LATE COTTON REPORT
SHOWS LAEGE DECREASE
Condition August 25 Only 73.2 CoM
pared to 89.1 July 25-Crop Esti
mate Also Less.
Washington, Sept. 1.-A total pro
duction of 12,918,200 bales of cotton
as the final yield this year is indicat
ed by the department of agriculture's
official report of the condition of the
growing crop on August 25, which the
crop reporting board, from reports
from its correspondents and agents
throughout the cotton belt, estimated
today at 73.2 per cent. of a normal.
This estimate, based on the ratio of,
the average yield for the past ten
years to the average condition of the
crop on August 25 for the past ten
years, would mean a final yield of 1
181.65 pounds per acre on the planted,:
arear of approximately 34,000,000
acres, allowing for an abandoned
acreage of 1,000,000 and provided the
crop . es not decline or improve from
the date the condition was estimated
to the time of picking.
These estimates of production, while
unofficial, were reckoned by the of
ficial method adopted by the depart
ment of agriculture and used by the
crop reporting board in its monthly
estimates of the final yield of the im
portant cereal crops of the country.
Unofficial advices from the cotton
belt Indicate the most important de
clines in the crop were due to severe
droughts, hot winds and worms. Re
ports indicate that heavy shedding3
caused by hot weather was the chief
factor of deterioration in practically
all States, except Louisiana and Mis
sissippi, where there was too much
rain. In all other States heat and
drought greatly damaged cotton dur
ing the month, especially in Texas and
Since the date on which the condi
tion was taken-August 25-there
have been general rains which greatly
relieved coditions and considerable
Improvement is looked for when thd

'News and Couri-. Sept. 2.1
Despite the advierse weathrer condi
tions which prevailed yesterday, the
Charleston Red Hen, under the auspi
ces of Eutaw Tribe, No. 10, Improved
Order of Red Men, held one of the
most enjoyable o'zdngs ,of the year ai
the Schuetzeny:a-, the features being
speeches On the history and meaning
of the order by Governor Cole. L.
Blease, the Hon. Otto Klettner, Dr. J.
P. Carlisle and the Hon. John D. Cap
The outing was not largely attended.'
This could not be expected in view of
the bad weather which prevailed yes
terday and of the affliction under
-which the city has been lalboring since!
the big storm, but those who were
there, while not large in numbers,
were appreciative and the affair -was
a success from whatever standpoint
it is viewed.
The outing began at 1 o'clock in the
afternoon. There were amusements
'around the big 'Platz for young andI
old and there was plenty of fun to
keep everybody busy. Several prizes
The governor arrived on the
grounds at about 5.30 and met about
everybody at 'the outing, shaking
hands with all. Governor Blease is'
himself past great sachem of the State
and the representative of the South
Carolina Red Men in the great coun
mil of the TTnited States. He was ac
ompanied by Dr. J. P. Carlisle, of
'reenville, the great sachem of the
state, and the Hon. Otto Kletter, past
,reat sachem of the State, and at pres
,nt the great prophet. The Hon. John
). Cappelmann, of Charleston, who
)resided at the meeting, arrived a lit
le later and was warmly welcomed.
Speeches a Feature.
The speeches began in the big dancel
iall of the 'Platz promptly at,8 o'clock.
Chere was not a very big audience, a
Eact which did not discourage the
;peakers, all of whom spoke well and
o the point, none tiring out his aud
ence by lengthy remarks.
The Hon. John D. Cappelmann open
le the speaking with a brief address.
Great Prophet Speaks.
Then Hon. Otto Klettner, past great
;achem and great prophet, haivng
>een introduced by Mr. Cappelmann,
nade a striking address, in which he
;old somewhat of the history of the
)rder. He began by saying that the
;peakers were there to help to devise
ays and means whereby the interests
)f the order in this city might be ad
,anced, and he then proceeded to tell
)f the history of the order from the be
inning. He said that the Improved
)rder of Red Men is the oldet frater
ial Order of purely American origin.
le said that the order was descended
ineally from the Sons of Liberty. In
.771 the order was ' founded
inder the name of Sons of Liberty.
:n 1813 it was made the Or
lberty. In 1813 it was made the Or
ler of Red Men and in 1833 it branch
d out and became the Igiproved Or
ter of Red Men, which name it has
-etained until the present time.
Mr. Klettner said that the first tribe
n this State was at Spartanburg.
wenty-one years ago, when first or
;anized here, there were only 750
nembers in South Carolina. Now
here are over 6,000. In addition to,
he great increase in membersl
housands of dollars have been spent
or the relief of only memb'ers. Some
yeople, said Mr. Klettner, think with,
lisdain of the order because it is com
>osed mainly of workingmen. But, h
;aid, money can give- a p6rson a pleas
ng appearance, but it can nevier make
L true gentleman or a pure woman. Mr
Klettner told of the statue to be erect
dby the Red Men in New York to
be American Indian. He closed with
fine tribute to wocmen, in which he
nentioned the Pocahontas order,
which is, open to women.
Great Sachemn Carlisle.
Having beeni introduced by Mr. Cap
>elmann, Dr. J. P. Carlisle, of Green
ille, great sachem of the State, spoke
m the aims of the Order.
Governor Praises Charleston.
In a few fitting; words concerning
3ease's political success, Mr. Cappel
nann introduced South Carolina's gov
enor. Much applause greeted the ap
pearance of the governor. Governor
3lease, after a few pleasantries, said
hbat he loved Charleston, and always
iad loved her. He- said that he had
een overwhelmed by 'the greetings of
;wo groups of Charleston men recent
.y, once when the Charleston booster
and serenaded him in Columbia, and
:he other time when the Charleston
iremen in 'ColumJbia carried a reel
with a viry pleasing inscription.
The governor said that Charleston
iad had more than her share of trials
md tribulations. Through it all, he
aid, a spirit of push and energy had
isplayed itself which was not equal
Led by any community in the world. He
said that when he saw yesterday the
lstruction caused by th'e storm, and
aw the manhood of Charleston people
3sserting itself, he said to himself
:hat the community that could stand I
ts trials'n such a way must -be the
pride of any State. No wonder, he
sad, that South Carolina loved the
rand old City by the Sea. These
rords were in harmony with words he
poke earlier in the day, when he had
nuch praise for the 'way in which
harleston people pulled themselves
;ogether after the storm. Governor
Blease expressed in behalf of the Red
VIen his thanks to the audience fo
oming out in spite of the weather, anid
1osed his address with a eulogy upon1
woman, who, he said, was the last of
3-od's creations, and consequently the
lst, since the Creator created on an
M~ay M~eet Here.
On the whole, the picnic passed if
v'ery successfully. The committee
hich so ably managed the affai'm of
te picnic was compoised of J. J. Mc
@ldady, chairman; G. H. Stone, H.
Elayes, R. R. Hemphill, J. W. Groom
ind Julius Ortmann. The Charleston
Red Men hope to get the Great Council
of he United States to meet here next

:onvention, which would prov'e a fine
thing for the city.
