Hay Option/Goes Up to ll.42, the
Highest Price in Twelve or
New^ork, May 14.-Another new
feeord/for the season was established
in t&Q cotton market today ; in fact
inan? of the older members agreed
tbjfo it was doubtful if any season in
: ttys entire history of the Exchange
g&rupared with today's. The big fea
- :=rore of the day was ishe price made
by July in the last hour of trading, ll
cents.., In the same time August sold
at 10.73, May made a new record of
XL 42 and spot cotton was quoted at
TL 60. These prices were the highest in
twelve or thirteen years and, added
to this, the transactions were of en?
At times the scene on the floor was
one of tiie greatest disorder, and the
rush of the covering demand threw the
pit into a demoralized condition. At
the opening of the market trading
was by far the most active of the sea?
son, and on the upward rush May
eold at 11.40, July at 10.99 and August
at 10.67, aU new*records.
The Liverpool reports gave warning
that the day would be a lively one, as
sales of spot cotton there readied a
fall dollar a bale higher than yester?
day. Early cables stated that some of
the foreign shorfr interests were in
-'the market, taking ail the cotton
?Sered at the highest prices of a decade.
The largest individual dealer in spot
cotton in this market received a mes?
sage from Liverpool reading as fol?
"The market will only^stop advanc?
ing when cotton gives out It is get?
ing very scarce now. 99
Liverpool stocks are smaller than for
a great many years and the consump?
tion of American cotton is at record
figures. The market started with a
rash with this news from Liverpool,
orders coming mainly from commis?
sion houses. One firm had traded in
- 90,000 bales before midday.
The total amount of cotton which
is now here available for delivery on
Jfay contracts is 89,520 bales, which
has a market value at the current
price of about $58 per bale, or
equivalent to a total valuation of
.nearly $5,200,000. This stock shows an
increase of over 5,000 bales from
Thursday and 10,000 since last Satur?
day, and compares with 32,000 bales
on April 15. The total, amount of cot?
ton now here of all kinds by running
count is 120,000 bales, against 58,000
on April 15.
More cotton is being brought here
by those who had sold the May cot&m
option short, either sn hedges against
transactions in spot cotton, or on
differences between this market and
Liverpool, and who have intended to
make good their contracts to the bull
clique rather than go inso the pit and
effect a settlement by buying the cot?
ton back. Some of those who were
short even brought some cotton back
from Liverpool, and it is understood
several larger lots haye been sent on
here from points in New England,
obtained from mill men and dealers I
there. At the present market price
about $5,000,000 worth of actual cotton
will thus change hands here during
tue closing deal in this May option.
TOBICGO FARMERS DISCOURAGED.
Some of Them Have Plowed Up
Tobacco and Will Grow Cotton
The recent visitations of hail have
so discouraged many of the tobacco
planters that they have plowed up
their tobacco lands and planted them
in cotton. The rising price of cotton
has been very tempting to the farmers
and they are disposed to try their luck

SEN. MILES'S GARBLED REPORT.
Pressure Brought to Bear on the
Secretary of War to Force Kim
to Publish the Whole Report.
Washington, D. C., May 1.-Secre?
tary Root and a nnmber of other offi?
cials in the war department today re?
ceived a circular letter from Herbert
Welsh,of Philadelphia, which has also
?been mailed to a number of private
individuals, in reference to the report
of Lieut. Gen. Miles. The letter de?
sires that letters be addressed to the
President, Secretary Root and others,
asking them to publish, for the in?
formation and guidance of the country
the full report of Gen. Miles regard?
ing affairs in the Philippine Islands.
He suggests that they ' 'especially re?
quest that the report of Major
Hunter, into the facts of the whip?
ping of Filipino prisoners of war, for
the purpose of extracting information
from them," be included in the pub?
lication. He says he has not seen
Gen. Miles's report, *'having been
unable to secure a copy of it from the
war department," but believes that
it contains facts that enlightened
citizens should have. He says that
600,000 souls have perished in those
islands from war, famine and pestil?
ence, under our flag.
Secetary-Root referred the circular
letter, he received to Judge Advocate
The war department today made
public the letter of Adjt. Gen. Corbin
to Gen. Miles, answering one sent to
the Secretary of War yesterday, re?
garding the publication of Gen.
The adjutant general states to whom
the report was given and "enclosed
copies of the reports which were
furnished the press.
In Gen. Miles's reports on the
alleged cruelties, was,also a criticism
of the rice transaction in the recon?
centrado camps in Batangas Province,
and, discussing the mattter, he re?
fers to a report he had recieved from
the commanding general in the Philip?
pines, to which he refers, by saying
(copy herewith enclosed. ) This copy
was not furnished with the report of
Gen. Miles, and it has been charged
that it was suppressed. The war de?
partment today made the copy refer?
red to public. It is a report of Major
Gen. Davis addressed to Gen. Miles
and contains all the correspondence,
telegrams and all documents that refer
to the purchase,. distribution and
sale of rice to the people in the con?
centration camps. It is a very volum?
inous document, but the main features
were covered in summaries which have
heretofore been published.
THE REDUCTION OF NAVIES.
British Government Does Not
Think the Proposition Feasible
at This Time.
London, May 14.-The question of
the reduction of naval armaments came
up today in the House of Commons
in tlie course of the discussion of the
navy estimates. The speakers suggest?
ed that the Government take the first
step in proposing a reduction to other
Powers. Sir Charles Dilke, Adanced
Radical, said he thought this might
In view of the improved relations
betewen Great Britain and France
those two nations might talk the
matter over and subsequently approach
Russia. Even if Germany did not
agree to a reduction the three Powers
might effect something. It was not
necessary for Great Britain to build
against the United States. It would
be as great a mistake to count upon
the United States as an enemy as to
count upon her as an active ally, for
the United States had always been
the great defender of ^the rights of
Mr. Arnold Forster, the admiralty
secretary, after having pointed out
that it was the duty of the admiralty
to deal with facts as they were, and
not as they might be, said that all the
great Powers were increasing their
maritime preparations, notably ^Rus?
sia. According to the available
figures France and Russia together
were now building three more battle?
ships than Great Britain.
Whether European PowTers and the
Power across the Atlantic might come
to seme agreement in regard to the
cessation of armaments was not the
question lie had to deal with now.
The admiralty's present duty was to
give the nation a guarantee against
attack, and more important still,
against defeat by any combination of

