Houston, Tex., June 22.?Nine no
grocs met death last night at the
W hands of a mob in tlie vincity of
Hemphill, in Sabine county. Today
I both races secured arms and the tcnII

aged 24; Cleveland Williams,
aged 27; William Manuel, aged 25;
Frank Williams, aged 22; two un,
known men; Wm. Coy.
The lynching followed the killing of
two white men by negroes. Two weeks
ago llugh Dean and several other
white men visited a negro church anil
^ school house, where a dance was in
progress, presumably in quest of liI
During the evening Dean was killed
and six negroes were*held for the

a prominent farmer, was assassinated
while sealed at the dining table

HOLD SPOT COTTON FOR
THE MINIMUM PRICE 15 CENTS
Some sixty days ago we were told
that cotton was going lo eight cents
per pound. We wore told this by
some of our leading business men and
cotton buyers of our cities and they
did finally scare some of our farmers
and managed to get them to sell
some at ten cents per pound. Now
lets see what it is selling for. All the
way from 12 to 12 1.-2 cms per pound.
Now it behooves us lo investigate the
cause of this rise of ten dollars per
bale. Is it that trade conditions are
so much better, or is it that the holding
of it off of the market is the
cause? The blind man can see the
cause. According to the best estimates
obtainable the requirements of
the mills this year will be greater
than the supply of acceptable
grades of cotton, hence there should
be no fear of a surplus to embarrass
the marketing of the balance of this
year's crop. On I he other hand it
is now generally considered that after
the shortage of last year's crop of 4,500,000
bales that the world would
need a big crop this year lo supply the
demand. A bumpei *rop cannot be
expected this year because the acreage
has been reduced and the crop is
a poor stand. Excessive rains in the
west, and the lateness of the season
and a dozen other unfavorable conditions.
II is impossible that a large
crop can be made with these conditions
and so I here is no need to fear
the alarming predictions of the coflon
buyers and I heir allies that cotton
cannot go higher. 1 want to tell yon
that the very thing thai has advanced
it Ion dollars a halo the last thirty
days will still if applied make it
bring the minimum price. 15 eonls.
Now what is (lie remedy? TTold. hold,
hold spot cotton and always remember
futures cannot he spun. Spot
cotton is oiling right here in South
Carolina for the same price spots are
selling for in New York, and we all
know it lakes aboul one oenl per
pound to carry cotton to Now York
and sell it. This shows the conditions
al home needs it for the mills.
This should stimulate every holder of
spot col ton to hold for the minimum
price 15 cents. /It is not loo late to
