Quite a number ot farmers were in the city yesterday, representing al most every section of the county. The formulated opinion from their report is that while small cropsaro growing rapidly, in some parts of the coun ty, notably across the river, rain is badly needed. The northern part of the county has hod fine seasons. Rains are badly.needed now. to insurg a good yield. Melon Rates Explained. Pelham, Ga., June 11th, 1889. News and Advertize)-: In your issue of 8th, I noticed an article on melon rates which I think was written under a misapprehension of the basis on which rates were made from pro ratiug points last season. In the conference between the Melon Growers Association and the Southern Railway and Steam Ship Association last September, the fact was developed that while the rate north of the Ohio River was on a basis of 10 mills per ton a mile, and the rate from South ern pro rating points to the Ohio River proper was 10 mills, the southern roads had accepted 8 mills on business destined beyond the Ohio River. The southern roads therefore were charging last season only 8 mills on through business ; while they wero charging 10 mills to the Ohio River points; while this season there is a uniform charge of 8 mills; and the reduction of 20 per cent., allowed by them, of course, only cflects rates t» the river proper. The only reduction on shipments beyond the river is that made by the Georgia Railroad commission on local rates charged by the initial road. For some reason, I do not understand, the Southern Railroad and Steam Ship Association have ndvanccd rates from Albany to points west of the Missis sippi river. As the matter now stands the south ern roads arc getting only 8 mills per ton a mile, and the western roads, which have none of the extraordinary expenses of au initial line, get 10 mills per ton a mile. I think this is an injustice and a discrimination against southern lines, and against watermelou growers, which ought to be corrected before the next crop is planted. If shippers, when their business is solicted by lines north of the river, will insist on their co operation in this matter, it will greatly facilitate the adjustment of this wrong and injustice.

At 7 o’clock this morning Gen. Hastings took charge and soldiers were placed on guard duty at all the commissary stations and morgues. A slight rain fell all tho morning, and the city presented a most dismal ap pearance. Everything was turmoil and confusion ami littlo or no work was done. For the first time since work began the men seemed fagged out and were not in a hurry to get to work. But few bodies were recovered this morning, owing to the chaotic condition of affairs pending a transfer of authority and to the bad weather. Four bodies were taken to the First ward morgue, none of which were identified, and but one to the Fourth ward morgue. At the Kernville and F'irst Presbyterian church morgues, nothing was done. Three bodies were observed in the ruin near where the rink lies a wreck, hut there was no effort made to get them out. The laborers almost unanimously refuse to handle bodies when discovered, and the men at the morgues arc obliged to go after them. To this there is much objection. .

Forty five thousand dollars was collected during the year, nine teen churches orgauized, thirty-six church houses built, and 520members received through mission work. The most interesting discussion of the day was on the proliibition ques tion. The action of tho meeting yes terday on this question did not give satisfaction, aud the standing commit tee introduced, through J. G. Morris, of Illinois, the following: Whereas, Iu consideration of query No. 2 front Western Maryland, there unfortunately obtained a mis understanding among our brethren, producing a very unsatisfactory result, tty creating a wrong impression as to our position 011 the subject of temper- perance; therefore Hetolvcd, That this annual meeting recommend that all our brethren cor dially maintain our position against the use or tolerance of intoxicants, whether to manufacturs, to sell or use as a beverage, and to the extent of our influence contribute our part to secure practical prohibition, but that we advise against taking part in the public agitation of the subject. The resolution, after discussion, was unanimously adopted. The question of the uso of tobacco was again brought up and it was again decided that its use was against the teaching of the scripture. It was decided to bo improper for the brethren to join the Farmer’s Alli ance, carpenter’s association, etc. Alter a vigorous protest, it was de clared that the members should not work in tobacco factories or raise to bacco, and it was further decided that it was wrong to use tobacco except for medicinal purposes.
