FA 'RMERtS' UNION.
Every Southern State Represented at
Memphis Meeting-Will Hold
for Fifteen SCents.
'AMemphis, Tenn.. Jan. 7.-The i
annual convention of the Farmers'
Educational and Cooperative un
ion met here today. About 300 de- ti
legates, representing every South- st
ern state, and Miss ,uri, Kansas and tl
Washington are in attendance. d
G. S. Barrett of Union county, al
Georgia. president of the union, be
fore calling the convention to or
er, said: It
"One of the most important
we hope to accomplish is to
5 cents for cotton, and we are
to get it if we have to hold it
the market for years."
ides planning for the reduc- d
tion of the cotton acreage the con- C
vention is considering steps to make ti
practicable the holding of cotton by p
those who are not in shape finan- fc
cially to wait months for their
Numerous suggestions have been~ s
.made along this line. One which p
has bebn discussed at some length ti
was warehouse certificates for stor- c
ed cotton as the basis of a bond is- o
sue. These bonds will be sold to b
those members of the union who tl
have the ready money to spare. A c
fair rate of in,terest would be fix- e
ed, the bonds to mature in 12 tl
While the members of the union v
would be first urged to take these ti
bonds. they would also be offered
to such banks as might desire them.
In 'all cases the interest would
make them a desirable investment.
The effect would be to band all
the sections more closely together,
by the forming practically of a big
company with all members vitally u
interested in- the price of cotton.
Another proposition being dis- J
tussed is the forming of a regular i
stock company and to issue stock r
with seed cotton as the basis.
HONOR FOR DR. JOYNES.
University Professor Granted Retir- p
ing Allowance from Carnegie t
Columbia, Jan. 7.-At the meet- '
i ing of the faculty of the University P
of South Carolina this afternoon t.
anno'uincement was made that Dr.
Edward S. Joynes had been voted i<
a handsome "retiring allowance" t<
by the Carnegie board for the ad- r
vancement of education, "in con-n
sideration of unusual and distin- t
guished service as a professor of s
This complimentary action was
based on a record of continuous t
Sand varied service since 1853, and s
has been recommended by many of i
- Dr. Joynes's old pupils and friends, t
~who occupy prominent and import- '
ant positions in various parts of ~the '
countrf. Dr. Joynes has accord
ingly submitted his resignation, to I
take effect at the close of the prnes- r
For twenty-five years Dr. Joynes 1
has been a member of the faculty ~
of the South Carolina College, ~
now the University of South Car
olina. Before that he was a mem
ber of the faculty of Washington
and Lee University, at Lexington, 2
Va., serving under the presidency
of Gen. Robert 'E. Lee, and before
that timie he was a teacher at the
University of Virginia, where he
had studied and obtained his 'de
gree. Since coming to the Southt
Carolina State College he has been
engaged, not only in teaching, but
in the preparation of text books,
which have gained a wide use
throughout the United States. Dr.
Joynes has for years ranked as one 1
of the country's leading teache,.rs '
in modern languages, and his work1
-<s author and teacher has com-i
mended him to the Carnegie board.(
It is the rule of the Carnegie fcomi-2
dation that no "retiring allowance"
shall be granted to teachers in
state or denominational institu
tions, but on account of his distin
guished services in the cause of
education an exception has been
Im-ade in the case of Dr. Joynes.
Dr. Joynes has since its founda
tion been a trustee of Winthrop
College and has taken an acute in
terest in the affairs of the state at
large. He is a man of wide learn
ing and broad sympathies and,
while he will retire from aetive
work at the close osf the present
sesson, it is hoped that he will be
prevailedL on to remain as adviser .
and counsellor at the University of
South Carolina. His place at the
head of the department of modern
languages will indeed be hard to
fill. J. H.
WILL APPEAL TO LEGISLATURE.
Augusta City Cruneil Worked Up
Over North Augusta Dispensrry.
Augusta, Ga., January 7.-Find
ig it illegal to put a toll on the
forth Augusta Bridge, and thus
ill the dispensary at that place.
ie city council of Augusta by
ringent resolutions has decide('.

embers of council will appear be
re the legislature to present reso
itions to that end adopted tonight.
After a preamble citing in speci
terms the injury of the dispen

:rov completely the desires o'f the
eople of, Georgia, as. evinced by

ie legislature of South Carolina a
>mmittee from this body to pres
nt that memorial and to urge that
ie state of South Carolina grant

that will appareitly be a condi- I
on of unmived evil."
ALDRICH OPPOSING CAPERS.
Another Report as to why Latter's
Confirmation is Being Held Up.
Washington, January 6.-It is
nderstood today that the question I
f confirming the nominatipn of
ohn G. Capers as commissioner of
iternal revenue will possibly be
eached in the Senate during the
ext few days, but there is still a
ystery concerning the matter.
enator Tillman has already said
at he was not opposed to Mr. Ca
ers' confirmation, and Senator La
mer made the same statement to
2ie News and Courier correspond
nt today. Therefore if a fight is
ade it will not be because of op
osition on the part of either ot
2e South Carolina Senators.
From another source it has been
~arned that the opposition of Sena
>r Arich~ was the cause of the
omination' being held up, and that
.e has exj essed surprise th'at the
wo South Carolina Senators
hould back Mr. Capers, who is a
The hold-up' suggests that al
ough Senator Aldrich is of the
ame political faith as Mr. Capers
may be that he is using his posi
ion as a club f'or political reasons,
vhich are not now apparent, but
hich may develop later. It is al
o learned that Mr. Capers may
old his 'present position indefi
itely, Mr. Pearl Wright, the orn
inal appointee, having given no
ndication recently that he means
