Use cotton seed instead of commor- i
c'al man urea. There is ut least wovon I
or eight dollars difference in price in
favor of cotton need, and besides you
know that cotton soed ispnre and hori
ost goods. Wlien our experiment sta
tions make up their table? of compara
tive commercial or money values of
cottonseed in comparison ?\ith com
mercial fertilizer, there is usually no
mention made of the. very i 'i I port a a t
fact that every cotton seed acts as a !
small reservoir to hold moisture and
air daring drought, which may exert
an influence toward feeding the plant
over the concentrated manures that
might count for one-third of a crop in
extremo cases. The mechanical action
of cotton seed in keeping the soil open
and loose to preserve moisture and
admit air is another advantage.
(Jar cotton oil mills and chemists
tell us that the oil in seed is of no
value as a fertilizer, and that it is a
loss to put it on land, bur, it is cheaper
for tho farmer to lose che oil at home
than it is to haul it off to the mills and
give it away.
Hold Cotton is Consul's Advice.
Washington, Jan. 19.?The following
report from United States Consul
Smythe at Tnnstnll, England, was
given out today by the Department of
Commerce and Labor, dated December
-in was my intention to cable you
today in reference to reports that ap
peared in last night's papers concern
ing tho condition uf the Egyptian cot
ton crop, with relation to the position
of our cotton planters of the South,
but I concluded a mail dispatch would
accomplish my purpose just as well.
These reports are very discouraging,
inasmuch as they foreshadow a short
age in next years crop of the class of
staple that comes into competition
with American cotton. For this reason
I do not hesitate to say it would be ad
visable to warn the Southern planters
against any move on the part of Lan
cashire manufacturer!} to force the
scale of cotton at low prices in order to
meet the requirements of euch a de
"The general opinion in Lancashire
is that a plentiful supply of American
cotton cau be bad ou a 10-cent basis.
Combinations are being formed to held
the price at this notch, if possible, and
these combinations intend to operate
through agents sent specially to Loui
siana and all the cotton producing con
t?es of the South. The troubles nmong
the cotton manufacturers of the East
are expected to aid in the development
of this scheme as they are calculated
to have a depressing effect on the home
market in their relation to supply and
"My candid opinion is that an euor
mohs amount of money can be saved
to our plantera by taking this matter
up in time, and invoking the assistance
of tho banks or tho national treasury,
if such an arrangement can be mftde, I
to enable the planters to warehouse
their cotton nntil the present etocka
are worked up on this side, and the
necessities of the manufacturers com
pel them to break, or make liberal
terms with the groweis.
"The erection of new mills in Lan
cashire, and the effect which their con
sumption is ??keiy to have oj tho mar
ket next year, lends additional interest
to this subject and serves to empha
size the views I have taken the liberty
to present in this dispatch. Fifteen
cent cotton, or even 12-cent cotton,
a difference of two cents, compared
with ten cents, on every bale of. cot
ton exported, would cut a very im
portant figure in the net assets of one
year's crop, and add materially to
the wealth and prosperity of the
South." . - '_
TERRIBLE RIOTS IN RUSSIA..
Strikers Rise in Revolt Against Thcuov
erameaf, and They, Their Wives and
Children are Shot Down Like Dogs.
St. Petersburg, January 22.?This
haa been a day of unspeakable terror
in St. Petersburg. The strikers of
yesterday, goaded to desperation by a
day of violeooe, fury and bloodshed,
are in a state of open insurrection
against the government. A condition
almost bordering on oivil war exists in
the terror-stricken Russian capital.
The oity is under martial law, with
Pricco Vasilohikoff as commander of
over 60,000 of the Emperor's oraok
guards. Troops are bivouoking in
the streets tonight at various places
on the Nevsky Prospect, the main
thoroughfare of the oity. Oo the Is
land of Vassili Ostrow and in iha in
dustrial seotions infuriated men bav?
thrown up barrioades, which they are
holding. The Empress Dowager has
hastily sought safety at Tsarakoe
Belq, where Emperor Nicholas II is
Minister of the Interior Sviatopolk
Nirsky presented to his Wajesfy last
night the invitation of the workmen
to appear at their winter palace this
afternoon and receive their petition,
but the Emperor's advisors had al
ready taken a dcoiaion to show a firm
and reiolute front, and the Emperor's
answer to 100,000 workmen trying to
make their way to the Palaee today
?as a solid array of troops who met
them with rifle, bayonet and sabre.
The priest, Gopou, the leader and
ideal of the men, in his golden vest
ments, holding aloft the cross and
marohing at the head of thousands of
workmen through the Narva Gate,
miraculously escaped a volly which
laid low half a hundred persons.
The .figures of the total killed or
wounded at tho Mosoow Gate, at vari
ous bridges and islands and at the
Winter Palace vary. The best esti
mate-is 500, although there am exag
Earated figures placing the number as
igh as. 5,000. Many mon were ao*
compauied by their wives end chil- i
diet),and in the confusion, which left i
no time for discrimination, the latter
shared the fate of the men. The
troops, with the exception of a Binglo
regiment, which is reported to havo
thrown down its arms, remained loyal
and obeyed ordors. But the blood
j which crimsoned the snow has fired
! tho brains cud paf-sions cf the strikers
j and turned women as well as men
I into wild beasts; and the cry of the
! infuriated populace is fur vengeance.
The sympathy cf tho middle classes
is?with the workmen.
! If Father Gopoa, the master mind
of the movement, aimed at open revo
lution, he managed the affair like a
, genius to break the faith of the peo
ple in " The Little Father." who they
wore convinced, aud whom Fathvr
Gopon bat' taught them would right
the wrongs and redress their griev
ances. Gorky, the Kustiao novelist,
! expressed the opinion that today's
! work will break his faith of the pto

