COTTON CROP OF 1885-86.
AN ESTIMATE OF IT LI COL. SAM

To th. Editor! of th. Appeal :
Memphis, Tssiif., February 10. As
there ie bo subject tbat is more inter
esting to a large number of your read
ers, and none that there hai been
more speculation about, noie which
correspondents have differed so wide
ly at'our, I propose to give you my
estimate of the probable yitlJ of the
cotton ciop of 1SS5, now fast drawina
to a close.
It is well known tfcnt we have lal
arroit fivorable seaaon for f a'.herii g
and mcrketin,? the crop. It vt.u about
two weeks earlier tban an average
seafos. While the price has been low,
the farmers were in debt, and tbe price
?;radtially declining. Tne - merebnit
rom the cross roadjand depots to tan
wholeta'e men ia cit'es, who had
ma le advances t) tha planters, hnve
been urgiiiK us to send our cotton for
ward, for iear it would go lower, until
now there is but lit'.le to be found
cutside o! the merchants' sheds in the
cities or interior towns. The scare
crow that has been held up to us from
New York and New Orleans by the
purchasers f r manufacturers or spec
ulators of a 6,750,000 to 7.000,030
bale crop has had its effect to
push the crop forward for fear tbat
their ca'culation might be realized.
If eo the bo torn would drop out of the
market. Those calculations are all
made up from the Fame source, and I
propose t) show tieir unreliability.
They are all taken from the agri
cultural reports of the acreage in
cotton, which, at best, is not much
better than good guessing. Besides
this, if the acre aze was even approxi
mately true, no deductions are mide
for the conttintly depreciating pro
ductive tower of our lands owing to
the cut-throat policy now so univer
sally followed by co'ton planters and
their tenaits cf selling their cot'oa
seed instead cf allowing them to go
bark on the land as a fertilizer. From
my observation and experience, this
loss of productive power on all my
land that till been in cultivation for
ten to fifteen yearp, when we began
this ruinous policy, bai been 3 rer
cent, per annual. Again, owing to
the severe drouth in most places,
and excess of lain in others, the
last years' crop was the mo it
epot'ea and irregular that I have seen
ia ten years; even in neighborhoods
only a few miles apart there was a dif
ference cf one-ha'f on the same char
acter cf lands. Ibal not a drop of
rain for seven weeks, in July and Au-'
gust, while the crop wai at its fuil
Eight of growing and fruiting, with the
most intensely bet weather I ever saw,
causing the p'aat to shed all its
hloomtt, Equares and small bolle, eo
t'jat the ground was literally covered
with them, and cut oil all hopo or
prospect of a top ciop, which is a'
ways eneentif.l to a Urge crop; and it
the- testimony cf every planter that I
have seen that there wai no top ciop
except on the bottomjinda that are in
the habit of overflowing, which, com
pared with the wbo'e area in cottw.is
very small. Another evidence of tne
ehortnees o! the crop !b the fact tbat
the crop was all picked out, practically,
long before Christmas, a tning tarely
ever known in even an aversgs
crop. In the year 1SS2, when
we made 7,003,000 bales, I was picking
cotton up to April. When 1 began
planting, and I wai not an exception,
that year f ally proved the ef.entold
story that it takes thirteen months to
make and gather a cot 'on crop. I pro
pone tj give what I believe to be the
only true mode of estimating a cotton
crop, and that is, its movements from
the plant Uiona to market compared
with other years. The part year we
bad increased facilities f r ginning and
transportation that ahould have had
some influence in favor of its more
ESTIMATE OF THE CROP Of 18S5.
The New York Chronicle, tbe most
reliable statistical paper on cotton in
this country, makes up the cotton in
eight and marketed to January 30,
18S6, from all sources as follows:

from the crop of ltt5 ...5.323,919
At came time January 30, 1885 4,'J2),70G
Counting from thn came source the
increase in receipts for 1880 over 1885
are 395,147, or 8 per cent on 'ait year's
receipts to same date.
Latham, Alexander & Co , a fUnd
ard authority, f jot up the crop of 1884
received up to September 1, 1885, at
6,707,165. Deduct amount recaived to
January 30, 185, as above, 4,928,706,
and we have that was received afttr
January 30th to September 1st of that
crop 777,3'J0. Add 8 per cent to this
as the average increase of the crop of
18S5 to the 30th of January for con
tinued increase on the cottoa yet to
be received, 62.191, and we have vet
to receive 839,510. Add the amount
received ti the 30th cf January to tbif,
5,h23,9l9, which gives crop for 1S85
of 6,103,509. Suppose we add another
8 per cent, or 16 per cent increase from
now on, 62,191, and the crop would be
For tbe bene tit cf New York and
New Orleans long-crop beats I will
add 9 per cent, more, making the total
increase on cotton yet to be received
to September 1st , cf 25 per cent., or
69,909 bales, and we find the crop 0,
29o,6i9 bales. When .we consider that
there is in the foregoing calculation
453,163 bales as the excess of stock
now in twenty-nine interior towns
above last year, and that all the re
ceipts to be counted from this out
mutt come direct from tbe plantation?,
I think no liberal-minded cotton l'ic
tor will dispute the fairness or liberal
ity of my calculations. I a' low for an
increase from February to September
of 194,351 bales, and to til receipt of
071,750 bales, besides the 453,163 bales
at interior towns already counted, but
which has to come forward to swell the
foregoing estimate, either to the portf,
overland, or be consumed in the
South. This woald give an aggregate
movement from plantations and in
terior towns, from 1st February to 1st
September, of 1,424,913 balee. Will
we get it T The iccrtased receipts at
the ports hereaf er need frighten no
one. It will 03 ly be at the expense of
the stock in interior towns already
counted at a part of the crop in the
foregoing estima'e. giH tatb.

