April 29.—The federal government hurled a bomb shell into the cotton market to day by serving subpoenas on half a dozen prominent members of the New York exchange to appear before the grand jury. The presence of these men is demanded “to testify general ly and give evidence in the action be tween the United States as com plainant and Frank B. Hayne and William P. Brown of New Orleans and others, and to produce records and papers as follows: "The original or copy of an agree ment made Feb. 26, 1910, by Hayne, Brown and others and other parties who did thereafter subscribe to an agreement by which it was provided among other things that the parties of the first and second partB should each purchase 150,000 bales of cot ton for delivery during the months of March to July 1910, at certain prices and under certain conditions named in tne agreement. The “others” in the case are be **•-*"•* tu Vnjrpnp O. t\%A Texas plunger who lost $2,000,000 and more In the January decline, and James a. Fatten of Chicago, who Is said to have the greater part of a fortune of $10,000,000 locked up in , the May and July options. One surprising feature of the in 'vestigation is tnat the men under subpoena are members of “spot” firms or handlers of real cotton, and as such are on the opposite side of the market from the Brown and Hayne party. Among those reported to be subpoenaed are: Richard A. Springs of Richard A. Springs & Co.; Edward Moyse of Ed ward Moyse & Co.; Norris Sellar of Dick Bros <v c,o.;E. W. Weld of S. M. Weld & Co.; David H. Miller, Wil liam R. Craig of Craig & Jenks and J. Temple Gwathmey of George H. McFadden & Bros.; Nathaniel M. Car penter of Carpenter, Baggott & Co., ana J. s. name of J. s. Da«h. & Co. None of these men was willing to admit that he knew of the alieged ■ agreement of Feb. 26 as specified in ' the subpoeuas. There was much talk of the government’s action point I ing to a thorough probing of the “bull pool” which dates back about a year or more. Whatever agreement was entered into on eb. 26 as specified, follow ed the acceptance by Messrs. Brown and Hayne of all notices for March JpItvPK of cot toil. The spot hrmti which needed cotton for their cus tomers amollg the Southern and New England mills had effected a break of a cent a pound or more, and were expecting that the unfortunate ‘•long" being unabie to advance ad ditional margins would add to the display by throwing their holdings on the market. Instead announce ment was served on all the exchange i.rms that Brown and Hayne would accept all the cotton tendered for de livery in March. There were nearly 100,000 bales In the local stock and the bulls assumed ownership of fully two-thirds of these. They began shipping cotton immediately to Liverpool. The result in this mark et was that the May and July options advanced before the shorts repre sented by the spot firms could cover. They have been unable to cover since.
