Mr. Chauiu-y M. Depew made a
speech at the republican State con
vention the other day in New York,
laudatory of Mr. Harrison s adminis
tration. The best thing he could say
about it, was to refer to the success,
of the new cruiser Baltimore, which
was lauuced a few days ago, and
which has developed a speed which
makes her perhaps the fastest war ves
sel afloat. Mr. Depew forgot to tell
his audience that the Baltimore was
designed, contracted for and built by
Mr. Whitney, the democratic secre

The selection of a national flower is

The polls were open last Tuesday and
Wednesday, when the crowds were
unusually large. The most prominent
candidates were the golden rod, the
sunflower, the rose, the daisy, the vio
let, the lily, the pansy, the tube rose
and the morning glory. Each of these
had not only warm supporters, but a
campaign committee and challengers
at the polls. Every effort was made
to prevent repeating, bribery and oth
er forms of corruption. On counting
the votes golden rod was in the lead,
having received 6347 votes. The
sunflower came next with 4,743’ an d

Atlanta, Ga., Sept. GO.—The na
tional committee of the Farmers' Al
liance met here to-day and adopted
WilKKKA.s, The association o|
American cotton exchanges met in
New I Means on Sept. 11, and in con
junction wit.ii various commissioners
of agriculture uml representatives of
the fanning interests, ilid reeeoimm-nd
that cotton lie sold by net weight as a
solution of the tare question.
Whkk'nAs, Information now receiv
ed shows that said action has not re
ceived the approval of a sullieient
number of cotton exchanges to ena
ble the New Orleans Cotton Ex
change to carry it out, commencing
on the time agreed upon, to wit, Get.
WniutLAs, The action taken by
the New Orleans Cotton Exchange in
favor of assisting the farmers to get
paid for eight pounds more cotton
than each cotton-wrapped hale eon-
tains than jute covering is highly
appreciated by said exchange. To
contend for the cause in spite of the
fact that many leading exchanges had
deserted it, is epeeially commendable
and will he co operated in by the in
terests we represent; and
WlimtLAK, The justice and equity
of the farmers' claim on the tare ques
tion is based on the one fact which
sta-uls boldly and undisputed and mi-
disputable—that every cotton wrap
ped hale actually contains eight
pounds more of lint cotton than it
would if covered with jute—tlieretore
it is hereby
A’csc/ecd, That the action by the
Shreveport cotton exchange be adopt
ed in the present emergency, and every
farmer is hereby instructed, when ol-
fering lor sale cotton wrapped in cot
ton bagging, to demand payment for
eight pounds more of cotton than the
actual grosi-weight of such bale.
AVVivd, That this action is inten
ded to supersede and take the place of
all previous action and instructions in
regard to the tare question. In no
case shall a bale of cotton be sold
subject to a dock of sixteen pounds
for cotton bagging or twenty-four
pounds for jute bagging, as agreed
upon in New Orleans, unless the cot
ton be sold at one-half cent per pound
in advance of the current price at the
lime and place. Further instructions
wi'l be given the order by the national
cotton committee on Oct. 23, through
the president of each Alliance wheel,
or union, at their county seats, where
president or secretaty of each primary
Alliance wheel or union will meet them
to receive the same.

The Twins Still Live.
JoNttsiioito, Ga., September -!*.— '
The News gives this interesting story: j
In the year 1871 we had a county |
fair for Clayton county, connected
with which was a baby .-how with a
prize of five dollars in gold fur the
finest baby. There were exhibited
on that occasion a pair of red headed
twin boy babies about one year old.
They were the finest babies 011 exhi
bition, ami weie so much alike the
judges got them mixed, and in order
to get out of their difficulty had to di
supply the funds for these schools, and
that the children of those once held m
servitude in the south are being edu
cated by the sons of their former mas
On this same subject of cduc tion
in die south, we reprint a communica
tion from a Boston newspaper by a
southern man :
To the Editor of the Advertiser: Re-
fering to a fugitive paragraph quoted
in your columns to the effect that Geo.
W. Cable says : ‘ The south is wast- j
ing millions every year in refusing to
educate its colored people,” I would
say that this statement is untrue. I
| have the honor to be one of the school
j commissioners ot this city, and so far
as refusing to educate the colored citi
zens, I would say that lie enjoys the
same educational priveligcs that '.he
white man does. Our school buildings
are alike, elegant brick structures.
The schools have the same superin

The money has been thus loaned
