than 115,000 soldiers to the war. In

ADULTERATED LARD SUPPOSED
SIGNS OF PROGRESS.
It is said that of the lard com-
pounds manufactured in the North,
at least one fifth is cotton-Seed oil.
We do not know bow tbe latter af-
fects the health!. It may be as health
ful as "gut fat" and other oleaginous
productions. But when a man buys
lard, be prefers not to be buying
something elsei A great cry went
up that oleomargarine must be sup
pressed, but not a word was. said
of cotton-lard and ' other compounds
- i .
that were fraudulent and deceptive.
The New York Times, referring' to
the Armour admission of the enor
mous use of cotton-seed ou as an
adulterant in the manufacture
called lard, says: I I
"A ton of cotton-seed yields from 35 to
40 callous of oil. It has recently been
stated by persons familiar with the business
that 500,000 tons I of seed Were crushed in
the mills last year. The oil product was
therefore from 17.500,000 to 20,000,000
nitons. Mr. Armour admits that he used
in his lard factory one-fifth of this, or from
8,500,000 to 4.000,000 gallons." I I
Cotton-seedi oil is very much
cheaner than lard, and one pound is
equal in manufacturing to 1J pounds
lard. The Times says the adultera
tion is not confined to lard, but enters
into the Northern cheese. It says:
"Merchants in the cheese trade declare
that this adulteration injuriously affects
nnr ernnrt trade, the auantitv of cheese ex
ported having fallen from 147.995,614
pounds in 1881 to 86,868,685 pounds in
1888. Only one-sixth of tbe cottonseed of
int ve&r'a croD was crushed in tbe factories.
The business of making cotton seed is.
therefore capable of expansion.",
; Years ago the papers called atten
tion'to the fact that large quantities
of the oil were 'shipped from New Or-
leans to Italy l and : that it; was - re-
nn..J hranVled "OHve ; oil." In
1886 alone 6,574,000 gallons 'of the
potton-seed oil were shipped- abroad.
Amour; and Company, with ' their
J tTeeive pew: mills, can supply' Italy
and the cheese makers as well athe
lard adulteraters with all thes cotton
seed oil k they may . need. Id, the
mean tirae the people are tbe Victims
I of frauds." When will the Southern
farmers learn to raise their own pork
and make their own lard ? -'
-There are a hundred pounds of
E so-called lard brought into North
Carolina now to one pound that was
imported in 1860. It is a shame to
see bow blinded the -people are to
their ' own interests. Farmers feed
ing stock on Northern hay and on
Northern corn; farmers feeding their
families on Northern canned goods
and cabbages brought across the' At

The fathers were not wise, but are
the children wiser? Have the men of

the men of 1850-60? Do eating

Northern j merchants for flour and

and material advancement? We
tri w not. These things mean beggary

of those best informed and witn a
wide range 45f vision the South in
1887 is really tar less prosperous
than it was eighteen years ago? We
nave no doubt that the people as a
whole are very much worse off, be
cause they were only poor and strug
gling then, bat now they are poor
and struggling and heavily in debt.
The manufacturing 'developing is
genuine and important. Jtsut it is
local and is not a, drop in the bucket.
While the increase in this depart
ment of labor and enterprise is mark
ed it is not a drop in the bucket com
pared with the losses the South has
sustained in the last three years by
reason of short crops and low prices.
The South by these two causes is
poorer by at least $500,000,000.
Until the system of farming

velopment, no substantial improve
ment, for agriculture is the true basis
of all true, material advancement.

House in this city to Jama Blackburn, on
the 3d of February last, brought suit
against J. E Sampson, the register of deeds
for this county, for issuing a license for the
marriage of his daughter to Blackburn in
violation of sections 1814 and 1816 of the
Code, forbidding the issue of such licens
for the marriage of a minor without the
written consent of the father or guardian.'
The law recitss that any register of deeds
issuing such license without reasonable in
quiry, contrary to the provisions of the set,
shall forfeit $200 tolhe person suing for it.
The case against the register of 'deeds was

license was procured by Blackburn, who
gave the age of the vrung lady as eighteen

