J E . Latham's Weekly Cotton Letter.
Special to Journal:
New York, Nov. 3 The decline has
been half a cent a pound since my laBt
letter, and is over $7.00 per bale down
form the top... Cotton is coming into
sight in unequalled volume, and crop
estimates are being increased. There
is considerable difference of opinion
about the size of the crop, and about
the damage done by frosts, and storms
There is nothing unusual at this season
of the year, but as a rule the final count
greatly exceeds popular estimates. The
condition of trado is wonderfully good
and promises to continue good for at
least six months. Tho question nat
urally comes up, has not tho decline al
ready gone far enough? If the cotton
coming in was of good grade, I would
unhesitatingly advise buying for a good
upturn, but if the cotton is of such poor
quality as the talk indicates, spinners
will not buy willingly and as to laying
in reserves, they will not do so of this
quality in large volumes. Therefore
the lower grades must be taken care of
either by farmers holding back, or by
the option markets of the world. Spec
ulators are not inclined to buy cotton
just yet, but the farmers seem willing
to sell on all good advances. . After
such a big decline the market ouht to
be pretty near bottom for the time be
ing, and a good rally would seem to be
entirely n order in the near future.

Raleigh Nov. 3 State Chairman Sim
mons returned today from Morehead
City and Bays everything is all right in

majority in the state this year will prob
ably run very closely with -that two
years ago, this lrrgely depending upon
the turnout of the Democrats since if
they turn out in large numbers the ma
jority will be bigger. ."'
The band of the Third Regiment last
night went to SmithfieW where it gave
a concert and today fc- furnishes the

Adjustant General Robertson says
that there are remarkable few appli
cations now: for discharges from the
National Guard. It -ia thought to be
probable that the Second Regiment will
next year participate in the maneuvers.
The increase in the number of char
ters granted to corporations this year
is so great as to be remarkable.;' Dur
ing the year ended December 1st 1905
there were 696 charters granted, while
during the 11 months of the present
fiscal year the number is 890.

The number of students at the Bap

improvements have been made and the
largest organ in the State has been in
stalled. The total value of the prop
erty is now stated by President Vann
to be $200,000.
It ib learned in conversation with
officials here that there is strong possi
bility of the President commuting to
life imprisonment the death sentence of
the two negrj mutineers now in jail at
Wilmington. The district attorney,
Harry- Skinner, prosecuted them with
great vigor, but now popular sentiment
at Wilmington is very greatly in favor
of a lesser sentence than death. These
prisoners have conducted themselves
admirably during their long imprison
ment. ' It is said that Colonel Skinner
will soon go to Washington and that he
will probably assent to commutation
which has been so urged by the minis
ters at Wilmington and others.
! State Veterinarian Tait Butler was
speaking to your correspondent about
the scarcity of labor in this State and
he says that much of 'it is due to the
way things are managed, the cost of
labor aaving machinery and of the num
ber of one horse farms. He thinks the
latter are very unprofitable and are the
principal cause of the labor scarcity,
saying that instead of three men, each
working one horse, one man ought to
work two and thus leave the other man
disengaged to do other work. He says
that the following out of this plan
would be found that the available labor
would be immensely increased and he
declares that . North Carolina would
really have more labor than many other

At a meeting of the Board of Educa
tion for Guilford county this morning,
the resignation of its chairman, Prof.
J. Allen Holt was tendered to take ef
fect today. In his letter of resigna
tion, after expressing his reluctance at
resigning, rrot. Holt stated that he

twenty years. That when he became a

the amount now expended for the coun

$50,000, and that since the era of dem
