NEW YORK COTTON.
New York, Oct. 18. A renewal of
heavy realizing caused some irregu
larity at the opening of. the cotton
market today. October was 5 points
lower, with other months 6 to lb
points higher, and the active posi
tions sold about 1 to 4 points under
last night's closing figures during the
first few minutes with December
touching 27.25 and January 26-89.
The prospects for another cold wave
in the Western belt were more clear
ly defined than yesterday, however
and the market soon turned firmer
on covering and trade buying. Liv
erpool was an active buyer on the
advance which carried December up
to 27.45 and January to 27.09, or
about 16 to 19 points net higher be
fore the end of the first hour.
After selling at 27.60 for December
and 27.22 for January, or 29 to 34
fjoints net higher, the market became
ess active and there were reactions
of 10 to 12 points around midday.
It was reported that a private cable
has been received from Milan. Italy,
claiming that the Italian government
has arranged to take 70,000 bales of
American cotton monthly.
Cotton closed steady.

SUGAR STOCKS SHORT.
New York, Oct. 18. With the
market practically bare of Cuban
canesugar, the new beet crcp not
available here before December, half
of the big refineries shut down and
the others running only half time,
New York is facing the most serious
sugar famine in its history. Some
stores have stopped selling sugar al
together and others are limiting the
amount purchased by each customer.
Prices as high as 12 cents a pound
retail are quoted.
Raw sugar brokers said today that
only about 25,000 tons of old crop
sugar remained in Cuba and this id
held mostly by speculators who paid
high prices for it, and refuse to sell.
There are ten thousand tons owned
by neutrals in warehouses here, on
which no license to export can be ob
tained and it is thought that this may
be taken over to . help out the short
age in France. Louisiana is expected
to supply about 25,000 tons of raw
but this will not be available here fol

Lutherans Prepare For
A Great Celebration
New York, Oct. 18. Lutheran con
gregations and other branches of
the reformed church throughout the
world are completing plans for the
celebrations to be held at the end of
this month in honor of the quadri
centennial of the great historical
event, when the German monk, .Mar
tin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the
chapel at Wittenberg and thus be
gan his fight for the Reformation.
Elaborate festivals in celebration
of the anniversary are being ar
ranged in neatly all of the larger
cities of America. While the young
people's societies, leagues and educa
tional institutions of the Lutheran
church will take the leading part in
the observances, the churches of
other denominations are co-operating
in the plans.
, If the world wasn't enzajred in war
large pilgrimages representing almost
every country probably would havs
been directed to the famous places in
Germany connected with the life and
deeds of Martin Luther.
Martin Luther was born at Eisle
ben, on the border of the' Harz dis
trict of Saxony, in 1483. His pa
rents were poor, his father a miner
At about 14 he was sent to school at
Erfurt. Here, as at Eisenach,
where he had been previously, he
maintained himself by singing carols
under the windows of the townspeo
ple. His general education finished, he
yielded to his father's wish and be
gan the study of law. But after only
a few weeks of study he suddenly
threw it all up to his father's great
consternation and went into a mon
astery. His new life among the Augustin
ian monks was in extreme contrast
to his free and intellectual university
life. Finally he was summoned by
his superiors to a more busy and
useful life as teacher in logic and
ethics at the University of Witten
berg. It was from this Wittenberg
pulpit that he began his arduous fight
against many of the traditional cus
toms of the church and finally
against the pope himself.
On Oct. 31, according to an old
custom to celebrate the church anni
versaries by theological debates, he
nailed to the church door 95 theses
against sale of indulgences, in order
to give notice of his proposed dispu
tation. Luther did not realize at first