THE BALTIMOB k & OHIO
Tbe Executive Committee of tbe Rteh
mdnd Terminal Considering Propo
altlen Relating to the Porebaae. '
New Yobk. March 10. The executive
committee of the Richmond Terminal Co.
has just gone into session. They will con
sider two propositions relating to the pur
chase of the Baltimore & Ohio stock; under
the option given by Kob e Garrett to Alfred
SulW. One of the directors I just said that
the proposition most likely to! be adopted is
that the syndicate shall : take! stock in their
interest and bold it until the Richmond
Terminal's fall board of directors approve
the action or the executive committee. It
will then be placed on collateral trust, and
the Richmond Terminal will either consol
idate tbe Baltimore & Ohio wilh their sys
tem or operate it separately as a proprietary
road. Ihe .Baltimore Ohio track, from
Ballimcre and Washington to Philadel
phia, wilt be used as a. trunk line for the
business of its own Western lines and tbe
other roads in the Richmond Terminal sys
tem. Ihe fennsylvsnia road has no inter
est in the deal, nor has the Western Un:cn.
It is simply a Richmond Terminal arrange
ment, and has no similarity to the sale of
tbe Vanderbilt holdings of the New Yoik
Central to the London syndicate, j The
price and mode of payment are about tbe
same as already published . The purchase!
of minority stock is not being corrsideTedJ
New York. March 10. The meeting of
the Richmond Terminal Executive Com
mittee has adjourned to meet at the call of
Mr; Sully, but all information is refused as
to their action. Members intimate I that
they are pledged to secrecy, and Mr Brice
is quoted as saying that premature publica
lion of the proposed plan may interfere
with the accumulation ot a majority of tbe
stock which Mr. Gariett agreed to deliver.
He also stated that be thought Mr. Garrett
only 'wanted to make a nominal sale, for
tbe purpose of amalgamating the Balti
more & . Ohio System with the Richmond
Terminal. Th is, Mr. Brice says, he is will
ing, as a director of the Terminal Company
to accede to. After the adjournment of
the committee, several of the directors met,
and all the Circumstances so far to-day
confirm the director's statement made be
fore tbe meeting was called to order.

New York,; March 11. The following
statement is made by one of tbe syndicate
which is about to acquire control of tbe
Baltimore & Ohio: President Garrett has
granted an extension of lime io which to
take up a majority of the stock and he will
not hold out on technicalities cither regard
ing exact terms or time. There is no op
tion given to any one person, but a written
agreement is in this city giving a certain
party the right to buy tbe stock, and . this
party, although not mentioned in the con-,
tract, is clearly understood by both Garrett
ana the parties conducting negotiations.
The price is not more than 200; but whether
it is less or not I will not say. Garrett will
be represented in the syndicate and Gould
will also be represented there. The sale of
the propet ty, when cul minated, will bri n g
about a settlement of tbe question of enter
ing New York city, and tbe telegraph
and express fines will be sold. Sully has
the Same interest as before in the syndicate,
and all interests are working in harmony.
Negotiations referring to tbe sale of tbe
Richmond Terminal failed on account of
the refusal of the executive committee yes
terday to consent to tbe issue of the addi
tional slock necessary . The stock will be
paid for in cash, which will either be sub"
scribed at once or -loaned by tbe First Na
tional Bank, or Drexel, Morgan & Co , or
Winslow, Lanier & Co., wbo will issue ne
gotiable certificates for it. Tbe probability
at present, however, is that tbe necessary-
cash will be subscribed. Tbe formation of
a new company is not anticipated.! Securities-may
ultimately bs sold to the Rich

price than that paid by tbe syndicate.

attention of the Criminal Couit for the latt
three days, and yesterday resulted in a ver

there was no regular examining trial, the
authorities fearing mob violence, which was
at the time quite demonstrative and openly
talked of on the streets, to allay which the
prisoner was quietly shipped to Covington,
Ky., jail, where he has been confined for
the last year. Tbe ruse at the time barely
succeeded by the clever management of the

and took possession of Jackson, for the
purpose of lynching him. They moved
out of town along the line of the Kentucky
Central Railroad. Not a shot was fired.
Jackson was taken some distance and bung

of the statement made by tbe firm four days
