COTTON BILLS GOOD
UNTIL DECEMBER 31
ENGLISH BROKERS EXTEND TIME
FOR ACCEPTING PRESENT
BILLS OF LADING.
AMERICAN BANKERS WIN
Further Conferences Will Be Held to
Perfect Plan fcr Guaranteeing
Cotton Bills of Lading.
Now York. An extension from Oc
tober I!l to December 31 of the peri
od iluring which American cotton bills
ot lading wili be accepted in current
terms by foreign banks, was announc
ed here by Sir Kdwanl H, Hidden, the
Knlish broker, who came to this
country for tile British and continen
tal interests.
This course was recommended to
the foreign bankers by sir Edward,
and. Following the receipt of cable ad
vices from London authorizing him to
act, he issued a formal statement.
This is the lirst fruit of a series of
conferences Sir Edward has held here
during the last week.
The favor with which the plan to
have lulls of lading guaranteed or in
sured has been received by interior
bankers of this countrj Justified Sir
Edward, he said, in urging an ex
tension of the status quo as probably
two months would be required to per
fect the project. In granting this ex
tension the English bankers reserve
the right to renew conferences with
the American financiers to devise an
other scheme for safeguarding bills of
lading in event the guaranty plan
proA es impracticable,
The British bankers refused to add
a word to his statement or explain the
couti in plated plan of protecting bills
of lading in detail
PLAN FOR RAISING MAINE.
Spain
Is to Be Shown How
the
Maine Was Wrecked.
Boverly, Mass. President Taft
linally approved plans for raising the
wreck ol the battleship Maine from
Havana harbor, which call for the
completion of the work on or before
the thirteenth anniversary of the de
struction of the war vessel, February
15, next. The work is to be done
according to plans made by army en
gineers, and is to be under the di
rection ol an engineer officer.
President Taft said that the para
mount question in the raising of the
Maine is the determining for all time
of the cause of the explosion and
whether the source of desti action
was from the outside or inside the
vessel. For this reason he desires
that the work shall be retained in
the hands of the army engineers and
not let out by contract.
By direction of the President, Spain
has been invited to send a representa
tive to Havana to be present during
the work of exposing and removing
the wreck.

champion middleweight pugilist of the
world, died here aa a result of being
shot by Walter A Hurtz. The shoot
ing took place on the ranch of R. H.
Picket-son, a friend of Ketchel's, near
Conway, 40 miles east of here. The
trouble between Ketchel and Hurtz is
said to have started when the pugilist
upbraided the ranchhand for beating
a horse. This so angered Hurtz that
he procured a rifle and shot the fight
tr in the back; $5,000 reward has
been offered for Hurtz, dead or alive.