! evening to the Associated Press:
"Today inaugurated revolution in
Russia. The Emperor's prestige will

' ding of inuoccnt blood. llo has
allicnatcd himself forever from his
people. Gopon taught the workmen
10 believe that an appeal direct to the
'Little Father' would be headod.
They have been undeceived. Gopon
is now convinced that peaceful mear.j
have failed and that the only remedy
is .force. Tho first blood has been
Bhod, but more will follow. It is now
tho people against the oppressors, and.
the battle will be fought to the bitter
Th? military authorities had a firm
grasp on overy artery in tho city. At

and infantry, held every bridge
across the frozen Geva, tho net work
of canals which interlaces tho city
and tho gates leading from tho indus
trial sootiou, while in the Palaoo
Equare, at the storm oentre, wcro
massed dragoons, infnntry and Cos

bridges and gates, men, women and
children crossed the frozen river and
canals on the ice by twos and three,
hur>**;"g to tho Palace fquaro, whoro
they wore sure the Emperor would bo
to hear them. , The street approaches
to the square were cleared by volloys
and Cossack charges. Men and wo
men, infuriated to frenzy by the loss
of loved ones, oursed the soldiers
while they retroated. Men harangued
the orowds, telling them that the Em
peror had failed them and that tho
time had come to act. Men began to
build barricades in tho Ncvsky Pros
pect and at other points, using any
material that came to hand, and even
chopping down telegraph poles.
Fighting meantime continued at
vatious places, soldiers volleying and
charging the tob. The whole city
was m a state of panio. Women are
running through the streets seeking
loBt mombors of their families. . Sev
eral barricades were carried by the
Towards P o'clock in tho evening
the crowds, exhausted, began to dis

On the Kamioostov Isfand all the
lights were extinguished.

today's events, arc apparently para

An tflicial statement was promised
at midnight, at which hour it was an

Intense indignation is bound to be

Tho Warsaw and Baltic Railroad is
reported to have been torn up for a
mile and a half, but tho damage is

There aro rumors of trouble in Fin
land and disaffection of the troops.
With darkness it was feared the
mob might try to loot and pillage and
oven burn, but beyond the breaking
of a fow windows in the Nevsky Pros
peot and tho pillaging or fruit shops
little disorder was reported. Most of
the theatres were closed, but at the
Poople's Palace, whioh was open, lib
erals attempted to baranguo tho au
dience, proposing at the olose that the
audienoe tostify to their sympathy
with their fallen brothers. The ora
tors were promptly arrested, but the
audionoo walked out.
By midnight the sound of firing
bto-* ceased, except on Vassili Oatrow
Island, whero the troops met a renew
ed demonstration with several volleys,
in the meantime, the strike leaders
assembled and decided to oontinue
