NEW YORK. August 2.?The cotton
market opened firm at an advance of "all
points on continued covering and fresh
buying for long account, inspired bv i
drought damage complaints from the
southwest and a private condition report
showing a deterioration of <!.!> per

to confirm bullish views as to the pr< liable

at midday, and while there was heavy

The market was active and irregular
late in tiie forenoon on evening up for

well maintained, with active new
crop positions holding about Sal*?

figures of ".Yd per cent when issued
proved to be just equal to expectations.

to a net loss of about Sail points, although

Perfection That Repels.
From Uie N. w York World.
In Kentucky, opposite Evansville. Ind.,
a golden rule town is being built. There
are to be no saloons, no public officials,
no graft, no mono|>olies.
There is an idylic group of islands in i
the Straits archipelago. No drunkenness
is known there, no crime, no policeman,
no jail. Money is a forbidden plague, all
trade being by barter. We do not learn
of a concerted rush of dreamers to OocosKeeling
In Orsa. Sweden, there are no taxes. In
Broek. Holland, there is no dirt. In
Destard. Brazil, there are thirteen choral
societies to l.'.ono people. The immigration
to these places is negligible.
Man dreams of perfection and the absolute
satisfaction of desire. Yet he is born
contrary. He will not have the supreme
good thrust upon him. For that which
lie shall jKjssess he wills to struggle. So

ing place In the I'nited States to keep J
A Bernhardt Trick.
From the Strand.
Mine. Sarah Bernhardt, who is supposed
to be something of an artist as
well as an actress, was recently called
upon in one of her marvelous creations
to enact the role of a sculptor, and to
model a certain bust in view of the audience.
This fairly electrified the critics,
but when going into rhapsodies over tlie
technical skill in handling the clay which
Mine. Bernhardt exhibited they showed
that they knew little of tlie artistic tricks
of actors and actresses; as a matter of
fact, she does nothing of the kind. The
bust is modeled and Iwtked, and over it
is placed damp clay of the same color.
This the talented actress merely pulls
off. leaving the beautifully modeled head
LOCAL FINANCIAL NEWS.
If any of the ten brokers who attended

The attendance was about -Vi per cent
lass than is usual during the busy season.
It is believed, however, that if small
blocks of stock rft some of the securities
had been offered at recessions from current
figures buyers would have been
In the bank stock list one of the brokers
took a notion to mark up the bid
price in some cases. In consequence the
bid for Columbia Bank stock was changed
from 250 to 255, and an asking price
was given as 275.
The bid for Commercial Bank stock
was advanced a half a point, to 198^,
and then some surprise was occasioned
by an offer of one hundred shares or
any part at 199. which Js several points
less than the current asking price. But
there was no scramble for such a
block: that is, the rush was not noticeable.
and the rest of the bank list was
finished 'without contributing anything
to the transactions of the day, except
the sale of five shares of the stock of
the .Merchants and Mechanics' Savings
Bank at 151.
Two small lots of street railwaystock
served to satisfy the demand for
that class of securities. It was noted,
however, that the purchaser of ten
shares of Capital Traction stock paid
128 a share, which is somewhat higher
than the prevailing rates, and shows
an upward tendency which might appear
to be rather unusual in light of
the recent statement by President
Hamilton that the company is expending
about a million and a half of dollars
in improvements and enlargement.
However, that furnishes a reason to
some for looking upon the stock as
more valuable than it was some time
ago. because these extraordinary expenses
are to be met by an issue of 5
per cent bond, which, in accordance
with the policy of the company, are to
be offered to the stockholders of record
at par. As they sell at a premium,
such issues of bonds by the company
have always been in the nature of an

