The indications point , to an in creased acreage of cotton through out the South this year, an increase which with favorable seasons will probably give a 12,000,000 bale crop, and this in spite of all the warnings by the Southern press, by leading Southern cotton growers, and by others who are not cotton growers but are interested in the cotton crop. In all our reading we do not remember to have seen but two ad vices to the contrary, one by Mr. Inman, of Georgia, and the other by a writer in South Carolina whose name we have forgotten, both of whom advised the farmers to raise all the cotton they can, the reason assigned being that the planters generally are. going to do that, and therefore those that don't, and raise but little cotton, will have but little money, for withthe inevitable low price of cotton it will be necessary to raise a good deal to get any jnoney out of it. This isn't pre sisely what they say but this is pre sisely what they mean. If all the farmers in the South fol lowed their advice cotton would not bring three cents a pound next No vember, and the indications are that entirely too many oi them propose to follow on that line, whether they have read this advice or not, and . raise all the cotton they can, hoping to get as good prices as they did this year and blindly taking the chances on prices that will not pay the guano bills and-ior the labor done in mak ing the crop. The market reports a few days ago contained the follow- ing: ''Manchester was not so good be cause of the heavv discount on the prospect of a large crop next season." The Macon Telegraph, which like many other papers in Georgia and in other States, have been warning the farmers of that State against an in crease of acreage, makes this - brief but significant statement -the text of the following pertinent editorial: !!This sentence contains a Whole ser mon to those cotton growers who, un der the influence of existing high prices for cotton, are apparently disposed to plant very largely of the staple this year and by the virtue of high priced commercial fertilizers to make the crop of 1900-01 a record breaker. "The object of the planter is not to raise the greatest possible amount of . cotton on his place, but to raise the quantity which will bring him in the greatest net return for his labor and expenditure. If this is the fact he should bear in mind that statistics show that a 10,000.000-bale crop in the present state of the consumptive demand is the most profitable crop that can be raised. When the figures ia bales go above that figure, the return in dollars goes as steadily downward. "The result is always the same a big crop, little money, a small crop, big money. "Under these .conditions these is one, sensible course for the cotton planter to follow: Ruse every grain of corn needed on his place, and if he makes a little surplus to sell his less thrifty neighbor or his fellow citizen -of the towns who has to buy, no harm will be done; so lay his plana as to kill and cure all the meat he needs, and here, too, a surplus might prove profitable; set aside land enough to pasture his f3airy herd and his bunch of beef cattl, and to provide winter forage for them; and then he should feel at full liberty to plant every acre in cotton that he can cultivate, gather and market. If this plan should be pursued by every farmer iu the cotton belt the cotton planters would hold the world in their grasp. They could market their cotton when it was most profitable for them to do so and would receive prices for it that would pay them a reasonable profit for the rais : ing of it." It is a singular . thing that with the experience the planters .of the South have had for some years in growing cotton, and the opportuni ties they have had to study the effect of large and small crops on the prices paid, they would need any counsel ,on the subject of cotton growing, or any warnings to keep out of the rut in which they had travelled for so many years to their sorrow and to the ruin of so many. In this case the adage about the burned child dreading the fire doesn't seem to hold good. If any cotton grower were asked why it is that the prices received for '. the last crop marketed have been so much better than the prices received fdV TTianV Vaara npaviAna Iia n.An1i7 4- j j - m... mw l. V U1U WW once say it was because the crop was smaller than it has been for the past few years, which, in connection with the smaller crops . in other cotton growing countries, brought the cotton crop in sight within the world's demand for consump tion, and consequently put prices np. There isn't a planter of ordi nary intelligence anywhere in this country whq does not know that, and he knows, too, or should know, that these priees will prevail just as