that the Leek family were absent and
asked the negroes to explain their pres

The negroes claimed that they had
been sent there to beat some carpets, but
this explanation did not disarm their
suspicion. Accordingly the women sent
word to the Mounted District Police Sta
tion and Policeman James Harrison, who
was only a short distance away, was dis
patched to the scene.
Harrison took up the chase, being direct
ed to the route taken by the negroes. He
Jumped Into a wagon and was driven to
Page boulevard, where he Jumped oft and
pursued them on foot. He did not fire any
shots, but the fact that the driver waa
beating his horse and urging it on at
tracted a crowd Into the chase.
Policeman Punshon of the Mounted Dis

of a Page avenue car and was attracted
by the mob following the negroes. He
urged the motorman to throw on the pow

was able to overtake them before they
were aware that he was near. At Clara

stopped the negroes. Both showed fight
and a hand-to-hand struggle ensued.
One of the negroes, who gave his name
as Robert Brown of No. 3S Montrose
avenue, picked up a stone, while his com-
E anion. Ike Soddrldge. of No. 22 South

was discharged Soddrldge struck it with
his hand, and that bullet wont wild- Be

of the weapon and was struggling for pos

Soddrldge burled his teeth tn Punshon 'a

his weanon. Soddrldge then fell to the
ground and said be had been shot.

Soddrldge. Punshon turned his attention
to Brown, who was standing In the cutter.
After grappling with him for a short
time. Punshon brought the weapon down
on Brown's head, inflicting a scalp wound.

The policeman held to his prisoner.

or about 47 points less than the high point
of Monday, and while there wa consid
erable cottoa for sale on the way up, pro
moting frequent reactions, the market
showed an advancing tendency In the mala
during the afternoon.
A report that a Southern ginning asso
ciation had estimated the condition of the
crop at n per cent, and claiming a re
duction la the acreage of 2.7 per cent In
cluding 5.1 per cent for abandoned lands,
helped the market toward the close, which
was steady and within a point or two of
the top.
Sales' were estimated at X0.6 bales.
There was some further talk of high tem-
Kratures in Texas, but. generally speak
r. cUmatlc conditions were considered
good and Southern spot markets were un
changed to M lower, according to official
New Orleans. Aug. i-In Its summary
of the cotton situation the Times-Democrat
will say to-morrow:
"Yesterday's cotton market responded
to an Increase in bullish sentiment In the
face of a poor Liverpool, and a somewhat
general belief that the trade as a whole
should not acct.pt the bureau report this
morning without Important reservations,
no matter what the showing should pan
cut to be. The day'a most encouraging
feature from the viewpoint of the high
price man was the rather unexpected but
effective opposition that developed in the
ranks of spot holders to a further decline
in the value of the actual stuff. With
spots again on the upgrade, renewed ac
tivity in the long side of the account
should be due In short order, unless, of
course, a bearish showing by the bureau
should be taken seriously.
-Just now. however, the talent is pin
ning faith to private crop reports to a
greater extent than for a long while, and
the burden of the bulletins has been pessi
mistic throughout the season thus far.
The big question before the talent is
how much of the old surplus of American
cotton will be left at the end or next sea
son, rather than how short will the cur
rent crop prove. On the answer depends
absolutely the ability of the bears to hold
in check a runaway 'market should one
develop. In the fsce of short crop proba
bilities, the threat from the spinner to
delay purchases of the actual stuff for
three months, and the premature demon
stration of the likelihood or a big strike
at Lancashiro should not strike terror to
the hearts or the farmer, for the latter
now knows, or should know. Just what
sort of a preposition he Is up against.
Clearw the advantage this season favors

"Hut the spinner Is by no means de
fenseless, for the farmer, under the spur
of the speculator, may yet overplay his
Sart and lose much of the good he might
ave gained.
"Bullish leadership was lacking vester
day. though there as evidence or buying
for the account of some New York's lead
ing bulls on the theory that the bureau
report would confirm pessimistic crop
