8,900,000 BALES IS
Statistician at Washington
Makes an Estimate.
BASED ON MANY REPORTS
Continued Investigations Leave No
Doubt That the Cotton Crop Is Even
Smaller Than Indicated In Previous
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12.-The statis
tician of the department of agriculture
reports 8,900,000 bales as the probable
cotton production for tb United States
for 1899-1900. This eslimate is based
upon a larger number of both general
and epecial reports than has ever before
been received by the department in con
nection with a cotton crop.
While weather conditions during the
past 30 days have been mainly favorable
to whatever picking remained to be
done, so that the general condition of
the crop is slightly better than one
month ago, continued investigations
leave absolutely no doubt that the crop
is even smaller than was indicated in
either of the statistician's previous re
The estimated productive area is as
Virginia, 47; Louisiana, 1,179; North
Carolina, 1,220; Texas, 6,642; South
Carolina. 2,212; Arkansas, 1.726; Geor
gia, b,268; Tennessee, 816; Florida. 149;
Oklahoma, 199; Alabama, 2,882; Indian
Territory, 299; Mississippi, 2,874; Mis
souri, 77. Total, 23,522.
This is 5.8 per cent less than the past
The estimated yield in pounds of lint
cotton per acre is as follows:
Virginia, 120; North Carolina. 193;
South Carolina. 165; Georgia, 159; Flor
ida, 94; Alabama, 126; Mississippi, 209;

LARGE BLAZE IN AUGUSTA.
Million Dollars Worth of Property
Reduced to Ashes.
AUGUSTA, Ga., Dec. 12.-This city was
yesterday visited by the most disastrous
fire in its history. The loss is estimated
How the blaze originated no one
knows. It was discovered in the heart
of J. B. White's big drygoods house and
spread rapidly to adjoining buildings.
The Central hotel property was razed
to the ground. Nothing remains but
the front wall on Broad street with its
empty and smokebegrimed windows.
The Masonic hall has only the front
wall standing to mark its site, and but
a fragment of the outside walls of the
Arlington hotel on the front and on
Jackson street mark the place where
Augusta's bast hotel stood.
Schneider's corner is smoked and
scarred, but not destroyed, though it is
probable the gutting of the rearof the
building will mean that it will give
way to one far handsomer in its place.
At the other end of the burnt district
the Dorr building is partly gutted and
badly damaged in the rear, but is prac
tically intact in front.
MINERS ARE IN SESSION.
Officers Declare For Open War en the
Knights of Labor.
BIRxMGH AM, Ala., Dec. 1Z) - The
state convention of the United Mine
Workers of America convened here
today with about 100 delegates present.
The feature of the morning session
were addresses by President G. W.
Young and National Executive Com
mitteeman William Fairley, both of
whom condemned the imprisonment of
National Committeeman Reese in Kan
sas and declared for an open war on the
Knights of Labor in Alabama.
The grievance against the Knights of
Labor is that members of that order
took the places of striking members of
the United Mine workers in Walker
The convention is expected to adopt
resolutions condemning the Knights of
Labor and a long drawn out fight be
tween the two orders is expected.
Master Workmon O'Keefe of the
Knights of Labor says that if the
United Mine workers in Alabama inau
gurate war on his organization he will
make it a national conflict.
State Liquor Commissioner Will Re
tain His Position.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. .-A little
more than a month ago J. B. Douthit,
state liquor commissioner, was dis
missed under disgrace by the board of
control by a vote ef 3 to 2. There was
talk by the majority of having criminal
proceedings begun by the attorney mn
eral The charges were selling contra
band liquor and changing labels of
goods sent from the dispensary, making
it sell for more than it was worth at
that time. Douthit was allowed 15
minutes to clear himself.
Douthit employed counsel and ob
tained an order from Judge Aldrich di
recting the board so give him a triaL.
After several postponements, occasioned
by the wounding of J. Ludley Haselden
at Sellers, the board met yesterday to
try the case.
Haselden was one of the majority
who ousted Douthit. Thursday night
at a secret meeting he offered resolu
tions withdrawing the charges and re
ferred the matter to the legislature.
The board would not agree to this. Yes
terday when the case was called, with
out taking testimony, the board, by a
vote of 3 to 1, Haselden standing alone,
vindiated Donthis, who retains his po
The inference of the extraordinary
action is that those who followed Hasel
den formerly, since the breastplate
revelations have decided that is is good
politics to go the opposite way.
