The following is an extract from his interesting and carefully prepared achhess : I submit a report of the tobacco transactions in Winston during the current year from October 1, 1890, to October 1, 1891. In order to show the annual growth of the to bacco business in this market I shall include the figures embodied in Mr. Hanes' excellent report of last year covering the sales of leaf tobacco for the three years last pre ceeding the one just now closed. Thinking that it may be of addi tional interest I will also submit a statement covering the sales of manufactured tobacco for the same period. The sales of leaf have been as follows: us with feelings of deepest gratitude and loyalty to Him. Mr- Wood also alluded m pleas ant terms to the new home which had bt n fitted up for the associa tion during the past year, and in concluding his remarks said : "Encouraged by the past I con gratulate you upon the outlook for the future, and wish for each and all of you continued peace and great prosperity.

Yesterday was cool and rather unpleasant, preventing a number from attending the Exposition. Ex hibits continue to come in and im provement is being made constantly. To-day is Virginia day, and the "Old Dominion" will be represented by distinguished speakers. Raleigh people should turn out in full force. Among the latest it is said that a car-load of exhibits of iron products from the minOs around Roanoke, Va., is en route to the Exposition. PROMINENT YI.-ITOKS. SPECIALTIES AT THE 1854- ESTABLISH T.

These statements respecting both leaf and manufactured tobacco show an increase in volume of the tobacco business for Winston eminently sat isfactory, and of which her people may be j ustly proud.

Special Cor. State Chronicle. Raleigh, N. C, Oct. 6. Col. L. L. Polk, in a three-column state ment, published in this morning's Chronicle, anent the charge that he acted the part of a coward at the battle of Winchester, charges me with the authorship of "letters written from Raleigh to certain papers and reproduced in other papers," ti eating of the matter. You will please allow me to make a statement through your columns. Several months ago, after several North Carolina papers had stated that Lieut. Polk had "proved a coward in battle," I sent a tele gram to a Washington paper for which 1 correspond, detailing the facts in the case as I learned them from Thomas P. Devereux, Esq., a reputable citizen of this city. The dispatch appeared in the form of an interview with Mr. Devereux, who stated that he and Gen. Bryan Grimes saw Lieut. L. L. Polk lying in the shade of a stone fence, and that when questioned about his conduct he replied that he had a cjiill. The dispatch contained no comment from me except tho following : "Ilis critics say it is strange, to say the least, that a man with a 'chill' should have sought the shady side of a stone wall in the hitter part of a fall month." That is the only reference I have made to this charge in any paper for which I correspond, either reg ularly or occasionally. The dis patch was copied, however, by many papers all over the country, and may have been added to . by some 01 tuem. Hut I am not re sponsible for that. "Col." Polk says that I have given currency to a report that a Lieut. Ellerbee, of the same regi ment, was caught skulking at the same time, when, in fact, Ellerbee had been dead nearly two months. "Col." Polk makes that statement at the expanse of his veracity. I never heard of Lieut. Ellerbee be fore i o-day. He also says that I stated h-x when Gen. Grimes c.inght him (Polk) "skulking," he remarked "with an oath" that he would have him court-martialed. That is also untrue. If Gen. Grimes useo proiane language i nave no knowledge ot it. A man so loud mouthed in his complaints of "mis representation snouiu. oe more careful how he misrepresents other people. "Col." Polk should not forget he is now a "public character," credit ed with a vaulting ambition, and that his acts and history are legiti mate subjects of newspaper com ment. He should also remember that most people believe that he is en- I gaged in a direct attempt to dis rupt the Democratic party of North Carolina, and he should not com plain if, in dancing to that tune, he is called upon to pay the fiddler. Very respectfully, Maxwell Gorman. Mr. Thos. Whitehead, Commis sioner of Agriculture of Virginia, and Maj. Wm. T. Sutherlin, of Danville, Ya., Chan man of the State Board of Agricult ure, were in the city yesterday, sent here by the Yirginia State Board of Agricul ture, to examine the exhibits of the Inter-State Exposition and make a report. They were taken in a car riage in the afternoon by Com mis siorer Robinson and Prof. Massey, and they paid a visit to the Agricul tural and Mechanical College artd will spend to-day at the Exposition. At 11 o'clock they will, with Mr. Wilcox, of Yirginia, deliver addres ses at the Exposition grounds. These gentlemen are among Yir ginia's most prominent and useful citizens, and the CnnoNiCLr is glad to welcome them to Raleigh. Mr. Whitehead is a brother of the late Dr. Whitehead, of Salisbury, and uncle of Dr. R. II. iriiitehead, pio fessor of medicine at the University, and is a pleasant and accomplished gentleman. Major Sutherlin is a leading farmer and manufacturer, whose influence in the State is very great. It was Major Sutherlin 's speech at the Richmond celebration, when the Lee statue was unveiled some months ago, that brought tears to all eves. When fully aroused, he is said to be one of the Old Dominion's most eloquent sons. He has made a fortune at farming, and sold a farm years ago for $27,000.

The steamer City of Rome," which arrived from Liverpool to-day," had three deaths during the voyage.

The building of a number of to bacco factories of unusual huge ca pacity this year auda greatly to Winston's facilities for handling the coming crop, and shows that her to bacco men are keeping pace with the progressive spirit of their day. By their enterprise and progres siveness the establishing of the Southern Tobacco Journal in our State became one of the important transactions of the year and will be felt foi- good by the entire tobacco interests of North Carolina.
