Cotton lias reached thc ll cent
mark, and if there is no general move
ment among tho farmers to hurry the
remainder of their crop to market, the
good prices prevailing will probably
be maintained. Precipitate ha?te to
6ell invariably causes slumps und
fluctuations. If the Southern planters
can solve the problem of properly
marketing their principal product,
they will give strength and firmness
to the market and keep prices at a
more ut*.-form level. Tho warohouso
system enables farmers to work in
unison for a common end, and with
its extension and enlargement will
doubtless como a better and more
Batisfaotory method of selling and
marketing to tho best advantage.
The corporations aro favored none
too much under the stringent provis
ions of the tax laws of Texas passed
at thc last session of the legislature,
and heavy penalties are provided for
the failure to pay taxes within the
time fixed by law. Many of the
smaller corporations have failed to
comply with the law, and if thc penal
ties are strictly enforced they will be
forced into the bands of a receiver.
Several of the railroad Bystems are
thus affected. Beoauso of the influence
they command the corporations are
often able to defy the law and.io vir
tually set aside the will of the people
as expressed through their legislative
bodies, but the democratic spirit in
Texas has always been of a radical
nature, standing for equal end just
privileges for all before the law.
From its list of over 17,000 corres
. pondents tho Southern Cotton Asso
ciation bas gathered statistics whioh
give the ostimated yield for the pres
ent year of 9,444,314 bales of cotton.
In view of the faot that Fall River
markets are bare of spot cotton goods
and sales are being made for delivery
not later than February, and also be
cause over 4.000,000 new spindles aro
being added to the cotton maohinery
in foreign countries, the association
thinks the prevailing price too low
and urges the farmers to hold for an
advanoe. The textile mills of the
world, it is said, have sold this orop
far in advanoe and at, pr ico o whioh
' ' trill justify them in paying several
eents por pound more than ? they are
paying afc present. The market for
tho sal? of cotton goods is constantly
enlarging, asd'the raw product should
command a price commensurate with
that of other commercial products.
It is said that most active measures
are being used by influential persons
in the North to prevent foreign immi
grants from coming southward. The
South ?oes not want the lower and
vicious classes that have disturbed
labor conditions and proven such an*
undesirable addition to the citizenship
of the Northern States, but she does
want thousands of honest, industrious
white immigrants who will help to de
velop her untouched resources and
elevate her citizenship. The movo
N mont to secure a good class of immi
grante has become general over the
Sooth, en4 in our own State the Com
missioner of Inimigration has done
splendid work in bringing good people
o here ta make their homos. - A Urge
% and continuous influx of tho right sort
bf immigrants will gradually result in
? the crowding out bf tho negro race,
and ?bea tho South is once freed' from
the black peril? newera of progress
and prosperity will begin.

Too proud to remain iu tho town where

Ability and Honesty. .
Recently there baa been an un
usual number of irregularities, con
fusion of ac cou u ts, shortages soi
embezzlements among county offi
cials of this State. Of these delin
quent offioiala there are two .elaaaes,
those who are plainly dishonest and
those whose irregularities are attribu
ted to incompetency or carelessness.
In dealing with the latter class ^ though
there may be doubt aa to iUeut io
some eases, the officials are exonerat
ed, and if they can ropjaco any deficit
that may exist, the county continuos
to haizard' the resulta of their unfit
