FOOLS PLAYING WITH FIRE.
Senator Tillman Warns Republicans of
Their Folly. -An Eloquent and
Washington, February 24.-The
Indianola, Miss., postoffice case oc
cupied the major portion of the time
of the Senate to day. Senator Till
man spoke for three hours, in con
tinuation of his remarks begun yes
terday on the race question, and was
followed by Senator Carmack, of
Senator Tillman, in his speech,
said that in dealing with the Indian
ola postoffice the President and
Postmaster General transcended their
authority and resorted to methods
which were both tyrannical and un
constitutional. He wanted to know
if in.figuring up the purpose of their
new born zeal "this cold-blooded,
calculative, advisedly taken action"
was not prompted by a low motive.
He charged that 800,000 negroes are
coercing fifty millions of white peo
pie in the North to deal with seven
teen million White men in the South
in the intereAt of the eight million
ignorant negroe? in that section.
He referred to the cost in lives
and money.on account of the race
problem in this country, and, address
ing the Republicat side, called on
them to meet him "upon the same
plane of patriotism, of race pride
and of civilization, and not to fall in
to the pitiful cesspool of partisan
politics." He read extracts from the
letter of the President written some
time since covering his views with
respect to appointments of negroes
to office. He said, but the views
"How little and small and infinites
imal," he said, "is the knowledge be
hind such a view."
He added that the people of the
North have no more use for the
negro at close garrters than be had.
He cited instances of assaults by
negroes on white men, and declared
that the more the Northern people
find out about the negro the less use
they have for him. The ballot of the
p/agro, he maintained, wa4 a menace
to good government and the people
of the North are coming to realize
that the enfranchisement of him
bordered on a crime.
Reverting to the President's asser
tion that he was unwilling to shut
the doc.r of hope and opportunity in
the taco of a worthy and competent
colored man, Senator 'l'iliman said
that at. th tirit blIush there is not a
man alive wh'lo .nild tot hagree withI
thbat sent iment, but h~ iniqinr'd if it
occurred to anyo1 that' mji i pi'i'it
that door of ho1'e it muihti no: t'.

said, to his Statt to)5 st n fo)rwIird
opposed to anty manner of pol it ical
or social equalit.y ont thi part of the
negro with he whites. Continuing,
he referred to the adloption of the
fifteenth anmendment to thle Constitu
tion. "Whlen you remorselessly
stand by that," said1 he, "arid say it
is sacred, yotu force uis to( face the
alternative of a confli *t of races.''
The purpose of those who endorse
the President's door o'f hopo policy,
he declared, is that in Sotuth Claroli

there would lbe more blood shed than
was ever shed before.
"I beg you, for God's sake," he
said, facing the Republican side,

hatred, which will bring the two
races togethor with thie resolve, of

Senator TLillman said his riewspat
per friends always took great pains
to quote evaerything he had aid that
was "hot," leaving out everything
that was rational, decent and sane in
their pursuit of senst;tions, and in
this respect a great wrong had been
done him. "A lie," he said, "never
had any particular truth," and he
would not attempt to make even a
start to run down those that have
been told on him.
Senator Tallman said he did not
want to see the African driven to the
wall, and he did not want to shut the
door of hope in his face, but he could
not consent to the dominance of that
people over the whites.
Senator Tillman then poked fun
at Senator Hanna and read the title
of the bill he recently introduced to
pension ex-slaves. "Oh, my God!"
said he, "did Senator Hanna mean
that, or is it a political dodge?" The
effect of the bill, was, he declared, to
giv,. opportunity to unscrupulous
negroes to bamboozle and deceive
their people by securing sobscrip.
tions ostensibly to further the inter.
eats of the bill. He concluded by
saying that "in proportion as you
arouse false hope in the minds of
these people you are only sowing the
wind which will flame up into a
whirlwind later on."
Senator Tillman spoke for three
hours. He was followed by Senator
Carmack, of Tennessee, who said the
action of the President in the In
dianola case was not in accordance
with reason, justice or the Constitu
He said that if the closing of the
Indianola postoflice is to be taken as

FORTUNE IN COTTON.
New Napoleon Entered Market and Reaped
Millions.-A Great Fight Between
the Bulls and Bears.
(N. Y. Herald.)
In the cotton markets of the
United States for the last week there
has been aaged one of the greatest
campaigns in the history of the trade.
The centre of the conflict is located
in the pit of the New York cotteu
exchange and there the bittGre't
struggles have occurred mainly.
E,th day prices have moved up, to
the discomfort and route of the bears,
but they- have not lost heart and
they continue to struggle valiantly.
The clashing force consists on the
one side of New England manufac
turers and dealers, assisted by a
strong pool of New Orleans cotton
merchants. These represent the
bulls on the market. On the other
are numerour veteran merchants in
this city and Boston men whose opin
ions have been the dominating forces
in the cotton markets for many years
The Napoleon of the cotton bulls
of the present campaign is a man,
comparatively new to the cotton
trade. He took up the leadership of
the struggle just at a time when the
recongnized leader of the bull forces
stepped aside and announced "That
the apogee of the cotton market had
been reached." Even his enemies,
the bears, admit. that he has a perfect.
command over the markets of the
day in this city and in New Orlea.
This Napoleon of cotton is Daniel
J. Sully. lie is a member of the
New York cotton exchange and
makes his headquarters in this city
at the oflice of S. M. Weld & Co.,'
through which firm practically his
transact ions are cleared. Since spot
cotton touched ten cents a pound,
and the prices for cotton for delivery
in March and May have bordered on
that figure, numerous reports have
been circulated telling of the profits
of the bulls. Some of these reports,
which are given credence in well-in.
formed circles, states that the New
England clique, with which Mr.
Sully is associated, has cleared ap
proximately $3,000,000. Mr. Sully
himself is credited with making more
than a half million dollars, in the
campaign, which, however, to his
own statements, has not ended.
It is estimated that on the upturn
in the market in which prices ad
vaniced from 8 cents to 10 cents a
pound, the Sully pool carried over
500,000 bades of cotton.
A cent a pond( in cot1 ton isn us'u al
ly reckoned as anl advane of $5 a
Thern has been an advance of $10
a bale in th pruicle since Mr. Sully
took up the leadership which was
dleposod from the shoulder of Tho
doro H. Price by his ownI desire.
This represents an advance of $5,
(000,000 ini the vatlue of thre cortton
held by the New England piool. Of
their holdiogs, however, a part has
been rsold anid bought, accord inrg to
the exigenlcies ofi the marrket.
