The Quality of the Corn Crop Compara
tively High-The Theat Crop Good.
WAsmfNGToN, March 10.-The March
report of the Department of Agriculture
of the distribution of wheat and corn
shows that 36 .er cent. of the crop of
corn is still in-the farmers' hands, a
smaller proportion than in March, 1885
and 1886, but larger than in 1884. The
estimated remainder is 603,000,000 bush
els. The estimated proportion held for
home consumption is 137,000,000 bush
els, leaving 288,000,000 bushels for trans
portation beyond county lines. The pro
portion of merchantable corn is 86 per
cent, making the quality of the crop
comparatively high, 80 being the average
percentage of merchantable in a series of
pea-rs The amount of wheat on hand is
*11 ver cent. of the crop, or about 12*2,
000,000 bushels, against 107,000,000 last
year, and 169,000,000 in March, 1885,
the largest surplus of the largest crop
ever grown. it is 3,000,000 bushels
more than in March, 1884, and 24,
000,000 bushels more than in 1882 after
the shortest crop of recent years. The
proportion held for local consumption is
194,000,000 bushels, and the proportion
to be shipped beyord county lines is
263,000,000bshels. The quality of the
arop is unusually good in the priiepal
wheat-growing sections, the average
weight being 58.5 pounds per bushel.
A Lase with a isttory.
The United States Supreme Court has
just rendered a decision in the case of the
heirs of Herman Speidle against Jacob
Henrici, brought on an appeal from the
United States Circuit Court for the Western
district of Pennsylvania which brings to
light an interesting' story. -
In 1801 Geo. Rapp, brought to this
country from Wurtemburg about 50 fami
liers-and settled on the banks of the Ohio
river about 20 miles from Pittsburg. The
company were known as the "Harmony
economists" and the town they fancied was
. called Economy. Rapp not only installed
himself as leader, but informed his follkw
ers that he was their prophet and that they
would jeopardize their salvation if they
failed to turn all their property over to the
~church, he being the self-iamc chur ch.
This was done and then the self-made
prophet issued another edict forbidding
marriage among his subjects. Everything
went smoothly with the colony, and they
flourished and were apparently happy until
the year 1831, when one of their number,
Herman Spiedel, revolted, went to Pitts
burg and married. It was to recover his
portion of the wealth of the "Economy"
society that his heirs brought suit. The
property involved is valued at $30,000,000
and as only about 15 families remaiu all
are in atfluent circumstances. Henrici, the
defendant in this suit, is now 80 years old.
Without going into the merits of the case,
as to whether the society was a proper one
or not. ihe Court held that the complain
ant, Speidel, having allowed his claim to
sleep for half a century, the Court must
Jhold his demand to be a stale claim, and
adlirm the decision of the Pennsylvania
Mr. Cleveland Talks Business.
The President has been talking about
1888. It happened in this way:
The subject of the inter-State commerce
commissionership was under consideration,
and the issue of polities was brought in.
.Th~.We question was whether a .certain gen

ihat 3Mr. Cleveland might not be his own
successor, in which even:t the one accept
ing the commissionership for the short
term would serve during the perplexing
and unsatisfactory period that the law was
being put in operationl, and would then, in
all probability, iand himself thrown out.

Reports on the Labor Quetilon.
Two interesting reports of legislative
committees appointed to investigate phases
of the labor question have been lately made
public. One is the report of the commit
'tee of the House of Representatives ap
pointed to inquire into the cause of the
We-tern railroad strikes; the other is the
report of the committee of the New York
Assembly. which has been investigating
the recent coal strike at New York. Both
coniitteus devote some space to a consid
cration of the rights and the limits of
action cf orzanized labor, and both agree
in takii.g a soand view of the matter. Their
conclusion is in effect that, while the right
of a mn or of bodies of men to refuse to
ibor for what they regard as unjust re
muneration is unquestionable, the right of
employers to determine what wages they
.hall pay is equally unquestionable, as is
the right of workmen who desire to keep
oof froni labor associations or combina
tions to dispose of their labor as they please
nd at what rates they please, and that any
this freedom of employers and unassoci
ated laborers is improper and unlawful.
The cougressional committee apparently
has no great confidence in the efficacy of

THE NEGRO IN POLITICS.
Some Sagacious Advice to she Cotered People
of the South.
To the Edilor of the Xcer. end Couricr:
Permit me to thank you for the kind 'er
gestion made to President Cleveland to ap
point me to the otice of Register of D)ecds
for the Distriet of Columbia, should the
Senate reject the nocination of Mr. Trotter.
as appeared in your issuse of the :,.1 inst.
I rejoice to see the time coming when inci
dents in the administration of political par
ties will show to the colored man, of the
South especially, that lie must regulate his
politics as white men do. to wit. according
to his best interests and the highest welfare
of the government.
I do not endorse much that the Demno
cratic party has done toward the negro, bt
I recognize the folly of dwelling upon i.
in the face of changed relationh4ips and a
new era in the South. The negro must
leet in the South that line of politics which
will give him protection in his rights. To
say to him that he cannot be protected is
bad as to deny him protection.
Fearing that some may say that this is
written to favor my nomination to the
o!lice, let me say that I know while I write
of Mr. Trotter's confirmation, anl am -;le
of it. Why should a negro Democrat be
objected to by Republicans and a white
accepted I cannot understand. The Repib
publican has done much good for the nc
gro; let it continue in well doing if it will.
but let it remember that its ward is a ian,
a citizen, a thinker and a politiciatn, like its
In the South it is of especial necessity
that the colored voter should be in co p

A P'rayer Sent Up for Reporters.
In the Senate this morning Chaplain
Allison 'startled the august body by
closing his prayer with a word for the
newspaper men. He said: "And now,
dear Lord, bless the reporters, -wnose
nimble pens catch our every word almost
before it is uttered. Like thyself, they
are omnipresent and almost omnipotent.
If we take the wings of the morning and
fly to the utmost parts of the earth they
are there. They meet us in the jumngles
of Africa; they waylay us in the solitary
canons of Colorado, and when at length
we find the latitude of the magnetic pole
behold they are there. May their sight
and goodness be equal to their power,
and when the general assembly of heaven
convenes let no reporter be excluded.
