BILKING THE BOLL WEEYIL
The Task That the Convention of,
Southern Farmers has Before lt.
Kew Orleans, Dec. 5.-The Nation?
al Boll Weevil Convention" to be held
at Shreveport, Louisiana, Dec 12 to
lath, and which will be attended by
* * delegates from many states both east
and west of the Mississippi River,
?has cat out for it, a task, the success
of which means the salvation, and the
failure of which means possibly the
eventual destruction or serious curtail?
ment of the South's great staple. Tbis
subject will be discussed in a far
broader and more comprehensive man?
ner than ever before in the effort to
find ways and means to check the east
. ward progress of the weevil over
Southern cotton nelda.
Preparations have been made to
have present many cf-the most dis?
tinguished scientist of tbe country to
confer with th? praciicalplanters and it
is believed some substantial benefit
will result and a device will be found
to check if sot totally eliminate the
pest whih threatens the very life of
Southern prosperity.
Planters, cotton men, spinners and
statisticians are agreed that this
season's cotton crop, favored in every
possible way by ideal weather, has
taxed the labor and the acreage of
the South to the utmost degree. The
perfect combination of circumstances,
which may not be duplicated in a
generation, has resulted in a record
breaking crop.? Undoubtedly, tbe
spinners will consume far more cotton
this season than ever before ia the
history of the industry, and jost so
long as the South continues to supply
all the cotton the spinners require no
... very strenuous or sweepingly concert?
ed effort will be made to make india,
frica or Australia big cotton produc?
ers.
The rapid encroachment of the boll
weevil, however, is having a very se?
rious effect on the confidence of foreign
spinners who, ?oeking ahead several
years, are wondering where their sup?
plies of raw cotton are to come from
when the boll weevil will have devas?
tated ail the fields west and possibly
east of tbe Mississippi, as they bave
done in Southern Texas, arid when the
American mills shall have greatly in?
creased their annual takings.
Every yea the wor rid requires in?
creased quantities of clothing, and
the manufacturers of dry goods re?
quire increased quantities of raw cot?
ton.
For a hundred years to come the
South can and will produce all the
cotton the world will require, pro?
vided the progressive ravages of the
boll weevil be checked. In tbe boll
weevil infested districts ten acres in
many instances fail to yield one bale
of cotton. Experte assert this will be
the condition of the entire cotton belt,
unless some successful method of de?
stroying the boll weevil be found im?
mediately.
Governor Vardaman, of Mississippi,
whose recent telegram. to President
Francie of tbe Louisiana Purchase
Exposition in regard to President
Roosevelt bas can sed widespread
comment, will preside over the delib?
es ti ons of the co nv end OD.
The deepest interest ia the coming
convention is being taken hy leading
citizens throughout the South, and by
the Northern and foreign cotton inter?
ests.
Success will mean much to the
Sot tb. but should the delegates fail
to find a remedy for the boll weevil
evil, it will mean notbiag less than
calamity to the cotton industry af the
South within a very few years. There?
fore many prominent mes, wbo have
given the matter deep thought, are
personally urging the various sections
of the several states to send full dele?
gations to Sbrevenport on December
12th.

