New Tork. Aug. 3. Domestic cotton
circles, and the entire textile trade of
Europe are watching with great interest
a new struggle, which is being wagtMl in
the cotton pit In this city. In Importance
and In extent of the wealth behind the
confl'Ltlng factions, this contest between
bull and bears outranks the famous July
cotton corner of two years ago.
D. J. Sully, a leader In that deal, and
who was deposed. Is again In the ring
heading a cllnue of bulls. Edwin Hawley.
Joseph Hoadley of International Power
fame, and their friends are also said to be
associated with the bull forces at work.
More than these two cllqnes is the New
Orleans contingent, which Is here In full
force, yellow fever bavins; driven many
active business men North. Besides these
factors, the commission-houses of Dick
Brothers and Atwood. Vlolett a Co. are
arrayed on the bull side of the market.
Against this, horde of capitalists and
speculators In cotton there Is a strong
force of bears pressing the market down
ward with all the strategy of years of
experience and great fore of wealth.
Theodore H. Price, who once forced the
price of cotton to 11 cents a pound and
then unloaded. Is asaln arrayed against
his old enemy of the Pit. D. J. Sully. Ed
win Weld. Temple Gwathemy. the "Mr.
Cotton" of the turf world: "BiUy" Mitch
ell and other powerful traders, are on the
same side. Assisting them Is the Liver
pool market, which has turned bearish.
Associated with Mr. Sally, but In a dif
ferent pool, is the famous New Orleans
group, who cornered the cotton market,
two vears ago and made several great
bear houses settle at fancy prices. Manv
of these men are now here. Colonel W. P.

"I have Just seen for the first time the
revise.! cotton acreage report bsueil for
tho I'nitcd States leiartment of Agri
culture on July 26. The Crop Estimating
Roard reduces tbe official estlmntc of
June 2 by more than 1.10.O acres, and
even goes so far as to say that I tns.c'e
the estimate lower than the reports re
ceived from official correspondents em

"To this statement 1 give unqualified de
nial, and assert that the most trustworthy
of the various sets f figures, on which
the report of June S wan based, affords
the most ample warrant for my estimate:
MUST DISREGARD SOME.
"It Is only by an entire disregard of the
reports of county and township corre
spondent that the department's acreage
report" can be prevented from once more
becoming the laughing stock of the world.
When cot-cornert only with the condition
of the crowing crop, except under special
circumstance tho report for county and
township correspondents arc not without
value. When, however, these cortvjipond
dnt report either upon the acreage or
upon the size of the crop In hales, their
report aro absolutely worthless.
"FVr Instance, tho crop last year was
estimated bv township comspondents at
less than l.Mviv bales and by county
correspondents as les than ll.efl.0 bales.
Failure n the part of the board to recog

Iltnltlef ability to pay for the purchases.
Motent fluctuations marked the trading.
To-day the bull Interests sent out stories
that a drought In Texas was burning up
the cotton crop, and that the situation was
Back and forth the market moved, re
flecting the keenness cf the straggle be
tween tho two great interests.
Mr. Price has reversed his market po
sition within the last few weeks. Hitherto
he has been prominent on the bun side
of the market, and la said to hare mad
nearly a minion dollars.
When the market touched n cents a
pound, or slightly below that flgure. ne
sold his enormous holdings of cotton sad
turned bearish. Now he Is hammering the
market tooth and nail.
"English spinners." he said, "ara not
buying much cotton at the present level
of prices. They bought abundantly at
lower figures, and I think they hare
enough for their Immediate requirements."
On the other hand. Mr. Sully said: "Con.
dltlons In the South, so far as this year's
crop is conccrne.1. are deplorable. The
spinners of the world have booked rough
orders to require at least a 12.0CO.0a-bale

bales of that amount. There Is going to
be another cotton famine."

BULLS ACTIVE AT NEW ORLEANS.
New Orleans. La.. Aug: 2L To-morrcws
Times-Democrat will say:
"Bullish activity, which played the star
role In yesterday's cotton market, boost
ing future XI a bale, was lasUsated by the
bull crowd now stirring up New Tork.
and there was every evidence of full cote
cm cf action. Professional opinion, as a
whole. Is n't yet unanimous on the
stgnlflcance of recent events, but conserv
ative operators admit, perforce, that the
opportunity for at least a short bull cam
paign b at hand. Sosse early cprtonl la
sure to carry the mark undt-slrable. The
demand for dry gords and the strength of
the dry Roods market Is the talk of the
talent the world over. The new crop In
sight ts gescrally admitted to bo short.
"Recent cotton-market history has giv
en the farmer the Idea that by holding
his cotton the spinner may be forced to
do extraordinary stunts In the way of
price boosting. Assembling these various
factors, a well-orcanhtrd and wealthy
bull pen! might easily flgure out some big
paper proflts. provided the farmers be
rounded up at the proper time by the
proper scrt of speculative advice.
Hold your cotton and we'll whip the
bears naraln would prove a popular slogan
with the men who held cotton and be
came rich last spring. This. too. oa the
heels of hlstorlcni advice to 'bum the sur-
elus and rout the bears. Thus manlpa
dlon. strategy and the psychological mo
ment might be turned to good account, but
In the end factors over which neither the
bull nor the bear exercises control must
govern. The magnitude of the crop Is not
yet known. The ability of the spinner to
meet hi engagements and also refuse to
buy more new cotton during an effective
period of time Is a more or less unknown
"Those cotton growers who promised to
voluntari'.v reduce acreage 25 ner cent and
then fought the elements against a IS per
cent weai rer oecrease may or not am tne
speculator In his efforts to push the actual
stuff above th attractive figure of 19
cents. Meanwhile the Illogical disparity
In the New Orleans spot and spot month
price Is causing some rather caustic crit
icism. Just so Ions; as the owner of spot
cotton may sell the spot month option
agnlnst his holdings at a gain of 3 points
official spot quotations wlU not reflect the
true condition of affairs.
ln the last analysis, notwithstanding
the preponderance of crop damage reports
and the sharp Impetus recently given bull
ish sentiment, there are entirely too many
ifs to be taken Into consideration to war
rant the assumption that the bears cannot
again become a powerful factor until the
price shall have climbed materially
