LINCOLN MONUMENT SITE RECOMMENDED Washington, .luly 25,?The commis? sion on fine arts to-day recommended that the $2,000,000 memorial to Abra? ham Lincoln, In this city, take tha; form of n monument in Potomac Park on the same axis as the Capltoi anil | tho Washington Monument A design j for the memorial, the report (aya, has r.ot yet been selected. "It Is Impossible," reads the report, "to overestimate the importance of giving to a monument of the size and significance of the Lincoln memorial complete and undisputed domination over a large area, together with ??< r-. tain dignified Isolation from competing lUructures. or even from minor fc.it-. ures unrelated to It Upon no other possible site In the city of Washing-! ton can this end he secured so cotn-j pletely as upon the Potomac park' site." The commission found that a memo rial upon ttils location would not need to ho so high as to bring It Into com? petition with the Washington Monu? ment, since It would stand on a "broad plain surrounded by an amphitheatre of hills.' and would be as widely .-'oen and as Impressive as upon a hilltop. The report quotes the laU: Secretary 6l State John Hay. one of Lincoln*? secretaries and biographer, as being In favor of this sl.te. ?Lincoln." Mr. Hay Is quot-d as saying, "of all Ameri? cans next to Washington, deserves this place of honor. He was of tho Immortal. You must not approach too dose to the Immortal, His monument should stand alone, remote from the common habitation of man. opart from the business and turmoil of the City: isolated, distinguished and scroiie Of .ill the sites, this one near the Potomac is the most suited to the purpose." New Orleans, La., July 25.?The worst smash of the? season in she cot? ton market came to-day without any warning;.

August, in which all that is left of the old crop Interest is centred, lost thirty points or $1 50 a hale. The decline was caused by heave short selling, which hurdly let up for a mlr.uto during the day. Under the pressure the market gave ground steadily, and on the way down stop loss orders from those trad? ers who had gone long In anticipation of* the now long delayed reaction were constantly reached This swelled the selling. The market had next to no support, and what buying orders there were came from shorts who wanted (o realize profits The decline began In Liverpool, and that market was so much under expec? tations on the opening here that Initial prices were eight to ten points down. Without anything that looked like >a| recovery or a reaction of consequence.! prices fell until on the actual trading Ihey were thirty to forty points under yesterday's Until quotations.
