In the spot de partment middling lost 50 points in the net results, closing at 11.00. Xhe political situation In Europe was the main factor against values and it was the cause of small declines on the closing session.

This was. the first official In formation to be had on the subject Wnd it disclosed the more unfavorable tate of affairs than generally expect ed. , Figures from seven states showed an average decrease of 65.39 per cent In sales, compared with sales to the same date last' year. The total of sales was 524,959 tons against 1,805, 773.

This week the market, according to all indications, will be obliged to fol low political maneuvers abroad very closely. v Aside from politics the trade will .watch tho weather over the belt more closely, for considerable cotton is be ing planted in the earlier eectlons of Texas and preparations for planting are being pushed in more southern I portions of other states. Favorable weather might work against values In a mild way but rains would delay work end have the opposite effect on values. FURTHER DETAILS WOOLSEY SINKING (By The Associated Press.) SAN 1UEOO.

Steps to clear up one of the largest mail robberies pf recent years will be con sidered by the grand Jury that meets here tomorow. It involves principally Guy Kyle, of Mt. Vernon, 111., formerly a minister, in whose home $100,000 in cash was found and who confessed. Another lot of $85,000, mostly cash, was found stuffed in auto parts and other places in a garage in Mt. Ver non Jointly owned by Mr. Kyle and Loren Williamson. Williamson has de nied any connection with the robbery- Beyond admitting that he partici pated in the robbery, Mr. Kyle has re fused information for publication. There have been stories that a band of expert robbers was involved and others that Kyle was alone. Mr. Kylo formerly was a minister in the Free Methodist church. His connection with that church was sev ered in 1918. The Rev. G. W. Griffith, of Chicago, who presided as acting bishop over the Central Illinois con ference at which the severance took place, said that Mr. Kyle was present and requested a certificate of stand ing. On, investigation it was found that Mr. Kyle already had united with another church and that his creden tials had been recognized by that other church. In view of the fact that Mr. Kyle had taken this step while still posing as a minister of the Free Methodisf church, Rev. Griffith said his request for a certificate was de nied, an 1 by vote of the conference he was declared withdrawn from tha conference and tho church. CHURCHES OF U. S. GAIN IN MEMBERS . ! (By The Associated Press). NEW YORK, March 6. Churches of the United States made a net grain of 607,000 new members in 1920. according to a census compiled by the Christian Herald, made public today. Dr. H. K. Carroll., of Flanfleld, N. J., who gathered the statistics, said this was a marked increase over 1S19, when the aggregate number of members gained was less than 44,000. Dr. Carroll said in 1913 decreases were shown in the most of the churches. He compared figures of some of the larger groups showing that in 1919 the Metho dist group lost 75,951; Presbyterian group lost 46,459, and the Eapyst group lost 11,108. In 1920, these groups gained re spectively 237,127; 43.031 and 129,283. The three large Baptist bodies, he said, have not yet completed their statistics and it Is believed that the actual figures will show a gain of more than 129,000 in the year. Baptisms in the Southern Baptist have reached the unprecented figures of 165,000 with churches, yet to be heard from. The Roman Catholic church showed a somewhat smaller increase in 1920 of 127,579. Doubtless when immigration sets in again, it was pointed out, the " in crease will be greater. The city of Venice has been decorat ed with the French Croix de Guerre. 'Look Happy and Talk Cross."
