WILL UNIFICATION PLANS
-The next general conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
probably will decide for tin present at
‘ least, flic fate of plans to unite the
-- Northern and Southern Methodist
; Churches. Until the conference meets
it is practically impossible to tell
what the result will be although there
- are many indications that the propos
■ ul is not so popular in the South.
2 The Northern Church, taking the
- action by conferences as a concensus
of opinion, is practically unanimous
.. in favor of unification. That means
that the general conference of the
' Northern Church is certain to give its
approval to the merger.
B In the South, judging by voting in
conferences which have been held and
< prhxh will send representatives to the
general conferences, there is not so
much unanimity. Several southern
conferences have voted in the negative
- and the vote in others has been close.
| Even among the Bishops in the South
* ern 'Church there is difference of
" opinion and the Bishops who oppose

$ In sme circles the prediction is J
1 freely made that the proposal w 11 be
* defeated in the next general eonfer
- ence of the Southern Church. How
ever, some of the leading figures in
i the Church are working diligently and
■ effectively and they may be able to
turn the tide in favor of the merger.

|pigHE TRUTH “WILD OU T."
! Kj&ay by day the public has become
||l|*p*e’ convinced that something was
wrong with the story told by the. Un
ion county man who charged that he
was bound and gagged by four men
and criminally assaulted. In bis first
report the man said he was mutilated
because one member of the gang said
he had not paid his grocery bill.
We admit there are all kinds of peo
ple in this world and some of them
are cruel enough to mutilate a man for
most any excuse, but it was hard to
believe that any one would so abuse a
mau because he did not pay his bills.
The more this charge was thought ov
er by the public the more unreasonable
Soon after the condition of the man
. became known it was rumored here
' that family troubles had something to
do with it and now the stepdaughter
of the victim of the operation admits
that she and the man have had im
moral relations for some time, despite
, the fact that she is only 15 years old.
1 That sounds more like the truth de
spite the fact that her story is denied
by the man. Union county people
have insisted all along that “Sheriff
j Fowler will get the facts” and it ap
j pears now that he is getting near the
! cause of the trouble. It is hard to
: keep the truth aud tile old adage that
I “the truth will out” holds good in
most mystery cases.

Weekly Cotton Review.
New York. Sept. 18.—The buying
movement which developed in the cot
ton market shortly after the publica
tion of the last government crop re
port became more active and earlier
in the week, evidently stimulated by
a fear that the otherwise beneficial
rains in the southwest were too vio
lent and were doing more damage to
open cotton than good to the plant.
The lower temperatures reported in
eastern belt sections were' considered
favorable but it was questioned wheth
er there had been any check to de
terioration in the drouth area east of
the river, and between the two fea
tures there seemed a more or less gen
eral tendency to scale down estimates
of the crop.
This was accompanied by reports
of a more active demand for cotton
goods both at home and abroad, and
claims of a steadier spot basis in the
South which suggested that spinners
were buying against forward require
ments. As refleetiton of these con
ditions the market sold up to 25.12 for
December Thursday morning repre
senting an advance of over three
cents a pound from the low price
touched toward the end of August.
At this figure realizing became a fae
tor and there were reactions later in
the week in consequence while there
also appeared to be a little more hedge
selling during today's trading.
Local brokers attributted the more
irregular and rather easier ruling of
the market bite in the week to the
evening up of commitments in prepa
ration for next Wednesday’s govern
ment crop reports. The private mid
mouth reports so far issued have
shown rather a wider range of crop
ideas than usual the figures running
from about 18.100.000 up to 14.143,-
000 bales, while the majority of the
reports have pointed to a condition
of around 52 tot 53 with a crop indi
cation of around 13,500,000 to 13,-
700.000 bales compared with the Sep
tember Ist indication of 13.740,000
With private estimates so far apart
there naturally has been more uncer
tainty as to the official showing Wed
nesday when some traders have pre
dicted a lull in spot demand after the
filling of September engagements. Ad
vices received from Texas late in the
week, however, said the basis was
about unchanged und there were ru
mors of large export commitments for