CASH IN U. S. TREASURY
EXCEEDS ONE BIlllON
Financial Showing Made in
in Public Debt.
. A grand total cash in the Treasury of
$1,733,037,808; a total balance in the general
fund of $92,350,224; a working balance
in the Treasury office of $30,502,824,
and a decrease of $303,136 in the public
debt during July is the way the monthly
Treasury statements show the situation
The total ordinary receipts for July
were $58,S17,933, and the disbursements
$68,411,700, exclusive of disbursements of
$4,441,558 ror the Panama canal ana or
SI,726,882 received on account of the public
debt and of disbursements of $2,230,019
on that account. The excess of all disbursements
over all receipts is $14,538,451,
against an excess of $18,63t,874 in all disbursements
over all receipts in July, 1909.
Ordinary Receipts Increased.
The total ordinary receipts, which mean
those outside of the canal and the public
debt, were approximately $5,000,000 greater
than in July last year, while the ordinary
disbursements were approximately
$1,100,000 more than the same comparative
date. The latter increase is par|
tially accounted for by the $1,300,000 more
paid on the census the past month than in
j the previous July. The corporation tax,
; aggregating $0,117,258 this month, helped
I to account for the increased receipts.
The customs receipts of $25,051,511 mark
a falling off of virtually $3,000,000 from
July of last year, attributable, in part at
least, to the rush of importations just
prior to the passage of the tariff bill
last summer. The internal revenue, outside
of the corporation tax, amounted
this month to $23,404,489, which is approximately
$2,256,000 more than during
the previous July. The miscellaneous receipts
also showed a slight Increase.
Minting of Pieces Discontinueesesi
The disbursements run about even between
the two dates, except that the civil
and miscellaneous payments, which include
the large census outgo, overran the
same account for July, 1909, by more
There are now in existence 7,182 national
banks, with an authorized capital
of $1,003,717,135. These include 19, with
a capital of $885,000, authorized during
July to begin business, of which 11 had
individual capital of less than $^0,000 and
the others more than that amount. Twenty-one
applications were received during
the month. Altogether there have been
9,822 national banks so far organized, of
which 2,840 have discontinued business.
The total amount of national bank circulation
outstanding is $712,025),828, of
which $684,468,093 is secured by bonds
and $27,561,735 is covered by lawful
money of a like amount deposited wun

In financial crises, a precautionary

Inquiries as to what steps are necessary
.along this line were received at the Treasury
yesterday from banking interests
in Cincinnati, Columbus, New- Orleans,

making nineteen which so far have taken
steps in this direction. The by-laws of

CHICAGO, August 2.?A big increase in
the European visible supply, better ciop
reports from France and heavy shipments
from Russia were among the foreign influences
that were weighed on the wheat
market here today. Big receipts, fine
weather and a decline in corn stood as
domestic factors even more forceful
against the price of the cereal. An average
vield of twenty bushels to the acre
in Illinois, according to figures from 500
stations, formed a further bearish argument.
in consequence there was quite
general selling by longs.
The market opened Ua38 to % lower.

READY FOR CONTEST.
Developments at Republican State
Convention Likely to Be of
National Interest. i
DES MOINES. Iowa, August 2.?A
meeting potent with possibilities of exciting
developments at the republican
state convention was held at the Coli- <
seum to^ay by a number of "standpat" :
leaders. It was said to be the purpose
of the conference to prepare a plank in- ,
dorsing President Taft in no uncertain
terms, as well as the legislation passed ]
during the last session of Congress. 1
Frank D. Jackson, president of the Iowa
Taft Club, was chosen chairman of the
meeting. Others present were former
Representatives Eacey and Hepburn and !
George D. Perkins, who was defeated by 1
Cummins for the republican gubernatorial ,
nomination four years ago.
Minority Report. 1
The Taft plank, unless the program 1
changes before tomorrow, will come be- ]
fore the convention embodied in a mi- 1
"When the vote is counted on this plank
the White House will be able to locate
its friends, if nothing else is accomplished,"
declared a conservative del- \
Feeling runs high among the delegates ]
and politicians who poured into the city
on every train today. Stand-pat leaders
do not hesitate to state that any attempt ,
at "rough riding" by the progressives <
will mean democratic success in every
close district in the state next fall. j
Senator Dolliver was among the day's ,
arrivals. There was much talk to the effect
that he would be the permanent (
chairman, although he disclaimed all ,
knowledge of it. 1
CONDITION OF COTTON CROP.
Falling Off Shown in Government i
Report No Surprise.
The average condition of the cotton j
crop July 25 was 75.5 per cent of a normal,
according to a bulletin of the crop-> j
reporting board of the Department of
Agriculture issued at noon today. The
average condition was 80.7 June 25, 71.0
July 25 last year, 8a.O in 1008, 75.0 in j
1007 and 70.4 the ten-year average.

