There is great commotion in Boston,
Maes.,—the bean crop is a failure,
Boston without beaus! The situation
is very bad.
Harrison hnsn’t appointed one of
his relatives to office for two or three
days. What’s the matter? They are
not quite all provided for yet.
One by one the boodlers are being
rewarded by Hairison. The latest
instance is the appointment of Mr.
John F. Plummer us a Union Pacific
Railway director. Mr. Plummer
plumped down about 8100,000 for the
campaign fund during the late elec
tion for president. Plummer gets a
The Interstate Law.
One very common violation of the
interstate commerce law is seen every
day, and is the section reading as fol
lows: “Section 6 (amended and
passed February, 1889.) That every
common carrier subject to the provi
sion of this act shall print and keep
open to public inspection schedules
showing the rates and fares, and
charges for the transportation of pas
sengers and property which any such
common carrier has established, and
which arc in force at the time upon
it* route. The schedules printed as
aforesaid by any such commou car
rier shall plainly state the places upon
its railroad between which property
and passengers will be carried, and
shall contain the classification of
freights in force, and shall also state
separately the terminal charges nnd
any rules or regulations which in any
wise ojiange or affect or determine
any part or the aggregate of such
aforesaid rates, fares and charges.
Such schedule shall be plainly printed
in large type, and copies for the use
of the public shall be posted in two
public and conspicuous places in every
depot, station or office of such car
riers where passengers or freight, res
pectively, are received/or transporta
tion, in such form that they shall be
accessible to the public', and can be
conveniently iifBpocted.” The viola
tion of the above mentioned section,
or the failure to comply with its
requirements, is set down as a con
tempt, and is punishable by law. It
is, therefore, a law that every ticket
office shall have two copies of sched
ules posted outside where the public
can inspect them.—Constitution.
* The programme for the road con
gress, which will convene in the cham
ber j>f commerce iu Atlanta on May
22, has been arranged. Addresses of
welcome will be delivered by Gov.
Gordon, Mayor Glenn and J. G.
Oglesby, on the part of the state, the
city, and the local‘merchants, and
responses will be made bv President
Livingston in behalf of the farmers,
and Col. J. W. Robinson, of Clarkes-
▼ille, in behalf of the manufacturers
of Georgia. A sermon will be preach
ed by Rev. (Gen.) C. A. Evans, of
Augusta, and addresses on various
■objects will be made, Hoke Smith,
John T. Graves, Prof. Willett, Attor
ney General Cliflord Anderson and
Prof. Sanford being omoDg the
speakers. Reduced rates will be
allowed to delegates, who will pay full
fhre going and one-third fore return
ing. The hotels of Atlanta have re
duced their rates for the occasion, to
accommodate the delegates. The
prospects are that tho attendance will
be large, and that some practical
rendu will follgw.
There's a big row, though they
have jiieen a long time starting it,
over the inhuman treatment of the
inmates of the insane asylum iu Cook
county, Ill. One of the witnesses tes
tified us follows:
Mrs. Helen Shedd, former presi
dent of the Women’s Protective As
sociation, took the stand. She said
she had visited the asylum on many
different occasions, and had remained
over night there. She said: “I never
slept there and never weut through
the wards without making me sick.
I went there as a well person, but in
variably came away siek. One visit
there we discovered about fifty pa
tients suflering from scurvy. Look
ing further we discovered that the
inmates were being fed on boiled pigs’
heads. That was all they had for a
year, I believe. No care was taken
even in preparing the outrageous food
that was turuished.
“Once a week they had potatoes—
that was on Sundays—and when the
patients came to the table a scene
which beggars description always oc
curred. The stronger patients got
the potatoes nnd the weaker went
without. This was during the time
when Harry Varnell was warden.
This condition of things was frequent
ly brought to the attention of the

Liability of Stockholders.
Washington, May 13. •>- In the
United States supreme court to-day
Chief Justice Fuller delivered the opin
ion of the court in the case ol William
J. Hawkins, plaintiff in error, vs. John
Glenn, trustee of the National Express
and Transportation Company. This
company, in 1866, made an assign
ment, leaving little available assets for
the creditors except unpaid subscrip
tions made by stockholders. An as
sessment of 30 per cent was levied
against the stockholders for the benefit
of the creditors. Mr. Glenn, as Trus
tee, brought a large number of suits
against persons in all parts of the
Union to compel the payment of the
assessments. The Hawkins case was
decided in favor of Mr. Glenn, the
irustee. in the United Slates circuit
court, for the eastern district of North
Carolina. This court affirms that
decision, holding that the original
stockholders are liable lor the amount
of. their subscriptions, regardless of
whether or noi thyy have transferred
their holdings. ' I
The Race Problem in the South.