60V. HEYWARD WANTS NO CHANGE.
The Child Labor Law of 1903 is in
His Opinion the Solution Satis?
factory to Ali Parties.
Gov. Heyward is not in favor of
making any changes in the child la?
bor law. This is evident from the fol?
lowing letter which he wrote yester?
day to Dr. A. J. McKellway, assis?
tant secretary of the National Child
Labor association, with offices a?
Charlotte, N. C. :
My Dear Dr. McKelway: I am in
receipt of your letter of the 29th ulti?
mo, which reached my office during
my absence, and this is the first oppor
tunitv I have bad to sive it my at
I teution. It is needless for ine to tell
you that I have read your communica
! tion with great interest. The phases
of the subject you discuss are of seri?
ous import to the south, and especial?
ly is this true of South Caroliua,
where the magnitude of our cotton
mill interetss is greater than that of
j any other southern State.
For several years the question of
child labor in the cotton mills was
seriously discussed by the people of
! our State and the consideration given
"to the subject showed that its impor?
tance was fully realized. In my cam?
paign for governor two years ago I
advocated the settlement cf this ques?
tion by the passing of a law known as
"The Marshall Bill," this law prohi?
biting, the first year, all children un?
der 10 years of age from working in
?the cotton mills, with similar
resrtictions, respectively, the
second and third years, for children
? under ll and 12 years of age.
At the annual session of onr gen?
eral assembly in 1903 such a law was
j enacted and has been effective from
that time. This law is giving gener
I al satisfaction alike to mill owners and
I to ?he operatives, and no complaints
i from any source regarding its admin?
istration have.reached my office.
. I believed when the law was passed
! -and I believe now, taking eveything
into consideration-that such legisla?
tion was the best solution of the ques?
tion. I was much gratified that a law
regulating this most important ques?
tion could be so framed as ro meet the
wishes of ali those most interested in
its passage and in its results, as I
deemed it essential that the matter
should be permanently settled. I have
every reason to believe that satisfac?
tion with this law in our State contin?
ues and I cannot but think that it
would be unwise to disturb existing
conditions by increasing the age
limit from 12 to H years, as is sug?
gested in yonr letter.
While these are my convictions re?
garding this law, I must admit that
the educational aspect of your propos?
ed plan appeals to me most strongly.
Should any change be made, however,
it is my belief that such change
should include our entire educational
system, thus bringing, not only our
coildren in the mills, but all the chil?
dren in our State, under its provis?
ions. You have my full sympathy in
che important work before "you andi
sincerely trust whatever may be done
will be alike beneficial to the interest
of all concerned. Believe me,
Very truly yours.
D. C. Heyward, Governor.

This Year's Cotton Crop.
Washington, Dec. 5. -The report of
the department of agriculture today
indicates a total production of cotton
in the United States in the year 1904
05, amounting to 12,162,700 bales.
The area picked or to be picked is
estimated at 30,055,700 acres, a reduc?
tion of 1,676,600 acres or 5.3 per cent
from the acreage estimated as planted.
The report says that from present in?
dications the average weight of bales
is not likely to fall below 500 pounds
net. Round bales have been included
in this estimate and reduced to their
equivalent in square bales. The esti?
mate does not include linters.
The estimated production in bales,
by States, is as follows :
Virginia 19,300: North Carolina
609,000; South Carolina 1,099,700:
Georgia 1,764,000; Florida 77,200;
Alabama 1,278,900; Mississippi 1,
538,800: Louisiana 917,900; Texas
2,992,300; Arkansas 32,700; Tennessee
343,000; Missouri 43,900; Oklahoma
246,000; Indian Territory 398,100.
Georgia Banker Disappears.
Macon, Ga., Dec. 6.-Marion W.
Potter, a young man who is cashier
of banis at Davisboro, Glenwood and
Helena, Ga., has mysteriously disap?
peared, and his books, which have
been checked up by an expret show a
shortage of something like $15,000. It
is said that the amount may exceed
$20,000 upon further examination.
A feature of the defalcation is that
al of tbe alleged crookedness in the
accounts seems to have been accom?
plished within 90 days before it was
discovered and the officials are won?
dering what disposition Potter made
of the money in so short a time.
It is thought that he did not take
with him more than 85,000.
Congressman Lever Notified of

