The Reported Shortage.
It was stated to a representative of this
paper - y an official in a position to speak with
authority, that the rumors of a shortage in
the accounts of city Treasurer W. Alston
Pringle, Jr., are apparently unfounded, and
that no shortage whatever is known to exist.
Mr. Pringle is now going over his accounts,
and it is believed, and hoped by tbe entire
community that he will completely vindicate
himself, and prove the rumors false.
Tbe reports that have been circulated, and
the circumstances that oca&ioned them are
regretted by the entire community, and by no
one more than this paper.
All Democratic clubs meet for re-organiza
tion on Saturday, tbe 9th instant. It is im
portant that all voters who have not enrolled
to some club, do so on, or before that date.
The constitution of the party provides that
the club rolls shall constitute the poll list at
tbe primary election, and unless a man's
name is on the club roll 1 ?. cannot vote at tbe
Tbe Democratic Constitution adopted in
1890 provides for tbe election of delegates to
tbe County Convention as follows;
"County Democratic Conventions shall be
composed of delegates elected by the several
local clubs, one delegate for every twenty-five
members, and one delegate for a majority
fraction thereof, with the right to each Coon
ty convention to enlarge or diminish tbe rep
resentation according to circumstances."
It will be seen that tbe old custom of elect
ing a delegate at large from each club is done
sway with and the delegates elected will rep
resent the actual membership.

musical talent of the city was secured and the
iesult obtained was highly gratifying to all
The programme was too extended to notice
in detail, hence it can be spoken of in terms
of general commendation only, with one or
two notable exceptions.
Ttie vocal solo of Miss Daisy Bowman
quite a little girl, was so well renderd, and
with grace and selfpossession that would have
reflected credit upon an older person.
The exqusile execution of the two instru
mental solos by Mrs. Edward E. Rembert woo
the heartiest admiration and appreciation from
the entire audience.
Mrs. Henry Harby's talent as a vocalist
and her sweet pure voice are too well known
for it to be needful to say that her song was
more appreciated by music lovers than any
other number of the programme.
The instrumental duett by Mrs. L. B.
Durant and Miss Marian - ? was excellent,
a clever executior of a rather difficult musical

The Price of Cotton.
Tbe circular of Price, Reed k Adams, Cot
ton Merchants, Charleston, under dale of
April 1, after quoting the N. Y. market for
that day, 6 40@6 41, and same day one year
ago. 8 email@example.com, says:
Since our last report the market has
cootinued to show a declining tendency,
though varied by moments of strength,
caused, iu oor opinion, solely by tbe geueral
feeling that prices are low, and by tbe timidity
of bears to press their advantage. Tbe
statistical position of cotton has not changed,
and we fail to find any improvement in the
demand for spot cotton. At oue time this
week it looked as if we would again reach the
lowest poiut yet touched, but a silght reaction
set in, and the market this evening closes
steady, ata deciiue of 10 to 12 points ?rom
last Friday's prices.
There is no news of importance with regard
to tbe next crop, and with heavier receipts
expected ntxt week, we cannot see how any
present improvement can be more than tempo
rary. We believe there is enough cotton in
the country to swell tbe crop figures to at
least 9.000,060 baled, and unti! a reduction
of acreage can be counted 00 we have no
hope for higher prices.
We take great pleasure in informing our
friends, that the Charleston Cotton Exchange
is taking steps to introduce a future delivery
system here, which will make it easier to
dispose of cotton, and we trust will greatly
increase tbe spot business of Charleston. We
shall keep our friends informed of the pro
gress made, and shall be glad to make favor
able arrangements for business next Fall.
Spot Cotton.?The official market
quotation remaius unchanged, 6$c. for Mid
dling, but it is rumored that btgber prices
have been paid for quite a large line of cotton,
Our own orders from Europe would not
permit us to pay even tbe above figure

