Cotton Farmers Meeting
Raleigh, N. C, Feb. 14, 1906. ;
, Craven county is not one of the big
cotton counties, however her crop of
about ten thousand bales yearly when
sold at about 10 to 12 cents per pound
floats a large sum of money into the
business channels and gives to her
farmers the means of providing com
forts for home and family not heard of
when the price is five to seven cents
per pound. f ,
The Southern Cotton Association this
season sold the Craven county cotton
for about two hundred thousand dollar
. more than the 1904 crop sold for.
The Association will sell your 1906
crop for a good price if you will stand
by it to a man and help it in the fight
we have with Wall Street
' You must reduce your acreage for
1906 25 per ccent from that of 1904.
You must not sell your 1906 crop at any
price for future delivery. You must
contribute to the expense fund which i
is necessary to conduct the work of the
i nope to meet every tenant and
every farmer of Craven county at the
court house on Tuesday February 20th.

Greensboro, Feb. 15. Yesterday was
j another day ofyargument and oratory
m the Federal court, there being three
notable speeches to the jury in the
Samuel case. "-Judge W. P. Bynum
made two hours speech In the mom;
court, the jury and a large audience
present to hear him. He began by
referring to conditions in Wilkes coun
ty and declared that Samuel had pur.-
ned them, as there had been but one
still cut since he resigned; Explaining
the state of affairs he said that Wilkes
people had for generations .been bred
to feel that they had the right to turn
their corn into whiskey, their fruit into
brandy, and when the Watts law even
denied them the right of government
stills they simply moved back into the
woods and with 95 per cent of the pop
ulation, determined to resist the law,
and the domaant party there declar
ing it a hideous infamy it created an
atmosphere of opposition to officers
that was not surprising. So great wi

month trying to make a case against
this one brave courageous officer.
In his powerful argument at the morn
ing session, Ex Judge W. P. Bynum
whose celebrated "greed; grab and
graft" proclamation issued, at the time
of the holding of the Republican State
convention here, is remembered took
occasion to throw a few more hot shot
at his republican brethren. He-j began
this fusilade at the beginning of his
speech, after the following manner:
The whole prosecution of my client
Samuel is the outc me of an infernal
republican political row.' in Wilkes
county, something which Been s to act
uate many republicans in this State,
vho in their infernal lurt for office
turn demons in - their efforts to damn
and blacken, better men's characters.
Here in Wilkes county the evidence
shows, In March 1904 the hottest kind
of political contest in every township
in the primaries over the selection of
Linney or Blackburn men for the Con
gressional ' ' nomination. Blackburn
triumphed in the convention and in the
election Samuel was a strong and hon
est supporter of Blackburn. Immediate
ly following that nominating conven
tion, was began an unparalleled system
of vituperation and espionage, which
never stopped even after reaching the
portals of this court. . Mixed up with
this row was the fight by the ex-ievanue
officers out, against those who like
Samuel were in. Following the exam
ple of higher officials of their party,
these outs depended on break intr back
jnt0 0fHce by slander and disgrace to
those who were in. So it has been in
this Stato, so it is today.- Look at it
Here is United States District Attor

Your correspondent talked with C. C.
Moore, president of theNorth Carolina '
division of the Southern Cotton Ass(
ciation as to the frequent queries he is
called upon to answer concerning the
source ' of the present cotton sales.
President Moore said he had been look
ing closely and carefully into the mat
ter and from all available sources he
found out that the only sales were
made by those who ha j bought cotton
when the prices were lower, who had
held on to the staple by warehousing or
mortgaging the same and were even
now able to sell at a profit of something
in . the neighborhood of ten or eleven
dollars a bale, This officer of the
