Th business propped is the manufacture and sale of cotton, cotton goods, yan.s, nread and woven cotton, silk or linen, ither spun or woven. Within a radius of seventy-five miles of the site cf the great Yadkin river power plant now icing building there are at piesei;l no c'mb than eighty-three cotton mills alone, to which power could be sup plied. Rome of there mills use water now, and are situated on qher powers almost all of which would admit of ir.. creased plants. Especially is this tir.a of the Coolemee mills in Davie county. now in course of erection, on the smith Yadkin, where they have an available hor.se power of several thousand. T.ic Yadkin River company, which Is envt Ing this power plant at the Narrows, intends to erect an immense cotton mill somewhere near the plant, to de monstrate the efTicency and cheapness of electric ty as a power compared wi h team. After Colored Recruits. Lie. tenant Settle yesterday received orders to begin enlisting men for the two colored volunteer regiments, the Forty-eighth and Forty-ninth. The Forty-eighth will be stationed at Fort Thomas, Ky., and the Forty-nintri at Jefferson Barracks, n?Ar St. Louis Recruits can select either, but those having no preference will b? sent to Fort Thomas. These are the oniy colored regiments to be raised and they will probably be filled very quickly. The recently appointed colored officers of this State wil probably be assigned to help recruit, and if so offices may be opeued in Durham or Winston. Graham's New Factory. These are growing times, and the Scott Mebane Manufacturing Company, of Graham, manufacturers of overalls,' have outgrown their quarters and have neaily compleatcd a large two s'ory brick factory, 75x130 feet. This busi ness was begun only a few years lso and the great success which ic has ut shows what can be done in the old Xorch State by men of the "get up And get' spirit. State Notes.

BRYfiN SPEAKS Oil TRUSTS Great Leader Denounces the Trust System. THE STATE AND NATION Should tnite to Make These Combinations Impossible. Enthusiastic Listeners, and Great Applause. Chicago, 111., Special. Central Musi Hail, the scene of the Civic Federation Conference on tru,ts and combinations, was pocked from pit to gallery when W. J. Bryan delivered his reply to W. Bourke Cochran on the trust question. Mr. P.ryan was introduced by Gov ernor Stanley, of Kansus, who acted as chairman of the open'ng session. Wild -iipiausa greeted :ae Nebraskan. W. j Bourke Ccehran listened intently and Joined frequently in tihe applause. Mr. Bryan spoke in part as fellows: "Within two years more truvt hive been ergzeized than in '.I'.ie previous his tory of the country ami the people now come face to face with this ques tion: "Is the trust a blessing or a curse? If a curse what remedy can be applied to the curse? "Monopoly in private hands i3 in defensible from any standpoint and in tolerable. I do not divide monopolies. There can be no gocd monopoly in private hands until the Almighty send us angels to preside over us. "There may be a despot wlio is bet ter than smother despot, but there is n gcod despotism. The defence of the monopoly is always placed on the ground that if you will allow people '.o control the market and fix the price they will be good to 'th3 people who purchase of tlh&ni. The entire defence of Fae trusts rests upon a rrjrney argu ment. If the trusts will sell an article for a dollar less 'tfean the article will cost under other cc-nditions.then in the opinion cf some that proves a trust to be a good thing. In the first place I deny 'that under a monopoly the price will be reduced. In tihe secend place, if under a monopoly the p:ice is re- dured, tihe objections to a monopoly from other Eland point 3 far outweigh the financial advantage thit the trust would bring. But I pretest against set tling every question upon the dollar argument. ' In the eiily yeavz of Lincoln's ad ministration he sent a messae to Con gress, warning his countrymen against fae approach of monarchy. He said he saw in the attempt to put capital even upon equal footing with labor in the structure of government, 'the approach of monarchy. Lincoln was right. Whenever you put capital upon an equal footing with labor, or above la bor in the .structure cf government, you ere cn t-hs road to aid aovernnient that rests not on reason, but on force. "Xotiiiing