The c!ou of the cotton year yesterday
show* that Savannah t* still holding Ms
own in the cotton world. While the re
ceipt* are Ires last year, thla la due ,to
(he fact that last year's crop w.is 11,189,-
aft ho tea. as compared with a crop for
the reason Just dosed, variously estltmt
rd at front 9,100.000 to 9.300.000 bales. Some
estimate It aa high as 10,000.00).
The gross receipts for the season were
l.iM.tM bales, against 1.101,t.M a year ago,
and the net. 1.0*3.307, against 1.090.610 last
year. While the per cent, of Increase
. annul be estimated until the size of the
crop is known. U la believed It wll! be
large, and wiil compare favorably with
tbs increase at any other cotton receiving
port, fleets ports lost heavily In their
receipt*- during the reason.
Circumstances have been such as to
push Hnvannuh forward, though this
would not have beet) possible but for the
indefatigable efforts of shipping men. and
those interested In the cotton trade. Dur
ing the iwst season cotton, which pre
viously went through other ports, woe
brought through Savannah. by reason of
the superior facilities offered here In
h.nsNuig and shipping cotton.

A meeting of Ihe officers whom he h

yesterday afternoon nt B:3# o'clock at Col.

discussing the matches and making ar
rangements that will guide the range offi

Col. Cann mad.- his assignment* to ihe
several ranges. Copt. W. W. William

The Bo Soto match, that for teams 3f

mllltln. l all the ranges, will be the
first shot. At the range Monday morning
the captain* of the teams, of which there
will he more than thirty, possibly thlrts’-
seven or thirty-eight, will draw for ihe
order In which they will shoot, and for
the target* at which they will fire. I;
I* expected that the -lay will probably
be taken up with Ihl* match, in which the
prire. to Jhe team with Ihe highest score,
will be Ihe De Soto trophy.

U liat a Voter Think* of Each of the
To the Editor of the Morning News: A*
nn Interested reader of your editorial*, t
trust you will not take amiss my sending
for publication u few remarks regarding
the two men who are now before the
public, seeking the highest gift In the
hands of Ihelr countrymen.
Mr. Byran’a clean and honest private
life entitles him to the respect of all
men. He ha* demonstrated the fact lho*
he Is a man of considerable nnd varied
ability, hut lacking lhai even balance
which goe* to the making of a great
man. He ha* great persistence, l* a thor
ough radical, and. above all, he want*
office, and for the hurt four year* he
ha* been chasing over She whole country
seeking It. Hi* first campaign was made
on the two great thcorlen—a revolution
of ihe financial rendition* of Ihe coun
try, and the antagonism of Ihe classes—
and he lost. In hi* second campaign, from
prudential motives, he ha* little to say
on TT.ver, being willing to bide hi* time,
but to make up for this silence, he is
building up a hideous bugaboo of Impe
rialism. with which lo frighten the peo
ple Into Ihe belief that a great many
dreadful things are going to happen, Hnd
he alone can nave them. 1 think Mr.
Bryan can save all the anxiety he feels.
The things he predicts ore not going lo
happen, at any rate, nol now. I think
Mr. Secretary Gage is very unwise (as
any one else would 1*1) In risking a pre
diction a* to what Mr. Bryan will or will
not do. should he have the power.
Mr. McKinley t a man of equal pur
ity of life, and so far deserve* our sin
cere respect. He Is kindly disposed and
of good impulses, and is by no means
lacking political shrewdness, but he Is
essentially a weak man. and is lon much
guided by a power behind the throne. In
Justice, however. It hnot.ld be rukl hi* ad
ministration has been filled with an un
usual number of grave difficulties, and
on the whole, the dignity and greatness
of the country ha* In no way suffered;
but alongside of this there hu* been
weakness, vacillation and uncertainty,
which has cost the country thousand*
of live* and millions of money. The great
est fault of all. and the one to which all
our subsequent trouble may lie directly
traced, was the foolish appointment of
the different peace commission* Just af
ter the Spanish war. Mr. McKinley
wanted us to |Ke before the work! In
a character which In strict honesty Is
not our due, and which Ihe Spunlads. of
all people, were least able to understand.
Instead of at once slating plainly our ab
solute nnd final <erm* of peace, w lost
months of lime In delays, nnd undignified
wrangling; We paid 139,000.0n0 for Ihe Phil
ippines; we gave Agulnaldo time to pre
pare for war. nnd ever since, we have
been rating the fruit* of Mr. M'-Klnley‘s
high-flown Idea* of benevolence.
Such, Mr. Editor. In my opinion. Is a
fair statement of facts, and eertalnly
wllhout malice; but It strikes me that
Ihe choice of Ihe voters Is between Il.e
devil and the deep, deep sen! I cannot
see that any of ihe real principles of the
Democratic party are Involved. With Mr.
Bryan. It I* office, first, last snd sll the
Hen*—nnd the unknown. With Mr Mc-
Kinley. It Is all the known evils of re
publicanism. pure and simple.
