The demand for cotton by Euro
pean and borne spinners is very largo,
and thc-pricc ehow> a slight advance.
The policy of holding hack cotton has
proven of benefit in ttopping the de
cline, and if the indications of a re
duced acreage arc evident the price
of cotton should continue to ad
It did not require President Roose
velt's reiteration that he will not
again be a candidate for pre.-ddent of
tiic United States to convince tho
mojoritytof his American fellow citi
zens that he means to "do things"
during his administration. But may
be President Roosevelt is not averse
to the office seeking the man.
President Roosevelt has. let it be
known that he will insist on CongresB
taking up the question of railroad
rates at a special session, to be called
next fall, and it is believed that a
mcaBurc will bo passed that, while
conservative, will provide a remedy
that will bring a reform in rates as
we'll as in the system of rebates.
The North Carolina Supreme Court
has affirmed the decision of the lower
court sustaining the Act passed by
the last Legislature prohibiting
"bucket?hops , and the practice of
dealing in futures. The law makes it
a misdemeanor to open a place where
quotations are furnished or to buy or
to sell options for future delivery
when tho actual delivery of the goods
is not contemplated. The effect of
the decision is to close up all branches
of cotton exchange houses in that
State doing a future business.
The estimates uf the Agricultural
Department and that of tho Cotton
Association both agree that the acre
age in cotton has been reduced, but
they differ considerably as to the per
centage. Tho association's estimate
is seven per cent, higher than that of
the government, and the officers of
the association question the accuracy
of the latter's report. Tho main
point, however, is thai, the acreage
has been reduced, though not as much,
probably, aB the Cotton Growers'
Association desired. The farmers
bave more generally stuck to their
pledges than it was thought they had,
no matter which of the two estimates
is nearer the truth.
It is a regular army officer, iu
speaking of the heavy percentage of
desertions from the army and navy of
the United States, who attributes
such desertions to "an abnormal
claim, view and development of per
sonal independece" ou the part of the
American enlisted men afloat and
ashore. In other words, the Ameri
can youth ie too free and independent
an individual to make a good soldier
n or sailor in the regular establishment
. when no war is in progress. As a
I volunteer, as instanced by the Civil
and Spanish-American wars, enlisting
j for a fight and retiring to peaceful
j pursuits when the fighting is over, he
! is unequaled. It is probably true
that as a mere cog in a military ma
chine he never will compare with tho
military units of tbe compulsory ser
vice system of Europe.
The last gift by Mr. Carnegie of a
trust fand of $10,000,000 to provide
annuities for old and disabled college
professors, is one of tbe most remark
able, as it is also one of the most muni
ficent of the contributions ever made by
private wealth for a public purpose.
We say public, because Mr. Carnegie
explains that the purpose of the fund
is not merely to benefit the direct recip
ients of the bounty, but to further
the general advancement of education.
He wishes "to remove a source of
deep and constant anxiety to the poor
est paid and yet one of the highest of
all professions," so poorly paid that
"able men hesitate to adopt teaching
as a career," but he also establishes
the fund in order to enable colleges to
retire old professors in favor of more
useful younger men without Jcausing
material suffering to the displaced.
It is a novel purpose, but as consid
erate and as treasonable as it is prac
tical. His pension fund, however,
will contribute directly to increase
the efficiency of the service of the
college professor. It will enable him
to pursue Mb teaching or his investi
gatton without tho distraction or fear
regarding his maintenance in old age.
His mind will be freo from'sordid
carea in its search for the truth. His
pension fund in essence.is *a generous
endowment for the provision and sup
port of the higher education.

Latest War News.
Tokio, June ''>.?Torpedo boat de
stroyers, winch have returned to Snse
bo, furnish details of the capture of
Vice Admiral Rojestvensky. The de
stroyers Kasurai) Usugumo, Sazanauii
and Kagerou were ordered to attack
the Russian war ships on the night of
May '?, and wero steaming ahead
when they suddenly encountered a
number ol Russian ships. The Kasu
iiii narrowly avoided a collision with a
Russian cruiser, the closeness of which
st eins to hnvo saved the destroyers
from being damaged by the heavy lire
which the Russians directed on them.
During the Russian attack the vessels
forming the destroyer flotilla divided.
The Sazanauii and Kagerou continued
thosearch lot Russian ships through
out the night, and in the morning dis
covered two torpedo ho.'it destroyers.
Uno of them steamed away, but the
other was unable to do so. On ap
proaching the latter the Japanese dis
cerned a white Hag Hying from the
foremost and the Red Crossilag astern.
She proved to be the Redovi, with Ad
mirai Koiestvensky and his staff on
hoard. 'I ho Hedovi signalled that her
engines wore damaged, and that she
was short of coal and water. An
armed guard was sent on board the
Hedovi to receive her surrender. The
Russians requested the Japanese not
to remove Admiral Rojestvensky and
the other oflicurs on account of their
wounds, and the Japanese complied,
with the understanding that the guard
would execute Rojestvensky in the
ercnt of the delay leading to a meet
ing with Russian ships, thus removing
the danger of his recapture. The Saz
anami ran a line to the Hedovi and bo
Kan towing her. lier lino parted
twice. In the morning the Sazanauii
met the Japanese cruiser Akaahi, which
conveyed the two destroyers to Sasobo.
During the trip the destroyers encoun
tered heavy seas and their decks wero
awash during part of the time.

ments show that the Japanese manoeu

the frequent torpedo attacks and the
faet that the RusRiai. vessels did not
carry light, the fleet was much sepa

in combination. The only orders wer?
to reach Vladivostok. The Russians
were short of ammunition and their

"Bennett II. Voting,

! Three years ago The Observer mado
a comparison of the number of boys
and girls "graduating*' in town and
city graded schools, the number of
girls theu being far in excess of the
boys, Noticing tho newspuper reports
of school "commencements1' this

about, the same us it was three years

So it appears that about three times
as many girls as boys are completing
the work in th? graded schools. One
reason for this difference is that boys
are eager to set into business und to
begin the work of money making. An
other renson is that nearly all the
teachers in the graded schools are wo
. men, und boys do not like to be bossed
by women. The proportion of boys
and girls who complete the graded
school work Is about the proportion
that go to the colleges.
