"I see no reason why, with the shortness of the ctlbn crop and the demand for cotton by the nulls, cot ton should not go to 12J cents by or before spring. "We arc 600,000 bales short of this time last year, counting receipts and all cotton in sight. Knglisb spinners who have been idle for months haw now resumed operations. Mills in this country arc very short on rotton. They have been wailing to buy, ex pecting big November receipts to press down the price of ootton. In- sUd of the price going down on big receipts, it begin to look like a scramble for cotton. "Better prices are warranted bv present conditions. Last year Ihe far mers gitt no benefit from the rise in the price because they disjioscd of their crop before the price was put up, after the shortness of the world's supply became known. This year the farmers ought to get the benefit. They should not break the market by rushing their cotton to the buy ers. 1 hey snouid sell it as the spin ners need it. Farmers can get ad vances on cotton from the banks and hold it. There is ootton held in Kal- eigh now by fanners who did not lake tlie V cents oner a tew week igo. They can now sell at an ad vance or hold for further advances. I'lie farmers are now in better con ilition than ever to hold their cotton, rhey have made their supplies. "For the first time in its history. the South is now spinning more cot ton than al 1 the balance of the L'uited States. In the next decadu we will be spinning fifty r cent, more cot ton than now. The manufacture of cotton is steadily aiming South." thus spoke (.apt. J. J. I nonius. president of the Commercial and Far mers isank in Kaleigh yesterday. There is no man in Kaleigh whose opinions about cotton are entitled to more consideration than those of Capt Thomas. He hag been in the cotton business all his life, and in Italeigh and Baltimore has made a great success. If any man in North Carolina may be called a cotton ex pert that man is Capt. Thomas. Therefore his views were solicited for publication for the benefit of the forty thousand readers of the News and Observer. This is Right. I.amtortna Airaa, We trust the jury in Dr. Jay's case will not be led, through the outcry against the Tillman and Haywood verdicts, to bring in a verdict of mur der in the first degree, for, while the man should be severely punished for allowing himself to become crazed with drink, it is clear that he was crazy at the time of the slaughter of his children and, consequently, his crime could not be adjudged worthy j the death penalty, according to the written law of this Plate.

Two hundred strapping bluejack ets, neat and clean in their best uni forms, were received in the east room at the White House by the president and Mrs. Roosevelt at Z 30 yesterday afternoon and later they partook five negro seamen among them of light refreshmeota in the state din ing room. They were the enlisted men of the U. 8, 8. Maytkiwer and the l a S. Sylph, both of which craft are much used by the president and his family during the summer, and which are lying at the Washing ton nary yard. The commander-in-chief of the army and navy and the gracious first lady of the land were merely expressing by this reception, one of the moot unique ever held in the White House, their appreciation of the thoughtful service always ren dered them by the crewg of both gal lant ships. Incidentally, the function repaid the fe'stle dinner which the crew of the Sylph gave the president and Mrs. Roosevelt at Oyster Bay last summer. The commissioned officers of the two ships had nothing whatever to do with the cervmonv. Commander (! leaves of the May rkmer and Lieut. Preston of the Sylph arc both much liked by the president and Mm Ituuscvclt, but they received no invi tation. Commanded only bv the petty ollieers, the bluejackets marched up Ihe circular driveway at the w hue House and into the east rutin. There they passed in line, each shaking hands with the president and receiv ing a word from him, while a smile and gracious greeting was forthcom ing to each from Mrs. KoosevelL The president was extremely cordial to the bluejackets, many uf whom he knows by name. Alter the reception, when the blue jackets had gone back to their ships. iie excitable person began to talk about "a repetition of the Booker Washington dinner," because the ne gro members of the crews had par taken with the rest of refreshments in the cast room. Such talk, how ever, finds no serious lodgment here, and everywhere it is pointed out that the only mistake, political or other wise, the president could have made would have been in not receiving the negro sailors. A Pioneer Preacher's Strenuous Sundays. Some veara ago there was a little town in Pennsylvania named Tarport, but familiarly known as "llell-on-Wheels." There were