Greensboro, Jan. 27. The ginners re
port published Monday shows a total
: ginning to January I5th, of -9,938, 111
. bales which was 100,000 more than was
generally expected. . The market im
. mediately declined 30 points and closes
today about 50 points lower than one
week ago. Those who have p'nned
, their faith on a ten million bale crop
must at last see their mistake. A gen
eral liquidation and 'spill-out'J of the
speculators long interest i3 taking
place. Whether the crop finally turns
out loj or 11 J is of less importance
than the next crop which will soon be
the topic, wherever "King Cotton" is
; discussed. It was almost unfortunate
' day for the south when the cotton grow
era association ' declared for 15 cents
per pound, because it will stimulate ef
fort and increase acreage in all sections
throughout tha world that can grow
cotton, j we hear already that dealers
in mules and manufacturers, of ferti
lizers are preparing for a big business
Enough cotton is coming out from day
to day t- supply what little1 demand
there is. The reason the spinners do
' not buy more freely is hot because they'
are unfriend y to prices, but because
they have already bought freely
and enough to cover their orders
in hand. ' The stocks . of cotton
in the Siuth are large, and the otton
famine" so muoh talked of is not in
ight. Our estimate on the whole crop
is 11,017,000 bales.

Sheriff L. W. Tucker of Pitt county
ai rived today, bringing two negro con
victs, one - of whom will serve a five
yoars sentence for burglary and the
other twelve years for secret assault.
Sheriff Tucker also reports that tho
negroes whs Bhot a constable in Pitt
county two weeks ago were convicted,
one of murder in the first degree, and
the cither of murder in the second de
gree, having been sentenced to the gal
lows and to twenty five years imprison
ment respectively. Both cases were
appeal d. It will be remembered that
these negroes were halted in the road
by an officer who stood on the back of
a vehicle while : riding, the negroes
having refused to submit to an arrest
and having fired on the constable imme
diately as he alighted from the vehicle.
The supposition is that they were mem
bers of a regularly organized gang.
Hillard Reid, formerly one or the
best among the Raleigh negro barbers
and holding a position as janitor at the
Raney Library, in this city, was ar
rested about daylight this morning in
the pool and news stand of Robert
Lewis, on Fayetteville street. A syste
matic thieverp ha been carried on at
this place for quite a while and suspi
cion rested on Reid, but it was not un
til last night that the evidence was of
a sure nature- The negro was detected
and Mr. Lewis employed a revolver
with sufficient usefulness to allow the
arrest of the negro by a member of the
Raleigh police force. Cigars, cigar
ettes, tobaccos and money, as much
some nights as $40 have- been stolen.
It is possible that Reid will be tried for
burglary as well as larceny, as the
place robbed has been also used as a
While the weather conditions have
greatly improved in Raleigh, there is
today much activity in and about the
city. Gangs of. laborers and linemen
are at work, teams are moving loads
of cross arms and supplies about the
place. No less than 75 men were
moved out this morning by the railroad
companies and the telegraph people to
re-establish their lines and get them in
to actual working condition. , The tele
phone service in Raleigh is not yet
restored, Today has been an alterna

Unless Hands Were Tied Wasted

' Over a Year Grew Worse Under

WOULD HAVE DIED
BUT FOR CUTICURA.
My little son, when about' a year
and a half old, began to have sores
oomo out on his face. I hod a phy
sician treat rum,
:. but the sores grew
worse. Then they
began to come on
his arms, then on
other parts of his
Douy, ana men one
came on his chest,
worse than the
others. Then I call
ed another Dhvsi-
cian. Still he grew worse At the end
of about a year and a half of suffering
he grew so bad I had to tie his hands
in cloths at night to keep him from
scratching the sores and tearing the flesh.
"He got to be a mere skeleton, and
was hardly able to walk. , My Aunt
advised me to try Cuticura Soap and
. Ointment. So great was her faith in
it that she gave me a small piece of
Soap to try and a little of the Oint
ment. I took it home without any
faith, but to please her I tried it, and
it seemed to dry up the sores a little.
"I sent to the drug store and got a
cake of the Soap and a box of the
Ointment and followed the directions,
, and at the end of about two months
the sores were all well. He has
never had any sores of any kind since.
"He is now strong and healthy,
and I can sincerely gay that only for
your most wonderful remedies my
Srecious child would have died from
lose tesrible sores. ; I used only one
cake of Soap and about three boxes
of Ointment. - (signed) Mrs. Eg

FAMILY JAR AT CLARKS
No Gore Shod But Evidence! of Bad
. Reports of a bad affair at Clarks were
made here yesterday. There . was no
injury inflicted but it is said that a de
liberate attempt to shoot was made.
So far as known however; there have
been no arrests. William Arthur, who
lives at a distance,' came to Clark to
visit his mother, who is a widow. He
found his b, other Edward, in the house
sick and helpless, and as he thought,
without the necessary cdro to give him
a chance to recover. He upbraided the
woman for allowing her son to bo in
such a neglected condition and remark
ed that had a certain elderly man, who
was said to be paying the woman, beon
sick he would have had the best atten
The man in question happened to hear
the criticism and he cam forward and
had some words with the . young man.
Mr. Arthur offered him excellent op
portunities to settle their difficulties in
a fight but the older man did not accept
the proposition, but on the contrary
picked up an ax and sought to make an
assault with that but had no chance to
use it; he then went into another room
and got a gun, threatening to shoot
young Arthur if he remained on the
premises and it is said, to have attempt
ed to shoot him but was prevented.
The young man was warned not to
come to that house again on penalty of
death. Young Arthur ' left without
