But Secretary Ayer could never get his "committee" together to pass on the merit of any article or ad- vet tisement submitted, and red rust is eating at the vitals of that iob press because of disuse while neither proof press nor mailing machine has been sent forth on the mission for which it was made, for want of a claimant.

(From Our Regular Correspondent.) KAl-EioH, N. C, September 3, 1900. The meeting here during the past week of the Cotton States Association of State Commissioners of Agriculture was an in teresting one. hue only about a half- dozen States were represented. United States Secretary of Agriculture Uson was present and the address delivered by him, the State Commissioners and oth ers (including President Winston of the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts) were very timely, instruc tive and interesting. a 9,000.000 hale crop of cotton. Probably the most important outcome of the meeting was the estimate, prepared and given out after careful enquiry and consideration, made of the size of the cot ton crop for the year 1900, viz.. 9,3G4, 500 bales. The crop of 1899, Avhich vras a short one itself, was estimated at 10,2."0,000 bales, so that the crop of 1900 will not be only one of the smallest of recent years but will be, according to the estimate, nearly a million bales less than 1899, or, to Ik? exact, 885,000 bales less. North Carolina was put down at i!.,- 000 bales, which is considered a very liberal estimate, for unless the balance of the season is very propitious and the sup ply of labor (said to be short in many counties) ample to pick it, the crop this year will hardly reach those figures. This short crop means that our farmers ought to, and doubtless will, receive ten cents for all their cotton raised anu marketed during the season of 1900-1901 , and if the market does not approach that figure at the start it will be good policy for evrey cotton grower who can do so to hold his cotton, and hold it as long as he can, for the price is certain to reach ten cents before the season is far ad vanced. The foreign crop, especially in India (on account of the famine), is rela tively even shorter than in the I'nited States, and, of course, the foreign demand for our cotton will be heavier than usual. In addition to all these, and other facts tending in the same direction, there has been an unprecedented growth in the cot ttm manufacturing business of this coun try, particularly in the South, and hun dreds of thousands of new spindles must be fed this year for the first time. So the increased price will largely compensate our farmers for the damage done by the drought 1 am very glad to be able to add. SOUTH TO SET PRICK OF COTTON. One of the most important and gratr fymg points made by I mted States Sec retary of Agriculture Wilson and others was the declaration that the South now has more to do with setting the price of cotton than ever, and that it will event ually be in a position to do so absolutely, instead of having it set in Liverpool, Manchester and other Knglish manufac turing centres and in New York. The change is being wrought largely through the rapid growth of cotton man facturing in the South. The 'estimates'' of the growing crop each year should be made in the South also at least the con-1 trolling one, and this new Association of Cotton States Commissioners will largely figure in this hereafter, instead of having one man or firm in New York and one in New Orleans do it, with the chances of attempting to control the market in their own commercial interests and that of their 'friends" on the inside as has been the case of recent years. NORTH CAROLINA MANUFACTURES ABROAD. North Carolina is certainly Coming to the front rapidly, in the acquirement of a reputation with the outside world as a manufacturing State. Not only as the cotton manufacturing leader of the South, but along other lines. One new industry is especially attracting attention at pres ent, viz., the splendid patent Elastic Felt Mattress manufactory of Messrs. Itoyall & Borden at (ioldsboro, whose claim of turning out the "most comfortable and best bed on the face of the earth," has just met with a great recognition at two of the greatest expositions of the year, one in New Y'ork State and the other in the West, and from other outside sources. The result is that these Felt Mattresses (every portion of the material, as well as the beds themselves, being made atGolds boro) are now selling 'iike hot cakes" all over the country, and the manufactory, already a large concern, will soon develop into one of the biggest in the country, in order to supply the demand. All our home folks should provide them selves with these splendid North Carolina beds, which are in the reach of all, and if they will drop Messrs. Koyall & Borden a postal at (ioldsboro, they wiil send them a descriptive pamphlet explaining more in detail the merits of their product picture of which you will see in this paper. STATE CONFERENCE OF NEGROES. llev. C. II. King, a negro preacher, of llaleigh, who is president of a State as sociation of negro '"leaders' of some sort. has called a meeting of the association to be held in llaleigh September 20th. "for tne purpose of considering educational. industrial find political matters." Noth ing more definite is given out as to the real object of the conference. I am told, however, by llaleigh negroes tiiattnis is tlie same association of which d'eorge White, the negro Congressman, is or was (probably in the past tense now) a prominent member, and of which it was proposed in the spring or early sum The Kind You Hare Alwavs ture of Chas.

