And ii"'1 - nie. unforeseen disaster oc

exceed last year's crop by a milium or a
million and a half hales.
These are the figures of eon-orvative
cotton men who have studied :t na
tion, and who for years, haw made a
business of stuJving the crop. Thev
lelieve the outlook is a great deal N-ttir
than at this time last year; but disag

Said a piominen". cotton tnctor yester
day: '-No cotton man, no matter lmw
well posted, can talk with certainly
a'Kiut the cotton outlook. The possi
bility aod proUibilily of rsins and early
frost furnish so many wide opportuuitu s
for a change in the situation that it w ill
be several weeks before anything can be
said with detiniteiiess.
"The greatest danger which we have
to fear is an early frost. Such a calamity
might cu: off the crop to the extent ot a
half a million bales; therefore in speakinu
of it, it is nectssary to allow a wide mar
gin for such occurrences.
"It is just simply sues work to talk
about what the crop will be. We can
only tell what it is now. Speaking from
the present outlook, the future will k
good." 1 expect a crop of between eight

At the evening session Congressman
S. B. Alexander stilled before the conven
tion the history of the Mecklenburg road
He told of the first 111 oveaient which
gradually rrystalized into what is known
as the Mecklenburg road law; of the tight
lie had getting it through the Legislature.
The House, he said, siemed determined
that Mecklenburg should not h ive good
roads, lor fear the contagion would spread
over the State. Capt. Alexander stood by
the movement though, and in the fice ot
strong opposition fought the matter
through, being assisted by Capt. W. E.
Ardrev and other Representatives. "That
bill." said Capt. Alexander, "was; not
drawn for Mecklenburg county alone, but
for every county in the State: it would fit
Cherokee, Buncombe or any other county;
it fills the bill for the sandy counties aud
for the mountainous ones. The bill is a
local one. It works the roads by town
ships. Kadi county can regulate the
amount of tax to suit itself. Some coun
ties can keep up the mads cheaper than
others. Kvery farmer is allowed to work
out his lax. This svstem is important to
the farmer. It is an eln-tie system ; there;
is no county it will not tit' ' I
"They." continued Capt. Alexander.
'confound the convict sy stem with the i
Mecklenburg road law. Lach county
snotild work its convicts the same as
Mecklenburg. You wlil meet with delays
as we did. Our work was at tir-t crude,
but we keep on until we have our magnifi
cent sy.-tem of to-day. We have gotten
to the point where we know what good
roads aie. and the time is coming when
good roads will radiate cut ot C nnrlotte
in every direction. This system can't be
kept up very successfully by just one
county: it must extend from one county
to another, forming a net-work of good
roads ( apt. Alexander was heartny ap
plauded when he look his seat.
Capt. Ardrev read a paper on "What
Have Our Good Roads Done for the Far
mers of Mecklenburg County" and show cd
that the good roads had made marketing
opeiiitiniis and oth'i' travel so much
ea-ier hr the f 1 rmer and had -o enhanced
the Viilu. ol ret! e-tale and the pleasures