long as these conditions obtain and not a month longer. A crop in ex cess of consumption just "as surely means a toppling of prices as taking away the supports from a pole that is not planted in the earth will cause its fall. The prices of cotton, like the prices , of everything else, are governed by the quantity produced. If that be more than is needed for the world's mills the prices will go down; if less, the prices will go up. . The mills of the world need for the world's consumption at the pres ent time about 14,000,000 bales, of .which about 4,000,000 are grown in other countries than this. To keep prices anywhere at a reasonable figure the world's crop must be un der 14,000,000 bales. If it goesorer that the millers feel easy about their supplies. They will be in no hurry to put in stocks and will feel their way and be very cautious in the prices they offer, for they know the growers of this cotton cannot as a rule afford to hold it, and there fore they have no fears of not being able to get all they wantJThis is business. The manjwhtTis Bure of being able to get what he wants at any time is never in a hurry to get it, never hurries to lay in a large supply when the prices are more apt to go down than, up, never hurries to put prices up but buys as low as he can and only in such- lots as he needs, thus holding his money in hand and himself in a position to take all the advantage of the mar kets. " - ' If the planters who grow the cot ton showed the same discretion and judgment and business tact as the' millers who spin and weave it, there would be few overcrops, except, perhaps, in ' seasons when nature was .unexpectedly propi tious. Each one would act for him self and regulate his own acreage on business principles just as the millers regulate their buying by the marketable crop. It is useless to expect anything: like concert of action among so many planters, in habiting such a large area. As this can't be had then every farmer should act for himself and knowing as he does that the prices he will get will depend on the aggre gate' crop produced, so plant and so regulate his acreage as to keep that aggregate down to a figure that will be somewhere in the neighborhood of the world's demand for -consumption. With a crop anywhere under the 10.000,000 bales, allow ing for the 4,000,000 produced in other countries, the Southern cotton grower will be safe. With a crop anywhere over 10,000,000 bales' he will not be, and the more it goes over 10,000,000 bales the worse o he will be; MR. CUNNINGHAM "WITHDRAWS The letter of Hon. H. M. Justice withdrawing from the race as a can didate for Governor was followed by a letter from Col. Cunningham, which was published in (he Raleigh papers Sunday, in which he also withdraws. He regards the triumph of white su premacy as' the essential thing, and therefore to more perfectly solidify the party he withdraws that it may unite on some other candidate. This letter breathes such a good, patriotic, inspiring spirit that we herewith re produce it: Cunningham. N. C , March 16, 1900. To THE EDITOR: I believe the suc cess of me Democratic party this year is paramount to the ambition of any man and that each member of the party ought to yield his own wishes iu ine interest oi ine unanimous action. I think that is also important that the candidate for Governor, who is rightly regarded as the leader of tbe party, should be selecttd as far as possible without contest and with practical unanimity. Holding these views and desiring always to do what is best for the party and tbe State, and believing- what is the welfare of one is tbe welfare of the other.I have decided to with draw from the race for Governor. "I congratulate myself that in the contest which I have made, I -have done nothing to create any enmities and that the friends of other candi dates have been considerate to me and of my friends. ,-I have endeavored to conduct my campaign upon a high plane of politi cal ethics, indulging in no unkind criticism or harsh statements concern ing any one. "Every patriotic citizen must admit that the success of the party in the coming campaign is more important than tbe triumph of any individual, and that party success at this time should be placed high above every other consideration. "The constitutional amendment is at issue and it must be decided in favor of White Supremacy. "My friends throughout the State have been loyal to me and they have laoored in my behalf with effective earnestness and zeal. To them I am truly grateful, and it is to them that 1, turn with sincere pride and shall ever cherish their loyal support as the brightest page in the history of my life. "They have waged a vigorous con test, and the assurances of support which I have received from many