CHINESE EXCLUSION.
Mew Treaty is Strict. Yet Objec?
tionable Features of Oid One
are Eliminated.
Washington, Dec. S.-The period of
the convention between the United
States and China by which the Chi?
nese are excluded from this country
expires today, bnt by mutual agree?
ment its provisions will remain oper?
ative until the new treaty arranged by
Secretary Hay and the Chinese minis?
ter has been presented to the senate
and ratified. From all appearances
the sentiment against Chinese exclu?
sion, of which talk is heard now and
then, is not sufficiently strong to en?
danger the ratification of the new
treaty by the senate. Should the op?
ponents of the measure start a fight
after the treaty is' presented to the
senate, with any prospect of success,
it is believed that the document
would be withdrawn rather than per?
mit its amendment by the senate in
such manner as to weaken the restric?
tions u]pon the admission of Chinese
of the lower classes.
The new treaty, it is said, will be
equally as strict as the old one in re?
gard to exclusion, but it will contain
provisions which will permit the en?
trance ?nto the United States of offi?
cials, merchants, students and other
excepted classes without the restric?
tions now imposed. A thorough ex?
amination will be provided for
through which every Chinaman now
in this country and desiring to visit
China, with the intention of return?
ing to the United States, shall be pro?
vided with a certificate entitling him
to reenter the United States within
two years from the dateof departure.
The treaty will also contain a provis?
ion permitting the United States to
establish immigration officials in
China, charged with the duty of in?
vestigating every Chinaman intending
to come to the United States. With a
certificate from such official, inspec?
tion at the port of entry would be
abolished, except as to the verification
of the certificates and identification
of applicants for admission.
HELP FOR TEXAS FARMERS.
One Bank has Offered to Carry
1,000 Bales of Cotton for a
Year, and Others May do
Likewise.
Waco. Texas, Dec. 7 -A movement
is on foot in Waco to afford relief to
country merchants and others who
have quantities of cotton so as to en?
able them to hold what they have un?
til the market regains its nonna!
le'vei.
Judge Eugene Williams tonight
sounded Texas banas with a view to
enlisting their aid in assisting all cot
ton holders, a bank of this city hav?
ing offered to carry 1,000 bales of cot?
ton for one year, advancing $30 a bale,
at six cer cent, and it is understood
that all the banks of Waco will make
similar offers.
There are over six hundred banking
institutions in Texas and if the move?
ment becomes general, as is expected,
it is believed that ample relief will be
furnished to every cotton holder in
the State who is in distress, as a re?
sult of the recent flurry.

Has Seen This State.
Mr. E. J. Watson, commissioner of
agriculture and immigration, has re?
ceived a letter from a northern gen?
tleman, who once was anxious to get
away from this State, and now would
be very glad to get back.
The letter is from the vice com?
mander of the National Legion of the
Blue and Gray, who is asking about
the agricultural possibiilties of this
state and for a list of farms for sale,
with prices and locations.
"In September, 1864, I escaped
from Andersonville," he writes, "and
I passed up through Berkeley county
from a point of the Branchville rail?
road within 14 miles of Charleston,
up through Mt.Holly,thence to Straw?
berry ferry, Bonneau's ferry, crossing
Santee at Gourdin ferry, thence down
the neighborhood road to Sampit
bridge thence to Cat Island and down
th? Santee on a dugout to South Is?
land, where I remained in an old
abandoned fort until I was picked
up by the gunboat Patomska, which
was blockading off Georgetown. You
see I am interested in South Carolina.

Another Railroad for Bishopviiie.
As will be seen from the extracts
from the Sumter papers, the survey of
the Sumter and Northern railroad is
being maae this week. The surveyors
weTe expected to each here by yes?
terday, but we presume that the bad
weather has retarded the work and
that they will reach here today or to?
morrow. " If the citizens of Sumter,
Bishopviiie and those all along the
route are aroused to the importance
of this road and throw no obstacle in
the way of getting the right of way,
the road is assured.
There is plenty of capital behind the
enterprise and if the citizens will
give the right of way they will be
more than doubly aid by the enhanced
value of their property. It is proposed
to connect with the Sea Board Air
Line at McBee and then on to Jeffer?
son and eventually to Monroe, N. C.
which will give the shortest and most
direct route to Norfolk and open up
the finest section in the state for truck
farming as well as cotton and lum?
ber. It will give us two competing
lines and that means better freight
and passenger schedules. It stands
us all in hand now to pull together.
Just where the line will run will not
be determined no til after the snrvey
is made.-Bishopviiie Vindicator.
