COTTON WILL GO HIGHER.
Junior Senator is Informed by Sta
tistician Neal the Crop WilllProb
ably Be About 10 1-2 Million
Florence, Oct. 30.-United States
Senator E. D. Smith is in receipt of a
letter from Statistician R.. L. Neal,
with, advance sheets of a circular to
-be sent out, showing that, after a
trip over the South, the most eareful
estimates of the cottoi crop this yeaT
indicates a possible cotton crop ,
10,520,000 bales, agreeing with a re
cent estimate issued by Senator
From exporters, Senator Smitth
learned that it is expected, if the
Government report issued next week
on cotton confirms private advices,
cotton will be bound to reach famine
prices. Speaking of the rejent cur
tailment of production by ~e mills,
the Senator to-day said:
''The curtailment by the mills is
not because of the high price of -e
staple, nor the depression in the price
of goods, but because the spinners see
rvhat there is not going to be cotton
enough to keep the mills busy until
the next crop, and a shutting down is
inevitable. They make a convenience
of necessity now in the ;hope such ac
tion -will depress cotton, while they
buy greedily wherever they can, de
spite their argument.
'The frmers now -have an oppor
tunity to see how corporations stick
to .their organization when business
interest demands individual action.
Just as was the case with the farmer
when :he rushed his cotton to market,

"This is now the farmers' day,
15 Cents at Manning.
Manning, October 30.-The cotton
market at this place, which has held
up well all this season, got into the6
15 cents column to-day. About three
fourths of the crop has been gather
ed and sold, however, and the high
price will not benefit a great r -mty.
Quite a number of farmers in this
county sold cotton. early in the sea
son for fall delivery at 10 cents and
it makes them sick to see the' price
going up.. Many who have been sell
iug at the higher prices Tecently pre
vailing are buying new horses, bug
gies, pianos, organs, etc., and trade
generally has been quite brisk, .*hile
the merchants are having better col
letions than in any fall for several
years past. A good crop of corn,
hay, oats gnd feel stuff generally has
combined to place the farmers in po
sition to actually enjoy the good
price for cotton.*

Abbeville, 10ct. 30.-Cotton is kig
in Abbeville to-day. It sold on the
Abbeville market during the day for
15 cents per pound.
Will Close Two Days a Week.
Charlotte, N. C., Oct. 30.-At a
meeting of all the cotton inills of
Alamanee County, held 'at Burlington
to-day it was unanimously resolved Cto
curtail production to the extent of
two days a week, or one.4hird time,
.until February next. The agreement
goes into effect immediatelly and ev

of 26 signed up. In the aggregate
nearly 200,000 spindles and 6,000

- H COUNTRY BDITOR.
One of the staunchest types of con
structive Americanism, wherever 10
*ated, is the country editor, an in
stitutign in.digenous to this nation.
And an illuminating sample of thie
type is T. Larry Gantt, of Georgia
and South Carolina and the south
at-large, now located at Whiteville,
N. C., where he is pursuing his per-.
~.ennial vocation of getting out the
snappiest and best weekly in the
commonwealth. Not to know Larry
Gan:t is to confess ignorance of poli
tis and journalism in this neck of
the woods for the past several de
The News-Reporter is the name of
the weekly he is now editing, and
'reently he had a quarterly gather
ing of the .correspondents wno cover
the news of Golumbus county with
the inclusiveness of the morning dew
and the young grass.
One of the principal speakers up
o this occasion-and big~ publie men
ame fro near and tar to do honor
to Larry-was Josephius D)amels.
atonlly known as editor r :ne
Raleizlh News and Observer. In writ
aof his m:periecesC. Mr. Djamels
:asown1 as th f& irs: duty fe
(.-u.ntwry editor to report to his s-u;i
scribers the doings of folks they
know, and then proceeds:
That is the principle that guides
Mr. Gantt and his wonderfully clever,
correspondents. Nothing happens in
Wrangtang, Columbus county, from
the fact that "Mr. John WV. Faulk
is preparing to take a few board
ers,'"to "in a few days we expect to
see a new railroad completed,'" that
does not appear in a Wrangtang cor
respondence of the Whiteville News
Reporter. Nothing is little or unim
portant that concerns a neighbor, and
the party given by a young lady of
Cattail Bay is far more interesting
to his readers than a social function
at the white house.
One would search far to find a bet
ter definition of the scope of the
country -weekly, adding thereto, of
course, the conceded -principle that
the country editor isalwaysa" boost
er" for his community.
It is one, too, followed wtih strik
ing accuracy by the craft in Georgia.
To a man, the country editor in this
state is obsessed with the conviction
tlat his town and county are the most
promising and best to live in in A
merica. He is at mortal feud with
the patron or stranger who disputes
the assertion, and he has more dif
ferent ways of preaching his develop
ment doctrine than a politician has
f side-stepping questions.
He is hot after the news feature
too, and it is only the man who has
azcess to the country weeklies that
knows native Georgia in its unskim
med virility and richness.
The Constitueion has always held
that it is a Georgian's duty, first, to
ubscribe to his home paper, that he
might keep in touch with affairs at
his elbow; then comes a daily,: a tri
weekly or. a weekly newspaper,
gauged by his means, to keep him
jam:up with the doings of the out
Most Georgians, especially during
recent years, can afford two of these
choices.! In the isolated instane,
however, where poverty of pocket or
epterprise intervene, and the choice
is narrowed to the home paper or the
outside paper, we -should give our
vote to the former, and we regard
that as the duty of thi rural Geor
It is the .country editor who, like
Larry Gantt, is a benevolent maniac
about his town and county, that does
things for his state. We have plenty
of his type in Georgia.