sources have been warm and encour aging. I deeply appreciate every kind word they have spoken in my behalf and I feel they will understand my action in retiring from the race at this time, since I can assure them and the good people of North Carolina that I am taking this step because I believe that it ia in the interest of party harmony for me to do so, and because I think my retirement will in a measure sim plify the situation and increase to some extent our chances of party suc cess. Every one who. knows me will understand that my best services from now on, as they have always been in the past, will be at the command of the Democratic party, and I have never failed to enter into the thickest of the fiht whenever the principles of our party have been assailed or white supremacy threatened. Very respectfully, John S. Cunningham. The office of Governor of North Carolina is one that any citizen might be proud to hold and no high er tribute could be paid to his un selfish patriotism and loyal devotion to the State, than when, in his opinr ion, her interest "would be best pro moted by withholding from the race, a citizen voluntarily does that when there was a fair prospect of his nomination and election, and this, is what Colonel Cunningham has done. He had many friends (bnt not more than he 'has now) and might have made a strong fight for the nomina tion, but realizing the necessity of presenting a strong, united front to carry, white supremacy, a matter of much more importance than the am bition of any man, however worthy or commendable, he like the true Democrat and patriot he is, volun tarily withdrew that the paty may present a more united, enthusiastic and solid front. The probabilities are ' that Coi; Theo. F. Davidson will shortly .fol low the example bf Messrs; J ustice and Cunningham, thusleaving Hon. C. B. Aycock the only candidate in the field and assuring him in ad vance the nomination by acclama tion. . - ' A STATEMENT OP FACT. Hon. Marion Butler continues to receive reminders from Populists who object to wearing his collar on their necks or his ring in their noses, and to obeying his command to op pose and vote against the proposed constitutional amendment, the ob ject of which is to make white su premacy permanent in North Caro lina. .We have published several letters from such Populists and here with present another from Mr. Adajn Clark Wentz, of Roper, Washington county, which we find in the Roan oke Beacon, in which he thus de clares for white supremacy: D'ar Sir: Complying with your r qust for a statement of my politic.! los i.ion. and my views as to the pro posed Constitutional Ameudmeat; I desire to say that, while I never have been an active politician, I nave been a zealous Populist ever since the party came into existence.- But now the Populist party has fallen to pieces of its own weight. In fact disintegration has been stead ily going on in the party ever since . the notorius untrustworthy seventeen ia the legislature four years ago, sold out the party to the Republicans for a few offices. Since that time, the leaders seem only to have sought an opportunity to advance their own selfish purposes, regardless of party policy, or party in? tf rests. Such a course naturally de stroyed all confidence in them, and left the old ship without a pilot. And inasmuch as the Democrats ad vocate all the reforms that the Popu list stood for, and the chances of se curing these reforms seem mnch bet ter in that direction, I shall therefore vote with the Democrats in the com ing election.' ' I can see no reason why a white man should not support tbe proposed amendment to the State Constitution. Confining myself to 'a plain state ment of a fact, its object, and itb only object is to get rid of a goodly num ber of ignorant negroes at -the polls. In my bumble opinion the sooner this is done the better for all concerned. And it will be done. 83 mote it be. Adah Clark Wextz Roper, N. C. March 14,1900. There are thousands of Populists like Mr. Wentz who view this ques tion just as he does, who do not be lieve that party fealty requires them to obey the dictates of Marion But ler and other unprincipled schemers by antagonizing their ; own race and standing in with the negroes and leaders of negroes, to enable Butler and those conspiring with him to hold their grip and continue to enjoy the emoluments of office, and there fore they will stand with the white men in this grand fight for the per manent establishment of white su premacy, on which their future pros perity and peace and the prosperity of the "State depend. This is' true of all the State but more especially of the Eastern portion1 of it, where we have had a taste of negro domi nation. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.

