J Editor Press and Banner : I trust that the Abbeville correspondent of the News and Courier will pardon the unintentional delay In ray reply to his letter In the Press and Banner of May 80th. 1 see that while explaining that the error of speaking of the G.. C. & N. R. R. as the Greenville, Columbia and Newberry was made by the News atid Courier, he overlooks tbe fact that as the error has been made time after time, the "interested public" feel that he should read his own letters after they appear lu print. Now, that he has cleared his good Abbeville name, It is In order for him to see that his paper does not again put him in a?shall I say ridiculous??light before that public I am amused at "Correspondent's" guess as to my identity. As the Press and Banuer told him, he "missed the mark." I am not an employee of, or in anyway connected with, the Georgia, Carolina and Northern, and am interested only In the Increased business and prosperity it has brought to the town, and because I believe in "fair play."

McKellar?Lecturer. J. W. Fife?Doorkeeper. Capt J. W. Dues?Secretary. J. L. Hughey?Business Manager. N. 0. Pyles?Treasurer. Delegates to the quarterly meeting of the Alliance were as follows: N. O. Pyles. J. L. Hughey. Capt. W. G. Austlu. James Anderson. V. R. Hlnton. The following resolution was unanimously adopted: Resolved. That this Alliance Instruct its 1 Manager to protest against the oil combination to put cotton seed at 15 cents a bushel and meal at 20 dollars per ton. This oil combination, like all other tracts, reminds your humble correspondent very much of the old story of the onolce between the crow and the turkey. It proposes to give the farmer a low price for their cotton eeed and force them to pay a high price for cotton seed meal. Now, in our opinion, the farmers have as much right to form a combination against the oil companies as the oil companies have to form a trust against them. We think the best thing for our farmers to do throughout the cotton belt, is to demand at least twenty-five cents per bushel for tbeir cotton seed, and if they will not bring that much, then keep them at borne and use them for feeding stock and for fertilizers. Let the farmers fix tbelr price for cotton seed, and if tbe mills don't want them at that price, let them do without them. Let tbe mills have the privilege of fixing the price on their meal and if tbe farmers tblnk this price too high, they can let tbe mills keep their meal. Every man has a right to say what be 1b willing to take for his property, but he has no right to say what other people shall take for theln. District Lecturer, J. R. Blake, addressed the Greenwood Alliance to da-day. Among other things be said : We see the results of the Alliance on every hand. Even In Enrope its effects are felt. Tbe alms of tbe Alliance are to better the condition of tbe country. He spoke of its suecess in breaking down the bagging trust, of Alliance demands now before the United Stales Congress, of the educational works being accomplished through the Alliance. Alllancemen are as loyal to doty today ! as ever. Though your meetings may be usually small, when an occasion demands it yon are out in full force. Every Alllanceman should feel It his personal duty to attend tbe Alliance meeting. This organization has taken an advancing step. N. O. Pylss. Bicycles.
