C«tton Market
NEW YORK, Dec. 9.— E. F. Hotton & Co.'a
wire says: *
"Liverpool was bought and bid np this morn-
Ing by Weld & Co., who. It seems, expected the
census report to confirm their figures oa the gin
ning to December 1 of 11.563,000 bales. The
local market opened about 20 points higher, in
sympathy with the cable, but was immediately
cold by leading Philadelphia spot Interests and
I others on the government report showing 11.
--1 844,000 bales had. passed through the gins to
I December 1. While tbfe report was not quite ac j
large as the extreme estimates put out last week ,
by the Glnners' association, they were larger
than any of the other private estimates and con- i
frequently nearer to the national giuners' figures ]
than traders had expected. The amount of cot-
I ton ginned this year between November 14 and
December 1 was the largest on record, and, while ,
bnlls contend that the largest percentage of the •
crop ever ginned to this date is included in this ;
report. It must be remembered that this con
tenttoa was also made when the last report was
made on November 21. When the final ginners
report is published on the 20th of next March
we believe it will show the usual average gin
ning after this date for the last fire year*,
which, en the basis of today's report, indicates
i a crop of about 14,300,000 bales, including lint

NEW YORK, Dec. 9.— E. IV Hotton k. Co.'s
wire saye.
"Underlying conditions showed little or no
change and business was of a professional char
acter. Outside interest was lacking and tbe
market was again iv a waiting position, with
sentiment inclined to lean a little to the bear
side, owing to the continued dullness in the spot
position rfnd further Indications that Brazil is
anxious to make sales. Cost and freight offers.
while comparatively light, were unchanged to 5
points lower, and as both the Rio and Santos
markets were weak and unchanged, it was ap
parent that the better feeling abroad was due
to local conditions rather than to any change ia
the primary situation."

Without It Exhibition Build
ings Could Not Be
Properly Erected
President Charles C. Moore, of the
Exposition company, has issued a let
ter requesting all persons interested
in the success of the great fair to vote
for charter amendment No. 2. Follow
ing is a copy of the statement prepared
by President Moore:
Charter Amendment No. 2 is an
exposition measure and of interest to
every one in San Francisco. Its adop
tion will not add one dollar to the
taxes of the people, nor call for the
expenditure of a single penny of public
The substance of the proposed
amendment is in the following words:
"The board of supervisors shall pass
ordinances * ♦ * necessary, proper
or expedient for the safety, conveni
ence and welfare of the public within
• • • the Panama-Pacific interna
tional exposition.
Under the proposed amendment the
board of supervisors may pass a build
ing law directing the manner of erec
tion of the exposition palaces and other
buildings used temporarily for exposi
tion purposes.
It must be apparent to the most
casual observer that to require a
Rhenish castle, a French chateau, a
Swiss chalet, a Chinese pagoda, a Jap
anese bridge, a Hawaiian grass hut or
a Zuni Indian adobe, to be built under
the requirements of the San Francisco
building law now in force, would lead
to absurd results.
Every one knows that an exposition
must be especially built for temporary
use, and the only purpose of thife
amendment is to put into the hands of
the board of supervisors the power to
enact such ordinances as will properly
protect the public and enable the expo
sition to be built.
Every person interested in the suc
cess of the exposition should vote for
charter amendment No. 2. r

Esquimalt, B. C, Pastor Be
lieves in Preparing for
War in Time of Peace
"I preach the word of God, but while
I am doing it I preach to Canadians
the need of a great Canadian navy for
the protection of their hundreds of
miles of Pacific coast, at present as
defeneelerss as a new born babe. On
this subject I dwell first, last and all
the time." *
So spoke Rev. W. Baugh Allen, pas
tor of the "farthest west" Episcopal
church on the American continent, at
the Palace hotel yesterday. Allen's
parish is at Esquimau, near Victoria,
B. C. He has a mixed congregation
of natives and soldiers from the royal
naval station located at that post, and
believes in preparing for war in times
of peace.
"Canada believes that Uncle Sam
would never allow an invasion of her
territory," eaid the pastor, who at
tracted much attention t>y hia broad
brimmed hat and clerical vestments;
"but I have my doubts. Canada ex
plains that at present England and
Japan are friendly. How about the
time when the two nations might he
at dagger points? Then the Canadian
Pacific coast would have to depend on
the British navy for protection and
the British navy Is some distance
"I have spent many years in mis
sionary work, but I never neglect an
opportunity of urging Canada to be
gin the nucleus of a great navy,
which would, of course, be under the
authority of the home government,
but at the same time would have sta
tions in Canadian waters.
"This subject is deare»t to my
heart, and I believe that some day
Canada will rank high in naval power
on the seas."
Allen is here to see the departure
of his eon, C. B. Baugh Allen, on a
tour to Australia and New Zealand.
Young Allen sails Wednesday on the
