Agricultural Depantment Estimates Crop
at 10,417,000 Bales.
The statistician of the department
of agriculture estimates the- achal
growth of cotton in the United States
for the year 1902 03 as 10,417,000
bales, of an average net weight of
490.7. The estimate was published
last Wednesday.
The area picked or to be picked is
estimated at 27,114,103 acres, reduc
tion of 764,227 acres, or 2.74 per
cent, from the acreage planted. The
total production of lint cotton is esti
mated at 5,111,870,028 pounds, an
average of 188.5 pounds per acre.
The estimated prodnetion by States
in pounds, of lint cotton per acre is
as follows:
Virginia 248; North Carolina 2364
South Carolina 199; Georgia 165;
Florida 120; Alabama 144; Missis.
sippi.220; Louisiana 262; Texas 148;
&rkansas 268; Tennessee 252; Mis
,oari 252; Oklahoma 282; Indian
'erritory 244.
The phenomenally favorable weath- t
er that has prevailed almost contin-|<
aously for some weeks past through 1
)t a large portion of the cotton belt
das made a substantial addition to|
he cotton crop as indicated on Octo-|,
)er 3. All the eight States which at l
hat date reported higher than at the t
orresponding. date last year, have
till further improved their positions, t
while two (Louisiana and Missis- '
tippi) of the five States compared 1
infavorably with the year 1901, now
eport slightly higher average yields a
er acre than a year ago, leaving |
[eas, Georgia and Alabama with t
in unfavorable showing. e
The commercial crop will consist n
)f the above mentioned 10,417,000 t
)ales, together with I54,592 bales t
)roght forward from last year, (
ibout 250,000 bales of linters and e
iample cotton, and so much of the t
rop of 1903-04 as may be marketed j
efore September 1, 1902, andso f
nch of this same crop as may be 1
arried forward to the year 1903-04.|,

[News and Courier.] |
Washington, D. C., December 9.-| 9
President Roosevelt, who is chafing |
mder the demands for his settlement e
>f the controversy between the white c
md black factions of Southern Re-| t
publicanism, caused it to be stated| a
it the White House today that the|e
administration, meaning himself, is| a
lisposed to regard as '"'officious and
premeditated" what he calls "the in-|1
~erference" of the North Carolina
nembers in Congress in the case of |r
the negro postmaster, Vick, which is |t
he most acute case now under con- l
sideration. The President argues|]
that the action of Senator Simmons |
und his Democratic associates in the |
Elose in entering formal protest |
igamst the appointment of a riegro|i
postmaster is merely a political play |
bo put him in a position where he|t
will be hurt with either the. negro
vote of the country or with the
Southern white Republicans. Pres
ident Roosevel' fears that should he
ref rain from giving Vick another
term as postmaster it would be de
lared by the North Carolina Demo
rats and Democrats throughout the
country that he had turned Vick
down because he was a negro. On
th other hand should Vick be again
given his position the Prestdent
would be proclaimed as hostile to
the sentiments of the Southern white
men of both parties who desire to
eliminate the negro, and at the same
time the assertion would be made
that the President was opposed to a
decent Republican party in the
Soth. He is in a hole and is wor
ried over his predicament.

Commander Jno. B. Gordan Says They
Must Eschew Politics,
The following general order has
been issued by Gen. John B. Gor
don, commander in chief United Con
federate Veterant., through Adjt.
*en. George Moorman:
As many communications have
been received lately, asking these
headquarters if it is permissable for
U. C V. camps or officials to endo rFe
andidates for political office, and if
Q. C. V. camps or officials can, with
propriety participate in politics to
my extent; for the information of

ishes his circular letter No. 136, of
late January 2, 1901, with the addi
;ion to it of section 4, article X of
he constitution.
As circular No. 136 is in strict
sonformity with the terms and intent

hat no infraction of the constitution

igious action of any character, or by

Lidates for office, or otherwise, by
,ny of the oamps of the U. C. V.
sociation, or U. C. V. officials in
heir official capacity.

D a period in history which they
onsecrated by their valor, and im- J
nortalized by their stainless deeds
hey occupy an unique place in his
ry, as there can never be another
onfederate soldier-"That bright
st young nation in the annals of
ime," and the cause for which they
ontended has been placed by the
-rtunes of war in a niche in the Ab
ey of Ages; leaving a record to

It is, then, the duty, and honor de

J. V. association shall see that its
~enevolent features are not tarnished
E any manner, nor diverted in any
ray from the pure, noble and phil
nthropic purposes which its found
rs intended, and which its articles
eclare in article II of the consti
cution, by using its praiseworthy
rd beneficent system for political or
'ther purposes foreign to its high
nd holy mission.
Circular Letter No. 136 is as fol
ws, and will be strictly enforced:
"I. It having been brought to the {
otice of the general commanding
hat one of the camps of this asso
iation has violated section, 1, article
X, of the constitution, by endorsing

s it may have been done from in

"'Article IX, Section 1.-No dis

ects, nor any political action, or en.

Federation of United Confederate
"'Article X, Section 4.-Forfeit
ire of membership shall be declared
against any camp allowing political
or religious dis.'ussion or taking any
such action."'
"It is of course right and proper
for individual members of camps to
endorse their friends for political
and other offices, and to try and ob
tain positions for old comrades in
their declining years, by all honora
ble means within their power, and
their loyalty and friendship in this
way can not be too highly commend
ed: but under the above sections no
such actions of a United Confeder
ate Veteran camp, collectively nor
any officer of the association,officially,
will be tolerated by the association.
