The Commissioners appointed by the
Local Government to inquire into the
"history, causes, and effect" of the
coal mine fires of Picton County have
just finished taking evilence. The
commission is composed of Inspector
Gilpin, Deputy Inspector W. Madden,
Henry Mitchell, and A. Dick. The
work of the commission was directed
mainly to an investigation of the con
dition of the Foord pit. The mine
has been on fire in one place or an
other since the fifties, and it is burn
ing yet. Explosion after explosion
has occurred. and many lives have
been lost. Whea fire broke ont ir
one place the miners resorted to au
other, sinking a new shalt. To avoid
the fire on an upper level, a shaft wa;;
sunk and coal taken ont on the level
immediately below the fire. Soon the
fire came through, and again the min
ers were driven out. Nothin; that
the owners could do availed to dr:ve
out the fire, and the splendid mine has
been practically abandoned, thou.Ih :t
little coal is now being taken ont on a
level below a part that ison fire. The
object of the commission is to lenra
whether something cannot be doez To
save so valuable a property ws i lie

Syndicate Operations. Iuteresting
Gossip from the Nations Capitol.
Secretary Carlisle's as:zistaQt. are ov1r

memories must be short. Before er.h of the
other bond issues these sama protests were
made, but the bonds were r.iso issued.

worthy fgures. the syndicate made a proilt

SEPTEMBER COTT ON REPORT,
The Li .'-est Condition of the Plan
The September cotton report of the De
partment of! Agriculture shows a declin
from August in the condition of the ero
which Is 77.9 to 70.8 per cent., a declne<
7.16 points. This makes the lowest cond:
tion of the plant since 1881, when It was re
ported at 70 per cent. The next lowest sine
1881 was the condItion of 1893 when it stoot
for the same month at 73.4.
Cotton suffered severely during the mont:
of August from the drought which charactem
ized the early part of the month and oxces
aive rain which succeeded it. The presenc
of boll worms has worked great injury, an
the crop has been injured by shedding an
rust. The causes men'ioned by Texas coz
respondents for the deterioration in th
State are as follows: Drought, hot weather
floods, boll worms, sharp shooters, Mexica
wavil, caterpillars, army worms a-nd weedt
There Is striking unanimity in the pessimis
tic tone by correspondents throughout alt o
the cotton raising States.
The State averages are as follows: Virgir
ia, 84; North Carolina. 79; South Carolin;
81; Georgia, 81; Florida, 79: Alabama, 7~
Mississippi, 77; Louisiana, 75; Texas, 50, A

Fall Trade Opening More Favorably
at the South.
Bradstreet's report for the past week says:
rhe week is characterized in trade circles
)y an unexpected, but no less pronounced,
mprovement, South and West. This is
-eflected at the markets from which supplies
irc distributed to these regions.
At the South, fall trade is opening tip more
treely than anticipated, with marked im
provement in business and increased confl
ience as to the outlook at Jacksonville. At
lanta and Augusta. The imiprovernent in
ron has had ari influence at Birmnglhaa
and throughout the trib,tary region, all evi
Jenve of which is found in thp tempo'rary in
ability ofBirminqham wjol1te'rs to rmt-ut
the demand for hardware and grocer-is.
Aside from the lirmnuss of ,tt-in goods
iriecs, which is a feature in trit cierles
Nrth and East, the iost e.ospicius
novement is the continued activity in iron
and steel. highest quotations yi reached
having no efo-et in restricting demand. At
Chicago relatively more orders are received
rr.m the South and Southw.est than ever
before. Revised estimates from Texas point
to only halt a a tton crop: but trade is Pc
tive and the outlook favorabl beemw::e of .1
greater relative increase in the price of cot.
ton than the reduction in out-turn.
The Louisiana sugar crop is reported
from 15 per cent. to 20 per cent. smaller
than that of last year.
The tendenevy to re-action In prices, par
ticularly among food stal-les, contiuues,witb
further liquidati(ns in wheat. Indian corn,
pork, lard and sugat. 1le-n"tions are re
ported fn prices for cotton and1 hides. On
the other hand higher coal prices have ap
peared at New York and Philadelphia and
the prospect is for furthe:. advances all along

TnE LATEST ABOUT THE ISvEsTIGATION.
The State Department at Washington Is
without advices regarding the alleged latest
phase of the Chinese situation in regard to a
refusal of the ( hinese government to exe
cute any of the men convicted of being par
ticipants in the missionary massacre unless
they are assured that upon the execution of
these men all other demands will cease. Ac
cording to the latest information of the De
partment, the Kucheng commission was at
work with its labors uncompleted, and zt
investigation had not been begun. No dis
patches have been received from Minister
Denby, but they are expected this week and
are awaited with interest.

We had been reliably informed that J. P.
Baly, of Warsaw, Dublin Co., N. C., had
been eur'd of c'onsumpt:ion, and sent a re.
porter to see him aad make a report belier
ing that the facts would be welcome to m-an
raers of this paper. We foun-i Mr. Baile3
strong in the belief ti.at he ha.1 had con.
sumption, though his physician, Dr. W. P
E enndy, stated the case in a little differen
way. The doctor said:
"~Mr. BaIey was suffering from overwor
and chronic malarial poisoning, withi some
of he symptoms of chronic rheumatism and
a general rn-down condition of his system.
"Boils prevented him from work a part o
the time. Bronchitis and. spitting of bloot
were sources of great annoyance to him."
t is probably true that the doctor was cor
ret, though without doubt Mr. Bailey woul
eventually have gone into consumption, as
this disease frequently follows the symptoms
and conditions above given. He was thor
oughly cured, however. Mr. Bailey said t<

To Use the Earth's IleA.
One of the schemes for future en
gineers to work at, says an article i1
Curret-i, Literature, will be the sink
ng of a s!--ft 12,00) to 15,000 feet
into the earth for the purpose of util
izing the central heat of the glob,.
It is said that such a depth is by no
means impossible with the improved
machinery and advanced methods of
the coming engineer. Water at a
temperature of 200 degrees centigraile,
which can; it is said, be obtained
from these deep boring,; would not
only heat houses and pnblio buildings,
butwould furnish power that could
be utilized for many purvoses. Hot
water already at han,l is necessarily
much cheaper than that which must
be taken when cold and brought n-,
to the required temperature. Once
the shaft is sunk, all ccst in the ite:n
of the hot water supply ceases. The
pipes, if good, will last indetinitely,
and, as nature's stokers never allow
the fire to go out, there would come in
the train of this arrangement many
advantages. When, by sinking a
shaft in the earth, we can secure a
perpetual heating apparatus which %e
can regulate by the turning of a key,
one trial of life will fade into nothin.
It is now a law in Pecunylvania that
no sectarian garb shall be worn by
teachers in the public schools.
