In part the letter of the attorney gen

We therefore hold that the sixteen

possession of the Alamo to the fac

headed by Mrs Rebecca J Fischer
The only recourse left for Miss de
Zavala is to file a motion for rehear

case for a motion of this character to
bo overruled Should a motion for re
hearing be filed the superintendent of
public buildings and grounds who is
now holding the Alamo in trust pend

over its possession must wait until

UNDERWEAR IS HIGHER
TwentyFive Per Cent Advance Added
By Manufacturers
Philadelphia Pa Jan 19 With the
price of cotton hosiery and underwear
already 50 per cent higher than it was
a year ago the manufacturers of the
country have decided to add another
25 per cent in order that as they say
they may get some profit out of the
business Not only does the 50 per
cent increase apply to these two tex
tile products but it will apply to cot
ton goods of all sorts
A gentlemens agreement to make
these advances effective was put
through last night in New York at a
conference between representatives of
the National Association of Hosiery
and Underwear Manufacturers and
the Wholesale Dry Goods Association

SEVERELY CENSURED
New Orleans Cotton Exchange Presi
dent Sounds Bugle Call
New Orleans La Jan 19 Apropos
of the socalled bear raid in the New
York cotton market President W B
Thompson of the New Orleans Cotton
Exchange issued a signed statement
tonight in which he says
If there was ever a time when the
cotton producer and the holder of spot
cotton should make a stand that time
is the present We have recently
passed through one of the most try
ing and unwarranted declines in the
history of the cotton trade Spot cot
ton is intrinsically worth little If any
less than it was two weeks ago yet
in the meantime through the manipu
lation of a few bear operators in the
New York market the entire cotton
trade has been for the time demoral
ized
Let it be understood that the
slump in the contract market has not
affected the intrinsic value of cotton
The law of supply and demand deter
mines this value The New York raid
is not a legitimate incident of the cot
ton trade either in spots or futures
It represents the efforts of a few men
with much money to gain their pur
pose by a guerrila attack It is as if
a man or set of men for the sake of
gratifying a personal grudge and of
reaping a personal profit should en
deavor to stampede the occupants of
a crowded building by the cry of
Fire The issue is a large one It
comprehends more than the interests
of the bull and bear operators in cot
ton It raises the question as to
whether a few manipulators shall de
moralize a great trade system and go
unpunished therefor It affects the
best interests of not only the spot
market but the future market as
v
well The most powerful agent of
retribution is within the control of
the farmer and spot holder If they
will use it