Washington, April 4, 1892
The black wings of the foul bird,
scandal sre flapping ominously over
this administration, which has been
lauded?by republicans?for its purity
and honesty?ever since it came into
power. No wonder that Mr. Harrison,
who, lo "render under Caesar that
which is Caesar's", is a man of great
personal parity and sterling honesty, is
shocked at some of the most recent
exposures. Any honest man would be.
And what makes the matter worse is
that promineot members of Mr. Harri
son own party have shown up some of
the worst things Nor instance, it was
a republican Senator?Manderson of
Nebraska?who on the floor of the
Senate proclaimed, and produced the
documents to prove that the authorities
of the lud?an Bureau have for several
months been trying to compel the army
officer, who is acting lud?an Agent
at Pine Ridge Agency, to accept and
distribute 120.000 pounds of bacon
which had been sent to the agency by a
Chicago contractor aod refused by the
army officer, because of its being unfit to
eat. How Mr. Harrison must enjoy
reading the letters from the saintly
Indian Commissioner (who signalized
his entrance into Office, several years
ag?. by creating a scandal, in connection
with saddling his wife's travelling on
the Government, besides getting her
a salary by appointing her his private
secretary,) to the honest army officer in
behalf of the dishonest contractor.
It was also a republican Senator?
Chandler of New Hampshire?who, as
chairman of the Senate committee on
Immigration, first directed public atten
tion to the fact that officials of the
Treasury department had authorized
the expenditure of $350,000 more than
there was any legal authority for
*pendiog, on the buildings, etc , at the
Government Immigrant Station on
Ellis Island, in New York Harbor, an
expenditure whioh the House and
Senate Committees on Immigration are
now jointly engaged in investigating,
for the purpose of placing the respon
sibility therefor upon some one official,
if possible. It cannot be charged that
politics bad anything to do with expos
ing either of these charming specimens
of official crookedness. The Pension
Office scandal Mr. Harrison has had
with him so long that he has probably
almost become accustomed to it ; but
some of Raun/s admissions, to say
nothing of the testimony of others to the
House Committee now engaged in
investigating that office, must have
made very interesting reading for Mr.
The first step towards the tariff re
form, which the democratic party will
ask the voters of the country to endorse
next November, will have been taken
when the House passes the Springer
free wool bill, this week, and others will
follow in due season. If the republican
Senate sees fit to refuse to pass these
bills, so much the worse for the repub
Silver rumors are thisk just now, pro
bably because of the agitation in the
Senate caused by the debate brought
on by Senator Morgan's resolution and
challenge to the Senators to define their
positions. In spite of all that is said it
is very doubtful whether the Senate will
go to the extent of voting on Senator
Stewart's free coinage bill. It certainr
ly will not, if the influence of the
administration is strong enough to
prevent it. The most interesting
rumor is one that says more than eighty
members of the House have entered
into ao agreement to filibuster con
tinuously on everything, except tariff
bills, unless the Committee on rules will
report another rule setting a date for
the consid?ration of the Bland free
coinage bill. Further than that saob a
request has been made of the Commit
tee, the rumor cannot be confirmed.
Superintendent of Immigration Owen,
the Indiana ex-Congressman whom
Assistant Secretary Netti e too has accus
ed of being unfit for bis place aod care
less, if not dishonest, in the handling of
vouohers for Uncle Sam's hard cash, has
endeavored to answer the charges by
throwing the blame for everything that
bas gone wrong in bis office on his
clerks, and by charging that General
Nettleton is trying, in the interests of
parties who opposed the creation of the
office of Superintendent of Immigration,
and has been from the time he (Owen)
took charge of that office, to throw
obstacles in the path of its work and
bring discredit upon it. It is esay
enough to believe that both of them are
telling the truth, republican officials are
such a queer lot. Mr. Harrison is will
ing, it is said, to sacrifice Owen, who is
his personal friend, and also Nettleton,
if that would settle the scandal; but he
has been told by members of both the
Honse and Senate Immigration Commit
tees that they iotended to probe the
whole matter to the bottom, whoever it
might hurt, so that he will probably
wait awhile before making any removals
or asking for any resignations.

SOME CHILDREN OF ADAM.
BY R. M. MANLEY.
A well-developed story, easily winning and
retaining tbe reader's attention to the end.
It is a vital contribution to the social study of
New York society, for it presents a picture of
American life that is most captivating to the
thoughtful reader. There'is such an atmos
phere of the reality over tbe uncommon hap
penings of tbe novel, the narrative shows
such careful study and shrewd observation of
metropolitan life that those who will notice
tbe types, distinct and interesting in their
personality, will at once recognize tbe verac
ity of the representation. For this reason it
will produce a profound impression wherever
New York iutiuence is predominant. Thou
sands, however, who wish to read tbe book
with tbe expectation to be entertained only,
will be fascinated by tbe magnetism of the
story, the charm of its language, its intricate
plot, its telling incidents, its strange coinci
dences, and its vigorous and at times thrilling
actious, revealing the inner life, pleasures,
intellectual pursuits, as well as the frivolities
of the wealthier classes of New York.
