Market Letter on Cotton.
By private wire, J. K Latham ft Co.
Nbw Tonx, December 29. Feeling In
the market today waa decidedly bullish,
For the first timo in weeks operators
came In with tbe Intention of advancing
tbe price, There has been an absence of
business for somo weeks but now It
looks u it there would be business
enough to put prices up before the move
ment picks up enough to stop the ad
vance. The statistical position la ftrong
u long as there i no weight of cotton
felt, the tendency should be toward an
Improvement. There Is a general feel
ing that the market will do better, that
we cannot see how an -advance can be
prevented now that fotjr buying hu
star.ed, The pollpjf of taking profits
hu keen prevented for some time. We
would bny o all weak spots for a time
and see what the outcome will be. Jan
uary la still unhealed and it la possible
the present advance la not going to last
long. This will of coarse be true If the
movement gets larger;,. It Is larger than
a while ago but not enough to prevent
an advanolng nwket. Now as the mar
ket !l advancing we think If you buy on
any breaks we, think you will mske good
profits. The lone today wu strong and
business better. -That is all we need to
pot the market up aowvjProp views are
getting unsettled and spin's r4; uii com

week, 'which Is usually the liveliest in
all the year, wu anything but .tame in
this ordinarily tranquil little town. We
have had more than our pro rata of ex
citement, and now that it Is all over, oar
nerves fill ' back into their every day
condition with a dull thud. Chriatmu
day was an Idle one. The weather wu
clear and cold, and the country was
covered with snow. Itwu a day to re
mind one most keenly of the origin ot
this great festlval,and one which prompt
ed him to Join heart and soul in singing
the beautiful anthem "Peace on earth
good wil to men,"-Following will be
found a few of the events which served
to render the week a memorable one at
In all prohibition towns, with possibly
a few exceptions, there Is elwsys a living
aggressive, and irrepressible evil, com
monly known u the "Blind Tiger." To
the uninitiated it may be well to at ate
that the"Blind Tiger"is only a nick name
for a place where liquor is retailed with
out license, and In open defiance of law
and order. Black Mountain being a dry
town, hu alww boasted such a luxury,
and all the efforts of government sleuth
hounds to Weak up tbe evil, have hereto
fore proven impotent and unavailing.
Trap after trap hu been set and sprung,
but the bird always escsped. Scheme af
ter scheme hu been set on foot, but
nothing definite resulted. The liquor
continued to be sold, In quantities either
large or small to suit the purse of the
Last Tuesday night, however, wit
nessed a decided change of conditions.
It saw the "Blind Tiger" bearded In his
den, and his abundant supply of moun
tain dew confiscated by the ruthless ser
vants of Uncle Sim, d only two days
before Cariatmu 1 On Chrlstmu morn
Ing there were bright faces and happy
hearts a plenty In the town, but there
were also dry palates, and hard words.to
burn It was truly a dry Chrlstmu for
more than one.
The circumstances leading up to, and
Including the raid on Tuesday night are
briefly as follows:
Immediately north of the Mount Mit
chell Hotel is a cottage owned and occu
pied In summer by Mrs. James Weather-
J . . .... T. T . ,
ley oi Birmingiiam, &ia. uunug- mo
winter for the sake of protection the
cottage lis occupied by a man named
Tirney together with his family. Tirney
Is a man who is always on the lookout
to stake a dollar. With him possession
Is nine points of the law, consequently
the exact manner in which he makes the
dollar outs little or no Ice. The important
thing with him is to get it, the manner
In wh'ch it is got, is a secondary con
sideration. : In casting his eyes around
for a soft easr war to get a living, his
mind hit npon the Idea of running a
"Blind Tiger-" That wu several win
ters ago". Suffice it to say that he acted
on tha thouzht and since (hat time he
hu been conducting a flourishing bus!
ness in defiance of all laws both State
and national. ' Last Tuesday night he
saw his flnlshA It requlru but a few
worda to tell how it happened. When
the train from Asheville rolled in en the
day in question three grim vlsaged men
alighted at the station. Who they were
or whither they were bound ho body
knew. But they soon laid to rest U
doubts as to their Intentions. Wlihost
a moment's hesitation they went ' as
straight to Tlrney's home m their legs
would carry themj, Once ' there, In the
name of Uncle Sam, (for they were reve
nue officers) they began a Bearchofthe
premises. In a short while they unearth
ed sixteen gallons of sore, genuine, un
adultrated mountain dew. ThN they
promptly took In charge, and when they
returned to Aahevllto took it along with
them. In the meantime Tlntey made
good his escape to the mountains. There
he hu been in hiding since Tuesday
until today when he was Captured by a
crowd who were hunting him. He wu
taken to Ashevjlle and wlll oo given a
hearing tomorrow. Thus ilendeth the
harrtnroNi uncheckered career of the
Black Mountain "Blind Tiger."
