If' JHm" There was a strong and active market (or
Si & rtooks to-day. The buying was of a substantial
,vJBt abai-acter and operators for a decline appeared
r emir ST abandoned, at least for tlio pros-
fif Dt n'r fort to break down prices.
I !y & For one thine, they found conditions opposod

Ji, Bj(, ceed In dislodging Ions stook as thoy had ox
j BV peetedV, About all that ther accomplished, was
HS doTelop decided resistance by the markot to
!B$ fttacki upon It. A matter upon vrliloli ovl-
;BS dentlr ther bad had plaaed not a little
Hgf" tellanee, was the alleged dliturbanco In rail
K! road rates. It was soon discovered tnnt
jHS-" most of the stories of rate Irregularities
m? were untrue and that there was no probability
.BW Of widespread rata troubles. As a fact, rate
JBjf' trotting Is at n minimum. Not In years has
f there been so little of It.and tho reason IsnotdIN
WfiX floult to flud. Hates are woll maintained bo-
i ;.j Hfl eanse trafllo Is so hoary a largoly to romovo
'i?jB;m the lneentlre to cut them either br secret or

sssw?" business to so around that rates are most llko
, Big ly to be unstablo. That Is not the case now,
t mfl tot the railroads aro oxporlenclng dlflleulty In
& obtaining enough cars to handle their tonnage.
I If There Is so much traffic In slclit that It would
i iV seem as If tho rate situation must continue good
iW for an Indefinite porioil. The speculators with
i&, bearish propensities also wero disappointed In
k the failure of money to contract again. Tlioro
If wan less Inquiry for time money. Indicating

'' ' 3si liberal supply that rates were shadod. Foreign
,, 'Q financial affairs showed a distinct Improve-
l fi, tnent. The Bank of England kept Its discount
j if rate unchanged and reported a material addl-
I y Hon to Its reserve.
i J JT The dealings on the Stock Exchange were
t j V the lamest In eomo time, and wore well dls-
j f tribnted throughout tho list. Tho railroad
I . B. stocks were more prominent features than
I L ' Sj they reaently had been and the advanoes In
j i ' S aeTeral of them were substantial. Among tho
', ' f :v, ones whlah made notable gains were Baltimore

The trading In ootton was leaa active to-day but
the tone waa better and the greneral trend of prices
waa upward. The opening waa Irregular and waa
followed by s alight docllno on lower Liverpool
cable,, private reporta of rain in Texas, and local,
foreign and southern selling. There waa no great
pretturo to sell: however, and later on a demand
from Wall street and aorao ( arly local ecllers caused
a rally In which the early decline was fully recov
ered and a nioderato advance eatabllahed. Tho
official weather report ahowed only ,46 of an Inch ot
rain In Teias and fair wiather was predicted for ths
next 80 hours. Homo advice, reported material
damage by ths drought and heat in Texas and other
portluna of the southwest. Toward the close a little
selling by local scalpers canned a partial reaction.
AtmcaTA, Oa., Aug, 14. "There la no question but
that tteriou lrrepalrablo damage has occurred. It Is
impossible for tho fields between Bpartanburgh to
Augusta to make moro than an a erage of one bale to

heretofore averaged fully a bale to every four or five
acres. Many field, have half tbs cotton on ths

mentioned until Hept 15 to 26 : aavr picking In sev
eral fields. A careful Judge of ootton, juat returned
from a week spent In Newman, Qa.. aud Opellka,
Ala., atataa crops at Opellka very apottod, and not
as good aa laat year. Both no and our New
man, Qa., b over, state that It Is the
poorest crop around Newman ever known
at this time of year, and poorer than
Opelka crops; also that cropa from Atlanta to
Augusta aro exceedingly small and poorly fruited.
Cropa on stiff lands, that thirty vo forty days
ago noeded moat favorable condltioua, have
bad Instead, absence of rain accompa
nied by high tomperature for two weeks,
and hot winds for nearly a week. Rlnre 11th
Inst, there have been rain, dally in all our territory-,
but too late for plant In Piedmont district or stiff
lands. While cropa on eandy and gray Unde were
good, they deteriorated rapidly by shedding during
extremely hot weather, and windy refered to."