from fifteen hundred to two thousand people there, living in the little "shacks" that arc common in oil towns. A nearby preacher who wanted hard work told the people of "Hell-on-V heels" he was coming there to preach. "We don't want you," they said; "there's nothing but a camp here anyway, and in six months there'll be nobody here." "I'll tike my chancel on that," said he. "Wc can't guarantee you any salary." they said. "I II live out of the hat, said the preacher. He took the only four hundred dol lars ha had in the world and built himself a little house in Tarjiort. Here is the way the young parson wasn't afraid of a hard job sent every Sunday : In the morning he preached at larport in me opera house. After mid-day meal he took the train to Limestone, four miles away, and at three o'clock in the af ternoon he conducted a preacmng service for a handful of a congrega tion there. After church be walked back four miles on the railroad tracks to Tarport, took a hurried nap and a bite to eat, saddled his horse and ride horseback nine miles to Coleville, where, to the accompani ment of clicking billiard balls and eliiikinir plasm's, he nreachcd in a - , - - room over a saloon. Hiding oaca to Tarport on horseback, his plucky wife would welcome home tlie minister-husband between eleven -thirty and midnight He "passed the hat' at these three services, and they lived on the result: sometimes fivo dollars a week, sometimes as high as fifteen dollars.

The elections of last week, which occurred in eleven States, produced no surprises. As a general thing the Republicans and the Dcrrnvrats each carried what they were entitled to. Tom Johnson, the most breezy fig ure now in politics, famous for the advocacy of single tax and other more or less chimerical theories, was de feated for governor of Ohio, and Mark Hanna's return to tlie Senate assured. Nebraska Republicans beat the fusion of Democrats and IVpu lists led by Mr. Brvan. One signifi cant result was the success of the Democrats in Maryland, led by Sen ator (ionnan, who thus become a leading candidate for tlie iimu lencv. The fight between Tammany Hall, the so-called Democratic organization in New York citv, and the fusion forces or Citizens' I'nion, attracted the at tention of the country and resulted in the overwhelming victory of 31c- Clellan, Democracy's candidate for mayor, over Low, the present fusion mayor. Democrats all over the I" nited States look upon this victory as indi cating tlie Kwsibility of the Demo crats carrying the Male of New lork next year for ihe national ticket. But, as we see it, even this would be too great a price for our chief city to pay for the reinstatement of ram many Hall in tlie government of New York. Six years ago Greater New York was created, the corporation embracing a population of more than three millions twice as great, al most, as the imputation of the State of North Carolina. In the first elec tion Taminanv Hall elected Rolicrt Van Wyck as mayor and for four vears governed the citv. The ad ministration was so corrupt and vic ious, that two years ago the people arose in anger and disgust and over threw the organization ; Seth Low was elected mayor for two years, the term of office having in tlie meantime been cut down from four to two years by order of Tom Piatt, the Republi can boss of the State. The reform government was not at every point a success, but it was far away and be yond better than the Tammany re gime of corruption in every phase. But the people have short memories, and so they have put back the "grafters" and the robbers. Talk about Tammany giving good govern ment! t an the stream rise higher than the fountain? From Murphy, the chief ooss, down, the Tammany leaders are low-bred men who have made fortunes out of corruption in politics and in nibbing the public. Almost every one of them, including Murphy, is an ex-bartender or saloon owner. (Jan a leopard change hi skiu? 0 0 0 Prof. J. S. Bassett. of the chair of history of Trinity College, has pub lished a very foolish and untimely article on the race question that is amusing violent discussion, and just ly so. He declares that the negroes will eventually obtain social equal ity, and that Booker Washington is the greatest man liorn in the South, save General l,ee, in a hundred years. A man may believe a thing with his whole heart and still do himself, his cause, and his country a great harm hy giving expression hi his views. No one could object to Pmf. Bassett believing these things if he wants to, but he is not treated unkindly when he is excoriated for uselessly insult ing and outraging all the sentiments of his neighbors and friends, and spreading sentiments that can work only untold harm to the negro race. 0 0 0 Ordinarily a South American rev olution attracts little