what mighty forces he released when
he began his ppptjijtion to the church.
He regarded himself as a loyal son
of the church and hoped for a recon
ciliation with the pontiff. But the
first step once taken, the road be
came wider and wider.
The final break with Rome was in
evitable. In 1520 the pontiff took
the decisive step to send Luther a
papal bull, which condemned Luther's
writings and announced his excom
munication if he did not repent and
recant after 60 days. As an answer
Luther burned the papal bull as well
as the canon law, which taught the
supremacy of the pope-
The following year Luther was
summoned to appear before the Em
peror Charles V. at Worms. Luther
appeared before the famous diet of
Worms firm and collected. Mani
festations of approval shouted from
the housetops apprised him that tho
hearts of the German people were
with him. After reaffirming his
doctrines contained in his theses, he
folded his hands and looking to
Heaven exclaimed: "Here I stand; I
can do no other. God help me!"
The only apparent result of the con
ference was that another papal bull
was issued and Luther's writings
were burned in the market place. His
hold upon the people was undoubted
From this time on Luther worked
incessantly. Besides his labors in
the university at Wittenberg, he
preached and wrote many polemical
and expository works. One of his
greatest achievements was a careful
and scholarly translation of the
Bible. He died at Eisleben, the town
of his birth, in 1546, and was buried
in front of the pulpit in the Castle
Church at WiWttenberg.

IN f IB DESCRIBED
BY WM. REDMOND
BT ASSOCIATED PRESS
Dublin. Oct. 18. A series of vivid
pen pictures of the life of Irish sol
diers in France, written by the late
Major William Redmond, the distin
guished Irish leader, shortly before
his death at the front, have been col
lected - by Mrs. Redmond, and are to
be published shortly in the form of
a small memorial volume. Extracts
from some of the most striking of
these letters have been put at the
disposal of The Associated Press.
One of Major Redmond's letters
deals with the capture of Ginchy by
the Irish troops. "A notable feature
of the charge at Ginchy," he says,
"was that the Irishmen sang Irish
patriotic songs, one battalion . to the
other, as they charged, and the effect
created was most inspiring." The
scene after the battle he describes as
"The Germans surrendered very
freely, and in very few instances
waited for the bayonets of the Irish.
When able, the enemy made good his
retreat, but when this was not possi
ble, he surrendered and threw down
his arms. In some cases, however,
treachery was attempted.
"I met a Munster Fusilier who in
the confusion of the battle had got
separated from his battalion. He
was resting by the road waiting to
find some one who could direct him
to his headquarters. He was cov
ered with mud, but full of genuine
"I asked if his battalion had made
many prisoners. He replied 'es,'
but added that once or twice the
Germans had tried treacherous tricks.
Une party advanced as if to surren
der, shouting "Kamerad! Kamerad'
and when about twenty yards off
opened fire. I asked the Munster
man what then took place, and. he re
plied, 'We knocked them over till
"One prisoner said, 'We do not
want war it is the war of the rich
man, and the poor always suffer.'
"Nearly all the Irish possessed
some trophies of the fight, and it
was a common sight to see even the
wounded on the stretchers clutching
in their hands German helmets and
bits of enemy equipment.
"Many of our wounded were . just
bays, and it was extraordinary how
they bore pain which must have been
intense. Very few murmurings were
heard. One young man said to "the
chaplain, 'Oh, Father, it is hard to
die so far from home in the wilds oi
France!' Certainly the fair land of
France just here did seem wild the
trees all torn and riven with snot and
the earth on every side plougned
with huge 6hell holes.
"The Irishmen, while clearly im
mensely pleased with themselves,
showed no undue exaltation, and
their demeanor towards their cap
tives was good-humored and even
kind. It was pleasant to sep how
tenderly they helped the wounded
Germans along, and down the road
from the dressing station it was a
common sight to see our men helping 1
along prisoners just as kindly as if
thev were their own comrades.
"The losses in the Irish battalions
were naturally heavy, but by no
means very great in view of the work
that had been done.
"It is not too much to say that the
whole army has expressed warm ad
miration for the action of the Irish
troops; and the capture of Ginchy,
coming hot-foot on the taking of Guil
lemont, has put, it is safe to say. an
entirely new complexion on the whole
position in this part of the. line.
"A captured German officer de
clared that his people had believed
that Ginchy could not be taken. 'But,
he added, 'you attacked us with devils,
not men no one could withstand