Cleveland (O.) Herald: Yes'.erday
and the dav before we copied into our
columns from the Rochester (S. Y.)
Democrat wf Chronicle a remarkable
statement, made by J. B. Henion,
M.I?., a gentleman who ia well known
ia this city. In that article Dr.
Henion recounted a wonderful ex
perience which befell him, and the
next day we published from the same
paper a second article, giving an a
count of the excitement in Rochester
and elsewhere caused by Dr. Ilenion'a
statement. It is doubtful if any two
atticles were ever published which
cauted greater commotion both among
profeesioca's and laymen.
fcince the publication of these t to
articles, having been besieged with
letters of it qnirv, we sett a comma
nictt on to Dr. Iletion end alio to II.

tional proof C2uld be given, aud here

me from the very b' ink of the giave.

S'irs The best proof that we can
give you tbat the statement made by
Dr. Henioa are entirely t'ue, and
would not have been published unless
strictly eo, is the fallowing testimonial
from the-best citizens cf Eochettsr,
and a card published by the Ilev. Dr.

To Whom It May Concern :
We are personally or by repntation
acquaiitsd with Dc Henios, and we
believe he would publish no statement
net literally true. We are personally
or by repuut on well acquainted with
H. H. Warner A Co., proprietors of
Warner's tafe Cure (by which Dr.
Henion says he was cured), whose
commercial and personal standing in
this community are of the highest or

not publish any s'a'ements which were
not literally and ttrittly true in every

There was published in the Roches

by J. B. Lfenion, M.D , narreting how
be bnl been cured of Bright's disease
of the kidneys, B'most is its last
stages, by the use of Warner's Bef j
Cure. I wai referred to in that state
ment as having recommended and
urged Dr. Henion to try the remedy,
which ke did, and was cured. The
statement of Dr. Henion is true, eo
far aa it concerns myself, and I believe
it to be true in all other respects. He
was a parishioner of mine, and I vis
ited him in his sickness. I urged him
to tu'ie the medicine, and would do

in the face of such conclusive proof.

Atlakta, Ga., February 11. In the
United States Court the case of O. A.
Lo:hrane against the Southern Tele
graph Company came op yeeterday.
The suit was instituted by Lochrane
to collect 130,000 cf bonds, and the
struggle was to get rid of this litiga
tion by absorbing it in a Buit by Gen.
Mahone and others in Virginia. The
suit filed elsewhere greatly compli
cates matters. Decrees in Virginia and
Georgia appointed separate masters.
Exceptions were made to the master's
report in Georgia, and the effect of the
decree in Virginia in regard to ceitiin

the master in Georgia, and had been
found by him valid after their defec

in Georgia had no notice Judge Mc
Crary sustained the exceptioan.refierv

bonds in Georgia to present them to

Chicago, III.. February 11. A
morning paper is authority for the
statement that a strike of 13(H) or 1W0
o! the employes at MuCormick's repair
works ia imminent. The article Bay :
Whether cne occurs or not depends on
the answer which Mr. McCormick may
give to-c'av to a committee from the
Molders' Union. If a strike is ordered,
it is said, it will be with th approval
and by the direction of the Knights of
Labor. It will be effectual, and re
ceive complete support from all
btaicnes of " the toiy. Thn situation,
as described by a number c f tbe mold
ers, is this: At the time the ttrike
among McCormick's employes last
April was settled the demands of the
strikers were acceded to, and a'l the
men were promised employment after
the works should start up, on the ex
juration of tbe usual shut-down period
in t ie summer. Thn works started up
about tbe middle of August, and it was
then found tbat machines bad been
put in to do the molders' work. About
fifteen or eighteen machines have been
put in, and ea?h cne is calculated to
do the work cf ten men. The
superintendent, it is c'aiined, refused
to re-employ tbe molders, and in
stead hired tome colored unskilled la
borers t) run the machines. A few
non-unioi molders were employed
also. Toe union men claim the ma
chines have pioved a failure; tha.
wages have been cut down, and that
things were generally u neat it factory
to them. Sevetal union men have
been employed nithin a few days, but
on learning tbat tbey would have to
work with non-unionists left. A

is causing furnaemen to ctl'sr almost

haut tad, end iron men are willing ti
pay more from the fact that many fur
naces cannot be tanked at the present
time without serious loss. Sime fur
naces, if tanked, would be ruined,
aid could not be put in blast again in
less tban four months, and the ex-
f ense v; oild be considerable. N. P.
lindman, western agent cf the Con
nellsville Ccke and Iron Company, of
the coke syndicate, in an interview,
faid that he had an unusually large
number of icquiries for coke.
"A mai wio.e to-day for several car
loals cf coke, offering to pay any
price I wanted to put eu it. I have
other inquiries for coke with prices
ranging irom $ 1 50 to 12 25 per ton.
It is impossible td supply any cf our
custo iters because we have not got a
pound of coke." Another member of
the syndic a'o hearing the statement
of Mr. Hindman, a Jmi!td that they
also had many inquiries f ir coke at
prices above tbe $1 20 mark, but said
it was useless to talk about tha ai
there was no coke to supply the de
maud, "If the icon men," said he,
"had signified their willingness t j fay
more for fuel a month or two ago, we
would probably have put the price up,
and all this trouble would have been
avoided. Under the present condition
of affairs it will be itnpocsible to re