did not surprise experts who have kept
informed of the conditions that have prevailed
in the cotton belt. The heavy
rains which occurred east of the Missis- '
sippi during the month of July were
known to he detrimental to the crop, so
that the decrease In the average of the ]

TO WIND UP AFFAIRS. j
Receivers Ordered to Sell Property \
of National Automobile College. t
As the result of a hearing before Justice t
Wright in the .District Supreme Court 2
yesterday in receivership proceedings in *
the affairs of the National Automobile (
College, 1509 7th street northwest, Justice t
Wright today signed an order directing 1
that all of the property of the college j
should be appraised by receivers and sold ,
and all debts .of the college paid. That
accomplished, the remaining proceeds of
the sale are to be reported to the court
for further order of distribution. I
Clarence J. Warnick and Napoleon Hill
were the partners in the business, and a
when receivership proceedings were be- v
gun Warnick sought to establish his b
title to personhl ownership of a Parry
automobile, which, it was said, had been
purchased, wholly or in part, with a fund 11
of $900 received in the settlement of an 1
insurance policy on an Overland automo- r
bile which, it w-as shown, was destroyed '
by fire. Justipe Wright ordered that the s
Parry auto should be regarded as property

DESERT RICHES. I
Wild Pampas Produce Wool and f
Hides Worth Millions. 11
"roni Harper's Magazine. $
The pampas of Patagonia, famous for |
heir sheep ranches, are great, desolate t
leserts, sometimes level as far as the eye *
an reach, sometimes undulating in grace- X
ful monotony, and again a chaos of lava |
-ock. A few swift, dangerous rivers have *
plowed steep canyons. In slighter de- *
presslons, where snow melts and water X
iccumulates, there are grassy meadows. *
Several hundred sheep were brought f
from the Falklands in 1877 to Punta ?
Arenas, and sheep raising was thus first t
introduced into the regions of the strait. |
Prom this nucleus and shipments which ?
followed the stormy terrltorio de Magel- I
anes (of Chile) today carries perhaps J
1,000,000 sheep. | t
Punta Arenas is its center and base of ; 8
lupplies. To the north of the strait, | ?
louth of Rio Santa Cruz (Argentina), the ; ~~
ittoral and contiguous river valleys sup- ' W
port perhaps 1,000,000 more. 1 X
Thus this little lonely strait settlement, ! J,
lie mecca of southern Chile and Pata- A
;onia, is one of the great wool exporting
>orts of the world, shipping away on A
steamers three years ago over 16,000,000 y
lounds of wool, with a commercial value V
)f over $1,600,000. In addition to this ?
here was a sale of nearly 400,000 pelts,
rhus sheep raising in these regions has ?
neen more lucrative than gold digging |
md more profitable than copper. J,
Although here in southern Patagonia J,
lie few million sheep graze on some of A
he poorest land in Argentine territory, A
ret they go far toward piling up her en- A
irmous total of perhaps 70,000,000 head
if sheep, making her first as an exporter K*
if frozen meat, and second only as a
shipper of wool, justifying her maintain- V

iince 1848 it has been superseded as a ,
iglithouse by the magnificent one at

he effect of this lighthouse as 1 stood Jinder
