THE PENSACOL'A JOURN A'L,
MAY 14, 1921 TWO SATURDAY MORNING, . 1 t . . 1 U 1' ' ' ii Km i. -i i RALLIES FOLLOW 'OPENING DECLINE Cotton Marktt Affoctod By Roports of Increasing Labor Trouoioo in England. NEW YORK, May It. An oponlnc decline waa followed by rallies In the cotton market but late reports of In creftslns aerlous labor troubles In Engr land caused weakness. July sold off from 118.08 to 112.77 or 26 points net lower and the market closed weak at a net decline of 17 to 27 points. The opening- was barely steady at a decline of 4 to 14 points owing to a continuation of yesterday's -selling-movement. The pressure was much less active, however, suggesting- that rattered long; accounts had been pret ty well liquidated on the decline of the previous day and smaller hedge selling- from the south. This encour aged some local buying on reports of a broadening demand for cotton goods In the domestic market and more fav orabla news from the east. Opening Josses were recovered with active months selling about 3 to 8 points net higher at 112.60 for May and $13.65 for October. Trading then became very quiet and fluctuations were narrow until late in the afternoon when re ports reached here that Lancashire mill operatives had refused the reduc Hon of 30 per cent In wages and that Tirltlsh transport workers would re fuse to handle Imports of coal. This news led to liquidation by recent buy ers and local or Wall street selling which sent May off to $12.40 and Oc tober to 113.33. Last prices were ap proximately tfce lowest of the day. Ac cording to foreign trade advices re celved by a prominent local firm this morning, the business in India Is more active and there are prospects for a revival of trade with China. These advices also state that -American cot ton can be laid down at a lower price In Japan than the better grades of Kast Indian and that Japan Is likely to be a steady buyer In American mar kets. More seasonable temperatures were reported in the south but there were further, rains in the east where dry weather is needed. YALE'S RIFLE TEAM HAS FINE SEASON The yale rifle team has Just con- eluded a most remarkable season, winning 11 of the ' 12 matches shot. The one defeat was administered by (Georgetown and was by a margin of two points. And as Georgetown scored 499 out of the possible 600 one can readily see that Yale's Job In winning this match meant a perfect score. This is the first rifle team in the ' history of Yale so that the showing Is . considered quite wonderful. After the team was gathered together an effort was made to arrange matches with every collegiate rifle team. Yale liarred no one. Next year the program will be more extensive. It is hoped to shoot at least one match with every collegiate rifle team In the United States, Canada and Great Britain. j Yale did not shoot a poor match all season. They used the Winchester; Bolt action rifles and precision am munition and this combination proved superior to combinations of all others, except one. The biggest trlumpth on the Yale schedule was the win over Oxford. Oxford has been shooting the small bore rifle for many years but the scores Indicate that the English collegians are not In the same class as the Americans. In the last ten , matches the -Yale team average .9822. This Is a better average than Norwich made In winning the National Rifle Association championship for college teams last year. The high five shooters on the Yale ' team in the last ten matches aver aged better than .99, as follows: Van Cllse, .9928; Jleffleiqger, .9922; Iteddlck, 9916; Bennett, .99; Williams, .9873. It will take fine shooting' on the part of any team to beat such cores. Yale will lose only three of the 12 members of this year'a team by grad uation. Yale claims the riflo cham pionship of the college this year and ( hopes to prove that it is entitled to It next year In the league competition. Wo doubt If any college has a better . claim the championship this year than the eons of Old Elk William It. Biggs will manage the team again next year. lie halls from New York. Charles S. Parker, of Meridian, Conn, will assist him. The captain for 1923 Is J. W, Cise, Jr., of , Chicago, X1L Here are the scores of Yale's re- , markable first year rifle team and al so the scores of their opponents: Yale 982 Columbia . 955 Yale' 974 Cornell 890 Yale 982 parthmouth . 048 1 Yale 1564 Oxford . 1361 ' Yale 991 Colgate 957 .

FOUR CHARGED WITH PERJURY Continued from Page One) duced by Jemlgan as evidence to fix the responsibility on Wang. Jemlgan admitted that the 'dollars', and other mateVlals exhibited by the rovernment .had been found at his home, but claimed that they were de livered to him the night before the raid and arrest by Ed Wang, a gov ernment witness, who accompanied Sheriff Sutton to Jernlgan's home when the arrest was made.
