Sequel to Substantial Ad
vances During the Week.
STOCKS YIELD TO SELLING
Strong Undertone Evident Despite
INDUSTRIALS GENERALLY OFF
Qill Issues Led the Strong Leaders,
While Fractional Recessions
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW TOftK. September lR.-From
opening Irregularly the stock market this
morning progressed to an average decline
of fractional proportions In the second
hour. A rather extensive profit-taking
movement was the chief factor in making
prices. The dealings were governed almost
wholly by considerations common to
those who make It more or less of a business
to trade In stocks. Prices have had
a substantial advance this week, and
realization sales were more or less in
order as the end of the week drew near.
The business of the week has been too
exclusively In the high-priced Issues for
guy considerable participation by others
than habitual traders, and their operations
are not usually represented by commitments
of any marked duration that
the high-priced stocks were again the
leading features of the market.

tronir. as wan Canadian Pacific. Reading
was very active, hut through the
greater part of the session was dealt in
without much change in price. St. Paul
advanced sharply at the opening, but subsequently
showed the effects of profit taking.
New York Central declined substantially
and Pennsylvania receded fractionally.
Substantial fractional losses were
scored In the Union Pacific issues, but
Southern Pacific was firm.
Strong and Active Features.
Among the lower priced railroad stocks
Erie 1st preferred and Southern railway
were strong and active features. The Industrial
list was generally off. United
States Steel preferred was aggressivelystrong,
but the common stock yielded to
rather heavy selling. As a whole the market
displayed a strong undertone.
Foreign exchange for the week showed
a loss of about one-half cent In the
pound sterling. Bank clearings throughout
the country increased more than 20
per cent as compared with the corresponding
week last year.
The trade reviews spoke of the strong
tone In business, and reported volumes
approaching the records of 1007. The
Canadian Pacific this morning published
earnings showing an Increase In gross of
$4u5,<nx> for the second week In September,
and an increase of more than $2,500,000
from July 1 to September 14.
NEW YORJC, September 18.?The cotton
*tMriv at a decline of 1
point In October, but generally 1 to 3
points higher, and soon sold up to a net
advance of 8atf) points on covering and
bull support. Bullish Liverpool cables,
reports of a big spot business In the
south late yesterday, bullish reviews of
the dry goods situation and reports from
Liverpool that Southern offerings were
dearer and that hedge selling was insufficient
to supply demands, were the bullish
factors. Apprehensions that the gulf
storm might reach the belt over Sunday
and cause damage to open cotton also
had its influence, and trading was moderately
active in spite of week-end considerations.

at 11:1*5 O'clock last night when he fell
through a trapdoor on the second floor of
Armory Hall to the hard concrete floor below,

DawsOn was picked up In an unconscious
condition and taken to the rear of the
hall, where he was made as comfortable
as possible. Later he was taken to his

that no bones were broken, although
he sustained bad bruises on his
hip, elbow and left side. His condition
was reported to be considerably improved
Mr. Dawson was engpged In assisting
at the autumn festival which is being
held at the hall by the Rt? Men, and
while upstairs attending to some matters
he failed to notice the trapdoor and came
tumbling down with a heavy thud, landing

