AHQTHER COMPETITOR. ; Yesterday we published an article on the restriction of the cotton acre age in the South, in which good and sufficient reasons were given by the writer why the acreage should be limited, sojimited that the produc tion in this - country t added to the prod notion in other countries, would not exceed the world's demand for consumption, which is now about 14,000,090 bales. There was much in the letter which we published to interest cotton growers who think as " well as work, and so is there in the following, although it makes no reference to Southern cotton acre age, which we clip from the New York Commercial: . "Modern eogineers suggested to the Egyptian Government that if a dam were to be built a little way south of Cairo, so as to provide a storage reser voir, then all tbe delta country of the Nile could relj upon the irrigation as certainly as it could upon the rising and setting of the sua. Taat work waa undertaken, and experience has shown that tbe eogineers predicted with a ecu racy. , "With storage reservoirs large enough to secure certain irrigation every year for the enormous valley of the Nile, then that most fertile terri tory becomes a certain and vast pro ducer of agricultural products, the command of which will be of almost inestimable advantages to Qreat Brit ain in tbe struggle for commercial su premacy wbich is now beginning. "Already Egypt raises one tenth of the cotton supply of the world, and it is a kind of cotton which has advan tages recognized by every manufac turer, especially of cotton thread. It is the long staple cotton, and expect ing upon our sea islands we raise very little cotton of that character. . With permanent irrigation and with, modern methods and modern agricul tural implements there seems to be no reason wby Egypt should not in the near future raiaa a majority of the cot ton which the Eoglian manufacturers need. Undoubtedly it was that which has induced the British statesmen and financiers with the earnest encourge ment of the manufacturers, to aid Eypgt in financing these public works, i Eagland sees a colony practically as near to her aa are the cotton fields of the United States providing for her a staple article for which she has been in great measure dependent upon the United States. With a better oualitv of cotton, with the exception that sbe cao get it to the doors of her minu facturers at less cost than American cotton. Great Britain sees in tbe de velopment of the immense Nile Val ley by the cotton growers an oppor tunity to get tbe mastery of what is to be one of the great features of tbe world's trade tbe cotton goods mar ket." . We have been supplying English manufacturers with about 4,000,000 bales of American cotton, about one half the" ordinary crop. It was to make England independent of this country for her cotton supply that prospect ' before' him the' 3onthef u cotton grower should be putting himself in a position to meet the future by dividing his acres so as to raise I less cotton and more of other things to make him indepen dent of cotton? And doesn't it seem that it should be his policy to grow more cotton to the acre than he has been raising, thus rednoing the cost of production and . being" better able to meet competition from other quarters, and also en able our manufacturers, upon whom he must eventuallydepend, to suc cessfully compete with their Eng lish and other rivals, who draw their supplies of raw material from the Egyptian, Southern Siberian and, Indian fields? - There was a time when it looked as if the cotton manufacturing in dustry of England might be trans ferred to this side of, the ocean, bnt there is no longer any probability of that if -this new Egyptian field meets the expectations of the Eng lish manufacturers, but instead of that they will be. in a better posi tion to compete with American, manufacturers than they have been since confronted with American competition. Bat this is not all for there is the Southern Siberian field capable of an immense production of cotton, the cultivation of ' which is being fostered and stimulated by the Gov ernment. The production in that region has increased so muoh within the past few years that the Russian mills, which halve largely increased in nnmber within the same time, are now practioaly independent of other countries for their supplies of cotton. And yet cotton-growing is bnt in its infancy in that vast do main. -Here, then we have the new ter ritory in Northern Africa, and the new territory in Southern Siberia as competitors of the Southern cot growers, to supply the cotton for which the European mills depended almost altogether upon our South ern fields. There is a condition confronting the American', cotton growers which he must consider if he would follow cotton growing as a business and expect to get pay for his time and labor. The sooner he seriously considers this condition and regulates the crops of his acres so as not to be dependent upon cot ton the better it will be for him and for the Sonth.

AMERICA LEADS. This country has" become the in dustrial leader and to some extent the industrial dictator of the world. That she can retain that position there is no doubt, provided broad- gauged 8tatesmanahin nr avail and English capitalists put their money whether it does or not will depend in the Nile dams, ensuring reliable very much upon the statesmans'hiD.

Heretofore England has received ., a considerable quantity of cotton from the Nile valley, as the mills in this country also have, though less than the English mills, for the long staple Sea Island cotton grown in portions of the Sonth answered the purpose for which it was wanted. following, whifth n lin frnm hA What the possible production of Philadelphia. Times, give some iaea oi me progress made by this country compared with other Euro pean countries: this enlarged Eyptian field will be we do not know, but if the soil be as fertile as it is said to be it should be large. Prom the article we quote the opinion seems to be that it is large enough to supply the English manufacturers with, most of the 4,000,000 bales they need. This means something to the American cotton grower and also to the American cotton manufacturer, South and North, for it means a new cotton region as a competitor, and means competition for the man ufacturer. Heretofore the Sonth has practically dominated the cot ton growing industry, for the Sonth alone grew the kind of cotton suit able for the better qualitv of goods. The only staple to compete with it "No wonder the European powers are exercised over the phenomenal in crease or American export trade. The Special Star Tetegram.y . Balkiqh, N. G, March 18 There were two sessions of the 8enate to-day. Tne morning session was taken up eutirely by Judge W. P. Bynum, Jr., counsel for the defence, in masterful argument of three hours outlining the defence. Be maintained that the prosecution must prove not only a violation of the constitution in issuing a mandamus upon tbe 8tate treasurer but the violation must be shown to be with willful intent He took the posi tion that the amount due Tbeophilus White for which a mandamus was issued was not a claim against the State, the suit being in reality on the part of the 8tate to compel payment of salary to an officer, the money aa a peciflc appropriation being in the baoda of Xhe treasurer for payment. The doctrine thai office is property has, he urged, stood for sixty years in North Carolina. Tola afternoon Chief Justice Furehes went on the witness stand. He was under cross examination when a recess was taken at 6 o'clock. He bore him self with great dignity. His direct testimony was in justification of his course on the bench. He testified that in their rulings in office holding cases, the court was not influenced by any partisan bias, but solely by the law on questions at issue. He said of a dosen or more office holding cases pained upon by the court they decided a large majority in favor of Democratic par ties to suits. The cross-examination was by James H. Pou, Esq., and was not characterized by any important developments. Great crowds are attending' the trial and interest grows with each day'a ses sion.

But if a substitute be found for the American cotton and that substitute can be delivered at European mills for a lower or even the same price the European market will be closed to American cotton. Then the Amer ican grower must either find other markets or he must reduce his crop to meet the new conditions. How long it may be before this will happen can't be told now, but as Englishmen are interested in it the probabilitiesare that , they will exert themselves and do all they can to stimulate and encourage ex pensive planting so they may the sooner become independent of America, from whose competition they have been suffering for the reason tnat the American had the cheaper raw material and an un limited supply of it. With Egyptian cotton to take the place of the American at - as flow or a lower price the English manufacturer will, as far as that goes, stand jipon the tame plane as the Ameri can, and then successful competition will binge upon other things, such m labor, machinery, transporta tion, &o. alone. $63,000.- crease or si uuu,uoo, Belgium a de crease $12,000 000.