is rnoie important than that we s.ha!l, in t'iie beginning rightly unclerstand the relation between mon ey and man. "Man is the creature cf God and money is the servant of man, and I protest against all theories thmt en throne money and debase mankind. "If you will go about the country you will ree where people have sub scribed money to establish enterprises, and where those enterprises, having come under the control of ithe trusts have been closed up and stand ncrw as silent monuments 'to the Sodom cf the trus't system. In any case of local S'trikes stju fires, tihe work goes on elsewhere, thus preventing serious lo?s. "When a br;nch cf industry is found in tiie nanas oi ore ci ine great, mo nopolies so that every skilled man must ro to one man for employment. the one man fixes the wages as he pleases anu tne lauoring men wm men fi'.iare the suffering cf the man who sells the raw material. "I want to warn you 'tha't when the mcccpoly hs absolute control, brains will be ait a discount. We have not yet had a taste cf a complete trusit. But v.t'aen the trurt has rid itself cf all com petitors what is g-cing to be the result? Mv friends., ail you have to know is human nature. Gcd made man sel fish. "On the farm we used to protect property from the hogs by putting rings ia their Eoses. Why? So that while they were getting fat.they would not destroy more 'than ithey were worth. "One of the great -purposes cf gov ernment is to put rings in the noses of hogs. If I were going to try to find tihe root of the monopoly evil, I would go back to the Bible for an explana tion, and I would find it in the declara ticn that the love of money is the root of all evil. "Falling prices, caused by a rising dollar and the ihig'h tariff, have ccn tributed to the desire to secure the fruits of the monopoly. "Some have suggested that to put everything cn the free list that trusts make would destroy the trusts. But I do not believe that you could destruy all trusts by putting all trust-made articles on -the free list because if an article can be produced in this country as cheaply as it can he produced abroad, then the trust could exist with out the benefit of any tariff at al! though it could not extort so much. We cannot destroy monopoly until we lay the axe at the root of the tree and make monopoly impossible by law. "Discrimination by railroads has aid ed trusts. That can be remedied by laws which will place producers on equal footing. But the remedy must be complete enough to prevent the or ganization of a monopoly. We differ more in remedy than we do in our opinion of the trust. Few people wlli defend the trust as a principle. As to the remedy both State and nation should concur as o these remedies. In tie first place every State has or should have the right to create any private corporation which is conductive to a welfare of the people cf that Suit. I believe that we can eaiely entrust to the people of a State the settleaivLt of a question which concerns them. If they create a corporation and it Lc cones destructive of their best Inter ests they can destroy that corporation and W9 can (safely trust them both ic create and to annihilate if conditions make annihilation necessary. "In the second piac-e the State hce, or should have, the right to prohibit any foreign corporation, from doii.g business in the State, and it ought to have cr impose such restrictions and limitations as the people of the State may think necessary upon any foreign corporation doing business in the State. I bel ieve in an addition of State letn edy, but there must be a Federal rem edy. "Congress has, or should have the power to place such restrictions and limitations, even to the point of pri hibition, upon any corporation organ ized In one State, that wants to co business outside of the State contrary to public good. "I believe that thrse concurrent rem edies will reach the difficulty, that the people of every State shall first decide whether they want to create a corpora tion; that they shall, secondly, decide whether they want any outside corpor ation to do business in the State, and if so, upon what conditions and thirdly that Congrcca shall exercise the right to place upon every corporation doini business outside of the State in whkfc it is organized, such limitations and restriction.: as may be necessary for tb protection of the public good."

