Contract Cotton Lost Heavily on Yesterday- The cotton market continued yester day its seemingly endless hunt for the bottom, if there is such a thing as the bottom to it. Instead of improving a bit, as those who don’t know a thing about the mar ket predicted, it again spread its wings and sailed merrily down the flame towards chaos. Then everybody declared that was just what they really expected. But ten to one their money was bet the other way, if they had any left from the recent landside. It is generally on the wrong side. After the phenomenal break of 118 points, from 10.18 to 9 00, it was hoped yesterday that the old “king” would sober up a bit and climb back upon his high pedastal. Vain hope; iu fact, no hope. Instead of doing better the contract I market once more hit the greased track and started towards the mudsills of ob livion faster than a candidate can make promises. January showed the black record of twenty-six points lost in a day. From 9.04, the closing figures of the day before, it tumbled yesterday to 8.78, the lowest point reached in more than two months. This disheartened the local trade and the market was featureless the balance of the day. Some cotton sold around 8$ cents, the best price now offered. The big break yesterday was attrib uted to the “estimate” of a Texas paper, placing the crop of that state at 3,100,000 bales. APPEALED TO HIGHEST COURT. Case of Railroad Commission Vs. Ex press Company. Atlanta, Oct. 24.—Attorney General ’ Terrell received a telegram this morn ing from the clerk of the United Statrs Supreme court, stating that the court had sanctioned the appeal for certiorari in the case of the Georgia Railroad Commission, vs. the Southern Express Company This means that the court will hear argument in the case and also that there is a sufficient ground for ap peal. The case will be taken up some time next week, and Attorney General Terrell will again appear before the court to argue the points made in the United States court and in Circuit Court of Appeals. The case involves the right of the Southern Express Company to make the sender of an ex press package pay for the revenue , stamp which is placed upon the re ceipts issued by the company. The case is an important one, and the final decision means much for the express company. A Lite and Death Fight. Mr. W. A, Hines of Manchester, la., writing of his almost miraculous escape from death, says: “Exposure after measles induced serious lung trouble, which ended in Consumption. I had frequent hemorrhages and coughed nignt and day. All my doctors said I must soon die. Then I began to use Dr. King’s New Discovery for Consumption, which completely cured me. I would not be without it even if it cost $5.00 a bottle. Hundreds have used it on my recom mendation and all say it never falls to cure throat, chest and lung Troubles.” Regular size 500 and sl.
