New Orleans, -t)ct. . 2. An advance
from 90 to 92 points over Saturday's

trading on the market here today.
This was followed by an almost insat

a flutter on the Wilmington market.

But News and Observer Beat
Them to It Linney Will
Get Big Reception.
Raleigh, Oct. 2. The Republicans
Have made certain their big day Mon
day when Frank A. Linney. their
candidate for Governor, will speak to
the Eastern North Carolina Republi
can clubs and to the Wake county Re
publicans. The Republicans are deeply disap
pointed at their failure to lease the
Auditorium in time to head off the
News and Observer. The local news
paper is using the home this week
for Mrs. Kate Brew Vaughn who will
give lectures and coking demonstra
tions in it throughout the week.
Chairman Ward of the county execu
tive committee made an ineffectual
try for the big house in the middle of
the day for two hours. He failed
there and he will either present his
attraction in the Academy of Music
or in the county court house. Both
places will be many times, too small.
It is a bad break fr the Republi
cans. It ruins their opportunity to
make a reat showing because nobody
can guess how many are here if the
houses don't hold them. The Re
publicans had "expected to affright
the Democrats with the demonstra
tion. The normal 5,000 Democratic
vote, Republicans say, wiirfali off so
perceptibly this year that the highest
