President Ingalls, of the "Big Four"
line, a purely Western road, in his
address at the World's Fair on Rail
road Day, expressed the opinion
that the South is just now entering
upon its period of greatest railroad
activity and development; and pre
dicted that it would build at least
k00,000 miles of railroad within the
next thirty years, trebling its mileage
and giving it a total of 150.000
miles, or nearly as much as the
entire country possesses at present.
A dispatch from Washington dated
October 6th, says that the silver
Senators are beginning to discuss
among themselves the a Ivisability
of making an effort to displace the
repeal bill with the federal election
bill when the latter measure shall
come to the Senate from the House,
but they seem to be somrewhat di
vided upon the question. Some of
the Senatqrs are decidedly opposed
to an attempt to get the bill up when
it first comes over for the reason
that such a course might be inter
preted as an evidence that the re
sources tn direct opposition to the
repeal bill are exhausted. But as a
great many of the silver Senators
are opposed to any such position, it
is very unlikely that such a course
wilt be pursued.
The Vicksbwvg District Omnibns

As the New Orleans States says,
it is getting high time that the Sen
ate adopt as soon as possible a rule
which will enable a vote tobe reached
on a measure after a sufficient time
has been allowed the Senate to discuss
it. The people and the press recog
nize the fact that some rule of this
kind is necessary if tariff reform and
other legislation is to be effected by
the present session of Congress. So
far, a Republican minority have com
pletely succeeded in blocking legisla
tion, and the Democrats have been
deprived of the fruits of the victory
they won at the last election.
The present condition of things
presents'the strange anomaly of a
party in full power in every branch
of government, and yet powerless to
carry out its pledges. If this state
of things keeps up very long the
masses will begin to lose confidence
in the administration and the Re
publicans will make political capital
out of it in the next campaign. Of
course the proprietors of protected
industries and manufactures are
noting with great satisfaction the
success with which a fillerbustering
minority have so far obstructed legis
lation, especially the repeal of the
Sherman law. All of this is having
its effect. Immediately after the
repeal of the Sherman law un the
lo-tse, business began to pick up
and confidence was in a great meas
ure restored. But now every step
taken by manufacturers is taken with
great caution and deliberation. Peo
ple are beginning to become doubt
ful again; and the result is that the
same wide-spread distrust is about
to grow prevalent again. Such is
the situation. The party cannot
carry out its pledges; and although
in control of everything, it cannot
enact a single law that would tend to
ameliorate the condition of things.
And thus it is becoming clear to the
people that if Congress wishes to do
anything, some steps will have to be
taken by which a vote in the Senate
can be forced. Until this is done
no Democratic law can be enacted.
It is said, however, that the pres
ent opposition to the repeal of the
Shermani law is nothing compared to
the opposition that will be arrayed
against the tariff reform bill later on.
This is the main issue upon which
the Democrats came into power r this
is the principal pledge that the ad
ministration made to the people, and
in fact is the embodiment of the over
whel.,.ing victory of Cleveland at the
polls. The protected manufacturers
will array money, power, bribery and
everything else against the passage
Iof any reform legislation. Every
energy will be exerted to defeat any
measure that will tend to take off the
protection from their petted indust
rles. Chief among the obstacles to
thwart the passage of laws will be
the course of fillerbustering now pur
sued. And as long as the Senate
is unable to check this course we
need not expect either the repeal of
SSherman law or the passage of any
tariff reform measure. Let some
steps be taken therefore to remedy
matters and prevent a minority from
completely blocking the course of
The storm that swept the gulf
coast from beyond Grand Isle around
to the Florida coast last Sunday and
Monday week, was the most terrible
disaster that has ever befallen Lou
isiana. All along the coast there
are a number of small islands occu
pied mostly by fishermen, and fre
quented also by pleasure seekers
during warm seasons of the year.
These islands are low and marshy.
The storm was of sutch fury that the
waves dashed in large ballows over
them, sweeping everything in their
course, and leaving utter ruin be
hind. Upwards of twenty-five hund
red people were drowned, and on
several of the islands everything was
wiped oit of existence. The people
of New Orleans and the southern
portions of the State have contrib
uted money, food, clothing and
everything aecessary to relieve the
suffering. History furnishes no par
allel ease in the waters of the gulf.

The following from the weekly
circular of Clapp & Company,
bankers and brokers, No.^60 Broad
way, New York, dated October 6,
will be found both interesting and
encouraging to cotton interests.
We think there are many reasons c
why the crop ol cotton should be
compared with that of 1884 (we d)
not believe in making comparvzons
with last year any more than in
making comparisodlt between a trot
tingl horse and a dray horse. Com
parisons should be made with
similar years or objects or subjects.
In 1884 the spring was cold, late
and followed by too much rain or s
drought. The crop was more or
less destroyed by worms and other
causes similar to those prevailing
this season: 'l'oo much rain east of
the Mississippi Rtver too little west
of the river, as in 1881. The 1884
Government report of acreage was
17,322,388; this season it is 11.712,
268. Port receipts then for Septem
ber were 314,000 bales; last Septem
her they were 312,000 bales. The
crop in 1834 w-as 5,706,1615 bales.
Shetppardsou's present estimate is
for a crop ot 6,800,000 bale.(i
Clapp's estimate is 6.700,010 bales.
Financial conditions in 1884 were I
but little better than now. The
Liverlsfol stock is below a milllon
bales for the first time since No'-em
her, 1891. The Indian acreage
last year was 14,898,000, azainst
17,124,000 in 1890 (that was the
maximum for tiany years.) Egyt
ian and Brazilian cotton sipplies
are less t.Ihan a vyar ago. Sh!lp
ineuts are larger, cotton r'eports
more fayorabtle. The amon it all, at
to Girat Britain, and L3ritiksh and
Continental stocks, are all belowI
recent averages and only equal
about ten weeks c,,nsumpti'e needs.
The wortl's coosunlmption is about
193,000 bales (O, of 0 1,,1un.1.) t.e
week, and estimate I to exceed thl
season's crop, and liable to reui.c
the vimthle the conning twelve
months otte million bales fr,,n, the
present stock. It semes natural to
ex pect the foreign demantd for
cotton at present prices will be large.
Speculative sentinent is hroadeningo
throughout the Soiuth. The cotton
grower appears to be his worst
enemy by being forced to rush his
crop to market and putting it in
sight, which aids to depress prices.

Mr. Editor:-I am sorry I have
been called upon In thiLs anner- to
videate myself. To begin with, it
was so unjust and uanecessary, that I
really do not know how to begin. Itn
the first place, I was enuenuraged by
one and all to take the men down to
Woodland plantation, so I went to
work and carried down about the let
of September thirty-one, and on the
16111 of September, I returned to
Providence with the same good inten
tion to he a relief siad benefit, both tn
the lalntera and laborers. In a small
extent I have been a relief and benefit,.
tor just before I l]fi Woodland tlsan
intiou I went to NMr. W.. H Chaffe
and asked tihat he ad nitce to the boys
who camle with me two or three dol
lats apiece to seaid their wives. 'That
idea met Mr. Chaffe's approval, and
the money was sent to tue. $15.00,
which was given to their respective
wives. lIad all of them tn asked fºor
money it woult have been given them.
It is true, there was some little ob.
jectiolns by a few (I say a few. for they
were very few) on my second trip; so
to try and get tile sentiment and feel

the planters meet Inue i the towl of

was there, and the ,honlv planter pres