It's dol lars to doughnuts, however, that White wiil not even be in attendance. COTTON MILL BTRIKE1W OF DURHAM DES TITUTE. Many of the striking cotton mill opera tives of Durham are in a destitute condi tion, and an appeal has been made to the citizens of that city to aid them in pro curing the necessaries of life, although it has been only two or three weeks since they emit work at the Erwin mill. The ' organizers" of the union (whose work caused the trouble) and the visiting "labor leaders,' whose advice they took, now have a fine opportunity to be of some real service to these unfortunate people. But they have all "moved on' to some other town. The strike was ill- advised and no preparation for the future by the strikers, hence their distressing condition. It is to be hoped that tney and Mr. Erwin (whom even the strikers say was always kind to them) and the operatives will yet get together and set tle their differences and the men return to work at their old places. Manaaer Erwin has since announced that no one shall suffer for the want of the necessities of life in West Durham, whether they are "strikers" and union operatives or not, and that he will re lieve every case brought to his attention. He troes farther and requests that all such be madeknown to him in orderthat he may send provisions, etc., to the homes of the sufferers. This humane action and the fact that the strikers are still oc cupying the houses owned by the Erwin mill speaks loudly in Mr. Erwin's favor. MINOIl MENTION. The election of Rev. T. X. Ivey, of the Raleigh Christian Advocate, as president of the North Carolina Press Association, at the meeting at Asheville last week, was a most admirable selection. Lr Ivey is one of the most erudite and forcible writers on the State press to-day, and a most charming gentleman, withal. The writer has for years been laboring in season and out of season, and using every opportunity and avenue at his command, to secure a State Reformatory for young criminals in North Carolina It is therefore a pleasure to note that the Press Association has adopted the prop osition and passed a suitable resolution m its favor. e 11 get it now-. It is said that the Republican Congres sional convention of the Fourth district, which meets here next week, will nomt nate ex-Congressman John Nichols, of Raleigh, who defeated John W. (jrahani some 12 years ago. lie will ruu as a "sound money" man. The Populist con vention meets here the clay after the Re publican convention, viz., September 11th. The A. & M. College will this week be gin the largest attended and most sue cessful session in its history. President (i. T. Winston has his whole soul in this work and is making a great success of it Tom Jones, the negro "preacher," was hanged here in the jail enclosure last Fri day for the murder of a negress and four of her six children. He previously sold his body for 10 to a Raleigh physician, and it will be used for scientific purposes at a negro medical college here. Stanly county is to have a new cotton mill, Morrill Brothers & Heath having taken out a charter. Looks as though our North Carolina cotton mill men will get tlie best of the Northern commission men who have been "doing" them heretofore in dispos ing of all Southern yarns to consumers and jobbers. Our folks will establish houses in theNorthand sell direct. Good! The Southern hosiery yarn spinners will hold a meeting at Atlanta September 12th. JNlr. Bryan s chances are growing brighter daily, and many former Repub licans are announcing that they will sup port him. In this State ex-Senator Sharpe, of Iredell, is among the latest of the new converts of prominence. Of course, he will carry North Carolina; there is not and has never been any good rea son for believing there was even a doubt of this. LLEWXAM DOES IT PAY TO BUY CHEAP?

Go to a warmer and more regular climate" Yes if possible; if not possible for you, then in either case take the only remedy that has been introduced in all civilized coun tries with success in severe throat and lung troubles, "Boschee's German Syrup."
