Columbus Enquirer Run: Whether It Is because they ore In actual no,si of the staple, or whether they believe that the market Is going to continue to advance ll Is a fact that the Columhus cotton mills have atarted to buying the new year’s crop of cotton. The mills have been In clined lo hold off and wait until the mar ket has gone down, hut Instead of drop ping. the fleecy staple Is acting Just ex actly as a kite In a real, brisk, lively lit tle gale—lt Just keep* on going up.

The warehouses were easily the buslc*t center*, and many thousands of dollar* were paid out there forthe fleecy staple. And never were people in belter spirits.)

The report of Ihe Belgian Antarctic ex pedition which wu puhliahed recently In Brussel*. la of .pedal Interval for Ihe reason that within a few month* three more expedition.—one English, one Scotch and one German—will .tart for the south polar region on similar exploring mission*. It I. perhaps too much to ray that the at tack of these four expeditions t. a com bined one. A. a matter of fact each of the four was organised and planned quite Irrespective of the other. There was no concerted arrangement a. to the different point* of exploration. The circumstance that each planned to approach the pole from a different direction la purely a mat ter of chance. But It wra. a fortunate chance. The Belgian expedition Marled from Ant werp on the apedally equipped .learner Belgtea on Aug I*,. 1897 During ftfiea-n month, when for the greater part of the time the lt< Iglra was fast ha lted In tha* south polar lee pack no tidings whatever cants from the explor ers. It was not until nearly April of last year that new. of their safety came They had escaped from the Ice pack with th" Belgtea Intact and with the loss of only one man. who had suecumtied to the cli mate and to the depression Incident to the long Imprisonment wnd constant peril. The expedition was commanded by M. de Oerlachc with t.leut. George Lecolnte. a Belgian who had served In the French Navy, as second officer. Its original pro gramme Included two summer campaigns, one was In the direction of Victoria Land to the east and the other In the direction of Graham 1-iutd to the west. It begin and ended wtih Graham Land exploration owing to ihe rapture of the Belgtea by the Ice and her detention a* a prisoner for up ward of a year. The German expedition, which Is to start early next year, w.ll he under the direction of Prof. Z. von Drygaskl It proposes to approach the Antarctic sone to the south of ihe Indian ocean near Terminus Island, and on the prolongation of a meridian that would ras* tlynugh Slam and tho Island of Sumatra Tht. Is exactly opposite the Pnlmer and Graham Land reg on. where the Belglra started her explorations. The English exi—dltlon organized by the Royal Geographical So ciety will start toward the pole from tho neighborhood of Victoria Land to Ihe south of the Polynesian sea The S-otch expolltlon. under William Bruce, will ad vance frrm Graham Land on the oppo site side of the pole from Victoria 1-and. the English point of and picture It Is the object of all three expedl'lons to study the geegraphlea) conftgura lon of whaf Is suppesed to l;e the great Antaretle conti nent and also to examine It* geoloclcsl formation and especially to make mag netic, meicrolngleal *tyl or. anographleal observation*. It la thought that the uni ted work of the three expeditions, nil working with similar Instruments and ac cording to practically the svme system, will bring very valuable r**ult*. The question of reaehln*.’ the pole I* another matter and 1* not proclaim'd a* the great obfeettve of either party of explorer*. Writing of these three expeditions and of the result# of the Belglca's voyage. M A Pastre tn a recent contribution to one of the leading French periodical*. says: "Geographers generally admit the ex istence of an Antarctic continent having ll* center at the South Pole. The South Pole differs In this respect from the North Pole. If Ihe North Pole. In fact, la In the water* of a more or less frozen ocean, the B>uth Pole Is. on the other hand, on solid land, land that I* frozen as are the wa'ers of the Ncrth Polar sea. It 1* true that this cmcepilon of the two pole* Is based on theoretic reason ing. but It l* reasoning that Is very strong, which, up to the present time, no ascertain-d fad ha* overthrown. "The first result of Antarctic explora tion* was to confirm Ihl* theory of Ihe terrestrial conformation of the South Po lar region os opposed to the marine char acter of the cap that covers the polar region of the North. The problem that future expedition* will have to solve Should be lo determine the configuration of this froaen continent, access to which Is nearly everywhere barred by Iceberg* and vast flelds of Ice pack. They should determine Its extent and outline It* shore*. Up to Ihe present time It never has been reached except at Isolated point*. It Is not known whether these shore*, only seen In a fragmentary way. belong to Island* or lo the vast conti nental mas* whose existence Is admitted led. Are these solid threshold* against which Ihe more fortunate navigators have stumbled al wide distance* apart—Adelle Land, discovered In 1840 by Dumon* d’Ur ville; Sabrina Land. KndrrhY Land and Graham Land, all discovered by Blscoe In 1832, nnd Victoria Land, discovered In 1841 hy Cap!. James