So far as legitimate business In cotton Is
concerned, consumers, abroid are somewhat
nervous and this attitude has encouraged
the bull party.
The recent failure of Price. McCormlck
i. Co. was due to the unwillingness of the
foreigners to be "cornered," as they be
lieved they were destined to bo If they
bought at prices fixed by this combina
tion. Sutfcequent events, however, showed
that the firm iuading the bull movent nt
hal correctly gauged the crop situation and
of late the foreigners have tumbled over
one another in the effort to obtain supplies

cotton can scarcely be maintained at 10
cents n pound Print c'utln constitute a
unit of value for cotton, and at the present
ratio cotton is abnormal! high.
A number of dealers agreed, after the close
of the cotton market to-day, that reces
sion were in order and that It was too
much to expect that the 10-ccr.t level could
be maintained. On the contrarj. thrso ex
perts took the stand that with the excep

would be dcur in the near future at 8 cents

COOLNESS AMONG THE GOULDS.
Countess Castellane Slighted the
l-'dwius and Howards.
Paris, June 2S Rumors of a growing cool
ness between tho Countess BonI dc Castel
lane, the Edwin Goulds and tho Howard
Gould, nre agitating Parisian social circles.
Gossip saj-s that thero has been a split be
tween tho Countess nnd her relatives, con
seiu. nt upon the recent over-seas trip of
the noble pair and the ensuing famllj- dls-tU-sion
as to finances. This; however, is In
dignantly tlenlsl by the Castellane clique.
uNo by tho friends of the Goulds.
However, those who urge that trouble Is
brewing jsilnt to the fact that thu names of
the Countess's sistcrs-ln-law worn not upon
tho roster of guests Invited to her recent
jlcturtrquo fete. Although the "Edwins"
and. the "Howards" as socletj- has found It
necessarj- to differentiate them are at pres
ent enlivening Parisian life. It ls held by
social arbiter, to be significant that the
roster wns Gould-lessk.
The fete Itself wan noteworthy not alone
for Its magnificence as to tho feminine and
floral garniture, but also for the decorative
costuming of the sterner sex. The men
wore dress coats of varied hue, faced with
rainbow colors, and the social set of tho De
CnstellaneH 1 declared to be on the point of
adopting the gajer raiment permanentlj-.
If this be- brought about, society experts
declare. It will have proved Anna Gould a
greater sartorial power than ever was the
Prince of Wales himself. Society recalls
with amusement the attempts of the Prince
to effect a reform In men's attire. He failed,
however, and the frle-nds of the Countess
are rejoicing at tho prospect of her outdoing
England's "Arbiter Klegantlura."

Mrs. nillott loilg.d Information against
Doctor Irvine In March. IK'J. charging him
with forgery. The alligation was that he
signed her name to a btter addressed to
Bishop Talbot. For nearly three months
previously- the relations between Doctor
Irvine and Mrs. Klllott. a pirishioier, had
be-en vcrj' much strained, and Bishop Talbot
was cognizant of the dllllcultj- between
At tho prellmluarj- hearing accorded Doc
tor Irvine on .March 17. ls:9, it dev elope-!
that the plaintiff alleged tint the criminal
charge made against him wad the culmina
tion of a consplrucj entered Into bj- tho
three defendants, and he sought to substan
tiate this assertion bj- quoting from a letter
written by Bishop Talbot to the Elliotts, In
which the Elliotts are urged to have Doctor
Irvine Indicted and convicted. This letter
read in part:
"I cannot find nnj thing to try Doctor
Irvine on for violation of morals or canons,
but If jou prostcuto him and have him con
victed In a court of record I will unfrock
the Blimy fellow for you."
The Grand Jurj- found an Indictment
charging the clergyman with forgery, hut
when the case was called for trial the Court
sustained the defendant's demurrer to the
Indictment, and nothing more came of It.
The charge was subsequently withdrawn,
the plaintiff pajlng the costs.
Doctor Irvine contends that th presence
cf Bishop Talbot at the council table ot
the prosecution when the furgery case was
calle-d for trla" was evidence of tho Bh.hop'8
designs against his subordinate.
Other allegations are that the Bishop de
signedly conspired to ruin the rrospects of
the plaintiff in his conduct since the dispo
sition of the forgery case.
It ls alleged that the Bishop called Doctor
Irvine to appear before the Standing Com
mittee of the diocese In Wllkesbarre, In
June, last jear, to elh-solvo his pastoral re
lations with St. John's Church, without
canonical authority-, nnd that, because of
being restrained In this by tho Luzerne
Countj- Court, he seat a committee of three
Inquisitors to Huntingdon to Inquire into
the moral conduct of Doctor Irvln''. This
committee made an adverse report.
An ecclesiastical trial was ordered by
Blshop Talbot. Doctor Irvine was adjudged
gulltj'. and on April 23. Vm. hl3 deposition
of the ministry was publlclj- announced in
St. Luke's Church. Scranton, by Bishop Tal
