Cables Reflect Better Feeling Great Britain, and S.ome Optimism This Side. Friday Afternoon, Sept. 1" For some reason there was sn Im proved tons In the cotton market to day, although changea In quotations run hit-fly In the nearby positions. Those friendly to values mane them selves believe that on of the causes for the Improvement was a more ac tive demand for finished goods, although others were of the opinion thet the technical condition of the market ac counted for it. Early there cam cables saying that She strik situation looked better, but later one came to the ef. feet that It appeared worse than ever. On this side reports of enlarged demand for goods were accompanied by fur ther reductions In quotations. KVotn the spot department came reports of larger business in the actual, but the weekly statistics were bearish. All In all. the market wan just a shade stronger and resistance to lower ijvels asserting Itself. At the close the list In New Vork was stesdv and 73 to 10 points to the good, while In New Orleans it was steady und I to IS up. October shorts were covering freely In the Northern center. Uverpool was due a few 1-olnts to the had. but instead finished steady and 35 to 6 points up, near positions being steadfast. Apparently the labor situa tion news was an early factor, but trade accounts were still mixed. The Msnchrner official cable raid that .1 more cheerful feeling prevailed In cloths, while demand for yarns was Im proving, but private advices said little was doing. For the day sales of spots were but 4.000 bales, including a, 700 American, and fully middling was down 10 points to .1.43d. Nothing was re ceived. At the opening of the donustlc mar kels a more optimistic feeling prevailed. The weather In the belt was fairly good, although somo few scattered showers were reonricd to add to the concern of the shorts. la th stock o... ness was the ruling tone, while the cables from Liverpool were favorable. There came some favorable advices from domestic mill and goods circles, all of which enabled the bulls to shove values up a little, led by October, which is naturally quite strong In view of th small stock in New York and the rela tive scarcity of good grade new cotton. The option opened at L'MO, dipped to 2.!.- and then shot up to 2I.0, later reacting to around the opening. De cember opened at 2S.S5. low for the day. and sold as high as 20.97, closing slightly under that level. The weather was as a rule quite fav orable, not enough rain having been re ceived to do any particular harm, while the outlook was for fair and slowly warming up. Advices from th spot centers told of more resistance from producers to the cheap prices and sell era were deterred thereby, for there Is also a little better indication of buy ing, spot shorts taking offerings more freely. In Houston sales' for the day were reported as 10.S50 bales and quo tations up 2." points, middling 2. 60. Dallas did the biggest day's business yet, sales being 1.174 bales and quota tions up 30 points, middling at 27.15. New Orleans sold 304 bules and quota tions were unchanged. In th local market sales, which con tinue nominal.

Louie Young Dies; Former Popular Negro Fighter Louie Young, one of the most popular lightweights of Memphis, died suddenly Wednesday night, following a stroke of paralysis. He will be buried Sunday, according to present arrangements. Six years ago Young was a regular at the Southern A. C. and engaged in some of the fastest bouts in the divi sion. On a trip to St. Louts he was., framed and came out of the match with his eyesight impaired. Some say dam aging liquids were placed in the water. Others maintained that snuff was smeared on his rival's gloves. At any rate he went blind and never has re gained his sight. Young sat in at the show Monday night; heard the plaudits of the crowd and probably pictured himself once again beneath the arclight's glow. Tuesday he was around the club and Wednesday he was present for . the workouts. That night he died. NEGRO LYNCHED. HOUSTON, Tex.. Sept. 17. Oscar Boaslcy, negro.
