recogynition of Dr. Wilson's distin
guished services. In his letter of
resignation Dr. Wilson referred feel
ingly to the institution he had so long
loved and sought to serve and con

"It is my earnest prayer that the

' Those who witness "The Sins of
the Father" at the opera house Fri
day night, October 2S. will s-e a
S e play by a Southerner who
knows his subject. The playwright
-referred to is Mr. Thomas Dixon, au
Thor of "The Leopard's Spots." "The
Clansman," "The Traitor," "Com
rades" and many other successful
plays and stories. Attention is called
to the fact that "The Sins of the
F'ather" was written by an expert, be
'case right now alleged "Southern
-plays" are being offered by writers
whose ignorance of the South is abys
mal. Men who knows nothing of the
social code, of the inter-relation of
races, of the psychology of the white
-xman and of the African, dare * n
tforward and present imaginary scenes
' embodying their absurd ideas about
inter-racial conduct. Such efforts
mnay fool audiences a thousand miles
away fronm the actual scene of the
r'ace problem, but they can not nm
pose on the people of this city. Mir.
Dixon's "T:he Sins of the ~ath&r"
handles without gloves the subject
of the intermixure of races. It goes
straight to the mark. but it does not
aoffend the proprieties and above all
it never strikes a false. mawkish or
'feebly sentimental note, so say those
-who have witnessed it. Do not miss

DIPORTS OF COTTON.
.'America Rought Nearly $16.000,000
Worth Last Year.
Nearly sixteen million dollars'
worth of raw cotton was, in the fiscal
year 1910. imported into the United
'States, the wet'ld's greatest cotton
producing county, the exact figures
being 86.037.691 pounds. valued at
'816.816.1 38. This is a larger sum
sent out of the United States to buy
cotton than ever before. except the
year 1907. when the total was $19.930,
Mc'st of this cotton from abroad is
produoced in Egypnt, but more than a
dzen other countries and all the co
tinents contribute to the grand total.
though presumably none of that com
ing from Euron? is the production of
that section of the world. The total
Quantity imported direct front Egypt
ithe fiscal year 1910 was 57.911.960
po unds. valued at 811.483.555. while
ten million pounds. valued at two mil
lion dollars. speaking in round
r terms, came front Europe: ten million
pounds. valued at a little more than
$1,000,000, came from Asia: seven

England and was presumably brought
thither chiefly from Egypt and, in
less quantities from British colonies.
The next largest contributor after
Egypt and England is Peru, from
which six and three fourth million
pounds, value a S1.0S.,978, were im
ported. From British India nearly
five and one-half million pounds.
valued at $543,607, were imported;
from China, over four and one-fourth
million pounds, valued at $526,080;
from Haiti, -51,002 pounds valued at
$134,11S: Mexico, 122.266 pounds.
valued at $6,558; and from the Dutch
East Indies-Java and Sumatra
373,044 pounds. valued at $38,432, with
smaller quantities from Ven.?zuela,
Santo Domingo, tbe British West In
dies. and Nicaragua; while from Can
aCa 46,422 pounds. brought to tha:
country from other parts of the world,
I% ere imported.
The average pric of this imported
cotton was, in 1910, about 30 per cent
Ligher than that of American cotton
exported in the same year, while a.
few years ago the average price of im
ported cotton was nearly or quite 101
per cent higher than the average ex
port price of domestic cotton. This
is probably due to the increasing
share which - cotton from countries
other than Egypt forms of the total
inrports of that article. Egyptian
cotton, by reason of its length and
fineness of staple always commands
a price materially higher than that of
American upland. the average import
price of cotton brought from Egypt
having been. in 1910, 20 cents per
pound, against an average export
1rice for American upland in that
vear of 14 cents; and, in 1905, 15 1-2
rents .for Egyptian, against a little
less t'an 9 cents for American. This
q-cstion of p-ice indicates quite clear
lv that the 10,000,000 pounds of cot
ton imported from England in 1910
was also of Egyptian origin, its aver
age iMport price having been 20 cents
per pound. or approximately the same
as that imported direct from Egypt.
The six- and three-fourth million
pounds imported from Peru averaged
16 cents per pound, or a little more
than the export price of domestic cot
ton; from India, about 10 cents per
pound, and from China, 11 1-2 cents.
China, India and Peru sent larger
quantities of cotton to the United
States in 1910 than ever before. Im
ports of Chinese cotton but once
reached as much as a half million
pounds prior to 1909, when the total
was one-and one-half miliion pound3,
against four and one-half million in
1910. From India cotton Imports had
never reached as much as a half mil
lion pounds prior to 1907 and in 1910
for the first time exceeded one million
pounds, having been in that year five
and -one-half million pounds. against
S39,300 pounds in 1909. From Peru
the importations in considerable
quantities extend over a much longer
term of years. having averaged more
than one million pounds per annum in
the deca de. 1892-1901, advancing to
four million in 1907 anid six andr three
fourth million in 1910. FromP Mexico
the quantity imported has greatly
flnctuated, from eleven million pounds
in 1907 to but 122,266 pounds in 1910.
this marked reduction being presum
ably due, in part at least, to the de
velopment of the cotton manufactur
in:g industry in that country.
Meantime with the steady growth
~in imlpor'tations of cotton-those of
1910 having been, with three exce.p
tions, 1902, 1907 and 1909, the largest
on record--the quantity ~of American
cotton consumed in our own markets
is rapidly increasing, having grown
from 1,000.000 bales in 1870- to a lit
tie less than 2,000,000 bales' in 1880.
2,600,006 bailes in 1890, 3,606,000 bales
in 1900, and over 5,000,000 &ales in
1908 and 1909, "While the share which
Southern mills taike of this total has
increased from less than 10 per cent
in 1870 to practically 50 per cent in
1909. and figures p'ublished by the bu