CriAiiLEi ton, May 16.-The Rev. J.
M. Pollard, the colored rector of St.
Mark’s Colored Episcopnl church, and
who is better known as “the bone of
contention,” from the fact, that it was
on the question of his admission into
the diocesan convention that the great
Episcopalian seccsssiou took place in
1887, Iras issued an address on the
subject of the race problem, which
will attract considerable attention.
Mr. Pollard says:
"Our race is now in possession of
upward of 8100,000,000, but tho
musses have made but little progress.
Divide the money in your possession
by the whole number of individuals,
aud you shall have about 812 to every
individual. Many of you are living
in rented houses. This you ought to
remedy as soon as possible by purchas
ing a place of your own. It is abso
lutely essential that a larger number
should become Bmall farmers in order
to reach a position of independence.
The money required to purchase a
house and lot in tho city is sufficient
to pay for five or ten acres of land, to
build a small house for the use of the
family, and also to.stock the farm.”
To the friends of the colored race
“You wish to see them elevated.
Now, take hold of the work iu the
right way and much good may come
out of it. Philanthropic rich men, in
addition to the establishment of
schools aud the building of churches,
could use their money, aud with a
profit to themselves, by purchasing
large tracts of land nnd selling them
off in small farms of five or ton acres
each, to heads of families or responsi
ble young men, with from five to ten
years to pay for the same. This is
already done to some extent by the
whites of the South, but for the most
part they own nothing but the laud,
and need the price thereof to meet
their immediate demands, and hence
cannot wait long enough to give poor
men a chauce to settle themselves on
a solid foundation.”
When a United States -supreme
court, made up ol five republicans and
only three democrats, decides that the
depredations of a Confederate raid
were acts “of legitimate warfare,” and
not of rebellion, it is time for Joel Beu
son Foraker, of Ohio, to solemnly in
quire if he has lived and howled in

COVERING OF THE BALES.
Tho Jute Men Fall to Satisfy the
Planters as to Prices:
Birmingham, Ala., May 13.—The
national convention of the Alliance
and Wheel to consider the bagging
question continued in secret session
to-day. A proposition wns made by
representatives of the jute bagging
manufacturers present as follows: To
sell for present delivery jute bagging
at these prices, \\ pound bagging at
8f cents per yard, 1J pound bagging
at 8J, 2 pound bagging at 9§, 2J
pound bagging at 10$ or at less than
0 cents per pound ; also that if far mors
were not prepared to take and pay for
bagging now they would hold bag
ging for them till it was needed, add
ing one-eighth of a cent per yard for
each month. The jute bagging men
'claim that at the price asked for bag
ging made of cotton, 121 cents for
cloth weighing three-fourth of a pound,
or 16j cents per pound, that jute bag
ging at present prices, five cents per
pound, is less than one-third the price
of bagging made of cotton, and its use
will save the planter at least 81 per
bale*. This estimate of the amount
saved per bale, is based on the suppo
sition that the cotton exchanges will
not reduce the existing tare deduction
for jute bagging. The convention
declined this proposition.
TEXT OF THE RESOLUTION.
Following is the full text of the
resolution reported by the committee
aud adopted -on this subject:
Resolved, That we, from all the
lights before us, recommend to this
body' permanent use of cotton bagging
as a covering for cotton. We further
recommend the appointment of a com
mittee of three, their actual expenses
to be paid proportionately by the var
ious state alliances, wheels and unions,
whose duty shall bo to secure from
purchasers aud manufacturers of cot
ton covered iu cotton bagging, an al
lowance of at least eight pounds on
each bale at the market price of cotton
when sold. We still further recom
mend that in the event of any cotton
buyers refusing to grant the allowance
above asked for, then we advise the
members ol the alliances, wheels and
unions not to sell till such concessions
It was developed, that there was
some opposition to; the above resolu
tion, but it went through with prac
WHAT THE DELEGATES CLAIM.
TJie delegates contend there is no
such eaviug iu the use of jute bagging
as the manufacturers allege,- and they
further have no guarantee that the
price will not be put up again at will
in future years. The price offered by
the cotton bagging manufacturers is
12i cents per yard, weighing three-
quarters of a pound. The alliance
has strong hopes of getting an allow
ance of tare for cotton bagging, which
is sought. Letters arc on hand from
New York aud Liverpool exchanges.
Southern cotton manuiacturers
have agreed to allow them 10 cents
per 100 pounds on cotton wrapped iu
A Big Count of Cash.
