NEW TORK, Aug. 29. August cotton sold
st 20 cents a pound In the New Tork cotton
market today on urgent demand from spec
ulative shorts who had postponed covering
until the last momen t In the hope that
the Increasing new crop movement In the
southwest might break the control of the
bull leaders. This price, the highest
reached for cotton for any delivery since
the civil war and exceeding by nearly 2Vfc
cents per pound the highest In the famous
bull year of -903-04, which until now stood
as a standard for comparison, was regarded
by many as the culminating point of the
bull movement In progress hers for the
last six months, during a season, which,
when it ends next Thursday, will go down
as the most spectacular in the annals of
the cotton trade since war times.
Not a great many bales perhaps 15,000
actually changed hands' on the advance
from '16.82 cents, the. closing' of last week,
to 20 cents for August this morning. .At '20
cents' sn offer from W. P..' Brown, one. of
the bull leaders, to sell 100,000 bales checked
the upward movement and It was the gen-,
eral Impression around the ring that this
was a level fixed . in the open market as a
basis for settlement of the . entire August
interest remaining. ''." .
' Later, however, . this view of the situa
tion - was 'somewhat shaken by the fact
that after reaching from 20 cents to 18.20
under scattered selling Of a few hundred
bales, August again advanced on renewed
buying by shorts, touching 19.90 in the
afternoon, or within 10 points of the high
record. At the close August was quoted at
19.76 bid, while the new crop months.
which had been very quiet all day, were
only four to nine points net higher.
. ... ,,t .,, ..-.,-.-"..
' Advance Mostly Local.
In the local spot- markets the price was
marked up to 19.75, but the southern
spot markets showed no such gain, the
greatest advance recorded being o at
Savannah, showing the local character of
the extensive advance.
In all the bull leaders have handled spot
cotton to the amount of 800.000 bales,
valued approximately at M5.000.000. But
the bulk of this has been shipped abroad
and Just how much of It has been actually
sold and how much of It may now be
held on' consignments at foreign points Is
uncertain. Inasmuch, however, as the
bulls have handled contracts for many
thousand 'bales in excess of those upon
which they have actually received cotton,
they have undoubtedly taken large specu
lative profits, no matter how their deal
may turn out when their last bale of cotton
has been sold. In the New York stock
they still own about 100,000 bales.
Rumors circulating tn the trade, after the
close of business today was that there
was still considerable August short Inter
est outstanding which has until noon
Wednesday to cover.. At that hour trading
In August Is over and with It ends all
business of the crop season, l'JOO-10.

In the southwest, deterioration has been
reported In that section, but weather con

sidered much more favorable, and some
reports have shown considerable improve

be Issued at noon Friday, and owing to
the conflicting nature of recent private
advices, opinion as to the showing vary
Bolls' Work to Continue.
It is understood In the trade, however,
thst the operators who have gained such
prestige on the bull side of the market
will now turn their attention to bulling
new crop months. They have issued a cir
cular outlining their reasons for expeot
lng higher prices, but that this action on
their part was not unbiased was naturaUy
suggested, as any statement tending to
enhance the value of the new crop would
make a better market for winding up

CRIPPEN IN LONDON COURT
Dentist and Companion-Charged with
Murder of Belle- Elmore.
DOCTOR CONTEMPLATED SUICIDE
Note Fonnd by Detective Indicates
lie Intended to Jimp Overboard
Both Prisoners Are
LONDON, Aug. 29.-Both Hawley H. Crip
pen, the American, doctor, and Ethel Clare
Leneve, his typist, were accused of the
murder of Belle Elmore, the former's wife,
In the formal charge read to them In the
Bow street police court today. Miss Leneve
was charged also with haruorlng and main
taining Crippen after the crime and while
knowing fiat he committed it.
During proceedings Inspector Drew, who
brought the prisoners back from Canada,
Introduced evidence to show that Crippen
contemplated suicide, while at sea, follow
ing his flight from this country. Crippen
was quoted also as declaring that his com
panion knew nothing of the trouble In
which he was Involved, and Miss Leneve
was ssld to have protested her Innocence.
There was special Interest in the character
of the formal charge, as the Canadian war
rant for the arrest of the fugitives had
merely landed at their door responsibility
for the death of an unknown woman, whose
body was found In the cellar of the Crip
pen home at HUldrop Crescent.
Sapposltlt'ons Identification. -
The fact that both were today accused
of the murder of Bella Elmore, the actress
wife of the doctor, leads to the supposition
that ths mutilated body has been identified
to the satisfaclon of the authorities. It
also suggests that the police believe they
have further evidence concerning Miss
Leneve's connection with the tragedy than
they have made known heretofore. Today's
proceedings constated of ths introduction of
evidence against the accused, at the con
clusion of which they were remanded until
September 6, without having pleaded or
made any comment in reply to ths charge
