Atwood Violet Co 8 Cotton Report
Special to the Gazette
New Orleans La Sept 23 Atwood
Violett Co say
Futures Our telegram from New York
today said We shall likely close as high
or higher than Saturday and although not
realized as that market closes about 14
points lower than Saturday there was
great steadiness considering the large
movement at portstoday > vluch is 50000
against 00000 last year and the promise
hero tomorrow of 20000 all of which New
York know before closing
The effect upon the market of the Liver
pool decline of 5041 was to cause a decline
of about 19 points at the beginning from
which there was a reaction and we close at
2 to 3 points better than the lowest of the
dayThe
The bullish influence seemed to control
principally in New York and the evident
strength of the holding power there In
dicates that buyers or controllers in that
market represent moro than usual strength
and although there may be no concentrated
interest by buyers there is evidently suffi
cient gofd buying to make in tho aggregate
a considerable amount of cotton in strong
rt stocks tonight are 204000 larger
than last year If Liverpool can be in
stilled with some of the bullish feeling on
this side prices should improve and if our
advices are correct they will be better
Tho question is really a heavy movement
against tho fear of very unfavorable bureau
reports on the 10th of October This seems
to sum up the situation

New York Sept 2S The stock market
today was comparatively quiet except
during the first hour when eveningup of
deals in Missouri Pacific was in
progress The purchase of stock today
was evidently in the interest of
tho Gould party and judging from theso
purchases the decline in stock has in all
probability reached its limit The sell
ing in tho first hour espe
cially came from professional oper
ators who were looking for further
reaction in prices and selected that stock
as mostly likely to respond to their efforts
and have the most influence on the rest of
the list A wellfounded statement was
circulated on the street that Gould
would abido by the decision of the
directors of the Missouri Pa
cific as to whether or not a onehalf
per cent dividend will be declared This
and other influences started the bears to
eoifering their shorts in the stock late in
the day and it recovered all of its drop of 4
IVJr cent
iTho announcement that the Union Pacific
funding plau was completed and an assured
success was also an influential factor in
the late rise the bears again seeing their
chief reliance was in the invulnerability of
the Gould stocks slipping away from them
The feats of amonetary stringency which
have of late been troubling tho bears are
now pretty well laid aside as some 9000
000 are now on its w ay to this country and
tho movomont has only fairly well begun
Mr Russell Sage said today that there
are no conditions looking to a stringency in
at thiscenter this fall

iTgOutsideof Gould stocks and the early
Weakness and the late strength there is no
part of the list except Grangers and
Vandcrbilts which scored a movement
worthy of notice during the day
The market closed fairly active and firm
leaving most stocks fractionally lower than
Saturday while only a material loss for the
day was in Wabash preferred which Is 1
per cent low er
Government bonds were dull but steady
State bonds were dull and steady

A FALL FROM A MOVING TRAIN
Two Accidents In a Laundry Charged
With Lunacy Mr and Mm Connor
of the State Fair Hack from
the East His Report
Special to the Gazette
Dallas Tex Sept 23 Last nights
Texas and Pacifio eastbound passenger
train brought to this city from Arlington
Role Bealan who tells a pitiful story He
says he was stealing a ride on a freight
train and near Arlington he was knocked
off the train by a trainman He struck the
ground with great force mashing his loft
foot He was terribly bruised about the
body and a bad cut is on his head Some
people saw the fall and took the man to
Arlington station where he was put on the
passenger train and brought to Dallas He
was removed to tho hospital where his in
juries were attended
Many people in Dallas are talking of
Velasco the new deepwater harbor of
Texas and all predict for it a creat future
Tho benefits to bo gained for the state can
never be computed While many Dallas
ites favor Galveston and deep water there
yet all recognize the fact that many years
will pass before that city can hope to be a
deepwater port Velasco has accomplished
what Galveston will boyears in attaining
and Texas can at once begin to reap the
bene2tl Men of financial standing say that
Velasco is destined to be a great commer
cial city if she has the depth of water
claimed by her people Railroads will hunt
deep water and the harbor that will first
secure it will get the railroads The rail
roads will seek Velasco and from her ports
will bo shipped the surplus products of the
West The deepwater question has so
long been talked of as a possibility for
Texas that it is somewhat hard to convince
many that it is an assured fact A number
of parties from this city have gone to
Velasco to investigate the matter for them
selves and if the condition of affairs is
found as reported many will move to that
cityThis
This afternoon Miss Lizzie Chambers an
employ of Vendig Bros laundry had the
misfortune to horribly lacerate one of her
hands Janette a negro girl was put to
work in her place Janette worked about
an hour when in some way she met with
an accident similar to the one that befell
Miss Chambers although not quite so
serious

Hon W C Connor president of the
Texas state fair and Dallas exposition re
turned last night from the North where he
went in the interest of the association Of
his trip Mr Connor says It was emi
nently satlfactorv in every particular I
spent a week in Kansas City and Chicago
and one day at tho St Louis exposition
While In Chicago r closed deals for a num
ber of new and highly interesting attrao
lions for the fair among which was Kiral
fys spectacular play Around the World in
Eighty Days This troupe has 100 people
including many artists of note Nightly
performances will be given in the music
hall thereby keeping the grounds open un
til 11 oclock p in This Is a great attrac
tion and secured at an enormous expensa
I also secured the attendance of Rosebury
the great jumping horse This attraction
alone is a great card as Rosebury is of na
tional reputation having never been beaten
While in Chicago Mrs Connor and myself
called upon Mrs Potter Palmer lady pres
ident of the Worlds fair and other ladles
and extended them an invitation to attend
the fair and bo present with us on Worlds
fair day Many Inquiries are coming in
asking for special days I would say that
all special days will bo named this
week and immediately made pub
lic It has been determined
already to have a Knights of Pythias a
Press and Farmers Alliance day A
School Childrens day has been suggested
I am in receipt of a letter from Mr J P
Pugh president of tho Virginiapress asso
ciation which states that the association
will visit Texas during the fair having
canceled an engagement to visit Cincin
nati Arrangements for excursion rates
with the railroads are entirely satisfactory
All roads West of the Mississippi river have
made low rates and the chances are flatter
ing for these samerates to be had on all
lines as far East as Buffalo and Pittsburg
also from Tennessee Georgia Alabama and
Mississippi If these rates are secured it
will be the first time that Texas will have
secured halffare rates from such an ex
tended territory
Gen Stanley and Ma Burbants have
notified tne that military companies will
move in Dallas October 14 and promise the
grandest military drills ever given in Texas
all during the fair Intact the work is all
well in hand and the fair will undoubtedly
be a success asfar asv attractions are con
cerned