attention, but one that has just broken out in Cen tral America is of a diRcrenl charac ter. It will be recalled by newspaper readers that Colombia, the State to which the Isthmus of Panama be longs, rejected the treaty with the United Mates by which our govern ment was to have the privilege of building a great canal acrtws the Isthmus of Panama. Now the peo ple of Panama are very much in favor of the canal, and so they were bitter ly disappointed and disgusted when their government rejected the treaty. They have therefore seceded and are setting up an independent republic. The United States has two gunboats there and is using our bluejackets to protect foreigners. Luropean dis patches Indicate that none of the gov ernments over there will interfere. but will leave the whole matter to the discretion and action of the I'nited States. Will our government recog nize the indeiendeiice of the Repub lic of Panama r If it does there will be nothing further in the way of con structing the canal. O O .'0 Discussing the prominence given the race question in politics now, the C harlotte Observer makes tins timely comment: "We honestly feel that the president is largely responsible for its prominence and acuteness and, it having been forced upon public attention, the Democrats, wherever they could do so notably in Mary land have turned it to account '. , . We do not believe that it would have been in politics anywhere tins year but for the president scon duct It fa time for him to let it alone, for everybody, everywhere, to let it alone ; for it to be allowed to go to sleep.

We are reluctant to "tag a moral to it" Tu him tlut reads and finds Dot a lesson deeper than any analysis can reveal, nothing can be said. Learn the story, teach the story ; and beyoud all peradven ture it will carry its lesson tu fathers and sons. Contemplate if you raa the tribes of Israel dividing this story into verses and comments ! Kv no such metkids has its mighlv influ ence been carried. lUtlier as fathers have come into fatherhood, they have thought of the woes of David; and as sons have found strange ambitions throbbing in their breasts, they have seen Absalom hanging from that tree. So have the ages received this lesson; and the modern teacher cannot im prove uon the method. If you make sure that you know the story and make your pupils know it that is cmMigh. God punishes his servants for their disobedience by disobedient chil dren. There will be a hell in the hereafter, but well might the father of a thankless, wayward child cry out that he is punished so as Satan and his minions and the fiery lake can never punish him. David did wrong and he reared his son wrong; and all the goodness of his life, all the repentance and all the prayers could not avail to save him from this terrible reaping. And God rewards his servant who obey by giving them obedient chil dren: and the whole world bears wit ness that no joy surpasses that that a father has in a worthy son. He reduce this conclusion then, that a man's life is in his children ; not in his money, not in his power. In the hour that Absalom turned against him, think you David found joy in his kingdom? In the hour of his triumph, think you David found joy in the restoratian of his Mwer ? That fearful anxiety for the boy in the hour of battle ; that unshakable anguish when the boy's death was brought home to him, answer suffi ciently. Ihis is the lesson to fathers, that one child badly reared can turn all their glory to ashes. Ihere are those who say that Da vid's grief was inordinate. But who will say that it was not human, natu ral, reasonable 1 God has made men so in order that they will rear their children aright and thus move each generation onward to the day of ieace. The other side of the lesson is the lesson that Absalom learned name ly, that selfish ambition, that unlilial conduct, that unrighteousness re warded after death arc rewarded in life. He had his day of glory, as the wicked often have, but consider him as he hangs there, a wretch in death. W hat of his beauty now, what of his wealth, what of his popularity, what of his glory, what of his schemes ? The lowliest man on earth cannot envy him. And all forfeited to wick edness. We arc reminded once more that the home is the heart of life ; that it is the basis of success. Here begin nd end all the elements of life. Here is the hope of righteousness, of holi ness, of happiness. e have found an interesting an alogy drawn by two commentators between David as father f tiotl as father, illustrating how God loves his rebellious children even as David loved Absalom. In support of this we are offered the sacrifice of Jesus ; and the words of Jesus himself as he wept over Jerusalem. A Runaway Bicycle, Terminated with an ngly cut on the leg of J. B.
