COTTON NO LONGElt KING.
Neill's cotton estimate has thrown
a ilmper upon the cotton growers
throughout the entire cotton belt,
and as soon as it was published, down
went the price and the hopes of the
planters. It really looks as if the
frown of ruin is on the cotton belt;
every other industry seems to pros
per and share in the rise of p.ice ex
cept the cotton industry, and why?
It i3 because the cotton industry is
confined to the South and is its prin
cipal product. The people are de
voting their entire energies towards
growing the staple and do not give
enough attention to other products.
True, it is not as bad now as it was
a few years back, tobacco in some
sections came aiong as a God-send;
it drove debt before it, and lifted up
many who were down under the
crushing wheels of misery. Time is a
a great teacher, and it will not be
many years before our farming peo
pie will be forced through starvation
to let cotton alone and seek some
other crop to get money. Some peo
ple attribute the low price of cotton
to speculation and we use to think
that way, but as we grow older we
are convinced that speculation has
very little to do with the price, but
the real cause is that.quantity exceeds
the demand. The mills in Europe
and America have cuantities of stock
on hand from last year's crop. The
manufactured goods are crowding
every market, and as long as this
condition exists there is absolutely
no chance for an increase in the
demand for the raw material, and as
long as there is no demand for rawv
material just so long will the price
be kept down. A few years ago wheat
in the West lay as dormant as does
our Southern cotton now, and the
farmers became restless and were
disposed to blame the government,
speculators and everything else;
wheat was flat, and all the grain ele
vators were full with no market. All
at once the gates of Europe flew
open because jhe crops across the
ocean failed, and the result was that
in a short time the elevators became
emptied and the demand for wheat
ran up to a fabulous price. The
farmers of the West were benefited
by the crop failure in Europe, and
unless misfortune overtakes the cot
ton crops of Texas and Mississippi
our farmers need not hope for a bet
ter price, and they will find that
Neill is not as far wrong in his crop
estimates as many writers think.
Governor McSweeney in his anxie
ty to have the dispensary law enforced
without friction has sent out a circu
lar letter to the municipalities, urging
them to co-operate with him, and it
is indeed encouraging to read the
replies from the Mayors and Inten
dants, all of whom so far heard from
promise to aid the governor. If Gov
ernor McSweeney finds that the lo
cal authorities are making diligent
efforts at enforcing the law, his pur
pose is to save the State thousands of
dollars, now being paid out in sala
ries to constables who are stationed
in the towns and cities. Every move
ment made by the governor shows
him to be a man of practical business
and not one of these flowery dream
ers, and if the people will hold up
his hands, it is our honest judgment
his administration will be the great
est success we have had in many
years. Governor McSweeney is a
dispensary advocate, at the same
time he believes the law should be,
and can be,enforced without the fric
tion that has heretofore attended it.
He is desirous of demonstrating to
the people the necessity of respecting
all law, and he has adopted a wise
course to bring about such a happy
result, wve believe.
The parties who have not paid
their notes to the penitentiary au
thorities are to be sued. and it is ex
pected that a cr iminal prosecution
will be brought against Col. Neal,
notwithstanding the fact that be has
had the money ready to pay any
shortage, the committee would find
against him. Under the circumstances
we doubt very muuch if a criminal
prosecution would hold. Neverthe
ing for an indictment, ad it would
not surprise us at all, if he does have
to appear in court upon a criminal
The way some newspapers are mis
representing Senator Tillman, re
minds us of their tricks in 1890, and
it was for. such dishonest practices
that the people turned against those
newspapers and helped Tillman on
to victorv. Senator Tillman made a
speech at Greenwood, and the pa
peis opposing him are quoting hi)
as g.iving utterance-s to sentiments
which no sensilble man would make,
and if the enemies of Tillman will not
give the man credit for the good lie
has done, they will at least not have
the hardihood to charge him with
being a fool.
It now t urns out, since all of the
papers have taken a whack at Till
man for his alleged offensive utter
