SIX THE PENSACOLA JOURNAU FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 18. 1918. ) I THE MARKETS NEW ORLEANS COTTON. New Orleans, Jan. 17. A break of 5 to 6 dollalrs a bale on cotton preet'd the holiday order of tae gov ernment when the market opened to ri v All r-.ther factors faded before these new developments. . , In the j first hour of business prices ieu vj to 117 points on 'the most active months under heavy liquidation and selling for short account, inspired 1' the belief that the closing of mills would greatly curtail consumption. Early shorts took their profits and new buyinjr for long account came in at the decline and checked it. The market was also helped by reports of a better demand for the lower grades of spots. No wide prices changes occurred in the afternoon. At 1 o'clock the active: months were at a net loss of LG to 59 points. The market closed steady at a net decline of 67 to 87 points. High. Low.

As a result of the action of the fuel administra tor, cotton had a violent and semi demoralizezd opening today with first prices from 53 to 57 points " lower. March contracts on the call were even lower, selling at 29 cents, or a drop of 202 points, exceeding ' $10 per bale. January sold at 30 cents, a break of 137 points Late positions opened from 35 to 85 points lower. . The excessive weakness in near positions was due to the execution of a large number of stop orders which were not present in the later months. It was feared the holiday period ordered would have a drastic : effect upon the market. January contracts sold down to 30 cents and March to 29 cents on the first call. It was feared that the 1 'holiday orders would mean a heav. decline in consumption by the New England mills- Almost as rapidly as it broke, the . market had a later rally which car ried prices from 35 to 150 points abovo the lowest . level with March shewing the greatest advance on sales Kick to 30.50. May rallied from - 29.50 to 30.15 and at the end of the first half hour the market was only about 50 points . under the precious . nifrht. There was heavy covering by some big shorts, together with New Orleans and Southern buying and a bior demand from the trade and Liv erpool. Southern advices indicated that holders of spots were not af fected by the temporary break in futures. Late forenoon wires from the South Southern mills influenced by the firmness bf hoi lers, - had been larp-e buyers of contracts on the early break. This with continued trade buying from other quarters kept the market very steady around midday, at which time prices were 37 , to 43 points ret lower with March selling at 30.59; May 30.22 and July 29.93. Much of the excitement at tending the opening of the market had disappeared and it seemed to be come more settled with a disposition to take a calmer view of the fuel situation. Increasing pressure of . tha after noon caused covering and the market sold off from 30 points from the top with March trading at 30.30 and May 29.9C A steady demand from trade interests however absorbed the offerings fairly well and prevented any Teturn of the demoralization which, was noted in the first hour.

The Zep pelin bogey has been laid or, at least, the major part of it3 terrors have vanished, since reliable information shows the reported existence in Ger many of great armadas of these aer- iial dreadnaughts to have been ab solutely mythical. Altogether only just over one hundred of these dirig ibles have been constructed since the late Count Zeppelin launched the first one over Lake Constance- Up to August, 1914, the total of those built had numbered twenty five; since hostilities began the two great works at Friedrichshafen and Staaken have constructed between seventy-five and eighty, probably nearer the lower than the higher figure. This means ag, average of two. per month. As the mean cilitate the movement of corn to market Opening- prices, which ranged from unchanged figures to 3-8c lower with January 1.27 1-2 and May 1.24 1-8 to .1-4, were followed by a little reaction in some cases. Oats were governed by. the same conditions as corn. Higher prices on hogs gave firm ness to provisions. BREAK IN COTTON. New York, Jan. 17- The drastic action of the fuel administration caused a serious break n the cotton market at the opening hour today. The decline ranged frcri 11-2 to 2 cents, a pound, equal to $10 a bale. The early break in cotton was fol lowed quickly by a vigorous rally which carried March contracts from 29 cents to 30-40 recovering the in itial loss. Officials of the cotton exchange said that closing the exchange under the fuel administrator's order would not be considered unless Governor Whitman should declare a legal hol iday on each Monday. NEW ORLEANS LOOSER. New Orleans, Jan. 17. The price of cotton broke $5 to $6 a bale on the opening today in the efforts of trad ers to adjust themselves to the holi day order from the government. Holders of long contracts were heavy sellers because they feared greatly curtailed consumption as the result of the closing down of mills. In the early trading in the contract market, prices lost 99 to 117 points. NOTHR THING a mmr.&x iteff H period for the building of a Zeppelin is known with certainty to be two months, there must always have been four new airships on the stocks at the same time. , Most of the Zeppelins" launched into the air before the war came to grief, thus leaving in the service of the German army and navy a fleet of less than a dozen when fighting be gan. Since then nearly all the dir igibles old and new have been handed over to the German navy, which has used them for mariy kinds of work, such as bombarding expeditions, pro tection Of mine-layers and small torpedo-boats at sea, chasing submarines searching for mine-fields, and, last and most important reconnoitering for the High Seas fleet. Disaster has attended the flight of an overwhelming majority of these air monsters, no fewer than thirty of which are known to have been de stroyed in one way or another, as is shown by the following list: L. 1 Destroyed just before the war, when it fell in the North Sea near Heligoland.

No information is obtainable as to the fate of the remainder of the Zep pelins, nor as to whether their con struction was ever , completed, but the few other, types of dirigible air ships used by the Germans have not been better served by fate than their more renowned sisters.

CONVICTS A special from 1 Mantgomery, Ala., eays: Governor Henderson 'ha an nounced that plans have been worked out whereby ptate convicts will work one-half day extra Saturday arternoon and evening, another half-day Sunday afternoon and evening: in the coal minel, and thus do their part toward relieving: the coal shortage. Final plans completed Wednesday and the con- ' victs will begin the extra work Satur day afternoon. It is believed the coal situation would be relieved for thia state if all coal mined durlngr the extra day could be diverted to Alabama points. Instead of leaving: the coal mines when their tasks are completed Satur day afternoon, the miners will continue their work until they have completed one-half day extra. After weekly re pairs, ae made to the mines Sunday, the men .will return-and work until another half-day has been done. They will be paid the market price for ev ery ton of coal produced above their tasks. v . ' JOHN WRITE & CO. LOUISVILLE. KY.
