DEVASTATION OF OUK TL1IKEK.
The Wilmington Messenger,
in view of the reported disposal
of their timber by the farmers,
got an interview recently with
Mr. H. McL. Greene, who seems
well versed in the lumber busi
ness. He deplores the fact that ;

ABOUT CELLING THE COTTON CROP
Wake county has an organizaS
tion called Hie "People's Mer
cantile and Storage Company,''
of which Capt J J Thomas is
provident, that has for its object
tho boring of cotton on which it
'rill m"! v:nco money and enable
the cotio'i raisers to wait for bet
ter prices. It is a well-known
fact that most of the cotton is
put on the market almost as soon
as it is picked. This can be cal
culated upon in fixing the price.
A con vent ion of cotton raisers is
railed f ir in Raleigh on Wednes
day oLiair week. October 11th,
at 11 o'clock, to consider the

crop. is a well-known fact

timber and leave the tanners
in very bad shape. We have no
idea that tho evil prevails in our
section and hope it does not. Our
farmers should be shy of long
and lasting leases on their tim
ber domains. There should be
no hurry to throw it all on the
market at once. Properly hus
banded it will be a source of reg
ular income and a protection
against droughts, and other evils
of treeless regions.

vexing question of selling the j
COttUxi viOp. I
We eiouoi. very much whether
'ho av . :. ie prim of cotton can
be vei iiiUcli advanced, for
si ;l. ,o :t, be, the South might,
ane ;.:oobly would, be success
i'uiiy com eted with in the fur
ihji development of cotton
raising in Mexico, South Amer
b :h Africa and India. Capital is
cr. ' ki:ig that way now, with
. iow prices, ospeceaily in
j.ivOvico. But as we understand
Mr. Allison's object, it is that
the South pat herself in position
to na hie the price at which cot
ton shall sell for the year, mak
ing the prices of the. grades ab
solutely uniform during the year.
This arrangement entered into
oetv.een the raisers and rnanu
f : (ai-er . o: cotton is desirable
beyond question. To carry the
plan into effect is the only problem.
We are, as a people, such hero
worshipers that wo jumped to
the conclusion that our Hobson,
after being kissed all the way to
the Pacific, had raised those
boats in Manilla bay but tho
Richmond Times says:
"Among the naval officers ac
compaying Admiral Dewey home
on the Olympia is Naval Con
strucler Washington L. Capps a
Virginian, who has covered him
self with glory by his signal vic
tory over Father Neptune in
raising from Manila bay the Don
Juan de Austria, the Don de Me
lon, the Elcano and several other
Spanish vessels which Dewey
sunk on May 1st of last year.
Lieutenant Capps was appointed
io the Nrval Acadetnv from Vir
ginia and was made cadet engi
neer October 1st, 1880, naval ca
det August hlh, lsSlb assistant
naval constructor June uYh, lrtss,
and naval constructor Jan. L'Sth,
1895, wUh the relative rank of
lieutenant. Under the naval per
sonnel bill, the rank became ac
tual. Lieutenant Capps was on
dutv at the Union Iron Work's in.
San Urancisco and was chosen
for the work of raisng the ves
sels. He proceeded to Manila
and did his work and Hobson
now has the boats at lloug Kong
putting them in shape."
By the way we remember read
ing a few days ago that some
one said there was not much in
tho Dewey victory anyhow. It
was only a set of old tubs that
he sank. But then it miy be
asked what wo want with the old
tube after raising them.'
We are of the opinion, how
ever, that it was a brilliant
tory and that much honor is
the men that sank the tubs
th3 men that rahol them.
said in part: 'I judge you are
under tho impression that the
mountaineers of North Carolina
are essentially barbarians, This
is a very serious mistake. While
there are a great many illiterate
people in the mountains there
aro also a groat many educated
people, and for sturdiness of
of stock and excellent common
sense there aro no people in this
country who surpass tho moun
taineers of North Carolina. This
section of the State has devel
oped very materially in the past
25 years in evory way, but it has
always furnished men of marked
ability and patriotism for the
service of their country. One of
the Senators from North Caro
lina at present is a man who
came up out of the poverty and
illiteracy of these mountains. Z
B Vance, late Senator and ex
Governor, and a man known
throughout the country and the
best beloved perhaps of any
North Carolinian, came out of
the heart of this rugged moun
tain region. And even a man as
great as Abraham Lincoln is
known throughout North Caro-
una as tne illegitimate oiisprmg
of these unlet tered mountaineers,
I suggest that you make a trip to
Asheville-and explore the coun
try roundabout in order that you
may have a correct idea of the
held which you desire to culti
vate.' Dr. Tompson goes on to
say that there are excellent
training schools for whites and
blacks in operation in the State."

Tilijanos Releasing Prisoners.
Two Englishmen who said they
had been wrecked in an open
boat last July in Philippine wa
ters and were captured by the
insergents and held as prisoners,
wereallowelto come through the
American lines Monday morning.
They brought fresh assurance
that the fourteen American pris
oners held at Tavlac will be
released soon. The delay
was due, they said, to a lack
of suitable clothing for their
prisoners. They also brought
the assurance that Lieut. iGU
more and his men at Vigan will
also be released soon.