The South Baltimore Car Works is building 1,200 Baltimore aud Ohio standard box cars, with all ir.od ern improvements. The American Car and Foundry Company has an order for loO refrigerator cars and 10 im proved hors9 cars have also been ordered. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad has only received 1,000 of the G.000 Schoen steel cars ordered sometime ago, and when the remciniDg 5,000 are delivered, will have 6,360 cars to add to the '15,000 now in use. WHITE SLAVES. Efljrta Ha&ins to Stop the Cursed X raffle la Russia. St. Petersburg Cor. New York Times: In view of the International Congress to be held in London at the end of the present month for the dis cussion of the beet measure to be taken for the prevention of the "white slave" traffic, the Novosti has lately been publishing detailed accounts of the manner in which this business i3 car ried on in Russia. The trade has de veloped1 to a great extent in the past few years throughout Western Europe, but the town of Jassy is its center. The women are bought, particularly at Leipsic, during the great annual fair, but it is the capital of Moldavia, which is the central point of the traffic, ju3t a3 Khartoum was formerly the mar ket place for the human merchandise imported from Abyssinia and Central Africa. From Jassy the merchandise is directed to Russia and Turkey. Next to Jassy, Brussels has become the most important center for this business. The white slaves destined for Russia are generally sent to Riga or to Vilna, where the wholesale merchants from St. Petersburg and Moscow meet to make their selections. These they transfer at once to the principal cities of the empire and to the remote prov inces of Siberia. There wa3 recently arrested in Odessa an agent of the principal Russian "white slave" mer chants, and at his residence a volumi nous correspondence, with sub-agents at Jassy, Brussels, Riga and elsewhere, was found. Thanks to this edifying correspondence, the Russian police as certained that white slave agencies ex ist throughout Russia, in rural dis tricts as well as in the principal cities and towns. In some of these letters the sub-agents mentioned that they had "exceptionally fine merchandise at a relatively low price, five parcels (sic) in all." Then there followed a detailed description of the goods. The Odessa agent in question has been exiled to Siberia, where he will spend the next ten years. From what I hear, the Rus sian government considers the white slave traffic as an international curse, which can only be successfully eradl cated by the united efforts of all civil ized nations. It is well known that the czarina is herself deeply interested in this matter. Whence Came the Japanese The people of Japan have shown such adaptability to European ideas that particular Interest attaches to the conclusion of a writer In the "Transac tions" of the Japan Society that the ancestors of the present inhabitants of Japan built the sepulchral chambers called dolmens in that country. No slmrlar dolmens are found anywhere in Asia until the search comes westward to the shores of the Caspian sea. "and for more closely allied form it i3 nee essary to go yet farther to Western Europe." It is shown that the orig inal inhabitants of Japan, the Ainos, were driven out by invaders from whom the present inhabitants are de scended. - Behavior Is a mirror fn Tyhlc! even pet displays his iaaxa. i mm mm Bourke Cockran Leads the New York Delation. CHICAGO MEETING OPENED. Not Half the Delegates Appointed Trcm the Several Slates Show tp Strung Convictions Manifested. Chicago. III.. Speciil The con't eme on the uses and abuses of trusts and combinations began Thursday, with less than half the delegates ap polpted by the variom States in at-tc-.ance. New York, headed by W. Bourk Coc kran, and Wisconsin, were nii numerously re.resenttd. The lnieting tcok place in Central y.v.Mr H-il. sno wa? called to order at 10:30 by Franklin H. Head, the tenipuiary chairman appointed by the chic fed eration, on ubo.se call the conference was arranged. The delegates listened to an address of welcome by Attcrney General Aiken, of Iillnol-. representing Governor Tanner, who was prevent 1 from appearing in person, by reason of business affairs. Mr. Aiken was fol lowed by Dr. Taylor who welcomed tho delegation on behalf of Mayor Har rison. With the progress of the speak ing, it became evident that many of the delegations had come whh firm convictions for or against trade combi nations. The speech of Mr. Wootea. of Texas, delivered during the afternccti, in which he hammered the trusts in a merciless manner, aroused the wil iest enthusiasm in the ranks of the labr representatives ar.d the delegations from many Western and Southern States, while Easterners generally smiled critically and kept their am;-; folded. The attempt to round the some what shapeless mass oi! delegates into working form resulted in considerable disorder. It was resolved, finally, that the Civic Federation, through its chairman, Mr. Head, should conduct the meeting, and that a committee on programme consisting of one man from each State delegation and one from each organization, national in its scope, should be appointed. Los'al or ganizations in attendance were given a voice in the committee by being allow ed to vote on the committeemen with the delegation from their States. Th? labor organizatons did not sure rec ognition until vigorous speeches had been made by Augu t Gans, rcyrrsent- r.g the Knights of Labor, ar.d John W. Hayes, also a Knight of Labor dele gate. The non-attendance of many dele gates was not unexpected ar.d Secre tary Easley announced that probably a hundred of the tardy ones, incluiias Governor Pingree, of Mieb'gan, v.uiM be present at succeeding s?s.-io: Among, those present were: W.