Clarke Ross—are these the shore* of a eontinent or of a polar achlpelago? Do they form around the Booth Pole a more or less solid gir dle. or do they resolve theinselve* Into Isolated Islands 7 "What Is certain Is that land* mtilllply and become concentrated Just In propor tion n* we approach the pole. If we ex amine the southern hemffcphere. we ob serve that the non-*ubmerged land ends very pear Ihe equator. The remainder up to the neighborhood of the polar cir cle offer* lo the view nothing but on Im mense stretch of water The African con tinent ends at the Cape of Good Hope In latitude 34.31; that I* to styy. It doe* not extend any further below the equator than Morocco I* above it. Tasmania, which may he regarded ns a prolongation of Australia and of the Asiatic continent, does not extend beyond latitude 43.30; that Is to say. it doe* not reach half-wu/ to the pole. South America alone throw* off It* southern extremity. Cape Horn, as far south a* the tlfty-slxlh parallel and I* sill) a* far nway from the South Pole as Scotland I* from the North Be. yond these three continental projections and up to the polar circle—that Is to say, up lo the seventieth parallel of latitude —we meet with nothing but the Immense mass of th# antarctic water* dotted here and there with rare Islands like mere •peck* upon their surfaces. But once we have crossed the circle the scene change*. Land reappears In all direction*. It emerge* all about u*. We have there the genuine southern continent: Its ma** Is Joined under Ihe water* with ths rest of the solid earth of which Aala. Australia, Africa and America are *he cropping, out rldgea visible above ihe surface of Ihe oi-ea n. "Following tha* Idea we may regard ti e solid part of the globe as a triangular pyramid, of which the summit touche* the Houth Pole and whose base form* th* glacial see of Ihe North Pole. The- side* of the pyramid are more or less depressed to form the basins of the ocean*. On he other hand, th* mass of the waters, of which the surface la that of a spheroid, so tit own* this solid earth that nothing ap pear* above th* aurface save the three continental ridges and the antnrllc point. k Thl* conception of the general con figuration of ihe earth and of the waters tnereof Is to he credited to an English man. Mr. Ixtwthian Green. who advanced It In 1975 and lias labored ever since to Justify It. and with a certain success. It Is kneovn under the name of the tetra hedron. But what |* hypothetical of the solid earth to a tetrahedron as the ex planation of the means by which the orig inally spherical crust of our globe took on this singular form It Is the progres sive cooling of the globe which brought about this metamorphosis. By reason of the construction of the shell, as a result of this cooling, the crust, which Is rela tively thin, being no longer supported, gave wav and hent. It acted then, ac cording to the familiar and very applica ble comparison of Mr Iwllnmand. like me rubber membrane of a balloon. wno; swellings and depressions, when It is carefully dtslnflated, do as a motter of fact sensibly reproduce the figure of a tetrahedron This deformation of Ihe crust is a.-compsnied hy fr.-- • ures of the surface, covings | n and diver* accidents following alwnvs the line or least resistance. „ch is the theory of the earth's formation which up to the P "Lv n * <tay reign* in science. rhe supposition that a south polar con tinent exists is, then, a consequence of the tetrahedron theory of the earth's for mation. It I* a conseqflence also of a very general law which seems to domi nate the history of the formation of our gw>tw and that Is that wherever there Is a prominence on the surface there Is a ror rcs|K>nding depression on the side diamet rically opposite. This law of the recipro cal opposition of elevations and depres sions at the extremity of the same diam eter has very few exceptions, and where there are such exceptions they are expll •- able by Intervening disturbance*. n right In line with this law that we ahould find a south polar continent above the sea as a complement to the depression which makes the basin of the glacial sea at the north polar end of the earth's axis. "The observations made by the Belgian expedition are favorable to Mr. Green's tetrahedron theory, but these are obvious ly not sufficient to put ihe accuracy of that theory beyond discussion It ivili require numerous and fortunate observa tions to decide It definitely. I'nder this reserve. It |* permissible to say with M Arctowskl, one of Ihe two geologists and meteorologists who accompanied the ex pedition. that In the region through which the Belgtea passed ’everything tended to confirm belief in the existence of a conti nental mass to Ihe south.’ " Of one thing the Relglca explorers are sure, and that Is that If there I* a gr-at Antaretle continent It Is covered with a thick covering of snow and Ice. The best weather they got during their long impris onment wa when the wind blew from the south, because It was a dry wind and It brought elear skies Hut It was bitterly cold, as If It had swept hundreil* of leagues of bleak leefleld*. whereas the north wind, blowing off thousands of miles of water, raised the temperature several degrees, although It brought with It such penetrating Icy fogs that the men of the Belgtea welcomed the return of the colder but clearing winds.

