an association to eliminate he middle

reaping profjta before the products each

The five hundred dealers are divided
Into seven groups. Each group is re
quired to pay into the coffers of the as-
sociatioit a percentage of its grots re
ceipts, vatyiog from six per cent, for
grocers to fifteen per cent, for drug
gists. The fund thus created is divided
into six parts, four of which te put
aside for distribution anvmg the con
sumers, coo part being spent for adv r
tising and one part for administration
and operating expenses. Each associate
member, or head of a family, receive a
coupon from the dealer, whenever he
makes a purchase setting forth the
amoont of goods bought. At the end
of Stated periods the consumer surren
ders his coupons to the -association to.
serve as a basis for computing the re

the cost, of living by these refunds

That the situation in Tripoli is critical
is evidenced by the fact that "most of I
the Italian residents ' and many of the
Europeans have taken a hasty depart
ure The Turkish authorities in Tripoli
have so far maintained order, but there
is a veritable panic anoong the foreign

, The Italian government, is backed by
the newspapers of that country, but
the British press has severely arraign
ed Italy for what it terms "precipitate
action," Germany, which has beth in

peaceful settlement, has so far failed
to make progress and some of the
German papers are biiter in their de
nunciation of Italy's method.'
The latest dUpntches make no men
tion of ths landing of Italian troops,
which Turkish officials declare would
be accepted as the beginning of hostili ties.

Wilmington isTired of IJeing Poiu-
ted to as Bad Example. Forty
Nine Alleged Violators.
' Wilmington, Sept. 29th. Forty-nine
alleged violators of the State prohibi
tion law, one of the number a member
of the grand jury, "have been indicted
.and true bills found against them by
the grand jury and 25 of the number
got word that indictments had been re
turned against them and went to Sher
iff Cowan's office, accepted service of
the capias and gave the $500 bond re
quired of them for appearance at next
term of Superior Court when they are
to be tried. Others to te arrested to
day.. Indeed in the list are some of
those often referred to as "the big
near beer dealers." -
While it is not known just what evi-
ence was brought out before the grand
jury, it is surmised that true bi l were
returned largely upon tl e testimony of
agents of the transpoi tation compa
niea who were summoned to tell of the
receipts of whiskey shipments in Wil
mington the past two yeats, and that
of Chief of Police, John J. Fowler, who
was summoned to give s ! list of those
in Wilmington who bold United States
license to sell spirituous liquors.
The act on of the grand jury did not
come as a surprise. It had been expec
ted. Even two or three weeks agoT be
fore the present grand jury was .selec-
tel, it was generally believed that a
strong effort would be mude at this time
to secure action against eome of the al
leged violators of the prohibition law.
The defendants themselves seemed not
the least bit surprised sad apparently
had made all arrangements to give
bonds. The amount tf he bond was
suggested by Solicitor Henry E, Shaw
an 1 is the largest that has been re
quired in this county in such cases since
the law went into, effect,
The public was so wed prepared for
the action, against the alleged violators
that even the announcement that a
grand juror was among the number
created no great amount:' of surprise",
though the fact that a member of such
a btdy was indicted by his fellow mem
bers on so serjous a charge was gener
ally remarked upon.

tie American navy is the opinion of
ordinance officers assuming that the
French vice adnvtal Bellue, was right
in his declaration that it was due to the
lecomponiiion of the powdtr in the Li-
berte's magazines. American naval
ordinance experts have been trying for
years to make American smokeless
powder ignite spontaneously without
Commencing upon the or ler issued
by the French admiralty fortheremovr
al from the Medilterancan fleet oi all
smokeless powder made prior to 1302,
it was said at the Navy Department
here that there was a good deal of pow
der alloat in American naval vessels
more than nine years old yet the de
partment was satisfied o( its peifect
safety. Every bit of powder in the na
vy is under a'most constant inspection.
When a lot of powder is made it is Riv
en an "index" number and the depart
ment knows where ev ry grain of it
goes, bimples of the index are kept at
the Indian Head powder factory and al
so at the magazines from which the
powder is issued to the ships.
When harmful changes ure noted in
puwdc-r the order goes out immediately
to every ship and magazine for the re
turn of all that index number to Indian
Head, where it is ground up and worked
over into new stock. So the navy de
partment officials feel that the Ameri
can bluej lcket can rest assured that, at
least so far as spontaneou-j combustion
is concerned, he is in no danger of be
ing blown up by his own powder.

The wea h;r has been gerally favor

steady sellers. Liverpool and the con
tinent have sold. Memphis has sent a
gool many selling orders. Crop ad
vices from Texas, Alabama, Georgia
and the Carolinas and other parts of
the belt have in the main been cheerful.
As a rule, the spot demand has I een
disappointing. Spinners, ee ring futures
rapidly declining have generally been
pursuing a waiting policy. The weak
ness at one time in the stock markets
at home and abroad, the rise in bank
rates of discount in Europe and the
outbreak of war between Italy and Tur
key have had a more or l iss depression
that the buying capacity of large por

Prices have had a severe decline
which in the judgment of many call
for a rally even if it is rnly tempotary.
Litter ly the mills have been calling
cott n more freely. A noticeable in
creased demand for f p t cotton has at
times prevailed at New Orleans, Mont

market has Bhown more resistance af
ter a recent decline of $5 a bale. It is
estimated that American exports of
cotton goods to the Far East during the
present month amount to 60.000 bales.
The sharp rally in the stock market on
Wednesday gave more or less encour
agement to the bulls in cotton. Missis

of weevil and worms. There has be en
somj buying on the eve of tie govern

bears, it is argued and cause a sharp
upward turn. Certain meial interests
