Secretary Hoster's Now Orleans cot
ton exchange annual report was issued
a few days ago. He puts the cotton
crop of 1899 1900 at 9,436,416 bales, a
decreate of 1,838,124 under 1898-91. Of
this hi says that Texas, including
Indian Territory, shows a falling oil of
964,000, the group of other Gulf States,
consisting of Louisiana, Arkansas,
MIusissippi, Tennessee, Oklahoma,
Utah and Kansas, 400,000, and thbe At
lantic Statos, consisting of Alabama,
Georgia, Florida, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Kentucky and Vir
ginia, 475,000. He places the average
commercial value of ti crop at 38.55
dollars per balo againt,. 25.08 dollars
last yeAr, 28 62 dollars year before last
and 36.76 dollars In 1816-67, and the
total value of the crop $363,785,000
against $282,773,000 last year and $322,
553,000 the year before. H calls at
tention to the fact that the uoney
value of the cotton crop just marketed
in $81,012,000 over the 1898-99 crop,
which was -1,838,00U bales more. He
puts the total spindles in the South at
6,267,163, an increase over last year of
1,315,071. These include 1,418,497 now,
not complete. The not gain in the
number of Southern mills over last
year has been 113. making the total
new 663, and the consumption has boon
divided as follows :
Alabama, 147,922 bales, an incesase
Arkansas, 2,380 bales, a decreaso of
Georgia, 339,110 bales, an increase of
Kentucky, 27,539, an increase of 697.

Total consumption of cotton iln tile
South 1,597,112, an increase of 1117,713
In reference to the general manu
facturing industry of the country and
its coiparative progress North and
South, he says that up to within sixty
or ninety days an activo demand pre
vailed for manufactured goods, and

ties brought this activity to a sudden
halt, but not irtil the amount of cotton
consumed had reached a figure in ex
cess of any year on record. lie puts
the consumption of Northern mills at
2,300,000 bales, which, together with
that of the South, makes an aggregate
for the entire country of 3.897,000 bales

In his special report on Southern
consunmption, made up from actual re
turns of all the mills In the South, ho
says the facte in relation to consump
tion andl increase of spindles durIng
the year are phenomenal. Nearly
every h-other'n State hasR entored the
field and in all except Kentucky and
Missouri new mills are being erected
and numbers of others are projected
with certainty of buildling In the near
future. Year by year~ old and anti
qjuated concerns have been dlismantled
or remodeled and the Southern cotton
factories of to-day are of the newest
and latetimproved machinery capable
of performing the best and greatest
amount of work at a minimum cost,.
How the Indastry has advanced he
shows by yearly comparisons from
1890--9l, showIng an Increase f rom 3:36
mills in that year to 663 on September
1, 1900, a gain of 327 mills, lie goes
on to state that inteorestIng as the
above showing is, the facts are even
better emphasized by the record of
spindles and consumption In the South,
cornparisons of which are carried back
as far as 18(10. They are:

One of the most; Interesting featuros
of Mr. Lestor's report is a showing of
the world's consumption of American
cottoti for tho past two seasons. which
he puts at 11,022,000 for iM19-o00, and
10,7t8,000 for 1898-1899. ie0 quotes a
dIispatch to him from Mr. Thomas
l'llison, at Liverpool, the distinguished
statisticuln, in which that authority
places the urplus mill stock in .'uropo,
of all kinds of cotton, at the close of
August, 1900, at 530,000 bales;80,0U of
which he credits to the mills of Great,
Blrtain and 150,000 to those of the con
tinen. Of these totals Mr. 'lilson ap
proximates the E'.ngllsh itills hold
U-1,000 American and the continontal
mill :1:1 2,000. Mr. Hester makes the
total visiblo and invisiblo supply of
Aimorican cotton it tho world on Sop
temier 1, 1900, 1,118,000, against 3,896,.
000 last year, a decrease of 1,778,000,
and the total visible and Invisible
supply of all kinds of cotton In the
world on September 1, 11100, 1,723,000,
against 3,701,000 last year, a decreaseo
of 1,978.000. lie figures out that ap
proximately thore are 111.0U0 bales of
old cotton now left over in the South
Ern country, Including the stocks of
Southorn mills, andi approximtates the
actual growth at 11,101,000. lie gives
receipts of new cotton of the crop of
1900-11101 at delivery ports at 22,620,
and says this Is considerably under the

but they are still blowing the same old
horn. They are hard up, however.
Somo of the hounds haum lost, the trail,
and all are scattered and thero is no

corrupt, Democratic administration in
that city. The Akron horror called
for another solution, and now they
boast, that, they saved the nigger, but
if it had been down South he woild
have boon lynched with Sam Hose
tortures. A latu paper ient mc as
a marked copy says that Southern
mobocracy has crossed th !Inc and is
affecting the lower classes up North,
just as a contagion sipruads in unhealthy
rogiuns. It all comes from the South,
and there is no quoat antine to arrest its
progress. That's bad and sad. 1, it

But seriously we must warn our good
negroes not to cross thbe lin. It is
dfangerous. K00ep away from Pana

Idleness is your curse. if I had my

would empower thu town marshals and
the country comstables to arrest every

Wo old moa know that one good
whipping has more elfect on a bad
negro than live years in tbo chaingang.
blvcn a hanging is glory, for they are
going straight to Heaven.
Last Saturday night, a tramp negro
cut the slat from the blind of MI r.
Gary's house and opened it and craw led
In and stole his paternal gold watch
and his pocket, book within three fOot
of his head, while he was sleeping. No
doubt he was armed, and would have

resisted. The negro took a night
freight and was arrestd at K ingston,
and the watch was recovered, but lie
got away. Wo havO got to (10 somethilg

in thu South, and thoy know it. .J im
Sinmith Is tibe biggest farmiie' in the
State, and he says thro Is no labui in
the world equal to that of well
regulated negroes, and he knows.
But, the spirit of mobocracy is not
eontilned to the racC prIolICm up
North. The lynching last Saturday at
Gillman, in Illinois, was against an old,
defenseless white woman-a doctress,
who was supeetud of causing a young
girl's death by malp ac.tllce, biu, who
had not had a trial, nor had any
intention to harm the erring girl. A
mob o! 250 men attacked her house In
the night, and she defenulcd hurself
and her home and killed and wounded
as many as the could. They mortally
wounded her and burned her house.
What kind of civilization is -that ?'
Why dident they hunt up the man
who ruined the girl ' Our ci vilization