New York, Sept. 10.—The Intensity of ex citement and activity of speculation on Ihe Cotton Exchange to-day were without a parallel. Fluctuations far exceeded any thing on record, the extreme being 100 points with relapses frequent nnd violent. The market opened Irregular and excited with prices 43 lo 61 points higher on an irresistible rush of buying In which everv branch of the trade took pait. Sellers were few and far between and without excep tion parties having heavy profits within reach. Many of these Immediately took Ihe bull side again nnd were still iong nt the close to-night. Following Ihe call the market seesawed ala breath-taking rate with the movement In the main gradually swinging toward higher prices As the morning progressed speculation broadened until the market was beyond the control of even the hulls. Sensational setbacks fell In the nerve-trying bulges which kept operators of no matter what belief on the Jump to keep pace The English market showed corresponding gyrations and pri vate cable# denoted complete chaos In Liv erpool wllh Ihe hulls, however, being car. rted along by the advance. On the local exchange September sold up to 10.50 c. .is against 9 50c Saturday night. The be*t level of ihe later month* wo* 50 to 7i points above Saturday’s final figure* The foundation of bull Ideas and the chief cause of th# terrific hull speculaiion was Ih* news that the beat section of th* crop cotinry had been swept by a tropical storm. th equal of which was not known Reports from Central Texas were vague and totally unsatisfactory, which fact tended to Increase the fears of shorts and tho big crop theorist* In general. Liver pool was similarly Influenced, a* well a* the New Orleans market. Estimates (minting to a loss of 760.000 to 1.000,0K1 bales, and the nnouncemeiH that apot cotton was In enormous demand South at •jiA,c higher prices Intensified the con victions of Ihe bulla. The government report for 1 September, usually the most important of the season, cut comparatively IMtle figure as on Influ ence. The general condition wa* given al c- as against 76 Inst month, In Sep tember last year, 79* In ISW, and 7*3 In 1*97. This average Included 77 for Texas, us contrasted with S3 on Aug. 10. and 01 on Hcpt 10 of last year. Al 12:05 p. m. the failure of L. O. Behlf fer and Guy L. SchlfTer were announced, these broker* being caught short by the opening rise. The announcement of their suspension did not seriously disturb the market as they were known to have un- Imimrtaut obligation* outstanding. The bull fever reached Its hight In the las* hour, end under a slight flurry of proflt l iking near the close price* settled back a few points. The close was Irregular and excited wWh prlcea net 16 <o 90 points higher. Estimate* placed Ihe total trans actions at 1.250.000 bales, or 150.000 more than ever before recorded.

Sept. 10 —Murphy A Cos. say: The advance In the Liverpool cotton market of !7-32d on spots, middling 7'w. 24-6td on flepiember-October, and 16 lo 1,-611 on remainder of the list, caused this market to open about 6) to 50 point* higher, nt which there was heavy realis ing sa’e* and wa* followed by a reaction of about 15 point*, after which the mar ket ruled active and nervous The havoc In Texas and uncertainly about extent of damage to crops, was the principal cause of the excitement in Liverpool, and thl* market and the government bureau of 65.2 wa* also a supporting feature. Cot ••■n In Liverpool closed at a net advance, 16 point* Sept, mber-October. and IS to 24- 64d on the rest of the list The bureau re port Issu'd at noon gave condition J against 76 last month, and 6*.5 September a year ago. which wa* lower than expect ed and caused an Improvement of about 8 point* during the afternoon The strong etatlstl-a! po-liion In England and anx iety about Ihe Texas crop coupled with the low condition given hy the bureau cause* a very anxious feeling about the prohahle sze of this crop If under ten million seems likely, may cause a further advance In price*. New York, fepl. 10—Hubbard Bros and Cos sty: The heavy storm In the Gulf and the damage supposed to have been done to the crop In Texas, caused Liverpool to advance repldly. until Kept and Hept-Oct. were twenty points and the remainder of the market twelve lo fifteen points higher than Saturday. Our market about sixty lo sixty two points higher, then re-aeid flfierg t© twenty points, and ha* since remained nervous fluctuating In a radius of about ten to twelve points. The government bureau report Issued at noon, gave the condition as 68.2, against 6*,S same time last year, and 76 on Aug flrat last year. This wa* construed as* very unfavorable and prices advanced on It some five to six point* The feeling among operators Is very nervous, and we think most of Ihe short Interest has been covered.
