ON SHARP DEMAND
Law of Supply iind Demand Takes Con?
troy of Cotton Market? Authorities
Figuring on Acreage Reduction?
Wide Hange of Opinions.
New York. June 14.?Prices have
been advancing on the strength of
the law of supply and demand. There
has been a very sharp demand for
spot cotton at the South. Liverpool
spot sales throw some light on the
situation. They have been at times
12.OU0 to 14.000 bales a day. Man
chester has been more active at firm
er prices. The big exports this sea
son and the large takings of domestic
and foreign mills are factors of the
first Importance. Wall street and
Waldorf-Astoria operators have all
been buying. Room operators who
had taken the short side on the recent
good weather over much of the belt
have been swept into line. Some
think that the bulls are over estimat
ing the consumption and underesti
mating the growing crop.
Where advocates of higher prices
profess to believe that the next crop
cannot be over 13,000.000 bales beares
think It more probable that it will be
14,000.000 bales If not more. They
also believe that a large surplus will
be carlrcd over Into next season, part
ly of cotton grown during the present
season but not marketed, to Bay noth
ing of the actual visible supply which
will be on hand Sept. 1. They think
the present price amply discounts all
the strongest arguments of the bulls.
Yet many experienced men are act
ing on the bull side. They think the
price Is cheap around 11 to 111-4
or even 11 1-2 cents and is bound to
Some authorities state that the cot
ton acreage has been reduced 7.6 per
cent, and that even Texas which
many had supposed was goinn to
show an Increase actually exhibits a
decrease of 3 per cent. The biggest
decrease is put at n per cent, in
Georgia. Then follow Alabama and
Florida with 10.S per cent, Arkansas
with 10.6 per cent, Oklahoma, with
10, Mississippi with !t.T, South Caro
lina with 4, North Carolina 7; Ten
nessee 6; Texas 3 and Louislanna 1.7
?per cent. This figures out a total ac
reage of only 33,883,000 acres ngalnst
30,681.000 last year. The crop is :'.
to 4 weeks late. Within the last 30
days cr6p prospects according to some
reports, have improved. But many
believe that the chances are against
a crop of adequate size being raised.
The chief feature is the excellent de
mand for the actual cotton at home

TWO CONVICTED OF MUHDES.
Alleged Slayers of Uttle Andre? Jack?
son Found Guilty.
Florence. June 15.?The jury in the'
case of Tarry Mclntosh and John Wil
liams, charged with the murder of'
little Andrew Jackson, brought in a
verdict or guilty at 11.30 o'cloc. The
court room was filled with people, a
number of whom were ladles who had
sat throughout (he day listening to the
case. Attorneys McNeill, Davis and
Oliver spoke to the jury for the de
fence, and Solicitors Wells and Spears
for the State. The arguments were
completed at 10 o'clock. The judge's
cha.'ge at 10:30 and the jury retired
Immediately, being In the room about
forty minutes. There was a slight
demonstration when the Jury handed
up their verdict, but Judge Shlpp
quelled It in a second.
The usual motion for new trial was
Florence, June 15.?The case of the
State vb Harry Mclntosh and John
Williams, charged with the murder of
little Andrew Jackson, In this city,
about two months ago, was entered
Into shortly before the court of gen
eral sessions adjourned yesterday af
ternoon, and will be late In tonight
and probably tomorrow morning be
fore the atorneys will get through
with their argumets, the judge his
charge and the jury go to their room.
After the Jury In th<e Hill case came
Into court yesterday, the defense mov
ed for a continuance of the case on
the grounds that some of their wit
nesses were not present and not ac
cessible; that they had not had access
to the testimony taken at the coroner's
inquest; that there was not sufficient
time In which the court could hear the
casf before adjournment would be nec
essary on account of the limitation of
the Court, and that it would require
some time to secure a Jury, as It was
likely that an extra venire would have
to be summoned, .indue Shlpp over
ruled all these points and ordered the
case to trial.
The court then proceeded to secure
the jury and there were 32 of the 'M
names of the panel drawn before the
full jury was gotten. The State ob
jected to only one of the jurors called
and the defense 13.
The jury as made up and sworn is
as follows: I,. T. Harnes, foreman;
Ell Hatchell, W. B. White. S. E. Han
na. S. W. Floyd, George Warr, B. M.
Truiuck, A. H. McLeod, M. S. Heynes
worth, J. J. Daniels, Tom Maree and
H. E. Willis. The counsel for both the
defense and the State agreed that It
was not necessary to keep the Jury to
gether and they were permitted to re
tire when the court adjourned last
Court convened promptly at 'J o'clock
this morning and the court cautioned
the large audience, for the court room
was literally packed to its utmost, that
silence must be maintained throughout
the trial. A noticeable fact was the
presence of a very large number of'
ladies of the city, who took deep Inter
est in the proceedings, for some of j
them had never before been In a court
house while court was in session, and
the sheriff or the bailiffs did not have
to call them to order once during the

John Williams, were brought Into
court and placed in the dock. Mcln

mother by the side of his counsel with

When the> prisoners were brought in
there was a general craning of necks
to see them. They are both typical
Africans, one of the thin, ferret-like
type and the other the rotund type,
with small bead-like and shifty eyes,
looking startled and apprehensive as
they came In handcuffed together, but
both sleek and well kept and evidently
with small sense of moral responsibil
ity for the crime of which they stand
accused. They are about grown, and
are Intelligent looking as that type of
African generally is. They became
more composed as the time passed on.
and watched the drawing of the Jury,
and the faces of their distinguished
council, for it does not often happen
that negro youths are so well repre
sented as these two are.
A number of witnesses were exam
ined, but perl, i the evldnce most
damaging to the defendants was the
following statement of Freddie Mcln
tosh while In jail:
I was standing on Evans street, near
Mr. Jorndan's, where John and Harry
passed by in the hack, driving the gray
mare, and saw little Andrew Jackson
jump up behind the hack. I saw 11... r\
take him by the arm and get him in
the hack. Harry told John to drive
fast, and they went on back to the
stable. I went on back home and was
standing at the wood pile and I saw
Harry hold Andrew and John hit him
two hard licks with a piece of iron,
once on the back and once on the sidti
of the head, and Andrew hollered, "Oh
Lord, 1 am dead and can't see my
mamma any more; I would have been
home if those boys had not held me
Oil that hack and brought me here."
Tills was under the hack shed. Wil
liam Poxworth was there too, and saw
everything. Me knows more than I
do about it, for he was back there
When .lohn hit he fell to the ground
and Harry jumped on him and choked
him; they then put him in the long
stable. This was between 7 and 8
o'clock. He stayed there until the hoys
came back from the depot that night,
then John and Harry brought him in
the house and put him in the cloBet,
near the telephone, and covered up.
They kept him in the closet until
the next night about 10 o'clock. John
and Harry took him out of the closet
and put him In the hack; they was
wrlvlng "Big John" and carried him
off. The next morning I heard them
talking together at the depot, and they
said they had Andrew In a safe place;
that he would soon rot In that car
box. When they took him out of the
house he was wrapped up In two or
three of my mother's old skirts?one
black and one yellow. They said they
was going off from here. I told them
If they did I would tell Mr. Burch;
they said I had better not tell Mr.
Burch nothing. On the night of the
killing my mother was cooking sup
per when the boyB carried him In the
house and my sister, Luclle, was sick
in bed, and my father was In Wilming
ton, N. C, on his run. He did not
come back until the next night. I
do not think my father and mother
knowed anything about it. and Wil
liam did not help John and Harry, but
he was there and saw it all.