Distillery Burned.
About 9:30 a. in. Wednesday the 12th,
the distillery belonging to Mrs. K. B.
Ellis, w as discovered to be on lire. Two
buildings were burned the distillery it
se'd, and the storage house.
Mr. John Ellis, book-keeper and mana
ger of the business roughly estimates the
damage at a thousand dollars. There
wa- no insiirioice.
Seven or t ight streams ot water from
the water works played on the buildings.
The fire was a remarkably quick one,
owing to the strong east wind which pre
vailedbut the linemen worked well, as
thev always do. and all the property on
the opposite side of the street was saved,
though it seinied impossible at one time
to do so. A little loss was suffered by
the people moving out and the residence
of Mr. Bisnight caught, but was txtin-gui-hed.
The water did some damage.
A visitor to the city said he never saw
volunteer tiremen work as "ours" did yes
terday. They worked as hard as the
occasion demanded, but we have seen
them work just as faithfully when much
more ardent and risky seivice wa9 re
ipiired. Our tiremen are rightly the
pride of our city.
The Speaking at the Populist Con
vention After the buaniss of the People's Party
convention was transacted there weie
three addresses made.
The first was by Mr. E. L. Franck ol
hislow. He gave a condensed history of
linanci d legislation since 1 lie war. He
said -onie people declined you could not
legislate money into the pockets of the
people but that the Republicans had leg
islated it out and that it it could be legis
lated out it could be legislated back into
thorn. He found fault with the financial
actiou of the Democrats, and attacked
appointments that had been made by
Cleveland and confirmed by the senate,
and also the Tariff legislation.
In the main the speech was a good,
sensible one, with very little to which a
Democrat would object, except that if Mr
Franck could draw off enough voles it
would result in placing the Republicans
back in power with all the evils we en
dure 1 when they had the reins ot Gov
ernment. But there were a few things which Mr.
Franck did not tell. lie failed to say
that the Democratic majority in the Sen
ate was so small the defection of two or
three from a measure would ensure its
defeat and that it was owing to one or
two in the Senate that the bill was not
better than it was, and he failed to say
anything of how much lower the tariff
had been made on many articles in com
mon use.
Mr. W. II. Smith made a very brief
Dr. Cyrus Thompson, the Third party
candidate lor Congress, spoke at consider
able length. One of the leading leatures
in his speech was talking about Demo
cratic majorities in negro counties in
Alabama and elsewhere, and charging the
Democrats with fraud. He also advised
the colored people not to le led off by
what Isaac Smith or anybody else might
sa v.
Rev. J W. Rose's Home Mission Work,
According to appointment Rev. J. W.
Hose addressed the congregation at the
Baptist church Thursday night, making
a report of his work. Usually he makes
such a report every three months, but the
regular order having been interrupted
his report last night covered tive months
Daring that time Mr. Rose has preach
ed 122 sermons, an average of 24 per
month. He conducted the services at
eight different points, and in journeying
to and fro between them he travelled 900
miles, distributed 2,230 pages of tracts
and made 118 religious visits.
Wheal Mr. Rose, under the charge of
the New Berne Bipiist church entered
upon this work 21 months ago there was
not a church of his denomination at any
of the places he is serving. Now there is
a church at Cove with 21 members,
(when it was organized there were only
seven) and a building which was erected
a year ago, and which it has beeu wor
shipped in every since,though some work
still remains to be done upon it when
means permit. This was the first church
There is also a house of worship being
erected at Spring Garden, and an orga
nization will be effected there upon its
completion which will be the first of next
At Truitt's free church an organiza
tion has been effected ard a portion of
the money which went to build the
church which is as its name applits for
any denomination was raised through
the efforts of Mr. Rose and his co-laborers.
This church has 13 members, eleven of
whom were baptized about a month ago
as a result of the meetings held the fir-t
of August which were conducted by Mr.
The work is mainly carried on by the
New Berne church which undertook it in
addition to its own support and the other
objects to which it contributed, but there
has been 8100 raised in the field for
church building and $40 for other pur-po-cs;
while the New Berne church has,
in addition to what it has paid Mr. Rose,
raised $160 far :hurch building.
Results a iv coming and it is be
lieved that it will only be a question of a
lew months vihen their will be four
churches in operation, which are likely to
become nearer self-sustaining all the time
until they become wholly sc.
This is the true spirit of missions. Pass
nn to others as opportunity permits those
blessdigs you have received, and make
ihe su ritice that may be necessary. The
reward will come.

Only an address by Hon. H.G. Shaw .
Democratic nominee for Congress, was
announced for last night, but Dr. Cyrus
Thompson, Third Party candidate for
the same office, being in the city 1 la
speaking was turned into a joint discus
sion. The discussion was opened by Mr.
Shaw. He showed up the absurdities ol
the Third party very strongly and defied
any one to show any good done by any
populist in Congress. He showed that
on the other hand they bad introduced
bills which would have called tor 35 bil
lions not millions,but billions of dollars;
showed also that Pfefer wanted all taxes
upon real estate, a pretty strong reason
against any farmer's wanting such a party
in power.
Mr. Thompson talked on many Ime
and covered as much ground as any
speaker could have done in the same
length of time. He said among things
that he had been asked if he would vote
for a negro if nominated and that the
purpose of the question was to drive off
whits men if he said yes, and colored
voters if he said no, but he said lie would
tell it honestly, that he did not believe
the colored men wanted him to vote for
them, that with rare exceptions he did
not think they were fit to hold office and
that for these reasons he would not.
As in the daytime before the congres
sional convention, Dr. Thompson charg
ed elections frauds upon Democrats and
predicted revolution unloss thev were
His spoech abounded in wit and was
enjoyed even by those who did not agree
with him at all.
Each speaker ably championed his
party, show ing up its merits and the de
merits of the other. They were speeches
from which voters could learn, but then
there were more personalities indulged in
by each speaker than we liked to see. A
broad discussion of the issues upon a high
plane is preferable.
Democrats have much to gain from
these discussions. Thev bring out ihe
truth and present it forcibly to the voter,
and with a proper understanding of what
the Democratic party is accomplishing in

I that will be achieved in November will
