Port Arthur which began at noon
on November 26th is still in progv

an attempt. was made to capture
the forts at Eihlung and Kekwan
mountains by penetrating the
principal line of fortifications
surrounding them , and to envelop
the city from'; the east. At the
saiae time a strong force pushed

of enveloping the city', from the
west .The attempts failed after
the most furious fighting that has

Hold Voir Cotton.
The Wilmington Messenger ex
presses the opinion that the far
mers should not be frightened at
t bellow price of cotton incident to
tbetarge orop report, but should
continue to hold what cotton they
have until the flurry is over. That
may b&all right, at the same time
any opinion as to what the price
of cotton will be is only so much
gue88 work. Greenville Reflector.
It is true that it is all guess
work as to what will be the price
in the future. . But it is not guess
work to predict that the price of
cotton will go up if the farmers
will hold their cotton and not put
it on the market,,; The law of sup
ply and demand is bound to apply
to this as well as to, any other
commodity . The farmers able
now, more than ever before, to
hold their cotton. If they rush it
on the market thereby aiding in
keeping :the price down at the
present low figures ; it is their own
fault.' We firmly believe that the
price will soon go up if the cotton
is kept off the market. We do
not think that the tcovemment
estimate of 12, 162,000, if it isoor-
rect, should cause such a slump
in the price. iThe world will need
all of the twelve million bales.
The bears are using these fig
uresto reduce the price. They
are playing on the fears of the
farmers forcing ; them - to sel
through fear that the. price jwill
go still lower, whereas all that is
necessary to advance the price is
for the farmers to hold the artiole
and make the millmen anxious to
secure it. Wilmington Messen
