CONSISTENT RISE MAI)E Jui
New Orleans, Aug. 7.-The low
prices of this last week in the catton
market were made on the opening
session and the high pricef on the
closing sessions. From the lowest
to the highest there was a rise of
128 to 146 points. The close was at
net gains of 127 to 136 points. At
the lowest levels the active months
were four points under to five points
over the close of the preceding week
and at the highest they were 127
to 144 points over. October traded
down to 11.64, rose to 13.10 and
closed at 13.02. In the spot depart
ment prices gained 125 points on
middling which closed at 12.25
against 36.75 a year ago.
The opening session of the week
brought a bulge of over a cent a
pound because of the bullish show
ing of the government figures on
rhe growing crop and much more!
favorable annual statistics than ex
pected. The advance was kept going
by the hot and dry weather in the
belt, especially in the western por
tions, and complaints that it was
causing severe deterioration. Hot
winds were complained of at times
in the eastern belt, but during the
last half of the week large areas
east of the Mississippi river received
showers. Extremely hot 'weather
continued to the end of the week in
the west iand the closing session
brought official weather returns
showing temperatures of 100 and
above at many points. Texas re
ported temperatures up to -16t de
grees and Oklahoma up to '109.
Tlle foundation for the week's ad
vance was laid by the government's
report of 64.7 per ent,' of nornal as
.io.f the crop '6n.July 25,
and ivas fully three points-nim!er
f.eneral expectations. It indicated a
crop of but 8,203,000 bales, and if
these figures are realized it will
mean that the South has grown the
smallest crop in 26 seasons.
The outstanding feature of the an
nual statistics was the carry-over of
9,194,000 bales, which was the larg
est carry-over on record, was far
under expectation. The trade gen
erally looked for at least 9,500,000
bales and there were estimates of
around 10,000,000 and a few as high
as 10,500,000. The commercial crop
was smaller than expected, 11.377,
316 bales against 12,443,180 a year
;n ,o, but was offset by the small con
sumption, 10,500,000 bales against
12,670,000 last year. These figures
related to-the cotton year ended with
