Speaking of thc proposed elimina-< tion of Liverpool interests from tho cotton trade, tho Cotton Factory Times says: "Cotton planters lu America have ni read y considered the necessity for the careful grading which Liver pool dealers have afforded. Speaking of the proposed elimina tion of Liverpool interests from the cotton trade, the Cotton Factory Times says: "Cotton planters in America have already considered tho necessity of protecting themselves against tho Liverpool interests, and it is reported that they have decided that no cotton shall- ho planted next year. This is of course meant an a warnlug that if their stocks of materials are not taken off their hands now a greatly enhanc ed price will bo charged for It later on. "Opinions may differ as to whether Bomo of the present dislocation of trade could not be avoided, but it is dally becoming more clear that there are too many conflicting interests at work In the business, which makes lt vrry difficult for trade to move, and thoso interests seem bent on blaming each other for some portion of the present unsatisfactory situation." Thomas Tem per ly, of Holton, In a letter on thc plight of the cotton trade, charges that "Liverpool cotton lords" are supported by English banks in keeping the Liverpool cotton market closed and preventing mills from get ting the supply of raw cotton they need. This is much the same position taken by Gordon Harvey, a member of 1 Parliament, who charged that Liver pool interests maintain an artificial cotton market and even when the Liv erpool market is open-do not permit trading unless prices ..arc in their favor. ?Direct importation . of cotton to Manchester by the manufacturera who requiro it is urged by Mr. Temperly.

Steps Are Being Taken to Round Up German Cruisers These Cruisers Include the Eniden, which Has Sunk or Captured Twenty British Vessels, and Karlsruhe, Which Has Taken Thirteen British Ships in the Atlantic. (Dy Associated Press.) LONDON. Oct. 23. (7 p. m.)-The ad miralty tonight Issued a statement outlining steps that aro being tuleen to round up the eight or nine German cruisers at largo ia the. Atlantic, Pa cific and Indian oce?ns. These crui sers include tho Emden, which has sunk or captured twenty British ves sels to dato in thc Indian ocean, the Kar Urta ruc, which has taken thirteen British ships in the Atlantic. The statement says: . "Searching for these vessels . and working in concert under various commanders in chief aro upwards of seventy British, Austrian, Japanese, French and Russian Cruisers. Among these are a number of fastest British cruisers. "The vast expanse of seas and oce ans and thousands pf islands offer almost ., infinito choice of movement .to the enemy s ships. Despite ovcry ef fort to cut "off their coal supply it has been maintained. In the face of in creasing difficulty, tho discovery and destruction of these cruisers large ly is ? matter of time, patience and good luck. "Our commanders so far have been occupied in a serious and important convoy duty but this work has lessen ed and the' numberoaf 'Beaching cruis ers ia being augmented, . Meanwhile j merchant ships must observe- the ad miraity lnsturctlona- which it lo obvi ously impossible to Bpeclfy. and use all precautions. which havo been sug gested. On routes where these instruc tiouB/bave been followed they have so far proved very effective. On the oth er hand, where they, have been dis regarded, captures have been. made. The samo vastness Df the sea which h?s so far enabled the German cruis ers to avoid capture will protect trade. "The only other alternative to the methods now adopted would be tho i marshaling of merchantmen In regu lar convoys at^tatcd.intervals. So far it has hot been .thought necessary to hamper trade by enforcing ?uch a cy c tc Tn. "Tho percentage of loss is much less than vms reckoned on before the war. Of our 4,000 British ships engaged In [foreign trade, only 30 have. been, sunk by tho ncmy or less than one per cent in all. lie aides seven vessels are now Overdue in Atlantic waters, v."The. rate of. J*?5?i?*nce for <m*gnnp which at the wutbreak of war was~fix cd at five per cent,'has been reduced ['to.-two g?incas per.cent. . I "Between 8,000 and 9,000 foreign voyages! have, been undertaken to and ? from ..United Kingdom ports, less than rflv? per thousand; bf which have been , caused by merchant .vessels taking [everything for granted and proceed ing without precautions, as if there, [wore no war. 'On-the" other-hand.. German over^ [s&'ftttder virtually has ceased to en list. Nearly all their faBt ?hips, which ' could .hove been used : tv . auxiliary cruiaero Wore /penned ?: i neutral harbors or took refuge in their own. Among the comparatively few German ships which have put to 133 havo been captured or. nearly four times the number of (hose lost by the very large British mercantile marine. "In these ci remus tances there is no occasion for anxiety and no excuso for complaint. Tho more fully tho facts concerning our over-sea trade and its protection by the royal navy can be disclosed and the more attentively they are studied the greater will bo the coUfidcnco and satisfaction with which (the situation can bo viewed." Confines Activities. NEW YORK, Oct. 23.-A cable to tho United States and Brazil Steam ship Company today confirmed in part recent activities of the German crui ser Karlsruhe, said to have destroyed thirteen British merchantmen In-At lantic waters. The cable was from Captain Pilcher, of tbe British steam ship Indrani, which left New York September 1, calling at Norfolk, where she took on 7,000. tons of coal for Rio Janerb. Captain Piloherl informed the Unit ed StateB and Brazil line, to which thc vessel was under charter, that tho Indrani waa sunk by tho Karls ruhe off the Barbadoca. ; The captain's messago sahl tho Ger man cruiser,.transferred several hithT drcd tons of tu'el to its own buuKera, took off tho Britishers crew, then sent tho Gteamer to tho bottom with a few well directed .-ahots. - The Indrani was of 3,456 gross ton - nage, ballt in Glasgow in 1S8 and was owned by Donaldson Bros., of ' Glas gow! .
