Crops About Bellair
. :'.,',;, ,v .I... Oct 22.
This is the eighth day of consecutive
rainain our section, cotton picking and
general crop housing suspended. The
housing of the crop however, is quite
a brief item about here if we have a
few nice days. One farmer haa just
housed the corn on 11 acres, which has
usually yielded 60 barrels, this year the
total is a little less than 80 barrels. We
don't know whether this is a general
average or not hope not however, for
when a few are short and some have a
surplus, it iaessy to meet thedefi-
ciency.;.': -"'; v1--.- '";-;! -
The potato crop seems- quite short,
and in some places very few peas.
Few farmers however have fair crops
of peas, many were late and killed by
the early frost before maturing. '
Sickness in our vicinity has abated
some, but this warm, wet weather is
favorable for germinating disease, as
well as oata. Some of us sowed oats
hat week and before we could get the
ground properly harrowed, the oats
were coming up. .

county took the prize for county exhib
its. Moat of the exhibit was the work
of one man, William Robbins of Ral
eigh. It was pronounced by judges the
best exhibit ever made by any county
in North Carolina.
Among the visitors to Democratic
headquarters today was Capt, J, P. Al
lison, of Concord. Speaking of the de
velopment of his county, he id that
while it had hot as many cotton mills
as Gastgn, nor was building as many
new ones, yet he believed the number
of spindles in the mills which are being
built will be as large as that in Gaston,
that is somewhere about 100,000, two of
the new mills is to have 50,000 of the
number. Speaking of the labor ques
tion in his section, .Capt Allison said
that the scarcity and unreliability of
labor was great and that this is the case
all over the State without an excep
tion, so far as he knows.
No work in the cotton fields has been
possible all this week. Secretary T. B.
Parker of the North Carolina Cotton
Growers Association said that com
plaints were coming in about the qual
ity of cotton. . Several cotton mill
presidents tell me that it is going to be
hard to get the high quality of cotton
which they desire. - He fears that the
mill men are making a great mistake
bv lettintr the cotton which has been
picked leave the State in large quanti
ties, as he understands sharp buyers
are picking it up for export One mill
president tells me that he finds even
now that he cannot get the grade he
needs, except at a premium. Secre
tary Parker says that most of the mill
men are srouur along from hand to
mouth, waiting for prices to get lower.
He says they will wait in vain.

It ia the general comment that the
fair this year was the cleanest ever

decent shows, nothing being done

been horrible as to the shows. ; The
conduct of the fair shows what can be

It is said by some of the farmers
that the carnage done by the rain which
began last Monday and which yet con
tinues, will nearly equal that by the

While on the subject of republican
ideas professions and practices of civic
virtue, as compared with democratic,
it may not be amiss to mention a flag
rant derilection. There are in this city
three democratic and two republican
political papers. The Patriot, tht Rec
ord, the Telegram, the Tar Heel and
the Industrial News. On the tax lists,
democratic papers have given in their
property for taxation. Neither one of
the republican papers, The Tar Heel
or the Industrial News, although they
boast of their splendid plants, have lis
ted a dollar, and will necessarily have
to be made to pay delinquents.
A gentleman this morning said he rec
koned the Industrial News felt like it
