Post and Flagg’s Cotton Letter.
New York, Aug. 20. —The cotton
market was firmer during the early
trudiug on covering promoted by a
somewhat bullish weather report in
which stress was laid on prematures
opening and shedding as a result of
excessive heat and drought. Weevil
damage, however, remains light.
Later prices eased off again on de
tailed weather report showing cooler
ev rywherc and scattered rains at
numerous points in Texas.
There was a fair demand from the
, trade and from mills to fix prices and
jit is believed that many resting or-,
j ders of tha t sort are in the market
(just below current levels, but there
is as yet no demand that will follow
advances and that will hardly be in
evidence until, both trade and, specu
lu<ive shorts see more cause for an
xiety than at present and feel less
confident of a flood of selling against
the crop to start in the near future.

Judge Caldwell Finds Guilty' of Vio
lation of Child Labor Law In Div
ing Exhibition at Y. M. C. A.
William Dilger, on trial Wednes
day afternoon in charges which grew
out of a swimming and diving exhibi
tion of his four-year-old girl, June,
at the Y. M. C. A. last Friday night,
was sentenced to ninety days on the
roads by Judge Caldwell.
Dilger’s attorney, M. B. Sherrin,
gave notice of appeal and bond was
fixed at S2OO.
Three counts were brought against
Dilger. They were for violating the
child labor law, assault on a female,
and assault with a deadly weapon.
He was found guilty by Judge Cald
well of violating the child labor law
and the two other counts were dis
The case came up as a result of the
insistence of Dilger at the exhibition
that his daughter dive from the spring
board. When the child wept, specta
tors became incensed and had the
warrant for assault on a female
Testimony brought out at the trial
by the persons who, witnessed the in
dent was that .when the child
objected to making the dive from the
spring board which is five feet from
the water, he insisted, telling her that
she had dived from higer places than
j that. There was no evidence that
he offered any physical violence as
had been previously reported. Testi
fying for the state were J. W. Denny.
Mrs. T. N. Spencer and Mrs. Ralph
Mrs. Ed Cook, who lives on East
Depot street, declared that she saw
the child fall from the hood of the
automobile where she had been riding
to advertise the show, and that Dilger
did not pick her up. The child was
then placed back on the hood of the
automobile, where she continued to
ride. This evidence was brought out
in support of the attack with a dead
ly weapon charge.
The defense called J. H. Brown,
county welfare officer. Mr. and Mrs.
Bandon Means and Sheriff Caldwell
to the stand. A letter was read by-
Mr. Sherrin from Dr. C. W. Arm
! strong, health officer of Rowan eounty,
and also from" the state welfare com
| mission. Dr. Armstrong in his let
ter declared that the performance of
the child was not injurious to its
health. '
In making his decision. Judge
Caldwell declared that it was as “clear
in iny mind as the sunlight on the
wall that this is a violation of the
chili labor law.”- ’<• ,

With 800 Men Out, Trunks Move as
Usual and Extra Police Have
Nothing to Do.
New York World.
New York learned yesterday how .
to get along without baggage transfer
companies and save money doing it. \
The strike of the SOP drivers, help
ers and clerks of the New York
Transfer Company, and the Westeott H
Express Company, which had begun at i
midnight, did not make a defat in the |
life of the city. The strikers stayed
at home or went fishing or to ball I
games. Taxicabs and independent
trucks moved tlie trunks and other
luggage the strikers ordinarily have
At the railroad stations there was
no congestion of baggage and no
shortage of cabs. Incoming baggage
and baggage to be placed on taxi
cabs was hustled by red-capped por
ters, who made more money than at
Christmas, when the rush is great and
travellers are in a giving mood. The
taxicab drivers did well, too, for in
adijition to the usual tips, they col
lected even better tips thuu the strik
ers averaged for helping get trunks
into homes.
Even With this, tlie traveller with
one trunk or two small ones save
money, unless he lived in the Bronx,
for the charge, fixed by law, for tak
ing a trunk on a taxi is 20 cents, aN
against a minimum of $1 to have it
moved by a transfer company. The
only difference is that the transfer
company is obliged to put the trunk
in one's house and the taxi man is
not. But witht the prospect that his
palm would bo crossed with silver, lie
usually was willing tto oblige.
The hotels cared for their guests’ I
baggiige without difficulty. The com- j
mereial houses, whose employees had !
sizeable loads of trunks used trucks j
to move them. Neither they nor the
taxicabs were molested by anybody,
the police on duty as a precautionary i
measure finding nothing tot do.
“It's the most ladylike trucking l
strike I ever heard of.” one of Com- :
missioner's Enright’s finest on duty at
the Pennsylvania Station explained.