ances at Sumter, that it was not him
who said the "Prohibitionists were
hypocrites and cowards," but the
slanderous charge was made by Hon.
E. D. Smith, the man who ran on
the Prohibition ticket for Superin
tendent of Education.
Republicans are pouring in on MC
Kinley their advice for speedy end
ing of the war in the Philippines, and
it is apparent that this is having its
effect on the President, for it is now
said that 50,000 soldiers will support
Otis in the fall for the next campaign
against the Filipinos.
It was wrong to demand absolute
and unconditional surrender of the
insurgent Filipinos. What we should
have done was to offer them indepen
dence under our protection. War
would have thus been averted.
Now and then the death o! free
silver is announced, but no one has
yet produced proof of the corpus de
Aguinaldo should now place a law
yer at the head of his War Depart
ment and proceed with the fight.
iFrom or.r Regular Correspondent )
Frequenters of the War Depart
ment, which continues to be the
busiest of them all, are reminded by
the present situation, of the adage
about the difiiculty of teaching old
dogs new tricks. There is a new
head to the department, but the ma
chinery is just the same that it was
during the Alger regime, and there
is the same dhsinclination to tell the
public anything that can be hid. Al
though it is well known that more
men have already been enlisted than
will fill the original announced num
ber of Philippine regiments of volun
teers, and that enlistments are still
being made as rapidly as possible.
War Department officials say that no
o>icial decision has been made to in
rease the number of regiments, and
that no additional call for volunteers
is likely. Th'lis is nothing more than
qibbling. It is so certain that more
regiments will be organized that lists
>f their officers have been made out.
As to issuing a new call for volun
eers, none is necessary to continue
the recruiting up to the limit fixed
by Congress-35,000 men. As a mat
ter of fact, no call was issued when
the present recruiting was begun-a
simple order of the secretary of War
Senator Clay expresses the belief
that there will be an antiexpansion
lepublican presidential ticket in the
field next year, and that such men as
Tom Reed and ex-Secretary of the
Treasury Boutwell, of Mass., will sup
port it, and that its vote in Ne'N Eng
land will be large enough to throw
the electoral votes of those States to
That nearly all of the negroe's
trouble has its origin in bad advice,
given sometime thoughtlessly and
not a few times with the malicious
intention to make trouble is well
known to those who have taken the
time to study the race problem. A
Washington lawyer deserves a place
among the bad advisers of the negro.
He stated, in an argument in defence
f a negro who was charged with be
ing disorderly and found guilty and
fned, that his client would have been
justified had he shot the policeman
ho arrested him. If some negro
desperado who heard that statement
should kill the first officer who at
tempted to arrest him for some petty
rme, wouldn't that lawyer be an
accessory to the murder?
The administration crowd is really
becoming alarmed at the extent >f
the "nigger" animosity to Mr. Mc
Kinley, and the word has been passed
around to the "nigger" office hold
ers to whooixp it up for the admninis
tration at every turn, and especially
to try to counteract the anti-McKin
ley talk at the gathering, in Chicagvo,
to be known as the Afro-American
Council. The negro voters of Ohio
have it in their power to make it im
possible for the Mc~inley-Hanna
candidate for governor to be elected;
consequently, they are being 'jollied"
by everybody connected with the
adminstration, but some of those
"niggers" are just smart enough to
make it plain that an office with a
good salary attachment is the only
sort of a jolly they will take from the
The revival of the story alleging
the intention of ex-Czar Reed to ie
main in Congress and lead the fight
against expansion, on the floor of the
House, probably had no more sub
stantial basis than a desire to worry
those republicans wvho for one or
another reason welcome his ret ire
ment from Congress. Even if he re
mained in the House, he woold not
lead the fight on imperialism; that
patriotic duty will be performed by
a democrat. I
Representative Bankhead, of Ala.,
was in Washington this week. He
was indignant because of a publica
tion several days ago alleging that

at Saratoga. Speaking of it, he said:

well known that Alabama is a Urvan
State. We will send an instructed

convention. Bryan is the logical can
didate, and he will be unainiously