Crusade Against Street Loafing.
If the plans of the police department
are carried out street corner loafing, and
especially around saloons, will be tabooed.
For the first time within the past few
months the war against this practice was
begun last evening when Policeman
Young took In custody Prank Bogan,
Frank Brown and Walter Page, colored.
! charged with loafing at the corner of
Cameron and Royal streets. James Lucas,
also colored, was subsequently taken
into custody for the same offense by Policeman
Nicholson. When the men were
arraigned this morning they offered sundry
and divers excuses. The court, however.
fined all $1 each and warned them
that a repetition would mean the Imposition
of a heavier fine.
Much amusement was given the patrons
of the police court this morning when
John Green, ebony black, who said hla
home is in Nelson county, Va., and that
he was fifty-one yeare old. was arraigned,
charged with being drunk. A few hours
earlier Green appeared at police station
and told the officers he wished to be locked
up. His request was promptly complied
with by Chief Goods. "I was craay
drunk; there'e ain't no whisky In my
country. I never was locked up before,
and never done nothing." said Green to
the court. The verdict nf the court waa
that Green be held until he is sober.
Green afterward wanted to tell the court
what to do in his case, but before he
could do so he was hustled down stairs
amid the laughter of those present.
Bread thieves are again becoming active,
and as a result the members of the
police department during the early morning
hours today kept close watch over the
various bread boxes in the city, but they
were unable to catch any of the thieves.
It is the purpose of the police to henceforth
keep close watch over the bread
boxes, and especially those on the outskirts
of the city. Complaints from
grocerymen and bread men of the loss of
bread have almost become a dally occurrence.
It is believed that a heavy jail
sentence on some of the culprits would
soon break up the practice.
Police Court Cages.
Cases disposed of In the police court today
were <as follows: Frank Bogan,
Frank Brown, Walter Page and James
Lucas, colored, loafing on a street corner,
fined $1 each: Willie Richards, colored,
assaulting his wife, fined $5; Benjamin
Johnson, colored, violating the health
laws, fined $5; Lewis Jones, colored, assaulting
William Credit, colored, fined
$20; John Green, colored, of Nelson
county. Va.. drunk, acquitted.
Chilcott & Son, contracting carpenters,
reported to the police this morning, that
thieves last night entered a vacant house
on North West street, where they were
working, and stole a box filled with tools.
An investigation of the theft is being
made by the police.
Cards have been Issued for the marriage
of Miss Mary Robinson Lloyd,
daughter of Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Arthur 8.
Lloyd, and Rev. Edmund Pendleton Dandridge.
The ceremony will take place the
evening of October 6 next at Christ P. E.
Church at 8 o'clock.
Many Alexandrians this afternoon went
to Washington to witness the regatta.
Large numbers of citizens also gathered
on the wharves to see the passing of the
speed boats which made the turn near
Jones point, below this city.
Funeral services over the remains of
Mrs. Verlinoa A. Bull, who died yesterday
morning at her home, Glencarlyn,
Alexandria county, will be held at 3:30
o'clock tomorrow afternoon from the
residence of her nephew. Judge L. C.
Barley, 117 North Columbus street.
JOINS FEDERATION OF LABOR
UNITED BROTHERHOOD OF CABMEN
Ordered by Almost Unanimous
Vote, According to Advices Be
ceived by Secretary Morrison.
Telegraphic advices received today by
Frank Morrison, secretary of the American
Federation of Labor, at heada.uarters
on G street, state that by an almost
unanimous vote last evening the United
Brotherhood of Carmen, comprising employes
of many of the big railroads, at Its
convention being held at Atlanta, Ga., decided
to hereafter affiliate with the
American Federation of Labor. It Is
understood application will be made at
once for a charter.
There is already an organization of
carmen in the federation, and It Is said
to be probable that steps will be taken to
amalgamate the two associations. The
body already affiliated with the A. F. L.
is known as the Carworkers' International
Referring to the matter today Mr. Morrison
said the almost unanimous vote for
affiliation shows the strong sentiment
among the Independent organizations of
railroad men to "get together with organised
labor." The railroad bodies that
are not as yet affiliated with the federation
are the brotherhoods of engineers,

The officials of the A. F. L. are gratified
at the expression of the growth of
sentiment favorable to ciose affiliation of
all labor organizations as expressed by
the carmen at their Atlanta gathering.
The matter will be brought for action before
the executive council of the American
Federation of Labor, which will convene
here October 18.

The nerve of one telephone operator and
the lack of It In four amateur highwaymen
prevented a robbery of the post office
here early this morning.
Harry McCormick Is the telephone operator.

the door and take a look. A masked man
Just then entered the exchange and leveled
a revolver at the operator, telling
him not to move If he valued his life.
Three other men followed close behind

Entire Neighborhood Aroused by
the Murder of a Ranchman.
More Trouble Is Feared.
Special Dispatch to The Star.
BANDY POINT, Tex., September 18Following
a four-day man hunt In
which more than a thousand ranchmen
and posses from Houston participated,
Steve Hayes and Charles Delancey were
lynched early this morning- The lynching
of these two negroes brings the number
of fatalities in the man hunt up to seven,
four negroes and three white men. Two
of the white men killed were H. Armour
Munson, a wealthy ranchman, and Eugene
Hardin, his partner.
The trouble followed the killing of Munson
by Steve Hayes. In an attempt to
arrest Hayes, Hardin and another man
were killed. Hayes and Delanoey were
joined by another bad negro and took to
the plains. Two negroes were killed yesterday
Two hundred men in automobiles and
on horseback chased a gang of negroes
to a point four miles west of Sandy Point,
and by using automobile lampa as searchlights,
located the negroes in a thicket.
Two were killed', but Delancey and Hayes
escaped. However, they were badly
wounded and were rounded up early this
morning and lynched.
More trouble Is feared because usually
quiet negroes have become disturbed, and
the unruly element among the whites
may attempt a general campaign of vengeance.