THE KENTUCKY MOUNTAINEERS.
Senator Blackburn on the Char?
acter of the Men Who Shot
Senator Blackburn, of Kentucky,
talked freely today regarding the
situation in Breathitt county, where
Attorney J. B. Marcum was assassinat?
ed several days ago. He said that
Kentucky lawlessness was confined to
the mountains of the State, where the
most imcomprehensible people in the
"They are nearly ail illiterate, half
starved and almost naked," said the
Senator, "yet they are the most
hospitable people to be found any?
where. They are dirteaters and quar?
relsome. Many of their feuds are of a
hundred years, standing, and I do not
believe it possible to stop their fight?
ing so long as the people continue to
live. They have a peculiar code of
honor. They never molest a woman,
nor will they shoot an enemy accom?
panied "by a woman or a child.
"I knew Marcum very well.
He was a fine fellow and for several
days he was able to protect himself by
simply being accompanied by a woman
or a child. But they were determined
to get him and waited their chance.
These mountaineers never shoot you
except in the back. They always
shoot from the bushes and never give
a man a chance for his life. In their
way they are honest. A stranger may
stop with them in the meanest hovel
and never have any fear of being rob?
bed. The mountaineer will lie on the
dirt floor and give his bed to the
stranger. He will divide his food with
him and will be insulted if offered
any -money for his hospitality, yet for
$25 he would not hesitate to seize his
rifle and hide in the bushes and shoot
the first man who came along.
"There have been various theories
advanced to account for the peculiar
nature of these people, and one is that
many years ago all the escaped convicts
from the adjoining States fled into
the mountains of Kentucky for refuge,
and their descendants are now raising
the devil. It is born in them and
nothing can eradicate it. I doubt
whether the man who killed Marcum
will ever be arrested and tried. No
one would appear against him, but he
is a marked man, and sooner or later
he will be shot in the same way that
"I knew that Goebel was going to be
killed and I warned him several times,
but I made one mistake. When the
capital met in a body I thought that
it would occur then, and when they
went back to their homes I thought
the danger was passed, but I should
have paid more attention to the char?
acter of the mountaineer and would
then have seen through the plans of
the assassin. I admit that it is a de?
plorable situation, but I cannot see
any remedy except time."-Washing?
SHOOTING IN FLORENCE.
Florence, ' May 14.-Mr. Robert J.
Whitton, a popular young Coast Line
engineer of this city, was shot and
probably .fatally wounded" by Mr. R.
A. Hatley, a young sewing machine
agent of Lee County, at a bouse in the
northern part - of the city, about ll
o'clock last night. The story of the
tragedy is almost unobtainable, owing
to the fact that all present refrain
from giving an account of what hap?
pened. From what could be gathered,
however, it seems as if a dispute was
going on and young Whitton tried to
act as peacemaker, and was attempt?
ing to keep Hatley and another young
man from getting into a personal
encounter, when Hatley drew a pistol
and fired. The ball entered below the
second rib, near the collar-bone?rang
ing downward and pierced the lung.
Whitton was carried home, and Drs.
McLeod and Gregg were soon at his
side. He has been in an unconscious
condition most of the time and the
physicians fear that he cannot recover.
Hatley was arrested this mornbing at
his boarding house and is now in jail
awaiting the result of his pistol shot.
Whitton is a clever young man and is
highly respected, and the terrible
tragedy that will probably cost him
his life is deeply deplored by our peo?
ple. Hatley has not been in Florence
long, and is not generally known. It
is stated that Hatley is a married man.

COTTON SPINNERS' ASSOCIATION.
President Hiss' Opinion of the
Baneful Effect of "Cotton Fu?
tures" on Producer and Man?
Charlotte, N. C., May H.--In his
annual address to the Southern Cotton
Spinners association which met here
today, President George B. Eliss gave it
as his opinion that the cotton market
"manipulators" exercised an unfavor?
able influence on the producer and
manufacturer. Mr. Hiss said, inpart:
"During the past two years manu?
facturers using American grown cot?
ton have failed to secure a proper mar?
gin of profit and it has been during
these last two years that cotton
'manipulators' have held their great?
est sway. It is estimated that be?
tween 80,000,000 and 100,000,000 bales
of cotton are bought and sold annually
in this country, while we actually
produce an average of but 10,000,000
"It is not probable that these
'manipulators' have an unfavorable
bearing on profits of the manufac?
turers of this country using American
"Except in a few special fabrics,
the price the 'manipulators' has fixed
for cotton today is out of all propor?
tion to the price the manufacturer
can realize for his product. Is there
not a remedy for this situation? If
the cotton manufacturer could arrange
to buy his year's supply of raw stock
by making his purchase during the
period covered from September 1 to
December 1 of each year (as is largely
the case without foreign competitors),
three would be but slight opportunity
for the 'manipulator' to juggle a
profit out of the few hundred thou?
sands bales not taken up by these pur?
