New York, Oct. 2 One of the most sensational advances in the history of the cotton market attended the pub lishing of the second government re port today.

Jumps Up at New Orleans. New Orleans, -t)ct. . 2. An advance from 90 to 92 points over Saturday's closing was in evidence in the early trading on the market here today. This was followed by an almost insat iable demand stimulated by the figures of the government's report. The government report also caused a flutter on the Wilmington market. As. soon as the condition figures, showing dropping off of the crop since the last report, . became known spot cotton took a jump up. It was quoted at 15 3-4 before 1 o'clock and held that position at the close of the market this afternoon. This figure was the top one f pr Wil mington this year.

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 man will not receive a 1,000 majori ty.
