, - Washington, Nov. 80th.-Befare ! the
present session of Congresa passes into
history President Taft will have proba
bly broken all records for messages to
one body.' He has seven of them in
mind and there may be even more.
These long series of Presidential ad
dresses to congress Is the result of cab
inet suasion. Every member of that
advisory board advised Mr. Taft to cut
the message now in the hands of the
press associations for distribution down
to the last word:- They wanted it read
and they knew that if it is short enough
the people will read it. After listening
to the members of he cabinet, and af
ter reflecting upon his past experience
with long messages, the presi ent de
cided about the last minute to cut ev
ery thing out of the annual message but
his trust viewd.
But messages are to come. Some of
them will be longer perhaps than the
initial message, wliile others will be
very much shorter. The messages
which Mr. Taft will send to Congress
beforo the holidays will discuss the fol
lowing questions of legislation: y

New York, Dec. 2. Cotton has fall
en below the nine cent level owing to
the increasing pressure from the South
to sell. Of course, there has also been
more or less telling for short account,
but this has been limited ta a small
number of operators. Spot markets in
aeveral cases have declined under the
wt ight of a liberal crop movement and
a tendency to increase the size of the
estimates of the crop. The New Or-
tears Times-Democrat put it at 14,835,-
000 bales exclusive of linters, and re
packs. Some have figured that this real
ly means an estimate of something like
ir,30(),000 bales. A Texas estimate was
as high as 15,815,000 bales. The aver
age estimate of 183 members of the
New York cotton exchange was 15,238,-
000 bales. December notices amounted
to at least 30,000 bales and being larger
than expected, a more or less depress
ing effect. New low levels of prices
have been large. Following the decline
in raw cotton, the trade in c'btton gjods
is said to have slackened somewhat and
a large Chicago house is said to have
made a downward revision of domes
tics. Northern spinners' takings con
tinue to run considerably behind those
of last year. Rumors are in circulation
to the effect that the next National
Ginners' Association's report will show
a large total. Manchester has been
quiet. The spot sales in Liverpool have
been small, Wall Street and Waldorf-
Astoria interests havesjld to some ex
tent. There is talk to the effect that, a
superabundance of low grades exists in
the present crop, and that this i a
weak feature. On the other hand, the
continent is buying freely in Liverpool
and is taking considerable quantities of
the next crop montns nere, particularly
October, but also September as well as
July and August. October is in such a
demand that it has been selling at 12
points over July, whereas in recent
years July has sold at 200 points over
October. August has been Ave points
over July as against 20 points under Ju
ly a year ago.
These premiums on August and Octo
ber at this time of the year are most
unusual and reflect the urgency of the
demand for these far off months, Al
ready it is believed that the continent
has taken several hundred thousand
bales of the next crop months. The
sales of print cloth and convertible last
week reached the big total of 15,000,
000 pieces, or more, Many think that
the crop is being overestimated and
that the censm report on the ginning
on December 8th and the Bureau of Ag
riculture estimate of the crop on Dec.
11th will tend to make this clear. The
recent cold weather is believed to have

Washington, Dec. 2-Witha plea that

George von L. Meyer, Secretary of the
Navy in his annual report to Congress,
declares that while seeking peace and
playing a leading part in the movement
for general arbitration treaties the
world must understand that - America
"ia prepared for war. " The short life
of a warship for first or second line of
defense approximately twenty years
has caused the Secretary to ask more
ships this year, not to increase the navy,
but to maintain it at. its existing
strength. This strength, he says, is
being diminished by the elimination
from active service of the battleships
first constructed for the "new navy.'
The deficit of the Federal Govern
ment continues to grow. Up to date
the disbursements of the current fiscal
year have exceeded the receipts by

Namara pleaded guilty ' to murder in
tbe first degree in Judge Walter Bord
well's court yesterday, His brother . .
John J. McNamara, secretary of the
International Association of Bridge and
Structural Iron Workers, entered a
plea of guilty to having dynamited the
Llewllyn Iron Works in Los Angeles
on Christmas day. 1910.
John r B. McNamara's confession
clears up absolutely the tragedy of the , ,
explosion and fire which at 1;07 o'clock :
on the morning, of October , 1st 1910, .
wrecked the plant of the Los Angeles
Times, at First and Broadway, and
caused the death of twenty-one per
sons. For 19 of these deaths the Mc
Namara brothers were indicted and J. ,
B. McNamara was on ti.'M specifically
for the murder of Charles J. Hagger
ty, a machinist., whose body was found
nearer than that of any other to the
spot where the dynamite was supposed
to have been placed.
Both men's sentences were set for
December 5th, when it is expected Dis
trict Attorney John D. Fredericks will ,
ask for life imprisonment for James B
McNamara, the confessed murderer,
and probably fourteen years for his
brother, The men's lives are consider'

agreement- '.; :i' ;'

that something startling would develop,
and so closely guarded was the infor
mation that the spectators were pre

case of the people against him wherein
he is charged with having destroyed the
Llewellyn Iron Works."
