Mr. Bully spent the day with cotU
factors and buyers here, with whom 1
discussed the existing situation, at
cotton matters generally. In an inte
view tbia evening he aaid:
"1 think the Goveroment crop repo
was incorrect. Iustead of condiiioo
crop being 71,2,1 am sure that it
nearer 68. My opinion is based on tl
reports received irom mymany corr
apondents throughout the cotton beJ
if farmers will hold their cotton uni
November 1,1 am sure they will recer
near 11 cents for it. Even if they hoi
on until October 15 the price will sta
upward. I predict cotton will be ?ei
ing at 14cents before Christmas. Tl
condition of the crop is not known, tl

Atked how the people of the Sout
were helping him in tills campaigi
Mr. Bully said: "They are contributir
right along and a large fund of -th
kiud is of great benefit to the opera to
who for tne first sixty days nag ;i

Sully and several friends drove 01
to nearby cotton farms this afternoc