A Man of Sterling Worth and High . Christian Character. ; It will be with uufeumed regret and sincere sorrow that the numerous friends of Capt William S. Warrock will . receive this morning the an nouncement of Lis death, which oc curred last night at 9 40 o'clock; at his residence in this city, No 309 South Second street after a lingering and paiuful illness of nearly three months with an affection of the liver. I j For several dajs it has been known that the condition of Capt. Warrock was very serious, and while bis death was not whollj unexpected, it never theless will come as sad news to those who knew bini and who could but ap preciate his sterling worth and the sub-' stantial Chi is ian character which marked his course through life. E There were at bis bedside at the time of his death his sorrowing; wife and an only brother, Mr. Ed. Warrock, f Savannah, Ga., who arrived only yes terday to be at his bedside; Mr. Lewis Warrock, a nephew, and" his sister in law, Mrs. E. S Warrock, of this city, all of whom have the deepest sympa thy of friends in the sad . bereave ment which has overtaken them. V Capt. Warrock was born in Eliza beth City, N. C , August 2nd1835, and was therefore in the sixty fifth j ear of bis age He was a nephew of the late Jno. Warrock. of Richmond, Va., one of the best known men of. his State, and publisher of "Wanrock'a Almanac," a publication of influence and wide circulation in tbe sixti-s. Before the war Capt. Warrock was for some time engaged as a school teacher in this State and also at Mont gomery , Ala. At the outbreak of the war, he enlisted in the cause of the Confederacy serving tbrdughout the war with credit and distinction to him self and' regiment in Wheeler's Cav airy. Toward the close of the war in recognition of his gallantry and cour age in battle, he was promoted to captain of his company which rank he held until the fall of the Confederacy. In November. 1865, he came to Wil mington and had been until the time of his death continuously in the em ploy of the present proprietor of the Morsino Star, as foreman of the Job printing plant and general superintendent of the mechanical de partment of the paper, which position he filled with rare skill and ability and with the most perfect satisfaction to his employer. Faithful to every duty and with the highest sense of honor, his life was a most exemplary one. He was an Elder in the First Presbyterian Cnurch ana was a member of the Ma sonic order and several other fraternal and benevolent organizations. On November 15th, 1859, he was married to Miss Oeorgie Harris and she, with the relatives mentioned, survive him. There is no one who knew the sub j-ct of this brief sketch who will not mourn hisdupartureandsay that when he crossed the river to rebt in the shade there went a food and a true man. Quiet, unassuming, unobtrusive, be moved through life pursuing the even tenor of his way. but filling every duty assigned him with tbe loyalty and fi delity of the most loyal and faithful. As a soldier battling for the South, be was ever at his post bravely and patriotically doing his duty there; as a citizen he was devoid of selfishness and labored and voted for the public good; as a man in his dealings with his fellow man he was scrupulously honest and tbe soul of honor, es teeming bis word as sacred and bind ing as the written bond ; as a Christian, without pretence he illustrated in his every day life the princip'es he had imbibed, and in private and. public was the consistent follower of the ' Divine Teacher; as a friend, he was true, and as husband fond and devoted to her who shared his life with him and now weeps over the companion who has been called away from her. j : ' Such is the legacy of memory this good man leaves to those who knew and loved him ; a better no man could leave. General Lee once said that the grandest word in the English , lan guage was "daty." With that word "duty" inscribed on the stone that will mark the resting place of William S Warrock, it would be the truest, the highest eulogy and the most appro priate epitaph. SPEAKINQ IN DUPLIN.

MrsHurd Inherited a tendency and pre . disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed and is cursing the lives or thousands and marking thousands more as vic tims of the death angeL Transmitted from generation to generation, It is found in neary every family m one form or another. It may make its ap pearance in dreadful running sores, In unsightly swellings in the neck or goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing in the lungs it may bo and often is, the prime cause of consumption. I ' Speaking of: her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years with a bad skim disease. My arms anj limbs would break out In a mass of sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very unsightly in appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions My eyes were also greatly Inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very much. My blood was In a very bad condition and my head ached severely at frequent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also in my ears. I was in a miserable condition, I had tried every remedy that had been recom mended, and doctor after' doctor had failed. One of the best physicians in the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption; as internal abcesses were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottler more as an experiment than any thing else, as.i; had no faith In it and greatly to my agreeable surprise I began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking it. I took a great many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the sores healed npall the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health, and I have never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course an old lady of 83 years Is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA is the greatest blood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did not lok to be more thn sixty, and she repeated several times, -1 believe mr life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA." j . lOSXGkaUCV X3X.T73r CO For sale by Fire Alarms Yesterday.
