The Betterments Question.
This question will not down, hike
lianquo’s ghost, it is continually rising
up. We have an able legislature—this
is conceded. The members, no doubt,
only wish to do what is right in the
premises. But how to get at it is the
question. From our standpoint, as
seen at this distance, both sides are
wrong; lie; slate, at least it is sordaim-
rd by some, should not pay a cent;
while, on the other hand, the lessees
claim more than is actually due them.
Something is undoubtedly due the les
sees; let the state allow that something,
whatever it may be. There ought to
be, there must be, a solution of the
matter, No one wants to sec the
issue carried into the courts.
Will it be Settled ?
One of the most important ques
tions before the legislature is that
of betterments—the claims of the
lessees of the W. & A, R. 1!., fin-
certain improvements made by them
during their twenty years lease. The
house and Senate have passed the’
following, looking to an adjustment of
the vexed question :

President Livingston Explains.
A short time ago president Ivey, of
the County Alliance, appreciating the
importance of the farmers of this
county being informed as to the cflects
of the proposed new rule for weighing
cotton, addressed a letter to president
Livingston, of the State Alliance, ask
ing his views on the question. Under
date of the 21st, Mr. Livingston re
plies as follows:
Dear Uho.:—Yours of 1 5 th to baud. All
cotton is now priced with u deduction of C
per cent, for tare. A bale weighing 100
pounds, has just 0 per cent, tare (21 pounds)
a bale weighing 500 pounds at 0 per cent.,
therefore, sustains an actual loss ol d pound;
This we changed from 0 per cent, to 2
pounds per bale on all jute covered cottui
A bale of cotton covered cotton, actual tar
is 10 pounds, therefore a loss under tli
present tare, of 11 pounds. This we fixed at
actual tare, 10 pounds, ins trail of 0 per <
Cotton, therefore, on the last day of Kept.,
being worth 10 cents, on the 1st day of Oct
vitbout any other cause, will be priced u
so as to cover these amounts of difference, 1
for cotton bagging and 0 for jute. In other
words, cotton covered in cotton will be
higher in price, to the value of 8 pound
over jute, and thus the actual tare instead
of a fraudulent tare nr, now.
