce
representation in States where citi
iens are disfranchised. Tho bill is
more general than . that intro
duced by Senator Platt, and its pro
visions apply, to any State limiting
suffrage. Tho bill, if enacted into
law, would rcduco the representation
in Congress of any State, which, after
March 4, U?07, denies the right of
suffrage to any of its male inhabitants
or in any way abridges such right

or oilier crimes." The reduction is

London, Dec. ll).-Russia's war for

Kuropatkin telegraphed this week that
if the number of trains on tho Trans
Siberian railway was not considerably
inciensed ho would bo unable to iced
the troops already nt tho front. Tho
local products which helped the com
missaries during tho summer and
autumn uro no longer avai'ablo, while
tho army is larger. The truth is that
tho capacity of the railroad has reach
ed its utmost limits. It will, of course,
bo impossible to arid reinforcements
under such circumstances. Therefore,
at best, the Russian military position
in Manchuria cannot improve.

highest financial circles in London,
