We have heard with regret, the re
moval of Mr. L. I. Parrott, as steno
grapher of the Third Circuit. Mr.
Parrott has made many friends
throughout the Circuit, and when
they learn that he loses his place for
no cause of complaint, but only to
give place to Judge Buchannan's
brother-in-law Mr. G. D. Tillman Jr.,
his friends will feel that he has not
been treated altogether right. Judge
Buchannan has the power to appoint
a stenographer for his Circuit tis true,
but we are surprised at his action in
this particular case. As far as we
know, Mr. Parrott has filled his posi
tion satisfactory to the bar and the
bench, and we have never heard of
any cause for his removal, other than
to make a place for a relative. We
are indeed sorry Parrott lost the po
sition upon which he depended to
support his family, and we are sorry
Judge Buchannan thought it proper
to give his brother-in-law, who is a
single man, the place.
We are constantly being asked for
advise about cotton, and it often em
barrasses us, for the reason that sev
eral years ago, there was a ccndition
very similar to that existing now, and
we advised, the holding of cotton.
Every sign pointed to a short crop,
and the indications were very favor
able to high prices; many people, did
hold their cotton and by doing so
suffered severe losses. There exists
a condition right now, which points
to a short crop, and gives indication
of good price, nevertheless, a burnt
child is afraid of fire, and we would
not advise any man to hold his cotton.
We honestly believe the sooner the
cotton is put on the market the bet
ter it will be for the producer. Cot
ton markets at best, are treacherous,
and the sufferer is the man who
toiled to make cotton. We are anxious
for the people to get every cent pos
sible for the product but we cannot
advise the~holding of a single bale.
~Sell it as soon as you can get it ready
in our opinion is the safest rule to
adopt..

Mr. J. M. Wilson, who has been

I have seen several articles in your
editorial columns recently on the tax
question, ard I heartily agree with
what you have said; I do not think
the people are in a position to stand
an additional levy for any purpose,
and I venture to say, the man in
South Carolina, who can devise some
means to materially reduce taxes, and
still pay the goverment expenses, can
carry the taxpayers with him. It is
doubtless true that there is more than
one reason why our taxes are high,
but I wish to state that I have been
been informed that only 80 cotton
seed licenses bought in this county
since the license law has been in
force, I am told about 8 years. I
believe, that if every one who has
bought seed cotton in this county in
violation of the law, had paid the li
cense, the county would have been
out of debt Ibelieve itis the County
Supervisor's business to look after
this matter. Is he doing his duty?
I am further informed that some buy
their license when the season is far
advanced, and one person bought
last year 1898 on the 15th, day of
December the last loneful day on
which to buy, in order that the li
cense might be valid; and still anoth
er bought in January, 1899. Now, it
appears to a man "up a tree," these
licenses were bought so late in the
season and out of season, through an
over sight, or negligence on the part
of the buyer, or for fear of being re
ported, by some one to the grand
jury. In fact I am informed that one
of the parties were reported to the
grand jury, then sent and paid up to
keep from being hauled up. Did the
grand jury do their duty? Has the
Clerk of Court the right to issue li
censes between the 15th of Decemn
ber and the 15th of August can
he issue a license on the 15th of
Dec. the last day of the season,for any
one may buy seed cotton from then
until Aug. 15th with out license, with
out some suspicion? And when he
does that, he issues a license to run
one year from date, which will be
cotton buyer has bought cotton for
two seasons on one license. There
appears to be something wrong some
how, somewhere. For a person to
buy seed cotton with out first procur
ing a license, is a violation of the law
and it is as much a violation for him
to buy for one day without it, as it
is for his neighbor to buy one year
without it. "The chain is no strong
er than its weakest link."
It is wrong because, he has an un
fair advantage of his competitor, and
it i, wrong, because the taxpayers are
cheated out of wbat belongs to them
according to law.
If you say, it is a bad law, and
should be repealed, I agree with you,
and I beliEve it was your good self
who labored so earnestly to rid us of
it during the last sitting of the Ge n
eral Assembly, but only succeeded in
getting it through the Senate.
While it is a law let's all respect it,
and those who will not, force them
to do so. And now, if I have been
misinformed as to what I have stated,
any man may go to the records and
examine for him self, both my infor
mant and I are ready to apologize.

MISTRIAL IN DELEGAL CASE.
Jury Unable to Agree After iemain
ing Out All Nlah.
DARIEN, Ga., Sept. 8.--From 9 o'clock
yesterday morning till 6 p. m. the case
Df the state versus Henry Dolegal,
harged with assault on a white woman,
was being tried. The trial was con
ucted strictly in private, no one being
permitted to enter the courtroom except
those connected with the case.
The defense did not put up a single
witness, while the state had three, viz.:
Troop Wallace, father of the woman
who claims to have been assaulted, the
woman herself, Matilda Hope by name,
ind Dr. P. S. Clark.
About 3 o'clock the evidence was com
pleted and the judge granted a short re
xss for dinner, after which the counsel
for both sides argued the question till 6
o'clock, when, the case being rested,
Judge Seabrook after a short charge
permitted the jury to retire.
Some thought a very few minutes
would suffice for a verdict to be agreed
n, while others thought differently. The
latter proved to be correct, as the jury re
mained out from 6 p. m. yesterday till
9 a. m. this morning. The judge was
then sent for and told that the jury
stood seven to five for conviction with
no hope of any nearer agreement. Judge
Seabrook then declared a mistrial and
appointed next Wednesday as the day
for another trial.
As has already been stated, Delegal's
sons and wife, charged with the mur
der of Joseph Townsend, will be tried
in Effingham county next Wednesday
under the grant of a change of venue
mud Henry Delegal will take his second
trial at that session of court.
Judge Seabrook has certainly shown
his desire to avoid unneccessrry delay
~nd expense to state and county by a
promptness in calling these terms of
court and a close attendance upon his
duties. His action all through the
matter calls for admiration.

BELT LINE FOR ATLANTA.
[ocal CapitalIsts Will Build a Road
Around the City.
ATLANTA, Sept. 8.-A company, with
plenty of money, and bomnposed of some
>f the most prominent men of the city,
will soon apply to the state of Georgia
for a charter to construct a belt line of
railroads extending completely around
the city and touching at various points
with the different railroads entering
Atlanta. It will have double tracks,
mnd the roadbed will be made flrstclass
n every particular.
The main object of the belt line will
be to allow the transfer of freight cars
around the city instead of through the
business portions as at present. When
the line is built, and satisfactory ar
rangements are made, Atlantians will
be troubled with no more freight cars in
the center of the town except those that
contain goods for the business sections.
The grade crossing evil is one that
has been considered a serious drawback
to the city for many years, and the
prospects of its early elimination will
be greeted with delight. Numbers of
people have been killed and injured at
the Whitehall, Loyd and Pryor street
rrossings, to say nothing of the count
less delays to traffic and business re
sulting from the switching of freight'
trains there every day.
